Good to hear from a noteworthy developer in the industry, excited for the future of XB1

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you proof of how inept a portion of the N4G community is. Blinded by their biases and loyalty to a corporation that wouldn't pee on them if they were on fire. Just to make a pathetic effort to dismiss any positive comment regarding the console their sole tells them must be destroyed.

Clearly I am speaking of the 8 disagrees with TheGreatGamer's comment.

The audacity of people to poo-poo on a comment so simple, genuine, and innocent. That would be like the comment "I like pizza" in a thread about pizza getting several disagrees. We would all know the underlying Calzone and stromboli lobbyists were behind such dislikes.

Why do we keep having to hear about an API? This strikes me as odd. Clearly MS is fighting a perception of being less powerful and it is hurting sales. But at this point let's just see the real world benefits. All this 'future so bright I gotta wear shades" talk is potentially snakeoil. If you like X1 then buy it on it's merits today not what is promised but not delivered for the future.

"given that there are so many conflicting views regarding the impact of DirectX 12 on Xbox One"

There are a lot more views that DX12 will impact the Xbox One than anything else. It will be interesting to see what it can do for games made with it on the Xbox One.

Not surprising. Just take a look at Fable, that game looks amazing and it isnt even built ground up with DX12.. i'm happy Rare will be using UE4 for one of their unannounced projects. Cant wait.

Bigpappy1280d ago (Edited 1280d ago )

I noticed that too. I think a lot of people are going to shocked at how great Fable: L'gs looks at E3. In fact all the first party games and Tomb Raider will be very aesthetically pleasing.

@crazychris4124: One would assume "We all know its going to get a boost", but here on N4G, some seemingly prefer the head in the sand ass in the air approach to any positives for Xbox one.

@ christocolus

A big part of me hopes that unannounced game from rare is perfect dark. I really miss that game and would love to get one for this gen.

gangsta_red1280d ago


I know a lot of people are expecting a new Banjo game from Rare but I really hope it's not Banjo. A new game or even a new Perfect Dark would make me dance through the streets.

@Vega & Gangsta

Perfect Dark would be awesome. but i actually want a new ip. They are working on multiple projects at the moment so all our wishes could come true.

@ gangsta_red

I don't know about dancing in the street. Although that would be know what. The hell with it. I would do a jig if it did happen.

@ christocolus

You could be right. I just cant wait til monday to find out what they are up to.

Hopefully at E3 we finally get some solid info on DX 12 and X1. We all know its going to get a boost, how much of a boost is the billion dollar question.

Let's just end this rhetoric and make good games devs. More pixels does not make a game automatically great, or even good. You have more power to work with, good, now just focus on the core experiences.
