The "other thing" the PS4 doesn't do.

143d ago ... The Playstation 4 has been out for a few months now and I don't care. I'm content with my PS3. Let me clarify though, I don't care NOW. I'm sure I'll care a little when inFamous comes out and a little more when Batman is released. I'll care when Final Fantasy XV shows up and I'll really care, if and when, The Last Guardian gets made. And really, this is what has happened since the dawn of gamin...

What Xbox One Price Cut?

153d ago ... For the past week, I've been hearing a lot about a price cut on the Xbox One. I keep hearing about how it's the fastest price cut in console history, and how it can mean only one thing - desperation. http://n4g.com/news/1463596/microsoft-says-xbox-one-price-cuts-are-not-out-of-desperation So, I decided to do some research on the matter: I checked Gamestop's website. Still listed at $...

Xbox One is doing just fine

162d ago ... Lately, there's been a lot of negative news about the Xbox One. One point however, seems to imply that the Xbox One is selling poorly, especially in comparison to the PS4. There are knee-jerk reactions from some people, saying things like "MS needs a price drop immediately", or "MS should stop including Kinect with Xbox One". However, when you look at the actual numbers, things are looking v...

The Identity of N4G

168d ago ... I've been a part of News4Gamers, a.k.a N4G, since Aug. 17, 2007. That means a long time; not the longest but long enough. I've been here for the Open Zone and the original fanboy trolls that no longer post here. When you've been here long enough, or possibly lurk here long enough without joining, you'll see a common statement made these days. "Screw this site, it's filled with Sony fanboys"...

Next Gen Ports: Why I'd Happily Buy Them

171d ago ... As someone who has bought a PS3 and Xbox 360 I've played my fair share of games, some of them I've loved like the Mass Effect series for example, I've had years of pleasure from my first steps on Eden Prime to the Infamous ending at the Crucible, But I've had more than enough time to enjoy myself and move on to later games. Now this is not a feeling I'm having with the likes of The Last Of Us a...

Why I chose Xbox One

179d ago ... Ever since Sony announced the PS4, the decision on which nex-gen console to choose had been plaguing me. Like many, I was a PS2 owner who switched to Xbox when Halo 1 arrived on the scene and later purchased a 360 when that came out. I was always happy with my 360, but occasionally I'd look over to the Sony camp and become a little envious at all the Naughty Dog action going on over there. T...

Sony, We Need To Talk

182d ago ... I was just reading the article here on N4G where Sony said they don't expect the Vita to sell as much as the PSP and I was pretty disgusted. It's the inspiration for this blog and I will cover a few things I am either disappointed about with Sony, or what I would like to see them do. Sony, you need to stop half-a$$ing your handhelds. If you don't intend to throw your full weight behind a han...

Dear Sony: greedy isn't cool

189d ago ... My beef today is with my favorite console manufacturer. Or at least they were my favorite during the PS3 era. I feel let down. I feel like I bought a Porsche... but its not a well-made Porsche. That's not cool. My DS4 controller thumbstick rubber is wearing thin. It's even beginning to tear on the left stick. The battery runs dry after what seems like about 2 nights of play. The but...

Sony Too™

191d ago ... I'll make this short and sweet (yeah right. I'm always too verbose): We all have favorites. We're gamers, and we're passionate about our hobby. It's only natural to have a favorite. And that's fine. But when your favorite company does something shady, let's acknowledge it. Acknowledging the problem is what allowed the Xbox One to avoid being a completely melted carapace of failure. Ack...

Hard reality. Marvel vs Capcom may never happen again

208d ago ... Despite many fan requests for more DLC for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 or a potential third release, Capcom didn't budge. Now the Marvel license has slipped from their fingers. We are back to the drawing board. A PC release looks like it will never happen (I'll bring this up later). We will need either a PS3, 360 or Vita to be able to play UMVC3 since the successors are not capable of playing o...

It’s 2014, What game are you waiting For? And Why? Is it really a good game, you sure about that?

210d ago ... You know, it’s funny but I’m really starting to wonder about games these days. I mean were finally here in the nex gen, but it’s really not even feeling as good as last gen. At least not yet. Maybe last gen spoiled me, but I have not played anything as good as the blockbusters I was playing at the end of last year - GTA V, The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite, Battlefield 3. I’m going to tel...

Can I make a suggestion, Nintendo?

229d ago ... It's been a while, hasn't it? You know... life 'n stuff. But I got another thing to talk about, and I'll keep it brief so I don't bore you to death. Lately, everyone's been getting all in Nintendo's grill. Considering them DOA, so to speak. Now despite the fact that my primary console of choice is the PS3, I have nothing but fond memories and respect for the Nintendo consoles I have man-hand...

The 3rd Times A Charm, The PS4 Is In A One Horse Race

235d ago ... The way it looks now the PS4 is about to handily outsell the Xbox One. This will be the 3rd time in a row a Playstation platform has outsold a Microsoft platform. This generation looks to be more of a PS2 type victory than a PS3 type victory. 1. PRICE It's the most obvious so I'll start here. The PS4 regardless of everything else it's better at, is cheaper. This is the first thing uneduca...

PlayStation: A Well Rounded 3rd, 2nd, 1st Party, Indie & PC Developers' Platform

237d ago ... The 3rd Party Developers If you study carefully since day one of the original PlayStation Sony let 3rd party developers take center stage spotlight before their 2nd and first party. Its has been their strategy since day one. Their relationship with 3rd party developers is second to none! A strategy completely opposite that of Nintendo. And the strategy ever imitated by MS even to the po...

Wii U Review: Ask yourself how much are you willing to pay for Nintendo’s 1st party

237d ago ... Nintendo is having a hard time with their console right now, and for anyone asking himself or herself if they should buy a Wii U you should first ask yourself this simple question. How much am I willing to pay to play Nintendo’s 1st party games? That simple question will determine when you should buy a Wii U. Games and Promises Nintendo‘s main goal for the Wii U was to move away from the st...

Wii U: The Power of 2

241d ago ... I bought a Wii U. The console is sitting comfortably in my cupboard, still unopened with a copy of Super Mario 3D World, while I feverishly try to clear my backlog of PS3 games. Once I'm over and done with my PS3 (Dark Souls II being the exception) I can finally well and truly say I am ready to join Next-Gen with the Wii U and the PS4. So let's talk about the Wii U, shall we? The Wii U...

PS4 doomed to have only few games? Worrying trend

245d ago ... PlayStation has a library of 2,418 games and PS2 had 3870 games. It took $5-$10 million to develop a PS2 game versus $0.8 million-$1.7 million for the original PlayStation [source: sciencedirect] . In June 2009 Ubisoft reiterated that major titles for PS3/X360 cost $20-$30 million to make and that games for the next-generation may exceed $60 million [source:edge-online]. It is common sense t...

An Xbox-only Gamer's Move to Playstationation

255d ago ... As the sun sets on the current generation, I reflect on the last 7 years of my gaming life. I was a spritely 14 year old when I got a 360 in 2006. I saw some great times with the 360. I think about my love for the fable series (fable III is a myth), the friends I made playing the gears series, and hell, I was just playing halo 3 the Thursday before PS4 launch. I've also had brief run ins with P...

How to Spot a Liar: the Green-Eyed Monster Strikes Again

258d ago ... “Jealousy, that dragon which slays love under the pretense of keeping it alive. ” ― Havelock Ellis I give both Sony and Microsoft grief and praise when I feel they need them, so it's no secret that I was very upset about Sony charging for their online, talked about the PS3 being my last console, eventually being won over only to the degree of Picking up the PS4 in the future and not on the...

'Oh Noes! PS4 Exposed!' The recent craze in gaming reports.

261d ago ... If you've seen recent reports about the PS4, you'd know that the PS4 is apparently going to 'spy' on you and will block used games according to the European ToS for the PS4. Where do I begin? First off all, you guys know that these were the exact same ToS in the PS3 right? Secondly, can we drop the PS4 DRM conspiracy theory? Because Sony confirmed that the PS4 has no DRM back in February and...
