Phantom Pain looks amazing, easily my favorite of the MS conference. There were some pretty solid exclusives shown and overall a lot of games that I want to play. 500 dollars is a bit steep though, so I definitely won't be there on day one. But man...sooner or later I'm going to need Dead Rising 3.
Not bad considering I was pretty much decided on a PS4 before the conference. I'll own both eventually but which one to get first is back to being a tough decision. Bring on the Sony conference!
I think I'm one of the few die hard Metal Gear fans that isn't at all bothered by the change. Love my man Hayter but it's not like he's going to be out on the streets now. Plus if you're going to replace him, Kiefer Sutherland is a pretty damn good choice.
I was already leaning slightly toward the PS4 due to the GDDR5 but man, if it has a more powerful GPU on top of that my choice is all but made. It's obviously not just about raw power but bottlenecks and development difficulty as well, and it looks like PS4 is better than Xbox One in all three regards.
Sure the PS4 conference had games...but the only interesting ones for me were obvious third party titles that will be available on all systems. We still don't even know the price, release date, or launch titles of either system and people are already comfortable choosing which one they want? Seems weird to me.
I feel like I won't know which one I want until a good 6 months into their lifespan. I want people to have time to dissect the architecture of both machines and find out if one provides significant performance abilities over the other, etc. Also by that time the game catalogues will be a little more fleshed out.
I hope you appreciate how ironic it is that you're telling people to calm down by flying off the handle with a long, expletive laden post about "how fucking stupid" people that don't share your optimism are acting. But, seeing your liberal use of the word "fuck" I highly doubt subtleties are your specialty.
