It's precisely what Youtube is for. Niche video.

I remember watching Gamesmaster and Bad Influence and thinking it'd be great if there were a lot more shows like them. Now we have online video we're getting this, and best of all I can pick and choose which bits I follow rather than being stuck with just one show per week.

I feel quite proud that the mighty numbnuts Kernow, takes time out in his obviously immensely important and busy life, to make reference to my exploits on YT.

In fact.... I'm going to dedicate the next video to Kernow! It will be entitled "Virtual world miserable **** - the life of a manic depressive".

Thanks for YOUR inspiration Kernow!




Back to the PS4:
I think the E3 updates have perhaps made it 2-0 to Sony - could this be the glory days of Sony back again! :awe:

I think the crowd were a little bit pleased by Sony's announcement...

I mentioned this before but I have friends who work at Sony's London base, and in a recent conversation with someone higher up the ladder there, he told me that universally (across all Sony offices and chains of command who work on Playstation) Sony have been working really hard to address and fully understand the issues with the PS3 to ensure everyone in the company knows about mistakes made, so that for the PS4 the company is more united in its direction to aim to please/meet the needs of the user. But also, what I really liked in the conversation was that the words "hardcore gamer" were mentioned frequently. I think that there is lots of promise with the PS4 for sure.

i can only devote my time to one console this Christmas and before the announcement, I was looking more towards the PS4 but now, I am 100% onboard with it.

And I think its looks good.

being from Liverpool I know a few people from a few levels of Sony (a few of them are over in LA now) and this is pretty much their mantra right now.

Even if Microsoft abandon all their negative elements, I'm still going PS4 only. They tried to screw their customers. There is no going back to that.

not that I can talk about on an open forum no. :P

the operating system for one was a huge step for them since PS2/3 has never been an easy platform to develop for. That scares away a lot of the smaller niche studios. Sony are very proud of this fact.

Although I am really not happy with their decisions and will boycott the Xbox One myself, I can see that there is an element of helping the developers in regards to the game fees. The smaller studios will benefit greatly from the extra profits and it may help keep them afloat. Alas, this will also allow the EA's of the world to continue to rape us.
Let us not forget that Steam implemented similar DRM for PC users many years ago and doesn't even allow game transfers.

Still, the privacy concerns with Kinect 2, the always on connection and the 24 hour authentication are simply absurd and I think they may back track a little after Sony's news.

lets hope that hardcore gamer will have nothing to do with fifa type games and get back to decent different type games ,also no more call of duties either :problem:
ms = aimed at a general audience to control the sitting room why not use a different device ,i cant see none gamers being too interested at that price
ps =price seems good and the talk so far is all good and it seems to be a games machine :awe: :thumbsup:

wii u= will probably drop price closer to the time of the release of these and regain some market .....i still want one for the maybe 1/2 games ..

Yeah it's all moving to user rights on account instead of disk. That goes for all media. Sony are just taking their free punch by moving to it slower. Who can blame them? It's like Google hyping Flash as an Android selling point after Apple scrapped it.

Eventually it won't seem so bad when it does. It's worked pretty well (eventually) elsewhere.

"Hardcore gamer" is meaningless nonsense. What does it mean? You've played all the COD and GTA games to death? That's why I'm interested in what Sony actually intends to change because statements like "do more for the hardcore gamer" just sound like marketing drivel.

Developer accessibility is a big one. Entry needs to be about a hundred times cheaper for starters.

...

The only "big" games I have even a passing interest in are from Nintendo. You know, that videogame company.

I understand. I am cheering for the freedom more than saving money. I buy new 99% of the time anyway. But at the end of day, I'd like my purchases to be worth something in the end.
