I should get around to playing the other ones on the PS3, considering I have them.
Infamous 1 -> Infamous 2 is the best example I can think of for console games changing a lot within a generation. Some of that was probably the developer being unfamiliar with the PS3, but I played Infamous 2 first (because of it being free on PS+), then went back to play Infamous 1. How can I put this? Random NPC #3 in Infamous 2 looks more detailed and has better animations than the player character in Infamous 1. The lighting effects in the first one were pretty good, but the second game vastly improved almost every other aspect of the series. I was shocked by how different it was.

If you're just getting into the series now, I would probably just skip the first game. They're both very fun games but the second one has much more going for it.

Titanfall is coming to PC, too. So, if you've got a decent gaming rig already, no need to get an Xbox720p to play it.

Though true, I'm guessing multiplayer will be more fun on consoles, like it was with MW. More people, less cheating (at least there was on the Xbox), and fewer people with insane rigs dominating.

Some games lend themselves really well to PCs. Others lend themselves well to consoles.

If I were to buy a system now, it's easily the Xbone. The PS4 offers nothing right now. The Xbone offers some really cool TV features that fix 90% of what I hate my cable box for. If it had DVR functionality I'd buy it. But it doesn't, and since I don't have to buy anything right now, I'm not. I will happily wait for games. PS4 has some sweet ones coming. That Call of Duty with Mechs, though, is the game that will probably get me to finally buy a system.

I'll own both. But neither has me excited right now. The last system I bought (or was bought for me) at launch was the SNES, so it's not a huge surprise. And I spent the first 6 months with the SNES playing the NES more, because it had the better games coming out.

Titanfall is coming for the PC as well.

Yeah, that's the great thing about PC. No launch, tons of great stuff already, and great stuff in the pipeline. It's a steadily increasing slope of goodness.

I think the PS4 has more going for it - cheaper, more powerful, a big focus on indie games, the improvements to the gamepad, heavier focus on games, etc. - but the launches for both systems are fairly mediocre, at least if you have access to multiple systems.

If you look at day one exclusives, it's basically Knack (which is getting hammered) and Killzone. On the Xbox 180, there is Forza, Ryse, Zoo Tycoon, Dead Rising 3, Zumba Fitness, and Fighter Within. None of those scream out to me and, having access to a high end gaming PC, I will be playing the multi-platform releases on PC.

For now, I am sticking with my PS4 preorder, mostly as a Netflix and Blu-Ray box. I am canceling my Xbox 180 preorder and I am still trying to figure out that damned Wii U. Nintendo really botched the hardware of the system, but I definitely want the new kitty Mario game and I wouldn't mind playing the HD Zelda game.
Still...buying a Wii U? That's a hard pill to swallow.
Meanwhile, where are the amazing AAA games? I realize there will be things for June and later of 2014, but the next few months look somewhat barren for all the systems.

Supporting the PC Master Race,
Ray

Still "not yet shipped" here. I ordered on June 10th as well.

Hope they're not holding it for lego marvel, as that was a totally different order.

edit: Delivery still listed on the 15th, by 8PM. Someone on /r said their ship date was quietly changed, and they had to complain to get it changed back, so I screenshotted that earlier.

Had both the Xbone and PS4 on order since June 10. (Basically since they started accepting pre-orders.) Annoying that others have shipped but mine has still not. Oh well, as long as I get it Friday.

Pretty much, yeah. A couple of years from now nobody will even really remember these games in all likelihood.

I still got one



Check your status again nin, mine shows they're preparing it for shipping right now so a tracking number will probably be there in the next few hours. It does look like they're sending them today, anyway.

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

Killzone 2 was good as long as you ignored anything anyone said. The combat was actually varied and there were weird enemy types and situations but the plot was abysmal. Basically Starship Troopers with space nazis instead of bugs.

Yeah, I didn't even know they delivered on Saturdays! As long as it's not pushed back to Monday I'll be ok.. I suppose..

PlayStation 4 doesn't support 3D Blu-rays

Not that I would use this anyways, it does seem odd that it doesn't support 3D out of the box. Hopefully it will be added via a software update though.

Was that for a specific bundle? I just checked the basic version (no games/controllers) and it says it's not available.

Edit: Never mind, just saw it was for the Battlefield 4 and Knack bundles only. Unfortunately, I already have the 2nd controller as well as 4 games on the way.

Yeah, I think all I saw was bundles. Sorry.
