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.

I wonder if the modding communities for Bethesda games feel like that? #1.2

Because the average gamer/fifa/COD player don't care about price. A lot of FIFA players I met have active clubs that they would like to carry over to the next Xbox iteration which is were all their friends are.

Microsoft know that Fifa draws a lot of people in. EA also know that the microtransactions that take place in their game due to ULtimate Team and buying card packs will easily refund any loss they would take from selling it separately.

It's a... #4.1.1

It's...genius.

People in Europe love Fifa. I really didn't care much for Fifa 13 but I did enjoy playing with my online pro. Would it be enough for me to go out and purchase a Xbox One? I dunno. It's something to chew over I guess. #4

@darkride66 "while I agree that Metro is guilty of sensationalism, the fact that she received these threats are not in question."

Of course not. When the DA2 thing happened, even I heard about it and I wasn't even connected to any gaming website until I joined N4G. I didn't even think it was that bad. The story had some interesting ideas and had a little more applicability than the usual Bioware archetypical story. It wasn't perfect by any means but ther... #30.1.1

@Kryptix "The games that Sony gave after the online blackout were actually yours to keep forever. So why did you even bring up PS Plus? Anyway, you don't own the movies in Netflix but that doesn't stop people from renewing their subscriptions and enjoying those "rented" movies."

Sorry. That was my mistake because a month of PS+ was offered along with the free (old) games as paltry compensation to the customers.

Hmm. The original article that this is based on this speaks a different story.

@silvery "Last time I checked you have to buy the same for PC, peripherals on PC cost money and games on PC cost money just like they do on a console. There are free games on both a PC and consoles as well."

I was measuring how much money that you'd save by not buying a console. You can easily play most games on a PC with the keyboard/mouse that is provided with it. If you wish to upgrade your keyboard/mouse; you can at a cheap, affordable price as there are mic... #18.3.1

Uh. Was there a problem with the video upload? I saw some screen-tearing with it and I'm wondering if it's the game or the video itself? Not saying that the rating isn't representative of the game's quality. I like games that can express good stories. #1

@PrimeGrime "I know for fact it will match close to PC, I never said it would surpass them, nothing can surpass a PC because PC components are being updated monthly almost. Consoles go through cycles."

Yep. That's what consoles are. It's for casual plug in and play experiences. That's it. They aren't meant to go against PCs.

@TongkatAli "MacDonagh the Vita has plenty of games. Its the memory card prices that are giving it a hard time."

The Vita does have plenty of games. Just not many good ones. The memory card prices also don't help one bit.

I imagine that these images were taken from a running video yes?

You can stop and analyse anything long enough to spot problems with any sort of visual media like games or films. Nothing is perfect.

Then again, I have no little to no interest in Ryse. #23

That game will look better on PC though because the PC has a lot more to work with than the "next-gen" consoles. Sure you can go on about how consoles will streamline the process and squeeze out more efficiency but I sincerely doubt that it could possibly match PC at this point.

I mean people can disagree all they like but the truth is the truth. #18.1.2

@iamnsuperman It's not just the price drop that helped Nintendo. Sony also shot themselves in the foot with the conception of the Vita. The price, the lack of games, (which is still true now!) expensive proprietary memory cards have also helped the 3DS to curbstomp the PS Vita into dust.

Not to mention Nintendo released big hitters while the only game that I want on the Vita is Persona 4. #2.1.4

@_FantasmA_ "Stop bringing up the hacking incident. Not everyone was affected and if you can buy PSN cards, why would you use your credit card?"

Because there was an option to? A lot of people were affected by that incident and Sony knowingly ignored holes in their security infrastructure that allowed for the mass stealing of their customers user logins and credit card details. That's a fact and lest we forget the past; we are doomed to repeat it.

I think Microsoft really screwed it up very badly. From where I'm sitting, the Xbox One didn't have a very clear vision in mind and even the people in the company didn't know what the damned thing was supposed to be. Without a clear objective of what the Xbox One was supposed to represent; it resulted in it being unpalatable to the wider public and unsellable because of the massive confusion and distrust that it brought forth. That isn't even taking into account of their invol... #6.1.1

Hey. Remember that time that Sony shutdown the PSN servers and lost the bank details of their customers?

Sure they may not rape your wallet but they will sodomise your bank account if you're not careful. All companies want to rape your wallet. Don't act like Sony or any other company don't do it or are somehow "above" such behaviour. These are corporations we are talking about here. Not something that is worthy of worship or defending. #7.1

I think that the shareholders probably held more sway at Microsoft than the gamers to be honest. What's more likely? The fact that gamers raged out on twitter with their hashtags and on forums or the 1% drop on stock price a full day and a half before the first hashtag of dissent even happened?

In all honesty, they truly messed up their first conference. They were so vague on what the system could deliver to gamers that it was no surprise that everybody threw their toys o... #6

I've recently acquired a PC that is "more powerful" than either of the upcoming next-gen consoles and can attest to the fact that the deals on Steam or GOG are far superior to the deals that you can get currently on the current consoles and possibly the next gen.

However, there is one advantage that the consoles has over the PCs is that they aren't latched down by the various processes that a PC has. The OS for a PC would be much more complicated than the OS... #4.1
