With the release of the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One this month, many are declaring it the start of the "next generation of consoles," in particular the eighth. Both machines are competing with similar specs and games, though each has its own unique attributes to push gamers in one direction or the other.
"But," a few have said, "the eighth generation actually started a year ago, with the release of the Wii U!"
And the response from some... Read more →
To be quite frank, the PS4 and the Xbox One are not worth the money right now. Here's why I believe so:
- Both consoles are missing out key features that were promised and are waiting on updates in the "future" . In some cases, these "next-gen" consoles lack basic functionality that their...
Does this really matter though? Sure, the PS4 is more powerful on paper (and I believe the PS3 was "more powerful" than the Xbox 360 as well). But I don't think that matters at the end of the day. Most developers are going to be creating games and content for the lowest common denominator (even if it's called a... Read more →
I have a rather bizarre issue with it. Whenever I turn it off (mostly on purpose after a gaming session, but sometimes on accident if my foot bumps the amplifier), it's ridiculously hard to turn it on again. Basically, it will turn on for a second, everything will light up, and then it will turn off again.
It's really obnoxious!
So, I'm in the market for a new... Read more →

Available November 29th, the Piston has "an x86-based AMD 3.2Ghz quad-core chip with 384 'programmable discrete-class graphics cores'; 8GB of RAM and 128GB of solid-state storage; 12 USB ports; and support for up to three monitors (mini-DP, HDMI and DisplayPort) at up to... Read more →
As you may or may not be aware, a big feature of the PS4 is remote play which allows you to view content on your Vita as long as you're on the same WiFi network. Essentially it would function like Wii U's controller, but the kicker is that the Vita is actually a portable console thus making it more than just a controller.
Hot off the heels of E3, Microsoft, Sony, Ubisoft, EA, and others are presenting their latest and greatest at Gamescom this week in Cologne, Germany.
Microsoft held a press conference at 4AM EDT this morning, and announced new, exclusive titles (like Fable Legends), a free copy of FIFA 14 to every European Xbox One pre-orderer, as well as a new Indie Developer initiative called ID@XBOX which aims to make Xbox One the platform for small developers and games.

- No more always-online requirement
- No mandatory check-ins every 24 hours
- Authentication will no longer be needed for game discs
- You'll only need Internet when setting up the console
- No restrictions on loaning or renting games
- No more region locks
Will not be included in the box. It will be a separate accessory costing $59.99 in the US. I wish it was included so that it would be easier for developers to implement features. Previous Move Controllers and Navigation units are compatible with the new Eye.
Will be bundled in for communication. Mono earbud, with inline mic. Any 1/8" headset should work though.
Extra controllers will be $59.99. (Damn the redesign looks great)

Yesterday was not a great day for Microsoft. Their E3 presentation should have been a triumph, where they show off the shiny new games for their shiny new system and get people really excited for all the fancy new features. This is what the E3 conference is for. Instead, they found themselves competing for the public's attention against Apple's announcements at WWDC (with both presentations overlapping time slot-wise, and Apple talking iOS... Read more →
Yesterday the New York Times published an article that mentioned that not only are sales down for Sony's electronics division, but that it's lost $8.5 billion over the past ten years. To anyone who pays even the slightest bit of attention to the market this isn't surprising at all. What is surprising is that 63% of Sony's operating profit comes from their financial division -- life insurance alone accounted for $9.07 billion... Read more →
