I get a kick out of all these articles complaining about how many Ps4 and Xbone games are also on the older systems.

Wasn't there a big article at E3 complaining that Ps3 and 360 were being pushed aside in favor of new systems, and that there were too many games that were new gen only at the show?

So its either/or....and folks will complain either way. Make up your minds.

Reading recent Digital Foundry articles, there seems to be a trend emerging where X1 games actually have a better frame rate than PS4 versions of the same game. It seems that X1, now that Kinect is gone, the CPU is slightly better than the PS4 and is giving it an advantage. Meanwhile the memory and GPU of PS4 gives it a resolution/picture quality advantage but actually running at a slightly worse frame rate. Interesting.

I don't remember an article about past gen being pushed aside but there was so much stuff at E3 it would be difficult to remember. I do remember that this gen has sold much faster than anticipated so PS3/360 versions are being canned faster now I think. Guillemot said something like that.

I think it's a double edged sword all these cross gen games. For those of you who have new systems, it doesn't matter to you, you buy the better version of the game on your new system and to you it's fine. You have new games to play on your new system and it doesn't matter if it's on old gen or not. For procrastinating sourpusses like me, yet to buy into the new generation (Wii U doesn't count of course) it gives me the nagging feeling that the new gen isn't quite worth it yet as I can play the majority of the games on a system I already own. Of course it doesn't help watching comparison videos where the only difference seems be a few effects and resolution boost which I don't really care that much about. Fundamentally they're the same games, visual bells and whistles aside.

Personally speaking the only games I would get right now if I had a PS4 would be last gen games like The Last of Us and GTA V. Maybe FC4, but I didn't get FC3 so who knows. I want to play the Uncharted trilogy on PS4. A lot of other multiplat releases are white noise to me, they're there, but I don't really care if I play them or not, or care when I play them, now or a few years away.

I'm bored so more pics

This was in Hong Kong, a bakery with a giant Banyan tree growing out the side.

In Kowloon park, imagine it as like a parade of high quality anime statues. We ended up there accidentely and it was swarming with enthusiastic kids.

China is a souvenir  hunters paradise, bring a spare suitcase and lots of cash

Yangshao is nice, a nice contrast with traditional or smaller buildings against close up limestone karsts.

This is a famous formation in Guilin, the Chinese seem to think you can see a white horse at the top and slightly to the right, just under it is a black horse.

There were some rather strange Police.... boxes I saw.

What do you need on the Bangkok MTR subway? A massive HD cinema screen of course...

The architecture of the Grand Palace in Bangkok is very very cool.

This is Jim Thompsons house near the centre of Bangkok, you weren't allowed to snap pics inside so I nabbed a few from the net. He was an American who saved the silk industry who mysteriously vanished in Malaysia.

To get some perspective of where the giant buddha is, check out this aerial photo I nabbed from the net

I found this daytime pic of the peak in HK since I was there at night. Might make it into a poster.

Is it me or are cross-gen games a new thing?  The only cross-gen game that comes to mind from earlier generations is Zelda:TP.  The only reason why they're around now is because publishers didn't feel comfortable with dedicating all of their resources to PS4/Xbone.  This could stem from the fact that the generational leap isn't as clear as it was before, diminnishing returns, that kind of thing.  Personally I think cross-gen games are a bad thing, as they fracture the market.  People shouldn't complain. Either you buy in to the next gen early on, or you hold out and comb through the last-gen backlog.

Yes indeed.

I remember clearly an article whining about a lack of PS3 and 360 support at E3 in favor of the new consoles. It blows my mind because those systems have lasted longer than any previous era by far....I mean you literally have a backlog going back to 2005 to inspect. So is it really a big issue that actual new consoles are pushing them out of the picture almost 10 years later?

Me and my bro watched that movie incessantly growing up. The best bit is when Jack is in the car park and his hat gets blown off, his hair puffs up and he says "Son of a bitch must pay." Jack Burton, one of the best characters evar.

I just watched Big Trouble last week.   Good movie.

There is nothing bad about big trouble, how dare you?! It's a masterpiece. Nyaa

Good, bad movies happen to be one of my favorite genres.  I liked the movie a lot, turned me on to a Kurt Russell AND China.  SO MANY one-liners, too.  I won't be able to see China soon, but I'm thinking a trip to China town in San Francisco is in order.
