love the negative press MS is getting today, like for example this one:

Microsoft Just Won't Stop Making the Xbox One Worse

Yeah funny how the currency fluctuation did not affect the Xbone price. Maybe retailers have stock of the bone but not that PS4 or whatever, but the new bone can be preordered for $399 in Canada so I call BS on the PS4 price being jacked up.

well PS4 was always out of stock here until exactly after the price increase. the moment the price increased stock magically appeared. it was as if Sony was holding back stock... scalpers on Kijiji/CL were making $50-$100 profits selling them all the way up until the price increase. while Xbox One was always in stock and people were always selling them at a loss. even being only $50 less PS4 still always sells 10 times more than the Xbone.

PS4 still $449 in Canada but Xbox One will be $399...

Yeah that sucks. Not sure why they've raised the PS4 price. Did it sell too well or something?

they raised the price after USD/CAD went below 0.9 back in March

but are they going to lower the price of PS4 or raise the price of Xbox One now?

1080p I believe, but at 60fps on a PS4.... call me skeptical.


Because it doesn't use half of the graphical details and effects of which the game is capable. If you want all that, you play on PC.

given the spec requirements for Watch Dogs on PC it will likely run like shit. might be badly coded for PC platform, like GTA4 was.

Who cares? It's probably the last generation of consoles anyway.

I'm willing to forgo any reasonable thought into how an Alien gets onto the station, it already looks like it'll be so much better than R. Scott's Prometheus. This is the direction that they should have taken with a prequel to Alien.

games always tend to be better than movies... (well, Alien/Aliens is an exception.)

R.I.P. C&C

shutting down the ability to play multiplayer C&C (Generals/Zero Hour/RA3/etc) is like killing the franchise completely. and with no new C&C game coming out now it's just over, the end. there will just be a few hardcore people playing on VPN, but that will be all.

Retard Overdrive

They've run out of ideas in Hollywood Video Game Town.

i know... it looks laughably bad.

"...and in a lot of ways it's the game that Insomniac's been building up to in 20 years"

pretty sad if that's true. it's like Saints Row meets The Last of Us meets Infamous/Jet Set Radio.

Your probably right about the immersion factor. Just about every German (and foreigner) I know here speaks english so i'm sure that isnt helping. Plus knowing the fact that in 3 years i'll be moving from Germany to another country once again doesnt help with my motivation at all either. I know that English comes from German, and i do see a lot of similarities, half the time i can get pretty close to what people are saying. I must have the worst pronounciation in the world though, as anytime i'm at a market or bakery or whatever out in the city i'll try out what little German i do know, and without fail and without hearing a word of english from me, the people almost always switch to english to answer me.

Thats interesting about learning Japanese, when i was in Hungary for a few years i was told that Hungarian has similarities to Japanese and Finnish, which is a weird combination to say the least. I think maybe they were reffering to the inflection part of Hungarian, which always totally screwed me over.

Well I suppose i'll redouble my efforts, though i must say the retention of Rosetta Stone is severely lacking

you should hear Koreans speaking Hungarian... their accent is very good

Praying for an e3 announcement...

Here's the thing. When you invest that kind of money you have to cater to the lowest common denominator. Unfortunately, it's blatantly obvious. As I've said in the past, it looks incredibly derivative. Combat looks boring, similar to Borderlands, but without the over the top violence that made that game fun. Designs are pulled from popular SF IP: there's the Predator looking alien, there's the Alien-looking alien, there's the giant floating spacecraft a la District 9, the giant spider-tank that looks like the Star Wars AT-TE. That tank looks super powerful, but poses little threat to the fireteams who take it out in under a minute, without even resorting to cover. Say what you will about BF4, but you sure as hell don't stand out in the open when an M1 tank comes around the corner. It looks like it would get very boring quickly. The environments look nice though.

you're dead on with that Star Wars AT-TE comparison.

but yeah, that $500 million budget for a single Destiny title is retarded. if it was that much budget for the whole 4 game franchise then it's understandable.
