Dolby Surround Sound will be patched  


Anyway, I think that's what is said... Audio stuff isn't my forte, but it sounds like the HDMI uncompressed signal is still being sent to the receiver and is being interpreted


Anyone?

Quote from: Albert Pennello MS Director of Product Planning
Dolby Digital is coming post launch. This was a SW scheduling issue pure and simple, and I know people are disappointed, but we will have it.

Anyone with an HDMI receiver should be fine, as we pass the uncompressed 5.1 and 7.1 through HDMI as well as DTS. Even if you have a Dolby only HDMI receiver (which I'm not sure exists), you will still get 5.1 or 7.1 sound since those receivers should accept uncompressed surround.

For the Dolby only headsets, my understanding is that these will work but you will only get stereo audio since we only pass Stereo and DTS through the optical port. I have not tested this myself, but I'm told it works. Regardless, I understand this is an inconvenience, but again we're going to have Dolby coming.

This is unrelated to the HDMI-IN "Surround Sound" beta. To clarify, we default HDMI-IN audio to be converted to Stereo. However, we do have a feature you can access in TV settings/Troubleshooting that enables Surround Sound in "beta" form. If you check the box, and you get Surround, you're golden. We found some inconsistencies in STB's during testing and decided to disable it by default to insure a good initial setup experience for people

This surprises no one paying attention, Orland has been writing lots of articles playing down any good PS4 news or advantage, I mean if he was posting here in the same manner but reversed, you all would be FLIPPING OUT.

But if you held a gun to my head and said I had to pick a system today, I'd probably point toward the Xbox One—primarily for its game lineup and partly for its interface and the still-in-their-infancy media features. (Also, I'm not currently budget-conscious enough to mind the price difference too much.) Once you calmed down and lowered the gun, though, I'd tell you to wait and see.

Bone is getting huge exposure on CNN today.   They have folks reporting from a room with live actors dressed as gladiators and zombies.   Also showing footage of the zombies walking around New York.

Big time exposure to non-hardcore gamer groups.

On a side note:

My amazon.com order is still showing 'shipping now', but I've yet to receive tracking information.    By this time last week I had tracking information for my PS4.    I've elevated my concern to level 8 out of 10.

Don't sweat it. A buddy of mine didn't get his tracking info for his PS4 from Amazon until about 8:00pm the night before launch and he still got it on time.

Hell, I've had them send me shipping confirmations AFTER the thing was on my doorstep.

http://news.xbox.com/2013/11/games-crimson-dragon-updates


this is the one panned for the heavy influence of micro-transactions as the reviews said that most upgrades were so expensive you had to grind lower levels to save up for them, with the caveat that the same resources were also spent to replay those levels.

from Polygon
Quote
If you do decide to grind, you have to pay credits every time you take on a mission, so the returns will be muted. A couple of times I accidentally cleaned myself out buying upgrades and had to grind an earlier free mission until I had enough to pay to play the level I actually needed to finish. Infuriating.

I wonder if this makes the overall experience more enjoyable.

yeah, the biggest similarity between all of these reviews is that neither is as good as people hoped they would be or expect they will be in 2-3 years time.  is it amazing or sad that after 7-8 years we still expect more out of the next gen than what they're giving us?  makes me wonder what the next gen after will have and whether we will be happy to have it or only compare to some unrealistic goal?  it's the early-adopter tax and we happily pay it as the flaws generally work themselves out over time, but not so much that we regret our purchase.

Both consoles will make it worth the cost over time I think.   I never regretted my original purchases of 360 and PS3.    Well...maybe a little when my original 360 red-ringed.    Hope there isn't a fatal flaw like that this time around with either of them.
