I have it on PC, great game. As always though, pad control is a pain to set up. So I'll happily buy it again.
@RawShark if you've ever played the Colony Wars series, Rogue Leader series, Jedi Starfighter series or the (even better) PS2/XBOX Battlestar Galactica - then it's not hugely different.
It may seem imposing (it's not) , but when you get in to it it's great.

Also, watching it again- that arm smashing through the glass... Is orange jumpsuited guy meant to be Harry? Because, and call this wishful thinking, but that's either blood-not something you'd expect to see in a Spidey game trailer- or, y'know - Carnage!

Nice. The new Web swing mechanism has me interested. Perhaps this will be the Spidey game to finally dethrone Spider-Man 2...
Don't like Kingpin's voice, shouldn't sound like such a thug. The 90s cartoon had him down to a 't'.

I'm 32% in to my expert/evil playthrough, still have my 'done everything' 100% save for finishing off the Cole and Paper Trail missions.

I'll hang on to it, enjoying it a lot. More is good.

Until that Han Solo table hits for Zen2 at least.

I'm sure Titanfall will provide a massive boost. It's the only XB1 game I'm even slightly interested in. That said, there's a fair amount of sites throwing around terms like 'reinvented the fps' and the like... For me, it very much seems like they've nicked most of their ideas from Unreal Tournament. Double jump/vertical gameplay, speed, Titans-all of it really.

I have this on Steam, cost me 7 quid.

It's in no way breaking new ground. Plays very much like any arcade style space shooter you've ever played. Thin story, very standard mission types ranging from 'kill everyone' to 'defend the capital ship' to 'take out the capital ships' etc.

But...

That in mind, it is stunning looking, and silky smooth. And it's been a while since I had a space shooter on a console. I'll probably buy it again.

It did have sone lukewarm reviews, but there's nothing wrong with it.

'Sony's refresh of the PlayStation 3 famously removed backwards capability with the PlayStation 2'

No it didn't.

A relatively small number of initial run systems had onboard PS2 hardware to facilitate BC. The hardware was subsequently removed and BC handled by emulation alone on all following 'launch' 60GB PS3s.
The subsequent hardware revisions had no impact on BC, it was a change at the firmware level in order to sell PS2 Classics via PSN.

GAME will seriously need to change their pre-owned pricing structure to compete with Cex. Their price promise on trade ins is all but a lie, since it's completely down to managerial discretion and they make it very difficult to actually take advantage of it.
This is a bit of a leap too far for GAME at the moment I think. Could very well see them in the can again!

I'm enjoying it so far.

The price criticism just doesn't make sense to me. If you've already played it or own it, why bother buying it again. Or moaning that it costs 40 quid? It's essentially the same purchase.
If like me, you never played it, you get a new.game for less than current new game price.

@JaxonH
They charge higher licensing fees to third parties than any of their competitors (historically and currently), they're never forthcoming with dev kits and often are very late delivering hardware.
Nintendo first party games are a good reasons to buy Nintendo hardware, but can't be the only reason. As has been evidenced by WiiU.

@rjejr Not at all. Nintendo are a games company. They make hardware to facilitate that games experience, and that's all they want to do.
But the WiiU debacle (I think it's utterly fair to define Wiiu as a commercial disaster) has shown them up for their narrow-mindedness and lack of forward planning. They still treat third parties like crap like they always have, despite Sony and Microsoft being dominant in the market and having companies and indies scrambling to release on their machines. As I say, only in this past week have we seen Nintendo deign to offer up possible licensing opportunities for their games and characters in an effort to make the most of the market, as if they're not continually losing money.
They've had a long time to observe WiiU's fortunes and react, and done little to help it along- perhaps in the hope that it would recover as the 3DS did, but it's not going to do that without developer support.

@DaftPlayStation Sony would never make a 'gaming PC' anyway. They'd price themselves out of the market with one and it is a little at odds with the PlayStation family at the moment.

It's good to see such sweeping change so fast in reaction to their numbers. Shame about job losses, but skilled people are never down & out for long.

It's quite the contrast to Nintendo, who's only concession to their own situation seems to be a half arsed licensing option.

I can't believe they're selling Vaio off. What a shame.
I know Vaios are rather unnecessarily expensive when broken down to their component parts, but no one makes nicer PC hardware than Sony.
I bought a Vaio Duo 11 Ultrabook last year, very expensive, but so very, very good!
