    Sony is focusing on Hard-Core Gamers for PS5

    in Sony Discussion on 01 July 2019

    Conina said: konkari said: By the way, I know just one 3rd party game where Sony has had timed exclusivity, and that is Destiny. Considering that it was a new IP, and it has had several rough seasons, I would say Sonys commitment has probably helped to get Destiny over its crisis. Is that so anti consumer.  Any other 3rd party games with Sony exclusive content out...

There was one. They were escaping the Shinra building and Cloud and the gang stole a bike and a pickup truck to escape.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxBLJcEX-xI The bike...

    First-Person or Third-Person?

    in Gaming Discussion on 20 June 2019

    d21lewis said: I see a few people saying that first person makes them feel more immersed. It's often the opposite for me. I often feel like a head strapped to a gun. In the early days of 3D gaming when we had games like Doom, Quake, Powerslave, etc. I'd often pretend I was a robot on wheels. I always feel like I'm a midget when I play FPS the gun height always feels low compared to...

What started out as a short break to deal with some challenges that life threw at me turned into an unintentional long break. Thankfully, things are better now.I'm amazed at how this thread has kept going after so many months without an update. It's great to...

And sorry, but Nintendo didn't pushed the best they could. They certainly could have sold it much cheaper and increased number of releases by increasing the size of the team. I actually don't remember anything outstanding they tried to make...

    Pemalite said: mjk45 said: No us Australians will pay more even if you add 25% to US rrp for the PS5 there are two reasons the first is the dollar difference is around 30% the other is price  gouging the accc have stated in the past that console and games rrp sits well  above the conversion rates and that's factoring in import costs for the consoles and peripherals,...

    Trump's new tariff proposals include a 25% tax on video game consoles

    Pemalite said: The Americans voted for it. - No point worrying about spilt milk.Pricing might actually fall in line with AUD for next-gen hardware? (Though our dollars monetary value is less, so technically we might pay less.)They are pretty much delaying the inevitable though, China will overtake the USA, only a matter of when, not if. - But it will be interesting to see how the trade war...

Edit: Actually the dollar is pretty strong right now, so its not that much of a difference.lol Yeah, and our price in Europe includes VAT.

    Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida calls console gaming niche

    in Sony Discussion on 24 May 2019

    Wyrdness said: mjk45 said:  People are misusing the term, niche is used to describe a specialised segment of a mainstream market, also Yoshida was talking about console gaming and like Rol pointed out it accounts for 25 % of the total games market , it was a poor choice of word, he obviously was trying to demonstrate that the deal for Sony impacts a lot of divisions not just...

    Bofferbrauer2 said: Technically, he's totally right, as every kind of activity is it's own niche of activity. That niche might be huge (see the Marvel Cinematic Universe for movies, for instance), but it's still a niche. Anything that isn't technically niche doesn't have it's own niche and is doomed to fail. Even a monopoly would technically be a niche - it just fills it up to 100%.Console...
