Can we get a new Battlefront game already!? And will they revive 1313?

Re: New Games on the Horizon (the video game thread)

what kind of strategy? like x-com?
civ games?

if you want older games, gog.com has a ton of great ones, though the gfx quality isn't always super awesome. they're got heroes of might and magic 3 complete among other things.

Limited Amazon-exclusive Madden 25 special edition includes free Sunday Ticket subscription | Joystiq


Quote:
Since Madden NFL 25 skipped 12 years is named to commemorate the series' 25th anniversary, it shouldn't be surprising that EA Sports recently unveiled a special Anniversary Edition. What is a little surprising are the contents of the special edition, which includes a free one-year subscription for DirecTV's NFL Sunday Ticket service, allowing fans to watch every out-of-market NFL game throughout the season.

EA Sports tells us that the subscription is limited to the NFL Sunday Ticket computer, tablet and mobile service. Additionally, those who are able to receive DirecTV service in their area can get $10 off per month for the service, which starts at $225, as well as a free subscription to the higher-tier NFL Sunday Ticket MAX.

I think I'll be ordering this.

edit2: **** thinking about it. Already pre-ordered. They better come through with that NFL ticket or it's getting returned.

I can't get over how many people (Xbox fanboys/girls included) have already thrown it under the bus and said they're switching over to PS4. I'm a Sony fangirl so I was planning on going for the PS4 anyway, I just don't understand all of the hate.

Is it the TV thing? Is it because when they unveiled it they only pushed sports games? (I heard this complaint a lot) Is it because indie developers can't publish their games on the Xbox One? Seriously, I don't get it.

One dagger for me is that they reporting it won't play used games. That is ridiculously.

Good bye Game Stop.

Nope. Always been a PS guy, I thought the presentation looked good yesterday until one of my coworkers (an Xbox fan) said that all the motion control stuff is already available through the Kinect. Either way the only thing that interested me on the presentation was the whole 15 exclusives thing. If none of them interest me I doubt I'll ever get one. Definitely leaning towards the PS4 anyway, even though none of the 4's new features are gamechangers for me.

Used games or games from previous Xbox consoles? It's not backwards compatible with previous Xbox games, but it's a different platform as well. This was my friends status update this morning.

Why is backwards compatibility important? Expecting backwards compatibility for PPC-based 360 games on x86-based XboxOne is not happening.
It's accurate.

It's accurate.
Not Xbox 360 games.

More like, "I just bought this Xbox One game from Gamestop" used.

That's what's not happening. Not backwards compatibility.

Currently, PS3 isn't backwards compatible either, you can't play PS2 games, but you can go out and buy a used copy of Madden 2013 and play it freely.

It's accurate.

I meant used games.


It has been confirmed that the "restriction" on used games means that Microsoft will charge a fee for you to play a used game, much like EA's now defunct "Online Pass" deal. So you will need a Live subscription, pay for the used game you want to play and then pay an extra, as yet undetermined, fee to play your game. As I understand it, this "pass" is only good for your account so no letting your friends borrow the used game and play it unless they also pay the fee for their account.

Plus who cares about backwards compatibility. I never understood that with folks if yo uwant play a Gamecube game just play it on the game cube not the Wii.
