Thief 1 and 2 did not have the greatest editor but the community was able to create great mods/levels up to this day. Will the new Thief have an editor?

I just want a machine that has good games, that's why I'm sticking with my 360 and Ps3 for now!

5. It costs too much. 4. It's underpowered. 3. It is a cable box that plays video games. 2. It spies on you. 1. It sends pictures of your junk right to Bill Gates' desk so he has wanking material.

Why is GS deleting my comments pointing out the true meaning of "Joy Division"? Is GS anti-Semitic?

You mods are pocket deep in M$ aren't ya?

Microsoft bans users for expressing themselves over Skype or upload videos with any amount of swear words whether used as a positive or negative context.

This message will self destruct in as fast as whoever censored my last post sees this.

Also, screw that person you had no proper legitimate reason to delete that post. Damn commie

PSN also banned people when fondling girlfriends over playroom. Apparently the problem is widespread among PSN users. Both companies have a right to ban you for doing some obscene things. It's DOESN'T belong.

@sammoth You're talking about people uploading videos of themselves. I'm talking about free services like Skype chat which you use to talk to people PRIVATELY as well as Let's Play's that record ONLY THE GAME with VOICE and no video of players fornicating.

THOSE ARE TWO TOTALLY DIFFERENT things. So NO THEY DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO BAN YOU OVER A SIMPLE SWEAR THAT WASN'T USED AS A NEGATIVE TOWARDS ANY PLAYERS.

NO THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO LISTEN IN TO OUR CONVERSATIONS WITH FRIENDS WHICH IS *PRIVATE* AND BAN USERS.

NO Sammoth. No!

That type of poor complacency and want to censor people just because you're too immature when you overhear someone else saying a swear word that doesn't pertain to any individual but expressing their enjoyment in something of what took place in a game is exactly why America is going to shits.

NO I say. NO!

IT'S NOT F*CKING RIGHT!

I agree that it is wrong that they would censor Skype calls in the first place, but saying that Microsoft doesn't have the right to do so is also wrong. You are apparently forgetting that Xbox Live is a subscription that you agree to pay for. Not Microsoft, you. They set the Terms of Use, and if you do not like them, well...tough shit. It is akin to a restaurant owner kicking someone out of their restaurant because they do not like the way they look or the way they behave. It may seem wrong in some instances, but the restaurant owner is fully within his or her rights to do that.

Xbox One doesn't allow free speech even when on Skype with a friend, they screen your call and ban you from Skype and you upload anything to Skydrive you will also be banned if you use any amount of swear words.

Have fun complacent idiots who love supporting companies that companies that give you less and less till you have no rights left even outside your gaming room.

Enjoy your BUY FIRST THEN FORCED CONTRACTUAL AGREEMENTS LATER consoles.

Buy a PC. For the price of $560+Tax you could already build yourself a system on newegg dot com that exceeds this DRM filled flip-flopper of a console from one of America's most notorious haters of free speech next to google.

Don't let companies get away with stripping your rights of free speech. Don't let companies treat you like lambs. Spread this or any video that shares awareness to these attacks on freedom and forced contracts you sign on to after being tricked to buy it without being told what you're truly getting into.

@MrMan2000 Videos are not that bad. Some people don't have time to read articles.

@MadelaineDuhh @MrMan2000 My problem with the videos is they take too long. It's quicker to read the article. Unless you're slow.

Sigh.

I remember when I could go to the Gamespot site and actually READ the articles. Now I'm bombarded with endless videos. I can only surmise they believe their audience prefers watching / listening to reading....but not me. Since the "update" and the migration to virtually all video / zero articles I find this site almost useless.

@MrMan2000 I haven't even been able to watch the videos yet. The new upgrade to their site is very poorly done. I have a 2 year old computer (which every half wit web designer should aim for when designing a new web site). So Game Spot has been off my regular stops for video game info for the past 3 months. Also you cannot watch videos on a Subway, in a cafe or anywhere in public without headphones, which always sucks. I vote IGN on the goto for games.

everyone is sounding so stupid with these fanboy comments,

if you purchased one over the other, that means u prefer that particular console, and thats it,,,

end of the day, both are great, it just depends on what u feel u will have more fun with.,,,


stop trying to make your purchase justified by slaming the competing product, imagine the ps4 had no competition, or the xbox one had no comeptition, neither console would be as good..

we have two great new consoles with great games and great graphics,, just enjoy them for gods sakes,,


also, fanboys talking about superior graphics,, go buy a pc,,

The only thing I really want to know about the Xbox One right now is: are there going to be extension cables for the Kinect module? A lot of people need more than 10'.

@nparks wtf are you talking about ?what you got you kinect in the garage or something?or maybe you want it long so you can hide it some were in you sister room or you mom room and spy on them you sick ****

Ahh..look at all the sony fanboys. Still calling it a spybox even though the kinect never has to be plugged in? Thats cute. Inferior hardware? Perhaps on paper, debatable in real life. Take ANY game and the x1 version will have better textures and brighter colors. PS4 games seem washed and and at times blurry. Not to mention PS4 COD is having framerate problems while the x1 is not. I've played the ps4 and x1 and would much rather keep playing the x1.

Honestly stop living in a dream world. Digital Foundry did comparisons of all multiplats. AC4,BF4 and Cod all look better on the PS4. The Xone has its advantages but graphics and performance isn't one of them.

@AM-Gamer Oh really! To me, AC4 looks better on the Xbox One. Must admit, that is from in-game screenshots comparing AC4 on PS4 to X1.

My opinion doesn't really matter to you, but suck it up, you just read it :)

@AM-Gamer Talk shit BF4 looks better on Xbox One than it dose on the PS4 not only has Dice already confirmed it but look up youtube videos of the comparisons of BF4, it has a better frame rate it has better draw distance it has better colors and it also has better textures on the Xbox One, your in denial, u can also see this comparisons on the EU game website where the X1 is the clear winner.

@jayjay444 not really interested in either of these consoles but i'd like to point out an ACTUAL FACT... BF4 on Xbox1 runs at 50fps 720p and on PS4 at 60fps 900p

Avatar image for DVONvX
DVONvX

@AM-Gamer I've seen them, and ps4 looks sharper but also loses color and appears blurry. Digital foundry just put up a comparison of FIFA and you can instantly tell that the x1 has better colors, and once again the screenshots of the ps4 appear blurry in places where the x1 appears sharper. The ps4 is not doing native 1080p without some graphical shortcuts.

@Sky_Stifler You do realize that your cell phone and anything else connected to the internet in your home can be monitored? Why do you somehow think Sony is exempt? Their security has been breached and millions of users have been comprised before. Please think before you troll.
