It's the same kind of FUD that Sony fanboys tried to pull back when the PS3 launched.

"Sony has the best brand recognition. It will dominate like always"

"Sony has all these exclusives. No one will want to buy a Wii or 360".

etc etc

Xbox loyalists need to realize that Microsoft has been stumbling for the last few years, now finally fell, and broke several teeth on the concrete. And just because they... #1.1.3

Digital Foundry's credibility is junk-bond status right now after all the jumped guns and falsified "insider sources" they've been dredging up lately, specifically Richard Leadbetter.

Here's a list of some DF articles since February.

- 4 Gig PS4 is more powerful than 8 Gig Xbox One
- "Magic holes" found in the Xbox One esRAM that gives the system a mysterious upclock.
- Only 4.5 Gigs of RAM alloted for gaming on... #1.1.2

I have to...understand the momentum? No. I'm sorry. Microsoft has LOST momentum, not gained it, unless you consider nabbing the ever-fickle casual audience with Kinect to be "momentum".

Now, am I saying the Xbox brand is a dud? Absolutely not. But to think that Microsoft has some sort of all-powerful brand-loyalty and brand-recognition, especially after the last months (years, actually) is beyond optimistic.

It's blind.

And... #3.1.1

360 didn't "win" even with a year head-start, a $200 price advantage, an advantage in online, and an advantage in exclusives and superior multiplats for the first few years.

And PS3 still caught up and surpassed 360.

How is a more expensive Xbox One launching at the same time as the less-expensive PS4 magically going to beat Sony's machine? #3

Terranigma should definitely be on that list since North America never got it, even though it's already translated into English. #1
Good to hear there's a slight upclock, as long as it doesn't create heat issues.

So, lemme guess? Now that Xbox One's GPU is slightly faster (though still significantly behind PS4's) GPU matters all over again? Even though the war cry for the last three months was "RAM doesn't matter. GPU doesn't matter. CPU doesn't matter. It's all about Tiled Resources and Move Engines" now it's all about "teh powah of the GPU!!!"
Handhelds are doing fine. Last-gen we had the highest selling handheld of all time and the highest-selling non-Nintendo handheld of all time.

The thing is, Microsoft probably wouldn't WANT to make a handheld. They have Windows mobile and Windows Phone stuff which has the chance to make significantly more money, so they'll just put it on that. A dedicated handheld doesn't fit in their business model.

And remember, handhelds need to thrive in Japan... #1.2
I think the bigger question is why is Earthbound exclusive for the Wii-U when it was one of the most-requested VC game on Wii. Iwata himself hinted at Earthbound coming to VC on Wii before the Wii even launched. #1.1
I think there's a conflict when you take a bunch of paid subscribers and put them all online. On the one hand, they "deserve" to be there because they're paying customers, but their idea of having a fun time might mean a really bad time for other paying users.

It is why MMOs are so heavily moderated 24/7 by a dedicated, paid staff. Xbox One's reputation system is just the newest in a long line of "community driven moderation" failures. It won&#... #1.4
No, Nintendo is the original holder of the "Metal Gear" game. The first Metal Gear game came to NES and MSX2. The superior version was on MSX2. Then NES got a non-canon sequel which made Kojima want to make a "real sequel" which was exclusive to MSX2.

And then "Metal Gear Solid" came out, which was exclusive to Playstation 1.

So, no. "MGS" (Metal Gear Solid) started on Playstation and even its predecessors weren't... #2.1.1
Sony fans will buy PS4. Microsoft fans will buy Xbox One.

I think a huge portion of gamers live in the middle with no strictly-defined loyalties to any one brand. They're die-hard gamers, but they're not die-hard Sony/MS/Ninty gamers. They'll go where the games are, where the cost is cheaper, where the value is greater, or whatever else seems important, regardless of what logo is slapped on the case.

Right now, I think the PS4 has that "mass... #1

I'll take "What is journalism", Alex, for 500. And it's the Daily Double!!!

Sadly, modern game "journalism" has no clue, and I agree with what you said. #1.1.2
How many more "inside source" articles does Digital Foundry have? And how many more times are we going to believe them? It seems like all the negative Sony "inside sources" as well as all the positive Microsoft "inside sources" both flock to Digital Foundry, and neither end up being true.

Keep in mind, folks, that Digital Foundry was the site that claimed that a 4 Gig PS4 (before news hit that PS4 had 8 Gigs of RAM) was more powerful than an 8 Gi... #2.1.5
Anyone who says this is a bad thing either

a) doesn't know a thing about game engines, or
b) is being a snob

Havok has been in use for over 10 years. That Xbox One shooter everyone was going ga-ga over, Titanfall? Built in an engine from 2004.

"Engines" aren't something that need to change every generation. #1.3
Polygon has been a try-hard lately at the whole sexism debate (not that they're a trustworthy website anyway...) once they saw all the ad revenue Kotaku was getting from milking those topics.

Isn't it inherently sexist to assert oneself over what is or is not appropriate for a fictional, digital videogame woman to look like?

I mean, who's the sexist? The guy who invented the Pokeball or the "journalist" who insists a Pokeball is sexist b... #1.2
But what's the point of an exclusive if it sells the most on your console anyway? Fanboys made much ado about FF13 going multiplat and yet it sold nearly three times as much on PS3 as it did on 360. You think Metal Gear 5 being multiplat is going to hurt the PS3? After MGS4 (and the recent Legacy Collection) still being exclusive to PS3? It's like Mass Effect: yeah, it came out on PS3 eventually, but on which console did it sell the most? 360. #1.3.9
For what it's worth, not being willing to confirm or deny its exclusivity means - in my eyes - that it is probably exclusive or in the process of being locked down as an exclusive. Remember, CAPCOM is a mostly-multiplat company, but they DO make exclusives, and most other games have already been confirmed as exclusive or multiplat. For instance, immediately after the Final Fantasy 15 presentation, it was confirmed 14 was exclusive but 15 was multiplat. And Dead Rising 3? Immediately confi... #1.1.1
"they did pretty well at E3, even when they only showed like 1 new IP lol. "

A bit unfair. Unlike Microsoft, Sony showed off a lot of brand-new exclusives at their reveal, which took the edge off the showing of those same games at E3. How many exclusives were shown at Microsoft's May 21st reveal? Forza?

Now, in no way am I implying Microsoft's E3 showing was lame (even though everyone was focusing on *ahem* certain other now-improved issues)... #1.1.8
I hope this game sells quite well (even though I know it's a niche title).

A) We need more detailed non-anime art like this in the game industry. I'm not saying anime art is bad, but Dragon's Crown has a very "western" look to it in many ways, and it's nice to see a hand-drawn art style that isn't dripping with primary colors and oversized eyes

B) We need more "arcade revival" games. This game takes the old-school beat... #1.3
For modding on consoles to work, it needs one key feature: reputation. I'm not saying this as a negative, but most modders want recognition for their work, and on PC they can get that through message boards, fan-feedback, and perhaps even land a job in the industry.

But on a console? It'll just be a sorted list of mods that people can download with little or no method to praise the creator. #1
