  • Xbox 360 set to overtake Wii in UK in matter of days

  • C0mmander 27/06/2013

    @arcam as of right now they are about 22.1M behind the Wii worldwide so they've still got a LONG way to go on that front. Reportedly they are also now .2M behind the PS3 which isn't MAJOR but kind of is in the sense it shows 360 sales slowed worldwide as the PS3 of course launched at a high price and a year later, so it could be read to be of grave significance to the strength of the markets Microsoft is not targeting.

    @madjim Well that's what's great about this its not even our next month games! These are just additional bonuses for June which I believe also got ICO and Shadow of the colussus HD and Demon's souls also (I dunno if this onr was last month now :/) Kingdoms of Amalur. So we get 6 new PS3 games for June on Plus with a Vita thst brings my count up to 8 games in all with my Vita included though I had Rayman Origins Vita from launch! Reply +2

    @MrDaWe Yes, it's true unless the game requires specific hardware like the camera. It will be great to play PS4 games on PS Vita.

    @Mr-Writer It indeed could to some extent. You could set up your PSP/VITA to turn on your console through remote play (through internet connection) and play compatible software/ enter the dashboard. I reckon it will be able to do this but latency will probably be higher if this method is used. Reply 0
  • C0mmander 29/05/2013

    @CatWeazle I can't remember if they said thi at their conference earlier the year (I believe they did) but eventually with Gaikai it should also end up gaining access to PS2 and 3 games on top of the PS4 remote play and the natively supported PS One, PSP, PS Mobile and PS Vita games. By the time this handheld meets its full potential there should be no lull in what you can play. As a Vita owner I'm very happy with this,although I do hope they show off some great Vita exclusives at E3 or thereafter to show off the great exclusive content it gets as well. Reply +3
  • C0mmander 29/05/2013

    @mintgreen I'm gonna take a stab at it and say 559.99 - 699. Basically I see PS4 being 359.99 or above. Obviously I'd love it to be around the 250 mark but its never gonna happen (Sony might make me look like a fool for believing this) so together I reckon the above values. Reply -2
  • The Last of Us' Season Pass and DLC detailed

  • C0mmander 29/05/2013

    For people to say they're not buying the game for this is a bit too much hyperbole for me. If you were gonna buy the game buy it. If you don't want the DLC don't buy it and they will know you don't want DLC why miss out on the whole game because of DLC you don't even need ? This game went Gold at the start May they've had a month to work on DLC using existing assets, its just the way the industry works now, as a developer you work on your game til it goes gold (After R & D), it goes through marketing, then when finally finished and checked for bugs it goes Gold. At this point Developers now usually start working on any DLC that didn't make it into the game usually (some developers don't) and take a short break afterwards before coming back sorting out any updates needed for the game and then eventually discussing their next project. My point here is its no use getting up in arms about this, yes its frustrating to have to almost always pay more for a game but this is likely all optional the story will probably end. The DLC is there for those who DO want more from the experience. My views might not be the popular one but I needed to state them because it confuses me how you won't buy a game because of DLC you don't need (With SF, SSF and SSFAE fair enough, you have the right to be pessimistic) but with this meh.

  • Next Xbox Reveal: live report and live video

    Plus if they were trying to gain market share in Europe or Japan it won't work when a lot of the TV services and the special NFL partnership will not be that big a deal in these markets. Reply 0
  • C0mmander 21/05/2013

    I am utterly underwhelmed. There was little talk of exclusive titles, the partnership with EA and Activision is meh especially Activision's which was predictable. I think the console itself is hideous, they've ruined the almost perfect formula they had for the 360 controller, and didn't speak about games for 32 mins of a 1 hour conference. I know E3 is coming up but Sony got a lot more out of the way at their reveal and had a laser sharp focus on games. I think at the moment PS4 is for me. Reply +1

  • Nintendo ditches E3 press conference in favour of behind-closed-doors events

  • C0mmander 25/04/2013

    @dogmanstaruk The thing is we can't possibly be in the nieche with the figures of people supposedly watching E3 live stream on just Gametrailers last year. Also E3 has the potential for social media sites to go crazy with people announcing what's just been shown at the conference. I mean a lot of games related stuff was trending on Twitter worldwide during the respective E3 conferences last year. Nintendo Direct is nice but E3 is your chance to get a HUGE fanbase talking. I never feel the anticipation for Nintendo Directs that I feel for stage shows Like E3 or GamesCom. Nintendo needed to be there to show off their big hitters and get some mind share. Because believe me after E3 is over Next Gen news for Sony and Microsoft will be through the roof and that's not even mentioning Sony's recent love of Gamescom and appealing to their Japanese audience likely a month or two before release at TGS.
    This is a big risk, but then again Nintendo have never exactly been that predictable.

  • Former BioWare boss: PS4 and next Xbox unlikely to cure "sick market for old-school gaming"

  • C0mmander 10/04/2013

    @ring_piece I think Nintendo's issue is the fact they continued down the 'innovation' first 'games' last attitude. What I mean by that is they didn't have enough ready on release and so therefore the console thus far (Wii U) has taken a steep decline into a pool full of trouble. They could very well get out of it at some point but even if they announce superb software to go along with it at E3 it probably won't work that well as the mind share will probably be shared something like 40% Sony (PS4), 40% Microsoft (Xbox New) and only 20% Nintendo (WiiU). This is excluding handhelds which I place in a different mindshare. I love Nintendo for its willingness to try and push the envelope like it did with DS and Wii especially but at this point I think they're in danger of becoming third best, not because of content but because of wasting the few months it had to really establish itself in the market and turn peoples heads away from saying I'll wait for PS4 or Xbox New.

  • Next Xbox won't be backwards-compatible, report says

  • C0mmander 09/04/2013

    @kevinboyle82 I completely agree I thought I was going crazy for thinking this. When PS4 said backwards compatibility would probably work in the cloud I was just like 'neat'. Its not a feature I expect from new consoles but rather one that is a cool addition. However this isn't a deal breaker if I'm gonna drop anywhere in the region of 400+ I'm damn well gonna play the life out of the games I'm buying the console with. I am leaning more towards PS4 because I prefer Sony's Exclusives however whatever console I get BC will not be a deal breaker for me! Reply +3
  • New Square Enix boss promises "fundamental review" of the entire company

  • C0mmander 03/04/2013

    @SheffAl I dunno about that. It's despite its problems very popular still I still like them even if they've gone off track. Their problem is too many though in hat they haven't completed their projects like FF Versus XIII and KH III games that both rely on he same division and were heavily anticipated have become essentially vapourware and these would have been big hitters for the company. What I've always liked about FF is each iteration changes up the formula and story that's why XIII had a problem with its 'saga' which will end later this year. Reply 0
  • C0mmander 03/04/2013

    @Cosmopolitan I think it is. I know everyone says 'remake this remake that!' but I have to say if they give FF VI the HD treatment for Vita or whatever else and add some new dungeons or whatever they might remember the kind of games they made in their best days. I say FF VI rather than VII because its easier to create HD assets in 2D. Overall though what they need o do is strip down the franchise and say gameplay first, story then cinematics last, they're nice to have but not the be all and end all of a good JRPG. Reply 0
  • Tomb Raider has sold 3.4 million copies, failed to hit expectations

  • C0mmander 26/03/2013

    @Quixz I mean Square's best selling PS2 games sold 6.6 million units (FFX) in the PS2 lifespan so surely 3.4 million is quite a significant amount regardless of the costs of this current generation as opposed to PS2. Black Ops sold 12 million on X360, I think even getting a quarter of that so fast is extremely impressive. Reply 0

  • Ubisoft "hurt" seeing Rayman Legends Wii U fans upset at delay, extends new olive branch

  • C0mmander 19/02/2013

    @SuperSoupy They probably are 'hurt' because they aren't the publishers in this video but the developers, and it is openly known that they were angry at Ubisoft's decision to not release the game. Plus they're probably even more hurt by the fact they thought the game had gone 'gold' only to find out they want to now compromise by making a challenge mode. To be honest its not their fault, its the higher ups in suits. Its unfair to say the developers aren't hurt as they could be working on something new or getting a break, but now they have to develop a game they thought finished. Reply +4
  • Original DMC creator a fan of the reboot

  • C0mmander 15/01/2013

    Wow, I had no clue he was at the helm of MGS: Rising. That's crazy it will essentially end up being his current work versus a reboot of a piece of work he helped create 12 years ago! I will be giving this game a rental as I played it recently and I think the game is alright and I like the New Dante's don't give a damn attitude. However at the moment after playing rising at a few conferences and the demo in ZOE HD I'd prefer to actually buy that game, but that might just be because I love MGS settings in general! Reply +2

  • C0mmander 03/11/2012

    @discoriggall Have to agree about the store I think it needs a redesign to add a few tweaks. To be honest the store update the PS3 got I think would suit the PSV touch screen more than it does the controller aas you could just swipe across each section and tap the letters on the search section. Reply +2
  • C0mmander 03/11/2012

    I absolutely love my Vita, I got it on release and I have played it twice as much as my 3DS this year. My Vita has not gathered any dust at all really, particularly because for me games on the PSV have more longevity, the reason for this is the trophy support attached to each. I had a big lull in buying games for it at the start in its launch but this didn't really affect me too much as I was still trying to receive all the bounties on UC:GA to finally get that platinum. Then there was the faithful port of UMvC 3 to tide me over when I just wanted a 5 minute gaming session. Then some big hitters came out MGS HD, Gravity Rush, Rayman Origins (Looks great on the OLED screen), Escape Plan, Super Stardust Delta, LBPV not to mention my PSP downloadable library as well as (eventually...) PSOne Classics, and now PS Mobile. I think there are a lot of incentives to buy one - but does the mass market know about its features or the games?! Sony's advertising (or lack thereof) is quite honestly abysmal. I've seen so many Xbox 360 and 3DS adverts in the last week and only seen 2 PSV adverts. Plus for me what put me off slightly and kept me hesitant when I bought mine at launch was the memory card price - I have a 16 GB and was least than amused by it. Sadly Sony's biggest struggle will be just that PRICE. It will struggle against 3DS because I can pick up a 3DS for about 159 cheapest and for PSV 199 - 229 for a bundle with a few games - which TBH isn't that bad but people want a bigger memory card than 4GB so you would have to shell out an additional 30. Although on the upside those who start buying cross buy products will start getting essentially FREE Vita versions if they buy enough of these games it will be a huge push for the handheld which will make me very happy as its a great piece of kit, with some good software and I want to hear less doom and gloom about it!

  • A dip in PlayStation sales but also a dip in Sony's losses

  • C0mmander 01/11/2012

    @ozthegweat I completely agree with this they need to streamline their products. Have a couple of huge premium and mid range handsets per year and put the money saved on developing other handsets to R & D, marketing and development of the new handsets - with the same going for some of their other lines such as their cameras having a low, mid and premium range released each year rather than about 10 a year!
    This way the savings they make would be larger for the fiscal year and on top of that if they felt the need they could put it to divisions such as PS mobile software or Playstation software for its gaming division to seal some great games. While it could be risky there's of course always the consideration of demand according to supply. Sorry for my essay guys!

    @LLJaf I did a personal review of Golden Abyss a while back and concluded that it was an 8.5 in my mind. I became so frustrated by some of the controls, not gonna spoil but towards the very end of the game there are some extremely irratating uses of touch screen melee and the fact you die instantly if you accidently balance the wrong way when on balancing beams. Overall though a great experience. Reply +1

As an upcoming game developer I hope I never have my artistic influences questioned like this.
