That company has been making a 100 million dollars a month for 10 years and they're talking about a layoff? Corporate greed at its finest.

People love to take shots at MS but I'd like to see an example of an OS that Apple "cared" about for 12 years. FFS Unix systems don't even get that kind of "care" from the vendors.

I agree. And now you've got google with their Android and Chrome spyware OSes which will only be supported for as long as they can spy on you. haha!

Personally I don't give a flying fuck which console outsells the other. I don't make my purchasing decisions based on what other people buy. I own a PS3 because I like certain games on it, I own an XBox 360 because I like certain games on it, I own an Xbox One because I like certain games on it, and will own a PS4 in the future when the right game hits that I have to have. Oh yeah and I also have a gaming computer for games that the consoles don't have.

I hope both consoles are successful, which they will be; I wish the Wii-U was more successful. They both bring something a little different to the table and create a competitive atmosphere.

Laffman.......

Same here. It's the software that sells the hardware, not the other way around. So when I hear ps4 better than xbox one blah blah blah, I just have to laugh at the hipster mentality (i.e. clueless).

The anti-Microsoft hipsters are the only ones who care, other than maybe the tech tinkerer. Why don't the hipsters just switch to Mac OS X? Why not Linux? Both have been around a long time. That will be the only way that game devs will target those platforms. If the install base increases, it will be worth the cost of development. So why don't the hipsters just drop Windows all together and stop being hypocrites? If you hate MS all that much, surely you will be fine playing the games that run on Mac OS X and Linux. We're all a little tired of your constant senseless bashing and complaining. But remember the next time you buy a game for a pc running Windows, you're a hypocrite.

Oh, one more thing, just to let you know, OS X doesn't have your main crucial requirement for a computer: a start button. LOLOL

Google "consoles are" the 4th autocorrect is "ruining PC gaming."


just search thus forum. Prevailing belief is that graphics haven't advanced because games are written to 10 year old consoles. Even if ports are improved they're still not as powerful as if designed for a PC.

you really deny ever hearing this?

I don't agree with this. It's not that the console hardware is holding tech back, it's the fact that developing a triple A game nowadays cost a 1000 times more than it did back in the golden age of pc gaming. So when you're in business to make money, you have to choose the client base that will get you the most return, and that is consoles (and now even phones and tablets). Game developers back in the day created pc games with innovation and science. These days, it's based on "what will sell the most". You can't blame it on a freakin' box of hardware. It all comes down to money. I think something like the Oculus Rift is the closest thing we have to games being designed with innovation and science, but I have my doubts about that development platform as well. The golden days are over, so don't keep thinking it's just going to come back. I personally think something completely different is going to replace games in general when it comes technology driven entertainment. But I don't think it will be the Rift.

I smell a mass exodus brewing. Maybe the transition from being a game developer to a console maker isn't for everyone. ; )

Would be cool destructive if some developers made the full switch to Steam OS and left Windows in the dust, for their upcoming games
Fixed that for you.

There's nothing to gain from PC fragmentation. We're already a minority.

Yeah, it would be destructive for the developer.

Actually, the surface pro 2 is way more productive than both ipad and android. It's generally a laptop that's also a tablet and has a great high res video output for a large monitor. The click keyboard is actually really good. This is definitely more of a laptop replacement than a consumer tablet hence the price tag.

Aside from the low quality release, I think the game is a lot of fun! But I can understand people wanting to pay for quality. I get pissed too when I buy low quality shlt. But still, even with its problems, It's really kind of an amazing game. I know people didn't like the single-player so I think I'm the only one that thinks it's one of the best intros to a multiplayer game I've ever played. It's great if you're new to the series and to the genre! Sorry guys, but I'm having fun with this one.

This is ridiculous. Let's start suing game companies because there are too many clicks, the FOV is not up to par, and the voice acting sucks. lol

You'd think the old grinding top-down hack&slash click fests would be obsolete by now. Who would have thought that it would be someone's goty in 2013? I'm baffled. Anyway, congrats to the developer.

This is a cool idea. I respect the developers for trying to get this game stable even after they were told to release too soon. Good for them! Aside from the temporary defects, this game is loads of fun! I think I'll be playing this game for quite a while!

This game looks horrible. Why make a last gen game with last gen animation, graphics, and the same boring gameplay? Disappointed.
