PS4 launches November 15th!

    Sony announced at the end of their Gamescom press conference that PS4 will be available in the US November 15th!

    Also worth noting, If you purchase Battlefield 4, Assassin's Creed IV, Call of Duty: Ghosts, or Watch Dogs on Playstation 3, you will be able to buy the Playstation 4 digital version for a "significantly discounted price" once it becomes available. EA, Activision, Ubisoft, and WB have partnered up with Sony in this deal most likely to combat Gamestop's plan to offer a similar deal where you can trade in those said games and upgrade to the next gen version for $10.

.

It will be interesting to see how they go about doing this. I assume you will be able to keep your PS3 version making this a better deal than gamestops. The question is are they going to put a coupon in the game case, and will gamestop stoop to opening each case and removing the coupons as they have done in the past to benefit their own program. Oh, and console digital downloads FTW. I'll never leave the house to buy a game again.

Its about time they announced the release date. And its just in time for the mad black friday rush. Unless its a coupon in the case, I wonder what would stop people from getting the digital version at the huge discount, then trading in their physical disc to gamestop and getting another copy with their discount. If they put in coupons, I wouldn't put it past gamestop to steal the coupons again.

No doubt Sony did this for that exact reason. Gamestop may get your $10, but you can just go to another gamestop and trade it in, get a good $30 in store credit to discount yourself a totally different game. Instead of a coupon, maybe the PS4 can read the disk and your PS+ History? Then again all you'd need is a copy of the disc without ever buying it to get the discount rate.

I don't know.. I wouldn't put it past gamestop to drop the trade in rate for those games to $0.38 and blame their promotion as the reason for the trade in price.

Then you just promptly sell it to someone else for $30-40 after you paid only $10 and profit off gamestop the way they normally do on you. XD

Or you can just take it to wal-mart and exchange it for a different game as long as its still sealed.

I like what I saw.. I hope all that sharing is independent from facebook and real names tho. I can only imagine my parent's reactions when I share a video of my character brutally murdering someone. :P

 

Mom: "Why do you glorify killing people?"

 

Random guy who sees my video because a facebook privacy setting was wrong: "This guy is planning on murdering people! Police!"

 

-_-;

Better than the conclusion to what someone might think if I were to ever share what I might do with Female Khajiits & Female Argonians....

1. I am not doing a damage control, but I do want to clarify one thing. But first, yes, devs I know — and as someone has shown it before in this thread, some other devs already talked about it too — claim that there's 50% speed difference WHEN DEVELOPING in cross-gen/next-gen PS4/XO games. So there we are, I said it and I stand by it. Notice: WHEN DEVELOPING. It'll become clear in a second.

2. We're in the final stages of game and SW development now. We're working closely with 3rd parties as we approach launch. Reports we're hearing back from developers consistently are confirming that cross-plat games are running the same on both platforms.

 

Because of Xbox One's lower specs during initial game development along with MS's reputation for forcing developers to use their console's specs as the standard, all the games for PS4 will look the same for the Xbox One.. which means that MS is most likely screwing the PS4's potential because of their policies.

****Microsoft refuses to release games if they are inferior to versions on another platform.****

When PS4 takes off ahead of Xbox this will change. The Exclusives will look better, but lets look at Bungie here, becasue I think they are making the biggest statement. Although Destiny is coming to Xbox 1, how much have we actually heard about it for Xbox 1? Bungie has attended only Sony events or timeslots at game shows to show off their game. They've announced exclusive DLC for PS4. It really seems to be a slight at MS by not even acknowledging publicly that the X1 version even exists. 

 

If they run these games a max on PC while developing, Lets say Titanfall comes out for PS4 a year after its release... whats stopping them from releasing a visually better version after they have already sold a crap ton of copies for Xbox 1? Truth of the matter is, MS only gained this policy last gen after being super successful over the blundering PS3. PS2 was king and Xbox was dirt in the previous era.

 

But in all actuality Activision could be the unlikely hero if they wanted to be. They could make COD look visually superior on PS3 than on Xbox 1... I couldn't imagine Xbox not publishing COD just because it didn't look as good. Activision has already stated the PC version is going to look the best for the 1st time in the franchises modern history. If the sales falter like they have been for the Ghost, anything can happen. MS will have to swallow their pride sooner or later, because devs aren't going to take bullying from a console that isn't the top seller. Sony is going for broke in the North American market so hard that Japan isn't getting PS4 til February.

They say localization issues are causing the delay, but I'm agreeing with you about them going for broke in NA. I'm guessing the pre-orders in North American were so huge they had to delay it in Japan because there wouldn't be enough consoles.

 

I understand why game companies want their product to be similar on consoles in terms of support and design.. but if one system can benefit from better graphics, while the other can't.. then they should allow it like they do on PC.

 

I just remembered something.. For the 360, BF3 had the HD graphics as an optional install because there were numerous Xbox 360s that didn't have hard drives:

That game could have looked drastically different on the 360. Imagine if the HD pack wasn't available.. nobody would have bought BF3 on the 360. XD

      Ordered some Corsair Void Pro headphones for Prime Day. I've been putting off a new headset for PC for way too long. I have my cord duct taped and wires are coming out of the ear pieces. Its hard to give this headset up because its lasted me 15-16 years. Its just some cheap ass standard Microsoft headphones i bought at target years and years ago. The ear cushions look like cloth because the fake leather coating all fell off or deteriorated. Even with all the wires falling apart, it still works without a hitch. I don't really need turtles for PC, but the Corsair's were on a pretty decent discount, so I went with it.

      So I finished watching the first season of My Hero Academia tonight and you were right DX I absolutely love the show. I think most of that has to do with my absolute adoration for All Might but I could be wrong (but I'm sure I'm not, you can't hate the man he's just fucking perfect).
      Gotta say for a shounen series it certainly has a lot going for it. Great humor, awesome character development and characters , a good story (I only say good for now as it's only S1 that I've finished, I hear it gets a lot better), and a pretty kick ass soundtrack. Not going to say I don't have any problems with the show (it suffers from some of the things I hate about shounen series) but those are greatly overshadowed by everything I said before.
      I'm honestly looking forward to starting S2 tomorrow (thank god I'm on vacation) and hopefully starting S3 before I go back to work (if I don't get lost in the myriad of other things I have to do this week).

      I completed my 6th world completion on Guild Wars 2. It will probably be my last. Mounts definitely made this one much easier to complete, but it still wasn't much fun. My first two runs were done the old school way with WvW map requirements. My third, forth, and fifth were done post HoT with gliding, and elite specs providing me with more mobility and power. This last one took less than half the time, but the hearts are so tedious, it's too much. The Beetle is cool for zipping around the map and unfogging everything. You may pick up a few WP and POI along the way, but if you were to move from heart to heart, half the time you'd just get your boost meter full and you'd be at your destination already. The raptor is still the best for these scenarios. The best thing the Beetle is for is getting to an event fast before it completes. Also the skimmer made maps dominated by lakes and ocean so much faster. With 10 gifts of Exploration, I doubt I'll ever grind out the Gift of Mastery track 10 times to go with it. I kind of wish I would have bought more than I did before that change occurred.

      My router shat out on me today and screwed me for over an hour as I thought it was my internet. My power went out and after it came back on my router started freaking out and will only stay connected for 5 seconds at a time and then go down again for 4-5 minutes. I hooked up my old back up router in the meantime. Now I have to call up the support line tomorrow and see if Tenda will honor their warranty. I ordered a TP-Link router off amazon a little while ago for a cheap $59 on sale. It seems decent enough and I've never had any issues with TP-Link before.
