  • Ryan Tinney

    Awesome, I thought this was going to be a PS exclusive. Nice to see.

    • ElektroDragon

      No, it’s just free over there.

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        lol there is always that hater that downvotes anything non-xbox.

  • evilfangs .

    No way I’m paying £11.99 for a arcade title, guess I need to wait months for a price drop.

    • Dylan

      Some arcade games are worth the price. Games like Shadow Complex and FTL (which I wish was on consoles)

      • Bennijin

        Shadow Complex at full price is actually less than this.

        • Dylan

          Which is kind of sad isn’t it

      • usrev

        I have and love ftl, but lets be honest, FTL on consoles would would need some serious control changes

        controlling people would be very hard without pointing and clicking,

        • Dylan

          Type in a message on ps4 and click the right thumbstick

          It has a motion tracker and you can point at the screen and click. I don’t know how well that would work, but the possibility is there

  • Jon Taylor

    Far too expensive

    • Dylan

      Free for ps+ if you have it. Just a heads up.

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        yep and just picked up my ps4 today. x1 next week.

        • WARLORD

          Ya I’m still waiting on amazon for min lol it should be there when I get of work…..

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            i actually got nervous about that and just had it held at will call so that i could just pick it up. i didn’t want the ups man throwing my ps4 on my porch like they do sometimes with other stuff.

          • WARLORD

            I would of done the same but I have my wife at home waiting on it so I’m good…

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            ahhhh sweet deal.

        • Dylan

          Mine just came in a few seconds ago!

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            good luck getting into psn. I couldn’t earlier. the update took less than 2 min though so that is cool plus you can still play any games your ordered.

          • Dylan

            The controller is extremely impressive.

            Loved the 360 controller, and this is just as good

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            I know right? I was very impressed. the old ps3 one wasn’t bad but the triggers were horrible. the ps4 controller has great triggers the joysticks are farther apart and not itchy. I love it so far.

          • usrev

            i hated the ps3 controller, but the ps4 controller is much better, it’s still growing on me though

            I think I still preffer the 360 controller. but I wouldn’t be surprised if in 2 weeks that changes.

          • usrev

            I just woke up and psn works. it worked last night too. launch night was a mess though,

        • usrev

          Wish I could drop over $1000 on game systems and games in 1 months time.

    Check out the noise on the PoS4
    watch?v=9yMsqnDCbXs
    So in order to keep it cool, they made the fans an even louder jet engine than the Original Xbox 360.

    • Dylan

      LOL. That video has a vacuum on in the background.

      • evilfangs .

        I’m not sure, It maybe fake but I did a quick Google search for “PS4 is loud” and a few links popped up.

        • Dylan

          Here’s a comparison if you want. Dramatically quieter than the previous gen after an hour, and the same as last gen for the first 60 minutes.

          http://www.gamepur com/news/12477-ps4-noise-level-measured-and-compared-ps3.html

          • evilfangs .

            That article is from October, anything could have changed, but it’s more then likely just another fault PS4 system, or a fake video.

            It’s just the nature of mass production to be honest.

          • Dylan

            Could be.
            A small amount of PS4′s have a small default in the HDMI port and can be fixed with a pin.
            Really minor, Hopefully that’s the only hardware fail this gen.

            RROD was a nightmare for me.

          • WARLORD

            Ya I had two that RROD and one the disc drive went bad… On the up side MS fixed them free the down side it took two months ech time to get them back..

          • evilfangs .

            2 months? Dam. My console that got red rings took 2 weeks, and it was sent from my house in the UK over to Germany and back.

          • WARLORD

            ya that was in the early days of the 360

          • MrRadiolips

            Yeah i got RROD 3 times and each time it took a couple months. Hope they fix the speed for the repair process on the 1.

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            i hope that there is hardly a need for the repair process. its weird b/c i am the only person i know who has a first edition xbox that never got the rrod.

          • usrev

            how about this, I have my ps4 on right now

            my laptop is louder than it. it isn’t loud at all.

            what makes some noise though is the disk drive, it’s actually kinda scary when you hear it at first as it sounds like it’s scratching the disk (it isn’) but once a game is installed you can’t really hear the consoles.

            the fat 360 sitting at the dashboard is louder than the ps4. and I just cleaned it out last week.

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            did everything go well with your ps4?

          • Dylan

            Yeah. Download times were slow, but I’m not sure whether it was my internet or PSN. Resogun is a lot of fun. No hardware problems and it is super quiet.

            You?

        • WARLORD

          If it’s on the internet it must be true……lol

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      get a life. hurry.

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    anyone see the south park episode this past wed? super funny.

    • Dylan

      Brack Friday Bunduru!

    • roozbeh, again

      Cartman is on our side. Yay

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        lol i am a bi-consoler. i am getting both. got the ps4 today and its awesome and I expect nothing lesss with the xbox one.

        • evilfangs .

          Why are you here!! If I had a next gen console that I had been waiting for for over year I sure as hell wouldn’t be here, I’d be getting my game on.

          • WARLORD

            Probably the same reason I’m here, at work bored lol…Tech support is slow on Friday too… Makes for a long day of waiting to go home and play it…….

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            work :( i was able to get my system and play it for 15 min and then off to work. booo!

          • evilfangs .

            I’d have phoned in sick lol. I’m a loser :)

            only 7 days wait for me now.

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            i was until i was having problems signing in on psn so i figured i would just go in and maybe the connection will be better but it is not yet. lol the background graphics i’m seeing while waiting are awesome. oh well back to knack.

        • roozbeh, again

          Me too, but we are on an xbox site.

  • E.Nich

    The game looks amazing, I’ll get it…. eventually ;)

  • Guest

    PoS4′s are truly crashing everywhere now

    watch?feature=player_embedded&v=mwPOYEd59yU

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      wha whaaaaa omg get a life. you can still play games. it is psn that is not working right. Also, it only took less than 2 minutes to d/l the update. i just can’t get on psn when i tried which is twice. no worries. maybe one day your mommy will buy you one so that you can stop crying.

      • avi

        actually, amazon’s reviews for the ps4 have nearly a 50% failure rate if you look at the reviews.

        • GmailIsDown

          yes sony messed up the launch big time. all kinds of problems ranging from faulty hdmi port, console overheating, defective/stuck blu-ray drive, controller not syncing, game freezes/crashes/console turns off after a few minutes, etc. it is scary and i think it is a miracle that my ps4 still works.

          • usrev

            the only game I had problems with is battlefield 4 and that is EA being EA. the PC version and 360/ps3 versions are still broken on that game.

        • usrev

          if 100 people buy a ps4, 10 don’t work 90 work perfectly you will probably get 10 people complaining and 10 people praising it, while the other 80 people that are loving ps4 are busy loving it.

          the failure rate is like 1% btw.

        • Liquidfx Xboxdude

          sorry bub mine works awesome. lol plus i am not stupid and got a warranty which those people should have done.

          • avi

            sorry?
            you don’t have to say sorry to me.
            I didn’t say that you were lying about your ps4 working fine. I was just saying that not everyone will have the same experience as you, as is evident by bricked ps4 console reviews on amazon, best buy, etc. Even that chick from the escapist magazine got hers bricked.

    • GmailIsDown

      my ps4 works fine for now. i got lucky. i hope it won’t break in a week or i’ll be really pissed.

  • Florida Tryhard

    this game is free on playstation 4… enjoy your 720p cable boxes…

    • avi

      why are you even here??

      • JayD

        His PS4 overheated and he has to wait for it to cool down…

      • Ivanx360xpira

        2 possibilities:
        1. He´s upset because he has nothing to play in his PS4;
        2. He got red light of doom and he´s trolling while waits it to cool down;

      • Guest

        He’s just being a pathetic paupertroll that needs freebies like a crack addict.

      • IN_YO_FACE_86

        duh because he loves Microsoft.

    • Lucas Sanches Cestari

      it’s 1080p not judge the console because of CoD, ps fangirl

  • beardyman3218

    Is IE on Xbox one fully featured? does it support flash and silverlight, or is it just html5?

  • Bennijin

    What’s with some XBLA titles being £11.99 now? $15.00 titles used to be £9.99, which was too much to ask for most already so why would I pay £2 more than that for some no-mark indie game? Being “indie” isn’t a free pass to grossy overcharge.

    • Florida Tryhard

      because you xbox idiots will pay it…

  • Guest

    Wow, nearly HALF of all PS4′s from Amazon are DOA. LOL, oh $0N¥, such overhype that doesn’t deliver!

    • evilfangs .

      DOA?

      • Guest

        DEAD ON ARRIVAL!

        • evilfangs .

          I can’t help but laugh at PS4 fanboys who brought and have got a broken PS4, but on the other hand, I feel sorry for legit real gamers who got a broken PS4.

          Lets hope X1 doesn’t have problems and if it does my system isn’t one of them lol.

          • Guest

            Yes, it’s hilarious to me that any negative news about PS4 is brushed off as trolling by those same troll PS4 fanboys, but if this negative news was about Xbox One all of these same people claiming it’s nothing but trolls would be bashing MS for having another RROD fiasco all over again, and taking every negative review as gospel.
            This serves those N4G and GAF PS4 fantards right!

          • usrev

            if you think there is a 50% failure rate you are an idiot. I’m sorry but it’s the cold hard truth.

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            so will you laugh if your x1 is bad? if mine is then i won’t cry and i will send it back and get a new one. problem solved.

          • evilfangs .

            Are you suggesting I’m a fanboy? Because I’m not, I’ll be buying both consoles.

            I was planning on buy the PS4 in two years but might wait even longer due to these issuses.

    • Nick Peck

      There is 29 pages of 1 start “doa” reviews. Ouch. Sure, every mass produced item has it’s duds, but that seems like a manufacturing issue and that something wasn’t put together correctly. Wonder how many lot numbers they have to track down. While I find it hilarious for the trolls to have a busted system, I too feel bad for the legit fans pretty much out 400 bones :(

      Will there be a few XBO’s with issues? Most likely, just like every product launch and I’m pretty confident that MS triple checked everything to not have an issue like this. Again, there will ALWAYS be duds unfortunately (I know, I usually am the lucky one), but my fingers are crossed that MS has a solid launch. Enjoy whatever system you have :D

      • Death Dealer

        Indeed, but there’s quite a lot more pages on the PS forums about defective consoles too. This is becoming very widespread and Amazon is telling people that they can only refund or redirect to Sony and wait multiple weeks for a replacement, which would mean RMA stockage has already been depleted too.

        • WARLORD

          Weeks ??? I got off the phone with them 2 hours ago and that told me I would have my replacement by Friday..

          • evilfangs .

            If you have a Sony store near you, you can take your broken PS4 into the store and get a new working one.

          • WARLORD

            I looked. There isn’t a Sony store in my state.

          • evilfangs .

            You must be like me then, living in a dumb lol. I got no Sony or Microsoft store near me, and the closest Apple store is a 10minute train ride away.

      • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

        i saw about half of the review being 1 star so i suggest there’s quite a lot of DOA

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      lol you are still on that aren’t you? what a fanboy. my ps4 works like magic.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      oh and i checked and you are a troll. all of your infor is wrong and i suggest you get a life in a hurry before you become stuck in trollville. i feel sorry you bro. if you just would get a job and stop living in your mother’s basement then maybe you could buy both consoles and stop whining because you are butthurt.

  • Matt Wolf

    Guys, it’s okay if you can’t buy this.
    Microsoft will probably put it up on Games For Gold. That’s how they get us to play their Arcade games.

    • Bennijin

      *won’t

  • Guest

    Is AMD’s Project Discovery the Xbox Tablet many people have been rumoring for a while?

  • evilfangs .
    • Death Dealer

      Sony’s woken up to a nightmare today.

      • evilfangs .

        The nightmare starts on 29th of November when more then only two counties start purchasing they consoles. At the moment Sony is just having a small bad dream.

        • Death Dealer

          I can only imagine…I just hope MS hasn’t made the same mistakes though. I’m importing and it would be a logistical nightmare to have the same happen.

          • evilfangs .

            I kind of feel sorry for them.

            There’s a 59+ page thread about broken systems.

          • Death Dealer

            I only feel sorry for the legitimate gamers among the buyers.
            If the same happens here in Europe on the 29th, then it may very well be byebye Sony as the company is already struggling to stay afloat.

          • evilfangs .

            Some of them have only just registered to that forum, meaning they’re new Sony fans / ex Xbox fans / fanboys who jumped ship.

          • Death Dealer

            Then they faced the hard fact that they jumped on the wrong ship.

          • evilfangs .

            I think they got on the Titanic instead of the Queen Mary.

          • Guest

            watch?v=Cjn2Fq4OPrs OMFG LOL!

    • Ivanx360xpira

      the most overhyped launch ever…fell sorry for the GAMERS that picked a faulty PS4, just hope MS has everything right this time!…but truth must be said about PS4: bad initial games, bad PSN, bad build materials, a lot of tecnical issues and usual bad constumer support.

      • Death Dealer

        Yeah, I guess that’s the worst part of all of that for the legitimate gamers that bought one and ended up with a dud, Sony’s technical support has never been great. I’ve had many support problems with them in the past already.

        • WARLORD

          Ya I was one of the unlucky few how got a bad ps4.. There support wosent bad though. After a hour and a half on hold I got through told them what was happing. Thy said thy would replace it, should have it by Friday…

          • evilfangs .

            What problem did you have? I’ve seen loads of different reasons for the PS4 not working.

          • WARLORD

            Used it for two hours then it shut off on it own.. I rebooted in safe mode witch lasted for10 sec before it shut down again. After that it would not start up and all I got was a palsing blue led.

          • evilfangs .

            Yeah that seems to be the most common one I’ve seen people saying.

          • WARLORD

            Ya at lest I still have me 360 to play

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            sorry to hear that dude. my ps4 is working like it should and i have had nothing but fun with it.

          • Ivanx360xpira

            It seems this is something related with the HDD…I googled it and found this ps4dailycom/2013/11/playstation-4-bricked in the case you wanna try!Good luck!

          • WARLORD

            Yeah that was the first thing I tried.. I pulled the HDD but it still would not boot in safe mode..

          • paul rolland

            so you where part of the unlucky 0.04% of people who report an issue lol

          • evilfangs .

            That 0.04% was a statement before the official release of the console. Back when only about 4500 people got they consoles.

            There is no way now that 0.04% is accurate now.

          • Guest

            It was 0.4%, not 0.04% and it’s way more than that now. There’s also rumors of sabotage now. LOL!

          • Ivanx360xpira

            oh I see…and while everybody is praising PS4 reached 1M sales and faulty systems are popping everywhere the poor chinese students which work at lame conditions at manufactures are starting to be accused of sabotage…this is insane!

          • WARLORD

            Yes but not so much of a lol…..
            I just hope when I get the xbox one I don’t
            Get issues…

          • evilfangs .

            I think we all hope the X1 hasn’t got any issues.

          • Guest

            It’s WAAAAAY over 0.4% now with all the problems being mentioned everywhere. It’s going to be fun on the 29th in Europe.

          • Guest

            AN HOUR AND A HALF ON HOLD? That’s p*ss poor!

          • evilfangs .

            Been reading on the PS4 support forums, most of them have had to wait up to 1hour 30mins+ to get told “We can’t help you, we will send you a coffin out and it will be repaired in 2-4 weeks.”

          • Guest

            Then it is a massive design flaw. But I’m not surprised by this and Sony had this coming stuffing everything in such a tiny box without proper venting. Look at the FLIR images at Planetextech of the PS4 in use. All the heat is concentrated at one location in the console and around the back. Poor airflow in the design is VERY LIKELY!

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            you should have never let it get past the carrier facitlity in your town or city. after that it is dropped off by people who don’t give a flip and will throw it onto your porch or even before that throw into the truck to deliver.

      • evilfangs .

        Yeah I think we can all agree that we feel sorry for the actual gamers.

      • paul rolland

        Ah yes the voice of an impartial gamer lol, let’s forgot get that every new systems have issues at launch. I really never understood fan boybias. Both systems will have great games and net play, I personally will pick up a PS4 first because I enjoy Japanese games like Tales and Idol master, much the same reason I got the 360 for Blue dragoon and Lost odyssey. Love to see where you get bad material from lol Ill be surprised if you find time to play that Xbox one, you will still be on here bad mouthing other consoles

        • Ivanx360xpira

          Good luck and have fun with your PS4/Xbox One, I assure you I will have a lot of fun with mine X1! And yes I prefer Xbox, so what?Maybe because of that I´m posting here and not in PS specialized blog…

    • evilfangs .

      People on IGN are actually still trying to defend the PS4.

      Then again, most of them are Xbox 360 fanboys who had to defend the red ring of death problems, so they are kind of use to it.

      • Ivanx360xpira

        It´s IGN, I wouldn´t expect much. Anyways, If all this issues were confirmed, and it seems to be at least noteworthy, then I wouldn´t expect to see much articles on most games sites about that, once it would be a big punch in the face of the press that bashed MS and Xbox since the reveal…

        Funny fact is that people justify the recent issues remembering RROD, which in fact was a fiasco, at a such stupid point of receiving a faulty console and still defend it. I really hope MS learned about RROD and I would be really pissed if I pick a defective XB1…

  • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

    i was expecting a plethora of information in the last week… Major, drop some bomb !

    Edit: putting the word “plethora” famously used in Three Amigos! on a blog, check !

    • Nick Peck

      lol

    • Nathanzz

      From various media sites, it sounds like MS got them their retail units earlier (relative to launch) than Sony did, and the embargos end on Monday, so we should see a flood of reviews and comparisons then, leading up to their launch events.

      • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

        thanks for the info

        • Ivanx360xpira

          You thank the dude and get a downvote?wtf?

          • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

            lol i know, there’s downvote for everything… humanity is dying my friend

  • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

    all those bad report about the ps4 make me nervous about the X1, i really don’t want to face unfortunate trouble like that :(

    • ryder4life22187

      I’m more or less wondering what they put in it. Just had one in my hands earlier today and the XB1 is the heaviest console in the box i’ve held.

      • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

        its a lot bigger than ps4 too, there must be something.

  • paul rolland

    Really looking forward to the Xbox one launch, I cant wait to see what Sony and Microsoft can do with the new systems, kinda hoping for a 50 50 sales in terms of systems so that Microsoft and Sony have to push each other, This gen gave us Gears, Uncharted so I cant wait for this gen to get into fall swing

    • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

      the hope for a 50/50 sales is totally a good point for both user. We don’t want and won’t certainly be as bad as a wii u. Wii U have high chance of dying in the next 12 month because of low sell

  • Disturbed_Court_Jester

    Why the original Xbox version? it was also released on the 360.

    • John Barela

      thats what i ment was the box 360 versiothey did that one last month
      n why dont they do that one its cheap and a good game like halo

  • ae69ae

    Aren’t we glad the Xbox One is chunky now? aka VCR
    I have a question, If the games are installed to the hard-drive–why do they make so much noise[can't be the blue-ray drive] ? Sony’s problem is probably bad fans or no thermal paste. I doubt they’d forget thermal paste–I did… one time LOL

    ps Xbox One better have thermal paste and good quiet fans.

      you might have a bad unit. there are a lot of bad PS4s right now, with all different kinds of problems. it is like sony forgot to do quality assurance.

      my PS4 is not noisy. occasionally the fan or blu-ray drive might get a bit loud but it is far from noisy.

      and i have been playing killzone and knack for the past 2 days. besides the PSN connectivity problem i haven’t experienced anything else.

      • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

        gmaillsDown do you like it so far honestly ? as good as it seem and everything ?

        • Liquidfx Xboxdude

          i will tell you my experience. it is very good though sometimes unstable but not in a horrible way. for instance, when i first booted the ps4 up there was some issues of freezing but after the update it was smooth as heck. the first noticable thing is the seemless transition b/w games and the dashboard or homepage. it makes netflix movies better, some of them run in 1080p and look like blu ray ( in my experience anyway). that may not be for every movie but the ones i watched it was.

          I have played my ps4 for about 30 hours and it has only gotten better as if it broke itself in and now it has absolutely no lag and no jaggies on any game anywhere so far. there is this 2d/3d shooter that you get for free called Resogun and it is awesome.

          i had forgot about the microphone on the controller, which is high quality, and this woman in the game said something and i about pooped my pants. anyway, the camera is so much better than i thought it would be, even better than the kinect 1. i was happily suprised. the voice controls work great as well.

          I say wait a while and then try and get one once all the bugs are ironed out but def get one b/c even if mine died tonight i would still be happy i got to play it for a while. hopefully the x1 will be just as good or better.

          • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

            thanks to both of you for your honest feedback.

        • GmailIsDown

          not sure if it is “worth the hype” but i like it so far. the graphics are better. the controller is much better. the ways the mono speaker and/or touch screen on the controller interact with games are new and refreshing to me. i am not sure i like the way the blu-ray drive is designed. i think it will attract pet hair like a magnet.

          i am still wary, as my console was assembled by the rumored sabotaged Foxconn Yantai factory in September, when the interns were there.

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        same here. everything but psn for the first few hours has worked great for me. its like the bad press is being made up. people like Guest up there who doesn’t have a name but certainly has an opinion.

        • WARLORD

          Its not being made up.. I got one of the bad ones. And ask any on how is trying to call there support.. Hour and a half wait times or higher… It from trying to rush to many out at one time. I could tell that when I looked at the back of mine to check the HDMI. The screws on both side were half out and loose….

    • Guest

      The Xbox One has much better thermal design than the PoS4. That’s why it has a grill directly above the main fan and on the sides, so there is proper airflow. The FLIR images at Planetextech prove it perfectly. There is massive heat congestion in the PS4.

    • Kieran

      New consoles always have problems at launch, expect it with XB1 too, just hope the numbers of consoles with faults is low?

      I’ve heard the xb1 has been unbanned now according to people on the internet. Which is only right, with just 5 days to launch.

    • Dylan

      My PS4 is super quiet…

      Much quieter than my 360 (elite) and Ps3 (semi-slim)

      • evilfangs .

        Is that because it’s not working? Hahahaha.

        Nah but seriously, did you get a working PS4, was you part of the unlucky “0.04%”.

        • roozbeh, again

          I hope people do believe it is worse than that.

          • Death Dealer

            Because it is? I’ve already seen a few friends complain about their PS4 now as well. There’s something terribly wrong and there’s definitely more than 0.4% with problems of any kind.

        • Dylan

          No it works great.

          I have a feeling it is probably more than .04 percent. Most launches for hardware have failures, if its under 5% then its pretty normal.

          Over 10, then that’s an issue. 25 is a disaster.

          • evilfangs .

            Where and what date does it say your console was made? It should say on the bottom of your console.

          • Dylan

            I hadn’t even thought to look.

            Yantai, China, like all the broken ones (and the rumored sabatoge). September 2013.
            I also ordered from Amazon like all the other broken ones. So I guess I lucked out.

          • evilfangs .

            Dam you got some luck with that console.

          • Dylan

            No kidding! It’s about time I got some, I had 5 360′s go down with red rings, and a PS2 go down with the disc read error issue.
            So far only the Original Xbox is the only console I’ve had with no issues over the whole lifetime. So maybe I was due for luck

          • beardyman3218

            Hope your ps4 does the same as your original xbox, i just hope the people affected get their console repaired quickly, happy gaming.

          • Dylan

            Thanks man.

  • Andre Luiz Vandoni Lima

    Hello Major! I’ve got another question. I pre ordered may day one and the store send me a email telling me that the launch day here in Brazil is November 30th, but i attend to Brazil Game Show last month in São Paulo and on the Microsoft Booth was said that the launch day is November 22nd. Does Microsoft having any problem with the production here? I am a little confusing right now specially if i go to a fiscal store on any Mall and i see my ONE desire there and not in my house after its releases, lol
    Thanks again for your time.

    • Ivanx360xpira

      where you bought yours?I heard there will also be an event at São Paulo during the launch and I think it would be kind of nonsense if they didn´t have consoles to sell…Anyways I bought mine in a small store here in the city I live and the guy assured the console would be at store nov 22. But in fact I´m expecting a delay, you know how things work here: sellers pretend to be serious and we pretend to believe, sad but true (hmmm…great music btw)…

  • Does Not Equal

    Why is everyone talking about the PS4 in the entry for XBLA Contrast?

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      Hmmm……..Why would gamers talk about game consoles? hmmm……hopefully science will unlock that mystery one day.

      • Does Not Equal

        More like “Why would gamers talk about game consoles under the blog entry for an arcade game that has nothing to do with the PS4?”

        • WARLORD

          The game is on the ps4 to. So in a way it dose have something to do it lol fun fact. When I stared down loading it free on psn that when my ps4 died lol…

          • Nick Peck

            lol really? What issue are you having with the ps4? Same as everyone else? Just wondering. Sorry to “hear” that though :(

    • roozbeh, again

      Why do you even care?

      • Does Not Equal

        Because I look at the comments of a blog entry to see what people are saying about that blog entry, not a different subject.

        • Nate Welles

          Is this your first time on the internet?

    • GmailIsDown

      why not? i have been playing PS4 this whole weekend and it is really great. sucks that the game selection is too limited now. and i worry that my console may break at any moment due to the rumored chinese sabotage. i hope that the xbox ones were not assembled by Foxconn student interns.

      and i can’t believe i will be able to get my Xbox One this weekend (and can’t believe i spent over $1000 on the two next-gen consoles, with games, extra controllers and everything. i am broke this holiday season :( ).

  • マリオ

    I guess this was a bad place to look for opinions on Contrast.

  • Vince

    anyone else’s order got cancelled?

    • beardyman3218

      No, where did you order from?

    • evilfangs .

      My mate got his order cancelled through e-mail. He was getting it from GAME.

      • James Bob Atkinson

        Mine got cancelled by game too and I’ve now been waiting 3 days for a call from them. Looks like I’m going to miss out on a day one edition :-(

        • evilfangs .

          My mate said his got cancelled because when he was away his bank phoned up due to GAME taking out £400+ out of his bank and he didn’t hit 1 to accept the transaction.

          Lucky for me I pre-ordered in store and will be paying with cash and trade in card.

  • beardyman3218

    Will I get a temp ban if my X1 arrives a few days early?

    • Death Dealer

      Yes, I think it’s for every non-registered console until the 22nd.

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    the xbox one game reviews are coming in.

    • GmailIsDown

      ups sucks

  • Ivanx360xpira

    Oh I see…I think you will receive it sooner. i just contact the store I bought and the guy said me that my console will be there by friday…really hope he´s right. I hope you receive it asap after launch!Good gaming!

    • Andre Luiz Vandoni Lima

      Oh thanks. I hope so, which store have you bought yours???

      • Ivanx360xpira

        I bought mine in a store near my house, ziliongames.

  • xbox_gamer

    Why sell 360 or ps3 games or dlc online now. Why buy them when they can’t transfer. Just like wiiu is still giving out wii games for club Nin.

  • GmailIsDown

    i don’t understand what you are saying. knack may be mediocre and boring, but i haven’t had any technical problems with it.

  • avi

    Being any kind of fanboy is just pathetic…

  • UltramanNick

    I downloaded the trial for “Contrast” and at first I thought the game was VERY buggy. My character kept “Shadowshifting” into weird places—and in one instance, she materialized in mid-air where all I could do was spin her around. Then I finally got the knack and have made it through a few levels. Not sure I would buy it—-yet.
