Our Games Gorilla has just sent word from the Sony Conference at E3 that the NZ price for PlayStation 4 has been confirmed as $649.00 by the Sony NZ boss! He also confirmed that it will release in NZ this Christmas!

Yes PS+ is now compulsory for online play, no biggie I've had it since launch. Its only $3 a month and you get at least five free games a month. This month its the HD remakes of Ico and Shadow of Colossus. Sony have said there will be 4 PS4 titles on PS+ on launch, all g.

Its funny, the PS+ thing is the only thing Xbox fanboys have to pull out...

And Drive Club which is a launch title I'm really looking forward to is free for a year to existing PS+ members. I was gonna drop $100 on it anyway, now I can pay for PS+ and then get a free game worth more than my subscription, sounds OK to me.

i wouldnt consider myself a fanboy of either, or consoles at all, but they are pretty different, i suppose i lean pretty strongly to sony in this tho, xbox is ironically the mac of consoles.

For the PS4 it looks like only one account on the console has to be PS+ and the rest can play online though. Means my wife can use the online without having to get PS+ herself

i dont really get the fanboy thing for either console, they are both basically the same thing. put in a disc or download some content, play a game.

i figure ill preorder both and leave one at work. i only really want gta5 tho so maybe ill end up selling both if the pc release happens.

also i am liking how easy x-bone has become the preferred way to refer to microsofts offering.



why get a next gen console to play a current gen game it wont even be able to run?

unless i'm a munter and gta 5 has been annouced for next gen?

it's not really a free game when you have to keep subscribing to be able to play it

Last time my sub lapsed the + titles I was jamming at the time still worked, weird.

Really hope they go with a Netflix type model for that game streaming.

It's ok to be a fanboy when the opposition are dicks.

in the end i preferred the ps3 to the 360, but it was a close run thing, the ps2 and the xbox were about equal really, both having their advantages and disadvantages.

its not really fanboy shit, if the xbone was better id probably want it, but its not, its amazingly shit.
sheesh jay, youre not THAT superior to all other humans.

I think its quite easy to see how fanboy attitudes might come around with these sort of things, just look at knobs who argues over falcon/commodore and they were probably even more similar to eachother. Its part of human nature to want to belong to the winning team, also things like purchase justification..

console wars have been going on since the NES vs. Genesis, what's new? maybe the fact that the internet has a way of shoving it in your face whereas back in the day you had to wait to go to school the next day to fling shit at fans of the other system.

doubtful there was a war back then. I'm pretty sure there was also an adapter for the coleco/intelli that allowed you to play Atari games. I think everyone was too stoked to have that sorta shit happening on their TV's to care about which system was better. I believe it was when Sega directly attacked Nintendo with their "Genesis does what Nintendon't" campaign is when shit became a competition.
