This probably doesn't help the XBox's chances in Europe.

Quote
The Xbox One's TV integration suffers noticeable judder in the UK, tests have revealed.

Website HDTVTest.co.uk first flagged up the problem, which occurs when you run a live TV feed from your set-top box, such as a Freeview HD, Sky or Virgin Media box, into Microsoft's console using the HDMI-in port.

The UK and Europe use a 50Hz broadcasting system. The Xbox One outputs at 60Hz, so if you feed it a 50Hz HDMI source, one out of every six frames will be a duplicate, causing judder.



Since they already have put out at least one console in Europe previously, I'm pretty sure they know about this. As whenever Sony or other TV makers sell their products in Europe, they don't suddenly forget we use PAL where others use NTSC for instance. It'll be fine I'm sure.

If you want something damaging to MS when they do decided to release here in the Nordic countries, it will most probably be that pretty much none of their apps or their extra content has any use here. I'll be happy to be proven wrong, but...I'm rather sure I'm not.

You are missing State of Decay: Breakdown (PC), which released the 29th, and which I'm SO buying!

I'm unsure whether it will release on Xbox at that time as well.

Don't buy this. The Big Battles are insanely boring, and just consists of you running from one end of the map to the other, clicking on people. Thats it. Its just reskinned skirmises, but without you do combat in them. There is no new armor, no new anything other than an area to quest in. Of course, quests by now consists of doing grinds, fed-ex's or kill X of some monsters in LOTRO expansions.  

The updates from Turbine are getting worse and worse, I'm afraid. The landscape content is...not good right now. Pretty much every single class can wade through it without breaking a sweat by now.

well, it'll probably be 10 hours or so before my XB1 gets here, and thanks to idiots not knowing how to read a calendar (or outright lying about when certain events were actually happening, right now it could go either way), my weekend of XB1 goodness may have just been shot to hell.

Are you still scheduled to get today?

yeah, it is still due today.  it's people coming to town for the holidays earlier than expected that are being a pain in my ass.  I'm looking forward to sharing that pain with the person who is partially responsible for this mix up next week.

There is an ugly rumor right now about Ryse featuring a lot of Microtransactions in-game.
No rumors please. We only allow facts in this thread.

Which is why the video in question was linked, as I was unable to view it myself. Is that okay?
169  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: November 21, 2013, 10:13:26 AM
Thanks Zinfan...not something I like to hear. I'm pretty sure this isn't restricted to just Xbox, but is something that will be on other consoles as well, if people start utilizing that option.

There is an ugly rumor right now about Ryse featuring a lot of Microtransactions in-game. Crimson Dragon apparently also features this. I can't view this video review myself due to video not working on this computer, but apparently he reviews Ryse and tells about these Microtransactions. (http://n4g.com/news/1397497/xbox-one-review-adam-sessler-reviews).

Anyone have any idea if this is true? I really don't want my console games to have this crap as well, especially not after I purchase games for full price. I know this is a completely different discussion, but I feel the industry is going in a direction I really don't want, with microtransactions, and in-game purchases for real money, even in full-price games. It started with MMO's (Or rather, Horse armor from Bethesda), and it should stay there, and no creep into my single player games.

I often lament the fact that I probably won't get a new console until sometime in 2014, but then again, the big games I'm very interested in are coming out for PC and not until early 2014 at best either. The Division and Watch Dogs. Well, three if you count Titanfall which I probably will.

Surprised that Zoo Tycoon is getting decent scores.  By decent I mean 70 is like a blockbuster score for a tycoon game.  Tongue

Polygon loved it, and I would REALLY like to try it out myself.

Berlin DLC titled Dragonfall and will be released Jan 2014.  Free to backers and cost 14.99 to everyone else

Thats a bit steep! The game itself wasn't very long, and had its fair share  of problems, and they want 14.99 for the expansion? Not going to happen in my case.
181  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What is the worst game you've ever played? on: November 19, 2013, 07:23:39 AM
Without Hyperbole, since this is all subjective, I have to say Rome: Total War 2.

I'm surprised no-one talks about Zoo Tycoon? Thats actually a game I would really love to try out. I know its Kinect only, but I can live with that, if its a good tycoon/sim game. It would be fun with the kids as well, but I love the game type so I'd be sure to play it on my own as well.

Thats actually a game I would think could surprise a lot of people from what I've seen so far. Polygon seems to love it as well! http://www.polygon.com/2013/11/18/5113046/zoo-tycoon-review

Well, perhaps this waiting till next year thing isn't so bad, if there are serious issues to be ironed out with the PS4. Lets hope its just a software issue and not hardware related.

Nothing! Yes, Nothing! Because MS has decided I am not suave enough to get an Xbox One...THIS ENTIRE YEAR!

ahem...anyways, I don't think I'll be getting anything :-)
186  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS4 LAUNCH DAY!!!! Which system are you getting? on: November 15, 2013, 03:10:43 PM
Ive always found it interested that in these days, where heat is more and more prevalent in hightech machines, not limited to consoles and computers, why we still insist on the boxes to hold the electronics? I mean, why not make a clever tube where the components where more seperate from each other? Or hell, make 5 smaller units to be put behind the stereo system to avoid heat?

I know the above are somewhat silly, but its just extremely limiting to keep thinking that  we have to have all our electronics in one box - plenty of other options, especially if it could help what seems to be one of the larger issues.
187  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rumored Fallout Teaser on: November 15, 2013, 03:03:06 PM
But surely that cannot be? I remember the outcry when Elder Scrolls online was announced, that this was the end of new episodes in the Elder Scrolls and Fallout series.

In my household there is a clear winner - Mass Effect.

I think my GF has played the games combined for about 150 hours or so, and I have about the same time put into the games.

We are eagerly awaiting the next series in the franchise!

Seems like the solution should be positive ps4 and negative xbone news in the ps4 thread, and the opposite in the xbone thread. Then everyone will be happy!

You must be mad - Then NO-ONE would be happy!

I'm quite sad that I won't be getting a new console until next year. Why is the world so cruel? Then I think of all the people who are worse off than me, and I start smiling again.

A combined review for two competing non-similiar systems is a bit weird, isnt it?

Not if the excellent developers for 2K were able to actually code decently for both machines.   There appears to be no difference in the two.

Thats true of course! I just haven't seen a single game where they compare exactly in the current (Last gen?) generation of consoles where this is the case.

I have both an Xbox and a PS3, and I always read reviews before getting a new console game, because there's just been a huge difference every time between the two versions.

What's not a chance? If you think something you received in a PM is inappropriate, you dump that in a public forum as a derail? That's Code of Conduct work, bub. If you act inappropriately, even if it's due to someone else acting inappropriately, you're responsible for your own actions.

That's not me talking as staff either - in the forums I'm the same as anyone else, and I can tell you that if you're going to take PM's public as a means of calling someone out - there's a complete lack of respect for other forum members including the readers of the forum.

Hey, Bub - I posted what I did for a reason. If you dislike that, pm a mod if thats what you want. I simply do not want to have any contact with the guy through pm's anymore, so he can say anything he wants here. Thats it.

From the "source" perspective - when I read TiLT's message (IIRC it was TiLT, I'm going off others comments at this point) I had a reply typed up of "Source? slywink" so it's not only Chris who thought that.

Hell, my last couple replies provided nothing BUT source as part of providing perspective.

I think Chris, and anyone addressing Chris, need to cool off a bit and stop with dramatic accusations of "creepy PMs" and the like. That stuff? If you really think there's a problem with the conduct, going to the forum publicly is bad idea. You take that to a mod instead, otherwise it's referencing something that none of us were, or want to be, exposed to directly. The P in PM is "PRIVATE".

Keep it that way.


Not a chance.
