Has anyone seen any community challenges on the PS4? I've been playing this game since the European launch, and I haven't seen ANY community challenges. I haven't found any on my own to share, and none have been shared with me. I have plenty of people in my friends list who play this game regularly.
A few convoys and whales as well as chests.  Is your friends list over 100, I understand UPlay may have some issues if the PS4 friends list is higher than that.

So then there are two problems: one is that Ms needs to tweak their upscaler.

Two is that the devs who are using it should be selective about which features they count on.

not sure how ubi let that through QA as is.  maybe they can spend the effort next time around and make a better upscaler.  or, better yet, get performance up to 1080p without sacrificing details.  are there any other multi-plat games that use the native upscaler? 

It's not just an UBI issue.  Killer Instinct which is an MS published exclusive has the issue as well.  Pretty much anything that isn't native 1080p or Ryse exhibits it.  People have found that if they force the XB1 to only output 720P, then they don't have the filter applied.  They've even found a way to get it to disable briefly on the XB1 doing weird stuff with snap etc, but it's only for a few seconds, but it has allowed people to generate screenshots with and without the filter applied.

I'm still way short on metal.  I have more than enough everything else though.  The issue is Kenway's upgrades are not well spaced, basically you can get the best guns/swords easily early, and then his next worthwhile outfit is story gated for a long long time.  Then the jackdaw upgrades require a bit too much grind IMO, and a bit of luck of the spawn system.  The worst seems to be that lately I find one ship with a 100 Metal surrounded by 4 other ships carrying rum and sugar, so I have to fight 5 ships for that one haul and that's discouraging.

ok, let's clear this up.  AC4 look worse on XB1 than it does on either PC or PS4.  no arguing will change this.  does this show a weakness in the platform or the developer?  unknown, we haven't played AC5 yet.  if the next one comes out and is still noticeably worse to look at on XB1 compared, then we can make a better assessment of a system's strength/weakness.  agreed? 

That wasn't even the point though, if you read my original post you see it's specifically about the sharpening filter, with a side of gee, isn't the WiiU sad.
I noted that comparisons are a tired topic, but that shot and the article specifically highlighted an XB1 quirk.  Yes it's 900p XB1 v 1080p PS4, but I  was  commenting on the odd choice to pretty much globally apply a sharpening filter to all upscaling. I mean look at what I said "Jeebus Microsoft lose that sharpening filter! "

From the Eurogamer article
Quote
As we've seen in other sub-1080p games upscaled by the Xbox One hardware, overall image quality is further impacted by the introduction of an unwanted sharpening filter

This seems more of a MS need to disable or make that an option at the system level, as opposed to a hardware power issue or a developers learning the system issue.   Ryse gets around the issue by handling the scaling internally to the game, and not letting the XB1 do it.

The comparisons themselves are not taboo. If just about anyone else had posted that, I probably wouldn't have batted an eye. But it was posted by someone who doesn't own an Xbox, doesn't plan to own an Xbox, and has a history of only posting negative news about the Xbox.

At any rate, enough said. I have confidence these issues will be ironed out.

Guys, since this game is offered through Steam how would I get it for my son?

In other words, I am playing it on my computer from my steam account.   My son got interested watching me, but I'm not sure how I would get it onto his computer so he could play at the same time.   Do I need a separate Steam account?   I'm ok with buying the game again, but I'm unsure how that works.

Eventually this

But you probably just need to buy it for him.

Apparently the fix is just to disable 1080p output and force the system to output 720p, and let your TV's upscaler do the work for now.

For stuff at 720p native that's fine,  but for stuff at 900p you are losing res.  So not really ideal.

Crickets chirping because nobody cares anymore.

YOU actually should care as an XB1 owner, as the sharpening and color altering of the scaler is a patchable issue.  Even at 900p AC4 should not look that much worse like it does there, that's the sharpening filter making the resolution difference worse.  At the very least MS should make it a system wide option.   But if you all just shrug your shoulders and say "LOL, SDF!" then MS will never patch it, so good on you.

Damnit Sony, get your network security shit together.

That's what they're doing. Have you heard about anyone actually getting hacked this time? They're being safe rather than sorry.

Seriously?

I don't even know what to say to your habit of assuming Sony is infallible no matter what.  It has carried over from the console war apparently.

hacked accounts used in fraudulent activity

PS4 has sold over 2 million units.   You don't have to go to war for them anymore. 

No surprise it's Fifa bullshit.  This plagued the 360, just ask several people on this forum.

But what is he trying to imply?  I get there's sarcasm there, but to what point?  GB liked the game, and I've seen others on other sites say that QL specifically sold them on the game.  Far as I can tell AA likes the game, and is sarcastically attacking GB for not liking it...but...

It's like I and others watched a completely different QL, or AA is just carrying some weird Brad grudge.

AA is using sarcasm to rip that reviewer a new one because he thinks he's an idiot.

Ok... so I jumped to another planet.  This one is arid and has a lot of copper and coal deposits.  It gets cold at night and I have to huddle around a campfire to stay alive.  I stumbled across an underground base belonging to some bizarre looking life forms.  They were aggressive, so I wiped them out and stole all of their goods.   They had some great stuff, including tents and floodlights that I can use for base camps.   I looted a lot of pixels.  If they had possessed beam weapons I wouldn't have been able to take them, but they didn't so I was victorious.

Packing up now to jump to another planet.   I'm staying on level 1 planets for now.   I was able to craft some copper armor - not a complete set.  More later!   

But the GB guys seemed to like it....

And both XB1 and PS4 have outsold the WiiU LTD in the UK now, so its launch couldn't have been that great.   

Didn't they also price cut the WiiU in its first three months?   I ll check when I'm at a computer.

I just recall Wii U being very easy to get at launch.  There were GAF threads and they talked about just going to a store and buying it on the Bombcasts around its launch.  I don't remember it being anything like what we see this year.

Edit: Now with source.

But...but....what about XBox One selling more on Black Friday??!?!?!  LOL. 

Before you strut around peacock proud, let's wait for the global sales for Xbone.

Do you think MS shipped or held back a million units for a week?

I was all ready to upgrade to the Ultimate from the One, too, even with it's bizarre button placement (and no skip feature).

In the US are you sure?  Because all the articles said 1 Million worldwide, which is a fair bit different.
