Actually I only have 29. I keep some non Steam games on my account. Even on my old account which is three years old I have a small amount of Steam games.

So in like a matter of minutes I'm suddenly leaning towards a PS4... this means I wait. And fuck that sucks because I like having new shit. Oh well, I guess it just means I'll be making a more thoughtful decision. I wish it wasn't so hard to decide, this is going to take some time...

What are your reasons for considering an XB1 anyway?

Mostly friends. Like the three friends I play with most and talk to on XBL are all more interested in the XONE. The friend I play with all the time is getting one for sure. Also I already have more than a year of XBL Gold, but I don't have PS+, so that's an extra $60 I would have to spend. Then there's Titanfall, Fable, and potentially Halo (not sure how I feel about the series atm). The controller is something I prefer much more over the Dualshock 4. I'm more accustomed to it and from what I've heard the XONE controller is amazing. Dualshock just doesn't feel right to me, and D4 looks terrible IMO.

One thing I'm not sure of, but think I saw is that I can't take advantage of the deal where you trade in current gen games for the next gen version for $10 because you can only upgrade X360 - XONE, and PS3 - PS4. Not sure on that one though.

This really isnt something you can comment on since they're both redesigns. I much prefer the 360 controller over the dualshock but since they were announced I've been confident that the D4 will feel amazing. I've heard people call it literally the greatest controller ever made. Here's an example.

The Wii Classic Controller Pro is my current favorite controller and it looks fairly similar in how it's spaced out. Looks awesome imo.

I really hate the shape of it though. That hasn't changed. It doesn't fit my hand like an Xbox controller does. The joysticks being horizontally aligned doesn't feel right with my brain either. I'm sure both controllers will be great, it just comes down to my personally preference in shape and layout. Haptic triggers is going to be pretty cool too.

Waiting until both consoles have been out for a little while is a good idea. I'll try out the controllers in a store at some point, see reviews on the consoles, and hopefully see some game announcements in December. Is that when the VGAs are? I'm sure we'll see stuff then.

I plan on doing the same. £400 or so is a bit much to be spending on a console when I can't even decide which one to get. With my birthday being in February I might just wait until around then to have a more in-depth look at picking one up.

Kind of funny, but you know it probably has to do with the fact the XONE isn't out til next week and the PS4 is coming in a few days.

I'm in the UK and Xbone and PS4 launch on the 22nd and 29th. I guess you lot will make for good guinea pigs to iron out any early flaws before we get ours. Microsoft have basically been dicks and the shop guys say Sony have been nothing but helpful to them. They even promised extra consoles whereas Microsoft have done diddly squat. Serves them right if Xbone flops.

It has though, everything is spaced wider and the grips are longer and straighter. Have you ever used a classic controller pro? The sticks being smaller and farther apart makes an immense difference. The actual placement of the sticks doesn't seem to matter, just the size and distance from eachother. I'm sure you'll see what I mean whenever you get to try a D4 (or a classic pro).

Waiting until both consoles have been out for a little while is a good idea.

I'm waiting a few years if I ever get them at all. Too much money for what you get and I've missed loads this generation anyway. Part of me would be tempted to splurge if I had the money though, considering there wont be another big console launch for at least 10 years, if there even is another.

Team Fortress 2. I'm pretty sure it's still playable with a terrible PC.

Also, I thought you could download GTA I & II for free on Rockstar's website.

Yeah, I'll have to see for myself how the D4 feels.

You're insane. Poor and insane. I might be poor soon...

Beneath A Steel Sky and Flight of The Amazon Queen are free on GOG right now. Some others are Boson X, TRIAD, Mega Man 8-Bit Deathmatch, Linux Tycoon, Super Squat Simulator, and a bunch of other free games are on GameJolt and IndieStatik.

That part of the site has been unavailable for awhile.

I figured the PS4 would be sold out everywhere... but, uh, Best Buy allowed reserving in store at one of the three stores near me. I put in my name and email for a reservation to be confirmed because I am stupid. So if it doesn't work out (most likely) I'll just move on... if I do get it I'll likely sell it to my roommate or sell it for a bit more than I paid on Kijiji. That's the way I looked at... I can at least break even and get to try one maybe.

Just beat Alisia Dragoon on Mega Drive. As frustrating as a lot of 8 and 16 bit era games can be, that feeling of accomplishment you get after beating them is just so much more than that of modern games.

Alisia Dragoon is a pretty awesome platformer too by the way. If you have a Mega Drive / Genesis it's well worth checking out.

Well I didn't get a confirmation... they're supposed to email even if it's not confirmed... within 20 minutes... so shit. Oh well.

I've been recently reading different books on not only video games, but different things that we have taken from pop culture and that we use in our video games.

- The Steampunk Bible
- Dungeons and Desktops
- The Monster Hunter's Handbook
- Capcom 30th Anniversary Character Encyclopedia

All of these have been quite the interesting reads. Have any of you read any books about video games?

Paid off the rest of my PS4 today, the wait is almost over.

Anybody hear about Ghosts on it? Apparently because the PS4 is so much more powerful compared to Xbone for some reason it sometimes tries to play the game at over 60fps which is causing problems for some people.

I've heard they fixed that and there are no longer issues with frame rate.

I told myself that I wouldn't buy a PS4 until it has a decent list of games. That said, I'm very tempted by a PS3 now that they're getting cheaper...should I? I already have a 360, but it has a big shortage of JRPG and adventure games.

I'll most likely pick up a PS3 at some point. Persona 5 was what re-sparked my interest in getting one. That and there are a few games exclusive to PS3 that I'd have liked to play. Still haven't had a chance to play MGS 4.

MGS4, Journey, Flower, Uncharted, Infamous, 3D Dot Game Heroes, Ni No Kuni, Ratchet & Clank, Little Big Planet... go for it, man. PS3 definitely had the better selection in the long run.

consoles owned: SNES, Nintendo 64, Gamecube, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360, PS1, PS2, PS3

handhelds owned: Gameboy Color (Pikachu Edition), those handheld games i gots in my happy meals way back when, Gameboy SP, DS Lite, and 3DS.

online user name(s): i am not out there as much in the field of online gaming. Xbox Live and PSN accounts are there, rather untouched for quite some time.

current games being played: Pokémon X, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon (basically all i play is my 3DS these days. never leave home without it!)

introduction, yeah!

so i do not have much thought on purchasing either the Xbox One or the Playstation 4. both consoles have their merits and some games do catch my eye, though i am not swayed to one side or the other. i am getting the WiiU without a doubt however. still, i am conflicted between the two. i am not asking for persuasion to either side, although you are free to. it is simply my opinion on the matter.

i love video games, we all love video games! i am glad we can share this affinity and have good times and discussions.
