There were quite a few cut from the original release. Originally I think there was supposed to be 48(?) colossi, then that was scaled down to 24. 24 were actually made, and you can see that in a few empty battle areas on the map.

I still don't think Platinum Games were capable of making a game as big as Scalebound.

You look at games like vanquish, Bayonetta, and even Nier, and they aren't anything close to the size that Scalebound would need to be. The fact that it was cancelled after being shown multiple times, and over three years.... to me, is proof. Nier was announced and released in a much shorter timeframe, so I think SB was just too big for them.

So? Shouldn't we judge the briefings based on the quality of the shows? CoD: WWII was a decent part of the Sony conference... doesn't matter that it isn't exclusive.

Wonder if it'll have a secret new colossus or something... probably wishful , but it'd be cool.

There are 4K movie players out there that are more expensive on their own... so that alone makes it a good price. Not everyone has the need for a premium console, so it's all up to the individual user whether it's worth it or not. I was personally blown away by the graphics of Metro and Anthem, so I'll consider getting one.

I don't know. I get the impression that a 60fps upgrade would me more complicated than "Do I have enough power to do it?" Look at Dark Souls II on X1/PS4 for example, the increased frame rate messed up a few things there. I'm fine with a simple 4K upgrades for existing games. It's games released around the same time and after the X where I'll be judging its power. Metro: Exodus and Anthem showed how powerful it is.

The Crash N-Sane Trilogy, a which...

Last thoughts? How about we wait until E3 before giving "last" thoughts?

Uhh...what? These aren't just some "Anecdotal variances", that's dismissive as hell (which further shows you probably aren't even considering what I'm writing.) It's the nature of backwards compatibility.

It absolutely DOES transfer into a lot of game time. But like most games, popularity wears off after launch. All the big games I mentioned got a lot of NEW SALES to back up that they got quite a lot of playtime. But even a big launch won't...

"So the average Xbox user plays BC less than an hour a week."

Well if we're going to assume that every Xbox user does the exact same thing every week, then sure. Case closed, MS shut down the BC team.

However, you're forgetting two things. 1 - Because it's a 6 month period, the percentage of BC playtime for each user is stretched thin. Bringing up the other example - I've completed 3 BC games over a 1.5 year period. That's qu...

I was referring to Sony trashing BC. But your stance on BC suggests you ain't exactly pro-Xbox yourself.

But hey, if you don't want Sony to even try to do something like this, I'm glad they're not delivering what you don't want.

The games have really picked up on PS4 this year, no doubt. Nioh, Gravity Rush 2 and Persona 5 are all awesome. Obviously it's not as good exclusive-wise on Xbox. However, you need to bare in mind that Phil Spencer only took over about two years ago. That's not enough time for brand new exclusives to be developed and released, so I'll give it another two years before I get concerned.

I'm only talking about the consoles themselves, and the companies. There&#...

VGchartz has the sales, which should be roughly correct.

Happy now? It's not like there's a database for hours played, and that's the best resource I could find. Surely it's fine to assume the two consoles have a similar average playtime per user. Even if it's a bit more, or a bit less, it doesn&...

I've completed Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Mass Effect 1, Halo Reach, and played some Black Ops 2 multiplayer. That's over the past 1.5 years, so that will look like an insignificant percentage. But I've certainly got some good use out of it, I beat 3 whole BC games, I don't actually beat many games these days.

However... I would've also used YouTube more over that 1.5 year period, let alone proper Xbox One games. So even I would have a small percentage....

1.5 percent of time Xbox One is used on backwards compatible games. That might sound low, but the raw numbers tell a different story.

Sony just announced PS4 users use Their console for 50,000 years per week. 24 hours times 365 days = 8760. 8760 hours times 50,000 = 438,000,000.

Surveys have shown that individual Xbox users, on average, use their console just as much, if not more than PS4 users. So we'll just call it equal. Xbox One has sold 29.6 mil...
