$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.

Between $370 and $460, I would say. With the Xbone price announced and all the terrible features that comes with it, Sony may strike gold even if the price difference is only $50. Sony now has the advantage.

However I still believe this console gen will be an overall disapointment in terms of sales.

$370?
I think there's zero chance they go below $400. They'd be losing way too much money per unit shipped.

With Microsoft getting bad buzz, though, and with Microsoft releasing the pricing first, I wouldn't be surprised if they had several copies of their presentation, with price points between $400 and $600, in $50 increments.

With Microsoft falling at $500, do they come in the same, or do they cut the legs off Microsoft at $400, even if it means losing ~80-~120 per unit? Is that worth leaving your biggest competitor DOA?

It all depends on how Sony views the price elasticity of the PS4. Remember, the xbone has already a tarnished reputation and many people who thought of buying only 1 console will definetely choose the PS4.

So, price elasticity. It's only a question of how much Sony wants to become the king of this generation and how many consoles they want to sell. Either way it's safe to say MS has already lost the race before it even started.

Has potential to be a fun MP game in WWI.

Speaking of WWI, if anyone wants to know more about the Great War, watch this awesome BBC documentary about it:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2vOYmu90KM

This is the equivalent of WWI as World at War was for WWII. Disregard that this documentary was made in 1964, most information is still up to date and the interview with WWI veterans are priceless, especially when you consider that there is no longer any WWI veteran and participant alive anymore.

Many myths about WWI will be broken by watching this awesome documentary though be warned, it's a rather raw documentary that holds no punches in showing human misery and death.

Nice to see Prison Architect and ArmA3 there too. Both games have been making tremendous progress during their alphas. Arma3 is almost unrecognizable since it's initial alpha launch and PA is becoming one of the finest tycoon game ever for PC.

They're kind of all over the place right now. Gamefaqs has a few for sure, although I try not so spend a lot of time there to get extremely acquainted.

Hell, even 4chan got a few recently, and that's 4chan we're talking about!

I'm starting to think that those saying the US are turning into a police state aren't that wrong after all. This is scary stuff right here.

We definitely know there are Microsoft shills here too, not very surprising. Basically anyone who likes Windows 8 and Xbox One is pretty much guaranteed to work for Microsoft.

I have no care or love for the XboxOne, but Windows 8 is just fine to those of us who have the mental capacity to do a little adapting when an OS changes.

I think I prefer those of us with actual mental capacity to realize that win8 is more of a downgrade than an upgrade and that realize that change isn't always good or for the better.

Ah yes, the final big climatic Fuck You from Blizzard to PC gamers everywhere. Not only they make the console version a lot better than the PC version by removing the AH and allowing it to be played offline, it makes everyone who bought D3 feel as betatesters for the console version.

And still people will give these monkeys their money. Blizzard no longer is what they were.

Hmmm, trailer launched on the same day as the anniversary of the D-Day landings. Some may call this timing tasteless, others may call it good marketing.

Despite that, game looks better than I thought it would.

Just a quick question, have ASeven and Axis played the game?

Cos they both seem to be bagging a free game.

Have you played every single game, watched every single movie and TV series, ate every single piece of food on every restaurant, read every single book and comics you ever criticized?

And as was pointed several times, the idea that you cannot criticize something you haven't played is idiotic. Of course you can criticize stuff you haven't played based on the impressions you get from watching videos, reading community and site reviews, from what friends who have played have to say about it, etc.

Such backwards thoughts, that you can't crticize what you didn't play, a thought so close to the horrendous, pro-publisher "entitled gamer" crap, are thoughts that not only don't stand under proper logical reasoning, they also don't stand in any other industry.

You support Paths of Exile, and have given them your money. It doesn't matter if you did it while it's still Alpha/Beta. They have a Pay2Win business model that you seem to hate so much. The fact that you don't understand this just goes to show you how fucking dense you really are.

Liar. POE is anything but pay to win. If you had bothered to read about at how Path of Exile works, let alone installed and tried it for more than a few minutes you would know how wrong that P2W statement is. But I suspect you already know that and enjoy lying to make yourself appear correct. I will call you out on it though. You are lying.

And here was I thinking Krovven had become something other than a dumbass and had actually grown some intelligence, guess I was wrong, and I will call Krovven on his lie as well, it's pretty obvious he never played PoE since it's the only F2P game out there that does F2P right and only sells cosmetic stuff. The fact Krovven says it's P2W means he hasn't even played a single minute of it.

Keep digging Krovven, like you did with the D3 discussions. Keep on digging.
