My point is that when you bought a PS3 even at $600 you could objectively point to something that added value, that was not present on the other side. Some people, like you, may subjective decide that this added value IS NOT enough to justify the extra $200 added to the price tag. Some other people, like me, may subjectively decide that this added value IS enough to justify the extra $200 added to the price tag. But no one could objectively disagree with the fact that there was something t... #1.1.7

They treat small developers like s**t??? No kidding, They treat people who buy their consoles like s**t.

Didn't they just attempt to take the very concept of video game ownership away from all of their consumers?

Didn't they just attempt to completely destroy the second-hand market for video games?

Didn't they just attempt to set in motion a chain of events that would result in them being the only place to buy video games on thei... #14

I'm just picking the game up because my cousin swears by Battlefield since Bad Company 2. I'm one the newbies you are talking about that is still learning the maps and getting the hang of things.

How exactly do you "round 'em up and organize"? Do you literally draw up a plan and hand-out assignments? Do you create a party and talk for 30 minutes before you fight? Do you need a website? What exactly do you do?

It is hard to find a... #11.1

When the PS3 launched the comparison was not launch titles vs. launch titles. The comparison was PS3 launch titles vs. 360 2nd year titles. So, that wasn't a fair comparison. Still, with the PS3 vs. the Xbox 360 you got something objectively extra for your other $200. You got better hardware, you got free online multiplay, you got blu-ray playback. #1.1.5

The system has only been out for a month, there are not enough big budget games to give any of them away.

Resogun and Contrast are pretty good though. #1.1.2

They would not have been "out of the second hand gaming business" because there would have been no second hand gaming business for them to be out of. If Microsoft had succeeded in their DRM policies they would have killed the second-hand video game market completely. That's why they had to be stopped, that's why the backlash was so bad. That's why when Sony announced that they were not going to implement DRM Microsoft had to abort their DRM plans. #2.2

Actually $59 dollars is actually $65 in the US for disc-based games after you consider the most states add 5% to 10% sales tax.

Still, it is just stupid to give away for nothing value that can be resold if you don't have to.

I bought one downloaded game, BF4 (PS4), because Sony gave $10 of PSN store cash. Once I considered the PSN cash and the sales taxes, it was $50US to download vs. $66US to buy the disc in the store...$16 cheaper to download. I fig... #3.2.2

No you don't....support the Xbox because you think it is a great piece of kit, I mean. Both of the last two Xboxes (Bone and 360) have been demonstrably worse pieces of kit than their competition. In the case of the Xbone it's worse kit at a higher price. So, unless you are one of those guys who think that all new kit is good kit, supporting the Xbox because you think it's good kit is not going to be the case.

You may support them because you support all game c... #2.2.6

I don't remember Metal Gear being on Nintendo. I know it was on the MSX, but I don't remember it being on Nintendo? #2.2.2

Then why both callng it Mass Effect 4. If it has no mention of Shepard or of anybody releated to him the they may as well call it something different. #1.1.1

What FPS on PS3 looked better than Halo 4???? Really???

Killzone 2, which released like 3 or 4 years before Halo 4.

Mind you, I liked Halo 4, but it doesn't touch the best PS3 games as far as graphics is concerned. #1.2.4

It did lead all other software sales though. It looks like Japan just had a bad week of sales overall. #24

I understand that this is one writer's opinion.

The only issue that I had was his saying that TitanFall would definitely be a "Must Buy" title. It may be, but it may not be. Before we can know that for certain we will have to see more info, video, previews, reviews, etc. #10

@Yi-Long

If most gamers come home and plug our system into a docking station attached to our television set, then consoles will be ahead of mobile gaming.

The whole point of mobile gaming is that we can do it when we are not at home. Once we actually decide to game at home, consoles will always have an advantage. it is just a question of space. No matter how powerful and small we can make chips, we will always be able to put more of them into a square-foot... #1.1.17

Actually the Xbox 360 had a lower entry price point and a year head start. It's really that simple. Now they have neither.

They have a higher priced machine with lower specs and backed by a smaller first-party game-making operation. The only thing that they have going for them is hope that brand loyalty will keep the Xbox live faithful on the Xbox One platform.

I wouldn't hold my breath. Anybody who thinks that the majority of people are going... #1.3.1

Yeah but the internet is A LOT cheaper than a cable subscription. Remember, the cable companies don't own the lines, the local municipalities do. They lease those lines to whomever makes the best deal, which is normally the cable company. But if one company doesn't offer the internet, another company will. #12.1.2
