Correct. E3 will be the key.
Have seen nothing that makes me want it.
Although I am happy that it will have Blu-ray.
That's absurd ...
You still have a 360 ;-)

Mandatory installs, no backwards compatibility... it just keeps getting better!
I didn't see this..did i fall asleep at the point they mentioned it? lol
They didn't mention it at the event, and I actually haven't seen that posted anywhere. Haven't been looking though.
Well, see you Microsoft and hello Sony.
Uhm, am I misreading this? They clearly ask the question in the article and state "This is something gamers want to know" with no answer.
Granted, I just started skimming, but a ctrl+f for "used" just got me that line and a lot of whining in the comments. :)
Do those pre-owned fees go to the game developers? If so, then I think it's great. If MS keeps the fees then they're no better than second hand game retailers
BTW, good to see you back, rayner!
Here is a discussion on it, http://neogaf.com/showthread.php?t=560478
I haven't seen anything yet or read anything yet, (other than the comments I'm reading on here).. and yeah.. I can tell this is not good. lol
btw good to see you back rayner :)
Calm down about those used game fees: http://aol.it/10MFBzv
Ah, but is that digital selling of games? If so, I still can't do it with my brother because he doesn't have internet. Also, what about shared consoles?
Holy crap! What the hell is this shit! http://kotaku.com/you-will-be-able-to-trade-xbox-one-games-online-micros-509140825
So the activation fee for a new game will be just like buying a new game... but there will be a way to sell your games online? Gamestop is doomed...
at least the N64 was good, this is looking so bad. Everything but the games! *First 20 minutes.
Notice how xbox likes to stay at nuber one, First the 360 which would keep you at the starting point, now xbox one. Infinity makes the most sense. Infinte Possiblities!

I hope every game ends with the number 1 just to mess with weird people like 64 did..
Halo One!!! I predict PS4 leads the next generation due to lack of brand confusion!
Halo the Live Action Television series! ugh.
Developer will be like... "Announcing Gears of Wars ONE! Oh wait, we already made that".
Get ready for third parties to do this too. Assassin's Creed One, The Elder Scrolls One, Final Fantasy One.......oh my god gen 8 is going to suck!
Technically all of you are wrong, none of those games were ever called One when they were made...I used to always have this argument with my bro about Sonic and MK
Looks like they've forgotten!
Ordinary to be honest. Want a nice light relatively easy game to play and JSG fits the bill. See what happens I guess.

yeah will probably have to just end up waiting until the new contract. oh well back to the grinds..
It's glitchy and boring, you're not missing much. I have to still replay the whole game since the game crashed and wouldnt ever start again without reinstall.
Oh wow, that's ordinary. Thanks for the heads up K4rn4ge
i never had any issues with it what so ever...
I didn't have any issues but it did get boring quick.
Parking Mania showed up a few days late too, although Spy Mouse was right on time. All we can do is sit and wait! :)
Now that the game actually works - hooray - I feel much better about joining teams without having things crash all the time!!
I have sent you an invite, but now my team is full. I can make room tomorrow.
hankyou. I saw you online last night and was almost going to shoot you an invite myself! Its an enjoyable game no that it is working.
Finally it works! Huzzah!
Damn it, didn't know game ended when this happened, will have to get another game going to get the last achievement. Hopefully
Still haven't figured out the grid strategy yet.

oh yeah...same thing happened to me
I don't quite know how I did it ... I got two pearls, and then got a third and got lucky for it to "fall" near the other two. Just carefully worked it around.
Ive assumed not so well since reading the last blog, but how are things going?
Good to see you back :)

Sorry I've been gone so long, this was the most difficult class I've ever taken. TA looks different
I finished dark souls and dungeon siege and no rayner was to be found..
Oh snap! Congrats! How did you like Dark Souls? Did you play the Prepare to Die DLC?
Managed to play only offline.
Same here - really disappointing to be honest.
I managed to get in this morning. You just need to be lucky at the moment
Mine crashes a few mins after starting... sad state of game development these days.
Awesome - Downloading now!
I'm going to have to wait till I get home regrettably. Is it available in Oz or is it a Trinidad and Tobago special?
It is available if you search for it. Unfortunately it keeps crashing while trying to connect
That ain't so good to hear.
Woo hoo, finished the game, woo hoo .. oh, hold on, wait, the other achievement won't unlock till around June 5 ....
Forgot to reset the date back? That sucks.
And that's why I never played with the date/time on this one lol...
Now I'm questioning if I got a few random achievements in Gold Rush with that...
Got on a roll with a game of survival and forgot to switch the date back after doing some K4rn4ge-inspired date change coin boosting!!
Got the survival achievement - but it'll pop around June 5 I think. That'll be nice.
Any tips for the orbs on the transylvaniac levels?
Throw the balls about 2 seconds before the ghosts change at a reasonably slow speed.
Ohh and try to leave it as late as possible before firing to maximise the combo.
Did you use fire waves?
only when the screen was full. Only could afford one per stage
Terre's spot on - slow orbs bouncing side to side off walls clear most of the ghosts. A couple of levels I splashed out and used 2 fire waves to maximise points
If you wait until the ghosts/enemies are "in the frame" next to or between the moving wood at side of screen, you can get a couple of orb rebounds.
Did you try backup and recover profile? I cant do it.
And how much have you spent????
160 msp on the double coin buff, which I got free due to a glitch, so respent 160msp on 30k or 40k coins.

And here you were a couple of days ago complaining about aye? lol.... Will finish the grind tomorrow at work for me :D
How was the glitch happen?
Oh, the difficulty spike is still there and pretty blatant El-A ... it'd put off a few people I reckon. But after getting the glitch I thought I'd ride my luck!
Don't know how the glitch happened AP E JC - I went to buy the 2xcoins, added msp to my account, but purchase stalled. I quit out, returned to the game and had the buff.
There's a marketplace issue out there where it'll process your purchase but not take anything. Same with it processing the purchase and taking but not unlocking. :( Rare
Unfortunately for me, when my purchases have timed out, I've had the only the second happen 3-4 times.
Now for some coin grinding...
I haven't played since yesterday =[
I can hardly ever connect to the leaderboards, so I have no idea what my score is! So annoying. :)
Restarting my phone sorted it... not sure how the leaderboards work, though! Replaying levels seems to have no effect?
Oh, I see... it is just all of your best level scores added together. You gave me false hope there, Chris! :D
That wasn't so bad, actually! Fire waves really help to max out the scores. Now Survival mode for the remaining gold...
Are these achievements difficult or time consuming?
They are challenging. Made easier as you boost your abilities in game. The gold rush date and time trick helps earn you money
Yeah with the gold you earn in game, I've finished all worlds, got all the cheevos and am yet to spend a cent, haven't even got double gold buff either, so it is doable..
Just have to grind out the others now, but I'm in no rush...
Reassuring that it is doable. But hmmm, I guess they have to get their money for a free game somewhere!
Just use the date and time trick and keep doing Gold Rush mode :)
Definitely K4rn4ge - that's high on my "workaround" list. I do like Gold Rush too - more relaxing than some of the levels.
Change date to June 5, 2013 and keep changing it back to that - its one of the most productive gold rush setups! Once got 11,000 gold (using 2x gold perk of course)
Survival mode can be quite good for gold as well. Is one hell of a grind, though. :(
I was getting 10-13 thousands per game in survival mode, and it took me 60 games to buy all upgrades.
Gold Rush June 5th (or any other day that week) seems to be faster / easier for coins though than survival mode. Just my opinion :)
Is it just me or are the leaderboards slow to update or not updating?
New game, first achievement ... "Sociopath". Top stuff.
Did you spend any points?
Not yet, though I am going to purchase the 2x gold boost for 160 msp.
I wish Woo Hoo was also free ! See what I did there ;)
That's worth another Woo Hoo!
nice, me too! bout time as well my wp7 has seen better days...
Yes, mine as well. Just waiting for the contract to finish up. But the WP7 has served me well. Love the interface - been a great phone.

You keeping the wp7 for boosting etc?
I can already get mine. I'm just waiting for my carrier (Verizon) to finally release the 928.
I am going to keep the wp7 ... good for me, and my kids can play games on it as well.
Yep, keeping the WP7
Finally. Got a game done without AI cheating
Hahah...yeah, it does that. Think it took me 4 or 5 attempts on the last one. I had a Full House beat with a 4-of-a-kind on one attempt.
I mean, I like the game, but the statistical improbabilities of some of these hands I'm copping are huge.
One time, I actually saw the AI get a royal flush
Awesome Chris =]
Thanks everyone. Been a bit slow going over the past couple of weeks. Playing things without getting achievements at the moment!
Stuck in the same boat. 30 hours to grind 1 achievement in 2 different games. It'll be worth it in the end, though.
Yep that sounds familiar. Grinding a few things right now - some small, some I've been meaning to do for a while. Good luck mate.
Finally finishing Crimson Dragon and pushing on with KenKen. Angry Birds just got delisted though, which means I have yet another grind ahead of me with that.
