There's also this bit:

Currently, I'd call it a toss up between the Xbox One and PS4 versions--the Xbox One version has a smoother frame rate, but I'd rather play the game on a Dual Shock 4. Getting that frame rate pegged would definitively swing things in the PS4's direction, even over the PC version, which is sort of a mess. Of course, we're talking about minor differences in a game that has much more significant issues than mere frame rate, so you probably shouldn't take any of this as a ringing endorsement of the release without reading my review first.

Wow, that is honestly surprising. The Giant Bomb crew nearly always preferred the Xbox 360 versions of multiplatform games in the last gen, mainly due to the controller. Good to hear!

It mostly sounds like they preferred none of the versions and would rather not play the game at all. Tongue

lol...yep, it does sound like that!

I'm just glad that the Dualshock 4 is sounding like a real winner. If it can win over the 360 crowd at Giant Bomb, it should do pretty well. smile

This is what happens when they start almost copy/pasting games.   COD is becoming the Madden of shooters.

I'm quite sad that I won't be getting a new console until next year. Why is the world so cruel? Then I think of all the people who are worse off than me, and I start smiling again.

You have to crawl around in your garage and attic and sell a bunch of stuff on ebay like I did.   I have zero wife aggro over these two purchases because I scrounged and scraped and sold.

SMF has a built-in ignore function, right?  We just have it disabled?  Is there any way to have mods manually force certain people to have each other on ignore?

I'm pretty much in the same boat.  "Oh noes, I can't get a new console at launch!  I just have to settle for having a new house, a new fridge, new washer & dryer, and as for gaming, access to a ton of cheap 360/PS3 games I never got around to trying, a giant Steam backlog, and a new 2DS with a Zelda game on the horizon and a backlog of 3DS games I have yet to play..."

But then I see a new video of a next-gen game and I'm back to wishing I kept a console preorder.

We don't have it enabled because we all decided it was a stupid feature that could result in a broken experience at times. The idea was that our forum-goers are mature enough to self-regulate for the most part and hopefully knew when to chill the fuck out. If you gotta ignore someone or be ignored, you need to step away from your keyboard.

No forcing necessary. I would use it in a heartbeat if it was available. I'm tired of getting attacked by the same usual suspects no matter how carefully, neutrally and diplomatically I phrase my posts. If they want to whine, they can whine at the wall.

It was never enabled, and we aren't going to enable it. Your brain has a built-in ignore feature. If people can't be civil in this tread, report them and they will be dealt with accordingly or the tread will be locked.

I'm not going to get into the specifics of why we aren't going to enable the feature, suffice to say that the reasons against it were more than compelling. We got through elections without this feature we can get through these console launches.

I think there are some units available here and there.    Target is even getting excess stock of PS4's, and by all counts it should be in higher demand.

A co-worker of mine talked to someone at Target and apparently only 6 people placed a preorder on a PS4. Possibly because Target (at least my local one) doesn't accept online pre-orders for in-store pickup, only walk-ins. If that's the case at all Targets, there might be a better shot at getting a console there.

As launch gets closer, I might actually try to go get an XBO when it comes out.  I won't put a ton of effort into it and if I happen to stumble across one, I will get it.  The feature that kind of won me over?  XBox Fitness.  I do a lot of running and have done P90X, which actually improves my running times.  I'm looking for more workouts to change things up here and there a bit and like the idea of having it watch my progress.  So, I might be breaking my initial thought of waiting until March and grab one if I see it.  If I can't get one, then when it happens, it happens.

The Xbone fitness stuff is really calling out to me, too. And at the same time, the PS4 remote play stuff is looking way more appealing than I gave it credit for initially. I thought I'd be settled in on one or the other by now but instead I'm just getting pulled both ways on a delightful but expensive medieval rack.
