PSXE Poll Update: Duke Not King, But Still Pretty Cool
With the news that Duke Nukem Forever is actually coming, we wanted to know: is it still "Hail to the King, baby!" or has Duke lost his sex appeal?
Well, it's somewhere in between. The majority of gamers think it's pretty cool that Duke is back, and a healthy percentage are quite excited. However, about 40% of those polled are indifferent to the whole situation, so it seems that his 13-year absence has taken a bit of a toll. Firstly, there's a whole new generation of gamers who have never even heard of him. Secondly, there's a large number who are just sick and tired of FPSs (especially those that don't appear to bring anything new to the table). Thirdly, there's the skeptical group, comprised of people who aren't 100% convinced that Gearbox can deliver a top-notch, must-play product. But even so, it's actually a little surprising to see how many gamers are just tickled pink that Duke is back, and they really can't wait for his return. Well, you know, people are probably going to be split on this issue until we get more info and media, and that's plenty logical.
This week, we're wondering if you're a PlayStation Plus member. If not, are you planning to sign up some time soon? Or does it not interest you? Plus is the new premium service available to Network subscribers; the regular service is still free, but you can land a few great perks for the price of $17.99 for three months or $49.99 for a full year. What say you?
