- Looks like both consoles are just shipping the hardware with the software to arrive via a day-one patch. All in an attempt to have it on the market before Xmas. Which in my eyes is pointless because I will be using the money I get at Xmas to put towards getting a PS4 - once there are next-gen titles available that I actually want.

- What's that I hear? They are replacing zombies with aliens for the upcoming CoD game. I know I for one am sick of zombies, but I'm also sick of CoD, so I won't be getting the game either way. At least they are trying SOMETHING new.

- I know an even cheaper way of blocking the Kinect: buy a PS4. Not only are you saving money but you haven't just bought something that isn't going to be used, but is still forced upon you.

I definitely want a next-gen console... But I'm gonna hold off for summer 2014 before buying one (or both). With the launch line-up being a bit crap now, I just don't see the point in getting either this year. I'm a PC gamer mainly, so I'm just interested in the platform exclusives (not a fan of Killzone).


Also, Ghosts might be the first CoD game I own since Modern Warfare 1. I'm actually quite excited about the more ridiculous aspects of the game, especially this new alien mode.

Something about Jess makes me think of a tasty fruit. This is my apple day, tomorrow it's blueberry day. I got it all worked out.

Funny how people are complaining about the one time 300mb patch update, I mean Android games are that size now! Remember the day one compulsory Wii U update that left almost no storage space in the 8gb model. Now that's ridiculous :)

The kinect camera cover is the funniest thing ever!

An update that includes blu ray movie playback?? so if you don't want to do the update you cant even watch movies that's sad

I really wish I had reserved a PS4, but thinking about all the preorders booting up on release day and trying to download a 300mb patch just sounds like a head ache.  Hopefully non-preorder stock will replenish quickly and I can get my hands on one soon after launch.

The 60 fps is awesome. I can't watch any IGN videos anymore... Be careful tough now that you made people addicted to it, you better don't put up any non 60 fps video ever again.

Digging the 60fps.  A standard alien apocalypse is still an alien apocalypse that needs to be stopped and if done right, caters to my interests. PS4 update seems absurd, but as long as you can play games without updating first it's not a dealbreaker. Nor would it be, let's be honest.

Laughed my ass off with how Jess Macdonell stated the obvious about the piece of plastic and ps4's update, funny girl. Hot too! Sorry, you always say "Let me know" so I let you know.

If it had only been Dinosaurs I'd have considered my first COD purchase ever, Aliens are almost as generic as Zombies. They could even keep the name Extinction.

So many needy users LOL.

Jess your wardrobe is massive, I imagine you dedicate a whole room just as a closet.

You could just use a grocery bag and wrap it around the kinect lol

Jess's hair looks a bit gruffy today. 

Is it just me, or is the recording seems smoother, as if using 60fps? :D

I'll buy the Xbox One first before deciding on that kinect peripheral.

GS News is one of the best things that happened to Gamespot.


And no. That's the thing. Microsoft says that the Xbox One, or how we call it down here: Xbone, won't boot if Kinect is unplugged. So the only way is to cover up the camera.

So, the million or so people who obtain a PS4 on launch are all going to be downloading a 300mb patch at roughly the same time.   Surely nothing can go wrong there!

I watched the ReviewTechUSA video today where he said that the PS4 patch disables DRM. Do you think it's true? I know that nobody has confirmed it but I trust the guy.

CoD Dev #1: Dude. Zombies.

CoD Dev #2: Dude. We did that, already.

CoD Dev #1: Dude...Aliens.

CoD Dev #2: Duuuuuude.


Aliens: The ingredient that makes everything better!

@waremon GS is testing out their new 60fps player, so yeah, most likely they are recording all their new shows in 60fps...

@Trickymaster They confirmed awhile back that the Xbox One would run without the Kinect--another change from their original policy.

Yeah it will cause problems, but I'm pretty sure you can use the time with v1.00 to play games or maybe the 1.50 also comes on games?

@Zombie97 Sony was looking into DRM pretty heavily until the stuff leaked about MS way back when.  Sony then allowed MS to think they were still doing DRM so that MS would leave it in and annouce it.  So if they have some DRM in early code I wouldn't be surprised.

@Zombie97 It's a fact that Sony fooled their fanbase into hating Xbox by claming "No DRM", but most likely they already made those changes after E3 in June.

@rawkstar007 I can play anything that comes close to capturing the ambush scene in Aliens. "They're coming out of the !#@$@#$ walls!"

@Cristhian_Cobas @waremon  That may explain why gamespot vids and just gamespot vids are playing wobbly & choppy on my tablet all of a sudden. The sites so much worse since it all changed.. :-/

@triton1977 @Zombie97 From what I remember, Sony was pretty specific in their wording on DRM, implying that it wouldn't be building DRM into the console itself--and suggesting that third party DRM might be allowed. Gamers read into that what they wanted to, but Sony's wording was always a bit vague. Fishy, yes. But I think they were honest--in a way that allowed gamers to mislead themselves. We'll know for sure in a few weeks when the console is actually out.

@triton1977 @Zombie97Apparently Shuhei Yoshida called the video "so stupid" on his Twitter so it's probably not true, but there is something fishy about it. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
