So the Ouya doesn't count, but the CD-i and Pippin and 3D0 do? That's my point. Every "box" that enters into the console space adds to the saturation, and Ouya added to the saturation.

I love me some MH and I'd prefer that the series stays the way it is. The one major difference between MH and its competitors is that MH includes more options, more simulation, more wheel-within-wheels mechanics, and more technical combat.

None of the MH "clones" (that's a bit unfair to name them such, but whatev) have MORE technical combat. All of them have LESS technical combat and MORE button-mashy/actiony combat. And MH isn't just about slaying monst...

I've been saying this for quite a while now: the 8th gen is going to be saturated, and the results are always the same: one console brand dominates by a huge margin, and the other consoles fight over the scraps. Ouya, Steambox, PS4, X1, Wii-U, and now Amazon console? Not to mention all of the external competition from smartphones and tablets.

Don't believe me? We already have two historical instances as proof.

First, you have the 5th gen. We all remem...

Update > No update

Having tolerated the incredibly annoying PS3 updates from last gen (now it's better because PS+ handles that for me) I think people will somehow survive this update if it means improving their system.

Let's just hope it's not like the X1 CoD Ghosts update that currently makes the game run at a juttery 30 frames...

It won't happen, but it might encourage Microsoft to divert attention AWAY from Xbox, which is almost just as bad. Their enterprise and web hosting/cloud options are far, far more profitable. I can see Microsoft swerving away from the X1's current gaming focus in as little as 2 years: get the "early adopters" and "core fans" who were going to buy the system anyway, and then focus your attention on integrating X1 with media and cloud services as Microsoft pushes to ...

Oh wow! Looks really good. I was planning on picking this up anyway (since I loved the PC version) but this looks incredible

Wow. Seems like some of Pachter's "investor buddies" are nervous about Sony's extreme success. First he says Sony doesn't have enough 1st party devs, then he says (multiple times over multiple days) that PS Now is a joke, it will fail, etc.

People have to realize that Pachter's public statements are NOT investment advice. That is something he keeps private. The stuff he says in public is intended to manipulate the market (which makes his own job easi...

I would like it if they returned to the more zany, brooding tone and theme of earlier games in the series like Persona 2 EP/IS. Those games still had off-the-wall moments like in P3 and P4, but they were also far more serious.

Agreed. The only "bad" hardware I can think of was the Virtual Boy and maybe the Micro GBA, but their hardware is always very solid and built with quality (and often affordability) in mind. Even when it comes to features I don't enjoy (like the Wii-U tablet or the 3DS's 3D) it's still quality.

But no, we don't need that. Nintendo should just do software. They should go 3rd party. That worked out great for SEGA, didn't it?

Hopefully this won't go oop, at least not soon. I remember FE: Awakening being hard to find for its first few months.

Quick question: isn't layaway something where you put money down, they "reserve" it for you, and then you can pick it up once you've paid it off?

If that is the case, this does not make sense. X1 is widely available. It would actually make more sense to do this for PS4, which is having trouble staying in stock.

Looks like a really great game. I loved the demo. I'll pick it up once I finish up with a few of my backlog RPGs...

Won't be the death. It'll simply hold it back. Nothing more; nothing less.

Do people still not realize that Pachter's "predictions" and "comments" are specifically designed to sway the market? Any analyst gives analysis for money and in private.

Notice how his analysis never, ever, ever paints 3rd party publishers in a negative light.

Notice how his "predictions" and "analysis" always downplays first-party companies (he rarely has a nice thing to say about Microsoft, Sony, or Nintendo'...

Reminds me of Myst combined with...Dr Seuss colors. Setting aside the fact that it's by Jonathan Blow, I'm interesting in the game on its aesthetics alone.

Does this mean Microsoft will finally, finally stop harping about Metacritic scores? Does this mean Microsoft will finally fire Aaron Greenburg (who is up to his old antics again)?

LOL yeah, the association with Ryse's story is going to *ahem* raise some eyebrows.

FWIW, I'll take more story (they're already doing that with Quantum Break). HIstorically, Microsoft has made some awesome stories in gaming but they moved away with that once they started to focus more on Kinect/Xbox Live.

But I'd actually rather see these devs branch out into the free-roaming build-your-own-world sort of games like Minecraft. Sony has Everque...

The "will catch up to PS4" statements are a bit puzzling. How will X1 catch up to PS4? By getting better dev tools? Okay...but PS4 will also be getting better dev tools. The idea that X1 will "catch up" or "narrow the gap" is completely devoid of any facts or reality.

And resolution is but one piece of the puzzle (though it is important and I'm glad X1 is supposedly improving in this respect). Texture assets, physics, particle effects, lighti...
