Re: E3 2013 Discussion

Lousy work computer. My CPU temp reached 115c and I was forced to shut down to prevent it from blowing up and taking out half the office. I missed the last 15 minutes of the conference while it was being fixed.

EDIT: Oh, it's 1 hour and 30 minutes? Cool.

There's a rumour in that thread that MS plans for a Gold account to be mandatory for all games, even singleplayer ones.
This will never happen. If the brain(dead)trust at Microsoft pull something like this for all games and XBone models, it will literally mean the death of the Xbox.

XOne price:

499$ in the US, 499€ in Europe.. WTF? That's about 660 $.. cool, i love getting screwed over without lube.

Factor in about 200$ or Euro for initial games, a second controller maybe and this will be an expensive Christmas.

Well.. if Sony isn't way worse than MS the ship has almost sailed on me being an MS man for the next console generation.

£429 in the UK for it, not sure about the initial game price but even the Wii U games started at £60-65 so closer to ~£100 for XBO.

Re: E3 2013 Discussion

Only 2 of the 4 games mentioned in that leak were at the press conference, so I wouldn't trust much else that it has to say.

As for the press conference itself, it's definitely the best Xbox conference in years. Lots of games, only a little bit of Smartglass crap, and an utterly pointless ad for McLaren, but overall it was good. However, as a potential buyer, the games that really intrigued me most appear to be multi-platform, none of the exclusives would convince me to buy this over the PS4. It just wasn't enough to overcome all the reservations I have with the DRM.

The price is expensive, and I expect the PS4 to undercut them with a $400 console.

After seeing the press conference, I'm now guessing that this rumour only applies to the free games that MS are offering to Gold subscribers. If you have Gold and download Halo 3 for free, then you wont be able to play it if your subscription lapses. This is the way that free games on PS+ works.

It's been so-so, the Zombies Vs. Plants one wasn't too bad, the new Need for Speed looks alright, just waiting to see what else is coming up.

And any PS4 footage really.

Re: E3 2013 Discussion

A Battlefront game made by DICE was a no brainer once EA purchased the rights to Star Wars, really glad to see it happening. Pity it was just a teaser though.

Re: E3 2013 Discussion

CBOAT was right, ME2 is real.

That probably means Ubi will announce the PoP reboot in an hour.

All this about Kinect being mandatory and yet not one thing about it, very strange to say the least.

Re: E3 2013 Discussion

Didn't watch the entire EA presentation, but I'm assuming not a word about Nintendo, eh?

I wonder if EA will be saying the same things about the XBone that they are about the Wii U when the XBone fails to take off?

/\ Yeah, I got that bookmarked at work for tomorrow. But the part of the EA presentation I did see, they kept saying "next-gen consoles: XBox and Playstation". It kinda seemed like they were rubbing Nintendo's face in it.
