Smartglass interaction is ace. Had a message come in whilst on DR3 using the companion app on the iPhone, so paused the game then used the iPad to reply to the message. No interruption or flicking screens, just a nice flowing experience.

DR3 really is very good, y'know.

I'm loving the PlayStation App for the same reason. A second screen is a very useful thing.

I forgot that the Kinect uses it's own mic when playing online against others unless you tell it not to :oops:

Yeah, happens in FIFA14 too. It's a great idea, and you can always turn it off if you like.

I boughted (well, belated birthday pressie) BF4 today. As much as I usually detest FPS war games, this is actually quite good.

The SP seems alright so far, nothing to really complain about and the set pieces are great, but even the MP is damn good fun. 64 player CTF-style stuff was a hoot, even if I'm bloody awful at it.

BF4 sucks balls. It feels wrong online and is filled with dozens of bugs. It's the only game to force quit on my PS4. DICE suck at coding and always have.

CoD is still the master of the genre.

It's much better than any CoD of recent times.

Nope, I've played them all and Ghosts blows it's cock off. The all ghillied up mission from MW is still the pinnacle of FPS SP. All of the BF Bad Companys blow BF4's cock off.

Ghillied up was ace, deffo. I always found the MP side of CoD to be well below my tastes as well as full of twats, which is why I stopped buying CoD since they started focusing 85% on that side. BF seems more relaxed, more team orientated than the run and gun of CoD.

Strokes/folks and all that.

I'm surprised people went for the Xbone after the fiasco that was the xbox 360, and everyone including their granny got red rings.
