Tuesday Chat, E3 Week, June 11


There is absolutely tons to talk about today following the conferences last night. So what do you think?

Did Sony easily win it, or did Microsoft have some redeeming features. Are you happy with the prices of both consoles. What about the third party studios? What did you think of them?

My favourite moment? This..


Loads to say, Let's chat!

But Shep. it doesn't. You have a choice, with Xbox One, you don't have a choice, you need the camera.

Meh, neither really grabbing me, MS has a slight edge for me with Dead Rising, but I'm not convinced it will be totally exclusive.

Sony won on the console front havent seen the ps4 cionference but what I have heard it seems microsoft may have won on the games side. Sony have done the right thing putting the eye as an extra if you want it. Microsfts downfall could be the kinect. They say you have to have it with every console but did not show 1 kinect game yesterday which just left me thinking why do I have to have Kinect.

Fair enough Dynamite as i said havent seen the sony conference so dont know what was shown. I was a bit meh about the microsofts games dead rising looked good liked the sound of D4 but only showed a 10 second trailer Sunset overdrive could be good if they use there ratchet expertise.

Xbox One all the way for me! Dead Rising 3, Titan Fall, New Halo. Never mind the fact that I am carrying over years of hard worked achievements and Gamer score! Plus the pad feels so much better in your hands! I only use my PS3 as a Bluray player now, soon I won't even need it for that! :-)

I watched all media briefings live, except for Sony's. I watched it this morning (actually I just finished watching it, nothing to do at work this morning :D ). Well, I must say, I wasn't impressed by the briefings. I liked Division (the graphics). I liked Black Flag gameplay shown at Sony's presentations. I liked the concept of Ryse, but there were too many quick time events. Also wasn't the teaser displaying that Ryse will be a Kinect game? I guess they figured out that it would be better to make it a standard controller based game. EA's media briefing was the worst of all in my opinion. Microsoft delivered a lot of games. I am a bit puzzled about the Halo announcement. They didn't mention that it was Halo 5. We did see a Promethean like machine in the teaser though. Also the Xbox 360 Super Slim. Really? I like the Slim more. I like that for the gold members there are games that are free (2 games a month), but if you read carefully you will notice that the offer is valid until One releases. So, I think that it is more or less a marketing trick. Another topic is Sony's announcement for PS+. If I understood correctly only PS+ members will be able to play online multiplayer. So, more or less the same as Xbox LIVE gold. And there is the price of course. $499 = 499 EUR for the xbox (wow, when the US dollar and the Euro are the same, but after all this is going on for a while), and $399 = 399 EUR for the PS4. Of course the Xbox contains the Kinect, and the PS3 doesn't contain other accessory. And yes, the PS4 is not always online, and supports used games. But you can share the game you bought for your one with up to 10 members of your family (you can't play in the same time with them though). Also if you buy a disc based game, you also own it digitally (which is great, in case of scratched discs). I wouldn't pick a clear winner just yet. I am not getting a next-gen console on day one. I will wait a little bit and decide which console is better.

Can anyone confirm if Assassins Creed Black Flag kept lagging a few times when the guy was playing on PS4, during Sony's presentation? I couldn't tell if it was the stream freezing due to my rubbish internet connection or the demo. Probably just my shit internet connection.
ZdravkoN's avatar
ZdravkoN 3 years ago
It wasn't the stream. There was a moment when the dude playing the game became nervous because of the lag. It is understandable because the game is still in development.

I'll only upset about two things, I'll be getting a PS4 that means i won't get dead rising 3 and the Spark thing.

The best announcements at the Sony event (TES Online for consoles) are multiplat. None of their exclusives are grabbing me, whereas Microsoft have Ryse, Titanfall and Project Spark that look really fun. I'll be getting both consoles because eventually PS4 will have exclusive games I like such as Yakuza but for launch I think I have to go XBO. I prefer the controller, XBO will have dedicated game servers so be better for online and I kind of want to play with the new kinect. I've never played with a kinect before as I wouldn't be able to use the original one in my house so it's exciting for me really. So yeah, getting both but not both at launch.

I read a news report that Ryse was more fun to watch than play. Also on the Dead Rising front it looked like they took the fun out of it and made it into a generic brown zombie game.

The worst thing about Dead Rising was that all you have to do was stand on a car top, and you were safe.

The only games the Microsoft have the interest me are D4,Overstrike....wait I mean Sunset Overdrive and Spark but I would need a second device to fully enjoy Spark so i'm not sold

Kinda glad it's xboner exclusive, I have no problem with missing out on Dead Boring. The biggest issue with some of the games that look fun on the xboner is that they aren't CoD and will lose the community after the first year, as fun as Spark looks how quickly did Spore die out?
Bindiana's avatar

I thought Ryse did look good but when I saw the slowness of the combat and the the huge amount of quicktime events left me disappointed does look like a kinect game that has been converted to controller.
Johno Muller's avatar
Johno Muller 3 years ago
Ryse was a kinect game, I think it was at E3 in 2011? maybe 2012 for 360
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 3 years ago
Yeah I know Johno was just saying it kinda showed that it was originally a kinect game and they have tried to convert it to play with a control pad.

I'd only enjoy Spark playing someone elses game. I also liked the look of Max's Brother Solver game thing. Looked enjoyable.

That used game video sums up Sony's attitude to Microsoft's new Anti-consumer policy's, basically a big "Up Yours Microsoft"

Spark is coming to PC so I'll just get that version. Apparently Killer Instinct is made by the same guys who made such classics like Green Lantern, Battleship and GI Joe. And will be a free to play game... Digital Only. You get 1 character and have to buy the rest. DERP DERP DERP MICROSOFT. DERP DERP DERP.

It's probably the most lopsided conference war in a few years. MS were shat on from a tremendous height. Sony didn't just come out and show why the PS4 was the better machine (no one talked to the console, showed a few great titles from big and indie studios) but they actually answered questions that we wanted/needed answering. MS talking around and ignoring the issues at hand just made them look worse. Don't count MS out yet. They will learn from their mistakes and they may come back in a year or two and be the console to own!

It looks like a horrible attempt at breaking into the fighter genre. It's not like FPS where you can release a mediocre game and get away with it, even trusted series' like Mortal Kombat get punished for their mistakes.
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 3 years ago
Fighting games have to be the hardest to break out in really. You have to have characters people recognise, and a good fighting system on top of that too.

I actually preferred the games that MS showed, but ultimately all Sony needed to do was show the price and that they support game sharing, etc. I think it will be enough to 'win' the console war in terms of sales. I personally still have a preference for Xbox One but it will depend largely on what my friends do. I can't help but think that for many people it was too little, too late from MS - the damage had already been done. IF they turned around and reversed the game sharing and 24 hour connect thing, then we could have a more even console war though.

Fable III is free for June. This is officially announced in the xbox news portal. So, it is not a glitch (although it looks like one :D )
Johno Muller's avatar

What games did MS show, not including multiplats?
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
The thing is that on the topic of price, most of us here don't care since we will get whatever one we want and the eventually both but think about a mother looking for one of the "New and Happening" console for little Johnny (You know Microsoft's real target) The mother is going to buy what ever is cheaper, no doubt (Unless the kid is a spoiled brat)

Sunset Overdrive and D4

Then surely by that logic the Wii U will sell better in that aspect?

And it's not about the price, because most parents will hear their kid say I want an Xbox one and buy that. Walk into Tesco on launch or just before christmas and go to the counter and say "Do you have any xboxes in stock?" the cashier will then sell them the console, a ridiculous price payment plan extended warranty and the library of games because they are on offer of £5 off with every top 10 game.

My xbox games library and achievements list is over 165 games... so xbox is not in my best interest. Some people have less than a tenth of that. I'll let you lot guess which 16 games they might be.

Halo 3, Halo ODST, Halo Reach, Halo 4. Left out Anniversary and Wars (Mainstream didn't like Wars but I loved it)

Reach multiplayer is almost dead now, Halo 3 is still going strong. I think all the maps are free now so that probably has something to do with it.

Thanks for the info Johno, just had a look. But they haven't put a price up though, hoping Shopto put some bundles up soon so I know exactly how much I know I'm going to spend on PS4 bundle.
