@panelhopper: Well the fact that the PS4, and Xbox 360, are on x86 architecture makes this a bit less likely in my opinion. The architectures aren't as constrictive as the last gen, especially in regards to the PS3.

@brodehouse

Was that listed under the features you get for PS+?

Sorry, I'm seriously not trying to come off as hostile. I'm trying to make a point. The way we consume things is fucked. The money gets handed over first and then consumers get mad because they expected it to do whatever they wanted rather than what it actually promises it does.

I agree with you. People seem to think that they should be getting more everything for what little they pay for things.

First new game I bought for my Xbone was Sunset; its OK. I won't rave about the game because I think it makes some major missteps, but it lays the ground for something really cool that I hope they expound upon in a sequel. I don't think a trick system would have done anything positive for that game as it doesn't fully realize the systems it already has. This is probably one of the weakest selection of weapons that this developer has put together in recent memory. I cannot say I had fun shooting any weapon specifically; it was all just a matter of "well this weapon works best...whatever". Still, I like the game I just think its more a case of "should have been way better". Definitely not top 10 of the year for me, at all (still better than Destiny ;p) .

@kmg90: yeah, I've used it on the PC before but found the quality of the mic was really spotty compared to what it sounds like on the PS4. I used it during my 24 livestream and when going back to do some editing of the archive I noticed the mic sounded bad for some reason.

On PS4 I have been using their Gold branded headset and I really like it. On PC I was using a nice pair of wireless Logitech's, but those broke :( Might get a new pair with my tax return.

This year would have been my year for PAX, but sadly it was not. I WILL be going in 2016, even if I have to go up there by myself.

@mbradley1992: I sometimes do but PC games are cheaper far sooner and depending on the game I can or cannot wait. If its a game like, say, Last of Us then I don't feel like waiting potentially 3 months or more and have major plot points spoiled from any number of sources or people. Green Man Gaming has games on sale for as much as 40% off before the game even comes out. That does not happen on consoles ever. Recent example? I bought the Wildstar special edition for $45 on GMG several months before it was even released. Even when games are digital and on sale through consoles they very rarely ever go on sale cheaper than they do at a brick and mortar when on sale. No one said I cannot wait, only that they don't want to.

I never have to wait 6 months for a PC game I want to be on sale. I typically can get it $20-30 off within the first month or month and a half.

@mbradley1992: No, you actually did so let me c/p it so you can:

Not so much because retail shifted away from most physical media in the form of PC sales. My Best Buy has a few and I think my local Gamestop has a single 12 inch shelf for physical PC games. Me buying digital primarily was forced more than anything. I've adjusted my PC purchases accordingly. I purchased 1 physical PC game in the last 2 years and that was the Warlords of Draenor expansion special edition for my wife. Selling PC games prior to the more digital trend was still tricky in some cases because of needing to register serial keys. Sometimes it was an issue, sometimes it was not. With PC games predominantly being digital it has become a non-issue no matter what I would like to do.

@thehbk: The developer does not get $60, the publisher gets that money. The developer gets whatever they were paid, originally, by the publisher. They may also get a bonus depending on how well the game sold, but they aren't getting paid for each game directly. I mean, I see what you are trying to argue, but unfortunately that's not how the retail process works unless the developer is self publishing. They make a deal, they get paid, they sometimes get a bonus, and that's all.

This whole license crap is the problem and I'm really surprised that someone's actually making that argument in 2015...I mean, unless I am talking to an EA or Activision employee...which in that case, if I am...

@agentboolen: My wife used to be like that. We've been married for over 4 years now, so she's gotten pretty good at it. I think it really happened because of how much she loved Dance Central on the 360. She was always going to it or Netflix when I was at work.

@mbradley1992 You should see what I said to someone else who thought they had an, "AHA! I CAUGHT YOU!" moment with something I said. With PC games its not really an option as most games do not get released in a widespread manner physically. Best Buy has an extremely small section and Gamestop's section is just a fraction of even that. Full remarks I made can be found on Page 1...
