The Greatness Bundle finally arrives!
Who didn't see this one comin? I wonder if Xbox will respond eventually with a windows tablet discount voucher or bundle with one.
Bout time Vita gets the adverts it deserves and doubled with the commercial success of PS4 should be a real rush for Vita right now. Thank you Sony for hearing our cries from this earthly realm smight thee with greatness.

Edit:
I was jokin but really not a bad idea for X1.

What Vita really needed is people to really see it. It needs more exposure and this could really get more Vita's out in the wild. There so many people missing out on Vita, it's not funny. I haven't played a more perfect handheld in my life! I <3 Vita.

Sony Patents To Prevent You From In-Game Harassment By Reading Your Emotions

A new patent recently published by Sony wants to gather biometric data of gamers to track whether one is being harassed using AI tools.

Profchaos24d ago (Edited 24d ago )

I hope this is one of those patents that never comes to fruition.

I already dislike the fact you can pay a significant amount for a online service buy associated games and content on said service and get banned from that service over potentially a misunderstanding the bans are already handed out for flimsy reasons

I'd rather see money invested in a ban that simply removes the offensive players ability to communicate with unknown players allow them to continue party chats with friends but not with Joe blow on cod.

Agreed. Blizzard recently banned a college Overwatch 2 player who's dependent for saying "shit." Pretty harsh.

Profchaos23d ago (Edited 23d ago )

How rediculas really. You can't say a word that's allowed in most PG films and prime time TV but the game is based around killing the enemy team using guns, explosives etc.

It's just backwards.

What your talking about is called block list

In 2006 a spaceship dropped of the playstation 3/xbox 360 i say that that generation was the last great gen with game functions/tech that has yet to comeback

Anyhow the playstation 3 if you block listed a id they could not talk to you in chatroom with either text or voice. But that was pre mind fucked 2018 when people were more human than sheep.

But hey gta 6 is coming out billion dollar budget without a single player custom character creator and without singeplayer coop off/online something saints row 1-3 had on the xbox 360.

Take my social security and bank account numbers too! Here’s a picture of my wife and our address.

Cmon where's the pictures of your children. Don't hold out on them.

At this rate I feel Sony will eventually sell a room to play games in it where they can monitor your every breath

jambola24d ago

I genuinely get a bit worried sometimes when a friend says something that could be offensive In a party
Because I have no trouble believing some bans would happen when in a private party for saying something wrong

I want them to censor erotic content by measuring my groin temperature so i dont get too distracted while playing black ops 2.

Popsicle24d ago

Terrible idea. Not only do I not consent to providing my biometric data, the potential for mishandling biometric data is almost a certainty. Positive stress and negative stress can produce similar changes in biometrics. Interpreting the precise emotion a person is feeling is not only invasive but could be easily misconstrued. I hope this never comes to fruition.

Sony Could Increase Your Game's Difficulty If It Sees You Complain About It

Sony has recently published a new patent that wants to dynamically handle the games' difficulty and gameplay based on the player's emotions.

jznrpg25d ago

This is something I might use. Sometimes I play some good games but they don’t have difficulty option and are a little too easy.

Profchaos24d ago

Souls games will be like that players struggling make it harder

PassNextquestion24d ago (Edited 24d ago )

I think if used correctly it could work well

jambola24d ago

cool idea
cool idea for horror games especially
the way it's explained here sounds like it could never be forced hopefully, so that's ok with me

Please do not put Destiny’s monetization into Sony’s first party games. The monetization is what’s driving players away from Destiny.
