Cliff Bleszinksi: 24-hour check was “pretty silly,” My money is on PC, mobile and tablets for the near future
My money is on PC and ps4
You'll have to shout louder, I cannot hear you over that revving Lamborghini......
Lol that's not a lot of money. I work minimum wage in Canada and I own all consoles a PC and plan on a ps4. And I'm putting myself through school. Anyone can achieve anything if they have the drive :3
A tablet over my PS4? Oh HELL NO Cliffy B... what are you smoking?!?
Cliffy is such a Sony-Hater. It's obvious. He NEVER says anything good about PlayStation, and he hesitates, until forced by peer pressure, to say anything negative about Microsoft. If we need a poster-child for fanboyism, he's it.
My money is against Cliffy ever getting a job as good as at EPIC games.
Please stop giving this guy publicity.
Well said. He is trying hard to sound like a douche. Typical case of too much money harming someone's mind.
Seriously. Just stop. He's even more vocal after supposedly leaving the industry.
Thank you... I swear this guy has become annoying as hell.
I agree. PC and PS4 cross-platform play seems like it's gonna be a bigger part of the next-gen for Sony. #1 on my list is War Thunder. The new players on PS4 will get eaten alive when they are starting out.
I don't know why people keep sking this guy for his opinions.
I already have a PC. In this case a Mac and typing with it now. So my money now goes to PS4=The PlaySavior 4. The more these M$ clowns talk the more they contradict themselves and make a fool of themselves. CliffyB, If you can solve games piracy on PC like Sony did with PS3 Such a sour grape loud mouth you have turned out to be, CliffyB
No love for 3DS or Vita?
Same here I only plan on having a PC an a PS4. I will also get a tablet later this year but that's not for gaming.
My money is on PC. Free dedicated online!
Shut the hell up, quit talking out your neck about an industry which in the diarrhea of the mouth you've admitted to have negatively contributed to - AND DO BETTER! If the only way you can actually make a game is through higher production costs and a larger staff which you insist wont be worth the return - THEN GET OUT OF THE FREAKIN INDUSTRY! If you can't tell - and obviously *YOU* can't - that needs to change. It has to become about cheaper production values and more value in the actual game, or just cheaper games. Flashy, empty plots based around 1D characters and gimmick gameplay was the wrong path to take - and *YOU* were one of the idiots who insisted on that route.
This a-hole needs to gtfo here fast.
My money is on Kaz, Shu and Jack. They just helped save the gaming industry from anti-consumerism and being controlled by the arrogance of people like Cliffy B, Major Nelson and Don Mattrick.
"They just helped save the gaming industry from anti-consumerism" So that's why they are making us pay 60$ per year for online gaming?
Nobody can make you do anything.
More like 50$ a year, and PS+ is a steal at that price! I got about 50+ titles in one year from plus, games like spec ops, uncharted 3, and sleeping dogs.
XBL - You get play online. PS+ You get to play online and get 50+ games a year, free themes, beta access, discounts on games, cloud storage, doesn't block netflix etc. w/o it and free avatars. So yeah. Even though paying for online access sucks, PS+ is so pro-consumer it's not even funny and is the best way possible for Sony to implement an online paywall. They actually like gamers and it shows, w/ situations such as this one.
Well it was either that or follow Microsofts plan They needed a way to bring in an income to keep up with MS so they don't take all their income. It was either follow through with DRM or make people pay for online Besides it's not that bad, you get your moneys worth unlike Gold and you can go on the internet, watch youtube etc without plus.
You only get 50+ games a year if you have a PS3. If you are going to be new to PS+ with PS4, you get 12. The first is a partial version of Drive club, and most of the rest will be smaller downloads. If you are trying to attract new customers, PS+ won't have nearly as much value as it will for the longstanding customers. I will be one of the people coming from the Xbox 360 to PS4, (never had a problem paying for Xbox Live and don't have a problem with PS+) Just want to remind all the Sony fans that telling the newly converted how big a value + is, it won't be as good as you are saying.
6 people who agreed with you have a case of listening to one part and ignoring the rest. Let me guess you don't free like games or discounts ? Sureeeeeee. They will say anything to argue, pathetic. Virtues Last Reward is coming next week = )
Oh 'free games' and 'discounts' that we pay 50$ per year for, how free they are. And the best part is when you quit the service, the 'free games' do not carry on. Oh thanks Sony./s I know it's a good deal for certain people, but I am not interested in it. They shouldn't force us to use services like this, they should rather make it optional.
@plazehd -bit of a moot point there because you rarely play a game again after the first couple of months. So it doesn't matter if it expires after that. You'll only see how good it is once you actually have PS+, it is much much better than it was when it first launched.
Yeah, cause for 50$ you should keep everything you get from the service. The whole point of it is to keep you on the service not to let you take shit and leave. The games you buy discounted you keep forever.
"helped save the gaming industry" lol please stop.
The normal response to my comments. One liners!!
Yes Dloc, nobody can make you do anything. Yet instead of just not buying an Xbox One, people complained constantly & made them change things the supporters accepted.
This guy just talking smack out of his moutb everyday -_-.
I wish this guy would keep his mouth shut.
(off topic) I think gohan adult should have gone ss3 after kaio training eventually. And vegeta after he kept up with kid buu when gokou was out. he damn near died. Damn you toriyama. (on topic) So i say the prince and gohan go ss god on these ****** and destroy a turtle to let them know you mean business son!?
No, he was already stronger than a SSJ3 as Ultimate Gohan so there was no reason for him to even transform.
For God sake Just Shut UP!!!!
This guys needs to make up his mind. First, he is all for MS's policies. Now they're silly?
Can you blame him. He's been making games which are exactly like the ones he's talking shit about this past generation. I swear to god this guy doesn't even know what to hate, or he hates everything. He finally admits to knowing the problem, yet goes off on rants to insult the gaming public. What the hell happened to this guy? He used to be more respectful towards people.
this is what happens when you give a average joe a little bit of attention they think they are the the next nostradamus
Cliffy is a nostraDUMBASS.
Quatrain X:00000001 Through the spite of the Red Haired Fool supporting the lesser one, He will be quoted, presenting the "There aren't enough gay characters in videogames. That's right, I said it." to him: The father of entertainment altars wishing to impress nobility on the ONE. Does as the Ps4 did of yore in Xboxlandia.
Wasn't he defending DRM and other shenanigans from MS recently?
What happened to the good old Cliffy B? :/ I miss that guy. He was humble, funny, and just all-around cool.
Special needs people made him rich.
it's too bad dildo bats aren't the future because then he'd be out of the industry in a heartbeat instead of running his mouth all of the time.
You guys really don't like Cliffy here on N4G lol
Didn't he defend DRM?
So it's back to square one? Don't get your hopes up, tablets & mobile textnecks epidemics (Look up 'TEXTNECK') are on the rise...it seems mobile and looking down to a tablet screen isn't too healthy, in fact you risk F'ing up your neck for the rest of your life. My bet is on the big screen and PC/PS4...like cinema the safest bet. Watching a big screen on eye height & sitting down is the best way to game and watch stuff..Doctors agree. But he's right in one thing...motion controls like Kinect have no future in games. Only with and in the movies.
The two markets coexist, several coexist in fact, even today. Anyone claiming a future comprised of only one thing is just exaggerating and making it seem like everything else will become obsolete. Some markets may gain more influence over the other. It's a fluid industry. Trends change. How companies adapt to that change is what determines their success in all of it.
@Rainslacker Trends change....they sure do, like Mobile/Kinect/DRM being the hot new toys to being old news, but consoles and big screens remain hard to beat...just like TV & the VCR never killed Cinema. We still prefer the big screen when we see a movie for the 1st time. Trends do change...the TEXTNECKS are coming...be afraid, be very afraid muuuhuhaha. (i'm joking a lityle dude) I just do not like Cliffy's Sweeney story about DRM/Mobile/Cloud that's all. I'm a big fan of Gears of War and Cliffy and Epic made a big mistake with Gears of War Judgement...it is he cannot make up his mind. like with the constant changing of the Gears of War Multiplayer mechanics...he f'd that up royally too.
My Money is only and exclusively on Ps4, nothing else. Simple and safe. PC = Business machine, you pay only the "brand" and materials of the components. Xbox One = only for shooterfans.
I want to see Cliffy B and Jonathan Bow in a celebrity Death Match with Chainsawgun and everything. These two clowns are the two biggest trolls in videogames.
Can i ask. Who are worse, people who makes mistakes, apologies and tries to correct and move forward. Or peeple who holds onto it, defends it then flip flop about it while confusing you on what the issue was/still is. STFU you bud bundy reject.
I dunno Cliff, I think it would have been interesting to see how many people would have actually been unable to use it, rather than were just opposed to it.
What a hypocrite
At people telling Cliffy to shut up, its not like he stands in front of a news camera or show making comments. He like millions of other people have twitter and use it and people take his tweets and make articles out of it. If you dont like hwat he says dont read his tweets or articles made off it. Hes entitled to his opinions just like everyone else. On topic: 24hr checks was to make sure people who were on borrowed games that were digital actually owned the game on their account and not a friends. Its how they were going to monitor accounts/gamer. So ya the concept may seem silly but necessary in the system MS had setup. Nobody likes to be checked every 24hrs so it was just a lose situation on MS part.
True, but just yesterday he had a completely different tone, and a completely different message to what he said. It's kind of hard to take someone seriously when they can't even make up their own minds. We don't suffer commenter's on this site lightly that do that, why should he be an exception?
I want to say it's a symptom of BiPolar disease. However, it wouldn't be fair to those who actually suffer such disease - I know a few unfortunately. So I think it's insecurity or subtle delusion.
Anything to not say Playstation. The Playstation fanbase has F everybody mothers to these people.
