@rainslacker you explanation is more detailed, but im not sure where you think mine is wrong.
It's hard to explain and this is just one of the benefits, but if you're playing a 64player battlefield game, your client(PC/xbox/PS4...) Has to keep track of that 63 other people are doing. In their scenario that is handled by servers much better equipped to handle that type of data. What it means is that instead of the typical 64 player limit in Battlefield we may see much higher numbers.
it needs to have a plaque reading "Hideo Kojima by Hideo Kojima"
we've had trouble reaching 1080p @60fps this gen, (2k @ 120fps) times 2, sounds like something for PS6, unless you lower the graphical quality by an substantial amount.
@Inzo "Also streaming services like Netflix are in financial trouble " Because the other big players(hbo,Hulu,Disney,Amazon ,apple) have seen that Netflix is sitting on a goldmine and want a piece of the action. "its because people are losing interest." Do you have an article or something that suggests this cause I'm finding nothing?
Would be like living in the middle of the Sahara desert and contemplating buying a boat....you simply wouldn't do it
you didn't specify which year.
I feel like some light is being shed, right now.
ill be using it tonight, since I sold my xbox, and im from the 70's
"because it will effect sony's numbers" I think most gamers already went out and bought a PS4, so if they want to play with someone on Switch/Xbox/PC they could save some money by not having to buy that system as opposed to what?..
Wouldn't they have to write those patches anyway? I can see Crossplay putting some added pressure to release those patches at the same time, but that more than likely means postponement thather than a rush to finish.
I'm going to be playing gears5 on PC with a friend on Xbox tonight, sold my xbox years ago.
"Lets all hold hands and sing Kumbaya. Its always been this way and it was never a problem." It's that same problem then as it is now, people just accepted it or weren't aware that is was a possibility. Cross play is not a killer feature but it benefits nearly everyone. It only seems to bother those who are focused on what theoretical impact it might have on the sales of whatever system they prefer.
"But it's still a shit game." "CrossPlay ain't gonna fix that." Uhm, I didnt know crossplay was trying to fix that???.
If only that was true.
But some of us do have interest in games that aren't mainly third person action games
I think I've updated drivers 5 times in 10 years on my PC, and it's been a pretty straight forward experience. I think I've spent more than double the time waiting for stability updates than I've spent on updating drivers.
Yeah it's a bit weird, I'll concede that has been like that, but I feel that was a decade ago.
The "Value for money" is highly subjective. Really depends on if you use your PC for other things than gaming.
