"Ballmer defends Bing and Xbox"

Is that why he was asked to leave?

Keep in mind, he's done with the company. He's made his fortune. Now he simply wants to preserve his reputation and his legacy. Bing and Xbox were the two biggest projects on his watch (including a bunch of smaller, failed projects) and he doesn't want to go down in history as the man who brought financial ruin to Microsoft.

The clock is ticking for the ...

...which is well within normal electronics failure range, ESPECIALLY for a newly-launched piece of hardware. Which is what most rational people were saying. My condolences for those whose systems broke, but that's the risk of being on the cutting edge.

Much ado about nothing.

Good to hear they're patching it. It's one thing for a game to have bugs, but it is worse for those bugs to persist. At least they're taking care of the issues Day 1.

This is news? I should write my own article

"My 25 Years with Microsoft since MS-DOS"

I laugh at people who were blindsided by Microsoft's behavior. You were warned. You didn't listen.

I think military FPSs need to move in the direction of ARMA. Sadly, Battlefield was once fairly realistic and continued to improve, but then it went all CoD. SOCOM was once realistic, but the series has pretty much just died. We need more detail, more granularity, no "perks", no autoaim, bullet drop, drift, etc. and more skill required to run vehicles.

With modern console hardware, they'd have no problem running ARMA III or at least ARMA II. Those games offer hu...

At least Sony is keeping a level head. 1st day sales are cool, but let's wait until 1st year sales are done to really sit back and celebrate.

This game really seems perfect for the Vita. I wish NIS would port more of these niche titles to Vita. Can't wait for the upcoming Vita ports of Disgaea 4 and Disgaea D2. Playing these sort of RPGs on a console just isn't viable for me anymore.

Victim complex. Similar to how certain Xbox-focused websites and Xbox fans were convinced the entire internet had been hijacked by "dem Sow-Nee fanburrs" after the Xbox One reveal went so horribly, horribly wrong.

Yep. PS4 is out. Now Gamestop wants your preorders for Xbox One. It's all just business. PS4 will sell more in the West so you can bet Gamestop will end up supporting PS4 more heavily, just like they did with the 360.

All negative news is popular. Just look at the huge roster of "X things I hate about PS4" articles that've been coming out.

"Professionals" can be just as biased.

What is important to realize is that these reviews are by the early adopters. Tell me, who spends $500 on a system, $100-200 on several games (plus more on extra accessories) and then turns around and says "these games are mediocre". It makes the buyer look and feel like an idiot.

When I go to the PSN store, most games are in the 4/5 stars or higher range. A few games have LOW stars and I typically av...

@ Death

It seems like a leap to say that Sony INTENDED for reviewers to not have reviews too early. It's an even further leap to imply they did it to hide something or cover something up, as if early reviews would - in one fell swoop - destroy all of the PS4's momentum.

Let's give the game a chance to prove itself. Are the "haters" (I put that in quotes because this game isn't going to appeal to everyone) going to change their mind if it gets great scores?

Are the "fanboys" (again, in quotes because some people are genuinely interested in Ryse and that's ok) going to change their mind and not get the game or get an XBox One if the reviews are bad?

Of course not. The people who want to get it w...

I remember when grass mattered, because 360 had more of it on Mafia II. I remember when water mattered, because 360 had better water in RDR. I remember all the times when pixel-counting comparison sites (like digital foundry) pointed out the tiniest of differences, highlighting a minor blip in framerate or circling the smallest of jaggy in multiplatform games. Those things sure did seem to matter back then, right?

Oh, but now? Now they don't matter. Huh. I wonder why... ...

How predictable that the western media is downplaying hardware power (the area where Microsoft is behind).

Fact: there is a bigger gap in power between the PS4 and X1 than there was between the PS3 and 360. Hardware power mattered back then. Why does it magically not matter now? Just like 1080p doesn't matter any more?

Exactly. Don't expect Sessler and Crew to give a reasonable opinion in the weeks to come. This was the guy crying that Sony wouldn't send him a free PS4, but as he says in this video, they have an Xbox One (free from MS) and they've had a lot of time to use it.

This is going to be one of those "In Certain Regions" sort of things.

North America, Western Europe...and that's about it. Pacther has been singing this "subsidized console" stuff since late 2011. It hasn't happened yet. I imagine it'll be a while before it does eventually happen.

Oh, so Metacritic matters all over again?

LOL. Back to the days of 2008...
