While I do agree that Skype on the PS4 would be nice (they have it on the Vita, so I don't think it would be such a huge problem to get it onto the PS4 as well), I really don't think it's necessary. I already have Skype on my phone, laptop and Vita and I'm sure many others also have a multitude of devices that run this app.

For the rest, Sony really doesn't need to do much. In my book, the system menu is already better, games install much quicker, Sony finally got cross game chat / party chat working whilst MS found a way to break a working system, etc etc.

I don't need the PS4 to do what the Xbox does. If that was the case, I'd have gotten an Xbox.
Playstation has always been the platform with the most attractive exclusives for me, I don't think that will be any different this generation. That should be the most important factor when deciding which console you buy, cause in the end you just wanna play good games on it.

I have watched some BluRays on the PS4 by now, I really cannot see any difference in quality compared to the PS3.
I read some reviews that the quality on the PS4 is supposedly lower... I really cannot confirm that.

Cool, add me as well:

TC: Maybe you could add the following to your post? If people send out invites here, please mention that you're from Gamespot, just so it's clear who you are.

I've been getting a lot of random and weird friend requests recently that I declined because it seemed like people confused me with someone else (calling me a different IRL name in their request).

I'm currently playing Killzone and I suck. :D
I see people mentioning Destiny; I'll be getting that as well, some more people to play with would be excellent!

Wait for Guild Wars 2. Mobs don't respawn there, and the big bads tend to be of a lawful evil or chaotic neutral alignment.emot-smug.gif

Mobs don't respawn in GW 2? (didn't follow the game much) Where do they come from then, otherwise the world will be pretty empty very quickly. What other mechanic is in place then?

I just picked it up last weekend and found myself enjoying it more than I thought I would. I stopped playing WoW when the first expansion came out and the game started to get heavily nerfed. I found Warhammer Online to be really bad. Even on highly populated serves, I hardly ever ran into another player. So the premise of public quests and open world PVP meant very little. Also, the world wasn't much to look at, therefore I didn't want to go and explore. Bad for an MMO, IMO. Rist obviously feels like an MMO for people who abandoned the games above, offering the good stuff about those games with enough freshness to be something on its own.

You definitely need to play it with friends, even just one will do (I've played this a lot with a buddy of mine). Panic screams and hilarious giggles over the microphone make this game worthwhile. Also, it's just fun to mow down waves of zombies and the team play aspect forces you to cooperate, which is a good thing. :) I avoided this game for a long time, which was a mistake. If you have people to play it with, get it. You can't go wrong with it. ;)

Hi everyone, My girlfriend loved playing Halo 1 + 2 on the original Xbox and frankly I'm amazed that she never went to go and buy herself a 360, so I'm now looking at getting her one for Christmas. She recently played Reach and Scene It at a friend's place and had a blast. As we already have a PS3, Wii and PCs capable of running demanding games, the only thing I'm afraid of is buying the box and ending up not having many games to get that I couldn't get for one of the other systems just mentioned. I haven't followed the 360 lineup very closely over the years and I've heard that there are quite a few cool, perhaps lesser known games for it. Other than Halo, Fable and Gears of War, what other games are worth getting that I could not find for PC / PS3? As said above, I'll definitely get her Halo 3 / Reach and Scene it, what other games are awesome to play together (with some other friends)? Thanks for your help!

why would I be disappointed about something that was never promised or even announced?hiryu3

Well, there have been tons or rumors and "leaks", like the latest here:

We saw a story appear this morning on the internet which caused quite a string of excited profanity to flood the Towers. We had a little discussion about whether or not to share that story as the source wasn't a confirmed one.

We decided that the story needed a bit more checking before we ran it. So, we got in touch with a source of our own and it appears that the story is correct. Starhawk, the much anticipated follow up to what some still consider to be the PlayStation 3′s best online gaming experience (Warhawk, if you're wondering) has been given a retail date by GAME stores.

What is that date? February 4th 2011. That's less than two months away. Whilst this retailer scheduling is not confirmation of a date, it is a reasonable stab at when they expect to be able to gear up their pre-order displays and sales pitches. I can barely type with the excitement.

Hello everyone,

after a new PS3 exclusive was set to be revealed this weekend and Uncharted 3 was announced a few days before that, many reports popped up claiming that the chances are good that the long rumored Starhawk would finally be shown off.

But no, it was Uncharted 3 after all (don't get me wrong, I love the franchise... but who didn't count on a third part?.

I would have loved to see Starhawk at last, and I sure hope that this game even exists. Warhawk was one of my favourite online games, and to take the action into SPACE... one can only imagine the possibilities. :)

I hope that this is still to come.
