Jimquisition: New Generation, Old Bullsh*t

You can always just switch to PC fully so we can "force" them (by them I'm saying MS, Sony & Nintendo) to use an universal platform without any exclusive games.

Oh, how I dream for something that will never happen because of greediness and the console wars between these companies.

OT however, I fully agree with you Jim. There is no "innovation" in the games that were presented whatsoever. Just sequel, sequel, sequel to existing franchises with boosted up graphics, oh how wonderful!

Yes, there are a few new IP's that have popped up but I can't say that they will be system sellers. Watch Dogs is the only interesting one from the lot, but that is multi platform anyway so doesn't really work. Everything else is all we have seen before, like Jim said <"new generation" but same old bs>.

Mr_Terrific:
I found this interesting, and sums up my feeling on the Jimquisition in general. Nothing but half truths and all of his dtoid fans just take his word for it, instead of actually researching. He's doing this for the hits people....

"Notable industry figure Jim Sterling recently did a video on what he hated about the PlayStation Meeting. At one point, he said that he fully understood why the PS4 couldn't play PS3 disc games because they had to move away from The Cell, but that there was "no excuse" for why it couldn't play PS3 PSN games. Jim, they are developed on The Cell too, they're like disc games, but not on a disc. That's the excuse. He then said that the PS Vita can play PS3 PSN games, so the PS4 should be able to. Nope. They have to be ported, redeveloped. And it's easier to downscale visuals, than upscale. Come on, this is simple stuff that everyone knows, don't say stuff like: "The PS Vita can handle PSN content on a PS3", unless you actually mean they bought a PS Vita game and just happened to download it to the PS3. Which you didn't, you seem to think I can put Journey on my Vita and it'll run fine. The cross-play titles are not the same game, Jim."

There is some truth behind the mass negativity but we are ignoring the positive. How do you criticize a company for being too samey when they have promised 2 brand new IPs in Beyond and The Last of Us as well as at least 4 during that PS4 show? Pure trolling in my opinion.

Yes I noted that too (Bottom of page 4 had a bloody good rant on it). Either Jim lacks any kind of knowledge of how programming and processing architecture works or he wouldn't have said something that mind bogglingly dumb.

Suddenly it seems that 2 random people know more about their console than a game journalist and entertainment figure. Shocking I know.

I'm sure it'd be a pain but I'm sure some of the PSN ps3 titles weren't developed with the cell in mind, or hell just take the PC code on multiplatform games and rework it to the PSN. Now ya we won't see stuff like tokyo jungle but junk like Dreamcast sega classics should be available on the PS4

Here's a change to plug my shitty Blog. Adressed to Mister Sterling

Yeah, desktops are by far the cheapest and most modifiable gaming powerhouse (in the long run.) I got my 8 core processor on sale for $119 and don't even get me started on memory, they practically give it away. The graphics card is by far the most expensive part clocking in at about $500 for brand new off the shelf, but usually you can find a second gen one for about the price of a new console. Assuming its not a total overhaul and just an upgrade its much more affordable. Not to mention the arbitrary (but not discredited) amount of money you save by being savvy to steam sales. Plus at the end of the day a console is simply an entertainment system. You can't do any real work from a PS3 but I can do all my actual work from my desktop while playing games, or listening to music, or surfing the web, or watching videos.....did I mention its modifiable? :P

just like the mac, consoles can kiss my ass.

Imagine the 3rd gen APUs.

We will be 2nd gen in the summer.

True, but we will still be running games meant for consoles at faster rates and higher graphics for the next 2 years. lol

OUYA and SteamBox, it's all up to you to save this generation.

I share your dreams!

You're not going to see anything change with control of the industry in the hands of so few corporate suits

You want to change things, gamers will have to, in greater numbers, tell them:
-We won't trust pre-release demos anymore
-We won't trust developer enthusiasm and catchphrases
-We will stop pre-ordering games because of lack of delivery
-We will stop supporting microtransactions
-We will stop paying attention to E3 and the BS demos they hype up there.
-We will show loyalty when they show us respect as paying customers instead of demanding it outright
-We will stop letting customer loyalty mean "Suckers who are willing to be nickle and dimed"

But with pretty visuals easily fooling the gaming masses yet again (no one remembers the promise of PS2 being able to have "real time toy story-like graphics"?), nothing will change and all we can hope for is another collapse with the big publishers going bankrupt one way or another.

beginning to feel that only Jim Sterling and Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw actualy speak the truth about the games industry, Cynicism is the only way to go when it come to vidoe games, to use the words of Yahtzee himself "it makes the most sense to be pessimistic, because if a game is good, Great, but if its bad you've lost nothing, plus you get the satisfaction of knowing your cleverer than fan-boys, which is right up there with winning a beauty contest against steve buscemi"

Fuck the game industry, i'm sick and tired of the same fucking safe old formulas, how games are being homogenised and how innovation is ignored. Even Tomb Raider looks like its going to play like Uncharted now, all setpieces and no exploration. Hope i'm wrong about that. But yeah, i dont really have much in the way of hope for the new generation, games like Syndicate, Dead Space 3, Resident Evil 6 , Brink etc have taken it out of me

It's stagnant? Of course it is.
Until the end of 2010, consoles were the Promised Land for Big Publishers and the Big Three alike.
Change? Given the heights they achieved financially and legally since the start of the PS3/Wii/360 generation (assuming you even count the fucking Wii but I digress) any sort of change to that only means bad news for them.

And you know what? They're absolutely right.
We'll see just how long "Same Old, Same Old" holds up; who knows? Maybe we really are the puny vocal minority here, and there's enough suckers out there who do keep buying into the same old bullshit.

But maybe the winds of change are at last upon us:
We've seen gaming controversy boil over like never before in the last year, some of it for very stupid reasons, yet some of it due to people realizing just what it is they're dealing with and what they're actually paying for.

It wasn't until this last generation that I ever grew frustrated with consoles or as much of the business as I have.

I'm actually concerned that I'm yet to see anything that PS3 truly couldn't handle. For example, PS3 couldn't handle battlefields full of dismembered bodies that were all affected by physics, limbs included. Or castles being blown up in real time. You know. Same thing with better FPS and resolution is of no interest.

I hate you people. I really really hate people who agree with this mr. Jim Sterling, because what you all seem to want is stagnation. What you people want is to stay with the PS3 forever, and ever, and ever, because you think it will change games somehow. No one should hear what you fanboys have to say, because you are only going to help kill games.
