A good Final Fantasy game would almost be enough to prompt me to purchase my first console since SNES.... I'll be watching.

I dunno. FFXV isn't really showing us much, but from the latest trailer it doesn't look like it qualifies as much of an RPG. Looked more like an action game with real time movement and combat.

And it seems that the PS4 will have mandatory fees in the form of acessing MP. This will balance the cheap price of the console though no doubt it will drive more people into the PC. If you want to play MP on the PS4 you now have to pay Sony every month.

Still, I have no doubts the PS4 will break the sales records of the PS2.

A master stroke really. Existing Playstation fans are so psyched about having the better console, that migrating to PSN Plus isn't going to be a big deal. A lot of PSN users already have Plus for various reasons. Meanwhile, Xbox 360 players are already used to paying monthly, and won't have to get used to a change on that front.

Sony just outclassed Microsoft in every way this time round. PS4 is better hardware, better software, better business model, and they presented it in a much more palatable way. And MS can't pull enough marketable exclusives out of their ass to dig their way out of this one. They'll definitely be playing second fiddle this generation.

Why is this game looking less and less impressive as time goes on?

Because they aren't showing us anything new. We've seen the basics of the gameplay, but we don't know the big picture stuff. Why are we doing this shit? What's the game's open world structure like? This stuff would be nice to know...

Could someone help me. I keep trying to view the Titanfall announce trailer, but for some reason, I keep getting misdirected to what looks like gameplay footage from Battlefield 2142.

I was having the same problem...haven't found a solution yet

The big open world aspect is appealing to me. I love open world lobby-less racing games, and this seems like the biggest one yet. The kicker for me will be car customization though. It needs to be fucking good.

The rumors are that Sony is trying to keep it to $400 or less. We'll see though.
I doubt it will be that low.

$500 for the Xbone. MS is really doing its best to kill itself.

Any guess on the PS4?
I'd say +/- 10%. It only matters is they come down 20%, though. Anything less than $100 off is a non-factor I think.

The rumors are that Sony is trying to keep it to $400 or less. We'll see though.

When discussing console prices, don't forget inflation.

The NES, in today's money, would cost $426. The XBox would be $387.

Heh yeah playing with inflation gets you some amusing numbers.

A $49.99 game in 1999, if game prices kept up with inflation, would be $69.77 today.

Trying not to assume this will be COD: Mech Edition. And it's for Windows so I don't need an Xboner.

Anyone who thinks this situation would be any better or worse with Party A or Party B in power is a delusional fuckwit who is playing right into the hands of the real powers in this country.

It doesn't matter who you vote for. The few candidates who aren't surveillance shills will never be elected to real positions of power. Never. Even if they managed to get a lot of public support, which they won't because the public is too busy arguing over smokescreen issues like abortion and gay marriage, there are assurances in place that would prevent them from ever really doing anything.

Also, the wonder of term limits. Even if we did get a President who was vehemently anti-surveillance, he'd be gone in 8 years. They could just stop briefing him on it, sweep it partly under the rug, and pop it back out when he's gone.

Anyone who still declares themselves a Republican or a Democrat is part of the problem.

And it's already taken down. Thanks Ubisoft.

I don't understand... works fine for me.

Had a Ubisoft takedown notice for a while... had to go view it on Vimeo through some Kotaku link at first. Seems fine now.

They have to invent new terms for how much raw data is being collected.

I'm trademarking the term ObamaByte. It's the amount of data, in bytes, that the US government collects on its own citizens each and every day without any justification. A rough estimate would be 1 ObamaByte = 10 Petabytes.

Creston

Obama may not have initiated the culture of surveillance on everyone, but he sure did nothing to stop it. So I support naming this data the ObamaByte.

Before I could get it going on Youtube I viewed this video on Vimeo in shitty 480p. At that low res I thought it was a live action trailer for about half the trailer before I caught on.

EDIT: Also I like that they waited until after showing us a fair bit of gameplay over the last year before putting out some high dollar "tells-you-nothing" CG hype trailer.

And what's wrong with vengeance?

Nothing, unless you expect me to be part of it. It's not my place to be part of that. And it certainly isn't the government's place.

If someone you ever love is murdered, then come talk to me. Because I'd happily chip in to see them put down. How many of you were cheerleading the invasion of Iraq after 9/11? What about assholes like the Sandy Hook shooter or Boston bombers? You really think we'd be better off with them siting in a jail cell for life? Please.

Whether they are sitting in jail for life or rotting in the ground, they are no longer a threat to me or my family. But the risks are greater for the death penalty than for life imprisonment, with minimal gain.

There's just so little practical gain from killing them, that it seems not worth the bother. And I don't know about you, but I don't believe in afterlife fairytales, so even if I did crave vengeance for some terrible wrong, it wouldn't be in the form of a quick death.

And if you're really concerned about wasting space and resources, let's talk about the huge number of non-violent criminals serving needlessly long sentences only to come out worse than when they went in.
