  • PlayStation Plus gets Velocity 2X, Sportsfriends and TxK in September

  • Big-Boss 27/08/2014

    Pretty naff list. Velocity 2X is the only one that catches my eye. PSASBR is decent but isn't that pretty old now with a dead online community? Giving it away with Plus might improve activity but I'm not holding my breath.

    It's also rather silly that people who aren't impressed with this list are getting negged by the fanboys. When people are paying for a service they feel isn't delivering they're entitled to be unhappy about it. PS Plus isn't free and I have to agree that's it's been rather average the past few months. The quality of the titles is nothing like we were getting this time last year for the PS3/Vita.

  • inFamous: First Light review

  • Big-Boss 26/08/2014

    12 for four hours represents good value though, especially when you consider MGS: Ground Zeroes - a cross-gen title - went for double that at launch and could be completed in 30 minutes. Reply +10

    Hmm think I'll pick up the disc release as it's going for 15 most places. Can sell it on afterwards as I doubt I'll be playing through it more than once so will be able to make most of my money back that way. I think Sucker Punch should make a new franchise now as they've made enough inFamous games IMO. They've taken it about as far as they can and First Light is a clear indication that they've run out of ideas. Reply +15
  • How to cheaply upgrade your PS4 to 2TB

  • Big-Boss 25/08/2014

    I purchased this exact same drive a few days ago. What a coincidence! Works perfectly in my PS4 and thoroughly recommended for anyone looking to future proof their console. I do wish Sony had made the console compatible with Sata 3 though as I'd have loved to put an SSD in it for their lightning fast access times. I know we can still use SSDs in the PS4 but there isn't any real noticeable gain in load times because of the PS4's Sata 2 limitation. It's ages away but I do hope that the PS5/Xbox Whatever launch with SSD drives as standard. Prices for those drives are coming down on a daily basis so it isn't an unrealistic expectation. Reply 0
  • FIFA 15 on PS3 and Xbox 360 doesn't have Pro Clubs mode

  • Big-Boss 22/08/2014

    What next, no Ultimate Team for last-gen players in Fifa 16? EA's disgusting attitude towards it's most loyal customers shows no bounds. As someone else has already mentioned, I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if we start seeing the stupid "legacy edition" banner appear on the game box from next year. Reply +4

  • 1TB Xbox One with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare exclusive to GAME in UK

  • Big-Boss 18/08/2014

    Credit to MS for at least making their limited edition consoles widely available, unlike Sony who seem to limit them to Japan - their smallest market :rolleyes:

    Having said that I do feel limited edition consoles would look nicer using a minimalist design. Perhaps a logo on the console or controller, maybe a bit of artwork or something. MS just seems a little aggressive when designing their limited edition consoles and the designs just look incredibly messy and noisy. There's just too much crap plastered on.

    For example I think this console would have looked a lot nicer if it just had the logo on the right of the console, the bronze disc tray and the words "Sentinel Task Force." The controller should have just had, again, the logo and bronze d-pad and none of the other random markings.

    Finally, I really don't know why MS are limiting the 1TB console to this bundle. It should be widely available and if anything should be the default size for the hard drive considering how space hungry the new consoles are. If they don't want to offer them as standard then they should follow Sony's lead and let the user upgrade the internal hard drive to whatever size they want.

  • Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Season Pass detailed

  • Big-Boss 18/08/2014

    I admit I have paid for a season pass before knowing what the content was and that was with Gears of War 3. Being a huge fan of both the single and multi-player I felt I'd receive good value for money at having spent 15 or so in advance. How wrong I was. The single player add-on Epic released was hugely disappointing whilst the multi-player maps were a mixed bag. I have since approached season passes cautiously. Never pay for something before you know what you are getting would be my advice.

    I loved The Last of Us for both single player and multi-player as well, but waited until "Left Behind" was released before purchasing the season pass. Waiting also paid off for me as I managed to buy a code in-store from a shop that was closing down and selling them for 8.

    So season passes have the potential to offer good value for money but I see no sense in paying full price up-front for DLC you have no idea will be good or not. Best to wait and wait for a price reduction or get lucky and bag a deal in-store somewhere.

  • Big-Boss 15/08/2014

    So the only time the Xbone finished top in the US was December last year and that's only because the PS4 was nowhere to be found at retail and going for nearly $700 on eBay. I'm guessing the Xbone's lifetime sales are sitting at somewhere between 5-6 million. The gap is widening and that's despite MS removing Kinect to price match. They really need to bite the bullet and undercut the PS4 by at least 50. It's weaker hardware and the price should reflect that. Only then will it start to gain some momentum. Reply +26
  • It's time for your latest update on The Last Guardian - again

  • Big-Boss 13/08/2014

    If this ever comes out and still manages to be brilliant despite the protracted development I'll eat my own head. There's just no way it can live up to the expectations people have of it now......right?

    I think it'll be an achievement if we ever see new footage of it again, let alone a release date! But I will choose to blindly believe it will be released one day and it will be outstanding, and that's only because Ueda has given us two masterpieces in Ico and SoTC. Believe people.

  • Microsoft confirms Rise of the Tomb Raider Xbox exclusivity deal "has a duration"

  • Big-Boss 13/08/2014

    @frazzl

    Well I disagree about what you say about Silent Hills, simply because there is absolutely zero evidence to back up your claim, whilst there is plenty of evidence to back up Tomb Raider being timed-exclusive to the Xbox brand.

    Regarding looking at posting history well I honestly couldn't care less. If people want to blindly defend a corporation with brand loyalty that's their prerogative. I don't see how it'll make them successful in life but they clearly care about it a great deal. The same goes for people like yourself who like arguing with them. Surely your time is better spent, like you know, playing games or enjoying life?

    I don't know why you'd believe one anonymous forumite over another to be honest. That M2 fella you mention; if Sony really were hyping up Silent Hills as an exclusive it'd be all over the net just like the Tomb Raider deal was. But it isn't. I've just flicked through a few other gaming websites and done a search on Google and can't find any information that either confirms or denies Silent Hills as a PS exclusive. So why believe M2? Will it be a future exclusive? Who knows. I just find it utterly bizarre that you're engaging in such a long, heated and ultimately pointless argument over a hypothetical situation.

    @frazzl

    I don't understand why you're getting so pent up about people not complaining about Silent Hills. Neither Sony or Konami have been dick-waving about any sort of exclusivity. They didn't announce the game on stage as an exclusive or timed-exclusive. MS and SE did and HAVE been dick-waving about Tomb Raider being an exclusive to the Xbox. Sure, if Sony/Konami announce Silent Hills as a PlayStation exclusive you'll have a point if the same people calling out MS/SE for Tomb Raider don't speak up. But if Silent Hills is multi-platform you'll end up looking incredibly stupid. So why not wait for the details first eh? Because right now you sound absolutely mental for ranting about a game you and everyone else know nothing about.

    Happy days, I'll buy the definitive edition pre-owned when it releases on PS4. Pre-owned because I supported SE with not one, but two purchases of the original after buying it on both the PS3 and 360 because I enjoyed it so much. But they decided to fuck me and many others over for the sequel so it looks like SE won't see my money either way. Funny how things work out :rolleyes: Reply +15
  • Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 release date announced, demo due in September

  • Big-Boss 13/08/2014

    @Monsieur_Blade

    The thing is though if Konami really need extra time to get the game finished then why are they releasing a demo so soon in September? Won't that demo be full of problems that are supposed to be addressed with the extra development time? Personally I don't think there are any problems other than Konami struggling with cross-gen development. This is the first time I can think of where they have ever released their game in November. The PS4/Xbone versions must be taking longer to complete due to the PES team being relatively small so they've decided to delay the last-gen versions as well. I believe that will be to their detriment.

  • Big-Boss 13/08/2014

    @Monsieur_Blade

    I strongly doubt launching later will benefit them. Launching earlier has never helped them so how could launching later ever make any difference? Look at the charts; Fifa consistently remains in the top 10 all the way up until the new version comes out. PES is lucky to manage even a couple of weeks in the top 10. It's dropped off massively in terms of sales, especially in Europe. Konami themselves said that South America is now their biggest market for the game. November is peak time for Christmas shopping. How many parents will pick PES over Fifa? None. Granted there will be a handful that will trade in Fifa for PES but there will be a higher volume of customers doing the opposite.

    Not only that, but judging by the last few Christmas' Fifa usually gets discounted in November at places like GAME to push sales even further. PES will launch at near full price. Again, customers are more likely to pick a reduced Fifa over a full priced PES. Konami may well have more time to iron out problems by releasing later, but it will hurt them massively in terms of sales.

    If EA got the license to the CL again they'd rape their customers and turn it into a seperate annual release. Just like they did the last time they had the license. I'd rather Konami continued to get exclusive rights to it, even if I do miss it when playing Fifa's career mode.

    Middle of November for all versions? Three months after the new football season starts and nearly two months after Fifa? Konami need to sort out their release schedual. PES is already massively lagging behind Fifa in sales, so giving it's rival such a massive leg-up only harms them further. No idea what they were thinking releasing in November. Reply +9
  • Assassin's Creed Unity is more than meets the Eagle's eye

  • Big-Boss 13/08/2014

    I loved Ezio's trilogy but gave up half way through AC3 out of boredom. Everyone keeps telling me that AssFlag is much better but I'm stubborn and hate playing games in the wrong order. Not only that but I'm suffering from some serious AC fatigue with every game having more or less the same mechanics. For those reasons I'll most likely be picking up Shadow of Mordor this year. It takes a lot of inspiration from the AC games but I love how it's added The Lord of the Rings lore to it, a universe I am a big fan of. Plus it's doing some pretty cool things in terms of gameplay and that's what interests me most. Anyway I'm sure AC: Unity will be good, but it's just too much too soon for me. Reply 0
  • Battlefield Hardline single-player debuts, new multiplayer modes revealed

  • Big-Boss 13/08/2014

    Why not just call this "Hardline" and make it it's own franchise using the Battlefield engine? EA have the money to throw at marketing so it'd still sell well. This has nothing to do with Battlefield. Now that I think of it it doesn't have much to do with cops and robbers either. Payday managed to nail that experience. This just looks like another military shooter riding off a big brand name. Reply +1

    Guess I'll have to make do with Uncharted 4 then. MS really need to learn to fight their battles with fresh ideas and internal investment rather than throwing money and whoring publishers out. Dead Rising 3, Ryse and Titanfall didn't help the Xbone gain any significant ground on the PS4. Neither will Tomb Raider. But if this is the path that MS want to continue taking then I'm happy to continue avoiding them. Reply +10

  • PlayStation 4 gets 3D Blu-Ray support next week

  • Big-Boss 29/07/2014

    I just wish we had the basics really, such as friend notifications and the ability to manage our downloads. You know, features both the 360 and PS3 had at launch. And I don't know about you guys but I quite liked being nosy and being able to tell how long it's been since my friends were last online. I can't believe that neither the PS4 or Vita (which has been out for over two years!) let us see that information.

    It's been eight months since the release of the console, it should at the very minimum have the basics nailed down. The Xbone is now edging very close to matching the functionality that the 360 had. The PS4 is still miles off. Since the last major update around three months ago all we've had is stability patches and this 3D Blu-Ray patch. That is piss poor. Given Sony's current snail pace I predict it'll be at least two years before they manage to implement such features.

    The fact that Sony fanboys are ok with such ignorant behaviour speaks volumes. I mean who the hell actually suggested better audio quality in 1.5x mode? Or to switch the bloody notifications to the left side of the screen? Do Sony update their console based on least requested features or something? Because that's what it looks like.

  • Big-Boss 16/07/2014

    Managed to order this for 24.96 so decided to go for it as my PS3 version sold for just 5 less on eBay. I do hope we get some clarification on the frame rate though. Tweets from various ND staff have been raving about 60fps, and I'm pretty sure Corinne Yu said the game was running higher than 60 so that it could be locked to that figure. Hope it's a locked 60fps and not an inconsistent unlocked. The higher frame rate and low price in my case are the only reasons I'm picking this again up so it'll be quite disappointing if they haven't lived up to their promise. Reply +2
  • The best games of 2014 are actually from 2013 - and that's okay

  • Big-Boss 12/07/2014

    @cloudskipa

    Your fanboyism knows no bounds. You describe Forza Horizon 2 (a title being released on both Xbone and 360) as being "ground-breaking" before dismissing DriveClub as merely "decent," even though recent previews for both games have been highly positive. You then go and describe playing through GTAV and TLoU again as "grim" before expressing delight at the prospect of playing through four Halo games again. If Martin's opinion is total bollocks then yours is a special kind of stupid.

    Moving onto the subject at hand well it's all a matter of opinion. Some can see the value in remasters and some can't. TLoU on PS3 still sells for around 20-25 new and that's without the 16 Season Pass. If Sony were to release a hypothetical "complete edition" with all the DLC on PS3 for 30 I would imagine there would be a lot of positivity surrounding it. This new PS4 version is that very same "complete edition" plus it comes with 1080p resolution, better character models and 60fps. And it's 29.97. So what's the problem? The PS4 version is the definitive experience and if anything it represents far better value when you consider the content you are getting as well as all the improvements.

    The same can be said of the Master Chief collection, which IMO represents even better value with four games, all looking and running better than they ever have as well as over one hundred multiplayer maps. That's staggering, and anyone that says it's a rip-off needs their head checking. The Halo games on 360 (minus Halo 2) all sell for around 10 each for a new copy and don't come with any extra map packs. So is paying 10 per Halo on Xbone, which has all the map packs thrown in, has better graphics and higher resolution, as well as 60fps really bad value? No chance.

    If people dislike remasters that's fine, no one is forcing you to buy them. But there are far more people out there that enjoy replaying their favourite games at a higher quality and when the value is as good as it is they are hardly wasting their money. I'm a huge Metal Gear Solid fan and after playing the HD collection I can never ever go back to my old PS2 versions. The HD resolution, full screen cut-scenes, 60fps as well as cloud saves, trophies and DTS surround sound make these versions the definitive editions for me. Remasters have a place and they are offered as a choice. If people don't want to buy them that's fine. After all it's not like the original versions will suddenly stop working once newer editions are released right?

  • Why PS4 exclusive The Order: 1886 was delayed to early 2015

  • Big-Boss 27/05/2014

    Does Sony have anything decent coming out this year? Neg me all you want but they're going to get battered at E3 by MS. Yeah sure, they'll announce some new stuff but I strongly doubt any of it will be coming out by Christmas this year. If all they're going to give us is ports of PC games and last-gen "remasters" then I'm seriously going to consider selling my PS4 and repurchase it in a couple of years time when there's actually something decent to play.

    MS have gotten their biggest title announcement (Halo 5) out of the way before E3 has even started and they'll be going for Sony's throat next month. Sony are dropping the ball big time with these ridiculous delays for both their games and firmware updates and MS are closing in fast. They've been resting on their laurels. I can't believe people are saying they're happy with this delay. Yes delays can mean that a game can be better but it's ridiculous when you consider that it's now two (DriveClub being the other) of Sony's main exclusives that have missed release dates. They'll need to have a stonkingly good E3 if they want to keep me on board because I'm really not happy with this constant dilly-dallying from them.

    The only reason the 360 was so finacially successful for MS was because people bought it multiple times since they were built so poorly and the motherboard would always crap out after 18 months or so.

  • PS4 and Xbox One double sales of predecessors during first six months in US

  • Big-Boss 16/05/2014

    115k sales is pretty dire so you can see why MS are dropping Kinect to lower the overall price. It looks like even the usually patriotic Americans aren't warming to the console and that'll surely concern MS a great deal. Their sales for May will be even lower now that people will be waiting for the Kinect-less console to be released. The console will see a boost in June no doubt but will likely drop again in the following months.

    The main reason for that is because they can't just simply match Sony for price whilst offering weaker hardware - they need to undercut them which is something I've mentioned before. The Titanfall bundle dropped to 315 recently in the UK, which includes a game and Kinect, and even that failed to seriously ignite sales. They can't increase sales by charging more and giving less which is why the new 349 price-point won't make any noticeable difference.

  • Sony expects a significant loss next year too

  • Big-Boss 14/05/2014

    @Milky1875

    The "Popular now" section is determined by user traffic, not by editorial bias as you incorrectly claim. The fact that the free game with Mario Kart 8 wasn't popular has more to do with the general apathy surrounding the Wii U more than anything else. And we all know that people love a Nintendo doom and gloom article which is why it more than likely received more hits than others.

    Let's not try to hide anything here - Sony are in trouble. They've seemingly done all they can to plug the wounds but they just keep on bleeding cash. They've already predicted a billion dollar loss for next year too which is just insane. Ten years ago I doubt a single person could have predicted them being in this position. They just seemed to let all their competitors overtake them in practically every field they once dominated, whilst crazy Ken did an amazing job of throwing away all the money made from the PS2 era on the Cell processor. There's only so many buildings, shares and subsidiaries they can sell off to raise cash. There's clearly deeper underlying issues that aren't being addressed. Reply +6
  • Better without Kinect

  • Big-Boss 14/05/2014

    Imagine seeing the slogan "Better without Kinect" on game boxes - it would be utterly hilarious! The 10% extra power they supposedly gain from turning off Kinect is being overstated as well. It'll offer a small boost sure but nothing that brings it in line with the PS4. The gap will remain and widen as time goes on. MS now need to ditch Kinect completely from their future consoles and if they insist on keeping it around, need to make it completely optional from day one. The market spoke years ago when they rejected the original Kinect after realising it was a piece of shit not fit for purpose. The only reason they insisted on including it in the box was because they had already lost a tonne of money with all the DRM policy reversals they had spent five years creating. They couldn't afford to lose more by removing more. They've bit the bullet now and finally rectified the last remaining issue with the console but the real hard work starts now.

    Up until now all MS have done is try to match Sony. They now need to take steps to overtake and it won't be easy as the PS4 has already sold nearly double in just six months. They need to bring the games and bring A LOT. Customers are wary of them now. Buying third-party exclusivity for games won't work anymore either as Titanfall failed to help the Xbone shift more than the PS4. They need to continue copying Sony and open more first party studios to deliver a consistent stream of exclusive games that offer both quality and diversity. They need to give their studios more freedom too. It was rather disheartening to read that their most recent studio in Black Tusk was ordered to stop work on what they were creating in order to make yet another Gears of War title. They also need to take the Kinect shackles off Rare and let them make a core game.

    Removing Kinect is only the beginning for MS and they still have a long way to go yet. I want them to succeed though because competition is only good for us, as we are clearly seeing. Plus Sony have shown signs recently that their old arrogant ways may be returning after the recent DriveClub and Watch Dogs blunders. This should be a timely reminder to them that the war lasts another six years yet. They need to bring the games at E3 just as badly as MS do or the tide of positivity and good will they built up last year will be lost quickly.
