lets take it here and get it out of the shout box.

I am copying and pasting our last shouts Mike:



Agent Michael Scarn: apparently killer instinct offers only one free fighter at launch. you have to pay for the other characters (on top of paying for the game...)
Today at 11:41:31 AM

Agent Michael Scarn: excuse me, the game is "F2P" although I put that extremely lightly
Today at 11:41:55 AM

Darth Shitty: Also don't think for one sec that game developers for the PS4 will not require some kind of fee to play a second hand game online or some form of DRM.....Sony was very wise in choosing their words, like he quickly showed that fugly console then whisked it away and also he wuickly mentioned having to pay to play online now.  People seem to already have forgotten MS is working on you trading and selling your games online.
Today at 12:19:23 PM

Darth Shitty: the physical disc is going the way of the PC and MS is following Steam's wonderful model for games distribution.  XB1 is pretty much a Digital DOwnload machine, you can buy the physical discs for quicker installs, that is all they are for.
Today at 12:20:16 PM

Darth Shitty: Sony won the battle but in the end they will lose the war if they do not follow some sort of similar suit.  MS is all about anti piracy, hence the 24hr checks, tell me which console do you think publishers rather make games for?  one that is nigh near unhackable or one that is easily pirated...less money in their pockets.....  common sense

I don't know if anybody mentioned this but as for online subscription fees:
PS4: Required for online play, get free games as long as your subscribed
XB1: Required for online play, no longer needed to use online apps such as netflix or internet browser. Also get two free games to keep, even if your not subbed, you get to keep them.

I don't like Consoles very much, but it seems Sony at E3 at least told people wanted they wanted to hear, and pretty much ran over Microsoft, at least in promotions and pretty much most people will go to PS4 at this point.

Yes they did Knives, and no Sushi I did not read that bit about being able to use XBL silver like PSN (the free versions) with Netflix and shit.  That is good news for the people on a tight budget ($60 a year is not bad at all for Gold so I don't see why people bitch about it).  But if you are on a tight budget you most likely have no business buying a PS4 or XB1 in the first place.

Knives, like I said earlier, Sony is focusing on the battle, Microsoft is focusing solely on the War.

Piracy for consoles isn't the issue. Considering you'd need a modded console to run the pirated games, I certainly hope both Sony and MS implement a better mod detection that bans the consoles. I haven't heard a lot recently on developers crying foul over PC pirating. In fact, PC gaming is continuing to gain ground and it is because publishers are becoming more lax on the stringent DRM implementation. DRM doesn't work.

The used games market is not a "piracy" market. Once a person buys a game, complete ownership over that physical product should be in the sole possessor of the buyer. That is why people are up in arms with the XB1; it takes a way that feeling of ownership by limiting what you can do with it. During middle school and high school, myself and my friends were constantly exchanging games back and forth. Can I do this with the XB1? Not really. I can lend it to a friend...one time. For Sony, I highly doubt that they will introduce a model similar to MS after the feedback they received at E3. If they switched it up, it would be complete and utter suicide for their console. Maybe I'm too optimistic--I'm not sure. What I do know is that Sony won this E3 by a landslide because I don't care about "exclusives". I care about the machine that plays the games. Does it limit my freedom over what I want to do with my game? If yes, then I'll stick with what I know best.

MS isn't limiting nor profiting on the used game markets at all, they are leaving it up to the developers/publishers of the games to say if you can trade in/resell your used game or not.  My piracy remark was in reference to the 24hr online check up.  I still can't believe the 400 price point for Sony, even though on both consoles foreigners are getting screwed big time on the prices.  But considering the 360 debuted at 400 with 20gb hdd, 500, what 8 years later with 500gb hdd and kinect, not bad at all for inflation. 

One can only assume Sony is taking one hell of a loss on each console, something just does not add up there (more expensive GPU and RAM).

Yes.  I think that ps+ is also $10 cheaper, and you get one free game to keep but I cannot find where I read that so it might be bs.

ps+ you get free games often as long as you keep the sub up, once you let your sub expire you lose them.  I just got Deus Ex Human Revolution, LBP2 and iNfamous 2.  I think they are releasing Uncharted 3 today on PS+. 

edit:

I am downloading Uncharted 3 and Xcom Enemy Unknown right now, but fuck Uncharted is 40 damn GBs.........

Sony has confirmed that the digital rights management of PlayStation 4 software will be up to third-party publishers. Speaking on GTTV, Sony's Jack Tretton stated, "The DRM decision for third-party games will be up to publishers."

Used Games:
You have to buy an online pass for the MLB THE SHOW games if you want to access ANY online feature, including custom roster downloads, and that gets tied to your PSN account. So when I moved and tried playing the game on my roommate's PS3 I couldn't access the rosters because it wanted me to buy an online pass.

I think Ubisoft also does some stuff with like uPlay or whatever their thing is called that can be a headache with sharing/used games.

It's more complicated than "xbox supports one re-sale/sony supports unlimited re-sale" and it'll probably be a unique situation for each publisher.

Miscellaneous:
The problem with a Steam-like game sale system on XBL or PSN is a) they have not yet shown the same kinds of price slashing that Steam has, and b) file size. A lot of people have limited bandwidth and/or download speed so it can be a serious hassle to download a 20+ GB games on a regular basis. I don't keep up with new games on the PC but even something like Skyrim is only around 6 or 7 GB.

I really like the PS4 price-point at $400 and I'll be curious to see the timing for price-cuts from Microsoft and Sony. MS will probably be in a position to drop the price or do a bundle earlier since they're starting at $500.

Microsoft has said stuff about the XB1 using cloud computing to augment the on-board processing power which sounds good in theory but I have no idea how well that will work.

Sony has said they will be able to run PS3 games on the cloud and let you play it on your console which also sounds good in theory (effectively backwards compatibility) but I really doubt that going smooth unless you have top of the line internet.

It's entirely possible the XB1 is in a better position in 5-7 years if internet really takes a step up in North America but there's a lot standing in the way of that.

I like that XBL removed Netflix and similar services from behind the paywall so Silver subscribers can access it, and I don't like that Sony went the way of MS and will make PS+ mandatory. As a casual console gamer I rarely play/want to play online games and I hate having to pay for that, on top of paying for my internet. At least PS+ gives you free games and XBL might be going in that direction as well.

Games:
I didn't really see anything that really WOW'd me (but I haven't spent a ton of time looking as I'm still on the road) but Division looks like it could be interesting and I'm really hoping Destiny gets its hooks into me. I can't really compare XB1 against PS4 in terms of exclusives because its going to take years to build up big enough catalogues to judge. I mean just look at The Last Of Us coming out now, right at the "end" of the PS3 life-time. That game will probably end up being a lot of people's favorite games from the generation. Also some of the games coming out soon (e.g. Titanfall) don't even look like a step up graphically from what we're getting now. Neither console is going to reach its technological potential for a long time.

I'm probably going to get slammed for this, but the reason this isn't happening is because of used games.
Consoles are eventually going to go all digital (like steam), and when that happens, I'll bet my pet chicken that we're going to see cheaper pricing on games.
The thing is, we're not ready for that kind of transition yet. MS tried to push it out too early with some rather odd features on their XB1 and in turn got steamrolled by Sony.
