Hahahahaha, god, the Sony press conference has been a blood bath (for Microsoft).

I am not sure if I should be excited about Battlefront 2142, on one hand: I'd love a new battlefront, on the other: It's DICE.

 DICE = Frostbite = No Dx9 Support = I can't play = I have to buy a whole new PC just to play = F.T.S.

 Besides, EA will make the game turn into Star Wars: Micro-transactions. The last thing I want is another money/time sink to play (I am having a hard time getting over STO already.)

They should just retire the Xbone.  There's no way to recover from this.

Indeed.. wow. It was one thing when speculation was that Sony would follow suit of some of MS's bad decisions since people were thinking it was a publisher led innitiative. (The DRM stuff) Seems that's not the case. I'm left wondering what MS was is thinking...

To clarify for the thread... Xbone is waaaaaaaaay too expensive ($499) with all that DRM. Sony is at a decent price ($399) with no DRM. Both consoles targeting the same market (assuming Xbone is still targeting gamers at this point).

Yes, a very good press conference.

I think the Mad Max trailer was a hint... why to use one bullet if you can use a buggy to flatten Microsoft...

I was throughoutly impressed with Sony. Maybe I set the bar very low or expected things to be over fairly quickly but it just kept going and going and more really interesting titles being announced. I have a Xbox 360 (Conveniently RROD'd on me a few days back, will be a month or so till that's repaired) but I definitely am not going to buy a Xbox One, glad to see I won't be missing out on a lot of titles as aside from Halo 5 I didn't see any exclusive that could be considered a 'buy on sight' thing, and I don't mind passing that. Not even sure if I'll get a PS4 but at least it'll be a good candidate.

I'm very curious how Microsoft will respond, they better bring out the biggest PR guns and find a way to spin that they came to reason and remove the DRM and other restrictions. Still, companies don't like to change their ways.

Also, I really expected Sony to follow suit with Microsoft, just be one step less intrusive, the 'good cop-bad cop' or 'three steps forward, two steps back' idea of forcing stuff onto customers, good to see they don't appear to be playing that game.
I'm all about getting the most out of games, so whenever I discover something very strange or push the limits, I upload them here:

Progress in our world will be progress to more pain."

The only thing I do not like about the PS4 (and I am getting one, no doubt about that) is that it's gonna cost 399 Euros as well (Which, given current exchange rates, is equivalent to 528 USD).

Uhm. First DX10 GPU's were released about 7 years ago. I don't think you have any room to complain if DX9 is no longer supported. It's a good thing.

I know Nintendo's not doing a full-fledged press event, but I really hope they have something of note during the reveals they're doing.  I want a reason to buy a Wii U. :(

Pikmin 3, New Super Mario Bros U, and (surprisingly) Nintendo Land were fun enough for me already. Not to mention the handy Netflix/Amazon Prime Instant Video tacked on. But then.. the only consoles I buy are Nintendo ones... love me some Zelda and Metroid. As long as those games are fun and exclusive to Nintendo boxes, I'll probably be purchasing them.

Given the confusion over how sharing games will work in the next generation, Sony put together a step-by-step tutorial on sharing PS4 games.

Okay, so here's new BF4 gameplay trailer. http://youtu.be/IEZhbV9s1Ag

Now I don't really care about BF franchise much, but remember that Dragon Age and Mass Effect games will be using same Frostbite engine as BF4. So I watched the trailer and couldn't help but drool thinking we'll get DA and ME on same technical grounds.

And without further ado, Dragon Age trailer. http://youtu.be/rh8v3Et4tGE

There's been some rumors about DA possibly having multiplayer too, something like ME3 did. If true, I might end up wasting hundreds of hours playing it.

From what I've read, the Plus subscription grants you free games as well as good deals. Long-term it should pay itself back if you make use of the bonuses it has.



Less than 5 bucks a month isn't much.
