Also from the article:

"The difference is actually pretty substantial, with loads of new particle effects and high-res textures making the game look significantly better on PS4. I played the original game on PC, and while I'm guessing that version won't be all that different from next-gen, I'm still seeing some differences here even compared to the PC version"

They need to compare it to the PC version to really make it worthwhile.

It looks like the PS4 version is using TressFX which, for  a lot of people, causes a major performance hit. Impressive for the PS4.

My dog is a Dutch Shepherd and she looks like a cross between hyena and a brown wolf. So, yes she can be a bit terrifying if you saw her out in the wild. While I was out walking her one afternoon I ran into a family that was hanging out in their drive-way with their daughter. As I was passing them from across the street the little girl started to cry and shouted "That's a badass doggy!" The parents encouraged her fear by saying, "Yes that is a badass doggy." *sigh*

Finally got to play some yesterday. It is cool to see names I recognize on the track. I've never seen Hark. I guess he may not be on my friends list anymore (or maybe he is too good for the game to incluide him). Sparhawk is the only name I recognize that has beaten me. If his Drivatar is getting full payouts, he shoul dbe making bank.

To the rest of you, I apologize if you see me on the track, just try to stay away from me. biggrin

GETTING FAT STACKS OF DAT MAD MONEY!

Is there a way for me to follow people when I'm not at my Xbox?

Are we constantly being monitored? My dog, Jedi, is a scary lady and might make children cry. I don't wanna get banned!

This is what Jedi looks like:



Same color pattern but a little more black hair than the one in the photo. Not scary, CUTEY!

I wonder if it is possible for my dog to accidentally turn on the Xbox One?

It was so fun racing against everyone's drivatars yesterday. I bumped the difficulty up because I was getting number 1 too much and didn't feel like I was working to win. The difference is very noticeable! I can dive into corners and not worry about rear ending the bots because the drivatars are also going into the corners at speed. ALso the increased credits are nice too. It really feels like I'm racing against people and seeing the drivatars race against EACH OTHER and not just me is refreshing.

My live name is Sparhawk GT so if anyone doesn't have me on their list go ahead and follow me.  icon_biggrin

I own both the PS4 and the Xbox One now. My impression of the Xbox One is that it feels like a next generation system whereas the PS4 feels like a PS3 with better graphics.

 The hardware that MS presents to us feels better built, and they included a proper headset. When I saw those cheap little ear buds that Sony included with the PS4 I tossed them.  The Azure (Microsoft's cloud) network is effing fast, much faster than PSN. It was rock solid on launch day with no connectivity issues and everything I watched streamed beautifully. (The Wolverine is really good.) Also, after seeing the Xbox One in person, it looks better than the PS4.  The Xbox One's UI is way better than what Sony is doing with their PS4 in my opinion, and the Kinect is a hoot!

The ONLY thing that Sony has going for it is a marginal advantage in gaming performance, and in time I think the devs will close that gap even further. Even now, it's hard to see the difference between the games. With a TV that is properly configured, it's near impossible without doing side-by-side comparisons.

Also, I noticed that the Xbox One supports 36-bit color depth, does the PS4 or is it locked at 24-bit?

And a tip for those of you who are watching blu-ray's on the xbox one, go to the settings menu and make sure to turn on the 24fps setting for blu-ray playback.

If your TV supports 36-bit color depth (if it is an HDTV made in the past 6 years it should) then turn that on and also PC (RGB Full) for wide gamut colors.

For the better. My depression is under control and I've found out that I don't need to be "perfect" for someone to love me. It took a long time -over 20 years-  I finally can love myself for who I am.

I even have my drinking under control. I no longer drink to get hammered. Ever.

I did not take up smoking again as I feared I would after I stopped drinking like a fish. I eat a bit more than usual because I found out that I love to cook food. Seriously, guys, BLUE BERRY MUFFINS are the shit when made from scratch. And smoking meats is a lot of fun.

I'm a person who is loved by others.

That was something I couldn't see... And it nearly killed me.

It's cool to read everyone's stories and to see how much we've all grown through the years. We're all sorta, like, a family. Ceekay bot included.

Just a heads up: The latest patch for AC IV introduces texture flickering for some users. The fix is to delete the patch at this time.

Edit: This only affects PS4 users from what I'm hearing.

No it isn't.  It's 900p.

Also, it apparently has trouble hitting 30 fps.

It still looks smooth to me. It is frame locked at 30 fps and most games dip below their targeted fps. If it says 1080p60fps then that game is probably hovering around 48-56(as an example) fps on average unless it is optimized to run at a steady 60fps, but not a lot of games are designed that way.

If you guys don't think MS is worried about RRoD v.2 then you can see this article about what's inside the XB1

Btw, looks like you can change the drive, but you'll be voiding your warranty if you do



yeah, that looks like it would be fairly simple.  of course, getting the OSs and not getting banned from XBL would be two concerns.

I'm scared to mess with the internals of my consoles. "It's the way they designed it; leave it alone." I've seen how easy it is to replace the PS4 HDD but I'm worried that Sony's software might not be compatible with whatever Hybrid/HDD I would use.

Nothing.

I purchased Rocksmith 2014 (PC) last week and I am in love! It's so completely awesome to practice chords, scales, tremelo effects, in a game format. 20/30/60 minutes of practice just zings by so fast!
Rocksmith and Final Fantasy 14 will hold me over until the next-gen launches in November.

I've purchased the PS4 and the Xbox One.
