  • Microsoft announces EA Access-style Xbox Game Pass subscription

  • Edz72 28/02/2017

    Great idea if it gave you access to all games, but for me the reality is if I wanted to play a game i would have brought it near release. I have no interest in play old shit games. My time is worth too much to me.

    Much like Netflix which I still pay monthly but the difference being is access to original new content that I can't get anywhere else. Maybe MS should have exclusive games on this like crackdown and sea of theives then it would be far more appealing.

  • Jelly Deals: Nintendo Switch pre-orders back 'in stock' from Nintendo itself

  • Edz72 06/02/2017

    Personally I think the switch looks like good value at 280 and although the launch lineup isn't top notch having zelda on day one is something special, but all that aside this is the first console generation where I feel content with what I have (ps4 pro) and see no reason to own a second console. Don't want or need a second online sub and at the moment I can't realistically keep up with all the games I already want this year on the console I already own. Reply +1

  • The race for 4K: how Project Scorpio targets ultra HD gaming

  • Edz72 27/01/2017

    At this point in time it is looking very much that the Scorpio will end up being a more powerful ps4 pro. If that is the case then that will be extremely disappointing, not that there is anything wrong with the ps4 pro but it means the benefits for 1080p tv owners will be minimal at best outside exclusives which as we know if not ms strength at the moment :-/ Reply -1

    Fell asleep watching the first video, think I will leave watching the second one until it's near my bed time.

    Gears has to be one of the most over rated games in history. Utter shite with absolutely no redeeming features.

  • PlayStation 4's stunning sales success continues

  • Edz72 30/07/2015

    @SwissTony1994 Jesus ... You really up Sony's arse aren't you?

    So you honestly think that MS have low morals? Lower than Sony's? don't give me that shit.

    Oh and where do you work out the Microsoft haven't bought anything positive to the games industry. They are the ones that pushed Sony to be better, and likewise Sony are pushing Microsoft to be better as well ...

    So you think Microsoft leaving the market would be the best for the industry do you ... Then your a fucking idiot ...

    What the hell are you prattling on about, just because I despise MS and what they done (nothing btw) for gaming does not mean I think Sony are saints...
    And yes I would be very happy if they left the gaming industry, more than happy if they were replaced by a company who gave a crap about it's consumers. I don't actually think we could do any worse (with the exception of Apple).

    @XbDf I never had a PS1/2 so I can't comment. All I know anyone with the forum name XbDf deserves to be taken outside and beaten with a big stick. Reply +7
  • Edz72 30/07/2015

    @jabberwoky Still hard to forgive MS for trying to get rid of used games. Still they have had the kicking they deserved and I hope they survive and learn rather than get thrown out of the market.

    Personally the sooner MS do get out of the market the better, hopefully replaced by a company that has a lot higher morals. MS have brought absolutely nothing positive to gaming whatsoever, and that is clear to see reading XbDf's posts..

    @mega-gazz That is exactly my point. So suddenly they are going to see the big hitters advertised by Sony and think oh that's now the machine to play those games I will grab one of them. This is a complete role reversal from last gen. It will now be interesting if MS can keep the momentum going with exclusives year on year like Sony did with the PS3. Reply +1
  • Edz72 30/07/2015

    @mega-gazz Your wrong, Sony has MGS5, Battlefront, COD3 & AC because to the average gamer they will see the adverts promoting those games on the PS4 and won't notice or care that you can get them on another system. The hardcore gamers are the only ones that take notice and they have already made their choice, and if they wanted both they would have bought them last year... Reply +2

  • Microsoft's difficult choice at E3 2015

  • Edz72 11/06/2015

    Really enjoyable read, yet all I hope is that Microsoft crash and burn at E3. Better still close down would make my day/week/year. Not going to happen but I can only hope....
    Nothing against the Xbox one per se just despise the company and their money grabbing morals. Typical large brash American company determined to monopolise and drive gaming into the ground once it's rinsed dry.

  • PlayStation 4 lifetime sales pass 22.3m worldwide

  • Edz72 30/04/2015

    @ziggy_played_guitar No the 360 was the Chav console because it was associated primarily shooters, where as the PS3 had a much more broad range of Eastern & Western games. This gen looks no different in fact possibly worse as imo the 360's best and most interesting game Alan Wake has been scraped for a generic looking 3rd person shooter?
    It had nothing to do with sales...

  • Xbox One UK price now 299.99

  • Edz72 13/04/2015


    Not bothered about the lack of drive as I already have a PS3/PS4 for Blu-ray. 1TB is no where near large enough though. Kinect should have stayed imo, it's a better console with it than without. Wouldn't buy one regardless because I don't rate their exclusives and unlike last generation they don't have the better performing multiplatform games which leaves me very little reason to be interested in one regardless of price.

  • Edz72 13/04/2015

    If MS want their console to be market leader then start by making Xbox live free. No point reducing the cost of the box when you only end up spending more to use the thing.

    Personally I wouldn't touch a One even if they were giving them away, crappy games on a crappy console....

  • Does Scholar of the First Sin make Dark Souls 2 worth returning to?

  • Edz72 09/04/2015

    The game is driving me bonkers atm, but still loving it :)

    Weapon durability, more/different enemies and blocked paths (statues) is making me feel like I am running around in circles atm...

    If nothing else at least I feel like I'm not rushing through and having to open up other areas to progress.

  • Performance Analysis: Dying Light

  • Edz72 29/01/2015

    Good news for me that the best console version is again on the PS4 :)

    Shame for XB1 owners, but tbh I don't really give a crap about them, just pleased my version will be the better of the two. It's a lot sweeter when you know you've backed the right companies products, the cheaper product and now you find that you also got the better product.

    I have one friend with an XB1 and I take great pleasure telling him how shit it is especially when DF back it up, unfortunately he agrees with me.

  • Don't call it a comeback: Xbox One's first year

  • Edz72 22/11/2014

    One big difference between both companies. One (Sony) aim to innovate and offer new and potentially exciting features to the console, and the other only gives a shit about their profits.
    Both share play and remote play are exciting opportunities and something we have never seen before in the console space where as kinect which should have been no different appears to have ditched in favour of more forza, halo, fable, zzzzz.

    @MeBrains You clearly have one not like some posters in this thread.

    Yes competition is generally good for the industry but not when it has a negative impact like we are currently having to endure ;-/

    Let's just take a look shall we:

    Online fees
    Proprietary peripherals
    Inflated game prices compared to other platforms (PC)

    I'm sure there's more but everything above was implemented last gen and has only got worse this gen :(
    Some would argue about game prices but these should have been driven down due to healthy competition but they haven't due to the high licence fees imposed by the manufacturer's.

    @Caribou And Edz, fair one, I misread your comment. Not that I agree, Sony may have tried their luck if microsofts e3 reveal hadn't tanked so hard.

    Firstly thanks for acknowledging your mistake, and secondly just to make my views crystal clear this has absolutely nothing to do with the console wars or whatever you want to call it, this has everything to do with the manufacturer's earning my respect as a consumer. Sony did this with the PS3 by way of offering online gaming for free, rewarding customers for their loyalty and generally eating humble pie over the PS3's lifetime. MS need to learn this as in my opinion they still haven't, and still have the attitude that gamers should be thankful for their business and what they are paying for. A perfect example is the free games every month, why not offer more than your competition, not less (it just feels like they were forced to do it when they didn't want to).

    Now we have all the proprietary crap from both manufacturer's which was born from the 360 (new headset, play and charge kit, licenced steering wheels) Money, money, money :(

    I'm sure everything will be just peachy when Sony have a monopoly on console gaming /copious sarcasm

    Copious stupidity more like. Not once did I indicate that I wanted Sony to be only console manufacturer, and I have just as much respect for Nintendo as I do for Sony.

    Unfortunately this respect does not extend to money grabbing American corporations like MS.

  • Edz72 13/11/2014

    Shame the Xbox One is still selling imo, the sooner MS leave the console scene the better.

    Oh well hopefully it will tank next year and we can get some decent competition, run by a company who actually gives a crap about the consumer, not one who wants to bleed gamers dry at every opportunity.

    If MS make XBL free then I will buy their console tomorrow. But as it sands I cannot justify paying two lots of 40 a year just so I can have both the PS4 & One. Also as the XB One would only be used for exclusives there is no way I want to be paying to play a couple of games a year online. Reply +8

    @Suarez07 Strength of the pound has nothing to do with it, it's the same price in the US as it has been from day one. I didn't know about the deal but it appears to be a limited time offer so not really the same. Oh and Americans don't care about Fifa but they could have swapped it out for Madden etc. It just seems that MS are quite happy to ignore their homeland and appease the UK which seems short sighted?

    Personally I don't care I think the Xbox brand is garbage.

    If I was American I would pretty pissed at MS. First the give the UK Fifa 14 free with the launch console. Now they drop the price in the UK.
    What have they done for the US customers/potential customers?

    Even though Sony delayed the launch of the PS4 in Japan at least they give them a game (Knack) with the console.
