Hi Plat. Over the course of the next few hours we'll be uploading summaries of the major conferences, with details of all games covered in them.

Cheers mate, Though I have noticed that all the links have been posted to the same forum so I can scan that rather than getting a bit lost on the main page.

Not really had much time to keep up tbh, work all day then im fucked by the time I get home, will have to try and catch up at the weekend.

Cheers Wheaton.

Re: Which will you buy?

Xbox One then PS4. Not that many PS4 exclusive games I want to play really apart from GT

The whole used game thing... both consoles have it in place (makes me think the big 3rd party ones wanted a slice especially after EA called off the redemption code system)

Re: Which will you buy?

PS4 doesnt have it in place, my understanding with the PS4 is used games are as it is now, Buy it sell it trade it do whatever you want, however devs (EA) can restrict MP access on second hand games which will require a online pass.

Second hand games restriction is far far away from the craziness on the Xbone One.

He went on to say "the average internet connection is on almost all of the time. People like to imagine it isn't." That's great, go tell people without the internet that the average connection works just fine.

It was unbelievable. I was expecting damage control!
This is the interview.


I almost want to buy a PS4 just out of spite now.

Both have it in place if they wished to use it, just to different lengths

They can restrict it, it's up to the 3rd parties. EA abandoning project $10 means nothing, gamers get pissed having to pay extra for a feature on a used game that gets turned off soon after

Re: Which will you buy?

XB One looks a lot better now!

MS have defiantly done the right thing here, fair play to them there, I wonder if the damage has already been done though?

Now that pre order cheevo / challenge, hmm....

I'm in two minds about it.

In one sense, I like that they've done what the customer wanted and said "fair play, we're listen to our demographic". It's commendable that they backed down. Their demographic doesn't like change and wants to stay as is.

On the other hand, this could have been the start of something a lot bigger and the stepping stone that the console market needed to get into the digital distribution for the mainstream. They also bowed to peer pressure.

I just don't know.

Re: Which will you buy?

I think it's a good thing they did it. It's a shame that the license sharing isn't available for people who wanted it, but losing it is far better than the draconian "check in with me daily or I WILL END YOUR FAMILY" bullshit. In fact, having spent 4 of the last 7 days without the internet due to my U-Verse gateway deciding to join the Motherboard in the Sky, I was reminded of why I found Microsoft so infuriatingly and offensively blasť when they said "the average connection is always on people are imagining herpy derpy diggerpy derr."

With That Said.

License transfers shouldn't be *that* hard to do. I can't understand why I can't be online on the Xbox and send the license that way. Then, when the recipient logs on, they can accept the license and download the game themselves.

That way the key moments (sending and receiving) are carried out online without having to do a daily bloody check-in.

I'd heard quite a bit that this 'Family Sharing' was more like 'Family Demo-ing' in that they could only play the game for about an hour, before being asked to purchase it if they wanted to continue.

Not sure if it was true, or a sneaky ploy to make us feel less bad about losing it. Never found any confirmed sources for it.
