"All those prices are disgusting.
£32.99 for bloody Angry Birds? I can pick up that game now for free on Android. And I can play it whilst taking a crap." - Squall5005
You don't have a PS4 and 40" TV in your bathroom? You poor poverty-ridden soul.
"Ya see when you cut out the middleman (retailer) there are massive costs you can cut out by supplying direct to the customer which in turn makes buying digital a lot lot cheaper.... oh wait." - adison
Yup, you didn't think that one through.
"Steam console - can't play all steam games
Genius concept." - shogunreaper
You're getting Steam in a console and you want to be able to play GAMES too? You'll be wanting a controller next.
""It said that non-gaming content is prohibited, but discussing games without playing them is accepted."
does that mean someone can interfere with themselves but won't be banned if they do it while talking about Killzone Shadow Fall?" - DavidG
I hope so, otherwise I've just chucked away 350 quid.
"You can't beat a bit of Bully!" - JSayonara
We were worried there wouldn't be a Bullseye reference in this story. Thanks for sorting it for us.

MOANERS OF THE WEEK
"Yet again Sony treating the Europeans like 2nd class citizens, update 1 day before release (Americans get 1 week to get update onto USB) so this will deffo crash the servers, the phone app delayed and finally the UK pricing of digital games on the PSN takes the p**s." - selfy
Oh my god you got a free update just one day before release?
"MS, you are sooooo stupid.
Any HALO launch title would have been massive for the Xbone. Even holding HALO4 and 'new-genning' would have meant massive sales.
The "bad decision" dept at Redmond is working overdrive again." - apalmer28
The console has sold out.
Wadda loada Shyte!" - Paul Skinback

PUNS OF THE WEEK
"Ridiculous pricing! Were the cost lower, I'd Louvre to get this." - Balladeer
"Grand Theft Artoo" - badgerpog
"I actually rushed to ASDA to buy this game at midnight and ended up smashing my car into a bollard because I was so tired. I wish I was more A.WAKE....
Anyone? No? Is this thing on?" - NEO_SUPERMAN
FINALLY, ON A POSITIVE NOTE...
"Regardless of your brand persuasion this, combined with a strong PS4 launch in the US, is great news for the industry. The market is so different now with increased competition outside of console games, a resurgent PC gaming market, the advent of tablets and smartphones (particularly F2P and low cost games), social media and on-demand TV. All of these things have come along since the beginning of the last generation.
And so to have such a strong start shows that there's still great demand for consoles. Perhaps it's a sign that both parties have adapted and tailored their products to modern demands. Perhaps it's a symptom of such a long wait. But regardless of the reason, we saw that the external threat is very real when it came to 3DS and Vita launches.
Still a long way to go in terms of whether that secondary, more casual market is there, but I expect much sighs of relief from those who've invested so much in hardware development.
Congratulations to PS4 and Xbox One - and I hope that everyone who got one is enjoying that glowing new console feeling." - vladimirimp
