Got my PS4 Preordered :D

Sony wins E3. They did not disappoint. Consumer ownership and trust with no DRM. Destiny. Final Fantasy. Kingdom Hearts. Infamous. The Order 1886. $399 price point.
They had one job and they did *not* screw it up. I can’t wait for the PS4. So excited. Thank you based sony.
Potentially better than previous years, mostly because they actually showed games. Of course that is marred by the fact that MS recently confirmed the DRM situation on the XBOne, which means I will never be getting one because hey, I like consumer rights and won’t support anti-consumer practices.
But true to standard Microsoft form, the conference had WAY too many shooters. Microsoft is copying Playstation Plus with free games. Except those games are 6 years old compared to the ones I can get with playstation plus so I’m still not interested when I can go down to gamestop and pick those up for $5. Red Gear Solid Redemption *cough* I mean MGSV looked amazing, but Ill be picking that up on a PS4. Ryse looks to be a yawn-inducing QTE-fest. Dead Rising was ruined, turning from a silly over the top zombie game to a Walking Dead Clone. Witcher 3 looks amazing, but Ill be picking that up on PC where it belong anyways.
Lastly that price point. $500 for the Xbox One. LOL. Just… LOL. That price is just as absurd and hubris-filled as Sony’s initial price for the PS3. The only people who would buy an XBOne at that price are the hardcore. You know, the group that MS has disenfranchised the most with their decisions over the last few years on top of the DRM debacle.
Heres to hoping Sony doesn’t disappoint tonight.
Edit: Also, what the hell was the point of Master Chief’s cloak in the Halo 5 trailer? Hes wearing Mjolnir armor. What? Is he afraid hes going to chip the paint or something? :P
Even as someone who sells the games to hundreds of people, to this day I still don’t see what the big appeal is to Call of Duty. When I look at it I see “Generic Military Shooter #369”, and would rather go and play a more unique fps. Maybe I’ve simply played too many shooters to the point where a game like that just doesn’t do anything for me anymore but…
It actually makes me feel a little out of touch with the gaming community.
What. The. Fuck.
Can this console get any more anti-consumer? Jesus tapdancing christ.
First off. That name is just stupid. Xbox One, Wii U, Playstation Vita…? This is apparently the generation of silly nonsense names. Secondly - I am a gamer. Spending half the reveal on stuff that has nothing to do with gaming, 75% of which I can already do on my smart tv, is not going to sell me on a console. Yes its cool. Its also largely stuff that can be done elsewhere. Third - Show the games! Yes the PS4 reveal showed a lot of stuff Im not actually interested in, but at least it showed some games, and actual gameplay at that. Fourth - All the TV stuff is cool for those interested in it - but what it tells me is that MS is just going to double down on the US market at the expense of Europe and Japan. As I tend to love quite a lot of games that come from those places…. thats really not giving me a lot of faith that when you do show games, they’ll be ones Im all that interested in. Then I find out from Wired that the system will charge a fee for used games? You’re losing me here.
Outside of like 3 shows, I don’t watch or like TV. I don’t care about sports. I don’t like call of duty. I had low expectations and MS still managed to undershoot them. Its like Microsoft is embarrassed of itself for being in the industry. I started out this gen being an avid supporter of microsoft, and over the last few years they’ve completely lost me.
So I joined my friends youtube channel “You Gotta Play This” for an episode on Link to the Past. Check it out, and hear us talk about zelda and other random gaming tangents. For those that don’t remember, my name is Jason, so you know which one is me hahaha.

Nice part about recovering from surgery is that now I have an actual excuse to just sit on my butt and play video games
