But no word on a wireless option, so at the moment, useless for me.

Windows Phone is actually a great device. As usual Microsoft delivered a fine, competitive product WAY too late.

Whoa, positive posts regarding a Microsoft product on Blues. I've been a Win Phone User since the Lumia 900 (currently a HTC 8X) and would never go back to another phone even though I get to use a lot of other devices at work (Android, iOS). But then again I'm not really an "Apps-person". For real work I just use a PC (ironically, a Macbook Pro with Win 8.1 on it )

Top developers just don't care about Windows Phone.
Surprising when you know how horrible iOS (but hey they got a new language and Android development is compared to Visual Studio / C#

Playing Watch Dogs makes me want to go back and play Wolfenstein all over again. Watch Dogs isn't bad but it's really nothing special either. It's GTA all over again.

We were scheduled to get them the other day. Apparently it was only from the cockpit looking straight up... "referencing one of the bugs"

Not sure why they give dates out, they should stick to "it will possibly be out on xxx date pending no game stopping bugs". No matter, I've waited this long, and I just bought ED, time to dust off my old joysticks, that is, if I can find them.

Who'd have ever thought space games would make a comeback, either way, I'm happy they have.

I spent 15 Minutes killing an enemy fighter in a small skirmish with a cruiser because my Hotas Stick has not yet arrived and I had to play with Mouse / Keyboard. This game really captures the feel of the grand Star Wars dogfights. It's THAT good.

Can't wait until they unlock the Premium beta!
The single player combat module alone was awesome.

So I managed to get it running (updated the AMD drivers). Works now. Lots of in-game cut scenes in the first 30 min (no quicktime events so far). Need to get some sleep, but I'm enjoying what I saw. Not to spoil, but the "enemies" you see at the very start are impressive (what they are, not how they fight). On that note, don't play on the default setting. It's really fucking easy. Bump it up a notch.

So far so good.
Nice first impressions, thanks. I had to order it via ebay.co.uk since amazon.co.uk shot down my pre-order. Seems that Bethesda prohibited amazon from selling the uncut version to germany. In the german version they cut out the swastika (stupid but it's the law since video games are not yet "art") AND replaced every reference to "nazis" with "the regime" which is really just stupid.

Microsoft announced 115,000 Xbones sold in April.
Ouch.
Sony better enjoy being the king of "next-gen". Reading those numbers, who knows how long they'll be around in this form.

They could always spin off and sell the Playstation division. Even if they go bankrupt that'd happen, so I wouldn't worry too much.

(Then again, what if MS then just buys them... )

More likely Sony and MS both spin off their console divisions into a joint venture. Seems like both are on the verge of spinoffs, and Sony is no stranger to these sorts of things...

Whoa, guys, a Sony / MS console division would be scary AND dangerous for the customer...

I bought the Premium Beta and I was BLOWN AWAY by the flight model and the overall quality of the dogfights & visuals. I think this was the first time in 5 years that a game really wow'ed me. That x-wing, tie fighter nostalgia was right back...

Not quite sure how you can be "BLOWN AWAY by the flight model and overall quality of the dogfights and visuals" as only the people who paid for the alpha have full access yet. Those of us who signed up for the beta get the access in a couple of weeks...
Eh, wrong, as a premium beta buyer you don't get the full alpha, but you get the single player combat module, about 10 single player missions.

Sony is the only one doing well,
Which is why this is a little surprising:
"Sony execs taking 50% pay cut as big losses loom"
Doesn't surprise me. Their numbers were not great in the last couple of months. Can't imagine they are making a lot of profit with the PS4, material cost / retail price-ratio isn't that great either.

love the negative press MS is getting today, like for example this one:

Microsoft Just Won't Stop Making the Xbox One Worse

Anytime Microsoft's nose is bloodied, it's a beautiful day!

Why is that? Among all the big corporations you should never trust, I think MS is the lesser evil at the moment.

They need to price the upcoming no-optical-drive xbox one for about 350$. That might give them some space.

One stat is interesting, apparently about 4% of steam users do not have a 64bit cpu

and 10% have only 2GB of RAM, Wow? 2 GB .. OF... RAM ?
2% have 1GB of RAM

Mobile devices. My new Windows tablet (Bay Trail) is both 32-bit and only has 2GB of RAM, but I can run many Steam games on it. I have an older laptop (dual-core) with x86 Windows 7 with 2GB of RAM (came with 1GB), too. My netbook (x86 dual-core Atom) has 2GB of RAM (came with 1GB) and runs Windows 7 and even it can run some classic titles. That doesn't even include the people running non-Windows OS...

I took my 8" Toshiba Encore with me on vacation and I was pleasantly surprised how awesome Broken Age was running on it in touch mode. Bring it on!

I think, as of now, both next-gen consoles can be considered "fails". I only start my XO for Titanfall and if I had a PS4 I honestly don't know what title I'm supposed to play that I can't get on the PC cheap.

Infamous Second Son
Killzone Shadow Fall
Resogun
Dead Nation
Octodad

With big hitters impending

Still don't see a must have game in that list
