Payday 2 sells 1.58 million

Dark_Era

Seeing as retail supplies are still coming through in drips and drabs, they would have sold more than that if they 505 had addressed those issues.

But at the end of the day, KUDOS to them. They broke even with just pre orders.
They must be doing something right.

I know they say they are targeting the core gamer, but I'm right in thinking that this is going to be more of a OUYA competitor than it is a XboxOne/PS4 competitor.

Nintendo records quarterly profit despite abysmal Wii U sales

Dark_Era

5 years ago

Looking at the Wii U numbers, I now understand the reasoning behind ASDA pulling the Wii U from it's stores.(They still are selling it online though, so it ain't all doom and gloom.)

Nintendo Needs to sort some kind of miracle.

CliffyB appeals to Phil Fish for games industry return

Dark_Era

5 years ago

Lets be honest here, it ain't like Cliffy is a saint himself, he also throws abuse out there.

On a different note, if people like Einstein, Galileo, Archimedes, Luther King Jr., Tarantino, etc all gave up on what they were doing at the slightest abuse they got then the world wouldn't be what it is today.

Case and point, if you really love and enjoy what you do and not do it because you want to "please" people, then what ever comes your way isn't going to stop you from doing it.

In Theory: Can Xbox One multi-platform games compete with PlayStation 4?

Dark_Era

5 years ago

A good read, Also shed some light as in until both platforms are released to the public and proper games are released, we won't really know what benefits and short comings of each platform in the real world are.

Roll on Fall 2013 and beyond.

@hiscore Very true.

What i even see happening is multi platform games being scaled to the same level of performance just to please and not upset both platform makers.

I've been told you can actually finish the game(Story) with the starter pack(Game+2 Figures) but then you need other figures to branch out for stuff like side quests because they all have different powers n stuff.

Microsoft kills game ownership and expects us to smile

Dark_Era

@Dismiss

I really feel like because MS decided all games were to be installed the only way they can do this and not have games installed on multiple boxes without losing money is by putting in these shitty measures.

They messed up from the day someone decided "hey we should make all games mandatory installs"

@Bludsh0t that is the situation MS are finding themselves in at the moment.

Because of BD read/write speeds, they have decided to implement mandatory installs and i feel it might be a little too late to go back on that decision.

And the thing with unregistering is once you sell it, what is to stop "Jon Doe" from not really unregistering it before selling it on and leaving the buyer in a predicament.

Dark_Era

Disc insurance?, this so shows how long its been since I actually bought from a game store. They actually try to flog that? So what for an extra £5 if my disc gets scratched I get a new one?

I think blockbuster does some neat prices if you pre order from them. Got forza, assassins creed, and on Friday saints row 3 for £35. And they give you store vouchers too. But the supermarkets still dwarf them on most titles.
