I've been around a few corporate restructures and everyone who gets fired always claims they left on their own terms to save face. Nobody likes to admit to being fired. #7
Breaking news: golf game says it's easy to develop. Gaming world unmoved. #6
I half agree with you, but we would have more realistic expectations of what good graphics are if they showed final products to build hype instead of unrealistic target renders.

I remember only months before PS4/Xbone were released there were articles in the dozens claiming that the current gen was good enough and we didn't need next gen - but then we got reveal after reveal showing how much better graphics would be.

The industry sets the expectations of... #5.1
Good review, generally agreed with how you felt about it also. I actually picked it up as a launch title on PS4 and didn't get past level 14 before I was thoroughly bored - I've already unloaded it on eBay.

CoD just doesn't do it for me anymore - still running the same engine, still giving us the same game, the differences between the titles aren't even skin deep anymore, they're shallower! #4
That shouldn't be the standard though. We shouldn't expect that what they show us is nothing like the product we'll actually get. It's expectation management - they set our expectations high by showing a great reveal, you can't now turn around and say its our fault for believing it. If this whole reveal v current build is accurate then Ubi just plan mislead their fan base.

Don't over promise and under deliver is key part of any business relationship. #7.2
hahahahahaha this has to be fake right? #93
This article is just as bad, I still don't know the context of what was said, what polygon meant it to say and what he actually said. #23
Hopefully their not spying on Skype too. #2
All the cloud hype was BS. I remember talk that it would mean more processing and better graphics for XB1. Now we know it just meant some dedicated multiplayer servers.

There are more Wii U games running at 1080p 60FPS and Xbone right now. #22
I'm in the same boat - PS4 and Wii U are what I've gone with this gen. #1.1.1
Just an FYI this article is somewhat incorrect - the numbers they're referring to are NPD, which is North American retail- doesn't account for Europe/Oceania and Asia and elsewhere. #26
I'm buying it - it's not like I'm a penny pinching high school or uni student anymore. Professional career hooray!

If only I had as much time to game as I did when I was a uni student though :(..... #19
I preordered a PS4 in Australia in Feb 2013 after the announcement - I can tell you all, if you didn't pre-order, you won't get a PS4 until March/April. All the retailers are STILL taking pre-orders on shipments that are yet to arrive. Need proof? The two biggest video game retailers here are JB Hi Fi and EB Games:

Makes me want a gaming rig to play skyrim again while it looks like that- fucking awesome! #8
I think the point is that's one game - think of all the good games that get released that totally flop - there's heaps. Remember how Tomb Raider sold over 3 million copies last year on 360 and PS3 and it still made a loss for Square Enix, because they needed it to sell over 5 million to be profitable? In a world where a game has to sell over 5 million copies just to start turning a profit, then there's something that needs to be done. it's unsustainable for the industry.
I think Sony has gone a way to helping the situation by allowing self-publishing and supporting independent studios - there's some great looking titles coming to PS4.

I agree though - 4-5 major studios/publishers can't support the whole industry. If we want new IP's and variety - something online communities scream for but the average gamer seems to vote with their wallet against - then we need more studios and publishers taking risks. They won't if it's... #15
He completely missed the point - it's more like virtual console. #24
Gran Turismo Prologue anyone? People paid for a demo, and it sold bucketloads.

Ground Zeroes is starting to just sound like pure fanservice, nothing more. I don't really care, I'll still get it... and take my time - maybe I can stretch it to 4! lol #1.1.15
Isn't it a 'prologue'? I don't really care- if it's cheap enough it'll be a digital download for me. It's like a starter to the main course. #16
He's being saying this for years. Guns of the Patriots was supposed to be the last game in the series...

Then we had Peace Walker (which was brilliant) now this. #17
