Reading between the lines:
XXO = 1920 x 1080 x 30 fps = 62 million pixels pushed per second.
PS4 = 1600 x 900 x 60 fps = 86 million pixels pushed per second.
PS4 could easily run at 1080p30 if it wanted to. But could the XBO run it at 900p60? If the developers prioritize framerate to get it at 60fps, then that's what they did. But it sounds like they'd have to go to about 765p in order to get 60fps on the XBO (765p60 being about 62 mil...
I was worried as hell when I saw the headline, but 6 weeks or so isn't so bad. Anything they gotta do to make the best game they can make! I can wait a couple weeks. I was worried this game was going back into limbo and we'd never see it. But they gave us another actual release date. So this is similar to Naughty Dog pushing back Uncharted 4, but still giving us an exact release date while announcing the delay. That game turned out to be amazing, so here's hoping this one do...
I mean, I agree it's weird and when Microsoft announced it I had serious reservations about it (Scorpio). Now that Sony has essentially announced the same thing, I have no fear that developers will figure out what they're doing with this concept. Both Microsoft and Sony are doing the same thing. Sony is just launching a year earlier!
And in hindsight, I've come to realize, developers have been doing this *FOREVER* with their PC games. What PC game doesn'...
Holy freaking crap Horizon looks *good*. Really, really good. I can't freaking wait for that game!
Ooh, cool! I would love to play some amazing PS3 games on my laptop :)
Love this game. It's my game of the year still, although Dark Souls 3 is a close second.
For me, they are about equal. Talos Principle and The Witness are the two best games of the generation for me. I love them both. They're each completely different from each other, and yet remarkably similar in their themes and execution, but the puzzles themselves are not even remotely similar. I found both games to be mindblowing and impressive, not to mention lots of fun. I give extra credit to The Witness for having quite possibly the most impeccably designed game world in the his...
For me, it's like this:
1) The Witness
2) Dark Souls 3
3) Uncharted 4
Love all 3 immensely!
I agree with you complete, -Foxtrot. I have stopped by digital games on Playstation because I am pissed off at how many games I bought from the PS3 store that are now completely unplayable on PS4, when there is really no damn reason that many of them couldn't be, particularly the PSone classics.
Quote from the article: "To highlight the dominance of Steam; 2016’s Rise of the Tomb Raider reportedly sold 98% of its PC copies through Steam compared to a miserable 2% share for Microsoft’s Windows 10 Store. That’s not a dominance, that’s a monopoly."
No, you used the correct word the first time. It's a dominance, not a monopoly. A monopoly would mean that the game is not available on any other marketplace. It IS. It's just that Steam dominates the ...
For me it's probably something like this, though I love all 5 games:
Demon's Souls > Dark Souls = Bloodborne > Dark Souls 3 > Dark Souls 2, and the distance between 3 and 2 is not that significant, while the distance between Demon's Souls and Dark Souls / Bloodborne is massive for me. Demon's Souls is a game I imported when there was supposedly no chance it would ever come out in the West. I platinum'd the game before Atlus ever announced it w...
Don't forget Team Fortress 3!
Seriously? Is it really that bad? None of the other reviews are nearly that low.
I was under the impression that Humble Bundle keys came with the caveat that they can't be resold, so if they are buying keys from Humble Bundle on the cheap and reselling them, doesn't that break the Humble Bundle terms?
I am the kind of person that doesn't judge these sorts of things based on the name. Does it look like Resident Evil? Not really, particularly not like the RE we've seen since around Resident Evil 4 (perhaps even RE3 which was more action-oriented, though Code Veronica was released after that and went back to more survival horror roots). But I love games like Outlast and Amnesia and Soma, and this looks like it'll be a downright scary, awesome game, and that's really all tha...
@feju: (quote) "The new XBOS sure looks eyegasmic, attractive price too." (unquote)
Attractive price? I don't recall them giving a price.
I'm just confused about this and the Neo and what the goal really is. I mean, eventually there will have to devs who want to make a game specifically for the power of the newer console and release a dame that doesn't come out for the Xbox One / PS4, and when that happens, don't we have a "new generation"? I just don't get how this is a good thing. If you want an evolving experience with jumps every year or two, I don't understand why you wouldn't just hav...
"Microsoft's PC game releases on the Windows Store haven't all gone too well, Spencer admitted.
"They all haven't gone swimmingly. Some of them have gone well," he explained. "Forza 6 Apex did well. Quantum Break wasn't our best PC release. Killer Instinct did well on PC. Gears of War Ultimate Edition was OK--we definitely learned there.""
So the two that you can download for free did well? That's not all...
To be honest, the whole concept of what these companies are doing with these more powerful versions that are supposedly not next-gen, it makes no sense to me. I'm really struggling. As far as Sony goes, I'm not even sure what they're doing. What is the Neo? When is it coming?
Is the Neo more like the Scorpio or more like the Xbox One S? If it's like the Scorpio, then what that says to me is that we're getting the the 9th gen coming sooner than a c...
I don't really get the vision for this or for the Scorpio. I'm really struggling to understand.
