Just hearing the crowd and the reactions of people when they've announced the used game stuff was awesome and should send a pretty clear message to Microsoft.
I'm not saying the freedom Sony appears to be giving their customers isn't a great thing, but you do know they often pack these kinds of audiences with their own cheering/applause boosters.
Judging it from the reaction of the people and the preorders being sold out already for the PS4 but not for the xbone I am pretty sure Sony did not need any "cheer" or "applause" signs on this E3 conference.


Totally unofficial poll, but the numbers are rather telling...


M$ should change the name to Xbox Done!

As in, history, toast!

I don't get why people are so happy and excited that MS messed up so badly. This is not a good thing for gamers. Like Intel fanboys being smug about AMD's lacklustre chips then wondering why the Intel prices are high and performance increments so little each release. So much love for Sony just because all they did is start charging for multiplayer?

Err I don't follow your logic, of course this is good for gamers. Microsoft is too big to be forced out of the market, they will have to respond somehow and it's becoming clear that they need to give people what they want, not just what they think they can give them. This can only be good for the consumer in the long run, this is actual competition at work.

In all seriousness Verno, I wish that were true, but M$ has been flat out not listening to the concerns and screams of customers for a very long time now. They somehow feel or think they are invincible, and their stance on backwards compatibility and many other aspects are all a part of that attitude. I mean, look at the Win 8 fiasco with the Start Menu being gone. During Beta people screamed and begged that they add it back. What did we get? Nothing!

I personally hope they crash a hard death if that is what it takes to get them to stop being assholes about their business practices.

I sure hope the sales numbers will tell the same story.

I find it sad that gaming and the industry are at a point that "it plays used games" is a point people get excited about.....it is like announcing that you are able to adjust brightness and FOV....they took a page from the airlines, and now everything is ala carte.

It is sad, but I think this goes a lot deeper than that. It really coming down to people being told what to do and what they canít do.

And thatís where many are drawing the line. This situation always reminds me of what it would be like if you were trying to sell your car and now all the sudden the manufacture says oh no, we get a cut out of this too. Same principle. For the life of me I canít understand why the publishers feel that they have a right to make more profit off a game they already made money from in the first place.

To me this is just morally wrong and should not be allowed to happen ever.

This is how Sony killed the Sega Saturn years ago when the guy walked on stage and quoted 299 and walked right back off. Totally fucked Sagas day up. This is history repeating itself all over again. Bye, bye M$!!

After watching the Trailer, the Heavy Gear guys trying to launch their game should just hang it up now. Because they have no chance in hell of competing with that.

And its an EA game, so it wont be coming anytime soon to my pc.

LOL, I was about to say something in the same regard, Iím one of those who quit playing it after one week. And youíre right, itís a grind fest to try and get level up and get better Tanks and gear. I liked the game, but hated how the model works.

nope, not in a 100 years it wont. they lost this battle before it got started. Went from MMO, F2P PVP to oh, sorry we are adding SP Missions, not a campaign, just missions. Utter fail!!

Now they are going to shopw this off at E3 hoping to gain some hype. but in the end, its a lost cause.

Edit: OK, let me edit my rant and instead be helpful

Huh. So firstly, Stardock failed to push the Update Info aka CHANGELOG to Steam (Awesome work there) so I got a rogue update that I would have rather liked to block for a month.

This is what Update 1.5 does
http://forums.sinsofasolarempire.com/445283

Secondly, it breaks all mods (and as such, I won't touch Sins because Mods are the only reason to play this vs AI ,p)
Thirdly, it breaks all saves....


And apparently, this "DLC" is bringing more modding features into the game, so mods should benefit in the end. That's however not really doing much for me seeing as it just broke my ongoing Enhanced 4X 1.5 game on Rebellion 1.1

Is there any way to downgrade back to 1.1 ?

Quit your fricking whining dude, it took me only 30 mins to update my mod for sins and get it working again. The rest of the modders will get their mods updated as well. I swear, people have nothing better to do then whine about shit.

I actually don't care about the old Start Menu either, it's just what people find comfortable so they're upset about it. Metro Start wouldn't be so bad if Metro in general made any sense in terms of user interface. Awful use of available space, totally supplants traditional resource management and the jarring juxtaposition between desktop/Metro are what really peeved me.

I'll be interested to see how they made adjustments for the bizarre visual warp when you moved between interfaces. One user actually described it to me as if a virus had taken over his system, I had to LOL.

So, tell me something Verno, you say you don't care about the start button, but are you actually using Win 8? If not then you are full of it until you actually are using the OS and feel the pain of trying to navigate around finding things that were so simple before the start went missing.


And explain to me this, not just you in general but everyone. why is it that I need Metro on a server OS? The simple answer is that I don't. Its utterly stupid to have Metro on a server. Just another sure sign of Microsoft's failures and their inability to listen to the customers concerns.

I work in IT distribution:

Today, 7 months past October 26th 2012:

Windows 7 sales: 18,000 / week
Windows 8 sales, less than a dozen.

you read it here folks. that is the truth. When Microsoft writes headlines that they sold 3 million units, blah blah blah, that's just selling to sit on store or warehouse shelves, they are not going to new customers. Windows 8, history repeats itself with Win Me. Sadly though, Win 9 will be more of the same, there is no turning back, they will dicate their way through things, as all top corporations do today.

I think Win 8.1 is a noteable effort on MS part, and needed, obviously, as they can see the reports I wrote above. Just make Win 8 touch an option. NO ONE HAS TOUCHSCREEN MONITORS, you IMBICILES AT REDMOND!

Where are you getting those numbers from? I've been having similar discussions here at work and would love to shove this down someone throat here at work. but I need a solid resource first.

No idea what a cloth map in this would have. It's not exactly Ultima.

Thats what i was thinking...maybe one popular map? Still seems like a waste of cloth.

Exactly, all the maps are random or self generated. but a map of what they think the know Sins Universe looks like would be kind of cool.

Blizzard is turning into a profit only shit hole company. The sheer amount of money this company has and makes, and they only had 100 people on this project. They should have 200 people handling this project. This does not bode well for them and their rep as a company which has been getting hammered lately. Pretty pathetic!!

First of all, already people within the gaming industry are no longer calling anything "PC Ported" in regards to the new consoles, the Xbox One and PS4 for the very simple fact, they are all PC architecture and nothing is being ported. Though, admittedly, that term may stick around for sometime. Xbox One's SDK has Windows 8 UI libs built in. This also might be true for the PS4. Microsoft needs the Xbox Ones momentum to help fuel the Windows 8 / Windows Phone push. Expect more games than ever before for your Windows 8 PC. With mobile devices chewing into console and desktop markets, console publishers need Windows 8 revenue stream more than ever before.

Apparently you did not read the interview with Harrison the other day when asked about supporting the pc and games. his comments were in regard to some stupid Solitary game. So yea, they are thinking about pc gaming alright.

Bungie sold their soul long ago when they compromised themselves to M$ and the Xbox only exclusive. I see no reason for them to make any changes now when it comes to putting this on the PC. In truth, I'm really surprised this doesn't have Xbox None written all over it.

No pc version = no sale for me.

uh... you know they don't work for MS anymore right? that's why this is also coming out on ps4. as for why, well, pc would be another market they can sell to. more money is good, and aside from OS issues, the hardware between consoles and pcs have become virtually identical, so it shouldn't be that difficult to make a pc port.

Yes, I know that. My point is, they sold the pc out once before what makes you think they wont again?

A billion is quite ridiculous, but a big jump isn't out of the question as China is considering lifting its ban on game consoles. Of course that's most likely to favor Sony over Microsofts NA centric device.

you would be wrong In that assumption, China despises Japan. Most likely they are favoring the Xbox. but M$ is out of their minds, this unit will not reach that goal. if it does it will take 10 years to do it.

For some reason, I keep thinking M$ had the same thoughts about Win 8 and look where that POS OS is getting them. Useless and hated!

The unfortunate truth of all of this, we all want it to fail, but all the fucking fanboies will run out for the midnight sales and buy it up. I hate Consoles, and I Hate this one even more than any of them. M$ has done nothing but lie to pc games about how they are committed to making and supporting pc games when all along all the really meant and were saying through their lying teeth is they are only committed to supporting the Xbox. fuck them!!
