Yeah this seems like nonsense and I'm not sure it is something MS should be bragging about.

"Hey dudes! Forza 5 is so advanced, it wouldn't be able to do 60fps, 1080p without the Xbox Cloud"

Customer: "Uhhh, so you're saying that if I'm offline, I won't be able to do 60fps, 1080p?"

"Wait, no. No what I meant is that we gutted the game, put all the info on the cloud, and that let us use the local di...

The delicious, delicious irony is how "IMPORTANT" resolution and framerate were when it came to PS3 vs 360 on Crytek's previous games, like Crysis 2. Fanboys flew into a tizzy after it was revealed that the PS3 version had a lower resolution.

Oh, but NOW resolution doesn't matter, Crytek? Yeah...

I guess I can leave my doors unlocked at night. That burglar who tried to break in 5 nights in a row last week told me we was sorry and he wouldn't do it again.

He seemed really sincere.

Resolution just doesn't

But "back then" apparently it meant the whole world.

I love how things have flip-flopped as we move into next gen. Surely I'm not the only one who remembers "better grass in Mafia II on 360!!!" or "better water in RDR on 360!!!" or "better framerate in GTA4 on 360!!!" or "better draw distance in Skyrim on 360!!!" and all of the other countless comparisons (especially the ones done on Digital Foundry).

But now?

Oh, none of that stuff matters. Framerate doesn't matt...

Not a fan of Steam, personally.

But what this last year has revealed is that when a company acts shady for so long, eventually it will catch up with you. Some people like myself who've watched Microsoft since the days of MS-DOS stayed wary of the XBox brand and didn't trust Microsoft (and yet I was there Day One for XBox and XBox 360, but my second RRoD was too much).

Xbox One wasn't an "ooops! We were accidentally evil! Sorry. We'll fix ...

Is this really a big surprise to ANYONE (except paid shills and devotees)? Not only is the Playstation brand more popular, but the PS4 is cheaper, it will be launching in more countries, and I don't know where YOU folks have been over the last year (actually, the last several years beginning with the Project Natal announcement), but Microsoft hasn't exactly been Mr. Popular lately.

Certain gamers see this and cringe, but let's be serious. Microsoft hasn't brought anything significant to the gaming industry as a whole. They've simply...well, they've simply done what Microsoft does best:

They've bought and aped everything the Xbox brand has. To see them go would simply make room for another console manufacturer to step in. Oh noez! A console world without MICROSOFT!?!?!?! Consoles were fine prior to Xbox, and consoles will be fine afte...

It's not just the Xbox One. Microsoft as a company has been becoming more and more distrustful. Back in 2006 Ballmer said their new "core" was advertisers, advertisers, advertisers. No big surprise to see what the Xbox 360 dashboard ended up becoming.

Microsoft has already said that the Xbox One is geared toward better, more personalized advertisement. It's pretty obvious they have the tech to face-scan you to see how you react to certain ads and then sell ...

And yet there are people out there (setting aside the people online who are legitimate "viral marketers" hired by Microsoft) who honestly place their gaming entertainment future in the hands of Microsoft...

Kinda sad.

Prior to the 360 launching, Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, said that their old foundation was developers, developers, developers but NOW it is advertisers, advertisers, advertisers. And it was no surprise whatsoever when the 360 became one big TV commercial. Microsoft makes hundreds of millions annually selling your information to advertisement. The XBox One was built from the ground up to be a new advertising platform (Microsoft themselves said this).

But hey, Microsoft has...yo...

@ pixelsword

Yeah, but unlike the situation with Killzone 2, the gaming "journalists" won't hold Microsoft accountable. They never do. It happened so many times where Xbox 360 games were advertised with bullshots and touched-up trailers but no one made a peep about it.

Bribing is the wrong word.

But the underlying sentiment - I think - is valid. What has the Xbox brand brought to the game industry? I mean, really sit down and think for a minute. What has Xbox brought to the wide world of videogaming?

Halo? Bought out by Microsoft from a Mac developer, Bungie.

Gears of War? Made by EPIC and crew.

Fable? That one is Molyneux and his team.

Banjo Kazooie? Perfect Dark? Killer I...

I have no sympathy for these "journalists", especially when these are some of the same people who basically said "Stop complaining about the XBox One and just bend over, crybabies".

Oh, oh, but NOW you guys get all upset when a huge corporation doesn't do things that you want? You don't say...

Yeah, Carmack is just being a PC whore (as usual). For years and years, he lamented how consoles didn't have enough RAM and how he could make games SO much better if only he had more RAM. here's the RAM you asked for and now it's not a significant change? Riiiiight.

I think so, too. Does this mean Sony plans to discontinue the OLED version? If that's the case, people should buy one NOW. The OLED screen is really, really nice looking and the system will become a collector's item if they stop making Vitas with OLED screens.

Pretty harsh score for the best arcade beat 'em up since Castle Crashers back in 2008.

Props for referencing the actual book - not movie - of I Am Legend, which is a pertinent metaphor here.

I was once a Microsoft gamer. I use the term "Microsoft gamer" because I was booting games up on MS-DOS long before people got their first taste of Microsoft through the Xbox. I was there playing the first Flight, the first Age of Empires, the first Close Combat games. At best, now I either tolerate Microsoft (in terms of using their OS to play games on PC) or I i...
