That seems to be a larger gap that I was expecting, no?

I think it is a bit surprising, 4.2 total and they haven't even launched in Japan yet is pretty amazing for a launch.  I mean 3 million for XB1 was impressive in its own right.   This number makes me wonder if EA underestimated the PS4 install base and if they perhaps undercharged MS for Titan Fall exclusivity.  PS4 could hit 6 million+ by March with these numbers.

From the Left 4 Dead folks, a 4 v 1 multiplayer game where 4 hunters take on one player controlled super monster.  Seems a bit like Predator or Ogre done as a FPS.

For some reason I imagine Hark will greatly enjoy playing the monster.

wow.  way to put that Gaikai purchase to use.   thumbsup

now to wait and see what the costs will be.  sadly, not a way to get access to the games we already bought, but if it's part of PS+ or an expanded version of it, I could see this being a nice cheap way to play games without the hassle of shipping/returning games. 

They are going to offer two pricing models, you can subscribe like Netflix, or just buy per title.

I agree, which is why I further think it was stupid to release prematurely without a killer Kinect app that set them apart.  Yeah yeah I understand wanting to compete with PS4 for the holiday sales but I'm not sure it was worth the perception that they "lost" the first release battle. 

I think the Xbox One had a stronger game lineup, so I'm not sure where the perception that they "lost" any first release battle.  Certainly there was no killer Kinect app unless you care about Kinect Fitness, but they had much better exclusives in Dead Rising 3, Forza 5, Killer Instinct and Zoo Tycoon.

lol you're right.  I just saw that they sold 3 million article on the front page.  I guess the perception thing I was getting more from these and other forums, maybe not reflecting sales.  How much did PS4 sell?

4.2 million per they keynote today.

The Last Stand went up over the weekend.  It was the first American movie directed by Kim Jee-Woon, who did the absolutely amazing The Good, the Bad, the Weird.  The Last Stand is kind of ok action fair with Schwarzenegger, but lacks the magic of Kim's Korean films.  If you havent watched The Good, the Bad, the Weird yet, check it out, it's great and also on Netflix.

Sadly, the only Kim Jee-Woon we have on Netflix Canuckistan is his short piece in The Doomsday Book which is far from his best. I enjoyed The Good, the Bad, the Weird as well as his A Tale of Two Sisters, and I really enjoyed his A Bittersweet Life - his best film IMO. I keep hoping we get some of his better movies, but so far we've been shut out.  icon_frown

[Edit] Almost forgot to mention - but 2 excellent Korean films we have on netflix.ca are A Company Man and The Man from Nowhere. Don't know if they're on Netflix USA, but if they are you might enjoy them too.

The Man from Nowhere is great.  I'll have to watch A Company Man now.   We have I Saw the Devil up on the US Netflix, but I haven't been able to work up the energy to tackle that one yet.

No, it doesn't. It shows another group of hostiles - not another Division. This was explained in the back-room walkthrough at E3. Those hostiles are local, and responding to the beacon for pickup that the woman playing calls for extraction. The 90sec timer is for how long it'll take for the extraction team to show up. You can be attacked at any point - you're drawing attention to your location.

So the ones who show up? We were told they're the same as the guys you fight to save the police station.

As the map zooms out at the end, it shows all the other groups of people (red dots) working to fight against the fall of society, and they explained how you could meet up with them and help out.

Watch the E3 trailer again, the guy at the end says "woah woah woah it's another group of players, brace for PvP"

They've talked about it since the beginning.  I believe it works out that in your game they appear as either rioters, terrorists, or what have you.

At the very least, Microsoft can afford to "lose" one console generation. The same can't be said about Sony at this point.


Microsoft "lost" their last two console gens  icon_confused.... or did you mean "one more"


Lost? If we remove the disturbingly xenophobic Japanese marketplace, the Xbox 360 won the last Gen handily.

From a global sales perspective they're so close to each other as not to matter. Coming from the 2001 Xbox market position and Sonys Ps2?

I don't know how you classify the 360 as a loss.

Regardless, the xb1 has an uphill battle. I'm of the mind that is the best position for MS to be in - they do well there. I just wish they'd not made some key decisions that caused the uproar and the subsequent 180.

You seem to be forgetting Nintendo, who may have bowed out early but still had like a 20 million WW lead over PS3 and 360.
I think around Aug last year it was roughly 360 80M, PS3 80M, Wii 100M.

I think it registers a hardware code at the Netflix side and associates that to your account, as opposed to user/pass.  Didn't the 360 do a code match to setup?  I remember it that way but it's been a while.   Netflix needs to let you see all registered devices like Amazon does, and I think they used to do this but when I looked earlier today I didn't see it listed.

I logged into Netflix today and noticed it was recommending me a lot of movies featuring African-American actors. Looked closer and my recent views showed a whole lot of movies I never watched. Looked at my viewing history, and it shows someone watching entire seasons of "How I Met Your Mother" going back at least to mid-December (it doesn't go back farther than that).

I changed my password and I'll have to see if that knocks the person out, or if they've got a device set up, in which case I'll need to call support and see if they can ID it.

What concerns me more is how this person got my password. It's a password I've used a lot, although now it's mostly used on low security things.

Sign out all devices too.  Did you recently sell trade-in an old device, it may just be running off that and not be an intentional hack.

To be fair the concept predates Groundhog Day, though that is the most popular notion. 12:01PM for instance was published in 73 and had a short film made in 1990 starring Kurtwood Smith (Red Forman/Boddicker).  You can find it on youtube.

The price for selling those snow globe cards have nosedived since beginning of the Winter sale (when it first started, I sold couple for $0.50 each, now you can't get any higher than $0.2 or so).  I sold every snow globe card I got so far.  With the snow globe cards are going to disappear at the end of the sale, I believe its value will drop like a rock, I probably will buy a set to craft a badge at the end of the sale, if the price for each one is no higher than 5 cents each.  

Alternatively the value could spike as people try to buy up the cards they need to complete their badges before they all expire.

Sony has launched in more countries, and it would also appear that they've generally provided more stock to countries that the XB1 has also launched in with the exception of the US and possibly UK.   I saw some numbers recently posted that had Spain at something like 134k PS4s v. 28k XB1s sold for instance.

What seems odd to me is that I'm seeing no reports of USA PS4 sightings, not in brick & mortar stores and not in online stores.  When Amazon had a handful of PS4s a day or two after launch, I expected we'd be seeing them pop up every few weeks at least.

With the Xbone, are the units popping up coming hot off the assembly line?  Or do I remember right that MS was holding back some of their initial inventory to let loose over time over the first few months?

NeoGaf usually has threads pop up for either.  They also run anecdotal threads, with people reporting in on their store stock etc.  They had one for last Sunday, probably will for this coming Sunday as well.  That's really probably where you want to be to see this kind of stuff Pug.

Zen Pinball 2 was actually released for the PS4 in Europe today. I just finished installing it and importing all my tables. smile

Was that import process smooth?  I know the PS Blog had an article on the process, but curious if it was easy enough that you don't even need to bother reading it.  They did make it sound like if you wanted a table to be available for PS3, that you should buy it on that version and import it over instead of buying on PS4 and trying to import to PS3.  I own most of the tables and honestly, I would probably never go back to playing the PS3 version, but I also like to do things the best way.

It was pretty smooth. I just hit square, and the game brought up each individual DLC pack I owned in turn, allowing me to "purchase" it for free on the PS4 while the game was still running. The packs didn't start downloading automatically though, so I probably missed something. Another run through the import process let me download each pack, and they were activated in the game whenever each pack was installed. No need to restart. The downloads were quick too, as is par for the course on the PS4 at the moment.

I discovered that I'm missing the latest set of Star Wars boards. I'm probably going to boot up the PS3 version and buy them there just to make sure I get it on all three platforms (PS3, Vita and PS4).

And what's the process for transfering all of the purchased tables over from the 360?
Well first you add funds to your PSN account...  icon_frown

PS4 version of Pinball Arcade is up and it's gorgeous. Make sure to set the lighting to Dark.

I just finished all the beginner goals on Twilight Zone in one staggering game.  Ranked number 3.  Something like my 3rd game in.

I do wish there were online leaderboards.  That's something I really enjoyed about Pinball FX (BTW, I don't know what I'm going to do about all those tables I have on the 360 now that the PS4 is my default - suppose I'll just have to wait for when I finally get the Xbone).

My only complaints about Pinball Arcade aren't really the game's fault at all.  1) There just is no good camera angle for a pinball game (without turning your TV sideways) and B) I wish the VO audio was a little easier to understand, but they're using old sound files and also trying to emulate what they sounded like in the arcade (still a little sweetening would be nice)  iii) I suppose it would be nice to have variable backgrounds (and higher res, too).  This one they could fix.  Oh, and Four) There is no way to switch the flipper buttons to the triggers, you have to use the shoulder buttons.  It just doesn't feel right.  Maybe it's a faster response, though.

But if you like pinball (even if you're terrible at it, like me), this is fantastic.  The amount of detail in the options and history and tips and tweaks is just incredible.

Yeah Zen has always been better about the video game aspect of these games, while Farsight has the better physics and the real world tables.   Zen 2 is due out Christmas eve now, I guess they thought better of two pinball games on the same day.
