I'm probably one of the few that like Alien 4 better than 3. Ripley being a predatorily hybrid clone was kind of fun.

Don't get me wrong, though... on the whole, they were both shit, IMO.

Never heard about that one... but now that I'm actually buying a console (PS4), I probably will be more in tune with console exclusive announcements.
Yeah, I just got on the PS4 pre-order bandwagon too. I have both a X360 and PS3 and have many pros and cons about each, but between the XOne and PS4 I feel that Sony has done a better job this time.

This will technically be the first console I personally ever owned. My daughter had a Playstation 1 and XBox when she was a kid... but I pretty much never touched them for more than 5 minutes. My parents had a Nintendo for some weird reason when I was in my early 20's... so I played that some, but mostly played at friend's houses. Same thing back in the Atari 2600 days... played at friend's houses.

I've mostly gamed on computers since the Apple II days. (Even prior to that if you include text gaming on an IBM 5100)

So, this is a big step for me, since consoles never were my thing. But I am buying the thing for more than just gaming... which is weird that the XBone is "promoting that"... and I don't want one of those!

After becoming embroiled in the recent PRISM fiasco, Microsoft has said that it would fight to block any government access to Kinect user data.

I'll block it too... by not having a Kinnect in the first place.

Also, that Play Value video(s) is pretty MS Slanted, and it's Endorsed / funded by XBoxLive.
FYI

They were also uploaded in 2009... So their dig at PS3 sales is no longer accurate, and the claim that the best hardware specs = probably fail, also doesn't take into account that the xbone and ps4 have the same instruction set and both have decent 3rd party support... Which tilts things in favor of the better hardware (PS4).

While we were already familiar with how the new Kinect is nearly ten times more precise than the old version, he showed off the ability for Kinect 2.0 to be able to scan your body and put it on an avatar in the game in full 3D, even going so far as to being able to transpose your expressions onto the avatar,

Even when you don't ask it to! I wonder if it can scan/render all your fingers, or say, just the middle one????


I don't know... I'm sure some fat sweaty nerdy teenager with a pizza face, buck teeth, and birth control glasses thinks it's a cool feature to show themselves to the world within a multiplayer game!

They'd also make good targets in in a multi-payer shooter... but in this PC day and age that would be considered "bullying" or maybe even a "hate crime". Rolleyes

Getting a Xbone at launch is like getting a lump of coal in your stocking at Christmas. The lump of coal might be better.

I just can't believe the amount of people that are still buying / pre-ordering the "LowerSpecced-Spycam-Adbox-with-paywall-to-Netflix-for-$100-more".

I mean, wtf?

I dunno, a real cinephile wouldn't watch those movies on Netflix streaming anyways: the artifacting can be horrendous.

This.

Netflix is great to watch old tv shows and some movies that you don't necessarily want to own. The image is way more clear than when I was a kid and most of our broadcast tv channels wouldn't come in very clear. So, it's good enough.

Anything I really care about.... I buy the Bluray (Or DvD, in the case of an old TV show that has no bluray)

That said, I also wouldn't consider myself a cinephile either. I don't think a real cinephile would even bother with Netflix.

I hope they make it. It looks interesting... a hybrid point-and-click adventure game with 1st person view.

For cross platform games I guess devs will have to program for the lowest common denominator anyways, so even though the PS4 is more powerful it is not going to be used.

Actually... Ubisoft said AssCreed4 will look better on the PS4... I posted this yesterday, so I'll post it again:

----------
An anonymous Dev says that that the PS4 is 40% more powerful than the XBone, and the difference is NOTICEABLE

Ubisoft says AssCreed4 will look better on the PS4
----------

It appears that some devs will take advantage of the PS4's horsepower, that aren't just making PS4 exclusives.

Microsoft may be upgrading the specs of the Xbox One before its release

12GB of DDDR3 isn't going to help much. Yeah it makes up for the bloated 3 OS's taking up 3GB of the 8GB and puts RAM availability more on par with the PS4... but anyone that knows squat about GPU's, knows that the same GPU with DDR5 is about twice as fast as the one with DDR3. Memory bandwidth is king for GPUs. Then add to the fact that the PS4 has 25% more GPU cores... and not even the alleged clock bump Microsoft may do will help much (in comparison).

Can't wait to play it!

In other news... since there is no "Evening Consolidation"...

An anonymous Dev says that that the PS4 is 40% more powerful than the XBone, and the difference is NOTICEABLE

Ubisoft says AssCreed4 will look better on the PS4

I think that's enough XBone smackdown for today!

I picked up a shitload of games on both Steam and GOG. 18 on Steam and 6 on GOG, with another 12 or so still on a wish-list on GoG for future sales.

Dunno when I'll have time to play them... but I have them. Heh.
