It sounds like Sony did everything right except for arranging for decent launch software? From Polygon:

It's yet another console launch basically. Anyone remember Kameo and Heavenly Sword fondly? Seems like there is plenty of third party stuff to carry the day for both systems, neither one has a good launch lineup, I'll stick with my PC.

Killzone looks really good.

All the Killzones have looked good. None have actually been good. Only the first was flat-out terrible, but none have been half as fun as the other big console FPS games, or the other big PS exclusives.

Killzone 2 was great, it's not a dumb twitch shooter though so it won't appeal to everyone.

I like space captain not posting. :)

His trolls were at least interesting and often funny. He was way more insightful and less annoying than the PolitiTrolls like Thundr and his ilk.

That Google search thing is really disturbing. The Android home screen is literally google search now. It looks the same but any app you run, any number you call or person you message is run through the google search APK. Oh and they`re apparently going to be putting ads into the interface at some point, in the phone I already paid for. Thanks Google, do no evil indeed.

I'm pretty confident there will be Xbones everywhere. PS4 on the other hand will be in short supply.

I sure hope there's PS4s available before Christmas. Otherwise, my kids are gonna be pretty pissed when they unwrap the extra controller I already bought only to find out there's no console to go with it.


Walmart and Target just got extra unit allocations. There will be plenty to go around when things settle down. Don't expect to find one online, go to a store.

Neither version looks as good as the PC version but the Xbox One version is noticeably worse. This is no surprise since the Xbox One is underpowered compared to its own console counterparts, let alone a PC and worse it reserves resources for dumb things like Kinect.

I think it has always been a bug in Steam,

No it's them PR'ing covering their ass. It has a specific month timer, if you don't login to steam for a month you can't go into offline mode.

Please provide documented evidence of said timer. Every example found on the internet would be 30 days then instead of the variable responses found. Why would they PR in an obscure forum post? You just aren't rational.

Please fill out this survey so I can call you a liar because I can't comprehend why anyone would want to willingly contribute to the betterment of a society other than an inexperienced child.

Seph when you get out into the real world and realize you have to work for things, they aren't just handed to you on the backs of others, and they SHOULDN'T be, maybe you'll gain some wisdom as to how the world actually is.

It's nice to dream about this magical utopia that you think socialism would somehow bring about, without realizing that someone has to pay for it all. Reality has a habit of smacking you upside the head eventually. You'll get there someday I'm sure.

...the worthless hypocrite says as he takes advantage of countless opportunities afforded to him from other peoples taxes.

It is hard to imagine a more detestable waste of time than your posts, it`s like losing brain cells to constant head injury. The worst part is that you revel in your own ignorance as if it`s a virtue.

Yep we`re all off driving Ferraris from the 6k you paid in taxes last year you underachieving doofus. You`re the only person in the country with a job who doesn`t like paying taxes, everyone else is just leeching off your 50k a year, disappointment to mother dead end career.

When your general fictional novel gets down to $2 across the board I'll go in, otherwise no sale on ereaders.

Doubtful it will ever happen and prices on traditional books will continue to rise in the short term, your loss.

I admit, it was a little bit smart ass, but thought it was well deserved considering every single advantage you listed was of no interest to me. I have seen several e-readers owned by others including paperwhite, and frankly I've never been particularly impressed. But hey, whatever floats your boat. *shrug*

I think someone who likes books will like ereaders is the bottom line. Functionally they don't differ much from a book and arguably have some improvements in the ability to customize text size and font choice. You can put multiple books in one and the battery life is outstanding, I get easily a month on my Kindle despite reading daily. I still read regular books because ereaders aren't good for every situation but neither are regular books for that matter. Getting a leather case really made the ereader feel like a book again, I transition from both types of reading easily now.

If you want to avoid them just because then whatever works for you, books will always be around so everyone can be happy.

One day the ability to subscribe to Gold will require a Gold subscription.

I remember when they tried to put BBC iPlayer behind the paywall and the BBC told them to fuck off with that crap or they would block Microsofts API keys. It's the only free app on Live Gold now.

And when the data they find is not spun to suit an agenda there is overwhelming consensus that much of the global warming occurring now is part of the natural complex and dynamic ecosystem of the earth

I think you gloss over mans contribution to it and how small the margin is between livable and unlivable for our species. People are dramatic about global warming because it's a serious issue, climate models weren't very accurate in the past but are becoming much more now, in fact several have actually undershot the rise in water temperatures worldwide for example. We are seeing more and more extreme weather and CO2 levels the planet hasn't seen in millions of years. Sensible means starting somewhere, the trouble is that no one wants to do anything meaningful because it's not convenient. Oh well the planet will be here no matter what, just a question of whether our species can live in the conditions we're inflicting.

You don't really self publish on Xbox One, you publish to the Windows 8 store and are still subject to a 3GB memory limit due to the game running in the OS layer. They take a fatter cut this way too.

God that company fucking sucks, I hope no informed consumer gives them money. Here is our shit sandwich, hope it tastes good!

NKD wrote on Jul 21, 2013, 13:25:
I wonder if any of you have actually thought about the implications of peer-to-peer used games market on Steam...

To make it simple, you have two buttons that are effectively "Buy for Cheap from another user" and "Buy for Expensive from the developer/publisher."

Instead of selling 500,000 copies, a developer sells 50,000 that just get recycled over and over again for eternity. You don't see this with console games because there's an inconvenience factor and the most convenient way has an annoying middle man that takes most the money. (Gamestop, most commonly).

Whether it's within our rights or not, it's definitely not in our best interests, because it would decimate the Steam catalog as publishers bail out from a platform that discourages its users from even buying from the publisher.

This is alarmist theorycrafting that assumes people will actually trade all of their games instead of owning them and that publishers can't work around this with DLC as they are doing already. Most publisher released games in the past year have at least 1-2 content packs, if not more and they sell the base game versions for next to nothing after 3 months to spur those DLC sales. Digital resale will not cause the end of Steam or the video game industry, it just needs careful execution and methodology. Account binding and per copy account activation is the simplest way to do this and Steam already has the functionality. The bigger problem is how companies would chase money by splitting even more content off to DLC but that's already happening on a large scale so I can't say this would cause any harm.

Andrew Reisse is a good example of why Police should not be involving themselves in high speed chases.

Agreed. People get killed all the time in these things because some of these cops have to be the macho badasses. And unless the people in the car are an immediate lethal threat to society, let them go and scoop them up later. No one should die because some kid stole a car or some other dumb shit.

This isn't wrestling, they were enforcing the law after a previous shooting. They were an immediate lethal threat, if you read the story you will find all of the details. The police can't just let people go because they rev their car up.

It's a sad set of circumstances but it's one of those shitty, random things that happens in society.
