I really really really hope this game lives up to expectations. It has the possibility to set a benchmark for future games.

"DirectX 12 brings PC and Xbox development closer, which makes development easier and faster, allowing us to focus more on features. It also lets us work closer to “the metal”, the actual hardware, which means we can PUSH **performance** and **visual quality** even more."

But according to N4G experts, DX12 won't make the X1 any better because it's close to the metal already.

Bitterness ensues......

I actually trust Spencer over what fanboys say about Direct X.

MRMagoo1231535d ago

That statement doesn't look like it means anything for xbone it seems it says the pc will be as easy to work with as the xbone.

Hercules1891535d ago

What Spencer said was that DX12 isnt going to make the Xbone some super computer that has three Titan cards. Its going to help out the X1 most certainly and we will see visually pleasing games that were thought to be impossible to make on the hardware its on. Think Gears to Gears 3 and Gears Judgement or COD2 to Halo 4. If Ryse was just some game ported over at the last second to be a launch title, I'm sure we will see Xbone games that come close to what Uncharted 4 and The order will bring.

@hercules189 you are completely right, when we did the interview with thats exactly what he was saying. Its makes the hard easier to use and increases the strengths of the console, we'll get better looking games & better frames because its a cpu bound api. It's not a gonna make it twice as powerful but will help the xbox overall in game development. Dx12 will have a good effect on xbox one and a great effect of p.c.

[email protected] If you listen to Phil Spencer all he is doing is setting the record straight for x box fans. People like Misterx and others believe directx12 is going to suddenly make the x box 1 more powerful, thats not going to happen come on. Directx12 is an API its only software not hardware.

Every directx release since the beginning has improved graphics of games. So its not a surprise really directx12 will help the devs deliver a better graphical experience!

Directx12 main benefit will be with the frame rate, thats why everyone is waiting for it to come out. Its not a resolution fixer, and never will be that.

hows this game is going to be a benchmark aint yall tired of hyping and expecting things thats just not there. havent people learned from destiny. one reason i can expect a little from them is because they are mainly pc devs and they should know how rough the competition is on pc when it comes to mmos, since its looks like a limited closed mmo. hopefully ubisoft making them focus on console dont dumb down the dept of this game.

would love to see a world of conflict, ground control, or just a new rts from them

denawayne1535d ago

Having the possibility to set a benchmark and hyping are different in my opinion. Hyping is saying how great the game already is before it's released. Possibly setting a benchmark means there are qualities being spoken about that could make other developers look at how the new generation of games should be made. I'm mainly looking at depth, story, character development.

Absolutely LOVE dev's going out of there way to provide good AA to games on consoles. The PS3 was a jaggy fest and I'm glad people are making steps to correct that.

"Rashid Sayed: The game is already confirmed to be running at 1080p and 30fps on both the PS4 and Xbox One. Were you guys at any time pushing for 60fps? And was there a specific reason why you settled for 30 in the end?".

Confirmed? When was the resolution confirmed? Never heard a confirmation.

TRD4L1fe1535d ago

Well if this is true than I can see a certain group already crying parity and why one version isn't running at 60fps

Give_me_head_strong1535d ago

DX12 will bring Xbox One even closer to parity with PS4.

denawayne1535d ago

I think this is why it was pushed back. MS wants this game to be what Destiny was to PS4

HeMan761535d ago


Oh realy? They are the actual devs not the buisiness men
