Out with a bang: The Last of Us lets PS3 exit with head held high

Re: Exclusives

So lets say that Naughty Dog were given the task of converting to a lower powered console with less disc space?

How would they fit say 50GB on a DVD, handle a processor with less cores and less power than their target one?

Very badly.

Put it this way, Sony owned IPs are written for a computer using a Cell processor using CellOS, low level graphics calls not related to other systems, a certain memory model. So a Window OS using DirectX will be a LOT of work.

Exclusives are where any console shines

Exclusives

It is exclusive because Sony own the studio, they own a number of top studios.

Note that the PS4 was developed from their feedback.

Re: @MJI: Windows love hate

It is a pain, us older PC programmers were used to various DOSes with Netware, then we get used to the Windows GUI, then they break it.

There are times I would LOVE to get out of IT, Hmm small B&B by the seaside sounds nice.

Re: Windows love hate

Actually Windows Server to me is an oxymorom.

SMB2 is an effing nightmare.

I have little Linux exposure.

I really liked Netware from 4.1 to 5.1 now THAT as a NOS I could trust

Windows love hate

Well it is at the stage that I cannot use a Windows PC without it annoying me somehow.

This PC, reboot, icons all move, doesn't run my old software,a bit bossy. VERY bossy with updates.

Home PC, file open/saveas ect is a piece of rubbish and drives me mad. A bit Tellytubbyish

A new laptop at work, too much fluff, keeps hiding things. Stupid menus until start something was installed

I have not yet found an ideal operating system, and I can see why tablets are taking off.

As to Windows server 2012, we want the menus back, why have server OSes got worse since Netware stopped?

Re: Game value

Decent campaign you want to play again.

Make us want to play it again.

Make any multiplayers addictive and FUN

So far longest SP I have is over 120 hours for £20

MP over 800 hours for £38 + all DLC + new controller

Even a fun game may get 2 SPs and my sons may have a go.

Glasses

What is it with this silly fashion of Joe 90 and 1960s NHS frames? Look you look like a prat!

Prices, mine cost me a LOT, frames were a minor part.

People who wear glasses and do not need them - eg no lenses, especially of the Joe 90 variety are twats of the highest order.

There is serious brand snobbery among us who need glasses. We rip the piss out of you if you think we mean frames, frames are easy, are they light, are they practical, are they the anti 1960s NHS, do you NOT look like Joe 90.

We save it for the most important part.

OK I am a Nikon lens snob, but other makes are good such as Zeiss. My frames are D&A lightweight metal pre Boots crapification.

Re: Selling games

Isn't it the case that most games being sold S/H are either poor games or annual rehash games?

Decent games get kept.

I can understand the reasoning behind online passes but not a levy on games.

Re: Not just Steam

I have had bargains off PSN as well.

Journey with Unfinished Swan.

Motorstorm RC for PS3 and Vita.

Can't sell any on but they were all cheap to begin with.

I will buy games I cannot sell on IF they are cheap to begin with.

But then I haven't bought full price day of release since November 2011, and will not until June.

Re: The future of gaming lies elsewhere IMHO... Coatsworth

Neither, you play through it like a film or a story, nothing wrong with the idea, NDi just does it so well.

They are just great games which you remember long after you have played them.

The start of UC2 is one of the best starts to a game ever.

If someone says there are no good PS3 games I am going to mention the Uncharted series.
