Is he handing in his resume to Sony as well?
All that was missing was a "And i think i would be a great asset to the team!" lol

Still cant believe PS4's only launch titles are killzone and knack, while X1 has Forza 5, Ryze, Killer Instinct, and Dead Rising 3. At least it gives Sony some healthy competition.


I'd rather have a console that delivers quality exclusives like the X1 than worry about something like resolution for CoD. Quality exclusives > resolution. I guess PS fans really needed this though since they'll be the main ones playing CoD while all the X1 gamers will be playing Titanfall.

I still can't believe COD and BF4 are 720p!
Ju  +   834d ago | Well said
Hm...I'm in trolling mood.

- Forza looks like a last gen game (@1080p)
- Dead Rising...ported from 360
- Killer Instinct - nice, fighting game
- Ryse - looks great (but nobody seems to care)

What's left after? Games running 50% lower resolution. No indies what so ever...

Compared to probably the shooter which will outsell both, CoD and BF4:

Killzone:SF. Real next gen at 1080p. Note this down. It'll outsell both BF4 and CoD.

Resogun...compute excersice in pure 1080p@60fps (200k voxel engine??)

Knack looks better every time I see it. Maybe a nice distraction.

Doesn't even stop there. Contrast (not really exclusive), Warframe, War Thunder, Blacklight, and a bunch more.

It's interesting if the XBone launch line up is so interesting that Titanfall has to come up in every of those discussions.

You know by that time this launches we'll see Drive Club, inFamous Second Son and Destiny won't be far out either. And what ever is in the pipe.

Who knows. By that time the XBone might as well get it's first price drop. Either that or I put $200 into my PC and get it there if it's really that bad ass.

What and what isn't a quality exclusive is a matter of opinion.

And a console's launch titles are hardly a reliable indicator for what the future holds for that console.

MysticStrummer  +   834d ago
@Ju - That's not trolling. It's the truth. Forza's cars look great, but the environment does look very bland. Ryse is also ported from 360. It was supposed to be a 360 Kinect title.

@George - Are you actually implying no other games will be released for PS4 by the time Titanfall comes out? Also, those aren't PS4's only launch titles, but you know that. I know you know that.

Bruce_Wayne  +   834d ago

Well Killzone by itself is about 10K copies behind all three Xbox Exclusives combined in terms of preorders. So if you're gonna brag about which console has more exclusives, then grab onto your freaking sack and start preordering those damn exclusives because that talk about PS4 not having as many exclusives is beginning to get tiring. You better get a new trick, 'cuz that one's getting old.


This time it's different though. Killzone is getting much more attention and it's a launch game. It's not being overlooked by other console exclusives like it was on PS3.

Killzone to outsell what? They have a series record of just over 2 million units with Killzone 2. Killzone 3 didn't even come close to 2 in sales. Other than having little competition on the PS4, how are you coming up with that conclusion?

I do like how you call PS4 games "real next gen @1080p" and dismiss Xbox One 1080p games as being last gen. Ryse is a new IP and looks great so far. Nobody seems to care? That sounds like a better description of Knack. Games that started development for the Xbox 360 before changing to the Xbox One get a pass too due to when development started?

No indies? You don't even think games started for the 360 are any good and then you slam the console for not having "indies"? Do you honestly not read what you write before hitting the "add reply" button? Seriously, enjoy your PS4 in a couple weeks.
Xsilver  +   834d ago
@death well KZSF pre orders are higher that all the xone's launch games combined so what does that say about those games :/

So it should be easy to take last gen games to 1080p since you have everything developed all you have to do is Code it if that's your argument COD looks last gen and its 720p on the xone, since KZSF started from the ground up how long have they been making Ryse a veryyyyyyyyyyyyy long time.

I love indie games apparently the xone fanbase don't feel the same way anymore why because Sony has them :/.

Well, I think he knows his time at Microsoft is counted and he wants to return to Sony.
Let's face it, Microsoft in general is in deep sh*t, they cannot compete on any level for any of their products may it be phone, tablet, console.
Pre-built PCs are declining in favor of custom built (which they make little to no return on).
Phones; Android is king and even Black Berry is outselling the Windows phone.
Tablets; iPad is still outselling their Surface/RT 20:1.
All around, I have no doubt as to why Steve Ballmer is leaving. Everyone else fears they will loose their jobs just like Phil.
svoulis  +   834d ago

Just curious what "games" you are taking about that are all in 1080p on Xbox one. Last I saw it was one. Forza. A racing game. Just saying if you wanna start stating stuff please back it up. Hell we don't even know what most 3rd party games resolutions are. Don't know If you been doing research or not but all 3rd party games have been shown on PS4 and PC.

Looking forward to your response :D
wsoutlaw87  +   834d ago
xb1 launch exclusives are paid 3rd party deals. How long do you think they will keep paying for them. Just look at the 360 and dont let ms play you again in to thinking it will lots of exclusives, dont fall for it twice.

There's a bunch of PC ports and F2P games that look great and we'll be able to play them without spending hundreds more on an equivalent gaming PC.
There's a bunch of great, original, fun and cool looking indie and arcade titles we'll be playing.
There's a bunch of current gen games getting higher quality ports that we'll be playing. Standing out the most for me: DCU Online, FF14 Arr, Injustice Ultimate Edition, all in 1080p with higher quality, next gen assets to boot.
THEN there's the multiplatform games that X1 and PS4 share
THEN there's Sonys games.
The cherry on top is PS+ continuing to give us games, GOOD GAMES, NEW GAMES! Not the 5-6 years old crap Games with Gold is handing out.

It's weird how trolls try to claim PS4 to be lacking in games when we'll have way more games and games X1 either won't get at launch or won't be getting period. Of the games X1 IS getting, PS4 will be getting the better versions.

X1 is the overpriced underdog, get use to it.
Enjoy what it offers but don't try to make bs claims that it is in any way better than the PS4. That's a lost battle.

Learn a lesson from Phil Spencer and just be civil. We CAN get along.

What games am I looking forward to in 1080p? None. I really do not care what the resolution is when I pick up a game. All the Uncharted games and The Last of Us ran in 720p natively and that did not stop them from being great games. If resolution was that important to me, I would buy all my multiplats on my PC which has much more power than either of the new consoles. Forza is in 1080p and strangely fanboys claim that it doesn't count. At 10-15 feet away I assure you the entire resolution superiority lives in the heads of those that want to claim it. I am not smart enough to really see the differance in 720p upscaled to 1080p vs 1080p natively from that distance. I'm struggling to see enough differance to care with the static images hitting the internet.

At the end of the day if knowing your game is running natvely instead of upscaled makes you feel better, then I am very happy for you. I'm simply looking for an enjoyable experience that is worth the $60 I paid.
Ju  +   834d ago
Hey, I like Ryse. Knack doesn't claim to be a system seller, just FYI. But still runs 1080p. the only title pushing the XBone. What does that tell you???

Well, It'd probably sell more if it would be on the PS4 to begin with. And probably would run 1080p. Playstation has a GoW crowd, you know. And in pre-orders it's nowhere to be found. Isn't it an insult that it has to battle it out with Knack, actually? For the budget it goes by...ts ts. I'd get it if it would be a PS4 game...but unfortunately it isn't.

BTW: Looking at Amazon Germany (pre)orders, PS4 covers 8 out of the top 10 spots, KZ:SF the second best title after AC:4 (Germans like their adventure I suppose). XBone is at 49...Ryse - made in Germany - 89...just saying.
svoulis  +   834d ago

Yes you are correct. playing games on THIS GEN of consoles like The Last of Us, Uncharted, Halo 4, etc. are acceptable @720p, WHY? Because we are nearing the end of the consoles actual life cycle (even with support after next-gen launch)

But what you're saying is, that the means don't have to justify the end? How do you expect the Xbox One to compete in 4 years from now due to its already hindering limitations. The performance gap between the 2 is much wider now, and because its x86 architecture, you have to look at it in a PC perspective. Devs know what to do with the hardware, sure they'll be firmware updates,optimizations etc. But it wont change the specs on the consoles, which are basically PCs.

APU's function far better on faster memory. Add that to the idea of PS4 GPU just being almost 30% better across the board then you have things to worry about. Sure you can accept the games running at 720p on a piece of 500 dollar tech. Or you could look at it from the wider perspective of "where will this console be 5 years from now?"

Devs will utilize both consoles to their fullest extent, but do not expect to see the leap of graphics that you saw last generation, because both systems are no longer "unique" technically. Will devs utilize whats there making things look better/run better etc? Sure, because that's their job.

But to try and defend, the idea that the game doesn't have to run at native 1080p to enjoy it is one thing. But to sit here and try to justify that spending 500$ on a console with the expected shelf life of 8+ years. Yea, thats scary.

And georgenoob doing some D-class one bubble trolling as per n4g.

It's kinda true though, if the launch line up for the XB1 is so amazing, why isn't it doing it any favours? PS4 seems to be coping extremely well with a supposed "weaker" launch line up and suffering from unfortunate delays...and still it's doing extremely well. The PS4 is selling itself pretty much.
miDnIghtEr20C_SfF  +   834d ago

insomnium2  +   833d ago

Exactly and we all know that PS3 will be up there with 110-140 million consoles sold after they stop manufacturing the thing it all makes gamer666's comment seem just flat out stupid. I really don't understand what makes people blind to this thing. PS3 will be around for many many years. It will pass Wii in sales in a couple of years. It will go on and sell almost as much as PS2 did give or take 20%. This is all common knowledge people.

bf4 is 900p on ps4... so no just like xbone not every game will have full hd, this is going to be the gen of sub hd/720 60fps.

also sony fanboys have you ever considered a pc since you want the best specs?

also can someone tell me some ps4 games that are 1080p 60 apart from kz which is mixed res of 1080p 30 & 60? resogun? LOL a 2d shooter haha it looks awful.

seriously spec battles are getting lamer, both consoles will output simular graphical power with ps4 being a bit better its not a huge advantage, imo xbone has better titles like titanfall, dead rising, forza, halo & gears as well as a better online service with dedicated servers... ps4 has kz and.........knack? lol

I also played it at Gamers' Day 13 , I would say that there is a little aliasing just like Forza 5 , but it doesn't suck
ebreda  +   834d ago
Mostly, the handling. I couldn't figure out if they are going for sim or arcade, it seems stuck at middle ground and it does not benefit the title.

Also, and more importantly, inconsistency. I drove the Aston Martin and sometimes when turning the game would put you in an immediate drift, sometimes not. I was cautious enough to notice my speed when approaching the turns and even at similar speeds and similar turns, sometimes I was sideways right off the bat, sometimes not. It was really weird.

Also the game didn't seem to provide enough visual cues of under or oversteering. It's hard to explain, it just seemed off somehow. It immediatly reminded me of the consistency I get when playing Burnout or N4S.

I won't complain about graphics, visually it was a beautiful game from what I could see (during my 8-10 minutes hands on with the title). The section I was playing was a highway through a forest, it reminded me of a specific area in N4S HP2, but much more detailed, specially the trees. Draw distance was huge as well, there was a gap in the scenery and I could see a sort of a canyon that went on forever.

I noticed just a tiny bit of aliasing on the guard rails, and I was looking for it. I'm sure it won't be a problem when driving properly.

Weather was sunny, it seemed to be around noon or so.

Even the frame rate was good enough, even though I always advocate about the need for 60 fps in racing games.

The problem, as I said, was the gameplay. I was there with an editor for a major gaming site in Brazil and his opinion was quite similar to mine. Somehow, the handling was off, the car felt stiff

@Back-to-back Well, If I'm pauper, even more reason to try the game on a game show.

Lol, Seems like he's giving honest opinions on them. Shu has done the same, Hes been on record in saying that They are happy MS took to needs of gamers and quickly changed the policy as its more consumer friendly. While also saying that Sony is the challenger because theyve totally acknowlegded that the xbox 360 has sold amazingly the states.

Its refreshing when suits do this from time to time.

Still Too many blunders and far too many proofs that the X1 is underpowered to even consider owning it. Im happy with the PS brand. Nov 15th cant get here soon enough!

Those comments aren't really the same, they're back-handed compliments intended to paint Sony in a positive light.

This would be more like a Sony exec saying something like "Yeah Titanfall looks like it might be good, Respawn are a talented studio".

Phil doesn't seem to be spinning any angle at all, he's either very confident that MS have their own market or he is waving a white flag...

Can't help but have sympathy for the guy, of the three (Private Larry, Penello and him) he is the most down to earth. He has never been caught spilling bullshit. Respect!

This is a very smart and respectful tone. I liked it. Humility is needed during new hardware launches .
tanookisuit  +   834d ago
He's definitely the most likable of the "Xbox camp" (IMO). His response was very tame, but indeed respectable.

OOOOHHH Titanfall....Titanfall....Tita nfalll...Xbots can ONLY throw that name out there, as every other exclusive they have is shameful compared to even Nintendo....And Georgenoob apparently will only EVER be playing that one said MS exclusive, while he believes in his fanboy convuluted mind that PS4 owners won't be hammering away on WHAT??? a non FPS, like Infamous:SS, or maybe we can get our Destiny on....although hypocritical Xbots now believe Bungie is an unworthy developer....hahahhaha. Well, unless they've gone multiplat to deliver such drivel as FUSE, like Insomniac (not to mention there past 2 or 3 Ratchets on PS3), then I believe Destiny will be the shooter to watch....Your little Titanfall dross is just COD with MECHS you tossers, so stop spoontering over another damn FPS, while dressing down ALL other FPS's in the process, as it seems a bit hypocritcal to say COD sucks now, when it is STILL THE KING OF FPS's from a sales perspective & even gameplay wise. And the fact is, your beloved Killer Instinct is just a glorified indie title, & Dead Rising is barely better looking than a PS3/360 Dead Rising title, & when I played it at EB's Expo, well, lets just say, my friend & I thought it should have been renamed Dead Boring 3......It was so BASIC & 5min fun, that it too is more a $12 indie title. So, when push comes to shove, PS4 will have more exclusives on DAY 1 with KZ:SF, KNACK, Resogun, Octodad, Mercinary Kings, Rays The Dead, Warframe, DC Universe Online, Blacklight:R, Contrast, Flow, Escape Plan, Flower, Playroom, Soundshapes & other such indie's...& although a couple maybe coming across from PS3, well, thats great as some may not have experiences gems like Flower yet, & without 7yrs worth of games on the system, they have a better chance to garner some decent sales, also many will re-download them again, as they liked them so much & will play again. But, early next year, oh lordy, wouldn't I HATE to be an XBone ONLY owner then, as in the 1st 3 months, PS4 owners gets Infamous, Driveclub, Planetside 2, & a bunch more indie gems I'm sure, & from there Destiny, whcih is already CONFIRMED as the definitive version through extra content & I'm sure PS4's extra grunt will ensure smoother frame rates, higher res & all round better performance...& then there's The Order we have to look forward to, as well as an inevitable GOW sequel I pray for, not to mention Abe's World: New'N'Tasty, Primal Carnage, Day Z which is ALL but confirmed for PS4, GT7 or GT6:Interlude which we all know will happen with GT5 sales & even what GT6 will muster up on PS3 alone, & this is without mentioning Guerilla's new IP, not to mention Naughty Dog. What was the name of that new MS console again?

This whole thread has been occupied by supporters of sony so you copied and pasted this on the wrong post.

As in no one was mentioning Titanfall.

Didn't God of War dev give some praise toward Ryse? I'm glad they don't talk bad about each other. I hope everyone is treated good with their choices in next gen. I'm getting PS4! Just be happy with your choice! ^~^

I cant wait to play Killzone its just sitting around waiting to be opened and played. I also cant wait till Microsoft drops the Kinect and price for Xbox one. I will then buy there system as well. I'm pretty sure this generation will see some amazing titles on both platforms. I'm eager for both, However, right now I'm dying to play my PS4 and future great titles such as The Order, Infamous, Evil Within,

Phil is always a classy guy.He gave props to sony as anyone in his position would do. Doesn't mean he thinks they are better than MS though. he knows he has it good where he is and would never trade places with someone over there. Phil Harrison know whats coming and you can see where is is now.

I think its hilarious the fan boys on here defending two pieces of plastic with laptop CPU's, GPU's, 5400 rpm drives and pay to play as next gen. Its about as cutting edge as a 3 year old PC... congratulations on your big score. Neither side has bragging rights, and every time the fan boys on this site state their ignorant opinions as fact, they prove it.
