It’s PAX this weekend here in Seattle, and one would think that early afternoon on a Friday would be a fine, slow time to meet with executives from the likes of Microsoft.
Developers can always choose what to do with resolution. When the Xbox 360 shipped there was a game that supported 1080p even though few people had TVs of that resolution at the time. We’re doing the same thing here. If they want to use it, they can, and the Xbox can handle it.
Are you going to comment on it or just leave the quote chilling there??? OT: It is nice 4K is supported but I am not expecting any console to pump out 4K games. I just don't think they are realistically capable nor is it necessary. 1080p 60FPS is enough when the rest of the resources can be put into AI, physics and other exciting gameplay mechanics.
You tried ever so hard to get this article disapproved try harder next time chump use that big brain :) If they can make some games running in 4k at 30fps and that aren't that graphically demanding id still be happy with that.
"You tried ever so hard to get this article disapproved try harder next time chump use that big brain :) " What are you talking about. I approved the article after you made the necessary changes which were: it needs to be an interview and the image was broken. It is how this site works.
Yeah for some reason the image when i went to approve disappeared was weird. And it's still news! It gives away the release date of November 31st ;) Anyway thank you for your support buddy!
4K is the stuff of dreams, I agree with you superman there is no way games will be output at that resolution in this generation without serious cost to all the other components that make up a game. Also, not quite sure why B-Radical feels the need to call you a chump, seems quite immature to me.
You could run games like angry birds at 4k I'd imagine... Your right about not getting AAA games at 4k.. I don't think that's possible... But smaller, less intensive games could
"Let’s get real: Have you played the new Halo? And how is it? I have not. I wish I had, but I haven’t. I’m sure it’s going to be great though." Lol... that question makes me smile 😊
The 360 only supports games upscaled to 1080p not native. And most 360s didn't even have a HDMI in port at first.
Why are you guys arguing over this?..its great the xbox one has such a feature..and gamers should be happy about that..
Really cool interview.
Ah Forbes, the one place on the net that announced the next day that "Microsoft won the battle of the reveals" because "they showed the box and that matters". I've not been able to take them seriously since then. http://www.forbes.com/sites...
Want even more of a laugh (at Forbes' expense): http://www.forbes.com/sites... Wow, they really have their finger on the pulse of gaming/s
Wonder if they don't wait to long with the release date announcement.
"The Xbox One’s TV side seems to rely heavily on a cable or satellite TV subscription. What about the future of non-cable TV? Are you worried about cord cutters at this point? Right now, no. If you look at what’s going on in TV there’s a lot of innovation and a lot of shaking things up. Cable TV and app based TV and IP based TV and who knows what’s next. We’re not just focusing on current TV models because those models are changing." And yet cable dependency seems built directly into the system.
plus, he mentioned HBO Go... you need cable and an HBO subscription to have access to HBO Go. MS is working with the existing cable boxes. Sony's game plan seems better to me in that they are attempting to be the provider, not just a pass-through.
@Godmars290: You *conveniently* left the follow up question that clarifies the reason why: "So you’re prepared for the so-called cable cutters? Absolutely. Our vision is that these new TVs systems are all blended. The idea is to use them all. With the HDMI in, the system will adapt to the future. HDMI via cable box for now, but we have Xfinity and HBO Go already. The Xbox One can use any broadcast source that they come up with." It is the all-in-ONE box! @harrisk954: "Sony's game plan seems better to me in that they are attempting to be the provider, not just a pass-through." MS has original content up their sleeve, but there are massive costs associated with this as well. Why not let the third party providers do what they do best? Create great content! Why would MS dabble in something that really isn't their business? It's like you have to create movies because you have a blu-ray drive or create music simply because you can playback audio. As far as I can tell, MS is creating appealing content that are taking advantage of their new platform. That is interactive TV and such, which makes sense to showcase your platform and provide inspiration.
"Absolutely. Our vision is that these new TVs systems are all blended. The idea is to use them all." That's PR BS for working within the current cable setup, which includes having to use a cable box in order to have cable features. At the very least as they have things planned the general consumer market wouldn't be aware of an a la cart system unless it was to MS's exclusive benefit. Its the All-In-One-Box you have to pay for so you can pay for other things to use it with.
@Nukeitall Its not the all-in-ONE anything, if it were you wouldn't need a cable box or an hdmi in because it would ALL be in the box already. That's why the name is so dumb. Xbox One - the all-in-one box that requires more boxes to work???? Wtf!!
Its built to adapt as they understand Cable TV as we know it is changing.
Considering all the TV related apps available to the 360, the cable viewing app that system is going to get, it was a bit redundant of them to build in much less advertise as a key feature an HDMI in port. While its obvious that consumer demand has been calling for a la cart cable services, which can be done via internet and means which don't even require cable, MS have gone to much effort to ground the XB1 towards current, antiquated, methods.
The more I hear from Penello, the more I like the dude. He seems way more down to earth than Spencer or, ugh, Mattrick, since he is more a tech guy. He also seems to be the new MS go-to guy to answer internet flare-ups. Good interview, and btw Afdleck was the bomb in Phantoms, yo.
