Good for Deep Silver. Tell the whiny self entitled game journalists to take their hypersensitive crying over complete non-issues and fuck off.

At least Deep Silver delivered what they promised, personally I'm not into that but each to their own. I'm guessing putting that in your living room will ensure your house doesn't get robbed

Yay, Go Nintendo.

So Deep Silver went ahead and shipped the Dead Island Riptide Zombie Bait Edition regardless. Option not to buy apparently insufficient.
Indeed, What the fuck is the problem? Sure, they should have had two versions. One of a guys lower half with teeth marks in his shaft. Oh yeah, would have bought that

The same games as on every other platform? That's why the exclusives matter. You can't just ship a console and expect third parties to do everything though and arguably Microsoft hasn't been doing a great job of fostering that ecosystem in the past three years anyway. They need to lead by example, that's how consoles get going. Sony fucked that up big time for the PS3 launch and look what happened. They recovered but only after doing a lot of first party stuff and reaching out to developers. Microsoft did a bunch of exclusives and were friendly to devs/pubs instead of standoffish and arrogant, they ended up much better this gen based on work they did almost 4-5 years ago.

It's a much tougher market now and people have more forms of entertainment than they do time to enjoy it. I'm all for value add shit but I would much rather get a great console with great games first and all of that other shit I can get from a Roku second.

Like I said, it seems like they're a lot more focused on this living room multimedia mess than actually getting decent games to play.

If I buy a console, I'm buying it as a game player. Not because I want to order pizza or surf the web. I have other devices that do those a lot better. I'm not interested in trying the MS solution.


But any console is about the game ON it, not necessarily about the games they make (with exception to Nintendo and even Sony to a degree). Majority of consoles are about 3rd party developers.

Sadly I don't see a return to a focus as a gaming console, just more of the same. Many of the big minds behind the Xbox are long gone and the corporate side of the company seems to be putting more and more pressure onto the entertain division to tie all of their products together.

They will announce a few exclusives just for the launch, of course. After that we'll be back to updates centered around the best way to deliver ads, exclusive DLC instead of games, Skype, Xbox TV and dumb shit like Bing Kinect Search. I wouldn't be shocked to see a price increase for XBL and the elimination of Silver altogether.

Microsoft hasn't lost touch with indies! They've just lost touch with every single fucking thing, ever.

Nintendo jumps back to profit despite Wii U struggles

The 3DS is really taking off now and is helping to save their bacon. They need some killer software for the Wii U this year though otherwise it's going to turn into another Gamecube.

Pizza Hut on Xbox; Gold Unlocked for Select Sports Apps this weekend.
