not sure what was well timed about that- you were well out of the blast range of the explosion.  I know because I just did that mission:)

It was my intention to play a variety of games on the PS4 today, but I ended up getting sucked into AC4, leaving only half an hour each with Killzone, Lego Marvel and Flower early on. I keep having to stop and admire the crystal clear graphics. 1080p makes a huge difference to me. Amazingly, the last patch for AC4 seems to have pretty much eliminated most aliasing artifacts, which makes things like ropes look great in motion when they would have been a flickering mess at lower resolutions.

Looking forward to messing around some more with this thing tomorrow. It's been an extremely pleasant experience so far.

Yeah, AC 4 is gorgeous.

On another note, does anyone know how to turn the controller's light off? I'm about to take ducktape to it...
Use painters tape not ducctape, shouldn't leave any residue when you remove it.

I don't think I understand the offset sticks vs. not-offset sticks debate, possibly because I have no preference on way or another.  I just put my thumbs on the sticks wherever they happen to be.  The angle difference just never registered with me, and the 360 and PS3 controllers always seemed equally comfortable.

What is it that people are debating exactly?  Is it a matter of wrist comfort, directional accuracy, or just an issue of habit?

-Autistic Angel

I think it's partly a false issue.  The DS3 was just bad and there's some false association that the reason it was was because of the stick placement, whereas the 360 controller was good with the offset placement.   Now the DS4 is a good controller (great even) and it uses the symmetrical sticks and I think goes a fair way to prove that the offset v symmetric argument is kind of meaningless, when really it's more about the overall quality of the controller.

They still have the left stick in the position that is not my personal preference so I remain skeptical, but I would like to pick one up and feel it for myself.
Fixed that for you. Essentially, the controller difference is down to personal preference now.

Sigh... yes, of course this is all in my opinion. I didn't really think that needed to be spelled out, but thanks. smile (added a smiley to make it clear I am just clowning around)

For the record the first gamepad I ever owned with an analog stick was a Dualshock 1, so it isn't like I had some MS/Nintendo preference before using a Sony controller. I just don't like having the main movement stick in the lower position since it feels so unnatural. Likewise, while I haven't yet held it, the new Wii U classic controller which has the right stick up where the buttons should be seems equally non-intuitive. In my oh so humble opinion of course. slywink

Trust me, I HATED Playstation controllers before this. I was extremely skeptical. Never thought I'd say I would like a Playstation controller as much as I like the DS4. It just feels really good in my hands. Not having offset sticks doesn't bother me as much as I thought it would, either. After a significant amount of time with both new controllers I was shocked to realize that I much preferred the DS4.

I've sort of ended up the same.  I just used my 360 controller again and it felt weird.

Yeah I think I'm pretty much done with the competitive side of COD. I'll play some squad mode or extinction if people want to do some of that.

BF4 is much better for my play style and temperament.

I think you'd really like the latest Killzone.  The support class in that is super strong and there's a lot of variability to it from building spawn beacons, turrets, air support, or ammo boxes depending on your loadout.  And in a nice twist, the rotating objective mode is the most populated as opposed to Team DM.

The other thing that is bothering me is that the pass through seems to lock me into always using the Xbone for TV, unless I missed something.  With the unit off, I tried my regular remote and turned on cable box + TV but got nothing.  I thought generally passthroughs would also behave passively like a true "thru" with the power off but apparently not in this case?  Maybe I'm remembering wrong but I'm pretty sure that's how my receiver works.  This isn't really a major problem except that it means everyone else is also forced to use the Xbone to watch TV.  It's fine for me, but I don't want my non-gaming partner forced into using it.  Then again maybe I can trick him into gaming with me this way lol.

That's by design.  MS wants to control/track all your media consumption, so letting the cable signal through while the XB1 is off would defeat that purpose.

Finished the single player and the reviews are mostly right about it if considering that alone.  It's just too inconsistent across the campaign.    Usually it falters when it tries to break up the formula.  There are moments where it's great, then there are moments where you just wonder what Guerrilla was thinking.  I do think most of the reviewers didn't give the multiplayer enough credit though, I think that is quite good from what I have seen so far.

I'm sure that PS4 will pull ahead when it starts launching in Europe and elsewhere, but ultimately it doesn't really matter. Market share will be decided much later down the road.

True.  Either way Bone sales are not the catastrophe that was being predicted by Knackers.

How are these posts in any way better than someone posting a straightforward piece of news that you don't want to hear?

So the multi in this is pretty good.  The dynamics mission assignment in Classic Warzone is neat, it's cool the way a round transitions between One Flag, Team DM,  Domination, and Search and Destroy.   Classes all seem useful, and there seems to be a place for the various secondary abilities though some seem more useful than others.  Having a support with the ability to build spawn beacons helps a lot, so going all turrets is not the best option for instance.   Reminds me a bit of the F2P Ghost Recon game, the scout even has a similar radar skill.   I tend to take the Air Support drone over the turret on the out door maps, the fact that you throw it to place it like a grenade is super useful, especially when assaulting a bomb position or trying to take a contested domination zone, the downside is it only works outdoors.

Shame the Hark/Jarrod/Kato crew aren't playing this as I think they'd really like it.

While I'm not over the moon about how the XBone looks I am hopeful that having the power supply outside the box in addition to the copious venting will keep any heat related issues away.  Oh and Amazon shipped and I've gotten Friday off.

I have to ask, are we talking no hope of a patch to increase game performance on the XB1?  I mean what PS4 title actually shipped with the promised 1080p support? Resogun?  AC4 needed a patch so why can't the Xbox do the same?
most PS4 games are 1080p.  Killzone, Resogun, Knack, Nba2k14, Nfs:Rivals all shipped that way.  Ac4 needed and got a patch. CoD shipped 1080p multi and needed a patch for single player.  BF4 is 900p on ps4 with no talk of a patch.
350  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: November 21, 2013, 12:41:27 PM
Also let's not confuse DLC with boosts, payed bypasses, and pay gates.  Horse armor was silly but also wasn't any of those things.  It does sound like some of these titles feature these F2P style micro transactions,  EA started doing this late last gen too.

They're on damage control right now, which is to be expected with any failure rate.

If a single Xbone fails to boot, the lynch mob already has the torches ready. slywink

At this point, the Bone could go with 100% success rate and someone out there is going to put down his Knack, hit one with a bat, and then come here to complain how the system couldn't even withstand a hit from a bat.

Have I pushed this the past three posts enough for the usual suspects to feign neutrality and say that despite three pages of pissing on Xbone reviews (which came out higher than PS4 reviews btw) that us Bone buyers are being defensive because of the absolute disaster of the past 24 hours?

You absolutely are defensive duncan.

still wondering what the 'Promotion Applied:    -$20.00' is from, not complaining though.

No shipping info on anything but Battlefield 4 yet, I'm actually thinking of taking Friday off so Amazon had better get on the stick, I don't need a forgeforsaken event on Friday.

The good news is that if finally showed up late Monday, but it was a total bummer not having it for the weekend.  Good luck to you all.

Problem is that the world is complex, and there are lots of different setups. Also, you'd have no sound overlay for things that are "snapped" (Skype, for instance) while watching / listening to the non-xbone audio source.


sadly, this appears to be one of the exceptions to snap.  From the polygon review:

It's worth mentioning that every app on Xbox One save for, bizarrely, Skype can also be snapped to the right side of the screen in a mini window,

Wait, isn't that exactly how they show it used in the various NFL commercials?

K, I'm not going to respond to the froth on Hetz's mouth, or the numerous digs that are clearly baiting.


I will answer this, and perhaps slowly - HDMI as default is a single segment negotiation. The XB1 should be the "last stop" on its way to the TV via HDMI - anyone passing HDMI to the TV hoping it will output past it back into their receiver are misled regardless.

The audio should have been run through a receiver on HDMI FIRST or split out from the optical out.

Doing it any other way is retard

That defeats the whole purpose though, if you have to switch audio inputs on your receiver then the XB1 design is a mess.   For Snap and TV switching the cable box should be handing off all info to the XB1 directly, there should be no split channels etc.

Also it looks like the Optical port is only DTS out right now.
355  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: November 20, 2013, 02:53:55 PM
So this came up in the "other" thread but I think this is relevant for future XB1 owners.  The XB1 does not support Surround Sound for the cable/satellite.  http://support.xbox.com/en-GB/xbox-one/live-tv/digital-sound-not-working

So if you have a home theater setup you'll want to weigh using that pass-through or not as, as of right now, there are tradeoffs.
