lvnlavitaloca commented on Review: inFAMOUS: Second Son (PlayStation 4):

@get2sammyb The reviews I have read (including this one), lament the amount of content in the side missions. It was just announced that thee day one patch for Second Son will provide 3 additional hours of side mission content, with additional content to be added for free on a regular basis. I think this is likely to help combat the used market as people cannot trade the game in once they are done if they want to see what happens with the additional content, but I think that is what has hurt the game's metascore.

@banacheck Most definitely. The general consensus was the game looked rough leading up to the PS4 launch. Everyone kept saying this particular studio worked in a way that allowed them to make the whole game then add polish later, but there was concern in all the previews leading up to the original release date. Apparently the concern turned to reality and they couldn't pull off what they envisioned in time.

I would like to think this extra time means extra polish. Sometimes extra time means something is fundamentally wrong with the game(see duke nukem, prey, etc.....). This is a Sony owned studio though, so I am inclined to think polish, polish and more polish.

@Gamer83 I agree, I think the concept would be an awesome new IP, but I doubt need for speed will ever go away, I've been playing it since the 90's. I was thinking more along the lines of what Ubisoft has been doing lately. They have a core team working in a project until the final stages of development then they bring in all their other studios to add to the final product. That is why splinter cell felt kind of assassins-creedy, and why assassins creed now has boats. Its smart to leverage all of your talents and not just have "the fps guys" and "the racing guys".

I bought a 32 GB shortly after launch and it is full. I can't wait for the 64 to come stateside as I plan on buying that too. The price is agrivating, but when compared to apples price structure(an extra $300 for a 64 GB iPhone vs the 16gb model) its not that bad. That is what blows my mind, people have no problem shelling out rediculous amounts of cash for anything with an apple on the back, but say the vita/PSP/ps4 etc.. are too expensive.

I thought Deep Down had the most impressive trailer of all the games shown at the PlayStation meeting last February. I don't know how I feel about free to play yet though. I just hope Capcom doesn't mess it up, their track record hasn't been the greatest as of late.

I bought tearaway day one. It's awesome. However, I often feel like I am wasting money when months go by with ps+ giving away only games I already bought. So I can see where that could be a real problem for sony when it comes to gamers with a little more patience. At least sony is pulling down $50 a year for ps+.

@get2sammyb I also noticed the battery life of the dual shock 4 is poor. I attributed this to the fact that all my chat audio was routed through the ds4 as my pulse headset isn't compatible yet. I wouldn't think an LED light would be to harsh on the battery. Still, I do miss the ds3 battery life. I keep one ds4 on charge while I play with the other.

The more online the merrier! I know a bunch of my friends that used to be xb360 guys have converted, so I am happy to have most of my friends on one console! As long as Sony keeps making ps4s leading up to Christmas they will keep selling out.

lvnlavitaloca commented on Not Pre-Ordered a PS4? There'll Be Consoles Av...:

@get2sammyb This is exactly what happened in the U.S. I had read there were going to be extras, so I told a few of my friends who hadn't been able to pre-order. They went to gamestop around 5:30 pm the day before launch and were able to get two ps4's to pickup at midnight. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants one in the next few weeks, because we haven't seen any more in stock anywhere since. I am hoping more will ship after the global launch because I know a bunch of people trying to get one. I need to fill up my battlefield team!!!!
