DayZ creator: Xbox One has "exciting things" coming, can't share details.

If comments from DayZ creator Dean Hall are anything to go by, it sounds like Microsoft is cooking up some exciting new features for the Xbox One. After meeting with Microsoft to discuss a console version of DayZ, Hall said he got to see some "really interesting" features coming to the platform, though he's not allowed to discuss them just yet. (Microsoft, Xbox One)

Keep the features coming MS. So glad I own an X1.

@bolts and rays
Nothing wrong with owning both. I personally am not interested in the ps4 though. I like MSs exclusives over sonys.

>I kinda like playing games.

That seems like a jab. Pretty uncalled for, Xbox is at least doing games right so far, there is plenty of play on the system.

Edit: Ah, I see. My bad, yeah, being able to play the best of both worlds is a fantastic position to be in.

Me too, that is why I bought the XB1 a month ago with Forza 5, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, and looking forward to Titanfall and Project Spark soon.

I also have a PS4, bought it at launch and haven't touch it in a month because I like playing games and the PS4 is in a drought right now.

Same here, atari 2600, c64, amiga500, PC 486, pentium 90, voodoo cards 4mb in pc, ps1, ps2, 360 and xbox one.

we didn't have this rampant fanboy problems back then. Due to net's anonymity even fat pimply kids can write so much negative things about something they dont like and think the world thinks the same way. Luckily n4g is only a negligible percentage of people and their opinions dont mean jack in real world, let them pray to $ony Gods and put MS down but MS are still doing better than these stupid people are writing about.
UncleGermrod  +   238d ago
@bolts, I got x1 first, but the best thing I ever did was jump on ps4 early. Now I do not need to miss out on anything, and the "console wars" do not exists in my realm.

Still, I love my x1, and this type of news has been more prominent lately. I always had a feeling that once the x1 hit the market and things began to flesh out a bit, that MS would show us plenty of reasons to have one.

PS4 Post 2014

Uncharted 4
Everybody's Gone to Rapture

XBone Post 2014

Quantum Break
Sunset Overdrive

Both consoles have things yet to announce and have good things to come. XBots are fools for saying PS4 has no games and PS4 fanboys are insecure and pathetic. People will get what they like, deal with it. There is nothing wrong with liking XBone.

Why I chose PS4...

Despite what XBots say, PS4 has more quality games in the making than XBone IMO (in sheer numbers alone regardless of quality is FACT) and launch line ups were pretty evenly matched. Furthermore I love 3rd party games as well, and getting the best version on those games is a huge plus. The PS+ value is just the icing on the cake.

MS is bringing the heat though (which I love). This competition is only going to push Playstation to continue delivering the quality titles I love to stay on top. As of right now, Titanfall and Quantum Break are all that the One has that could be a console seller (not a Halo fan), and the PS4 has so much on the way in the big picture that I won't have time to utilize both fully. Nothing against XBone, but for me PS4 is just better as a long term investment and I'm not dropping 500 (or even another 400) for just two games.

Fanboys grow up, people have tastes and the competition is a GOOD THING. Not sure what I can say on the matter other than I am excited to see what the XBone has to offer, even as a Playstation fan.

I cant wait to see what ms brings to E3. Its going to be a great show, below is Phils recent comment on twitter regarding what to expect at E3.

@StonecoldMC E3 planning is looking good, will have a lineup of new, announced, unannounced and hopefully unexpected.

"Unexpected" now thats what i want to see...

so what does the update offer? i just DL today i know i can brodcast now with twitch but what else does it do?
I was shock MS let me in the preview update program.
danthegamerfiend  +   238d ago
The update brought in a party system similarly to the xbox 360 but better. It doesnt involve having to jump to one screen and then having to turn on party chat manually. They have provided more options with inviting people in the party system. whether it is to game together or just party up and chat together. The friends list also has been revamped as well. They made getting to your friends list one click away versus three clicks. If you set up your favourites, it makes even easier to track them. I find overall the dashboard laggs less and there are more audio settings in the settings. For me these have been big changes and im glad the team is listening to us and making those changes.

I prefer Sony exclusives because imo there's more variety, more quantity and most importantly more quality. However, I'm not that much of a fanboy that I would bitterly say I'm not interested in MS games, unlike you.

I hope for you sake and other people that enjoy MS exclusives that MS doesn't drop support again half way through the generation to focus on the juicy casual pie.
Prime157  +   238d ago

There has to be many more x1 exclusives coming out based off of the above image.
itBourne  +   238d ago
That image never gets old lol. MS cannot support a consoles life span because they do not have 1st party devs. They buy a few exclusives early on in a console life span then it is done. It happened with the xbox, it happened with the 360, it will happen again.

My point is, why support a company that does not want to support you. I would rather support the company that gives me fucking amazing games all the way through, even 6 or 7 years into a console cycle (GoW 2, Last of US, jst to name a few in a late life span of a console).
FriedGoat  +   238d ago
That image is RIDICULOUS.
haha, I knew it was bad when I stopped playing my 360 but I didn't realise it was that bad. This just proves it.
itBourne  +   238d ago
You like MS exclusives over Sony? I am sincerely curious as to what exclusives you are talking about? Halo? Really old franchise and not made by the same people. Gears? Same thing, Epic and Bungie no longer doing either. Fable maybe? Rare, they are doing great things... I Really just cannot understand from a logical stand point your argument. Unless maybe you are a massive Forza fan, I am unsure as to what exclusives you speak of. Sunset Overdrive? Insomniac is a washed up dev, their last 5 games have been meh at best. I loved Insomniac, they fucked up and expanded way to quick, lost a lot of quality for quantity. Project Spark is the only exclusive remotely interesting, and I actually am thoroughly excited for, could be a massive ball of fun or a complete cluster fuck. Outside that though, I just do not see the talent from a first party developer stand point.
beerzombie  +   238d ago
The box is an online box to play multiplayer games. It always been that way and still the best place to play online games with dedicated servers. If you do not get it I understand, play by your self on the Ps4 and have a great day.
MELMAN26  +   238d ago
Watch this...You like the ps4 exclusives over the xb1's??? You mean killzone a boring 1st person shooter? knack? Seriously? oh wait are you talking about infamous, the rehashed game that has no character progression and is a downgrade from what was shown at E3, maybe you mean the order, a squad based game with no multiplayer that we know very little about??

Do you see how silly your response was??? I am looking forward to ALL of these games (xb1 and ps4), but it is easy to point out flaws for ANY game or developer. IMO the xb1 has better and more new next gen exclusives, but I am looking forward to The Order and Infamous, and whatever else the ps4 has to offer, when those games release.
itBourne  +   238d ago
I was not talking about launch games... We know MS can deliver exclusives the first year or two of a console, then what after that? They have no 1st party support. It happened with the xbox and the 360, it will continue to happen.

donnieboy  +   239d ago
Wizard_King  +   239d ago
I encourage any one who disagrees to tell me why?

I play DayZ and all the other mods a hell of a lot.

It take a modern quad core running at 3.2ghz or higher, steaming the install data from a 6gbps SSD and over 8 gig of RAM to run this game anywhere near playable.

BI (Bohemia Interactive) have been using the very same engine from Operation flashpoint to ARMA/2/3 much the same way the COD devs have. They simply keep modding the same old engine.

Having said that there is no way that either the ARMA 2 or AMRA 3 simulation engine could run on either next gen console and achieve above 10fps, they are simply to CPU heavy for the weak (yes I said it) laptop CPU's that exist in the XB1 and PS4. Not to mention that it take at least a 2 gig frame buffer on the GPU to be able to keep up with the amount of streaming texture data that the engine requires.

The control scheme is mad and nearly every key has a function or more, controls will never work.

It took BI 6 years to port the orgignal OpFlash to the first Xbox and that was cut down to hell and ran like poo.

BI have not ever bothered with building a new engine and the current engine has been in development for well over a decade and suffers from the same 32 bit limitations as Operation Flashpoint had in 2000. Due to this and that BI has shown no signs of new engine development I can conclude that DayZ will never make it to any console unless they start making a new DayZ engine for console (ground up) it will never happen. Last estimate from BI regarding porting the current engine to 64 bit was something in the line of 5-7 years.

Like I said earlier if BI gets Dean working on a console exclusive game with a different game engine then anything is possible.

But DayZ as we know and love even the standalone will never grace any console MARK MY WORDS!

If you think it will please explain to me why you think this, when every logical sign says it never will and isn't technically possible.

EDIT at those guys above. KRIBWALKER

I have a very low opinion of most console games as they pander to the lowest common denominator games like Killzone I thought was boring, I don't even know what Knack is and I only have COD4 on PC... The way it was ment to be played.

EDIT 2 at everyone above.

So I think those games are shit and that makes me a Sony defense force troll? Please suck me of you children, just because I think MS's offering is mediocre at best doesn't mean I am a Sony fan either, at this point the PS4's range of games is laughable at best.

i dont even know why you posted the hardware. arma3 is a beast to max but, console gamers would praise it even if it run on med that just what they do. i do agree on the controls tho. too many keys to be on consoles to give you the edge and right control over your char. the last game i could think of that give you close to the control over your char is socom cf ps3 and it only had the lean aspect. great game dont know why everyone hated it.

the thing is to put dayz or even arma on consoles would equal dumb it down. you either swim or sink. people will help you but if your not trying they will help or watch you drown.

We'll see come GDC / E3. DayZ has been rumored for PS4 by the devs. quite a while too, but they've been quite since expressing wanting to develop the game for the platform.

I don't think Day Z is a console type game based on what the majority of console games buy even excluding the huge sellers like GTA / COD / BF / AC / etc... It's an unforgiving game, and if it makes it to console I see it with a niche audience.

What sort of insider knowledge do you have on this matter? Considering the developer of the game just returned from meeting with Microsoft and Sony to discuss it going to console and has said the decision will be made before the end of 2014.

If the developer doesn't know if it's going to console, how do you?

The article sure seems to indicate that it'd be coming to the Xbox in some form....and I'm sure the PS4 as well.

It may not meet the master race technical specs you so freely spouted nor may it be an exact port but it's coming.

Dean Hall said he can't share details....If nothing was cooking why would he say that...just say 'no comment', 'not happening'.
Prime157  +   238d ago
I agree as he said, "He explained that a decision about a console version of DayZ is likely to be made by the end of 2014. He made clear that a console iteration of the zombie game is not in development right now, and if it does get green-lit, it will probably take 12 months to create a console version."

If it takes them 10 months to decide and 12 to port, it will be too late.
iistuii  +   238d ago
@wizard you go about the Arma engine & how it wouldn't work on consoles & your right. But it's not the consoles, it's the engine that even for a top gaming PC it's unoptimized. It's been plagued with problems for years & many people not being able to get a steady framerate. Agree the engine wouldn't work on consoles, but the engine is the problem.

Sounds great, a lot of these Devs keep saying great things about XB1 lately...it's nice to see things looking up for the next gen consoles (which btw, we seem to have overlooked how smooth this gen's launch has gone...no major issues for ANY console). In a way though I wish he didn't tease this, cause now it's driving me a little nuts wondering what got a Dev so excited...is it something cloud based? Or is he getting familiar with DX 11.2 tiled resources? That could make transferring a PC game to console REALLY easy...and if he seems to think that it'll hit consoles by the end of 2014.... who knows, I don't have a crystal ball, but I wish I did.

Yeah right...You don't have a PS4 at all....that is why your biased preference shines through like a blinding fanboy light.... I own a PS4, & I'm pretty sure I'm enjoying KZ:SF, Outlast, DC, Warframe, Warthunder, Resogun......The difference is, that I got many of these for free, as they are downloadable titles,...and fact is, Dead Rising, Killer Instinct & even Forza are stripped back version of there predecessors & should be free downloadable games..lol. I'm even enjoying Knack...some may laugh, but they are the same dopes that are playing Ryse & trying to palm it off as some AAA+ game that was hard done by, by reviewers.

It seems you MS fanboys all of a sudden are excited about downloadable titles like Day-Z, whilst your last breath was shunning PS4 for getting downloadable & indie games in abundance.....It seems all fanboys are as big a hypocritical arses as one another....I notice this same guy also mentioned Titanfall & Project Spark, whilst failing to mention Infamous:SS & Driveclub as on the verge of release for PS4.....
To keep it balanced, neither system has the touted, "system seller" as of yet....and fact is, Sony's machines traditional have a myriad of "system sellers", whilst MS usually has 3-4 at most.....Xbox Original actually really only had Halo as an actual system seller (not saying it didn't have other great titles, just that ONE game was renowned for moving machines).... So, just forget your, "I own both systems" crap, as it becomes unraveled when you start carrying on that one is a dust collector, & has been for months, when the systems have only been out for that barely 3-4 months...lol.
