GS News - Sony and Microsoft get hyperbolic + Star Wars games!

Sony and Microsoft incorrectly use the terms “breathtaking” and “magical”, also you’re stuck with the Kinect but EA is set to bring back great Star Wars games.

I could watch her describing paint dry and not get bored.

Also, X1 > PS4

Jess definitely takes my breath away.  She must have some magical powers.

Let gamespot know what do you think about their video ads by filing out one question survey below. All answers will be forwarded to gamespot so the video ads madness can stop. I am not against them having ads but we would all agree ads about Covergirl, 

Mr. Clean, Diapers, Hair solutions and other similar crap makes no sense to most of the gamers( ;-) ).

Can't believe I stared into Jess's eyes when she defined the word Magical. I'm screwed. Totally screwed.

Jess: I remember you doing some one-off shows, like that 4-parter about the different types of gamers (Introverts, hoarders, speed-runners, etc). I really enjoyed those and I was wondering if there was any chance of you doing any more of them, despite GSNew taking up what I assume is a large portion of your time?

Also, where can we find those old shows? It's so hard to find stuff on GS at the moment (lucky changes are coming that fix this).

Being able to say "Xbox on" and have it come on is magical? No, I'm sorry I think the iPhone already did that one trick pony show

I dont really get what's the point of people arguing which console is better. You know we all ending up buying both consoles anyway as well as collectors. I love sony since psx1 till now i never have a problem with xbox which i also own. Im not trolling or anything just what the fuck?

Yes Xbox One has been designed with Kinnect in mind, that's why Battlefield 4, COD, Titanfall, FIFA 14, Forza 5, Dead Rising 3 use it extensively as a requirement to play the game.. oops no they don't

Star Wars Game's list i would like to see ;

Battlefront 3 

Republic Commandos 2

Jedi Academy 3

1313

AND OFC "KOTOR"

And would like to see some different character story like "The Force Unleashed"

As you can see anything related Star Wars with Frostbite 3 is acceptable.

the console wars is a bit of a joke . They are pretty much the same so it doesn't matter which is "better" or which will "win" because at the end of the day companies will continue to make games for both . It's not about the hardware it's about what games we play.

i don't understand why people feel one could win or loose ? the ps3 and xbox 360 have both sold around 70-80 million haven't they ? that would suggest they are both a success .

Can they develop Star Wars Battlefront 3 Republic Commando for real? With campaigns from all the playable factions possible? With multiplayer online and offline ala CS with BOT and LAN support?

so when ps3 was $600 sony fans didnt have anything to say and when 360 has been kicking ps3 in the ass for the pass 5 or 6 years sony fans got nothing to say but as soon as they're $100 cheaper they all get happy and want to try and shit on xbox1 when the ps4 is a ps3 with better graphics they didnt really upgrade anything but the hardware and the ps4 doesnt really have any new fratures and now you have to pay to get the fullaffect out of the lil fratures they have ot offer and if PS fanboys want to talk about MS trying to push for everything being digital download sony tried do that with the PSgo and look what happen with that but at that end of the day sony fanboys should look at way sony lost $180 mill before trying to shit on xbox and please dont talk about used games cause everyone pre-orders their games and picks them up at midnight or day off release and no im not an xbox fanboy im getting both but i see xbox is giving more and all the good games coming out are 3party games and as far as i see xbox is givivg a better gaming experience like they have been doing on the 360

The Xbox guy with the hair looks like he has a sour prune in his mouth, one that causes him to be very happy. Sucking on that sour prune, looking happy, talking a bit, good show :)

As for finding stuff: When all else fails do a custom google search.

@LJNkickstarter I think a significant part of it comes from particularly the younger members of the community who don't always have the income to buy both consoles and tend to be more emotionally invested and expressive about that investment. Theres also the people who feel insecure about their purchasing decision right now who tend to need to validate themselves by arguing the merit of the choice they made. 

To be fair, its unreasonable and comes off a bit smug for somebody like me or yourself to start commenting that everyone should 'just get all the consoles' as not everybody can or even wants to make that kind of investment in essentially what is a hobby (despite numerous attempts to lobby the government to declare it a vocation... by me...  *sigh* one day!)

People are flawed and for the most part barley understand their own actions, behaviour like fanboysim and these console wars type conflicts wont go away until we recognise them as what they are. Insecure people looking for self validation who feel overly defensive of their life choices as they have placed part of their self worth into those choices. Its mostly just a bit sad.

@LJNkickstarter Well I didn't buy the PS3 because I already had an Xbox and saw no need to own one. The only thing with this is I never experienced any of the exclusives on PS3 which is kind of a shame.

As for paying $400 for a console and then another $500 for the other plus the add ons that will be needed like plug and play kits and headphones that don't suck, all for a few exclusives which up to now largely suck, you must be insane.

@chris_face Id actually argue (in support of your comment) its more important that neither console 'wins' the more level the playing field is the better things are for the industry just look at how Microsoft did that 180 on its policies. when there is strong competition it drives companies to innovate change and compete.

Personally I thought the overwhelming domination of the market by the PS2 was what made the PS3 far less successful. At this point I'm hoping for another neck and neck race between the two big guys both of their machines are looking awesome and they are both listening to and reacting to what we say we want. Thats an awesome state of affairs and long may it continue :)

@smoke1125 Err back then we were in were not in GLOBAL ECONOMIC MELTDOWN! . infact it cold be looked on has a financial golden age we just didnt see it then. then microsoft try to release a expensive console now and people like you wonder why people complain. fact is im not poor i have in fact two high end gaming pcs one with a 7970 the other a 680 gtx one with a i5 the other a i7 and a ps3 and a ps4 on preorder so no im not saying this because i am worried for myself merely because i see the need for a lower price point

@smoke1125the reason x-box has been kicking the ps3 is price.

in terms of graphics and such ps3 has been in the lead for quite a while, now, 4/5 years now, so considering that the ps4 hardware is slightly better than xbox, and it is 100$ cheaper, and sony didn't shot themselves in the foot with hyper intrusive DRM measures, and a spybot, you had to see it coming.

i still think all of this fighting is stupid, get a pc instead.

Might be ok if I could remember what those shows were about/called. :P

Figured Jess would know where they're all kept, or may think about uploading them to her blog or something.

'I think all this fighting is stupid' which completely validates my next comment that just happens to be the verbal equivalent of attacking two guys fighting because I hadn't been included in the fight I just called stupid...  yeah nice one there. :P

@Dannystaples14

Would be better off spending the money on a decent PC instead of a second console. That's what I'm doing, getting a PS4 and later a better PC.

But then that all depends on the individual. If a person isn't interested in PC exlusives and are happy to play FPS games with a controller, then it's obviously not worth it.

I, however, would get just as much use out of a PC and a PS4. But since there are no Xbox One games I want, there is no reason to buy one.

@DoogyDonDoogy @LJNkickstarter Beyond Two Souls, Uncharted, Demon Souls, God of War, Gran Turismo, Heavy Rain, Journey, Infamous. The cost of all of those plus the ones I missed off and the cost of the console are not worth it.

A console is only really worth it if you use it for exclusives AND the multi-platform games. Like those people who bought both console and left one of the two largely un-touched except for exclusives. Totally not worth the initial cost of the console.
