Ok... the Gamestop thing is pretty funny.

I cancelled my Amazon PS4 Pre-Order, and Re-Pre-Orderd the PS4-WatchDogs Day One bundle.


I would have grabbed that one, but I'm still on the fence over getting WD on the PC or PS4. In the meantime, I'm sticking with my initial PS4 order and a copy of Infamous.

Lookin forward to it!

Oh... I'll be getting it for my PC too. PC is still my primary gaming machine. My daughter and I will be able to play together when she is home on leave.... and I'm sure I'll use it to learn how to get used to a controller. (I haven't had a console since the 1st Nintendo)

Apparently Gamestop and BB are actively steering people toward the PS4, lots of user reports in the past few days of people going into local Best Buys and Gamestop stores and being told the Xbox One is inferior and restrictive. Gamestop apparently has an unofficial policy to educate/push preorders of PS4 stuff if the customer mentions the Xbox One. This sort of jives with what I noticed driving by my local Gamestop, they took down all of the MS related marketing stuff and threw up posters of Vita, PS4 and Sony crap all over the front entrance.

Gamestop... I'm not surprised, since they are a used games dealer.

Best Buy... surprises me a little... especially since they are supposed to be opening "Microsoft Stores" inside them, soon.

That twitter battle on gamespot pretty much reflects the Amazon poll... in almost very country.

How many people go out to the store to get things they could get on Steam these days?

There's one major difference. Discs still mostly come with nasty rootkit type protection like Tages. Steam games can be cracked just as easily as disc base games nowadays, so there is no advantage to getting a disc. Just get a no Steam crack instead of a no cd crack.

Most of haven't bothered with that, because it's not like we've stopped buying games from steam, so there is no need. However, one of these days, I will go through my entire library, crack every game, and uninstall steam.

The only thing left for Sony to do is announce that PS4 is backwards compatible with xbox 360 games.

Hell, I'd buy two then!!!!

Technically... they could easily pull that off with Gaikai (Just like they are doing for PS3 games).

License-wise... probably not so easy. (Obviously, I'm talking about the 360 exclusives)

Even if that poll doesn't reflect how the sales will actually pan out... that's one helluva spankin'!

What makes it even more funny is that every time a Microsoft honcho gets interviewed... they somehow end up making things worse.

I don't care about "slightly better than Steam" DRM
It's not slightly better than Steam. Steam doesn't make you check in every 24 hours. I play completely offline (with the NIC OFF) and have to logon once a month at most. (And I hate that too)

Microsoft will serve its US base first. Sony will serve its Japanese first.
Amazon may have been told they were getting 100,000 Xboxes day one and 20,000 PS4s day one.

Actually, several sources say that Sony is serving the Western markets first this time, and may hold off on the Japanese launch due to such high demand in the West.

Just a friend telling me what he's seen without looking closely. Choose to believe it or don't. But the US was very heavily MS last gen, so even if it isn't a huge PS4 lead right now that's still a large, large change.

Well... a couple of things...

First, although it is not scientific, I'm pretty sure that poll is a world wide reflection, since it is on facebook.

Second, I've been reading a lot about pre-orders were fairly even for the last month (even some that were saying that the XBox One was edging over the PS4), until Sony's E3 press conference on Monday... and then the PS4 has been skyrocketing since.

I'm sure the XBox One will sell more than the Wii U, but I think they are toast compared to the PS4, unless they reverse their policies (which is not seeming too likely at this point).

This is exactly my feelings about PS4 brought to you by Maddox.

When he bitches about the UK and EU prices, he neglects to mention that those prices include VAT and probably some steep import tax... where the US price is without sales tax.

It's not the console manufacturers fault (MS nor Sony) that Europe has stupid high taxes... so, of course it gets passed on to their consumers.

Sorry, I'm not asking permission every 24 hours if I can play my game, I'm not paying a fee to use a netflix app, and I don't want Kinnect at all... ever.
