I gotta admit I am shocked, sony really have taken the next gen already.

UK still get shafted with the exchange rate though, as usual.

The xbox one as probably got a slightly better looking games line up, but they are just demos anyways, but they haven't got anything that makes up for the shitty authentications and lack of lending and re-selling.

What I find wierd, is that sony were one of the first to mention licenses and this was just before the PS3 came out, they sure changed their tune, consumer power FTW :-D

One of them will change over time, either sony puts in controls (or the devs/publishers do it their own way on PS4) or more likely, M$ will have to eat their words and remove the 24 hour check and re-selling controls, they will have to go back to having the disc in the drive to play, it's the only way.

That's the thing with all the MS DRM stuff, none of it is set in stone as it were. The clauses are written so that they can change the terms however and when ever they want. So they can either relax the conditions or make them worse.

I gotta admit, even with all the M$ hate, the more I see of E3, the more it looks like the xbox as the better exclusives, like Halo, Forza, Titanfall, but even then, some of the other exclusives are F2P with in game purchases which people are already getting mifffed about, WTF....... don't they read all the news, they have already said that the in app type model is ready to burst and people are getting wise to it.

Big Big transition period this for gaming and M$ are messing up bigtime before it even starts.

Lending games, console price point, resale of used games, no need to check in online every 24 hours, no region locks, etc.

Looks like Microsoft have royally fucked themselves sideways, Sony's still in the shit financially though - although they made a profit this year (for the first time in 5 years) it was only because they sold off a lot of high value assets. If they hadn't they would have made yet another massive loss.

I find it odd that Microsoft would have chosen to announce such ridiculously draconian user policies, given the very obvious backlash, without some assurances from the major developers that they would be implementing the same system on the competition's console (or not develop for it if it was not possible).

Sony (and their fanbois) have short memorys, because they did the same just before the PS3 came out, they were so confident and arrogant after the huge success of the PS1 and PS2, that they made all sorts of stupid demands (I am sure one of them involved licenses for games).

BUT they learnt by their mistakes and listened to the feedback and didn't go through with them. (well except all the warnings regarding how hard it was to develop games with the cell processor, but at least they chose to go the x86 route this time).

Surely M$ can't be that stupid and arrogant that they just go through with everything regardless of feedback.

All this console talk made me turn my 360 on today for the first time in 6 months :)

We need to get everyone on again for a red dead redemption game or GTA 4, they were feckin funny.

Who's up for a session on the 360 tomorrow from 8:30 onwards? we can agree a game to play then, it could be a live game or something.

Post if you're up for it.
