Yeah, I don't understand the indie game emphasis. It's probably because I already have two platforms to play cheap indie titles on - a PC and an iPad. Lord knows I don't need a $400 console on top of it to play games like that. I can see why people without a PC would be into it, but for me personally it's not much of an incentive.



this.  plus I imagine I'll be able to get them at a cheaper price quicker than the price will drop on XBL/PsN.

Nothing cheaper than free, which is what some of them will eventually be on PS+

So I mostly neglected my my PS3 friends list and did most of my gaming on the 360, but looks like I'm going to be primarly on the PS4 this go around so I better take some measures to fix that, PSN id below.

Should we create a new thread for PS4?

So many indie games these days are love letters to old console games too so it's only fitting to be able to play them on a console.

I really hope that xbone version has dedicated servers - I grow tired of losing 1v1s and reliving the Han Solo debate.

I believe all versions of the game are getting dedicated servers this time out.

The new Killzone looks so pretty, but I know next to nothing about the series.  Are the previous titles worth playing?  Start with with the first, or the most recent?

I think you can pretty much skip straight to Shadow Fall.  It takes place something like 30+ years after the previous games. 
Killzone 2 also had one of the most aggressively annoying characters as one of your team mates in the history of video games.  At one point playing that game I spent over a minute just knifing him in the face, sadly there was no damage from friendly fire   icon_frown

The older games were also more of CoD style corridor shooter, whereas the new game looks a bit more Crysis like with open levels and multiple approaches to objectives.  I actually think it looks a lot improved from a gameplay point of view based on the trailers.
968  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 14 days until launch. Which system are you getting? on: November 01, 2013, 07:17:00 PM
The plan was just got get Killzone  and the PS+ games and to wait until Xmas, but with that Target deal and rumors of Amazon matching it, I'll probably grab two more.  Maybe BF4 and AC4 if I can tack them on to my Amazon preorder, or if I got to Target I'll add Knack or NBA2k14 or maybe something else.  Have to see how it all shakes out.
969  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Killzone Shadow Fall on: November 01, 2013, 04:13:05 PM
This game takes place 30 years later or some such, so I think we are safe from Rico, cameo at best I'd guess.

Struck a nerve with the club Sony comment eh? Just stating what I saw as I read through this thread.  Get mad if you want I guess just a comment from an observer reading through.  Carry on don't let me interrupt your regularly scheduled console war haha
Two posts in a row with absolutely no worthwhile content. You're on a roll!

Let's review the gameplan team:

1.  Post positive PS4 news.   (this is 100% ok and I'm totally for it, the only one on the list I'm good with)
2.  Post negative Xbone news
3.  Jump at the chance to dive into discussion about how negative the news is for Xbone even though you aren't buying one
4.  Pretend to be 'non partisan' and innocent.   I mean the other people that think you are shitting on their console of choice are overly sensitive after all.     They are obviously either ignorant or overreacting.  
5.  Throw a post up to demonstrate your superior and magnanimous stature and position of 'neutrality'
6.  Discredit or dismiss any opposing opinions.
7.  News clearly positive for the Xbone and against your theme?   Ask for source.
8.  Source good?    Say it really isn't that important anyway.... not a big deal to you.    Meh.
9.  Get called on being asinine about fanboi tactics?   Accuse person of adding no value, being too sensitive, being part of the problem, or just toss virtual hands up and say 'hey I'm just being a totally neutral and cool dude here!   Don't look at me! "
10.  Accuse accusers of being 'crazy', 'adding no value', 'hey look!  people are rolly eyeing you'
11.  Virtual high five other club members and continue back to 1

And no, this isn't directed only at Canuck.   I'm NOT going to get into the business of naming names, like Canuck, Forgeforsaken, Tilt..........

The fact that you've gone to the effort if writing this whole thing shows that you're way too into it. You're way too defensive for someone who is getting both consoles. You're even slamming your own console purchase ("haha no Titanfall for ps4!") just to spite others. It's time to take a step back.
TiLT has posted lots of negative xbox news because there's been an embarrassment of riches in that regard. But he also consistently posts negative Sony news as well.

Reference items #4 and #12

I'm glad you're owning up to pretending to be non-partisan, that ruse of yours was getting old.

There's two types of third party exclusives really.  There's the good ones where the company basically helps fund a game that wouldn't get made otherwise, like Bayonetta 2 on Wii U, or Dead Rising 3 on the XB1 (at least that's the impression I've gotten from Capcom), and then there's the shitty ones where a company pays out to prevent a game that would be on multiple platforms from being able to.  Pretty much all the players do both types, but I'd really rather see more of the first and less of the second.

FFS it has nothing to do with being pro-Sony or anti-MS it has to do with reputable sources and credible rumors v things that some dweeb pulls out their ass, and what do you know most of the credible rumors from reputable sources have in fact been confirmed.

There's a difference between rumors from reputable sources and those from folks just making shit up.  Generally the stuff that's been posted here has been the former, and many of us have made a point to detail the source and their history of accuracy.   I mean YK you really are doing some gymnastics lately.   Are there all kinds if crazy rumors that are bullshit on the internet,yes,  have most of the rumors posted here by members turned out to be accurate, yes,

Just thought of something --  even if that launch day patch that Hetz downloaded is legit (and if it was I was going to do the same thing), he won't be able to put it on a USB drive to install it.
You can.

Will I be able to install system software update 1.50 via a USB drive?

Yes, you will be able to download the firmware to your PC and transfer it to PS4 using a USB memory stick. However, to use the USB method the first time you take PS4 out of the box and before installing system software update 1.50, you’ll need to enable safe mode. When PS4 is powered off, press and hold the Power Button for seven seconds to enter safe mode. Note: Users should only update using official files downloaded from PlayStation.com.

Never even saw some of those, and some of those have been confirmed.  The Titanfall PS4 one WAS true until recently, Respawn's tweets confirm that pretty much, but the deal changed, but it was true at the time.

982  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 30 days until launch. Which system are you getting? on: October 30, 2013, 10:08:11 PM
So I got my DS4 today.  It's pretty nice but nothing earth shattering. PC support is a bit messy right now, but I did try it out in a few games on PC as well as PS3 (where it also works for a bunch of games if you wire it in).   It's definitely way better than the DS3.  For dpad based games like Volgar I like it a lot better than the 360 controller.  For analogue stick games I think I may still like the 360 controller slightly better, but it's very very close.  It's certainly not like the DS3 v 360 where the 360 controller was a clear cut winner.  I think for this coming generation, controller preference as a deciding factor on games is going to be not much of a factor (assuming the XB1 controller is about the same as the 360) I could use the DS4 pretty interchangeably with the 360 controller based off of first impressions.

Opinions subject to change as I get more time with it.

Mark Rubin of IW just confirmed the CoD res rumor.

Quote
Hey, been on the road last couple weeks so haven’t had a chance to update, but wanted to confirm that for Xbox One we’re 1080p upscaled from 720p. And, we’re native 1080p on PS4.  We optimized each console to hit 60 FPS and the game looks great on both. Still on the road, but glad to see the great reception to Extinction.  Can’t wait for next week's launch.

For MP3s, XB1 maybe too, but unclear.  Some confusing posts on twitter from some journalists, I really wouldn't read anything into it yet.

I hope PS4 ends up supporting Spotify or Pandora at least and I can use those as an alternative. I already have a Spotify sub, so I'd hate to have to double dip for Music Unlimited.  I could probably live without it as I didn't use it that often on 360, but I did find it rather nice to have with certain games...blah.

Also, in the bad news on PS4 front it sounds like you will need a subscription to Music Unlimited if you want to use custom soundtracks.  Seems it might not play MP3s either, which seems a bit foolish.

It's not just that the news was more negative against Xbox, it was that most of it was rumor-based and most of *that* turned out to be discredited or overblown.

No, most of it has turned out to be accurate.  The BF4 res was called exactly.  CoD hasn't been confirmed yet but also looks highly likely to be true.  Maybe peoples interpretations of what the res difference would mean etc was overblown but the rumors from the reputable sources were in fact not discredited or overblown.

That would be true if there wasn't a PC version. I'm ignoring the 360 version as that's being farmed out.   The advantage for Respawn going XB1 exclusive for their first game is more about reducing testing and programming requirements for a startup studio.  Though I suspect some of those decisions were made before it was known how similar PS4 and XB1 are architecturally. Co-marketing dollars probably help reduce a lot of risk too.   

As to being full exclusive v. timed there are probably not as many lost sales as one would think.  Historically games that were timed exclusive for a year or more haven't exactly sold gangbusters when finally released for the other platform.   Look at the original Bioshock as an example and its sales when it finally released on PS3.
996  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/XB1]Respawn's Titanfall on: October 30, 2013, 03:09:33 AM
Keep in mind the property is not MS exclusive just the first game, as of now of course, I'm sure if it does well MS will try and lock it up.
This is direct from Zampella


But I agree that EA would probably like to make it biannual if not annual like CoD was for Activision.

I will now though:   it's not getting Titanfall.

Boom.

You don't need to be negative about the PS4, it's your defensive, confrontational, and obnoxious attitude about Xbox that makes you a fanboy.

the way they keep talking about using the Microsoft's cloud computing architecture on the XB1 makes me wonder if it will be gimped for the other versions in order to make the XB1 version seem the best.

There's no reason they can't use Azure for the PC or even 360 version, heck even Sony or Nintendo could use Azure.

so Titanfall 2 going multi platform is a good thing unless MS decides to lock that up too

They'll need to deal directly with Respawn in that case, as I think their deal with EA was for one game only, and they retained the rights.  Less the exclusivity, I find it interesting that Vince and crew have lost control of their game to another publisher somewhat.
