    Because we get tedious PC gamers trolling every console article?

    Not saying I agree with it, but it's not like there are no PC trolls on this site.

  • PlayStation 4 passes 2m sales in UK

    @HeroJez

    But the PS4 is a games console, I didn't say it shouldn't have those extras. But Sony chased the "all in one" last gen and spent a fair chunk of time catching up to the Wii and 360.

    The fact they haven't rushed to get DNLA out of the door backs my point that they see it as a games console with media extras.

    What a load of rubbish how on earth is a gaming console that improved on EVERYTHING from the previous console (suspend and resume, party chat, remote play, background downloading, play whilst you download, the DS4, share button, share play) any sort of step back?

    DNLA is not a gaming console essential it's a media extra, nice and all but it's not to do with gaming (which is what the PS4 is).

    So I fail to see how a games console that adds things its predecessor could never do is a step back.

    Love mine, the little difference between the PS3 and PS4 is a huge plus for me.

    Party chat, remote play, share button and of course suspend and resume! (And background downloading) has made my gaming experience much more enjoyable.

    I don't know about that, there are a few games I want to play but don't have a lot of time for atm with my PS4 backlog. Being able to rent one of these games a couple of days at a time at my choosing is quite appealing to me.

    I assume the saves are stored so I can always rent it for longer when I have more time or a day or two when I want to mix it up.

    Plus I believe there is a sub service but only selected titles so again that's a hard sell for me.

    "Possible sales"

    So not actual sales? Haha

    I'm glad you "enjoy" your console I'm sure it's a great console and one day I will buy one as I don't have a strange hatred for the X1 like you do for the PS4.

    But I don't have the need or the time to own one yet.

    I believe that they make a loss on the console so they make up for it with over priced extras.

    I do remeber there was a shock the Vita launched at what 230/280. People expected 350+ (funnily enough they expected 400+ for the PS4).

    2011 I'm surprised it's lasted this long!

    What the heck I'll bite. Why?

    Well as a PS3 owner and Vita owner it made sense.

    I am also a plus member and have been day 1
    so I'm never short of games.

    Friends, and with party chat and better invite systems is a easier to game on my PS4 with my buddies online.

    Remote play is a godsend as I'm a family man and as I'm digital only I can pick up my Vita, turn on the PS4 and game away.

    The 3rd party support.

    The exclusives appeal to me more.

    And THE most important reason is I have fun on my PS4, Infamous, DC, GTA 5, Bloodborne, TLOU rm, Diablo 3, PVZ GW, FIFA, Resogun, Awesomenaughts, BF4.. I don't care if they are on other platforms they are on the platform of my choice so it's cool that others have them also.

    That doesn't make sense are you talking from release date so from November 2006 - November 2008? As the PS4 is into it's second year now and has already sold 22.3 with 7/8 months left.

    Looking at VGchartz the Wii sold 24.9million in the same time frame, so that's a difference of 2.6million not a lot in it really, considering the Wii's mass market appeal.

    I don't expect it to match the Wii, but its not miles behind as some may think. It certainly surprised me. Although my info is from VG charts...

    @ubiquitousuk

    What you need to understand is that, from a legal perspective, as soon as you renew your PS Plus subscription you are entering into a new contract with Sony.
    Yes I know this you are paying them for a service and they must provide that service for the length of time that you have paid for, I know this.

    So absolutely, if you let a tenancy lapse and later renew the tenancy then you can go right back and continue to enjoy the house you were renting.
    I am willing to bet you have never dealt with a landlord before? See this is the difference you are entering an agreement with the landlord that YOU will continue to pay monthly rent for as long as you are living in that house. If you stop paying you have to vacate the property.

    Also once you vacate that house you cannot go back unless that house is free and the landlord agrees to it. Where as with Plus unless you are banned for breaking T&C's Sony won't turn you away, or give those games you accumulated to someone else.

    Plus also the fact that you can pick where you live, you cannot pick the games you want with Plus, much like you can't pick the films Netflix have.

    Which is the biggest difference. As with a rental service you can pick from a range of cars, houses or DVDs. But with the IGC you don't get to pick which games come the collection.


    Similarly, if you let your landline phone line *rental* lapse then several months later you can sign a new contract and the service is right back.
    But at no guarantee with the same T&C's or the same package.


    If you return a DVD to a video store then you can rent it again for another two nights provided you pay another rental fee (which, formally, entails entering into a new contract of sale).
    But that is one item, if you then go back and rent another DVD you don't get that one as well as any previous DVDs you have rented do you? Also again you pick what DVD you want you cannot do that with the IGC.

    Plus has and always will be a subscription service, you don't own any of the games that are in the IGC but you do have access to them for as long as you are subscribed.

    @IronSoldier
    Don't rentals have a set end date? Like 24 hours, 2 days or 30 days for example. And normally one day.

    With Plus you set the end date. You could have plus for a year or 5.

    Yes you are locked out of your games if the subs lets. But as soon as you resub you gain access to previous games again.

    I am unaware of any rental service that works like this.

    But if you stop paying you are kicked out you can't go back a year later and just hand the landlord money and he lets you back in.

    Utterly pointless comparison.

    As its been explained as soon as you re sub all the games you had previously are accesible again.

    But they are just remasters. The gameplay, the level design, the story, is still the same.

    Halo AE is not a different game than Halo. It's an improved version but it's still the same.

    It's like TLOU some people claim that the remaster with its 1080p and 60fps make it a different game. It doesn't it improves the experience but it's still the same game.

    At the end of the day if you wanted to play all 4 of the games in that collection, even just for the sp you can without buying MCC and X1.

    Which is why the MCC is not an exclusive, is it a collection of great games improved and in one nice bundle? Well other that it taking 5 months to sort online yes, does it not being exclusive effect it's quality? No not in the slightest.

    Yet you have gone on some strange crusade to try and prove those who tell you it's not exclusive wrong. Despite that fact you ignore the very definition of the word exclusive.

    This whole argument that just because a game is playable on another system it therefore means it can't be an exclusive is nothing more than fanboy logic.
    By fanboys I take that you mean those who are fanboys of the English language and the meaning of the word exclusive.

    used to aid the numbers game when weighing up both consoles..
    Only when you have morons claiming a game is exclusive when it is not.

    .oh you can stream PS3 games to Samsung TV's via Playstation Now you say? PS3 has no exclsuives!


    Very fair point, although from what I believe the TV is a device used to connect to the Now service which I believe involves a PS3, so the TV itself isnt playing the game its streaming one.


    You can play PS4 games on Vita via remote play? PS4 has no exclsuives!
    Quite ironic you use this argument. Can I ask if you own a Vita and DON'T own a PS4 can you still play those games? No you cannot, the Vita isn't playing the games the Vita is having content from the PS4 streamed to it.

    Uncharted and LBP are available to play on iOS and Android mobiles? They're not Playstation exclsuives etc etc.


    Incorrect Uncharted 1,2 and 3 are not on mobile. Neither is LBP 1 or 2. I think you seem to be confusing the actual games with mobile cash in's.

    Forza Horizon 2 is not exclusive either using this logic (of course) but both games are really VERY different experiences,
    No actually you do have a point, and the games are very different they just share the same brand name, so imo they are exclusive/


    likewise with Halo MCC, you certainly won't be experiencing Halo 2 in all
    Other than technical stuff has much changed? By your logic TLOU remaster is a whole new game as it has 60fps and 1080p therefore making it a different game?


    it's modern glory which completely enhances the experience (as does Halo CE Anniversary), not to mention all the other engine tweaks and FPS enhancements made to the other games, being able to set up playlists of any level from any game is impossible to experience outside of Xbox One.
    But okay lets say I did agree with your first point, that's only two of the 4 games, and those 2 are playable on PC.

    Halo MCC is an exclusive, it's no big deal just admit it and stop crying about it for heavens sake
    I can play every single one of those games without buying a Xbox 1

    Here is the proof

    Xbox 360 - 129

    So what you are saying is... It's not exclusive?

    There is no such thing as mostly exclusive.

    There are 3 Halo games on PC.

    But anyway regardless that wasn't my point my point was that the Halo games are not exclusive to the MCC on X1 which they are not.

    I can play every game in that collection without owning an X1.

    Which means it's not exclusive.

    I suggest you maybe learn what the word exclusive means.

    For those of you who are struggling to grasp the meaning of the word exclusive here is a definition..

    Exclusive: an item or story published or broadcast by only one source.

    So the fact that every game in the MCC are published on previous MS console means that those games are not exclusive to the X1.

    Hope this helps.

    You clearly don't know what the word exclusive means.

    Halo 5 is not released yet, but that is the only Halo games exclusive to the X1.

    All other Halo games can be played without having to buy an X1. Hence why MCC is not an X1 exclusive.

    The IP isn't even fully exclusive as two of the games in the series are on PC.

    I'm not saying this as a bad thing, I'm just saying that neither you or Skippy understand the word exclusive.

    The online troubles of DC where fixed back in December, so you are grossly missinformed.

    They gave away DLC that was meant to be paid for free as an apology.

    Also you don't need an X1 to play any of those games do you? I can play all of those games on a 360.

    The Halo IP is not fully exclusive.

    Halo is on Xbox and PC and was remastered for 360 and now X1.

    Halo 2 on Xbox, X1 and PC

    Halo 3 on 360 and X1

    Halo 4 on 360 and X1

    I'm pretty sure when a game is playable on more than one console it's not exclusive.

    Much like how TLOU is not a PS4 exclusive as
    it's also on PS3.

    The difference is 4 weeks later Driveclub still isn't fixed, and both the feature adding patch and free DLC remain MIA.

    The good news is MS have officially responded straight away. It took over 24 hours for the PS Blog to acknowledge Driveclub's problems despite all the posts on their site.

    I'm willing to bet MS resolve this pretty quickly.
