you don't get any more 'core' than Call of Duty. Having Activision partner with us to bring the Call of Duty world exclusive to our event was pretty amazing.

Edit: Just reading through that makes me so sick.The way he tries to spin things, dodge questions and ramble about something irrelevant to the question.

Just admit it's a freaking user locked disc behind a paywall, you dbag.

I know I'm being crazy by bringing up graphics (seeing how there was SO MUCH other stuff that went wrong with the reveal), but anyone else underwhelmed by the graphics that Xbox One showcased?

I mean, it's crazy - CRAZY! - to compare the graphics of two next-gen systems. I know. But in the midst of all of the other nonsense, I thought the Xbone's graphics were pretty...incremental.

hazelamy1133d ago

well, the only game that showed actual graphics was COD wasn't it?

not actual gameplay, but still, what the machine could actually produce in real time as opposed to all the other stuff that was prerendered.

It's hard to say for me.

There were a few seconds of game play graphics in quantum break, along with what i assume is a in-game cut-scene. The game play part didn't look amazingly great. Heavy Rain was more impressive and it's a few years old now...but again I'll say we didn't get to see enough to make a fair comparison.

EA was mostly work-in-progress stuff, followed by a pre-rendered(arguably in-engine) demo which doesn't give a true understanding of it's real world potential.

Forza may have been in game, but I doubt you'll see that level of detail in game play based on the specs of the video card, so it was likely selective graphics like most tech demo's are.

COD I'm skeptical on. It didn't look good enough to be PC, and only looked marginally better than what we have now.

So it's not so much that I was underwhelmed..it's more that I don't think we've actually seen it yet.

Can you tell Philly used to be in charge of SONY?

Every time Microsoft employees open their mouths they just make it worse for themselves.

I really don't see any point in interviewing Phil about anything. This guy's answers are straight from a script and it is definitely what any Harvard/Stanford 7 or more figured salary company man would say. Straight text book.

very impressive.

'and then you don't get any more 'core' than Call of Duty.'

That made me chuckle.
