#12079929 Why doesn't Microsoft Just Release a Steambox Alternative?

Posted by el swordo on 09 September 2014 - 06:34 PM

In all seriousness, el swordo, you inadvertently answered the question: "Why will the steambox fail?"

 

I see no reason for anyone to compete with it.

 

I don't think Metro UI was for one singular OS, but rather one unifying UI.  My Win8.1 Laptop tries to look like an Xbox, but it's far far from it. (Classic Shell fixed the lipstick on my pig)

But microsoft has something going for it that the steambox will never have.   Halo, Gears of War etc. The reason I don't play pc games is because of games like those.   The games that are ported to pc can be played on consoles I already have and then I'm free not to use windows

Posted by el swordo on 09 September 2014 - 01:34 PM

Don't even have an x1 yet but doubt titanfall will be a better deal anytime soon.  It doesn't need a online pass to play it online does it? Also is tomb raider worth picking up if i beat it along time ago on 360?  On a side note i paid $60 full price digital for second son and it was worth every penny.  Get it for $18 if you're on the fence at all

Going to trade in my shit to GS tonight. Should get enough credit to pay for at least half of it. Plus I have a $25 GS PUR coupon that is going towards it.

 

Is there any way to get a cheaper play and charge kit? The fact that I need to buy one annoys the hell out of me but whatever.

skip that shit and buy rechargeable aa eneloop batteries.  they last forever and you can swap them out in 10 seconds when they eventually die

Minecraft out this Friday for x1 and only 4.99 if owned on 360. 1080 p 60 fps game will look great

Yeah I'm sure 1080p 60fps will make any difference for a game that looks like it's out of the stone ages of gaming

Lifehack go to Lil Caesars at 10:30am when they first open and the pizza is fresh and pretty dang good.  When I was in college I would do that before my 11am class all the time.   




#11256559 Are Console Exclusives Bad for the Consumer?

Posted by el swordo on 19 November 2013 - 08:21 PM

I've been thinking alot about this lately.   I don't need 3 different android phones to run all the android apps I like.  I just chose the one that meets my needs the most closely.   I don't need to subscribe to 2 separate cable subscriptions to watch all the tv shows I want.   Why should we have to buy 3 separate consoles to play one or two games on each one that you can't play on the other?   Last gen I had the 360 and ps3 and the 360 would get used every day and I'd turn on the ps3 to play stuff like uncharted and infamous for a week or so after they came out then go back to the 360.   I know why they do it I just wish it would stop.  I really don't want 3 separate boxes that do practically the same thing under my tv and have 2 mostly collect dust.  Does anyone see a future where this madness ends?

Anyone know if we'll still get the Preorder DLC for select games? It isn't on their pages anymore.

Am I the only one who thinks that preorder dlc is close to worthless?

We'll, they're projecting 3 million PS4's sold in 2013.  I'd guess at least 2 million-ish are probaby ready for launch, if not more, since they've had months to produce them, and only 6 weeks left in 2013 after launch.

And from pictures the boxes look super small so that they can fit a ton in storage.  But 3 million in a month and a half seems like a lot

I feel like you'd have a better chance calling someone. At least then if they strike out you can ask to speak to a supervisor and the supervisors tend to have a better idea of what's going on.

Those chat's are one step up above preprogrammed bots.   And it's not worth my time to call amazon when most likely i can either find my answer here or just wait a few days and find out for myself. That being said it doesn't give someone the permission to be a complete asshole like the guy above.   You missed out on the b1g1 promotion big deal wait for the b2g1.  And if a game you want isn't on there it's not the freaking end of the world.  Also why the hell are you upset when you didn't get a code for a preorder that you cancelled?  I returned a game to gamestop and the lady working the counter didn't give me a blowjob what the Fuck? You are mad at the guy because you can't see into the future?  WTH dude calm down.  Not you samaside the guy above. Also just because your preorder shipped doesn't mean you'll lose any money if you refuse the package or return it.   So calm down and relax.  Amazon did this  promotion to be as fair as possible.   Nobody can see the future so don't go off on some dude you don't even know because you can't.

The reason he did this was because we all were waiting for a the B2G1 sale from Amazon and was afraid if our game was shipped we would have to buy 2 more games instead of just 1.  Also was going to hit up Target if Amazon didn't do this.  So in the end we screwed ourselves hoping to get the promotion but instead have to wait til Tuesday.

So why'd you preorder in the first place rather than waiting for deal?  I personally ordered COD on amazon because I knew I'd get it before launch and the $4.20 I'd save on tax was more valuable to me then a $10 gift card.   I never expected to get a b1g1 coupon from amazon.  This is why I love amazon.   I never expected anything from them and they reward me for my loyalty anyway.

There are no wheel support for PS4 as of now right? Debating on NFS, but don't want to play with controller.

Might not be officially supported but might work anyway.  I have a usb genesis controller that i use for emulators on my htpc that i plugged into my ps3 for shits and giggles and it worked

I bought cod on amazon and they sent me a b1g1 coupon on select ps4 titles. So think I will get nfs and either cod or battlefield to flip on ebay @60 and offer free shipping. So basically get free game at price of shipping. Might want to check your inboxes

Anyone see the console in person yet? Is it as huge as it looks on tv and pictures?  The thing looks like it weighs 50lbs.  And whose idea was it to make both halves different colors?   Not that the ps4 looks any better.  T
