In the past couple generations there's not really been a clear winner in the console wars. Will there be this time?

Uh? What would you consider the PS2 to be, if not the clear winner for its generation?
Or is your "past couple generations" limited to just the very last generation?
No, I never really saw ps2 being a clear winner over xbox 1. Just my opinion. Like I said, I dislike consoles in general, it would have to be a heck of a difference (such as now) for me to notice or care about and decide one is a winner.

I don't really care one way or the other, but I think the PS2 was probably a clear winner over the Xbox. I think just in sales numbers, not opinion. I could be mistaken though.

EDIT: Looking at Wikipedia it would seem I am not. It lists the PS2 with 155 million sold vs the Xbox's 24 million. I would qualify that as a heck of a difference.

I would love to have been in on their meetings leading up to and including this week.

While these two polls are totally unscientific (think it was Lorcin who linked that first one?), the fact that both are so totally lopsided, and have been all day yesterday, is a serious red flag for the XBOne. If the public opinion is truly that split, this could very well be an utter disaster of billions of dollars for MS.

This is just an individual example, but I was firmly in the Sony camp until the 360. Most of my friends had a 360 and Sony wasn't really doing anything to keep me so I ended up with a Xbox and was pretty happy with it. This time? I either see myself passing totally on this generation or getting a PS4. I didn't feel that way until the details dropped.

Microsoft really messed up with the Xbox one in my opinion.

Wow... MS seems impossibly unprepared for this announcement. I wonder if they somehow thought Sony was going to do something similar?

I think one of the problems is it's almost impossible to tell the player count. I mean there's no chat rooms. What chat there is randomly numbered to give you no idea of how many channels have people(vs D2). There always seems to be people playing, but the real numbers are so hard to figure out unless your blizzard. I expect the exp pack early 2014, if it does what the D2 exp pack did then a lot of people will forget about the last year of complains, except those on here and redit will still complain. Even without it the QOL in D3 is a lot better then a year ago.

Yeah, there is never any sense you're part of a bigger community playing the game. They needed proper lobbies like D2.

To be fair I can see why they didn't bring them over to D3. The lobbies were roughly 99.995% AFK people and spam bots.

Sony: PS4 consumer interest is great, launch supply issues possible

EAT THAT, M$!!! BWAHAHAHAHA!

While I would agree it seems like Microsoft really wants Sony to win this generation of the console war, supply issues have been a problem for Sony in the past. That and the whole I thought we had moved past the M$ thing...

the game will be way down on active players by then. Maybe they meant 2013 *shrugs*

Maybe it was just a lot of people like me seeing what Blizzard had done with the game, but when I came back after the last patch there seemed to be a lot of players.

I haven't played in a while now so it could have died down since then, but I was getting into maxed player games almost instantly on a variety of level characters. No idea if any of those people are still active or if they had actually been active prior to the patch. They could have all just been curious players like me looking to see what was fixed and what was still broken.

Just visually, it looks pretty good. That said, I don't know. The once awesome C&C series has just been dumped on by EA over and over. The last one didn't even have bases :/

The next generation of Command & Conquer will mark a return to the core gameplay that put the series on the map.

One can hope...

The game doesn't hand-hold and is filled with mechanics.

I may give it another go at some point (after all, the game isn't finished) but I played around with the Paladin and hated it. It felt much less like not holding my hand and much more like they just hadn't done a very good job designing the game.

I rather liked the way they did potions, but that was really one of the only positive aspects I remember from my play.

the Best Buy near me has 3 Collector Edition cases still sitting on the shelves in their PC gaming section

I think the PC gaming sections of well... pretty much every store are just graveyards anymore. I usually see collector or limited editions of most any game there well after release. They only seem to get a very limited number of titles and they don't ever really seem to move. I think most people go digital instead of B&M.

Plus collector's editions really only target hardcore fans. They all snagged it at launch. More casual players aren't going to pay the premium and with direct download it isn't that likely that they would even go to a store for it.

Interesting. I had Quackshot as a kid, but I never knew there was a full on DuckTales game.

Did someone say Duck Tales? /shamelessplug

edit: After watching your video that game seems really familiar. I guess I played it as well. Might have been a rental. Either way thanks for the nostalgia.

Hopefully NASL continues its SC2 content. It had really shaped up to be an excellent league with lots of extra content. Pity if it has to close down because of WCS.

This early access is for those who coughed up $199.00 for The Ultimate Pack from the game's founder's program

Shocked Given the history of MMOs, those are some bold people. I felt really burned by paying retail for the mess that was Age of Conan. I couldn't imagine dropping $200 and hoping a quality MMO that will last comes out.

I thought the Whimsyshire easter egg in D3 was a great jab at those people on its own. That said, they mostly ruined it by making it annoyingly hard to get to. The higher difficulties of it were also absurdly expensive given what was likely to drop there. Funny idea but weak implementation.

Rumor: Gran Turismo 6 for PS3 this holiday.

Given the development time of the last one, I highly doubt this. Unless it is just some minimal upgrade from the previous release.

People keep bringing up an expansion. Here is all I'm going to say about an expansion for Diablo 3:

The RMAH should have paid for one 10 times over again, and they really have completely lost touch if they plan on charging for an expansion, while making who-knows how much money on their RMAH.

They make what? Like $1 per RMHA? How much activity is on the RMAH? People make this argument but it seems silly to me. They run WoW, they don't need the money and I doubt the AH even covers server costs for D3.

I don't mean to say that the game doesn't continue to have issues, but I doubt the RMAH is some super cash cow.

It seems very limited. I guess I was still in the tutorial section, but it was still forcing me to use prespecified building locations a reasonable bit in.

Yes, but some F2P games are really more 'F2P but not really, you have to pay to do pretty much anything after the start'. Age of Empires Online was like that (at least at first, they may have changed it later).

I quit long ago, never really got very far into A4 Inferno and I didn't think I would be back. I started playing again after the most recent patch and am having a bit of fun. I doubt I will continue to play for a long time, but they really did make a ton of improvements since launch. It doesn't change the fact that it is absurd for a game that spent that long in development to take another year after release to get this good, but it is something. I think D3 wasn't really a traditional Blizzard quality game, but it was still fun.

I can't speak to the AH, never really used it.
