    DayZ "almost certain" to be on PS4

    in Sony Discussion on 01 April 2013

    Day Z is great, not sure how it'd hand itself to the console environment but could be very good if streamlined servers and whatnot come in. Bigger problem on PC for me was finding a server I liked. Which in itself will be interesting - wonder how 'flexible' they could be about servers and stuff on PS4....

    Monster Hunter 3 has Wii U sales rocket in Europe

    in Sales Discussion on 01 April 2013

    I don't know about France (Which saw a spike) but the UK had major price cuts which are far more likely why the Wii U sales spiked. The Zombi-U premium Wii U bundle was 199.99 at the HMV stores all closing down - to give you some perspective since that offers gone now you can get the premium Wii U with NSMB for 265. Pretty much a 25% price cut. The offers a lot harder to find now and that...

    is the 8th Gen Already dead?

    in Gaming Discussion on 28 March 2013

    With the hardware jump being less of a leap then the SD to HD type thing last gen it was inevitable. Most of the early Ps4 / 720 games will have been developed for current gen systems and then 'ported up' with better graphics etc - basically just the PC version on higher settings. It's a double-edged sword, fewer exclusives will hurt it, but the Ps4 is going to have Assassin's Creed IV,...

    EA CEO John Riccitiello Steps Down

    in Gaming Discussion on 18 March 2013

    Long time coming. One of the few CEO's who I think actually gave a **** about games, unfortunately I think his passion for games cost him as he was unable to turn EA in the capitalistic money-exploiting empire investors expected. EA have done a lot of dodgy stuff in the past few years, but they refused to turn a behemoth like Battlefield yearly as they don't want to stagnate the market - just...

    Fuse = Haze

    in Gaming Discussion on 18 March 2013

    A few years ago there was a big rush by EA (and other publishers) to sign up some of the big name developers on deals where the develoeprs retain the rights to the IP. It made EA still a key part as publishers but weakened their strength on the IP and gave develoeprs more strength. I think what has happened is EA gave Insomniac this deal, but have since decided 1) they want to scale back...

    Wii U Initial Sales Better Than PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360?

As per the charts, the WiiU is starting to lose ground each week and month to what the X360 and PS3 did. Unless the games you listed move lots of people to buy the WiiU, its going to continue to...

    Rumour: Final Fantasy XIII Versus will be a PS4 exclusive, budget will be 120m+

    in Sony Discussion on 17 March 2013

    Sounds a bit nuts but makes some sense. The games development was obviously pretty disastrous on ps3 - they announced the thing before the console launched and in that time we've still barely seen a sniff of actual gameplay. I've no idea how the studio managed to royally balls things up for that long, and still get funding, but moving it to Ps4 exclusive then at least makes some sense. One...

    Pachter - Next gen is last gen; projected console sales figures

    in Gaming Discussion on 10 March 2013

    Sounds reasonable at this point, without knowing anything about the nextbox and no idea of pricing for that nor the Ps4 you can't really distinguish the two consoles sales-wise imo. Once we have a clearer idea of nextboxes pricing, Ps4 pricing, and stuff like used game blocking, online subscription fee's and potential exclusive content buyouts it will be easier to distinguish them saleswise....

    Pach-Attack: Is PlayStation Plus Profitable?

    in Gaming Discussion on 17 February 2013

    I think you only need to look at the games they give away to see why it's profitable. The games either have an upcoming sequel to which a PS+ giveaway is a great advertisement for the sequel, or a lot of DLC which will inevitably be bought. Especially as most games have the DLC on sale in their give away month. I doubt Sony is paying the third parties much (if anything) to be a PS+ game of the...

    You people want MOAR Power in 8th Gen consoles, but........

    in Gaming Discussion on 10 February 2013

    The rise in developement costs isn't something inherent to improved hardware. It's more due to the fact that you have to make a better product to take more marketshare - something best highlighted in the NES days. Nintendo made the best games, which clearly had the highest 'budgets' and they dominated the software sales charts. Companies had to spend more to compete. Same thing in the PS1 days -...

    If PS4 and 720 do not support used games then the WiiU has already won

    in Gaming Discussion on 03 February 2013

    It'd be interesting, while it would help Nintendo as they'd have a key selling point over the competition, it may (further) hinder their push for third party support. Any measures like this will have been put in as an industry wide type intiative among both Sony, Microsoft and third parties and as such will probably see more software investments in those hardware platforms. However, I don't...

    Why PS4 will dominate next gen.

    in Gaming Discussion on 02 February 2013

    I voted Microsoft to win but I can't see it having much difference between Sony and Microsoft. Like right now there isn't a lot to distinguish between the two consoles and they generally share close sales, Microsoft tip things in American while Sony pick up larger numbers in Europe and will inevitably get a 5m+ boost from Japan over Microsoft. In the long term Sony seem better equiped to pick up...

    Update: Junction Point closure confirmed

    in Gaming Discussion on 29 January 2013

    In all honesty I think this could of been successful and they'd have shuttered it - Disney have been scaling back on console developement for the past few years and with Disney Infinity it's clear to me they want that to be their main focus now. As soon as Skylanders ripped up retail Epic Mickey 3 was never gonna happen - even if 2 hadn't bombed so hard. The sales of 2 themselves are a combo...

    Rare veteran George Andreas leaves Microsoft for Sony

    in Gaming Discussion on 28 January 2013

    Probably a good move - I've no idea if this guy took Rare in the Kinect direction, had a lot to do with it and what his plans are - but you can't say he didn't do a good job with it. Kinect was a big success as the sports games were some of the top ones. Given that a lot of Sony's more 'casual' output is done through SCEE, a lot of the UK studio's, he's probably a great fit for getting stuff...

    Those who bought DMC at launch: Why?

    in Gaming Discussion on 27 January 2013

    I think a lot of people who read so much into the length of a game are still teenagers or don't have proper lives yet. I don't mean that in a derogatory way - when I was 14 I LOVED the Ps1 RPG's like FF etc - because as a kid you didn't have that much money and you could play them for hours upon hours. They were huge value and after school I pretty much had 6+ hours to play games for - when Socom...

    Third parties will kill the PS4/720

    in Gaming Discussion on 26 January 2013

    I think a lot of the early games will be a crazy mesh of Ps3 / 360 / Ps4 / 720 multiplats, maybe even with a Wii-U port if people start bothering with that. Obviously all the EA sports games will, COD will, Battlefield 4 etc and whatever else. But don't be fooled the Ps4 / 720 games will still be superior for graphics, online and whatever else and thats a big selling point for many people in...
