Blind faith is such a sad thing. Your use of biblical passages and Sony's apparent persecution makes this whole situation rather hilarious to me.

Not even a cure for cancer is worth getting this worked up over.

It's not Sony's fault that they can't guarantee quality control on their products. It's clearly propaganda by Xbots to make the PS4 look bad. /s

I'm glad that I've already jumped over to PC gaming instead.... #10

I don't think you should be so cavalier about this. These people who got an early launch PS4 are probably not using this to get attention and are a bit miffed at not being able to play any games on it. I would be annoyed if I couldn't use something; especially if I forked out a substantial amount of money.

If this is a widespread problem, then it'll be interesting to see all of the Sony fanboys defending it.

Failure awaits Sony if this is widespr... #17.2

I want the truth. There is something very weird going on and game journalism has barely a shred of integrity there but I can no longer trust publishers or developers either. I look at the last-gen and all the things that happened in it and I think game journalists have a measure of responsibility for the way things have become. Publishers and developers also ought to cut the PR responses and actually engage with the unwashed proles. #4

Hardware faults happen but it's not particularly welcome when it happens to you. You spend a substantial amount of money on a piece of hardware and you should expect it to work out of the box.

Hopefully it won't be the dark days of RROD for people but we'll see when people get it.

Probably a storm in a teacup. #32

PS4 is a utopian paradise while the Xbox One is a dystopian nightmare.

@Dragonknight "There are only certain types of people who want to buy chemical weapons. Comparing gamers to them in any way, whether it be tolerance or something else, is still comparing gamers to evil and twisted people."

We'll agree to disagree on that but there is one thing that chemical weapons' customers can be happy about and it's that they actually get what they pay for whereas gamers have to pay out more money for add-ons, DLC etc.

Interesting blog DK but I would like to address a couple of points. Sessler's assertion with comparing chemical weapons' customers being more tolerant to the gamer fanbase is not equivalent to comparing gamers to psychopaths. There seems to be an incredible lack of self-control which is baffling considering that the average age of gamers is 30.

Gamers have gotten increasingly intolerant of any level of criticism that is either aimed at their hobby or at themselves an... #14

I agree with you on the premise of game journalists being entitled on getting free gear. Robert Florence made an article on that particular subject and got fired for it but it does show that there is a problem in the game journalism industry when it comes to free games and free hardware etc.

One thing that I find really concerning is the rumours and possible hardware faults on both consoles. If it is true that they've only been shown PS4 footage at controlled Sony events;... #16

It's possible that publishers were told not to follow through with their DRM practices after the Xbox One DRM bombed and Microsoft's share price dropped. It makes a lot of sense that both Sony and Microsoft were exploring this option because it wouldn't make any sense for multi-platform games to have DRM in one console and none on the next.

It's really strange. A couple of game journos are freaking out quite a bit and there may be something going on. Sessler... #26.1

Oh Kotaku.

Your faux outrage does nothing for me. #7

Yeah. It could be nice but I'd be happier if they could just nail 60 fps 1080p on my telly first.

One thing is for certain that the headset is not going to be cheap. #3.2

Would've sold far more if it was released earlier on the Wii U. #16

Oh dear. A lot of people won't be happy by that prospect. #3

I dunno. I think any of the the big 3 would happily take a sales rate of twenty million over four years right now.

Of course, it'd be nice to surpass that. #10.1.1

"For starters, in order to make the comparison to the throw away Move game, they would have had to CONTINUE to support the Move."

Which they did until they realised it was silly considering that the Wii had the whole "motion control" thing down.

"Ubisoft gave Wii U a shot and it didn't work out and now they're diminishing support"

Zombie U sold 500K copies for about 3.5 million Wii U owners. It's a pr... #4.1.1

"Because yeah, all those things you listed make a good game."

What makes a game "good" is merely subjective to the person that is playing it. I was making a point to show how the PC and the PS4/Xbox One aren't comparable in terms of the features that the PC can offer.

"You PC gamers always make me laugh, you seem to have completely forgotten what videogames are about or why you started in the first place,"

All of your expectations are out of whack.

Adjust accordingly.

The "next-gen" consoles will also probably lack the following features such as vegetation physics, dynamic water caustics, particle/cloud/fog shadows, tessellation, pixel accurate´╗┐ displacement mapping, 2x higher texture resolution,hdao, hbao, parallax oclussion mapping, tessellation, volumetric clouds, volumetric fog, vsync simple ,double or triple buffer which are already available on... #20

I think that publishers in general have double standards when it comes to consoles that don't sell out the gate.
Quote from Ubisoft's CEO Yves Guillemot "We must find a way to ensure the creativity of those games could have a big enough audience," he says. "We hope it will take off. At the moment, we've said 'let's do through Christmas and see where we are from there.' to explain the reasoning behind Rayman Legends becoming multi-platform.
