None of those things on their own are going to move systems. But when the holiday games come around and sales pick up, it might sway a few people.

But the difference is that you can get Netflix on just about everything that has a screen and an Internet connection, or download the walking dead on a bazillion different video services.

Or they could have funded a dozen or two high quality indie/XBLA games or 360 remakes for what they likely paid. If they don't have compelling exclusives, then make them. I'm sure everyone knows by...

Bayonetta was a niche title, nobody cares about rayman, and once square went multiplatform they never went back. This is a total regression and I hope square ends up regretting ever making the deal.

I'm a little surprised that none of the bundles have kinect. Did they even mention it at all today? It's like they've completely disowned it.

I do have a 6 year old and a 4 year green drive running 24/7 in a nas since day one, so I wouldn't worry too much about the warranty.

Actually the way it is makes sense..d3 is very poorly multithreaded, so it's a case where the slightly higher clocked CPU is making the difference. There's still an excess of GPU on the ps4, so they...

They don't list what's supported within mkv though. Most of those are codecs, some are containers like avi and mkv...and for avi they get more specific, but not for mkv. And oddly they leave mp4/m4v...
