^I'm a PS4/PC guy also...and yes, to a card that cost $250 in Oct. '13...today you can get a 280x or 285 for $250...which are both over twice as powerful as the integrated gpu of the PS4...the PS4's gpu is essentially a mobile version of the full 7970, which is what the 280x is based on...the PS4's version is effectively a desktop 7850, but clocked at an even lower than reference 800mhz...

Not saying thats good or bad...but, thats why PS4's aren't hitt... #1.1.16

^as i said i'm not 100 years old...I'll take a little bit of idiotic UI design with fundamentally better EVERYTHING ELSE...fix it with free plug-ins that make it EXACTLY THE SAME AS IT WAS BEFORE...

but...thats just me...so, keep DX 11.0...yes, your start menu is better... #1.1.4

Xbox Live is the single reason the Xbox division of MS exists...

PS Now, EA Access, etc...those are ALL derivatives of Xbox Live...the xbox division NEVER had a runaway success console; they have/had a successful online service that required the purchase of a particular 'box' of hardware in order to use it...

the 360 took off last generation initially because of XBL...and the PS3's price point mixed with the PSN being relatively feature-less at la... #1.1.4

^wait, wait, wait...

I totally agree that Windows 8 and 8.1 are very similar, i never had a problem with windows 8 since i built my gaming machine last year...but, i'm also not 100 years old...and I can get over some UI differences after a couple of days...Windows 8 is superior at multi-core cpu utilization, and a number of other issues aside from it just having 'metro'...and 8.1 makes it more like 7 anyway...

however...Windows Vista very much was... #1.1.2

@vallencer

but...Danger close is now Dice LA...and thats kind of why the notion of 'DICE' as any real development entity is pointless...

DICE is any given number of EA employees at any given time...big battlefield game coming?...about 300 or so employees all of a sudden are given new business cards...the game launches...and about 275 of them are then moved on to something else, and given new business cards again...

then a BF spin off?... #1.1.8

Its very important for people to understand that the 360 did well mostly because of mistakes on others parts, not so much MS being brilliant...

the 360 released before the PS3, but that wasn't MS executing some insanely detailed plan, it was because BD diodes screwed up the PS3's initial launch window (which was scheduled for just a month or two after the 360 in some territories)...that same situation also caused the sky rocketing price of the PS3; another win for MS.... #1.5.3

100% correct, even though i don't think that was your intent...

the 'demo' lives on just fine and well...its suits in the publishing departments that figured out a marketing gimmick of calling a demo a 'beta' instead...which does exactly what you said...it tricks the potential buyer into thinking they're participating in something more than a simple demo; in something that will improve an unfinished product into something spectacular...

have to agree...a 290x at full song will push heat like you wouldn't believe...not digging, a lot of guys have had them on nearly non stop in BF4 for nearly 10 months with no issues...

but if you hover around 50C, you're bottlenecked to hell and back somewhere...

but on the other hand...'kind of weak' is a stretch as well...CF and SLI sound 'cool' on the forums, but they're almost unanimously poorly optimized options for steady gam... #1.1.3

doesn't seem that the PS4 version has any form of AO from what i could tell, either...but, like many, AO imo has been one of those resource heavy effects that doesn't seem to be all that necessary in most titles...

for reference, look at the weapon models in the under ground sections of the video...AO creates more realistic soft shadowing and reflections on the weapon and player arms...darker games tend to get away with little or no AO more than brighter titles, at le... #2.1

TF was built on source...an engine from 2004...

Maxed out on PC it looked like a high res 360 game...static environments (LOVED how the devs said buildings were not destructible 'because this future universe has reinforced their environments around the existence of Titans'....hahahaha), laughable particle effects, extremely small maps, 'advanced AI' that you'd constantly catch staring at a corner...etc...

because it WAS a 360 game...If the... #8.1.2

for me personally...the only thing TF accomplished was illustrating how desperate this industry is for a very methodical revamp of price vs. content...TF had $10 worth of content from the get go...at that price, i definitely would've bought it for PC...and so would A LOT of other multiplayer fans...

instead...it tried to ride a wave of hype based on it being 'from the creators of CoD', and EA charged a premium retail cost because of it...didn't work...and the... #1.3.4

sorry, you guys are crazy...I still have my original day 1 copy of Doom 3 for PC from summer '04...and got the BFG Edition for Ps3 whenever it released...the BFG edition definitely added some things that should've been in there to begin with (flashlight being on your suit, etc.)...but they're still SO FAR from what Doom is all about...it makes my head hurt...

the original Doom games...are what i'm hoping for with this new title...Doom 3, no matter the version... #3.1.4

Do you have any better sources for that? I'm not disagreeing, just keep seeing conflicting word on that...

Originally everyone said its using a 'new engine', but then a couple interviews with Bethesda and iD said it was using a 'highly modified version of IDTech 5 (rage engine), and we're only focusing on next gen equipment'...or something like that...

don't really care either way...i just want to actually see the gameplay haha... #1.2.1

CryTek is all but selling their office furniture...

NO DEVELOPER will touch this card until 2016...I almost guarantee that...not talking about tech demos, as i know the UE4 3D mark will be all over it...just mean released titles that actually utilize it...

its like BiggCMan said...it shouldn't be this way...but it is...so w/e...capability of hardware is so far beyond whats financially possible for game development anymore...the industry just doesn't m... #4.1.5

Dear Random Internet Guy,

Thanks for your feedback, but honestly...we were just afraid of Destiny

Yours,

exactly...everything in their lineup is broken...the only thing that happened is that some suit had an accountant crunch some numbers on how much it would cost to fix and maintain that many broken titles after release, on top of titles released in 2013...and all of a sudden everything made sense...

hardline will still release as a buggy floater...only difference is upkeep of BF4 will be over...so EA's 'full attention' on hardline for 9 months after release will po... #11.1.2
