That sure put me in my place, nice one!

My flatmate informs me that it might be that it detects a PS1/2/3 game in the drive and then will stream it for free but I'm skeptical
edit: If it does then I owe Sony a vigorous high-five

That worries me somewhat, there is the potential that you will have to pay for games you alredy own again in order to play them. Plus if the service is not up and running at time of launch (or fails at time of launch) where is the insentive to upgrade your console when there will a bunch of games you have been waiting for that you simply cannot play.

This exactly, Nintendo has got away with re-releasing their titles on their next gen systems for gens. Backwards compat is such a recent edition and one that's only ever happened on a couple systems I dunno why people get so pissy eh.

Sucks about your fullas interwebs though cos the subscription model is fucking genius, maybe you should get Kim.com up in that shit to sus you some new pipes.

Yeah I'm thinking something equally ridiculous lol, 50" LED is only like $600 here.

Sony couldn't possibly have started doing it any earlier..

But you guys are right, you've convinced me, I thought I thought it was lame but now I realize that I actually at the time thought not having that feature is actually a great feature!
Thanks for setting me straight.

i could probably count all the times i put a ps1 game in a ps2 on 1 hand, shit i could probably count it on my dick.

when ps3 came out i remember we were playing the ps2 need for speeds on my flatmates new ps3, but it didnt play any different to how it did on a ps2 so it wasnt that much of a privilege.

Yeah the original PS3 had a dedicated chip for backwards compat, they pulled it quite shortly after launch to try and bring cost down and shift more units.

An old Xbox can be grabbed super cheap these days, and I don't think I've used anything as versatile for storing heaps of 'old school' stuff with whatever front end.
Not that I play many..

Although me and a flatmate did pass GB Pokemon Trading Card Game a little while back. Gameboy games on a big screen are hilarious. And slightly painful.

All the deets...

E3 is gonna be great to see all title side of things. Looks like this finally sews up what's the primary media centre now, stoked on BD inclusion.

some random guy on the internet wrote:Watching the new xbox reveal, I find myself thinking am I seeing the next generation of console? or the next generation of Tivo . . that also happens to play games.


Mirrors my thoughts. Don't care about/actually actively dislike Kinect and it is required for 'Xbox One'.

Also seems to be being sold on awesome TV/media services but none of those are available outside the U.S so they are useless to us and I doubt they will drop the price outside the U.S to accomodate the fact that these services are useless to us.

Holding out for E3 to see games that aren't shitty CoD/Halo FPS games or Sports Games. The only thing I care about so far is Forza but I'm not buying a whole console for that especially considering I have a Logitech wheel for my PS3.

Also:
Kotaku: If I’m playing a single player game, do I have to be online at least once per hour or something like that? Or can I go weeks and weeks?

Harrison: I believe it’s 24 hours.

Kotaku: I’d have to connect online once every day.

Harrison: Correct.

So the system is built to work even if your Internet connection goes down, but you still have to be connected at least once a day to use it, according to Harrison. We're not sure exactly what would happen if you don't connect once per day—and that timeframe could change—but this doesn't sound good for anyone who was hoping to use Xbox One without an Internet connection.


Doesn't really bother me but it's gonna piss off a few people.

tbh its just a console lol. i'm not sure what people really expect from these things.

looks fine to me, the tv shit doesnt interest me, have to wait till E3 for some game deets.

kinect doesnt make fun of you or hurts children, it just sits there. not sure whats really to dislike about it? the games are gay sure but you dont have to play them

That's true but this gen I just didn't buy Kinect so I didn't have to pay for it. Just like I haven't purchased a Move controller for my PS3.

With Xbox One it's included so will be making up part of the cost of buying the console and Microsoft will be pushing for developers to use it but it leaves me paying for something I don't want. Same goes for all the TV media stuff, will they reduce the price in NZ because we can't used half it's features? I doubt it.
It's more just that I don't want to pay for stuff I don't want/can't use. I guess I just won't, problem solved.

Funny its the X1 media features that have me most pumped, also the fantasy sports integration.

Gonna put down some coin on X1/PS4 pre orders when I get back from vacae next week I think.

So what actually happens if you turn your router off for a few days? Not totally understanding this mandatory once a day Internet connection business.

ur house catches fire and rob unvaccinates your children.






















Seriously though, PS4 is looking like the goer for me, X1 just doesn't cut the mustard despite both having very similar specs.

Game dvr sounds cool. After seeing more shit im kinda hype for this. Already know the controller shits on PS so theres that. Still got heaps of current gen shit to jam, heaps of shit i missed, like bioshock, tomb raider, fallout new Vegas to catch up on so no rush but il prob try grab it at release.

Yeah trigger feedback on the controller is gonna be awesome.

Game DVR is exactly what was announced for PS4 as well, both tryna catch up on PC there.

Pretty funny that Sony's stock skyrocketed yesterday!

As usual, will wait and see what's easier to mod.
Which will almost certainly be the Xbox One.. All these media aspects look sweet to be honest, turning into a bit of a replacement for a computer, which I don't need, but I know heaps of people with shitty laptops but a console. You know the stoner types I'm talking about!

Turned of XBOX by the alleged always online component, because I never have a reliable connection. But who am I kidding, I'd never bother with a console anyway. I think these days gaming laptop is master race.
