    @man.the.king My friend took his life due to suffering mental illness.

    Enjoy being the clever, all smug and self-righteous.

    All because you think I prefer a different console brand to you.

    Here's your red pill. Maybe it will help.
    So now you are insinuating I suffer a mental condition?

    Using a form of mental illness as a cheap internet come back is low, insensitive and disgusting.

    Bi-polar and the resulting condition traits aren't something to be cheapened to the level you have dragged it to.

    Pathetic considering the reason behind it is because I might prefer a different console from you.

    It's folks like dogmanstaruk who like to pretend they are objective while happily showing their hypocrisy that are annoying
    My lack of objectivity is in your mind. It has already been pointed out you only care when I appear to be on the Xbox One side of the fence - odd that.

    Anyway to clear things up because you appear to be upset.

    MGS:GZ - For both formats.

    1. It makes sense for Konami to include the title in PS+/XBL. It is a marketing tool for Phantom Pain.

    2. MGS:GZ is now 15 months old - I imagine those who are excited for GZ will probably have picked it up. Especially with it being included in several sales.

    Clearly my mistake is not looking back at my single line MGS:GZ PS+ comment from last month to ensure parity.

    Unlike yourself, I am busy meaning I don't have the time, or inclination to check my thoughts from last month's article to ensure my posts in a PS4 thread align with a XBL thread. I post what I think at the time.

    I don't need to do so. You appear to be willing to spend time your free reviewing my post history for me. Have fun.

    @UKPartisan True, it was especially expensive buying directly from UK import stores - 120 quid for JPN Street Fighter 2 turbo.

    Once the Internet opened up the majority of my imports came from Tronix and NCS.

    I kind of miss the old import days.

    Were you into importing? This current gen is the first where all my consoles are UK.

    A solid month, especially Ascension. While a 4th Kratos PS3 game really wasn't needed it is worth a play through.

    Quite keen to play the TR game too. Bought it on the PC, but never got round to playing it.

  • PlayStation 4's stunning sales success continues

  • dogmanstaruk 30/07/2015

    @Edz72
    Personally the sooner MS do get out of the market the better, hopefully replaced by a company that has a lot higher morals.
    Only an idiot would actively want a major player to drop out of the industry. MS have made mistakes, but so have Sony, Sega, EA, UbiSoft, CD Proj, Nintendo...etc

    What morals do Sony have:

    Refusing to refund customers who have hacked accounts.
    Banning accounts if the customer exercises their right to a credit card charge back for the fraudulent purchases.

    Sony has no better morals than any other global corporation. #4theplayers is marketing. Nothing more, nothing less.

    @grassyknoll I wasn't talking about sales at a business strategic level, I was discussing the mass market consumer.

    The mass market consumer has little to no knowledge of international sales figures. Neither do they care, nor should they.

    I'd also argue that exclusive DLC such as COD, or early access to Betas have little influence in manipulating sales. Console pack ins and joint marketing? Yes.

    Tomb Raider - The sales will be down to a higher install base in the territories and the current momentum of the PS4. This isn't surprising - games sell better on the PS4. Nothing to do with the world wide TR brand being more aligned with Sony.

    @XbDf
    @dogmanstaruk during the 90's TR was a Sony exclusive,times have changed and now it's a multiplat just like SF should be.
    Yes and No.

    Tomb Raider - PlayStation/Saturn/PC
    Tomb Raider 2 - PlayStation/PC
    Tomb Raider 3 - PlayStation/PC

    After that point TR titles were console multiformat (Dreamcast), with the exception of AoD. After AoD every TR game has appeared on a Xbox console.

    Apart from Sony using LC in some marketing during the 90s I'm not sure why the game would be associated with the PlayStation platform.

    @grassyknoll
    Tomb Raider's sales are so Playstation heavy that it's no doubt going to hurt stand alone sales by a quite dramatic margin.
    The last PlayStation "console" exclusive Tomb Raider was Angel of Darkness. One of only 3 Tomb Raider games which only appeared on a PlayStation Console, although all 3 of these games were available on PC. All other Tomb Raider releases have been console multiformat.

    Perhaps Lara Croft was more associated with the PlayStation brand during the 90s, but not now.

    edit - removed sarcasm.

    Most people wouldn't even know when or where Gamescom is or would care.
    Most people don't know or care about sales figures, hardware variations, exclusive dlc or the difference between 1080p/900p.

    Yet you post as if these are deciding factors for the mass market.

    @grassyknoll Hopefully the timing between E3 and Gamescom next year will allow the focus to return to Gamescom.

    It is an important event.

    Still, we should get some good announcements during PGW.

    @riceNpea I much prefer the American Store's summer campaign for new releases rather than the UK store's Summer Sale.

    The US store also has the flash sales which at times offers deep discounting.

    @darth_paul Very true, which is why I mentioned Europe overall is such an important Sony market - it captures the big and the small.

    I didn't necessarily mean Microsoft's approach was the correct one. I just think they will concentrate on the traditional larger gaming markets, excluding Japan for obvious reasons.

    Quite embarrassing isn't it.

    Strange he doesn't ask PC gamers how 1440p/4k is. Typical fanboy stance - quick to belittle others through resolution while conveniently forgetting there are better options out there.

    No. In Spain PS4 has sold over 10 times the Xbox One,
    True, but markets such as Spain are small fish.

    MS will concentrate on the US, UK and in Europe markets such as France and Germany (both extremely tough nuts to crack).

    Overall Europe is a very important market for Sony, which makes their lackadaisical approach to Gamescom odd.

    @grassyknoll Question is do MS do a 360 and jump into the next gen earlier than anticipated?

    I'm not sure they will, but it may happen.

    The 3rd console hubris hit MS hard. MS and Mattrick's obsession with Kinect was a massive miss step. I think Phil Spencer is doing a decent job, but in many ways it is damage control as I can't see them over leapfrogging Sony this gen.

    Sony on the other hand are doing a fantastic job with the PS4. Next year can only get better once the titles from their WWS start to drop. E.G. U4 and Horizon.

    Bought my PS4 day one and no regrets. Like the PS3 the PS4 is my main console this gen, with the Xbone for console specific exclusives.

    but somehow it failed to compare with CoD.
    Which is good!

    GG managed to create a multiplayer experience distinct from COD.

    KZ multiplayer is great fun. The only downside being the small community.

    Xbone players should see a market improvement from GZ with PP apparently being 1080p on the XO.

    @mo0trix I'd argue that a good fps player can use both the mkb and joypad.

    I started fps online with Quake test, and while I would never describe myself as a top tier fps player I am equally comfortable playing with both forms of input. It usually takes a couple of games to adjust, but you do get into the swing of things.

    I would agree that some forms of fps are less suited for the controller e.g. twitch arena. Equally I have little interest in playing Halo with mkb.

    @mo0trix FPS games are fine with a controller.

    but put those console players into a match against PC players and watch them look like novices
    The M&KB isn't some form of magic wand which blanket transforms PC gamers into amazing fps players. It takes more than a control scheme to be a good fps player.

    I play and enjoy fps regularly on PC/ console and I've encountered good and bad players on both platforms.

    @ghostgate2001 Nah, keyboard control for fps movement is great - nice and responsive.

    I can see why it might feel slightly alien for those who have only played fps with a controller.

  • dogmanstaruk 28/07/2015

    Beta is beta.

    This is what happens when publishers and hardware platform holders use Betas as marketing tools and glorified demos. Sony announced at least 3 pre-order Betas during their E3 conference.

    People get upset and angry on the internet due to disappointment.

    @dogmanstaruk They could have just ported the original game to PS4 and by all accounts that is the better experience.
    How is it the better experience on the PS3?

    Before we even discuss the technical aspects there is the controller. Using the DS4 alone improves the experience.
