    @VeryPC can you whack down a preorder for Knack, please.

    I was in game yesterday looking at their list of PS4 titles and that's all that interested me... the other stuff is just generic-brown-FPS, halo-clone and a bunch of games that have been pushed back.

    [Posting in the thread so the people who are interested know what game I chose.]

    As a side-note: I shows how much I go on there, they remember that I prefer retail PC games over digital...

    Will do.

    TBH I was tempted to request call of duty dog. [SHUDDUP that's what it's called now.]

    PS4 [hard to get at launch] + CoD [highly wanted and hard to get game] = ebay megabucks.

    I'm very tempted to do it.

    Sell it now for loads, then buy a new one later for RRP if I still want one.

    I'm hoping Sony reverse the charging for online, I doubt they will though. With the consoles being so close in spec it'd be the thing that gives them an edge over Xbone.

    Sony plan to offer everything xbox has...butbin separate packages. To buy the same level of service you need to shell out around £80 a year compared to MS £40

    I know I am out of the console loop by quite a distance but what you have to pay to use it online?
    What's the justification for that?

    With MS the pay for online guaranteed server uptime, party chat on cross games, secure payments, and play online with friends.

    Sony offered theirs for free and numerous times were hacked, taken down and offered nowhere near the level of service that MS did.

    In comparison to PC, its a small cost. As to play the games as they come out you need to upgrade hardware, buy teamspeak/ventrilo servers, game servers etc every month...this can add up to a lot of money.

    Not on the 360 it wasn't.

    That was a peer to peer conmection. The only server was the shoddy matchmaking one MS forced devs to include.

    All EA services for the battlefield games, Fifa/Madden/NHL, Medal of honor, Need for speed etc all had dedicated servers, not P2P. All MS games were done on the cloud/online services, Halo or Forza for example.

    It was predominantly the COD series which was P2P.

    and here I thought you were all excited about Assasin's Creed 4 Black Flag. There's something called a "Skull Edition" that comes with a bunch of extra gubbins and is still within the £60 budget:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Assassins-Creed-IV-Black-Flag/dp/B00BSR6IV4/ref=sr_1_5?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1383557223&sr= 1-5

    Tempted?

    I'm gunna give you a chance to change your mind just in case - confirm what you want us to order for you and it shall be done.

    Al

    EDIT - I bet you'll get AC4BF on PC though won't you? Knack looks like a smart game actually. Just confirm your choice and we'll get it ordered.

    If only South Park: The Stick of Truth was not pushed back. Could that have been a contender @X-13?
