the game has 'possible' unlocked frames and 4k res on PC...Seeing that very few released cards are all super great at running any game released this year at 4k and 60 or above fps...all of which are well north of 6tflops...doesn't paint a great picture for scorpio hitting the same marks...

it may do 4k to some degree...but i'd be more happy and accepting of a console hitting full hd at 60fps minimum...currently still isn't an option for 90% of games...1 ...

Consoles are expected to last like a decade...that is dumb...it's been dumb for over a decade...and continues to be dumb. All he was saying was that MS w/ scorpio is moving towards a smartphone like system in terms of it being a boat for a service...not a closed product that becomes ob...

I'm looking at scorpio as a win10 game store version of the surface series...MS used the surface pro devices to directly fight Apple's ipad line...and facking destroyed ipad's in like a year...as productivity tablets they're unmatched...and they're losing money as they price them so low they don't cover the marketing behind th...

@yetter...context is key with that statement from JC.

He said it in early 2014, when DX11 still (and continues to) have a massive governance on PC development/hardware.

The irony is that scorpio HELPS this aspect of PC overhead. There are already low level api's for PC, but not that many games use them yet. Doom has recently shown what Vulkan w/ async compute can effectively do on PC's (at least those with amd gpus.............) BF4 showed promise...

Kind of jumping to conclusions.

Where is MS talking about exclusive content for the scorpio? Developers will 'take advantage of it's hardware more than PC'? Where is anyone getting that? It's like every time MS goes on record and discusses these things, some of you just ignore it and continue to think they're going to handle it like they used to.

xbox, as a product line, is turning into more than a single piece of hardware. Windows 10 ...

Congratulations, Otter.

Most have touched on the 'important' issues, so I won't keep rehashing that. I've been a father for eight months to the day. My only pro tip would be: get into woodworking as well as your current hobbies. You're an artist, you're probably very creative, and with just a bit of practice and research along with a few relatively inexpensive tools and supplies...you can build things like cribs and baby gates and stuff that'll m...

Still on my sapphire 280x TE from fall 2013...What throttling did you have in BF4? I've had zero issues with the card, and kind of impressed that it'll now hold over 60fps at 1080 ultra in Doom with vulkan.

Not sounding accusatory, I just mean most refer to the 280x as one of the more stable and least problematic AMD gpu's over the past several years. It's very much approaching low end by today's standards, but I just haven...

I get what you're saying...

but a 'few expensive cars' usually can reach a million dollars and go up from there...an 'expensive' PC is a couple grand...If his roughly $6k PC is questionable on even a weekly budget, something isn't right...ideally, guys like him make more than that per day in account interest alone...let alone any actual 'work' that they earn income from.

I mean just for arguments sake...If Terry has a bank ...

@TheCommentator:

are you serious? The PS3 had '2.1 Tflops'? typo, right?...You're saying it's 'better' for system balance to release something with a weaker gpu, and that that makes it overall more efficient?...That MS was ahead of the curve against the PS4 by gimping the gpu, losing literally on every single multiplat game ever released this gen, and being one of the most quickly forgotten consoles of modern gaming...and that was...on purpose?

Completely agree. I'm pretty cpu bound most of the time for any game. Still using an A10 6800k w/ igpu disabled, but OC'd to 4.8ghz. I can get by, could still hold a little over 60fps in BF4 multiplayer...but, I expected Doom to hurt more on the gpu side...

I'm using a 280x, too. 1150/1600 clocks and Doom was completely playable and find with ogl. mins around 55 on high settings, other than some really bizarre spots in certain levels where it would dip into the...

when all this is removed from the context of gaming...to a strictly business situation...there is no arguing that MS has always been pretty brilliant about it. The views of most famous gaming developers/programmers always have an almost idealistic and/or artistic approach...where as MS has maintained a strictly cut-throat objective nature...it's important to not blame them for that directly, as that is first and foremost their 'economic purpose'...Guys like Sweeney used what MS ha...

Electronic Arts is head'd by Peter Moore.

Most people that know that man's name didn't buy an Xbox One. If you don't know who he is, and did buy an Xbox One, look him up...and learn about the commonalities between a public hardware beta (Xbox 360 and RRoD) and rushing every title to market regardless of stability (Sim City, BF4 {special thanks to that one's 12 months of being completely on fire}, etc.)...

Yes..Tim Sweeney is a nobody. He has had zero impact on the industry. All the stuff he said in this article (that scorpiusX didn't read and/or understand) is completely unfounded.

Exactly like John Carmack and Gabe Newell. None of these guys have ever had a good understanding of what MS is up to (even though one was an employee of them), and all they do is whine like brats on gaming forums.

the floor is yours, sir. Please clarify the ethics of how MS ...

it wasn't a bribe, or at least not in the legal context of which everyone seems to think they're an expert on...For it to be technically an illegal bribe, it would need to be proven that he disliked the game...then accepted money while flipping his opinion with the intent of deceiving his viewers...The bigger issue is that, with this game specifically, his 'fun' with the game wasn't unwarranted anyway. It received unanimous praise back in 2014 from nearly everyone...so the...
