    Has Sony's focus on games trumped their recent missteps??

    in Gaming Discussion on 05 December 2016

    naruball said: Not exactly. Marketing people exist for a reason. They found out what we already knew, i.e. that the number of people willing to buy UHD blu ray players and 4k Blu rays is tiny. So it would be a bad business decision to include something most people will never use and force them to pay for it. Read my sentence again. I was very clear. I never said that the UHD blu ray alone...

    Has Sony's focus on games trumped their recent missteps??

    in Gaming Discussion on 05 December 2016

    naruball said: In order to say that this is a bad decision, you have to compare the number of people who would choose an xb1 over a ps4 solely because of a UHD blue ray drive with the number of people who care more about a sub $400 price. Clearly Sony tried their best to make it as inexpensive as possible and thus an affordable option. There will always be a reason for consumers to choose...

    mutantsushi said: --snip-- How their success with games counters that? I say that just highlights that they should have taken high road here. Their games, their overall reception for PS4 could have made this gen an unalloyed success for them re: mindshare. These little things take away from that by however much. Certainly people will be looking at Scorpio because of UHD. Whether on OG...

At no point during the hype building of NMS was I under the impression it would be anything other than what i ended it up being. Which is what is confusing me about the hate the game got. An indie dev can only ever do so much. And yet, indie devs will still be pretty much the...

    Obama talks Atheism in the US and Science

    in Politics Discussion on 12 November 2016

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzSMC5rWvos "Agnostic separates me from the conduct of atheists.." As very clearly demonstrated by Nem in this thread. Most agnostics i know dont approach the topic in that way. There's a big difference between Atheists and Agnostics, perhaps more importantly than by definition but by practicality. The very fact that you try so hard to push an Agnostic...

    The Meltdown Over No 4K Blu Ray Player In The PS4 Pro

    in Gaming Discussion on 13 September 2016

    I think it was clear when the PS4 released with a barebones blueray player that the focus of PS4 was fully on gaming. If adding a UHD bluray player would have increased the cost of the PS4 Pro significantly (~$50) then i say its good they left it out. Most people praised Sony when they made the decision to focus on gaming. I think now that a competitor has something over them, and theres...

    UFC 202 Diaz vs McGregor 2

    in Sports Discussion on 19 August 2016

    As a Connor fan I'm dissapointed with his approach to the build up this fight. He allowed Nate into his head. Nate obviously wants the fight to go as it went the last time, and have Connor come out throwing bombs and fade in the 2nd. I say Connor will win it, but he needs to stay composed. It can obviously go either way. I also feel that Connor needs to perform at his best to win whereas Diaz...

I also think its going to be a super rare case where someone watches the E3 2014 video (only!) in 2016 and then immediately goes and buys the game. Naturally that consumer will want to see more videos on the game, they will want to...

    KLAMarine said: Shinobi-san said: I think this is a really unfair way to look at it. Sony have absolutely no say on the quality of video that gets shown at a press conference. Its not like they knew back then how the game would turn out. How would Sony even go about vetting that? Likewise Hello Games could only show what they had at the time, did you want them to dumb the game...
