Title implies it's xbox one exclusive or something. Instead it's being confirmed along with every other system right?

Why title it like that.

Visuals looks good. BUT, we expect MORE from next gen at this point.

This should include the old as hell FMV game with the mouse hole video screen.

The last few Sherlock Holmes games didn't have great graphics, they look like cleaned up Xbox graphics so these are a step up.

I would totally believe those are 360's screenshots. 


So, for the next 8 years we are stuck with this level of graphics???

Ok, this headline is complete BS

As for the game...  I love Sherlock Holmes, but this game looks like early last gen, doesn't it?

Wow, I just go Makuch'd bad.  He knew the headline would sound like this was an X1 exclusive.

As for the game itself, I'm willing to bet someone will want to shoehorn MP into this game.

Gotta love Sherlock Holmes. His character even in the books was so likable.

The screenshots look incredible. I hope this turns out to be a great game. I'm always thrilled for experiences that don't look like CoD Advanced Warfare. ;)

This has great potential. I'd love to see this be like LA Noire, but set in early 1900s London.

I hope that they add console specific features for this gen. Of course better visuals would be great on X1 & PS4, but adding Kinect, gamepad or motion control support as well as upping the graphics would be very appealing.

@Armyboy5 Its what journalists do. Take things out of context, destroy people lives, start fanboy wars lol.

@berserker66666 Funniest thing I've read since coming back here, and I hate fanboy posts. This may be a war on opinion but both sides can at least laugh right!

@berserker66666  That was good. It is like a minefield in the comments section. Your not expecting it and then BOOOOOM!!!!

And hopefully he can find who's killing Sony's profits.

@berserker66666 I dunno pal, when I look at the PS4 exclusive lineup I don't exactly see any of that 1080p 60fps honey that everyone has been going on about.

@berserker66666  - Maybe he can find the reason for 1080p games in the Pony PS4, I don't know why 1080p is so important to run indie games...

@berserker66666 well, it took 5 years for the mystery of the PS3's inability to match a weaker 360 to be solved, but apparently Sony fans didn't care about that.

@cvantu @berserker66666  The Sony fans you guys refer to are former Xbox 360 owners that bailed on Microsoft and bought PS4's because it is a superior gaming console. Solve that mystery!

Pshhhhh. Sherlock doesn't have the stupidity to even think that anyway, the man's a detective!

@wookiegr  Blah blah blah? Really, that's your argument? Great, the truth is to heavy to carry on? Your PS4 is so dusty and full of indies that you come here to spoil the news? Nice, a tipical fat pony that spend all day here. Hey tell me, if PS4 is so perfect why aren't you playing it right now?

@wookiegr  accept the fate of more and better AAA games on x1? Fine..I'll accept that :)

@cherublvl99  blah blah blah blah blah


I don't believe I mentioned 1080p once or asked for lengthy sermon. Volunteering such info as you have defines an Xbot Zealot. Just chill out and accept your fate.

@wookiegr @cherublvl99 @cvantu @berserker66666  - Good, 99.9% of those games I can run in my $600 PC with better graphics than PS4, and of course running in your glorified 1080p, there's more, 30% of those games are indies wich runs in an oldschool PC.


You know why PS3 was espectacular? Wasn't by the hardware, wasn't by PS Move and Apps, was by the exclusives, that's what I want to see in PS4, that's what will make me buy this console, Infamous SS is nice, but doesn't worth to buy the console, Xbox One will have till the end of this year those exclusives:


- Sunset Overdrive;

- Forza 5;

- Ryse;

- DR3;

- Quantum Break;

- Halo 5;

- Fable Legends (to all appearances);


Those are the Xbox One exclusives only, there's more with the Microsoft exclusives like Titanfall, Project Sparks, PvsZ, Max - TCB...


So then I ask you, why do you praise the 1080p in a console that will have till the end of this year 3 great exclusives (I'll not consider the Knack, cause wtf is that 54 out 100?) and thousands of millions Indies?
