I would say probably not from the videos I've seen.

nice, I'll be getting Rayman Legends for 19.99 and possibly Lego Marvel 19.99. Is there anyway to sort that list by console?

Much like the PS4, the XB1 is having hardware issues at launch...

If you arent someone who wants it at launch for the sake of having it, id wait till there is a game you want that isnt on 360.

I'm aware. I was just saying much like the PS4 Launch(that you posted a link on yourself about consoles failing), XB1 is having similar issues.

It's not surprising for either console... but it's not like they both haven't had their issues so far.

You like to seem to counter me blow for blow about Xb1 vs Ps4. The funny thing about Ps4 is it was suspose to be 1000x better then the Xb1. I would also wager that Xb1's issues are a lot of trolls cause of the Ps4 thing.

I think fanboy's for either system are stupid.

I'll probably pick up a PS4 first, but I have no doubt I will own an Xbox1 at some point. I had a 360 long before I had a PS3, and had an Xbox over a PS2 during that generation.

I do think Microsoft went about marketing the XB1 all wrong, and that will cost them early on. It will come down to the games though when all said is done, and it's probably gonna be a year or two before we get games on either system that are really using its full specs. The only reason I'm a sony lean at this point is because I like their exclusives better.. IE Uncharted, God of War etc.

I am pretty sure they had to do the same thing during the 360 launch.

I'm on the Hyrule Castle (last board) on Twighlight Princess. I have everything I can get. I got all 60 poes, got every heart container, all the bugs, all the weapons, caught every fish I could, got the frog lure playing that stupid game, largest wallet, quiver, bomb bags, etc.

I've got the map and compass and cleared the first two floors of every treasure chest. Then my daughter woke up so I quit.

Hopefully I can wrap the game up tonight. My goal was to finish it by Thanksgiving. Should get it done.

got the power bracelets in WW and for some reason I went to find a triforce piece under the giant rock on outset island before the 2 temples. I went through the 30 stages of falling in holes to get to the last room with the elephant only to be stuck there. Apparently I'm not allowed to get triforce pieces until I go through the 2 temples? I then realized I didn't save it so I have to do everything over again with the bracelet....

Lego: The Hobbit will be out in Spring 2014:

Following the emergence of artwork for the game leaking last week, Warner Bros. has officially announced Lego: The Hobbit for release in spring 2014.

The game will be coming to Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Vita, Wii U, 3DS, PC, and Mac.

The game will be set around the first two films of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy, An Unexpected Journey and Desolation of Smaug. Playable characters include Bilbo Baggins and Gandalf the Grey, alongside all of the dwarves: Thorin, Fíli, Kíli, Óin, Glóin, Dwalin, Balin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori, and Ori. Warner Bros. adds that each dwarf will have his own unique ability, mentioning that Bombur can use his belly as a trampoline.

Locations visited will include Bag End, Hobbiton, The Misty Mountains, Goblin-town, Mirkwood, and Rivendell.

Players "will also be able to mine for gems, discover loot from enemies, and craft powerful magical items or build immense new LEGO structures," according to the game's press release, suggesting that Minecraft-esque elements could make their way into the next Lego adventure.

sounds good, if you took away the lego look and everything else played the same way, would they be as successful or fun?

I agree it wouldn't, but if gameplay stayed the same, just more realistic characters, I'd like to give it a shot. Is it because they are legos and their humor is top notch so they can get away with stuff that wouldn't work at all if they were more real?

Picked up my XboxOne on Saturday and its still sitting in the box. I think I am going to end up returning it. I think just like the PS4 if they would have come out the gates with a big gun like Halo they would have had me.

I think that is the reason. It is a more laid back fun game, and the Lego atmosphere is a big part of that.

If it was the same gameplay, but more "serious" graphics, it just wouldn't have the same fun feel. I'd expect the game to be more serious in nature.

Just about Skyrimed out, this time I think for good. I set Steam to re-download Bioshock Infinite before I left for work this morning. The first part of the "Burial At Sea" DLC is out. I've stayed away from reviews, although I have seen some mentions that it's very short.
