I hope it's better than the Witcher Board game that launched. Not the worst board game I have played - but close. Totally missed the theme and tone of the books / games #2

A beta should be a period where people report minor problems and stress test the game.

Why someone would want to pay full price to be a QA tester is beyond me.

I suppose it's because no one actually treats the beta as a 'beta test'. It's just an opportunity to play the game a bit earlier and be on the receiving end of the bugs that people who wait to purchase won't encounter.

It makes me laugh when I see people criticisin... #2

If you're really into sim or sim/arcade games then a wheel is a brilliant device and totally worth the money. As a long term purchase that is cross gen then I have to question worth.

Considering how Logitech are not releasing next-gen drivers for the older G27 wheel then yeah, it's a gamble buying a wheel if you intend to keep it for a long time.

Other manufacturers have got their older wheels working with the PS4 so it seems Logitech are intentional... #4

Tenure for CEO positions in large corps averages about 8 years, but is shorter in the tech world.

It says he is off to pursue a new professional venture. If he were joining MS or any other competitor he would most likely be on 6 months gardening leave - however in this case he is staying on to oversee the handover, so I think it's unlikely he'll join MS. #4.1.3

XBox Live, as with any online service, is not immune to hacking. It simply means it hasn't happened yet.

Also, with Xbox Live coming to Windows 10, we have no idea if that could introduce some sort of vulnerabilities to the network. I am on XBox Live (and PSN) but I am not naive enough to think that either service couldn't be hacked.

I've been on Steam for 10 years, and this is the first time I can recall hearing of anything like this since Stea... #9.5

You really need to have played (and liked!) the Danganronpa series to get where the VR demo is coming from; or what the hell is going on!

I'd really like to see a full VR Danganronpa game - it's one of my favourite series. It could be amazing. #1.1.1

It's kinda a sad reflection of the industry right now that I'm more excited about this release than any other 'next gen' title being launched for the rest of this year #7

The article is slightly incorrect as although crowdfunding is not a pre-order service, there are a growing number of examples of legal action being taken against non-delivery... And not by individuals but by organisations such as the FTC in the US.

The FTC recently brought a successful case against a board game developer who took the money, lied about how the game was progressing, then cancelled the project. He ended up owing $112,000 in fines. Crowdfunding is no longer a &#... #7

90% of the article talks about the fantastic tech job Naughty Dog are doing.

10% talks about a 'step back' in the AA implementation and 30fps cap

Get ready for an endless stream of 'downgrade' / Uncharted 4 can't handle 60fps articles to hit N4G!!! #2

Not worth it for me.

In all the years I've been console gaming, I've only had one controller break - and that was due to spilling some drink on it.

And I don't believe that having an Elite controller is going to drastically improve my lacklustre gaming skills! #7

Having been to MineCon I think Minecraft / Mojang are going to be fine. MS kept a very low profile at the event and it seems what they are looking to do is expand into other areas / markets while keeping the core game in the hands of Mojang. There was a huge focus on modding Minecraft and on streamers / YouTubers at the event, so all the worry that MS would clamp down in these areas appears unfounded.

So, it looks like the things that MS are looking into are educational uses... #4

The Taken King digital upgrade is £39.99 in the UK, which is $63

Even factoring in VAT the price is still absurd. #2

The weird thing is, I thought the whole idea of Bungie leaving MS was they would become independent and retain more control over their IP.

But it seems clear Bungie did a deal with the devil, and that 500mill over ten years spend that Activision promised comes with a LOT of strings attached.

Bungie should have known this up front - so I blame them as much as Activision. They'd have to be stupid to think that Activision was not a money grubbing company.... #21.2

I think Bungie are in for a surprise when the digital edition of Taken King launches.

I bought the original two expansion deal as a pre-order when Destiny launched. Many people I've spoken to did the same - we all had faith in Bungie. So no matter how disappointed we were with those 2 expansions - we were locked in.

But after many months of defending the game, I am done with it. $40 is too much - but as I'm in the UK they are charging us £39 -... #19

Yup, same here. Crazy pricing. #8.1

I was one of those that liked the game a lot.

But I'm done with it.

As cool as parts of this expansion look, I won't pay the high price, or put up with content locked behind marketing agreements and Collectors Editions.

Bungie are being arrogant, and Activision are being greedy. #2.1.3

This is ridiculous.

We're getting a game we've wanted for a long time

They're using KickStarter as nothing more than a marketing gimmick to raise awareness and gauge interest

All this 'shady'crap, all these conspiracies. Find something better to do than create negativity... like y'know, play games #83

Makes sense. Gaming journalism is so negative and toxic these days that any small answer they give would be blown out of all proportion.

Also means we don't have to wade through a hundred articles as sites write one article per answer given!! #13

Ah, so the negative Shenmue III articles started to seep out like puss from a septic wound!

Let's wait and see before we start complaining about the lack of transparency on the budget.

It's already been confirmed that there's some Sony backing behind this game, who knows what other investors are in place.

We should also remember that the original budget for Shenmue was high because there had never been a game like it. It was open... #3

Not sure if trolling or just didn't watch the demo properly

The demo showed about three or four techniques for taking down the enemy. Shooting arrows. Blowing a weapon off the back of the dino so that it could be used by the player. Shooting ropes to tether the dino to the ground causing it to fall over...

Even from the short demo, it was clear this is quite a tactical combat game. It reminded me of Monster Hunter in the way the player needs to watch fo... #9.1
