Xbox One Games At E3 Were Running On Windows 7 With Nvidia GTX Cards

You know how EA's COO Peter Moore told Geoff Keighley during the post-conference interview at E3 that the games they were showing off on stage were running on comparable dev kit specs to the actual home consoles? Well...that's not really true. What is true, however, is that to get the best performance on home console games, Microsoft made sure that they were running on the most stable system specs available on the market and that happened to be an HP powered, Windows 7 system with Nvidia's 700 series GTX GPU.

Firstly is that a XBOX display screen (being faked) or some windows xbox demo screen (real). It will make or break the story I guess.

More importantly I want to know this:

How many XBOX 360 sold in world? 68million?
How many XBL subscribers in the world? 35 million?

So what will happen to the 50% (almost I know) that will NOT buy the xbox one?

Thats like half your user base wiped off the potential list from the start... that online check is going to really hurt.

Am I wrong on the math?

Army_of_Darkness2005d ago (Edited 2005d ago )

So the games that they were demoing on stage were not evening running on the actual xbone console?! OMG. Hahahahah! It's like as if the media finally see's and are exposing the Bullsh1t that MS has been doing for years! I'm just glad most of the 360 owners are finally returning back to Sony's platform cause we all know most of them originated from the PS2;-)

darthv722005d ago (Edited 2005d ago )

it was the EA game(s) not all xb1 games in general. EA will want to showcase their games the best way possible.

that is why they can get away with saying "comparable" instead of actual.

If EA was showcasing any of their games as being for the PS4 then it is the same situation.

Gamers on both sides were duped by EA not Sony or MS.

edit: my bad i thought this was about the battlefield demo on stage. the article doesnt say which game. Pretty funny though.

Mystogan2005d ago

Dude the games were running on PC at the Sony conference too. Which is why they hanged. Or it was faulty PS4 hardware, you choose.

blackbeld2005d ago (Edited 2005d ago )

Agreed. Finally the media see it.

M$oft are a bunch of liars and fakers.

Mannn.. XBone bad news keep coming.

BitbyDeath2005d ago

Bigger eye opener is that even Microsoft don't use Windows 8.

PunisherRevenge2005d ago just wow. You guys would believe anything. If Sony told you guy the PS4 was being manufactured on Mars you guy would believe how can y'all sit here and say the X1 games are running on the nvidia gtx cards when the X1 doesn't. Shouldn't that make the hardware and software incompatible?

JoySticksFTW2004d ago (Edited 2004d ago )

They were reputable insiders on neogaf who leaked that Xbone e3 games would be decidedly better than what would release to customers at launch.

This was supposedly due to games running on machines not representative of Xbone's now reduced (downclocked) specs.

Also some suggested "enhanced" temporary versions were shown at e3 to mask the fact that games are as much as six months behind in development, among other reasons.

Let's face it, this system and it's policies are rushed, half-baked, and is still being pushed forward. That's scary.

Army_of_Darkness2004d ago

Oh yeah, a little guy that corrects people's grammar on n4g is gonna break me?! Lmao! Scary, oooooooh..

But your right, I totally used eyes incorrectly somehow and I actually laughed at myself.

Welcome home my brethren. You have strayed far from the flock, but You were led astray. Fear no retribution here as our high almighty lord of PlayStation forgives you.

Boody-Bandit2004d ago (Edited 2004d ago )

Every single time I have a shred of weakness and start to think "maybe" should say WTF, just pre=order a ONE as well? BAAAM! Articles like this pop up. Keep them coming to help keep me strong.

If this is true? The games that were shown at MS's E3 Event might not look as good as run as well as they did while on display. Just another smoke and mirrors / dog and pony show (Milo, NATAL & The Wizard of OZ).

DatNJDom812004d ago

Why are any of you guys surprised??? It's Microfalse were talking about here. NOTHING they show works as advertised.

3-4-52004d ago

I love my 360....keeping it no matter what.

But yea this might be my first Playstation.....a little late to the party but they fixed the controller, which I hated so that was all that was holding me back for the most part...that and load times.

PS4 seems like the logical " can't lose" scenario/option in terms of games for the long term.

Is Sony still doing the discounted games and free games stuff with PS+ ? And does that apply to all Sony products.

Like if I get a Vita eventually to, does PS+ carry over to that as well.

Only Sony thing I have is a PSP I bought last year and it's cool but I like my 3DS a bit better. Still nice to play PS games for a change though. Been missing out on so many since 1996/1997

gaffyh2004d ago

Looks like they are rushing to the market once again, and the console isn't fully tested.

RED RING 2.0 looks to be on the cards me thinks.

JoySticksFTW2004d ago

Ps plus gives free games, discounts, and exclusives to all systems with one subscription including Vita.

I don't have a Vita yet, but I have collected every game released for it on ps plus so far. And they're heavy weights Vita titles too like Gravity Rush and Uncharted.

It should help take the sting off for putting online play behind the pay wall.

NatureOfLogic2004d ago

MS is clearly rushing their console so they wont be crushed by sony.

British_Knight2004d ago

I really don't know how factual the article is. I watched every bit of E3, recorded everything on Spike, watched the live stream on IGN, Gametrailers, and Gamespot. Not once did hear any employee of IGN, Gamespot or Gametrailers say Microsoft were running their demos on a PC with a Nvidia GTX GPU.

I watched gamers, who attended E3, play live demos of XBOX One games with an XBOX One controller in hand and a black box encased in glass. Maybe it wasn't an XBOX One. I think the Microsoft hate is getting way out of hand. It seems like the "cool" thing to do is to jump on the PS4 bandwagon and talk trash about Microsoft.

so 30 million said to u they are not buying xbone? great!

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney2005d ago

I want to see the xbox fanboy troll named NeverEnding now!!!


Ritsujun2004d ago

Neverendingtroll's neverending trolling (since 1989) has finally ended.

UnHoly_One2005d ago

You're probably slightly wrong on the math because of people that own multiple consoles.

I own 4 Xbox 360's, for instance.

Utalkin2me2005d ago

Funny how before everybody was like "I still have my original xbox 360". But when it come for their purpose. "Well i have owned 4 xboxes."

Sorry i would never buy 4 of the exact same thing.

UnHoly_One2005d ago

lol, well believe it or not, I DO still own my original launch day 360. I've had three others fail on me over the years, but my launch box still works.

I also own another one that my girlfriend uses, a Modern Warfare 2 collectors edition, and a Slim.

I have them all on different TVs in different rooms. I can host a 4 box LAN party without having anyone bring anything special, and it's awesome. lol

I also own 2 Wii's, 2 PS3's, 2 original Xboxes, 2 GameCubes, etc, etc...

It's worth a couple hundred bucks to me to buy multiple of the same console so I don't have to share. lol


Now if you buy two Xbones, remember you also have to buy 2 of the same game, one for each console.

andibandit2004d ago (Edited 2004d ago )


He might be slightly off on the math, but trust me you are by no means the typical consumer and i wouldn't use you as an example.

Utalkin2me2004d ago

Sorry if i ever had 3 of the exact same thing fail on me i would want someone to slap some sense into me. "Fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me".

Whats the big deal of someone just packing their console over? I'm not going to sit here and call you names, but boy am i thinking it.

They don't care about all those people. They're hoping they can replace them with unknowing casuals.

clarkdef2004d ago

Yeah but I don't think casuals care for paying online subs, atleast not ongoing, see the way I see it is they are turning away the gamers who know their stuff, the ones who follow the news. Those are the types who pay for live, and atleast 75% of them are jumping ship.

irepbtown2004d ago

Exactly what I thought, however what Casual gamer will buy a console at launch for £429.99/$499?

Microsoft wont even get the bloody casuals let alone the hardcore gamers.

On-topic: They've really shot themselves in the foot. I will say Ryse: Son of Rome and Dead Rising 3 looked really good during their conference. However they weren't shown on the Xbox One itself so more questions I guess :l

mediate-this2004d ago

What? you think.. you.. huh?

medman2004d ago

Not to mention the many customers (like myself) that had to purchase a replacement console to replace their red ring brick. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I bought a PS3 in 2008, and it has been fantastic. I enjoy their first party developers and psplus is a tremendous value for money. The Xbox One will never see the inside of my home. I can only hope the Xbox One has a tendency to turn into a useless piece of plastic just like this gen's 360. It would serve the fools who buy and support Microsoft's policies just right. Fool me twice, after all.

SpinalRemains2004d ago

No. You're close.

They are essentially starting over. They destroyed their userbase and many are long gone.

Couple that with the FACT that most owners are on their 3rd 360, and now half the base is gone, we can safely assume that 10 million users from 360 will go for Xbone.

They need many many new adopters to succeed. They're banking on the 360 base that will be on PS4.

They've really hurt themselves to start.

Steadyhndz2004d ago

One thing to consider though...and I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm just wanting to say to take this into consideration.

How many Xbox 360 owners have had to buy a 2nd Xbox 360 from retail?

If I had to estimate, I'd say of the 68 million, at least 5-10 million were 2nd time buyers.

Jazz41082004d ago

All dev kits hook into a pc. I was at e3 and the game I played was ryse and mycontroller was hooked into a dev kit. Sony did the same thing. This story is bs and anyone who was there knows this.

Damn another lie a geforce GTX700 is years ahead of the APU's on X1 in terms of performance "comparable specs" my ass

Blackdeath_6632005d ago (Edited 2005d ago )

well i knew it already. gave them benefit of the doubt because i knew know one would believe me even if i said but yeah XBone games were running on pc's

MuhammadJA2005d ago

LOOOOL!!!!! Replace the "X1" with the "PS4" and it will be your end!

BTW, I agree with you.

Arai2004d ago

The Witcher 3 demo they showed supports this article, watch the video in 1080p.

I have Witcher 2: AoKEE (fully maxed out)and it doesn't look anything like the details found in the Witcher's 3 demo.

Not to mention that YT videos are compressed making them look crappier than they are.

Halochampian2004d ago

It's actually not uncommon to have a very powerful PC emulating a console's environment.

That is probably what is happening here.

Microsoft have been caught bullsh*tting their way out of E3 for years now. It started even before all the fake Kinect vids.

MestreRothN4G2005d ago

Never seen it. +funny bubble to you.

MestreRothN4G2005d ago

Seems like a joke. After partnering with AMD, why would they run with NVidia, who is endlessly bitter about both consoles lefting it out?

darthv722005d ago

it was EA.

EA will showcase their game in the best way possible.

tuglu_pati2005d ago


is not a Joke is a rumor.

ShwankyShpanky2005d ago

The "rumor" is based on an actual photograph of someone servicing an Xbone kiosk, and you can see that it's a tower PC inside the cabinet with a GeForce card.

I bet next time they don't use them fancy towers with the plexiglas windows.

abzdine2005d ago

We'll never know but with all rumours that turned to be true I have almost no doubt about this

Greatness awaits
