There would definitely need to be some enhancements done to the F1 and F2 games to enable them to play effectively on a console, that's for sure. But it's not too say it can't be done. After all, InXile is bringing Wasteland 2 to consoles and it plays very similar to the original Fallout titles. I think the biggest hurdle for Bethesda would be found in convincing the new generation who have never known Fallout existed until F3, that the originals are worth playing despite their in...

Wow, settle down, man. It's my opinion. Doesn't mean you have to agree. But please don't personally insult me with the "[I'm] obviously no fallout-fan" statement just because you don't see eye-to-eye. And who said anything about having to be better?? I simply stated that the bar for RPGs has officially been raised. Nor did I even state that the graphics for Fallout 4 are terrible or sub-par. "In 'simple' terms," I was commenting directly on Pete...

I'm a very proud and very vocal Fallout fan (since F1), but this sounds like a huge cop-out Mr. Hines... you have no viable excuses any longer. The bar has officially been raised and set high by CD Projekt RED with Witcher 3; a game which is absolutely staggering in size and scope and graphically stunning to boot! So when I hear statements like yours, I interpret it as, "We're too lazy to spend the time and resources to build a NEW game engine and the assets which make up the eng...

Why is it that I keep seeing articles about this patch and about how it's coming THIS week, but not one specifies a release date?! C'mon CD Projekt, freaking release it already...

Got a copy for free with my GTX980, plus playing through the Witcher 3 currently... so by the time I get to it anyways, it'll be fixed(?), hopefully!

You've gotta be kidding me with a comment like that... let's put things into perspective. Witcher 3 is a massive world - a scope the likes of which have never been achieved in a game before and it was made so by a team less than half the size of Bethesda's which worked on Skyrim. Skyrim was nearly unplayable for the first six months after its release for an enormous amount of fans, specifically on the PS3; saved games were corrupted, freezing/crashing were a common element and ove...

Why does the time in which they opened preorders matter??

I'm curious to find out more information about this Pipboy model. It's a completely new design & layout, not something we've seen in previous Fallout games. I'm also curious to find out where it fits into Fallout universe and why we haven't seen it before. It begs the question as to whether this particular Vault was a special one given access to secret RobCo prototype technology? It has been made clear in past Fallout games that each Vault was given experimental techno...

@Esemce - I could've swore I read that NVidia had no plans to release a GTX 980ti... Their answer to that was the Titan X. But I could be wrong. I was also trying to hold out as long as possible for the ti or the 8gb version of the 980. I just had to cave for W3.

Edit: Yeah, you're right and the GTX 980ti, only thing is NVidia appears to have moved its release to September now bc of the Asus 20th Anniversary Gold Edition...

Just picked up an EVGA GTX 980 SC specifically for this game. I did not want to settle for anything less, but it also felt like the right time to sell off my beloved MSI GTX 770 Lightning and upgrade. The purchase promo for these new cards makes it worth it enough since you get a free digital copy of both Witcher 3 and Batman: Arkham Knight. I've also had the Witcher 3 CE preordered since it was announced! It's my most anticipated game this year.

I don't know about you guys, but I would happily purchase multiple copies of this game for no reason other than to show my support to CD Projekt RED, and because I have 100% unwavering confidence in their abilities to deliver one of the most robust, ground-breaking RPG experiences ever. I will be getting married four days after this releases, and believe me, the thought has actually crossed my mind multiple times that I might have to miss my own wedding for this experience... haha - this ...

I might be in the minority here, but what's with the grey?? I think they missed the mark with this one, and it just looks... bland, to me. Compare this to the MGS V: The Phantom Pain PS4 releasing in Japan, and tell me you don't agree.

If you can divert your attention away from the ongoing drama of the Kojima/Konami parting, just think for a moment: it would NOT surprise me in the least if Sony and/or Microsoft haven't already reached out to Kojima in some way, shape or form to try and woo him to their side. Only time will tell, but I have a feeling that his parting with Konami will only benefit us gamers.

Wow... people have nothing better to do than start a petition to complain about a game delayed no more than three weeks? The game will be OUT before the petition has the opportunity to do a thing. Even if the time frame was greater, what purpose does it serve? In the end, you're getting an improved product. And for the most part, that's what the majority of people want; the others are the people signing this pointless petition.

This group must be run by a bunch of 5 year olds... A. They plan to shutdown Xbox Live! "forever"?? -- C'mon. There's a reason why corporations have redundancies in place. B. Really? Out of ALL of the horrendous, money-grubbing corporations in existence -- Microsoft is your target?? Sure, ignore the atrocities carried out by the private para-military group Academi (formerly Blackwater) or Halliburton (facilitators of the steady destruction of Earth) or Sallie Mae (masters o...

This is Capcom getting down on their knees to give their once lofty fanbase a nice healthy dose of lip service before irreversibly slipping into the black hole of bankruptcy. Don't get me wrong, I love me some classic RE, but let's be honest here and acknowledge just what this REALLY is before we start pissing ourselves with excitement. This is a company that has gone from powerhouse studio/publisher to hollowed out shell of its former self in a matter of only 10 years, as it slowly c...

Yeah, Sony sort of shot themselves in the foot with the PS3's hardware/architecture. They touted that their cell tech would be the next gen of processing, but instead revealed itself to be incredibly cumbersome in terms of coding and in turn drove up development time, costs, etc. Now they're truly paying for it imo because, like you said, they'd have to create additional hardware to emulate the PS3s architecture, and we all know Sony hasn't the faintest interest in entertainin...

Exactly, that would be nice! Problem is this: The PS3, an 8yr old system, is still too much to warrant purchasing new (@$100, I'd pick it up in an instant!), and the PS4 just doesn't have much content right now -- plain and simple -- to justify a $400 purchase. I'm the consumer that WANTS to purchase a system, but feels like I'm stuck in this weird grey area between the two systems. This grey area could evaporate if they allowed for BC -- either via disc or via digital downloa...
