    When will Sony cut price for the first time and how much?

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 11 March 2015

    What month do you think Sony will cut the price of their console.  PS1 and 2 got $100 price cuts about 2 years after release (little earlier) if I remember correctly.  I'm thinking Sony will want to be as profitable as possible and also want to take advantage of as many bumps from price cuts as possible.  For these reasons I think they'll cut price by just $50.  They will also...

    Best WiiU Virtual Console Games. Ones that hold up TODAY

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 27 February 2015

    So I'm looking through Virtual Console games to stock up on for the post Batman Summer drought already, and I run across a slew of Mega Man games, DKC, some Kirby, Metroid Prime Trilogy, Ninja Gaiden, Castlevania games, and Super Metroid. The only one of those where I played the games in the series this old is DKC and from what I remember it should hold up pretty darn well.  Any suggestions...

    Need Help with a Videogame Paper

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 22 February 2015

    So I have a class on modern Japanese history this semester.  I can write my final paper on any subject dealing with Japan of my choosing from 1850 to the present.  I was going to write on the transition of the US console gaming market from American centric to Japanese centric from 1983-1986.  I was wondering if any of you knew of any interviews (video or text) of any Nintendo rep...

    Two of the most disappointing things happened during PSX

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 10 December 2014

    So I loved the PSX show and many of the games they showed.  However I had to watch it later due to crappy internet out in the woods while hunting (well not actually during the hunt but when I was back at the camper).  The first really crappy thing happened when I was trying to get the 20th anniversary PS4 and I got to the checkout page and then clicked "pay with paypal" and it WOULDN'T...

    Will PS4 reach 50% marketshare now?

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 09 December 2014

    Its percentage has gone down with Xbox almost equalling it these past 2 weeks and WiiU tipping the balance slightly in favor of the other 2 staying above 50%.  Personally I still believe it will get there due to X1's price going back up in January and their best deals being behind them after Xmas.  MS will have to increase price again for at least a couple months to not have lied again...

    I noticed something funny about the main MGS games

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 16 November 2014

    So MGS1-4 we usually think of Snake as the main protagonist of the series, and he is central to the plot not to mention he is the main playable character in 2 out of 4 games (soon to be 5).  But I noticed an annoying and somewhat funny thing about the MGS games.  Only one of them do you really play as an in his prime solid snake.  MGS2 you get a little tease of him but then play as...

    Have review embargos ever been a good sign?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 12 November 2014

    I was noticing this holiday that games like Destiny and ACU, while they may not have gotten horrible reviews, have scored below most expectations and had GLARING flaws that were covered up until just before or even after release.  I also noticed that games like Dragon Age and SoM did not have such embargos and seem to do just fine with the biggest critics just thinking it's boring or samey...

    Zero Punctuation fans I have a question

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 11 November 2014

    After the recent Halo 5 controvercy I've been looking for a specific episode of zero punctuation.  In this episode Yahtzee talks about old FPS like doom and specifically mentions the fast movement and crazy non-ADS weapons.  He keeps saying "remember when (insert old FPS thing here) and it was fun!?"  Anyone have any idea which FPS review this was? EDIT:  For those of you...

    How Early does one need to go out to snag games on Black Friday?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 11 November 2014

    So I was looking at Target's ad and saw SoM for $25.  If Amazon doesn't match that price (which they may) I was planning on going out for at least that on Black Friday (as well as for other people's stuff so I'll be out anyway).  My question is do I need to go out super early to get games on Black Friday?  Do stores normally carry ample stock for their deals?  I'm normally...

    Are the NES mashups worth it?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 04 November 2014

    I'm in a gaming drought because I'm waiting till Black Friday for most releases.  NES mashup seems like a fun romp but fan and critic reviewers have been mixed.  Are these games fun with others?  Is it like a WarioWare title or different?...

    If you thought MCC was an excellent deal...

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 04 November 2014

    Just found the best deal of the year http://www.bestbuy.com/site/god-of-war-saga-playstation-3/6315434.p?id=1218728613769&skuId=6315434 GoW Saga for $18 includes 4 games at 1080p 60fps and even though you're getting what MCC offered already you get an EXTRA game in GoW3!  So which would you say is the better value keeping values in mind.  I suppose it depends how much you value a...

    Mac mini display to HDMI

    in General Discussion, last active on on 28 October 2014

    So I have a 13" Early 2011 Macbook Pro.  I have a cable which is mini display on one end and HDMI on the other.  I have used it for just under 6 months to connect to my HDTV (actually various ones).  It's worked like a charm.  But the last time I tried it, it was having issues.  Both ports still work as the screen adjusts to the TV when I plug in the cable (it flashes...

    Will MS's pricecut give them a November or December win in the US?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 02 November 2014

    So MS has done a $50 pricecut on the base model and every bundle for the holidays.  Sony has been undefeated in the NPD this year and will continue to sell well throughout the holidays, BUT will this pricecut be enough to make a difference and give MS the edge in December or November?  As far as I know the big exclusive for MS in November is MCC while it will have exclusive advertising...

    Reached a Playstation Milestone

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 21 October 2014

    Today I reached a large milestone in my Playstation gaming career.  After freeing the 12th friend in Dust: An Elysian Tail I earned my 50th platinum trophy!  Also passed 4,000 total trophies with the last couple (at 4,004 now) How many platinums have you guys collected over the years?  How often do you even go for trophies? I only go for them if it's a game I enjoy playing anyway...

    Will PS3 ever pass 360 in software sales?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 15 October 2014

    Looking at the numbers this week it made up about 1/2m in software and currently trails by around 40m.  Last year PS3 sold more by about 30m.  Obviously software sales have gone down bigtime this year and yet PS3 has made up another 16m before the holiday season.  Do you think it'll ever pass the 360 in WW software sales?  Personally I think it could happen after holiday 2015...

    Playstation 1 classics

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 17 September 2014

    So I'm gonna have a little gap and while I have ALTTP and such to fill in till Smash comes out I thought I'd catch up on some PS1 games since my PS3 can obviously handle them.  I like platformers and some of my favorite PS1 games are Spider-man 1 and 2, Crash 3 (played them all), Spyro 1 and 2 (played 3), Symphony of the Night, Army Men Air Attack, Looney Tunes Racing, Crash Team Racing, and...

    Will PS4 at the end of its second year match PS3 at the end of its 3rd year?

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 03 September 2014

    According to this site, PS3 at the end of 2008 had sold 19.3m units.  PS4 is currently at just over 10m (already passed PS3 at the END of 2007) so could it have a monster holiday and get a full YEAR ahead of its predecessor in terms of total units? I'll give it a decent 20% chance...

    Top 10 list time!!!!!

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 22 August 2014

    Ok I hate ranking my favorite games I mean it's like picking children so I'm only going to do 10 and limit it to 1 per franchise or this list would probably be all Insomniac and Naughty Dog games.  So here we go! 10.  Jak 3:  My favorite blend of the two styles of the first two games.  It had the open world GTA vibe of the second with the feeling of wonder of the first and an...

    Games that need added to PS2 classics

    in Sony Discussion, last active on on 12 August 2014

    Simple question.  My answer is two-fold.  Onimusha 3 and Spiderman 2 are the ones that need to come RIGHT NOW!  They're not getting HD remakes apparently so why not?  Spiderman 2 is still a blast to swing around in and Onimusha 3 is my second favorite hack and slash apart from God of War series.  It's simply amazing in both puzzles and combat and especially the finale...

    One Negative of Remasters

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 07 August 2014

    It's that they're 60fps.  TLoU Remastered is AMAZING at 60fps.  Even if it dips I tried locking at 30 and it looked like a slideshow.  Now I've never been one to slam 30fps as long as it doesn't dip but if Sleeping Dogs, GTA5, Tomb Raider, and TLoU are all running at 60 or close, going back and forth from them to Destiny, Driveclub, LBP and such will be very jarring.  I hope...
