Killzone reviewed decent, but there is still an underlyning issue that needs to be adressed.

Are we supposed to believe that the same gaming media who:

●tries to downplay every advantage the PS4 has over the xbone; even went out of their way to claim that a 50-60% advantage in performance for the PS4 meant little, and that 1080p now doesnt matter while implying 720p on xbox is better

Who:

●tried to defend Microsoft's grotesque anti-consumer DRM and always online schemes

IS going to give a PS4 game a fair shake and review it fairly? Yeah, im not buying it one bit because im not dumb.

-The same gaming media who rushes to Microsoft's defense at every turn

-The same gaming media who tries to downplay everything Playstation

Can people not put two and two together to get four anymore? This is getting ridiculous

I was reading the IGN review of Killzone.There was a giant PAID AD for RYSE front and center in-between all the text, just distracting.

This means Microsoft paid IGN for that ad. Thats how IGN makes their money. We must understand that ad revenue is how game sites operate. It starts getting into "bribing territory." IGN now "decides" to display a PAID FOR AD of RYSE all over their review of Killzone. How much more blatant can it get? Did the review of Killzone go down a point or half a point as a result of? Very serious question to ponder or ask.

Gamespot and Eurogamer gave Killzone a 7. Joystick and Kotoku panned it. Polygon gave it a 5 which is just insane. But read those "reviews" too. It was just blatant hate, and double standards - criticisms against Killzone that other FPS are much more guilty of yet are never called out on for (*cough* Call of Duty/Battlefield/Halo 4 *cough*) When you look how much effort went into making Killzone, its sad to see how unfailry Guerilla Games is getting treated due to political BS in the gaming media. Makes you sick in the stomach

(BTW Polygon has already been exposed. They were FUNDED by Microsoft and have recieved money from them many times)

Then there is the way Knack is being panned for something its NOT. It was meant to be a simple game to enjoy with your kids etc.

(Even if you look back at most reviews from this gen from the usual suspect sites, you will notice how harsher standards were only ever applied to playstation exclusives. A playstation exclusive was docked points for "flaws" that were other wise ignored in nearly every other game. Was insane. There has been a history of this BS. We cant ignore it. Lets call all of this out for what it is. This needs to be stopped. There needs to be consistenecy across the board)

The same sudden harsher standards better be applied to xbone launch games or else.

When the barebones QTE riddled Ryse gets good reviews just for looking good and being a "showpiece" title, while Killzone- the best looking next gen launch game by miles still gets shunned by critics, THAT will confirm everything and prove there is a agenda in gaming media (against Playstation and for Microsoft)

Are the same gaming "journalists" who penalised a PS4 game for any little flaw they could find, going to suddenly ignore worse flaws in Dead Rising 3 and give it good reviews despite its severe performance issues? That will confirm it too.

Forza is more of the same old -same old shit, but I bet these so called gaming "reviewers" will eat it up because $ tells them to like anything that has the Microsoft name attached to its box.

As gamers we owe it to ourselfes to speak out against this BS. As a gamer of over 15 years it irks me to see whats going on, how Microsoft just buys off everyone and thinks they can buy their problems away. This must be stopped. We must FIGHT Microsoft OFF like we did during the xbone DRM/always online scandles. Do not allow any xbox shills or die-hard xboners to silence you.

And my recommendation to you, any of my fellow gamers is this, dont listen to any of these reviews of PS4 games, If YOU are interested in a PS4 game, rent it- get it, what ever, PLAY it for yourself, enjoy it, and come to your own conclusions

Anyway, these so called reviews arent going to deter me. Dont let it deter you. Still got Killzone and Knack pre-ordered!! Cant wait to play them! Happy Playstation day my fellow gamers! Just 2 more days baby! PS4 is going to be huge! PS4 has PS2 vibes of popularity in the air. Nothing IS STOPPING this PS4 freight trane. Keep trying all you want M$ and gaming media. We the gamers have the power. Youre only going to get exposed further and further;)

Xbone is the third most powerful console slightly behind PS3 and WiiU. It's not really in competition with PS4.

There was a PAID ADD for RYSE right there front and center in IGN's review of Killzone.

You want to know what that means? It means Microsoft paid IGN for that add; thats how IGN makes their money - now we are getting into "bribing teriority" ...and IGN put that PAID FOR ADD of RYSE right there in their review of Killzone. How much more blatant and shady can you get.

paid advertisement? you're upset over a paid advertisement?

Hahahaha cows are just comedic gold today. This is just priceless. Next thing you'll hear is MS paid Guerrilla games to make a subpar game.

#16 Edited by lamprey263 (23152 posts) -

MS took nothing but flack from the gaming media since the E3 presentation, and they slowly gained that respect back by reversing controversial policies, trying to squeeze more juice from it, and having more exposure of the product at gaming events while Sony just expected to ride the wave that MS's bad E3 press did for their image.

Keep in mind nothing is guaranteeing a smooth launch for MS either, if stuff goes wrong there people will forget all about the PS4's problems... well, they'll both be the subject of ridicule at least, which is much better than being the only subject of ridicule.

nope. In fact, most of the media are against the event for reviewers because it will be in a controlled environment. Or are you forgetting about Sessler's dilemma about his livelihood and what not?

But at the end Sony will win. They still haven't even shown their big guns. This is only the beginning of the road of hurt for the lems that deny Sony in their lives.

You denialists in the face of all common sense are so much worse!

All the info is out there. If you cant put 2 and 2 together then youre hopeless

Explain to me why the gaming media awlays rushes to Microsoft's defense?

EXPLAIN the big propoganda push to dsicredit 1080p once it was found out the xbone wasnt strong enough to do 1080p with the same high fidelity graphics of PS4 games?

Explain to me why the gaming media defended Microsoft when Microsoft was trying to commit crimes against the consumer and enforce their grotesque xbone DRM and always online schemes?

Explain to me WHY gaming media NEVER mentions how Microsoft is the BIGGEST supporter of the NSA, how Microsoft has handed off more stolen data to the NSA then any other company ever, and how the Kinect is spycam capable and is a serious threat to your privacy. Consumers should know all of this and yet gaming media tries to tuck it away and cater to Microsoft OVER US. Unacceptable.

All this down right suspicious activity from so called gaming media (plus there is Microsoft's proven shady history) and youre going to trust them to review PS4 games fairly? Yeah, right...exactly....dont be that typical sheep. IF you are a real gamer stand up and make your voices heard against Microsoft/against gaming media etc

Keep with that damage control.

I have noticed unfair bias practically everywhere I go though.

Who cares in the end. I'll love KZ. I'll enjoy Knack whenever I decide to get it.

Its outselling the x1 , so MS would be the loser for now.

#36 Posted by BPoole96 (22784 posts) -

I feel so victimized in this industry being a Playstation fan. Everyone always loves Xbox and everything they do. One small thing bad about Playstation and the industry collectively attacks Playstation and it's fans. Xbox makes tons of mistakes and the industry goes into damage control mode and fellates the Xbox regardless. It's just not fair :( :( :(

#37 Posted by kingoflife9 (1987 posts) -

lol dat damage control. it flopped get over it, move on with your life. should have got an xbox one, at least its fun to play.

My god you xboners are stupid.

It was a review event. Every COMPANY does it.

Sill, the reviewers had to fly out on their own, and they have to return the PS4s...only PS4's for the office are kept.

Sony was very professional.

Now compare that to the down right suspicious review events Microsoft has had. Case in point

#39 Posted by iambatman7986 (394 posts) -

Cows, please don't sink to this level. Anyone expecting more than a 7 for KZ was dreaming, but a 7 is still a good game that I plan to play the hell out of. Nobody ever talked about the AI, level design, or gameplay of KZSF, it was always the graphics. Knack has been getting bashed by the media from day 1. Hell even a Playstation site talked about how bland the game is. I still see where the reviewers are having a good time with it. I watched a little bit of the GS Q&A while they were playing Knack and they were laughing and having a good time with it so if the game interest you, forget the reviews and enjoy the game. A review shouldn't make you enjoy your games of choice any more or less. Some of my favorite games last gen weren't the AAA blockbusters. I'm sorry, but I'm not seeing the conspiracy here.

Polygon on BF4 Runs faster on PS4 higher resolution on PS4 = tied.

Polygon Ghost runs faster on xbox one,while been 100% lower resolution. = Xbox one version superior.

BF4 and ghost have crap story = Ok.

Killzone SF has ok story = sucks.

They don't even hide any more thankfully people are ignoring all that crap and buying the console any way,funny how the PS4 can't do good 2 days from launch...M$ at work..

Well I didn't see this much optimism and defense in regards to the PS3 when it launched, was getting the inferior multiplats etc... but in the end it doesn't matter. Buy the console you want, play and **** the media.

lol dat damage control. it flopped get over it, move on with your life. should have got an xbox one, at least its fun to play.

I would advise against setting yourself up for ownage. For all you know, the XBone line up is just as bad as the PS4's. At the very least, at least the PS4 has the superior version and/or exclusive content for several games. Plus, PS4's 2 best launch games (Resogun* and Warframe), are free

*with PS+
