Xbox One New Details: Media Files, HTML5 Support, "Developers Loving System SDK and Performance"

Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb talks all about the Xbox One. (Xbox One)

I wish digital game prices were discounted (on or around launch). :/
BluEx610  +   795d ago
They kind of are discounted since they don't charge you for sales tax.

"The main difference here is that on PS4 it's the indie devs themselves saying they love the SDK and environment, here it's Major Nelson saying that devs love the Xbone SDK. All credibility goes out the window right away."

thanks XtraTrstrL for pretty much sum this whole thing up...^^
tokugawa  +   795d ago
lol so, he makes a ps4 comparison comment just for the fanboy response, then says that he doesn't know what the 8gig of flash memory is for....??

the whole thing smacks of trolling imo.

microsoft are upto something....
SilentNegotiator  +   795d ago

Yeah, it's pretty funny that Larry "Major Marketing Poppycock" Hryb has to tell us that the developers love the Xbox One SDK. It was probably their anonymous "confirmed xbox developer" on reddit that "informed" him how great the SDK was.
gaffyh  +   795d ago
So that port was a USB B port, wonder what it's used for in development.
donman1  +   795d ago
Not good enough as you cannot trade in a digital version of a game. Digital format should be at least $10 less.
FamilyGuy  +   795d ago
On a different note

Anyone else concerned about the statement on playing personal media files?

What do they mean "there would be a solution"? Does he mean they haven't chosen all the acceptable audio and video formats yet or that playing your own videos is current not possible and that they are working on it?

I'm pretty sure it's the first but it's weird that the basics on media reading isn't sorted out already. It'll be cool if it turns out to be able to read MKV files for example, subtitle options included. Neither system read them (natively) this gen.
UltimateMaster  +   795d ago
"However, he stated that, “Developers are loving the system SDK and the performance.” Interestingly, the user is working on systems for both the PS4 and Xbox One and has stated that he found “little to no difference on multi-platform titles” with both consoles working well performance wise and having similar features."

So basically, the SDK "Open GL or Direct X11" are basically the same.
But the PS4 is 50% stronger.

Nelson was taking about the kits being the same, not the consoles; read the article.

Xbox One will include Adobe Flash Player.
Sephiroushin  +   795d ago
Yeah but not only on or at launch, publishers don't use a single coin in handling /shipping etc but they still charge you it, digital should be cheaper... After 6 months of the release of X game you go to a store and that X game is $30 or less but on the PSN/Live still full price "smh" ... It's also why retail still has so much demand, why must we pay $60 for retail and $60 for digital even after that a game has received a price drop ...

@ BluEx610
Sales taxes has nothing to do with this, the state is the one that charge you the sales taxes, publisher do not spend money on shipping so they should not charge the product like they were spending money on shipping, plastic case and paper hell no...

PSN is matched with the retail prices most of the time. I recently noticed Ni No Kuni drop to $19.99 at walmart and I checked the digital version on PSN and it was dropped to $20 as well.

I'm not sure about every game (obviously) but that one was very noticeable because of how cheap it is already.
thehitman  +   794d ago
Its about keeping the retailers happy. Retailers wont be happy if everyone started dling the games instead of buying from their stores. Ultimately retailers could request less and less stock and spend less money advertising the products for them, but that is not an avenue anyone wants to go down.
Ipunchbabiesforfun  +   795d ago
Give it time and you'll see sales tax on that too. Just like the government is pushing Amazon to do.

just do what i did and change what state you live in in your profile. psn thinks i live in fla where there is no state income tax even though i don't live there. i don't pay any state sales taxes that way. This is especially good if you use psn cards. you get a $20 card and you can then buy a $20 game but i couldn't if i were to put in my real state.

steam isn't that great though, maybe they have good sales but on average games cost more than retail and amazon digital. never understood why pc gamers touted steam over amazon .

There is a reason actually within the first 6 months at least. it's to not not undercut retail partners who sony and ms depend on to sell their systems,games. other products.

1nsomniac  +   795d ago
This is the whole problem with digital downloads & why it hasn't & will never fully catch on.

Its all about greed, they don't want to have to pay fees to others for publishing, manufacturing, distribution but then instead of making the game cheaper to match the reduction in these costs they charge equal or even more.

People just arn't that stupid, they know that if companies forced digital only distribution the prices would show a huge massive increase. I could easily see prices going up to £100/$150 per game within the first year.
#1.8 (Edited 795d ago ) | Agree(4) | Disagree(1) | Report | Reply
nunley33  +   795d ago
you make some good points but it wouldn't get that crazy. no one would buy a standard copy for those prices and money still talks. the market still dictates price even in a full digital environment.
1nsomniac  +   795d ago
If the only place to get it is online then they control the price not us. No one can pick it up second hand or cheap from a shop sale or borrow it from a friend.

It's all greed & it will always be pushed to the maximum if given the opportunity.

Were already seeing the prices of next generation games rise to £60 or £70 digital downloads even though several developers & Sony themselves have also said games should be cheaper as tools & costs are becoming better & cheaper. I would put money on it that before next gen is over digital downloads will be forced to be more common & prices will be at £100.
r1sh12  +   795d ago
yea 100%.
There is no plastic for CD or case and no tax on it, so of course it should be cheaper.
But everyone wants to make the consumers pay even more

"That 8 GB of flash memory? Nelson has no idea currently, but will elaborate as his engineers provide more information. However, he stated that, “Developers are loving the system SDK and the performance.” Interestingly, the user is working on systems for both the PS4 and Xbox One and has stated that he found “little to no difference on multi-platform titles” with both consoles working well performance wise and having similar features. So developers are probably actually enjoying it."


I'm tickled. There's little to no difference, because the XB1 is the weaker console hardware-wise, and thus they're coding for your console as the LCD (lowest common denominator) when it comes to next-gen versions. On top of that Major Nelson is sharing the details from said developer, whereas developers have come out in masses in support of the PS4. Take a seat sir.

No shade to the XB1, but sunglasses on midnight to Mr. Larry Hryb.

hmm so Xbox cost $100 more and there is little to no difference on multiplat games? Guess I'm getting a PS4 and saving $100. thanks
MELMAN26  +   795d ago
Yes you will be saving $100 but you will be missing out on some cool exclusives.
AnteCash  +   795d ago

C-Thunder  +   795d ago
If you're concerned about exclusives and can only buy one, you wouldn't buy an Xbox.
syne49  +   795d ago
Oh come off it man. Just because you don't like the Xbox One doesn't mean it won't see worthwhile titles. I am buying a PS4 first but I would kill to have Crimson Dragon. If Yukio Futatsugi ends up making his Crimson Dragon rpg I will drop money on a one right there. Its going to be an awesome gen for both sides. Absolutely no need to be negative.
Salooh  +   795d ago
Most of Xbox exclusives go to pc. And MS have a bad history with exclusives.

That's why i'm not buying it . They are not fooling me again. However , each can make his own decision ^^ . I for one if i want something else then the ps4 , i will go for pc. I still don't see a solid reason to buy X1.
MELMAN26  +   795d ago
@14 Feb

I do not own a pc I would rather spend that money being a duel console owner and picking up the exclusives for each system plus non of my friends have gaming pcs anymore. Nothing against pc owners it's just my preference.

I just cannot see myself missing out on exclusives for either one of these 2 consoles. And when Nintendo gets more exclusives that appeal to me, I will get a Wii u as well.
Godmars290  +   795d ago
Isn't the same exactly true for the PS4, only you save $100?

Buy only one regardless, you're going to miss out on something.
MELMAN26  +   794d ago

Yes, but the way I see it...I would get the xbox first as killzone is the only ps4 launch title that I am interested in, then you have Deep Down and Infamous coming later on. You will not really see ps4 take off until year 2 or 3 when they unleash what Naughty dog and Sony Santa Monica has to offer.

For me, xbox has the heavy hitter exclusives for launch and the first year with games like Halo, killer Instinct, forza, DR3, Ryse and Quantum Break.
Liefx  +   794d ago
Or he could spend and extra $100 and miss out on some cool exclusives.

It goes both ways.
MELMAN26  +   795d ago
Why wouldn't he??
ABeastNamedTariq  +   795d ago
Maybe he doesn't like MS's exclusives? Or doesn't care for them enough to spend an extra $100?
MELMAN26  +   795d ago

Maybe, but that still doesn't mean that he will not be missing out on a few good exclusives.

If I didn't care for/play "the last of us", that doesn't mean that it wasn't a great exclusive that I would have missed out on.

I would let the person speak for themselves instead of speculating his or her potential taste in gaming.

I don't think I made the statement that it was. I could point out that there is a lot of known developers to come out and say the PS4 is better though. I've yet to see a developer that doesn't work for MS say the X1 is better. I honestly could care less what's more powerful. I know why I'll be buying a PS4 first and getting an X1 later on too.

Since when is it 'good press' to have your spokesperson go out and say something nice (and incorrect) about your system?

This just in, the Marlboro man say he likes Marlboros.

This just in, Ronald McDonald says he likes Happy Meals.

Actually Major Nelson's words are lies, and come from the company itself....so it's not really good press, when it's an employee, who's lying through his teeth.

"...a platform-agnostic development build can run at around 30FPS in 1920×1080 on PS4, but it’ll run at “20-something” FPS in 1600×900 on Xbox One. “Xbox One is weaker and it’s a pain to use its ESRAM,” concluded one developer."

3 days later...


"Ryse: Son of Rome has been confirmed as running at native 900p on Xbox One, Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg has clarified, after yesterday stating that it ran at 1080p."

The Edge article is credible since it states that if the Xbox One uses it's "full power" with no optimizations, the test resulted in a 900p resolution as the max. 3 days later, the best looking game on the Xbox One has been clarified to only run at a native resolution of 900p. If you connect the dots, then the ESRAM statement is true since the developer was spot on with the 900p resolution. What is there to gain for lying? The developer was just giving out the facts as requested by Edge, a reliable gaming magazine business in UK.

What's he losing? Xbox One is going to offer the 3rd best version of multiplatform games to purchase. So unless he's only capable of gaming the 4th best version Wii U, then what exactly is he missing?
MarkusMcNugen  +   795d ago

Yes. Lets ignore the Xbox One exclusives and any features the Xbox One has.

Ive seen so many people saying "But the devs... they say the PS4 is 50% faster." However I have yet to see any developer actually put there money where their mouth is. All Im seeing is "Some anonymous devs" on every article.

Ill believe it when impartial devs will openly say it, or benchmarks are produced for both systems.

Are the HDML5 features are behind the pay wall? What point is having a bunch of features behind a pay wall?

If you've bought the console why is it okay to pay by renting the rights to use basic features that should be given freely? Think about it most features are behind their Live subscription pay wall.

If you don't subscribe to live exactly what features aren't behind the pay wall? Think about it closely. It's okay to enjoy a product/features but they aren't all free.

Don't get me wrong. I just want people to realize that simply owning the console isn't enough. You need to keep subscribing to maintain most of its core functions.
shadyiswin  +   795d ago
um,you buy a system to play games first and foremost right? so why complain about pay walls? There's a reason why xbox is never hacked,updates quick and fast and just an overall smoother experience. Pay walls is why xbl is as great as it is,if you can't afford $5 a month then maybe you reconsider gaming or play on ps3 we won't miss you,but you wont,you will buy xbox live cause you know its the sh*t,on top of that ive had xbox live for 10 yrs and never have payed more than $40 for a year.
Gasian  +   794d ago

Sarick  +   794d ago

I'm a customer. I enjoy games. It doesn't matter if they was made in 1985 or recently released. If I don't like a game based on what I see I'm not going buy it. That doesn't mean I'm poor it just means I have a sense of subjective value.

It doesn't matter what company ruffles my feathers! If they appear to be exploiting me as a customer then I'm no ones B&(%h. I'll speak with my money and opinion.

When I look at the competition is see more customer friendly policies/practices. Does it matter what I think as a single entity? As an intelligent customer I choose not to support some business practices with my wallet. It's a personal choice that I feel is best suited to my moral standards.

I'm not wrong by pointing out most services are behind a paywall. Even the non-gaming ones that are being pointed out as bullet points as the system features. I don't see consoles as cheap toys. I see them as an entertainment investments.

I feel that If I pay hundreds for a console I should be allowed to use all services that are available for free on other multimedia devices without a paywall. If they can't do then they aren't getting a penny from me. This is just my choice. If you don't care about my reasoning then pay no attention to it.

The gaming community has the power to make or break the industry. If we as gamers throw our cash around like idiots companies will gobble it up and still want more. The moment we're less compulsive and start voting with our wallets is when the market thrives for us not the companies who wish to exploit us.

On a last note.. Xbox not/never been hacked? Umm. I'll let someone else talk about that. I'm no expert but from what I've read on the internet that's not entirely true.

Why argue about this?. Just wait for both consoles to prove them selfs in that subject. Then buy the platform you like.

The only game i'm interested in is quantum break which hopefully will come to pc.

That's not really a revelation. I could say most negative PS4 comments come from MS Fanboys, and it still holds true.

How about this though? I bought the 360 first, and love it, but I hate what the brand has become. Therefore, I will not buy the Xbox One.

Kryptix  +   794d ago
Gamertag: Kryptix7

74 games played on Xbox 360

^Proof that I own a 360 and experienced Microsoft's side of console gaming.

It's not just the Sony fanboys, it's a large percentage of gamers. Back when the polls ran after E3, PS4 dominated with a 75% against the Xbox One's 25%. Xbox loyalists love to live in their own world where Microsoft is perfect no matter how bad it is in the real world where everyone lives. The problem is, Xbots would take everything in and always point the finger into misinformation or don't look back at history. Weaker graphics? Point the finger at MisterX's blog filled with always changing, inconsistent BS or Microsoft's PR. You say it will have better exclusives? Microsoft hasn't supported the 360 very well after the release of the Kinect, 3 years since then.

Here's the difference between Sony fanboys and Xbox fanboys. Most Sony fanboys back what they say with logical facts or they won't say anything. Most Xbox fanboys believe in everything positive and nothing negative. I seen a lot of Xbox fanboys scrape off the negative like it was nothing. "Oh, the developers say the Xbox One is weaker than the PS4. Oh it's fine, cause games are still going to look better than the PS4." Like, how idiotic and stupid is that? lol I prefer the Playstation, but I'm not going to pretend that facts are lies. And so far, the PS4 is looking like the console to get if you want a true next gen console from start to end with better support by developers and Sony with their consumers.

It doesn't matter what company I choose. I have my own opinions. Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft all ruffle my feathers. I'm just one person and always choose the lesser disdain towards all.

Seriously, after what Microsoft tried with DRM licensing on XB1 and Windows 8 metro can you honestly with a straight face look at people and call them fanboys? There is some very well documented practices and policies that shouldn't be ignored. Ignorance of history is no excuse.

Microsoft isn't your friend. They're in it to make money. Sony and Nintendo are also in it to make money. There is little difference when you look at the big three.

The company with the most aggressive/exploitative strategy is the one with the highest negative public opinion. This is a subjective outlook created by action and the lack of respect not stupidity or simple arrogance.

Look at it like popularity in a social world. If one constantly attempts to exploit their friends for personal gain they start losing them. The reason so meny people may have so so much bias is because they feel betrayed and exploited.

The customers have spoken up. "WE are no ones Bi_RHch" The famous quote from William Congreve comes to mind as I write this comment.

"Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned,"

So the next time you declare no confidence in opinion look at the moral reality behind the stern bias some people have.

Funny how when PS4 is being praised, it's by developers but when xone is being praised it's by MS employees.

once both consoles are out and we see real performance differences between the 2 the bubble will burst. On favor of who? I'm not even gonna give an opinion on that, let the games do the talking.

Neither console have exotic architecture so there are no excuses now when it comes to multiplat development.

im happy for ms..they just need to keep focusing on making the console even beter.looking forward to launch..and im also happy about crimson dragon and d4..d4 especially .cos after reading the previews of d4 im so glad the kinect was included in the box....imagine what other devs can achieve with it.

We all know MS always provide kick ass SDks. Just one more week to go and we will probably find out eve more stuff about this awesome console.

HTML5 AND FLASH! This is great news! The best browser in the biz is being ported over just as I hoped. That means damn near every site on the web will be compatible...mix that with X1's ability to snap apps and multitask and it will be the ultimate entertainment device.

Wait, this isn't a satire article? I thought it was a joke at the point of not being able to play personal media files, no digital codes at retail, and the comment made about the RAM.

"Developers loving the system" - a blatant lie.

The truth is exactly the opposite, as one Ubisoft employee stated on twitter, that he's been working on next-gen for some time and hates Microsoft's platform because it's a terrible mess - went as far as to say that he wishes them death.

Add to that the fact that no 3rd party developer has ever publicly complemented X1 - everyone is generally mute about it.

know what would be great? if sony and micro put their best devs on a team and have them make a game for the 2 consoles and the game maxed out their respective platforms then we could put this console war to rest.

Developers are loving the performance? I should hope so.

Sony fan boys will come running to trash talk the Xbox they have nothing better to do with their sad lives. When the ps4 launches you won't have time to come on here as you will need 50 % more time to play those 50% more powerful games ha ha ha. Yeh right!
Empire X  +   795d ago
It was the same way with x box fans bashing the ps3. Funny how things have changed. Now both sides know what it feels like.

Larry "Major Lying His Pants off Nelson" Hryb

Opens his mouth once again only to have more BS fall out...

Nothing this guy says can trusted. Nothing but lies on top of lies. The king of used card sales men in a suit.

Gamers will be better once this meat brick is retired and off the scene of the gaming world...

MS brand will be much better off with out him...
