You have to admit, though, PR-wise, Sony is off to a great start.

I suppose. Whenever I see Sony announce something, I usually don't care or I can see what made them make that move. Like when Microsoft said DRM, Sony trolled and did a quick take back stage of lending a game. There wasn't even any question about DRM for Nintendo, but for Sony fans, that was still a big deal.

Sony does cater to fans the most, IMO, but that still doesn't change that I think Nintendo is doing what I enjoy more.

On the Tomb Raider/Wind Waker discussion I don't think the sales of either game had anything to do with console owners being desperate for new games, Remasters (none of those are really remakes) usually sell because the original have hardcore fans willing to pay again for a better looking version... As to why Tomb Raider sold better on PS4 than XBONE, I think its because its a game more oriented toward single player..... single player games normally sell better on PS3 while multiplayer ones sell better on Xbox, Call of Duty for example sold more on Xbone than PS4

@Blast I know you don't keep up with other consoles, but GOTY/"Deluxe Editions" have been a thing these past few years, and they tend to sell well. That's what that Tomb Raider: DE is. A Deluxe Edition. It's not the same exact game, it's the game with additional content.

@CanisWolfred What's the amazing additional content to TR: DE besides amazing graphics? A crappy multiplayer and all the costumes? Is this a joke?
Let's be real here! Its the exact same game with pretty graphics! That's all it is!!!!

@SCAR392, there wasn't a question about blocking used games on Nintendo, but there is still the open question on Nintendo's DRM system for digital games which consist of simply tying them to your console....... and I still waiting for an answer on that, my main complain about Nintendo (with region lock a close second)...

Personally, I bought the Wii U Wind Waker HD because I missed the boat on it. I had never played it before and I appreciated Nintendo's port of the game to fill the drought. Square Enix's situation is completely different. Tomb Raider sold fairly well but SE said themselves the game failed to meet sales expectations. They re-released the game with the new generation consoles as the "definitive version" to try and re-coup sales. The PC version of the original is arguably just as good looking if not better than this cash grab released by Square Enix.

I'll probably get a PS4 in a few years when the price has lowered and some good JRPGs have been released..I'll buy one before a price drop if the "Tales of" series makes the jump from PS3 to PS4, though.

Ports of games even last-gen games can be effective at times.

Was Mariobro4. No, I'm not taking off my backpack...it's important.

DLC. Just like every other GOTY/Deluxe Edition. And that's kind of a big deal, since it means more bang for your buck.

In the case of Tomb Raider the DLC was kinda worthless but yah in general, lot of people skip games at launch and wait for GOTY/Deluxe editions because you can't know beforehand whether the DLC would be worthwile or not.... For example I've hold on buying Arkham Origins because there's a chance the Mr. Freeze DLC would be worthwile and if it is I'll wait until a release with all DLC is made even if the vanilla version is on sale

Regardless, I did not intend it to be an insult. It was intended to put things into perspective. If you took it as a sign of disrespect, I apologize. Though I am still more than willing to prove that observation right...

@CanisWolfred shakes hands with you in friendship Looking back on it... I kinda overreacted and I'm glad we sorted this out. You are among the list of users on this site where I respect their opinion automatically.

To be quite honest, rereading my posts I can see where you would've gotten mad. I've said the same things you did before, not so long ago...

Wait... You guys are done? C'mon... My popcorn's not ready yet.

In all seriousness though, this is no surprise. Makes me laugh when I see people say that Nintendo should axe the Wii U and bring out a new console. Same crap that put Sega six feet under more than 15 years ago. Best they can do is try to turn it around with games like Smash, Mario Kart, X, and others and try to hope for the best. If anything, even if it turns out to be like another GameCube, Iwata seems to be in the correct state of mind to create a better console for next gen. Hopefully that QOL thing turns out to be a winner.

Props to the PS4, none can deny that it is a quality console with promising games on the way.

I guess i'll summon my "Only time will tell" card in attack mode. Nobody knows the future, so let's just sit back, pick up a controller/handheld, and play video games. Congrats is given to those who get it.

It really baffles me to see the PS4 sales numbers. I mean seriously there is NO GAMES for the system. I truly believe the PS4 will be awesome 1 or 2 years down the road but definitely not now.

The numbers simply proves people fall for hype.

@Kevin1991 I thought the PS4 and Xbox One would start out slow, but I guess not (And didn't everyone hate the One or something before?)

Also, I'm still seeing the launch commercial for the PS4 on TV, it's been months right, and it's still on.
