    Wake Me Six Months Before Release.

    It's E3 time, and I could give a **** less.Yep, it's that time of year when we're fed barely anything real. Target videos, hype reels, and other shit that's completely fucking irrelevant to what the f...

  • YukoAsho posted a message on the post Days Gone Review - Farewell, Oregon.

    @yeknomdab: I think "originality" is given somewhat too much importance nowadays in reviewing. Perhaps because of how much stuff is coming out, reviewers are getting jaded, having to play so many dam...

    Let's be for real here.We'll see new colors for the current system (not the controllers) released long before a new system.

  • YukoAsho posted a message on the post PlayStation 5 Release Date Still More Than A Year Away - GS News Update.

    November 2020 seems the most likely, yeah.I'd love to see Sony wait until 2021, though, if only to see them respond to the inevitable mistake from Microsoft.

  • YukoAsho posted a message on the post A Quick Look At Every Game In The Capcom Home Arcade Collection.

    This is silly, no doubt about it. This should have been a $50-$60 game on PS4/Xbox One/Switch. This SCREAMS cynical attempt at capitalizing on the mini market, with all the care and attention of th...

    I'm kinda surprised they weren't already there. The games division has long been a lark for the company. They've got tons of money in the bank owing to Windows and Office, and their Azure platform ...

    Years Away From a New Console, Why the Rush?

    So the PS5 was recently re-announced, even though there's nowhere near what can be called a final spec for the machine. We're probably another year from even having a real, concrete idea of what the P...

  • YukoAsho posted a message on the post Sony Officially Confirms PS5 Again, As PS4 Sales Near 100 Million.

    @Atzenkiller: Just about. Microsoft showed their real view of BC back in the 360 era, when they didn't even try to get Xbox games working on the 360.BC is a great thing, no doubt, but no one with a v...

    @batusai4ever: This. Sony and Nintendo understand this. Microsoft doesn't. It's very simple, and the sales numbers we're seeing reflect this.

    @Atzenkiller: Yeah, that did rather limit the X360. Though those memory cards were funny.

    @shuttle_cock: The Xbox One S is being pushed down because the Xbox One brand is in freefall, let's not kid ourselves here. Can't speak to Game Pass, save that it's clearly having an adverse affect o...

  • YukoAsho posted a message on the post Sony Officially Confirms PS5 Again, As PS4 Sales Near 100 Million.

    @ballashotcaller: Problem is that both systems have the same multiplayer games by and large - Fortnite, COD, Overwatch, et al. PS4 is also the exclusive home of Street Fighter V, making it the de-fac...

  • YukoAsho posted a message on the post Sony Officially Confirms PS5 Again, As PS4 Sales Near 100 Million.

    @Atzenkiller: Actually there WAS a $200 super slim PS3 with a few gigs of flash memory in lieu of a hard drive, but the 360 was still the king of the industry. The PS4 has had no rival at all due to ...

    @just1mohr: Not a mystery to me. QUALITY content appropriate for younger audiences is hard to come by. Seems they're the only ones who don't believe that kids only deserve garbage. Not only that, ...

  • YukoAsho posted a message on the post Sony Officially Confirms PS5 Again, As PS4 Sales Near 100 Million.

    @Atzenkiller: They were able to hit the mass market sweet spot a hell of a lot quicker. $300 has proven to be the number where units sell, and without any real inroads from MS, there's been no incent...

    @Pokemon18986: Probably a smaller percent than that. I can't imagine all those people playing nothing but online games. I imagine there's at least some split between people only playing online and p...

    @croxus: Disagree. The strategy helped them completely neuter the Dreamcast back in the 6th generation, and it's worth remembering that the PS2 was the LEAST powerful of the big three that gen, not t...

    So, PS5 holiday 2020? I can see that.And it's telling that only 36.4 million PS4s are using Plus. Really explains why Sony hasn't abandoned the concept of compelling single player content. They und...
