I own both and vastly prefer the Xbox One. Killzone did nothing for me, Knack was pretty bland, Contrast has spotty controls, and Outlast just wasn’t scary for me. Resogun is fun for a short while, Zen Pinball is still as good as it was on older platforms, and Flower is joyful. The free to play games on PS4 just don’t do it for me either.
As for the multi-platform games, I prefer the Xbox One’s controller much more than the DS4 (which despite not being used much, always seems to be out of battery charge when I do pick it up). So I played Assassin’s Creed and Thief on X1 and they looked good to me, with the added option to simply stop playing at any time and watch TV/Netflix/Amazon instantly with my family.
Destiny and Watch Dogs will be Xbox pick ups for me too despite the bonus content on PS4.
No problem! If you search for Project Spark again on Xbox One, the beta is now up to download too
I’m pretty sure he was talking about crossing the bridge of letting creators get paid in real money for their level creations.
Spark Tokens can be purchased for real money to buy the construction/level kits. Spark Credits are earned by playing and creating levels.
For example (and this is currently in beta so the pricing might change) the Arctic Glaciers pack sells for 20,000 Credits or 1,000 Tokens (currently $9.99).
I thought BF4’s campaign was okay too, until I turned it back on and it had erased 5-6 hours of progress :(
No idea at all! It doesn’t save progress, item pickups, nada unless you go to a save station.
I wish I had realized sooner how the checkpoints worked in the new Strider. Basically, they are straight up Metroid – find a specific spot and save your game there.
The reason it is confusing though is you will be running along in a level (or have just beaten a boss) and the game will display “Checkpoint….” in the bottom right corner. This DOES NOT save your game! It only saves when the little red ninja symbol shows up at a designated save spot.
I’m guessing if you hold down the guide button, you’ll get the option to turn off the console, just like with the controllers.
Warning – the checkpoints are pretty terrible so far. I beat the second boss, landed in a zone that said Checkpoint…
Loaded it up later and I’m back to before the boss fight.
Sure, but removing the Kinect won’t make the Xbox One a better system – just a cheaper system.
Sure but there is no Halo Reach on Xbox One so the multiplayer would have to be its own thing. Plus alot of people seem to be forgetting that there was already a PC version of Halo 2, so porting & up-rezzing it shouldn’t be too big of an issue.
RE: Burn Cards – They’re collectible rewards earned through play, not purchasable through microtransactions.
Whew! When I read the first line about burn cards, I was like “Oh crap, here come the microtransactions!”. So glad to hear that’s not the case.
I’m a big fan of network attached storage.
