As ever depends on the game you want to play.
I'm getting 70fps out of Overwatch running max setting @ 1920x1080 with a 200% super sample, so rendering at 4K
While maybe not at max settings the gtx1080 should be able to deliver 4K at 60fps for most current games and I don't think we can ask more then that from a single card
Imagine the customs designs will be a month at least. Especially as all the main players are selling the Founders edition under their own brands.
It's worth the wait, built a new system using a 1080 on Friday and it flys.
What's about games like FIFA and Madden that only really have one "map"
Not everything is about quantity, replay value is also a big factor and Overwatch has lots of replay value much like MOBAs and despite LoL and DotA being "free to play" the average player spends more than £40 a year
Just because you don't see value in it for you doesn't mean it's bad value or doomed to burn out in a month.
So many of these articles talking about people feeling left out because someone else has a better version then them or feeling pressured to upgrade. But these are feeling not felt by the majority of consumers and this is backed up by sales figures. Everyone buys a new console when they're ready to regardless of the cycle duration. If everyone or even the majority of people felt they had to upgrade ASAP then the consoles would be supply constrained for their first year on the market but th...
They must be doing something better then before other wise I doubt Sony would be rushing the PS4 Neo to market so quickly.
The likelihood is that the NX will have similar specs to those seen for the Neo. There have also been a number of reports suggesting that Nintendo are providing tools to help Devs port PS4 games to the NX to the point of making it a no brainer for them to release an NX version of a game.
If the rumours coming out are true then when the NX is an...
As counters (kind of) to your points
1 - This is becoming a trend, but once it's been in place for a few years it won't seem as bad. Take the iPhone as an example few people buy every model most people buy every other model because the difference from one model to the next isn't big enough to have an impact on their day to day use.
2 - I know we're still in the rumour stage and of cause Ts&Cs can always be changed but the document that...
How does it punish early adopters? They still have their exact same console and they are still getting new games for that console. They can even continue to play games with their friends online who have the new console. Other then people with a unrealistic need to "keep up with the Jones'" this hurts no one.
Not to mention that it's very likely that the NX will be at NEO levels of power and theirs a very real chance that MS are planning on doing the exact...
Some interesting points that I have some thoughts;
"-cross gen port mentality becoming commonplace"
--- Is that not the entire point that games will just run "cross gen" to the point that the console generations are less important.
"-lack of developers taking the time to really utilize the newer hardware to it's full potential "
--- Given the amount of power now avail...
@TheCommentator I think it's safe to say that there will be another upgrade in 2-3 years from now. But as long as they continue to support forward and backward comparability then I don't have a problem with it. People who always want the best can buy the new upgraded model every 3 years, And the people who are less concerned about having the best graphics can buy their system every 6 - 9 years and then they have the option of buying the current best or saving some money by getting the...
What a cock! The loud and whinny of the internet are deplorable but Fish does himself no favours
Would be great if it works!! Make selection (PS4 Europe) and it then says to come back and make the selection again on the 17th!!
Also the FAQ states that you need to play ON the 27th @ 8pm PDT in order to get an exclusive emblem. Which is 4am BST 5am CEST which seems a bit off. I'm hoping the FAQ is just badly worded and they BY the 27th not ON
Sure EA still loose as they've lost out on some million plus sales by not being on the playstation, surely that would have worth EA stumping up the cash in the first place. But instead they gambled on the XBox One outselling the PS4. While they ended up having a reduced financial risk they've lost in profits at the end of it all.
@TheDivine Agree with a lot of what you said but Sony are still exploring more interesting concepts just now doing most of that through nurturing the indie dev. The PS+ free games so far have offered some nice games.
And there's definitely not a lack of survival horror at the mo Outlast is great, Daylight and the evil with are both looking very interesting.
A global price drop will be the very last thing they do if they really are in the position that they have no other choice. Right now sales are going well, not as good as PS4 but still going at a good pace. Compared to last gen launches both consoles are doing amazingly well.
Right now they can sell almost as much as they can make so personally I think they'll use the new country launches as a reason to keep the current price and make the most out of the holiday season. On...
@Septic There's already been enough leaks from various sources confirming that the console released a minimum of 6 months ahead of it planned release and the timing of Titanfall and the DX12 releases add extra weight to that.
Sony really caught them naopping, while Sony made a massive miss step with the PS3, MS really shouldn't have under estimated them, for starters they seem to just assuming they had all sown up at the end of 2012 and just seemed to stop bothering...
From a potential install base of 3.7million 700k is pretty decent that's 1 in 5 XB1 owners having a copy. The hardware sales boost was never going to be mind blowing especially when it's also available on PC.
I think they'll be happy with those numbers the big question though is was the money MS paid for the exclusive console deal enough? I suspect that when the deal was made EA were expecting XBox to be dominating the PS4
Respawn have done a good job with Titanfall so here hoping that the PC sales have been good. Such a shame that MS/EA decided to pull Respawn into the console wars a multiplatform release would have done a lot better for them.
Guess we'll see once we have it to play from the few full res screen grabs and the video Sony released today showing gameplay I'm leaning towards SP telling the truth, the leaked video was heavily compressed so you can judge texture quality or other fine details from it. As for the lighting there a difference between looking better and being technically downgraded. Bright sunny scenes will always look more detailed because you see more detail in real life when things are better lit.
Pretty shocking both from Sony and the writer of the article as he fails to mention that the Mp is still 1080 lines. And on the flipped side Sony (and other devs for that matter should be stateing XxY for resolutions and not the HD standards 720/1080.
As for the grander PS4 vs XB1 debate this doesn't change much as the only comparisons that really matter are how each system handles multiplat games.
