Hopefully that means Gamesharing also.

Hey one can hope.

malokevi1007d ago

Definitely! I'm pretty confident that eventually there will be something along the lines of game sharing. We'll see, though. Personally, I want to see something unexpected and cool!

So when micro talks about some cool new X1 features you get "well he works for microsoft"

...but when Cerny talks about ps4 features its gospel.
"Mark Cerny, has revealed some important details regarding GPU of the PlayStation 4 and how it is extensively customized and will be future proof."

"Mark Cerny on PS4: GDDR5 Latency Not "Much of a Factor""
http://n4g.com/news/1309843...

-Look at the reactions on those threads, aahh no doubt about; "I must belive".

he's excited ha?

is he more excited about it than that guy at the end?

DragonKnight1007d ago

@JokesOnYou: Notice how those headlines don't contain Cerny's opinion but a statement of his knowledge about the system. Major Nelson is a PR guy, he literally IS paid to be excited about anything Xbox related. Cerny is the system architect, so what he says carries a lot more weight than a hype man.

gaffyh1007d ago

@JOY - There's a difference between opinion and someone just explaining features. The title of this story is stupid because of course he will be excited by it, really the title should have something to do with the features that he talks about in the story.

Also, Cerny is a developer, and the engineer of the PS4, so he knows what he is talking about although there is an element of bias. Major Nelson is just a popular exec, he's like Reggie, people like him, but he knows crap all about the actual system he is flogging. Just look at the Angry Joe interview with him, Joe asked him about DRM and that he "knew it was a switch they could flip", and Major Nelson went all defensive saying he can't know. A week later, complete DRM reversal.

@Jokesonyou
Difference is that M Nelson lied big time to all xbox potential customers about DRM not being able to be removed, it was impossible due to technical reasons....then we know thw rest

Well of course he's going to say he's excited!! I mean he's the face of Xbox!! DUH. What's he going to say???? Ummmm well we're going to put a spy camera in your home so our friends at the NSA and watch and listen to everything you do in your living room and we're going to charge you 100.00 more for a vastly inferior piece of hardware and that makes me excited!!!!!! Oh this is just too funny. xbone fanclub getting wound up because the fanclub leader says he's excited about a product being released from his employer which he has the responsibility of marketing????? Hello?

UnHoly_One1006d ago

@MazzingerZ

He didn't "lie" about anything, give me a break. You seriously think he knows everything about the inner workings of how the console is designed?

He said it's not as easy as just flipping a switch. And it obviously isn't, because it technically isn't changed yet.

The XB1 still REQUIRES an internet connection when you first hook it up, so that it can download an update that makes the necessary changes to allow it to work offline.

@malokevi
It has been confirmed that game sharing will come back but will not be available at launch. I belive I read about it on OXM.

Pro Racer1005d ago

Another great MS propaganda piece. Can't wait to watch movies and tv for 30 seconds while the game finds a match...

This is one if the much needed positives for the XB1. They're at least attempting to move online gaming forward. Everything sounds beneficial, but we'll have to see real world experience first.

greenlantern28141007d ago

it is not like he was going to say the reason i hate xb1 or hey here are some reasons you should buy a ps4. it would be like Cerny going man the ps4 is terrible.
on a side note the xbox1 matching could be bad or good since it is a good thing to be matched with people who are not gonna call you raciest names but a bad thing if you never get matched with anybody out side your skill level. if your goal is to improve you need to play people better than you.
