The mini-transactions would milk the shit out of the gamer market.

Paid subscriptions to Xbox Live was a way of saying a paid subscription to simply use your Xbone.

So you drop say, $500 and then pay $10 a month for the next $7 just to keep it working. That's $315 more dollars assuming they *dont* raise the monthy fee after their Xbone sales start to dwindle.

Then there is all the smaller transactions they make off of digital distribution.

Honestly, I think Sony lost more money by not playing ball and just undercutting Xbone's scheme just a little more.

Getting a console for one game is silly. You're silly.

I just picked up Project X Zone and the intro sequence is already making me grin.


See how many characters you can name,

Especially when there are comparable games available elsewhere. (Driveclub, Gran Turismo.)

I just looked up that game Ben, and fuck me if it doesn't have an absured amount of crossover characters from other games. Looks awesome.

The entire game is basically a gigantic fan wank. Totally awesome fan wank.


Start about a minute in for battle gameplay.

The animation is by Trigger, which is a group that broke off from Gainax...which explains the...Gainaxing.

I've played about 20-30 minutes or so in (been busy), and I've met the two main characters plus, characters from Street Fighter, Tekken, Virtua Fighter, and Endless Frontier.

Coooooooool, the Valkyr girl from Valkyria Chronicles. I can't remember her name, but she's awesome and her attack is awesome.

Man, I can't put this game down. For first impressions I'd give this game a "definitely buy". I'll write more about it later.

Anyone else dreading the inevitable steam summer sale?
I know many who are. It's a painful experience.
