In Topic: 64gb vita memory cards available at GameStop $116.99

What horrible prices. I am glad I got a few cards cheap a few months ago. Picked up about 3 4GB ones at Best Buy for $7, got a 16GB from Gamestop for $20, and got a 32 GB one at Best Buy for $45. I do not even own a Vita. I am waiting for the third model to come out. The second has a terrible screen and the first is inferior to the second save for the screen, so I will wait for the third model.


... Kmart is selling the 4gb cards for like a buck fiddy. I own a Vita and won't even bother buying those. They are utterly useless. I have a 16gb card that I got cheap, used once, and never used it again.

Switching cards in the Vita is such a painfully long process. It just makes the pain of trying to use multiple smaller cards actually worse than biting the bullet and taking out a second mortgage for a single good size card.

Any input on Hot Shots? I have all of the other games on that list except Resistance.


It's the game I keep inserted by default. It is a pretty decent golf game and plays very well on the Vita.

looks like details for the Xbox One June update are out, here's a snippet:

 

" Your Xbox One system will soon support up to two external hard drives at once. Simply plug in your 256 GB or larger USB 3.0 external hard drive and once formatted, copy and move games, apps and game add-ons to increase your storage capacity at home."

I so hope, though I'm not holding my breath, that they give external hard drive support to the 360.

We had a Super Boss Round with a Gargantuar, Disco Zombie and Yeti and I was the last one left as a Cactus and managed to survive and kill the last zombie right before our Garden was destroyed.

The seeming ridiculousness of this statement makes me want to play this game...

Where have you heard this? With the amount of cash at Microsoft's disposal (compared to Sony being in the red), they can afford to buy all the exclusives/timed exclusives they want. This gen (last gen?) CoD always sold more on Xbox, not only because there were more Xboxes being sold, but once someone bought MW2, then WaW and realized that DLC came earlier on the 360, it swayed a lot of people's decision towards buying the consoles. 

 

No doubt Playstation has more and (arguably) "better" exclusives but,  personally speaking, they don't appeal to me. Most of these exclusives are either Japanese-based, (I'm going to get hate for this) a "rip-off" of a western franchise, or niche games that don't matter to me. Call me a "dudebro" or whatever, but I enjoy playing games like Battlefield or Halo or Gears more than I enjoyed playing Uncharted (played 3 through with a friend), which felt like a prettier looking Tomb Raider with a guy. 

You have to read between the lines a bit (or read the right articles, but you have to filter through some fanboyish stuff to find the ones that give a fairly unbiased view).  Direct quotes from the developer (Respawn) and publisher (EA) that future iterations of Titanfall will not be exclusive, and wording such as "It will be good for the X1" are the best indicator that Titanfall's exclusivity to X1 is not being seen as the greatest idea now that sales figures for the systems are not showing the X1 to be the runaway leader.

 

EA execs in particular were definitely of the opinion that the X1 was going to destroy the PS4, and EA was very obviously in bed with Microsoft as the X1 was announced.  I believe that opinion took its first blows during the uproar last year that resulted in firings and re-shufflings at Microsoft, and the sales figures have just added fuel to that fire.

 

I do agree that Microsoft has some deep pockets, and is not at all afraid of throwing money at a problem.  The X1 is not going to fail, but it also isn't going to drive Sony out of the game console business like I am sure some Microsoft execs hoped.
