  • In Theory: Could Sony release PlayStation 5 in 2018?

  • Big-Boss 13/05/2017

    I reckon Xmas 2019 is the earliest we'll see the PS5. Sony have never launched early even when they were behind for a while with the PS3, so I certainly don't see them launching early when they're butchering MS.

    Whenever they do launch the PS5 though I do hope they make it fully backwards compatible with at least PS4 games. They were the ones that originally popularised the functionality with the PS2 and it's quite disappointing that the PS4 is not natively backwards compatible with any system before it.

    Anyway, the PS4 is hitting it's peak years with it already getting some blockbuster releases this year and some very healthy releases to follow in the coming months and years. They don't need to release a new console when they have so many top quality games still to come. And a new console is nothing if it has no games to play; no matter how powerful it is.

  • EA reckons 40% of console game sales will be downloads by the end of 2017

  • Big-Boss 10/05/2017

    I've been hearing similar comments since 2010. Digital isn't going to match physical sales on consoles for a while yet. Not when they cost nearly 30% more at launch, take a year to download and have zero resale value.

    Then there's the issue of HDD space. It's far easier to delete an installed game and reinstall it via disc at a later date than to redownload all 50gb again. Then finally of course there's the not so small issue of ownership. I can own a disc for life and it will work for life. A bunch of code on an HDD will not. For these reasons I'll remain a buyer of discs for as long as the option is given to me.

  • Capcom tweaks Street Fighter 5 Thailand stage due to "unintentional religious references"

  • Big-Boss 27/04/2017

    I love how everyone is annoyed it's been changed because of Islam. Does it really matter what religion it is? I'm an atheist but it seems like a hell of a lot of similar minded people like putting the boot in for people that believe in something different, especially when Muslims are involved. It wasn't like this ten or fifteen years ago, but now just because a minority have done some despicable things it's trendy to hate on an entire religion.

    I wouldn't want to meet a lot of the people commenting in here in person with this kind of shitty attitude towards different beliefs. A game company changed a small detail in a game to avoid offending anyone. It doesn't hurt anyone, it doesn't offend anyone anymore and it really isn't a big fucking deal. I just sent this article to a Muslim mate and he laughed saying he couldn't care less. But naturally, it's Islam, so let's jump on the bandwagon and show how bigoted we really are eh?

  • PlayStation Plus free games for May detailed

  • Big-Boss 26/04/2017

    I'm actually glad we're getting Alienation instead of Abzu. It's an actual game which can be replayed with mates again and again as opposed to Abzu which is an "experience it once and forget about it"' kind of game. Reply +2
  • Metal Gear Solid 2 was the game that changed everything for PS2

  • Big-Boss 23/04/2017

    Whilst not the best MGS game (MGS3 will forever have that crown), I've not finished another game as much as MGS2. The gameplay was leagues ahead of most games of its time and holds up even today. The sheer amount of mischief you could get upto with the guards was pure joy.

    If they spot footprints or blood? They'll follow them until they find you. They find a dead body? They'll call it in and a replacement guard will be called to the area as well as an attack squad to search the area making tensions rise even higher. Been spotted? Shoot their radio and cut off communications. Then there's hiding bodies in lockers, throwing them off platforms into the sea or torturing them by holding them up and shooting their limbs one by one until they finally perish. Then there's the dog tag collecting which was a game in itself.

    The story may have been all sorts of nonsense but for me, it's still one of my favourite games ever. I still play it at least once a year and the gameplay never gets old. I really wish they'd port the MGS HD collection to PS4 because these games are literally the only reason I've still got my PS3 lying around. Do it Konami - it's free money for you.

  • Is Persona 5 on PS4 actually a 1080p remaster?

  • Big-Boss 22/04/2017

    Strange, I don't remember seeing such an article for Zelda: BotW, Destiny, MGSV, Far Cry 4, AC: Black Flag, RoTTR, CoD Ghosts or the countless other cross-gen releases. They were all the same as this release where the current-gen version just had a higher resolution and more stable frame rate. Why this game deserves a whole in depth article discussing triangles and what not is beyond me. Anyway, this is probably the last AAA release on a last-gen machine and the fact that the PS3 is even getting this game should be applauded IMO. Reply -6
  • Why are games so fascinated with cannibalism?

  • Big-Boss 22/04/2017

  • LG OLED B6 4K TV review

  • Big-Boss 17/04/2017

    When I opened this article I was expecting a price of around 1,000 or below. Even that, for me, is quite expensive for a TV but to see a price of 1,699 be described as "affordable" is laughable. If I was on footballer money sure, I'd have one in every room in my house, but that is silly money for a telly EG themselves admit will be obsolete within a couple of years.

    Personally I don't feel there is anywhere near enough 4k content to justify blowing that much money on one of these sets. Gaming seems to be leading the way in 4k content but even then it's baby steps right now. I'll get one in around three years time by which time a shiny new PS5 and Xbox Two or whatever are released. I should be able to pick up a top end set for around 500 by then easily :D

  • Persona 5 ships over 1.5m copies worldwide

  • Big-Boss 07/04/2017

    I'm currently playing through Horizon and Yakuza, fairly giving each 2-3 hours of play time a day before switching to the other and doing the same on the following day. I also have Gravity Rush 2, Nier: Automata and despite not being a fan of the Souls style games decided to order Nioh and give it a try in case it clicks with me. Now Persona 5 has come along and it seems to be the highest rated of the bunch.

    My wife is already giving me lectures about buying way more than I have time to play and I've a first child due in June, but if anything I'm doing the right thing and getting as much gaming done as I possibly can before it all goes downhill, right guys?

    Throughly deserved. I finished UC4 again back in January and it's even better the second time. A stunning game and my only complaint was that we didn't get to see Chloe or Cutter. Hopefully the latter makes an appearance in The Lost Legacy. Congrats to ND and here's hoping TLoU Part 2 is yet another masterpiece. Reply +5
  • Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition review

  • Big-Boss 07/04/2017

    Hmmm a little odd that EG have chosen to review a remaster. This is a first isn't it? Normally you guys just repost the original review since apart from resolution, graphics and possibly frame rate nothing really changes. Has there been a shift in policy at EG recently regarding reviews of remasters?

    That said, I actually haven't played Bulletstorm before. Yes I know, it's shameful and made all the more worse considering I've had it as a PS Plus game for years now. If there are noticeable improvements, mainly if it's now a 60fps game, I'll definitely pick it up once it's dropped to a more reasonable price. But at around 35 most places it's just too much. That's the price I paid for the Uncharted Trilogy at launch so to charge that much for one remaster is more than a little greedy.

  • Inside the next Xbox: Project Scorpio tech revealed

  • Big-Boss 06/04/2017

    That all sounds very impressive but unless your console has games no one other than the hardcore will really care. I think MS are making a mistake by dumping the Scorpio into the same gen as the Xbone, which they should be distancing themselves from as far as possible.

    They should be marketing this as a next-gen machine with full backwards compatibility and show some exclusives (no, not Forza, Halo or Gears thanks) that truly take advantage of the raw power on offer. This kind of power is totally wasted as an Xbone upscaler.

  • Jak and Daxter games are coming to PS4

  • Big-Boss 04/04/2017

    Sony really aren't releasing anywhere near enough PS2 classics. They have a treasure trove to pick from and what we've got so far is a very limited selection of varying quality. I still can't believe we still don't have PS1 classics avaliable either. Granted, Sony are absolutely smashing it with new game releases but adding some classics wouldn't hurt. Reply +2
  • PS4 premium joypad face-off: Razer Raiju vs Nacon Revolution Pro

  • Big-Boss 02/04/2017

    @Fourfoldroot

    I own two v2 DS4 pads and sadly the battery life is exactly the same.
    Reply +2
  • Big-Boss 02/04/2017

    My main issues with the DS4 is the poor battery life, the slightly small stick size and the triggers being free rather than having plastic underneath them to protect them like other controllers do. The sticks can easily be fixed with large rubber grips to both protect and enlargen them but it'd be better if Sony fixed this issue themselves.

    There's no excuse for the poor battery life though which Sony should be ashamed of as the DS3 had fantastic battery life since day one. If they can fix these issues for the PS5 controllers then they'll easily be my favourite controller ever.

    That's.....an interesting lineup. Sony really do need to retire the service for at least the PS3 if not the Vita as well. Maybe then they can actually release some better titles every month on PS4. We're midway through the gen now so there's no excuse for some of the tat we get at times. Reply -4

  • Sources: This year's COD is called Call of Duty: WW2

  • Big-Boss 28/03/2017

    Regardless of your opinion on CoD, I'm not quite sure why some people are calling it desperation by going back to WW2. The franchise is on a three year dev cycle, therefore it was decided quite a while back and well before BF1 was announced that it would return to a WW setting this year. BF1 has nothing to do with their decision.

    I'll give Activision the benefit of the doubt personally, because all past WW CoD games, especially World at War were excellent. This could be the return to form the series needs because the only decent entry released this gen has been BO3.

  • Nioh now lets you pause the game

  • Big-Boss 25/03/2017

    @Flipper79

    I completely agree with you. It's one of the reasons I believe the Souls series is artificially hard rather than hard by design. If they added a checkpoint and pause system to those games they wouldn't be half as hard as they are now.

    On the other hand you could literally take away the pause and checkpoint feature from any modern game and it would instantly be made harder. That wouldn't be clever design though, it would be cheap and lazy tactics like you said.

  • Dark Souls 3 patch to improve framerate on PS4 Pro

  • Big-Boss 21/03/2017

    Whilst not a fan of the Dark Souls games, it is odd that FS are aiming for a variable frame-rate rather than a completely locked 30fps with even frame pacing. They could go down the No Man's Sky route and offer both locked and unlocked options. Choice is always the best way to go and I'm sure it wouldn't require any extra work on the developer's part.

    It wasn't, but I bought it from them therefore they should sort it out, especially after a failure that occurred so quickly. Don't tell me you'd contact the manufacturer if something you bought failed within five days. You'd take it back to the shop as well and you know it :P

  • Big-Boss 08/03/2017

    I got very lucky recently. I purchased a PS4 slim from Argos with an extra pad and Horizon: Zero Dawn for 199.99. But after just five days of use the disc drive failed. Considering my day one PS4 ran flawlessly this was both very surprising and very disappointing. I expect better from a Sony device.

    Anyway, upon returning it I was told they were out of stock of both 500gb and 1tb Slims and they could only give me a refund. After expressing my discontent and asking to speak to a manager, I was offered an upgrade to a PS4 Pro for just 50 extra. I just couldn't say no to that offer.

    So now, even though I don't have a 4k TV I'm very much looking forward to trying out the boost mode on some old favourites. Project Cars will definitely be revisited and I've yet to play Infamous: First Light so looking forward to trying that out at higher frame rates as well. The external hard drive support is also very welcome as my 2tb internal is almost full.

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is getting premium DLC

  • Big-Boss 09/03/2017

    They've done this because they know people will pay for it. Just look at all the other publishers. EA, Ubisoft, Warner Brothers - they're all at it. Why? Because imbeciles with more money than sense told them they were happy to bend over for them and pay for the privilege.

    Sadly, we who complain on message boards are a very, very small minority. They couldn't give a fuck what we think because they know they'll still make their money from the weak sheep. Activision are fucked going forward though so I can see why they're trying to make as much money as possible.

    This year's CoD dropped to less than half price within a couple of weeks and only a few days ago the Legacy Edition was selling for less than 28 from simplygames. That would never have happened during the height of their popularity in the PS360 days. The CoD games always held their price until the new one came out. Their cash cow is dying and Acti's desperation to charge for remastered DLC at 50% higher than the original cost is proof of it. It's only downhill from here folks.

    I can think of a good reason - "It's a new console, so we though we'd rip off customers as much as we could. Plus you Nintendo fans have no problem paying 40-50 for last gen ports like Zelda and MK8 so why should we lower our prices?" Case closed. Reply +1

  • Switch has redesigned portable gaming forever

  • Big-Boss 08/03/2017

    It's funny how when the PSP and especially the Vita did home console games on the go, many said it doesn't work because no one wanted to play big adventures on the go. Portable consoles were supposed to be about portable, bite sized experiences rather than premium games that people would rather play at home on the big screen.

    But now that the Switch is doing the exact same thing with a few extra bells and whistles attached it's a revolution all of a sudden? Please :rolleyes:

    Even though Nintendo keeps claiming the Switch is a home console first, all of their adverts are focusing on the portability aspect. It's a portable console plain and simple.

  • Is Zelda on Switch worth the upgrade from Wii U?

  • Big-Boss 04/03/2017

    I seem to recall everyone praising Nintendo for their commitment to 60fps over more shiny shiny. However, this game not only drops frames below it's 30fps cap but also isn't very pretty to look at. I'm not doubting it's overall quality, but visually it doesn't look too far away from a mid gen PS3/360 game. If it was in development hell for a decade like The Last Guardian I'd understand, but I expected better from Nintendo. Reply 0
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild review

  • Big-Boss 02/03/2017

    This game is getting stupidly good reviews! 98 Metacritic so far bloody hell! Such a shame though that I'll never get to play it unless it comes to other consoles. I just flat out refuse to pay the prices Nintendo are asking for for the Switch and no game is worth splashing 280 for, especially when that game is a port and the following eight months of the release schedual look so incredibly bleak. Repurchasing the Wii U just to play one game is also completely out of the question. Reply -2

    My first ever Nintendo console and still my favourite. I wish they still made powerhouses like it today. Everyone credits the Xbox for popularising FPS games on console but for me it was the N64. Goldeneye, Perfect Dark and Turok were mind blowing at the time, especially for my 10 year old self. Nintendo are a shadow of their former selves these days.

  • Jelly Deals: A PS4 Slim with Nioh or Horizon: Zero Dawn and an extra controller costs you 230 today

  • Big-Boss 01/03/2017

    The 199 Argos deal is ridiculous. I've actually gone and bought one myself! My launch model is still doing perfectly fine but you never know when that might change so after selling the extra controller and Horizon (which I already own) it'll bring the console down to around 130 which is a steal. My launch model can be sold for around the same price so essentially a straight swap, but for a much quieter model and new warranty. Win win! :D Reply 0
  • Shadow of Mordor sequel details leaked by shop

    The first game was mostly excellent bar the final boss and ending which both felt very rushed. If they can improve on that and polish a few mechanics this could be a gem.

    Disappointed about the season pass edition being announced so early but they seem to have become a WB Games trademark now sadly. I didn't buy it for either the original Middle Earth game or Batman: Arkham Knight though and neither felt like incomplete experiences. Hopefully this will be the same. Roll on August!

  • Dead Space is the sequel Resident Evil 4 deserved

  • Big-Boss 20/02/2017

    Outstanding game. I'm sure EG is ashamed of the 7/10 they awarded it back in the day. Played through this again last year with surround headphones and it's still shit your pants scary. Graphically it has also stood the test of time rather well, but I think that may be because it's so dark for most of the game and it relies on its excellent lighting to create much of the atmosphere and horror.

    For me, it's a better game than RE4 in almost every single way. The unofficial RE5 - only it is set in space with monsters far more terrifying than any form of zombie. I would love a remaster at 60fps but EA is, rather surprisingly, uninterested in remastering their games this gen. Bluepoint seems to be free atm so maybe they should give them a call :D

  • PlayStation 4 is finally getting external hard drive support

  • Big-Boss 03/02/2017

    About time Soony. This is the one feature other consoles have had for years that PS4 hasn't. My 2TB internal drive has around 500GB left which is enough for what, 5 games these days? At least now I can just plug in my old 1TB hard drive without worrying about deleting anything.

    As others have already mentioned though, it is very annoying that Sony only put an extra USB port at the back of the console on their Pro models. Most of us peasant PS4 owners now have to invest in one of those fugly USB adaptor things to accommodate extra accessories.

    Auto background synching of trophies might also be an idea they want to implement next time. I can't believe half way through the gen we still have to manually sync trophies every time we unlock them. Surely it can't be that hard eh?

  • Nioh review

  • Big-Boss 02/02/2017

    Yet another great exclusive to add to the PS4 library and we're only at the start of February! Meanwhile on Xbone there's a few more old 360 games you can play and some new controller colours... :rolleyes:

    @frazzl

    Frazzl the fanboy is devastated I see. You've already gone into all out defence mode and pretending outstanding titles like Uncharted 4 and Ratchet and Clank didn't release last year to protect your precious Xbone from looking even shitter than it already does. A ten year old PS3 game, The Last Guardian, managed to practically match the "blockbuster" Gears of War 4 on Metacritic by scoring just 2% less :lol:

    Out of the tonnes of quality PS4 exclusives releasing this year you're interested in almost none. Out of the, oh I don't know, five maybe? Exclusives releasing on the Xbone they're all "Day One can't wait another mother-fucking second purchases!!!!!!"

    And who can forget your forte of labelling all those who offer valid criticism of your beloved Xbone as Sony fanboys and failing to see the irony of your own obsessive love for MS. No one here gives a fuck how many consoles you own little Petey, you're still a brainless Xbot and you know it. You're a 40+ year old single adult spending half your free time playing games in a basement on a projector (your own words), whilst spending your remaining time fighting a non-existent war with fans of a console you don't like. Resolution and frame rate mattered to you when the 360 was ahead last gen, yet this gen when the tables have turned it's all about "the preferencccccce!" Those up-scaled 720p/900p games must look great on your projector I'm sure. :cool:

    I mean, I also own an Xbone S (currently on eBay) and used to own a Wii U. Does anyone on here give a shit? I haven't attacked fans of those consoles and have never felt that owning them gives me a right to like you do. I also don't feel the need to hand out my Gamertag on different systems to "prove" I've played a game on another system. It proves nothing, regardless of what you think. I have thousands of Gamerscore accrued during the 360 era and have no need to prove it to anyone, least of all to a child like yourself. Both the Xbone and Wii U are utterly awful consoles for me and millions of others and that is the reason why my Xbone is currently on eBay after barely three months of use and three games played. You think I'm a fanboy? Well good for you kiddo! See if I give a shit beyond this post. I won't indulge you like others have in the past. I generally avoid you like the plague, because...well...you're comparable to one.

    I have not and do not spend my time attacking fans of other consoles like you do to PlayStation fans in practically 90% of your posts, you utter bell-end. You take everything way too seriously considering we're discussing video games here. Owning multiple consoles doesn't exempt you from being a fanboy. No, frazzl it doesn't...no...just stop talking, seriously...I don't care how many consoles you own...shush, no one cares kiddo. No one. You see, it's what you say and how you behave towards others that determines if you're a fanboy. Your attitude towards fans of other consoles, especially PlayStation fans, is clear as day to every single user on EG. You have a vendetta against them as if they somehow threaten your breathing space and ability to enjoy your favoured toy. You get off on it, a bit like a glue-sniffer does.

    Finally - no, don't flatter yourself. You don't have a fan club following you around. Practically all your posts in your post history are negged to high hell because you are a thoroughly unpleasant excuse for a human being with a superiority complex. I almost feel sorry for you sometimes. You've got the hardest 12 months of your career coming up trying to paint the shit-heap 2017 Xbone lineup in a positive light. Best ask Philly for a pay rise eh? I'll pray for your sanity, a lunatic like you will need every ounce of help you can get now that your sidekick cloudskipa has gone AWOL :lol:

    Now, go ahead kiddo and cherry pick a couple of posts from my post history that suit your agenda, whilst conveniently ignoring the majority of my constructive ones. Oh look, you've done just that! Hahahahahahaha so bloody predictable! :lol:

    If I have a post or two mocking the Xbox (not its fans) you have thousands dating back to nearly a decade ago where you're furiously foaming at the mouth and attacking PlayStation fans with your favourite Phil Spencer t-shirt on. But I'm not sad like you, I've no need to sift through a decades worth of trash to show people what you are. Everyone here already knows that. Listen...shhhhhhhhh...you hear that? Someone somewhere said a slightly negative thing about Xbox - you'd better get on it frazzy boy! ;)

    The review mentions that these are launching at twice the price of the Gold headset. This isn't true. I purchased the Golds around the time they launched and paid 110 for them. It's only now around the Xmas period where Sony dropped the price to around the 50-60 mark as a promotion. They were never cheap.

    *Edit: Apologies, I just checked my Amazon account and I actually paid 80 for these at launch.

    Anyway, as good as the 3D audio must sound I can't justify purchasing them if only one game makes real use of them right now. Besides, I literary just completed UC4 last night for a second time with my Golds and they are still outstanding. Another huge plus for me is that they are fully compatible with my PS3 whilst the Platinum one isn't.

    I'm going to stick with my Golds for a while yet I reckon. Unless support for 3D audio really kicks off in the future I can't see myself upgrading.

    So two recommended PS4 exclusives, games that are being very well reviewed all round, in the same month at the start of the year. EG were absolutely right about the momentum being with Sony......oh......they were talking about MS? Really? Never mind :) Reply +12

    I'm now going to spend the rest of my day trying desperately hard to find something I don't want or need just to save 10. Damn you EG! Reply +29

    See, this is a nice idea but they're only doing it because the game flopped hard in sales. It's the same reason Activision offered a trial of Infinite Warfare and when was the last time they did that for a CoD game? With Ghosts, which also flopped. It would be nice if these companies offered trials of their games as standard rather than waiting for their games to fail first. Reply +11
