yeah...isn't he just saying...the game is balanced...? How is that at all arrogant? He's praising the game, as this simple concept is something almost every dev absolutely butchers these days...

GameNameFame:

I agree it wasn't the best analogy, but I should've mentioned I was more speaking on how the windows store would function as a distribution service only...not a 'platform'...It's kind of a given that a windows OS can't function as a closed gaming platform, or if attempted, would be rejected...only that software can be linked to a certain dist. channel.

As far as 3rd parties...I would never jump to conclusions on that....

this back and fourth between PC and an MS console never would've sat well with developers because it would've involved porting and everything else...but with DX12 it is all one game; the xbox one, one S, and scorpio's are just PC's with weaker/better hardware as far as the api's are concerned...and since 95% of modern gaming is developed for PC anyway, it's merely a sca...

@ONESHOTV2, was that a reply to me, or someone else?

the Xbox One, or any xbox console, does not have exclusives any more...EVERYTHING is coming to windows 10 users on PC that have windows 10. Are you saying otherwise? I didn't say they were losing exclusives, and I pointed out that these games are coming only to a controlled windows 10 store, not steam...that comment had nothing to do with whether or not MS makes money 'either way'...This was, what MS considere...

not trying to sound like a dick...but:

you're saying they 'almost' care more about what makes like 98% of their profits? I think the Sony vs. MS rivalry around this site has some forget that both corporations are in very different financial situations...Playstation is Sony's life line...it's literally helped hold them out of the gutter for over a decade...and is absolutely critical to its survival...

but MS? Xbox isn't even close t...

The big question with scorpio remains how the 'service' works exactly. Will it be a traditional Xbox with it's own OS/dashboard, XBL, etc. Or will it be almost a steam machine type thing for the win 10 game/app store? It's unlikely to be a full PC, as in, I highly doubt scorpio will be able to access other distribution services like Steam, Battlenet, Origin, etc., but I also don't think it's going to be another 'xbox console' in the sense of what the first 3 we...

the base multiplayer is 'stellar' to you? Not an accusation, it's only that i'm on the exact opposite ground on the exact same game...Doom is a perfect example of a game i'm glad I skipped the season pass so far.

The single player is beyond stellar, imo, and snapmap has great potential...but the multiplayer is merely ok to me...no where close to as bad as the 'media' made it out to be, but not exactly fantastic either. The free updates coming to...

I'll never understand what happened this generation with the comparisons of hardware...I understood it with the 360 and PS3, where both consoles had gpu's that weren't even available to the PC market at the time...but in 2013, something happened...

The rumored specs of the neo put it in line with having an R9 280x...underclocked...that is a Tahiti gpu released in 2011 and still underclocked from desktop versions...please let that sink in, as that is a gpu over t...

but regardless of gaming on a PC vs. a console...that isn't, from what I gathered, what was 'silly' about it...

The underlying issue is MS trying to move a console like 'service' back to PC (they've done this before and it was laughed at from the beginning)...

MS is NOT bringing xbox games to 'PC'...they're bringing xbox games to a closed windows 10 store for PC's that use windows 10...Saying 'PC' implies fr...

I have only 8GB of 2133 DDR3 system ram, and a 3GB 280x w/ 384 bit bus and 289 GB/s througput.

I've never come close to eating up those 8gb's of system ram in ANY game. OS footprint size in gaming is rarely more than 4, and over 1 GB of that remains facking windows background related.

but Vram wise, i see the coming problems. Doom won't even allow trying the ultra nightmare visual settings without more than that

I'm on PC, and never understood the appeal of Halo coming to PC.

Its 'the' console shooter. Every single innovative thing it did was structured around a fully realized and deep fps being played with a controller. Success of fps games on consoles owe a large amount of that to the original Halo.

I like the games (especially 1,2, and 3), but my interest on PC versions of the series just isn't there. Mouse and keyboard DRASTICALLY rearranges...

All the 'this isn't resident evil' because of the perspective change are just typical knee jerk reactions that come from first impressions...the EXACT same thing happened with RE4 over a decade ago...'this isn't RE', etc., etc., etc., and it ended up setting standards across the industry....and the irony is that every RE has sucked since because they DIDN'T revolutionize in...

^sort of...Scorpio is a 'windows 10' PC, and we don't yet know what MS will try to do with that...

full on PC? Or a forked version of windows 10 that locks out other distribution services like Steam, Origin, etc?...It could be a full win 10 device, as they've done very well in the tablet/laptop market with the Surface series...which are, unlike the rest of PC, not handled by OEMs but MS entirely...but they approach everything xbox will a much tighter fist......

Sony showed why you should own a PS4...

MS showed why you should not buy an Xbox One, and get a windows 10 PC, or wait for scorpio...instead...and I'm in no way saying that is a bad thing.

drastically different approaches...I was fine with MS as I have a decent windows 10 machine, and have no problems with them literally bringing everything 'exclusive' to the xbox one to PC (albeit limited to their own store or w/e)...The only question mark w...

seemingly. I'm interested to know what it is, as they indicate an soc, but that amount of power seems way more likely to be a discrete gpu...AMD's road maps suggest a ~4.5Tflop gpu in their newer line of APU's coming later this year, which lines up with rumors about the NEO's 280x-like gpu upgrade...

but 6.x...I'm kind of doubting it's even using an apu, that is 980Ti/Titanx'ish theoretical performance, and there has never been any hint that AMD...

There seem to be a lot of people that are confused by this.

There currently is not a single xbox one exclusive game in development, right? Every single xbox one game is going to be released day and date with windows 10, or is already multiplatform and will be released for PC in the more traditional sense...

therefor...a more powerful console is meaningless as far as dev concerns, they're already buidling PC versions concurrently with xbo...All xbox de...
