@Gnort Yep. With only 2 USB
ports available on PS4 (and one used by headset dongle), it
is quite impractical. I use 2nd USB port for flash drive, to
copy screenshots and video captures off the PS4.
USB hub could help, but I'd rather have wireless controllers with better battery life than DS4.

Even if game is competitive multiplayer (where one would like to start as early as possible, familiarize with maps, unlock some extra weapons), I'm still waiting for reviews. A few days will not kill my performance. And it's not like there is nothing else to play but that one new game...|

|bigmalky 39 minutes ago||@Old_Books Yeah... I am Setsuna is a great game and turn-based rpg's are still genuinely fun to play. In fact they're vastly more fun than the terrible system that FFXIII had.|
|bigmalky 40 minutes ago||
I actually liked the demo once I got used to the pacing and
art style. Probably due to the turn based combat system, I'm
a sucker for it.
If I can scrape together £40, I'll probably pick it up before FFXV comes out... Checking the user reviews first for that though. Getting stung with the awful FFXIII was the last time I pre-order a Final Fantasy game.

|krayzkrok 44 minutes ago||It's all a load of tosh from Bethesda. Bottom line, they will do whatever it takes to make money, and they've figured out the most profitable way of doing it. The rest is just spin and BS about looking after their customers.|

@man.the.king Hi, Did
you pre-order the digital or physical copy? What
I preordered on Xbox one and SOT instantly started downloading after payment didn't even have a download code or link to follow it just popped into my library and downloaded itself. If you are on Xbox check your "ready to download" list. Or maybe your hard drive is full, I use a 2TB external which allows for a lot of games.
Shame FBH has been delayed but there is plenty to play anyway, Q1 next is actually a better release date for me.

Not sure the chasnces of a price drop for either are great. One still sells (so no rush there), one has been discontinued (pretty much) (so no rush there) and the Pound flatlining will work against us.

@jerjef You must be joking
about DS3 quality. I still have a couple of launch day PS3
controllers and you can see straight through them. They felt
extremely cheap in your hands.
I personally really like the DS4. Probably the best controller I've used and I've used a lot.

Bethesda owe editorial nothing, and consumers should be
responsible for their own behaviour and purchasing habits.
The simple fact is that the impact and influence of standard written reviews is waning, and has been for a some time. The attitude of the article and the anti consumer stance reminds me of how GAME threatened first party publishers when they wanted to go day and date with digital copies.
This smacks of an outdated system getting jumpy about a major contributer to their bottom line cutting them out for the loop.

@RobertPaulson I don't
think anyone is advocating a free-for-all scenario.
The very nature of the product means you need to have it correctly setup to get the optimal performance(don't adjust the goggles correctly and the image is blurry, proper setup of the camera for tracking etc..), so you'd definitely want some help.
One of the issues with VR is that many do not know how they will react to the experience, and it has been documented that some people do react badly (motion sickness, nausea, head/neck strain...). If they need to pay just to find out if they are susceptible to these reactions it becomes a deterrent, on top of the already expensive price.
_Here is how one of the chains in the US(Best Buy) is handling the VR demo:
_They hold them only on the weekends(fri,sat and sun) and for limited hours (about 3 hours each day).
_Sony employees are running the demo. They tell the customer how many people are in line to try it.
_The customer gets to try one demo (usually from the VR demo disc) all of which have a pre-determined run time. If they want to try another demo they have to get back in line.
GAME could employ a similar strategy:
They already have people make appointments, if they also limit the hours/days of their demo sessions, this would limit the amount of use/wear and tear the unit receives and the amount of walk-ins/randoms wanting to try the unit with no-intention of buying (as walk-ins would have to wait for those that made appointments).
It also means less time required to have an employee dedicated to manning the station.

Unfortunately, the damage was already done. Slapping a F2P sticker onto it didn't do anything at all to lure me in, because F2P games have a notoriously bad rep, lathered in hidden costs and layers of MTs.
This may not have had that but it didn't matter, their rep was already rock bottom.
Also, I find it hard to believe they flipped to F2P out of the kindness of their hearts. If the game had seen healthy sales and player numbers, we would have seen more DLC and MTs layered on top and the strategy at launch would have just continued.
If they'd put this out as a monster vs players version of L4D, clean, I guarantee we'd have a different situation now, because look at how successful L4D and L4D2 have been (and still continue to be). There's a reason this tanked.
|jamie_fear 2 hours ago||@Fourfoldroot I won't disagree but there are other factors that provide a competitive advantage in multiplayer too...a low latency display, surround sound, fast internet connection. The controller just gives players more options, personally I think that's a good thing.|

|hazzatori 2 hours ago||@Tet5ujin I was 10, It was bought for me through some compensation id received when I was much younger my parents applied to the courts to get it, It originally was a 386sx, when i had an opportunity to upgrade it was upgraded to a 486dx and 4mb of RAM to 8mb, I depended on the local computer store to advise me, I was referring to the DOS version of DOOM not the N64 Version i should've been clearer, and yes I didnt get a sound card until later, I never needed one really as the system speaker was fine at least I thought. I couldnt afford many games at that time as I was a child and yes my HDD was 250mb, it was also removable which I never saw since, it was bought from Dixons in 1990, so by time doom came around I was advised to upgrade. it was my first PC, and I remember it very clear as it was the same year I played comanche and cannon fodder.|

The media's coverage and initial reviews of atrocious games like No Mans Sky fool gamers into wasting their money, while games like Deus Ex MD get buried and sell nothing despite its excellence. It doesn't effect long time gamers like me though, i knew NMS was gonna suck and i knew Deus Ex was gonna be rad. Its studio pedigree...just like a film directors, i already know who to trust. And it ain't the media.|
|katsabas 2 hours ago||
that's the thing. I am not disagreeing about the DLC scheme.
But people forget that they recognized they messed up and
they tried to fix it in the best way possible. Free to play,
free beta, everything unlocked for founders as soon as it
hits the store. Massively overhauled and faster gameplay.
How many developers would have such a degree of trust in
their product ??? Christ, Activision is one of the colossi
of the industry and it decided to pair IW with MWR in order
to sell it !
If people STILL didn't play St 2, no wonder they are not suprised this happened. It doesn't take clairvoyance or acting like a jerk and saying 'they deserve it/ they had it coming / inevitable'. You didn't support the game so you are in no position to make such statements cause you have no idea when it comes to the minutiae. End of story.
And by they, I mean TRS. 2K is responsable for this, I reckon.
