Metal Gear launches...nukes?

That's where I am. I barely play online. I still have PS+ because - let's face it - I'm getting a ton of games across the Vita, PS3, and PS4 (and PSP if you count the PSP games included with PS+). That's just too much to pass up.

But if it wasn't for that, I wouldn't subscribe to PS+. Cross-game chat isn't behind the paywall and most of my online "gaming" is me playing a SP game and talking w/ my friends while they play their own crap.

Something important is that KZ Shadow Fall is the only exclusive FPS coming out this Holiday (if we don't also count Planetside 2 on PS4).

Meaning, both consoles will be getting the usual CoD and Battlefield, but PS4 will be the only console with an alternate FPS.

It'll be interesting to see how that plays out. Sony definitely seems to be aggressively targeting the shooter crowd with the PS4 this time around.

Oh man. The story.

I'm always so torn on the story. If you just play the games, the story (especially the characters) are really terrible, IMO.

And yet, if you dig into the lore and the backstory, it's incredibly interesting to me. I wish to death that Guerrilla would give us a fully-fledged Helghast campaign that allows players to explore the struggles of the Higs, because

It's pretty clear that the Hel...

IMO, it isn't the games.

The problem is Nintendo. Their core philosophies need to change.

Franchise preferences aside, this article is correct. PS4 is a much better value, especially if you plan on using PS+.

Then again, hobbies aren't always about value. Sometimes it's fine to spend extra if it's what you want. Saving $100 and buying a PS4 does you no good if you just GOTTA play Halo, and the new Kinect functionality does you no good if you don't have cable. It's all about what YOU value.

I've spent upwards of $180 to make...

As long as the sticks are still springy, the form-factor is still good, all they need to do is improve the d-pad (which they apparently did) and improve the face buttons (which they apparently did as well) and they're good to go.

It had some technical flaws, but I also liked it a lot. Very fun. Very "epic". Tons of depth to it, too. I think people forget that most of CAPCOM's franchises start out with a lot of rough edges. Haven't people played the first Dead Rising? The first Lost Planet? Goodness, the first RE and Monster Hunter games were/are so dang clunky, but they've improved over time.

I'm excited for KZ:SF. I'm not even that big of a KZ fan. KZ was ok. I loved KZ2. I got bored with KZ3 and stopped playing it 2/3rds through the game.

And yet, KZ Mercenary and KZ SF both look like really, really awesome shooters. You could erase the KZ branding and I'd still want to buy them.

I think this article is missing something very important. Everyone wants to talk about how tablets and smartphones are going to kill consoles. IMO, they're simply expanding the market, not encroaching on the console market very much (different customers, different focuses, different products).

But what about the financial pinch? Two of three of the next-gen system are doing really poorly (Vita and Wii-U) and the third one (3DS) had some serious struggles that it has only ...

Does Minecraft have horses yet? Haven't updated my copy of Minecraft since...late last year, I think.

Very interesting interview. I've noticed something odd with CAPCOM last gen. Most of their long-standing franchises like Resident Evil and MvC and Street Fighter and DmC were either milked to death, were dumbed-down, or a mix of both.

But whenever CAPCOM released a game in their lesser-known franchises like Ace Attorney or MH, they shined. And when CAPCOM made new franchises like Dead Rising and Dragon's Dogma and Ghost Trick and Z&W, they were awesome.

This is great news simply because it leaves open the possibility for a Kinect-less SKU at a reasonable price. Seriously, the X1 should be the same price as PS4, if not cheaper, based on the hardware inside. Give customers the option, Microsoft.

1531d ago 46 agree40 disagreeView comment

Price drop is pretty necessary at this point if Sony wants the system to thrive. Funny thing is that it has games, it has a lot of good ones, and the few people who own a Vita (me being one of them) buy a lot of games. I think the average is 10 games per Vita owner or something like that.

I find it odd how the objectively-superior RAM and GPU and CPU in the PS4 "don't matter at all. Both consoles are pretty much the same"

But boy oh boy. That wizard-tech in Kinect 2.0? All that potential? Watch out! Forget the fact that people already got burned buying Kinect 1.0 for its potential. This new Kinect has MORE potential! Watch it fly off the shelves.

It's the same hate-wagon that plagued the PS3 for its first 24 months.

Ultimately, it doesn't matter if they're trolls, legitimate customers, or a mix (most likely it's a mix). Because in the end, it is the negative perception that is going to damage the Xbox brand. Anyone who thought all the negativity would evaporate after Microsoft's 180 was being a bit too optimistic. The Xbox brand has a very long road ahead. It's the same road that Sony and Ninte...

"Vita is dead"

I disagree. As long as Sony keeps it on store shelves, it will always have a chance to catch a spark. Not saying it'll fly out the door and beat the 3DS. But I don't think it's dead.

However, I do agree that Remote Play won't do anything significant to help it. For people like me who already own a Vita, it's a fantastic feature. For a handful of PS4 owners, sure, they might bite on a Vita. But for most, no. Remote ...

Having owned all three systems at one point, plus both handhelds, plus PC, I would say that the Wii is the one that most people missed out on. So many great gems that totally flew under the radar (because Wii has no hardcore games, amirite guize?)

Other than the usual mentions like No More Heroes and Xenoblade, there was SH: Shattered Memories, Z&W, Dokapon Kingdom, Sin & Punishment 2, Tak.vs.CAPCOM, Klonoa, Fragile Dreams, Boy and his blob, Bit.Trip, plenty of others...

In a game like this, the way the characters pop in the foreground and the framerate are what matter far more than texture quality. At first I didn't like how the 3DS version outlined all the characters in black but the more I see it in motion, the more sense it makes.
