It wasn't impossible, I could tell how hard.....on a controller that wasn't too old. I was able to use the feature in a couple of games. Didn't work so well in Gran Turismo though. I can also bullseye womp-rats.
Besides, do you think Sony will ever allow PC/PS4 gamers to play together?
It's a developer decision, not SCEfoo's. It has been done in the past and present:
FFXI on the PS2 had cross-platform play PC, PS2 and later the Xbox.
PS3 Dust514 players can communicate with Eve Online players.
PS3 Portal 2 players can also play with PC players.
Final Fantasy XIV players play cross platform across ALL platforms, PS3, PS4, and PC.
There is this thing called HDMI audio, use it, love it.
There is this thing called HDMI audio, let the video card handle it.
I would like to see a competitive player get a logitech marble mouse and a nostromo speedpad and see what they can get.
Ooooh yes! With the cross-pad used for movement? That would be very similar to the setup I use on the console, with games that support it. DualShock left hand: movement. Mouse: right hand. Though now you can replace the full dual shock with a Move Navigation controller (which can be used without the wand controller and camera)
I know! I blame the Microsoft catering to the dudebro gamer demographic with the original Xbox. And then publishers seeing that it was easier to market a shooter to dudebros than figuring out how to market other games to a more diverse market.
I think the last non-shooter commercial I saw was for Diablo 3 for the PS3! Every Xbox 360/Xbox one commercial seems to be for a shooter.
Playing FPS games with a joystick isn't fun.
Depends on which FPS, which controller, and what you're doing with that stick. I like moving with the stick, but given my druthers, I'd prefer the option of stick movement but mouse aiming. Some console FPS's let you do that, which works very very well.
Plus, $60 for a online-only shooter? That's beyond pathetic.
Well the developers and publishers found out that most online-shooter players were ignoring the single-player modes and playing multi-only so they decided to just omit the parts most didn't play.
Not that I agree with that, but you have to admit it's a logical decision for them to make with limited budgets and developer manpower.
It isn't when it gets as ridiculous as it's been getting with that PC Master Race shit. That shit, which I was satirizing, can go the way of the Dodo.
I'm primarily a console gamer, but I've played a PC game or two that doesn't have a console port, now and then. So I'm getting a bit tired of it, especially since I've been around long enough to remember when the SSI gamers were bashing the DOOM guys as idiot "frat-boy gamers come lately" and not "real gamers"
There are these things on the Dual Shock called Analog Sticks, perhaps you should be using them. And if the game is one of those fighting games stuck in 1993 paradigms because the Fighting Game Fanboys insist on it (Street Fighter), perhaps you should play a modern fighting game that uses proper controls.
Or if you must, plug in an arcade stick.
I'm already putting together a Steam Box that's going to end up costing about 4 times what a next-gen console goes for.
But why? If you can get a near equivalent experience for 1/4 the price, why waste money on hardware when you can get more games. Then again... that Steam box actually won't have many games.
And don't tell me that games looking "slightly better" is worth a 4X price premium.
I want the next map to load as fast as possible so the others won't start the next round without me
If your multiplayer compatriots are that impatient that they can't wait a few seconds at most, perhaps you should find new ones.
But that's Filthy PC Gamer Philistines for you.
Filthy PC Gamer Bourgeosie! Instead of wasting money on an SSD, you should have got that HDD. For the large price premium you pay for SSD, I'd take disk space over speed any day of the week and twice on Sundays.
But that's Filthy PC Gamers for you, wasting money on hardware they could spend on games, and using craptastic Windows.
Only Filthy PC Gamer Bourgeoisie think the only games that exist are first-person-shooters. But of course they are Filthy Cheap PC Gamers who buy Counter Strike a decade ago and play on de_dust over and over for 10 years and think that makes them the experts in what gaming is, or should be.
Filthy PC Gamer Philistines!
Filthy PC Gamer Bourgeoisie can't seem to get over their elitism, focusing on the tech and stupidly obsessing over numbers, rather than the fun.
PC Gamer Bourgeoisie Philistine! REAL electronic gaming is done in the living room, only Dirty PC Gamer Fools play at desks. Desks are for work!
