a little bit of both i guess. gamers who buy games from the franchises they like hoping that they will get a better more evolved game (ive been guilty of this....i bought ac3 knowing revelations wasnt that much fun and buying treyarch cod games after black ops 1)
developers for taking advantage of bringing out a game with little effort in trying to evolve it for the sake of sales....but they are just doing their jobs and who knows, maybe that is the game they wanted to come out with and they labored for it
majority of blame goes to gamers though.
just on technical design, id go modern. most games fix camera problems, piss poor controls and whatever bugs/glitches the old games had.
but nostalgia always plays a factor. but i want more games to get the hd treatment....im waiting for kotor and kotor2 (finish my all time favorite game) that would be freaking awesome

dumbed down.....you do know that controllers dont have as many buttons as kb have keys right? off course its going to be dumbed down. now if ALL developers made kb/mouse as a viable option on consoles (i know of only a couple of games that let you play kb/mouse) then we can talk a bit more.
it extends much further than controls
but i think thats how it started...pc games went a different path for awhile but consoles are the lowest denomination to develop for so when consoles kind of kept up with pc, the controls would still be the biggest hindrance imo.

who did not expect this?
hell the 360 staying even with the ps3 last gen was easily the biggest shocker of last gen.
nobody saw that shyt coming.
and now with sony not being completely incompetent for the entire 1st half of a gen there is almost no way ms will keep up.
You really want an answer to this question?
Do I really need to link you the thread with the article about the One outselling the PS4 on Black Friday and all the people ready to hand Microsoft the victory in the US? Or can you find it yourself.
the same articles that had little disclaimers that said that ps4 was in short supply or were sold out so that could have led to xb1 winning black friday? yea show us those articles
role reversal. ps3 exclusives were better looking than any 360 exclusive had but 360 had better looking multi plats. lets just wait til uncharted releases then well talk

Oh boy, I honestly dont give a sh*t about TitanFall, but EA is gonna regret so hard not putting it on PS4...
apparently their Titanfall deal is good enough for them to not miss whatever sales they would have collected on PS3/4. Or they wouldn't have made the deal.
its ea we are talking about. they miss the boat sometimes when it comes to making good decisions
No, because it would break!
Seriously though, no. The tablet is one of the best parts of the system (battery life excluded), and helps to define and differentiate it from the others. Dropping the tablet would be the stupidest thing Nintendo could do at this point.
What Nintendo really needs to do instead is fix their marketing, fix their PR, and bring some games that really utilize the tablet, especially for asymmetrical multiplayer. There's so much potential there, they're just squandering it right now with their stupidity.
Also, your poll is shit. Really.
but a lot of people are staying away because of another gimmicky controller. its why i havent bought any of their consoles since the gamecube personally, and there are people that are like me. too late for marketing the console....just market the games
I didn't include killing instincezs since this is a pile of shit compared to warn bros fighters.
Both consoles are pretty generic high end pcs for $400-500 respectively
Just lookning at videos on youtube and the latest generation ps3 and 360 titles. The graphics are just clearer with better framerates like people have been doing on pc's for a while now.
the cell was ahead of the curve as far as exclusive games but very few developers really wanted to develop for it. More traditional architecture should basically fix what was wrong with the ps3 as far as the psn store integration being so freakin slow and multiplats having issues. But as far as raw computing performance is concerned as far as if someone really wanted to go in there and make a great game there is no difference. Just more traditional architecture with a cpu>alot of memory bandwith>gpu....
Xbox live was already fast. Xbox one has tv and kinext integration which who cares... The 360 was somewhat underpowered and some games i just wish were a little sharper when playing gta 5.
I was looking at a video of madden 25 on ps3 and ps4 and its like the graphics were good already? So now it looks like a pc game. Great.
So I now get to play the same game i've been playing for the last whatever years that never improves but just a little sharper....
Consoles have their exclusives. I could slap together a pc myself that would do the same thing and spend more money but these companies can sell these consoles at a discounted rate.
So this is what it takes to be a multi billion dollar industry these days? Slap together a $500 pc that any meathead could, rehash the same games and franchises over and over which a monkey could do.
And we wonder why the economy stinks and there are no jobs.
There is absollutely no innovation here. These consoles are just basically what last gen should have been and these manufacturers are just putitng a lockdown on their stuff. No matter whether i get a pc, an xbox one or a ps4 they are basically the same hardware. All should now be able to process graphics at a high resolution with optimal framerates now... The end is near? While these manufacturers basically milk the general public.
I could do what these companies do in my basement. What makes them so special? Because they have copyrighted everything i can't mass produce teh same stuff?
is this like your second console launch? have you played cod2 compared to newer games? cod2 looked like a ps2 games compared to games that released this year on the same console. thats how it always is in the beginning multi plats and a couple of exclusives at launch. just wait
No obsidian are incompetent.They are only good at releasing half finished games filled with bugs..
i dont know about incompetent but hell they need to finish kotor 2
just opinions. i think thats plenty spaced out compared to the xb1. after titanfall, i dont see anything else for a long while. ps4 has at least a couple exclusives that arent bunched together in march. i hate having to buy like 5 games at once cuz i dont get to play all of them. farcry3 is still shrink wrapped for goodness sakes

He's a crack head. This will be the last generation of consoles and we'll only see updated versions? What's next Xbox U?
I love it when people say stuff like this.
He's an analyst that's way more or seemingly more successful than any of us.
he must be a better analyst in other markets because hes been so so with gaming analysis apart from the obvious things like "ps3 is too expensive" "x console needs software" "wii u needs third party support"

What have cows got to counter Titan Fall, Halo 5 and Quantum Break ? The game situation is looking very dire on the PS4. No body cares about Infamous and Drive Club is struggling and probably be a flop. No sign of Uncharted or a new God of War. And lets just face it, apart from UC none of these games are system sellers. Are cows hopes on Indie games? Even there it looks like all Indie devs are scrambling to get on board the superior development environment on the XBO. Even the $100 price difference is only having marginal effect on sales as the PS4 is not too far ahead. All the while the XBO development kits keep improving and its a matter of time before it meets parity with resolution on the PS4, but then again semi-core don't care for this but lapping up the multimedia features. Sony by the way keep losing money and can't afford to secure big exclusives. The future is looking dire for cows and their ps4s.
Titanfall doesn't need to be counter multiplatforms = lol.
Only on Microsoft platforms, Lulz not coming to Ps4, try harder might Tormentos you have failed
didnt know ms made pcs@Floppy_Jim said:
I think we're supposed to make a list of PS4 games that the TC will dismiss because of reasons. I think that's what he wants. WHAT DO YOU WANT, TC?
totally agreed. failed troll lol
