seriously, sif hate on Titanfall. Its made by the guys that created COD when it was actually good and its something interesting and completely different, to what we have anywhere at the moment. So dont hate until you play it, if you play it. Secondly whats more interesting is the low PC specs it needs to run. It runs on the valve Source engine and a 2.33 GHZ duel core cpu and 2Gb ram and a AMD 5870, but looks great.

Titanfall doesn't interest me at all at the moment, i might give it a go when my brother downloads it for the PC, but as i'm neither a huge fan of COD unlike i am with Killzone, i'm not sure if i will actually play it or not :/

Fairly surprised at all the hate here on Titanfall, especially toward those shaming it because of EA. The development crew is funded by EA to create a game, and regardless of how good may be "damn it to HFIL"? Just Lol.

I hear 4k gaming completely wrecks 1080p for people.  So once you go 4k, you never go back!  Now to get the thousands of dollars to setup a rig that can handle it haha!  PC > PS4 > XBONE.

you know what one pro in steam that makes it better? 

you can change your username, can't be done on playstation, and on xbox everytime you change your name or a user got banned his name was deleted off the system 

so unless you like to play on next gen with a shitty username 

you'll be going with steam, i can change my name everyday and profile pic without paying a dime 

screw you microsoft, paying for gamerpics/change your username is so bullshit 

can't you guys see?! both sony and microsoft is taking you for fools, no backwards compatability,paying to fucking play online and who knows, you might even need to buy another new expansive headset since the "old" ones are "not supported" console gaming was legit like 4-7 years ago when steam sucked 

but now, a living room PC (steambox) can be bought, so you can have all the advanteges of PC at your livingroom couch on a bigass screen 

no need to endure microsoft's&sony's pathetic bullshit 

it's time to advance, to see the real gaming (of course it's going to be expansive, but then again you wouldn't mind to pay for news maps then why not pay for better graphics+moar power?) 

face it consolets, your future of "next gen" sounds pathetic

1:14 Once again, proprietary hang-ups. And this is on top of a ho-hum launch line-up.

2:12 Yes! I prefer DRM-free. Steam is cool, but GOG is better.

And congrats to Steam. Unlike Sony/M$/Nintendo, Valve has EARNED their user base.

wow. no DLNA support.. seems like a big fail and a major step backwards.  Streaming through my ps3 is one of the biggest benefits.

2014 will be an amazing year for gamers - launch games are okay but the big hitters will be coming soon. For me, Witcher 3, Infamous and The Order look pants-combustingly awesome! 

Titanfall will be their magnum opus for exclusives, which is really quite sad when you look at all the potential PS4 is going to be chucking out. Won't miss it!

I'm not surprised at all that Titanfall is not making it to the PS4, because the xbox one is not as popular as the PS4 is, therefore, Microsoft must've paid them piles of money to keep it exclusive to the x1.

The Witcher!!!!!!

2 PS4s preordered, CoD Ghosts, Wolfenstein The New Order, and Killzone SF. Never cared about Titan Fall.

- I've never put a CD in my PS3 and never used the system to play music either. So not surprised the features are dropped. They need to cut manufacturing costs somewhere. Might as well cut out tech that's practically pointless.

- I'm not bothered about Titanfall. It's still available on PC if I ever become interested enough to try it out (which is not likely). Plus, first-person games belong on PC along with strategy and simulation games.

- I plan to upgrade my PC soon so I can start buying PC games again. And when I do I will have to get into the Witcher series. Those games are beasts and need super-computers to run them, so it will be a good way of testing a new gaming rig.

- I use Steam mostly for indie games / smaller titles - while bigger games I usually get on disc.

Everytime I see this lady, I feel she is so cute and pretty. See lots of comments here adoring her. My questions is whether she is an intellegent gamer to talk as a spoke person on GS? Speaking of me, I just come to hear to take a look at her cute face. That is it. Most of the comments here are men for sure and I know what they think of, including me.

GS. it is better to have a person who are really a gamer, not just a cute face to attract men. It'll mislead to something else.

Is that a bottle of Scotch on your desk?  That could explain the problem with standing and reading at the same time.  Not that I disapprove, I'm just saying.


Steam- great Community, great sales, great games, indie support and green light, friendly user interface, automatic updates, and high download speeds.

I don't use consoles for music so I don't rightly care one way or the other.

@quickshooterMk2 

Steam?  LOL!  Can you buy and sell your used games?   Microsoft just got their ass kicked for trying to limit your freedom like that for the XBone.  PS4 has no restrictions because they know you actually own your games.   Whatever advantages you think Steam is giving you, they are actually making you their slave and making gaming worse - not better.  Stupid PC elitists are the biggest fools of all.

@quickshooterMk2 came to brag cause you play on PC? you came to the right place (a playstation 4 post) I play on PC too, but I also play on consoles for its simplicity and convenience.... that simple. 

It is good to have another choice, because competence between gaming devices makes users win in the end.

Next gen consoles are for console players, no offense intended. 

By the way, you should pay an exciting electric bill playing on PC, since PC will always use more power than consoles when doing anything.

@kane6911 Better still, get a PC with a decent GPU (512MB or more) or upgrade the graphics card in their current PC.

@nate1222 Earned their user base? LOL.  first of all, I don't hate steam but lets be realistic, do you really think there would be 65mil registered users on steam if they don't force you to register and install steam for many of the games that are also sold on disc at retails?

until they stop forcing people to register and install steam instead of being optional when installing from a game disc bought from retails, then we will see if they really earn it.

@straightcur hmm yeah I did use the streaming feature a few times and it worked great. I'm a little sad that it's not going to be available.

@NonLinearMemory GOG (CD Projekt Red owns GOG) will definitely be getting my money for the PC version of The Witcher 3. And Steam will be getting my money for Titan Fall.

@NonLinearMemory With Titanfall being an "Always on-line" game do you think it will sale as well as everyone thinks? I know that on day one for CoD games there are around 13 million people logged on, then after the free gold membership that came with the game runs out that number drops to 4 million. So with those numbers it would reason that less than half of people that play CoD do not have gold memberships and with the numbers CoD sold then even less then half the owners of the game have internet connections at all. Now take it that only half of the CoD players will even like Titanfall, this would put around 1 million people that will have internet and gold, so sales look sad to me.

Microsoft and EA are in bed together. They share the same goal of screwing over gamers and the games industry.

@Scorpion1813 Playing cd, is okay not really needed, playing music is usefull and is just a programing issue which they could easily have fixed (usefull if you want to listen to your own music in some games (Sports, racing and so on)

2nd point well i could not agree more, 

Not really they dont need super computers my old PC can play them with no problems and i can pretty much make one very cheaply that can run them aswell so no super computers needed

For the Steam statment try our Desura they have way more Indie titles then steam has

@kritvichu I don't know much about her. I'm sure she's a very qualified journalist. She has a very funny laugh. I believe she lives in Australia. Nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there.

Jess is a gamer and a great games journalist.

If you can find them you should watch all the video features she did before becoming the host of GSNews. And by watch them I mean you should pay attention to what she is saying, and not just oggling at her lustfully.

Yes, Jess is a very attractive young woman - and while some do, I wish more people could see past that and see other sides to her. I don't want to step on anyones toes here, and I'm certainly not trying to be a "White Knight" or anything - but I can't be the only person sick of seeing creepy comments like "I only come here to look at Jess".

@Altazen @nate1222 Dude, I've never bought a Steam game at retail. Ever. I only know a handful of those who have.

Besides, it's not Steam who decides to make a game a Steam game. It's the PUBLISHERS who bring a game to Steam. Learn the politics.

@deadpen @NonLinearMemory I think all gamers are being squeezed into having "always-on-line" status, particularly with FPS and MMO's. Titanfall will hit a profit, but it won't do nearly as well as the Destiny franchise over both console life-times (but that's just my gut feeling). MS are less enthusiastic about making games with offline-status because they won't be able to profit from adverts. I hope Titanfall is a hit, so that other devs will keep challenging themselves to do better and create amazing new worlds.

@Scorpion1813 @jflkdjs #$%^#$ please!! lol!! Just like Sony waiting until just before the PS4 launch to tell gamers you can't play CD's or MPeg3 on the PS4. You can't stream outside videos to PS4. No external HDD support, can't play Blu-Ray/DVD or use remote play out of the box without an internet accessed patch. etc, etc... Who's screwing who?

@blackace @DonRoosevelt GTA is over-rated 

titan fall/killzone all just nuts to the wall shooting 

i want a game with a soul, with a good story and dialouge 

games like the witcher can make it happen 

Majkic666

@blackace @DonRoosevelt no but they have many more other exclusives and if you want to watch something while playing then you just pick a game and watch a movie on the second monitor... and did anybody say exclusives? guess what, there is most likely gonna come emulators out so that problem is also solved (not that i like the option but if they force my hand then its their own fault)

@DonRoosevelt @clr84651 Cows were so mad, they kept telling everyone Titanfall 2 will be on the PS4, even though it's not even announced. lol!!
