PS4 just had its best three months ever

@grassyknoll You're better off just using shipped when comparing all of them, more accurate than anyone even the companies sold through numbers and for the most part it's not like retailers are buying stock they won't sell.

European Commission to investigate Valve and five publishers over suspected geo-blocking

Dreadaxe

1 year ago

If they are going to offer the same or equivalent prices in all member states it won't be the cheaper price we get.

They'll charge everyone the higher price and lose out on sales in the poorer countries.

None of this applies to Russia, EU single market members only.

@internisus They had the points half price there a month ago, it was mostly a glitch as all point and such were meant to be excluded.

But I agree, console got sale after sale but those point never were reduced until recently and only due to a glitch.

Steam will support PS4 controllers natively on PC

Dreadaxe

2 years ago

Good news, hopefully this extends to UI as well, would like to see PS button prompts rather than having to reconcile which button is which.

Would likely have to do their own as they wouldn't be able to use the Sony trademark ones(the colour & size matter, trademark wouldn't obviously apply to all squares and such)

Mafia 3 is locked at 30fps on PC, much to Steam users' chagrin

Dreadaxe

2 years ago

Don't know that PC gamer can do.

If developers whether due to their own time/money limitation or at the behest of a publisher aren't putting the resources into the PC version what can be done to change that.

With refunds, boycotts, and people just passing on a game, will this lead to greater investment in the PC version in the future or less. Will they decided to spend less again for what sales they do get or push to properly support PC at a greater expense to increase sales.

Also while I'm not saying people shouldn't be critical or call out this treatment, there's also the fear that negative press would deter them releasing a PC version as they may see it as negatively effecting coverage of the game as a whole. Publishers spend 10s of millions on the games and then multitudes of that on publicity.

As there're few reviews up I can't say how the game is, but due to this PC version what news and reporting is out is negative.

Spent $60 on it as it's "normal" game price. Won't be too disappointed but will likley be onto my CC to report it for whatever good that does.

At this stage the devs aren't able to do a runner and live, some people have put insane amounts into it and out of the 100s thousand who have there's a rather high chance 1 or 2 will take it into their own hands.

DICE's Great War: classes, horses and more in Battlefield 1

Dreadaxe

2 years ago

Hopefully horses are somewhat realistic and not just a remodelled bike.

Other games would have the player die when their vehicle was destroyed but I'd prefer that if the horse is killed that the player is either thrown or perhaps crush dependant on the hit and horse's movement.

Honestly considering the special edition for the lawrence of arabia stuff (don't even know what will be in it yet)

Helldivers, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax headed to PlayStation Plus in February

Dreadaxe

@Murton The DLC is getting a 50% discount for this.

The November discount for the edition with the DLC was 15 (down from 30), and this discount with plus means you can buy the full mega reinforcement DLC pack with all the DLC for 10 (originally 20).

There's 2 packs a reinforcement pack (some of the DLC) and a mega reinforcement pack (all of the DLC) going by memory, and then all the separate DLCs which would cost a lot more separately.

Sorry don't know sterling prices off hand.

Citizen of Super Earth! Show your dedication to the HELLDIVERS with an exclusive PS4 theme. Want a boost for your personal armoury? Save 50% on HELLDIVERS DLC from 2 February 1 March 2016 on PS Store.
Honestly not sure if the DLC pack is included but hopefully.

That's step 1 in dealing with this, stop them getting attention and any attention shouldn't give them any credit or power. Don't refer to them by whatever name they go by, just say cunts and stop referring to DDOS as hacking.

Also why do ISIS still have their twitter accounts up and these fucker get suspended straight away.

@melnificent that 14 days as you said is only until the service/product is diwnloaded/starts.

All these sites and services world it perfectly to state that the service start when you buy it, look at steam for the best example.

Also why digital pre-ordered games can be cancelled easily, done this for a lot of beta access. Early Access would be excluded from this as your getting something there abd then.
