This thread is simple. Are you eating ____?

If so, explain why.

Yes, it tastes delicious. I've eaten like 5. All for the same thing. Gaikai PS3 streaming. It's crazy they are doing it. Didn't think they'd invest that many millions in it, but we'll see how it goes.

Except they haven't gotten Gaikai PS3 streaming working?

I'll eat crow on the RAM. Shit is bananas. And I thought AC4 would be at the press conference, not Watch_dogs.

Edit: shit, also Destiny crow.

Eating the series Destiny crow. Had no idea they intended to show, but I was impressed with what we saw.

Also, the Vita streaming just makes me so happy.

Where are the people that said Sony won't show games at the conference and only tech demos?

What about those who thought they would mention a Vita pricedrop for NA?

hahahaha.

I'm eating my hat. The visual jump is a lot greater than I thought it would be. Still have yet to see enticing gameplay though.

I did not believe they would put 8GB of GDDR5 in on heat and cost grounds. I don't know enough about the buses and shit to claim it for any other reason.

Anyway, it's not eating crow in that regard, it's eating Parrot ;)

I'm honestly amazed I'm not eating crow at all. I was never certain/adamant on the RAM, so I guess I'm getting by on a technicality.

....I guess I'll eat crow for hoping Persona 5 and Kaz would be there?

Nothing surprised me, literally nothing, other than them not showing the console, which I would have bet teeth on.

the people who insisted the ps4 wouldnt be called the ps4 because of 'shi' look pretty silly though.

Were people making definitive statements about something they have no real info on? Oh wait I'm on the Internet.

Yeah, it's not up yet. They said they're investing in it, not for the tech, but for the "millions of Playstation fans."

Seriously... I thought they would just implement that "PE" into the crossbar... since it was designed to literally be put into the system. I'm upset it won't run native PS3 BC... but... meh... better than nothing.

I argued pretty damn hard the maximum amount of ram in the next gen consoles would be 4GB and even then I was thinking DDR3. Glad to have been proven wrong.

It will be a technological miracle if they can get it working.

I'm eating crow thanks to KZ4's visuals. Honestly after seeing what I saw I can't praise Crysis 3 or Metro Last Light like I was.

Nope. Sony delivered more than I could ever ask for such an early reveal. Did not expect anywhere near that many games or tech demos to be shown. Love the sound of the hardware and the features, and their obvious strong focus on games make me more than happy.

im technically eating crow cause I was sure they were going for 720p again but there's no way they'll do that with those GPU specs, unless they're retarded.

They're still most definetly gonna go with 30fps, though.
Most of the games looked really smooth though. Although some like Watch Dogs were running on PC.

Those direct feed shots of KZ look outstanding though and the game isn't even finished.

I wasn't silly enough to make any bold claims, but I think everyone going on about how 8GB wasn't going to happen is really what made it such a surprise.

I remember you made a comment on twitter about Crysis 3 being next-gen already or something, what's your opinion on what the PS4 is doing with things like Killzone 3 comparatively?

I wonder if it was designed with 4GB of GDDR5 in mind seeing as every rumour until a couple days ago had that amount in the dev kits.

I'm eating crow on Destiny. I was mad underwhelmed by the first glimpse and had kinda written it off.

I think Crysis 3 is more visually sophisticated on PC. Check out the Killzone facebook page, then check out Crysis 3 footage on PC on youtube. But Killzone looks pretty fucking good. I look forward to seeing it at an event without the shitty video compression.

Hold on, let me get you some secret sauce to slather on it.
How about you find any example of me saying "secret sauce," ever. I will paypal you ten dollars if you do.

Really?

Onlive worked pretty decently, I understand this requires a bit more work but its possible.


Also making statements about whats possible / impossible etc is a bit silly with the amount of crow being served on a lot of "experts" tonight.
