I think everything is bad about this.
This is so much worse than ever imagined….
Wtach_Dogs is on PS3 and 360 too.
Yes, thank you God for putting a date down for an already announced video game!!!
The WiiU proves you should wait before selling a launch console back too. The number of people who I read on this and other blogs cursing Nintendo because they sold their WiiU over the summer and it’s now getting great games. I mean, seriously people, did you really think Nintendo(or any company) would just give up……..
…….Well, besides Sega.
Well it’s never going to be 100%.
Yeah, and now look at it, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, and Metal Gear all went to Xbox brand now. It keeps 3rd party Devs multiplat.
I hope, like last gen, the X1 and PS4 sell identical numbers. It sucked when the PS2 dominated sales, and developers left Sega and Nintendo because Sony has 3x the market.
Yo Forza is the jam, and this review makes it seem Forza 5 is going to be outstanding.
The main reason I’m getting the X1 at launch over the PS4 is because A) I’m impulsive to a flaw, B) lots of my friends are big Xbox fans and I know they are getting the X1 over Playstation, and C) Forza is one of my top franchises, and sports games last gen seemed to run better on 360 IMO.
But since I mentioned sports, I know its a thing to make fun of MS for their love of sports in their announcements, but I’m one of the few people that love sports. I’m from a huge sports city(Philadelphia), and both sides of my family are full of sports fans. The fact that I can be playing a video game and snap into a live feed of a NHL, NFL, MLB, EPL, etc… game is something that, for me, seems revolutionary.
I used the same gif I use on SBNation sights. Maybe because I posted it at basically 12:00, it got borked with all the traffic influx.
I didn’t just mean the video review, I just meant all the work with all the launch stuff. It was obviously hell for these people the past few weeks, and the fact that all this stuff is pretty damn neat is a testament to how awesome the staff here is.
and even if it did, who cares about television in 2013?
A lot of people actually still do. More people in the US own cable than own cars. And while I agree with the television part with shows, the TV does a lot more than shows. Billions of people need TV and cable for sports, for example. So yeah, obviously, there are lots of tech savvy people who don’t watch shows on their TV’s or watch sports, but thats not the focus of the X1, it doesn’t cater to the gamer, it caters to the everyman too.
OK, watched the review, and like the PS4 review, extremely well done. Lets give a nice golf clap to the Polygon/Verge crew for all the awesome work they’ve done the past few weeks folks.
Odd, it still seems to work on my screen. It’s Ron Paul “It’s Happening” gif.
The review makes it seem like the .5 bump is from integration of newer features. The PS4 is a pure gaming machine, which is fine, but the X1 can do more than game, and it can still game very well.
One of the best shows around.
This gen probably just mean in recent memory.
Well, now I understand why it was on Spikes GotY list. The early reviews are killing it.
Rayman is a tad different. That was more on-rails, you could really just move forward, like New Super Mario. This is more of a 3D platformer.
On the live stream last wednesday they basically said Ryse was meh. They didn’t go into much detail obviously, but it seemed like the Xbox one’s Killzone. Pretty, but mediocre gameplay.
A loli, gothic, Russian, named Marie Rose?
like, none of those things go together…
If anyone cares, Amazon has extra launch consols available, probably have to act fast though.
Kotaku never gives scores, and their reviews are bassed on if they would recommend a game/system to someone that day.
A+++ work guys. Looks like lots of intense effort went into this, and I assume the X1 version will be about the same.
None of those game are system sellers. The best exclusive I see on that list is probably MLB the Show, and I’m willing to bet a majority of Polygoners arent diehard baseball fans. If you know you like the Sony exclusive devs, then you shouldn’t be worried, but for someone that is still trying to decide on which system, the lack of announced games might turn people towards Xbox, where they at least announced games like Halo title and Titanfall.
