True but doesn't make the situation any better. The Switch wiped the floor with the PS4 last year but this year has been slow for it too with it relying mostly on wiiu ports so far.

Gone are the days were you can produce a game for one system and get enough sales to be a success. Unless you have platform holder incentives you can't release on just one system and hole to make a profit.

It's been great with games like Persona 5, Horizon, Bloodborne, Uncharted 4, Until Dawn & God of War is fantastic. Spiderman, Ghost of Tsushima, Death Stranding & Last of Us part 2 coming.
If you haven't got a PS3 it's better with stuff like the Uncharted trilogy, Last of Us & Shadow of the Colossus.

1 had been remastered and is out in Europe, called Yakuza Kiwami. 2 has been remastered and is releasing this summer called Yakuza Kiwami 2. 3,4 & 5 remasters are all in the works , should release about a 6 months to a year after their Japanese release.

I'd go so far to say that both systems have line ups of exclusives that put to shame the PS4 and XBox One.
Nonsense. On metacritic the Psp's top 5 games are only between 89-91% which is very poor compared to the top ps2/ps3/Xbox360/DS games, and the vita only manages 2 games above 88% making is one of the worst consoles. The ps4 is a superb console, it's got some great exclusives, 33 games at 89% or above on metacritic (true lots aren't exclusive). I know your whole point is exclusives but I'm not seen that many exclusives with great reviews. I guess my whole issue with the psp/vita is the fact that it's more of a if I need a 4th or 5th console I will get it.

Yes it is, it's as close as your going to get to general opinion.

TotalBiscuit has passed away:

I was far from a fan of his work and often disagreed profoundly with his stances... but always admired his honesty and bravery when it came to his battle with cancer. Nobody deserves that miserable disease. RIP to him.

John Bain aka TotalBiscuit died yesterday after a long battle with cancer. I loved his 'WTF Is..' videos. Always my go to when I wanted to see how a game played without some annoying ****head roaring at me.

R.I.P John

Extremely shocked to see the news of TB passing away. When I saw his update a week or two ago I knew it wasn't going to end well, but I didn't expect it to be so soon.

I'd the good pleasure of working alongside Slanik at Blizzard and he spoke pretty fondly of his time on WoW Radio. I was a big, big fan of his and I can say honestly he was extremely popular in the office too.

He moved away from WoW at the right time for him, going from Blue Plz! to Cynical Brit and his famous WTF is series.

The man was a total advocate for gamers and gamers consumer rights, and will be missed.

Metacritic is literally a barometer of quality.

The quality of a game is completely subjective and based solely on opinion. Metacritic is as much of an aggregate of those opinions as possible. Is it flawless? Absolutely not. But how else can we measure the quality of games in any kind of realistic, non-subjective way?

I liked his WTF videos too. No bull****, straight to the point. I find that any gaming video that begins with "Hi guys" or "Ok Guys" is absolute trash.

Just sow myself about TB. Like him or hate him, but he was extremely important person in gaming community. For me personally, he was one of the first youtubers I actually subscribed to and he started off my subscriptions list on youtube.

RIP.
