3 biggest PS4 1st party games: Knack, Killzone, Resogun
3 biggest from Xbone: Forza 5, Dead Rising 3, Ryse

Xbox One wins the first round, unfortunately, on quality and selection of games alone. That is what you want in the end. Games.

The only decent titles there are Resogun, Forza and Killzone so yeah no, I'd say if anything the PS4 wins. Not that it's really much of a contest because both launch lineups are leaning heavily on third party stuff.

And the PS4 can do 1080p on the third party stuff. Narf!

Mmm, your opinion being completely valid because you have played how many of these games?

I've been playing Killzone on PS4. Took me a long time to get semi-used to the controller in a FPS, but the game itself is actually quite fun. Levels are large, with about half being very open like Crysis. (The original, not the two corridor shooter sequels.) The graphics are a mix of 3 year old PC stuff and new stuff, so they look pretty good. Certainly better than some PC FPS games. (Rage!)

Resogun is basically a FTP arcade shooter with a bunch of cool graphics effects and a ton of physics particles. Not my thing.

Knack? I cannot bring myself to play. Not my style of game.

Ryse, Dead Rising 3, Forza? NOT OUT YET! So nobody wins shit because you can't even compare them yet.

Whilst super for them, it means sweet FA to me and many others who really wanted to see HL3 instead of a remake of a 15 year old game we can all play blindfolded made with an outdated engine - and they're charging for it. Knock yourself out however.

I'm not here frequently, but I don't think I've ever seen you say anything positive that wasn't immediately overshadowed by a really negative comment. You're just a big bag of hate, aren't you?

They are selling content on day 1 for $20 (Gold edition). I can't justify giving money to a company that does this. Small things don't bother me, but it's a mini expansion and they want $$$ for it. Remember the holiday sale is right around the corner and this will no doubt receive a discount.

So what? It's a huge game, unprecedented level of content even for an Assassin's Creed game. Let them sell the $20 season pass, you really don't need to buy it, you're getting a great game with 50+ hours of content for a good asking price. I was really bored with the AC games but this reinvented the franchise.

This. I made it halfway through Brotherhood and gave up on the series. I tried Liberty on the Vita and it was OK, but not good enough for me to finish it. This game is actually making me want to play it.

Got the PS4 version, because WTF else am I going to use it for?

That's the point of it. The Fed can't steal the value of them by inflating away the value. That's precisely why the coins are valuable. It's a decentralized currency. We don't want your stinking regulations!!!

I'm not really sure why the anti-government types have it out for the federal reserve. We haven't had unhealthy inflation in this country since the 70s. What other federal agency can claim 30 years of success?

The interesting thing here is that technology has created a speculative instrument that it is impossible to regulate. How long before hedge funds start encoding their assets in a similar way? Next time Wall Street tanks our economy, we might not even know who did it.

Except the federal reserve isnt a Federal agency, its a private entity.

One made up of the very banks responsible for tanking our economy several times. I guess they have been as "successful" as most government agencies, which is to say, not.

I plugged mine in by hdmi. It downloaded the update in about one minute. And one minute later,I was playing killzone....btw, resogun rocks ass. And why is the guy in killzone so short? The guys like 5 feet tall.

Good, I'm not the only one that thought that. Granted, I am used to looking down on most people IRL, but I've never played a FPS before that made me feel so short. It's like Killzone - Dwarvish Assassin!

I wonder how long it will take for WoW to become finally F2P.

Maybe when WoW 2 finally comes out 10 years from now?

There's some buzz around the nets about being able to connect to your ps4 over the internet from outside home with the Vita for remote play? Can anyone confirm/deny?

Videogame slingbox?


I did that with my PS3 and was playing the God of War collection from work on my Vita via my PS3 at home.

So far, however, my Vita fails to find my PS4 from work, although not for lack of trying. My PS4 is in standby, but it just isn't connecting. Probably some kinks to work out.

Hooked mine up at work earlier today. Connected the Vita over wi-fi, yeah, that is really cool.

Contrast - Fun little PSN game. Interesting game mechanics and setting.

Resogun - Actually pretty amazing to see all the crazy physics in this game, but at the end of the day it's still basically an 80s arcade shooter.

Killzone - RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE! It's so hard in some areas that it makes you want to smash things. Of course, it doesn't help that I hate using a controller for FPS games. Graphically it's nice, about what we've been seeing on PCs for, oh, years. The level I played was huge and very open, so it reminds me a bit of Crysis. But the framrate during some sequences really stutters noticeably.

I'm still getting used to the new UI, in some ways completely different from the PS3. I shared a screenshot of Killzone to FB just to see how that worked. I wanted to do a video, but hey, Sony only lets you record certain parts of Killzone right now. Nin is right, though. The PS4 loads stuff WAY faster than the PS3. Amazon video? Pop, you're in. My PS3 has to think about it for a minute before loading it up. Menus, the PS Store, everything loads super quick now. Very nice.

Oh, and right now my PS4 is off, but it's still charging my controller. SO GOOD.

Bah, that didn't show anything! I'm still looking forward to it though.

Don't care. Just confirmation of another is good for me. They're killing me with the is he/ is he not a descendant of Francis Drake, though.

I'm a little disappointed we have to wait another month for Infamous (granted, Feb wasn't a lock), but I'd rather they take their time and get it right.


Yeah, but man, those graphics! That's why I am excited about this gen. I mean, I loved inFAMOUS 1 and 2, and the Uncharted series is one of my favorites, but inFAMOUS Second Son looks sooooo much better. Now that we are basically getting PCs, at least we are getting PC graphics to match.

It does suck that it's end of March instead of end of Feb, but you are right. As long as it's great, I can wait. Uncharted is killing me too. I wish they'd at least put out a Vita sequel soon.

It's amazing how fast things get shipped now, ordered a Korean 1440p monitor off ebay and it arrived in three days.

Yup, my distributor is in CA and I get my games overnight. I order at 6PM EST pretty regularly, and the box is at my store by 11AM the next day. (Before I am most days.) CA to PA in 17 hours. You'd be lucky to fly there so quick yourself.

Re: PS4 failure - ZOMG! The SKY IS FALLING! Oh, no, wait. They are basically PCs now more than ever, with off the shelf parts and off the shelf problems. I doubt you will see anything like the failure rate on the original 360s.

Mine finally shipped early this morning. I've already got Killzone in hand. After reading the reviews for Knack I am so happy I did not get that. (It looked boring to me even during the E3 previews.)

I watched a stream on knack last night, and thought it looked fun...not GOTY or anything, but way better than the 4/10 it got...


It looks cool as a demo, but the negative reviews are largely due to brain shattering boring gameplay. 1 attack button, press repeatedly. No block.

inFAMOUS: Second Son in February. I just keep chanting that to myself.

I should get around to playing the other ones on the PS3, considering I have them. Maybe after GTAV, SR3, and the X-COM expansion... sigh...


If I were to buy a system now, it's easily the Xbone. The PS4 offers nothing right now. The Xbone offers some really cool TV features that fix 90% of what I hate my cable box for. If it had DVR functionality I'd buy it. But it doesn't, and since I don't have to buy anything right now, I'm not. I will happily wait for games. PS4 has some sweet ones coming. That Call of Duty with Mechs, though, is the game that will probably get me to finally buy a system.

I'll own both. But neither has me excited right now. The last system I bought (or was bought for me) at launch was the SNES, so it's not a huge surprise. And I spent the first 6 months with the SNES playing the NES more, because it had the better games coming out.

Titanfall is coming for the PC as well.
