Out of the Blue

Well E3 2013 is upon us: Last week saw the now-expected rollout of a lot of the media from the show, and attendees will enter the giant pinball machine beginning tomorrow. Today we'll get to experience several publisher presentations, beginning with Microsoft at Noon (EDT) today, followed by Apple, Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, and Sony. This will include lots of presenters in boy-band headsets and, if recent history serves, barely a mention of the PC platform. I'm certainly happy to be wrong about that, and it will be interesting to see if the nascent stages of the new console cycle make that better or worse.

Hmmmm.... A bit of news on the PS4's DRM side.

Basically the same as the PS3.

Haha, #4 is gold. GOLD I tell you!

You know, that Lebron block isn't that big of a deal....sports people have such short memories. Anyone that is over 30 remembers very vividly Ewing's blocks week after week, Robinson's, any game between any of the teams of Knicks, Bulls, Lakers, Pistons!, and Celtics were just block, dunk, and foul fest.

Lebron.....pffffft.

/a 2 second youtube look shows over 100 blocks that best Lebron's dunk. The number 1 item is the Top 10 of the year already and most are better.

Microsoft should stay the course, I'm happy to see them take a beating again. Big victory for the anti-DRM/anti-big brother crowd.

It isn't as awe inspiring as people think. Still obviously will be online 99% of the time with a ps4, cause, well, it is connected. If not, then no online play obviously. Also it isn't DRM-free, and they haven't really spoken a ton about it and have side stepped the details a bit.

Now, MSFT? They won't drop the price, they are too pig headed to do that. They will suffer a bit, but there are so many Madden/Woods/CoD people that don't care if it is PS4 or xbox, but they will get xbox cause that is what all of their dude bros have.

So no, it won't hurt them much.

I have a ps3 and xbox 360, I also have damn near every main stream console that was released. Both ps3 and xbox 360 died, but xbox replaced mine free of charge, and ps3 said pound sand.

Major wait and see for both consoles, as the exclusive games just aren't worth it at this point. Now, if they come out and says GTA is exclusive (which it isn't) then I would have to take some time to think about it.

Guess who's the #1 console this morning?

Also, apparently region free.

And hard drive upgradeable.

The hits keep coming...


Despite not being interested in consoles, I have to admit that Sony stole the show with this price. Except for hardcore XBox fanatics, everybody has to admit that this means big trouble for Microsoft. Expect a price drop very soon!

Great job by Sony, Microsoft can bury all their unsold Xflops in the desert next to those ET cartridges. I'll be going PS4, and buying two or three of them at once.

This reminds me of when Sony stole the thunder from the Sega Saturn when they announced their lower price for the PS2 at E3. Even that doesn't compare to just how thoroughly they took them apart today. There are some funny, funny gifs being pumped out right now.

Jesus, I almost feel bad for Microsoft after the bruising Sony gave them. Almost.

I cannot recall, in recent memory, a more thorough beating at E3...

Never would have guessed they'd go $399...I suspect MS expected Sony to go $599, or worst case, $499, and they'd be on even footing.

But $399 pulled the rug out from under them! And the whole "used sales allowed/no connection required/no phone home every 24 hours" was just beautiful to watch unfold...

I would just LOVE to see Balmer's rage tonight...
