The new Xbox One reveal, Sony and Nintendo stock climbing as a result, and Final Fantasy
VIII for the PC. Hey guys, I'm Jess, and this is the Curse Weekly Roundup!
Well, how 'bout that Xbox One? Microsoft's next console opened to...a mixed audience.
Sure, we've got the die hard Xbox fans preaching "just wait until they announce more games,
you'll all RUE the day you insulted the Xbox One!" and then we've got the larger, more
vocal group, saying "welp, I guess PS4's the way to go!"
Well, we now know MORE deets about this next-gen console - first, if you missed the announcement,
go ahead and check out our butthurt-inducing video recap which we'll link the description.
Go ahead, pause this video for a minute and go watch it. K are we all caught up? Well,
NOW we know that the Xbox One is NOT backwards compatible, AND after initial installation,
Microsoft will be charging a fee to link that same game disc to a second Xbox Live account,
meaning it's definitely limiting the market for used games. It's also going to be HDTV-compatible
only, so you can't use it with a standard def TV, and Microsoft's Azure cloud services
will allow developers to make games that can't be played offline, but the always-on thing
isn't a requirement yet.
I'm not even gonna touch any of that, I'll just leave you with this fun fact: Nintendo
and Sony's stock prices BOTH rose directly after the Xbox One announcement - Nintendo
saw an increase of about 2.2 percent that day, but Sony's stock rose by 9.3 percent.
I think we all know that's PROBABLY not a coincidence, but what do you guys think? Leave
me a comment and lemme know - is Microsoft on their way out? Did Sony just win the next-gen
console war?
Moving on from the Xbox One...Final Fantasy VIII is coming to the PC. Square Enix announced
this week that the PC version will have hi-res graphics, but no news on whether there'll
be any new features. It'll also make the Chocobo World mini-game easier to access since with
the PS2 version you needed the PocketStation, which was only sold in Japan or sometimes
at anime conventions. This news is actually garnering some mixed opinions - on the one
hand, those who never played VIII can now do so, but on the other hand, this doesn't
seem have add much in the way of replay value so it's not really bringing anything to the
table for prior Final Fantasy VIII fans. What do you think? Pick it up or skip it? Lemme
know in the comments.
Finally, flying under the radar of many, Dust 514 was released last week....on 5/14. Get
it? Well, if you're not aware, Dust 514 is an FPS that takes place in the EVE universe
- it's a PS3 exclusive that actually integrates with EVE Online - things you do in Dust can
affect EVE's world, and vice-versa. One of the coolest features of the game is how customizable
it is - choose your skills, weapons, even what kind of vehicle you wanna use to take
the enemies down. Oh, and did I mention it's free-to-play? If you wanna know more about
Dust 514, check out our full game write-up, we'll link to that in the video description.
And before I let you go, I just wanted to remind you to check out our latest IRL video
if you haven't already. This one features me and James learning moves from a pro MMA
fighter - thanks to Alienware, we got to meet Amir Sadollah and have the workout of a lifetime
learning to punch, kick, and put each other in a choke hold. And it turns out, I'm stronger
than I look - watch teh video and you'll see what I mean. A huge thankyou to Alienware
for making that happen!
And that wraps up the Roundup! Be sure to subscribe if you haven't already, and give
