Let me know if this is old rubbish news I'll gladly delete it.

I don't know if the dates from the site are their post date or the actual news announcment date. I hear so much talk of these chips I can't tell the difference between wishful thinking and actual fact.

SuperSaiyan45890d ago

The CPU and GPU are both said to be hitting 65nm so what sense would it make having the eDRAM at 90nm?? *Scratches head* just a bit confused on this one.

BIadestarX5890d ago

I think I can help you with that. Sony fans only talk about GPU and CPU being at 65nm.... simply because they know the xbox 360 does not have them.... They ignore the other thousands of important components including memory...
We don't know much about the xbox 360 and sure as hell no of us quality to give an accurate solution to the xbox 360 RROD.. though many here pretend to know everything. The fact is that every compontent that gets improved it adds to the overall performance and quality of the console. CPU and GPU may not be the problem... it can be the memory... or the capacitors, the resistors, transistors, etc.
Let the pro do the thinking.... unless ofcourse one of us want to give us the release day for their own console.

Ahhhh5890d ago

only if i knew what yall was talking bout=/ is 65nm (what is Nm?) better than 90nm?

BIadestarX5890d ago

They are talking about embedded DRAM(Memory) not CPU or GPU... many hardware devices never get this upgraded... this is a plus... it will reduce power consumption and heat.... everything add up... when falcom is released... it will run the coolest it can be.

I disagree that max is unlikable. Chloe is infinitely more unlikable in my opinion.

gold_drake1d 19h ago

omg chloe was awful. i really hated her at the end haha

Cacabunga1d 13h ago

Abby was absolute trash protagonist in every way..
Tidus was so meh to me..
On villain side, the one i didn’t like wa Micah, because they wanted him to be that way and it was brilliant👍🏽

Rancegamerx1d 16h ago

I agree, I liked Max, Chloe was a horrible friend and a bad influence.

Cacabunga1d 9h ago

Everyone agrees on chloe, I’m sure even ND do.

H91d 12h ago

Both are horrible, granted Chloe is infinitely worse, it feels like Chloe is just fanservice for people who too over the edge and wasn't written to be a character that makes sense

MrChow6661d 14h ago

exactly I was expecting it to be a the top of the list

ravens521d 13h ago

Ye I was expecting her too. Guess they actually played the game. Unlike you and whoever agrees.

gpimlott18h ago

I played through the whole game and think she is one of the worst character Ive ever played as

ravens5216h ago(Edited 16h ago)

gpimlott. How?

Christopher1d 11h ago (Edited 1d 11h ago )

She's actually not bad. It's the writing itself that is bad overall, but she's fine overall. She's no worse than Miles Morales IMHO. Both thrust into a spotlight and receiving both praise and blame and dealing with it.

Forspoken is a bland game because it's 75% bland, boring, repetitive going through the motions and diversions that add nothing of the value with purposefully gated memory moments that don't feel organic or like you're discovering things but waiting for others to reveal things.

ravens521d 10h ago

Exactly Chris. Even though I liked the game. I kno u played it. People who actually played it and went thru her dream saw she was a good likeable person who really just acted out due to being alone and unloved. I think your problem is it was open world, I think if it was more linear you may have liked it better.

savedsynner1d 8h ago

Oh no she's bad. Very unlikable even before you add on the bad dialogue. The game could have been quite good with a good protagonist

ravens5221h ago

For all the people like synner. Shes actually half white lol. Inferior complexity is a hell of a thing. You'll be ok.

Nerdmaster1d 22h ago

Most of these aren't even that bad. Especially comparing to others like Squall "Whatever" Leonhart, Forspoken's Frey, and the guy from Atomic Heart.

-Foxtrot1d 16h ago

Squall is one of the best developed main FF characters so...

People talk about his "whatever" thing thats at the start of the game, not the character he eventually becomes in the end.

Nerdmaster1d 4h ago

No amount of "character development", (especially the ones that for me feels sudden and undeserved like Squall's), will justify him being a d**k to my girl Quistis. Even if he found the cure for cancer, from that moment on, I would never like him.
The article is about being unlikeable, and he was indeed unlikeable for at least half of the game.

BrainSyphoned1d 15h ago

Squall is the best protagonists in FF so you can go whatever yourself.

H91d 12h ago

My good sir, I need to steal that "you can go whatever yourself" because it's gold

BlaqMagiq11d 14h ago

Except Squall has actual character development.
