"Games are good"


Exactly! This guy gets it... For instance, I really liked the Road Not Taken from PS+ last month, but I would have NEVER played it if not for the PS+ freebie. #18.1

I dunno man, I've always wanted to play PS All-Stars, but never bothered. I saw it for like 10 dollars once, but wasn't sure if I would like it enough to justify paying for it. Getting it free is my perfect chance to finally try a game I've had my doubts on but always wanted to give a try! Velocity 2x looks flipping *phenomenal* as well (the original was brilliant). #1.5

@XBLSkull, remote play doesn't suck, it depends on the game. I've been playing tons of Diablo 3 remote play. I re-arranged the buttons so my R2 is now the armor ability and the secondary attack is O (so I basically switched O and R2 from the default), because I almost never have to use the armor button and I use the secondary attack button all the time. After making that change, playing Diablo 3 on the Vita controls very smoothly. #1.1.7

"The Xbox One and PS4 have been out on the market for around nine and ten months, respectively"

Weird thing to start an article with... They have been out for a difference of one week! The XBO was out one week later than PS4 in NA, but it was out one week before the PS4 in EU. So... They've essentially been out the same amount of times, for all intents and purposes, not sure why a writer would even bother to try and describe them as having been out for differe... #1.6

They aren't saying it's objectively easier to develop Xbox One vs PS4. They are saying it's simpler for them, because of their experience. This is a developer that has never worked with a PlayStation console before, but they have worked on Microsoft machines for their entire existence. The APIs are familiar to them for Xbox One, while they are new and alien to them on PS4. That doesn't mean the PS4 is tougher, it means it's less familiar for them, so their is a learnin... #1.9.1
Thanks @Dee_91. What a pathetic "article". Really, it's a blog, at best. It's just some guy spouting off as much negativity about Sony as he can in 3 paragraphs while keeping it focused on apparently the one game upcoming that he seems to think has no positive gameplay aspects. I just don't understand all the hate for the gameplay in this title. It looks really awesome, to me. I *LIKE* cinematic games. Some of my favorite parts of Uncharted 2 (and the media in gen... #1.1.11
They just create some comic relief characters: two Robins (the birds) each named William, and they parrot each other and berate each other for comic effect while giving you useful information. William and William: the robin Williams. OK, ok, so it's super corny. But, then you remember that Nintendo put that weird Tingle guy in Zelda before and anything can happen! Also, at least it's somewhat subtle too because you have to actually notice it, it's not in your face. #1.3
Watching this person play the game is infuriating haha. They are awful at it! I just want to rip the controller from him and show him how it's done. #1.6
Sony didn't even announce Silent Hills. They announced a "now available" interactive teaser, which in turn announced the game, and nothing about exclusivity was ever said.

Hellblade was also not announced as exclusive. They did announce a bunch of games at the beginning of their conference, and at the end of that segment (during which they showed Hellblade) "The Tomorrow Children and Rime are full-exclusive, PlayStation Owned IPs, and all the rest of what... #6.6

Just curious, what do you mean by "a vocal minority?" If you mean "Playstation & PC fan bases"... Wouldn't that be a majority? Those audiences are bigger than the Xbox fanbase. #6.3.1

"Crystal has been investing in that game and Square has as well, in Tomb Raider as a franchise, and wanting to put it at the highest level, with the big triple-A franchises out there, but that's expensive."

Here's what I'm getting out of Spencer's long-winded explanation (don't take that wrong, I'm glad he gave so much about how this happened): Tomb Raider (reboot) was extremely expensive to produce to get it to "AAA caliber". The... #1.5

Finally got around to playing some Fez this weekend, after wanting to try it for years. It's... hmm... I dunno.

First, I found Fish (in the documentary Indie Game: The Movie) to be a very sympathetic guy with some demons and a lot of pressure surrounding what he's trying to do. So I tend to give him a bit of a free pass. The public spotlight isn't always for everyone, I know that. I don't think it's for him, that's for sure.

A funny comment considering the PS4 has more games available than the Xbox One.

Metacritic has rated 96 games for PS4, and only 60 for Xbox One. That is exactly 60% more games on PS4 (96-60 = 36 more games on PS4, 36/60 = 60%)

There are also 49 games rated as "favorable" on PS4, versus 24 on Xbox One, which is more than DOUBLE.

34 of the favorable titles on PS4 are rated 80+, versus 13 for Xbox One. That's 162% more. #5.3.1

@MUGEN81: Not to be a jerk about it, but I mean... why NOT get a PS4, when you know as well as I do that the majority of games any of us is going to play in a generation are going to be multiplatform, that's how it always is, and the PS4 has been shown to be objectively, quantifiably stronger than the Xbox One. Multiplatform games will always either run faster, or smoother, or at a higher resolution, or have more intricate lighting, motion blur and special effects, or better anti-aliasin... #14.6

Who would? It makes no sense to choose a console due to timed exclusivity, if you're already aware that it's timed.

OK, ok, maybe I would *for the right game*.

I'm one of those crazy Demon's / Dark Souls obsessed people (my favorite games of last gen, easily, and right up there with Symphony of the Night in my top 5 all-time games), and if Bloodborne was coming to Xbox One, even if it was a known timed exclusive, I'd probably buy an Xone... #1.17

@Sly-Lupin: Yes, but not everyone played it on PS3, or maybe even has a PS3 to play it on. I played my first Disgaea game on the PSP. The first one, on PSP... never played it on PS2. I just missed it on PS2 somehow and when I first got my PSP I was looking for something to play. In a way, I think the Disgaea games are better suited for hand-held play. I can do all that grinding and stuff while I sit on the train on my way to work (well, on my way to school back when I played the first on... #1.3.2

If just a couple hundred thousand out of the 3 million Dark Souls players decides "I wasn't planning to get a PS4 before, but now I gotta get one because I need to play Bloodborne" ... guess what, that means it was a system seller! It doesn't need to sell 10 million systems to be considered a system seller. If any significant amount of people buy the system primarily because of the game, people who were either on the fence or weren't planning to get the system at all b... #15.3

Don't care if this game is exclusive, timed exclusive, or available everywhere, I think it just looks like a cool game, and it looks like a return to the kinds of things they were doing with Heavenly Sword, a criminally under-rated game and one of the best games of the PS3's early life. Very excited for this game! #1.3

Like I said elsewhere, this is perfectly fine. Microsoft gets Tomb Raider exclusively at launch to compete against Uncharted 4, Square-Enix doesn't have to fend off Uncharted 4 when they try to sell this game to PS4 gamers, and eventually PS4 gamers will buy Tomb Raider when they're all finished with Uncharted 4. Works out for well for all parties involved. Everyone and their mother could guess that if Tomb Raider came out at the same time as Uncharted 4, on PS4, it wouldn't se... #1.4

@DualWielding: Really, six new exclusives + a bunch of timed exclusives, and some really awesome features announced for firmware 2.0, while PlayStation 4 still gets Uncharted 4 exclusively at the same time that Xbox gets Tomb Raider... you think Tomb Raider alone trumps all of that? Not to me. #1.1.26
