Wednesday Chat, November 20


It's Wednesday and now the initial impressions of the Xbox One are out in the open. So what do you think?

The general consensus seems to be that much like the PS4, the console will be fantastic in the future, but for now it feels a little unfinished. There are glimpses of brilliance there, but the features promised are still a while away.

On the bright side, there is always the games which you can play now.

So give us your thoughts, Let's Chat!

Got the email today that my ps4 has entered processing stage :D does that mean i'll be getting it on release? I think both consoles will excel as they both need to feed off each other.

Got my email as well Joe (9 days). Looking at both systems reviews, they all generally say the same thing - close, but not quite there yet

Think I did the right thing saving my money, neither look particularly great right now and have no must have games really. Maybe in a year or so they might be more appealing, in the meantime I'm happy sticking with Nintendo for all the great games they've got on the horizon.

I'm still looking forward to launch day but more for the gathering I'm getting together than the console in and of itself. Still, I'm hoping that the lowering of expectations will facilitate in being blown away when I do boot the sexy little beast up for the first time next Friday.

Mainly due to the lack of games at the moment and seeing all the fanboy wars has taken its toll on me. Main thing I am looking forward to is Infamous Second Son.

I agree with you there about all the fanboys "mines better than yours" crap. One of the first games I can't wait to play is Resogun - R-type for the 21st century

With Bubba on this one, can't wait to get my hands on that brand new hardware. Got a few friends also getting Killzone SF which should be fun, especially looking forward to the new 24 player TDM. Think about it this way Bindiana, its probably a good thing it doesn't have a whole bunch of games to begin with as you probably still have games to get through on your PS3, I know *I do, my PS3 still has a fair bit of mileage left on it. Tearaway out this week too :)

i've been trying to keep neutral on the whole next gen thing, and thought the PS4 games looked good for release, but after them dropping in the US... i feel they kinda don't deliver what they promised. and im hoping that the xbone games do, at least they did at eurogamer in my opinion. but we shall see on friday!

I have no idea, but that would rule out a tv clip, Mine is going on top of my fireplace. It can be angled though aswell. So I guess it'll be a case of see what works best for individuals set-up.

Well what can you say, PS4 as it stands today, unable to play MP3, CD or 3D Blueray discs, according to Sony! A real media playing console! NOT! LMAO!! Now with Titanfall NOT going to the PS4 aswell; only the most awaited game for 2014, what can I say? I have both PS3 & Xbox 360 and I can say that the 360 is the better console & has the better controller. I think there's no contest in next gen.... XboxONE wins this battle of the giant's!

The Order is on order for me too. I fell out with Dragon Age 10 minutes in to the 2nd one. Which is a shame as I adored the first one. As to what I'd do in a zombie apocalypse, country side. Somewhere where I can grow food and with wide visible open spaces away from urban areas. The only reason I think your boat idea is daft, Joe, is what if it doesn't "pass". If zombies live for months/years you're going to die on that boat long before they do

I personally don't *get* the fan boy arguments. I have both consoles and whilst I do prefer one over the other, to argue so heatedly over which is better is like arguing over whose favourite colour is the best (it's blue btw).

Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 3 years ago
I've never understood the playground fanboyism either. I like both systems. I personally want a more focused games console (PS4), I don't need a multimedia hub (XBO). If it was the other way round, so would my choice. Oh, you're both wrong, the best colour is Black
RTLF's avatar
RTLF 3 years ago
@Aubsd he was simply poking fun at your antagonistic comments is all, your trolling is the reason most people here are ignoring you. @Steersy If you have PS plus(you'll need it for PS4 online anyway) you can download Gravity Rush and Uncharted(both really great games) for free as well as all the other games they give for free on a monthly basis. Other than that, Killzone Mercenary, Tearaway(out on friday), Soul Sacrifice, Dragon's Crown, Persona 4 Golden - all awesome games... hope that helps
Kaysar's avatar
Kaysar 3 years ago
How can you like green? Blue clearly has all the best attributes. And black is merely the absence of colour, so it's like so rubbish it can't even compete with green (which is the colour of snot. Says all you need to know)
Aubsd's avatar

Everyone has their own interpretations on what makes great games system. I've been Use systems way back when we had to write our own code for the zx81; hell I bet most of you would have trouble doing that for a modern system. So yes, I can be objective in what I say. Preferences are just that, what YOU prefer. So the choice is yours, Wii, PS4 or XboxONE. All the systems have benefits compared to its rival otherwise WE as consumers would be stuffed with a monopoly by 1 manufacturer; which I think we would all agree would be bad as competition is BEST for us!! WHAT DO YOU THINK???

@BubbaJai I play Don't Starve on PC, it's great fun. Only recently started, but from what I can tell, the map is HUGE. I'm interested to see if they bring anything new to the PS4 version though.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 3 years ago
@RTLF - Thanks for that, I was thinking of getting a Vita for remote play too. I'll bear those games in mind. @Daddy - Cheers. Will definitely download that then. If you don't survive the night, does the game restart from day 1 or from the last day you got to before you died?

Don't starve is great. The maps are random every time and you can unlock new characters with special abilities as well.

Xbox ONE launch looks to be the best console launch ever. I have never gotten so many games on day one before, and I will have more games on Xbox ONE than I have for Wii U and the Wii U has been out a year now, and before the PS4 and Xbox ONE were announced I was going to ignore next gen and keep to PC and Wii U. Developers have seriously let the Wii U down, and cancelling making games for it by viewing sales from late releases that people already have on Xbox 360, PS3 or even the original Wii eg NFS Rivals. They should have made the decision to stop making games for Wii U if NFS Rivals failed. Nintendo are doing good bundles though, for this year, but is probably too late now.
Peeph's avatar

@TONY - If you're buying more Xbox One games at launch than you have Wii U games after a year of being out then..... where have you been? New Super Mario/Luigi U, Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101, Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut, Game & Wario, Lego City Undercover, Nintendo Land, Scribblenauts Unlimited, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD. These all make the Xbox One launch line-up look a little.... flat for me.
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 3 years ago
New Super Mario U is also on Wii but will get one day when bored and not spending money on 360/Xbox ONE/PS3/PC, have not gotten Pikmin 3 yet as still not played 1 and 2, so getting a 3rd is pointless until then, Wonderful 101 looks OK but have preferred other games on Xbox 360 / PS3, Deus Ex already got on Xbox 360 and PC, I do intend getting it on Wii U at some point but Xbox ONE/360/PS3/PC games have taken priority, already got Windwaker on Gamecube so not a priority. I have Lego City Undercover, and the others not my cup of tea. I do not think Nintendo games are for me any more, mostly because they are just rehashing old stuff and putting on the latest consoles which I can still play on my older Nintendo consoles, and with the N64 and Gamecube it had more 3rd party support.
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 3 years ago
@Zombie - Cheers. That's 2 endorsements for Don't Starve. Now upgraded to a must have ... lol. If my understanding is right, Each time you fail to survive, you start a new random map? I know it saves after each day/night cycle to continue
RTLF's avatar
RTLF 3 years ago
@BubbaJai I know where you're coming from as I felt *exactly* the same when I first looked at it, looks a little uninspiring from the screenshots etc. but there's a reason it was shortlisted for game of the year at the Golden Joystiq awards and you'll understand when you play it, brutal gameplay and a much plaudited soundtrack make it an absolute bargain at £6. A must have for the vita no question
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar

They have updated Dont starve quite a bit as well, if you have an ok PC/laptop it should run ok and be possibly cheaper than the PS4 version. I prefer starting over when you die, also words of wisdom do not set up camp near pigs I learned that the hard way also don't expect to survive long when you first start I think I died my first night.
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 3 years ago
My logic is not flawed - if anybody's logic is flawed it is EA and Ubisoft in lowering support for the Wii U following low sales on games released after the other consoles got it first - they can not expect people to keep buying duplicate games. The Wii U just has not been getting games that take my fancy, and why spend more money getting Deus Ex and Wind Waker when I have already got them, and there are other games I want on the other consoles. If Deus Ex released alongside Xbox 360 and PS3, then getting the Wii U version would be a no brainer. If Zelda was a new game than a remake, then it would trump any game on Xbox 360 or PS3. If NFS Rivals was releasing on Wii U, then I would have gotten that, and may not have needed a Xbox ONE. I agree with what RTLF said in the other topic (and basically what I was saying there), and that Nintendo are taking steps backwards and not progressing forward, which Xbox ONE and PS4 (which I have no current interest in at all atrn) are, plus (3rd party) developers are dropping support for the Wii U, making getting a Xbox ONE (or a PS4) a necessity
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston's avatar
Dave 'BubbaJai' Aston 3 years ago
I believe Don't Starve may be a PS+ game on (or around) launch. Tip I saw was build a camp around Beefalo, plenty of protection and manure for your crops. So do you keep everything your character has built up when you die?

It's odd, I have an Xbox One coming on friday, and I basically have three games I probably wouldn't have got if they'd been 360 games. I don't regret the purchase, but I am still wondering if I will get the value out of it this year, and if I should have waited. Time will tell I suppose. Oddly I just got hooked by the Minecraft bug, so if the Xbox One version turns up sooner than later, it may end up being a way for me to have larger Minecraft maps for £400. :D Of course come my birthday in March, Titanfall will be about to drop and things will be looking up, I'm sure Halo whispers (the main reason I continued with the xbox as my first choice machine) will be floating around as well. PS4 might grab me eventually, its purely down to an exclusive turning up I can't turn down, but so far one hasn't appeared, not even in the launch period/early 2014 section. If Koei finally makes Dynasty Warriors 9 PS4 exclusive that would do it, but for the time being at least my mindset is Xbone bound. Its odd as well, up until last edition I had every new machine as it came out, but this will the second console generation where I have intially at least skipped Sony's machine.
