Not surprising. Saw a live stream on twitch and it looked terrible. Shame since the game looks like a lot of fun.

Wow, kind of hard to figure out where to start with this one. Let's start with "I'm an Xbox fanboy". Well, you just undercut your entire argument by stating that you having an irrational admiration for the company your about to defend and I now have to take everything you say with a grain of salt because you will more than likely deliberately paint a scenario that makes MS look better than they actually are (some people call that lying, but I'm trying to be nice and give you the benefit of the doubt).

"Some people still have flies stuck to their faces in third world countries." This line right here is kind of crazy if you think about it. How does this justify them putting this kind of a system out? People in developing nations are poor so it totally makes sense to design a console that they won't ever be able to use? How does that make any sense if your trying to run a profitable business? How is it good business sense to limit how many potential customers you could possibly have?

"Imagine a world where someone goes to buy one console and one specific game for their child. They walk into a store and see two consoles (PS4 and Xbox). The game they want is Star Wars Battlefront (for example). Now, they see it’s available for Xbox One because there is disc on the shelf. They see that it isn't available for PS4 because there isn't a disc anywhere on the shelf. EA has since decided to stop printing discs for PS4. Why? Simple: Programmers don’t want to optimize their games to function with spinning discs, and publishers are losing money left and right with trading and pirated games. It is a no-brainer to print games on Xbox One because it is safe, secure, and profitable. Not so much on PS4."

Huh? This is completely baffling. First, programming doesn't work that way. You program the game, then you decide how its going to be distributed. Deciding whether to print discs or not doesn't factor into how the game is coded. Second, if there was disced version for xbox then there's probably a disced version for the ps4 why? Because EA wants to make money. EA publishes on everything because they want to make MONEY period. If their is a significant install base on the ps4 (and there will be) it make no financial sense for then not to make discs for the ps4 since they would already be making discs anyway for Xb One. Third, publishers may be losing money from trade ins but they need to incentivise consumers to not trade it in, not create a system that takes away my right to do whatever I want with something I've already paid for. Forth, how would you even know if the XB One is safe, secure, or profitable at this point? It hasn't even come out yet. 360 servers have gone down before and we all remember the psn hack so for the life of me I cannot understand how anyone could think that any of these platforms are secure and nothing will happen to them. Nothing is completely secure and everytime you put your information online, you run the risk of someone stealing it.

"So, that person buys Xbox One and Star Wars Battlefront thinking that it is an exclusive, unknowing that it is, in fact, available on PS4 via download.

Microsoft is setting themselves up to win the digital future, and ironically, they will accomplish this feat through RETAIL. Sony may be chuckling now, but I believe Microsoft will have the last laugh. As they say, "It is not a sprint."

Sony fanboys can’t trade games, if there aren't any [to trade]. And without the flexible DRM that Microsoft is inventing, they will be stuck with a hard drive full of games they can’t trade or share. [Granted, Sony is zipped-lip on DRM talk.]"


You do realize that Sony has streaming and cloud technology as well right? They bought Gaikai and are going to use it with the ps4 so no they're not going to be left behind. They will have cloud services available just like Xbox will, they just aren't taking away our rights to implement these services like Xbox is trying to.

Everything you described makes me more interested in the game, not less so I'll guess I'll give it a try. I'm of a mind that storytelling, visuals, art direction are just as much gameplay mechanics and combat and exploration so I think this is right up my alley.

Wow that actually looks like fun instead the somewhat boring experience DS3 turned out to be. Too bad its at the end of a game you have to pay $60 for first to get it.

Wait there's only 4 maps? I thought the whole point of this thing was the multiplayer(at least that's the impression I got from all of the trailers and such) and they only have 4 maps? That's kind of a bummer if you were looking forward to this.

It's not just that.

As far as I understand it the dedicated servers that Gears 3 had, are now being used for Judgement solely. That means Gears 3 doesn't run on dedicated servers anymore which was a huge bonus.

Essentially, you're trading in a great multiplayer experience in Gears 3 in for a multiplayer component short on content in Judgement. You can continue playing Gears 3 without dedicated servers, but allot of people don't like that.

Wow gears had dedicated servers? I'm not a big gears fans (but try to follow the news surrounding it) but that's pretty messed up if your big into playing gears and don't wanna buy judgement. Your basically stuck playing gears3 in an inferior way and its being supplanted by an inferior product.

Wow Jeff must really not like Crysis. Asking questions like why should this game exist is usually reserved for the A:CM's of the world.

Jeff explained the fact that you kill lots of people very well on the bombcast. She has no other choice its kill or be killed. In that situation there are 2 kinds of people, those who get caught/killed in 5 minutes or those who make it to the end of the game. If the character was the former then it would be a short game. If she was scared to kill people the whole game that would be incredibly boring. I think that aspect of Brad's review is a bit off but other than that it sounds good.

I think there's a difference between killing a few guys because you have to and killing hundreds of dudes for really no reason. They could've had it so where you only face a few guys at a time and you have to use your smarts/environment, whatever weapon you can string together to survive. If its uncharted and I have essentially unlimited ammo and I'm mowing down guys left and right, it kind of breaks the survival part of the game they've been talking up so much.

Hopefully someone picks up darksiders. Those games were great. Same goes for red faction.

So its a mmofps like planetside 2 but on consoles except they don't wanna call it that b/c dudebros don't like mmos is what i'm taking from it. And no gameplay whatsoever? Lame. Gameplay or gfto. Yeah the concept art looks nice and all but i really want to see what it plays like and how everything works. It also sounds like its not gonna be on this generation. I mean, maybe they will put out on ps3 and 360 but will they actually support it especially if most people play on ps4/durango. Also not on pc? It seems like this game is made for the pc so its odd that its not going to be on the pc.
