PlayStation Plus memberships are up more than 200% since the launch of PlayStation 4"

Funny how that happens when you make PS+ a requirement for multiplayer games.

It's more as my lazy man second copy. It might end up inspiring me to do another run as a spell caster though.

That might not be a good idea given that it's apparently an unpatched (and currently unpatchable) version of the game, which means the online features are disabled because it's not the most recent version. Rumor is that From Software didn't want to deal with the strain of having a ton of new players jumping onto their servers playing the first Dark Souls instead of DS2.

I don't know how true that is. Bandai Namco made a statement on their support page saying they're aware of the issue and has notified people that might be able to fix it, but then Bandai Namco isn't From Software and might not be aware of any stipulations that may have been involved.

I feel like there should have been a mention of how Precursor Games was letting their community do a lot of the work on the game for them according to an episode of Weekend Confirmed a while back. Which sounded super shady to me also.

I'm assuming that's still happening now, even though it's being kickstarted again. This whole thing is just an insane mess.

@clonedzero: if there's a flood or storm bad enough to knock out your local server farm then gaming probably should be the least of your concerns.

I'd like to think that if a dev thinks they can make the game better by using the extra servers then they'll make use of them.

@toowalrus: ps4 has gaikai, don't count them out on cloud stuff if thats what your thinking.

Besides jeff has said all that cloud stuff is just more for server side tech than anything else.

Gaikai isn't at all the same thing that the Xbox One cloud is. Gaikai is On Live. It's streaming Ps3 games to your Ps4.

The Xbox One cloud service is for anything the devs can think to use it for. That could be storage for updates, dedicated servers for multiplayer, or like in Titanfall, it can be used to process elements of gameplay (Titanfall runs all of the AI on the servers).

I'm not sure what you thought "The Cloud" was, but it's always been a term used to describe a server farm that you connect to off site.

I don't know if I hate DRM more than Pussy-Footed Back Peddling...

Or you know, you could admit that you don't want to like anything they do, and your mind was already made up. They could give their games away for free and you'd Question Their Motives

Good job guys, you've managed to kill a lot of interesting things about the Xbox One. Now the disk is required to play games you bought on disk, which means you can't instantly switch to any game you get an invite to unless you bought it digitally. It also means you can't take your entire game collection with you to any Xbox One you signed into your account on, and no 10 member family account plan either. No household family has 10 people in it, this was obviously their quiet answer to being able to lend games to your friends.

The lack of a training mode really confuses me. As someone who hasn't really played much Tekken going into this game, I just sort of picked a character more or less at random.

I feel there needs to be either a training mode, or the arcade mode should be unlimited, if they wanted to encourage online play, just make it so you don't get any xp from arcade mode.
