Witcher 3 on PC for sure.  Just a bit better than the latest consoles?  Oh, I don't think that will be true at all.  (Zloth starts recharging the 3D Vision glasses)

MS actually gave the best possible response when asked about NG. Trying to recreate the culture of another studio would be a terrible idea and result in some unoriginal, shallow, poor quality games

Xboxone beter: design, joystick,online(xboxlive),dashboard, console name, more people to play multiaplayer games,very good exclusives, bether & cooler people behind!

Ps4 secondary console (like Ps3 was) only for exclusive titles!


And devs oriented games first on lower spec. hardware, remeber the 360 lower & Ps3 with tera, mega, gadza flops points?

microsoft and their xbone are getting their salads tossed by Sony lol. They should have focused more on things that matter than things that dont . Arrogance and over reaching its the downfall of all the greats.SNk did it, Sega did it, nintendo just did it, and now its Xbox's turn it semms.

I was going to buy Witcher 3 on Steam with the other two for continuity but looking at the gameplay again and then down at my laptop and back to the footage, it is likely the console version will look better than what my laptop can do. 

Witcher 2 was JUST able to run with all but a select few settings on maximum. We'll have to see. 

One of the reasons I don't normally go for PC. Doesn't matter what you have or what you do, there will always be a game come out sooner or later that can't be played as it was designed to be played because your computer is suddenly out of date.

So Microsoft and Machinima don't see the big problem with these contracts because they do these deals all the time and this is the only time they've been caught? Ok........................


And Microsoft has first party developers?

Poor Microsoft, with the Xbox One losing ground I am sure they are trying to steal away Naughty Dog as a developer.

Just casting my vote for "A lot of companies are doing the pay-for-coverage" thing.  If one big megacorp has figured it out there is no way that the other megacorps haven't figured it out.  They all pass executives around like my preschoolers pass germs, and they love to copy each other's practices at every possible occasion.


Oh, and The Witcher 3 looks awesome.  :)

Under the pic it says "rumor."  After being in contact with their "verified sources" it's more like 35 and 55 fps on average and we'll have to wait a week for full-on confirmation.

@Dream-on-stereo The brainwashing is strong on this one:


- Design: big. heavy, ugly, looking like a VCR. Compared to a slim and compact PS4 with alien technology

- Gamepad: the D-pad still sucks. The DS4 has been universally praised

- Dashboard: just a recipient for ads and more ads

- Console name: XBONE says it all!

- How there can be more people online if it sells much less and it doesn't have cross-play is just a mystery

- No exclusives worth mention apart, maybe, from a half finished racing game full of micro-transactions

- Xbots are not people. :p

@Dream-on-stereo  How are there more people to play MP games with when PS4 has sold more units then XBone? Please, by all means explain.

@Dream-on-stereo  Better and cooler people behind? What are you? 12? Take that "cool kids" argument back to the playground.


For starters, the 360 and PS3 for the most part appeal to very different gamers. Exclusives typically decide which way a gamer will lean and the exclusives on each system tend to feed a specific crowd. The 360 definitely leans more towards the FPS fan, whereas the PS3 tends to be more... artsy would probably be the best way to put it, not that games created for the 360 aren't without their artistic merits. It almost feels like the difference between seeing a great summer blockbuster and a damn good indie flick.


As for your last statement, if I understand it correctly since it's so ridiculously typed that it almost screams intentional feedbackula fodder, devs didn't favor the lower specs on the 360. They favored the architecture. It was easier, and therefore cheaper, for them to create games and use the resources of the 360 compared to the PS3. Was the architecture a mistake for Sony? Meh. Yes and no. We got some tremendous exclusives out of it and any risks in technology typically lead to better ideas in the future but yeah, a lot of the time multiplatform releases were of a poorer quality or just outright buggy on the PS3. That's not the case this generation though. The PS4 is more powerful AND easier to develop on. The two consoles are so alike this time around though that outside of resolution I doubt you'll spot much difference in multiplatform games.

@Dream-on-stereo errr, you do know you only get the cash for saying nice things about the Xbone if its in a youtube vid. Nice try though.

@amar1234 I feel like xbox one sales say other wise. ya ps4 is doing great, and that's awesome for ps4, while xbox one is going great, just not as great as ps4 but gunna have to say xbox wont be dying out like sega, or Nintendo any time soon. not until another console comes along from a different company, the whole world wont buy a PS4, just like the whole world wont buy a XBO. one may do better than the other but both will exist because there isn't enough competition for one of them to drop out.

Easy answer; Not every PS buyer was/is MP player, right ?!? 

360 was mainstream console, Xbox live!?

You could hear every small kid who's just stack his head out of moms vagie knew Play Station. 

Sony sold consoles to creatures of habit who are too afraid to explore the world and form their own opinions, judgements.

Every parent buy'd to a child PS cause only known gameing console to them.


I think more kids own PS then Xbox

i bet you dont own Xbox, i have every consol for exclusives etc.


Cheers!

@mcmflyguy @amar1234 None of the big three will die this generation. The PS4 and XB1 will wind up relatively even in sales numbers in the end and Nintendo has enough in the bank to ride out one weak console while their software and handheld offerings help minimize their losses. Those claiming otherwise are either being extremely reactionary or are just flaming fanboys who'd rather piss on someone else's plate than enjoy playing what they just spent their money on.

@mcmflyguy @horizonwriter @Dream-on-stereo lol "kinda feel like tony stark"  There's a quote that MS should have used to promote it. You won't find too many gamers denying that they'd love to feel like Stark for just a few seconds in their entire lives.

@horizonwriter  @Dream-on-stereo I love the XBO so far, not saying its perfect but the Kinect voice commands are awesome. Interface can definitely use some work. Although I think there is a patch coming out that will make it better. To get to my friends list to see who actually on and doing what at this moment in time I have to go to my friends section then my friends list. kinda annoying, I have to do that if I want to select their name and join their party too so its a lot of button pushing or saying friends, friends, person #, join party, sometimes more than once if there is a lot of noise going on. Its easy to see and find your friends videos when they record them. switching too and from TV watching is seamless, and while watching tv, if your feelin extra lazy and don't want to move you can say xbox watch espn and it will go to that channel or whatever other network you say. haven't binged anything yet with it, no real need when I have an ipad next to me. I only got it for the games that will come out eventually. and wont lie you kinda feel like tony stark talking to your xbox and it does what you say.

@mcmflyguy @horizonwriter @Dream-on-stereo I've had a chance to spend some time with the PS4. Love the new layout and speed of the console. I haven't had a chance to get my hands on an XB1 though. How do you feel about the interface and the console so far?
