Only really watched this video for the Pokémon bit, shame about the backlash on the "pixelated Ash" comment, I actually didn't think about it, until reading the comments, although actually, in addition to what has previously been said, "Ash" was a default name available for Pokémon Red, and not just Pokémon Yellow, which was based on the anime, although I wouldn't personally know myself, as I played Pokémon Blue instead ;), and didn't have enough money to buy Pokémon LeafGreen/FireRed :'(!

Come on fish, keep on swimming, two Pokémon down, 148 to go ;), unless you manage to get a time machine and get a Pokémon Event in the 90s, then it's 149 ;)!

It is about time they got called out on the number fixing to sell titles! It was such a gimmick that fanboys really held onto.  
Just like the whole contrast ratio for TVs, which varied from make to maker since they all had different base lines and reference points.  But damn did they ever use those numbers to try and increase sales counts, just like the 1080P fiasco.

Ridiculous lawsuit they are wasting the time of the legal system.

I want to preface this with saying, Shame on  you Sony! You guys are better than that! annd Cheers to Bikini Bottom for finally getting Pokemon Red!


although the suit against sony is justifiable, i'm not sure the pixel difference would add a significant amount of quality to Shadow Fall. At least not enough to throw on a suit, a lawsuit, and a few months of legal work.... 


Ps. Am I the only one that finds the idea of a fish catching something really funny!?

the lawsuit isn't that bad considering that sony lied to it's fans if they said straight up what it was it would be fine but lying is just wrong

Okay, the lawsuit is crazy. I own the game and the graphics are amazing.


But... I WANT IN.  As someone who owns it I demand to be included in the class action. In the even there is a lunatic judge out there, I wanna chance to get a 3 dollar check from Sony.


I love my PS4, but self-interest trumps.

So is assassins creed rouge only being released for old gen so that the can re-release it again "remastered"? Since all the current gen consists of is old gen games "remastered", which basically just means increased resolution and slightly better textures. I am still waiting patiently for the the "greatness that awaits me".

Am I the only one mildly annoyed that she said "pixel Ash" when talking about the pokemon twitch? His name is Red. 

Not enough that I'm going to rant about it but it just seems that this is such common knowledge that I don't see why there was any mistake.

Minus she's a female who likely has zero interest in video games and is just paid to get our attention.

Its ridiculous that Console companies lie, but its also ridiculous some dork has the nerve to sue over something so trivial.  I know its a broken record but, the nerd should have went P.C. if graphics matter that much to him.

I wonder why Jess, who works at GamSpot news, or Eddie, their news writer, won't report the news that Sony has two teaser trailers for a new game announcement at Gamescom?

Microsoft wouldn't be too happy, would they?

ok on the sony story.... if the graphics are "that blurry" on a ps4 then the xbox one games that dont run in 1080 must be terrible so thats why not so strong sales-all makes sense now.

someone should also sue microsoft for false advertising the kinect as an "essiental part of the experiance"

Why were people shocked Sony lied about a game's resolution, heck they were even touting Watch Dogs as 1080P and 60fps just a few days before it released lol. Huge Companies are not your friends, they lie for profit whenever they can(sorry i had to break the news to you true believers)

Dannystaples14

Killzone Shadowfall was blurry to the point of distraction........they do realise they are playing on consoles right? If they were that sensitive to resolution they should just stick to PC at 4K. Consoles were never about maximum visuals. Consoles have been behind PC in pretty much every visual case for every console, so why is it suddenly such a shocker?

ahmad996

Why would so many people be tempted to buy the game if its multiplayer runs at 1080p? Thats a load of rubbish in my opinion. If people have anything to complain about it should be that the game wasn't that good to begin with. Completely wasted my money on it. (Complete COD clone)

Sony's lead is partially related to the 1080p argument. Because of their false advertising, it has done unfair damage to Microsoft that is unrepairable. While I don't agree with the plaintiff being awarded any money other than a refund - Sony should admit publicly about their dishonest practice. This isn't the first time Sony has been guilty of false advertising - and obviously not their last. A punishment is in order here for a repeat offender.

@Taganobie ye I don't even think sony should be sued over this. considering guerrilla games never even used to be a sony studio before sony aquired them after killzone 1 did so well. it should be down to the developers who obviously lied to sony told them it was native 1080p when it wasn't, their studio should pay the price not sony. at any rate, I think that guy was just very bitter probably didn't like killzone anyway and thought screw it they give me this sucky game and lie to me about it I am going to sue them. there are plenty of people that like the game and the graphics are still brilliant despite not being native 1080p at least its better than the xbox one upscaling games to 1080p from 720p on most games.

" I own the game and the graphics are amazing."
Yes, the graphics are amazing.  I have the game too, regardless of the specifics of the numbers.

Is it really in your long term self-interest to engage in opportunistic lawsuits?

Just a thought.

@Roanark  maybe not. i would not have known as pokemon came out after my childhood. i know pikachu and that is it end of fcuken list. also i don't care about pokemon but some people do. 

now if you knew anything about jess or even spent anytime watching GS news, or any of her other shows, you would know that its COMMON KNOWLEDGE that she is an avid gamer and then you would not have that foot in your mouth

@Roanark She was probably calling him the pixelated Ash because of the TV show. You could pick multiple names for him (including your own) at the beginning of the game, Red just happened to be the one that stuck while people were talking about the game generically.  As a Pokemon lover since the original, I thought what she said was funny, and you are just a misogynistic Asshole.

@yemanator2k14 It's stupid to complain about 720P games vs 1080P games (some XboxOne games vs. those same games on the PS4) really but people do it anyway. Sure, that's a "bigger" difference in quality, but who the heck cares so much about eye candy when the game WORKS and, at the very least, looks good, period??

@rickphoenixxx This is the same company that put rootkit's into CD's that would infect your OS (Google Sony BMG copy protection rootkit), and Sony Pictures Senior VP had this to say about it: "The industry will take whatever steps it needs to protect itself and protect its revenue streams... It will not lose that revenue stream, no matter what... Sony is going to take aggressive steps to stop this. We will develop technology that transcends the individual user. We will firewall Napster at source - we will block it at your cable company. We will block it at your phone company. We will block it at your ISP. We will firewall it at your PC... These strategies are being aggressively pursued because there is simply too much at stake."

Sounds like the bad guys in some of their video games, right?

@ahmad996  Sadly I think some people would actually buy the game just because of how pretty it is and not how good the game is. When I was growing up it was all about how good the game was to play, how good it looked came second. But now it's all about how good the game looks, or any other positives that can be used as ammunition in the pathetic console wars.

@Sevenizz Sevenizz, some of us have got together and have been moved by your consistently righteous stand against the dishonest practices of games companies, particularly Sony, and we have come up with the best punishment of them all for Sony.


We believe that if you, Sevenizz refuse....(im in tears to even have to type this, it's that sad a thought) if you Sevenizz refuse Sony your purchase of any of their platforms (PS3, PS4, Vita) then that would speak volumes to Sony about how naughty they have been and we believe would ensure Sony goes bankrupt and never gets the chance to lie....ever again!


THE moment you "The Almighty Sevenizz" tell Sony that you are going to do this Sony will melt like the wicked witch of the west in the documentary "Alice in Wonderland".


You are THE hero of our times! God Bless you!

@sirapathetic01 @yemanator2k14 

The best looking console games of last generation were 720p on the PS3 and no one cared that they were 720p.  Everyone praised the graphics.  No one cared about the official number.  It's what you see on screen that counts.

It the benefits, or end result that count.  Not the features (the actual numbers).  

If the numbers weren't mentioned, everyone would take the graphics by what the see on screen and not by the numbers.

@sirapathetic01 @yemanator2k14 Because there is a difference especially if you got used to it, and it's 2014.

1080p 60fps should be the standard.

To me the 720p can be ignored. The 60 fps is an absolute must. If your game isn't running at 60fps, you doing it wrong.

Racing games at 30 fps are a joke.

So again, where is the report about the two teaser trailers Sony released for their upcoming game announcement at Gamescom? What if it was Microsoft and not Sony?

@J4m3sR4n0r72 

Maybe it will help them to be more honest in every claim they make. 


I don't think there was any damage done.


I think everyone loses when people file these opportunistic frivolous lawsuits.

"Millions were tricked into buying the shooter.  I think most people would have bought the game regardless of it being 1080p or 960p or 960p upscalle to 1080p, ect.


Thank you for your response.

FINALLY SOMEONE GETS IT!

But in all seriousness - as a student of marketing, regardless of who's doing the false advertising or manipulative marketing - it's wrong.

I recently replayed the ME trilogy and noticed ME1 had much inferior graphics to the latter titles. Know a good lawyer?

Seriously if it bothers them so much, as for a refund. Filing a lawsuit is just an effort to steal their money.

If AC Rogue were good they'd be letting GameSpot get a preview of it, I believe.

Good pun, give it an 8 on the Pun Pain Scale (0=no effect, 10=need alcohol to forget it).

Sort of how Sony stole money by deceptive advertising? You approve of this type if marketing? You like being blatantly being lied to by mega corporations? This case sends a message that the little people don't like being swindled and they will fight back!
