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...

"a great investment"

You must not know much about investing then.... to recoup a billion or more dollars, do you have any idea what that would take??? A game like GTA 5 has sold (according to reports) $2 billion (after selling over 40 million units)... Silent Hills would be lucky to sell 2 million copies on XB1 alone and it is not going to be a huge system seller like Minecraft will be (an arguably better "investment" for MS). Hell, Tomb Raider is not a s...

lol at this nonsense.

First, the game is "80% done" and will release in "March" This is ridiculous. The game was still in early development when PT was released last year. If their was any basis to the game being 80% done, launch window would have likely been announced. Either way, the likelihood of a March 2016 launch is extremely dubious.

The believe the "Well placed anonymous source" because the brilliant source told them...

I hope you are joking. I know that everyone has their own tastes - Some love CoD and some hate it, some love God of War and some hate it, some love Candy Crush and some hate it. But, Hatred is a game with zero redeeming value and just feeds into mainstream perceptions about what people believe is wrong with video games. It is not about hunting down a serial killer and needing to get into his mindset. It is not about even about getting into a serial killer'...

You could argue that the MCC was "unfinished"... the multiplayer, which is the central component of Halo, certainly was broken at release and continues to be broken to this day.

And the reason it is not coming to the XB1 right now (as is typical this generation):

He also revealed that a Xbox One version will probably come along sometime in the future. “Oh, it most likely will. Just that Sony were far easier to work with, had been on the ball for a long time, helping us along. And Microsoft didn’t. So it goes to PS4 first (and exclusively).

Best deal of the weekend not listed here... Evil Within PS4 or XB1 version only $15 at Target... $30 on sale, then 50% off that with Cartwheel for a total of $15... Picked it up today!

Hmmm... let me look in my crystal ball and predict the future.

DIGITAL FOUNDRY: http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...

From a multi-platform perspective, the PS4 game clearly leads the way with its native 1080p presentation and solid level of performance during gameplay - outside of the slight judder in story cut-scenes we're looking at a locked 30 and 60fps throughout. Meanwhile, Xbox One holds up reasonably well given the sub-native...

Between exclusive marketing rights for Batman, Star Wars and Metal Gear this year, the PS4 will do alright and continue to outsell the XB1 even without a game that can beat Halo in October. MS will need to do major price cuts and bundles this holiday season like they did last year to try and derail the PS4. And, if Sony does announce a price drop at E3, MS is in trouble. I don't see Sony making the same mistake as they did last year of not matching MS's price cut (if you want to ca...

He's right though... The math is pretty clear that the PS4 physical copy sales was 23% more than the XB1 version and 60% more than the PC version (for a total of 22% more than the PC and XB1 combined). Even if you add in digital dowloads, how can the PS4 not have sold more than the XB1 and PC combined? All three platforms had the game digitally, so even if the PC version and XB1 digital versions outsold the PS4 digital version (we don't know that it did --- it might not have or it m...

All jokes aside, this is such a great game... i put in dozens of hours and it still kicks my butt depending on how the world configures.

A "Victory"? what are you smoking? The only place that they MAY/POSSIBLY/POTENTIALLY eek out a "win" from Sony would be in the U.S. They have ZERO chance anywhere else and as a result cannot "win" this generation. It is about 22 million to 10 million in favor of PS4 worldwide. And that is before the heavy hitters get released on PS. The XB just doesn't have much of a following outside the U.S.

There is absolutely nothing to indicate that it is coming to XB1 ever. It may, but so far there has been not even a hint of it. So, good luck with waiting.

1151d ago 7 agree4 disagreeView comment

My understanding of the delay is not due to the game itself being broken, but that they want to make sure that the servers can handle the PS+ load so that it doesn't crash everything again.

From the article: "Of course it’s difficult to see the differences if you don’t squint, but compression artifact causes loss of detail, and is annoying to see for image quality purists, subtly lowering the visual impact. "

Come on, people... this is a ridiculous article. I was looking at the photos and couldn't see the difference. Then after scrolling through a couple of dozen photos, the above quoted language was inserted by the author. I guess I wasn'...

How Long to Beat.... http://howlongtobeat.com/

Some of the most beloved games out there are in the same range (or shorter) as the Order, yet the Order is getting bashed left and right. Seriously, more people need to play the game and we need to hear more feedback.

EDIT: These time estimates are for story only... obviously, a game like Far Cry has a lot more to do than the main story... but the point...

It does matter because if you have both a PS4 and an XB1, why wouldn't you want the one that looked better?

Nice trolling... the guy that beat it in 5-hours skipped EVERYTHING that was skippable, was playing on easy and didn't die once because of that.... he didn't look at any side content or do anything other than what was necessary to move through the game... There are stories all over the internet of it taking people 15 hours to complete... I'm generally slower at games and will not be playing on easy, so I expect 15 or more for me... AND, no one complained about any of the Uncharted...
