xbox gold is a joke they only put games that are free that aren't selling or are several months or yrs old--what a koke--



was not impressed with titanfall--would it being in better resolution made a difference--I doubt it--


   my xbox one gets a lot of on time---I have my satellitehooked up through it so it needs to be on so I can watch teen wolf and vampire diaries


    biggest bluray media disc sounds cool just as long as it works on ym bluray burner I have now and not have to buy a newer one--would love to store all my music videos and  photos on a couple of them be sweet--

Jess, a girl, just asked me what my Gamerscore was.  I always knew this would happen.

Don't call these consoles next Gen any more. Call them this Gen. Next Gen would be 4K Consoles in the making with the 300GB Disk. If it is not 1080P I would have to call it Last Gen. But play what you want to play. Life on Earth is short so enjoy whatever games you are playing on whatever console you bought them on and remember to give God the Glory for all of the things He has done and for Blessing the people with the creative minds to make it all happen!

1. Titalfall looks great at 792P, resolutions is not the only factor that leads to a great look game, art style and texture matter a lot.


2. Titanfall is all multiplayer and multiplayer games typically run at lower resolutions.


3. Titanfall resolution 1408 x 792 = 1,115,136 pixels; Killzone:Shadow Fall (multiplayer) resolution 960 x 1080 = 1,036,800 pixels. Comparing apples to apples, Titanfall is actually running at a higher native resolution than Killzone under the same conditions. To be fair to Killzone, they do upscale to 1080P after. The lower resolution was a sacrifice made to keep the frame rate high with 60fps being the goal. Consequently, they were unable to lock in at 60fps but the game runs at 50+ most of the time. MS and other developers have however caught a lot of flack for doing the same thing in other games and almost no one mentions it. My point is, both games look great and play smoothly so the resolution isn't a big deal at all.

Jess i have to say even when you bring me bad news you put a smile on my face while you do it. you're so charismatic that you make bad news easier to stomach. i think the whole world could use a little jess mcdonell in there lives. ill be letting NBC know that you need a spot on the Today Show to reach a bigger audience.

Since everything on xbox is behind a paywall except single local play. People on xbox will keep their gold membership anyways.  So essentially they are the same.  I like what PS+ offers for Indie developers.  I think it's a better environment for devs.

why would I stop paying for playstation plus?

best buy and gamestop are:  (wait for it….) Xbone Yards!!  haha they are plucking loaded to the gills with Xbox Ones but you can't get a PS4 to save your life.  i've stopped by over 100 times looking for a PS4 but nothing.  and i don't know of a single person that is looking to buy one….AT ALL

Looking forward to getting home this evening and playing on my PC with it's two, three year old 6970 graphics cards at 5760X1080.

At least you don't have to deal with EA's Origin as you enjoy 720p with your shinny new 'next gen' XBones.

richardfitzinya
richardfitzinya

uhm is there an XBone game that DOES run at 1080P???  i've not heard of one yet….not a triple A shooter that is.  what a piece of chit piece of kit.  why anybody would buy one over a PS4 is soooooo beyond me.  perhaps thats why i can't get a PS4 but every store is loaded to the rim with Bones…..perhaps you could call them "XBone Yards" ehhh?

Personally don't care about TF resolution since I still have a 720P TV.

It would be nice if XBOX gold incorporate some of those old free games on the new console too.  I hope this is something they consider for the future because when the 360 is no longer supported in a few years are they just going to forget about those free games?  Shame on them if they do.

I prefer the titles on PS+ but wish you didn't need a membership to play them in the future.

Seems both Microsoft and Sony can learn something from each other.

Dark Souls II comes out on Friday! I'm sick of Titanfall, I have no intentions of buying it on any platform, and resolution still doesn't matter. In fact I've been more drawn to buy Need for Speed Rivals on 360 these past weeks than Titanfall.

I'll play Titanfall when it goes on sale. I'm not paying that BS $10 console premium for a PC game. Especially one that is so light on content and multiplayer only.

I definitely get more value out of ps+, it almost makes me feel like I'm ripping Sony off spread across three platforms. It's nice Microsoft added gwg, but every one gets gold for solid online performance, I could care less about games I could buy for $5.

PS+ games of the month happened long ago, Games for Gold just happened.

Not the other way around

Beautiful shirt with a beautiful design Jess.


Blu ray discs up to 1 TB or more.  Great for businesses.

I read about holographic DVDs that were in development a few years ago that also had storage capacities > 1TB.


I don't care about Titanfall, but it looks just fine the way it is.

What are people complaining about? 

If they increased the resolution, you would hardly notice it.

They should just tell people that resolution is better and I'm sure the Placebo effect would work on most of the people who nit-pick at that stuff.


Playstation Plus has been offering much better games lately than the shovel ware they were offering month ago.

I downloaded a a couple but I haven't played 'em yet because I have too many games already.  They just add to the clutter.


It's sad when Xbox Live or PSN offer games that you already own.


Thank you Jess.  It's always a joy to enjoy your company for a few minutes a day here on GS News.

PS Plus is clearly better than Gold, it's a no brainer.

It happened at midnight, well that's what I heard anyway.

Playstation plus is way better then Gold (for free games). the games on gold are nothing less then a joke. Playstation Plus has given me well over half a dozen beauties. Some of them I regret not buying when they were released. That feeling did not hit me on Xbox Gold.

@GameYakuza I agree with you-- why cancel something that each months a lot of goodies comes onto the service that totally makes the ps plus a needed thing for playstation  owners

@richardfitzinya  They are in stock where i live at 2 of the 2 places that we have in town, that excludes Wal Mard and Kmart.. I picked one up at launch and take my word your not missing much. There will be some must have games for this system for sure but not right meow.

@richardfitzinya So sad.  You do know that the PS4 has no good exclusive titles available for it?  I am not a Xbox or PS fanboy, but based on the games right now you are just a raging fanboy and will probably talk about 1080P, which was a smart sales gimmick for people who don't know better.  Personally not interested in Second son, since I find that game style boring.  But I will be waiting for a good exclusive that grabs my attention like Oddworld or Planetside for PS4, but as of right now it is lacking. 

tzolynski

@richardfitzinya  Yes they do have a few at 1080 Forza and NBA2k. Im not sure but FIFA might be also, but the truth is the best looking game is RYSE and its at 900p so...... 

golden1elite
golden1elite

@richardfitzinya GAMES...  I am getting both systems, but I had to make a choice on which system has the better exclusives right now.  Lets face it, the PS4 does not have great exclusives, but that will change, and I will be picking up a PS4 as soon as the game library supports it.  I am a gamer through and through and do not hold any allegiance to the fanboy console war.

@XCyberForceX  You do realize that even with your 720p TV, the game would look better if it had a higher resolution right?

Nevermind, Just read the article from Phil Spencer and free games will be coming to the new console soon.

For ps+ games you just need to add them to your download list and then cancel them. They will remain available on your download list to enjoy at your leisure as long as you have your membership.

@aci808  When it comes to the games yes, but for  on-line play, there is no comparison.  XBox Live Rules.


It took me three hours to watch a two hour movie I rented from the Playstation Store at midnight with a 23 Mbps download speed (that's not true of other video services).

That's symbolic of the on-line performance you get from PSN.

@Lawrencevanrijn  The Playstaion Plus games are only rentals.  You only get to keep them if you remain a Playstation Plus  subscriber.

Actually i think they both suck!!!! Most of these games i've played before or not interested in.... I'm only speaking for myself & not everyone else....ijs

@golden1elite @richardfitzinya i liked resogun from what i read will be new dlc soon, infamous isnt far. i really dont care when / how many exclusives ps4 brings, but nor does xbox 1 have that many either, yet the console has been out 4 months now. most playstation fans are happy with exclusives on teh ps3, im sure myself upon others looking for alot of ps3 games this year and a few ps4. im not a fanboy either but xbox fans making me lol when they act like 1 good game comes out and makes it look like they got dumped on its like really lol? i just wish they would give super motherload for free on game of the month, hell id rather have a free game a month than a game someone gloats about like its a big thing pfft

joalopes
joalopes

@golden1elite @richardfitzinya  Right there with you. I have a PC, Xbox One and PS4. I wouldn't recommend anyone to go nuts and buy all gaming devices, but that's the price to pay if you want to play all the exclusive content. Still PC is the platform that offers the best bang for the buck. 

canuckbiker

Strange. I have live streamed video content on my ps3 with about 500kb/s.

canuckbiker
canuckbiker

Yeah, that's why they can afford to give away good games. Do you bitch about not being able to stream netflicks when you don't pay your membership?

SaintsRowLA
SaintsRowLA

@canuckbiker  Yes, but I was talking about a video directly from the Playstation Store, not Netflix or Amazon.


Netflix and Amazon stream perfectly through the PS3, but 1080p movies directly from the Playstation Store are a different story.


I stream 'The Hurt Locker' about the time when they started offering streaming movies from the Playstation Store.  


In the past if you rented or bought a video from the Playstation Store, it was mandatory thay you download it, but you would have to wait 5 hours or so for it to download, unlike Xbox Live. 


It's a well known fact that the PSN on-line performance doesn't hold a candle to Xbox Live.

SaintsRowLA

@canuckbiker  

Have you ever seen me post a bitch?  I don't bitch.  I'm not a PS3 fanboy.


I was just pointing out to you.


I'm both and Xbox Live and PS+ subscriber.

@canuckbiker  I would if LoveFilm DID let me do that. That is what Microsoft are to Sony.

I don't maintain a membership package unless I am playing an online game heavily. Like my membership runs out in April for Xbox Gold. I won't be renewing it because there are no games I want to play online. Except Dark Souls II but normally the constant intrusion of players tends to get intense enough that I pull the Ethernet cable out of my Xbox, so not really a problem.

On Xbox that isn't a problem I can still play the games with gold games I already downloaded. On PS+ I'd have to fork out for a membership just to have access to them.
