We are closing in on the point in the PS2's life where it dropped by $100. That was pretty much Sony twisting the dagger. The PS2 had already sold more than the GameCube and Xbox ever would.
$100 right now would be too much, I can't imagine the boost. But $50 around holidays, seems about right.

Batman month? Not ideal...
3 weeks later? I think almost a month is a large enough amount of time, especially since the genres are completely unrelated.

This date works for me. I play the Telltale games with my wife and younger brother by passing the controller around and this will be during his school break, so it suits me. I am hoping around 8-10ish hours with a good amount of replay value in different paths.

One of the only true next gen console games,


Not trolling but most of the other games play just as they would have on Xbox 360 & PS3 but with better graphics.


Until Dawn , Tearaway Unfolded , Mario Maker are the games that I see as being true next gen console games.

So... reworks of a PSMOve and Vita game?

Lol I'm partially kidding but I think they will be food games that don't necessarily reinvent the wheel.

But as far as console games go they are the true next gen games that are not being played as if they are PS3 & Xbox 360 games.

Move wasn't a standard controller last gen & vita isn't a console.

Pretty excited. Game looks like real fun, and good Youtube bait.

I wonder if they can allow for interactive twitch support. that would be super fun (for twitch)
Not calling you out in particular, but this kind of statement has to be the bane of publishers and developers across the industry.

"Looks great, can't wait to watch it on YouTube! Or stream it to thousands of non-paying customers!".

But Until dawn feel like a high production value telltale game...nothing wrong with that, but not so next gen, i think.

Until Dawn seems like a good popcorn slasher-horror setup so early summer is a good fit. Look forward to playing this with a group of friends where they vote on what I ought to do.
Yup. Can't wait to play this with the girlfriend, going to be so much fun. Finally we can decide where she (the game's main character, that is) should hide and what she should do next instead of just yelling helplessly at the TV. :)

Why are people so crazy about a price cut? Why would sony cut the price if it is still the best selling console in the world?
To maintain momentum, as you can bet that there will be another price cut for the competition toward the end of year.

Personally, I definitely could see a $299 price starting in September... And that would be in line with what happened with the PS2, which worked pretty well for Sony (even if it was a long time ago).

About UD... this is so weird.
I am really looking forward to play this with the wife, when normally I wouldn't really consider that kind of title (I guess the Gamescom demo did wonders to showcase the potential). June would be a great time to release, so I hope it's an actual date and not just a placeholder.

Man I am seriously hyped about this game. Production values look great and this time of game seems like it'd be incredibly entertaining to play with some friends in the room

Haven't really seen a slasher style horror game done in this way before, seems very fresh in a world of post apocalyptic survival horror zombie games.

I believe Sony announced the most recent couple of PS3 price cuts at their gamescom press conferences which is at the end of August, so a price cut in September is not unlikely.

$299 is pretty steep of a cut though, I think we'll rather see a $349 PS4 for September and a $349 + AC Victory (if they get the marketing deal this time) or another high-profile October/November game for the holiday period.

A 349$ bundle with Battlefront would be ideal, if the rumor is true.

Somehow I've never seen footage of gameplay until now and it looks really fun. i can definitely see this being really fun with a group of friends.
It reminds me of heavy rain, but it's aware of the fact that it's straight camp. At least I hope it's aware of it. If that means tacky storylines, and cheap popup scares, I'm all for it

$349 is a bit meh for me personally, as a lot of $399 PS4 come with extras bundled already.

I think we will see a $299 PS4 by the end of the year and a bundle version with an AAA retail game for $349. MGSV? Battlefront? AC?

Anyway, back to topic, The psx demo pretty much sold me the game. I'm a sucker for a game with branching stories.

I hope that we would also get something like a new game plus after finishing the game once, in which we could play as the killer. That would be awesome.

Given the frosty reception that The Order got, it does not bode well for UD.

Shame cinematic is such a dirty word nowadays.
Different situations entirely. Everyone knows Until Dawn is a choose your own adventure style affair and they're ok with that. Folks were hoping The Order was going to be a Gears level shooter.
