Sony Sacrificed the PlayStation 4 Camera to Beat Microsoft on Price

When Sony announced that PlayStation 4 would be priced at $399 to an uproar of applause from the audience at its E3 press conference, it secured a critical edge over the Xbox One. But the advantage came at a cost: the PlayStation 4 camera (formerly known as the PlayStation 4 Eye). According to multiple sources, in the months leading up to E3, Sony nixed plans to include the camera add-on with every system and shave $100 off its originally planned price of $499. Most importantly, it did so quietly, informing its retail partners only of the removal of the camera, not specifying the lower price so as not to tip its hand to Microsoft.

But in its efforts to undercut the Xbox One, Sony has damned the accessory to a future of fragmented consumer adoption and inconsistent software support. The decision has also rendered a major design element of the DualShock 4 controller — the built-in LED Move tracker — largely useless...

Yup, I'll have no problem getting the $500 Xbox One with the Kinect already included and Halo 5 incoming. No reason to get the PS4.

What is Halo? Is that an iconography game?

Seriously though, I hope you like it, and I hope others buy it as well. I think competition is a good thing here...

A friend down the hall from me in my dorm my freshman year of college called me into his room. Something like the following exchange took place:

Him: Hey Jake, I don't play this anymore. You want it?
Me: Sure, if you don't mind.
Him: Nope.

Apparently, the game was not only good, but fairly uncommon. I still need to play it, though. I plan to do so this summer.

Been thinking about coming back to World of Warcraft. I quite at the end of Cataclysm because the thought of pandas.....just...no.. But I know it'll turn into an addiction again. Before it wasn't a problem, but now being Orthodox I know it'll keep me from God and that's not something I want to happen. No matter how fun that game is. I played it everyday for 7 years, it was so hard to put down. But with God all things are possible huh.

El Shaddai asscension of the Metatron.

You play as Enoch, on his hunt to find the fallen angels and bring them to justice!

Based on the so called book of enoch but I think they take liberty with it despite me never reading it.

Microsoft says yes in March.
Microsoft says no in April.

Microsoft says no in June.
Microsoft now says maybe in July, if people "make enough noise".

Keep changing your mind, MS, it's a ton of fun to watch.

Remember when they were gonna do all that innovative but somewhat controversial stuff, and a ton of people got mad, so MS said sometime around E3 that they weren't going to do all that stuff? Now MS is saying that they might change their minds again and do some of that stuff if enough people want it. I guess when MS caved and decided to ditch the most unpopular ideas there was some kind of backlash by people who didn't want them to ditch some of the stuff. So now MS is trying to figure out a way to balance things so that they keep as many people happy as possible.

Someone who uses Steam help me:

I am out of the U.S. right now, and I try to log on to Steam (with Wi-Fi connection) and it says Steam cannot connect to servers, so it won't let me access any of my games. I've never had this problem before A) Being international or B) Being disconnected from the internet>

Suggestions?

Playing Civ IV. About to try a couple games with "Always war" turned on. I suspect this will not go well as I usually opt for some type of peaceful gameplay...

I've played the GBC remake along with DW2 and DW3, but sadly I've never finished any of those. I do plan to play through and finish them soon though, as I've finished IV and VI over the past couple years and have been trying to finally finish V.

Anyway, I think the first one is good, but a bit archaic-feeling which is to be expected. It's a lot more simple (story/combat/world) than the later games from what I've played of it, but it's still enjoyable considering it was originally a NES game. It seemed a bit more vague regarding direction, but I was younger when I played it. I tried to pick it up again recently although went with DQV instead.

If it isn't obvious, I love all things DQ/DQM. 8)

As for tonight... BLAH. I was playing Civ IV, had a nice situation set up. Didn't have always war on, and was peaceful with all my close neighbors. I was expanding and there was a solid base for growth. Then out of nowhere Saladin swoops in with like 15-20 units and decimates me.  :-\

Tell him I spit back in his general direction.  ;)

I am not a huge fan of them in history as much as in games because they always have the widest array of troop types.  Elephants, phalanx, chariots, heavy cav, etc.  All the cool stuff in one kingdom.  Plus the Seleucids are hard to play because they are stretch all over the place with lots of strong enemies around with adds to the challenge.

In MTWII, I like the Byzantines except they are so OP that you can pretty much just dominate everyone, so I usually end up playing someone like the French who have some big opponents around them. I can't bring myself to play the Islamic hordes, I just can't.

The Byzantines can destroy the Turks in two or three moves in M2TW. I can't play them since I know how to do it.

Do you use any mods?  I use Stainless Steel 6.4 which makes the game much more entertaining.  Byzantines are still way too OP tho.

Great  ;D  That was one of the first franchises I got into in video games, and also love them to death. Most of them anyway  8)

Nice. What are your favorites and least favorites?

Let me count the ways I love them (lol)...

DW 1 - The first one I played as a kid. Loved it, especially in it's time. I guess it was a little simplified, even by NES standards, but that was part of the plan. I've seen/read interviews with the creator and he said all the RPGs at the time were had a more difficult learning curve, numbers heavy, etc., and he wanted to make something almost anyone could play and find enjoyable.

DW 2 - Somehow I missed this one when it originally came out, despite my parents owning a video shop at the time (and thus my having free rentals of pretty much anything that came in). I didn't play this one until years later... I think on a GBC but I'm not sure. Definitely was my least favorite of the first three (trilogy).

DW 3 - One of my favorite. games. ever. Compared to modern RPGs it's obviously fairly short. I think I kept track of the time it took to complete in one run through (cause I'm a geek like that) and it was something like 25 hours of gameplay. And nostalgia might play a part in my loving it so much. But I still go back and play it (emulated) from time to time. My favorite of the series. Last of the games based around Erdrick. My username on some sites is based on that name, so suffice to say I loved that storyline  8)

DW 4 - The last one I got to play as a kid. Bigger than DW 3, and I didn't hate the chapter-based set up, but it did make things seem a little disjointed. It was an interesting concept though. I can still remember the Christmas I got this from my grandparents. By the time we got home I could only play it for like an hour. My cousin slept over that night, and then the next day I wanted to play it but my parents insisted that I go to my bowling league. When I got home my cousin told me he had already beat the first chapter. I was so p*ssed. How dare he beat part of MY game on MY NES!  :D  Anyway, yeah, great game IMO.

After that, I used to be subscribed to the Enix newsletter and they were always talking about what was going to come after DW 4. I was so excited. Then --poof-- no more DQ/DW in the US for a while.

DQ 5 and 6 - Didn't play these till years later on the DS. Not sure how I would have liked them as a kid/teen, but as an adult they seemed just ok to me. Maybe it was because I was playing modern RPGs at the time, or had missed them earlier, or had to play them on a small screen... but whatever it was, while I enjoyed them, I didn't love them.

DQ 7 - I didn't own a PS, so I had to wait till I had a PS2 to go back and play this one. Again I felt like it was ok, enjoyable even, but it didn't get me to love it nearly as much as the early ones. Others seem to disagree and think this was the best of the pre-8 games.

DQ 8 - I bought a PS2 just to play this game. I don't remember if I saw it in the store, or saw a commercial for it (Ha, DQ commercials in America, what a surprise!), or what, but I had to have it. It became, at the time I played it, my favorite DQ/DW game. However, after going back and replaying it several times it has faded somewhat. Still probably my 2nd or 3rd favorite of the franchise though.

DQ 9 - First time I played this I didn't think much of it. I guess after 8 I was expecting a mammoth console game, and instead I got a dinky DS game... and a fairly short one if you don't do/care about all the dungeons and such after you beat the game. With this past play through earlier this year though I liked it a lot more.

DQ 10 - Can't played it, since they haven't released it stateside, and I can't read Japanese. Won't play it if they do release it here. I don't want like it, I don't want it. No no no!  Put DQ 11 on a console and not a MMO and I will be a happy fanboy again.

Other DQ/DW related - I have enjoyed what DQM I have played on the DS, but I haven't played enough to say for sure what I think. So, anyway, I'm sure no one cares about the above, but I enjoyed reminiscing with myself anyway   8)

To list from my favorite to least favorite (as of today, anyway):

3 - 4 - 8 - 1 - 9 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 2

First four (3,4,8,1) are classics to me, next 3 are enjoyable (9,5,6), and last two are sorta meh (7,2).

EDIT--wow, didn't realize how long this was till I posted it. I know, tl;dr.

^ Very nice. I didn't expect you to have played so many (all!) of the main series, since so few people I've talked to have. I haven't even.

I'll have to hold comment on 1/2 comparison until I replay. I did really like what I had played of 3, especially with the class changing system although IIRC it's a shame they eliminated NPC companions for "mercenary" recruits. My GBC copy of 3 doesn't work anymore, or I'd go back and play that too. :(

I thought IV was great. Similarly, I was hesitant about the chapter-based story but I really grew to love it. It's definitely one of my favorites so far.

V is pretty good too, and I especially like the monster-taming aspect of it (because of my DQM-love, of course). The story is alright so far, and the triple-choice marriage aspect is neat too.

I honestly barely remember VI's story. I just now had to read a summary of it to remember what even happened, and still it's vague. I remember a couple really cool parts (like Jamirus on the island, trying to cause a demon uprising - especially since it's featured as a gate boss in DWM1), but that's about it. The characters in VI are actually the kids of DWM, which is cool too.

I haven't played VII, VIII or IX sadly. I do not want X, we do not need DQ MMO's. Final Fantasy can keep that nonsense.

You need to give DWM 1&2 a try, and maybe even DQM: Caravan Heart. Those three games IMO are immensely better than the DQM Joker DS games (although I haven't played Joker 2). IIRC, like Terry/Milly being in DWM from DQVI, Caravan Heart's world map is DW2 and features Keifer from DQVII. Not to mention many of the bosses and monsters that appear in 1-6 in DWM1/2. I can't remember if Joker included the bosses from the DQ series or not.

The Europa Universalis IV demo was released today.

http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/showthread.php?706599-Europa-Universalis-IV-Demo-released!
I've seen EU series being sold in stores, but I've never played it.  Is in any good? It seems to be somewhat similar to the Total War series minus the combat portion and more fleshed out on the diplomatic side.  Is that an accurate evaluation?

Yes and no. Europa Universalis games are very, very good. I've spent hundreds of hours playing Europa Universalis III.

That means I have to go find the website, click the download button, run the installer... Whew!  I'm exhausted just thinking about it!  ;D
