  • Doom DDE already preordered. Will pick up SWTROS, CID, EWSC, EJ, LM 1&2 as well. Will wait for price drop on TTIOMROTE2, as I still haven’t started the first one.

  • Definitely looking forward to DOOM: Eternal next week!

  • Oh Kamiko finally

  • Calm down there tiger. Get some fresh airo

  • Which consoles went bankrupt after running out of exclusives? 😳

  • People still buy Xbox, so I’m pretty sure they’ll be fine

  • Blame it on covid 19 there hotshot!

  • You think the Xbox One sales are fine?

  • Ive played doom since the 90s pc versions, and this months Eternal looks awesomeヽ(*´∀`)ノ

  • Doom Eternal and of course Doom 64 for me since it’s free with the pre-order. Glad to see Kamiko finally releasing here too.

  • Please add video links to The Drop

  • Would be cool if ID released Doo. A week early since all schools are closed. Disney released frozen 2 early so the kids have something to do. Pretty cool thing they did there.

  • Sony, disable at once the checking for components inside firmware updates (PS3). I’m sure you did that to earn more money from people willing to repair consoles with you, but since you no longer offer such service, what’s the point? A PS3 can work without WiFi (LAN cable makes up for it), Bluetooth (USB cable/third-party adapters) or Blu-ray drive (digital downloads) so why do you insist on bricking PS3s with a faulty module upon updating?

  • People here saying that Xbox is fine, lmao.
    “Only on PlayStation” means nothing nowadays.

    The new execs of Sony are called Steam Hermen and PC Jim.

  • Trying to be patient and trying not to get depressed. Might repack my games into what console they belong too. My movers were horrendous and just threw things in boxes.

  • La Mulana 1&2 for sure. I’ve been waiting for that sequel forever. I can’t pass on Doom either with the rebate from the Slayers collection plus Best Buy giving you a $10 cert for it. Every week from now until June has at least one awesome game coming, my poor wallet.

  • I prefer Xbox. The people are not as toxic, controller works for me and I like their exclusives as well. I do own a PS and barely play it. Everyone I know has both consoles and only one out of ten play their PlayStation regularly. Xbox is just all around better to me and them.
    That being said there is nothing wrong with PS. They have exclusives and people like them. I think most are rehashed of other games but that’s another story.
    Sony and Microsoft will both be completely fine as will Nintendo. There are over 2 billion gamers in the world today. The top games are not even selling 20 million copies. That’s not a lot considering the number of gamers. Selling 100 million consoles is nothing to be proud of considering the number of gamers also.
    Times have changed and basically any and all consoles will be successful in today’s market.

  • Will Doom 64 be available to purchase separate? Anyone know how much it will be?

  • @DirtyD0814

    It’s okay if you and your “friends” prefer Xbox, that’s a matter of taste, no discuss about.
    But stop pretending that Xbox is fine because that’s far from true; Why do you think Microsoft was pushing so hard for cross-play? Because few people play on Xbox; There is no problem to find players on PS4 because of the huge install base, unlike Xbox;
    Also why Xbox is the only platform that locks free-to-play games behind a paywall? Because if it was the opposite, almost no one would pay for Xbox Live. Almost everyone if moving to PC and Game Pass, the Xbox Live offerings are weak and there is no reason to stay on a platform without exclusives.
    Many developers already ignore Xbox, another example is PlatinumGames with The Wonderful 101, they will not even bother with a port for Xbox, again, why do you think that?
    Steam Hermen now wants to make Playstation irrelevant too, that’s the only explanation for releasing Sony games on another platform.
    Take care.

  • only on PlayStation/XBox never meant much to begin with (also including Nintendo as far as capcom was involved). Nothing wrong with games going multiplatform more and more.

  • Kamiko’s trophy list isn’t syncing with the trophy servers! Please help! The trophy list isn’t even loading on my trophies page. Now it’s always trying to sync with the server.

  • @DirtyD0814 I’ve talked to many people and they say the opposite of your comment and I’m also in the same boat that my PS4 PRO sees more gaming than my One S. You comment that the people are not as toxic but all I here about is how toxic XBOX gamers are online because most of the are belligerent teenagers and every time you get killed they call you the n word like they’re a gangsta. I’ve have only heard on 5 occasions of playing 100s of games online of people being belligerent on the PlayStation platform. “I think most are rehashed of other games”. You mean like the big 3 exclusives on XBOX? Forza, Halo and Gears?

  • Yo gamers what’s good ,I was just thinking ,why we do not get any ,racing games for free,I mean good racing games 2016-2017,should be free,I saw some for $1.99.which is kool,but it stay ,at 1.99 for a year or so ,what’s up with that ,plus I can’t get my country flag in GT sport.
