I had a video I posted of a cool Killzone moment, but you can only post them to facebook, and I really don't want gaming stuff on my facebook page. If I could find some way to share them with you without having everyone see it on my facebook.

I've got no problem with being a gamer, and even talk about it on my facebook. However, I don't want to fill my FB page with random stuff for my non-gaming friends to see.

You could start a separate FB account for just your gaming persona.

Or just create a group for you videogaming FB friends and post to that

Games with Gold continues on Xbox One

I don't get why, when they have a system in place today to handle this on 360, they are waiting until the end of next year to announce the details on the XBO version of this.

Could be the library of XB1 games isn't large enough to start the program until then.  Sony getting in with the independent developers probably gives them a good head start.

2014? Based on what I've seen of the program on 360 shouldn't that be 2017?  icon_twisted

Well here's the deal before PS4 fans slit their wrists and Xbox fans start popping the champagne.

All the ultimately says is:

1. Reviewers who hyped better visuals on the PS4 due to resolution differences were full of shit.
2. There is some weirdness going on since it appears the PS4 is having framerate issues that the Xbone doesn't, and now they don't have 1080p to blame for it.

This means that reviewers who could not tell a difference were correct - but this also means the disparity may in fact be *larger* than first thought.

End of the day it doesn't change the fact PS4 runs at a higher resolution and probably looks a little better in side by sides. It does give some journalists (and a lot of armchair quarterback internet posters) a healthy serving of crow. The real test will be how it runs framerate wise post 1080p patch.




So as a reviewer of COD Ghosts who went to the review event and played on both One and PS4, I'd like to note one thing- this day one patch is for the retail version of the game- the physical disk. I did not see a physical disk in the unit I was playing on and it is entirely possible that the version I played on was a version post-gold master. I'm not trying to defend anyone, just pointing out that the assumptions being made about what reviewers saw up to this point are based off of incomplete data. I'd say it's very likely that what we saw included the patch for the commercial disk.

That said, I had no real way to test actual resolution or framerate on any of the platforms. All I have is the anecdotal evidence I saw when I looked at them individually- the PS4 version looked a little better to me. I should also note that this was when the situation was first coming to light.

I'll definitely use the snap feature. When PC gaming I'm usually also watching a TV show or movie. I'd love the ability to Skype with my buddies while gaming. Doubt I'll ever use the internet lookup, but hey, it's there if I ever want to. The biggest use will be keeping an eye on basketball and football games while playing. That's huge for me with college basketball season coming up.

I don't like saying "I don't want extra features because I'll never use them." That's never turned out to be true for me when it comes to consumer electronics.

While I think the snap feature is one I'd actually use, and actually love the idea of being able to check on other stuff while I'm gaming that would otherwise cause a more drastic interrupt, I can't agree with your last statement- built-in internet features on so-called 'smart' TVs that became impossible to avoid as of a few years ago are horrible compared to other solutions such as an Apple TV. I didn't want it, couldn't find a TV worth a shit without it, never use it.

I'm not going to get into the specifics of why we aren't going to enable the feature, suffice to say that the reasons against it were more than compelling. We got through elections without this feature we can get through these console launches.

SMF has a built-in ignore function, right?  We just have it disabled?  Is there any way to have mods manually force certain people to have each other on ignore?

We don't have it enabled because we all decided it was a stupid feature that could result in a broken experience at times. The idea was that our forum-goers are mature enough to self-regulate for the most part and hopefully knew when to chill the fuck out. If you gotta ignore someone or be ignored, you need to step away from your keyboard.

I suppose it's a spoiler since it shows the ending.    But this is insane.... I mean it's literally the same ending.

That's not the ending of Ghosts. That's in the first 10 minutes.

I think we'd all be surprised at how often animations are re-used in games, to be honest.

Animations, sure. But cutscenes? All they've done is to replay the same cutscene with replaced models.

Well, it's not really a cutscene, it's more of a moment where you aren't controlling the character. I wouldn't even classify it as an in-game cutscene, more like a scripted instance

I believe the MP3 streaming is done via a method I can't remember the name of right now, where your computer has to "push" the MP3 to the Xbox One. In other words, you can't start playback from the console, but must do so from the PC. That makes their playback method worthless to most people, I would think. That's why I said they don't support MP3s. If this has changed since the announcement last week, I'd love to hear about it.
If it doesn't I'm 98% out on both consoles.  Most of my gaming is PC these days and about 50% of what I use my console for is streaming my lossless WMA files to my living room during gatherings and parties.  What a lame feature to remove.

There are much cheaper and much better devices that can do this

Sounds like the PS4 version is going to pay for 1080p.

You have to wonder what the hell these people think they're doing in game development if they can't make this aging engine run smoothly on a brand new console when other people can make MUCH better looking engines run well on those same consoles.

Honestly, I only saw framerate issues during the single player campaign and those were far and few between.

Any of those reviews focus primarily on multiplayer?  The first two I clicked on are "blah blah blah single player" and "blah blah blah new multiplayer modes."  I really just want to hear how the new maps are, how well the perks/killstreaks are balanced, how good the weapons feel, whether or not dedicated servers improve things, etc.

It would be impossible for an advance review to know how well the dedicated servers improve things. That will bear out in the coming days.

Yeah, I don't understand the indie game emphasis. It's probably because I already have two platforms to play cheap indie titles on - a PC and an iPad. Lord knows I don't need a $400 console on top of it to play games like that. I can see why people without a PC would be into it, but for me personally it's not much of an incentive.



Sony's new love for indie gaming is what tipped my favor to the PS4. The next great gaming experiences are forged in the crucible of indie development. I think it's a brilliant strategy.

The best part of the XBone controller are the sticks. love the grip on the sides - if you brush your finger across it, it "grips" your fingerprint - making it much easier to get a higher fidelity response. The PS4's sticks feel a lot like 360s, which is not a bad thing.


Having just used both extensively, I actually HATE the Xbone's sticks- they are MUCH smaller and very dainty compared to the PS4's. Prolonged play with it made my thumbs sore and I don't see why they changed it up from the 360 so drastically.

Was VERY surprised at just how good the PS4 controller felt in my hand. I'll need more time with it but I actually think it may supplant the 360 controller as my favorite controller.

Yeah... haven't had a long time with the XB1 controller - I didn't find the sticks to be a problem at all. Like I said, I loved the grip on the top/sides. My concerned with prolonged use is the vibration in the fingertips causing sensitivity issues - mind you, I was driving through gravel on Forza for me to feel that way. smile

The PS4 triggers feel really good, but that middle bit between the L1/L2 always caught my finger, and I also found that to use the triggers and feel natural, I had to bend my finger outwards. I'll post a pic tonight.

There was a general sense of disappointment regarding the sticks on the Xbone controller at the event I was at (which I can't discuss at this time). Suffice to say, pushing down on the thumbsticks was the primary issue and the smaller size of the sticks contributed very negatively to the experience. It sucks, because my gripe with the traditional playstation controller design has been that they felt made for tinier hands than mine, and the 360 controller felt just right.

I was just thinking about this after reading the Batman review.  Pretty much everyone else grades from 70-100.  If I'm a publisher, why would I ever want to send you a prerelease copy of a game?  Even a decent score from you will drag down my metacritic/gamerankings average.  It might get you more readers as some people like to check out the outliers, but if I were a publisher, I'd cut you off.

What about Joystiq? Quarter to Three? Giant Bomb? Hell, even Metacritic assumes a larger range. There are MANY sites out there that don't adhere to this unspoken 70-100, enough to where I'd say the percentage of sites that do only have a slight majority. They continue to get product to review.

We are holding ourselves to a higher standard. High scoring reviews on this site will now mean something. We've been 'cut off' and cut on for far more whimsical reasons in the past, this will change very little.

Stupid China's terrible and corrupt labor and business culture. I hate having to worry about this with every big purchase.
The worst thing about this particular instance is that consumers get screwed either way because there's not a lot of choice when it comes to games consoles. We don't have much power to influence the console manufacturers here. Only for electronics where there is actual choice do we get the chance to make a difference. I know Apple uses Foxconn extensively, despite getting grilled about it in the media multiple times. Don't buy iPhones or iPads. Buy competing products that don't use labor practices that equate to slavery. I think some of their competitors do the same thing (Samsung maybe?) but I don't remember the details at the moment.

All of them do it. ALL of them. Don't buy the horseshit that it's just Apple. Our electronics empire is built on the back of cheap asian labor, and it's not going to stop until China changes their labor laws
