Titanfall IS being released on all platforms. Not saying that means it'll break a billion, just seems like you missed that bit.

Yes, seems I did miss that part.

Titanfall: How no one cares but will still make a billion dollars

As an Xbox exclusive? not a chance.
I guess Halo, Gears of War don't count despite achieving all that?

Halo3 the biggest mover of them all made about 500mill... so no they didn't achieve that. There are in fact only 6 games in history to break the billion dollar mark and the only ones that did it as exclusives are Wii games. Frankly Titanfall has a snowballs chance in hell even if it was being released on all platforms.

In slightly different news, I finally caved and pre-ordered the Last of Us, because it looks effing brilliant.

Creston

This one had totally fallen off of my scope and then I kept hearing buzz about it watching E3 stuff yesterday and Metacritic has it at an amazing 96... and that's not a cheap 96 with only half a dozen reviews. So now I've got a potential wicked game on my radar that's coming out this week! ... Now I'm really in a dilemma as these days I buy games after a few months when the price drops.

Looking forward to see what Naughty Dogs gonna do with the PS4. That's one thing when people compare Xbox1 and PS4 exclusives, they forget some of Sony's biggest hitters haven't entered fray yet... though personally I hate the "exclusive BS" from both sides. I don't care that Xbox can play Metal Gear games now, have fun there great games, but it sure pisses me off that Dead Rising 3 won't come out on the PS4.

Slightly more telling poll:

UK tabloid poll

If you just want the results it's 79% PS4 to 21% xbox one - with 20725 votes cast as I write this.

Interesting to note afaik the UK is the only place 360 has beaten PS3.

You have that incorrect. US is the only region that 360 has outsold PS3. UK and Japan sales are greater for the PS3 than the 360.

PS3 has barely passed the 360 for Global sales totals. They are basically neck and neck at this point. And, 360 has been out a year longer.

Ya but how many of those 360s are second, third and fourth purchases to replace bricked consoles.

Well the Xbox does have one advantage over the PS4 that no one seems to notice... Downloaded games can be shared on the Xbox, within their limitations, something you can't do on the PS4.

Wow on the metacritic scores for 'The Last of Us'. Watching the E3 stuff yesterday there was a ton of hype on it... I seem to recall hearing a 20 hour game length, and it hits the shelves on friday, woot!

Some really interesting looking games shown yesterday. Destiny looked friken awsome, online co-op bliss. Dead Rising 3, MGS5, The Order and The Division. Mad Max and Battlefront showed pretty much nothing but something to keep an eye on... and of course stuff we already knew was in the pipe, Watch Dogs, Killzone, Second Son... Ryse had my interest peaked until the hand to hand combat started, lame.

BOOM! Sony just dropped the hammer. NO connection required, NO restrictions on used games.

... and probably just killed any purchase from me by going pay to play online

Sucks that DR3 is now going to be an Xbox exclusive, looked pretty sweet..

I guess I was hoping for another mall/strip experience. I realize that would pretty much be a redo of the last one, but it was fun...

3 reminds me too much of resident evil...


I didn't play the first two... the gritty, real, open world is what I like. I could see spending all my time simply playing it as a kind of survival mode... course if it only comes out on Xbox I won't play it ever.

A good consensus is flying a M7 or something like that. It is bigger than a fighter but smaller than a M2 or M1.

I fly in a M6 most of the time, because it is stronger than any fighter, but small enough to dock with any station. When I have to go into combat, I'll jump into my trusty M7 (which is fairly fun to fly into combat), giving orders to my fleet, and enjoying the combat. And if things get too hot, I can always call in my M7M and let it clear the whole sector with a few missile barrages (which is AWESOME).

Needless to say, I love the X series as a whole, and I look forward to X-Rebirth. Here's a fairly recent (and quite impressive) video showing how the game looks:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6seoryOhxk


I really liked using CAP ships and once I had them rarely went back to fighters, with the cockpit MOD of course. I probably logged the most time in my M6 Vidar I got in the terran plot. Fast, maneuverable and massive forward firepower. Course once I started cleaning out Xenon sectors I had to use an M7 at minimum and once the cash flow was rolling in I used my M2.

Will fire up AP at some point, but after putting 450 hours into TC recently I'm burned out... with all the uber greed in the industry sure is nice to see this kind of support.

On a side note just getting into Nexus Jupiter Incident, really sweet battles, really like how you can target different ship systems and build custom load outs on your ships. Old game but still holds up nicely graphic wise.

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.

Heh XBOX reveal in a minute forty...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=KbWgUO-Rqcw

Pretty much sums up my impression.

Oh and from the data mining convo that was going on here... this quote says it all, right from the horses mouth.

Eurogamer: Yep, the stuff on the magic of algorithm and data collection and so on - how are you dealing with people's privacy concerns about that? I mean, presumably you're using anonymous data to improve Kinect over time?

Phil Harrison: Yep. Microsoft has very, very good policies around privacy. We're a leader in the world of privacy, I think you'll find. We take it very seriously. We aren't using Kinect to snoop on anybody at all. We listen for the word 'Xbox on' and then switch on the machine, but we don't transmit personal data in any way, shape or form that could be personally identifiable to you, unless you explicitly opt into that

... so it's in the very first EULA you have to agree to to even use the XBOX?

"... PlayStation 4's 18 CU graphics core has 50 per cent more raw power than the GPU in the new Microsoft console"

"... Sony has used the die-space for additional compute units and ROPs (32 vs. 16 in One)"

So MS is banking on the Kinect gimmick selling more units than a higher spec'd gaming device, similar to how the lesser-powered Wii blew casual gamers away with the wiimote gimmick. Certainly the Kinect device costs money that could have instead been used for a better GPU.

Microsoft is banking on everyone buying the ONE so they can get COD DLC before everyone else... oh and rabid fanboyism.

Well watched the whole thing and my first impression seems correct. Microsoft innovated for non-gamers, odd for a game machine, seems the only thing Microsoft did for gamers was buy exclusives. From a purely video game standpoint, the PS4 looks to be the clear winner.


You have that impression for 2 reasons:
1) There really isn't much room for innovation for gamers, hardware-wise. We're at old technology. It's kind of like expecting your alarm clock to innovate. Things can be done here and there, but we're really at refinement, not truly changing. Just the point on the product curve we've reached
2) They didn't show game stuff here because this was a general public announcement. Want the game specific one? Wait for E3. Which is smart - these are the announcements that make the 6 o'clock news, so hit with them. Then, with this stuff exhausted, you can focus on games at E3 so people don't roll their eyes when you show them some NFL exclusive BS that's 100% identical to the ESPN BS you led off with

Here's the product curve I mean. Depending on where you sit, consoles are either at mature or decline, but no one will deny that they're past innovation.
That kind of goes for video games as a whole. People blame consoles exclusively, but we're at the point where graphics can't really get better, at least not in any way even remotely cost-effective, and there's little else to be done. Things like Occulus Rift may change that somewhat, but people keep saying "it looks like Crysis" for a reason - everything is incremental now, changes in lighting and the like mostly, and we won't ever really have the "holy crap!" moments we got the first time we saw ourselves leave bloody footprints in DN3D.

Well I maybe incorrect but I think E3 is just going to be about the games. IE the actual games themselves, not what the console was designed to do with the games, that would have been shown today. Where as the Sony presentation was pretty much all about what they did with the system to enhance the gaming experience... but like I said I could be wrong and Microsoft may have left all that for E3, we'll find out in 3 weeks.

Edit: Oh boy, Kinect 2.0. "It can read your heart rate!"

Smartglass, just what people care about.

Get to the games already.

Heh only caught the tail end of it but seems like a fail to me so far... seems XBOX ONE is all about 'exclusivity' where the PS4 announcement was all about innovation in the gaming experience... maybe I missed all the gaming features in the first 45min?
