Really? I read the whole thing and found none, basically. They talk around a whole bunch of stuff, and they'll say that you can't just look at Sony's raw extra power on paper, only to admit a few paragraphs later that, yeah, we'll just have to see how the games run (because they know full damn well the PS4 will run equivalent looking games faster), and that you shouldn't just base off specs but need to look at benchmarks, thereby ignoring that gamers have been looking at specs and benchmarks for umpteen years, and that the higher specced card beats the lower specced cards in benchmarks 99% of the time, and is simply a better card.

It seems pretty obvious that MS is paying people to go say nice things about news stories online. A lot of the responses to that Fitness App thing they announced last week were hilarious to read.

The term Killer App was used WAY to often by random strangers excited about the the fitness program they announced. (last week?) I mean what gamer willing to spend $500 on this thing wouldn't be jumping at and down with excitement because they could do their Insanity workout's for only $100 a year on Xbox One?!

Who the fuck is excited by paying $100 a year for Xbox Live even if it comes with Fucking fitness program!? NOT GAMERS.

Someone offered this game new for 15 tokens on 99 Gamers so I snatched it up. I installed it then....still haven't played it. I hear there is some dlc coming, future cities or something. Bigger cities sure would be nice. And terraforming? You can really make your area right? It comes remade for the most part?

Definitely not buying a 180, still have a preorder in for PS4 but the closer I get to launch the less I feel like pulling the trigger. I have more than enough to play on my PS3 / PC and I'm not expecting anything to be exclusively on the consoles that I want to play.

Sigh, I like getting new toys but besides holding that ps4 controller for myself and using it at my new pc controller (if that is possible) I can't think of any reason I want to spend $400.

Plus that star citizen dog fighter should be out by December...and $400 buys me a lot of flight controls!

News Comments > Battlefield 4 Beta Preloads
18. Re: Battlefield 4 Beta Preloads Sep 30, 2013, 16:32 Tumbler
 
Got this baby preloaded. I'm mainly curious about controller support. Playing BF3 with a controller on the pc was odd. Some of the functions outside of the game weren't mapped at all so I felt like I needed to go back to my mouse between spawns.

I really hope this time you can play BF4 on the pc with a controller without any problems. I realize aiming will be harder and other players might have an advantage, I don't care. I've always liked doing the less twitchy things like planting mines and c4 and then blowing people up as they drive by

I finally cancelled my 180 preorder on amazon the other day, seems like i made the right choice. I cant fathom what ms is thinking is the attraction of buying this box. Its like they split up the design team that was 100% about games up to that point and said, "hey guys, we want this to have features for casuals and hardcores a like. We want this to be the one box you use for everything! Now make it happen!"

Problem being these guys know about gamers and what gamers want. So we get...uh snap! you can watch a movie at any moment when you're playing your game! Or you can workout! Gamers love working out! Or you can record tv (marketing here, tv companies dont want you to mess with their dvr business)...record gaming! 5 min...

Meanwhile the gaming side of the team is like, "WTF r u guys doing? We need to focus on games that will make people want to spend $500! We only have Ryse and Forza....so we only have Forza! Forget about that casual shit and spend money on games!"

Casual team: "We probably should add another subscription fee on top of gold for all this cool shit we are planning hunh?"

Gamer team: "WHAT!?! YOU'RE DOING WHAT?!?"

It's really hard for my mind to understand how you "Grow" a billion little tubes. Everything nano-tech related I've seen or read about always left me thinking of millions of tiny robots but it's more organic in nature? How do you grow a carbon nanotube if it's not organic...

I wonder if Tech Demo's would sell on the Xbox Live market place or PSN if they just focused on making a crazy detailed room to walk around. Just how good could the quality get if they didn't have to build all the game mechanics into the system and just gave people something to show off.

The Kinect / PS Eye if they were able to do some type of head tracking could make for some cool stuff that people might spend a few dollars on.

KICKSTARTER!!!!

If people want to spend real money to have some credits in GTA Online that is fine by me. Go nuts.

I look forward to stealing you yo shit.

Just like Star Citizen! Go ahead and spend that money! I'm just gonna board you and steal your ship! (notice the absence of slang because SC is classy like that)

But seriously the way they talk in GTA V (so far) is borderline racist. (And possibly accurate, I don't know)

I'm very interested to see AC4. Don't really care about the Assassin story anymore, the nautical theme looks like a lot of fun plus PIRATES!

MS would be smarter to just let people upload their own avatar's as pics this time around. It's hilarious they want to control the pictures people can see but have done so little to control what people act like and say online.

Playing GTA V last night there is a point where you can listen to a kid playing COD and the filth coming out of that kids mouth shocked my wife who was nearby. I tried to explain that actually just them making fun of people who play call of duty because listening to voice chat is pretty close to that.

Will be interesting to see if MS actually tries to make the live experience better this time around. (by sidelining people who act like little shit heads into a group of themselves)

we imagine it will spark outrage from some players that people will be able to buy cash rather than earn it in the game the honest way, by stealing it.

Hahahah, nice.

Eh, the time line for this change is a little disappointing. Seems rooted in making sure people have no choice but to buy the console version for the next 6 months. Maybe that is when a next gen version ships, or maybe the expansion comes out? I'll be trying the ps3 version shortly, will be interesting to see if that game is fun enough with the pc drm in the way.

Companies will likely just neuter the PS4 versions so that they have parity with the Xbox One versions anyways, Microsoft will put pressure on them to do so. They don't want DigitalFoundry having an article about how the PS4 version is superior for every single multiplatform game.

If the 180 somehow sells well this holiday season they might do this back last gen when the ps3 was shit for multi plat releases there were a lot of titles that ran terrible on the ps3.

If you're going to sell 70% of your game on the PS4 and the 180 is 30% you're not going ot give a fuck if you ruffle feathers with MS and 180 owners.
