Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Im really hoping they tighten up the sticks and give them less play in their positioning.
I have a usb xbox360 controller and I don't know how many times the quick disconnect has saved my pc. I trip over that cord all the fucking time. Going wireless would be nice.



I was really worried they would change the shape. I find the xbox360 controller works better for my hands than the ps3 controller did. Im glad to see they knew what was up with the controller.

Fuck Microsoft. Fuck them with a burning rake, and fuck anybody who buys this piece of shit.



That's the real deal.
Microsoft is also requiring that you have your kinect connected to use the system. Will they need to watch us in order for the system can work? Can I have my kinect looking at the floor and still get the system to work?

I have enough issues with cameras, drones, and satellites watching me outside my home....Why would I want more devices watching and listening to me? This is like how high end samsung tvs now have webcams in them and microphones that can watch and record the room.(I checked my samsung plasma, its one version behind when they started doing that. I lucked out)

i really dont think there is any denying the xbox 360 controller is GOAT..

only other controller i almost liked as much was the gamecube controller.

Love my Ps3, but despise the controller.

The good news is it looks like they use microusb.

but look at these triggers! The bottom ones look like they push in the whole trigger vs the 360 in which they pivoted in.
the triggers now have "magnetic" sensors, which Microsoft claims offers greater precision.

Enjoy being the only one, then.

It'll be you and a bunch of little 13 year old CoD fanboy shits who buy this horribly named, invasive piece of crap. Enjoy your online matches, i'm sure they'll be awesome.


To the rest of GR:
PC gaming doesn't sound so fucking bad now, does it?
$400 and you get a gaming PC that does 1920x1080@60FPS, and best of all, doesn't spy on your or give a shit how many people are in the room with you when you want to watch a movie.

I'd also like to take the time to point out that while the PS4 and Xshit1 have roughly the same specs, THE PS4 IS MORE POWERFUL.
Only just, but it is. An unlike the PS3 vs 360, the architecture is effectively the same and thus the PS4 will perform better.


Let's tally this up:
Generation 4 winner: Nintendo - 64
Generation 5 winner: Sony - PS2
Generation 6 winner: Microsoft - 360
Generation 7 winner: Sony - PS4

Would look forward to Gen8, but we all know that's not gonna happen. Someone will release another E.T and the market will crash and burn, hopefully to be resurrected with the Steam Box and HL3.

N64 and PS1 were very evenly matched, but my hazy memories tell me the N64 was slightly more popular, wasn't it?

It's like Genesis vs. SNES: it's extremely close but the results are clouded by fanboy opinions.

Technically, PSone won. But personally, N64 all the way. Better memories with Nintendo, but hey, your results may vary.
That 32--64 bit era was the beginning of the end. Everything after this period has been copied, reskinned, then pasted into what we're still playing today. They never tinkered with the games, they just offered a bunch of shit that made their jobs easier or made them more money, like online connectivity and DLC/Season passes.

Whoever wins, we all lose. Prepare for more of the same because you're only paying to keep up with the Joneses at this point, so congrats and welcome to the machine. Nintendo would be the only way to go but they went and fucked themselves in the head, too, with that whole "casual 80+ year old gamer" schtick.

I'm honestly looking forward to Nintendo's next handheld more than anything else. The PS4 and Xbox 1 can run apps that makes my TV take shits and burp the alphabet, big fucking deal. When my only incentive to buy either console day one is to impress my FB friends or that one guy at work my priorities need to be checked.

I'm disillusioned, not bitter. But have at it, fellas. I love gaming, not apps. When I own more ancillary add-ons on my console than actual triple-A game software, something's wrong.

Team next-gen Gameboy!

Yeah, there's almost no chance i'll be buying this new console generation, and we're certainly not alone. Look at the WiiUs sales - they're pathetic. I'm thinking it's very likely Nintendo will write the WiiU off as a failure and push out a 3DS XLi or something and focus on the handheld market, especially when the new pokemon games come out and they see they made more profit in that 1 day than the entire WiiUs sales to date.

I've made my opinion clear in the past. I, personally, cannot wait for the next video game market crash. Let's hope to god it destroys EA, Activision, Ubisoft, etc so we can start fresh.
Won't affect me, anyway. Know what happens to us PC gamers when AAA companies die?
We laugh and go back to playing our vastly superior indie and valve games.

Intel are releasing Haswell next month, which means before this new console generation comes out, we'll see cheap-ass laptops able to play modern games with decent settings. I'm really hoping this, combined with this useless console generation, will push PC gaming back up to where it should be.
A world where games are made for the PC and handhelds is a game i'd be very happy with.

Providing Nintendo stop being smarmy cunts and get rid of the region lock on the 3DS. Otherwise, fuck that noise, i'll keep playing Minecraft, Kerbal Space Program and Don't Starve.

Of course is does.. its right below the sensor pad.

The only knock against the Wii U, IMO, is that there is no hardlined ethernet port and no games ( no hardcore game).
