I didn't realize she wasn't voicing the character as well. I thought it was weird having her be a character model for two games released in the same year. This makes more sense.

Guys, should I get the "combined" Bioshock 1+2 edition, or is it better to go for separate ones. It doesn't make much difference in terms of price. Not sure if there are downsides in the combined version...

After just watching the Microsoft press conference, I think COD's days are pretty much over as the biggest gaming franchise. Pretty much every shooter that's been shown for the new consoles looks better than COD: Ghosts. Titanfall looks fantastic. Battlefield looks fantastic. Halo at 60 frames per second. Etc., etc., etc.

Say what you will about the console reveal, Microsoft's E3 conference was one of the best I've ever seen. Look forward to EA's, Ubisoft's, and Sony's. Should be lots of cool stuff.

Only a failing console would push CoD that hard anyway. It's going to be out for like 7338392929 other systems, and will look better on PC.

I can't find a video to watch the press conference retroactively, so I'm going to have to base my thoughts on fanboy reactions. The gamefaqs poll results are hilariously negative.

Aww, I didn't realize E3 was already going, or that I would miss all of it because of work

Holy shit, this fucker starts at $500? With Kinect built in, of course. Nobody wants that, but too bad.

You can build a much more powerful gaming PC for that much, and it looks like Titanfall will be out on PC.

How dare they sell it for the same amount as last generation's Sony launch price?!

I don't get fanboys.

$500 tends to be the standard price point for new consoles, does anyone remember what the 360 originally sold for when it was first released? I'm pretty sure the PS3 was $499 to start and I even have a feeling the PS2 was the same...

$500 is way too much for a base. I remember the launches for most systems up until the PS3 being $200-$300.

A blu-ray player was retailing for hundreds more in 2006 than a Kinect is today and actually had a beneficial impact on the games BUT $500 was a terrible price for PS3 and it significantly impacted their sales early on. With the way the console itself has been received so far, XBox One is going to have a hard time getting off the ground with a price like that, especially when 360 is going to have a lot of the same games for a while.

Fuck Kinect. It's a lame excuse to bump the price up that won't be worth taking advantage of in the next gen. Peripherals should stay peripherals, and I should have a say in whether or not I purchase them. They should have left it optional and let us use the Kinects we bought a year ago (yeah, I own one and rarely use it).

Which was why it lost the Next Gen war.

Anyways, I recognize that Sony base models are always going to cost more now, because they got away with it, basically. But if the PS4 base model is going to be cheaper than the XBOX base model (which is what it's looking like), I don't have much of a question which one I'll be purchasing. The cost of things hasn't gone up exponentially since the XBOX 360 came out, in regards to the cost of tech/games/PCs/Etc. For a system that isn't really looking at improving as a console so much as trying to be a media system, I'm not interested in dropping that much cash when I already have a smart TV.
