I'd buy the Mass Effect trilogy on PS4. Sure, I've got in on the 360 but eventually that will be phased out for an Xbox One. At least, that was the plan last summer.

I've played each Mass Effect about three or four times.  I'd love to see what a revised version looks like, but I don't think I could play though them again.  I'd much rather have that effort put into a new game.

The graphic wars will never end the trolls will keep coming on both sides once xbox makes there photorealistic engine then sony will make there's and it will be about who's more photo perfect, I'm just looking forward to playing the games that uses it.

It is more impressive to get gold on a Ps4 alone than on 3 systems together. I am surprised that the gap between Titanfall and Infamous isn't bigger. After all, Titanfall is the big flag ship for the xbo and EA pushes it like crazy oO I even got Crysis 3 because I preordered it for free oO

Things like new graphic features (dynamic lighting, shadows, ambient occlusion) are cool and all but those should come AFTER THE FACT of the basic and foremost image resolution!

 The number one killer of graphics is when an image is "upscaled" to fit a monitor. Than you lose the crisp pixel per pixel aspect of gaming.


I think 1080p at 60fps should be the BARE MINIMUM of "next gen" consoles.. Fancy graphic rendering techniques should than follow.

inFAMOUS!! GREAT.


Mass Effect for the next gen consoles -- GREAT!!


Half Life.  Never played it!  Hopefully they'll make a new Left 4 Dead game.


Great show Jess.  *A big kiss on the cheek*

Mass Effects multiplayer is all i care about, new and better please. Which would just need a whole new game, but for fun include the reapers.

The Mass Effect trilogy is one of the best told stories in games. I'd love to re-experience that all over again on the next gen.

But what would really make my day is knowing Bioware is working on the next Mass Effect title.

If Bioware released a complete Mass Effect trilogy set (by which I mean with all DLC included) in higher-def on next-gen, I'd definitely buy it. Greatest gaming experience of my life!

Mass Effect is one of my favorite games.  Already have the trilogy so I won't be picking it up again.  I'm not really into buying games more than once.  Exception being Halo Anniversary.  Hoping Halo 2 Anniversary will make it to 360.

UPDATE: NOTHING happened. No AMA. No Gabe. Nothing. a big old FU to everyone interested

There is nothing special about the Xbox One hardware, so there's no reason to believe they will miraculously pull off some miracle of graphics.  It's the same basic architecture of a PC, and also of course the PS4.


And don't say cloud :).  Latency and other network issues will not allow for it, at least not anytime soon.  Completely offloaded, such as games being fully run on the server and only sending video to the user (like OnLive or Sony's upcoming PS3 game streaming), that's another story, but generally that means somewhat poor video quality which could negate any gains in graphical capability.

@balto70  i have played 2,3 on xbox and have the trilogy for pc with a graphics card superior to the ps4. the differences will be 60fps for both consoles and graphics wise i have had them all in max settings and the difference between xbox 360 and pc isnt that big to be honest they have never been demanding games.

@rodoxthedark  Yeah but since the developers will probably yet again neglect the story and gameplay for those photo realistic effects I'll probably stick to the games that don't use it.

@dannydopamine28  Next Gen consoles don´t have the capability to run ray tracing on top of other graphical details... unless there is some new form of processing or some kind of revolutionary piece of code... MS's is once again spewing bullshit instead of focusing on games .

Sorry, I haven't played every game.  I'm too busy.  I only started playing video games back in 2009.

@tempertress @RicanV  Cutie Jess and I both born on March 3rd, I could almost swear 1/2 my relatives were born in March. It was really weird to learn my cousins bf was born even on the same year and date ... possibly around the same time(not weird like in that "DOUBLE RAINBOW!!" way.)


I went out for sushi, God i love sushi.


Happy birthday, Jess.
