E3 Reaction: Microsoft vs. Sony: The Console War Is Over, For Now

JahB

6 years ago

@Timotei given that they both apparently see their xmas business as more important than undercutting the wii u with their own console announcements, yes. both announced some decent looking games (albeit too many sequels and prequels for my taste) to keep us busy till the next machines arrive.

i just wonder what nintendo's machine will be able to do, the fact that the two main competitors seem to be completely ignoring them shows big confidence for both the next xbox and playstation.

all things considered, they could have done a lot worse.

both did a good job imo, still looking to deliver at least some quality for the last year of this gen. would give the nudge to sony simply because they went out on a limb and threw big money at some new IPs.

Prototype dev: gamers thought Alex Mercer "was a d**k"

JahB

6 years ago

I liked prototype just for that. And the awesome gameplay.

Games don't let you be the bad guy enough. I'm not talking about half assed moral choices a la fable, but simply the bad or flawed guy. It gets very tiring to continuously be the ken doll hero that saves the world and gets the girl, so I'm all for more Alex Mercers and John Marstons instead of the endless parade if dudley do right super heroes.

Why Devs Owe You Nothing

JahB

6 years ago

@redcrayon
While skyrim was exceptionally broken - personally I'm wondering how it got through the submission process - it's not a fair representation of the state games generally ship in. Most games today are relatively bug free at launch, which is impressive given not only how more complex games are today than they were years ago, but also in light of ever tighter, publisher-set deadlines.

They are also much better than they used to be: this gen has seen an enormous increase in game quality, with bigger teams, better tech and budgets we wouldn't have dreamed of only a few years back.

But despite much better games, online services and extra features gamers have today, they complain more than they ever did before. So I don't think you can blame devs for not caring or communicating - no matter how good your game is these days, the self entitled X-factor generation the article speaks about will always find something to be outraged about.

Fantastic read. About time that point of view was represented too.

We're sometimes talking about the good old days at the studio I work at, where you released a game and players were happy.

These days you release a game and you get tons of twats bitching and moaning and screaming "patch this" "change this", as if they had the ghost of a clue.

that's what you get for releasing a psp without monster hunter. that game alone carried the psp in japan, and the fact that sony didn't throw everything and the kitchen sink at capcom to make an MH launch title happen shows how out of touch with reality they are.

@UnblestCarpet its not a non issue. It's a huge waste of space for everybody that didn't preorder or buy the DLC, and xbox hdds are small and expensive.

I think the price will be the same as for PSP games. As hardware gets better, development costs go up, so I think the big titles will stay at 40 quid, and they'll offer tons of Psn titles and minis for less.

You're missing his point. His problem is that he sees the holder of the IP, Lucasarts, benefit more than the game's publisher, EA.

It would be like infinity ward making more money on cod than activision. Unthinkable, in a world of greedy suits.

"We wanted to show, certainly in some particular cases, we wanted to show the effect of war," explained creative director Bret Robbins. What happens if a modern American city gets attacked?"

So why exactly does the game feature british civilians being blown up, but not a single american civilian? Apparently shock value is ok as long as it's russians (mw2) or europeans...
