I really appreciated the difficulty level of the XIII series; players got soft since the FFI-FFIV days, when you get your head kicked in constantly. Limiting your level in FFXIII made it decidely more challenging. LR is good, especially since it has my ever-beloved New Game+ (God bless you, Chrono Trigger, my love.). I didn't like the super weird ending of FFXIII-2, where it reverts back to Lightning. It was fun, but completely out of step with rest of the game.

And with a "To be continued", man that got me angry, lol.

Yeah lol, try LR. If you liked the previous 2, you'll (eventually) like it, too.

I'll eventually do it, right now I'm working on older games, so that can take some time

In UK, situation is now really worrying for XB1: PS4 has 3 SKU ranked higher than the competitively priced XB1 at amazon.co.uk:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Best-Sellers-PC-Video-Games-Consoles/zgbs/videogames/676171011/ref=zg_bs_nav_vg_h__1_vg_h_


PS4 ranks: 52 (GTA5 bundle 349£), 70 (black 329£), 139 (white 329£)
XB1 rank: 153 (299£)

Compared to that, XB1 is doing really well at Amazon.com!

Amazon UK has 23 different X1 Skus(game/accessory/movie/tablet pack ins from 299£-444£) compared to 5 for PS4. I dont think Amazon UK would be the best place to determine sales.



Getting an XBOX One for me is like being in a bad relationship but staying together because we have kids. XBone we have 20000+ achievement points, 2+ years of XBL Gold and 20000+ MS points. I think its best we stay together if only for the MS points.

Nintendo Treehouse is what happens when a publisher is confident and proud of its games and doesn't need to show CGI lies for five minutes.

I think we should stop using Best Buy's site as an indicator.

Bestbuy.com never had the new bundle for sale, yet it's high on the list.  It is not possible for something with 0 orders to be a best seller.  I can tell you that this list doesn't match up internal data, but I won't get into details for obvious reasons.  Based on the evidence, I don't think we should use Bestbuy.com bestsellers list as a reliable indicator.  This conclusion has never been as obvious as it is now.

Why not?  Have you seen how many PS4 Skus they have?  I stopped counting at 30.



Woah, Mario Party bundle strikes back!
Also, Kingdom Hearts 3 getting a lot of preorders for a game with no release date...

I cannot wait for Mario Party 10. My gf thinks I'm overexcited, but that loser has never played one.



PS4: #9
X1: #22

With X1's stock waning, the drop has been very steep.

That's the first time I've seen the X1 fall below #20... :O

It was also only 3-4 places behind the PS4 earlier...

Yup. They only had one left at that point, so it took a serious nose dive.

Actually, there are plenty in stock. The "one left in stock" only refers to ONESALE. If you look at this link (http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00NFXON1Q/ref=olp_page_2?ie=UTF8&condition=new&startIndex=10 ) and scroll down, you'll see that Amazon, itself, still has X1's in stock. It's just that there are several 3rd parties selling the bundle at lower prices.
