I tried out Oculus Rift at a local convention last week and while it's an impressive piece of tech, I feel it needs some fine tuning before they release it to the public. There's still some steps needed to be taken before VR can be fully embraced I think.



cookiex commented on PS4 Launch Sales Close to Wii U Equivalents, 3...:

Interesting to see PS4 and Wii U having equal launch sales in Japan. PS4 has MGSV coming out in less than a month so it's going to hold a bit better in the long run.

In any case Xbox One is bound to perform far worse than either of them in that region.

"NPD analyst Liam Callahan also suggests that many download purchases can be relatively spontaneous, rather than planned ahead of time."

Digital storefronts requiring much less time and effort to locate and access than physical ones probably plays a part in that.

Congo Calling isn't singling Nintendo out. All they say is that Nintendo as well as other tech giants like Sony, Microsoft, Samsung etc. should follow Apple in reporting stuff like this and not purchase minerals from conflict-ridden areas where the profits could potentially fund warfare.

And most gamers don't know/care about issues like this so the Nintendo "hate" has no root in this (otherwise they'd call out Sony, Microsoft and other tech giants as well).

Do these numbers include digital sales? I would suppose so since the numbers I've seen for WWHD are about 800k retail, and here it's over a million.

Very nice results for Pokemon, almost double of what Black & White 2 did lifetime and it's quickly closing in on Black & White 1.



cookiex commented on Ubisoft Refuses to Comment on Watch_Dogs Wii U...:

I don't know why random GameStops in Italy would get the word that it's been cancelled when the game is still available (and always has been) to purchase on Ubisoft's own website. Wouldn't Ubi remove it from there first?

If there's any EA game I'm looking forward to it's Star Wars Battlefront (I re-played the original on Xbox recently and it's great fun) but after the BF4 fiasco I'm worried that EA is going to release it in a horrible state just like Battlefield.

And if they think Nintendo is a great partner why not show that? Lazy 3DS ports and no Wii U support at all/constant trashing won't cut it.
