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

One thing that Sony is doing that I like is bundling the PS3 with GTA V. That should entice people who have thought about buying a PS3 but haven't for whatever reason. Sony understands that you have to support the PS3 through the transition to next gen, because that will still be a breadwinner for them until the PS4 gets settled in. It won't put up huge numbers for them, but it will definitely help. And we know GTA V will be a huge seller no matter what platform.

Last night's E3 really was a rout. Sony realized what Microsoft simply refuses to: that online backlash cannot be ignored, and that consumers are simply not willing to have consumer-hostile terms dictated to them. Sony told its customers they were trusted and valuable, that it wasn't automatically assumed everyone's top priority was piracy. I expect it's an unhappy day at Microsoft offices today.
Arrogance and stupidity has been the downfall of many companies.

Also all the things the say the One can do with your TV; guess what? I can already do it with my 360/Kinect and it sucks! If you have FiOS it will link up with your 360 and you can watch live TV and tell it by voice to change the channel. Big freaking deal.
Never know, they could turn out to be some pretty cool features.

The TV stuff doesn't really interest me either right now as don't really watch much TV in the man cave. But I wouldn't rule out putting an X1 in my living room eventually if it turns out to be the real deal.

Ok but why would you need that? Unless you like yelling at your TV to change the channel every time it is kind of lame. I personally don't see the benefit of incorporating the TV guide.

I think it's going to be more than just voice commands. Plus the whole interface is supposed to be smarter and simplified. Some rumors say they could eventually add live TV and DVR service to compete with cable and satellite. They want it to be an all in one solution, it's not there yet but in a year or two it could be.

People scoffed at the idea of the iPad before it was released, now look at where tablets are. Just saying you never know. People are awfully quick in wanting to declare a winner or loser in all this. It's only just begun.

Ok fair enough.

But as a gamer would you not just want them to make a gaming console not some hybrid machine?

I use xbox for online gaming and most my friends do too. Its going to take more than 100 to steer me away from it (evidence being I pay for xbl).

I will consider it though

I agree Xbox Live is still the feather in their cap. PS has a long way to go in that department.

I'm leaning more toward the PS4 myself, like I said the TV stuff really doesn't do much for me right now because of where I have my consoles hooked up. But in the future who knows. I wouldn't rule it out down the line. Right now all I want is a gaming machine. I think a lot of people are in that same boat and the PS4 will have the early advantage. MS will be in catchup mode at the start no doubt.

Just get the Wii U and be done with it!

I started a post on this last night that amounted to not likely and would be leaning towards the PS4 if I was to get a console early after release. However after seeing that Dead Rising 3 was going to be an exclusive as well as a launch title, well suffice to say that was a huge selling point for me.

So far the only promising PS4 exclusive I've come across is Infamous Second Son which doesn't come out until early 2014.

Surprised myself but I think I'm going to preorder the Xbox One pretty soon and get the PS4 early next year.

Xbox One: Amazon US sells out of pre-orders, good luck buying one at launch - Pocket-lint

For all the bitching people sure snatched up those pre-orders.

I put myself on the list to be notified when more come available though it looks like Best Buy is still accepting pre orders. If I was to get it day one it would depend on Dead Rising 3 being available. I was actually surprised how much better Microsoft did then Sony with the exclusives though it seems similar to last generation as the 360 had a much better library early on then the PS3, though eventually the PS3 seemed to come out on top in terms of exclusives.

Regardless I'm starting to think I need to find a better paying job to get all the toys I have my eyes on (ie desktop gaming PC, Xbox One, PS4, and a new 1080p 50 inch flat screen, not to mention games).
