    I'm not sure how that comment translates into a WW launch for the PS4 anyway?
    Because presumably - like all the last Assassins' Creed games - they'd release it on all continents pretty much simultaneously give or take the 3 day lag (Tues / Friday) meaning if it were to launch on PS4 then the console would have to be out? I don't know it's all speculation i guess until E3 and even after that we might not know.

    Presumably the hardest component to source will be the GDDR5 RAM in the amounts they will need. Plus as they're only fabbed at 512MB chips currently then the PS4 will need 16 of the bastards soldered on to the board. That's going to be some nifty engineering to get that tightly packaged up i think.

    It may well be out by then but who knows where. The quote could be accurate but doesn't actually tell you anything in the context.

    You're kind've saying multiple things.

    I'm just saying that it can release on the PS4 along with every other platform at once, but that doesn't mean the PS4 has to have been released in all territories.

    Yeah, I'm not jumping in straight away this time. It would have to have some shit hot game from the first parties for me to do so.

    I've fucked off back to PC now anyway. Really not giving a toss about any of these new walled garden media boxes after years of early adoption.

    As long as I dont have to do something insane like sign up to talktalk broadband again to get one, I would even go up to a toblerone.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Sony did push for a a worldwide release before Christmas. It's such an important time for sales. Could give Sony a decent advantage to get in there first.

    I don't know how much a Christmastime push will matter if they only have a limited number of consoles to sell. PS4s don't grow on trees!

    If they are going balls out to please consumers, the staggered release was an enormous complaint against the PS3 and was a total and utter joke for the PSP, so they may try.

    The vita did have a staggered release but it was only a couple of month.

    To be fair, I would be surprised if they had the capacity to release in europe before xmas. They would have to have started making them last week.

    If they're too slow to release in Europe it'll give Nintendo a massive head start with 2 holidays to themselves. 2014 will then be the year of the Wii U!

    I thought 2014 was the year of the PS3 (again)?

    But if this has been in planning since 2008 then you'd think they would plan this kind of thing. Especially as it seems they're desperate not to repeat past mistakes.

    According to some guy, the 720 reveal has been pushed back a month!

    From GAF:

    Paul Thurrott (of Windows Supersite and Windows Weekly) just tweeted the Durango announcement has been pushed back a month.

    So disappointed about a delay for an unannounced product that was rumoured to be unveiled a month earlier.

    Other than wanting to know about it, can't say MS are doing anything wrong. No need to say anything for a month or two yet. Devs they want to know, do. Show the goods when ready. Hype train to launch. Not like PS4 will suck up games that will be tough to port being a PC box.

    Recently, DICE didn't comment on a PS4 version of BF4, which could be a sign that nobody will talk until MS announce the new Xbox.

    Microsoft could be at a huge advantage here if Sony don't launch in Europe this year and they do.

    Barring used locks and crappy specs of course.

    MS need to be courting more indies, because at the minute they'll have nothing. And if that article I read yesterday (with indie devs discussing how good they have it with Nintendo and Sony) is anything to go by, they have a LOT of work to do. Nobody had a good word about the XBLA process, or the support MS provides.

    EDIT: Found it

    @sanctusmortis you'd think the boost that Nintendo's bad firm with publishers gave Playstation would linger in their memory..!

    If that announcement tweet is correct the timing does seem to suggest that MS might be running scared, trying to somehow cram in some more special sauce. Big if though. I will say this - if Microsoft come out with kinect this kinect that they are fucked.

    I thought I'd seen Activision's face tech somewhere else:

    Activision tech demo:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Hq1Nq2Zvv0Y

    Nvidia Faceworks demo:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5d1ZOYU4gpo&feature=youtu.be&t=10m49s

    IS faceworks being used in this tech then

    So we've now advanced to a point where humans in games look like Realdoll's.

    Ah, seems it's the same source material but a different rendering technique.

    That's great and all. But in-game it ain't gonna look like that now is it.

    This jockeying for spec position between Sony and MS might push the specs up higher than expected...!
