Goddam did I love, nay, adored my PS2. I should go track down that's still in the box brand new.
I don't like these rumors of it needing to "phone home" everytime you play. If internet is out, games are one of the few ways to amuse yourself. I don't need to play multiplayer all the time.
Yeah, that is awful. I hope they come to their senses or sales are shit. I can't play games because I don't have internet? Fuck you.
half an hour until the show starts.
I didnt watch the press conference but they had a 2 hour even and DIDNT SHOW A CONSOLE? What kind of shit is that?
Games so far:
I like the controller design. The touch pad is nice and out of the way.
I don't like the lack of physical disc backwards compatibility. Beyond that, I like it.
I knew they weren't going to show the console. The are hedging their bets for E3. They should announce the price and show off the actual machine there. Out of all the games shown I want to play watch dogs and that car club game. A new killzone is meh, I really wish someone would come out with a new WWII shooter, it's been years since a decent one came out.
Controller looks better. I'm an Xbox owner but my loyalty is up for grabs this gen.
So no price tag yet?
Last I heard it was going to sell for 460$ worth of euros and before that I heard 400$ US. I'll wait at least a year no matter what the cost anyway since launch titles aren't worth buying a system over.
The event felt like an apology for everything that's wrong with the PS3 and addressed a lot of the criticisms of this generation. It also felt like the end of Nintendo's home console era.
Destiny, killzone, diablo, Watch Dogs, you know they are saving the LBP 3 announcement for E3...That's pretty solid.
Destiny - multiplatform
Killzone - don't care
Watchdogs - don't care
LBP3 - never played any of the series
You show me Uncharted (the best PS3 game series IMO) and then things get interesting.
I'll be shocked if that's not a release title. How have not played LBP?
I tried the demo and wasn't exactly happy with it. I don't see the appeal of it TBH.
You missed DriveClub by Evolution (Motorstorm). It looks like a first person Motorstorm RC with real cars & real locations and all of the connectivity challenges that RC had, but on steroids. If that's what this game is, then I'll be getting it day one. Trying to beat PSN friends on RC over and over was a fucking blast.
Wake me up if they announce MGS: Ground Zeroes or MGS5 as a PS4 exclusive. Even then, I still might not give a shit. I still don't own a PS3, even though I loved MGS4.
I might finally get a PS3 this year for The Last of Us, though.
I watched it live at Polygon.
It was all pretty "meh", as all the cool kids say.
According to Moore's Law, we should be in the 12GHz range of CPUs.
But how long have been stuck at 3GHz.
Sure, you can overclock, but 1] It's OCing & not out-of-the-box speeds & 2] OCing won't take you anywhere near 12GHz.
It's called "diminishing returns".
The jump from PS3 to PS4 won't be anywhere near as huge as, say, the jump from Nintendo64 to PS2.
The graphics of PS4, while stunning, still, because of what we're used to from this current gen,
are hardly what I'd refer to as being "mindblowing".
So maybe we have hit the wall.
John Carmack says iD's next graphic engine, after "DOOM 4" -- which uses the same engine as "Rage" does --
will be as far as computer graphics can possibly go.
Maybe that's a good thing.
Now, instead of worrying about what's beyond oil paints, developers will now concentrate more on what's actually on the canvas.
Agreed on LBP. Just picked up LBP Karting for 20 bucks on Amazon a couple days ago. It's definitely a fun series.
I like the PS4 controller...touchpad makes alot of sense. And a share button? Oh no. Does this mean my Twitter/Facebook feeds are going to be clogged with "Your friend, _____, just played Motorstorm 5 and won 1st place!"? I noticed Sony was slowly easing into social networking. Honestly, my friends could care less about how my Be A Player guy was called up to the NHL in NHL 2013 or some shit like that. It's annoying.
It'll be really interesting to see what happens to console gaming over the next 10 years or so. People are becoming more and more content with playing games on their devices and the introduction of these super cheap Android TV/Gaming devices (OUYA, Nvidia, etc) could really change the way they market these expensive consoles with the expensive games to go along with it.
I'm glad they finally put a damned head phone jack on the system. Now I can actually use headphones that don't make me ears hot.
was that diablo 3 announcement real? that was just a goof, right?
It was real, and so is the retarded outrage.
