Well, 2013's rendition of E3 is upon us and the tar and feathers are ready for Microsoft. Will Sony finally reveal they have a similar setup with their system? Will Nintendo laugh in their faces..then announce a price drop since their Wii U has done really poorly globally?

I'm more excited to see what Retro Studio announces. My cousin has been working on a game there and he can't tell us what it is until it's revealed.

I hope more Wii U games are announced too! We some exciting titles to help bring this console to life.

A WiiU Price Drop is desperately needed. I think that and some real amazing titles will be revealed for it.

For Xbox One, for the love of god, please reveal some redeeming features. I mean besides Kinect (which isn't/hasn't been impressive) or the ability to watch TV. Seriously, start giving us legit reasons to buy your console.

PS4: I know I'm buying it eventually. I just want to see more of what I can expect to come.

The XBone was just announced for $500 when it launches. Pretty sure Nintendo will be doing just fine price-wise

MS' conference overall was just...bleh. Nothing that really stood out that was exclusive for the system. They didn't do anything to dispell worries and with MS having canceled media roundtables it makes it seem like they're not interesting in addressing the glowing neon elephants in the room.

Lol the Villager from Animal Crossing looks fun!

I can't wait to see who else is going to be in this game. :3

Also, I read a while back that they were going to go in a slightly different direction with this one as far as gameplay goes. So I'm curious to find out what exactly is new...

I dunno
adding a few characters to another installment of a starting to dry out franchise vs. new system that went a little further than most people expected
still far better than microsoft but I feel Sony presented more interesting content than Nintendo ( which makes sense as the Wii U has already been out for awhile)

I was like meh about KH3 ( I mean, waiting 7 years isn't very nice at all... and no, I do not count the hand held games.) but the heartless surfing bit is kinda cute.
I have a Bookface I have a Bird Sound my snark level is over 9000 : ]
2014 Cosplay (mayhaps?)
Compa- hyperdimension nep nep
Heather- Silent hill 3
Poison Ivy- Batman

The problem with Sony's presser is this: it was more dependent on MS screwing up than it was Sony being good. Take away the MS bashing and all they really had was FFXV and KH3 (which have also been revealed to be coming to the XBone) which adds up to a mediocre conference.

Besides the Xbones stupid issues that we already knew about, Microsoft had a solid presentation showing off many exclusives.

Online multiplayer on PS4 requires playstation plus subscription.

Microsoft required a subscription last gen as well. It sucks that Sony is following suit this time around but eh. I'll be honest, I'm not as into online multi player with consoles. I buy a console to curl up in a ball on my floor and play some rpg by myself. I play something on Steam if I feel the need to interact with a human being xD

I'm happy the PS4 won't be region locked. I hadn't cared about region locking until I moved in with my husband. I had a 360 which my sister would be keeping and he had a japanese one which he brought to the house. I couldn't play pretty much my entire 360 library on his. Any trip to gamestop required him to look up if the game was region locked or not (and most of the time it was.) . We got a PS3 for Christmas and the 360 has been dusty since. It's been nice to play japanese games ( like idolm@ster) without any hassle.

That and their DRM stance has gotten a LITTLE muddier

http://www.gamefront...es-online-only/

It seems that while the system itself will have no restriction regarding secondhand titles...they're still allowing publishers to make their own restrictions if need be. So basically the same online pass we've had for the past few years.

Super pumped about KH3 and Mirror's Edge 2. It's about time those games are finally coming out. All I need is Half Life 3 and my life will be complete.

Once they put together their new engine, I believe that is when we will see HL3.

So. Xbox just reversed most of their controversial policies for the One system. Making the real difference that the PS4 will be $100 cheaper. Any thoughts? Here's the link to the announcement .

I'm just wondering how publishers and developers are going to react to this. Let's face it, the DRM shenanigans were more than likely done to try to pander to publishers who complain about used games CONSTANTLY and now with MS backtracking on that we could see some backlash from publishers

Publishers can balk all they want but they also have to realize the extremely negative PR that came about from this move. Doing so puts the DRM onus on them now.

I meant backlash towards MS; without that required DRM they've basically lost one of their biggest selling points towards 3rd parties so there might be a lack of exclusive headed their way. And 3rd parties will NEVER give up on DRM, not as long as they keep making games whose budgets are more expensive than they should be.

"Exclusive" is a fairly relative term these days, depending on the console. Uncharted and Last of Us, for example, are exclusive to Sony. Tales of Vesperia was an exclusive to the 360...then sometime later they were able to make a new version for Sony. As it is, there isn't a whole lot of pressure for third-party exclusives now. Third parties USED to provide a healthy chunk of exclusives, once upon a time. Not so much anymore. They can make better profit in multi-platform games.

As to the argument about third parties pressing for DRM - virtually none of them are doing so anymore. The majority of publishers, including EA, have realized that it's not worth it. Ubisoft has backpedaled, Bethesda and Gearbox never really had issues...the only one that MIGHT still want DRM would be Activision. That's it. (Heavens forbid they lose money on their CoD cash cow.) The general view from third-party publishers is that DRM is bad for business, save for ensuring folks have geniune copies when playing multiplayer.
