Really now, what about CoD: Ghosts and BF4?  Aren't those using Azure on XB1?  Are they going to require gold on PC too?

Apparently, this is a much older build that they're using. Things like the rain effects are actually way better in the multiplayer beta currently going on.
The rain in the Gametrailers preview was the only thing that didn't look really good, and was a stark contrast to how great the rest of it looks visually.

I think the big thing that Kinect is going to do is introduce big things for those hackers - the MS Store is open and people, instead of building cool apps on PC to show off stuff, will actually be revenue generating competing programs that can do cool things and provide them as more than just youtube tech demos.
The really cool hacking stuff I was referring to wasn't just apps though but was things like using the Kinect on a robot or RC car/helicopter.

This type of stuff

If we assume that Kinect 2 works perfectly and is a great boon to gaming (which I don't believe for a second, just to get my personal opinion out of the way), its biggest hurdle is the fact that any game developed for Kinect will, by nature, be exclusive to the Xbox One. That kind of exclusivity is making less and less sense for publishers economically.

Eh, what I see happening is features that are mapped to the kinect, such as pointing or leaning, will be covered by the PS4 gyroscope and touch pad.  You raise your hand to signal your squad to stop in the new RB6 and on the PS4 you swipe back on the touchpad.  The truly Kinect centric games like Dance Central you'll need a PS Eye for if they ship a PS4 version at all of those titles, but I don't think we are gonna be flooded with games like that.

Shouldn't we differentiate XBLA from XBLA1? smile


Hark, are you getting COD Ghosts?    If so I'm going to go ahead and preorder it for the Xbone.

Plan is to get BF4 on the 29th, then get digital Ghosts for 360 on the 5th, then upgrade digitally to Xb1 Ghosts and BF4 on launch of the 1.

Getting BF4 mostly because of Jarrod so he better play when I can. lol

I do think that many people, including a lot of you just don't 'get' the potential of the Kinect and the fact that MS HAD to force it's inclusion or it would be guaranteed to fail.  This way it only fails if devs fail to use it properly (which could obviously still happen)

I think they also don't 'get' the fact that Sony was following the exact same business plan for their next gen.   They literally cut that functionality (the Eye) hours before their presentation so that they could come in $100 cheaper.    The Eye was going to be an integrated part of their platform, and now it will be effectively dead on arrival.

Even if they included the Eye they still would have been $40 cheaper.

I'm actually excited for Kinect 2, just not in a gaming or XB1 context.  The hacking community did some very cool things with the original Kinect, and I expect that's where we'll see all the actual cool stuff this time around too.  But as a gaming peripheral, it has A LOT to prove.

My guess is that this is pretty close to market reality.

I don't know, I'm still really skeptical about how much the general public knows about either console. I've been asking friends and family of varying degrees of gamerness what they know about the new consoles, and answers vary from "oh, there's a new one coming out?" to "oh yeah, I heard something was coming out soon." Nobody knew of any of the Xbone drama.

I really think there's a good chance the mainstream gamers are just gonna buy a PS4 if they had a PS3 and buy an Xbone if they had a 360.

The early negative XB1 press hit mainstream, heck my parents knew about it and asked me about it unprompted.  They've had a tougher time getting the changes out there though, bad news generally gets bigger press.

60 would be best but I've played racers at 30fps and not had a problem. Think most of the Forza games ran at that and I was ok with it.

Forza are 60, they make a huge deal about it being 60 as well.

It's 60 but they are making some tradeoffs to get there especially in regards to lighting and shadows.  Now is it worth those to get a solid 60, for the type of game Turn 10 is making, probably, as I think most racers would prefer 60 FPS over having fully realtime lighting and shadows and it's questionable how many people even notice the difference in lighting engines.

Resogun is digital only but I think it is worth noting as it has the potential to be to the PS4 what Geometry Wars was to the 360 at launch.  And on that same note I'd add Killer Instinct to the XB1 list.

I've started to notice more positive Xbox One news as we get closer to release and see more articles focused on actual tech/features. Maybe MS has started to pull out of their PR tailspin.

the more they show of AC4, the better I feel about the PS4.  oddly enough, I have cooled on Watch Dogs a bit.  I'm beginning to worry about how well they've built it, while AC4 just looks better with each new video.  

as for the paid forum goers, that accusation has been leveled against both sides.  has either side admitted to doing so?

Yeah, I'm worried about Watch Dogs too,  I think it may suffer the same problem as AC did, in that there's the ground work for something really good there, but they don't get it quite right the first go.  Definitely going to wait for some reviews and impressions.

They also launched a PR campaign online to make sure the momentum was carried.    Forum posters on the dole for the company insighting the masses.   

I haven't seen any Sony viral marketers get busted yet, but over at GAF there have been several MS viral marketers that have been busted and banned now this cycle.   Maybe there were some on the Sony side and I just missed them getting busted but I've definitely seen the MS ones get busted.


And it's mainstream media too, see the recent advertising dustup which showed up on NBC and Time.

Also, his claims have been openly disputed:

But, a confirmed Xbox One developer has taken to Reddit to respond to these claims, saying that CBOAT is using hardware that is made for stress testing.


I actually am aware of that and know a few of them. You should know weve gotten many devkits throughout this past year.

The console in question is a zebra turned stress machine for hardware/heat issues testing.

Now, that guys seems suspect as this seems highly unlikely.

So with the preorder/beta news, what version is the one to go for?

I'm totally clueless so I just picked Xbone since Ron said the controller was the best.  

PS4 will have exclusive content and will probably run better to boot.  In regards to controllers watch this

Longtime 360 controller fan ends up preferring PS4 controller, though the XB1 controller is still solid.

Yes, and then read our front page with Ron's impressions of the Xbox One controller. :shrug: It's personal preference, and the video you put out there the guy states it over and over again.

That article is just an update/overview on the XB1 controller, the PS4 or Sony controller isn't compared or contrasted at all outside of the click-bait headline of the article.  I point out that the XB1 controller is solid in my post, and as you noted these are personal preferences and one shouldn't be making a decision based on a single article that doesn't even compare or contrast the controllers especially when there are numerous other places coming to an opposite conclusion, though they all seem to agree that it is very very close either way.

And Ritt, there's no reason to preorder this before the consoles come out, so you might as well wait until you have them assuming you are getting both you can judge which controller you prefer then.

Netflix is now offering the 3D and super HD all over now. When is the 3D content coming? The offerings are pitiful.

I haven't seen any of the items in my queue showing Super HD yet, but looking forward to the 3D content.

All I saw were very few, I think children's shows from Europe maybe? CGI. I am just hoping that my search parameters were off.

There's a bunch of of Super HD movies.  I think Avengers is Super HD.  3d is lacking, and it is all kids shows or nature films.  There's a couple of old IMAX things, and Shark Night but when I tried to watch Shark Night it seemed to be busted.  I'll have to try it again to see if it was just a weird stream or a bad encode on their side.
