With the advent of cheap games and cheap consoles (Wii), I think there's definitely a market for a straightforward, inexpensive console platform. Sony needs to bring this to the West but they need to advertise it properly (Vita TV? No. Change the name, please).

Yep. Vita keeps chugging along. I get so much playtime out of the thing. Currently waiting for Vita versions of Terraria and Minecraft.

You need to read more closely. I said that 3D Mario doesn't help a platform succeed. The market reacts differently to 2D sidescrolling Mario and 3D Mario. 2D Mario sells the systems. 3D Mario sells to existing owners of the system.

Seems like they like the system, but the media functions are only worth it if you're willing to set up your entire living room EXACTLY how Microsoft wants it. Xbox One's "hub" is far less flexible than Microsoft first led people to believe.

Not Yet"

Goodness, the FUD and desperation is going full-steam it seems. All these no-name sites coming out of the woodwork to tell us how "horrible" the PS4 launch was.

Where are the "10 fantastic things about the PS4 launch" articles? Huh? I thought N4G was full of Sony fanboys, right? At least, that's what I see certain N4G users claiming on a daily basis...

When has a 3D Mario ever made a Nintendo platform succeed?

Think about it.

Super Mario 64 sold, sure, but the N64 lost a ton of the fans who bought an SNES and NES. Super Mario Sunshine on Gamecube did nothing to keep that console from getting last place. The port of Super Mario 64 on DS did nothing to jumpstart sales (it wasn't until Brain Age, Nintendogs, and NSMB that the DS took off). Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 sold millions less than NSMB Wii. The mo...

This article isn't talking about playstation?

The opening line is "The PS4 isn't the enterainment hub that we were expecting" But the Xbox One is, apparently. How is that not talking about Playstation?

1642d ago 22 agree2 disagreeView comment

Nope. 8 GBs of the PS4's RAM would cost at least $150 off the shelf. The processor, another $150, the mobo, another 100, $50 for the hard drive, $50 for the case...$50 for wires and a cheap power supply.

And even then, you'd still be left with a very mediocre PC.

"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...
