Friday Chat, October 4


It's six weeks until PS4 lands in the US, while two weeks later we'll be playing it here in the UK. In between the US and UK launch, the Xbox One arrives, giving gamers a hard choice when it comes to what console to choose.

So have you made up your mind. Will Xbox One or PS4 win your cash. Has the release difference between the two (one week) made up your mind? Are you just desperate for your new console to arrive?

Also, what games have you pre-ordered to go with your new system? We'd love too see what the most popular pre-order is amongst our readers. It's exciting stuff.

Let's Chat!

Not bothering, I already have a next gen console.
Gloria 10 months ago
Without games there is honestly no reason to get a "next gen" console. There aren't enough quality release games I can justify paying £400-£500 for a console. The WiiU is starting to get some good games almost a year after release. I imagine the same thing will happen with the new consoles as well. I'd rather wait and get some more polished games than get the rushed release games any day. Remember Perfect Dark 0? *shudder*

Well both on pre order . Just hopefully ship to be in touch about this killzone mega pack today for the PS4, it's the end if the week boys and girls over there don't forget. My preference PS4 though

Im going to bite the bullet and get both. Always was going to get both at somepoint and i dont see the price drops in the first year or so, so im gettng both while theres mega bundles and day one edition goodness to be had.

I went for the PS4 in the end because of the great 1st party games the PS3 had. Keeping the faith so to speak. I can't wait to get my hands on the PS4. I have decided not to do the upgrade route and just wait it out and get the games just for PS4 instead. I'm curious to see which game is the most popular on launch though.
Spear 25 10 months ago
I think killzone will be one if not the most impressive game graphically out of all launch titles.its by first party studio and is built for ps4.all the cross gen games won't be as impressive as they are basically upscaled ports.
Mangaman1 10 months ago
I have gone for PS4 what Microsoft originally announced left a bad taste in my mouth not been too impressed since the launch conference when they decided to concentrate on TV and stuff that wouldnt really translate over here like the NFl stuff. Then when thinking about it I prefer the sony exclusives such as Uncharted, God of War, Infamous and even stuff like everybodys golf. On the microsoft side the only exclusive I really enjoyed was the gears series and no Gears game has been announced so far for it.
Bindiana 10 months ago
see now ive been strongly going with the Xbox One, i was swaying in my thoughts recently until eurogamer, where i played both, and the xbox trumped the PS4 with what was on show.

In other news: I have Wind Waker Ganon Edition but no Wii U.
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Haha how did that happen Nox?
Bindiana 10 months ago
One word: Zavvi
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Genius now using logic I would of thought they both would be in the same box because you order the Zelda Bundle console didnt you?
Bindiana 10 months ago
Never mind, you can polish your statue whilst you wait ;)
Gloria 10 months ago
Wow, just looked at the tracking number and it seems Yodal are going to delivery today but it's Yodal so I'm really sceptical
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Got the Ganon Edition from Game and the Zelda Wii U from Zavvi (Need that Zelda Gamepad to go with my Zelda Wiimote) for a grand total of £299.98
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Problem is that I have two copy's of Wind Waker now. Might just sell my boxed copy if there is nothing special about it on Ebay and Re-buy it when it's cheaper
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Good price for both of them managed to order just the game yesterday for £30 was happy with that hopefully come tomorrow.
Bindiana 10 months ago
@Bindiana, where did you get it from for £30?
Spear 25 10 months ago
@ spear someone on ebay it was £32 with postage they only had 6 copies and they went pretty fast.
Bindiana 10 months ago
Still waiting for my copy, bloody postman.
Gloria 10 months ago

Mangaman1 10 months ago
I need to have limited edition anything, problem with collecting stuff. If it wasn't for the Wii U I would of got one of the X&Y consoles.PS: Last I was looking on Ebay and the Pika3DSXL was going for over £300
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
I have a thing for collectors edition of games was looking the other day and thought I may have a few too many so may look to sell a few soon just to free up some space.
Bindiana 10 months ago
Anything I might be interested in?
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Tbh I think I need to sell a few as well
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago

Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
"Your parcel from TheHutGroup is on its way and is out for delivery today. It will be delivered by 9.00pm. " WTF, a bit late don't you think Yodel
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Well is there anything you looking for PS3 and Xbox 360 wise? I have stuff like the Uncharted 3 collectors edition as well as the Pandoaras box god of war have Batman Arkham Asylum collectors edition with the pathetic batarang or whatever it was.
Bindiana 10 months ago
The only two I can think of that I need to finish the collection are the Mass Effect 1 Collectors Edition and the Agarest 1 Collectors Edition. Anyhoo give me a heads up when you go to sell them
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
I am pretty sure I have mass effect 1 Collectors edition on xbox 360. I cant remember if I have Agarest 1 Collectors Edition I know I have the 2nd one not sure of the first.
Bindiana 10 months ago
I have the Mass Effect 2 and 3 CE & the Agarest 0 and 2 CE
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
See thats how many I have I have no idea what I have or not. Well happy to sell the Mass effect collectors edition. I will check when I get home for you Nox if you like?
Bindiana 10 months ago
I'm not bothered if I got it anymore anyway but it would be nice to have, needless to say I won't have any money to waste for a bit
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
so my Zelda the windwaker pre order never turned up with todays mail , think I will have to start putting the recorded delivery option down as this is starting to happen to me more ofen than I would like, at least then I would get some money back, was so looking forward to a go of Zelda today too
jay.hamilton 10 months ago
Happy to keep it back for you till a later date Nox
Bindiana 10 months ago
Nah , if you can get a good price for it then you should sell it
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
"Parcel out for deliver" "10.27" It seems like I should have it in a little bit
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Ohhh nox nox what colour are your sox?
JoeToots 10 months ago
Also on the note of collectors edition i'm considering selling my GTA collectors edition bits but keeping the steelbook/game.
JoeToots 10 months ago
Wait a bit and it will be worth a bit more
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
My Wind Waker has arrived ;)
Gloria 10 months ago
My zelda never arrived I've had it preordered for at least 5/6 months not good enough shop to....
cookie jay 10 months ago
Once it leaves the Shopto warehouse it is all Royal Mail. Gloria how does the ID's work on Wii U?
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
so you will be walking on the wind today then glorioria
JoeToots 10 months ago
your so lucky Gloria, I was so looking forward to playing but mail has been and gone, no Zelda for me
jay.hamilton 10 months ago
Create your ID Nox, no spaces alowwed, then put in your email, make up a password and that's it pretty much, as far as I remember anyway.
Gloria 10 months ago
may be joining the wii-union in the near future.
JoeToots 10 months ago
@ joe i would buy the gta baseball cap if you do sell it.
yoda soldier 10 months ago
Dont think I have set up my Wii U ID correctly yet will have to check on that. I have tried to send you a message on here Nox have no idea if it worked or not.
Bindiana 10 months ago
It worked
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Cool :)
Bindiana 10 months ago
Getting both however only getting the Xbox One due to deciding to trade in about 90% of my current gen collection. Managed to get over £600 amazon credit! Had PS4 ordered since the announcement on here, they definitely impressed me more from the get go. To be fair MS have done more in recent months but that was in response to the negative press. Hoping to hear about the Mega Bundle today, the only one out there that saves more than £5 so far!
SpartanSpur 10 months ago
Maho you are quite correct it is down to Royal Mail to deliver but when you only despatch a preorder the night before release and state 1-3 days for delivery who's at fault???? It's not hard to work out is it....
cookie jay 10 months ago
Shopto can't help it if that is when they got them or if Nintendo asked them to keep it back
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Still going to have to go with Royal Mail is at fault. I know where I live I seem to have Royal Mail come every other day instead of every day. Like this morning had a load of parcels which a lot of them should of arrived yesterday when I had none.
Bindiana 10 months ago
Mine was posted yesterday morning :)
Gloria 10 months ago
Game posted Wind Waker yesterday as well
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Even if they did have sanctions on the release is the game here NO who do I have a contract of sale with shopto not Royal Mail and they stated order before 12pm on Wednesday and we are confident you will have it for release date. So it's their fault it's not here. Plus I no many people who received the collectors edition from game on Wednesday so it was not held back. plus shop to would have had their stock from tues/weds at the very latest they more than likely got it Monday. Or last weekend. As I no game got theirs then. As I've worked in the industry for many years and no how it works. The be all and end all shop to FAILED to deliver...
cookie jay 10 months ago
Should of paid abit extra to get it sent tracked, don't shopto offer £5 credit if you dont recieve you're game on release date? so why are you complaining at a free £5 credit?
JoeToots 10 months ago
Calm down, it's only a game. Not like someone died
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Maybe he did a little inside...
JoeToots 10 months ago
It's only £5 credit if it is sent tracked
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Well he cocked up himself there it's down to his own fault then.
JoeToots 10 months ago
How can you sign if your in work?? You still wouldn't get it till sat Morning pretty pointless if you ask me but you are correct you get £5 compensation..can't be arsed no more have a good weekend all I'm of to pub to drown my sorrows...
cookie jay 10 months ago
get it sent to your works or a neighbour.
JoeToots 10 months ago
Get it sent to your work then and sign for it there.
Bindiana 10 months ago
Gonna buy a PS4 at some point but not for a while as baby due in November so badly clashes and can't justify the expense of a new console. Having said that, my boyfriend's decided he wants us to get a wii u after seeing the new trailer for super mario 3D world, so might get that for xmas as a present to ourselves and PS4 in the new year sometime...
Samka 10 months ago
Wii U would be the sensible choice over the PS4, loads more games for it.
Gloria 10 months ago
Yeah it does but the Wii U has been out since last year November and it depends on the users taste. I'm getting a PS4 when it comes because i wanted games like Knack and Infamous. Also there is going to be a new Ratchet and Clank Trilogy for the PS4 like next year. I wanted games like Sonic: Lost Worlds and Bayonetta 2 though so i will probably get a Wii U.
Light Heaven 10 months ago
Getting both but if I had to choose one I would go for the xbox one. Got my Zelda today as well.
Zombieflamingo 10 months ago
Yeah I'll definitely get both the Wii U and PS4 eventually, but can't afford both at the same time so it makes sense to go for the cheaper console which has more games I immediately want to play on it, though I imagine in the long run I'll get more play out of the PS4... my boyfriend is usually the more reserved about spending our money on shiny new things as well, so while he's keen I'm not gonna pass up the opportunity haha
Samka 10 months ago
Got my Wii U about 20 minute ago, still not set it up cos the moment I got it my Dog decided it would be fun to run outside so I was trying to catch him for the last 15 minute. Stupid mutt, I had no shoes on
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
I'll be waiting for my friends request ;)
Gloria 10 months ago
Going to be waiting a while cos I need to learn how to use the stupid thing
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Haha nox got terrorised off a dog.
JoeToots 10 months ago
Thought the 32GB ones come with a Pro controller
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
That's OK, I'll be playing Wind Waker whilst I'm waiting :)
Gloria 10 months ago
Nope Pro controller is separate nox doe you still have to do the big update with newer consoles as well?
Bindiana 10 months ago
I'm guessing no but right now I'm moving stuff around since the Wii U box is taking the place of my PS3 Box and the PS3 Box is taking the place of my Xbox Box and so on and so forth
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Yeah I am going to have that problem in November will have to decide what consoles stay on the main TV
Bindiana 10 months ago
I thought he just meant the cardboard boxes they come in.
Gloria 10 months ago
I did Gloria. Anyhoo I'm finished now (Kinda) so I'm gonna set my Wii U up now
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
I'm the same, still got all my console boxes going back to the N64.
Gloria 10 months ago
I gonna get AC4, Knack and WatchDogs for my PS4 and maybe if their is cash for it Skylanders Swap Force

Has anyone else had the problem with Wii games displaying in 4:3
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Not really placed any Wii games on Wii U apart from one VC game to see if it worked. Still waiting on that friends request Nox, what's your Nintendo Network ID?
Gloria 10 months ago
SaiyanNox., what else would it be? How long does it usually take for the Wii U to be registered on Club Nintendo?
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
No idea, shouldn't take too long.
Gloria 10 months ago
Second question: Decided I'll just sell my Wind Waker HD code on Ebay (Unless someone here has an offer) What's the Ebay policy on downloadable codes?
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Think they're OK, I've bought a few off there, but I think you have to list it as a physical item and say you'll post it to them, but you can still just email/message them the code.
Gloria 10 months ago
I'll as Bindiana for a Sellers opinion later
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
My zelda turned up today :) now I no why it was a day late it was sent using 2nd class mail??? anyone else have this issue??....
cookie jay 10 months ago
First class is 1-3 days, it's just most of the time it arrives in one day but sometimes it does take two days
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
I understand that my friend but honestly it had a 2nd class postage label on it :( Royal Mail 48hr ?? instead of 24 or first class.. Never happened before I think someone made a boo boo..... The computer despatch system had a quick relapse due to the pressure :)
cookie jay 10 months ago
Pics or it didn't happen :) J/K
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Honestly I've kept the 2 envelopes each copy was delivered in as I preordered 2 copies .how can I upload for proof any idea ?? All the stick you give me yesterday as well :( you may finally admit shopto messed up my friend :) :) I suppose there's a first for everything as I stated before I've never seen this before..
cookie jay 10 months ago
I can't remember but after the whole GTA mess I don't really seeing people complaining about Shopto
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Shopto done me a massive favour with theyre GTA mess I ended up getting it for 8499 delivered on the day and shopto ended up selling it on the day for 150 quid that was just wrong end of, as is saying youre already playing a next gen console on the Wii U perrrrleeeeease at least youve got your 3dsz sand youre pokemon x and ys to fall back on and your zelda jeeze its draining!!

Gloria 10 months ago
WTF
Loli-Nox-Tan 10 months ago
Some people just can't get their head around the idea of console generations, it's quite simple really though. I was going to make helpful analogy comparing them with people that involved me having sex with a young man, had it all typed out, but then I thought best not.
