I love my PS4, but damn am I crazy underwhelmed with this update - especially given the 3.0 moniker (this doesn't feel like it justifies a jump from 2.57 up to 3). Don't know how they can claim to be listening to players - plural - as this is definitely aimed at one type of player, not all of them.

Perhaps there is a larger chorus of people asking for more social integration than I am aware of. They really want Sony to focus solely on creating "PS4 Facebook"... #43
Always entertained when they say "Never say never!" Such a tease. Of course they don't want to ever shut the door on anything. It's rare when a company says anything akin to - "Oh that series? Yea, that is dead totally dead to us. Don't look for that from us in the future...ever"

I do hope that, in this case, it means we'll get one sooner rather than later. Loved it on PS3 and Vita. Great game, and one of the best downloadable game values e... #12
It'd be nice if they added a few more of the games that are less widely available at retail - like Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and the like. eBay is obviously a valid option, but wider availability would be appreciated.

Given Star Fox is in the lineup, a game with similar retail obscurity, hopefully they'll add more to the list as time goes on. #2
I'm not sure what's up with that article pic. It looks like Jeff Foxworthy went into the retro-surrealist future. To shoot some porno...also this is nowhere to be found in the video, making it feel all the more random.

OT: The video looks great. Aside from not looking ultra realistic from an art direction standpoint, you can tell just how solid a lighting solution this is. Nice gradual shadowing in softer lighting, good hard lines in stronger lighting with no aliasing... #1
OK, I'll bite. Why was it a "must get rid of it". #5.2
I agree with Dark, FF 12 was awesome. I think I replayed that one more than any other version, though I've played all of my favorites many, many times. I want a FF 12 HD Remaster (mainly just Vita if they can manage) really badly.


I loved FF 8, FF X, FF X-2 and I didn't hate the 13 series as much as others.

I really liked the battle system actually, if you played the right difficulty it was fast and fun - tactical even. I... #1.2.2
I would wager it is because the site stated "Huge" sale, and then bothered to write an article about it. That sounds like it should merit more than just your average discount. It's all about that presentation. #5.2
I'm a bit confused as to why fans of Diablo want to keep an eye on this. It looks very much like a twin stick shooter from what I can see. Akin to a game like Dead Nation with a dash button. What am I missing? #3
I'm dubious as well. These prices do indeed seem far too good to be true. I am tempted to use PayPal to roll the dice, have them back me up if it is a scam.

However I did just contact customer service to see what they had to say about the Region of the consoles and how the heck they can sell that low. I got an automated reply telling me they got my question, but I see that it was "mailed by" WordPress and the sender has the following email: [email protected].. #2
I don't get it. If this was their secret weapon for Amiibo, they'd charge $30-40 to get this into people's hands so they'd buy the Amiibo. At $60, they are clearly not aiming for Amiibo, just working it in as much as they can as with every other game they make now. #5
Any Splatoon owners who can chime in on if it is worth it for single player alone? I just don't like playing shooters online unless it is co-op (none of my other friends own Wii U's :-/). I've got plenty of options on PC & PS4, but I'd love to add another game to my Wii U exclusives collection, and the main gameplay mechanic looks pretty good.

I've always held the opinion that character movement is such a huge piece of what makes a game fun: hence my... #6
I hate to say it, but they are probably right. Sony had a few exclusives that went to PS3 after PS4 came out. MS had...none? I don't recall any for the 360 after the One dropped. Almost all the support coming for last gen is 3rd party. And we all know how hard 3rd party support is to come by on the Wii U (disc based "AAA" stuff anyways).

I expect my Wii U might limp along like my poor Vita: indies and AA games popping up from time to time (Freedom Wars, Persona... #4.1.2
Speaking of Splatoon, I am a largely single-player-game focused gamer. Shooters on the whole only interest me if they have a decent campaign as I don't care to go online unless it is co-op (fat load of good my PS Plus membership is doing for me there lol). But my question to Splatoon owners is - is the game worth owning if you only play offline?

I like my Wii U plenty, and if I can have another game to fit into my exclusives library to help add to its value, then all the... #3
I'm waiting for the Pong one!

I don't want to rain on parades, but the number of things being dragged from the past into the same UE4 grassy knoll is bordering on tedium. #5
I have to remember sarcasm does not express itself on the internet. Either label it as such or find another way to get my point across. The whole first paragraph was just a guffaw at the stupid things people will bitch about - and a vocal minority at that.

The second was genuine opinion though. #1.6.2
I hope so too. I only own a PS4 and Wii U in terms of current gen consoles, but I truly hate the pixel counting bickering. Hated it during PS3/Xbox 360 face-off garbage, and I hate it now.

We are a gaming community, but most people act like we are a squabbling, warring tribe with constant infighting. It is silly and tiring. I would love for all gamers to just get back to enjoying games and not shout at each other with insane vitriol for such ridiculous things. And hey, if MS... #1.6
Agreed. Have no interest in them making these things. I like my Wii U quite a bit, but don't understand the Amiibo thing at all. It baffles my *considerable* intelligence as to why these little figurines that either add a silly costume or whatever command such incredible mainstream mind-share.

I don't care for them, so as far as I'm concerned, I don't want anyone else wasting their time on them. But it appears I'm in the minority. So if there is money to b... #2.1
On looks alone, it certainly piqued my interest. Not a huge fan of Minecraft (yep, 1 of the 14), so I'd love to find out more about how it differs.

Couldn't find info on if it is even coming West or not. Anyone know? #3
I honestly do not understand why people don't keep their old systems that they've invested hundreds or thousands of dollars into, with a library of great games they'd like to play now...well, you can get 100% title compatibility of last gen games with your last gen console. I actually bought a used 360 like a month ago so I could play some of the exclusives I missed only playing PC, Wii & PS3. BC on current gen is a nicety to be sure, but I would much rather companies spend th... #1.1
They should probably stop releasing these small updates altogether. Bundle them into one larger one later that has at least one feature. People may wonder why the updates are further apart, but at this point these updates just end up creating little events where people bitch about updates.

Not going to sit here and say I wouldn't like some of these other features. Obviously I would. But I guess I'm happy enough with the console that I largely don't mind. I would... #1.6
