i tried using 2 controllers to see what the other player has when selecting 'band'....apparently there are vocals...not sure how it works,what microphone you use,but they are there...the words and the player 2 stuff scrolls across the top
12842  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / SONY charging publishers for DLC on: March 20, 2009, 05:02:12 PM
can this be right?,and if so do you agree with it?

Publishing sources have told MTV Multiplayer of Sony’s previously un-reported new “PlayStation Network Bandwidth Fee”.

The charge is stated to be 16 cents for every Gigabyte (GB) downloaded off of the PSN, which is of course proving unpopular with publishers.

You can certainly see why publishers might have to think twice before publishing content on the PSN, Microsoft is not reported to be charging publishers for downloadable content, although they do charge users a subscription charge for the Xbox Live Gold membership.

One source, who wished to remain anonymous to prevent any issues with Sony had the following to say;

    “It definitely makes us think about how we view the distribution of content related to our games when it is free for us to do it on the web, on Xbox Live, or any other way — including broadcast — than on Sony’s platform. It’s a new thing we have to budget. It’s not cool. It sucks.”

The blog also states a good example of the costs of creating and sharing a demo over the PSN;

    “Publishers already pay costs for creating a demo, a process that can run six figures. Sony’s fees add a new expense. For a demo that is sized at exactly 1GB and is downloaded one million times, that would add an extra $160,000 that Sony is now charging and that Microsoft isn’t. That’s what could scare publishers from placing content on the PS3.”

The charge is lifted for free content (demos etc) after 60 days, for paid content (map packs etc) the charges rack up until the day it is removed from the store.

Bookmark and Share

1GB downloaded 1 million times =$160,000

okay,i guess SONY have to make their money somewhere,but surely this will just add to the 'DLC not coming to PS3' fire

Quote from: CeeKay on March 20, 2009, 04:37:30 PM

cool, thanks.  I'm really on the fence about picking this one up after looking at the song list.  there's only about 14 songs I'm interested in, so if they were available as DLC it would only cost me 26 bucks or so as compared to 60 bucks.

i think the next music game i will pick up will prolly be the Beatles Rock Band,i dont mind Metallica,but i think the Beatles one i can be sure of liking all the songs on there..unless it has 'Guest' bands..which i prefer it didnt,and god help them if they get these 'guest' bands to cover the songs

I admit to being a bit lost at all the past RE continuity being referenced. Probably won't get back to this for a while with the tourney in full swing this weekend.

Amateur it is for me then when i get it,i found the demo rock solid!!!

here you go CK

Alice In Chains:No Excuses
Metallica:Sad But True
Metallica:Seek and Destroy
Queen:Stone Cold Crazy

you can also choose between Single or Band,but i had to have two controllers connected for the Band,so not sure how that worked

and you can go 'Backstage' and create your own player
12847  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Guitar Hero:Metallica Demo now up on: March 20, 2009, 04:08:49 PM
at least it is on XBL,havent checked PSN(and they dont usually get stuff on a Friday,unless they got it yesterday)

its not bad,you get 5 difficulty settings,beginner being just wammy bar controls,no buttons needed

4 songs,2 by Metallica one by Alice in Chains and i forget the last(sorry)

you also get a choice between Lead or Bass guitar

my Aerosmith guitar green button is a bit knackered so i have even more reason to suck

but it pretty much plays out like you expect

So, it has almost been a full week since I actually started playing my new 360 and I'm thoroughly enjoying it so far.

Fallout 3 - This is one of the main reasons I bought a 360.  I bought the game yesterday and haven't opened it yet.  My wife and 18 month old daughter are going out of town Sunday through Friday and I intend on playing the hell out of this one.  Any advice for someone completely new to the game? 


dont forget that you can change the difficulty anytime you want while playing the game....for some reason i was always getting my ass handed to me for the first few hours out in the wasteland..knock it down when or if you have problems then knock it back up later on

i downloaded the hub of it all as well,but at 800 points i think i am out,me and Myto are looking to play in a little co-op if she wants to get this then i will give in and pay because then i know i am actually gonna be playing the games

the UK hasnt got Scrabble,because its Mattel i think that license the game outside of the US..and also we have different spelling of some words as you know..neighbour icon_wink

i was pissed off with how long it gave me to trial connect 4,i swear it was under 30 seconds..whereas Peggle last week gave me quite a while to play the trial of that

and i think the Jungle theme for the room is the best,LOL

'Sorry!' is coming soon it says

have you made an actual account with EA? and linked the gamertag,some games need this for some reason(mainly PSN i think),Timesplitters 3 needed this and thats when i did it originally,never had any problems since with EA games,except i cant take photos in the multiplayer of Battlefield:Bad Company,and therfor i cant get the 'Take 3 Pictures' achievment disgust

12853  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fable 3 kinda announced on: March 16, 2009, 12:02:34 AM
i thought Fallout 3 was a hell of a lot better for it

i suppose Americans can tell the difference from someone that comes from say..washington than someone who comes from California...for me,the only difference i can tell between American accents is:
The south no offense intended but even here in the UK they have been Stereotyped
New York
and all are prolly greatly exargerated because of TV and Movies...i cant really say apart from those accents i could tell any others apart,so i was thinking that it may of been the same for Americans listening to the English Accents in the game

but i didnt even think the U.S/NA would of got a different version than us(us being UK,not U.S icon_wink)shame if they did-if it is as AA says,all the same voice type

12854  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii price.....increase? on: March 15, 2009, 05:46:22 PM
thank you Tebunker and Canuck for telling me what i had already quoted in the first post

With the British pound continuing to depreciate

doesnt change the fact that Nintendo are still the only company doing this here

they made $995 million profits in April -June last year..which by August had overall gone to $6billion(The Wii that is,overall $12billion)

Microsoft recorded a first time ever Profit for the xbox 360 at the end of July 08

and SONY are predicting that the PS3 will turn profit in 2009

Still sticking to what i say...greedy icon_lol

EDIT:i think it may of been better,to announce a price cut for their console world wide(which is overdue no matter what) but say that the UK will be staying the same in price because of this
12855  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fable 3 kinda announced on: March 15, 2009, 02:29:00 PM
i can understand your comments about it being less of a RPG than other games,i myself see the game as i 'Light RPG',maybe Lionhead are/were trying to get a wider crowd to play the game,some that dont want to be bogged down by stats etc

it will fall into the catorgry of RPG,...because mainly you are playing the role,and that role Grows while you play,there are a lot of games that get put in the RPG crowd when they dont really belong there,this isnt the biggest case..but Fable 2 wasnt that different really from Fable 1,it feels more like an RPG with a bit of hack and slash thrown in

Did you know that every third person in Albion looks and sounds exactly the same?

can't say i really noticed,but they all had a lot of different English vocals that may of sounded the same to you(maybe),but there were Liverpudlian accents,Mancunian accents(i thank you),Cockneys,Geordies... did you play Oblivion?.,..that was more or less exactly the same(same voices i mean not english dialects),although that is still one of the best RPGs out there,and thankfully Bethesda went all out with Fallout 3

i do think though 'Detest' is a too bigger word for you not liking the game,although i am probably the same on some subjects(how can anyone like Call of Jaurez for that game to get a sequel)

Quote from: Tebunker on March 14, 2009, 03:56:58 PM

Metali - When you did the conversion did you use Dollars to Pounds or Yen to Pound. Remember, Japanese Company, and if the Yen is much stronger versus the Pound, versus when it released, it costs them much more to export. This is not greed, it's smart business regardless of the company who does it. They have a business plan that has a specific gross margin and they aren't willing to let the massive fluctuation in currency that has been happening over the past eight months affect that. If you want to blame something you can point to the world economy and the weakening pound. Yen to Dollar hasn't changed too much but I bet if it did they'd adjust pricing here as well. If I were you I'd be a lot more upset/worried that my currency is worth a lot less now than it was just six months prior.

yeah that is their excuse saying the Pound is weak at the moment.... the fact that the system is long overdue a price cut doesnt help matters,a machine that is head and shoulders above its competition in sales and SONY,another Japanese Company aren't doing the same,(and there are rumours that the PS3 will be cut down in price soon)...and i think its safe to say the PS3 costs (a lot)more to make than the Wii

the 360 will be £70 cheaper than the Wii now,thats nearly two full priced games

£30 for a Wiimote
£15 for Nunchuck
(not to mention another 15 for a classic controller)

nope,i stick to what i say,....greedy icon_smile

its sounds absolutely terrible...good god if i have to hear the Big Daddy pounding footsteps all the way through the game i think i am going to scream

i have to say GTA4,its the city that wins it,its just so impressive..for whats its worth the fighting and shooting in GTA4 is a lot easier than past GTAs,past GTAs were a bit annoying...some people liked the upgrade,some people didnt,i liked it,but i think it may of accounted for GTA4 being my first GTA game i have completed

i am looking forward to Godfather II,i loved the first..

hoping for Saints Row 3 to be announced as well

but all those games you have listed are all great games(stick Mafia on there as well  icon_wink )
12860  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Review] Resident Evil 5 on: March 13, 2009, 02:39:16 PM
nice review

a few questions

is the 9 hr run time including the mercenary mode?,its just that you say the game is devided into 6 chapters at roughly an hour each,and that doesnt add up,unless we are including the merc mode

is there a difficulty selection?(easy,normal,hard)

DLC..does anyone have any idea what this could be?,it would help that run time if it was an extension to the story,but knowing Capcom it will probably be more outfits for Sheva,like SF4 has been doing recently

dont worry,its UK only

from Kotaku

With the British pound continuing to depreciate, Nintendo has announced that they will be increasing the price they offer the Nintendo Wii to UK retailers, who could pass the increase on to consumers.

While the recommended retail price of the Nintendo Wii in the United Kingdom will remain at £179.99, Nintendo is increasing the price they charge retailers to stock the console by £18-20.

"Due to the severe and continuing depreciation of the pound, we are, unfortunately, having to raise our trade price to UK retailers of Wii hardware," said the company. "The price that they then offer to consumers is, of course, up to the retailers."

Video game consoles have traditionally been very low profit margin items, with retailers relying on sales of software or bundled items to increase their margins. Nintendo has left it up to the retailers whether or not they raise the price of the console accordingly. Now retailers have a choice: raises the price to raise their margins, possibly alienating customers, or sucking up the lost profit and bravely soldiering on.

I suppose Nintendo can hardly be blamed for adjusting in the face of the global economic situation, but they could have taken a bit of the pressure off of the retailers by hiking the retail price accordingly. I guess we all have to do what we have to do to survive in these rough times.

for those who are unknowing,at the moment the price of the consoles are as follows

360=£130(I think the Elite is now £200)
Wii=£180..and as said will be going to £200

you all know what side my bread is buttered on(even though bread doesnt have 3 sides  disgust )...feels like Nintendo are getting greedy if you ask me

wheres that Avatar/Gif with the Nintendo money being made?

ATM according to Currency Convertor £200 =$276

i'm all for a Fable 3,just hope the main story is somewhat longer than Fable 2.. everything else i thought was spot on about FABLE 2,especially the gameworld...and i loved the fact that you could see other people playing like a kinda budget version of a MMO...imagine that in GTA4 or maybe Fallout 3

Spoiler for Hiden:
as the 3rd DLC is to let you 'continues the story of Fallout 3 beyond the original ending' according to Wiki

As Caine mentioned, the graphics and controls are decent enough.  The repetition killed it for me, though.  I was bored way before I got to the end of the demo.  And for, what $20?  $30?  It just didn't seem worth it to me.

Yup, as I posted in the PC gaming thread on this the cost is far too much for me. Just no way a 3-4 hour arcade game is worth that amount of points. I might, and I emphasize the might, have bitten if it was only 800 pts.

3-4 hrs is bad,i had my suspicions when i saw one of the Achievements was to finish the game under 80 minutes
