PS4 Indie Dev and Neogaf user Paz (developer of Assault Android Cactus for PC/PS4/PSV) responds to Kevin Dent's claims about the PS4.
*Sits back and watches it unfold.
Better than TV.
Anything's better than tv nowadays
🍚🍚🍚 just popped the popcorn!

Arthur dents brother init
Lol "anything's better than tv nowadays"
--but but bu- it will be on the xbox one!
SMFH...Vegeta I like your line of thinking.
Lol people need to stfu already and just wait until the consoles release. It's beginning to get annoying now. It's the whole resolution debacle, people not getting reviewed versions of ps4's,then others saying how ps4 is being rushed etc. Overall the whole thing is getting tiresome.
its because they didn't get afree ps4 , they thought sony was going to give them one like the ps3 but didn't preorder one, so now they throw a hissy fight and talk bs. im sure they will knock down ps4 game reviews for this.
Seriously. These YouTube reviewers are so wrapped up within themselves to where they feel entitled to the year's most anticipated product for free. Its really pathetic. Let them knock off however many points they want, I couldn't care less for their reviews in the first place.
the ps4's video share feature will render reviews obsolete. why would i read a fanboys review when i can experience the game first hand by taking over my friends console. if i was Sony i wouldn't even sweat it. it's about time these jocks found another occupation anyway. "Oh the times they are a changing"
Can't wait to see the back of all these so-called journalists.
@bro I agree. Reviews do not matter. The only review that matter to me is my own.
I don't think that's completely it...I get the feeling that some of these youtubers seem to think that because they are small that they should have not only gotten a system to review for free but also been allowed to post a review before the Nov 12-14th press event in New york....I'm sorry I love Adam Sessler and occasionally Total Biscuit but again they are youtubers nothing about that deserves any special treatment. It's not a company's job to make sure tiny websites and Vloggers get to continue their tiny little businesses.
Yeah right! This has to be dragged out until after launch. You see, if you offer people two choices and give them the facts they are probably going to go with the better product. Or as Dent would say: How DARE you not accept a weaker product at a higher price.
Exactly. Which is why I'm going with the PS4 and not looking back. I refuse to pay more for less.
Lol what are u ps fanboys gonna do when the p4 launches and your looking around for games to play? The fustration you're gonna feel is going to be sickening. Knack is a waste of development time, money, and resources. Everyone has Ghost snd BF4. You Fanboys made your bed now lay in it. And about paying more for less, ps4 features are weak. Wet paper towel weak. Nothing revolutionary, just a bunch of cut and paste from past and current systems. Lol. P4 Nov. 15. The next generation Nov.22!!! Sony didnt want to get beat out the gate again so they rush out. Open your eyes. Patch for features they been promising since day one. Lack of quality games and content, not to mention the system looks dated when side by side with x 1. No im not talking about graphics. Xbox One is gonna change everything, and sony will be right behind them trying to tack on things that the system wasn't even built to do. All at the expense of you. You being the one who is in here lying to your fellow man, saying the p4 is the best, just cause you like it. Im not downing in one who does like it, if you do i hope you have fun. Thats what its about not 720p or 1080p. As of launch p4 will release but the next gen will not be with it.
We've also got a couple other 'insiders' responding to Dent: CBOAT's response: "thenrr is nithug here regardiHdng devkit exPeses, etc That's sbaseed rin!Real!tty. "Seisirohsly. U ar clowned 4 a rezon man" [translation: There is nothing here regarding devkit expenses, etc, that's based in reality. Seriously. You are clowned for a reason, man.] http://www.neogaf.com/forum... And FamousMortimer's responses: Short version: "You are on fucking drugs. I mean that literally. There's no way you made this post sober." http://www.neogaf.com/forum... Long version: http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
Thanks for the translation because I was lost just trying to read that
That's just how CBoat write. It's to prevent anyone from exposing him. He's a famous insider posting leaks/breaking news in NeoGAF.
If CBOAT doesn't want search engines finding the crap he posts, maybe he shouldn't post on the biggest gaming forum on the net.
CBOAT sounds like a big baby. He talks like a baby. He writes like a baby. Honestly, his 'coded' way of writing is about the level of a ten year old girl texting her friends about her latest Justin Bieber rumour. Apparently he codes his text so as not to identify himself, but the translation of his baby-speech doesn't identify him anyway. So what the heck is that all for?
CBOAT doesn't speak english as its not his native tongue or language, so thats why there is a need for a translation.
That is only one of the reason. It is also to prevent Stylometric analysis and finding out who s/he really is. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... There's a reason that s/he is still around for a decade after dropping truthfacts that someone like MS doesn't want you to find out.
@ theobserver let me repeat myself "Apparently he codes his text so as not to identify himself, but the translation of his baby-speech doesn't identify him anyway." so that debunks the stylometric analysis. In fact, other users on neogaf translate his text into plain English, which is used for all the rumours, which are taken at face value, which are assumed to be true because it's Neogaf. So. his posts which are taken as truth as per the neogaf translation would identify him anyway. Please clear this up for me. He posts his texts in code so he won't be identified. Then the neogaf community deciphers his post to spread truth about the next gen , but only so much as not to identify the Cboat. Then we are all expected to accept this coded, then deciphered (but still obfuscated so as not to identify cboat) post as reliable truth??? come again? Your post makes little sense and I am hoping you can clarify? Please tell me how this can possibly make sense?
Bird, Did you click on the link? That would have explained it for you. It's not coded to hide facts that could reveal his identity. It's coded to hide his true writing style, which could be compared to writings known to have been done by his true identity to figure out that he is CBOAT.
I thought NeoGaf posts were not allowed to be approved on this site?
Anything PS4/Xbone related - especially if it's some type of head-to-head topic is auto-approved regardless of source.
I thought they weren't either. It is a forum post As it has been approved we might as well talk about it: Right who is Kevin Dent again? Nice to see other people questioning what he wrote (like what ShwankyShpanky point out even though we do not know who the butt source is but he has been fairly reliable)
posts directly from a developer or publisher are allowed regardless if it's on a forum, twitter, facebook, youtube or reddit.
That's interesting, Cgoodno. Did not know that. Where in the TOU does it say that?
so if it a known dev it's allowed .. good to know
if you take couple of minutes to read the rules you would know that forum posts from a game developer are allowed. ---Sourcing: "You can also link to forum posts if the post is made by an industry professional." --- http://n4g.com/site/newsgui...
Thank you, wishingW3L That's EXCELLENT news for all of us! As long as you have a BLOG or FORUM POST and you derive income from it (even if it's a net loss), you can post it as news on N4G.com! Fabulous! let me start a blog and submit as news ASAP. I can feel those advertising $ coming now! This is awesome! It's never been this easy to legitimately post spam news or otherwise legitimately make money from ignorant users on N4g. You heard it here first, people! get those blogs going! All you need is one paying advertiser to get started, as per n4g TOU. This is how stories work on here, people. As long as you have advertising revenue, you can post whatever you like! It's Soylent Green! http://www.youtube.com/watc... I am excited and angry and saddened and flummoxed all at once.
It's ridiculous , Neogaf have the primer source of intel( beyond the rumors) about many things game related .. to the point that so called big serious site have been shameless copypasting it (especially famitsu translations at some point) , but now that their flow of info and rumors isnt currently in Microsoft's favor ... it's all "its neogaf it's crap" " they are pro sony" ?
i dont know kevin dent but from what i've heard from a lot of people, this guy is an idiot. Apparently there is a video where he was invited by the destructoid staff and he was doing some weird and not really funny and awkward sexual joke also apparantly he say a lot of bs on his twitter account.
There are links in the GAF thread to some of Dent's other tweets. "Unprofessional" would be one way to describe them. (Misogynistic asshattery would be another)
Misogynistic asshattery. If you have that trademarked, you have got to let me use it some time.
The word Asshattery is not used nowhere near enough in everyday conversation.
let the games begin
My goodness this CBoat does realize he is not anonymous...all it takes is a simple subpoena to get his identity. The cryptic stuff just makes me laugh...just post what you know..that is if you know anything...you have not been too correct since E3 dude...as for the guys complaining about not getting free systems to review the games...I say stand in line like the rest of us paupers.
agreed. This CBOAT has become like a religious deity on Neogaf. Anyone who questions his supreme authority is ridiculed, despite the fact his statements are vague enough to be considered common sense a lot of the time. Let's also not forget that even a broken clock is right twice a day, so he is bound to get some stuff right just by pure chance. So much for predictive accuracy.. The cryptic stuff is so laughable and unnecessary. He sounds like such a try-hard.
Something about a person that works in some capacity for MS, and then turns around and spreads the sh!t that he does, feels very scummy to me....
You can't just issue out subpoena's like an invite to a party. If it really were "that easy" then anytime there was a leak a subpoena would be issued so said source leak would be fired/reprimanded. But that's not how it works. And CBOAT has been right about so many things that when he is somewhat incorrect it doesn't affect his reputation. Besides, many of his #truthfacts are on topics that are entirely fluid. He could make a post today saying inFamous: Second Son is running at 5 FPS, but if it releases at 60 FPS that doesn't mean he was wrong - it meant the developers improved the game.
Um how exactly would you go about subpoenaing someone on the internet? Do you think his real name is Cboat so they just mail it to him.....Or does someone just jump into a chat again on the INTERNET to deliver a subpoena?
Its a website, do you think you are anonymous here? You are not, in fact if the website operator is given a subpoena, you can bet your rear that will indeed give up said information. Its rather simple really. This site records you too.
Who is Kevin Dent? I have never heard of him.
you dont miss anything.
I have no idea who Kevin Dent is either but still, the drama that is being created around this next-gen console launch is hilarious.
someone hurt his feelings and get him to retire from the internet again .. third time is the charm
I mean c'mon IGN even has to pay for their consoles...wtf are they thinking.
poor, poor fellow if its any constellation I have to buy mine too
You know I really feel bad about this but I think that's "consolation" unless you are using a metaphor about a star alignment that should equal what you are trying to convey.
nope you are right
unknown sony developer making a game called assault android ,...yes lets listen to that guy, people care.
He's an indie developer making games for Sony platforms. Not the same thing. Who needs the truth, though, right?
@ fanta: thanks for proving my point below with this asinine comment. edit: sorry hicken :(
And here we see more xbox fanboy hypocrisy... Dent says something supporting xbone: "actual proof from actual dev" ... a *dev* working on a sony title posts a counter argument to Dent's obviously biased comments: "not a valid source of information." Bravo *slow clap*
can you actually read? kevin dent supports both sony and xbox , hes trying to debunk a bunch of rumors bc everyone on here flies off the handle to anything regarding negative press on anything having to do with xbox.
yes, i can read, and Dent outright said he's biased towards MS. so he's not so much debunking rumours (nor was he saying anything overly relevant) as much as he was towing MS's company line. and thanks again for eloquently proving my point in your comment above mine that xbox fanboys think random pro-MS shill = proof, and actual dev working on sony games = anonymous, invalid source.
ok so im right you cant read. thanks.
There seems to be enough hypocrisy to go around on all sides these days. I'm sick of N4G allowing Neogaf "insiders" to post these unsubstantiated rumors over and over. I don't know who this Kevin Dent is but at least he is not hiding like this CBOAT.
What's hypocrite is that no one had issues with neogaf news and even rumours , before the ps4/xb1 controversities . Everyone was fairly happy ripping the sites' news , famitsu translations , initial sales figures , devs' post on gaf etc . And now suddenly they are worthless ? So far : Polygon IGN Videogamer.com and a whole bunch of others Seriously, what is it with games websites, why can't they do their own research or at the very least check their sources? Non of the websites have even cited Neogaf as being the place that the news has come from either. Games Journalism = Copy + paste . Hell they once had a user post a hoax to check it out , only to find out Polygon of course copied it without checking . PS : half the post is copypasted from Gaf too :p , as all was eloquently said
Can anyone explain to me what is even going on in this article? I've been trying to read up and figure out what's going on, but I'm just not connecting the dots.. :/
