Well now, you might want to keep that to yourself Mr. Rubin.
Yeah, updates on PS3 are BAD. I had a PS3 for about a year or so, and it was a nightmare. I didn’t have PS+ (where you could auto-download updates). Good to hear they’re building it in.
Yeah, the always-online stuff only bothers me to the extent that it’s used to babysit my used games. My 360 is “always online” as it is (meaning it’s plugged into the internet 24/7).
New to PS4.
I’ll just leave this here: http://www.polygon.com/forums/windows/2013/6/12/4422678/pc-gaming-is-not-for-everyone
Well, I still pay for Xbox Live. Doesn’t mean I’m happy about it.
You will do just fine. I played very few console games before the OG Xbox, and while I first preferred the PC controls, I now prefer a controller.
I didn’t say that Steam set pricing, only that their pricing was more competitive. If Atari will accept $7 on Steam, then why not on Games on Demand?
Nailed it, though really, you didn’t need to call his thinking idiotic. Play nice kids.
Yeah, agreed. It looks like a jenky version of Kinect (which is, in itself jenky).
I have a Kinect, and the microphone array is great stuff. Yes, I realize the system is not lip-reading .
I LOL’D at the “True skill” comment too. Reminds me of something the trenchcoat-sporting nerd from Grandma’s Boy might say.
Yeah, the PS3 is basically a PC (not a good thing). The 360 has one (or maybe two) system updates a year, and game updates are usually small and quick (<1 minute).
Totally agree. If you’re reasonably competent, you can definitely build your own PC for a reasonable amount of money. Particularly if you’re carrying over your case, monitor, keyboard, mouse, TV cards, etc.
My point regarding expense, was that PCs hardware doesn’t stand the test of time like consoles do. A PC built in November 2005 (when the 360 was released) would either not play most current PC games or play them poorly (framerate issues, poor visual quality, etc.).
Well, yes and no. While I do have a reasonably current gaming PC, it’s more of a holdover from when I had more money (read: before I had kids). I’ve found our netbook works perfectly fine for most stuff I have to do on a computer.
I doubt I’ll be upgrading my gaming PC given that our 360 works well for most things we would have otherwise used the PC for (gaming, streaming music and video, etc.). Also, since leaving college, I don’t use my PC for typing reports, Mathematica, etc, so I can no longer use that justification. :)
Yeah, Microsoft’s Games on Demand is shit. I’ve bought exactly one game from them (a $19.99 copy of Hitman: Absolution a few months back). I think they’re trying to buy my next-gen loyalty (not happening).
