Not a joke indeed, just an incredibly misinformed statement. It’s not Gaikai, it’s a planned feature for the new PSN, it’ll only pre-load things you might want to purchase, it won’t purchase them for you, and it’ll be an optional feature.
I get that, but this is a bit hard to ignore.
It’s not unreasonable to expect a reveal to set the tone for what’s to come. Sony spent a lot of time talking about immediacy, sharing, and giving developers the best tools they can. MS spent a lot of time talking about tv, sports and call of duty.
And it’s not like anyone has committed to one platform or the other yet anyway, despite people’s claims. Obviously things can change and so can people’s opinions. But we’re allowed to have some fun in the meantime aren’t we? :)
To me it seemed their motto was “TV. Sports. Call of Duty.” :p
What I want to know is… what happens if I plug in an Xbox One into another Xbox One? Will I get an Xbox Two? Can this process be repeated infinitely? Xbox Infinity! :O
If there were no early adopters, products would fail. :p
I’ll be an early adopter for both consoles I hope(unless my financial situation unexpectedly goes to shit :p), but not because I’m an idiot, and not because I’m a kid with rich parents(not a kid and my parents aren’t rich), but because I can afford it, and I care about this medium enough to want to support it. I see potential on both devices, and that’s enough for me to throw in my support.
Not for higher-end games tho. Even 3 Titans in SLI won’t get you over 40fps on games like Sleeping Dogs or Hitman with everything maxed out. A single Titan rates at 4.7 TFLOPs. The PS4 in comparisson sits at 1.84 TFLOPS, and the Xbox One is rumored to be around 1.3 IIRC.
So basically, no. 4K support on the Xbox One will be like 1080p support on the 360 except even worse. Games will need a lot of compromises to run natively at that resolution at a playable framerate. It’ll probably only be used on simpler games, like 2D platformers or puzzle games.
Never done or known before.
unexampled – unparalleled – unheard-of
It is better, it’s just that they are overselling it so much it almost feels like I’m watching a parody. Either they live in a bubble and haven’t paid any attention whatsoever to other games for the last seven years, or they’re being incredibly disingenuous.
But dude, it’s unprecedented and never before possible!
Not even Crysis 3 on PC could get you that level of detail!
Also, slightly more interesting view into some of the new features: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9kENCgBu2o4&feature=youtu.be
So hey, anyone else felt that the audience cheering during the stream was… somewhat suspect? Cause I did, and now some people who attended the event are saying that it wasn’t the press that was cheering…
Explains a lot, really. :/
Well, there’s no rings this time around. My guess is some sort of screen of death.
So if it gets borked you have to send your console in? Blegh.
Banjo: Kapony! It’s happening, people!
And voice recognition won’t help, because the game will record your voice and use it against you. BWAHAHA.
Kojima is going to have a lot of fun with it, I can bet you that.
It’s actively trying to censor information about the new Xbox. It doesn’t want to be replaced. It’s jealous and scared and angry. Mostly angry. Now it watches, carefully. It waits. For the right time.
BUT THEN I FEEL LIKE IT’S JUDGING ME.
I dunno, I’ve always just seen it as fluff entertainment. But regardless, how long will it be before the usual suspects of god-awful-yet-immensely-popular tv start invading your Xbox experience as well? :p
Nah, just have the notifications pop in from all corners. Better yet, instead of just a notification, have your friend’s avatars pop out from all corners and wave at you. That would be hilarious. :P
This is the first thing I thought of when they mentioned the 300k server power. It’s definitely an interesting proposition, but I still wonder how much you can actually do in games with whatever the average bandwidth is today, and how big of an issue latency will be.
Plus there’s the potential issue of developers using this as an excuse to enforce online only DRM on single player games, claiming that they are ‘offloading calculations’ which turn out to not be significant at all, much like it happened with the new Sim City.
Also, this type of thing will definitely not be friendly to consumers who do not live within a certain range of their server farms, and what will MS do then, ask consumers why they even want to live where they do? :p
I’m really worried about how they’re trying to integrate everything tho. I feel like they’re going to bring all these horrible things from the TV world and just make gaming much dumber than it already is. I shuddered when that woman mentioned CSI and Survivor when talking about TV innovation… ._.
Wow, must have completely missed it. I just noticed the article here on Polygon about it. Thanks.
It will plug into your veins and steal your energy.
But will it have blast processing?
