Little bit of odd news concerning the PS4 launch date for Japan. They won't be getting the system until Feb 22, 2014. That's quite a wait for their home turf.

Edit: Huh, looks like I might actually get a Vita then. PS Vita TV Announced at About $99

Well, looks like I . . . *SIGHS*. . . caved and bought an Xbone.

I only did this after learning that I'd have to wait until 2014 for a PS4.

I am not a proud man. It only rook the salesman ten minutes to have me trading in my old xbox. Still, got $250 trade in on that plus peripherals. So woo.

Now excuse me while I renew my xbox live and cry in the shower.

DualShock 4′s Analog Sticks & Buttons Will Work Just Fine With PCs for Basic Functions

This is good news for me, considering I think my 360 controller is maybe on it's way out.

Jesus high-faluting Christ, Polygon's review of the PS4 (yes you read that right) is so grandiose and ostentatious, the Animations section in MS Powerpoint is looking at it and saying "Gee, that's a bit much."

I entered the Konami Code and got three extra lives. Not sure what those do, but now to read the review!

That's one impressive article.

I got one (Because I'm a shallow bugger, and wanted one now instead of waiting for a 2014 PS4) And it's not a bad console at all, so far. Obviously the majority of the jousting between the ps4 and the xbone is going to be apps and functionality, rather than game exclusives and online, seeing as they're mostly similar in those regards.

Honestly, I do hope that the PS4 majorly outsells the xbone at launch. Microsoft could use the little extra salt in the wounds as an object lesson, and to make sure they remember what happened, hopefully they remember to be consumer focused because of it.

Between the PS4 and the X-Boner, I would really prefer that the Wii-U make some improvements.

Is it just me, or is the Wii U this generation's Dreamcast?

That wasn't a shot at the Dreamcast, but you can't deny that it was stuck between generations.

I think the problem is, it was a tad too gimicky with the controller cartridges and all. If Sega had put as much into advertising and publicity as Nintendo, the Dreamcast would've likely been a force to be reckoned with. Supposedly, after the Dreamcast flubbed in the west, it continued to soar in Japan. Though I can't say I'm shocked at that idea.
