get2sammyb commented on Feature: Five Reasons Why You Should Buy a PS4...:

@Punished_Boss_84 I can see that criticism, and I definitely had it in mind while writing this. The way I look at this, though, is that you buy a console as a long-term investment, right? And I personally feel that it's a safe investment as outlined by the points in the article.

I do understand why people would prefer to wait, but, I mean, if people are going to buy one for Uncharted 4 next Christmas anyway, why not jump in now and take advantage of all of the cool stuff that's both come this year and is on the way over the next 12 months.

For me, just the upgrades to operating system alone compared to the PS3 make it a worthy purchase.



get2sammyb commented on Big Blockbusters Sell Best on the PlayStation ...:

@Dodoo It's a difficult one. I do generally agree, but on the other hand, if their sales are already strong in the US (ten NPD victories in a row), why on Earth would they lower their price just because their competitor's panicking?

Clearly they're still going to do very well this Christmas, so I think it's smarter to wait and reassess in the New Year. I agree that there are smaller things they could have done, though - why not just throw in a PSN voucher with all consoles including a copy of Killzone: Shadow Fall and Resogun, for example? It's a tiny thing, but it would cost nothing and would increase the value of the box.

@Gamer83 Dragon Age should keep selling well on account of word of mouth. According to Eurogamer it debuted with the same numbers as DA2, but while that had an awful reception, I suspect that this one is going to generate a lot of post-release buzz due to comments just like yours.

I'm sure it'll end up doing great! :D



get2sammyb commented on PS4 Shooter Evolve's DLC Maps Won't Cost You a...:

@KAPADO Boom! Yeah, I couldn't be less interested in this either. Good to hear they're doing free DLC - I think if you're not Call of Duty or Battlefield, though, you have to. Imagine if Killzone had charged for maps - the playerbase on that game is teensy as it is, there would be literally about 10 people playing the DLC.

I bought the God of War III Collector's Edition back in the day. Cost me like £100. And it was cool: you got like Pandora's Box and all sorts of bits and pieces inside. Thing is, I looked at it once - and it's been in the garage ever since. Never buy them anymore.
