Saying MS had the "balls" to say it is just distracting from the fact that it was idiotic to do it.

MS might as well have started off that announcement with "Hi, we're Microsoft and welcome to Jackass" before hopping into a dumpster as it rolls down a hill. #22.1.2

That's pretty lousy. Only a third of them are retail games.

Of the 34 retail games I own, most of which are exclusive, only six are on that list. Four are Gears games.

Was hoping for Witcher II, Alan Wake, and Splinter Cell Conviction. #19

I've almost got the platinum but haven't even played online. Being connect to PSN gets you some challenges during races that compare you to other players, but as far as single player content goes, there is plenty to play, especially if you get the DLC. #15.2

Funny guy. I love the constant chest beating over exclusives, as if anyone can't see that games release outside of the fall too.

But don't worry, Aaron. I'll buy an Xbox. Dell is gonna sell it on Black Friday with two controllers, Fallout 4, and Gears for $300. If you're practically giving it away, I'll buy one just to experience the rich story in probably the most anticipated game of the year and the greatest Halo OF ALL TIME! #31

I love how so many people have dying batteries in their controllers.

Gotta love the ability to easily replace them, even though it's not really an issue, in a worn out broken down controller. #29

It's dumb that people cried so much about a dev pretending not to give us a bunch of extra stuff, when there are so many worse practices out there, like retailer exclusive pre-order bonuses.

I would have liked to get the game early. At least it sounds like we get an extra skin or whatever it was. #13

It's a shame... in gaming communities, people like us are the first to stick up for a developer's vision, and don't want it to be compromised by an out of touch publisher, or allowing it to be dumbed down.

Yet the second it's something we don't like, it's "lazy" or "not worth it", and we complain when something like a single player campaign isn't tacked on to tick a box for the sake of appealing to some demographic that isn'... #89

"So everybody that doesn't have a stable enough connection the hell with them!?"

It's not fair.

It's an awful trend with games lately. I refuse to support a developer that doesn't cater to absolutely everyone. There are so many people being left out nowadays... those with poor internet, those without the console, those without electricity... it's disgraceful. #3.1.7

"the amount of big, blockbuster, exclusive titles that you can get this holiday on Xbox is just stunning. I mean, it’s really amazing"

It's Halo, Forza, and a timed exclusive Tomb Raider. Time to stop drinking your own Kool-aid. It's not "amazing" at all.

Some combination of Halo and Forza comes along every other year on Xbox. It's a pretty average year. The only thing special about this year is it looks better in comparison to... #37

It's silly to think otherwise. You know they had it planned before releasing GTAV. There's no reason why they would scrap it just because online is so popular.

It took over five years to make GTAV. Heists took over a year. Even GTA4's first expansion didn't release until a year after GTA4's release. Gay Tony released another six or seven months after that.

Rockstar takes their sweet time. Seeing as how it has taken this long though, I'... #5.1

Didn't they say that the combat was one of the weaker aspects of Human Revolution? That was pretty evident in the boss battles. I think that's the only reason it's being highlighted more. They already nailed the stealth. Now they're trying to make combat equally viable.

I don't see anything wrong with the pre-order deal either. It amazes me that this is the pre-order plan to generate the most hate when it's moving away from the crappier standard practi... #4

You bought the wrong game. I couldn't even get through the demo of Thief. Human Revolution is fantastic. Holds up to the original well. #3.1

This is kind of my point. This looks less like those trends you're describing, and more like a step in the right direction.

All this stuff could have been stuff they charged for. Bundle all this stuff in a $70 or $80 version of the game. Or limit us to one option based on the store we pre-order from.

Yeah, they're making us jump through the smallest of hoops to acquire this stuff, but that's so much better than coughing up extra money for a specia... #6.2.1

And yet with all that said, it's still a big step above the usual pre-order bonuses.

Yet this is what people choose to bitch about.

Nothing's ever going to look as good as giving us everything with the game. But that's not going to happen. #6.1.2

Yeah, let's whine and cry to the guys who are not only giving us our choice of pre-order bonuses, but are giving us extra stuff in addition to that if more people pre-order.

God, I just loved it when we were stuck pre-ordering from a certain store if we wanted a specific pre-order bonus, and having to pony up an extra $20 for a "Limited Edition" to get bonuses like a soundtrack.

It is so awful to get choice and content above and beyond what we u... #6

What even gets uploaded to PSN?

All the shared stuff goes to other websites. PSN servers shouldn't affect that. #6.1

I love how you list "crazy big games" and include one you can't even remember the name of.

List padding at it's finest. #6.5.2

So, some guy contacts some other guy running a third-rate gaming website. Gaming website guy goes to support forums, sees a couple people with the same problem. Guy decides to speculate that PSN, which has millions of users is hacked, based on the fact that a few people are complaining of problems in a support forum.

Stop the presses.

Here, let me write next weeks article for you...

Anything can happen. But why is that your point?

Hypothetically, Apple can be bought out by Ouya and topple Sony and Microsoft. Anything is possible given the right series of events.

But in terms of what will realistically happen, there's nothing to suggest there will be a major shake up that will change the way things are going.

Sony is three for three after 20 or so years, and it's looking like they're going to be four for four.... #1.3.3
