I completely get what you mean, because I'm very picky with games myself.

But my mentality towards this is that since it's free, there's really no harm in trying out a few of them that you normally wouldn't at all.

Although, atm I'm playing Muramasa Rebirth so those PS+ games are collecting cyber dust until I'm done

I'm sure there are games you would never intend to buy but would actually enjoy if you played the game, that's what's so good about the IGC, as long as you have the bandwidth and hard drive space lol.

I just signed up myself, I was slightly interested in getting X-Com, Saints Row 3rd and Vanquish but just not got around to them since my backlog was so big I couldn't justify buying them. Heck I still have Injustice and Bioshock Infinite unopened....

Edit - I hope that the july update for US PS+ has Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, if not I might sign up for the PAL PS+ as well and grab that before it leaves the rotation in a few days time. DmC is also coming August in PAL, no way I would pay for that game but I'll gladly rent it via this method.

Boh XCOM and Vanquish are awesome, but hard as balls

Amalur you say? I didn't get a chance to buy it when it first came out...

As oppose to these Exclusives such as Infamous: Second Son, Killzone: Shadow Falls, and The Order: 1886 are all PS4 exclusive, not PS3. It shows that these games require the best up to date system.
It doesn't show anything, actually.

Between trying to give a 3 episode grace period for every subbed anime every cour and between the games I specifically buy AND between playing LOL with my friends... if there are games out there I don't want to buy but would enjoy, it's not worth to spend what little free time I have trying to find those hidden gems among all the gravel.

Maybe once I get a Vita that might change though, since I find the Android market to be woefully devoid of decent games that I find myself always looking for games to occupy my 'in between' time.

Honestly, I don't know if it's EA or MS's decision here to cross-port to 3 platforms, but doing that instantly destroys Titanfall's potential as a system mover.

Even more so thanks to the 2014 release.... it's going to be competing with some heavy hitters like Destiny.
It'd be EA's decision. They want Titanfall to be the next Call of Duty, and the only way to do so is to have as much penetration as possible. Even if it releases in June 2014, the Xbone install base is going to be 5-6 million at most. A 360 and a PC release will give EA a much better chance of getting enough sales.

On the other hand, EA also took Microsoft's money to make Titanfall an exclusive in the assumption that the Xbone will dominate North America and the UK like the 360 did. But with the pre-order numbers in, and the low allocation of the Xbone, this doesn't look to be the case. I imagine that EA's financials on Titanfall don't look all that good, and they're going to jump to PS4 as soon as the exclusivity contract runs out. This lateness is definitely going to put a damper on their adoption rate.

To be fair, Nintendo of America doesn't have very much authority - all the shots are called by NCL. It's a stark contrast to how much influence SCEA and SCEE have in the Playstation division.

There have been very few repeats so far. Sony's more likely to offer different games instead.

It is when it's compared to the Xbone and PC. EA wouldn't have brought Titanfall to the 360 if they thought that the numbers were there for the new consoles. The same goes for all the third party publishers (at least for 2014).

Swedish retailer lists Demon’s Souls 2 for PS4


Interesting turn of events? Or big messed up?

Most likely a mess up considering the history of retailer's accuracy with game release details. I doubt Namco Bandai is going to release another title that overlaps so heavily with it so soon.

I wouldn't be surprised though if there's a port of Dark Souls 2 in development for the next gen consoles but the possibility of a new Demon Souls by From Software is very unlikely for now until they finished Dark Souls 2.

Maybe at the Tokyo Game Show? It is just a guess but it is most likely.

Gamescom (Aug. 22-25) is the most likely time for Sony to announce when the launch will be in North America, Europe and most other territories. They didn't specify a month, so they were aiming for late October pending manufacture and software production. On the hardware side, all indications are that there will be a lot of units available at retail, so October is certainly in play. The software side is still a big question mark, so that's what will hold Sony back.

They'll announce the date for the Japanese release then. There's not enough attention at TGS for it to host something as important as the worldwide launch.

If it's Demon Souls 2 than Namco Bandai will have nothing to do with it since Sony own the Demon Souls IP. Also a Demon Souls 2 released in say 2015 on a PS4 helmed by Miyazaki, the producer of Demon Souls and Dark Souls (he stepped down for DS2...) is "different" enough to Dark Souls 2 released in 2014 for Ps360.

I remember back when the PS3 first launched, at the waiting line Staff members of PC Gamers approached a couple of potential customers waiting in line for their own PS3. PC Gamer gave them an offer, that the two men would each receive a top of the line Gaming PC rig in exchange that they sign a waiver to not pick up a PS3 for a couple of years.

I wonder if PC Gamer will pull off that same stunt with people waiting in line for the PS4 (or the Xbox One for that matter)?

I don't see how. Free stuff just to not buy something right now? Unless that something is food, shelter, medicine, or gas, I don't see how it's dickish.

I'm pretty sure that Demon Souls 2 is already in production - the only real questions are which studio is handling the project, and when the release date is.

I doubt it. The PC platform was in a lot of trouble in 2006, so PC Gamer may have felt a need to publicize it. Now, it's a very different story as indie games have found a huge amount of popularity, crowd-funding like Kickstarter has revitalized some of the old PC genres, and the most popular games in the world live mainly on the PC. PC games have become ever more easy to access while game consoles become more and more like PCs. There's no need to garner cheap publicity when there's already an ever growing audience for the platform.

As an aside, why would the Xbone's media features hold any attraction for PC gamers when they can already do all the featured functions and a lot more besides?

The implication was that a top-of-the-line PC gaming rig was superior to a PlayStation 3.
