@ZeD

And I buy MLB every year. I get why Activision does it and more power to them, when a game sells 20 mil+ every year you can't really say 'sorry, no Call of Duty this year.' If the series ever loses its popularity that's probably when it'll take a break but I don't see sales falling off a cliff any time soon.

@JaxonH

Yeah, there's no reason to hate CoD, I just don't think there's any reason to get too hyped either. The original Modern Warfare was a game-changer, since then though the series hasn't really changed too much. Granted it doesn't have to, it still sells, I'd say it's still well made, but you know what you're getting.

The only bit of interesting news surrounding CoD would be if Sony did secure the timed-exclusive dlc first. Other than that, I'm sure this will be the same by the numbers FPS it always is. Not necessarily a bad thing but nothing worth getting hyped about.

@adf86

Child of Light is one of those downloadable games that looks interesting. That and Transistor are two of the indies I have my eyes on. Anybody who is 100% against indie games does leave open the possibility to miss some real gems. I think when people criticize them it's more because they're frustrated with the complete lack of balance right now. Obviously that will change over time, but I understand the frustration some people currently have because I'm right there with them.

I know who it was aimed at, and I didn't think my response was that bad, I've had discussions with adf on here before and none of them have turned unfriendly so I wouldn't expect his response, if he makes to my last comment, would make this take a turn for the worse.

@DaftPlayStation

I guess you could call it a pessimistic point of view but I'm not going to be positive just to get some people I don't know and will never meet to like me. If you have such a problem with my what I post and my 'pessimistic' attitude go ahead and report every comment I make. Then you can get your wish and I'll be banned. :) My view of the PS4 will not change any time soon it looks like as, imo, 2014 is a barren wasteland, so don't really know what else to tell you. Unfortunately there's no ignore button on this website like Gamespot used to have, that would solve a lot of problems.

Don't need to take the veiled shots, go ahead and use my username. I never once said indie games don't count, but they don't carry the same weight for me that the bigger productions do. Sorry my preference of games is not the same as yours but whatever. You like indie games, don't know how you feel about late PS3 ports but if you like those too, great. I'll buy the really good indie games that come out but the ones I enjoy are few and far between. I'm not giving any of these companies any more money for 'remasters.' So, for me, aside from Batman: Arkham Knight this entire first year is looking like a wasteland. And the games I'd normally be interested in either have the developer forcing you to connect online to play its game or are huge question marks as far as the overall quality of the game is concerned. So I've pretty much written 2014 off. Hopefully 2015 will be better.

@rjejr

Sony is winning the race right now, by a wide margin, so I have to give it that it must be doing something right. Looking around the comment sections, I'm in the vast minority of people who don't care for ports. I just find it funny that people were slamming Nintendo for ports but when Sony has a similar terrible first year lineup for the PS4 it's ok because we get 'remasters' like TLoU. It is what it is. I'm just hoping 3 years down the line that I'll be able to forget all about the slow start because I'm convinced at this point it's 2016 before this piece of sh*t is more than a doorstop. Sony claims it has a great E3 lineup, but Sony's idea of great and mine have not aligned in recent months. If it's ports and indie games, that's not exactly what I'd call stellar.

@banacheck

There have been rumors in the past of a reboot for the entire RE franchise. I'd be all for that if Capcom put the right dev team together. Just call the next game 'Resident Evil' go back to survival/horror and pretend RE 1-6 don't exist. Worked for Tomb Raider.

Gamer83 commented on This Input Code Adds Credence to the PS4 Port ...:

@DaftPlayStation

Of course it's my opinion and I'm going to keep saying the lineup sucks until I see Sony try to change that. Filling the console with ports doesn't do that.

And as for ports effecting other games. It won't have an adverse effect on Uncharted's quality and I never said it would. The time being spent on the port though is time that could be spent getting Uncharted 4 done. I'd rather Naughty Dog be focusing all of its effort on Uncharted 4 right now, especially with key people having left the project. It's possible the game never would've made 2014 anyway, but with some of the team having to deal with The Last of Us remastered it makes it an absolute certainty that Uncharted is not this year. The remaster could've waited.

@Sanquine

Thanks for the purchasing advice, I'll be sure to not take it into consideration. I'll buy what I can afford, when I want to buy it. I spent my $400, giving Sony the benefit of the doubt and just as anybody else has the right to kiss the company's a$$ and never complain (which is 99% of the Sony fanbase), I have just as much a right to get pissed if I feel the company isn't delivering. In the first year for PS3, as bad as it was on the whole thanks to lazy third party porting efforts, Sony was at least doing what it could to make the system seem like a good purchase. Resistance, Ratchet & Clank, Heavenly Sword, MotorStorm, Warhawk, Uncharted. It wasn't wasting time with old ports. And the excuse 'while they're trying to convert a lot of Xbox gamers,' is just lame. I don't care if they want to port games like Beyond or what will go down as a classic like The Last of Us, over to the system eventually, but after just one year? That's time that should've been spent trying to get Uncharted 4, undoubtedly a 2015 release, out this year. What we're left with? inFamous and not much else. I'll believe Drive Club is a 2014 release when I actually see it on the shelves, and I'm being generous giving Sony that one because even if it does release this year that game looks like it's going to suck. The Order has potential that's about it. Now, being fair, the third party multiplats seem like they mostly perform better on PS4 which is a plus. But the games have to be good for that to really matter. I'm sure Batman: Arkham Knight will be a great game, the other ones? Very up in the air. The Evil Within, Destiny, Watch Dogs, all could end up being great games. If they are, I can't act like and say that doesn't sort of make up for the lack of first party content because a great game is a great game regardless of exclusivity. However, if those third party releases suck that makes the lack of good exclusive content even worse.

Gamer83 commented on So, the PSP Almost Matched the Vita's Sales in...:

3DS is still doing well enough every where, so there's still a market for "traditional" gaming on handhelds, the problem is not enough high profile exclusive games. It needs Grand Theft Auto, Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil and more Assassin's Creed and Uncharted. Get some games in those series, lower the price and sales will go up. Probably wouldn't sky rocket and put on the path to being one of the best selling handhelds ever but I don't rule out a possibility of it selling in the 45-55 mil range, provided Sony markets it better and is able to land some big-time exclusives.

Not happy about barely year old ports? Yeah. I didn't buy a PS4 to play games I already played a million times on PS3. Apparently outside of Sucker Punch Sony's first parties can't be bothered to release anything worth a sh*t this year though.

I like Revelations a lot, it was designed perfectly to be played on the go. I felt it lost a little in translation to the home consoles though. But as far as the setting, the atmosphere, even the cheesy dialogue. The game reminded me a lot of old school RE. It was paced pretty well too.

@Clamedeus

If a company can get Tomb Raider back on track after all the disasters it had between the time 2 and Legend released then there's no doubt Capcom can get RE going back in the right direction. I think it just needs to focus more. RE 6 tried to be too many things to too many different audiences. I actually enjoyed Leon's campaign and Ada's had its moments unfortunately Jake's and Chris' campaigns were weak, especially the latter, which was just horrendous, it was a Gears ripoff that functioned terribly from a gameplay perspective. I can deal with nonsensical narratives if a game plays well but unfortunately Chris' campaign missed that mark.

To me, the key is deciding what RE is going to be and then sticking to it. As a long-time fan, I'd love to see it return to its horror roots but if Capcom wants it to be a third-person action/shooter, that's fine with me, as long as it delivers a good one. I didn't love the direction it went with RE 5 but the game was still well made. Deliver a good RE story with great gameplay mechanics is all I ask. Unfortunately it just seems Capcom is a mess in general these days.

@Clamedeus

Capcom itself was saying 6 would be a return to the classics, and we saw how that turned out. I'm definitely not going to get my hopes too high but at this point, anything that has potential to be announced for PS4, Xbox One and PC while skipping the 360 and PS3 is a good thing. Maybe if Capcom puts its RE: Revelations team on the game it'll get 7 right.

More ports. Great the console is selling, unfortunately Sony doesn't seem to feel the need to deliver actual PS4 games for those of us who were PS3 owners who already bought and played games like The Last of Us and Beyond last generation. I didn't drop $400 on a new console to replay old games. This is a worse first year than PS3. The sales are better, the lineup is terrible though. Funny how Nintendo got killed for this but everybody is saying 'yeah, you go Sony,' when its doing the same damn thing. People crapped on the Wind Waker re-release, people are laughing that MS' next Halo release may be a remake of Halo 2. At least these are classics that were released a long time ago though. There is no reason that the first year of a console should be filled with ports of games barely over a year old, don't give a damn what anybody says.

@rjejr

Wii U's biggest problem, ironically, is also it's biggest strength... Nintendo. It does have the best lineup (this could change quickly if Sony decides to get its first-party act together) now but it took a year for Nintendo finally start pumping out the games. It also does not help that Nintendo has done a piss poor job of advertising and explaining what Wii U is. And the Wii, despite being a gret console from 2006-2010 had an absolutely dreadful last two years with only Zelda: Skyward Sword, Xenoblade and The Last Story being worth mentioning in 2011-12. So Nintendo also hurt its own image a little bit with the way it ended last gen. That said there is a lot to like about the Wii U and I'd recommend the system to any gamer but Nintendo has done a bad job getting the message out and there's still people who think it's nothing more than an add-on for Wii. I haven't been impressed with Sony's lack of marketing for PS4 games but it has advertised the console itself pretty damn well and it has a good price point. I'm interested to see what happens once the real must-owns start coming out.

Well, inFamous: Second Son coming out helped PS4 more than I figured it would. Titanfall will have longer legs but may not be a system seller afterall. Price may play a bigger role in this whole thing I expected.

I'll take a shot in the dark and say it's a combo of two things. Sony needs the money and SE is the company that will be providing the big Xbox One Japanese exclusive. Maybe I'm way off on that but it wouldn't surprise me. MS is busy chasing games and Sony is just sitting back doing f**k all.

Gamer83 commented on Rumour: PS4 Firmware Update 1.70 Right Around ...:

I've never minded system updates, the problem with them on PS3 was simply that you would sometimes have to wait longer than should be necessary. With PS4 the updates almost go unnoticed and the more, the more better. It's still a new system. Any little fixes included that may make the console perform better is fine with me.

Gamer83 commented on UK Sales Charts: PS4 Exclusive inFAMOUS: Secon...:

@DaftPlayStation

Yeah, I always expected Titanfall to outsell inFamous, and to be fair, Titanfall, though not for me because it lacks any kind of single-player content, is a well made game. I'm just disappointed to see inFamous drop so quickly behind some of these other releases. But yes, at least it broke a million which is impressive given that it didn't have a ton of advertising (at least not in NA) and PS4 hasn't even broken the 10 mil mark yet. I'm thinking with this game being the best exclusive on PS4, probably for the rest of this year, 2.5 mil or more by the end of December is a good possibility.

@Philson

If you've already played The Last of Us there definitely isn't much for PS4. I'm really hoping Watch Dogs surprises me and ends up being a good game, but my expectations have fallen so far from where they originally were. When it was revealed it seemed awesome, every showing since it has gotten progressively worse. That said, the concept remains cool and the story if done right could make for an intriguing release provided the gameplay is also solid. Guess we'll find out soon enough.

@JaxonH

Truth is, these kind of articles always take place early in a new console cycle. They'll disappear eventually. The sooner Sony gets off its a$$ and instead of laying people off actually release good, first party exclusives, these kind of articles will go away and the focus will be on the PS4 actually being a good console. Right now it's an inFamous tv adapter and unfortunately as awesome as I think that game is, it's short as hell.

@Philson

Well, fair enough. I actually agree with you about the X1's hardware, that and the $100 price difference played a huge role in me picking the PS4 to be my first new-gen console back in November. I'm thinking my recently purchased Wii U is going to be getting the most use at least over the next few months though. PS4 aint got sh*t on the horizon except a 'remaster' of a game I already played the hell out of. At least it's getting games in 1080p, so I guess that's a 'win.'

@shingi_70

I think it's relevant. These are two consoles going after similar segments of the market with many of the same games. During the last gen there were lots of debates about performance of multiplat games on 360 and PS3 and, especially at the start, many of those went in favor or MS' machine. This gen things are turned around. I think it's good to have these comparisons and discussions especially since a lot of people buy more than one console.

@Philson

I'm guessing then that you don't even bother with Nintendo consoles? In terms of power I'd say Wii was a massive disappointment for its time and with Wii U just being slightly more powerful than 360 and PS3 we're not exactly talking about a technical marvel. I actually like both those consoles, thought Wii had a better run from Nov. 2006 to the end of 2010 than people gave it credit for, but I don't like either machine for what they can do when it comes to raw power.

Not really sure what's so 'head scratching' about this. Despite the hardcore 'Sony can do no wrong' fanbase trying to downplay what she meant to Naughty Dog over the last couple months, Amy Hennig remains one of the great talents in this industry, period. I'm guessing Todd Stashwick enjoyed working with her and wanted to continue to do so. Nothing head scratching.

@rjejr
LOL, I noticed your posts over here are much more positive than at NL can't say I totally blame you. It took a really nice deal at Target and Mario Kart being right around the corner for me to finally get a Wii U but I think things will pick up the console soon, software wise anyway. I highly doubt there will be nothing between Mario Kart 8 and Smash. Bayonetta 2 is a no brainer for this year and I'm not ruling out X. I wish the release list was jam packed but I've long since accepted 3DS is the primary Nintendo system, Wii U is a nice complimentary system. I still think in the end the U will have a strong library. It is a nice little system and it does have the current best new gen exclusive by miles in Super Mario 3D World, I love that game and I'm only on World 4.

@JaxonH
Yeah, I can't do the one system thing, too many franchises I like from all 3 of the console makers. I have a preference towards PlayStation, but no way do I want miss the Mario, Zelda and Halo games.

I would hope June. Otherwise you're looking at August until anything with even a slight chance of being worth a damn comes out and that's just for people who haven't played this. I really see no point in double dipping though. Awesome game, but the upgrade doesn't look that impressive so the dry spell after inFamous continues. At least since I finally got a Wii U, I'll have Mario Kart 8, and hopefully Smash Bros. 3DS is no later than July.

Not bad considering Titanfall and MGS V Ground Zeroes (prologue but was still hyped) released not too far ahead and Sony did literally nothing in the way of advertising for inFamous. Only complaint was that the game seemed a little on the short side, but awesome none the less and glad it's selling well. Can't wait for Sucker Punch's next game, whatever it is (hopefully another inFamous).

Gamer83 commented on The Last of Us PS4 Will Boast Enhanced Lightin...:

@JaxonH

I guess what concerns me is that with PS3 early adopters were paying their dues for three years. The PSone and 2 didn't hit the ground right away either but by the end of '96, PSone was building a nice library and by the end of '01 PS2 had a good amount of solid games. PSP had a strong launch then was dry until like 2008, PS3 took until 2009 to hit its stride. What gave me hope for PS4 was how strong Sony's first party output has been the last four years but it is what it is. With the recent happenings I'm not expecting anything until 2016. Of course I can't say the grass is much greener on the other side because the X1's lineup isn't exactly stellar. It does seems have more games announced that I'm looking forward to but a few announcements from Sony at E3 could change that. At this point I'm ok with the fact it's going to be a waiting game again, I just want Sony to show me that there is something to look forward to. People always point to The Last Guardian as a reason why it's good for companies to play cards close to their chests but I don't agree with that strategy when it comes to all games. New IPs, yes, but we know Uncharted is going to happen and I'm expecting the build up will start at E3. Sony has a bunch of other franchises it could announce future entries for also.

@Tasuki

Not the biggest fan of indie games (there's always a gem here or there but I haven't really found one yet for PS4), Thief was a massive disappointment but to be fair that might have been my fault for expecting too much, and most of the other stuff I'm looking forward to is still very much up in the air for how good it will be. The Order, The Evil Within, and I'll throw Watch Dogs in too, could all be great, they could all also just as easily be disasters. The rest of the lineup is ports that aren't needed. The only sure thing is Batman: Arkham Knight, really hoping that it stays on track for October.

I agree, inFamous is a great game. It's just unfortunate other developers, first and third party haven't really delivered anything worth playing. I like MGS V: Ground Zeroes, but it is just a prologue and Thief was a pretty big disappointment. The Evil Within is a summer release I'm looking forward to, I'm hoping Mikami can deliver but I'm cautiously optimistic.

I honestly didn't think the PS4's first year was going to be as bad as Wii U's but I was completely wrong. At least at the end of 2013 Wii U had Super Mario 3D World. We'll see what Sony has lined up but right now, just terrible. inFamous was great other than that, it's just damn port after port of games that don't need it. Looks like the only system getting a summer release worth a sh*t is 3DS with Smash Bros. Mario Kart 8 is very late spring so that'll be good for the dry months too. E3 has to be good for Sony though, it's great that the PS4 is selling now reward the people who bought the machine.
