The $1,000,000 question:

Did their consoles brick from running the automated update, or from updating via USB drive?

Looks like he corrupted his harddrive by pulling the power during a title update that he thought hung.   He seems to be on the road to recovery having pulled the drive.

Do you have a PS3 and/or a good gaming PC.  Basically trying to figure out what level of exclusives to recommend.  Red Dead Redemption is the standout console exclusive game having no PC version, but if you had a PS3 you could have played it there for instance.

It's more complicated as multiplayer apparently was in 1080p.  So it's hard to know where people were doing their comparisons etc.

Soo, take all those singleplayer CoD comparisons and throw them out the window.

Also, get your shit together people, this applies to devs and journalists.

Looks like we are trending to having the usual new system launch syndrome happening:    Most of the launch titles are mediocre.   I expect similar next week with Xbone.

I'm excited to try Resogun, but it does quite amuse me that one of the most killer launch apps for the 8th Console Generation is.... a side scroller shoot-em-up.  smile

I've been expecting this to give Forza a run for best reviewed console exclusive launch game for a while.

The one negative to remote play is that right now it's limited to 30FPS, so you'll see a frame rate reduction on a bunch of titles.  But for most stuff it seems like reasonable tradeoff while using the feature.

I understand that some folks don't like to hear anyone speak ill of something they're excited about, but I can't be the only one who is interested in hearing any and all news & impressions about both consoles, good or bad.

Is there any chance we can have...
  • A) Xbone happy fun time thread, wherein one shall not speak ill of the Xbone
  • B) PS4 happy fun time thread, wherein one shall not speak ill of the PS4
  • C) Wild West Next Gen Thread, wherein anyone can say anything they want about either console, and post whatever articles or article excerpts they want.  Not allowed: discussing fanboyism, bias, or whether or not people are being too positive or negative.

We sort of do.  The XB1 and PS4 threads are mostly happy fun time, this is the wild west thread.

Warframe is a lot of fun the PC, so PS4 should be as well.  Several people who play it on PC use controllers to do so.

I've watched a lot of gameplay videos and I think it looks fun. <shrug> I like the Arkham series/Assassin's Creed style combat though with the blocking and the stabbing and whatnot. I really think the critics have been overly harsh on this one thanks to the QTE outrage and mostly just because hating Xbox seems to be the fashionable thing to do. That may actually work in its favor - with expectations so low, it may surprise people.

I'm hoping it will do well, I still have my pre-order in for it.  I don't think either new console has a game of this type for launch and I liked the God of War style of game (not saying this is going to be as good as GoW, just similar in some aspects).   

I think Knack shares more in common with GoW than this from a combat mechanics point of view at least.

Looks like some games will use the remote play for local multiplayer.  Rivals seems to support this with the TV and the Vita being different players.

Is it ironic that they mention they are playing at 720p?  They do say they like the look of it.

Ohh edited to add they do mention it can do 1080p as well.

Giantbomb will be capturing all games at 720p for now, regardless of whether they support 1080p or not.   Has to do with their player, bitrates, etc.

So I used my BOGO code from Amazon and I opted for the two sports titles (Madden and NBA2K).   

Madden is scheduled to ship tomorrow.   NBA2k which didn't indicate any kind of problems, now shows shipping Dec 24th???    What the heck?
pretty sure they use that and 1/1/2014 as placeholder dates when their system doesn't have it. 

Thought it was a launch title though?   Am I wrong about that?

It is a launch game.  May have sold out of first shipments though.

The difference between 720p and 1080p on the other hand is quite dramatic, and anyone would be able to spot that.

For a person with 20/20 vision to discern the difference between native 720p and native 1080p on a 50 inch screen, they have to be sitting closer than 10 feet.

Pretty sure a lot these numbers came about when looking at video and not games.  As I noted, with video you are downsampling a super high res source, it's not the same thing as rendering something natively from scratch.

For a real-world example, would it be apt to compare the way an over-the-air HD broadcast looks compared to a blu-ray movie?

Not really, movies don't really compare to games in that movies are all downscaled (well excluding really crappy CGI stuff) from extremely high res sources.

Yeah I got the code too... I really can't decide what to use it on. If I thought Madden would be any good that'd be a no brainer but I expect it to largely be awful. NBA2K14 is pretty, but basketball doesn't interest me much... so it's between Killzone (and I already have Ghosts on PS4 and BF4 on PC) or NFS Rivals. Not sold on either.

Why are people thinking Madden will be bad?    I haven't seen any next gen reviews for it?
EA has been phoning in their sports games for a while.  Especially Madden where they have no competition.

Ok I went with AC4 and NFS:Rivals.  Already getting Killzone, and didn't need another FPS right away.  Felt a strong pull from Knack though,  and it was tough to choose between that and Rivals, but I figure Killzone, AC4, and Rivals gives me a nice spread of games at launch and I can grab Knack later if it's decent, as well as add it to the xmas list.

just realized they're doing better than the Target deal, which is B2G1, not BOGO.
It works out to the same I think.  As you got the promotion code if you already preordered a game.  This is if you preorder two more games, at least that is how I have interpreted it.

That should serve to cool things off.

Things were cool until you flamed me. While things may be cool again tomorrow, how long will that last? How long until another insult comes out of nowhere, starting it all over again?

This stupid "war" of ours isn't going anywhere until you're able to confront yourself with this. It doesn't matter if I said "The Xbox One is a steaming pile of shit", which I didn't for the record. Any time you respond to an opinion or an argument with an insult, any resulting heat is your fault. I could reach out my (virtual) hand and say "I apologize", but I really don't know what I'm supposed to apologize for. Spreading news? I can do that as much as I want, thank you. Being unbalanced in my opinion? That is my right, as long as I don't insult others over it. Insulting you? I would apologize in a heartbeat if I did that, but any insults I've come up with to you have been in response to insults you've tossed against me.

You want things to cool down? Then do something other than walk out the door and hope things cool down on their own. That's not what's wrong here.

I think I will opt to not even respond to this.

Too late, you just did.

To be fair, TiLT picked out perhaps the only bad impression out of the guy's entire list of positive impressions (a very lengthy list). I think that's what irked MSD. Who's the real fanboy - the guy getting both consoles, or the guy getting only the PS4 and who points out the Xbox's flaws at every opportunity?

From the posts, it's pretty clearly the guy getting both consoles, you wouldn't think that normally but there it is in abundant evidence in writing.  Weird eh?

As pointed out in Soulchilde's video, they had to start somewhere with TV integration. Once it's in a lot of homes and customers start to demand features, it's much easier to get content providers on board. I have no doubt we'll eventually see better DVR integration, but Rome wasn't built in a day.
The problem is they really need to ship with a cable tuner card in the box, the XB1 should be capable of being your cable box.  Now we may see support of that in the future but it's going to require all new hardware, in which case the early adopters will need to upgrade.

Yeah but that would lock you in to specific cable companies which is definitely not a good thing...  particularly for satellite, fiber, etc providers.  I think the hardware situation is actually decent given the amount of variation that's out there.  The question is how to get the software integration going.

For instance, one thing I don't get: given that they have control over the IR blaster, it seems like the Xbone should be able to generate any command that the remote normally does, which would include on/off, volume, etc.  And for that matter why wouldn't you be able to access the DVR functionality in the same way?  If Logitech can get their remotes to do stuff like that, certainly Microsoft can get the Xbone to do the same?  The only difference seems like using verbal commands or movements to substitute for specific button presses, which they clearly can do.

Probably because it'd be hilariously clunky.

Xbox List
Xbox down
Xbox down
Xbox down
Xbox Enter
Xbox Enter

Yeah I'd rather press the buttons.

Yeah but we know it has speech recognition as well, so really just List is enough, maybe having access to Enter would be useful.

So I'm thinking:

Xbox List - brings up the full list of my recorded shows
Xbox Watch XXX - starts the show (of course this gets tricky with multiple episodes in a folder...)

edit: and also don't forget about using hand motions, etc to move the cursor around like they show in the one video.  So maybe you make a scroll down gesture to move down, and then a "stop" gesture for enter.  The point being this is all clearly very doable already through software.  All they would need is some way to allow user customization of assigning a specific motion or verbal command to a DVR command, similar to the way Logitech lets you custom program buttons to commands.

The Xbox has no way of knowing what the show is on your DVR, you select shows on a DVR by a visual list.  Whatever the XB1 would be doing, it would be replicating button prompts.  The reason you can do voice control for live TV shows is that it has the TV guide built in for your provider.

Which reminds it sounded like not all cable providers would be supported.  I wonder if mine is, as my cable company is my town.  Hypothetical really as I'm not planning on getting an XB1 any time soon.
