Every time I see someone add an "IMO" to someone else's post, I can't help but ask: why? The post itself is an opinion. We aren't all sitting here, doing investigative journaling to figure out what is absolutely, unequivocally the best game of this generation based on fact alone that everyone agrees on wholeheartedly with. If someone reads one persons post and decides he has divined the final verdict of the best thing in existence for a wholly opinion based hobby, well t... #12.1.1
I'm actually kind of confused. Phil said this near the end of last year:

"On the DX12 question, I was asked early on by people if DX12 is gonna dramatically change the graphics capabilities of Xbox One and I said it wouldn’t. I’m not trying to rain on anybody’s parade, but the CPU, GPU and memory that are on Xbox One don’t change when you go to DX12. DX12 makes it easier to do some of the things that Xbox One’s good at, which will be nice and you’ll see improvement... #38

The balance is game companies stop putting out broken games. There is nothing inherently wrong with pre-ordering a game, but when time and again games come out broken...doesn't it seem prudent to wait and see if the product is any good?

The crux of this entire thing, though, is that games just need to be made better. Nothing has to be balanced on the consumer side of things - at least in this particular instance. #1.4.1
Something, something LEVEL 9000!?! #1
Sadly yes. You may be lucky enough for it to survive, but I had to break down and get a 2nd Gen Slim since my beautiful, monolithic backward compatible PS3 died. Good luck to you, but brace yourself for heartbreak. #1.2.2
It's Re Vive...Why does everyone keep calling it the Vive? It clearly has a stylized "re" before the "vive" part. Even the header on the official webpage is HTC Re Vive.

In any event, yea, so long as Valve can actually get this product out the door (much less 2015 as is stated), then I'm interested. At the very least, Valve and Oculus is a good duo to have dukin... #6
Don't worry about fathoms. He clearly submitted the article, if not outright wrote it. When someone's only response to an argument is an attack on grammar, you know you've already won. Or, at the very least, debating anything with that person is a complete waste of time. #1.2.3
And what of men who are born with breasts, or ovaries, or they lactate. There are many cases where biology is not so cut and dry. If you are discussing mental differences, I think if someone is so certain they are of a different gender as to be born into the wrong body, and do something to change that, then I'd say the mental difference is evident. Then again, I could keep going on about this, but with words like "butchered genitals" and "Frankensteining" and such, it... #12
I preordered it the day it was available. Best Buy is still cancelling my order. I've got a case open because I find it ludicrous that they can sell more preorders than they have allotted to them. I have little hope, but I'm not just sitting here and taking it. That's just bullsh.... #2
My two cents. They are nice, but incompetent.

I've had an issue for over a year where Origin will refuse to connect to the servers. It'll boot up and then fail to connect. No matter what I try with port openings and the like, FAQ's and of course, time spent with CS. They had no answer and offered me a 15% off coupon for my trouble. Which I thought was a nice gesture...but ultimately useless when you can't fix my issue so I can connect to the Origin store in th... #5
As someone who got this on PS3/PS Vita, take my word for it - this game is not worth it. It's an interesting concept, but things just don't work as well as they should. Being one button, there are things that happen inconsistently which you just can't have in a precision fighting game. I don't like having to know 400 button combos in things like Tekken and SF, but this game just doesn't cut it. #4
Given the current state of digital titles being tied to the hardware, they'd have to figure out a way to transfer that over before they could even begin to sell me on this. I'd have to give up software I already own just to play some new software thanks to the fact they made my old, perfectly good system obsolete. That is a pretty garbage proposal.

Also, that tiny analog nub looks...pretty awful. Maybe it'll be better in use than it looks, but it looks like it&... #4.1.1
Does anyone else notice that the extra analog stick appears to be...an ugly uncomfortable nub? If it was literally another analog stick already on the system or on the CCP, that'd be one thing. That thing looks worse than the PSP nub people largely complained about for it's lifecycle. Obviously it might be fine, but that looks pretty terrible to me.

Also yea, BS that this refresh can play new games the old one can't. I'm not gonna sell my perfectly good, and... #13
You used the word "feminazi"...hate that word. Rush Limbaugh loves you for it though. "Expect men to do everything for them"...dock you another point. We all know the cycle of men in the industry, hiring men in the industry blah blah blah. Not quite so easy for women to just make games for women.

But in all honesty, why do people talk like certain groups need to be catered to? It's basically a question of just being given an option. Or the core ques... #2.2
The Plus/Gold example isn't exactly apt, in large part due to the value proposition. If Sony or MS said "hey, DRM is here to stay but you can have several new games each month for 4 dollars a month and play them at your leisure", I think people wouldn't have had such a vicious backlash. Paying 60 dollars per title does that. I view Plus as more like a roulette game rental service. Of course you could pay 20ish bucks a month for GameFly and get what you want (if it's in s... #9.1.1
Adding L2 and R2 buttons are not feasible since that would alienate the few million PS Vita owners out there right now. They can't have that kind of divide in hardware/buttons, that's why none of the PSP redesigns had a second analog stick.

Get rid of content manager??? I can't figure out the reason behind this one. I have a 4 GB mem card right now, and I use content manager all the time to shuffle stuff back and forth wirelessly from my Vita to my PC. Why in the... #22.1
Agreed. Always online for a game that definitely doesn't require it is definitely a no-go for me. It's not an MMO or anything. I don't care if they are trying to sell us on it being always online for the games' Global Economy and multiplayer portions. There is no reason you have to be online all the time. It is strictly a form of DRM.

And yea, the games maps are much much smaller as well. Not a fan of the make 7 towns that network with each other to make one... #1.1.3
I've had this thought before, but it boils down the the fact that just because you are expressing your opinion and not a fact does not mean someone can't disagree with that. There are agree and disagree buttons for other people to quickly cast their opinion about your opinion. It's not Fact/False buttons. It's agree/disagree - buttons to express opinion. They aren't buttons to measure validity, just community opinion. That's my take anyways. #2.2.1
@stone_cold

You will have access to any "free" content you have downloaded from PS Plus for as long as you are a member of PS Plus. As soon as your subscription ends, you lose access to it. This doesn't apply to games you buy that are on sale, just the games that are "free" for that week. #1.1.2
