    Which console looks more appealing to you now? Wii U or PS4?

    in Gaming Discussion on 21 February 2013

    I'll wait for the announcement of the next XBox and details about their price ... At the moment, I see little from the PS4 that I wouldn't get by simply getting a better graphics card for the PC I will be building at the end of the year; and the $100 to $200 more I will spend on the graphics card will likely be less than I would pay for the PS4. ...

    Slimebeast said: But Nintendo is trying to sell a $350 console to a demografix that is expecting to pay no more than $250 for a console. Meanwhile Sony can easily sell the PS4 at $450 to a demografix that is used to buy consoles at $400. Back when I was talking about the PS-Vita and 3DS I had mentioned that I think the typical consumer doesn't evaluate the hardware of a system...

    Update: Randy Pitchford to “lose a huge amount of money” over Aliens Colonial Marines backlash

    in Gaming Discussion on 16 February 2013

    Ultimately, if I was betting, I would say the difference in what was shown and what was delivered (probably) has more to do with the publisher than the developer ... I suspect that the development team wanted to produce a high quality, highly polished title, and wanted to produce a game that was equal to or better than what was demoed, but Sega didn't provide the funding and resources that the...

    I don't think most people from other countries think most Americans are like that, but they tend to believe that (for some reason) there are far more uneducated and trashy people in the United States than there are in similarly developed nations. I think there is some truth to that, but I think this is caused by America being fairly unique in that it celebrates its trashy side; and this (of...

    Straight To The Point: What REALLY went wrong with PlayStation All Stars: Battle Royale?

    in Sony Discussion on 11 February 2013

    I've used this analogy before but I think it is appropriate for this game ... Suppose Nintendo wanted to produce an answer for Gran Turismo, so they got an above average studio to produce an above average game that had (less than) half the content of Gran Turismo and was lacking cars that were as well known as any of the cars in Gran Turismo. How well would anyone expect this game to...

    ‘Dragon Quest X’ sales below expectations- Since when? I thought it was doing well?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 11 February 2013

    I think this has far more to do with it being a MMO than anything else ... Since (before) World of Warcraft was released, many publishers saw the massive revenue potential of having 1+ million users paying $10/month to play a game (often for years) and have released multiple MMO games. The vast majority of these games have struggled to find a dedicated audience that can cover the infastructure...

    The devil's in the detail for something like this ... While I would never spend a dime on a Surface tablet, if my company was paying for it and setting up the office infastructure to take advantage of it I would want a Windows tablet; and those are (probably) two ifs that most people will have and the vast majority of companies won't meet.
