I think what Purge is trying to say is that even if Sony has been a proponent for digital distribution, they certainly didn't trumpet that when MS was facing a backlash over online DRM.


That's called being a smart business. Also they don't need to trumpet it. Their actions in what they offer with digital speak for themsleves. MS screwing up their own PR is their own fault. Sony had no obligation to bail them out.

Nobody said they Sony had to - even I pointed out how it was a good strategy for THEM, as in Sony. For progress in gaming? Notsomuch - they set back disk-less console gaming licenses being more than just buy it and be stuck with it. There is nothing to be done about it now - MS will likely swing their product in that direction via open-market means (eg: hey buy Halo 5 online, and you could trade it in / share it vs buying in-store). If they're smart, they'll make it slightly cheaper. Or they may just nurse their DRM backlash wounds and not push further. 

OMG you are freaking hilarious. You actually think that MS was on some amazing path with digital distribution an licensing with the Xbox One and Sony irrecoverably ruined it? Geez dude talk about going off the rails....

Huh? I have no idea what your saying dude. You obviously have some conspiracy burr about Sony ruining your dream of an all digital world when the facts say otherwise. Everything bad that happened with the Xbox One at its launch was self inflicted by Microsoft and horrible PR. Again since you seem to ignore the facts that Sony has pushed digital distribution on consoles faster that MS has so again no idea what your issue with them is but whatever.

Sony isn't hindering the future of games distribution. They have pushed it on the PS3 with their Day 1 Digital on PSN and with having all digital buying ability on the PS Vita. If you want to not ever buy a disc/cart with a PlayStation product you can.

That's why I suggested the USB drive and partnering with Gamespot, or even better Red Box.  Just go up to a Red Box plug your drive in and download the install files.

Eh at that point you might as well still sell discs as people still have to leave their homes to go get the content.

The Wii U sold a little over  200k in Nov. That put it well behind even the 360 and PS3. Its selling horribly now. That's just the truth.

The streaming can be used on about anything Sony. Even Bravia TV's will be able to do it.

To me, the most interesting part of that is the Wii U number (which doesn't include the extremely important Nov/Dec numbers).  Their sales aren't quite as dire as I'd been imagining.

I get that Nintendo didn't have the impressive out-of-the-gate stats (and, in fact, stumbled), but this indicates that they're gaining more traction than I expected.  I don't imagine they'll overtake either of the other two in the long run, however.

Huh? That shows how Nintendo sales have utterly collapsed. The PS4 has basically caught the Wii in 6 weeks. The Wii U has zero traction at this point.
53  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Re: 2890 Days until launch. Which system are you getting? on: January 08, 2014, 02:43:28 PM
Microsoft clearly put allot of stock into the US since its already become easy to get one now. If they had taken some of that into other markets they could have been closer in sales, but then again they are also hindered by having to get Kinect voice working  in all those different languages.

Here's something that will blow your mind.

It took the 360 2 1/2 years to reach 10 million units. The XB1 has already hit nearly 1/3 of that in less than 2 months.

The PS3 reached 20 million units in 2 years. The PS4 has already reached nearly 1/4 of that in less than 2 months.

Both of these consoles are crushing records. Game publishers have to be doing a happy dance right now, because apparently the console industry is FAR from dead.

Your numbers look like just U.S. not worldwide. 360 sold more than that in total after 2 /12 years.
56  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 2890 Days until launch. Which system are you getting? on: January 07, 2014, 07:15:48 PM
Its like E3 all over again. Sony comes in after MS and gets to poke fun at their slip-ups with DRM, used games sales etc along with a lower price. Now the day after MS touts 3 million Ones sold they get to counter punch at CES with 4.2 million.

I may have covered this before on here somewhere,but I have the DVD versions of the Originals from the Limited Edition collections released in 2006 they look fine,and if a company like Lowry(who did the Bond movie restorations)could get hold of them,they can polish them up even more ready for HD conversion(i have no idea how it is all done,so....er..yeah)

The Bond movies were meticulously restored by frame by frame from the original negatives.

According to this Forbes article, which they admit is based off info from a sketchy site, the One was outsold by the Wii U the week before Christmas.
And the 3DS outsold everything. That's pretty amazing for a system that was practically DOA.

The 3DS was just overpriced at the start because Nintendo was greedy. Coming off the success of the Wii and DS they thought people would pay a premium for their system even though affordable was a cornerstone of those systems success. They quickly saw the error or their ways, lowered the price and it started selling.
60  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: DISNEY buying LUCASFILM....More Star Wars coming... on: January 05, 2014, 06:27:33 PM
Ah that's right. Its was the merchandising rights Lucas held onto at the time since the studio didn't think they were worth anything. Bad executive decision on that part.

Now I wonder why has there never been blurays of the original trilogy released so many fans have wanted(Not Lucas's bastardized versions) . Lucas always gave excuses up to saying that there basically weren't viable versions around anymore. Knowing Fox had the rights its amazing that they didn't keep negative copies of their own stored securely.

Uhm, no. Sorry, but the SW movies are overblown. It was a B movie that went over budget. Phenomenal special effects of its day but so much of what made it great has been tinkered and tampered with - the characters and the license are pretty much dead to me.

/rant from someone who just completed Force Unleashed ][

That's why i said early 90s,before the special editions(Before the Empire..sorry couldn't resist)


Is it true FOX still owns the current 6 Star Wars films until 2020 apart from the original Star Wars film,that they have the rights for forever?

Pretty sure Fox has just been the distributor for the previous films but Lucas owned all rights to the them, which would now be with Disney.

Looks like one of the prequel stand alone films WILL be about Boba Fett.....before Episode II was released i would have been over the moon about this,now i wish they leave the character alone,they have done enough damage to it

Who are these "they" you're talking about? We are dealing with a different company now, and in particular, with one less George Lucas.

Oh i see,so Disney will just ignore everything from Episode II?..damage is done

God we could only hope so.

Looks like the January games have been announced, and they finally have a good, somewhat recent game in Sleeping Dogs and there will also be Lara Croft: Guardian of Light.

Roughly a year and a half after PS+ gave Guardian of Light away for their members. retard

Hey it's only 9 months after Plus gave away Sleeping Dogs.  Seriously though, Pllus started off pretty crappy for games and got much better. GFG seems to be getting better and Microsoft didn't give up on it right at the end of their initial announcement.  So I'm pretty happy about it even if I've played both of the games.  Competition could make both of them even better. 

I really enjoyed Sleeping Dogs. It was much better than expected.  I actually got the Platinum on PS3.  It deserves more exposure.

Microsoft is gonna have to get allot better if there's to be any sort of competition in the monthly free games area. PS+ subs got these games awhile ago, and this month will get Brothers and Bioshock Inifinite. Frankly there's no comparison between the two offerings on a month to month basis.

I will probably end up watching it because that makes her happy, but I won't last long if it veers too far into soap opera.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Well you can't blame the writers/producers on the ending of season 3. The actor playing Mathew wanted out because of other roles being offered. It wasn't originally in their plans to off 2 main characters in one year.

I will say i"m still a little nervous with them introducing real superpowers into the world, since the first season was just regular action. Something I actually liked them choosing to do, but I'll hold off till I see more.
