@  KaliniuS : (09 December 2014 - 10:21 AM) FFVI had it all: great music, great graphics (for the time), 5 player parties, ability customization, secrets, incredible story, amazing and interesting characters
@  KaliniuS : (09 December 2014 - 10:22 AM) FFVII was great too but having only 3 people in your party at once felt like a big step backwards.
@  KaliniuS : (09 December 2014 - 10:22 AM) And I didn't care for the store as much. I enjoyed both North American FF titles more than VII.
@  KaliniuS : (09 December 2014 - 10:23 AM) SNES titles that is*
@  KaliniuS : (09 December 2014 - 11:44 AM) On a separate note, I'm ranked #97 in the world for ranked wins with Spinal in Killer Instinct lol. It's nearly 1100 wins!
@  Foe-hammer : (09 December 2014 - 06:43 PM) Got the XboxOne Halo Master Chief Collection deal at walmart for $330. The only reason I went with the xbox over the ps4 was Halo MC Collections and it was a heck of a deal... I know once the new Red Dead comes out with considerably better graphics on the PS4 I'll be pissed though.
@  KaliniuS : (09 December 2014 - 07:56 PM) That's a good deal for sure. The PS4 versions of third party games typically have slightly higher resolutions and better framerate but I haven't seen one that is really a night and day difference between the two consoles.
@  TonyDP : (09 December 2014 - 09:56 PM) Anybody else watching The Flash? Pretty cool mid-season finale tonight featuring The Reverse Flash.
@  Foe-hammer : (09 December 2014 - 11:08 PM) I guess saying it would have "considerably" better graphics was a bit of an exaggeration, but an noticeable difference will disappoint me; I've always been very particular about graphics. It kills me MS put all that money into the kinect RD, instead of beefing up the systems specs.
@  d2_s : (09 December 2014 - 11:52 PM) @Kal II have seen at least two: CoD Ghosts (1080p vs 720p) and Tomb Raider Definitive edition with 2x the frame rate being considerable enough for me, but yeah generally the differences are minor and I'll put alot of it down to lowest common denominator development and parity being more fruitful than investing extra time into the ps4 version for little return. It will be interesting to see how things pan out when real next gen games start to come out that push gpupu. The potential is there for PS4 to really pull away, but chances are it wont for various reasons. I suspect it will end up like last gen with PS4 major 3rd party titles having a slight edge and with 1st paerty titles being a technical cut above the best of x1, pretty much like how the best stuff on ps3 is beyond the best on 360. IMHO
@  d2_s : (09 December 2014 - 11:53 PM) excuse all the typos, tablet shits itself when i type too fast
@  d2_s : (09 December 2014 - 11:58 PM) @Foe Enjoy Mastercheif collection. I agree the focus on Kinect is what lead to x1 not having as much grunt as ee hoped. I suspect alot was to do with saving money on ddr3 and having to include esram, which ate up die space that could have been used for gpu. And those savings were due to the added cost of the kinect - my educated guess.
@  KaliniuS : (10 December 2014 - 10:53 AM) You're probably right d2. Microsoft put way too many eggs in the Kinect/ TV basket. Not enough focus on raw power and improving the gaming experience.
@  d2_s : (10 December 2014 - 04:48 PM) Don't get me wrong (as we've seen already) the x1 is capable of some excellent stuff, I just think Sony focussed their hardware budget where it mattered more. That being said I am underwhelmed by the hardware in both systems - I was expecting more.
@  KaliniuS : (11 December 2014 - 01:25 PM) Yeah, it's not quite the same jump in quality that the Xbox was to Xbox 360/ PS2 to PS3 in my opinion.
@  ermac666 : (13 December 2014 - 02:19 AM) I do feel that both sony and MS should have made their consoles up to snuff to able to handle 1080p at 60 fps without any problems or sacrifices. Aside from that, I still enjoy games like infamous second son and far cry 4.
@  TonyDP : (13 December 2014 - 10:33 PM) Agreed; I'm having fun with both consoles but it is disappointing to see both systems struggling so much to maintain 1080p/60fps, especially when just about everyone assumed that this generation of consoles would be able to support that with no problem.
@  KaliniuS : (15 December 2014 - 11:22 AM) So, Sony is donating half a million dollars to the pot for the Capcom Cup 2015. Probably to build hype for Street Fighter V.
@  KaliniuS : (15 December 2014 - 11:23 AM) This might force Microsoft to start throwing more money at Killer Instinct. They've basically done nothing to promote the game since it's release. It's being kept alive on a tournament level by diehard fans.
@  KaliniuS : (19 December 2014 - 08:53 PM) My sister brought over some jalapeņo-flavored beer... it's fucking disgusting.

New Destiny footage was just released. If you're in the US, you can get a free beta code for pre-ordering, but the beta doesn't go live until this summer. Codes are supposed to be limited, which is likely a load of BS to get you to pre-order the...

In case you guys didn't know. Uncharted 4's gameplay was shown at Playstation experience. Check out the footage. It looks amazing. Love the detail on the environments. Gunplay looks similar to past games with some new mechanics thrown in.

I figured that each console deserved it's own thread so started each one with a poll included.Discuss your likes, dislikes, and whatever else you wish to discuss about the PS4 here.
