6) it will play best on the xbox onex

Lime123151d ago

And the worst on Xbox One S which majority of Xbox One owners will have

Kribwalker151d ago (Edited 151d ago )

i don’t care about the oneS, ii got my preorder paid for waiting for pick up in just over 2 weeks

MVGeneral150d ago (Edited 150d ago )

7. Nintendo will... oh yeah the switch can't handle it.

NoPeace_Walker150d ago (Edited 150d ago )

You guys can spin all you want but it still doesn't change the fact that it is best play on console on XB1X... just like every future big third party AAA titles from now on like Red Dead Redemption 2 and old titles like the Witcher 3. My XB1X scorpio edition is ready in two weeks, can't wait to feel true power.

UltraNova149d ago


Man you've just convinced me to throw my Pro away...I mean whats the damn point anymore when I know now that the X will play 3rd party games 10% better.

Dang it...i'm already watching my hopes and dreams circling down the drain... is unfair.

guyman149d ago (Edited 149d ago )

"I dont çare about one s"
So you admit you dont care for your favourite console?

Black0ut149d ago


Well TBH, with the way you guys have all been chasing Xbox news and downplaying, it's evident that you're more obsessed with the brand than he is...Just sayin' mang.

Right... I just enjoy calling fanboy bullshit

Mehmeh149d ago


So what about his comment is such fanboy bullshit?
That he is excited to get the new OneX and therefore doesn't care as much about the performance of the OneS ?
Why is that fanboy and/or bullshit?

I usually am like that about any type of hardware i buy. Whenever Ive bought a new (insert electronic device)- i tend to care less about my previous whatever that i had before.

Razzer149d ago

Xbox fans are pretending the S doesn't exist anymore.

nX149d ago

lmao at Xbox diehards still claiming bullshit

None of these mediocre third party games will ever play best on your Xbox as long as my PC easily doubles your X performance.

Mehmeh149d ago


I dont feel targeted by your comment as i dont see myself as a diehard fan of any brand. (Maybe Apple lol but that has more to do with work).

But I do find it funny that PC gets factored in/out whenever it suits people the best:)

Wrong. PC will play it the best 😊

ShottyatLaw151d ago

This is wary of that PC release.

ninsigma150d ago

What does that have to do with kribs initial comment??

SinisterKieran150d ago

i will they that the article does mention how bad unity was on pc but even though it was bad, it still ran better then it did on console.

Tallpine149d ago (Edited 149d ago )

Wasn't it AC Unity (maybe syndicate) that was unplayable on pc when it launched? Game won't launch, invisible heads and body parts, floating eyes and such?

starchild149d ago

Oh jeez. Unity was completely playable on PC from day one. A little buggy just like the console versions but nothing game breaking in the slightest. And it always looked and ran better on the PC than on consoles.

ninsigma151d ago

Interesting. One thing I take is that other than the FPS it's fine and doesn't have the ridiculous glitches that unity had (assumption based on the fact he never mentioned anything crazy).

Sub 30FPS is worrying, but the article was written a month ago and we don't know at what point that demo was built from. As well we know they have dedicated teams to testing the PC version so I'm sure it'll be fixed. It's why I don't like buying PC games day one just in case they ARE a mess.

Genuine-User150d ago (Edited 150d ago )

You've got issues Krib. Give it a rest already lol

You have repeated the same thing in so many articles, don't you get tired?

gangsta_red150d ago

"don't you get tired?"

Obviously not, the real question is why does this upset you so much?

RememberThe357150d ago

Dude doesn't seem too upset to me Black Falcon. I mean Red Ranger. Krib is just got a one track comment history, some variation wouldn't hurt. He's like a less butthurt Moldy.

Genuine-User150d ago

Your question is based on a false assumption.

Spam is annoying from both sides of the pond.

NoPeace_Walker150d ago (Edited 150d ago )

How is he repeating the same thing when what he posted is pertaining to AC Origin, a different game than Shadow of War. He is a console gamer so of course he is just talking about on console. Is there any doubt this game will be best play on the XB1X on console?

Kribwalker150d ago

possibly but so far they have said the xbox version is better

DrumBeat150d ago

True. The PS4 isn't as powerful.

Cupofjoe149d ago

Uh wrong again itll be 30fps on x like every other console will play best at native 4k 60 on pc. There u go thats all

OffRoadKing149d ago

Oh man so close you almost sold me one and then I remembered its fan base is filled with people like you, no sale!

Dragonscale149d ago

7) It will sell best on PS4. It may look a little better on scorpio but won't play any differently to the other versions as its the same game fgs.

MegamanXXX149d ago

6) it will play best on the PC. Fix it for you

mogwaii149d ago

How will it play better?

ninsigma151d ago

No more one hit assassinations!? God damn, I was doing that a lot in syndicate as a level 4 sneaking up on people in level 9 zones xD Guess the levelling will need to take a big priority in origins.

The skill trees look like a good improvement over syndicate. More variety and chance to customise the way you want.

Gh05t150d ago (Edited 150d ago )

I dont know how I feel about that. I dont care how strong a person is if you got the sneak on them you could kill them... To me that actually kind of ruins a lot of what the game is for me. We will have to see to what extent they are talking here. Taking the silent kill from hidden positions (hay piles, tall grass, carts...) away seems like a huge leap. I will wait until I play it before I say whether it was a terrible move or not for me.

This is the first piece of news that has me worried though.

RememberThe357150d ago

They're trying too hard to turn AC into Witcher 3.

ninsigma150d ago

Yeah it's certainly something that I'm think I wish they hadn't changed but at the same time I don't know how that change balances out with everything else, so like you I'll wait to make my judgement.

Gh05t150d ago


I really hope they are not... We already have Witcher for that. I own all the Witcher games and I really couldn't get into any of them. I am not saying they are bad games, just didn't pull me in.

smolinsk149d ago

Then why keep buying the games if you don't really like them? Wierd..

Gh05t149d ago

Because I want to like them, and have given them all a chance.

DaMist150d ago (Edited 150d ago )

Will it have HDR on PC? I've tweeted them, asking them, but never got a reply :(

DaGreatOne150d ago

See some good and bad things here. Gonna miss one hit stealth kills but like the no loading screens.

Summons75150d ago

This doesn't even sound like an Assassin/stealth game anymore. That's what makes being a stealthy assassin so great. Sneak up, kill, leave before the body drops to the ground.
