Okay, nothing an update can fix.

JoGam975d ago (Edited 975d ago )

They gotta fix the problem first. Then update with the fix.

@Lalanana my fanboy friend, I hope so.

Lalanana975d ago

lol those rumors are getting out of hand. November 22 cannot come soon enough..

P0werVR975d ago

What is an update for?! And what problem are you on about???

thorstein975d ago (Edited 975d ago )

I said this a bit back. XOne: delay if you have to. PS3 came out a year AFTER X360. There is no reason to launch this console if it isn't ready.

I hope they fix it soon - for all great XB1 gamers sakes. No one deserves this.

Guess rushing things will create problems on both sides. Great gaming awaits us all next gen once all these problems are ironed out.

Oh Snap!

but seriously MS can patch this in hopefully shortly after the X1's initial launch.

"Okay, nothing an update can fix."

From article:

3. And this is from a dev: “No matter what they do with tools, ES RAM will always be a bottleneck. No chance in hell for parity with PS4.”

Sorry to say but an update can't fix that.

I'm sorry I have to LOL, it's quite funny that you regard THUWAY's tweets from his "extremely reliable source" a fact!

It's obvious for all others than people with sony-glasses that this thuway is a genuine TROLL.

No way MS would have released a console with ESRAM if it would mean a bottleneck for the system!

IcicleTrepan975d ago

Nowhere in your 'from the article' does it say that an update can't fix whatever the issue in question is, which probably is more of a non-issue.

-Foxtrot975d ago (Edited 975d ago )

If the third point about the ES RAM is to be believed will developers hold back PS4 versions with features and other stuff because of this? Honest question because you know what Microsoft's policies are like...something along the lines of "If you make a better version for another system you can't publish your game on our console"

I mean in a way after what has happened over the recent months developers especialy higher up ones like Rockstar, Valve, Irrational, Rocksteady, Konami for example have the upper hand. I mean for example why would Microsoft refuse to have something like Read Dead 3, the next Bioshock or even Half Life 3 on their consoles. If MS starts to bow down to those developers then it could set off a chain reaction for even smaller devs to do it aswell.

mkis007975d ago

I agree. Bet you anything all these ps4 and xbox1 rumors will turn put to be no worse than ps3 and 360 launch problems minus red ring and hardware failures in general. I dont believe a single hardware failure rumor this gen. It would ruin said company this time no matter whp it happened to. Overall I think we are just so dwprived of real hard factual info so close to launch thar we all have to jump on each other. Its a really hot day and there is no water.

I said the same thing

[email protected] this got approved fast...lol

majiebeast975d ago (Edited 975d ago )

Doesnt anyone find it strange there has been no live demo of the Xbone UI only that fake representation video.

Penello's reason why there has been no live demo also puts up a red flag.

https://twitter.com/albertp...

You cant do a live demo because of ads.. yeah right who do you think you are with this.

All is not well in Redmond is my bet so much secrecy and sidestepping questions.

AngelicIceDiamond975d ago

Don't worry MS will be fine at the end of the day.

Soldierone975d ago

Maybe Google can show them how to feed fake placeholder ads in the OS so they can avoid that issue.... lol

TechMech2975d ago

It's strange the lack of any concrete gameplay or user interface from Xbox one from any sort of retail hardware, and makes you wonder whether Microsoft wasn't ready for the eighth gen, and simply surprised by playstation 4's power

IcicleTrepan975d ago

yeah the SUVs driving around letting people play them or the units set up in major malls in the USA and Canada must be tricking people into thinking they're playing them.

Use your frickin brain.

TechMech2975d ago

@IcicleTrepan
After the red rings of death incident, I don't trust Microsoft in the slightest when it comes to new hardware.

mhunterjr975d ago (Edited 975d ago )

They have done various live UI Demo's for the press and a various trade shows... im not sure why people keep claiming its under wraps. http://www.wired.com/gadget... ,
http://m.youtube.com/watch?...

And as you can see, they had to either blur the tv content or used licensed footage, so yeah licensing is obviously a real issue.

lifeisgamesok975d ago

Sounds like some people don't want the Xbox One to sell

JoGam975d ago

Agreed. I'm not getting a Xbox One but damn I don't hate it. This ish is out of control.

PS4OUR975d ago (Edited 975d ago )

Out of control??

I guess you were not around for the launch of the PS3 then?
Because the same shit happened back then, only it was Sony in the firing line.

So don't for a moment think Sony fans are being asses because the same can be labelled for Xbox fans back when Sony was chucked on the grill.

It goes both ways buddy

-Foxtrot975d ago (Edited 975d ago )

@PS4OUR

Even then with all the hate the PS3 got it's not as bad as whats happening with MS now.

The main problem and I said main problem with the PS4 was the price, that was the "HOLY S***" moment but now looking back with the blu ray player where players back then were like double the price of the PS3 and the fact it's memory has allowed great stuff to happen on the PS3.....it's not as bad

With the PS3 you were paying more, for more

However with the Xbox One it seems your paying more for less

I don't hate the Xbox One games or Microsoft exclusives in general....I just hate Microsoft at the minute

Deadpoolio975d ago

It's no worse than the delusional nitwits who can't admit that it's not going to sell as well as Microsoft is hoping, and that there are issues that might point towards them rushing it to the market yet again. As bad as their 55% failure rate for 4 years with the 360 hopefully not or probably not for the people who actually want to purchase it...... So it works both ways with the overly hateful and the Microjizz gargling delusional

christocolus975d ago (Edited 975d ago )

@lifesagame

and thats the irony cos the console is going to be very successful...i and everyone on my friends list is getting the console at launch and so with millions of others..fanboys only constitute a tiny tiny fraction of gamers world wide...in the end their opinions are like a drop of water in the ocean..those who want the xbx one have already pre ordered or are saving up as we speak for launch day or post launch....

Kayant975d ago (Edited 975d ago )

And it begins again.... Thanks console launch for the entertainment so far.

Also I love this guys passion... He is really trying to help MS here. The best way to debunk all this is show a real life UI OS tour same to Sony as well we are missing that from both I know Sony did so it at GC but launch is so close full tour is needed for both.

PS4OUR975d ago (Edited 975d ago )

Some French website was messing around on the PS4 UI for a whole 30 minutes. Yoshida jumped on stage with a PS4 and did a quick demo of multitasking on the PS4 then joined an online Killzone ShadowFall match, LIVE.

I can't say the same for the Xbox One.

Something is amiss here. It doesn't take a genius to figure things out. They (MS) are having problems. Whether it gets remedied before launch is anyone's guess.
