For comparison: Xbox One used to cost £429 in the UK.
The PlayStation 4 currently costs £349 in the UK. X1 still isn't "cheaper" nor even the same price as PS4, though the bundled game does even it up a bit.

But this also may backfire. A lot of people (3+ million) bought an X1 in the last few months, and many of them bought it for Titanfall. GG, Microsoft. You just proved to your customers "Don't buy now. Just wait for us to get desper...

Consoles, PCs, handhelds, what are they?

They're just boxes you buy to get the games you want.

As long as many of the world's most talented developers reside on consoles, then consoles will continue to exist. The convenience, speed, and peace of mind of gaming on a handheld/console, not to mention the inherent quality control is something that will always find a market.

It was quite a controversy when 3DS dropped in price about 6 months after launch. People said it was a sign the system wasn't doing well (and they were correct, at the time at least).

Not sure why such a huge price drop isn't also considered a controversy. It's a pretty obvious sign that Microsoft is desperate.

Thing is, if the PS4 STILL outsells the X1 in the UK in the following two months, you can pretty much just nail up the coffin for the X1 i...

Well, if you also include all of the indie support for the PS4, it wins by a landslide.

But it's not just about exclusives, remember? It's also about the best multiplats.

That's what the 360 fanbase kept insisting over and over again when the 360 exclusives dwindled.

So, PS4 wins in that regard, hands down. Anyone interested in Watch_Dogs, Witcher 3, MGS5, Dragon Age 3, the next CoD and BF, Destiny, Thief, FF15 (if it comes out th...

This resolution argument is pathetic. Last-gen, websites made a huge fuss if a PS3 version of a multiplat was 20p less than the 360 version.

But now? Oh, there's no difference between 720p and 1080p. I mean, if you need any "tin foil conspiracy" evidence that the industry is a joke, here it is!

There absolutely is a difference. The only way you're going to get better quality games is if you stand up and ask for better quality. Or, you know, ...

There are plenty of good-looking games on X1, and the fact is that X1 games look better graphically than anything on Wii, 360, or PS3 (that's not some huge stretch to admit that).

Thing is, we know X1 is inferior to PS4 in the power department. In some cases, games actually DO play differently between the two consoles. Specifically, a 30 fps game plays very different than a 60 fps game. That's a fact. Anyone saying otherwise needs to adjust their fanboy goggles.

Just so you know, there is going to be a $200 Vita Slim bundle with Borderlands 2 and an 8G stick included w/ the system. Comes out mid-march in the US.

"Why do you feel Destiney will sweep Titanfall under the rug? There hasn't been nearly enough gameplay, info or any buzz for that game unlike Titanfall."

I don't believe a game's success has anything to do with pre-release buzz or hype, especialy when it's so manufactured as is the case with some (not all) of Titanfall's hype.

But anyway, I think Destiny will kill Titanfall for four major reasons:

1) Destiny is m...

All platforms are going to struggle this gen, PC included, smartphones included, everything included. But that's simply due to the economic conditions.

There will certainly be a 9th gen and I anticipate that after we see the game industry crater during this gen, publishers and devs will be re-examining what made the Wii a success and made the PS2 a success, etc. Profitability is going to be the most important thing this gen since it will put companies in the best position...

The hype just keeps building and building, but it feels so contrived. If it kills CoD, then it kills CoD. But it won't. It won't come close. Heck, Titanfall will get swept under the rug when Destiny comes out (a lot of fans on both the Playstation side and Xbox side are excited to see Bungie's first big game in half a decade).

And unlike Respawn entertainment, Bungie still has their name, a name they are well-known for. If EA can't kill CoD with Battlefield, h...

I believe it's already up to 40M.

It's selling millions on 360. It just came out on PS3 (sold 1 million in the first month). It's coming soon to Vita (I think it will be a surprise hit because it will be the only portable "Console Edition". Tablets get the pocket edition which is missing a lot of stuff).

And it will be launching on X1 and PS4 later this year, too.

Not only is this info old, but it's been proven to be false. You can't magically use tiled resources to cram 6G worth of textures through a 32M eSRAM pool.

Thanks for the review. I'm finishing up DanganRonpa and Corpse Party and this one looks like another game I'd like to try.

Doesn't seem too far-fetched. Just a month ago, Microsoft and EA were both exposed for running Youtube "promotions" for youtube users to give positive feedback on games without disclosing they were paid.

Microsoft + EA = Titanfall. Even if Respawn themselves aren't footing the bill, does it seem so far-fetched that people have been bribed when it has been confirmed that the game's publisher and the game's console sponsor (MS) are both bribing Youtube...

It was confirmed for NA localization for fall this year about 1 week after this one came out.

It might have had something to do with the fact that DanganRonpa was NISA's most-preordered-game in NA in the history of the company.

It's very interesting to watch this unfold. Prior to launch, pundits said that X1 would still outsell PS4 in the USA, though not as much as the 360 outsold PS3. They gave all their reasons (stronger brand, Microsoft focusing heavy on USA, etc). And these were the same people who called the last-place 360 a "winner" because why? Because "it stole a lot of marketshare".

At launch once the numbers rolled in, these pundits said "well, um...PS4 and X1 ...

The opposite of Broken Age?

OH! So he means it will release on time and it will be one big game instead of being broken up into multiple games?

I think all of the Big Three will have a great E3. I'm actually most interested in seeing what is announced for the handhelds (I hope those aren't forgotten).

I wonder if we'll get any megaton announcements.
