Is that more or less than the Wii U on release? I can't find a figure for the UK.

The Last Guardian creator "terribly sorry" for ongoing delays

axman303

4 years ago

"It will be good to be able to discuss it along with a post-mortem of The Last Guardian someday"

Does that mean it's dead?

Edit: I don't want it to be dead, SOTC is one of my top 3 all time fave games. It's just that post-mortem is defined in the dictionary as meaning operating on/examining a dead body.

Wow, do they really think they're going to change people's minds by continually going on about this? If anything, it'll likely draw more people's attention to the fact that it's an issue. Streisand Effect, much?

Maybe this will make more sense once we see what the other two parts are. At this point, I'm can't see how this is that much better than just downloading a Linux distribution and installing the Steam client. And the majority of people already run Windows or OS X where the thought of dual-booting would be a pain.

@jamyskis If everyone took the same stance, then zero units of consoles would be sold and thus there would be no market for games on them. It's a self-defeating attitude, unfortunately.

@specialgamer Not sure why your comment got so much hate, I agree with you.

I like Apple gear and earn a good enough wage that I've bought both Andoid and Windows 7 phones just to try them out to see if I like them. I happened to have found each OS annoying as far as instant, fast, intuative usability goes, so have so far stuck with an Apple phone. Some people (most, I'd argue) choose Apple gear from a position of knowledge, not from one of sheepish ignorance, as is often portrayed.

axman303

6 years ago

They made the best looking game at the start of the PS2's life *and* the best looking game at the end of the PS2's life. Everyone knows the PS3 is a right bitch to code for, add to that their exceptionally high ambitions for the animation and visuals for this game, it was always going to take a very long time to get right. Anyone who's watched the gameplay trailers will be more than happy to wait, as it looks like the most impressively alive and tactile video game of all time. By a LONG way.

Apple preparing pocket-sized iPad production - report

axman303

6 years ago

Rumours are talking about a 7" iPad, so not really pocket sized. And this is not confirmed and seems very unlikely from Apple, as the iPad UI scaled down to 7" would be rather fiddly. And the likelihood that they're going to ask developers to re-write their apps to support a smaller sreen, also seems unlikely. Perhaps a new device, which doesn't run either iPhone or iPad apps, just allows web-browsing, photos, music, films, etc.?
