Franks one of my mains in Marvel Capcom 3 which I play regularly, but could never get into it.

PS4 will probably have it a year or so after it's on Xbox1. I wouldn't blame anyone who couldn't wait though. That games looks mind-blowing. The lack of a single player tells me the developers really know what they're doing.

I don't plan on keeping both. I've never had more than one system at any given time. I'm a casual gamer and can't see myself playing games enough to justify buying two systems. So I plan on flipping one on Ebay. 99% sure it will be the PS4. I pre-ordered from Amazon so I won't get charged until they're ready to ship. So I can always change my mind on ordering either one and not be out of pocket on some $$$.

I'm just debating on it because for $100 more I can get a nice 85mm lens.

At the same time, these things will probably be in short supply, so buying one to flip seems like a good idea (but when's the last time that actually worked? Wii?)

38. "Actually, I think the Kinect could be huge."
In response to Reply # 37


  

          

It's not talked about often enough with the DRM discussion, but if the Kinect's capabilities are as robust as claimed, then it could be a big step in motion gaming. If normal human responses can be measured and "game-ified" then all the gimmicky bullshit might go by the wayside (imagine combining it with the Oculus Rift).

http://www.theverge.com/2013/6/11/4420610/xbox-one-kinect-trades-gimmicks-for-true-interactivity

The first version of Kinect promised to completely change how we play games. Instead of sitting on our couch with a controller, we'd be running, dancing, throwing, and shouting our way through level after level. The new version of Kinect, the one that will ship with every Xbox One console in November, initially seemed like more of the same: more data, more accuracy, to the same end. But as we talk to game developers at E3 2013, it's quickly becoming clear that the next generation of motion gaming isn't about making us stand in front of our TVs and play. It's about watching us play, as we've always played, and reacting in kind.

Take Ryse: Son of Rome, for instance. The game is played with your controller — you don't use your arm to swing your sword, or pull an arrow out of your eye. Instead, you shout "archers!" to summon some medieval aerial support, and beckon your men forward with your arm. You do all this from your couch: every part of Ryse works with your controller, parts of it are just better with Kinect.

The game's producers called it "mash to mastery," allowing people to play however they want. You want to pound buttons, hoping to survive the onslaught of barbarians? Great. But if you learn to use Kinect, to direct your men with your arms and your voice, and then to pair that with smarter and faster button presses, you'll be a much better (and more brutal) executioner.

I asked the Ryse producers and directors why the game is coming out now, fully two years after it was first announced at E3 2011. Their answer related to the Kinect's development. "It was announced as a Kinect game, where you would just stand in front of the TV and play like that. But as the Crytek team started developing the game and story further, they realized that the setting, the story, the things you want to do just better fit a third-person combat game." The new Kinect, they said, allowed them to create that kind of game and still have the fun, interactive features Kinect offers.

In Dead Rising 3, an open-world zombie game that seems to be part Grand Theft Auto and part Kingdom Rush, your controller is once again your friend. Your Kinect might be your enemy. Zombies can hear you talking, even rustling on your couch, and they'll come after you. (Prepare to play Dead Rising 3 in the quietest room you can find.) Once they find you, if you wriggle on your couch as you presumably would if a zombie were attempting to eat your entire face all at once, you'll wriggle the zombie off you. The controller stays in your hands, but as you react to the game, the game reacts to you.

These are two of Microsoft's key Xbox One titles, and they're using Kinect in a way that might finally make it palatable to gamers hardcore and casual alike. You don't need to use the Kinect, but the games are more fun and more immersive when you use it — and you'll be better at the game, too.

In a more futuristic demo called "Reflex," Xbox reps took the idea even further. As we walked through a Tron-like level, we could raise the controller over our face to activate our shield, touch our temple to activate our X-ray vision, and duck out of the way to, well, duck out of the way. These are activities that make sense, that we might even reflexively do anyway while we game — I know I lean a little every time I try to dodge a bullet in Halo. With an always-on, always-watching, always-listening Kinect, our surroundings and our actions become part of the game.

"We've exposed these reflexes to developers in a way that thinks of your spine as a thumbstick," I was told during the Xbox hardware demonstration. "We're able to bring natural, intuitive, instinctive Kinect input in a way that's thrilling even to the most hardcore gamers." Kinect may have more capabilities than ever, and more features than any developer seems to be currently using, but as we see developers continue to roll out their games in the coming months, Xbox One Kinect games will win big by thinking small.

Don't make me stand in front of my TV and wave my arms like a lunatic — know when I flinch, and do something about it.

Obviously. It's region-locked.

35. "PS4."
In response to Reply # 0


          

I've gone from NES > SNES > N64 > XBox > Xbox 360, and I've never owned a PlayStation myself. Played PS1 and PS2 a ton through family and friends, however, but I've spent almost no time on a PS3. I really miss fighting games, and the XBox controller was complete shit for them, so I'm looking forward to playing them again.

Kind of funny that M$ isn't even trying in Japan anymore. Guessing the next Idolm@ster will be on PS4 then? I really like that it's region-free. I'm curious as to whether or not the Blu-Ray player will be region-free as well then.

Australia is an extreme example, but (IIRC) the PS4 there will be about $549. So it would actually be cheaper for Aussies to buy from, say, Amazon here and just pay the shipping costs.

Edit: Or if people like to import games (read: Japan), then they don't have to worry if it plays on the system.

In response to Reply # 40


  

          

and while I don't make enough to justify it, there are definitely people out there that have PS+ accounts in both the States and Europe so that they can get in on the European deals as well. Sleeping Dogs and XCOM were on their service months before the US, and they've generally gotten bigger budget titles like Red Dead Redemption and Arkham City.

Part of the reason I don't play my PS3 much is the online setup. Then when they have a decent store, they turn into the slowest clunkiest mess that it makes the nintendo eshop seem like iTunes.

I'm hoping that i can make a little change from the sale of one to pay for the majority, or all, of the other. The one i keep initially with depend on the games available at, or near, launch.

I ordered through Amazon. They don't charge you on pre-orders until they pepare your order for shipment. You can cancel at anytime.

In response to Reply # 0


          

I've never pre-ordered before and was just wondering how it works (always camped or waited a few months in the past)?

I've started to pre-order on amazon and bestbuy and it looks like when you get to the "confirm purchase" part that it's going to swipe the full amount right then and then I get scared cuz I don't want that $400 charge today haha.

57. "there is a temporary charge"
In response to Reply # 51


  

          

i was worried about this too so i called up Best Buy. they put a temporary charge immediately after ordering to check that the account is valid, after about 48 hours the charge should drop off. the full amount will be charge when the item is released so you just have to make sure that you have enough money in the account at that time.

i preordered from amazon as well, the order went through and they didn't even do a temp charge. in their FAQs page is specifically said that it will charge when the item is released.

In response to Reply # 51


  

          

that they put an initial hold on your card (which is no biggie) but then "ping" it once every week or so to make sure you still have the funds in the account to cover the full cost of the system. I've even seen some complaints of people having to holds going on at once (I'm not cakey enough to have $800 worth of holds on my card).

It's June and that shit doesn't come out til November or December. I'm not really trying to have them putting on and taking off a $400 hold on my card until then, or worse, fucking up like they have in numerous instances I've read about online. I'll just go someplace in person and pre-order.

I spoke with a customer service rep and they said if it's a credit card you're not charged until it ships.

If you use a debit card, then it would be charged when you place the order. I didn't get into whether the debit card has a Visa logo, can be used as a credit card, etc. I just used a credit card to be on the safe side.

Unless Sony fucks me and puts out 4 million of them. I always seem to have bad luck when it comes to profiteering. But if I can't find any takers, I guess I can always return them.

In response to Reply # 58


  

          

Prob just a random date they picked since the official date haven't been announced yet.

Oh and if anyone is wondering I ordered my PS4 like a day or two after the e3 announcement and I had to order the standard edition which is the same but just means I couldn't get it on launch day. Amazon emailed me this weekend and said they bumped me up to launch day because they're going to get more than they initially planned.

Still hope for people that ordered late

There's a lot of time we don't have internet, or extremly unreliable internet, so that whole always connected bullshit doesn't really work.

Which sucks, because I prefer my 360 to my PS3

This really will be a change. I like that it's finally not girly sized anymore. While I loved the D-pad on the playstation, I couldn't grasp the controller comfortably. Can't wait to try the new joint.

90. "yea, but we're pretty alone there it seems."
In response to Reply # 77


  

          

I've always felt like the Dual Shock was the best things about the N64 controller and the SNES controller since the day it was in stores, and therefore the most obvious controller ever. But it's even more obvious that for whatever reason I appear to either have small hands or be comfortable having everything so compact because a slightly bigger controller is obviously what the people want.



Having not held the controller I'm a lot more worried about the DS4 than a lot of the press seems to be. It looks like a radical change, and those quarters of an inch(es) wider. I'm hoping I'm not all of a sudden lost at sea without a controller; these dudes are from Japan and have always toed the middle ground on size in the past, though. I've got to imagine they know what they're doing.

In response to Reply # 77


  

          

The sixaxis only version was crazy light and felt flimsy. I added extended triggers to all my DS3/Sixaxis controllers. The 360 grip is probably the best grip to me because it's wider. We will see about the DS4 grip I looks like Sony did a real feat here.

"Microsoft is pushing ahead with new technology that will change how things work," Drayer told us. "Everybody got locked out of Xbox One. For instance, the Madcatz guys make some great fighting sticks for the Xbox 360. Those aren't going to work with your Xbox One. It's the nature of moving from one platform to another."

Unfortunately, this is the exact same thing we've been hearing from Microsoft about chat. The company reiterated to us today that "Only Xbox One controllers and accessories will work with the new console."

Turns out there's a Sony store in Philly at the Comcast tower thing (that's gotta be like, the nexus of all corporate evil or something).

Anyway, it was $50 down and came with a spiffy little card. The guy that took my pre-order said they weren't sure if it was going to be a midnight launch because they only stay open when that building is open, but he was confident that everyone that pre-ordered would get a system on day one.

88. "Not true."
In response to Reply # 86


  

          

Both League of Legends and Dota 2 have pulled off sophisticated reputation systems to good success:

http://blog.dota2.com/2013/05/communication-reports/

X1 will have its own system obviously (and there's no guarantee it will actually work), but fact is this type of online behavior has been studied for quite some time.

And I don't want to give Microsoft too much credit yet, but at the very least it's great that they're trying to fix the Xbox's reputation as the console filled with the 12 year old kids screaming epithets.

In response to Reply # 93


  

          

To be honest though, I've never played LOL or DOTA, just because they would absolutely consume me. And the requisite teamwork needed to succeed in these types of games will inevitably invite griefers of every form.

But I think a big factor with these reputation systems is that they're so predicated on user participation. I would imagine most people experiencing abuse would just grumble and KIM. Most probably wouldn't take the effort needed to report the abusers and go through the process to punish someone.

With that said, this sort of sophistication in policing players still feels like it's in its infancy. Game developers are usually preoccupied with ensuring their game behaves well, not necessarily that their *players* will. I don't think DOTA or X1 (or any system really) will ever truly eliminate bad eggs, but at least it's encouraging that companies are willing to put more effort into it.

horde all of the worst ideas in one place and let them fester. Sounds like lackadaisically taking care of an insect problem.

Nice to see anyone try anything. Since I'm strictly PS3 I don't see nearly a third of what I'm sure 360 users experience since no one owns mics anyway, but that said most of the mics I DO run into then are either dads taking care of their kids / getting drunk with their friends, or motherfuckers with music too loud or catchphrases too hateful.

that gets my goat. I have a 250GB hard drive but more than half of that is taken up by...whatever it is, and since I got back into gaming with PS+ I've been mostly digital. But going back to finish a game I put aside and deleted for a while is just a pain in the ass, especially if I downloaded it two years ago I'll be searching for it for 10 minutes on top of the download time.

113. "Microsoft To Announce Indie Self-Publishing, New Cert Process"
In response to Reply # 0
Wed Jul-24-13 02:55 PM by wallysmith

  

          

Nice work, MS... this is big. I've been such a big fan of the creativity of indie games the past few years so it's good to see that MS is supporting that.

http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2013/07/24/microsoft-to-announce-indie-self-publishing-new-certification-process.aspx

Another unpopular Microsoft policy appears to be heading for the history books. Sources tell Game Informer that the company is reversing course on its publishing requirements. This will allow independent studios to access digital distribution without a publishing partner.

Independent publishing was a key platform in Sony's E3 2013 press conference, bringing a number of developers on stage. Supergiant Games' Transistor, Abe's Oddysee: New 'n' Tasty from Oddworld Inhabitants and Just Add Water, and Don't Starve from Mark of the Ninja studio Klei Entertainment were just some of the titles on display.

In contrast, criticism of Microsoft's curated approach to its marketplace has amplified in recent months, with several former partners saying they will never work with them again. Oddworld creator Lorne Lanning boldly said of Microsoft's indie policy, "There's one party that's making it very clear they're not interested."

The cacophony of naysayers drove Microsoft to rethink its position. Under the new directive, developers can set their own release dates and pricing, which should make the erratic nature of Xbox Live releases less problematic for creators who want to handle their own marketing.

Additionally, we have learned that Microsoft is drastically overhauling its certification process. The company will use a model similar to iTunes and is targeting a 14-day turnaround for an approvals. Instead of extensive code checking, the company will be looking for terms of service violations and significant bugs.

We've also been told, but cannot confirm, that every Xbox One unit can be converted to a debug console. Instead of specific hardware units, Microsoft can authorize a console ID to play pre-release code. This is in line with information we've received about a new process for beta tests. They will be run via hardware provisioning on Xbox One, with the process reportedly to be enabled for up to 25,000 users per test at launch. Given the ability to provision for beta testing, the ability to enable retail hardware for pre-release code seems feasible.

We've reached out to Microsoft for comment.

Do you see what I did there. I stated the company whom I brought merchandise from did a bad thing but it didn't effect me financially or hamper with my gaming experience.

Can you xbots do the same? Nope you guys are in it cause Microsoft is your friend. You guys are symbiotes and Microshit is the teat. Only you fucking morons will blame other gamers for losing 24hr DRM and Family Sharing. Only you fucking tools will cry about the exclusives you guys have when its pretty much the same 2 games spit back at you 4-5 times.
I wont even bring up the plea copping I saw in all those RROD post from back in the day.

I play games where I prefer to play games. if the ps4 has online that isn't the worst thing possible, then I might actually use it.

if the xbox one is as good to use as the 360 is, then I'll probably use it. that's how it works.

yall are the ones making a religious choice on company name. I think about actually playing games.

if they both have the same approach, you get the same options from both. I'd rather they try completely different styles and compete that way.

In response to Reply # 134


  

          

They need to up their exposure and do a price cut; at this point the higher SKU is only $50 less than PS4's price point. If they wait too long to do the price cut they'll run into users that are just going to wait for the new consoles.

And they still have a major branding problem... many people still think Wii U is just an extension of the Wii, not a brand new system.

$350 is retarded given what PS4 and Xbox One are about to unleash on the pubic.

and by a HUGE margin
egg on xbox's face but flip flopping on everything is better than going to market as some shit no one wants
they had to make these changes

and honestly they flip flopped on a lot of things last gen too and completely took sonys "living room entertainment hub" steez and ran wit it
so it's nothing new. you adapt to the market, etc

i see them adjusting with what people want. they didnt go back and forth, they just took away and added as requested. I think it's a lesson learned. I actually wish they stuck to their guns, I had no issues with what they proposed from getgo

127. "Stuck to their guns about not allowing self publishing?"
In response to Reply # 126


  

          

Microsoft's policies were terrible for indie games... $30k for title updates after the first one's free? There have been plenty of indie devs that spoke out against Microsoft's policies.

And having always-on DRM would have been fine had they balanced it with an incentive to the consumers... pulling it that quickly meant they really didn't have much (if anything) to offer to consumers to justify the DRM.

You'll need to pay for premium membership to play (non-free-to-play) games online with a PS4, but not to share them: Sony prez Shuhei Yoshida clarified on Twitter today that you can stream and record PS4 gameplay footage without paying any PlayStation Plus fees.

In contrast, yesterday Microsoft clarified that you'll need an Xbox Live Gold account in order to use the Xbox One's Game DVR feature, which also lets you record and upload game footage.

Both next-gen consoles will be out this holiday season.

I'll probably cancel that other PS4 at Amazon. I just did it cuz it was up and available. lol. Then I did 1 Xbox One at Walmart. If I do keep that Amazon PS4, I'm going to sell it immediately. The 2nd Xbox One I preordered is for the kids. They say that's all they want for Christmas.

Xbox Live Gold Family Pack Conversion to Individual Memberships


As a valued Xbox Live Gold member, we'd like to thank you and your family for being part of the Gold community.

We continually evaluate our offerings and are always working to provide services that best meet the needs of our customers.




Starting August 27, 2013, we will be converting each activated account on your Gold Family Pack to an individual Xbox Live Gold membership to prepare for new upcoming features on Xbox Live Gold. Rest assured, each individual membership will work on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Through the new Home Gold feature on Xbox One, a single Xbox Live Gold membership will allow anyone in your home to enjoy many Gold features like multiplayer, access to Gold entertainment apps, and more on your Xbox One.*

As a bonus, we will give each converted individual Xbox Live Gold membership from your Gold Family Pack an extra 3 months of Gold (in addition to the time remaining on your membership term).**

Before your memberships convert, you can still add family members to your Xbox Live Gold Family Pack, for a total of up to four accounts. However, any unassigned secondary accounts will no longer be accessible after your conversion. Please be sure to update your secondary accounts here.
After your memberships convert, the only Gold Family Pack features that will no longer be available are activity monitoring reports and Microsoft Points allowances. Activity monitoring reports will deactivate at the time of Gold Family Pack conversion, whereas the Microsoft Points allowance feature will no longer be available after the next Xbox 360 system update. Xbox Live family settings, including parental controls for what your kids can access and play on or offline, will still be available.

More Info >>



We hope you enjoy your 3 bonus months of Xbox Live Gold and continue to benefit from your Xbox Live Gold memberships on Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Sincerely,
The Xbox Live Team

148. "Gold accounts become more like PS+ accounts; Windows doesn't boot 360"

http://kotaku.com/xbox-one-ditches-one-of-xbox-lives-more-annoying-limit-1082595464

Adding onto what Lach posted above, Gold accounts can now provide benefits to every user on your "home" system, which I guess wasn't the case on 360? For those without PS+/PS3s, anything bought on the system's "admin" account can be used by any of the other user profiles on that system so long as the admin's subscription hasn't lapsed. This article makes it sound like that was never the case on 360, but soon will be?

Also, the home/admin console takes precedence over any other logins, meaning if you log into your account at a friend's house but your girlfriend/brother/parent wants to play on your home system, now they won't get blocked out.

The Games for Windows Live shift sounds nice and proper, too, although having never owned a 360 I can't relate, I have had that issue once with my Steam account across a laptop and desktop.

In response to Reply # 183


  

          

GTA IV released April 29 of 08 and the Windows version launched December 2, a 7 month window.

My OTHER guess would be that they create the DLC content simultaneously for both generations, and then in a year and change when those are done Rockstar busts out a big Complete Edition style package "complete with hi-res textures and upgraded physics models thanks to the power of PS4!"

possible PS4 remote play for "most" games to drop as well as cheaper prices for memory to add in for the Vita.

Soooo.. are we all excited for the Vita yet?! EH?! (/^o^)/

In response to Reply # 185


  

          

is the memory card situation.

But those are supposed to be dropping in price soon.

Great titles are coming out for it and the remote play shit is killer.

It has the potential to be the best handheld since the GBA.

You know it's drama, but it sound real good.

In response to Reply # 185


  

          

regardless of price. but will I get one anytime soon? doubt it. I still live in a world where $200, or $150, or $100, is a lot of money. And I just don't see myself gaming on the go because I'm so rarely on the go alone and I sleep in the same room as my PS3.

189. "Yea, copped it Tuesday"
In response to Reply # 185


  

          

I'd been wanting one for a while. The price drop and the promise of Borderlands 2 made my decision for me. Also, I wanted a portable Spelunky (next week! hype) machine, and I'm gonna wanna play Persona 4 Golden once I beat Persona 3 Portable.

So far, I'm enjoying it. I beat Hotline Miami and had a blast (holy shit that soundtrack is GOOD!). I played some of Uncharted and it's okay. The shooting feels a bit off to be honest though. Played a little bit of Wipeout and holy shit is that good! I remember hearing that the Vita version wasn't that great but fuck that noise, it looks and plays as good as the PS3 one as far as I can tell. I also downloaded Dive Kick. Can't beat S-Kill for the life of me.

Xbox Live Gold Family Pack Conversion to Individual Memberships


As a valued Xbox Live Gold member, we’d like to thank you and your family for being part of the Gold community.

We continually evaluate our offerings and are always working to provide services that best meet the needs of our customers.




Starting this week, we will be converting each activated account on your Gold Family Pack to an individual Xbox Live Gold membership to prepare for new upcoming features on Xbox Live Gold. Rest assured, each individual membership will work on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Through the new Home Gold feature on Xbox One, a single Xbox Live Gold membership will allow anyone in your home to enjoy many Gold features like multiplayer, access to Gold entertainment apps, and more on your Xbox One.*

As a bonus, we will give each converted individual Xbox Live Gold membership from your Gold Family Pack an extra 3 months of Gold in addition to the time remaining on your membership term).**

When your memberships convert, any Microsoft Points you have in your Microsoft account will be retired. We’ll add to your account an amount of currency equal to or greater than the Marketplace value of your Microsoft Points. You’ll receive confirmation of that transition separately (more Info).

Before your memberships convert, you can still add family members to your Xbox Live Gold Family Pack, for a total of up to four accounts. However, any unassigned secondary accounts will no longer be accessible after your conversion. Please be sure to update your secondary accounts here.
After your memberships convert, the only Gold Family Pack features that will no longer be available are activity monitoring reports and Microsoft Points allowances. Activity monitoring reports will deactivate at the time of Gold Family Pack conversion, whereas the Microsoft Points allowance feature will no longer be available after the next Xbox 360 system update. Xbox Live family settings, including parental controls for what your kids can access and play on or offline, will still be available.

More Info >>



We hope you enjoy your 3 bonus months of Xbox Live Gold and continue to benefit from your Xbox Live Gold memberships on Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Sincerely,

and I have no interest in an XBox due to budget and general lack of enthusiasm for the controller.


also, part of me would REALLY like Cerny's game Knack to be good since it's been basically a whole generation since that kind of game had any traction (I know they still make Ratchet games but it's not the same as those first three in terms of "woah new stuff", at least I haven't been compelled to look into them) and it'd be nice to see this generation take another look at more light-hearted, platforming-style action games rather than the huge "realistic" spectacles we've been put through over and over again.

you know, i'd love to get back into the game with the OKP posse's, but i've been out so long that any time i tried out multi with the last few iterations of the game i just get destroyed. was fun back in the day though, but nowadays i just redbox these games and play the campaigns.

I'm wondering how they are managing to be the only retailer that is still taking pre-orders for the PS4. Fucking Sears can sell out but Target still has them available?

I don't think they are going to have a supply problem...the fact that preorders are still available with two months to go is out of the ordinary.

I just preordered another one this week inside my local walmart just to be ready cuz I know folk are going to go nuts around Thanksgiving looking for them. Xbox Ones on the other hand are still in abundance. I got 1 preordered at best buy, 1 at walmart and then 2 on amazon. I'm going to be cancelling the ones on amazon soon if I keep seeing everyone still taking preorders come October.

225. "Power struggle: the real differences between PS4 and Xbox One performanc..."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

As usual, the exclusives will dictate purchase decisions.

http://www.edge-online.com/news/power-struggle-the-real-differences-between-ps4-and-xbox-one-performance/

PlayStation 4 is currently around 50 per cent faster than its rival Xbox One. Multiple high-level game development sources have described the difference in performance between the consoles as “significant” and “obvious.”

Our contacts have told us that memory reads on PS4 are 40-50 per cent quicker than Xbox One, and its ALU (Arithmetic Logic Unit) is around 50 per cent faster. One basic example we were given suggested that without optimisation for either console, a platform-agnostic development build can run at around 30FPS in 1920×1080 on PS4, but it’ll run at “20-something” FPS in 1600×900 on Xbox One. “Xbox One is weaker and it’s a pain to use its ESRAM,” concluded one developer.

Microsoft is aware of the problem and, having recently upped the clock speed of Xbox One, is working hard to close the gap on PS4, though one developer we spoke to downplayed the move. “The clock speed update is not significant, it does not change things that much,” he said. “Of course, something is better than nothing.”

Even this close to launch, “the hardware isn’t locked,” said another source. Sony and Microsoft are each still working on the graphics drivers for each console, and Xbox One is lagging behind in this regard – Microsoft “has been late on their drivers and that has been hurting them,” said one source. Another described Xbox One’s graphics drivers less charitably as “horrible”. Both consoles’ graphics drivers will continue to improve right up to – and beyond – launch, which will even up the difference in performance a little.

Xbox One does, however, boast superior performance to PS4 in other ways. “Let’s say you are using procedural generation or raytracing via parametric surfaces – that is, using a lot of memory writes and not much texturing or ALU – Xbox One will be likely be faster,” said one developer.

Both platform holders are, of course, encouraging developers to take advantage of each console’s unique features (the DualShock 4’s touch pad and Kinect, for example) but there’s little enthusiasm for either among the developers we spoke to. “They really want us to make use of platform specific stuff to give their version a leg up over the other,” said one source. “But unless there’s a good design reason or incentive we rarely do.”

Indeed, despite that gulf in speed, the differences between cross platform launch window games will be negligible; with tight deadlines to meet, it’s more expedient for developers to deliberately create near-identical versions.

“The poor drivers have made it difficult to push either of them, and the developers aren’t familiar with the hardware yet,“ said one source. Another stated that we’ll begin to see far greater use of each platform’s unique features once we’re past the first wave of releases, when developers have more time and experience with each console’s quirks.

One source even suggested that enforcing parity across consoles could become a political issue between platform holders, developers and publishers. They said that it could damage perceptions of a cross platform title, not to mention Xbox One, if the PS4 version shipped with an obviously superior resolution and framerate; better to “castrate” the PS4 version and release near-identical games to avoid ruffling any feathers.

This claim was later countered by a contact at a different studio. “It would be totally fine for us to make one version prettier without any political difficulties but it usually doesn’t make financial sense,” they said, “unless it’s a very simple tweak.”

The difference between cross platform launch window games will be small, and improved graphics drivers plus the power of the cloud might yet tip the balance in Xbox One’s favour. Nonetheless, at launch, PS4 will be the more capable console.

Since they've run out, there haven't been anymore available. But Xboxes appear to be in decent supply. I have a feeling there's going to be some fights for PS4's this November. I'll be waiting in line with the Taurus G2. lol The 2nd PS4 I have coming from Amazon I'm selling.

233. "hard to say"
In response to Reply # 231


  

          

It only had playable demos for Knack, Fifa and Octodad.... so in other words it wasnt the best selection of games to show off the PS4 (would have been nice to have Killzone running on the demo unit).

Too small a sample size and not the top launch titles to really say it did or didnt live up to the hype.

The graphics were impressive, but didnt jump out as "next gen" in the games i got to play.

235. "The controller is a huge improvement from the PS3"
In response to Reply # 232
Thu Oct-24-13 08:40 PM by HighVoltage

  

          

I am not a big fan of the DualShock 3, so I was extremely curious to try out the DS4. It immediately felt better when I held it. I always thought the DS3 felt too small and cramped and my hands never felt totally comfortable gripping it. The DS4 is much fatter and the handles are on a steeper angle, so it feels great this time. Your hands are more upright than on an angle, which I really prefer. Doesnt feel cheap either, its well designed.

Touchpad wasnt working for the demos, but it felt nice to touch and the entire pad clicks in as a button.

The curved triggers are an awesome addition, but i wish they had a bit more resistance.

Bottom line is I hate the DS3 and I thought this new controller was a tremendous improvement. I think the 360 controller was the best ever, so I am curious to hold the Xbox One controller (the Microsoft store had a Xbone and Controller under glass... the controller looked much bigger than the old X360 controller).

edit: forgot to answer about the interface.... it wasnt the new PS4 dash... it was just a series of tiles of the game demos designed for the demo units only.

In response to Reply # 236

and all previous Sony controllers, whereas I've felt like they stumbled onto perfection with the very first Playstation controller and have only captured the perfection of the times with each successive controller. So when I see everyone from games journalists to average joes say they love how the Dual Shock 4 feels with the added ceveat that they thought all of Sony's previous controllers were "terrible" or "uncomfortable" leaves me a little worried. Because I don't like the 360 controller at all (though a lot of that has to do with the asymmetrical sticks).


But, like I said, every form of the Playstation controller has been perfect for me so far. Benefit of the doubt.


Also, looks like it'll run natively on OS X just like the DS3. That's awesome news.
