Some Xbones are eating disk. Hopefully it's a small percentage. I'm glad I'm waiting to get one.

Now I see why kenzo hates the XBONE so much, he wants to eat all the dick himself.

Wait for the steam box bro. Why get another console when you can get another PC instead?

So far, a working PS4 is a magical thing. It's seriously worth it just for the line-out headphone jack on controllers alone. I watched Arrow on Netflix last night with the sound pumpin' in the dead of the night and didn't bother a single soul a comfortable distance from my setup. If I wanted such things in the past, I'd be spending hundreds of dollars on expensive-ass wireless audio solutions. Now, I just plug any 'ole earbuds into my controller and it's a done deal. Fucking magical ass shit right here. It's basically a new paradigm, and it's kinda embarrassing that MS didn't think of this one first (they'd rather you buy their expensive, bulky, proprietary, and retarded mic set instead that doesn't output game audio).

PS4 doesn't support bluetooth headsets. But if you have a USB->Bluetooth adapter, you can plug it in and connect via USB.

If you just want to talk to people you can use the headset that came with the PS4.

I can't figure out what any game on a new console offers over Dota. Why would you want to own either of these things?

Wait until after everyone plays them over the holiday week, then decide. The feedback from this extended play time for the country is going to tell which console is either working better or if they are both the same.

Quick status update. I've played very little video games for some reason. But when I have I've played the Killbors. I beat the campaign and played a bunch of multi. The campaign is alright but not great. I feel it had a bunch of elements that would of made an amazing game but for some reason it's kinda dull. I like the attempt at openness in design. I like the inclusion of gadgets. I like the plot focusing on the racism inherit in the Killbors premise and not focusing on a bunch of Space Jar Heads running around corridors stumbling upon the doomsday devices. But everything is kinda like whatever. Multi is pretty fun though.

I have however watched a bunch of that weirdo Yongyea Metal Gear videos and now I'm hyped again. Metal Gear is my skull again... I need that fucking game.

I stream games some times. Come and watch www.twitch.tv/darfox8 These are my Highlights.

So, I've has a PS4 for a few weeks now. Love everything about it, even if the library to justify purchasing one isn't quite there yet (IMO, average joe gamer should prolly wait a good 6 months to a year). But the best part of this is easily, and I mean easily, the 3.5 stereo jack on the controllers. It's such a fucking game changer, it's not funny. I can play shit all I want and not bother anyone with loud-ass speakers in this house with paper-thin walls. I've also gotten remote play working on my Vita too. It's OK. I probably need to either hook my PS4 into our router via LAN (not gonna happen) or do the direct ad-hoc connection so that the video quality doesn't suffer/stutter. I played some Asscreed this way and while it worked I found myself not the happiest with how things went simply because the game requires acute timing and deft control of all buttons to play - which doesn't quite workout with the Vita. However, I can't wait to play more slower paced games like RPGs this way. I also tried doing remote play from like, 450 miles away - that was a shit show (but might have been the terrrrible internet of my hosts').

I'm gonna play a bunch of Asscreed4 (which is dope), try to suffer though Killzone's campaign, then I'm gonna hook up my PS3 again and try to tackle some backlog. I still haven't even touched games like FF13-2, ME1&3, and Heavy Rain that I've been itching to play for years. Also I need to really hunker down and beat AA5.

Killzone Shadow Fall just had the most awesome update. It added team voice chat, balance changes, and COLOR BLIND SUPPORT! Now those instances were I run around the corner and see a guy and my brain can't process whether he's friend or foe fast enough will be gone forever.

It also made the objective marker in single player easier to see which was a weird problem it had. I love it when they add new shit, it's like Christmas.

Because more players always equals more fun. Thats why the Geekbox TF2 server is 64 players.

No it doesn't eX. But more players = options and variety. And capped at 6v6, there's very little room for options and variety here. And for a game that's multiplayer-only, this is pathetic.

Edit: Also, can you imagine how fucking lame TF2 would be if it was only 12 players max??
