    Predictions for the future - Xbox One, PS4, Wii U - My final thread.

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 02 November 2013

    As my final thread on this website, before my permaban tomorrow, I'd like to post some thoughts and predictions about technology pertaining to consoles, maybe some sales predictions. None of this should be taken seriously or with any actual evidence behind it. I'm just writing things down that I feel could happen or that I think would be cool if it did. 1. Prediction: Console hardware will be...

    Nightsurge's Farewell to VGChartz - Permaban Request

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 29 October 2013

    Good evening everyone, It has become apparent to me over the last several months that this website is not what it used to be. I really miss the glory days of 2008-2011 on this website. Back then I enjoyed coming here to argue with others, discuss sales data, look at game related news, and share my own opinions/insights. However, all this website has become for me lately is an annoyance and a...

    Xbox One 50% more than PS4!

    Xbox One Controller SmartGlass Cell Phone clip. Any of you seen this before?

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 12 October 2013

    I think the idea is great, actually. But having not tried this out, this particular product, I feel like it would make the controller very top heavy, and the product itself looks a bit chincy.  What are you guys' thoughts, for those of you interested in SmartGlass, would this be convenient/appealing? Or would you prefer a tablet of 7 to 10" size for your smartglass...

    Battlefield 4 Xbox One gameplay footage! Looking good! Offscreen 1080p Youtube

    Next Gen (PS4/XOne) vs Last Gen (PS3/360) overall hardware performance

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 10 September 2013

    So I'll start this off with a quick note that I am not sure if these are accurate figures. It's been so long, I don't remember all the info from the beginning of the generation, and finding articles from back then is a bit difficult. But anyways, here is what I found for the overall hardware performance of each machine: PS3 - 2TFXbox 360 - 1.0TF----------------------------------------Difference...

    CoD: Ghosts Season Pass - $50?!?! What the hell.

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 08 September 2013

    I've always gotten the "Hardened" edition of CoD games in the past, or the season pass, because they were $20 for all the map packs and actually meant saving money over buying the maps separately. But now I have noticed that CoD Ghosts has a $50 season pass this time around?! Still just 4 map packs, so why in the world did the price more than double? For once, I will be happy playing the normal...

    [UPDATE] Xbox One Could Possibly Feature a Powerful Discrete GPU + APU rumor - New Sources and Info!

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 12 November 2014

    At Hot Chip 2013, Microsoft unveiled an overview of the SOC architecture powering their next generation Xbox One console. The Xbox One’s accelerated processing unit covers a die size of 363mm2 which is huge considering AMD’s flagship Tahiti chip comes with a die size of 389mm2.

    What countries are confirmed for PS4 launch?

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 15 August 2013

    I tried to google it but couldn't find anything confirmed.   Could someone please link me some confirmed launch details? I've seen several articles saying the Xbox One delay in Europe will leave the door open for PS4, but none of the articles state when/where the PS4 will launch.   If no one knows, hopefully we find out at Gamescon....

    N4G is just sad... All they do is trololololol

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 23 July 2013

    I almost hate that VGChartz has their articles pinned to the main page, because it makes me want to check them out. But then I see EVERY Xbox One article have tons of Sony trolls on it, whether the article is good or bad. Every pro-Sony comment gets tons of "Agrees", even the most trolling retarded posts. While if you even dare HINT at anything pro-Xbox in a comment (even if the overall comment...

    Will Microsoft announce the $299 + $15/month Xbox One with Xbox Live deal?

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 13 June 2013

    Obviously MS does not need this deal to have a successful launch. The main buyers will be the hardcore followers for the first several months. But after that, I expect to see MS roll out this plan to compete with the lower priced PS4. Either that or introduce a price cut in the first year. The amount of profits they are making at $499 has to be quite large and beneficial to their company, so I...

    Microsoft: A compromise for those against your "check-in" and disc-based policies

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 13 June 2013

    The Microsoft announced check-in is an unfortunate side-effect of the push to have all your content available from anywhere. And as a result, many gamers are turned off by the idea internet being required for longterm gameplay and the inability to sell games anywhere they want. Those 2 aspects seem to be the major complaints from those opposed to the Xbox One. My suggestion to MS would be to...

    Xbox One Details: Clarification for the Haters

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 10 June 2013

    As we all know, Microsoft posted all the details to clarify their stance on a variety of issues: online requirements, used games, sharing/renting/selling games, etc. I have seen a lot of confusion still, around the gaming sites, so I wanted to help lay it out for these people in a simpler context. Another driving force for me making this thread is because I saw people on the news making...

    Hey everyone, I am getting married in just over 3 hours to the girl of my dreams! I'll be missing all the action next week while we enjoy our honeymoon. Hopefully I will have some time to checkout the new Xbox stuff while I am gone. Don't miss me too much, guys!...

    Destiny resembles Halo almost TOO much?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 11 March 2013

    Now, I'm not basing this off of a finished product, obviously, but from the trailers and images I have seen so far, Destiny looks a LOT like Halo in quite a few areas. I understand that it is the same development studio and there will be similarities, but I couldn't help but watch the trailer and say things like, "That's a Halo character, that's a Halo vehicle, that's a Halo weapon, that's a Halo...
