Sort of but sort of not. I like what they have introduce and it is good to see Microsoft making strides in areas others don't dare to go but they still didn't address their main issue of why their competitor is selling more than them and why so many old consumers have jumped ship. Maybe they can't and this is them trying to move past it by introducing desirable features others do not offer but it will always hold them back. #5
"Anyone who thinks $149 isn't fair for this is probably jobless and living in their mothers basement."

Or we just see the illogical nature of the premium price model. Controllers are overly expensive as it is. 149 is not reasonable as the only reason why it is this expensive is to carry that premium market image (it doesn't matter if it is made out of metal or comes with special software as mass production negates the expense). It is like the Apple Watch. It... #2.2.3
Sony should not go in full guns blazing and offer a similar system. If they are going to do it they need to do it right. Same applies to Microsoft. The problem Steam has with early access is they allow any old rubbish to appear and for games to be dropped mid development. I am anxious to see how Microsoft manages it as any company wishing to do this needs to be careful and do it right. Early access is a mess. #6.1
Possibly but the logic is flawed. BC would never do that without them addressing the real reason why more people have picked up a PS4 over an Xbox One. I am glad they have done it as it will force Sony's hand to emulate it in some way but the marketing point will not work without address their fundamental problem they have with the One (which is performance discrepancies between the two systems) #12.1.1
I thought it looked incredibly. Much better than I thought it would be (though the way these games are presented are hectic mayhem but that never turely materializes in real life) However, I still think the exclusion of space battles will be sorely missed in this game. Just imagine all that but you could have flown into space. #2.3
I quite like these small titles from big publishers. Ubisoft seemed to be the only ones doing it last year. It is nice to see EA make a serious attempt with these types of games #1.1
Why the premium price? Sell the base slightly more expensive than the current model as consumers are more likely to swap parts in and out (as that will also cost a bit of money). It could have sold loads that way. It is making itself an exclusive item but those people who will spend that much on a controller no doubt have their own ideal, possibly third party, controllers. #3
It needed to be that though. I personally thought their lasts E3 conference to be abysmal since they didn't show anything with their mega bomb shell being mismanaged and misrepresented. This was a lot better. It was clear, it showed what they needed to show and their bomb shell was clear and easy to understand. The only thing they didn't address was the elephant in the room but they have given consumers something to actually think about #1.1.1
Well it will be publisher driven. It was fairly obvious by the announced games how the service will run. Mass effect 1, Rainbow Six Vegas 1 and 2..... very old games. The remasters that do very well are collections or fairly recentish games that bridge the gap between old and new systems (for example remember this game you bought two years ago well here it is but prettier). There is room for both and there will be since remasters sell and make a ton of money #4.2.2
PS Now isn't for backward compatibility. Sony has expressed this quite often. PS Now is to push gaming without the need for a console. It is the Netflix style model. It is to entice the consumer who doesn't really want to spend £300+ on a system to just play games. It is for consumers to drop in and out when ever they feel like it. It is the evolution of consumer gaming. BC doesn't have the same appeal since a further £300+ in advance is needed for it to work. BC is for... #12
If they are I hope it isn't focused on Franklin as he was the worse out of the three if not a poorly thought out character in general. To be honest if they are going to do story dlc they should do something similar to TBGT. That was by far the best storyline that has come out of the modern GTAs. I would like to see new characters #7
I personally do not like this trend. E3 is becoming that event where logos/CGI trailers are just thrown up for the sake of filling time. I would prefer everyone to show when they are ready. Look at The Division. It was a long time ago when that was first shown. My interest has gone #1.1
No but they need to present/reveal games on a big stage. They get the most coverage. If they don't the VR stuff will not get the same coverage. #2.1
That isn't the point nor the angle for this type of service. The point is too sell this service as an alternative to buying a console (buy a month when ever you want/when something worth playing comes along or rent a game every so often)

The big challenge is how they will sell it. Bundling controllers with future TV sets will work but they also need to make a big TV advert push. Sell it as a console alternative but the entry price is the controller not a fully fledged sys... #5.1
I really doubt it. To be honest, the way I see them re announcing this game isn't on a big stage like they did last time. I can see it being done through their blog in a slower part of the year. Where they can put up dev diaries and what not to convince others it is actually coming. #6
It might have something to do with the fact it hardly sold on consoles. It is fairly enough. Might make the game better anyway being focused on a platform #2
Why? The fact they can be easily upgraded means less is more useful and more powerful for them. AS long as Microsoft don't offer crazy storage options Sony should not really bother. For them it is a waste of money for not much gain (similarly for Microsoft who offer external hard drive support) #12
I would go as far and say appropriate "games" are, sort of, already in the classroom. Granted, being a primary school teacher, my scope is limited to what I know but games are in most, if not all, lessons.

The problem schools have is justifying spending money on something that can be done far better and more useful in a practical sense. I use more appropriate games in my lessons to support learning a topic. But these video games never, and should never, take centre... #1
If Sony is adamant about making another The Last of Us, I would rather they have separate self contained stories with each instalment. #5

VR will not get the casual on board. They are more likely going to get on board with things like PS Now. Something that doesn't require extra hardware; can be cancelled at any time; and, hopefully, will be fairly inexpensive in the short run.

It is those type of things that will get the "casual consumer" not some exciting bit of hardware. #2.1
