The end of physical media for game consoles

it is long overdue, and what should have happened when the PS4 and Xbox one came out. No more cds. We saw the end of the video stores which was largely due to the streaming capabilities and speeds which allow instant playback to rent or buy digital media.

just look what apple did tot he music industry with iTunes. the muscle that prevented the last game systems to eliminate the media drive looked to be Gamestop, sure they are the largest distributor of game titles but just look at the app store or google play. there is really no need for media anymore on this platform. Intact, one of the biggest reasons was so gamers can play most of their games from the prior system. that did not work, since most of them came out without the backward ability. However, the strongest point gamers made was wanting to be able to share games or sell them or trade.

Well, technology allows for many options now and one of them is being able to loan a digital game you own (well, do we really own any digital media, thats another topic) to a friend in your friends list. You will get a request from a friend who can see your library, at that point they can send a loan request to you. If you agree, the game becomes checked out to that person and unplayable to you fro the time it is on loan.

The same goes form movies. your library will show what titles are loaned out and to which friends. you can also put a scheduled amount of time on the checkout. Here is another option that would be awesome, say you want to sell it? we should be able to set a price and offer it out for sale or better yet trade. We could swap digital titles with our friends. I can tell you that our friends list would be building up since the more friends the more media available to trade..

I am hopeful with the next generation of Playstation and Xbox they loose the media. Publishers will save so much without having to produce packaging and will have the ability to possibly sell the title directly. Hefty royalties will go to Microsoft or Sony but in the long run there will be a big savings.

We are seeing the end of Gamestop and big box stores for sure. GameStop has been trying to venture into other areas to help sales. With the purchase of think geek they hope to bring in more sales besides the games. all we will be purchasing is the platform/console from retail. accessories are a big part of the business too. But not enough to sustain a retail chain and the overhead associated with these stores.

I watched the software industry go to digital downloads. there was a time when the CD-Rom drive ruled the world of computer gaming.  No more media. we will be digital only.

this is just part of my rant and vision that i see for our gaming future. Also with VR coming out now this will just be another reason to stream.

The Nur also comes with the customizable Afterglow wireless transmitter and charging dock, which uses conductive charging to charge the headset through two prongs located between the split cushions. this version also offers a hassle free plug and play solution so players no longer need to stop gaming to charge their headset.

PS4 Star Wars Battlefront Bundle

Ok here is my low-down on this long awaited game / bundle. I have been waiting to get a new playstation 4 and wanted to try and save a few bucks. Sony has been offering two versions of the Star Wars Battlefront bundles.

PS4 Bundle 1

bundle1

 

 

 

 

 

PlayStation 4 500GB Console – Star Wars Battlefront Bundle (Click to see)

So for this bundle you get battlefront standard edition not deluxe. ALSO it is the DIGITAL edition. You do not get the physical CD. for some people this might not be that big of a deal, If you are like me and you might want to trade this in down the line. Also the digital edition will take up some space on your brand spankin’ new 500 Gig hard drive. It also will come with the one controller and the voucher for the other Star Wars games to download. The console is jet black with no artwork on the system or controller.

Pricing – This bundle is trending from $349.95 at this time of my post.

PS4 Bundle 2

bundle2

 

 

 

 

 

 

PlayStation 4 500GB Console – Star Wars Battlefront Limited Edition Bundle (click to see)

Now the this bundle comes with the Darth Vader artwork on the PS4 system, and the custom colors. You will also get the deluxe edition of Battlefront. This is not a download it is the full version CD edition. Also included is the voucher to download the four other games.

Pricing – The Vader bundle is trending at $399.95 at the time of my post.

My take on these Bundles…

Since I am in the market to purchase and it happens to be a week away from Black Friday/Cyber Monday 2015 I have been researching what will be offered. Playstation will be offering the Uncharted – The Nathan Drake collection PS4 bundle for $299.95
PlayStation 4 500GB Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Bundle (Digital Download Code)

I am also seeing that they will be offering some discounts on the Star Wars Battlefront Deluxe edition. Some deals are the game for $49.95 or $59.95 and you can get a 3 month online pass for $10.00. These offerings are from Wal-Mart, Target, and Bestbuy. I am also in need of another controller. Black Friday 2015 deals show Playstation 4 controllers @ $35.00 which is a phenomenal price.

I could just get the Vader bundle but really do not want to pay the extra money for the artwork and controller…Just saying…

Do your own research and find the best deal you can. There are many discounts going on, you just have to look. I have posted many Amazon links here. They have some of the best prices listed. Plus you get a no hassle return policy and know Amazon will back you up if there is an issue. I always look for products that are shipped and fulfilled by Amazon. This means Amazon has the product in their warehouse and take full responsibility for the order.

Check out these good deals I found while doing my system search.

Two Wheel Scooter Hottest gift 2015

scoot

Check out these  links on  Amazon to see what they are currently selling for. These two wheel walking scooters sure look like fun.
 

Exploitation of the headsets

The reason for this post is to look at the headset industry and what they are bringing to market and the prices that are being charged.

I think we have Beats by Dre to thank for this. take a set of headphones that cost about $5-$8 bucks to create and get a big name celebrity or music mogul to represent the product, oh and you have to put an inflated price tag on these to recoup the costs of retaining the celebrity endorsement, slick packaging, and R&D.

I do not want to slam Beats, but the overall quality is really not that good. And to justify the high costs is not based on the making of the product but for the bloated execs that need to get the margins back. With the success of Beats by Dre we have seen so many companies start making similar headsets and tons and tons of counterfeit product. The Beats by Dre line has garnished more fakes then any other item.  I have wrote several articles on these counterfeits and how almost everyone sold on eBay was fake.

But as gamers we have seen many more variations of overpriced cans that either look cool and sound like crap or sound good and are as uncomfortable as hell.

PDP Afterglow

I am happy to say when testing out the PDP afterglow line I was so happy and excited that something bridged the gap between high tech gamer looks and quality audio. When people see the afterglow they love the lighted see through looks but to put them on and get the full spectrum of the quality speakers PDP uses and the very comfortable cushions allow for many hours of enjoyable game play with high quality audio.

The pricing on the Afterglow line is high but not that high compared to some of the other companies making their headsets in the vein of the Monster Beats line.

I do like the Siberia Headsets and some of the Turtle Beach units on the market. If you are looking to get a nice set realize it is an investment and you can test many of the models out today. Most of the big box stores have a demo display that allow you to try before you buy.

Here are some of my top headsets.
