    is Kinect a fad?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 23 December 2013

    pbroy said:Sony Fanboys - "Yes", but they still end up buying the Eye to get the same experience and show M$ fans their console can do everything Xbone can. M$ Fanboys - "No". It's an import part of the UI that the Xbox One was built around. It's a low level AI that shouldn't be dismissed. Once you experience will never want to go back. Shouting at the TV is OK I think the above...

    is Kinect a fad?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 23 December 2013

    Is Kinect a fad? Is it a device that attracted wild enthusiasm that died fairly quickly? Well, yes. Obviously. It was hailed as the next step in gaming. Controllerless and awesome. Everyone was excited, especially its detractors, as they had something new to attack. But, regardless of these detractors and the fears and doubt they spread, the Kinect sold superbly well. Everyone wanted to try it...

    How Long Before The Xbox One Sells 1 Million Units In The US?

    PS4 HDD will have 408GB of usable storage

    in Sony Discussion on 13 November 2013

    Well, that's confirmed what I already suspected: it's time to buy a larger HDD. I did it for the PS3; seems I'll have to do the same for PS4. Never been an issue for my 360 and WiiU -- but, I suppose, no PS+ on those consoles....

    Update: Forza Motorsport 5 doesn't require a day one update to play after all

    in Microsoft Discussion on 17 July 2013

    A day-one patch, whilst annoying, is nothing to be upset about. It's the state of modern gaming, unfortunately, and is very common. However, a game with an offline component that ships without all the code required to play it offline is a worrying precedent. And an exclusive one (in that it excludes some gamers). As a gamer, I would rather the game was shipped when it was finished. Or, at...

    Why do you want to leave, have left, or are thinking about leaving this site?- This thread has helped fix the database, you can all thank our one and only game admin now!

    in General Discussion on 01 June 2013

    Why did I leave, and why do I continue to engage only rarely? Two primary reasons: 1) The pervasive adverts. 2) The arrogance of the staff. For 1), I found the full-page pop-ups, infected ads, and the noisy sods I couldn't silence to be nigh-on intolerable. They literally drove me away from engaging here for a long time. Now I only visit rarely, and still find the site a minefield of...

    Margaret Thatcher RIP.

    in Politics Discussion on 08 April 2013

    To give you an idea of just how hated Thatcher is here in Scotland, there are parties going on right now because she's dead. I have friends on Facebook posting about it. They're in attendance. They lived through what her policies did to the people they loved, and it seems they are looking for release. Not my bag, but I understand. Further, I'm spotting parties popping up all over the country...

    I want a Vita, but not for the reason you'd expect

    in Sony Discussion on 21 January 2013

    badgenome said: Hapimeses said: Is that a problem for Sony? Hint: if it were, they wouldn't do it. Sony isn't exactly renowned for having the best business acumen, but it's a pretty good bet that they're not cutting their own throats here. It could conceivably become a problem, I suppose, if people stopped buying software altogether and waited for it to come out "free" on...

    I want a Vita, but not for the reason you'd expect

    in Sony Discussion on 21 January 2013

    badgenome said:Because in order to keep those "free" games from PS+, you have to pay a subscription fee? I think you miss the mark slightly. After all, once a game is completed and rinsed of whatever joy it holds, very few people really need, or even want, to 'keep' a game. And, if someone desperately did want to 'keep' a title for whatever odd reasons may be imagined, the game can...

    The ULTIMATE question gets the ULTIMATE answer!

    in General Discussion on 11 January 2013

    Can't believe I watched all that. I laughed more than once. The numbers are absolute bobbins, and Goku was probably sold short, but the conclusion seemed sound to me, primarily as it was based on the core themes and philosophies of the characters rather than a bunch of increasingly unlikely 'what ifs'. Thanks for the link....

    Wii U is now 1 month old and has sold 1.8 million units. How is it doing?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 18 December 2012

    Wii U. I dunno. I'm not convinced. I've bought one, but I'm not convinced. Anyway, to answer the OP, the sales are alright. Not exceptional, but not rubbish. It's pretty much performing as I expected, which isn't brilliant news for Nintendo, as I didn't expect it to do all that well. I imagine Nintendo would love for Wii U to be another Wii, but I can't see that happening. Not as things...

    Xbox 360 and PS3: Success or Failure?

    in Gaming Discussion on 18 December 2012

    Actually, I think the Blu-Ray point is a good one. For all I laid into the PS3 with my first post, it is worth adding that because of the PS3, Blu-Ray won the HD format war. So, where the PS3 was certainly a failure in its initial years, it still managed to pull Blu-Ray through to winning the physical video format war, and that brings Sony (and many others) different advantages. So, the PS3...

    Friend selling PSVita with memory card for 130 ! MInt condition. Should I get it?

    in Sony Discussion on 18 December 2012

    It's a brilliant device. I'd personally snap it up at that price. Subscribe to PS+ and never need to buy a game again. Also, don't buy Gravity Rush for 20. A PS+ sub is cheaper, gives you Gravity Rush (and Uncharted, and Space Blobs, and more), and will give you a ton of games for PS3, too. You will get significantly more bang for your buck with PS+. And 8Gbs is unfortunately very easy to...

    Xbox 360 and PS3: Success or Failure?

    in Gaming Discussion on 18 December 2012

    It's all about comparisons and expectations, really. With that in mind, the PS3 failed big time. As a gamer, I love the machine, but look at what the PSX and PS2 achieved, then look to the PS3. 1st, 1st, then last. Sony screwed up the release and initial feature set big time, and have been playing catch-up ever since. Sure, it looks likely the console will probably come 2nd by the end of the...

    Is PlayStation Plus hurting Sony's retail sales?

    in Sony Discussion on 15 December 2012

    Standing contrary to most in this thread, I've bought fewer games this year, or held off purchases, because of PS+. This is for two reasons: 1) I'm convinced any digital release will pop up for free on PS+ , or at a decent discount, so almost never buy digital products at release (and my decision has been repeatedly proven correct to the point that it seems daft to me to pay full price for...
