    Fable Legends Hyped or Not??

    in Microsoft Discussion on 19 August 2014

    At this moment, no. The game always seems to get buried by titles that stand out more. If it finds a good release window where there is little competition it might grab my attention....

    Is going XBox Exclusive franchise suicide at this point?

    in Gaming Discussion on 19 August 2014

    I guess this is in response to the Tomb Raider deal. A lot of people have drawn comparisons between Tomb Raider and Uncharted. Yet despite Tomb Raider being available across two platforms Uncharted pretty much outsold it by 50%. Tomb Raider was an expensive game to create and despite selling relatively well barely broke even. As part of the exclusivity deal Phil Spencer confirmed they are...

    [POLL] Which established franchise will become the next XBox exclusive?

    in Gaming Discussion on 17 August 2014

    Microsoft already has a "strategic partnership" with EA. This why the majority of their games are usually marketed towards Xbox. Titanfall exclusive, FIFA exclusive modes, Dragon Age Add-On content first on Xbox e.t.c. From the poll options, Batman is unlikely as WB games have a partnership with Sony. Fallout has historically sold better on Xbox so that would make sense and there were...

    How Sony could Lockdown and win the generation aka Nuke incoming

    in Sony Discussion on 17 August 2014

    Considering the prices they have being trying to charge I don't think PS Now is a particularly cheap service to run. It would be an awesome value add to PS+ but I just don't see the sums adding up for Sony....

    CD Projekt RED Comments on Xbox One Exclusive Collector’s Edition Items Following Heated Response from Consumers

    in Gaming Discussion on 17 August 2014

    Wow, the amount of entitlement in this thread. CD Projekt Red go further than most when trying to balance their business and consumer needs. Amusing people are considering boycotting the game and I'm disgusted by the people insinuating they are going to pirate it. This is why DRM exists in the first place. The Witcher 3 marketing has been aligned with Xbox for a while now. The collectors...

    Empire Magazine - The 100 Greatest Games of all Time

    in Gaming Discussion on 15 August 2014

    Shenmue is my favourite game and I was surprised to see it riding high at number 7. Feel like it's too soon for The Last of Us to be a number 1, you can see how a lot of the games on the list have influenced gaming going forward and we haven't really had time to see how The Last of Us will influence gaming in the future....

    Games You Regret Buying the Most

    in Gaming Discussion on 03 August 2014

    Wild Metal on the Dreamcast. Think I was attracted by the RockStar logo on the box. That game was horrible. Star Ocean on the Xbox 360. Had it for a few years now but still haven't played further than an hour in. I'm finding that a lot with JRPGs recently....

    Sony: EA Access Doesn't "Represent Good Value To The PlayStation Gamer"

    in Sony Discussion on 30 July 2014

    I don't understand why they don't give PlayStation owners the choice. Are they afraid it will take away people from PS+ or perhaps they are worried people won't pay their extorionate PlayStation Now prices. A statement like this isn't going to do wonders for Sony's relationship with EA....

    Xbox One vs PS4: How Microsoft's Console is Getting Better and Better Than Sony's

    in Microsoft Discussion on 30 July 2014

    To be fair Microsoft have been on their game recently. The monthly updates keep rolling out and I'd say they have the better first party lineup in 2014. Ofcourse this is because they are being outsold by the competition in the first place. Microsoft wouldn't have switched to a games focus if it wasn't for the PS4 success. I hope Microsoft win an NPD or two just to keep Sony on their toes....

    COD Adwanced Warfar pre order is really bad! (Update)

    in Gaming Discussion on 29 July 2014

    Everyone declared Call of Duty: Ghosts a failure and it still sold over 20M. People will turn out for Advanced Warfare like they always do. Pre-orders were driven by next-gen hype last year and I'm yet to see the Call of Duty marketing machine get rolling yet....

    What does it seem that most Destiny Haters are XB1 and WiiU Devotees?

    in Gaming Discussion on 29 July 2014

    bigjon said: Any guesses? Well, the Wii U seems easy, its a big game not on Wii U. XB1 at 1st does not make sense, its on the XB1... ya PS4 gets some minor stuff but nothing that will make XB1 version seem 2nd rate. or... Maybe its the fact they are afraid it if executed like many feel it will be; itwill essential make the one killer app they have in Halo an afterthought? I guess it...

    Is Sunset Overdrive going to boost XB1 sales

    in Microsoft Discussion on 28 July 2014

    Microsoft are giving it a marketing push but the hype train hasn't really materialised for it. It was plastered everywhere at E3, they shown it again at Comicon and I expect we'll see more at GamesCom. Looks like a fun throwback to the Dreamcast era and I'm sure there will be a sales bump but not a huge one. ...

    Has Sony made FromSoftware a well respected studio?

    in Gaming Discussion on 28 July 2014

    "Has Sony made FromSoftware a well respected studio?" No, they were known for their Armoured Core games way before Souls came along.  Demon's Souls is actually the spirtual succesor to their King's Field series.  Sony actually passed on publishing the game internationally.That said From Software are known for creating hardcore games, but their games tend to perform poorly on a...

    Halo Nightfall Movie FIRST TRAILER!!!!! Produced by Ridley Scott

    in Gaming Discussion on 25 July 2014

    Looks intriguing, not sure how this ties into Halo 5 though. Is this just self contained story to set up Locke or will the antagonist carry through to Halo 5. I'm expecting the Arbiter has a big role to play in Halo 5 and early hints suggest he may be an antagonist....

    Microsoft CEO Nadella: don't confuse Xbox with company's "core"

    in Gaming Discussion on 16 July 2014

    Wow people can sure make an issue out of anything. Microsoft has always been about business and it's core office suite/operating system and now more recently cloud services. They have always treated the Xbox as a brand, you don't find the Microsoft logo prominently all over the Xbox marketing, hardware and packaging....

    Halo:Combat Evolved vs Super Mario 64 vs Soul Calibur. The Rating Game.

    in Gaming Discussion on 08 July 2014

    Critically I'd say Super Mario 64 is the most revered. Halo had a huge impact for the Xbox brand and had a huge impact on console FPS going forward. Soul Calibur was a masterpiece and is probably my favourite fighting game still. However I don't think it leaves the same legacy that the others did. Too many sequels and iterations that haven't really evolved the franchise since it's...

    Xbox to be $800 in china, with restricted games.

    UPDATE: Microsoft has responded with the following: "Microsoft Stores China is conducting a special promotion to engage local fans and customers that includes an opportunity to win a RMB 4,999 Microsoft store e-coupon every week in July. This amount is unrelated to the price of the Xbox One in China. We have not made any pricing announcements of Xbox One in China." /endthread...
