Anyone watching the new Southparks? There's a 3 episode epic which is Game of Thrones meets the Console Wars. :lol:
We are alive, so the universe must be said to be alive. We are its consciousness as well as our own. We rise out of the cosmos and see its mesh of patterns, and it strikes us as beautiful. And that feeling is the most important thing in all the universe.

Oh yeah. I've to watch the last episode.

It'll have to wait for a couple of weeks. Too busy playing.

The console war is ideological construct in the first place but anyway ..

This next-gen is not only about eye candy as hardware alone can hardly produce "better" games especially if focus is on capabilities of hardware to handle visuals. If it was, we could say that the consoles fulfil their purpose and the launch titles reflect this aspect of next-gen nicely.

FIFA 14 might be "dumbed down", EA gave up on football manager sims recently, but it looks better in-game and elsewhere and it also plays better. It looks more like football and it plays more like one. Animations, ball physics, replays .. very nice, very fun.

Ryse, eye candy. Its not even game ..! Not sure about that, but it shows capabilities of the box nicely. I am in the movie matrix and I cite latin poetry. Right.

Forza 5 .. I dunno what to say. Looks amazing, micro macro multi .. just, Jesus, bring me this: http://www.thrustmaster.com/en_US/produ ... ia-edition .. Jesus loves me this I know.

AC4 downloading ..

So beyond eye candy, we can frown upon yet desire at the same time, there is added value in next-gen. This value makes the boxes better by hardware necessarily. Upload and share functions, constant switching, multitasking, streaming, communication in general, remote applications, cloud or yes . .. TV. The value is there whether we like it or not, and lets be honest, in the context of today's world it has to be there.

Just tell me this, geniuses, from MS. Who the fuck has satellite or cable box? One box too many. Every decent TV has one build in. So how about, incorporating tuner into your box? Solution to fit all. Too expensive, complicated? Let me see the numbers because lets not forget your box competes with Smart TVs and media players and centres so I am really curious how many people, couple of months and years from now, will keep their satellite or cable box just to connect it through your fucking HDMI to see Full HD stuff. So maybe, instead of gimmicks though its cool, do something functional. And don't call me.

So hows Play Station? 4

Been playing indie freebie Resogun all day. It's brilliant, ol' school R-Type type game except with ridiculous particle and destruction effects.
Free on PS Plus for all of December. Be sure to download it.

The only deal I can see for one of these consoles is £20 off the usual rate of £349 Stirling, using a certain cell/mobile app. How are the prices in your area?

I don't think it is worth my while getting one to be fair, not yet anyway. Gaming with this has got to be enhanced online, and my only router is a 'phone, i'm not cabled in at all. I intend to move home, yet again, later this year and it costs too much to get a line in (telecoms always seem to ask for a one-off premium for connection).

I'll be gaming 6 months after you've all gotten bored of CoD12 :(

A Dollar-Quid a day would have covered it I guess.

This is what I've been waiting for.

Sony Reveals its Streaming Service: PlayStation Now
Experience "classic" PlayStation games on PS4 and Vita... and your TV, smartphone, and tablet, too!

http://uk.ign.com/articles/2014/01/07/sony-reveals-its-streaming-service-playstation-now


Looks like I'll have to continue waiting for it.

Unbelievable thieving turds! I spotted a second-hand PS4 in an exchange shop with a price tag of £439! I told the shopkeep that it was £90 more than buying it brand new, "yeh, but this one's got FIFA 14 innit". I tell him that a new console bundled with this crap game is still £50 cheaper than his and he just stares at me.
Idiot.

Well, it's considered to be a spiritual sequel to ICO. Also, a new SotC would make it a series, technically.

Though I was just making the point that some beloved old franchised will probably get milked, so I picked a fan-favourite IP held by Sony at random.
