The Here and Playstation Now

104d ago ... If including everything available for both the Playstation 2 and 3 at launch, they’d be considered some of the consoles with the most robust libraries during their respective releases. This consideration isn’t due to an explosion of newly-released titles but rather in their focus on providing 100% backwards compatibility at the time. This was a consistent feature for Sony until PS2 compatibil...

Digital future will be bad for console gamers

180d ago ... Australian PSN and Xbox Live users get the jitters when some point to the inevitability of digital downloads. Let's take the PSN store for example, for a quick comparison of some new and upcoming releases: PSN: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare - $99.95 Lords of the Fallen - $89.95 PES 2015 - $84.95 GTAV - $99.95 Now here's the comparable prices for disc editions from major retailers: C...

Cloudy Days and the Silver Lining of the 8th Console Generation

191d ago ... With the 8th console generation about a year into all consoles being out in the wild, many of us are excited about the future these machines hold for our entertainment. There's a lot going on and a lot that's happened recently, so let's talk about some disappointments that have upsides. Every cloud has a silver lining and I love being optimistic about the state of the industry, so here are some...

Digital Market Offerings On Consoles Is A Failure

217d ago ... I'm going to start this blog off by saying F.U. Sony. Yep, you read that right. A big F.U. to Sony. I bet you're wondering why I, whom everyone insists is a huge Sony fanboy on this site, would say such a think right? Well the answer is because Shadow of Mordor is $70 here in Canada, and that's everywhere. Now I have known that Sony increased game prices in Canada awhile back, but up unti...

Digital Overspending

228d ago ... More and more, gamers are going the digital distribution route for their games. While it certainly is a convenience and often a deliverer of great game bargains, there are a few things that I feel need to be pointed out as a matter of consumer interest. For some, it may prove to be insightful, but at the very least, I hope you find it to be interesting. Digital downloads, by their nature requir...

Pre-order Madness

238d ago ... Pre-orders have certainly changed. Growing up as a gamer in the 90s and early 2000s, pre-orders were just a way to ensure you were able to get a copy of the latest and greatest title on launch day. Fast forward 20 years and pre-orders play a different and more pivotal role in a game's development and marketing. It is not uncommon to have games being announced that are more than a year away f...

Marvel Taking Control is a Good Thing

471d ago ... So, it's been awhile since I have had the time to really buckle down and write up something new for the site, but I have been keeping up with recent developments regarding a couple of subjects that I really want to talk about. One of these subjects particularly is that Marvel was taking down various titles within digital stores at an alarming rate. Steam, PSN, and Xbox Live saw titles like Marv...

Rant: Where is the Gaming Industry Headed?

547d ago ... Am I the only one seeing this gloom and doom trip that everyone's going on heading into the next generation? Because it's been beyond noticeable to me. Whether it's people saying that consoles are going to be taken over by smartphones, or that gaming development costs are skyrocketing continuously, a lot of people are saying that consoles are going to die out, that digital distribution is go...

Console Contradiction

583d ago ... This is my first blog post, actually its my first post period. So please bare with me. I'm about to talk about the 2 next gen consoles. With Gamescom, TGS, and E3 all finished, I think its fine to compare the consoles now. Of course with new information coming out each day, we can never know what to expect. The PS4 could suck with one post, vice versa with Xbox One. So here's my story. My...

Vita and Wii U; Same Problem, Different Solutions

668d ago ... In all fairness, I do not yet own a Vita. I still intend to get one (most likely after I get a PS4); a platform of its nature will undoubtedly have the potential for great content. So far, the games I wish to get for mine include Persona 4, Tearaway, Gravity Rush, Muramasa: Rebirth and any of the transferable Playstation 1 and digital PSP/Vita games sitting in my PSN account. For me, this will...

How Sony Won Next-Gen In 120 Minutes

694d ago ... After the mixed reviews Microsoft conference got, everyone naturally turned their eye to the next big conference; Sony. Speculations were running rampant, even more so than it was before the platform was first introduced back in late February and expectations were going higher and higher every passing minute, leaving everyone asking the same question at the end; will Sony be able to deliver? Th...

My hopes for the Sony E3 press conference.

700d ago ... It is now only five days until E3. With almost every publisher announcing something big as well as the next gen consoles being shown this might be the best e3 yet. My hopes for the conference is that Sony will show a LOT of games. Not just more gameplay off the titles they have already announced but new games that haven't been announced like Quantic Dream's, GG's and ND's new IP. Saying th...

8th Generation - The Generation of Blood

700d ago ... Looking back, the 7th Gen of gaming was fairly tame. No one actually "lost". Wii, PS3, 360, DS, and PSP each carved out a respectable market, and a few of these (like the PS3 and 360) are still getting big-name releases. Sure, there were times of drought. Sure, there were moments when a console got bruised (like RRoD, or the PSN hack), but no one failed outright. It was the first time that had...

Really only 65 PS3 gamers have moved around the world in the last few years?

702d ago ... I recently moved and in moving I happened to change country, change continent and change PSN region. Moving, even when it’s thousands of miles away is not such a big deal. Yes, packing it’s boring, yes, it takes time to feel at ease in the new home but all in all it’s always a good feeling to wake up in a brand new place. And I adopt the snail approach, always bringing my “house” with me: I pac...

To buy a Vita or Not to buy a Vita.....That is the question!

722d ago ... Today, while I was working hard at note taking in school (and by note taking I mean being on N4G, GiantBomb, etc. and taking video games notes :D) I came across something in my PM box! I've used my PM box numerous times to have multiple discussions with friends, fellow-gamers and mods on N4G, outside of commenting on certain articles (which I can't do much of anyways with only 3 bubbles :/), bu...

Can Hacking/Piracy Be Considered Acceptable?

735d ago ... So with the recent news of the Wii U's supposed hacking, I thought I would ask the question presented in the headline while providing my own thoughts on the matter. Piracy is something I think almost any big gamer is guilty of at one point or another and whether they know it or not. Downloading a free game or perhaps playing a copy that friend made for you, for instance. The use of ROMs, ISO...
