That's right up there with the recent EA bundle for a great value.
122  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 10 days until launch. Which system are you getting? on: November 05, 2013, 04:52:11 PM
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.

FOR PS3:
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen
Ibb And Obb

FOR PS VITA:
Soul Sacrifice
Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath.

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.
133  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.

I read a great article that was basically an interview with several developers talking about the differences between the Xbox One and the PS4. (If I can find it I'll post it again, it was on n4g and I can't find the link now).

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

Really looking forward to Driveclub especially since PS+ gets a free version to try out, but I hope there's a new Dirt game coming. I loved the off road Rally racing of those games. The big dirt flinging slides and high jumps were so much fun.

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.

With Ghosts I think its that the majority of the sales are still going to come from the current gen systems because of the install bases, hence they aren't putting that much effort into the One/PS4 versions. Turn Ten can get Forza because they are making a signature game for the system and they have to make it for one spec not the 5 for Ghosts. Plus and this is a guess I bet its easier to get a racing game looking good at high FPS than a big shooter like Battlefield.

I think the difference is that Turn 10 was on the inside - I recall videos where they had direct input on product design.

The teams working with outside vendors (due to the confidentiality agreements and the nature of competitive business) are not going to have those same inside tracks. MS will surely help them, but they're not going to invite  Dice, IW, and the like into the design process proper - it would be like a cook asking you to help sear your steak as opposed to your waiter asking how you like your steak done. EA, Activision, Ubisoft - they are individually collaborators with MS and Sony, but also their customers. MS doesn't dictate what gets put in their games - and they don't get the kind of insider benefits a first party developer does.

If true I find that very telling as to why the Xbox one ended up the way it did. Kinect, Cable TV addon stuff, etc..

Mark Cerny publicly talked about spending a long time talking to many different developers about what they wanted in a new console. Basically the opposite of what they had done with the PS3. Conversely it looks like Microsoft came up with what they thought was best and then released it to developers and said here ya go guys now make games for it.

One of the major reasons why I've personally switched and pre-orderd the PS4 after being mostly an Xbox gamer for the last generation.

One site in particular, VG Chartz, tends to come up a lot. VG Chartz numbers are considered unreliable, and because sales discussions often degrade into console war-style arguments between posters, it's really important to us that accurate sales numbers are posted for discussion. Users are generally banned for posting VG Chartz numbers because of the way it derails threads and prevents good discussion.

VGchartz numbers are usually a bunch of junk but NeoGaf posters hardly need any help to derail threads.

I don't see why people would have trouble with other super hero stuff not being mentioned. The very basis of Marvel comics is based on the concept of all these different timeline/universes etc. Just look at the crazy number of X-men variations they have spit out over the years. I think it would be bad to incorporate all that into the show. It would quickly get very convoluted and IMO only appeals to the most hardcore comic book fan that follows every thread. This is a mass market TV show on a major Network. That stuff isn't gonna fly.

Stupid China's terrible and corrupt labor and business culture. I hate having to worry about this with every big purchase.
The worst thing about this particular instance is that consumers get screwed either way because there's not a lot of choice when it comes to games consoles. We don't have much power to influence the console manufacturers here. Only for electronics where there is actual choice do we get the chance to make a difference. I know Apple uses Foxconn extensively, despite getting grilled about it in the media multiple times. Don't buy iPhones or iPads. Buy competing products that don't use labor practices that equate to slavery. I think some of their competitors do the same thing (Samsung maybe?) but I don't remember the details at the moment.

All of them do it. ALL of them. Don't buy the horseshit that it's just Apple. Our electronics empire is built on the back of cheap asian labor, and it's not going to stop until China changes their labor laws

Most of them use chinese labor, yes. Not all of them use Foxconn though, which is where the biggest problems are. There are varying degrees of worker abuse in China too, but Foxconn uses every single opportunity, every single loophole, to drain their workers of everything they've got. Foxconn is the problem that has to be dealt with first.

How do you know that Foxconn is the worst? We know about their problems because they are the biggest and associated with companies like Apple so the news covers it. I hardly doubt other manufacturers are any better. They just don't have reporters snooping around their factories.

I spawned near a car that was intact,but it just looked awful,i thought i was looking at PS2 graphics

People this is a beta version without all the stuff like the best textures used. There's no reason this doesn't look the same as BF3 on the 360 did which was just fine for a current gen game.
