That 4/10 score was satire, so in this case, it should be removed from metacritics. The real review was also posted in washington post which was more like 8-9/10, but somehow the one that went on metacritics is 4/10.
#1 Powerful hardware.
Which at this point is basically a given, since they can't go less than at least the XBone in power or they'll lose any shot they have at the NX selling.
Not a given, sorry, but if anything it's the opposite, it's a given it will be underpowered. Gimmick controller costing like 150-200$ by itself, cartbridge instead of disc (which cost more money) and the fact said it will be profitable means it's gonna be less powerful, wh...
"They've become a bunch of entitled, selfish, greedy pricks that blame console makers [and get their apologists to do the same] for their mistakes when developing their own games."
So it's their fault that Nintendo made an inferior console that people didn't want to buy, so they should work harder to make a version specific to that console (which would require extra work) and lose money in the process?
The game was made for 30 fps in mind. It's just a port, they'd had to rework a lot of it to make it work at 60fps and they simply won't bother for a port.
Modders will do it, but it never works out well. Tales of Zesteria was locked 30fps because the game was made that way and modders unlocked it, but really, it wasn't actual 60fps, they just doubled the speed of everything.
The fact that it's supposed to be profitable at launch, will use a 100-200$ controller and supposedly cartbridges, it means the rest of the console is gonna be cheap, which means it's gonna be less powerful than PS4 and X1.
Time for a change? Don't fix what isn't broken. Nintendo keeps trying to innovate and it bit them in the *** with the Wii U and it will again with the NX.
Apparently, the GTX 1070 is on par with the 980 ti, if not better as well.
Knowing amazon.ca, mine won't ship early and I bet they will wednesday or thursday. Their service has really been degrading over the years. They used to ship on release day via ups and I would get it the next day. Then they switch to the inferior canada post and I get it 2-3 days later. Now they don't even have the decency to ship on release day.
Only reason I am keeping my preorder is because I preordered when it was 59.99 when the dollar was still strong, otherwis...
The storm they believe in is gonna turn out to be a little breeze you feel for 1 second. NX less powerful than PS4 and Xbox One with another weird controller no one wants.
I played the beta and i think it was pretty bad. Definitely not as good as Megaman/Megaman X or Azure Striker Gunvolt.
Games won't be at 60fps. They will just have better visuals and still run at 30fps. Why don't people realize developers will prioritize visuals over framerate most of the time because it's what sell.
Definitely not gonna happen. Blame the theme song for that. All PS4 games have to be digital and the theme song from utada hikaru doesn't include contract for a digital version and they won't rework such contract, would likely cost more money than they'd make. I didn't include Xbox One above because the previous games won't release on Xbox ever.
Also, they obviously included digital in the contract for KH3 (the reason they didn't for previous games i...
Pretty safe to assume it's gonna be an underpowered system compared to the competition with yet again another controller no one wants.
I am pretty sure people stopped taking Nintendo seriously after the n64 or gamecube.
They need to focus on portable, because they don't have what it takes to make a consoles anymore. Speaking of portable, it's about time to announce a successor to the 3DS, it's really outdated (I am not talking about new 3d...
Ratchet and Clank is already released at the time of this video, so it's not coming, doesn't belong there.
Microsoft will never beat Sony ever again. They only had the lead with the 360 because it released a year earlier and at a lower price, plus their number was inflated because of all those RRoD.
In the end, the PS3 outsold it worldwide the moment it came out and the PS3 finished in second place worldwide behind the Wii.
@mark_parch except they don't have the best console exclusives either. Sony has them beaten in that department and so does Nintendo.
Sony will destroy them at E3 again this year.
It won't. PS4.5/4K is just gonna be a PS4 with an upgraded hdmi port and bigger hard drive. It won't have a better cpu or gpu, it's just gonna be able to play 4K movies.
Yes, 4K gaming in a console is currently impossible to achieve even at 30fps. They use mobile hardware and the mobile versions of that hardware for 4K either doesn't exist or cost too much for the PS4K to cost anything below 1500$. The video card needed for this would cost more than the PS4 itself does.
A good idea would be to add ps3 chip in there for ps3 bc. I doubt it would cost much to add this point.
For this price, there is no way it's gonna be able to play games at 4K. Maybe if you tripled that price, they could make a machine powerful enough to, but at 500$ the most you're gonna get is the possibility to play 4K videos and maybe a bigger hard drive. You won't get extra cpu and gpu power. 4K at this point is still a luxury even on PC, I also doubt mobile parts for consoles exist that would make 4K possible.
