yeah, nothing came close to GT5's photo modes w/ premium cars in 2010....nothing...People always talk about PC racers from then, never once did I see anything backed up. The amount of time spent on each premium car was outrageous, and the attention to detail was unmatched...

but...that was one component of a bigger game...GT5 often looked like a ps2 game when actually being 'played'. Some of the recycled tracks were laughably low res, other 'new' on...

It's funny to me mostly because my very first discrete 3d card was an Nvidia Riva 128 in 1997, back when everything was 3dfx or gtfo...and it's driver support was abysmal...Had to wait almost a year before OpenGL support arrived to work properly with Quake 2 and QGL. I was nvidia only all the way up to Vista, and driver support then is not exactly something i'd call...stable...either.

My 280x is the very first AMD/ATI product I ever owned...bought it summer of 2...

Dcbronco: exactly

API's rule the PC industry; it is EXACTLY how Nvidia and AMD/ati remained to begin with...both were getting slaughtered by 3DFX and voodoo cards in the late 90's, but some shifts in API acceptance had both eat up a huge part of what 3dfx controlled with the glide api, and Nvidia literally bought them a year later...

technically, vulkan is mantle 2.0 more or less...but DX12 was also heavily influenced by it, and MS partnered with ...

GameNameFame:

I agree it wasn't the best analogy, but I should've mentioned I was more speaking on how the windows store would function as a distribution service only...not a 'platform'...It's kind of a given that a windows OS can't function as a closed gaming platform, or if attempted, would be rejected...only that software can be linked to a certain dist. channel.

As far as 3rd parties...I would never jump to conclusions on that....

Ah, idk...'93-'94 was when Seinfeld started to rearrange the TV industry, and Doom 1-2 was about as disruptive to gaming as anything in history...combining the 2 is wildly appropriate imo...

this back and fourth between PC and an MS console never would've sat well with developers because it would've involved porting and everything else...but with DX12 it is all one game; the xbox one, one S, and scorpio's are just PC's with weaker/better hardware as far as the api's are concerned...and since 95% of modern gaming is developed for PC anyway, it's merely a sca...

@ONESHOTV2, was that a reply to me, or someone else?

the Xbox One, or any xbox console, does not have exclusives any more...EVERYTHING is coming to windows 10 users on PC that have windows 10. Are you saying otherwise? I didn't say they were losing exclusives, and I pointed out that these games are coming only to a controlled windows 10 store, not steam...that comment had nothing to do with whether or not MS makes money 'either way'...This was, what MS considere...

not trying to sound like a dick...but:

you're saying they 'almost' care more about what makes like 98% of their profits? I think the Sony vs. MS rivalry around this site has some forget that both corporations are in very different financial situations...Playstation is Sony's life line...it's literally helped hold them out of the gutter for over a decade...and is absolutely critical to its survival...

but MS? Xbox isn't even close t...

The big question with scorpio remains how the 'service' works exactly. Will it be a traditional Xbox with it's own OS/dashboard, XBL, etc. Or will it be almost a steam machine type thing for the win 10 game/app store? It's unlikely to be a full PC, as in, I highly doubt scorpio will be able to access other distribution services like Steam, Battlenet, Origin, etc., but I also don't think it's going to be another 'xbox console' in the sense of what the first 3 we...

the base multiplayer is 'stellar' to you? Not an accusation, it's only that i'm on the exact opposite ground on the exact same game...Doom is a perfect example of a game i'm glad I skipped the season pass so far.

The single player is beyond stellar, imo, and snapmap has great potential...but the multiplayer is merely ok to me...no where close to as bad as the 'media' made it out to be, but not exactly fantastic either. The free updates coming to ...

but regardless of gaming on a PC vs. a console...that isn't, from what I gathered, what was 'silly' about it...

The underlying issue is MS trying to move a console like 'service' back to PC (they've done this before and it was laughed at from the beginning)...

MS is NOT bringing xbox games to 'PC'...they're bringing xbox games to a closed windows 10 store for PC's that use windows 10...Saying 'PC' implies fr...

I have only 8GB of 2133 DDR3 system ram, and a 3GB 280x w/ 384 bit bus and 289 GB/s througput.

I've never come close to eating up those 8gb's of system ram in ANY game. OS footprint size in gaming is rarely more than 4, and over 1 GB of that remains facking windows background related.

but Vram wise, i see the coming problems. Doom won't even allow trying the ultra nightmare visual settings without more than that

I'm on PC, and never understood the appeal of Halo coming to PC.

Its 'the' console shooter. Every single innovative thing it did was structured around a fully realized and deep fps being played with a controller. Success of fps games on consoles owe a large amount of that to the original Halo.

I like the games (especially 1,2, and 3), but my interest on PC versions of the series just isn't there. Mouse and keyboard DRASTICALLY rearranges ...
