Yeah, a bit of a hyperbole. What's hilarious is that - last gen - the PS3 was called the "updatestation" because it updated with small features every month or two. The 360 had larger updates that were few and far between (maybe 2 times a year). But of course now that the Xbox One gets small updates every 4-6 weeks the PS4 is lambasted for "lagging behind". Talk about media bias!
True. Ironically, this is way beyond what the Xbox One was promising as the "good side" of its DRM scheme. And yet, PS4 is offering Share Play without restricting your games like Microsoft wanted to.
@ GodGinrai "The XB1 is performing better than the X360 at the same point in its life cycle. in the first year of the x360, it had no competition." Actually, that's false. Xbox One sold more in its first two months compared to 360, but if you actually align the launches, 360 had sold more at this point in time. In addition, 360 had a lot of supply constraints (sold out in many stores). So yeah. that's pretty...
PS3 was trailing behind (worldwide) because it launched a year later. PS3 was actually "outselling" the 360 if you aligned the launches. Obviously. It couldn't be 8m consoles behind and then magically catch up unless it was selling more than 360 month-to-month. And yet.... Despite the advertisement, PS3 still sold millions less in North America.
Add it to the chalkboard. "______ will save XBox One" Did X1 win in NPD (we're not even talking about Worldwide anymore because everyone knows that Sony won) when Titanfall launched? How about all those bundles throughout summer? How about the Kinect-free console, which was a $100 price drop? Did they win in Destiny month when the system was being sold with FREE GAMES?
Very funny considering IGN was the main player in the #resolutiongate debacle where they lied and used degraded PS4 footage on CoD:Ghosts to make both versions look "pretty much the same" Knew it was a joke article just by reading the title. As if IGN would hold itself to a higher standard ....
Sadly I think it will not be the sort of game to push the Xbox One, despite the advertisement. We have plenty of open-world games (I'm not saying they're equivalent to Sunset Overdrive) and most people would rather buy the new GTAV remake or Destiny (kinda open-world) or Far Cry 4 or Assassin's Creed for their open-world fix this holiday.
Here's another good example: Quote: "Microsoft has spent more than $47 million for Xbox One ads on television this year, according to data from iSpot.tv. That is around 50 percent more than Sony’s $30 million. With that increased marketing budget, Microsoft has had 5,000 commercials while Sony has settled for closer to 3,000." 811d ago 5 agree1 disagreeView comment
I'm actually curious about their economic situation over there. Reason why I ask is because here in the USA a ton of jobs are eaten up by people in their 40s and 50s and 60s+, the same sort of jobs that - 20 years ago - were "entry level jobs" for people going to college. Nowadays you can either work a crappy job or you can rack up student loans and hope to get a less-crappy job. That sort of depressing environment would certainly lead to "laziness". H...
I'm so in! I will be making an apple pie. Sorry that it isn't cake but I don't know how to make one.
Does it really matter which one is better? It was already confirmed that PS4 version will have higher resolution (and likely better effects) than X1, so true gamers will just get both games and enjoy both on PS4. Only people who miss out are those who can't play both and make their own decision as to which one is more impressive.
"5 years and only 20 million sold is terrible." It's certainly not great, and it's certainly odd that Nintendo abandoned the wider market of the Wii and DS in favor of...this. But it's not terrible. It would be as well selling as the Gamecube and Xbox. It would be better selling than te Saturn and Dreamcast. As long as Nintendo remains profitable enough, they'll be able to stay within the game market and try again next gen.
Honestly, I'm sad that our industry is so immature that we get swept away by these sort of discussions. When an industry (and the media that covers it) becomes more concerned with ethics and social issues and politics (and don't fool yourself: the so-called "social justice" types are a political movement, not a kind-hearted philanthropic one) instead of trying to entertain their customers, then it harms the entire industry. It stifles true creativity and instead replaces it ...
I find it incredibly ironic that the main feature of the original restrictive Xbox One DRM (the fact that you could share your library with friends by just logging into Xbox Live) is now available on PSN and no DRM required.
I feel bad for Phil Fish. Last time when he "exited" the game industry, gamers were taking the side of a stuck-up journalist - a journalist! - and Fish got tens of thousands of hateful Tweets and emails and comments. You tell me: does that make you want to make videogames?
Wii-U will be a great niche console. I've been harsh on the system in the past (feel free to check my post history) but I'm very pleased with it since I picked it up earlier this year. Plenty of really fantastic titles available on it.
I've been a contributing member of N4G for years, and a lurker for years prior. This is, hands down, the most fantastic thing I've ever seen on the website. Not only did it keep me clicking back to the site to check for new prizes, but to be perfectly honest I was most thrilled to see a new game highlighted every day. Most "real" (i.e. IGN, Joystiq, etc) videogame sites don't highlight even HALF this number of indie games in a given month. 899d ago 3 agree0 disagreeView comment
Oh man. This game looks so sweet. The dev obviously have a legacy of top-notch quality. Can't wait!
Looks like that "unparalleled partnership" between Microsoft and EA continues... Seems like a neat way to catch up on the EA backlog, but I don't see how this is superior to Gamefly or PS+ I sincerely hope, however, that this isn't the wave of the future. Imagine EA Access, Activision Access, CAPCOM access, etc. and then those companies start adding in exclusive content only available through their Access subscriptions. PS+ already does thi...
It's one of the best games of all time, according to some. Why is that a "sad" thing?
