    Heads Up: Playstation 4 in stock at Amazon

    Since you really haven't had an opportunity of any significance to get one since it launched, I'd argue the very availability of the console makes it a hot deal, considering anywhere else you'll find it you'll be paying +20% over retail.

    Assassin's Creed 4... Get it on Wii U or PS3?

    The Wii U isn't getting any of the AC4 DLC.

    The Wii U is done

    Only way I can foresee Nintendo being able to make a run with this console is a price drop to $199 and a pack in of significance, ie 3d Mario, etc. According to industry insiders, they are already losing money on the console @ $300 due to the price of the tablet components, so I'm not sure...

    The Wii U is done

    The WiiU is done by any rational measure. 220k in the US during Xmas shopping season is abysmal. The leadership at Nintendo is mismanging the company into the ground, and yes, while they have sizeable cash reserves, this console fails to provide anything the market desires. The proof...

    The Wii U is done

    WiiU Nov Sales roughly 220k. They're trending Dreamcast numbers now. They need to kill it and get back to the drawing board.

    Xbox One Costs $90 More to Build Than PS4

    Even taking the Kinect out of the box, the Xbox One is still more expensive. DDR3 prices are about as low as they are going to get, whereas the GDDR5 prices still will see cost reductions as time goes by. I'm really wondering how MS is going to get to any sort of a price parity with their...

    The Xbox ONE APU is significantly larger than the one in the PS4 due to the inclusion of the ESRAM. Bigger die, more $$.

    [Poll] Is your PS4 experiencing hardware/software faults?

    Everything's been working as expected. Loving the system !

    Well after spending a weekend with the PS4, it's a clear winner in my book. The hardware is crazy small and seems to be engineered well overall. Remote play works like a dream. (I played Ass Creed on the shitter this weekend on the other side of the house :P) IMO, the OS and UI are a huge...

    New PS Vita redesign and Vita TV hardware

    This is incorrect. The remote play functionality works across the internet as well, same as it does currently on the PS3 and Vita.

    PS4 OS overhead uses 3.5GB of 8GB system RAM

    So, before the "upgrade" of 4 GB to 8 GB, games had use of 512 MB of RAM? Does not compute. Unless of course they've added a whole load of OS functionality. (Likely the multitasking.) At the end of the day, I'm still in for a PS4.

    Company of Heroes 2

    Pay2Win? What game are you playing? Any of the DLC is the same abilities that are in the box just arranged differently. They are slightly different and by most accounts, worse than the ones in the box. To answer the other question, if you like COH, you'll enjoy COH2. It's different...

    So, why would one buy an Xbone over PS4?

    I've owned both consoles this entire gen. I will not be picking up a XBone. Sony wins my business for at least taking concerns of gamers as an important part of their strategy. Furthermore, I really don't appreciate being told, "if you don't like it, go f-k yourself" by MS. It's...

    Company of Heroes 2

    The bonuses are nothing like they were on COHO. Not even in the same universe. They are small bonuses that allow you to customize. It's a good middle ground.
