Digital future will be bad for console gamers

266d 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...

Gaming in Japan: What does the PS4 release date mean?

689d ago ... Sony recently announced at a press event that the PS4 would release during February of 2014 in Japan, 3 months after the Western market release in November 2013. The represents a big shift from every other Sony console release, all of which have launched either before or simultaneously to Western markets. Yet the strategy is symptomatic of a broader trend in the Japanese gaming market that...

The most annoying developments this gen

725d ago ... 1080p, or lack thereof When the 360 and PS3 were announced, much fanfare was made of their ability to do ‘Full HD’ gaming. Both supported 1080p, both would, at some stage we were told, have 1080p games. What did we get? A handful of showcases (thank Polyphony for GT5!) and PS2 HD re-releases. Many games were upscaled to 1080p, but the lions share were 720p native, or even less. All-in-all,...

PS4 Reveal an Unbridled Success

889d ago ... Sony made a brave and bold move with their PS4 reveal yesterday, and as predicted, it set the gaming community and internet ablaze with both praise and scorn in equal measure. They gave specs without detail, showed promise of unbelievable social and cloud gaming features, had games galore and revealed a controller without a console. Despite the doubters, despite the people calling it 'a wedding...

PS4 vs. GTAV

909d ago ... With the confirmation of Grand Theft Auto V's September release date, and tease of the PS4 announcement coming only a day apart, I was left wondering what the imminent arrival of the 'next generation' meant for one of gaming's biggest franchises. Rumours currently on Eurogamer point to a US and Japan PS4 release in time for Christmas, with Europe to follow soon after (perhaps like the Vita d...

Most Overrated Game of 2012...

923d ago ... Goes to Far Cry 3. Yes, Far Cry 3 was a good game. Fans of the game, please don't feel the need to leap to its defence and tell me why you thought it was better than everything else, and how revolutionary it was. I enjoyed Far Cry 3, which I why I completed it (finally) recently. However, as much as I enjoyed Far Cry 3, I couldn't help but feel much of the game's much touted strengths were a...

Sony and used games

937d ago ... The gaming community has recently been put into a tailspin about the news emanating from Neogaf that Sony recently filed a patent protecting NFC based technology used to manage content on a physical disc. With people hypothesising that this is Sony's push to quash the used game market, the response has been overwhelmingly negative, despite being based on pure speculation as to the use of the pa...

PS Vita & Proprietary Memory: Why Sony did it

1337d ago ... Since it was announced, I've been waiting with baited breath for the Playstation Vita. So I've been interested to see the reactions of gamers around the web to information as it comes out, particularly related to the issue of the Vita's proprietary memory format. For those of you who don't know, the Vita has no onboard flash storage. Instead, Sony has opted to go with a Vita specific proprie...

MW3 Multiplayer on PS3. Another CoD, more issues remain unfixed

1354d ago ... So after having the game now for about 5 days, and having played quite a few hours of multiplayer, I think I'm in a position to provide some multiplayer impressions for those of you still on the fence about this game (if there are any of you left). My biggest impression coming out of MW3, is not how similar it is to MW2, but how it doesn't work properly. Yes, many of those issues that mad...

Betas: never join them, never will

1474d ago ... With the close of the Uncharted 3 beta last week, Sony released some impressive statistics on the participants over at the Playstation Blog (http://blog.us.playstation.com/2011/07/15/uncharted-3-multiplayer-beta-concludes-is-largest-ps3-beta-ever/). Over 362 collective years of playtime logged by some 1.53 million unique players. For an Uncharted fan like myself all this is good news- even...

PC Gaming Decline: The Unspoken Enemy

1481d ago ... We've seen various news articles, editorials and blog posts throughout the HD generation of consoles citing the demise of PC gaming as a direct consequence of the efforts of Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft. We all know the reasons why this appears to be the case. Consoles offer a longer term, cheaper initial hardware investment and the bulk of the industry now caters towards making games for PS...

Crysis 2 single player impressions: PS3

1585d ago ... Graphical multiplat wunderkind Crysis 2 has been out barely a week and I've managed to play it a bit since getting hands on my PS3 copy on Sunday. Seeing as it's one of the biggest releases of the year so far, and definitely the biggest multiplatform release in this gamer's humble opinion since Red Dead: Redemption, I thought I'd offer my impressions on the games' campaign mode so far, includin...

The worst development this gen is...

1588d ago ... Ah, the HD gaming generation. It's ushered in many great developments, and standardised some great features for console gaming. From simple, underrated pleasures like wireless controllers that can also be used for switching your console on and off, to bigger developments like making online multiplayer a standard console experience- there's a lot to like about what's happened this gen. There'...

PS Move and Kinect: Time for RTS on HD consoles

1683d ago ... I'll come out straight away and say I'm the biggest skeptic of the merits of motion control out there. I bought a Wii well before I owned either a PS3 or 360, and, aside from the glory that was Super Mario Galaxy, I found it horrible. It was flooded with boring casual game after boring casual game, and the hardcore titles it did offer were just tiresome. Controlling games by pointing, shakin...

Rant: Black Ops and the failure of gaming 'media'

1692d ago ... If you read my review of Black Ops for PS3, you'll note I was none too happy about it. For convenience sake, I've linked it here: http://n4g.com/channel/call-of-duty-black-ops_ps3/userreview/514908 It's now been over a month since Black Ops has been out. I've played it intermittently, always drawn back by the promise of having fun in the latest COD outing, and every time I've gone back, I'...

Top picks for 2011: most anticipated titles?

1695d ago ... 2010 was a great year for console gaming. A extremely solid lineup of multi-platform titles was complemented by strong exclusive titles for both PS3 and Xbox marking 2010 as the most solid year for quality titles on record. So as the year winds down, time to look forward to 2011's most anticipated titles, and here's my most wanted list: Rage Post-Apocolyptia from the iD Software- the...

Do review scores determine which games are good, and which are not?

1704d ago ... As an avid gamer, I'm also an avid reader of gaming media. I regularly check N4G for material to satisfy my insatiable hunger for gaming media. I also regularly visit sites like IGN, Gamespot, Kotaku and more. This lends itself to being a game review junkie. I love reading game reviews and finding out which games are worth my money, and which games aren't. I regularly base purchasing decisio...
