KALofKRYPTON commented on So, Looks Like Sony's Already Working on the PS5:

Take the best of PS3 and 4.
Go for high spec but also multi function. PS3 is a great media centre, PS4 isn't, and while MS really dropped the ball with the 'TV, TV, TV' initial pitch, they're useful features, but didn't need to be the selling point.

The PS4 is a great machine and I love having one. Graphical grunt is topping out in the PC world. Hitting the coveted 1080p coveted/60 with ease on any and all titles is already possible. That will be a target, as will the likes of VR (if it actually takes off).
I think the ability to carry on producing traditional games and really being free to explore new gaming concepts will be important. As the article states, soon enough (10 years I reckon), it really won't be about the hardware- it will be much of a muchness, a choice of brand and little more else.

I've been watching a livestream played on PSTV, looks good, some screen tearing and framerate judder, but nothing particularly distracting, and it could be the capture/stream causing it.

Why this has received so little press from Sony I'll never know.

Also, those worried about the port; it's developed by Panic Button Games, who developed the PS4 version of 2.0 and also optimised Injustice for the Vita, so they probably know their way around both the game and the system perfectly well.

@AyeHaley
Well, if people are bargain hunting, some stuff to remember:
Wii, Wii U, PS3 and PS4 Infinity bases are identical (xbox 360 and xbox One bases are both different, I would assume that the Vita base is the same as the DS one), so if you can get one separately cheap, it'll work.
Infinity 2.0 and 3.0 software is/will be available separately, so again, you can get that separately cheaper.
There's plenty of separate and loose figures and sets out there too, so don't feel restricted to the starter packs.

@AyeHaley
'people like me' are the reason that the big publishers are still in the game.

I point back to the inflation point. £80 all in, about £35 in 1990 money, when MegaDrive games released at £50. Not an insignificant amount of money then or now, but while top developers then we're teams of dozens, they're now hundreds in some cases. Add to that the marketing and the incredibly short shelf life of a new boxed game and dlc just makes sense. Even in the realm of 'gated content'. If they know now they can sell a season pass for extra content down the line to keep your copy of the game off of the preowned shelf, then they will. No dlc for a story based game I've seen to date has left me feeling like I've misses out by not having it, or the 'should've been in the game' feeling.

'That's disgusting!'

The Internet shouts as I drive around in the Animated Series Batmobile.

Say that makes the game £80 at retail, which is a lot- that's very much in line with inflation. Gaming is pretty inflation busting most of the time. If everyone didn't view DLC as something evil that they should be entitled to for free, or that it's not a major economic player in a game's (and studio's) lifecycle - all the better.
We are at a point where DLC is a AAA standard and a very good, non-mandatory way for the studio, publisher and everyone else with a finger in the pie to make a little more.
Drive that industry out, we're left with a lot of well meaning indies without the resource to build games like Arkham Knight.

Looking forward to it.
I love how NR handle other characters. Especially what they did with Freddy last time around.
Given the 80's nerdgism that the team obviously has, I wonder if they're trying (or have ever tried) to get Robocop in to the game. I think that would actually work rather well. And a Xenomorph...

KALofKRYPTON commented on PS Vita Firmware Update 3.50 Adds Accessibilit...:

XMB option for PSTV would be good.

@Belmont make sure the PS4 isn't trying to connect online using WiFi. The PS4 only has 1 WiFi radio that's used for both online functionality and Remote Play. I have my PS4 connected via WiFi and I've found that using the direct connection with Vita is awful, even in the same room. If I turn off the Internet connection on the PS4 it works just fine.

So while considering my possible purchase of a Playstation TV, I took a look at the official compatibility list only to find Speedball 2 Evolution (Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe being one of my all time favourites from the Amiga days) listed!
So that's on the Vita for what remains of the weekend and most of next week's lunchtimes :-D
No multiplayer on the vita version though which is a shame.
