Yeah I got the code too... I really can't decide what to use it on. If I thought Madden would be any good that'd be a no brainer but I expect it to largely be awful. NBA2K14 is pretty, but basketball doesn't interest me much... so it's between Killzone (and I already have Ghosts on PS4 and BF4 on PC) or NFS Rivals. Not sold on either.

I'm also feeling my interest level rising on Knack for PS4.    Does anyone have any impressions on that one?

Skylanders, without the different characters or toys. Apparently (as was stated above) that it is challenging on the hardest level.

It's still just running around smashing garbage cans/cars/etc to collect shards - but when you shrink down you can't reuse them. It's neat to see a particle-based character, but there doesn't feel like a lot of soul is in it. I dunno. I'd feel OK with my kid playing it, but it was far from the kind of gaming that compels me - and I like the SWAP Force game.

Also, the storyline (from what I've seen) is, well, Astroboy (the most recent movie).

Why are people thinking Madden will be bad?    I haven't seen any next gen reviews for it?

EA has been phoning in their sports games for a while.  Especially Madden where they have no competition.

I guessing it will probably have some new shineys, but not much of an improvement over the old gen version we got this year.  I skipped the old gen release, but may grab the XB1 version if I can get it for free.

Just cause we've seen so very, very little of it. I'd think if it was any good at all we'd be hearing/seeing a lot more.

Oh, well I knew that.   I just wondered if it was especially bad this year, or just normal updating of the rosters + a little next gen graphics or something.

Finally got to see the Xbox One in person today at Best Buy. (They still don't have a visible PS4 unit). First impressions were that it was smaller than I expected, as was the Kinect. Which is a good thing. Of course, everything looks smaller in Best Buy. I was trying to show my mom what a 42" TV looked like and walked immediately to the 50 inch TVs. Then I realized the 42 inch ones were the ones shoved in the back that looked like computer monitors.





At the Best Buy near me they just have the mock XBone....that is like a XBone that has been cut in half and placed In one of those plastic bubble demo units. It's made to look like the real thing, but it's not. It just runs a demo video. I had heard that the only actual demo units were in Microsoft stores.

How many of you are taking Friday off to take shipment of your PS4?

Can't take Friday's off, my hours are 4pm til midnight and I'm the only one scheduled to work Friday swing shift.

UPS usual delivery for my house is around 5pm so the box will have to sit there on the stoop unless the wife is home and grabs it.

Same for the Xbox the week after but I'm not too worried, my house is off the street and you would have to walk past 4 other houses to get to mine, never had a problem with missing stuff.

retire already! (oh yeah, and move to Indy)  ninja

20 months to go, I promise to ride my motorcycle through Indy on my way to South America.

Usually. What generally happens is that they improve the visuals a bit but then remove most of the features (e.g. game modes, AI (although Madden doesn't have much of that anyway), etc.) that are in the current gen version.

Is it too late to post more resokutiongate news? I'll just leave this here so that TiLT doesn't need to. I have no idea how reputable this website or this Marcus character is though so take it with a grain of salt. Too bad we couldn't just have all the reviews at once and then then there would be no rumors.

While the rumor is believable enough, I wouldn't exactly call those great sources. Marcus Beer is reasonably trustworthy, but the way in which he delivered that comment made the whole thing seem kind of... vague. Not that it matters much. We're likely to get a final overview of resolutions tomorrow for most launch games, I would think.

If it were true, it wouldn't matter as much with AC4 since that game is still cross gen, not going to make best use of these consoles.

Plus it's click bait from a less known site.

On the whole this was a decently non biased article.   They mention the report that the graphics suffer on the Xbone but go on to explain how devs are having to get used to the architecture.    It's frightening how similar this gen launch is to the last gen.  The difference is that the systems flipped roles.

I make mental note that the PS3 turned out to be my favorite of the past gen.  Can M$ do that with the Xbone?

I wouldn't go as far to say it sucks. It's similar to the XMB. It also didn't go very in depth at all into it. I want to see more of the UI before I pass judgement.

I hate the Metro style of the Xb1 UI....but I wouldn't say it sucks. I just hate the look of it and the whole activity feed thing they have. It just looks way too much like Windows 8, which I can't stand. It's a functional UI though. It's just too bad they had to reserve 10% of the GPU to run it.  frown

My store had a display.  To me, it looked like the unit just slid into the cardboard display behind it, not that it was cut in half.  It was just running videos, though, same as the PS4 display.

I was actually at Best Buy on Saturday and I got some playtime with the PS4.  I played some mining game which was pretty fun in short time I spent with it.  They also had the XB1 but no game demo just videos running. 

I did like the feel of the PS4 Dual Shock controller in my huge hands, but I like MS and Sony's controller

AC4 looks worse on XB1

http://gearnuke.com/multiple-sources-hint-assassins-creed-iv-black-flag-sub-1080p-xbox-one/

Quote
Last week, we brought you news of Bungie’s Destiny possibly running at a sub-1080p on the Xbox One in its alpha phase, based on the words of a tester.

 It appears that the latest entrant in Ubisoft’s popular franchise, Assassin’s Creed, suffers a similar fate on Microsoft’s next-gen console. During the latest episode of his weekly show, Annoyed Gamer, game journalist Marcus Beer briefly talks about a visible difference between the two next-gen console versions of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. According to him, the Xbox One version looks “fuzzier” and “strained”, while the PS4 version looks “sharper”, “crisper”, and has “better draw distances”.

Sounds like there is another victim of the Xb1's ESRAM.... frown

So tired of resolutiongate. How many of these people so worried about 180p difference every made sure they bought the latest $700 video card for their PC so they got the absolute best graphic experience possible for every PC game?

At this point I'll gladly take the slight graphic depreciation in exchange for Xbox Fitness, the UI, the voice integration, and actual games to play on launch day that don't start with Killzone or Knack.

I'll be so glad when Friday gets here so the PS4 fanboys will be too busy jacking off to their new PS4 to worry about posting shit about the Xbox.

This isn't about people calmly talking about how to get the most out of their TV. Please. And I'm not referring to this forum specifically. I'm talking about the wider internet celebration every time a resolution difference is spotted and hundreds of PS4 fans gleefully pile on to celebrate another small victory in their penis console comparison contest.

Just for reference.

For a real-world example, would it be apt to compare the way an over-the-air HD broadcast looks compared to a blu-ray movie?

Finally got to see the Xbox One in person today at Best Buy. (They still don't have a visible PS4 unit). First impressions were that it was smaller than I expected, as was the Kinect. Which is a good thing. Of course, everything looks smaller in Best Buy. I was trying to show my mom what a 42" TV looked like and walked immediately to the 50 inch TVs. Then I realized the 42 inch ones were the ones shoved in the back that looked like computer monitors.





At the Best Buy near me they just have the mock XBone....that is like a XBone that has been cut in half and placed In one of those plastic bubble demo units. It's made to look like the real thing, but it's not. It just runs a demo video. I had heard that the only actual demo units were in Microsoft stores.


they have yet to come to the boonies.

It's not that great a difference because it's being upscaled to 1080p. It's not just running 900p flat.

There's no way anyone is noticing a difference between 900p upscaled and native 1080p without standing 2-3 feet away doing a side by side comparison. And even then most people would not be able to tell.

Differences in lighting/textures/draw distances between the two consoles? Sure, I can buy that. But people are confusing resolution with other things that have absolutely nothing to do with resolution.

P.S. A lot of my frustration comes from this - people (random internet people in general) just don't understand what they're jawing about.
