What about Unity?

That game wasn't cross gen and it had plenty of problems.

i just see that as a way to hype and tease the next far cry.

these games suffer from the same illness, trying to ship products on time instead of delaying them until they are as good as possible. you can also ship games on cross gen platforms without issues. it's called separate development teams.

Problems =/= development decisions

It suffered from ubisoftitus, a rare medical condition that is passed on from each ubisoft game to the next whilst becoming more virulent.

A most terrible disease.

Glad that haven't started an TV ad appeal.

Pls donate just £50 every few months so we can help keep this terrible condition going all the way through to the next gen of consoles. Thank you. Lmao

Something any knowledgeable gamer would've known already. But even then, the new machines are causing compromises to potential as well.

I've had no issues with Far Cry 4. The game looks and runs great on my Xbox one. Viewing the game clips on my Surface look spectacular.

Kstahp. I don't think you get what they're saying, yes the game plays well on your XB1 and looks pretty good, but it could have looked better, possibly played better and had a lot of new features rather than being a cut and paste of far cry 3 due to the technical restraints of last generation.

Which division of MS pays you to advertise the Surface?

kstap332385d ago

I wish. Just staying a fact.
