    NOV. 22! and the PS4 comes out the 15th or 16th. Then the Next-Gen will be full swing. as in, all the companies will have their consoles out and now we can see what will really happen. 3DS, Wii U, Vita, PS4, now One and all the other ‘indie’ machines like Ouya, Gamestick, and Nvidia Shield. PS4 and Xbox One both have great games coming out for them, the line up looks bleek. actually, by launch, all three major home consoles do not, will not, have a single solitary game on store shelves that i’m interested in. I’ll stick with my 3DS and wait to see where Final Fantasy XV and Monolithsoft’s ‘X’ land.

      You should check out FFXIV A Realm Reborn! It is fantastic so far. The battle system is similar to Xenoblade and the world has much to explore. Easily one of the best games as of recent times. Sqaure has been making some poo poo moves, but FFXIV… they are doing something right. I can honestly say, I am content with XIV ARR.

      Also, the main antagonist kinda looks like Grahf from Xenogears… kinda fishy.

    “Will you be purchasing a Day One Edition?” Are you out of your mind? I’ll never buy a PRISM-enabled console.

      I am not getting a Day One Edition either. Microsoft put me off with their initial plans and even now I never know what policies they are going to change from day to day. I wont say that I will never have one but I wont have one any time soon for sure. I’ll wait and see what they do once the system has been out for a while.

      Totally agree with you, I mean if they changed it once they could/might change it again. I can’t trust Microsoft anymore. I’ll be sticking with the past Gen. for some time until I get one of these Next Gen. consoles.
