WOW! Sony just won E3 by just saying no-DRM and $399 Smile
Gaming wise the presentation was kind of boring I think…

- Elder Scrolls MMO. Meh.
- Mad Max. didn’t show much apart from a cgi video.

- NO DRM. Screw you Microsoft. Gets a huge cheer.
- No online connection or periodic check
- PS plus membership to carry over
- Oh they just tried to hide the fact that multiplayer on the PS4 is going behind the pay wall.
- Drive Club free on PS4 on Plus at launch

- Destiny gameplay premier. actually looks pretty decent. showing gunplay and some kind of magic system. loot drops and skill trees. Return of the Jedi Speeders and giant alien drop ships. Cool.

- $399 €399 £329
- This holiday season. Bummer no month of release.

     

An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.

FinalFantasy versus XIII is now XV, Renamed , it was rumored too weeks back.
And it wasn’t all CG. But man that footage floored me. Simply the best thing out of
the whole E3.

Order looks freaking cool, the designs and feel, Reminded me of VampireHunter D:Bloodlust anime intro.

Add yes with no DRM and Pricepoint , PS4 is clear winner.

Sony: It started out pretty lackluster but ended amazingly. Best of E3. I just wish Sony had a exclusive game or two more up their sleeve - like a new Uncharted god dammit.

I don’t care about payed multiplayer. 5 dollars a month for PlayStation Plus is not bad at all - remember you’re also getting exclusive deals, FREE games on all three platforms each month and cloud storage among other things. Multiplayer is costing Sony (and for that matter Microsoft) money, so it’s only fair that people interested in multiplayer needs to pony up some cash.

Hopefully E3 isn’t the end of new game announcements for PS4 concerning the launch of the system. After Vita had such a sweet launch line-up I was hoping it’d be the same for PS4.

Trailer, looks bad and filler cash-in.


So i will align ps4 release with Witcher3 and SecondSon release around July/August next year.

Qdream will take atleast 2015 to release their game, same for The Order.
FFXV is just another promise with no firm date and platform.
No interest in Launch lineup.


Hoping Lastguardian at TGS, with release date.

The new Abe Escape remake looks fantastic - a must buy. Watch_Dogs and Assassin’s Creed IV also look great. Would be my very first AC ever!

I’m also still really psyched about Deep Down from Capcom and Knack.

However, I’m very disappointed that Final Fantasy Versus XIII turned into Final Fantasy XV. I have zero interest in that game - the gameplay is pure action, which is not what I want out of a Final Fantasy. Why can’t they just revert back to a system similar to Final Fantasy X? That HD-rerelease has me extremely excited.

The Sony conference was slow at first but picked up with interesting games and finally climaxed with allowing used games and that wonderful price.

Still, they were very clever to gloss over the fact that you will need to be subscribed to PS+ in order to play any games online. I never needed PS+. I collect games so my library is big enough without needing those free games on offer from PS+ (those free games that stop working if you don’t keep paying your monthly subscription).

Kingdom Hearts 3 is a huge draw card though. To paraphrase a post in another thread, I love all that “kiddie anime”. Still, it’s a shame we didn’t hear anything about The Last Guardian or Yu Suzuki’s attempt to revive Shenmue… That would have made a killer launch title.

Bring on Nintendo Direct!

thejobloshow: I don’t get the complaint some people have with games being unavailable for download if you stop paying for the service. How is that any different from subscribing to Netflix or a tv cable service? Or any number of other service systems.

PS+ is great man , like i missed on VirtueLastReward and and they are giving it for free
for vita but i don thave vita lol. The free instant game collection alone
worth yearly subscription which dont require monthly payment , it just needs
yearly reactivation atleast on ps3 and that will continue on ps4.
Which is to say i am getting Driveclub free.


I am bit disspointed that PS3 has no Exclusive next year, i think
Lastguardian no show at TGS will hurt more than now. Its good to save
announcements.

In case any one is confused on how lending games out works on the ps4:

Seriously though, Most of what was shown in the Sony conference will be out for MS too. The biggest difference is their attitude to the consumers and the price. Sony is looking mighty good at the moment.

     

Recently completed: Game of Thrones (decent), Tales from the borderlands (great!), Life is Strange (great!), Stasis (good), Annas Quest (great!); Broken Age (poor)

Bungie’s Destiny looked pretty nice. Bungie has always made some of the only shooters I’ve liked… I’m just worried about the multiplayer element - first of all does it need to be always connected online (or in other words does it have single player and what type is it) and especially if it needs the online subscription (since both consoles now have a fee that I’ll probably not be paying for) to play.

I mean, I prefer single player to multiplayer so I’m not that interested in the multiplayer missions - and I really prefer playing multiplayer with friends than with strangers (‘cause if it’s teamwork, you know lik 70% will just be going solo, plus it’s just weird Tongue). And I don’t have crazy amounts of time to keep playing online to stay up to everything that’s going on…

But if it’s all implemented well - in that it’s like a single player, except the other multiplayer players are just there (in a sense, it’s difficult to explain), this could be one of the most exciting shooters out there. Then it would also have to require to be playable also with the “silver” accounts, and with a mediocre wifi connection.

Anyway, I’m excited about Destiny.

I just don’t like how people say you get “free games” when you sign up to PS+, it’s misleading.

Glad to hear that it’s region free - there’a no doubt I’ll be purchasing a PS4 along with PS+, I’ll just grin and bear it.

EDIT:

Looks like M$ has trolled Killerinstinct fans, its F2P fighter Frown

Destructoid confirmed in this Killer Instinct preview, that while the fighter is free to all, you have to pay individually for new and returning characters. That’s a payment per character, but the specific cost has not been confirmed, so don’t start worrying just yet, as they could be dirt cheap.
