Oh man, they had me at "prediction."

I worked in the prediction/automated recommendation industry for 7 years, and one of the oldest and best companies doing it, and let me tell you is it ever a load of crap being sold to people who don't know how it's supposed to work by people who willfully ignore the fact that it doesn't work.

Take all the worse parts of "cloudsourcing" and then run it through some TOP SECRET PROPRIETARY ALGORITHMS and then all of the data you've been paying people to steal off of Last.fm becomes a valuable commodity.

What I'm saying is, get ready for mainstream gaming to get even more samey and uninspired.

chumbucket
Agreed. These announcements are more and more a boring bs circle jerk than ever.

It's not even a secret algorithm, it's just low-rank matrix approximation.

At some point isn't it going to wrap around and become infinitely unique and inspired?

I'm throwing my lot in with the indie developers like Notch.

A while ago I floated Chris Roberts's kickstarter a few bucks to help fund his next Wing Commander title 'Star Citizen'

It'll get made a cold day in Hell, and he probably used the money to buy an old army blanket and a can of beans to take back to his hobo camp, but a man can dream.

dairyqueenlatifah
Us gamers man. xD
SolRo
The whole thing is like a surreal version of what sony's publishing arm does to game developers...set a launch window at whenever, and you put some shit out there on that day, done or not.

one of the executives didnt even know what the controller looked like until a couple days before he made the presentations.

vidya games.

I think I might sit this one out.

Ive always been a Dos and then Windows gamer.. I'm really excited atm about the prospect of steam/valve forcing nvidia and ati to release good linux drivers and then devs being able to release games on linux...
I'm imaging an install of archlinux on my gaming pc with no GUI.. Nothing but graphics and sound drivers and my games!! :)
Also apparently left for dead already runs a good bit faster in linux using openGL than direct3d in windows after only a few months work on it (as opposed to years of optimisation for direct3d/windows)

David Perry is a horrible person.
MacGyver Style Bomb
Whoops, I was thinking of Doug TenNapel.

poorwill
No, Dave Perry is horrible too. Actually, I don't think there is anybody on that stage who isn't at least a little horrible. Jon Blow, Mark Cerny - all pretty unlikeable cocks.

So the PS4 is going to be a PS3.
Nikon
Not quite: one set of PS3s could play PS1 and PS2 games. This new PS4 will not play PS1, PS2, or PS3 games.

MacGyver Style Bomb
It can through cloud streaming. All the details are pretty murky at the moment. Although it should be able to run software based emulation of the PS1 and 2.

SolRo
You'll be able to play any of your PS1-3 games as long as you buy them again online.

MacGyver Style Bomb
Has anyone actually confirmed that you have to "buy them again?" I've seen a lot of claims, but nothing pointing to actual facts about this.

Quad9Damage
IT'S BLIZZARD! ...talking about Diablo 3...

So glad I don't work there anymore.

The next wave of consoles is probably the one that will turn me into an old fart.

Used games being a thing of the past? Fucking parasites. For the game to be a used game IT HAD TO HAVE BEEN BOUGHT IN THE FIRST PLACE, so nobody's "losing out" on sales of the game - just re-sales. You don't see ikea pushing for a law proposing the illegality of re-selling their furniture on craigslist. It's fucking stupid - they just see a revenue stream that HAPPENS to contain products they've already sold being re-sold and they get their fucking money boners going crazy, wishing they had a piece of it. As if they are entitled to the money someone gets for a resale - as if anyone in HISTORY has been entitled to that? Fucking stupid. You sell something, it's now cut off from the parent company unless you include its lifetime warranty or some garbage.

I guess i'll switch back to being a pc-only gamer, occasionally breaking out my 360 for some Trials Evolution track creation or some Soul Calibur/Racing Game/Skate/Fight Night. Whatever.

Welcome back to the fold, Gmork. Now you can spend your time upgrading the living fuck out of your completely customizable system with amazing hardware and wondering when the developers will get their heads out of their asses and actually put out something that will make full use of the available technology instead of pandering to a shitty console that only gets upgraded once every four to five years.

At our ages, arthritis is moments away. Let the freedom of the keyboard/mouse soothe thy tired knuckles and free them from the tyranny of the cramp inducing controllers.
