Why is this even going green? This isn't even "Not News" it's pure BS.

Bad form subby, bad form.

Wow, looks like a mod and submitter really just wanted to troll people.

It's either bad satire or a crappy April fools type joke.

Fark has gone too far with this "submission" from "non-gamer guy"

So let's have a real funny moment

Why do we need new consoles again? Graphics are good enough. It'd be better to make consoles modular at this point; swap in new processors, gpu's, and different peripherals, etc etc. Upgrades are cheap and so is manufacturing cost, and the company gets to keep its cash flow as new and better games come out. I don't get why companies go in this all-in-one approach to console gaming. It's just not good long term if they can't get us good prices.

Having a single hardware combination vastly reduces the complexities of software testing (compatibility, bugs that might arise from different architectures), as well as the complexity of the underlaying OS. Windows can do it because it was designed to support a lot of different drivers, but embedded OSes can be a lot faster, smaller, and reliable if they are hardcoded to specific drivers.

Why should I spend hundreds to buy a non-portable consumer electronics device with few uses and whose specs will be frozen and obsolete during its 5-8 year lifespan?

So I can get Modern Warcraftfare Hero 2016 Mega Turquoise Special Edition : The Sequelling?

Halflife 3, exclusive to anything but steam?
Sounds like horse shiat.

Did anyone read the article about the new xbox needing to be online all the time?

Won't that suck?

It could be $3.50, still wouldn't want one.  Suck it, Sony.

Check out the press on the Steam Box.
 
2013-04-04 07:44:47 PM
I hate to make this point, but when you include the Sony license fee on the games you can rack up a few hundred dollars in additional profits and make that $300 console worth $500-$600 to the company. Oh, and those networks things.

Standard marketing department jibber jabber. I respectfully disagree. It can be done. If it can be done outside console world, it can be done inside console world. There's nothing special about game systems. In the end we're just talking about computers after all.

yukichigai: Half-Life 3 confirmed as a console exclusive

[www.ffxionline.com image 250x272]


I doubt Valve is making an exclusive for anybody, particularly when the SteamBox is coming out.

That said, Episode 3 was already announced and is up for PRE-ORDER ON STEAM for a late October release. I doubt Half-Life 3 will have any sort of release date until after Episode 3 ships.
 
2013-04-04 07:51:24 PM
$799? I can buy a new car for that... Ok, maybe not new, but still.
 
2013-04-04 07:52:37 PM
as of right now, no official pricing by sony.  good one, i actually believed it until i started looking it up.

It was when he said Half Life 3 was gonna be a Wii U exclusive that I realized it was a late April Fools prank

I'm speaking as an embedded OS developer, not marketing. I agree it is possible, I'm saying it isn't practical for the market, especially since PCs accommodate what you are after.

Or, if not in WW2, could the main guy be a steroid infused infantry warrior in powered armor fighting aliens. I think a game like that could go somewhere.

Partly because we've gotten to the point where your average cell phone has more processing power than the consoles.  For a while, it was nice because your average low-mid level PC could at least play the games, but now it's just stupidly far behind.

The funny thing is that I own a PS3 now. I bought it from someone who just had it collecting dust. I played a few exclusives on it (Heavy Rain & the Drake's Series). And now it's collecting dust for me as well :P

If only there were a platform where hardware was modular and software could be customized to the user's tastes.
What a revolutionary idea.
I must talk about it with my friends via Skype while pwning their noob faces.

Not gonna care that much.  This generation made me forget why I liked consoles in the first place:  Japanese games.  Whoever gets the most support from companies like Namco (for Tales games), Atlus, Level 5, and the like will get my money.  But definitely not on launch.

I bought a ps3 over a year ago mainly to play the 2 final fantasy games, however I also planned to buy cheap classics for it as well to have around. That hasn't really happened yet, I don't quite have money to splurge. I dont regret buying it, but yea its collecting dust.

Man, I feel bad. You are the guy the market has totally abandoned, but to be fair your taste is pretty atrocious.

I just gave my xBox 360 to my nephews because once I got an xBox controller for the PC, I realized I could just play the console games at the computer, so I stopped using the xBox.  My eyesight is so bad that sitting closer to a smaller screen for a game is preferable to sitting far back from a large TV.

I did get them the Kinect before I gave it to them, and that looks like a good addition, but I'm farking 45 years old.  It has limited appeal to me at this moment.
