Sony Vs Microsoft. Who Won? #E3 #SonyE3 #XboxE3

Sony just destroyed Microsoft at E3, although Sony has a pretty average selection of games on launch. Both prices have been confirmed and are as follows:

PS4:
Console: $549
Controller: $99
Games: $118

Xbox One:
Console: $599
Controller: $99
Games: $118

Microsoft did announce a redesigned Xbox 360 which is smaller and quieter than the current models, that your Xbox Gold sub will go across to Xbox One and that you’ll be able to download two free games per month. Also has a partnership with Twitch.TV so you can broadcast your games live.

Sony announced that there won’t be any restrictions on used games, no online authentication and that online multiplayer will now require PlayStation Plus. PS4 is region free. They announced the console would be priced at $399 in the US. Anyone notice the $150 mark up in Australian Price? That’s right, Australian Tax strikes again.

 

Update: EB Games confirms that the $118 price tag on PS4 and Xbox One games is only a placeholder.

I kind of want Kreig, but I don’t want to pay $15 for the privilege.

Steam sale, anyone?

Don’t Starve!

I imagine Don’t Starve is how Tim Burton sees the world. It’s a quirky survival game that plays a little like Minecraft with a dark sense of humour. read more

Gender Stereotypes in Gaming

Below is an essay I’ve written for my SOCA1010 major essay. The question I was asked is how the media reinforces gender stereotypes. I decided to go with video gaming since it’s a current topic, is relatable to my readers and it’s an interesting topic. Enjoy. – Rade read more
