Yeah loot boxes/ microtransactions are at the top for me! GAAS is another one or the push to try and make these fit into AAA games!

DLC when done right a la Witcher 3, HZD etc is fine but stripping a game down to then sell it back in pieces is garbage! I just don't support games that use these so that works for me as there's so many that still do it right!

I do miss local multiplayer though! Also I haven't had any issues since RRD. Day one PS3 Slim performed great as do my day one PS4 and Pro!

Yeah, PS4s and later model PS3s have thankfully been a lot sturdier.

Free to play price models and game mechanics in full priced reased (along with season passes and everything else) is the bane of our industry right now. If this is allowed to continue they're going to start charging subscriptions on a game to game basis along with everything else.

Sony just needs to up its resolution and framerate and it'll be quite the service, still don't like streaming though so doesn't really matter to me.

Why is Xbox GamePass on this? Not a streaming service.

CaptainCook1388d ago

Xcloud will be included with Xbox Game Pass this year

RazzerRedux1388d ago

And they announced that.....when?

CaptainCook1388d ago (Edited 1388d ago )

Here's the link from the engineers themselves talking about Xcloud at Xbox London Event 2019.

"There's 2 things.. We are going to give you the games you own from the cloud or the games you've purchased in the future, and we will bring Game streaming to Xbox Game Pass so you are Free to discover and play anywhere and everywhere"


SpaceRanger1388d ago

Once again, why is Xbox GamePass on this? Your comment only further proves my point.

RazzerRedux1388d ago


Thanks. I missed that announcement obviously.

Neither is Uplay or Origin. "Journalism"

2pacalypsenow1388d ago (Edited 1388d ago )

The only game streaming services are PS Now, Stadia and GeForce Now.

Xbox Game pass, Uplay plus and Origin aren’t streaming.

Exvalos1391d ago

Omfg lmao!!!!! Never a more perfect time to say that

badz1491391d ago

Father__Merrin1391d ago

these cretins are all over ebay you search for a game key and something cheap comes up once you click on the post its actually not a game key but rather access to a account. theres no option on ebay to report them

arkard1391d ago (Edited 1391d ago )

Should be, what does not participate in digital sales (unless something changed im unaware of) so a sale like that is against there terms and conditions

I was wrong, they do allow digital items now.

But I checked and there is still a reporting tool on the mobile website at least. You have to scroll pretty far down to get to it though

nucky641391d ago

not sure about that. i used to sell digital codes from blu ray movies i bought. i never used them so it seemed like a waste. i usually put them up for sale for a third of what the entire movie package cost me. the last time i tried to do this (around 2 months ago) i get message that trying to sell digital copies isn't allowed.

nucky641391d ago

so true. i was always curious as to how people were allowed to do that. now i know - they aren't supposed to.

Cyb3r1391d ago

Some websites sell accounts too Im surprised that noting is being done about this

JackBNimble1391d ago

And they're all stolen accounts

1391d ago
JackBNimble1391d ago

Why are they calling this trading accounts, this is plain and simply stealing.

Boondocksaints1391d ago

I think it’s hilarious
