GS News Top 5 - Xbox One's SkyDrive, Diablo III on PS4 detailed + PS4 IS GO!!
This week Shuhei Yoshida expressed disappointment in PS4 software success, Watch Dogs is going along slow and steady, Diablo III on the PS4 is detailed, Microsoft explains SkyDrive on Xbox One, and can 1080p resolution really make you a better gamer?
More time for watch dogs is good as long as they don't push it back again. I think gamers can tolerate one release change but anything more than that and you will lose public interest.
I'm not excited about watchdogs. It looks like one of those boring naughty dog ps3 adventure games I've never cared for.
I'm a PC gamer so I can't say I know how console gamers who picked their platform based on launch releases feel, but personally I'm okay with the long delay.
Would you guys prefer they rushed it like Bioware did Mass Effect 3? Look how that turned out...
So far, I haven't seen anything that would convince me to run out and buy either console. Maybe in a year or so, if and when there are some quality games, but for now I'm staying with my PC/PS3. Also, I'm sick of all the hype surrounding games that end up delayed for a year or more... don't tell me about it until it's within a month or two of release.
2560 x 1440 all the way baby!
I hate to say it but I think "Next gen" is not a term we can use this time around. These consoles should be pumping out 1080p at least @ 60fps with "PC Maxed" equivalent graphics.
Shame on you Sony
Shame on you Microsoft
Nintendo........go back to bed.
I think the 1080p PR BS from sony is all about the fact that the XB-1 does not have it and upscales its 720. in the end 1080p can only be enjoyed with the proper TV, not all have this. Most gamers I know have their console to a Bing Lee 23"-28" sweet deal TV, which might cry when it gets 1080p presented.
In the end we all want good games, both systems will offer that.
I like to play RPG's on PC, but I will be buying Diablo III used on PS3 because I cannot support Blizzard for making a game that requires a constant connection only on PC. If a small company like CDPR can make DRM games and do very well thne a huge company like Blizzard has no excuse for always online DRM.
amazing how many idiots no so little about resolutions all they have been is sucked in by ps4 telling them they will get this and that when they will not. these cards there never capable of proper stable 1080p on most games and there are multiple factors to getting.
i really can't see everyone having a 50 inch in there bedroom. and very little games will be native that is already clear. so if people are buying because of resolution they will be getting ripped of like on broadcasted tv 1080p does not exist they will be getting 720p 1080i max. if a game is 900p it is 720p fact if its stretched to 1080p that is not 1080p.
- I don't care if a game runs at 720 of 1080 or 4000 or 1,000,000 resolution. I just don't care. The only thing that matters as far as resolution is concerned is how it affects framerate - and even then I'm not talking about higher framerates, I'm talking about STABLE framerates.
- Diablo is a series that I would only ever play on PC. Despite the developers making design decisions to make Diablo 3 better suited for console (watering down the game essentially) - the overall gameplay is still best suited for a mouse/keyboard.
- I don't mind Watch Dogs being delayed. I'd rather they take the time to finish the game properly, rather than releasing it half-baked and in need or constant patch updates and DLC to milk the content that was cut from the game. Having said that - if Ubisoft are going to turn Watch Dogs into the cash cow to replace AssCreed, then I won't be playing anything more than this first one. Actually, that begs the question, are they delaying this game so that they get an extra year to develop the sequel (that will innevitably be released the year after). This is Ubisoft we are talking about - it wouldn't surprise me.
- Anyway, I wasn't planning to buy a next-gen console this year anyway. There simply aren't enough games out for it and I'm a bit short with Xmas coming up. I don't like any of the release line-up - all the games I want aren't out until at least March (inFAMOUS), or later (Watch Dogs, MGS). In the meantime I'll need to get my PS3 fix/replaced and get myself a copy of GTAV. Or if it gets announced on PS4 then I might just wait.
Got a ps4 with the thought of playing cod, bf4, and black flag for the first couple months, wait for drive club, watch dogs, uncharted, metal gear, infamous second son,
Final Fantasy XV, the order 1886, kingdom hearts 3,thief, dying light,destiny, and somewhere along the wait get titanfall for pc....guess I'll have something to do till the "better" titles come out.
I care about 1080p.
Saw the comparison live between PS3 & PS4 for COD: Ghost; nope not going to back to 720p...ever.
Negatively impacting the PS4? I doubt it, I wasn't planning on buying my console (whichever that turns out to be) until next summer, now I'm more than glad I didn't buy on launch.
1080p makes about 10x bigger difference than 60fps, but personally, no I honestly don't care about either.
I'd like to see you link to the actual stories in these vids - news is harder to access on the new site.
1080p is fantastic on the PS4. Killzone and BF4 look pretty stellar on my tv and having the big screen immerses you in a way a PC monitor never could (and I have had excellent PC gaming rigs too).
On 55" screen, its not a small matter. It IS better with 1080p. That cannot be denied.
Watch dogs was one of the games i was waiting for, so i was almost convinced to wait 'til spring, but then i saw a little closer on Killzone... might be worth getting early on... :)
I care about 1080p just like everyone else does. which is why nobody goes out of their way to get a 720p TV, they all go for 1080. even when there was an equal amount of them in stores, and now they have more or less gone away.
because we do care. if we didn't, then there would still be an equal amount of 720p TVs to 1080p TV on the market.
don't care about 480p, 720p, 1080p or even 4K...if the game is shit it will still be shit in whatever p or K its in. That said, prefer 720p @ 60fps detail, then 1080p @ 30fps with same detail, framerate more important. Still game at 1280x1024 on PC to get the fastest frame rate as possible. Watch Dogs delay means even less game for Wii U ..so boo!...:P
60FPS and 1080P DO make a difference, just go and look back at some past months GS NEWS video and compare to the new almighty fluid and detailed 1080P/60FPS Jess and tell me you don't see a difference?
Its really easy to be a graphics snob these days with 4k TVs and super graphics cards. Even myself. I took my copies of Parasite Eve and MGS1 and ran them with an emulator just to see how much they improve on a PC.
The thing is that the graphics don't matter as much if the game is fun. The ps4 launch has already proven this. A bunch of mediocre 1080p games. Meanwhile I'm playing Gamecube games in progressive scan 480p and having the time of my life.
@acanofcoke The higher resolution, the more expensive it will be to make games with textures that hold up. Personally I'm okay keeping that graphics ceiling in place. Game companies are already eating themselves trying to make the shiniest games possible, which has no effect on the quality of a game.
@toddx77 How about not buying this piece of shit at all.
@Notsosavage Well aren't you the picky one.
@joshzen You are an idiot. Diablo belongs on PC. Diablo 3, more particularly, belongs in the bin and forgotten. It's noobs like you that buy this rubbish on that shitty consol, which give it meaningless mainstream success, denying the franchise a real chance of redeeming itself.
@Jenkar Go for the Dell U2713HM man... 1440p in all its glory, Dell quality assurance too.
@gamist question is, will your monitor/TV at home make a difference? and in a few months/years, 4K pc gamers appear...
only if you stick at the screen then you would see the difference between 720p and 1080p.
I ask you, for a massive map game, would you rather have 480p@60FPS or 1080p with 6FPS?
@jonny_dutch 10x bigger difference on a massive screen. Otherwise it is minimal at best. On my 20" in my bedroom, I find it difficult to see the difference between 1080p and standard definition DVDs.
1080p is the definition of perfect on such a small screen, but DVD is more than fine.
@jonny_dutch I agree what I do is click the "News" link at the top of the screen and then run back through the article tabs until I see one I recognise.
If you keep up with the news daily it works nicely. If not it might take a while to find the last one you saw.
I personally find it harder to watch the different shows. Before it was obvious when a new show was out, now unless you go looking for the show it isn't that obvious.
@the_endrunner Are you aware that you can actually use that same big tv as a PC monitor? Your comment about PC monitors applies to small TVs as well.
@x2rufff4u So you really are saying that on every video. That's a bit creepy
@Diegoctba You going to be able to afford one though considering the prices in Brazil? :(
I'm sure insulting someone because of their preference is a perfect way to get your point across.
Yes, but you still have to juggle around a keyboard and a mouse on your lap while chillin' on the couch, and lets face it, controllers destroy performance on P.C.'s which is why so few use them, so don't even go there. Not to mention have a nice cold beer next to your keyboard while playing probably isn't a good idea.
Maybe x2rufff4u is just reaffirming that this news series is educational. :) Guys can learn something from her, too?
@blu_craze So what? You can still use a big tv as a monitor, and that monitor does not need to be on your face. And you can put a nice cold beer wherever you want, does not need to be right besides the keyboard. When you play games on a console, do you have the beer right next to your hand?
Controllers destroy perfomance on a PC? You mean in multiplayer FPS? Because those are not the only games in existence.
I'm discussing that the op implied that having a big tv to play games is a console exclusivity. Is not.
