I have been playing this game from release and this feature pack, although ambitious,has made too much of a negative impact of the game.Through all the devs positive double speak, it will have a negative impact on many. It's a game breaker for many.

What exactly is so negative about this update?

I can't even say Ant-Man without laughing. I guess everything Marvel does prints money no matter how bad it is so perhaps the joke is on me.

Sony getting out of bed with Square isn't surprising, Square is floundering and Sony needs to shore itself up.

This doesn't surprise me at all, so many people here post about their unplayed games in every sales thread.

The share button sucks until I can share to sensible video services like Youtube. I tweeted to one of the VPs at Sony about it and he replied with "oh you can just put your video on a USB drive" as if we had been transported back in time 7 years. Sony was first to the whole share thing on the consoles and they're letting Microsoft beat them in features.

you are fooling yourself if you think this development arc is timely, it will be many more years before you see half of what they promised for this

I never said anything about the development being timely, just that I'm not concerned based on whats been shown. Given the scope of the project the lack of a playable build doesn't surprise me. If they don't have anything by Christmas time then I'll start to wonder.

I hope I'm wrong but I can't in good conscience put any more money toward a backing pledge, especially given how little we've seen that 42 million generate.

It takes a lot of time to create games, especially one on the scope of this. You can throw 200 million dollars at it and they still couldn't make it appear in a year. What they've done so far is pretty impressive in my opinion, I don't see any reason for concern so far.

Why would anyone choose NOT to install windows update? In any case there seems to be a lot of problems with the update itself as the article clearly indicates.
There is no way you can lay the blame on this on the article writer or the users/customers.

Read the article dude, they give a few reasons why.

I've found it to be pretty terrible in dealing with rootkits in the past few years. It was fine when it was the new kid on the block but these days the malware authors have all adapted. MSE + Malwarebytes isn't a bad combo though and those plus some good user habits will keep 99% of people clean. There is no antivirus in the world that prevents an idiot from getting malware, the best bet there is to hand them a tablet.

A PC port is pretty trivial if they're already doing a PS4 and Xbox One version though is the point. I doubt they'll skip it.

Why would they skip RDR when they would have made a fortune on it? I don't know, nin. They're Rockstar. They do weird shit for no obvious reason.

They didn't have anyone to cobble it together, RDR was a very flawed project that barely made it to market and all of their teams were committed to new games. They've said this a few times and probably would have loved to do it.

A more important question is what the hell happened to Agent?

It always amuses me that people will often argue in favor of the very corporations that continually screw them at every opportunity and do not have the consumer in mind at all. Why not spend some energy defending the few corporations who actually serve the general public and their shareholders instead of pushing some strange political agenda? I will definitely be buying up infrastructure related stocks for the rest of this year knowing that stockholm syndrome is alive and well in the general populace to protect my investments.

Feels like you just keep moving the goalposts around. First you were saying two of three next gen platforms are subpar PCs but exclude the one you happen to own. Then claimed the criteria was some nebulous comparison of how the game was coded for the hardware its running on. Now its what you play in your living room that you consider unique which is a meaningless metric because it's inherently subjective to an individual.

Plain and simple, most console hardware is obsolete on release or shortly thereafter simply because there is no upgrade path outside of devchain improvements. But who cares? Most people don't really buy it for the clockspeed of the CPU or anything, that might be some marketing material but no one is running out to the store asking for the 1.8767ghz 8 core Xbox One. The hardware comparisons on forum are largely between other consoles, the PC is a very different platform with its own set of pros, cons and unique software. People buy consoles for the games and the convenience factor, something that you can't put a price tag on.

It is kind of pointless to make any conclusions about any platform this soon into a new generation, most of the time the big ticket games don't appear until ~2 years later. Even the Wii U's destiny is far from written just yet despite the doom and gloom from the press. Besides hardware capabilities are one thing and fun games are another. The PS3 was a very powerful machine at its release and had very few decent games.

Anyways the article is clickbait, there is always generational overlap and it always takes awhile for consoles to build up a respectable library.
