Said it in another thread just now, but I've been converted. Not so much Sony winning me over, more Microsoft pushing me away.

NBA 2K14 reveal was sweet, and only pre-alpha too, was impressive.

I can only assume the NBA Live 14 gameplay will be horrible, but honestly? Their little reveal trailer didn't actually look bad graphics wise. Though knowing them, it's probably no more than a cinematic trailer. Either way, I think they've actually fixed the ridiculously small lettering and number on the back of the jerseys.

It's crazy how " being able to play used games" seems like an extra feature now with physical copies. It should simply be there.
Me as well, it's crazy sneaky the only mention about it we've had so far is a couple of small lines of text in a small video mocking Microsoft. I'm not quite alright with it myself, I think they're just doing it out of greed. They had their model, which users liked and which separated them from the competition. They released an optional PS+ (or whatever the name is), which is quite successful. Why change it now and make everyone pay? I don't use online nearly enough to justify paying a subscription, and I'm sure there are many other like me. They are going to make us pay for a service we will barely use, or be rid of our ability to play online. It doesn't feel right to me at all. Furthermore, I can stress enough how badly we Europeans are getting screwed with the price. PS4 will cost the equivalent of 300 EUR in the US, and we'll have to pay 400 EUR here. I like most things I've seen about the device so far, but these two points really upset me.

Isn't the $399 ex. VAT in the US, while the €399 is inc. VAT in Europe?

Of course, we are still getting screwed, but the US equivalence is €360, not €300.

Oh I didn't think of the taxes, my bad. They don't have VAT in the US, do they? My understanding is they have sales taxes, and those vary from state to state. However, 400 USD is 301 EUR at today's exchange rate.

Think about it like this: The console is $399, you get tons of games to go along with the subscription, and keeping servers up for games isn't cheap. I have no problem paying as long as it is fluid and non-buggy.

Well yes, I guess I will have to bite the bullet eventually. I abandoned PC gaming in favor of PS a long time ago, and I really don't feel like going back to it.

is wii u still not selling too well? (although i heard wii u sales spiked up after xbox one announcement lol)
i wonder if nintendo will ever have to go down the path of sega.. and not develop a console. obviously keep making handhelds... but become a sole video game developer for consoles.
wishful thinking i guess...


man if i could play some bad ass nintendo games on a ps4... damn id be a happy camper :p

You feel bad for a billion dollar company?

Really I feel bad for everyone who works under Ballmer and what he's turned that company into. In probably the next decade they won't even be profitable anymore.

Mildly bummed by Nintendo's presser, but oh well. Wii U is still a fun device, and overall I can't really complain about buying one except lack of games but those are coming.
