GS News - Xbox One Gets More Power; PS4 + Vita Bundle Incoming!
More graphical power is being unlocked for the Xbox One, a new Witcher 3 trailer unravels more details, and a PS4 + Vita bundle appears on Amazon!

More like PC gamers wanted that sexy new controller for their vastly more powerful machines. Now THATS the best of both world! XD
Approx $720 for PS4 and Vita? I think it's more cost effective to by an XBOX one (without Kinect) and a PS4. Might cost a little more but hey at least you have the best of both consoles. Just saying.
@TroyTrojanGamer erm... Mary Kish and Lisa Foiles are American, aren't they?
Anyone actually thinking the PS4 Vita bundle will be $700 or more in North America must not be thinking straight. The PS4 and Vita sold separately cost $600. Why would Sony charge more than that? I'm going to guess that it'll cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $550.
Wish this was available at launch, would've been a definite buy for me. As it stands, I likely won't be getting a Vita any time soon.
@UNCStriker88 My thoughts exactly. It feels like they put a PS4 and a Vita in a box at their full prices. It's gonna need to be a lot cheaper for people to want it.
@UNCStriker88 You may have a point. How does... $699.99 sound? Much better, yes? J/k.
I personally feel the PS4 and Vita, along with the XB1 and Wii U, are completely worth the investment for avid gamers that bundle is likely to only appeal to the most avid amongst u s.
@RevLux @UNCStriker88 Remote play capability of the Vita is very appealing for a casual gamer like me. The fact that I can play a game from my bed, right before going to bed, without the wife nagging up a storm for using the TV too much is something which I am very interested in. Also, the bundle price for USA is listed at $560 which is a good deal.
Yeah, uh... PC gamers wanted the XB720 controller to be compatible LAST YEAR.
Also, anyone else want to see more of Mary Kish? No offense Jess, but you shouldn't hog the news show.
Witcher 3: Not more kind of game but I have a lot of respect for CDPR and can't wait for their Sci-Fi RPG game CyberPunk 2077.
Gotta sell some Vita's I guess. But for that price? Sheesh, I thought bundles were supposed to be deals. .
More GPU Power For the XB1
It's about time. What took 'em so long. Better late than never.
The smart thing would have been to have a gpu/cpu/apu integrated into the Kinect itself.
What I liked about The Witcher 3
That redhead. She looks very closely identical to Sofia in Gear of War Judgment.
Women make a big difference in a game and in real life. It nice to the opposite sex in a game.
I don't like guys too much. Who game where there nothing but guys in there.
Great show Jess. Damn those Americans. If I wanted to see Americans, I'd watch IGN or just walk outside.
On July 4th, I don't celebrate Independence Day, I celebrate Mother's Day--I'm proud England was our mother country, the great relationship we have with out mother country and rest of the Commonwealth.
Jess, you look extraordinarily vibrant, vivacious and happy. That's really good to see.
I'd love to meet you in person when you're in LA, but if not, I think you're women anyone would ever want to spend time with.
Love the anti-american drivel you posted.good job buddy. Really idiotic comments about ign/gamespot...what a tool.
[Creepy stalker alert!]
Trashing his own country to kiss a chicks ass he has less than ZERO chances with. L.o.s.e.r.
@spartanx169x @falloutwanderer @SaintsRowLA I not back him up or anything, his comments are becoming more stalker like by the day, but he does say and the rest of the Commonwealth which Australia is a member of.
@SaintsRowLA Still mad about that a$$ kickin Murica handed you in revolutionary war I see...
@SaintsRowLA Some of you needs are creepy as heck man. I can just picture your beer belly and thick beard.
I'm sure you imaginary fan club are real impressed your silly pot shots. I'm very flattered.
You comments expose you for the kind or people you are.
You GameSpot regulars get stupider everyday.
I was in the military. I spent 6 1/2 months in the hospital.
I don't mean to brag, but I went above and beyond the call of duty, selflessly. The US military is much better because of the commotion I casused, especially for women.
No I don't think she's British. Where did you get that from? You didn't get it from me. You got that for you own inner stupidity.
I'm of British and German descent. I'm happy England is the mother country instead of some other country, unlike you.
I should stop taking the high road with you and your band of feeble minded children.
@SaintsRowLA That extra little bit isn't going to make much difference thanks to the outdated memory they used.
You are really stupid. Your conclusion is all wrong. I'm entitled to write derogatory comments about my fellow country man if I want.
@diggyphelps @RevLux @spartanx169x, and others,
You really need to get some reading comprehension. All other English/British people I've met took my statements as a compliment.
That's right diggyphelps RevLux, NorseLaz09, spartanx169x, keep embarrassing England and the UK. I guess that's why you come here.
@diggyphelps You really are stupid. You are repeating the words of a semi-illiterate, mentally challenged person, and you're jumping on her/his band wagon. So what does that make you?
May no woman every think of you as special, ever say you're the greatest, ever tell you your the best man they've ever been with in person or in a post. May that never happen. May no married women look on you wishing they could be with you instead of their husbands. I've had women tell me all the above and more.
If you do get married, I'm sure she'll be miserable, she'll have an affair behind your back, and she'll take all your money.
I could say worse things about you, but I'll hold them in reserve for now.
And how do you know their body structure from an avatar or comment you fool? I'm British, and not anorexic. Imbecile!
@Gravity_Slave Anorexic British and all Americans are overweight right?
There is more than one Gamespot office. Gamespot US, where Kevin, Chris, Tom, Justin, Caroline are all from, plus recently Danny.
Gamespot UK, where Martin, Mark, Jonny, Seb and Cam are from.
Gamespot Australia where Jess and Zorine are from.
And right now they are all together in the US for E3. Not difficult to understand is it? The world is bigger than just the US.
@Gravity_Slave You are a COWARD, and you have absolutely zero class! Grow up and learn to become a REAL MAN!
@Gravity_Slave You are so ignorant.
That price is downright ridiculous. They should also bundle it with one PS4 game and one Vita game. If you can't give out hard copy of the game then please do give us the code to download the game. Now is that so hard.
@DEATH775 Maybe if they threw in a year sub. to ps+ it would sufficiently sweeten the pot...Then you would have "free" access to some of the best games on the VIta as well as some awesome, at least imo, indie titles on the PS4.
Well if I ever get a gaming rig, I will definitely use the Xbox One controller. MS definitely nailed best controllers since 360 and to date with Xbox One. Can't say I really care about the extra performance tho. I own both Xbox One and Ps4 and to me they are identical. No need for more performance, Xbox One has good games and thats all I care about. Not that interested in the PS4/Vita combo. If you ask me this is sort of like Xbox One with Kinect. Sony needs more Vitas in people hands to make devs jump in but right now I can't seem to find a reason to own one. Using it as a second controller/screen for my ps4 doesnt cut it for me. I hope Sony has a lot more than this lame announcement. They should have bundled these when the ps4 launched...
The PS4 does have a really good controller and a good touch pad. I love it.
The touch pad can work in various ways depending on the game:
Pressing the left side can act as the back of select button on the 360//PS3
Pressing the right side can act as the start button on the 360 and PS3
You can swipe up, down, left or right so it acts as a second d-pad or swipe pad
In Thief, it really works its magic: touch the pad and the inventory of a potential 10 or 12 items comes up, slide your finger to the item you want to select and press down. That can be a great addition to any game.
You mean Sega...MS stole the design while working on the Dreamcast with Sega.
@homelessgamer Are you saying you have finally found a home?
Still not sold on the Vita so I'd pass on the bundle. Though that Witcher vid looked pretty awesome. Makes me want to finish the 1st one, which I started playing when I bought the 2nd one... I really gotta catch up.
Btw, this gonna be the first time Top 5 was done day of? (With it not being Saturday in Aus and all)
@Pawfalcon PS Vita has some fantastic games, I just wish there were more. Hopefully Sony announces something good for the Vita at E3. I'm sure that the console will seem more appealing once the PS4 gets some decent games (Remote Play) and PS Now becomes available.
Yeah, I haven't finished The Witcher 1 either :(
