I just recall Wii U being very easy to get at launch.  There were GAF threads and they talked about just going to a store and buying it on the Bombcasts around its launch.  I don't remember it being anything like what we see this year.

Are we sure on those Wii U numbers, that those are sold through and not shipped?

Now you can argue we haven't seen the numbers with an additional week of sales, and that is true, but I highly doubt MS was able resupply a million consoles in a week's time.

According to Andrew House in a live stream just now (no written source yet that I can find), the PS4 has sold more than 2.1 million units worldwide as of the 1st of December.

Edit: Now with source.

But...but....what about XBox One selling more on Black Friday??!?!?!  LOL. 

Before you strut around peacock proud, let's wait for the global sales for Xbone.

Do you think MS shipped or held back a million units for a week?

My advance replacement still hasn't shipped.. Called CS last night and they couldn't give me any information.  My My Device page states I should have my return unit between 11/30 - 12/3. Well today is 12/3 and if I don't have a replacement today I might have to turn to Amazon to see if I can get a replacement  and dispute the 530.00 hold on my CC @#$(*&%

That sucks.

TiLT, you haven't been able to get your Harmony Ultimate to work with the PS4, right?

Word is, nothing is working, remote-wise.

I was all ready to upgrade to the Ultimate from the One, too, even with it's bizarre button placement (and no skip feature).

I got my TV remote working via HDCP for simple functions.

Meaningless stat, and I'm not sure how accurate anyways.  Black Friday is pretty much irrelevant when both consoles launched within two weeks of it,  I doubt this has any meaningful impact on the November sales numbers.  Has MS even broken 1 million in the US yet?


LOL seriously?   They broke 1 million in the first 24 hours....
In the US are you sure?  Because all the articles said 1 Million worldwide, which is a fair bit different.

It was my intention to play a variety of games on the PS4 today, but I ended up getting sucked into AC4, leaving only half an hour each with Killzone, Lego Marvel and Flower early on. I keep having to stop and admire the crystal clear graphics. 1080p makes a huge difference to me. Amazingly, the last patch for AC4 seems to have pretty much eliminated most aliasing artifacts, which makes things like ropes look great in motion when they would have been a flickering mess at lower resolutions.

Looking forward to messing around some more with this thing tomorrow. It's been an extremely pleasant experience so far.

Yeah, AC 4 is gorgeous.

On another note, does anyone know how to turn the controller's light off? I'm about to take ducktape to it...
Use painters tape not ducctape, shouldn't leave any residue when you remove it.

Quote from: Autistic Angel on November 26, 2013, 10:03:55 PM

I don't think I understand the offset sticks vs. not-offset sticks debate, possibly because I have no preference on way or another.  I just put my thumbs on the sticks wherever they happen to be.  The angle difference just never registered with me, and the 360 and PS3 controllers always seemed equally comfortable.

What is it that people are debating exactly?  Is it a matter of wrist comfort, directional accuracy, or just an issue of habit?

-Autistic Angel

I think it's partly a false issue.  The DS3 was just bad and there's some false association that the reason it was was because of the stick placement, whereas the 360 controller was good with the offset placement.   Now the DS4 is a good controller (great even) and it uses the symmetrical sticks and I think goes a fair way to prove that the offset v symmetric argument is kind of meaningless, when really it's more about the overall quality of the controller.

They still have the left stick in the position that is not my personal preference so I remain skeptical, but I would like to pick one up and feel it for myself.
Fixed that for you. Essentially, the controller difference is down to personal preference now.

Sigh... yes, of course this is all in my opinion. I didn't really think that needed to be spelled out, but thanks. smile (added a smiley to make it clear I am just clowning around)

For the record the first gamepad I ever owned with an analog stick was a Dualshock 1, so it isn't like I had some MS/Nintendo preference before using a Sony controller. I just don't like having the main movement stick in the lower position since it feels so unnatural. Likewise, while I haven't yet held it, the new Wii U classic controller which has the right stick up where the buttons should be seems equally non-intuitive. In my oh so humble opinion of course. slywink

Trust me, I HATED Playstation controllers before this. I was extremely skeptical. Never thought I'd say I would like a Playstation controller as much as I like the DS4. It just feels really good in my hands. Not having offset sticks doesn't bother me as much as I thought it would, either. After a significant amount of time with both new controllers I was shocked to realize that I much preferred the DS4.

I've sort of ended up the same.  I just used my 360 controller again and it felt weird.

Yeah I think I'm pretty much done with the competitive side of COD. I'll play some squad mode or extinction if people want to do some of that.

BF4 is much better for my play style and temperament.

I think you'd really like the latest Killzone.  The support class in that is super strong and there's a lot of variability to it from building spawn beacons, turrets, air support, or ammo boxes depending on your loadout.  And in a nice twist, the rotating objective mode is the most populated as opposed to Team DM.

The other thing that is bothering me is that the pass through seems to lock me into always using the Xbone for TV, unless I missed something.  With the unit off, I tried my regular remote and turned on cable box + TV but got nothing.  I thought generally passthroughs would also behave passively like a true "thru" with the power off but apparently not in this case?  Maybe I'm remembering wrong but I'm pretty sure that's how my receiver works.  This isn't really a major problem except that it means everyone else is also forced to use the Xbone to watch TV.  It's fine for me, but I don't want my non-gaming partner forced into using it.  Then again maybe I can trick him into gaming with me this way lol.

That's by design.  MS wants to control/track all your media consumption, so letting the cable signal through while the XB1 is off would defeat that purpose.

Finished the single player and the reviews are mostly right about it if considering that alone.  It's just too inconsistent across the campaign.    Usually it falters when it tries to break up the formula.  There are moments where it's great, then there are moments where you just wonder what Guerrilla was thinking.  I do think most of the reviewers didn't give the multiplayer enough credit though, I think that is quite good from what I have seen so far.
