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

      Tried the Monster Hunter Wold beta after the guys I played Destiny with kept hyping it up... eh. Its not for me. The controls are funky, and the explanation of what I was suppose to be doing wasn't very good. I just beat down a monster until it died? I thought I was suppose to be capturing it? I was expecting a finishing move prompt, or a QTE, for a death blow, but it just seemed anti-climatic. Then it sent me to the "Coming Jan 2018, would you like to Pre-Order?" in which I said no and got sent back to the main menu. At this point I knew I wasn't going to try the more difficult quests if I have to go through all that each time, rather staying in the game world and picking another quest that way. I never played a Monster Hunter game before, I always thought they looked neat, but playing it myself left me uninspired.

      BoTW took Game of the Year award and its well deserved, but I'm also glad NieR: Automata got best musical score, because its very well deserved.

      Bestbuy and Amazon had some good deals on movies yesterday. Got 9 recent releases on blu ray for about $50. And I got a 4tb western digital external hard drive from bestbuy for $79.

      IFC had a Three Stooges marathon on Thanksgiving. After we ate, we watched that the rest of the day. I haven't laughed that hard for that long in a long time. Good stuff.

      My PC had an update and restart only option last night. I had no idea there was another 'creators update' for windows 10. It was the 'fall creators update'. Damn thing took over an hour to install and reset numerous times. And apparently I have a 'windows feature update' that I still have to do. I guess I should check my nvidia drivers and update them today too. I've been having some windows 10 crashes lately so hopefully this update will fix that.
