CRank: 5Score: 0

A smaller nm processor is going to help the Xbox one with a better battery life? There's nothing quite like an article where you get the impression it has been copied and pasted together from other sources without a read through for context.

WiiU was actually a pretty impressive piece of hardware but

- it was overpriced
- it's name confused people
- had too many bits and pieces and add ons (amibo only worsens this)
- there has never really been any game which has demonstrated why it is designed like that. Without a real reason for why you need a screen in the controller, it became a gimmick.
- over reliance on new versions of old ip, I love Marino kart as much as the next perso...

Blah blah there aren't enough first party games...

And everyone cares so much when the top 5 selling games will be fifa, Madden, Battlefront, COD and Assassins Creed.

Maybe Sony has stumbled upon a better way of spreading its titles. Around Xmas, what you want are a few interesting first party games but not the big hitters, something you can bundle with the console but knowing fully that COD, Battlefront, FIFA, Madden, Assasins Creed etc are what most will be playing. Then you spread your first party stuff over q1&q2 so anyone buying a console has something great to look forward too.

Most buyers aren't hardcore gamers, they will b...

You can buy a 2tb 2.5 HDD for about £60, unless you have a spare 4tb or 8tb 3.5 hdd lying around, I can't work out who this drive is for. But then again, an internal SATA hard drive will always be a better bet than a usb one with its slow transfer speeds and I guess it is good to have the option if you really need the capacity.

I'd definitely be interested if they worked out a way to have 2 2tb 2.5 hard drives in a a RAID config though, or one hard drive and a sm...

Maybe what is really holding back gaming is a narrow minded but very vocal minority who prize graphical fidelity and hardware fetishism over actual gameplay. Great games are being released all the time on consoles and PCs, neither is right or wrong, that the 3DS is the best selling gaming hardware in the world should really start to make some realise that gaming is more than showing off your rig on gaf!

PS, I didn't read the article, I'm not giving you the traffic and...

Looks pretty but tbh I think in pretty bored of track racers. Most driving fun I've had in the last few years have been the point to point time trials in driveclub and the weird challenges in forza like racing a train.

Does look very pretty though.

From just reading the title of the article

Hey, did you spend £400 on just one of the new generation of console. Are you upset for no known reason upset because there were great games to play which could also be played by people who spent £400 on the other new gem console. Well we have the answer, spend another £250.

Forbes - what a bunch of eejits.

I used to play the airplane mission from the end of COD4 over and over, we even used to do pass the controller sessions when I was at uni, pure 3 minutes of gaming heaven.

Awful website, writer who apparently cannot write properly (who proof read the title?) and an idiotic concept.

Flop would be commercially unsuccessful to a degree that it is loss making, none of these games will be that. What this seems to be is an individual pointing out 5 games they don't like the look of or games where the media hype may not be met by the final game (though because there are so many hack bloggers out there, every game can be seen as overhyped so it mea...

Exactly, it's almost the British tabloid approach of build them up so you can knock them down and I feel goes hand in hand with the annoying trend of the angry game journo which has seeped into other media (movie sins I'm looking at you) that the constructive and well researched opinions which distinguished good journalism have been replaced by faux anger, shouting loud and lots of swearing.

Perhaps the cure is to either stop gushing over announcement trailers or enco...

when I played tlou on ps4 I thought it looked no different to the PS3 version but when I went back, it was a huge improvement but the original was very good at delivering a great environment which my mind filled in. UC4 is a huge upgrade graphically but in a way looks like how you remember the other games rather than how they were.

Looks amazing though, surprised how many tlou mechanics have been borrowed but love that they seem to have tried to open the environment and give ...

That is without a doubt one of the stupidest things I have ever had the misfortune of reading.

The reason we need slims of consoles which are less than 12 months old are to install ssds which you can do in ps4 already, to make it more portable (er vita and pstv) and to give fanboys something new to argue about!

Of course my favourite is the idea you could whack extra gpu shaders and ddr5 into the xbox and it would catch up with ps4 performance wise, somewha...

Love the vita, would really love to be able to put I a 128 or 256 gb card to hold all my games but it's not a big deal.

Part of me wonders if the reason sony use proprietary cards is to ensure consistency of performance, the variations between a.class 5 and 10 sd card are huge and would significantly impact loading times etc.

I still haven't played it but it's downloaded and ready to go. Maybe I'll change my mind when I've played it but to say this is the best thing to happen for a log time seems hyperbole though.

My one thing to add to the conversation however is that I hope this is something we will see more games announced like, especially ubisoft should take note, no more pre rendered videos or pre scripted play throughs 3 years in advance of the game being released, either kee...

Hmm articles title proposes an idiotic hypothetical question, doesn't address this in the articles body and instead rehashes press releases and twitter comments to say what every other article has said (essentially we ain't sure if it is lifetime exclusive or not and how much money this deal cost).

Pointless click bait but I clicked the link so I guess it's successful click bait

Some are never happy. Maybe given that Japan is the only real region the vita is selling well will mean they will make a big deal of it at TGS.

Splinter Cell conviction is the analogy I can best relay, a previously multi platform game which was made exclusive and has never recovered from splitting it's relatively small user base.

I enjoyed tomb raider, and I'd probably have bought it on ps4 but it's not essential enough for me to be willing to buy a new console to play.

In 5 years, I have a feeling that the tv makers will have moved to full 8k so that should be the thing to aim for.

What is an indie game anymore. People talk like these games are all like pixel junk or something, look at Outlast or the upcoming no mans sky to see indies does not mean charming puzzler or scrolling beatem up. Indie is to me just the name we give to games which release on digital only and are on the whole not published by one of the big publishing houses, why wouldn't you spend £20 on one if those games and get 15 hours play from it.
