Likely, Sony and EA were already in talks regarding Titanfall right after the botched X1 reveal. Respawn themselves said "yeah, it'll likely go multiplat". The only thing that changed was - closer to launch - they started getting hush-hush about multiplat and started saying "no, it won't come to PS4", likely because they didn't want to risk people skipping the initial launch with the reason: "hey, if it's coming to PS4, I'll just wait".
This game looks like a ton of fun. This, plus OlliOlli, is totally scratching my skill-based platforming itch. Oh man, and I wanted to replay Guacamelee, too. Lotta fun stuff on Vita this year.
They listened to developers. They listened to gamers. They listened to indies, as well. But best of all, they didn't use the console as a trojan horse for their non-gaming goals. I mean, PS4 has plenty of media features (as a carry-over from last gen) but it feels very much like the PS1 in the sense that there is a razor-sharp focus on gaming.
Considering that Microsoft has been talking non-stop (in an effort to drown out their negative PR from last year) and stuffing the channels (youtube, twitter, etc) with their PR, yeah, I think it would be nice if they'd shut up a bit, especially since all this talk is exactly that: talk. Microsoft has a track record - not just with the Xbox brand but for the decades they've been in business - of talking big with their PR and then underdelivering on the actual product. Not every instan...
Next-gen kids are being raised on Wii, smartphone minigames, and Minecraft. Not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing.
What else would he say? "The new CEO hates Xbox and so you probably shouldn't buy X1"? If he supports it, then let's see it. I'd love a return to the Xbox/early 360 era for the brand, but Microsoft needs to...you know...actually prove it.
Not too bothered by this, since I play this game for its SP only. As long as the framerate is good and the the sprites are crisp, I'm not gonna complain. Out of curiosity, have any of the other fighting games on Vita been cross-play? MK, MvC3, Gods Among Us weren't cross-play, were they?
A lot of people are trying to reduce this down to an "arguement". It wouldn't be an argument if PS4 was also struggling to meet 1080p/60fps. But it isn't. That's why people are making the comparisons, because the more expensive console has significantly-downgraded games compared to the less-expensive competition.
Xbox Too™ This article is about Sony, friend.
I'm very curious about how - in particular - the streaming works. Is it a straight stream, or does it cache some of the data on the remote device (like your PS3, or your Vita, or whatever) to allow for better performance? The latter option would be vastly superior, but it might also cause issues like this (where it takes several minutes to load, depending on your 'net speed).
A great example would be adding a fully-fledged Pokemon app that syncs with your Nintendo account and shows what Pokemon you have or haven't caught, their stats, what your friends have, etc. I've used the Minecraft, Terraria, and Starbound wikis extensively. They could do something similar with their own games via an app.
If true, ugh. Didn't Microsoft explicitly announce last year that X1 would NOT be region-locked, including digital content? Let's wait to hear a comment from Microsoft themselves (it may be an isolated incident) but this is just greasy if they changed their tune without notifying people. And yet, people were so quick to say "But Microsoft REVERSED their DRM policy! Everything is great now!"
Only the truly devoted may play next-gen. Your faith is weak.
Glad you're enjoying your new console! I'm jealous, as the only 8th gen systems I currently own are 3DS and Vita, and I'll probably end up getting a Wii-U before I get a PS4. Microsoft kinda lost me mid-2008 when my 360 died, but there's no denying if you're a fan of their franchises, they always deliver on that front.
Not sure why PC gamers clamour for ports of Rockstar games. Their ports really, really suck. GTA4 had a ton of issues, and Max Payne 3 and L.A Noire barely worked (or didn't work at all, for some people). And I say that as a person who "owns" Max Payne 3 and LA Noire on PC. I put "owns" in quotes because neither game has ever functioned quite right, despite countless hours spent trying to troubleshoot.
HOLY WOW! That is truly insane. Now I feel sheepish that I haven't played it yet.
Not sure if it's confirmed, but seeing how pretty much every single Japanese Vita game is being localized to NA, I think it is, especially since the game is coming out for PS4/PS3/Vita on PSN.
It seems really neat. I won't use it for twitch-heavy games that would suffer from even the slightest lag, but RPGs? Adventure games? Heck yeah! This is a great way to 'rent' games that you don't plan to replay. If this user's experience is true, seems like Sony is really hitting it out of the park with their streaming service.
Nintendo - as a company - is going to do fine. The 3DS is by far the highest-selling 8th gen platform. We should not dismiss that so quickly. But the Wii-U? It's pretty much going to limp along for the next few years until Nintendo can release a new console. The core philosophy of the system is what is causing the poor sales. What they NEED to do is gut the tablet controller and sell it as a Super Wii. But unfortunately, they can't simply strip out the tablet at this ...
@ maniac The developer quoted in the article says "Playstation was and still the most open platform for us. We surely talking with other guys, but communication process is faster at Sony" Based on that, we can conclude the dev feels 1) PS was and is the most open platform for them 2) Despite talking to other companies, Sony is faster at communicating. Lastly, we add in the fact that - as of right now - the g...
