1  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: April 19, 2014, 10:07:23 PM

Quote from: Ridah on April 18, 2014, 08:05:09 PM

It'll probably sell better on the 360 than the XB1, plus it was made by a smaller staff than a lot of AAA teams (like Infinity Ward or Irrational) so it shouldn't need to sell as much to make its money back.

Probably not for EA since Microsoft seemed to do all the marketing and hype for them in attempting to sell Xbox Ones.

I'll try to stay out of this one (I've already made my view clear on DX12), but I'll say this: For Brad's sake, I hope he was either misquoted or taken out of context.

The only way the quotes make sense is if they are about the PC were DirectX has been a bone of contention with developers for years as becoming to bloated and inefficient. Hence we get the announcement of Mantle and now DX12.

He's not saying Xbox One sucks he's simply pointing out that on the technical specs level there is a clear difference. That's the simple truth that many continually try to distort. Does that automatically mean the PS4 will "win" and have better games? No of course not.

Much as I like the show they have so many story threads it seems like more get diminished and forgotten. Malcom Merlin pops back alive with the secret father link but then poof he's gone. The city politician that's running for mayor who moonlights looking like scarecrow(don't know if that's who he's actually supposed to be) while working with Slade but he's disappeared too. Also they kinda wasted Summer Glau as a guest by having her just bat a few eyelashes and trade some barbs with Oliver. The writers could do a better job planning the story out and not leave so many dangling plotlines.

Going for half off a month after release? Must be some pretty disappointing sales numbers for them.

Wouldn't be surprised to see it on PS+ before the end of the year.

I got the Sony Gold Wireless ones and I've been happy with them. They are pretty much plug and play on the PS4, PS3, and work fine on PC too. They sound good and fit well. For $99 bucks I think they are a good buy for a Playstation gamer(and PC too)

Until this happens for either platform I will be still disc for major games. I don't live where there's really fast internet so a 20-40+ GB game will take me a long time. STEAM's done this for years so I don't know why both of these new console's shouldn't be able to.

I find it funny that people won't buy Titanfally because it's multiplayer-only.  I can understand the preference for playing a single player game (I'm usually in that camp), but saying that a multiplayer game doesn't have enough meat without single player is silly.  I find it easy to play a multiplayer game like Battlefield many, many times longer than I can put up with their mediocre single player.

I remember buying the first Starsiege: Tribes 15 years ago as my first multiplayer-only game and that felt risky, but these days I'm surprised more games don't do it. 

Same. I've gotten hundreds of hours from the Battlefield games going back to BF 1942 playing only MP.

That's a pretty weak straw man argument he makes. So yea you get to keep playing the game even if you stop paying for Gold on your Xbox..oh and you will also lose online, and access to all the apps/services that are behind the paywall. How many are going to do that? All of these console platforms frankly pretty much require the subscription part if you really want to use them how they were designed.

Titanfall is EXCLUSIVE on the Xbox One among consoles.   

The 360 says Hi. Maybe next time.

I could say the same about all those indie games just listed on PSN - most of those have been on PC forever. However I constantly see those as being held up as examples of PS4 "exclusives." Guess that Sony PR works pretty well too.


Was I trying to tout those as PS4 exclusives? Hmm I don't think so dude. Nice try though. Maybe next time.

When do the PS4 exclusives start rolling out?   I really want to spend more time with the system, but so far the exclusives have mostly been over in Xbox One's corner for me (Ryse, Titanfall, Dead Rising).

Yea that Titanfall exclusive...I guess all that MS PR does work on people thinking its only on Xbox One.

PS4 did 322k over the weekend for the Japan launch.  Seems decent but not amazing. 

Here's how it compares to other console launches there

1998.11.27 [Sega Dreamcast] (29.800) - 101.490 (3 days)
2000.03.04 [Sony PlayStation 2] (39.800) - 630.552 (2 days)
2001.09.14 [Nintendo GameCube] (25.000) - 133.719 (3 days)
2002.02.22 [Microsoft XBox] (34.800) - 123.929 (3 days)
2005.12.10 [Microsoft XBox 360] (29.000 / 39.795) - 62.135 (2 days)
2006.11.11 [Sony PlayStation 3] (49.980 / 59.980) - 88.443 (2 days)
2006.12.02 [Nintendo Wii] (25.000) - 371.936 (2 days)
2012.12.08 [Nintendo Wii U] (26.250 / 31.500) - 308.570 (2 days)

Not unexpected considering how the Japanese home console market has shrunk over there.

It's still a very well-written and -acted soap opera and I don't disparage anybody for liking it. Maggie Smith alone is worth the price of admission. I just stopped caring about it.

You can't leave out the Grandmother/Duchess. Her couple of one liners and facial expressions she gets every show are some of the best stuff on TV.

Curious about this. When the title, "soap opera" is given to a show what does that mean to you?
To me its always conjured up images of over acted, poorly directed, cheap sets and B rank and file actors.

I don't see Downton in that light. That's why I'd like to know others definition of the phrase.

I guess the definition means the shows plots come from the personal likes/dislikes of characters with each other. So its all about this character hates that one, and this character is in love with this one etc. and the plots about outside stuff like WW I aren't' there as much. For example the love triangle stuff that has been going on with the 2 young girl cooks(Daisy and Ivy) and the valet would be an example of a 'soap opera' plot I'd say.

I officially bailed on this show effective with tonight's episode. I started to lose interest -- and the show started to wander -- when WW1 ended. Then a few weeks ago they threw in a subplot that was completely gratuitous because they felt like a particular character (OK, Anna...if you're watching you know what I'm talking about) was too happy or needed some conflict. It crossed completely into soap opera territory at that point. Now that The Walking Dead is back on the same day and time, I am done with Downton.

The first two seasons were really good, I'll give it that.

You leave Downton cause of lost interest but watch the Walking Dead? That show stopped being good after the first season.
29  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Annual Installments discussion on: February 09, 2014, 06:23:07 AM
First several of those titles listed don't have annual releases. Second series like CoD and AC are at the top of the sales charts every year. So while some here don't like the development choices the fact is they have made the publishers massive revenues.

I felt it was just okay.  It felt too politically correct though in that they created multiple women of power when the reality of the time was far more misogynistic. 

Except they turn right around and have two of the main chicks have a lesbo scene right away. There's promise here and I realize there's going to be a certain amount the sex cause its Starz, but they need to take a look at other premium cable channels like HBO and Showtime that can have adult content without always going to titillation for viewers.

Trying to ignore framerate and resolution as factors to enjoyable experience just comes off as sour grapes from the party with the weaker system. The bottom line is this is happening with multiple games, its not some anomaly. Its the simple truth of these two systems. How much of a factor depends on the person.

Yeah, because all those people who bought a Wii bought it because of the killer resolutions and frame rates.  Roll Eyes

Most people buy consoles for the games, period. Most gamers don't know WTF a frame rate is, or what resolutions are. You're applying your technical expertise to the population as a whole. Case in point, the "vastly inferior" 720p version of Call of Duty sold more copies on XB1 than PS4 in December.

I definitely don't have any sour grapes considering I've put in nearly 100 hours in XB1 exclusives I couldn't have played had I gone with the PS4. Likewise, I'll be buying a PS4 later it's year when they actually have something besides indie titles to play.




Sure dude. You first try and give examples to disprove the power difference while admitting they aren't good examples, then just say "well it doesn't matter anyways" pretty much the definition of it.

As for the Wii it sold allot fast then its sales fell off fast(look it up), and all those people didn't stick with Nintendo seeing the Wii U bombing in sales. Not a good example. As for people buying consoles for games...wow what a statement. As for more copies of CoD on the One yea its was more but it used to be far more in the 360 vs PS3. Its far closer now and that's the point you conveniently ignore.


In the end its a fact there is a power difference between the two. There's no disputing it. Whether that matters to a gamer is a personal choice but saying that people who think frame rate and resolution don't matter aren't gamers is just lame.

I've gotten well over 100 hours on my PS4 already. IMO I didn't see anything on the One for exclusives worth playing.
Different strokes.

Not true. Forza 5, FIFA and NBA 2K14 run full 1080p/60fps. I will grant you those are sports titles and presumably may not be as difficult to get to run as smooth as an action shooter.

At any (frame)rate, all I know is Dead Rising 3 ran at 720p and 30fps and I had a freaking blast with that game. If you're basing your enjoyment of a game on framerate and resolution, you're doing it (gaming) wrong.

We can look back to the first two Xbox's and how many fanboys tried to tout games as superior graphics wise for years over the PS2/PS3 when it came to multiplat titles.

It doesn't make sense that the Xbox gap is so bad from a hardware standpoint that it's forcing devs into 30fps vs 60fps decisions. The XB1 has games - even multi-platform games - that run at 60fps.

What does this mean? Well, it means a respectable amount of extra GPU power will be available to devs, which will be of particular use when it comes to cross-platform titles. It's somewhat bad news for fans of the Kinect though, as this also means that devs will now have to make a choice between Kinect support or more GPU, and I don't think Kinect is going to win that battle very often.


It will help but its not going to stop the multiplatform titles we see being 1080p vs 720p, or 60 vs 30 fps.

Black Tusk were originally supposed to be developing a new IP to alternate years with Halo, but now it looks like they are just going to be the Gears shop.  What they showed at E3 has now been said to have just been concept work, and didn't represent an actual game in development.

Well that's sort of what Gears was on the 360. Get Halo one year and a Gears game the next. I also feel its not quite the franchise anymore MS thinks it is. They would be better of trying to lock up Titanfall beyond the initial game and pair it with Halo like Gears was last generation.
