GS News - Xbox One DVR only for Gold, DA: Inquisition details!
PS4 UK preorders won’t be guaranteed for launch, Xbox One DVR feature only for Gold subscription members, DA: Inquisition detailed!
by Edmond Tran and by Jess McDonell on
i dont think DA 2 was crap , its was just different, in fact i started the DA genre thanks to DA 2 , ( i couldnt get in to DAo the first time round). After playing and DA 2 and loving it i went back and gave DAO another go, and i was glad i did, it was alos a great game. They both great games in thier own unique way. I can see though why people might think DA 2 was dumbed down.
The streamlining did seem a bit unnecessary. I just didnt realize how much they streamlined until i played DAO, but thats hardly a a good reason to call a game crap, it still had some great parts (admitley DAO was clearly the more grander experience though)
Like the news out of DA:I, only thing left that I want to know is mod support...howver it will be published by EA, so....not much of a chance.
I don't have anything to add here. I guess I'm:
"Tongue-tied and twisted, just an earth-bound misfit". Love that song.
I'm waiting for the announcement that only Gold members can play XBOne games period. Every time news of XBOne comes out, it seems like it's news of them locking out features from XBL Silver members. WHy don't they just get rid of Silver altogether? Make Gold mandatory to even play the system? That's the direction they're heading in anyway. Just make it official. The only thing Silver let's you do is buy games from them. It's clear the XBOne is going to be even more useless than the 360 without a Gold membership. PS4 may be going in a similar direction, but so far they're just blocking online gameplay. From my understanding all other features will still be available without a PS+ membership. I'd say "way to drop the ball Microsoft", but at this point it would be more impressive if they actually caught a ball.
Jess, have you thought about adding your bloopers at the end of the show like they used to do, or are you just saving them up for a cool gag reel later on? ^_^
John Carmack is a genius, he taught himself aerospace engineering and is exceedingly good at it. Basically, being a rocket scientist is just a hobby to him. Not many people could pull that off.
the WiiU isn't looking good... the more devs dropping, the more the others will think about that and eventually, it'll just be Nintendo... maybe they should just concentrate on their portables, that's where they are succeeding...
as for the DVR stuff, i have no use for it, so, it wouldnt affect me either way... the pre-ordering, well, if that PS4+Vita bundle came out, if it were actually true, would certainly cause a few PS4 preorders to cancel their system-only and go for the bundle, thereby freeing up systems for those who weren't guaranteed one...
lolz, the most of XBone featuers only for Gold Users. Without Gold, it's not only garbage, it's even crap!
It's pretty damn underhanded to have hardware that doesn't work unless you pay extra. Do those who don't want to pay for gold memberships get a discount for their unusable DVRs? No?
Poor Wii-U, it's been a difficult year for Nintendo. I think the sales on the Wii-U will pick up after Nintendo release the games everyody wants, but I don't see it selling enought to lure third-party devs back on board. In other words, it will be successful, but it will be a NIntendo-faithful only machine.
Sony haven't said anything about their dvr feature being locked to ps plus or not, so let's not hurry to a conclusion just yet.
Now, could you first-world folks PLEASE stop pre-ordering consoles?! Brazillian PS4 pre-orders are still not available, why don't you guys spare a few consoles for us?!
Making the DVR in the XOne a paid feature is a crummy move. People already have to pay just to play online. It doesn't affect me that much either way since I'm getting PS4 early and XOne later on but I just hope they don't have HDCP enabled on either. Knowing MS, they're probably gonna put it on there just to piss of the gamers who forked out money for a capture card. I know Sony did it with PS3 because they were asked to by the DMC or DMA or some bullshit law just because it supported blu-ray. I also heard Sony maybe having HDCP on the PS4 >.> the idea of inbuilt capture on consoles WAS great, until both companies seem to have butchered the functionality on both.
If I recall correctly, the WiiU doesn't have the same power the PS4 or the XBOne have but it still feels like the devs are shying away from it because they think they can't use it or what they make won't sell on it. Personally, I think they're afraid to try and make something for the WiiU. BF4s Commander Mode would work great on that controller screen or you could even put the damn minimap on it! It feels like everyone gave up on the WiiU before it even got a good shot at some really quality games.
@kennythomas26 I just hope it has glowing kids.
@93ChevyNut You already added something here :D
@cKtheking Beacuse she's pale? That's a skin tone too. The same crap people give me: "Are you sure? You should go see a doctor...." Yes i'm f****** sure!
@snugglebear I agree. I personally don't have a problem with paying for additional online features and support, but charging me extra so that I can use the hardware that is already there is just ridiculous.
@Alecmrhand a hearing aid may be in your near future gramps... or is that freud making his intro?
@LJNkickstarter Jane is still doing her thing....quite excellently, i might add...you just have to know where to find her...
If she hadnt left we would never have gotten Jess.....I think its a win-win.
@wolf503 Both Xbox One and PS4 will have HDCP. It's required with BR built in.
@ZeldafanMimo I thought T-shirtless hehe
@DarkLord and thats because the only things that sell on wii are zelda and mario games, nintendo has been that way for a while, on N64 third party games didn't sell well, on gamecube they did poorly, on ds they did poorly on 3ds they are doing poorly on wii they did poorly. Nintendo buyers are mostly casual gamers who only buy a couple games and they are usually Mario, Zelda, Kong and Metroid. or things that are cutesy like Pikmin and Animal Crossing. Nintendo gamers are not looking for realistic physics or deep naratives.
@x2rufff4u I've learned that you're a troll that can't learn anything.
Or played Majora's Mask ?
@x2rufff4u Have you seen the movie: Groundhog Day?
@berserker66666 last time i check the PS 3.5 has no good games at launch and keeps getting worst, So have fun with bad PSN and no good games it will be like all those other PS3 they just sit there and collect dust.
@Carpe_Noctum Yeah, which annoys me, cause it's not entirely enforced. Like with Ps3 all you need to bypass is either a HDCP stripper which is kind of illegal or XSplit software which allows you to practically bypass HDCP with dual software or just use component which still gets you the 720P output. The other option is a proper console capture card but even then you may still need excess equipment. Also the XOne is supposed to have HDCP removed: http://au.gamespot.com/news/xbox-one-will-support-external-video-capture-6412417. I'm hopping Sony follows that to. Edit: Sorry linked the Gamespot 1 instead. :P dunno who that other site is.
@schmity1978 C- for effort but good try little fella....maybe next time lol
