That's an incredibly impressive launch! I wonder what their launch sales in Japan will be? Have to say, having one to play with, it's not hard to see why it's doing well, it's a great piece of kit :).
1 week ago on PS4 surpasses 2.1 million consoles worldwide
Great to hear you're all enjoying it, and getting into Killzone. It and Resogun are the two launch standouts for me, and I have no idea what some sites were thinking when they hammered Killzone in reviews. Also have BF4, but it's also parked, I'll wait until they've finished the game before I try playing it ;). Happy PS4ing, Team PS4A :).

Looks pretty flash, will be picking this one up on Friday :). Sounds like US players have worked out the worst bugs already for us as well ;).

Intriguing times indeed :). While it may happen, I'm kinda hoping Sony Santa Monica moves on from God of War, or at least puts it down for a bit - I think that it's run its course, at least in its current form, and it'd be great to see something new from them.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Which PS4 games is Sony working on?
Well played all :). Thanks for info on Tearaway Dolph, looking forward to that and no mistake (I feel a bit bad, but had to focus gaming finances on PS4 at launch, so Tearaway's probably a post-Christmas play, but it _will_ be played).

Looks very slick indeed! Have enjoyed all the Killzone's to date, and this looks like it could set a new high watermark for the series, all being well :).
4 weeks ago on Killzone: Shadow Fall launch trailer released
Interesting - I wonder if this is a tease of CoD going fully sci-fi down the track?
1 month, 1 week ago on Call of Duty: Ghosts Extinction mode revealed
Well said Stef :). I'm actually in favour of DLC, in a way - it means die-hard fans can get more, and it is all optional, and most of the bigger stuff is usually reviewed somewhere so we usually have some idea what we're getting. I dislike it when it becomes exploitative of course, but at least it's still optional, and the demographic for consoles is a bit more clued into these kind of things than the broader mobile demographic (where the emotional exploitation is often undertaken on far less savvy and more vulnerable customers, and in a far worse manner).
SlayHunty - fair enough, I'll personally remember both, but your tastes are your tastes ;).
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Things I’ll remember about this generation (but wish I could forget)
It's a good trailer, looks slick and sets up an interesting background to the game, here's hoping GG take advantage of the potential they've set up :).
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Killzone: Shadow Fall story trailer focuses on the Vektan and Helghast conflict
@orbilator Yup, +1 from me as well - it's a fairly crowded launch window, and early next year's a bit quieter, so they'll hopefully not suffer from the delay sales-wise. Still very much looking forward to the title (and The Crew, but that's a bit further out, so the delay's not a biggy there).
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Ubisoft delays Watch Dogs and The Crew until fiscal year 2014
A top list that :). To my shame, I've only played around half of 'em, but that's partly because it's been such a good generation for games!

@djedw1234 @wishingW3L Not necesarily, I'm a PC gamer and think he's got his head on straight ;).
2 months ago on Why haven’t you joined the PC Gaming Master Race yet?
Look, a person with a gun, standing in a heroic pose, with a master-chief-esque helmet on ;). Still, I'd say it's the right approach for the crowd they're trying to hit through the cover, so all good :).
2 months ago on Destiny cover art revealed; new trailer coming soon
Dat be some good gaming. Are you going to write up your impressions of the Eurogamer Expo Dolph? I'd deffo be coloured interested, but deffo no pressure :).

Sounds great, will grab this for sure, great to see coop working its way into the Killzone experience :).

Sounds excellent, thanks for the review Mitch :)
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Lone Survivor: The Director’s Cut (PS Vita)
Nice work Team PS4A :). Haven't got GTA V or Killzone: Mercenaries yet (will definitely, but all in good time), but totally agree that TLoU is amazing :). Will be interesting to see how GTA Online turns out....

@RedRocBoy Technically, both the XB1 and PS4 have significantly more powerful GPUs and four times the memory or therabouts, as well as a substantially more powerful CPU. The more powerful GPU and RAM provides for greater texture details, greater draw distance and more complex lighting effects. The more powerful CPU allows for more complex animation and AI. Visually, there's nothing on the Wii U now (almost a year into its life) that comes close to what we've seen from Forza 5 or Killzone: Shadowfall.
This is not to say the Wii U can't compete on gameplay however - while there are games that push the simulation side of things, the vast majority of games on the PS4 and XB1 will also be possible on the Wii U. Further, there are heaps of great, innovative indie games coming to all three platforms that focus far more on interesting gameplay than pushing the GPU's shaders to the limit, or cranking GPGPU as far as the hardware will allow.
It's also worth keeping in mind that we're well into the diminishing returns to power of beefier GPUs and CPUs - so while the Wii U is less powerful than the yet-to-be-launched machines, the differences in graphics and gameplay won't be as large as the difference in power suggests, and to most gamers they won't matter at all. I know people who can tell the difference between DVD, downloaded 1080p vids and full-quality 1080p vids coming from a Blu-Ray, but I know many more people who honestly wouldn't notice the difference between the three, because it's not as big as the jump from VHS to DVD.

Nice work Team PS3A :). Look forward to reading plenty of PS4A :).

There's no way the Wii U will stand up to the XB1/PS4 technically, but there's also no reason it can't support very entertaining and original games - it's a step above the PS3/X360, and they're home to heaps of quality interactive entertainment :).
