I take it you were talking about the Wii U? Yeah...such a bummer of a console. Great exclusives yet close to no 3rd parties. I really got what you were saying. We're lucky we have a console that's doing great on both fronts this gen. No wonder it's winning with such a huge margin. 25+mil gap in 3 years...OUCH!

Xbox group...?

they were the ones that has constantly, since the announcement, touting that the Scorpio will use both Ryzen and Vega chips from AMD and faster 12GB of RAM and so on...most were proven wrong

you meant that group, right?

never once I said that this is bad news. I even supported it but I see it as one of those things that is wrong with gaming community these days. that includes both providers and consumers

"Physical items like the media reader, ps2 hardware and usb ports..."

they removed the PS2 parts so they can sell it cheaper. native PS2 BC was not a sustainable business decision and people weren't willing to pay more to get more, was a decision they had to make. still a bummer though because those original 60GBs were the best console ever made IMO! all PS1, PS3 and PS3 greatness on a single console! another thing they real...

my point was, these kind of power weren't available during the launch of the original PS4 and Xbone and I gave the example using nVidia's offerings because those were the top of the line GPU at the time of release for both of these consoles. if we take AMD, it's gonna look more ridiculous because 1. they didn't have that kind of power back then and 2. their TDP is even worst!

In short, the PS4 at least, launched with the most power they could get out of the ...

looks just as good as BoTW

this game would have already been released if only Capcom have let Sony and Studio Japan be more involved in the project but they decided not to let Sony interfere. I guess they want to keep it as theirs and prevent Sony from locking it down it as their 3rd party exclusive IP like they did with Demon's Souls and Bloodborne.

but what good does that do for them, though? it's beyond ridiculous now. how much longer is the game going to take for development? even RE7 whi...

bought them all and love them and I keep them in my collection after I Platinum them. didn't buy NMS though. I'm too well-informed to let myself buying into games I don't have any interest in. your point is?

they are too busy delivering the games to even be bothered by this by the look of it.

Xbone owners will look for anything no matter how irrelevant to somehow show that their locked down Win10 pc is still relevant. now, it's all about BC, the power of Scorpio and this refund policy for them! that's all that's left I guess, when you have no worthwhile games to talk about!

shh...don't tell them that. refund is the future more innovative than shareplay! for them, whatever MS is doing, Sony should follow or copy!

@Knushwood Butt

"MS are focusing on the opposite."

you mean like taking away games from gamers and give them back their money?

I guess that's one way to look at it LOL

I don't really know what @XiNatsuDragonel was talking about but to make fun of the matter, maybe Phil is hoping for the xbox fanbase to play Destiny for a little longer after launch because they are going to get those DLCs a year later than those playing on the PS4.

in other words, it's like he's saying..."Please be patient and hang in there. the DLCs are yet to come" LOL

I'm far from against any consumer friendly practice but like I said, I think demos are the ultimate solutions to this and it's a sad situation we're in at the moment because back when not that many people had good connections last gen, demos were aplenty and personally, many times I've made my purchase decisions based on demos, whether I buy the game or not. But just as we entered the new generation, with a lot more people can now afford good con...

"These mid-gen systems are the REAL 8th gen systems."

Ridiculous! The Pro is a 4.2TF console and the Scorpio will be a 6TF one. GTX 780 which was release early 2013 had only 4TF with 3GB GDDR5 and 780Ti which came out around the same time of the launch of PS4 and Xbone was just over 5.5TF. Both these cards were launched at almost $700 but here you are...ignorantly stating that the Pro and Scorpio should have been lunched then and there? For $400 to $500??

"a game demo is nothing but a vertical slice of a game that is super polished and in no way details the final quality..."

But a 2 hour gameplay is? And how do you vertical cut a game like for example Telltale's games? Or LEGO games? Or even FPS games? Football games? The gameplay stays the same the whole game and demos are excellent ways to see if it's to your liking or not. Plus, it's easier for platform holder to control th...

"Kept taking features out..." like what, though? Before OtherOS, removal, the only other removal was the PS2 hardware that eliminated native BC. Other than that, they kept adding features to the PS3. Trophies, stereoscopic 3D, media streaming, Vita Remote Play...seriously dude, you only talk nonsense!

Kinect removal was a start, next is Snap app.

Seriously, why are people talking like refund is the way to go? It's a flawed system and can be abused. You know what is better? GAME DEMOS! Why the hell are devs not doing it anymore? And why aren't more gamers demand it instead of talking about refund?

many times, Sony has amazed us with their press conference. IMO the live orchestra is among the best conference I've even watched. send chills through your spines really
