Sony announces the official price of the PlayStation 4, Half-Life 3 confirmed as a console exclusive, and Microsoft officially announces and details the Xbox 720, THIS IS NICK’S GAMING VIEW!
Hello everyone and welcome to Nick’s Gaming View, you are here with your host, Nick McCandless. Less than two months after the announcement of Sony’s PlayStation 4, Sony has officially announced the price of the base and premium model for North America. Priced at the reasonable prices of $799 and $899, Sony considers the price point of the PlayStation 4 as “very conservative” and expects the demand to far exceed supply at the price assigned to the all-new PlayStation experience.
With PlayStation 4 launching this Holiday Season, PlayStation fans around the globe are eagerly waiting to get their hands on Sony’s upcoming console, but unfortunately the hardware will not power Valve’s ongoing project. Officially announced, Half-Life 3 will not be making an appearance on any Sony or Microsoft platform including PC, but will launch as an exclusive on Nintendo’s Wii U. When asked about this decision, Gabe Newell strongly backed the decision by emphasizing the need to utilize the innovative tablet controller with enhanced motion sensing capabilities. Gabe claims he doesn’t understand the frustration thanks to the amazing power of the Wii U giving it the ability to produce High-Definition graphics!
Wrapping up Nick’s Gaming View, Microsoft has announced the PlayStation 4’s competition, officially titled the Xbox 720, but rather than being shaped like a box or even being a console, the hardware is solely implemented within the all-new camera. Not to be called the Kinect 2.0, Microsoft’s Xbox 720 will launch with Netflix Plus, Hulu Premium, and the almighty YouTube Elite enriching the “entertainment experience”. Already seems like a winner to me, but Microsoft announced a megaton by announcing The Awakening of Milo. Bringing the child many lonely human beings across the world wished to interact with back to life, gamers around the would will now have their very own virtual kid who will satisfy one’s very needs and provide a truly “interactive experience”. Pricing has yet to be announced, but don’t expect the almighty hardware to release at the insanely cheap price point of the PlayStation 4.
