This one is presumably for anyone who decided to go to sleep and wake up to a roundup of the bare essentials? :D
we all know there is no such thing as a wednesday gaming thread. this can be the TRUE and ONLY Thursday gaming thread
still got loads of games to catch up on. going to be 3-4 years before i buy one.
hopefully with this announced the price of ps3s will come down too incase mine conks out
Not for me. My Xbox does everything I need it to; plays some games, but mostly acts as a powerful entertainment hub. I stream moves from it and watch TV on it. That's it's main function. New games and more powerful graphics aren't going to make me want to buy it.
Intersting how they didn't show the console though; the controller looks miles better than the shitty 20 year old DualShock/DualAnaolgue. Nice Xbox360 curves on it, finally. Not convinced by the Vita compatibility; unless that also works with other tablets, like SmartGlass.
No mention of Bluray either, unless I'm mistaken. Maybe a drive-less console is on the cards?
some of the games announced have confirmed they are on disc.. which i assume is blu ray
shouldn't be called the Playstation 4. Should've been "the Playstation".
hip for the kids innit
they'll be saving that gem for the Playstation 44. I should probably trademark that one
and only skimmed Eurogamer's liveblog thing for a bit, but it reads like every other Playstation launch - full of ridiculous buzz words that won't be lived up to. Gave up well before the games were shown.
I WANT TO TALK ABOUT HOW HARD DKCR IS GODDAMNIT
There's often 3 football threads floating about at the same time. May as well do the same with videogames.
(I'll probably not be participating as I've had no time for gaming this week).
because most of my gaming is single player games done offline. Didn't think that insulting possible customers was really the done thing, but fair play to him.
Been stuck on the same level for a couple of years now. Fucking insanely difficult.
So, a pause button then?
I've only just noticed. That feels...wrong.
you dont have to save, then shut down, then boot back up and load the save. You just press the button and it saves the game in that exact state for when you switch it back on again.
big fan of this, having to either leave your console turned on and paused or lose a load of progress when you have to go do something else but aren't near a save point is pretty annoying
this journalist hasn't done their homework at all
this article is a joke
Dec 1994 (in Japan, 1995 everywhere else)
or maybe have the memory of a child
I mean the PS1 looks like it comes from an episode of Buck Rodgers or something. It looks more dated than the Megadrive.
Why did no-one mention it before?
in which case I misread what you were getting at
that controller is from like 97 or 98 or something
so its not the original playstation package/set-up in the picture
it probably isn't even one of those original models that all broke and had to be replaced at Sony's expense like i had either
If you're going to be anal at least be consistent
the slim on is just beside it for company
Same with a new xbox.
They can sing and dance about it all they want but until I find out the prices of them, I can't decide anything.
So hot for Watch Dogs. Too early to predict it as PS4's first 10/10 game? Looks almost too good to be true.
