XB4?  no regional right mgmt? no problems.
I've noticed that Japan is not one of the 21 launch countries. That's significant because Japan is one of the major regions when it comes to games. I'm guessing Microsoft is still having trouble getting Japanese developers to develop for their console, not to mention getting Japanese gamers to buy their console.

It's just like Korea and apple products.

What's really odd is that they seem to be buddies with Konami now despite this. I don't get it.

 

CDPR(The Witcher 3) isn't too happy with them. They probably signed a bunch of contracts and whatnot and didn't find out until after the fact that they couldn't play it in Poland.

Microsoft is just talking up their asses... No more support from me. I have never seen so many things going wrong in such a short period of time.

Also, there is still the fact that PS4 will have a noticeably advantage in raw (developer friendly) power

I'm glad that both consoles are using relatively similar parts; hopefully we wont get anymore unfathomably bad ports.

The best port was Ghostbusters. The devs were talking up the PS3 version, saying it's CPU was so power, how the system was so easy to develop for, and that it was the lead platform, then it came out and the PS3 version was utter trash.

 

 

 

Of course, you can't talk about crap ports without mentioning Skyrim. Considering how late in the PS3's life it released, it might be the most embarrassing port. This was also another case of the developers talking about how easy to develop for the PS3 was.

More about The Witcher 3 ordeal: http://kotaku.com/the-witchers-anti-drm-studio-finds-itself-in-a-bind-wi-513296668

 

They're still releasing it for Xbox One, as they don't want to punish the people who choose it as their platform.

PS4 also is for me, more aesthetically pleasing than the XBOX.

But then again.... I think of Halo and I start swaying.... Someone snap me back into sense please.

PC will always be my preferred gaming option but I will probably pick up both consoles at some stage. I'll probably get the Xbox One first just for Forza 5, nothing on the PS4 launch list is really jumping at me.

Not yet but according to Sony there will be over 20 exclusive games, over 40 games with exclusive content and over 150 games overall. All that in the 1st year... Will probably beat the XONE in the exclusives count alone.

Those 20 exclusive games are just the 1st party exclusives too.

 

I'm guessing they just didn't reveal a lot of their games at E3 because they just needed the no DRM sucker punch to get ahead by a mile.

I would guess so...

It is also nice that I can play my games ANYWHERE for a hundred less...

Another nice thing is that as Mark Cerny stated, Sony will basically have dedicated pieces of hardware for anything, including sound decompression and such, so here is hoping we can actually get some sort of sonic improvement out of the new generation console...

Here is hoping that PS4 actually uses some decent parts for sound rolleyes.gif

Anyone excited for the 1886 The order for the PS4, an third person action adventure game set in 1886 steampunk England? On release with the PS4; I'm not preordering it...as games have had a tendency to just be terrible lately...BUT I'm keeping an eye on it.
