Seemed pretty linear on rails to me.  I'm not complaining about that, it's Uncharted formula.  Maybe I didn't see enough of it.  It'll be day one for me, I was wasn't blown away by the visuals like I remember being by Uncharted 2 and 3.

 

Yeah still on rails, but visually the size of the city was bigger than anything we've seen in Uncharted before.

TV TV TV... DUDE BRO SHOOTERS... now where have I seen this before? Can't quite put my finger  (Y) on it... :rolleyes:  :rofl:

 

Honestly it was nowhere near the focus MS gave to it when they launched the xbox one.

There's a difference between when half your show is TV talk and FPS games, and when it's a few minutes. I guess some of the closet COD fans are going to get salty :p

Um, everything they showed was running on PS4 hardware.  They didn't show a "level", but they did show work that had been done within the system.  That wasn't CG.

I cannot belive Sony took all that time to announce a kickstarter for Shenmue 3 instead of just funding it. They basically took that old man up on stage to talk about his "dreams about making it" and kick him in the balls.

 

There's no way only 2 million dollars will fund that game. And the stretch goals! An extra million (half the entire dev cost) will only bring it to 4 more languages and some "cinema shorts". That's totally out of whack.

The only console it's coming to is PS4... take that as a hint. That being some money most likely changed hands. Why stop there though? We've seen how high funds can go on Kickstarter for hyped projects. Companies don't need to empty their pockets when fans are.

 

It's already over half a million... https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ysnet/shenmue-3 The biggest stretch goal of 4 million will probably be hit. Easy money, and low risk for investors in a title that isn't exactly going to hit annual COD sales.

I'll be honest guys i think i'll upgrade my PC next year and skip this gen and hope MS is serious when they say they care about PC again and brings Halo 5 to PC after a while (cause Fable is not cutting it and is certainly not caring about PC). I'll probably get a PS4 when it will be cheap to play Last of Us and Journey.

 

Nothing i've seen in both press conference comes remotely close to my level of excitement for Kindom Come Deliverance and i'll certainly want to play that on a brand new PC.

Do you really think both MS and Sony did not try to make a deal for this game? Shenmue 3 is kind of huge.

 

The guy probably wanted to work alone on his own game. Like some other big kickstarter projects he will probably get external funding if he can show to people with money there's a market for the game.

Is it really? I played Shenmue and didn't see what all the fuss was about, and I was a pretty big Dreamcast fan.

A little, but I get your point.  Also, you can already get a PS3 cheap with TLOU and Journey.  *shrug*  

 

IMHO, Sony did some really good things, but I don't know what it was -- I feel like honestly they needed to walk up and do a "$299" in order to "win" E3.  The audience didn't seem all that into it.  Didn't watch MS's show, but BC + mods on Fallout 4 + modular controller were some big hitters that random small bits of exclusive content don't seem to match.  I want more from Last Guardian before I get too excited, I want gameplay from FF7 remake before I get to excited, I won't buy Dreams because honestly I'm not that creative but I'm excited to see what other people do with it.

 

I dunno, just not looking forward to anything coming up in the short term.  Maybe I'm just old and jaded

You aren't getting $299 until sales dip under MS NPDs a few months in a row. 

 

But yes, you're a grumpy old jaded man :p

They totally could have worked that into a contract. He obviously signed something to get onto the Sony stage and PS4 first and he'll have to deal with investors anyway for this "external funding" since 2 million isn't going to make that game. It was a massive dick move by Sony.

Wow, I didn't know Sony were in such a bad situation that they would need a Kickstarter campaign to fund a game.

 

HOW ABOUT NO!

So unless MS got to have some involvement in this there should have been absolutely no help from Sony, even if only (as we can't prove if they funded) to have him on in front of MILLIONS of people, because that's being a dick move? Pretty sure his kickstarter at almost 1 million will have him saying anything but Sony you are ######.

 

I guess some of you don't know what it's like to finish Shenmue 2 and have to pretty much grow up and have your own kids before a glimmer of hope becomes reality for Shenmue 3.

Yeah he'll have to deal with investors but it's probably easier to deal with investors who care about money only than investors who care about money too but want to eventually own all your ips, your studio, you dream and probably your mother too like EA.

I dont have to stop complaining... I paid my $400 entry like the next person did.

 

Nobody gave me a PS4 I worked my butt to buy one.  So I got every fight to complain if something isn't to my liking.

 

If u helped pay for it, them I would shut up, but until u finance my gaming habit...

 

Have a good day (I actually mean this).

I just watched some clips of the games that were demoed. Uncharted 4 and Horizon: Zero Dawn look amazing. Easily the best looking games of the show do far.

I like the Uncharted games, but Guerrilla's 'Horizon' just looks insanely great. I loves me some RPGs, dinosaurs, and robots. That game is everything I never knew I wanted.

      Apple TV, Disney+, and more to be available on the PlayStation 5 at launch
      by João Carrasqueira

      Sony is slowly revealing more information about the upcoming PlayStation 5 console. After introducing us to the console's internals in a teardown video and revealing the console's software experience, the company today announced the media apps that will be available on the PlayStation 5 when it launches next month.

      As shown in the UI video last week, media apps will reside in a dedicated Media tab on the PlayStation 5's home screen, and you won't need to download them from the PlayStation Store, which will focus on games. At launch, the PlayStation 5 will already support quite a few major streaming services - Apple TV (including Apple TV+), Disney+, and Netflix, Spotify, Twitch, and YouTube. Post-launch, more apps will also make their way to the console, including Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Peacock, and more.

      In addition to the media apps, Sony also announced that a Media Remote will be launched alongside the PlayStation 5, aiming to make it easier to control playback on these services. You can also use the Control Center interface revealed last week to control music playback while you're doing something else.

      Since the Xbox Series X and S are based on the same software experience already on the Xbox One family, all the services available there should also be available on those consoles at launch. While Apple TV isn't officially available yet, Microsoft and Apple are already testing the service with select users, so it could be set to launch soon.

      Assassin's Creed Valhalla has gone gold, Ubisoft announces
      by Namerah Saud Fatmi

      Ubisoft Montreal took to social media platform Twitter to announce that its upcoming Assassin's Creed title has finally gone gold. That's dev industry jargon used when a video game is out of the development stage and a final master copy of it has been prepared. Once a title goes gold, it is ready to be printed onto physical discs and then distributed.

      Now that Assassin's Creed Valhalla is ready for mass production, it shouldn't be too long before copies of the game are handed over to distributors - especially considering the fast-approaching launch date.

      The latest instalment in the elaborate Assassin's Creed universe is scheduled to release on November 10 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X and PC. As the PS5 will launch a few days later, Sony's next-gen video game platform will get the title a few days later on November 13.

      Pre-orders for the Viking themed game are currently open and can be placed on its official website. Both physical and digital versions of Assassin's Creed Valhalla can be pre-purchased at the moment. Xbox Series X|S users can opt for Smart Delivery while pre-ordering. If you're a PC gamer intending to buy the game, a detailed list of system requirements for AC Valhalla can be found here.

      Sony brings its digital camera webcam software to macOS
      by Jay Bonggolto

      Sony released today a new version of its digital camera webcam software that allows customers to use its cameras as webcams on macOS. The software tool was previously made available to Windows PCs in August.

      The Imaging Edge Webcam solution is now available to download on macOS versions 10.13 to 10.15. It brings support for a wide range of Sony's recent digital camera models. It lets users connect a Sony camera to their MacBooks for use in videoconferencing, for example, with high-quality video calls.

      Supported camera models include Sony's E-mount cameras such as the ILCE-7M2, 7RM2, 7S, 7SM2, 6100, 6500, and more. It also works with the A-mount series like the ILCA-77M2, ILCA-99M2, and ILCA-68. As for vlog cameras, the software tool supports the ZV-1, DSC-HX95, DSC-RX0M2, DSC-RX100M5A, DSC-RX10M2, DSC-RX1RM2, and more camera models. Overall, 36 models are compatible with the tool.

      You can download the software solution here and follow Sony's guide on how to connect your camera to your MacBook. The download page also contains the list of supported models. Sony is not among the first camera manufacturers to offer a software tool designed to turn its cameras into webcams. Canon, Fujifilm, and other companies have already offered a similar tool for their respective cameras.

      Sony shows off the PlayStation 5's user interface
      by João Carrasqueira

      As we approach the launch day of Sony and Microsoft's next-generation consoles, information is starting to come out at a more rapid pace to build up excitement. Microsoft revealed the list of games that will be optimized for Xbox Series X and S at launch, and Sony has shared a video and blog post going over the PlayStation 5's user interface for the first time.

      The video shows a lot of what you'd expect, starting with the Control Center, which is quickly accessible by pressing the PlayStation button at any time. This interface will give users access to a handful of options such as online friends, notifications, and sound settings, but the most notable part of the interface here are the cards lined up above the menu.

      These cards can contain a variety of things, such as news related to games the user is following (if they're waking up the console on from sleep mode), and recent screenshots or videos they've captured. But the most interesting ones are the activity cards, which represent activities that can be performed within games, such as specific levels. These cards not only make specific activities more quickly accessible, they can also tell users how much progress they've made in a specific activity, and the amount of time left to complete it. Once expanded, these cards can also show additional objectives for the level, and if the player finds themselves stuck, developers can even provide hints for these objectives directly in the PlayStation 5's UI.

      Other elements of the UI that were shown off include a new party system, with notifications and messages showing up in an overlay over the game. Parties have new features now, and members can begin sharing their screen, while other members can watch their gameplay in picture-in-picture mode while playing their own game. Parties can also be used for sharing game captures like screenshots and videos, though you can also share them to Twitter if you prefer that.

      We also got a look at the home screen (pictured at the top of this article), which is what you'll see when you power up the console after turning it off completely. Here you can see your library of games, along with corresponding news or activities you can jump into. While media apps are also set to be available, they'll be placed in a separate tab, so you'll only see games when that's what you want to focus on. The PlayStation Store has also been baked into the home screen as its own tab, rather than working like a separate app.

      If you'd like to see all of this in action, you can watch the full video here.

      Apple TV app is now available on Sony's smart TVs
      by Jay Bonggolto



      Sony announced today that the Apple TV app is rolling out to some of its smart TVs. The app is available to download now in the U.S. via a software update, starting with Sony's X900H series.

      That means you can now access original content from Apple TV+ and Apple TV channels as well as new movies and documentaries including The Morning Show, See, Defending Jacob, Ted Lasso, Greyhound, The Banker, Boys State, and Beastie Boys Story. You can also watch a selection of curated recommendations.

      In addition, you can subscribe to channels available on Apple TV like SHOWTIME, CBS All Access, and Starz directly on the app. And you can share your subscriptions with up to six family members using your personal Apple ID and password through the Family Sharing feature.

      Today's announcement gives a boost to Apple's efforts to bring Apple TV+ to as many platforms as possible. Last month, LG's 2018 OLED and Super UHD TV models added support for Apple TV. It also looks like Apple TV is coming to Xbox consoles soon. By the end of this year, the Apple TV app will also be available on Sony's select 2018 sets and most 2019 and 2020 models.
