May 21st 2013
137
           what part of that looks contemporary?
May 21st 2013
156
                it looks like the cable box that it's trying to be.
May 21st 2013
163
                My bad, I fat fingered "complementary".
May 21st 2013
165

May 21st 2013

May 21st 2013
152
I haven't borrowed a game from a friend since college

May 22nd 2013
212
I get most of my games off craigslist.
May 22nd 2013
242
Well shit it is for me
May 21st 2013
178
That "always on" drm working for YOU
May 21st 2013
150
its kinda lame that your XBLA games won't transfer
May 21st 2013
151
      that is bullshit, I play XBLA almost as much as major titles
May 21st 2013
193
It's been confirmed that it has to be connected to Kinect to work
May 21st 2013
157
It's being sold with Kinect included.
May 21st 2013
160
      that ain't the problem
May 23rd 2013
312
           You know you can mute the kinect?
May 23rd 2013
313
one would assume that by naming it XBOX One
May 21st 2013
158
hell I think I'm going to sell my PS3 too now
May 21st 2013
161
I have two. I might let the phat go.
May 21st 2013
162
      I definitely want to let it go before the flood gates open
May 21st 2013
166
      how much you want?
May 21st 2013
169
Microsoft is cheap.
May 21st 2013
164
so basically the biggest selling point is the fact it's copying Sonys
May 21st 2013
167
since when did Sony invent the console as a media hub?
May 21st 2013
170
Sony technically did it first
May 21st 2013
171
      So we're digging all the way back to 2006 now?
May 21st 2013
173
           the whole marketing spin for ps3 was as a media hub
May 21st 2013
175
           Home was a failure, and was a social world like Second Life
May 21st 2013
176
           uh yeah, thats when all this started
May 21st 2013
177
Seems like it
May 21st 2013
179
That's the problem with being first. Others can improve on your mistakes

May 21st 2013
180

May 21st 2013
181
Well how on earth are you going to switch inputs on your TV w/o it?
May 21st 2013
183
      if Sony follows their lead, i'm done w/ console gaming.
May 21st 2013
186
Why do you have to be so negative.
May 21st 2013
184

Can't think of a better time to eject entirely from console gaming.
May 22nd 2013

It's poor execution and so many gray areas.
May 22nd 2013

      See that's the thing...I don't want to do all that on my console
May 22nd 2013
224
           Yeah... it's adding features we never wanted in a console.
May 22nd 2013
226
                They are adding these features because there's nowhere else to go.

May 23rd 2013
256
      PS4 emphasized your game experience in the cloud.
May 23rd 2013
259
           so are these facts enough to base opinion?
May 23rd 2013

What many suspected was coming has indeed happened: Microsoft just confirmed an upcoming Xbox event on May 21st, which we expect to be focused on the company's next-gen Xbox console (informally codenamed Durango). The company isn't diving into specifics at this stage, but the event is taking place on its own Xbox campus and should offer a "real taste of the future," according to Xbox Live programming director Larry Hryb. Don't worry too much that Microsoft will completely upstage E3, which happens just a few weeks later -- Hryb also promises that his firm "continue the conversation" at the show, focusing its attention on its game lineup. Players will have a chance to stream the event through both Microsoft's services (including Xbox Live) and Spike TV, but you can be sure we'll be on the ground to share the news first-hand.

I think they'll have the hardware to show by then. IMO, Sony really dropped the ball by having that presentation and not even showing the hardware. That was kinda ridiculous. They should have waited until everything was ready.

5. "Any predictions?"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I think it'll be always online. Some people say they may have been testing the waters with these rumors, but if that were true, why fire Adam Orth? There were also rumors that the reason the reveal was pushed from April to May was because it originally was always online, but after the outcry Microsoft decided not to implement it, but when you're ostensibly 7 months away from releasing a console would you really be able remove such a feature. I'm sure their factory overseas has been producing the console since January, if not earlier.

Light on specs
Launch window titles, little in-game footage
Maybe controller pics

They'll probably go harder on game footage and have playable units at E3.

I hated on it until I got a 360. Only ones that complain about it are those little petite guys that cant hold the damn thing in their little girly hands.

Anecdotal, sure, but even my 5'1", 105lb wife has zero issues with the controller, and she can play for hours.

The old Xbox controller was fucking gargantuan though.

And it was below the standards of M$'s social media policy?

Also somebody on Reddit screencapped it.

*Shrug*

I mean. Don't talk about real or implied stuff about something that hasn't been announced yet especially when it's under wraps. But it ain't help that he was acting pretty snooty at the same time.

Perhaps, but after the visceral hatred that the internet had for always online, why didn't Microsoft shut down those rumors? And don't say it's because the console hasn't been announced yet. They have people in PR whose sole purpose is to react to stuff like this. The CEO could've made a vague statement like, "Making an always online console doesn't seem like a smart idea." But they haven't said shit and as we all know: a non-denial is the same as a confirmation.

merging home entertainment even more. Further than netflix, etc. Maybe a built in streaming port? Make things easier and more plug and play. Just speculations though, wishful thinking.

22. "$300 with a two years of Xbox live of cable subscription."
In response to Reply # 5


  

          

I expect persistent Xbox live experience across phones, tablets, and pcs.

I want an entirely gesture and voice based experience. I shouldn't have to use a controller at all until it comes time to play the game.

The next box needs to come in under 4.5 pounds. Tablets have made demand smaller sizes.

I want free games as a future subscription holder.

The potential applications for it are immense though (with a proper setup).

Also a question to see if devs will support it too, but if this can gain traction it can be pretty sweet.

Respawn’s first game rumoured to be Xbox exclusive

Call of Duty creators’ project said to be an online mech shooter

Words: Tom Ivan 10 hours, 21 minutes ago

The first game from Respawn Entertainment is rumoured be exclusive to Xbox 360 and Microsoft’s next-gen console. While the California-based studio has largely kept the project under wraps since it was founded in 2010 by two Call of Duty co-creators - one of whom has since departed - the new IP is a “sci-fi oriented shooter” set to be published by EA.

The game is rumoured to be called Titan and is in line for an appearance at E3 in June, but if the latest report concerning its target platforms is on the money, it may well be unveiled alongside Microsoft’s next-gen Xbox at a reveal event scheduled for May 21. One Kotaku source claims the game will be exclusive to the next-gen Xbox, while another says Respawn is also outsourcing development of an Xbox 360 version. While it’s possible that the title could be a timed exclusive that eventually launches on other platforms, neither source indicated that this was the case.

The new game is reportedly being made using a modified version of Valve's Source engine. It is said to be a multiplayer-centric shooter that probably won’t feature a single-player campaign. Players will allegedly choose to join one of two warring factions, both of which can pilot giant, agile mechs – Titans - that can be brought down by foot soldiers.

Kotaku’s sources also claim that Microsoft has been aggressively seeking to sign exclusive third party content for the next-gen Xbox. One says that the platform holder is as much as six months behind schedule in producing games for the console, and that Microsoft recently cancelled several internal projects that weren’t shaping up as planned. Respawn, EA and Microsoft have yet to offer comment on the report.

In February, CVG reported that EA is preparing to announce a key exclusivity agreement at Microsoft’s next-gen Xbox reveal event. Be sure to check out our Xbox 720 rumor round-up for a preview of potential news to come.

The fact that the next Call of Duty footage will be revealed at the 720 press conference is HUGE. You also have Respawn's first game allegedly being 720 exclusive. There are also rumors that Battlefield 4 map packs will be timed exclusives on the 720 much like Call of Duty map packs already are, which seemed to be confirmed by EA's conspicuous absence at the PS4 reveal. Ubisoft seems to be the only third party publisher throwing Sony a bone, and I highly doubt people will buy a PS4 just so they can play 60 minutes of exclusive Watch Dogs content.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Apparently there's a rumor that while COD: Ghosts will be multiplatform on current gen consoles it might be a 720 exclusive on next gen game systems. Even if it was only a timed exclusive that would be devastating for Sony. That coupled with the rumor that Microsoft might release a $300 subscription subsidized SKU of the new console is making me feel really anxious about what Sony's going to do.

They can't charge $599 like they did for the launch PS3.

$79 for a controller.

100. "Live sports is a big deal for cord cutters like me."
In response to Reply # 97


  

          

I haven't had a cable subscription for 4 years.
I've made adjustments for all my viewing EXCEPT for Live Sports.
Outside of NBA League Pass, I watch what's on network TV or go to a sports bar.

If this could change that...

- games
- communication
- passive video content
- interactive content
- music
- sporting events

and proven kinetic and voice control technologies alongside traditional controllers.

The Xbox division in Microsoft looks like they may be one of the handful of groups out there that does not have it's head directly up its own ass.

In response to Reply # 107


  

          

I don't think we'll ever see that in a COD iteration ever.

The pick up and play, arcade-y style FPS is COD's bread and butter, and that formula is never going to change.

In response to Reply # 112


  

          

Classes that do different things to help the team instead of the individual.

I understand you can somewhat do it but I mean have a team set up of classes that really complement each other.

Even at the loading screens they could have where you could ping the map to let team mates know where you'd like to push or set up.

Give us anything.

But I don't see legitimate classes ever becoming the norm in COD's core multiplayer element.

I hope I'm proven wrong though; I enjoy the multi, but I want more than just shooting.

In response to Reply # 126

Say we have a stealth class that can activate a camo for a few secs but to not make it overpowered it has a long cool down.

Well to counter that there could be a class with a piece of equipment that disrupts that but has a limited range.

You could place that near your best players so they don't get stealth killed and can rack up those high end kill streaks.

That's where we can benefit the "team" aspect of TDM games and it forces other players to play differently due to what you're going up against. It encourages smarter gameplay rather than just non stop run and gun only.

Image it's a popular camping spot and you can throw something out of sight that fucks up sniper scopes and makes the area uncampable unless destroyed by a certain weapon.

134. "Those ideas sound fantastic."
In response to Reply # 130


  

          

Never gonna happen with COD's core userbase though. Sure, there are going to be little pockets of teamwork here and there when friends play together, but COD is largely an anonymous fanbase.

Just look at Battlefield 3, which has a very complentary class-based system, and see just how few people coordinate in general. Even for an objective-based game that did a number of things to encourage teamwork, you rarely see it emerge organically in public games.

For a game like COD which built its success almost as the antithesis to team-based gameplay, going too far in that direction would alienate and frustrate its core players.

You know what though

They could make a tactical mode and really change the game

It would be like 2 different MP games in one

Some maps could be exclusive to some modes also. Maybe even some weapons so people could play what they feel. Even play both modes to unlock things to make people play both modes to get the true experience.

Someone get me on the phone with IW!!

People are too satisfied with the same exact thing for years

They know the zombies will buy it

All we can do is vote with our money
If the only thing they're changing is the graphics they won't see my $60 and hopefully others will do the same.

143. "to tell the truth all these games are the same"
In response to Reply # 124


  

          

it's like once limitations are reached with the hardware, I swear they all become the same. I copped Bioshock Infinite and was like yeah it's cool and all but it's the same stuff different environment. Same with Devil May Cry and all these games I've picked up over the last couple years. But those get labeled as being more creative. Yes, their originals were creative but the new iterations are a new coat of paint with subtle new features. Now the stories are good, but I've never been into games for their stories. Part of the problem is that these games have become movies where you just patiently play through it and get to the big shock in the story line but the challenge is never really there. Gimme a challenging controller throwing game like Ninja Gaiden or Bayonetta and I'm good or give me some direct competition with people online. That's just what it's come down to for me. COD just has a special place with me because I love competitive fast reflex gaming. It could be better. I'm hoping Ghosts delivers.

No seriously... you need to play this before the next gen comes out, because it's completely unlike any other game out there.

In response to Reply # 137


  

          

it literally looks like a first generation laser disc player.

it's not gonna affect my buying decision as long as it fits on my shelf, but as a designer, it's pretty sad how little attention was paid to the industrial design this time around.

In response to Reply # 156


  

          

My point though was that the whole purpose of the Xbox is to integrate with the living room, in both form and function. Not sure what PS4 is gonna look like, but I'm guessing the days of "console-ization" are pretty much over. No fancy shapes, no weird domes, nothing way out in left field to differentiate itself from the rest of the devices attached to your TV.

Gamers are getting older, and I'm thinking that the design is being streamlined to represent those maturing tastes.

like, I'm pretty sure every game from here on out is going to want access to facebook and other social media.
When that chick said the Television will now be a 2 way street sounded really Orwellian.
I dont think I should be forced to have an always on stream of personal data as a means to play games.
So does this mean anonymity in gaming is dead?
Especially for OKP's now we are gonna know each other technically in real life,
alot of people put in a ton of work to remain anonymous.
Now that we hook up through gaming we are gonna have a huge amount of insight into each other's daily activities.

In response to Reply # 0
Tue May-21-13 01:48 PM by BrooklynWHAT

  

          

and you gotta pay to play the shit at someone else's house?
thats that shit i dont like. no wonder EA got rid of the online pass.
the redbox rental game just got shot in the ass too.

http://www.wired.com/gamelife/2013/05/xbox-one-analysis/

There’s one feature of Xbox One from which we can infer quite a few conclusions: You can install any game from the disc to the console’s hard drive, and then play that game whenever you like without having to put the disc in.

Wired asked Microsoft if installation would be mandatory. “On the new Xbox, all game discs are installed to the HDD to play,” the company responded in an emailed statement. Sounds mandatory to us.

What follows naturally from this is that each disc would have to be tied to a unique Xbox Live account, else you could take a single disc and pass it between everyone you know and copy the game over and over. Since this is clearly not going to happen, each disc must then only install for a single owner.

Microsoft did say that if a disc was used with a second account, that owner would be given the option to pay a fee and install the game from the disc, which would then mean that the new account would also own the game and could play it without the disc.

But what if a second person simply wanted to put the disc in and play the game without installing – and without paying extra? In other words, what happens to our traditional concept of a “used game”? This is a question for which Microsoft did not yet have an answer, and is surely something that game buyers (as well as renters and lenders) will want to know.

And what of the persistent rumors that Xbox One games will be “always online” – that is, that single-player games would require a constant online connection to function? As it turns out, those rumors were not unfounded, but the reality is not so draconian. Xbox One will give game developers the ability to create games that use Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing service, which means that they might be able to offload certain computing tasks to the cloud rather than process them on the Xbox One hardware itself. This would necessitate the game requiring a connection.

Are developers forced to create games that have these online features, and are thus not playable offline? They are not, Xbox exec Whitten said to Wired — but “I hope they do.” So the always-online future may come in incremental steps.

I don't bring my games over other peoples houses.

In fact, for me this is just an entertainment box that just happens to let me play NBA 2K (and now watch the Bulls game at the same time).

>you dont borrow games from friends?

I don't buy a lot of games to begin with.
But when I do, I know about that investment going in.
I mean, what's $65? I have a job. *shrug*
Besides, I trust my gut to buy something I know I'll like.
So I don't need to give it a test run.

More than anything, the gaming aspect of this new machine is pretty low for me.

NBA 2KX
GTA
Watch Dogs
(hopefully) Half-Life 3

I'll play those games for the next 7-9 years and be OK.

they've both been doing that all along, and I feel that with the current gen models, Xbox 360 is way ahead of Sony as far as entertainment / apps (only knock on it is the lack of a blu ray player for physical media)

Neither console when they first launched was focused on entertainment the way we consume it today. Shit, the iPhone didnt even come out until a year later, and the whole concept of "apps" hadnt even evolved yet.

You cant tell me Sony pioneered that on a console.

In response to Reply # 173
Tue May-21-13 04:51 PM by southphillyman

  

          

the fact it wasn't just about games was one of it's "weaknesses" when it launched , pushing bluray and the social aspect of home etc
obviously over time the 360 started to integrate and copy other lil elements: bandwagoning the wii success with kinect, fleshing out it's own media offerings etc
and for my money i prefer sonys ui. tho both of the current systems have some real dumb workflows .....some of which i'm sure are intentionally bad (try converting a live subscription from month to month to yearly if you don't believe me)
that being said since you had no real answer for my original question i'll take that as confirmation about the event today (haven't watched)

Anyways, this is going to be a war of marketing cos essentially PS4 and Xbox are just PC's now. Same stuff different wrapping paper.

180. "That was pretty much a worst case scenario come to life"
In response to Reply # 0


          

*disclaimer* - I am a current xbox 360 owner

I think if you polled actual gamers about what their worst fears coming into this press conference, the list of responses would read something like this:

- focusing on entertainment rather than games
- focusing on kinect
- always-on DRM
- no BC
- pay-to-play multiplayer

Basically, the answer to each of the above points was the wrong one. They led off the conference by talking about media features for half an hour. Most of the kinect features they showed were laughable - literally everything they showed SHOULD ALREADY BE POSSIBLE with the current kinect. In fact, Microsoft confirmed that they REMOVED from the 360 kinect the capability to turn on your console via voice command. Similar with smartglass - we can already do pretty much all of that shit on our 360s!

Very disappointing, IMO.

Are you going to actually press that one single button on your TV remote control? How barbaric.

How on earth are you going to track your fantasy stats? Not with that tablet or laptop that already does it better, I hope...

Lol, this presentation was such a fail. It was like if you took some guy in 1999 and asked him to predict what our technology would be like in 2020, this is what he would come up with. "We need something that let's you switch to cable TV easier!" "What if...your TV guide wasn't in a magazine but instead was on your game console!!!"

Terrible...

You forgot the fact that Microsoft will require you to pay a fee to play a used game.

Dude, this is that Star Wars stuff. Microsoft put legit apps on your console now. The one should play nice with all your Microsoft products meaning so perpetual syncing of information. You know the One means we're getting Xbox branded surface RT tablets with Kinect cameras.

Most importantly, users don't have to use a controller to navigate anymore! I hope you can search the web and download with the One. Imagine posting to OKP by dictation. Finally, this console will be subsidized so stop whining. It should cost $300 with two years of live.

But keep the software for it...

Grand Theft Auto 5 is coming out for 360 and PS3...I would love to have the option to play this on my PS4 or Xbox One...

It's more of a nice to have...but it's a much stronger nice to have than some of the feature mentioned.

For me, I hope they fix the range needed for Kinect to work. Because if Kinect is required to use the system, they might be a turn off for me.

are always dead

i do the smart thing and have them turn off automatically after 10 mins of not being used, but man. maybe it's on me for not investing in chargers, but why should i have to? what other modern technology do we still have to put A, AA, AAA etc... batteries into besides 360 controllers and tv remotes. i think it adds a cost and burden of having to make sure you keep them in stock that could easily be outweighed by making the controllers rechargeable


with that said, it's not a game changer for me. i'll still cop both systems when i have the $ to do so.

get the charger kit. Microsoft makes it themselves so you don't have to fret about bootleg third party accessory quality.

I had one for about five years until it stopped holding charges properly, just replaced it recently. haven't bought a set of AAs for my Xbox once since I owned it.

because if they're asking people to buy an accessory for their expensive game pad just to get on Sony's level, that sounds like nickel and diming. I understand why the 360 pad wasn't USB-charged, but it makes no sense in 2013.

205. "The next console war pits living room against cloud (swipe)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

http://www.theverge.com/2013/5/21/4352908/xbox-one-vs-playstation-4-living-room-hub-or-streaming-cloud

We think of video game consoles as being principally about, well, the games. But when the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 went head-to-head in 2006, it wasn't games that truly determined the victor. What eventually drove the Xbox 360 to first place was the underlying vision — a place where your friends could connect, chat, and compete — as well as additions that no one saw coming, including Microsoft's Kinect and Netflix.

Based on what we now know about the next Xbox and PlayStation, we can expect a fairly similar scenario this time around. As far as games are concerned, the hardware sounds quite similar out of the box. Both consoles promise to track your motions, power on instantly, and seamlessly update themselves in the background, among many other common features.

XBOX AND PLAYSTATION FANS COULD FIND THEMSELVES IN VERY DIFFERENT PLACES DOWN THE ROAD

But if we look at that long-term vision, new Xbox and PlayStation fans could find themselves in very different places down the road. Microsoft wants its box to be the center of your living room in every way, while Sony is promising a future where you theoretically might not even need a powerful box in your home.

Here's 10 minutes in the life of a future PlayStation 4 owner, should Sony's vision pan out: press a button to instantly wake your console, sign into your account, and go channel surfing through a catalogue of games. Not browsing pictures and descriptions of games, mind you, but clicking through channel after TV channel filled with video footage, both live and pre-recorded, of your friends actually playing. When you hit upon a game you like, you press another button to start playing it instantly too: Sony promises to let you play games as they download, and stream others outright to the game console.

Then, say you need to get up and walk somewhere. With many games, you'll be able to take it right with you, continuing your progress on a PlayStation Vita handheld as you walk around the house, or more likely, continue to play (or at least watch others play) from an internet-connected tablet or smartphone wherever you go. While the box itself will be a requirement in the short term (while Sony figures streaming out) future PlayStations could theoretically just be any controller and screen connected to the cloud.

In Microsoft's vision, by contrast, that future Xbox owner will have a rather different experience. Microsoft wants its new Xbox One to erase the boundary between set-top box and TV, to become the one device in your living room. You'll simply say "Xbox On" to instantly turn on your entire immersive living room entertainment system. JUST SAY "XBOX ON" TO FIRE UP YOUR LIVING ROOM The voice command will fire up the console, your receiver, and your TV simultaneously, and the new Kinect camera will recognize your body and face, automatically signing you into your profile and preparing you to consume several kinds of content at a moment's notice. Where you'll be channel surfing games on the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One will let you literally channel surf live TV, assuming the infrared holds up. You'll issue rapid-fire voice commands to switch between games, web, apps, and television, or use the multitasking chops of the underlying Windows 8 operating system to take a Skype voice call and play your game simultaneously. And when it is time to game, you won't have to swap discs: you'll have already stored them on the Xbox One's hard drive.

While the power of the cloud will also contribute to the games that Microsoft's envisioning, allowing you to play downloadable titles as they install, the future goal is rather that computational power gets piped into your console to make those games more immersive. After all, in Microsoft's visions, all roads lead to your living room hub. All information goes there. And should Microsoft's Illumiroom dreams come true, that might be a fantastic decision, because the Xbox One could use that information to turn your living room into the long-awaited holodeck.

Assuming that neither Sony nor Microsoft manage an outright coup with a better price, a better release date, or sufficiently compelling exclusive games, this is the choice you'll make: do you bet on the company who wants to let you take a traditional gaming experience anywhere you'd care to be, or the one that demands you stand still in exchange for increased immersion and functionality?

what if your console crashes, do you have to re-buy all your games? Will MS allow you to transfer your game loads to your new console without paying a fee?
Are the games tied to the console or to the XBL account and console? If the later, what if you want sell your console with the games; can you not sell the games because it tied to your XBL account?

Sounds like if you sell games, not only will they have to pay you for the game, theyd also have to pay to activate the game on the console.

220. "The PS4 has a 50 percent more powerful GPU (Swipe)"
In response to Reply # 0

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-spec-analysis-xbox-one

So, again through a process of extrapolation from the drip-feed of hard facts, the make-up of the One's GPU is confirmed - 12 compute units each capable of 64 ops/clock gives us the 768 total revealed by Microsoft and thus, by extension, the 1.2 teraflop graphics core. So that's another tick on the Durango leaked spec that has been transposed across to the final Xbox One architecture and the proof we need that PlayStation 4's 18 CU graphics core has 50 per cent more raw power than the GPU in the new Microsoft console.

Microsoft wants you "to have a relationship" with your TV, and to that end, Xbox One has a new connection that no other console possesses - an HDMI input (supporting 1080p, 3D, even 4K - at least the 30Hz version of it supported in HDMI 1.4a). The idea is that you can daisy-chain your existing set-top box into the new console and seamlessly switch between TV and gameplay, and even run apps in parallel with both of them. So, for example, in theory, you can play Forza 5, switch over to watch the Formula One and take a Skype call simultaneously.

Doesn't mean I need (or want) my console to do it though.

I was initially (and still am) impressed with the move towards full living room integration, but that focus doesn't give me better games though. I'm sure E3 will have a bigger emphasis on the One's games (what a fucking terrible name), but I do agree with the sentiment that game-focused features were pretty light during the unveiling. And, like it was framed in the article above, do I care more about living room features or cloud features?

What's interesting about this generation is that Sony and Microsoft seemed to have flip positions from last generation: the PS4 now seems like the more open, web-based platform while the NeXtBox is more focused on the living room and its own ecosystem.

226. "Yeah... it's adding features we never wanted in a console."
In response to Reply # 224


  

          

But I think it would be sick to browse what my friends are playing, when they're playing it. I would never play FIFA, but I could watch my buddies play FIFA for hours.

I actually do that now with Google Hangouts. I'll tell them about some game I'm playing, then Hangouts lets me pick specific windows to show the game to them while I'm playing. It stutters and the frame rate isn't perfect, but if I can get that feature streamlined in a console experience, that is right up my alley.

230. "They are adding these features because there's nowhere else to go."
In response to Reply # 226


  

          

I mean, that's really it. They added motion last gen. They've already pretty much maxed out on graphics and sound. And they've made everyone come to expect a variety of internet apps. Where else do they have to go?

They drew the only parallel they could. Remember, neither of these companies are "gaming" companies. Sony is a consumer electronics company, and Microsoft is a software company. I really don't expect anything less.

You're such pests...now, what is it you want? In your depths of your ignorance, what is it you want? Well, whatever it is you want, I can't deliver because I just don't see it. - Orson Welles
