Not surprised, but it still sucks.. I am really more bummed that I won’t be able to carry over my 50+ XBLA/Games on Demand games.
So, it says “all new characters, in a new world…” Does that mean that they are scrapping the Modern Warfare storyline? That got so ridiculous that trying to ever account for any of it would make for a really dumb story.
“HD rumble…” Hey guys, I am going to lunch, I am going to pick up an HD burger and fries.. Y’all want anything??
- Seriously though, at the end of the day, all that matters to me is the offset sticks. I am seriously considering starting off with Sony this generation (I have always been an Xbox guy), but not having offset sticks on the PS4 REALLY bothers me.
I actually heard him speak about this at SXSW this year, and I think you might be misinterpreting what he is trying to say. He is not saying that we should standardize the way games are developed, just the language used to describe those techniques.
Cool, thanks for the info.
This is a joke, right?
Why does an online pass bother everyone so much? Do you all buy your games used or just hate punching in the codes or what? I think people just REALLY want to hate EA (something I also don’t understand) and this is just something to latch on to.
So, how does this work, exactly? Do you turn your head to aim the gun or does your head turn independent of the targeting reticle?
I was thinking about getting this for the WiiU.. It would be cool if they allowed you to use some of your spy/merc tools with the tablet.
Hmmm.. No consoles listed. I assume it will be on EVERYTHING, but I am wondering how the next-gen/WiiU versions will differ.
I was really just kidding…
A couple of things… I wonder if this confirms anything about when the next-gen consoles will release? Surely they will want their new game to come out along side the new consoles. Either way, I am going to wait to play it on PS4/720. Also, I hope they sell a “premium” edition of the game. I know this will be a game I want all of the DLC for and I would much rather just get everything in the box.
Could be a fun game, but I probably won’t pay $4.99 to find out. If they had just made one “movie” free, they might have at least gotten me to be another one. This way, I probably won’t give them any money.
Well, I am glad that they are embracing people buying games digitally from them, but it really highlights the need for a universal Nintendo Identity that carries all of your purchases. As of now, if you lose your Nintendo console, you are pretty much S.O.L.
I wonder if they are planning on licensing this stuff out? If they made it easy to put into games (Speed Trees, but for water), it would be cool to see. Even if it wasn’t being used for gameplay purposes (although that would be cool), it would certainly make games more immersive.
We are not talking about hardware limitations here… The problems indie developers faced with the 360 were almost all related to Microsoft’s policies. Why would they continue to give indie developers so much grief on the 360 if they are planning to welcome them with open arms on their next console? I think they have already burned a lot of bridges.
That is a pretty cynical perspective. Do you think all marketing is just pure manipulation? I took it more as them trying to say “we are making a gaming console, first and foremost.” They backed that sentiment up by showing lots of games, making a point to show that they are supporting indies, and revealing/building hardware that is very friendly to developers. Knowing how much difficulty developers had with the PS3, they decided to go with a more PC-like infrastructure. They also made the choice to put even more RAM into it than was originally expected. That decision will ultimately make the console more expensive to manufacture, and virtually the only payoff to having that RAM will be for games. Also, don’t think that I am a Sony fanboy or something. I barely use my PS3, but with everything I have seen so far about the next Xbox (which is admittedly not much) versus what I KNOW about PS4, I am feeling like I might have to go with Sony this time, at least starting off (I know I will eventually get both).
That would be a hard swing from what Microsoft is doing with the 360. They are notoriously difficult to deal with.
Sony spent the majority of their conference talking about games. The social stuff doesn’t really matter to me one way or another, but at least it is there to enhance and support the system as a gaming console. I don’t remember them talking much about multimedia stuff. I mean, I want it to have Netflix, HBO Go, etc., but that is not what I am coming to these systems for.
I have been an Xbox guy for the last two generations, but after everything leading up to this announcement, I am really leaning towards getting a PS4, at least to start. Six months ago I would have told you that I would be getting the next Xbox first, without a doubt, but now they have to win me over. All of the rumors leading up to this (greater focus on Kinect, Xbox as an all-in-one media device, etc.) have only made me less excited. While the Playstation 4 doesn’t look perfect, I really like the fact that they seem really focused on what I care about most with these systems: games. I am also really impressed by how they seem to be catering to indies. The ball is in your court now, Microsoft.
Also, no WiiU.
The more interesting part is that, for now, it is not listed as a next-gen title. Surely they will put it out on the new consoles, even if it is just the same game with better textures.
I don’t know how, but they game flew completely under the radar for me.. Looks cool.
I expect them to lean more heavily on XCOM: Enemy Unknown, considering how successful it was.
Came here hoping to see a bunch of people bashing MLP and all of the “Bronies” defending it… You guys really disappointed me!
