ZeD commented on Talking Point: How Important Is Game Length?:

You should take film ticket prices into account here as well. I pay £10 for a movie whether it is 90mins or 180mins. So if you pay £50 for a game you could potentially get 5 times the amount compared to a film. So for that price I would expect at least 8-10hrs of good story based gameplay. I remember in the past being excited for longer films but I feel that newer, longer films can get boring quickly. Same for games. After 10hrs on a game I will usually stop playing. I do not know why but I just do. So if a game sits at 8-10hrs it is perfect for me.
Odd comparison I know but that is how i look at it. :)

ZeD commented on PlayStation Now's All-You-Can-Play Subscriptio...:

To me this is a great move by Sony - it is like Netflix but for games! There are some months when I do not use Netflix but I still pay to have it just in case I fancy watching something. It could be the same for this.
Can any one confirm that PS Now works in the UK if you log in on a US account or is it blocked by IP? Just a thought...

This is.in the TOS we all agreed to so to be fair this is a.good deal. They did not have to offer us anything.
10% is good with sone good Digital titles coming out :)
To be fair though Sony do need to improve on their communication skills. Would not hurt to keep us up dated but I am.happy that the people behind the attacks are being arrested now!

Edit: just seen this was posted before me. Sorry for duplicate post.

ZeD commented on Sony Engineers Investigating as PS4 Goes Offli...:

Come on guys give Sony some slack. Networks can be completed (trust me I studied them for a year) and it seems that the attacks may have caused some damage. I did read that after the last attack they were modifying there systems to protect from.further attacks but looks like it is not done yet. It is all well saying that you will sell your PS4 for an Xbox but remember them were hot too. Also please remember that they had staff in on Xmas day trying to fix it. Ddos attacks are not nice - at peak times I imagine it is like trying to drive at night on the wrong side of the road.
But my question is this - will you moan when they announce the next maintenance? Problem yes because we are a very fickle bunch of people :p

ZeD commented on November NPD: PS4 Loses to Xbox One for the Fi...:

@mitcHELLspawn I have seen a few price cuts on the Base model here in the UK. Not sure about global price cuts but there have been a few in different stores. Numerous (more than one) is not an exaggeration as it is true for around me. I will give Ms credit for listening to their players though. Instead of sticking with one plan they have changed! Look back at E3 2013 for example :)

ZeD commented on November NPD: PS4 Loses to Xbox One for the Fi...:

Like I said before. This is a shallow victory. If the Xbone had sold this amount of consoles based upon its original price and package then I would be impressed, but I am not. Yes I know both sides had "price cuts" for Black Friday but the Xbone has had numerous price cuts in the past 12 months. Plus, the Xbone is easy to shift in the UK because if you ask a parent if their child has a console they have no idea what you are talking about but if you ask if they have an Xbox they become experts instantly! Anyway why should we really care? I am happy with my PS4 and Sony have seen a better start than the PS3!

ZeD commented on PS4 Loses Black Friday Battle, Research Firm C...:

When I was in queue in Game I saw lots of Xbones being sold. It is clever because the people who were buying them were parents. They were been encouraged to buy all sorts of crap with them too. Game loves stupid parents - they are walking bags of money. Oh well,to me the PS4 is still the better console :) They only issue is that for the Xbones to finally outsell they have had to remove the kinect, endless price cuts and black Friday deals. A hollow victory if you ask me.

ZeD commented on Round Up: Grand Theft Auto V PS4 Reviews Extor...:

@rastamadeus ah I see your point sorry. I think was I was trying to say was that you can find exclusive experiences on the other consoles which would make then fly out of shops. Sunset overdrive, the order, last of us etc
The other two consoles (in my opinion - only own one) offer a bit more than the Wii U and I wish it wasn't so.

ZeD commented on Round Up: Grand Theft Auto V PS4 Reviews Extor...:

@JaxonH Good points and they will stick with it I am sure. The problem I see is that the games are keeping the current owners happy but not drawing new players in. It is a hard place for them to be in I am sure. The last Kirby gane I played was made of wool and it was so easy XD. Maybe I can love it at some point but I am happy with my current set up with my "new" Gta V and new Far Cry. It is a really pity that they did not end upon the Wii U along with other great titles too.

ZeD commented on Out This Week: Grand Theft Auto V PS4, LittleB...:

Too much coming out! I think they have chosen this Tuesday because it is rather close to Black Friday. Get the games out so the bundles can be created! Tatics to get us to spend our hard earned cash!

ZeD commented on Round Up: Grand Theft Auto V PS4 Reviews Extor...:

@Savino I have lost a lot of faith in Nintendo tbh. I refuse to pay nearly £300 for a console that has very little to offer (unless you like 1st party Nintendo titles). Don't get me wrong there are some titles I would like to play but I cannot justify buying it. It is a big investment for something that has an unclear future. After Smash Bros what is next? A "new" Zelda? A "new" Mario? At least with the PS4 I get chance to play titles like GTA V and Far Cry. If it was, let say, £180-£200 then maybe I would get it but to be honest I would rather buy food for the month. I would like to say these points over on the sister site but have you ever tried to say you dislike the Wii U over there? No thanks.

ZeD commented on Ubisoft's Latest Patch for Assassin's Creed Un...:

What I think has happened here is that during development they ran out of time for submission (because this can take a while to go through). So instead of delaying it, they presented the game as was and started to work on bugs for the day 1 patch. They are not the only ones who do this. GTA V has a day one patch. Common practice.

@Jazzer94 unfortunately I do not have access to a high end pc so I cannot compare to what I do not know. Meaning I will not miss out. Maybe if I did then I could say but I do not. With out this data I cannot possible see what it would bring to the table

@get2sammyb Single digits - damn that is bad but I have not seen this yet. I do agree on this point that sometimes it can be unplayable but hitting this magical 60fps (standard) seems to be killing some games. All games suffer from this - heck carry out the duplication glitch on Minecraft so you have over 1000 dimaonds on the screen at once. You are living a stop motion world there!
They should have a target of 30fps and only then see if they can boost it. If not, keep it as it is. I do not agree @Gamer83 that the current consoles cannot take 60 fps. It is down to the devs to sort this out.

ANy way back to GTA V - why is it not the 18th yet?

@Gamer83 I know people with PCs that cost twice that amount and still have frame rate issues. And Ubisoft should be sued by Sony for lower the quality of the PS4 version as the other versions were low quality - this I agree on.
Also Far Cry 4 looks amazing! Elephants!!

ZeD commented on Round Up: Grand Theft Auto V PS4 Reviews Extor...:

@Gamer83 I am still yet to see this "major" frame issue that Unity has to offer.
Yes it is 2014, but do we really need to hit 60fps? No, no it does not. As long as the game is fun that is all that maters. Games should not be pushed to one side due to frame rate issues.
Game; an activity that one engages in for amusement
I just enjoy playing my games after a hard day at work. Period.

ZeD commented on Round Up: Grand Theft Auto V PS4 Reviews Extor...:

How come since this generation started frame rate is a closing factor in a score. Seriously when you play games are we all counting the frames?? Yes you may notice a drop now and again in some games but it does not ruin the game. Looking at you GameSpot!

ZeD commented on Talking Point: Is This Gaming's Most Disappoin...:

@eLarkos Still makes no sense as on the SEN you can stream Music, Video and Games. If anyone was going to do it first it would be Steam. They lead the way in future gaming needs. Do not worry though, you will be able to do that soon. In the end it is all about cost - why spend so much on developing a system when it may not make money.
I have heard that you might be able to play PS4 games on your PC via Bluestacks
