    Speculatively, where would Microsoft go without a successful 3rd generation console? Windows 8 doesn't seem to be pulling any slack either.

    Can MS survive on corporate licenses?

    Survive? Yes. Keep their shareholders happy? No.

    I know Sony hasn't been doing all that well lately, either, but at least they have their fingers in more than two things.

    Two in the pink, one in the stink?

    I think they put more fingers in microsoft than that!

    EDIT: that's an awkward totp.

    They did completely blow off the Vita for a second year running. Most people didn't notice or care but they basically only announced what, 2 new ports and that the games they announced last summer would come out this year.

    That's pretty annoying, but my vita will be used primarily for remote play going forward. That's the best feature of the WiiU, and to have it with PS4 games is going to be incredible.

    I don't think Microsoft is going to have much of a response to this. The heart of the third generation curse is hubris. Microsoft is going to keep living it up; getting high off the smell of their own shit; completely oblivious to the fact Sony is sitting right there, suspiciously not drinking anything, while wearing full chainmail.

    By the time they see the knife. It'll be too late.

    Also, Destiny looked fucking incredible. I'm not a huge FPS fan, nor am I that into online gaming, but my god that looked fantastic. A type of game I've never seen before. It was beautiful and unique. I still haven't bought PS+ but that might be the game that gets me on board. I've bought Xbox Live in the past.

    Also, even if Microsoft did change it's tune it doesn't matter to me at all.

    You can tell from how Sony presented the no DRM thing they saw how people were reacting to MS. Sure Sony considered it, but they saw the reaction and said "nope".

    MS stayed the course, and much like the titanic, steering away at the last possible second doesn't do fuck all for me. You made your bed MS. Wallow in it.

    See, all this Vita unlove, but holy crap I already have enough games I've not finished. Also I'm getting Ys, and that dragon crown game, and holy shit Atelier Meruru+. Like, literally, it is a machine sculpted for my geeky tendencies.

    TSR, you might want to look into Borderlands. It's not the same thing but it's somewhat similar.

    Oh I played Boarderlands, I'm talking about the way the game flowed from one game type to another. It was brilliant. A single campaign made up of multiple multiplayer segments. It was a great evolution of everything Bungie has done for years with multiplayer. It didn't look like any other FPS.

    It was super refreshing.

    Destiny gave off a real strong "HaloLands Online" vibe.

    FUCK YES! I've gotten plenty of use out of the PS3's no region lock via PSN.

    No region locking is huge.

    I would've jumped at backwards compatibility, but this works just as well for me.

    Was it just me or did it look like guns in Destiny could level up? It looked like that guy checked out the stats on his new gun and it had skills attached to it and stuff.

    Or was that just his player skills?

    I did notice it was moddable. Would be cool if guns leveled with use along with the player.

    The interface certainly made it look like the guns level up.

    Yeah, I think it deserves most of the credit for Demon's Souls getting as popular as it did. Without it, I doubt we'd have Dark Souls.

    Not to mention it's awesome to get around all the stupid PAL localisation delays.

    Okay so here's one thing I'm curious about, why do they make them the same price in dollars and euros. Aren't euros worth more than American dollars? So, having them both be 500 or 400 dollars and 500 or 400 euros, make them more expensive in Europe for no apparent reason other than having the same number?

    There's definitely some glee that Sony came out swinging at MS on things that bothered a lot of folk here. It's nice to see that get shut down, and a little (slightly malicious) carnival seems to be in order.

    Most of it is far from irrational, given the clusterfuck that the One is turning out to be.

    I feel compelled to point out I never bought a PS2 or PS3, but have a 360 right next to me (only have a PS1 because I bought it off a friend for cheap).

    Microsoft generated a ton of ill-will with this DRM shenanigans, and only have themselves to blame for it.

    Also, I'm happy as fuck Sony didn't follow MS and make this DRM thing the normal. Now there is a clear choice, and all these Pre-orders (assuming it's not just this forum, and a I bet it isn't) is going to send a clear message of what the people want.

    E3 couldn't have gone better, and Nintendo hasn't even said a word yet.

    I don't hate Microsoft, I just cant help but laugh at the curbstomping they just got from Sony.

    I mean, come on! That shit that Sony pulled was fucking epic, no matter what console you're planning on buying or not buying.

    It's not hate, it's just good old fashioned harmless schadenfreude :lol:

    I don't take any glee from watching my favourite console manufacturer completely crash and burn with the typical third console curse.

    But I am really god damn happy Sony showed some serious sanity in providing a better option for me to choose.

    Doesn't the Eurozone use a Value Added Tax that is factored into the price of goods?

    Traditionally this forum has always leaned towards the 360 over PS3. At least that's how it seems going from how popular PS3 exclusive threads are versus 360, also given how on multiplat games there are usually more 360 gamers. The amount of "LOL Sony"'ing that has gone on is incredible, so I would certainly say it's not traditionally anti-microsoft.

    Yep, I don't have a ps3, I owned both editions of zune, I want a windows phone and have been more than a little anti Sony in the past for exactly the same sort of arrogance that Microsoft seems to be exuding here. Its their assumption that because they did so well last time, they can shovel us something and we will just take that pile none the wiser. It made me dislike Sony at the 600 price point and its making me dislike Microsoft here with all their shenanigans.

    I don't think its anti MS so much as anti all of the shit they are doing.

    Well, now, lets not kid ourselves.

    Both companies are doing it for the $$$, they just took different 'sides' in the gamble on where they'll get the most money. And from our perspective, Sony chose wisely.

    Yeah, and hopefully this might even make Microsoft back off on some of the bullshit they've been pulling. I for one want to play Halo 5, Ryse, and other cool games I saw as being XBone exclusives, I just don't want to deal with all of their DRM bullshit, and I'm definitely not spending 500$ on it.

    It's A LOT worse elsewhere on the net.

    It's actually a refreshing change of pace to come here and see people having an actual discussion on the two consoles rather than just hargle bargle blasting MS with asinine comments. On other gaming blogs I visit, any stories to do with MS lately just get buried in hate. Clicking on the comment section is a speaker box of me too's trying to one up each other with witty bullshit.

    Personally, I was still in the MS camp until the 24 hour check in news dropped. A part of me still hopes MS can somehow salvage the next gen by backing out on their draconian usage restrictions.

    I really don't want to spend another generation with the Dual Shock, but MS has forced me into that position.
