    Full high quality trailer up now...

    [spoilerbutton][/spoilerbutton]

    I'm not really sure I care about a single player mode tbh but I guess it could be cool. Always up for a game with giant robots though, I'll probably be picking this up on PS4.

    In other news it seems that a sequel to Ori and the Blind Forest is also coming, it's called Ori and the Will of the Wisps. As someone who adored Ori and the Blind Forest I am super happy about this.

    It's said to support 4K video playback, have a 2tb HDD and be about 40% smaller than the current model.

    I actually really like it, I was thinking of selling my xbox one though as I never use it and it just sits there being something else I need to dust from time to time lol so yeah, probably won't be buying one of these.

    Prey announced, a reboot of the classic 2K title. Originally a sequel but it was canned for a reboot. Arkane Studios (Dishonored 2) will be handling the development.

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition announced for PS4, Xbox One and PC. A remaster with better visuals and all DLC plus mod support on consoles.

    Excited to play Dishonored 2 but man, some of the animations in the gameplay video looked real unpolished, hopefully they sort that out.

    Skyrim will no doubt sell a bajillionty copies again, I would probably have picked it up for the PS4 but apparently if you own Skyrim and all the dlc for the PC you get it for free, which is pretty damn nice of them if true (I assume this is because they realize you can already do everything they've added to the Remaster on the PC with mods anyway).

    Really happy that Prey is still a thing too.

    Pretty miffed they referenced a new Wolfenstein game but didn't show it.

    I feel like Microsoft are maybe guilty of a bit of mixed messaging, just a few months ago they seemed like they were planning to maybe tone down the Xbox in favour of the PC, and now we get not one, but two new Xbox models.

    I must say, the whole phase out the Xbox in favour of PC thing never made much sense to me. I would have thought the huge appeal of the PlayStation or the Xbox was that it was a controlled experience. You can just plug a disc in and go, and if something goes wrong chances are Sony/Microsoft will be able to help you without any effort. There's so much that go wrong with a PC that Microsoft probably can't help you. I feel like the only people who ever thought it was a good idea were the smug, insufferable "PC master race" wankers, because unless you're a hardcore computing enthusiast, PC gaming probably won't work for you.

    Whats with all these console's with bells on, I think its a bit of a con. Spend £300 on a new console then , hey here a more powerful one that you could have bought.

    They're following the mobile phone model. Plus tbh, it makes sense to have technology advance rather than have you stuck with technology for 5-8 years and it gets outdated.

    Anyway, it's not like you have to upgrade, everything is backwards/forward compatible, there are no PS4K/Scorpio exclusives (sony actively doesnt want it, MS have apparently said there won't be) if your happy with teh Xbone, then great, if you want something a bit more powerful and runs games smoother, get the high end version.

    As somebody who brought a PS4 in late December, a couple of months before the 4K rumours started, it's hard not to feel slighted by this.

    What you haven't pointed out, is that whilst excluded from making PS4K exclusive games, modes or features, Sony are actively forcing developers to make games run better on the PS4K as of October this year. Even if you don't need the enhanced capability, you are expected to use it anyway. And how long until a game that's basically unplayable on a standard PS4 gets released or Sony says screw it and allows PS4K exclusives? This is essentially a gigantic middle finger at early adopters of the two consoles, but at least Microsoft have given a fair amount of advance warning for Scorpio...

    Why wouldnt a developer want to take advantage of the technology available to them, I dont see this as a bad thing. As long as the game runs at 1080p and 30fps for the next few years, then you have yourself a console (PS4) that will likely get to about 5 years old before you really need to upgrade. (2013-2018)

    I mean, isn't that tech in a nutshell? Something better is always just around the corner.

    Anyhoo MS had a pretty solid showing this year, that said I think I'm really gonna have to sell my xbox one while it still has some value, literally no reason to have it for me when I could just play the few MS games I'm interested in on the PC.

    Final Fantasy XV looked so bad, and I can only assume people blaming the player didn't play the demo as it played just as bad as it looked then too.

    The Scorpio sounds interesting, packing some real power by the sounds of it, although 4K gaming with no compromises sounds a bit ambitious (although I guess that depends on what they consider a compromise really).

    Not sure, but it already came out that developers weren't exactly thrilled about it. (The Neo that is)

    You make it sound like PC gaming is difficult/complicated or something lol for what it's worth, I've had more problems with my PS4 than I have with my PC.

    I wouldn't really have a problem releasing a more powerful model buy hey the PS4 is not even two years old, not even half way through it's life cycle. I can't imagine the majority of current owners would shell out more for the upgrade considering the benefits it offers. Sony have to be careful not to piss off current owners of the console, ditto with Microsoft.

    It came out in Japan February 2014. That means you can have brought it at the first possible opportunity less than 2 and a half years ago, and it is already outdated.

    And I don't trust Sony to give that much of a crap about ensuring games run well on the standard PS4 once the PS4K is released. Especially Sony Europe, who seemingly couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery.

    It's not the gaming itself that's difficult, but PC games demand high performance specs. The problem I foresee is that, no longer capped by the specs of the PlayStation and Xbox, developers run wild, games demand increasingly high performance and then people that don't know what they're doing end up having to either buy a new PC or tinker around with the components of it, just to play the latest FIFA, and what could possibly go wrong with that?

    And that's before you have a bunch of 12 year old idiots who don't know what they're doing, trying to play CoD and pirating files with a ****-tonne of viruses on to their machine. Whilst their poor parents have no clue what the hell the child is doing or how to fix it.

    Unless Microsoft can somehow lock all of Windows down and control it (and judging from the reaction to Windows Store, the more experience PC gamers won't let them), there's no way PC gaming can be a replacement for console gaming. There is just too much that can go wrong, if you don't know what you're doing.

    PS4 is closer to 3 years old now (november 2013) Xbox 360 and PS3 gen lengths were the exception, not the norm. Normally gens last about 5 years or so.

    I think the Xbox leaning so hard on the PC turned me completely off getting an Xbox. Like, I have pretty decent PC, yet there were a couple of times here I might have been swayed into getting an Xbox One. A new slim model at a cheap price point? Neat! Forza looked pretty cool, as did Recore, Scalebound, State of Decay 2, Halo Wars and Dead Rising 4, not to mention it has games already that I have an interest in like Halo MCC and 5 and Sunset Overdrive but with them all coming to PC, you just lost a console sale. Granted, the one cross platform release out so far, Quantum Break, was a fairly broken port, and no one wants to use the Windows 10 store, but still.

    South Park: The Fractured But Whole looks bloody hilarious, highlight of the show for me. For Honor also looks up my street. They had a decent conference really, but Sony is the one I've actually been waiting for so I hope they don't let me down.
