It was pretty obvious KI was going to have a low amount of characters, only 4 characters revealed as of now and it comes out in 3 months. It's like people think fighting games are easy to make or something, they spend as much time on balance as they do making the game.

And original KI only had 11 characters, I think skull girls had 9 and that was $15 compared to the 8 here for $20.

It wasn't the amount of characters, it was that some characters wouldn't be ready by launch.

Here is what we know; Sony has PS4 passed FCC hardware certification in July. They also, according to leaks, finalised the OS 1.0 a few days ago.

However, we heard nothing about the Xboxone FCC certification. And without the certification, MS is legally not allowed to sell the console in the United States.

Has MS even delivered their blueprints to the FCC? If they haven't, they wouldn't know when the console would be approved, and as such they won't know when they could start selling.

Well, an era is to end soon, one fraught with good and bad.... but most likely to be remembered for the bad.

Meh, it probably won't work out.

There's always been a group of investors clamoring for the Xbox division to be spun-off, because it's a division of the company that has poor ROI, compared to the money-printing machine called Office & Windows.

It's basically an investor's game of trimming away some fat away so that the company's P/L ratio becomes nicer looking.

However, this type of pressure basically forces Microsoft to be conservative. They'll be forced to make sure the Xbox division is run efficiently, and not be a money-pit through excessive wastage of money.

I remember hearing about that investor with that 1% stake in the company. I don't think anything serious is gonna happen from ValueAct.

Didn't Gate have something like only 6%? Even 1% will be enough for MS to response.

Selling Xbox division will be foolish in long term. The console itself have always been a trojan horse for MS to sell other products and get people into their ecosystem. Granted they manage to turn that trojan horse into a battering ram and trying to turn that back into a trojan horse again after consumer outcry but it's still a key factor for them to tap into the consumer market.

They already got the corporate market cornered, where else are they going to go to expand their company?

I like the wallrunning and titanfall looks pretty fun overall but people are making it out to be the second coming which is silly. Games in the past have had vertical movement so it's nothing new. There was crysis series multiplayer, and if you want to go extreme on the vertical movement there was the descent series.

What do you think fuels COD Sales? The single player story?

True. At least, from what I've seen, they're trying to blend in some elements you'd expect from a proper SP campaign; further observation will be required to see how well it pans out.

It will be interesting to see how many of the 'episodes' have actual objectives aside from 'kill all OPFOR'... and how scoring will be weighted so as to encourage folks to actually play as a team and work towards said objectives as opposed to simply pursuing KDR (an obsession with which is alleged to infest the CoD playerbase). That aside, the simple fact of the battlespaces being presumably of an urban/industrial area should force teamwork: Titan operators might have effective force multipliers at their command, but venturing into these areas, with their plethora of means for infantry to take cover and find good angles on vulnerable points, without infantry support is foolish at best.
