Fez is premiering on the PS4?

Like, after already premiering on the 360, PC, and so on?

Vita memory card price drop is the best news to come out of this thing.

I might not be getting one at release but this is pretty sweet.

So many whiny Europeans complaining that information they already know isn't in a NEWS article whose entire point for existing is to inform.

You guys have a point I suppose, but chill the fuck out.

Yeah, I know the info now. But I didn't get it from the website I come to for gaming news, the website I have been sponsoring since 2010. I just feel like catering to the significant chunk of users who read this site from Europe shouldn't be that hard, in fact with the international audience they have it should be expected.

I just got disappointed. I came home from work and came directly to Giant Bomb to see what happened at the Sony thing only to find that the information I wanted wasn't here. Had to Google it.

It's not like information is hard to come by these days, but I feel a little alienated to be honest.

Just wanted to say that I'm taking Nov. 15th off from work to tune into whatever shenanigans GB gets up to on launch day and to set up my console. Looking forward to downloading patches and all day live streaming, make it happen.

@djou: Seconded. Hope it's an event to remember.

Looking good! I'm not in for day 1 omg must have naow just yet but these are all positive noises.

I was also one of the people wishing for a fantasy October release date just for my own selfish reasons. But now I can finally put my vacation time in for that week and go to the midnight release party at my GameStop. I can't wait!

Lame, but I also have a countdown on my phone going for it as well.

They need to put out a size bigger than 32gb or put out a firmware update that doesn't freak out if you try to swap cards while the system is on. I've passed on purchasing so many good PSN deals just because I didn't want to have to deal with that nonsense.

The price cut on the Vita is nice. I just wish there was something I wanted to play on it. If I have the choice between my giant television and a tiny handheld screen I will pick the TV every time. I understand that some people don't have the luxury of having a gaming PC or a television all the time. I just wish they would put out something that would interest me.

So is it confirmed that they dumped Ustream or are they just adding Twitch as another option?

#162 Posted by Rahvar (23 posts) -

While I'd rather have it release on the 15th here like in the U.S I'll look at it from the bright side.

This way I'll be able to gauge the games beforehand.

I pre-ordered my PS4 in February and Gamestop Sweden still hasn't announced any bundles.

I'll probably pick up the PS4 and an extra controller from Gamestop since I've paid more than the RRP for my PS4 in game trade-ins. I always read about the horrible amounts Americans get for games at Gamestop but here in Sweden they do run some great promotions. They are running this promotion where you trade in two games from a list and get 60 Euros worth of credit on a pre-order. Thing is that many of these games can be bought from non-specialized stores that carry games that just want to get rid of old stock at a cheap. I have about 450 Euros worth of store credit and I've paid about 200 euros of that by buying two games at 10 euros each for a 60 euro trade-in value.

Also, since I work for an electronics retailer who also carry games I can pick up any game from work cheaper than the Gamestop prices in case a specific game is sold out at Gamestop.

From the Playstation blog, emphasis mine:

That’s why we’re also happy to introduce our new partnership with the popular video platform Twitch, to give you another channel to livestream your gameplay to fellow gamers anywhere in the world.

#164 Posted by whatisdelicious (1216 posts) -

@sergio: Yeah that's what I thought but Patrick made it sound like they were just dumping Ustream in favor of Twitch.

#165 Posted by Sergio (2123 posts) -

@whatisdelicious: Yeah, unfortunately, Patrick's write-up is deficient in several areas.

#166 Posted by SomeJerk (3250 posts) -

@rahvar: and it's four days after November's payday for most of us, so that means we can buy an even larger package of PS4 games, and have a much easier time fitting a Vita into our budgets.

At least that's my scenario. Make those terrible two weeks easier..
As well I can remember waiting years for consoles to be released here in the past..

#167 Posted by Rahvar (23 posts) -

@SomeJerk yeah, pretty much all of Sweden gets paid on the 25th of each month. I think I'll pick up a,second controller, watch dovs and possibly Knack

12GB PS3 sounds SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT. I get they need a cheaper console for PS3 as they transition, but goddamn.

How much does a 250+ gig HD cost you?

I start to question the price of the 12gb PS3 package with the existence of the $299 PS3+GTA5+HD package, really.

#170 Edited by Rahvar (23 posts) -

45$ for a 320GB at newegg... Also Microsoft's cheapest model got 4GB

#171 Posted by Rahvar (23 posts) -

Almost forgot, you also get The Last of Us and Uncharted 3 in that bundle. Fantastic value if you don't have a PS3 or as a gidt

#172 Posted by theanticitizen (269 posts) -

Wait Fez will get it's console premier on PS4 first? Not on Xbox 360 where it's been for a year?

#173 Edited by jimmyfenix (3854 posts) -

Forgetting Europe Mr Klepek.

#174 Edited by Corvak (1075 posts) -

I dont quite understand the new PS3..but I guess theres a market for barebones systems, possibly to casual gamers? I

Buying a $299 bundle w/ HDD and a game is still cheaper, unless you never plan on getting an HDD as long as you own the console.

#175 Edited by Kagone (11 posts) -

@theanticitizen: (And, obviously, if it's already out, that's not true, either!)

Patrick already covered his bases.

It's probably aimed more at parents who'd rather get a cheaper console, don't care about downloading games (they probably don't even know you can), and don't want that satanic garbage GTA coming into their house to corrupt little Timmy.

It makes sense for casuals, but yeah, you or I would be much better off getting the GTA V bundle.

Patrick

No mention of Housemarques new game Resogun? It looks to be the spiritual successor to Super StarDust HD and looks good.

#180 Posted by Lord_Xp (602 posts) -

Even though the remote play looked awesome for Ps4 with Black Flag, I still don't want to buy a Vita. I just can't game a triple A game on such a small screen. I've never been a fan of hand held systems. Not since GameBoy Color with the arcade type games.

But I definitely like what you can do with it, there's no doubt about that.

Wish I had blind fanboism , sorry guys. I just can't get a Sony boner. This launch looks weak.
