Hearthstone beta "validated" free-to-play approach, Blizzard says

3. Quit the game. Realize that you have neither the time to grind for the cards or money to spend on packs and find something else.

I'm ashamed to say I took option no 3. Matchmaking could be a tad more relaxed in this game though. I got severly thrashed in play mode with my standard decks.

I wonder why they had to f*ck it up with the iOS version, the game costs money but to play it in a fluent manner you still have to invest money. Just make it a few pounds/euros more expensive and deliver a full game ffs.

@gallow Because my ps3 makes a lot of noise, consumes about 1 megawatt of power and always needs to install an update whenever I switch it on.

Most of you are missing the point. This is not aimed at seasoned gamers, it's just a gateway for Amazon services. The majority of the world's population doesn't give a shit about our precious consoles, pc's and our thoughts about gaming in general.

PS4 sales do the business for Sony

oupe

4 years ago

Apart from the console business, Sony can be compared with Philips. In the 90's and 00's both companies operated within the same markets (consumer electronics, pc's). Philips sold off it's tv business last year and is refocussing on different parts of the market (personal healthcare and stuff).

Sony will follow suit. It will keep on restructuring and slimming down. Let's hope the console and phone divisions don't suffer from this.

@spekkeh But you could argue that mobile and tablet games brought gaming to people who didn't play previously. While these games are known to us, other people might have never heard of Zelda.

"Too many loopholes" prompt Ouya Free the Games Fund rule change

oupe

5 years ago

Sold my Ouya yesterday for €90,- bought it on the 1st of august for €130,- (it's not officially available in the Netherlands)
Interest in this little machine is dropping fast (+it's perceived value :P)and the general concensus here is that the company will be gone within a year.

On paper it's still a great idea but the games were mostly meh so I kept playing games on my Android phone and iPad. The open hardware/software part was done very bad though, you have to jump through all kinds of hoops to get stuff done like installing bootloaders, sideloading, etc. On top of that DTS passthrough is broken. A Raspberry Pi works better in almost every aspect(except for the Android/gaming part of course)

Edit: @Achtungenglander
Theoretically you could play mouse/keyboard games on an Ouya without problems, it detects my wireless keyboard and mouse flawlessly.

Shooting people in games, fine. I've been doing this forever. Torturing people? I do not hope this becomes a trend. Just because it's a 'mature' theme doesn't mean I want to see it in a game.

This is a slippery slope. Pedophilia? Also a mature theme. Abuse? Also a mature theme. Torture fits right in this list.

You are absolutely right but I can imagine why a company would have this vision. The idea is very enticing, having a phone and a pc and a console that have the same UI's would potentially cause a huge ecosystem lock in / grand user experience. On top of this you could build your cross platform services. I still think the idea is awesome but apparently it doesn't work like this.

Too bad really. Not because of MS or whatever brand but there's no company in the world that ever attempted to deliver such an experience.

Amazon reportedly set to launch Android video game console - and it may be core focused

oupe

5 years ago

First of all: Android will not be able to compete with Xbone and PS4 in terms of graphics/immersion for the next few years.

But: I wouldn't be so quick to write it off. I've got an Ouya and while a lot of things can be said about the controller and the software library, it basicly works and it will be interesting to see what happens when games like Infinty Blade and Minecraft are released on these kind of platforms.

As for core, for many moons I played a lot on C64, Gameboy, Nes, Snes, MD, Amiga, PC, 3DS, 360 and PS3. This might actually mean I'm core but I also buy games for Android and iOS. I like the smaller pick up and play games, they allow me to have some fun without investing a lot of hours in full feature games (that are without a doubt more compelling and fullfilling)

So, I think it's wise for companies to experiment with these kind of consoles. The game market is incredibly segmented.

I like batteries as well. They cost next to nothing and can be replaced at any moment. The PS3 route does not work for me because I only use my ps3 once every two months, in that time the battery in the controller has drained itself.

So my current strategy is to keep my (blinking) dualshocks connected to my 360 all the time... I'd rather have batteries.
