Is there a reason why Nintendo believes that the properties "variety" and "high performance" are mutually exclusive?

If their consoles are flukes because of the gimmicks they incorporate into them (therefore making their sales luck rather than based on performance), then how is the most logical solution to make *another* console that rides on features not required to play games well?

The problem that Microsoft is facing right now is that their advertising was misleading in regards to the scope of games that would run at native 4k. Never in their marketing did they indicate that some games will run at native 4k and other games won't. What they said (in paraphrasing) was that they would have a machine that will play games at an uncompromising native 4k resolution, which is a vague statement and is what Microsoft is being called out on on websit...

'"What a stupid move for gamers. Why would you want to let them more accurately and proudly represent themselves online?"'

Lol this isn't a quote from anyone. Last time I checked, games push gaming in the right direction, not avatars.

It's not about what's smart, it's about what level of trust you have in your partnering publishers. I'm sure Sony expected EA to hand them something better than this.

So it's a hassle to upgrade your PC, but not your console? You don't *have* to upgrade your PC on a yearly basis just as you don't *have* to upgrade your console on a yearly basis. Games will still run just fine on PC hardware that is 5 years old.

The only reason a console lasts that long and plays every game that comes out on it at the same settings is because developers *have* to make their games work on limited hardware. But just because developers aren't...

The video has been removed from public viewing which gives us enough information to make a reasonable judgment regarding what might have happened:

1. EA made the video and gave it to Sony.
2. Sony uploaded the video without noticing the photo-shopped image because:
--a) they have a lot of videos to upload
--b) they expect that EA wouldn't hand them something half-assed requiring them to carefully watch it.
3. Sony removed the video af...

What's fair and not fair is irrelevant. If it's "console exclusive" - regardless of the console that it's on - then it's not *actually* exclusive.

I agree, with MS changing their policies so that all Xbox games are on PC, I'll just stick with my PC.


The article is regarding the game as being a reason to buy the console. Thekhurg brought his point up because if you already have a PC capable of playing these games, then Crackdown 3 isn't necessarily a console seller since you can get the game elsewhere.

Just download more RAM from the switch store, should get it to 60 FPS.

17 million units by 2021 equals to 5.66 million units a year if we're starting with the beginning of 2018 (if not, then it's less than 5.66m), which isn't saying much. I think Microsoft would find it worrying if they couldn't keep that up.

The phrase "console exclusive" literally means "Can be played on multiple platforms of hardware except for 'X', where 'X' = any hardware that cannot play the game.

If you can't say that it's exclusive to PC, then you can't say it's exclusive to consoles. The same game running on different platforms of hardware is considered inclusive or partially inclusive.

Random philosophical side note about video game excl...

The androids were neat, but I wish they would have had more variety in their models. You have rolling droid, small droid, big droid and flying droid. I found myself having trouble motivating myself to get to the Swarm because it just felt like the android bit never ended.

But it's... not a beast. It's less powerful than a GTX 1070 and has a processor clocked at 2.3 GHz. That's not beast status at all.

"With an Xbox version to follow" is a statement catered too heavily towards guaranteeing an Xbox release. At the most, he could have stated "we'll see how the game does and later there might actually be an Xbox release"... which is essentially what he said.

Lol what?

If you had a PC that had 16 GB of DDR4 and a GTX 1070, you would have a far more powerful device than an XBX. First of all, a GTX 1070 has 6.5 teraflops, not 6 teraflops. Furthermore, the card itself has 8 GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory and then you're adding another 16 GB of DDR4 which is far more memory than the XBX.

Also, the XBX has a processor clocked at 2.3 GHz, and if anyone is building a PC, pretty much any processor at this point is a...

Hearing the news regarding the PC version was wonderful.

Like I said, there will be compromises. No console can run a game on high settings/4K/60 FPS unless the game itself uses little resources (2.5D platformers for instance).

Having a lower resolution so as to grant higher performance settings and 60 FPS is probably better than a 4K resolution that has the detail of its image compromised due to bottlenecking. Yes, it will be a higher resolution, but the level of detail will be low. It's a bad example since we're talking...
