  • Xbox 360 games are getting Xbox One boxes

    Looks like it's trying to trick people into thinking old games are Xbone games to me.

  • GAME charges people to try PlayStation VR in its shops

  • irve77 24/10/2016


    Sony have sanctioned this and if they had bothered to market PSVR to people then game wouldn't have the opportunity to make a quick buck.

    If you don't agree with game you don't pay them money for this sort of thing.

    Playing devils advocate if they have had to use a retail unit that they are then unable to sell as new why should they not charge ?

    If it turns out Sony have given them demo units AND permission to charge then that is a bit of a piss take. But again goes back to Sony they should have said no.

    I blame Sony

    I don't have a problem with this really. I'm not willing to pay the dosh but if people are then why not charge

    I blame sony for not having any demo units to promote in shopping centres up and down the country

  • Inside PlayStation 4 Pro: How Sony made the first 4K games console

  • irve77 21/10/2016

    I think Playstation have a vested interest in pushing PS Now subscriptions

    Microsoft have an interest in securing your brand loyalty with Backward compatibility.

    We might think that blurs the lines of generations but just look at the Wii fully compatible with Gamecube games and peripherals yet clearly not a gamecube.

    I'm still in 2 minds about the Pro. Sony are pushing a console yet not bothering to make any games for it themselves and i find that troubling !

  • Sony PlayStation VR review

  • irve77 05/10/2016

    It's all about the games in the end.

    just look a kinect 2 , they finally put out a version that worked with zero games
    it ended up an embarrassment !

    Luckily PS-VR already has an advantage in that even with quick throw away games it seems that it will be something impressive, just look at people talking about the Star Wars VR mission.

    I might get one in a year ... if they make some games for it and the Pro can provide a smooth output

  • Digital Foundry: Hands-on with the CUH-2000 PS4 Slim

  • irve77 09/09/2016

    You know it's crazy, MS really upped their game with the Xbone s and played a blinder including 4K blu-ray. So everything Sony is doing has a little shine taken off it.

    As it stands there is certainly no desire to go for this slim model, personally compared to the non-gloss second version of the original I think I prefer the slim it's certainly not a bad looking little black box and power and noise reductions are more than welcome.

    I doubt I would recommend it to anyone new to PS4 either, rather spend the extra 90 and go pro.

  • Microsoft's bullish response to Sony's PS4 Pro and slim

  • irve77 08/09/2016

    Yeah .. without a 4k blu ray player I'm sticking with my standard PS4

    it's kinda embarrassing they are releasing a pro version that is missing features on the 250 Xbone s

    what were sony thinking !

  • Project Scorpio: Games, proposed release date, price and everything we know about the new Xbox console

  • irve77 18/08/2016

    Scorpio seems a true step forward.
    I do wonder what plans have been changed for PS4 Neo in the last few months before it's official reveal in September.

    I also wonder if Scorpio's stats are set in stone.

  • Yes, there will be Project Scorpio VR-exclusives

  • irve77 18/08/2016


    I think you're right but i see it more of a case of natural wastage than Scorpio exclusives.

    So at launch you get a 900p 30fps Xbox one version and a 2160p 30fps Scoripo version

    year 3 you get a 900p 20fps low texture and simplified models Xbox one version and 2160p 30fps Scorpio

    people will stop playing new games on their Xbox one because it is an unsatisfying experience and upgrade.

    when that happens MS will drop UI improvements and comparability will fall by the wayside fewer and fewer people have Xbones.

  • Xbox One S console leak: 40% smaller, 2TB, 4K

  • irve77 13/06/2016

    2tb hard drive ?

    the irony being with expandable storage the Hard drive in the the Xbone isn't really relevant. my 500gb is backed up with a 1.5tb portable Hard drive.

    On the Sony front my 500gb drive is full ... had to clear over 80gb just to install NBA 2k16 this weekend. i would upgrade the hard drive but considering I have PT on there and no way of backing up and transferring data I'm stuck with a tiny amount of HDD space.

  • Xbox One update revamps store with Top Free, Top Paid categories

  • irve77 06/06/2016

    Kinect voice control and voice chat has been rubbish since the last update.

    Hopefully this will make it work again, after all it's not like there is any other reason to have a Kinect. even at the 20 i paid it seems very overpriced.

  • Capcom bans pro fighting game player due to sexual harassment

  • irve77 03/06/2016

    Everyone has friend where the normal social boundaries are not in place.

    However, lets look at this from the event organiser's perspective.
    they have a complaint
    the have a statement from the victim confirming the action was inappropriate
    (no "" there in victim).

    A Ban is appropriate action.

    Now it may well be that they are friends and he slightly overstepped in a way that didn't cause the girl offence.
    It could be that she didn't intend to confirm the action was inappropriate.

    doesn't change the facts as they stand he should be banned.

    Now if the Victim comes out and say hey that's not what i meant to say please review your decision and they refuse then people can complain.

    But for now good job Combo Breaker organisers

  • PlayStation VR will cost 349, out in October

  • irve77 16/03/2016

    Yay !!!

    All those people that bought the camera and had fuck all to do with it for 2 years can now buy a VR headset too.

    This may go the way of kinect in that it sells like hot cakes , is a nice idea but cutting corners on the tech make it ultimately a shallow experience that will lack quality games support.

    Fingers crossed though what will happen is, unlike kinect, the public and publishers are onside and this will act as proof of concept so that in 2 years PSVR2 gets released works as people expect it to work

  • PlayStation Plus' March Instant Game Collection includes Galak-Z, Broforce

  • irve77 25/02/2016

    I love the diehards that Neg down any comment that criticises Sony in any way.

    Facts are PS+ is a shadow of it's former self. That in and of itself would be fine and expected if it wasn't for the fact that the competition is providing much better value.

    PSnow technology could allow people without a PS3 games on their PS4 do they do this ... No

    Some people expect 2 Full price retail games on PS4 every month which is unreasonable.
    Some criticise anyone for expecting more than little niche titles.

    there is a middle ground here where people should expect a Full retail title every other month that wouldn't be unreasonable.
    People should expect a larger digital release every other month

    6 Full retail
    6 larger Digital
    12+ indies

    seems reasonable to me

    and it's not like there is a shortage of forgotten launch games that you could go for.

    Sony in the Lead is Sony at it's worst !

  • Rare and the rise and fall of Kinect

  • irve77 16/12/2015

    If they had not cut corners on the first Kinect it would have been fine

    Kinect 2 was finally at a level where it worked , but they lost the motorised adjustment from the first one and the damage from the failure to produce any games on the first one hurt it badly.

    it's the difference between people looking at sales figures and customer satisfaction stats

    ask someone who's has Kinect for 3 months if they are happy you'll get a fairly high positive number
    ask someone who's had Kinect for a year if they are happy you will get a very low number

    Also, the reason gesture control was a bust one the Xbone isn't to do with the accuracy of Kinect it's to do with the piss poor control scheme grabbing to move worked really well but who wants to push a button with an exaggerated push in pull out move ... pure dumbfuckary !

    as always Kinect has so much potential if people just work to it's limitations.

    proof in the pudding

  • irve77 27/08/2015


    I'm in the same boat I've only had an Xbone for about 4 months whereas I've had the PS4 since launch.

    My Xbone is the second class citizen playtime wise, but the line up for Christmas is better than sony , GwG is better than ps+

    but people don't want to hear it.
    People want to think that their black box is better in every single way than someone else's black box.

  • irve77 26/08/2015

    I love the fact that anyone who makes a valid point about GwG having a better line up than PS+ gets negged.

    Historically PS+ is a far better deal , the PS4 has a list of "free" games GwG just can't compete with. I will never get round to playing them all !

    However that doesn't change the fact that GwG has provided more Retail games of late and the PS+ offerings are getting worse , most notably on PS3, there are some great indie games in the PS+ offering but if you take this month

    an MS fan would say
    "super time force , I've had that for a year already and I'm getting a full price game this month"

    Add to that with BC on the horizon GwG is likely the best place for those "free" games.

  • PlayStation Plus July Instant Game Collection revealed

  • irve77 02/07/2015

    it's an 'ok' line up some interesting titles there.
    Things like Entwined are prefect fodder for the monthly updates as most people wouldn't part with money for it but will enjoy giving it a go. I'm happy for a selection of 5/10 - 6/10 indie type games to have a quick go on and make the developer a little extra money. Much like never alone as it failed to be a convincing game it's still a nice little experience when you've not directly parted with cash.

    I would say GwG has plus beat this month

    If geometry wars was crossbuy that might be too close to call.
    actually no scratch that AC4 is a solid and enjoyable game so it's an easy win for Microsoft this month.

    This is the sort of post release tweaking that should be free .. 20 !
    the entire game isn't worth 20 in it's launch state.

    Admittedly it's growing and evolving into a fully developed game but expecting people to pay for the privilege ?

    People pays their money and takes their pick , however I personally would wait for Destiny 2 and reap the benefits later

    Well they aren't the same thing now
    but lets say they are that was still in a time before every game being released in a broken state so all your old games would still work if you were adamant that you wanted to keep Linux on your system.

    Also remember the old adage of 2 wrongs not making a right.

    this is a worrying power that they (and likely sony) have.

  • irve77 15/05/2015

    you break a NDA you pay the price


    It is worrying that a system can be lock out from the internet considering that a boxed product these days is mostly unplayable before a 14gb day one patch.

    The machine should be unaffected. consider Microsoft's original plan for the Xbone , this would have enabled them to block your access to all your paid for content on a whim and, unlike this case, we've all heard stories of unreasonable and totally unfounded bans from xbox live.

    It's why I don't trust Microsoft or digital control of purchased media.

    ( and yet everything on my Xbone except Dead rising 3 is digital only )

    Would be interesting to see if Sony have the same power over the PS4. I would guess they do.

    I don't understand the people constantly expecting triple A full price releases for free, not going to happen for years.

    However, MS really need to pull their socks up and offer a little more give 2 indie games a month.

    Hopefully it'll be an announcement for e3 that they are improving the offering after "overwhelming positive feedback"

  • Jeff Minter "beyond disgusted" with Atari over TxK block

  • irve77 19/03/2015

    This would be like Bungie not being able to make FPS games because MS own Halo.

    TxK is needlessly similar to tempest because there is very little you can change with vector graphics, however, they could change the craft shapes to give it a little of it's own personality.

    If only Atari were like Activision or EA where the negative publicity might make them back down. As it stands what games do they have for people to boycott ?

  • With the announcement of the NX, Nintendo admits defeat with the Wii U

    the Wii U is a shocking case of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory

    to make the Wii U successful they had to do the following

    1> make it powerful enough to enable easy ports of 360 and PS3 games

    and that is it

    instant 3rd party support
    backed up with Big N exclusive
    all with a year before the release of the PS4 and Xbone.
