That picture of Don Mattrick makes me smile, a hint of desperation in his face "Pleeeease buy this". I thought this gen would be a no-brainer, that Microsoft would build on the popularity of the 360 and firmly cement their position in the console market. I had both consoles last gen but used the 360 far more but this gen I bought the PS4 and didn't buy the XBOX One until over a year later. I still use the PS4 more but enjoy the exclusives on the XBOX and like the direction the p...

It's pretty poor when a site just writes a bad review for clickbait. Anyome can set up a site or a YouTube channel, post some contentious opinions and watch the money roll in from their advertisers as unsuspecting gamers go to their sites and channels as they shit on the teams who actually have the talent to create something.

It will still outsell Battlefield and any other FPS that dares to launch in the same period. I'll buy both any enjoy them for what they offer though it's likely Battlefield will hold my attention in the long term just as BF4 has. The down voting/dislikes don't mean much as a lot of those posting dislikes will still buy the game.

I'm hopeful that they will do this justice and not just put out a quick HD update, from the brief scenes we've seen so far it looks like they are going to do a proper update

The 360 pads wore down yes but after a much much longer period, years in my case. The analogue sticks on my PS4 pads wore through after only around 6-7 months. I bought a new pad which does seem to be a bit better but I prefer the diamond textured harder wearing rubber on the XBOX One pads though they don't have the funky touchpad and the speaker

It sounds like they are rushing this to the PC and I don't know why. No multiplayer and more importantly for a racing game no wheel support from launch but will be added later so why not just hold back and do a decent release. I love the Forza franchise, I've played every version since the first and was happy to hear it was also coming to PC but they risk damaging the reputation of a good franchise for the sake of holding it back a few months.

The writer of the article can't be watching much TV then, product placement is everywhere, why on earth would he think Microsoft would pass up on advertising their products in a game they invested heavily in? Just more of the same Kotaku nonsense articles, they lost any shred of credibility when they went all crazy ex-girlfriend on Sony after they blackballed them for leaking news on PSN Home.

"the first fps to have online was CS in 1999."

LOL seriously? Please go and look up Quakeworld and Qspy, we were playing online across the Internet long before 1999, when you've learned all about Quakeworld, look up Kali, Gamespy and a whole host of games played across the Internet. Back in 1995 I was using a DOS PPP/SLIP script to play online with hundreds of players all in one arena in Warbirds. All that was long after I was playing multiplayer Doom and Duke N...

Titanfall was fun, it was just a bit shallow. I'm hoping they use a new engine as it just didn't seem right such powerful robots and weapons yet there was no environment destruction or bullet penetration.

It's unusual for Microsoft not to send out keys quickly, I've received them for other promotions quite quickly although I don't understand the delay its not like they have to post anything, it's a completely computerised system that should be capable of sending out a simple key.

Does the XBOX One need a VR headset? for great gaming no, for public perception of the brand yes, it can't afford to be seen as the format without VR with it being such a high profile feature. I fear Hololens will become this generations Kinect - a great idea but poorly implemented and supported.

@MCTJim Agreed, nothing new. There is a lot of talk about how Microsoft cannot be trusted yet the openness of the Win32 system which allows developers to release what they want has caused lots of issues of its own with developers bundling software in with the install program that users don't want, some of it reasonably harmless but some unscrupulous developers bundling software that leaves systems open to security breaches. What Microsoft is trying to do is make the Windows platform more...

The majority of the reviews are very positive about the game, this is nowhere near a 5/10, just another clickbait video from someone who makes a living from his advertising partners.

Not one flight simulator listed like DCS World one of the most hardcore flight sims ever or a racing simulator like iRacing? Really poor list

It does make me laugh when I see statements like "a story popped up yesterday that could endanger what all of us do in the game journalism industry". Far too many people, a lot of them kids set up a Wordpress site or a YouTube channel and call themselves "journalists" when they are at best just another blogger with no real experience or qualifications to call themselves a "journalist".

On the face of it this looks like a case of rich game develop...

Rally fans are in for a treat with DIRT Rally, I bought it the day it released on PC and plan on buying the PS4 version to play with friends on that system.

Another lame site that employs a slideshow format to its articles so you have to click to a new page and get deluged with another set of adverts, one of which on the front page is for a drug that promises you to "get those abs", talk about hypocrisy. The majority of male leads in games are super fit with sculpted bodies and this is reinforced even further with the bad guys or enemies often being portrayed as overweight dummies or weedy nerds but the moment you put an ample set of br...

How does rubbish like this get approved? I've seen longer comments on N4G than this so called article.

"While that is largely true, he is forgetting that modeday inventions have given birth to technologies like wireless peripherals."

Ignoring the spelling mistake, I very much doubt someone like Phil Spencer in his position is forgetting about wireless controller technology or is unaware of Steams Big Picture mode.
