It looks like someone working for Gamesbeat is feeling sorry they bought Microsoft shares and are now trying to spew nonsense in a feeble attempt to spread misinformation. The entire list can be summarized as "Shit that no one cares about or even noticed they had" I mean, controller battery life? Really? No one heard of charging their controller while playing or not playing? Either with the free charge cable or with a controller stand? Give me a break... I still ca...
I laughed out loud when the "author" who is a PC fanboy claims that Crytek should have stuck to PC gaming only and pushed graphical boundaries, as if they weren't doing that already. Their problem wasn't going to consoles, it was in gameplay. Crysis was a 5-7 hour single player game with just OK multiplayer. If it weren't for console sales Crytek would have been bankrupt years ago. Crysis 2 and 3 were the most pirated games for each year they came out a...
lol wow, this whole thing just screams crybaby Microsoft fanboyism. They get exclusive Call of Duty timed DLC, and other timed exclusives yet when someone else gets a timed exclusive Alpha they cry like man-children... And you all wonder why no one outside of the gaming industry take gamers seriously, and assume that gaming is still a children's hobby, probably because they're right, you're all of bunch of whiny screaming tantruming self-entitled babies.
Reggie from Nintendo should talk more about handheld success if he's going to spout Nintendo's strengths. When he starts yammering about the Wii U's sales figures all he can muster is "Well we're technically in second place" even though the PS4 outsold the Wii U's entire install base after being on sale for just 2-3 months while they Wii U had been out over 15 Months at that same time. Here's how it will look when the dust has settled:
The author IS a moron, but not because of the reasons yellowgerbil outlined. He's a moron because he was expecting the entire game, the story, all the characters, the setting, the new moves, all to be outlined and explained in the very first teaser video. I mean hello, no one does that. It's called a teaser for a reason - to get the fanbase excited who already love the franchise. If the author is complaining that the tiny teaser trailer didn't outline the entire game to "Give...
Of course, she needs liposuction and doesn't want to pay for it, and she ran out of money buying ugly, gawdy jewelry.
That's the thing, you have 2 different departments, one which focuses on refining current hardware to lower manufacturing costs, and another research and development team which designs future hardware. Yes, you can walk and chew gum at the same time.
You've obviously never heard of troll reviews, sites that put out negative reviews of extremely popular games to get more hits. They know that nerds will flock to their sites to fill up the comments with hate, that's what the site wanted! They get a ton of money with ad revenue doing that, and all your nerds out there who buy into it and fall into their trap are just sheep!
This whole list might as well have been titled "Crap no one plays anymore... except for a few sad souls still playing their PS2 and other stuff belonging in the gaming archaeology exhibit" lol
Learning to let go and play other games that aren't making you angry is the key to prevent raging and breaking controllers. When I came to this fact, and knew that there were more important things in life than games, and that I value the money I would have to spend on a new controller than the temporary venting of smashing my controller against the floor.
There's a lot of crystal balling going on in this article, rather than legitimate analysis. There is no data to back up any of their claims, it's just rhetoric and conjecture posing as analysis.
This dev team has no publisher backing them, they are self funded through a Kickstarter campaign. Indies require donations to get games made, thus they will be attracted to the most financially feasible option with the least BS. It isn't a matter of laziness but a matter of having no money even for a boxed retail version. I can tell this little brat Stealth Pandemic hasn't done shit in his life, else he would've understood this fact about doing business. You can&...
I deserve a PS4! I'm broke! Karma come my way!
Static 60 FPS is different than dynamic 60 FPS. Static means it's locked and never deviates. Dynamic means if there is extra load (ie. more cars on screen) then the framerate can dynamically deviate to compensate for the extra polygons on screen. If you've programmed it just right the player won't notice it, however if it's jerky it becomes very noticeable, it's all about how smooth the transition is between 60 and sub 60 FPS.
It isn't just the darker shadows, it's the more advanced lighting, higher resolution textures and lighting on each individual object. It's also the higher and steadier framerate. We DO need comparisons like these, as not everyone is schooled in the differences of each version. I always hear X-bone fans clamoring about how the differences aren't anything noticeable in a feeble attempt to justify their fanboy attitudes.
LOL @ Smallmammy ^ Watch out we got an internet bad ass over here! There are just as many trolls who choose to hate Sony and/or Microsoft. If you don't notice the ones who hate Sony, it's because you're too busy hating Sony yourself that your fanboy eyes can only see people hating Microsoft - all of which was more than well deserved quite frankly. If you aren't being paid by Microsoft to defend them, you're like a free prostitute...
Yes, going to miss him, but if you've seen the amount of work that is heaped onto you day after day, week after week, year after year, being at the very top, you can only do it for so long before you have enough money that you realize the 60-80 hour work weeks aren't worth it anymore. At some point you want to do what you really want and enjoy your life, where you don't need to do a lot of things that stress you out just for the extra money.
There were more serial killers and sociopaths long before videogames even existed. Look at how Dexter displays violence - that it is a perfectly viable solution to a problem. It's no different than videogames. Yet, in real life we understand there are consequences to our actions, and that there are inherent cause and affect relationships between our actions and the outcomes of those actions. If you want to argue mentally ill people, we can't frame all of life based o...
Try telling a dev who is forced to work with the X-bone to make their game 1080p and 60fps... with all the bottlenecks it just isn't feasible for the vision that is put forth by the dev and publisher. This is why Titanfall won't be 1080p... they wanted different aspects that just can't run at that high of a resolution, and you need to make tradeoffs. If you were a dev you'd understand, so if you're reading this confused, know your place.
You can't store games on external drives, just multimedia. Also, the biggest hard drive currently in existence that will fit the PS4 is 2TB. This was a breakthrough in laptop hard drive technology. It's highly unlikely Sony will put this expensive new hard drive technology into its PS4, as it has always allowed you to upgrade yourself. That 2TB hard drive costs 150, so a $550-$600 PS4 with a few extra features may be a but much for some.
