That is probably the one thing that will actually make me keep my pS4 in the end. If I had to play it on my TV I would probably never get any time on it. Can I turn on and turn of the PS4 with my Vita?

I think the Vita Remote Play will work if the PS4 is in standby mode.

Looks like we finally have a console launch that wasn't supply constrained either. Plenty of pre orders and extra units in stores to sell.

The only slightly "Debbie Downer" comment I'd make is I want to see sales after the initial hardcore gamers rush and holiday sales. Do both systems keep good numbers after that. I hope they can.

I'm not sure I really like the interface for the PS4.    It's still early, but I'm starting to decide that it's underwhelming me.

I am finding I like it much more than the XMB from PS3.  Much faster navigation to the things I want to get to.

I'm fine with it. I don't want the UI to get overblown and cluttered. Its still a console not a full windows/Mac PC. Just let me do the few basic things I want in a quick and straight forward manner.

So UPS has screwed me over, and it's set for Monday delivery.  They can't even change it to customer pickup at the facility.  I have a bad feeling my PS4 delivery odyssey isn't going to be over Monday either...

That blows, sorry to hear man!  Have you contacted Amazon to see if they can compensate you in some way?

If it was not regular shipping option where they have a window of days to get there, but something like 2 day then they should refund the shipping charge back for failing to deliver it.

Word of warning to those of you planning to play Assassin's Creed 4 on the PS4: Give it a couple of days first. Ubisoft just confirmed that the retail version of the game runs at 900p, but that it will be upgraded to 1080p in a title update available "shortly after release". Still no word on the resolution of the Xbox One version, which is kind of suspicious.

There was a 1.01 update available when I put the disc in this morning.

I am willing to have a larger sized box that provides a full featured entertainment system that integrates into my living room.

Let's call these two systems for what they are:

PS4:  Turbo charged PS3 (in terms of not expanding really on the feature set) that is capable of next gen gaming, but is focused only on gaming.   Developer friendly architecture.
Xbone:  Next gen gaming device that also provides living room/entertainment center integration and multitasking


There is room for both.   In fact I'm thankful we will have both.

The only multimedia ability that the One has over PS4 is the HDMI pass through. The rest is just app support for streaming. Also the PS4 can do multitasking too like any modern operating system.

If they are gonna charge for things like MP now the one thing I won't give them the least bit of slack anymore is performance and reliability with PSN. The network damn well better work and it better be up 99.99 percent of the time Sony.

Anyone know how to transfer data if you swap HDD at a later date?

I would like to know this, too.  I've watched a few of these HDD swaps, but no one mentions transferring the info.
I would assume it's the same or similar to the PS3.
You use a usb flash drive with the built in Playstation backup software, pop the new drive in, then restore from said flash drive. It was easy to do, but time consuming..IE: hours...

Newegg's got 128GB thumb drives for $80.  slywink

It almost reads like only the special event "The Defenders" will air on Netflix but not the other shows with the individual characters (Daredevil, Jessica Jones (?), Iron Fist, Luke Cage).

They will all be on Netflix each with a full commitment of 13 episodes.

The problem with episodes like this is putting a main character in mortal danger doesn't have the emotional weight since you know they will come out at the end. Unless its like the last episode of the season and they want to kill a character off for a big splash.

Amused by the comment that the casting people felt none would think she could pass off as a scientists, but hey hot brunette hackers are totally common.

Well its expected in that case. I assume MS is paying some fee to Unity so developers can use the engine free, but of course that means they can't make it for PS4. If developers don't want to be platform limited then they license it themselves.

I don't get the not being given out to the press part in that quote. There have been many reviews already on AC IV and BF4 talking about the PS4 version from sites like Revision 3 and IGN among others so the press do have units.

PLEASE NOTE:
The Xbox One footage is the same one that DF got heavily criticized for. The color balance in the Xbox One footage is wrong! Don't draw any conclusions based on it. It actually has the same color balance as the PS4 version, but you can't see that in these videos. Since the black colors are crushed in that footage, a lot of detail is lost in dark areas. The best comparisons are done in the bright parts of the videos for this reason.

The flaw of Internet video vs actually watching the game on the TV. Even if its 1080p the video is still heavily compressed compared what you get on your TV.

No, you're talking about something else. There's very, very little compression in these videos (hence their size), but the Xbox One footage has the wrong RGB range set. This has nothing to do with compression, but it means the recording equipment received values outside of the color range it was expecting, clamping them as a result.

My mistake in wording. I wasn't talking about these downloadable ones but stuff people are watching streaming from Youtube and other websites.

This month also marks the anniversary of Vita games being added to PS+, so presumably the year-long games (Uncharted, Gravity Rush, and Wipeout) will be replaced by three new games.  I don't think Sony has confirmed this, but that's what they did with the year-long PS3 games.  Also, Sony confirmed that you'll be able to add the PS4 games to your account even if you don't have a PS4.  I don't plan on getting a PS4 until next year, so that should make for a nice big library once I do get one.

They could change them, but the Vita has a much smaller library of games vs the PS3. I would be surprised too see them take out something like Uncharted as its still one of the best games to show off the Vita.

Well for the most part I think your a part of a minority. The rise and popularity of the FPS genre is not based on story and characters. Even Bioshock's designer Kevin Levine said they had to make a great shooter first with quality game mechanics at its core.

There's still time yet for it to fail. Guerrilla Games has proven its inability to write a decent story since KZ2 even if they've finally gotten the technical aspects down.

The game could very well turn out like Crysis. Technically sound, but overall lacking any soul, with a stupid and ridiculous story.

And the difference to this compared to just about any other FPS "story"? I mean really Battlefield and CoD are massively popular. Do people really get into the crazy Michael Bay plot lines of either of those?

Outside of maybe Bioshock it doesn't matter much to most players IMO.

Will be interested to see if Sony will change policies because of feedback with the PS4. This no DLNA, no MP3 stuff is clearly not tech related but business so as to try and drive business to their online music and video services. For all the crap MS took about things I'll give them credit for making a number of changes to get back on the good side with users.
149  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on: October 31, 2013, 04:57:26 AM
I'm sure they will get to those other characters since they have the standard network need to will 22 or so episodes. I just don't have the patience to go through that many to get there. It's the fundamental problem I have with network series. They want to much content so there's too much filler and dragging on. I so much prefer series on basic cable like FX, AMC etc. They have 10-13 per season. It's more condensed, more stuff of consequence happens. Think if Breaking Bad had to pump out 22 per season what that would have done to the quality of the show. Well enough of my rant. I wish I would like SHIELD more but with my viewing time available I don't think I want to commit that much to it anymore.

This Digital Foundry article sounds like it, or close at least.

The Xbox backlash has been from a very small segment of the market - people who read gaming sites and preorder consoles.

Then why did MS reverse so many of their initial policies? Why bow down to such a small minority if the majority would want all of these "awesome features" as they were originally described as?

MS fans still can't seem to accept the truth that MS royally fucked up those first couple of months and has had to spend all this time doing damage control.

THey already announced the XB1 will allow added HDD space  via USB3 IIRC. It's not in place as of yet.

Right, which is why I said it didn't support it at launch. I know it will later. If someone were to get 8-10 games at launch (not even counting downloadable things), are they just SOL? Can you even replace the drive in the XB1? I honestly don't know.

How many people would have 8+ games they are actually playing installed at once. If its more than 5% I'd be very surprised.

Besides the PS4 will have the easy HD upgrade just like the PS3 did.

Long as the reviews hit before the system comes out then I don't see the big deal. I guess Xbone fanboys don't like the possibility of positive PS4 reviews being out there with no corresponding XB1 reviews.

In a situation where pre-orders are almost necessary in order to get a console within the first few months after launch, pre-release information is extra important so that we can make educated choices about which product to buy, if any. Sony knows this and Microsoft knows this, so when either of them holds back information, it's easy to get suspicious as the consumer.

Those pre-orders were made long ago. If someone went with one of the bundles they know full well they are committing to the game(s) without having reviews to make a decision so no it still doesn't matter much. As for the rest if the Nov 12th info is right then you got 10 days to read reviews to your hearts content before its out.
