The Guardian "Respawn Entertainment is days away from launching its hugely anticipated sci-fi shooter. We talk to programmer Jon Shiring about the technical revolution going on in the background"
Great article. I can name a few people on this site who need to read this so we don't have to hear their "TEH CLOUDZ!!!" comments again >_>
Maybe people wouldn't keep talking about "TEH CLOUDZ!!!" if Microsoft and devs like Respawn would shut up about it...
You could always, you know, ignore the stories. You seem to be on every Xbox One thread, why do you torture yourself like this?
lol...every Xbox article I'm on a variety of articles....it's N4G Why cherry pick to try and have a counter argument because your p****** off over what I've just said.
lots of downplaying of Titanfall in these parts lol, i played the beta on Xbox One and it looked and ran smooth so relax kiddies
Compared to what?
You must have done a rock. The beta was dog shit rough.
I've seen this comment like 3 times now.
whatever makes you sleep better at night "bro"
Just because it LOOKS nice and runs smooth, doesn't mean it's a good game. Simple controls with no depth to them, no brain function required to play, and very repetitive = very bland game.
Agreed very nice read. Still waiting to see it run real code phil spencer said he wants to show it running real code make it happen at e3 or shoosh
To put the n4g title into context, the title of the guardian article is :"Titanfall takes aim at the cloud: 'We’ve really let the designers go crazy" edit: The excerpt of the n4g title seems to be referring to, the third allinea, pushing (testing) the scaling between different data centres to breaking point during the beta.
heh, 792p is near the XB1's breaking point, on a game running a modified last-gen engine. good hardware design MS... i'm getting this on the PC...
Good choice, Single figure frames per second lmao.
Yet you saw Ryse so clearly that's not true.
Maybe Respawn is pushing the Source engine to its limit. That must be it.
Ryse sure was sexy! why did respawn use such an old engine new engines would benifit more even running at 720
Ryse dropped to as low as 14 fps or something like that in the digital foundry test. And it was downgraded as well during development. It was also a linear hack and slash devoid of any value in actually playing the game.
I wouldn't care what resolution Xbox ONE is running the game at if I really had a gaming PC, especially if I'm accustomed to gaming at 'full HD' and luxurious framerates. Just sayin' Respawn should hire from N4G. . we seem to know better than they do at game development.
I joined the glorious master race back in Nov. I got an incredible black friday deal (which I still think had to be a mistake)32gram, 5.0GhzCPU,(2)R9/290, 4TB HDD, water cooled, 850w, and 4 free new games for $1500. The problem is I still have to get a PS4. Sony doesn't port their AAA games very often. And I end up with dozens of Steam deal on games I'll probably never get to. I'm way too impulsive. But go for it. It's so worth it! I'm kicking myself now for not having done it sooner.
@jdiggitty I was being sarcastic. It just funny that most of these clowns happen to own gaming PCs whenever a game is console exclusive. I already have a gaming PC. I refrain from jumping on every sale 'cause there's hardly time to play these days. Steam has to be the worst(in a good way) ... Just got deus ex on psn for 12euro just so I can dual screen with the vita. My PC ain't overkill tho' she's decent and plays the games I want.
Titanfall on xbone is like trying to break the sound barrier on a hand glider!
Now, now Rinkuchal......ok your right about ever word you said especially the "good hardware design MS"! After all it's a Cable Box....A CABLE BOX that can play TITANFALL! The only cable box in the world that can play Titanfall. So when Respawn says "We're pushing everything to breaking point".......they mean it!
And bf4 is 900p on ps4, both these systems are garbage, dont act like ps4 is some beast, with a weak cpu, bf4 is the only game pushing these systems hard and they both can not do full res and 60fps. Albeit ps4 is stronger but not by much, i see ps4 taking short cuts to achieve 1080 same with xb1. I got both systems with some of the same multiplats on both. They are both weak
well, that's what you get for buying PC games for consoles... my XB1, PS4 and Wii U are for exclusives...
PC Elitist in a nutshell. Calling anything that is not a PC garbage. You fail to see why consoles even exist, instead its about PC elitist justifying being a PC gamer.
You Sony kids are so retarded it's not worth replying to anymore.
Traitor! TRAITOR! /s
Source Engine 1 with no destruction or much in physics is pushing to the breaking point? Is that one of the guys that worked at IW before with their old CoD engine?
Can't wait to see what Source 2 will bring
They aren't talking about the graphics but what they are doing with the cloud service. Also the game doesn't need much destruction, if had destruction like Battlefield then maps would be cleared out within minutes from the Titans. All the maps are closed off and to small for that.
I'm getting this on PC, it reminds me a bit of unreal tournament with all those side step, double jump and wall ride. I like the pace too! I would have loved it on my PS4, but not being on my console of choice won't stop me from playing this game :)
Yeah pushing it on Xbone to kae it look prettier. PC version will pound xbone verssion. i don't get why people will buy a bone just to play this. you can build a powerful PC for also $500 and can have a high settings for titanfall.
Respawn considering patching 1080p support into Xbox One Titanfall. "We're likely to increase resolution after we ship," says Respawn. http://www.videogamer.com/x... On this side (N4 PS gamer's) only PS4 positive news may appear, sad, and that's ridiculous. Edit: And a lot are the lie. Incredulous and biased shit, thank's for the much droid.
TBH, can't see why this game can't do 1080p? The graphics are average to say the least, I played the beta on PC, thought it looked like a last gen game and that was on my high end rig. Anyway, not my cup of tea, just another generic MP shooter, it's good but not brilliant. @gamer40 Are you drunk or something, I really didn't understand a single word you just typed. What has this gotta do with PS4 anyway? I didn't mention PS4 at all, jeez, you fanboys are a paranoid bunch. Butt hurt much.........
All only PS4 fan's envious, simply because he did not come to favourite "miracle machine" this game. Onto which till now a piece of shit (Knack) and a medium exclusive game available (KZSF). From this direction there are a word, nothing from something else.
/\ I looked up "Butthurt" in the dictionary and it had a picture of Gamer-40.
Yea that's a little far fetched a game running at 792P struggling to keep its FPS at 60 is not about to nearly doubly the res.That's just not gonna happen.
It's impossible for them to do a patch and go from 792p to 1080p. It won't ever happen.
796p in 6 months, believe.
So 6v6, bunch of stupid AI, cloud servers that aren't doing a lick but improving latency that aren't wide spread enough for everyone to even play this game with a Xbox One and some odd ball resolution of 792p is the breaking point for the Xbox One.. On a modified but old source engine.. Balance my freaking ass already.. Always balance with the Xbox One when what they really mean is cut backs. Game is still struggling.. Which is being reported by numerous sites already and that is the breaking point, they can't be serious because that would be absolutely terrible if it were true. Good thing it is also on PC.. Anyone with a brain knows the better alternative here, unless all you have is a Xbox One but I find that hard to believe these days.. If you can afford an Xbox One chances are you already have a gaming PC.
I think it being on the source engine IS why it is not 1080p. Don't act like the x1 can't put out decent graphics. Battlefield looks good (even though it looks a little better on PS4 and much better on PC) and it is much more challenging graphically than titanfall. Maybe the fact that they took an old engine and modified it so much means that it isn't properly optimized to run at 1080p on the x1. To act like the x1 is not capable of running something simple is ridiculous because we have already seen it do more. It doesn't look a million times better on the PC either. Sure it will look better but no one will look at the game and say, "Wow... I had no idea this was possible in video games" regardless of how nice your PC is... keep acting like its such a big deal if you want but it sounds stupid
Real fun game. I can do with less bots and more human players. They do provide a lot action as there's a lot of them around for you to shoot at. It just feels more satisfying out shooting someone and especially in this game, out maneuvering someone with some fancy footwork. I wouldn't buy a console for it or pay full price for the title. Thankfully I got a PC and snagged it for $33!
$33? How'd you swing that? I'd get it for the PC but I'm not paying $60.
Google "Titafall YuPlay". Top result should be slickdeals forum. I bought it using chrome as it auto translates the russian store and I used paypal. It works, I bought 2 extra copies myself in the past 16hrs. I assume the deal ends when the game launches.
Good interview. Pretty much sums up why I got the console. I'm not developing the games that can take advantage of these possibilities, but I will be enjoying the fruits of it.
"breaking point" Does the thought of TF RRODing XB360s come to mind with anyone else?
HAHA so stuff happening in the background of maps is new & only because of the cloud now? Even with the cloud doing this processing it still cannot increase performance to allow any improvement on resolution. PR talk - "Lets remove dedicated servers & we'll introduce it in a years time under the new monocle of 'The Cloud' & we can make them pay for it" "That's an awesome idea but they're not that stupid they'll never fall for it" "Have you listened to some people lately.....believe me it'll work on at least some people then we can leave it to them to battle it out amongst themselves" "Lets do it! (insert evil laugh!) Yep great PR work by both Respawn & Microsoft it seems! ...and people are reading this & thinking it's good news.....Delusional!
Vrumm,Vrumm..watch out breaking point ahead!
I guess this proves the cloud doesn't help that much. They're pushing the Xbox One as hard as they can and still can't get 1080p graphics. So the one big problem the Xbox One has can't be helped by using the cloud. Which everyone should have known anyway. Internet connections are way too slow.
if titanfall is maxxing out the xone then im gonna second guess my purchase.
All this cloud talk and the game isn't even 800p lol. Pc does 1440p without The CloUD. Weird right?
792p and frame rate drops only possible with teh powaah of teh cloud!!!
The game is having frame rate drops at 792p resolution a d people believe they will upgrade it to 1080p. I dont get it, didn't resolution mattered? One day these fanboys say resolution doesn't matter and the other they are saying hey look it will be updated to 1080p. This is proof that all those hypocrites saying resolution doesn't matter are liars just trying to justify a weak console.
