It’s more like if Sony only let you run the Playstation App on Sony phones and tablets, though even that’s a poor analogy.
Then use a real life example, there’s no Playstation App for the Vaio Tap 11 but there will be Xbox OneSmartGlass and there already is Xbox 360 SmartGlass…
Forget them, I just want to see my next task. What can I do to make this zoo better, the visitors happier and the animals healthier? For a game with tycoon in the title, it’s got a good heart
Why do I feel like you didn’t say “forget them” when your co-workers wanted to play another title…
I still have hope for Ryse being an 8.
From here? They way they’ve been talking about it?? Lmfao.
The only thing that the review for Ryse and the number 8 will have in common is that 4 will be a common multiple.
It doesn’t help that your sluggish mount doesn’t move at anything faster than a lumber unless its agility has been significantly upgraded.
So it’s RPG-like?
Why is the assumption here that Sony has abandoned media applications for the PS4? Why isn’t this worded in a manner that said it was missing but may be remedied with a patch at a later date?
To be completely honest, I don’t even know what to feel here. The narrative Sony has pushed to the blogosphere was that this console’s first priority is gaming. Every move they’ve made seems to carry that narrative, for better or worse. What I gathered from the review is basically how I feel about it: If you base your narrative on gaming but gaming comes up a little short, then it puts a damper on your experience.
Those of us who pre-ordered either system or going to deal with the penalty for being an early adapter. With Sony’s push to make everyone know that the PS4 is gaming focused, the penalty was going to be on non-gaming items. If Sony was serious about having the Camera included at one point in time, it’s great that they thought better of it because the experience looks terrible so far (and I don’t think that many of us mind). Media playback options being limited/cut out makes sense too, but you’re right, that will probably be patched. That’s just the penalty for early access but you have to acknowledge it in the review.
Related: The Xbox One is going to be graded on my more levels in reviews and I’d be shocked if it got higher than a 7 from this site.
That’s why this isn’t a winner/loser scenario. Each console’s strengths are so different, that it really depends on the individual consumer to decide what would benefit them the most.
This is where we differ, although we probably shouldn’t. Let me explain, the kinect is doing a lot more then just voice processing this time around. The heartbeat sensor, facial recognition, skeletal tracking, being able to tell who is holding a controller that is being passed around… that’s a differentiator. Much in the same vein having a user replaceable hard drive, having standard audio inputs for the mic and choosing to go with bluetooth for the controller is in my book. It changes the way you approach the systems.
Yea, the systems play the same titles, but not in the same way. There’s definite winner/loser scenarios here simply because there’s something else to compare to. By definition, the Kinect in the Xbox One isn’t an extra feature, it’s just a feature and it’s integrated on a system level. With respect to the PlayStation Camera, it’s starting off in an “also-ran” capacity and that’s not good thing for it’s development.
Think about it on a practical level, both consoles are going to work to flesh the voice command features out. Sony will work to get the API’s together so that the voice commands work properly for third party apps. Microsoft already has this in place so they will work on Cortana. That’s a big difference.
Since when has a gimmick like voice commands been important to gamers?
There was a time where vibration in a controller was gimmick, an add on or even a reserved for a specialty controller (I mean dual-shock is in the name of the controller for goodness sake). If you don’t have the vision for something, how do we as gamers ever advance?
If I pay for something, it should always work. The plight of a multi-billion dollar company isn’t exactly my concern. They just need to make it work.
There’s no way that you are serious about this, right?
Paying for a service that still has ads sounds like a great use of money.
then pay for the service? The person asked if you can listen without subscribing, which you can. The service, Xbox Music Pass, has it’s own subscription which has no ads.
All excellent points. I think, in addition, they should add support for third party tracking apps such as the Withings activity tracker and their scale
That gives me an idea, or I guess a question: I Wonder how will Cortana integrate with all of this?
Dancing is not my thing, unless I’m at a wedding and have reached the point of inebriation in which any bonkers activity seems reasonable.
Sir, I agree with your viewpoints and would like to subscribe to your newsletter. Seriously though, the first time I saw kinect games like this, I wondered who in their right, sober mind would buy this…
