The guy paid a $50.00 difference when he traded it. There was no fraud here. Best Buy allows returns and he paid money to make up some difference in price in Best Buy's system:

From the NeoGaf user's post:

"traded the Xbox One in for the Target PS4 deal this week. Only paid the 50 buck difference. Good deal all around for those wanting to keep the Xbox One or get a PS4 with the TV."

If you haven't been on PS Now lately, check it out. It is TOTALLY reworked and looks fantastic. The bottom line on price is that it is not a bad value for what you get-- Hell, HBO charges $15 to $20 per month for its cable subscription and $15 per month for its stand-alone HBO Now service. Streaming music services such as Spotify and Apple Music are $10 per month. So, I think that it is all what you want to spend your money on. PS Now is a great service for those who never owned a PS...

It was not ND, but just one animator from ND.

"Naughty Dog" is not supporting MS's always online vision, as you stated. There was a single individual who is one of (likely dozens) of animators on UC4 who made the comment. Not ND and none of the "higher-ups" at ND.

Also, the Bioware guy, while being intrigued, had this to say:

"Bioware level/tech designer Jos Hendriks stated on Twitter that, 'Seeing Crackdown 3’s destruction makes me excited to see that game, but one ques...

Nah... with Amazon, you only pay when the item is shipped.

XB Live is down all the time too. It is not a Sony problem only this generation.

In all honesty, I had a launch PS3 60GB model. I only used the backward compatibility once to play God War 1 and 2 (I guess that's really twice).

So, for me, I don't see the draw.

Prototype was not a great or particularly memorable game when it was originally released. GoW3, on the other hand, is an amazing game and it is a testament to Santa Monica that the game looked and ran as well as it did on PS3. Plus, Protoype was available on both PS3 and XB360. However, I would venture to guess that a lot of GoW fans from the PS2 era did not play GoW3 because they only owned an XB360 and not a PS3. These remasters are awesome for those types of peo...

Honestly, while backward compatibility sounds great on paper (and it is for some), it is a feature that, when present, is not widely used. The PS3 (first iteration) had full BC through the inclusion of a PS2 chip in the system. But, it was not used by as many as you would think or as often. The new systems have new games and that is what people buy the new systems for. Is it a nice value add? Sure it is. But, it would have been FAR FAR more of a selling point if it wasn't almost 2 y...

Sony is partially funding it, as previously confirmed....

And how is it "stalled" when it has 45,046 backers and has raised $3,599,372 so far with 21 days to go??

Talk about a clickbait article!

DISCLAIMER: THIS IS MY PERSONAL OPINION AND I KNOW I AM IN THE MINORITY...

I think that there is a lot of promise in the rebooted Tomb Raider franchise, but I didn't see it in the first one or in what they showed at E3 for the sequel.

I tried to play through the reboot when it first was released on my PS3 twice, first when it was released on disk (day one) and then when it was re-released as a...

"Not only is Project Morpheus far and away better and more accessible on a sensory level than any other virtual reality tech I’ve tried, but it actually had me clamouring for more."

@fermcr

Unfortunately for OnLive, it was ahead of its time.

A few years ago, people didn't want to give us CDs, then Apple showed the ease of downloading music and,now, Spotify is showing everyone that streaming music is the way to go. Not to many people continue to buy physical music media and the number of those downloading music is starting to shrink in favor of streaming.

A few years ago (actually not too many ago!), people didn'...

Are you saying that Sony knows that you, Travis3708, will never go digital? Wow, you must be so important and integral to Sony's future game streaming plans! /s

It is his opinion. Honestly, why so defensive?

Interesting observation:

I know that most of us take VG Chartz numbers with a grain of salt... here is another reason to do so... I started noticing that their weekly numbers were running about a month behind and now about 2 months behind (for instance, only up to April 4th as of today).

I think that this long lag is giving them the ability to adjust when NPD is released. They used to adjust after the fact, but I think that their numbers were so off, they ne...

And, to add insult to injury, the Witcher which is selling FAR better on PS4, despite the marketing deal that MS brokered.

@Marlin Fan and jonnydoe

Install base does matter...

The install base will go toward determining the value of a deal. If Sony's install base is 25 million, MS would have to compensate for that value of lost sales... So, if 2 million were sold on PS4 (a little over 10% of owners), that equates to $120 million at retail, not including any marketing money and incentives that Sony might throw out there that probably puts Sony's value at $150,000 or more ju...
