Fast & Furious 7?

Yup. I was just saying to my wife "There's already a Need for Speed movie. It's called The Fast and the Furious."

OMG! $500 for a console, no way! Oh, wait, they've always been expensive.

For a console with zero backwards compat and a mandatory online fee I think it's still pretty expensive. Oh and you're basically just renting games from Microsoft.

The launch $500 PS3 could play the following:

PS1 games (almost 100% compatibility)
PS2 games (almost 100% compatibility)
PS3 games (derp)
Blu-ray (was completely new technology at the time, Blu-ray players had literally just shown up on the market)

The $500 XBone will have Xbox One games and Blu-ray playback and essentially nothing else.

The $500 PS3 launch console was $599.

For the jump in graphics and features, the price isn't bad. It'll come down over time. PS4 is going to essentially cost the same amount. Again, just a jump in graphics and features.

I'm not a Xbox fan at all. I detest the 360. But, some of their stuff looks cool for XBone. There are plenty of things that it does wrong, so bashing it for pricing that is probably going to be in line with the PS4 is unnecessary. (ONline 1x per day, subscription pricing, Kinect/PRISM in your living room, etc.)

I can't wait for the PS4 stuff tonight, however. I know I am getting a PS4 for home. The Xbone I might get a work console for demos, but unless something really blows me away, I won't get one for myself.

Titanfall looks cool. Glad it's coming to PC, though, because I was watching that trailer and thinking how cool it looked and how I wouldn't even be able to play it on a controller.

Some of the XBone stuff looks pretty neat, but they still have to get over the subscription pricing for multiplayer and stuff. Yeah, they are giving free games for Gold Live. Whoopty doo. PSN does that AND you don't have to have PSN subs to play multiplayer or watch movies online.

AMD say "PC ports of next-generation console titles are likely to struggle" on Intel tech.

I hope that this is not true. :/

EDIT: NVM, I thought they were talking about CPUs.

Naw, just AMD being weird. INtel CPUs are better, but Intel doesn;t really make any gaming GPUs. AMD now includes ATI, so they are bragging that Intel non-discreet graohics won't be able to keep up. It's a non-story. Intel on-board graphics have never been able to play real games.

The US Civil War is overlooked by an even greater degree. It is still the war that killed the most US citizens. Not to mention the social and political changes that are still effecting the country to this day.

That's because nobody wants to be reminded how both sides were in the wrong and it's probably not a good idea to bring up the bad blood year after year.

Way to release a new SKU and charge full price at $60... good job Bethesda!

A new copy of Skyrim still retails for $39.99. The DLCs are $5.99, $19.99, and $19.99. SO buy the cheaper retail copy and spend a total of $86 to get all the DLC or this for $60.

Math, it's so hard, right?

Can you tell who is an American just by how bad they are at the metric system? I think he really did mean 20cm which = 200mm of which there are MANY case fans available in that size.

I am waiting until I need to replace my 590 with something to get games to run smoothly. By then I can probably pick up 2 mid-range cards, SLI them, and get good performance.

And I don't buy AMD (ATI) cards because I have tried them repeatedly and I just don't like the results. (Or the drivers...)

After watching Tropes vs. Women in Video Gamesí second episode, I didnít realize the alarming propensity with which developers use this as a plot device

Eh? Offhand I can't think of a single game I have in which my wife/gf/daughter gets killed and I go on a rampage of vengeance?


Creston

Max Payne?

I find the whole argument that the stories are stale to be ridiculous. Guess what, honey? Ain't nothing new under the sun. Everything is a rehash hopefully told with a somewhat different spin. Also, thousands of years of human history and she wants the whole men protecting women thing to go away in 50 years. Yeah, good luck with that. Let me know how the bra burning thing is working out for you. Equal rights? Sure. Equal? Not hardly. That's why there are still two sexes, derp.

This isn't the first time Blizzard has axed a game before release. Usually they do it a lot later when it's a lot more clear that the game will only be mediocre. Anyone remember Starcraft: Ghost? Or Warcraft Adventures? At least they dropped the axe before anyone could be truly disappointed.

Haha, should have hit refresh before I posted, you had the same thought.

I'm guessing that's exactly what it was. Too many new ideas since they started cloning their own game and they finally realized it wouldn't sell unless they did a major overhaul.

Just finished Last Light. This is my kind of FPS. (Liked the first one as well, but never managed to finish it. SO close.) Creepy as hell with great graphics and gameplay. I love that the air gun is the most powerful weapon.

Still waiting for BL2 GOTY so I don't have to buy all the DLC separately. (Even though I own the CE)

I can't get into CS:GO. I played thousands of hours of CS and CS:S and I am just so done with that game.

Payday was interesting for a couple of hours, but I would never pay for it or the sequel. (Played during a free weekend.)

You answered your own question, "Yes, it's not as responsive as a keyboard / mouse combo"

I can't hit shit in console FPS games. I can barely hold my own in 3rd person single player games. Joysticks are just too inaccurate, which is why they build in auto-aim on every console shooter.

The one exception was Uncharted: Golden Abyss. I really liked the way you could use the stick for gross aim and then really fine tune it by tilting the Vita. I hope they let use the Vita like that one games for the PS4.

Wasn't a big fan of Halo. Can't play FPS on consoles. (Except Killzone because the gun control was actually fun, but the game was so generic I couldn't tell you one damn thing about it) I so don't care about the massively over-hyped Destiny right now, PC port or no.

(I have not tried MEtro Last Light on my laptop yet, though. Only the desktop.)
You can run Metro on your desktop with a 590 at max settings? What do you consider "good fps"?

Consistently above 40.
