    If this was a feature on Xbox One I'd say the same.

    Sony can continue with these gimmicks all they want. Are they ever going to get around to an important feature like suspend/resume?

    The xbox one O/S wipes the floor with the PS4s and this will never change.


    Sorry but I have to chime in here. How on earth is this a silly gimmick!? If you've actually tried it, you'll know it works. If it was on xbox I'd want sony to do it too. Don't understand the negativity these days.....seriously!!

  • We cannot let this become gaming culture

  • Dondiggler 17/10/2014

    It's bad that as a Black man I feel I can't speak out about how under represented or misrepresented "minorities" are for fear of the gg backlash. It'd just be nice to see some authenticity for once. Lost count of the amount of times character creation boils down to 1 hair cut choice and skin colour! You're shit out of luck if you're mixed race! Publishers ad well as Devs need to wake up and smell the coffee!
    Generic stereotypes of women and minorities exist.....all people want is a debate! The cretins that "claim" they're doing this type of stuff for the integrity of the industry are full of crap and their agenda only seeks to continue the current equilibrium.
    Integrity I'm the gaming press.....what theirs now a problem because a review score isn't as expected!? Reviews are just that...an opinion. The sooner we go back to just having a write up and no score the better!

    Oh yeah the sense of entitlement from some so called gamers is beyond depressing now!
    Rant over! ;)

    Seriously... People need to lay off them a bit. Had a bit of a glimpse of online over the weekend and what they're trying to do is ambitious. Should all be sorted in the coming weeks. Ideally this wouldn't have happened but from what I've heard there are 3 server os behind the dynamic menu we see and it looks like this I causing the issues. As for the offline game I'm enjoying it.... Just finished work and it's all I've been thinking about getting home and playing. Ideally Eurogamer should re review this once it's all sorted. Reply -12

  • Project Cars shooting for 1080p 60fps on both Xbox One and PS4

    @kangarootoo

    So when they say they are aiming for 108060, I believe they are simply letting us know their honest development strategy. Some other devs might waffle about their goals, which later turn out to be baseless... but I don't think that is the case here.
    Based on what?

    These are professionals at their job expecting customers to pay for their product. So why can't they say the game will be unequivocally 1080p/60 and then make sure it is by reducing every other aspect of fidelity to make sure?

    I'm sick of hearing what amounts to hype from developers. If only 10% of the potential buyers end up preordering based on this, that's 10% more sales than they'd originally have, with zero guarantee that 1080p/60 will be hit.

    Enough is enough.


    Wow.....Touchy!!?? All the dev said was "we're trying".... In response to being asked. Would you rather they lied, just to give you their unequivocal assurance?
    I'd much rather they be honest and wait and see what they come up with, then stump up the cash if needed. Anyone who read that and thought "yep that's all I need, pre order confirmed" was already gonna get the game. I don't think there's anything wrong in the dev stating their goals and shouldn't be chastised for it.

    Not forgetting the whole 'always online' / 'won't play secondhand games' debacle. Or charging to play online games. etc. etc. Or the RRoD. Or the overpriced PoS that is Surface. Or Zune.

    Down by 100quid in one year suggests that 'customer value' was not originally on M$ mind. In fact, if I'm not very much mistaken, M$ have tried to screw as much money out of people as possible on every single occasion, if you'll let them.

    I'm glad, finally, they are being forced into a price point that fits with the quality of their products. Low.


    This.... For me Microsoft seriously screwed themselves this gen. Cast your mind back 18 months and I remember the fear microsoft struck through the industry before the console announcements came through. Always online 24hr check in etc they basically said buy our stuff but we'll treat you like a criminal!! I'm sorry but my momma didn't raise no fool! They may have done a 180 but if anyone thinks that's down to the consumer then they're mistaken. The XBone would have bombed big time. All credit to them for making changes.... They needed to survive, but don't slap me in me face, cuss me out and then say it was a joke!

    Ground Zeros was an absurdly short and highly mediocre Splinter Cell clone with last gen graphics at best. I hope the full game will be better, but it's still cross gen, Kojima is still a misogynist who belongs in the 1960s, and the game looks depressingly stale and lacking that usual Metal Gear flair.

All 3 or 4 if you count FH2 are different games and are tooled accordingly. Driveclub, The Crew and FH2 aren't simulation games so don't "have" to be 60FPS if they are bonus!!

    It's very disappointing this game cannot even go above 30 FPS on the PS4 as many times it looks almost like a PS2 game. Many of the textures are also very poor. For the developers and Digital Foundry to hold out locked 30 FPS as if it's some sort of accomplishment on this game is quite sad. The game should be 60 FPS with absolute ease given the subpar visuals.

    @antmusic97 Everyone knows that Sony has a 6 month release schedule on phones, hence the incremental updates, it doesn't really devalue the old phones anymore than they will already drop, it is Sonys only choice really to remain current when you are competing with the might of Samsung, the Z3 will be replace in 6 months also.

    With many people stuck in two year contracts it rarely matters and lets face it if you phone was good enough 6 months ago, it hasn't suddenly got shit, it will still be good, there is just something slightly better, there will always be something better just around the corner, its a mugs game if you want to keep up with it.

    Yeah I have to agree. Sending this from my original Xperia Z and it works perfectly from launch about 18 months ago..... Google services issues apart it's perfect. As for the speed of updates o blame Samsung and Apple! Sony have had to change their update cycle to stay relevant with those two behemoths milking the market. Still if you're on a contract it doesn't really matter just get the best phone available and it'll see you through.

    I love how any article that goes against whatever gamer outrage is currently in vogue is always deemed 'click bait'.

    I'm not particularly a fan of Depression Quest, but it's part of an exciting wider trend of games branching out into uncharted territory, and developers like Zoe are important voices in that. Unfortunately, traditional "gamers" are a volatile bunch when it comes to developers, especially if said developer is a woman (and doubly so if identified as a feminist) - and here we have an interesting game swamped by an absurd overreaction to some unsubstantiated claims about this woman's private life.

    To my eyes, gaming is a very democratic hobby. If a game is shit, generally it will fail long term.

    If anyone does not like Destiny Beta, don't buy it. There are loads of great games inbound in the next two or three months.

    I will be buying it and even persuaded my non shooter fan mate to play the Beta (he hates Halo with a passion). First thing he mentioned was how great the shooting controls are. Then the superb sound then how easy it was to hook up ad hoc or custom fireteam. The last thing was "I want to see the other areas" Says it all really.


    It really does say it all! The amount of people moaning about how dull it is because it's similar to something else? Is it fun to play?? Well bloody well yes it is, but to write it off just because it's similar to something that came before it seems silly to me especially when these nay sayers never have a game pitch of their own. Gaming supposed to be fun isn't it? Nowadays some comment sections are treated a place just to have a "hipster moan".

    I can't believe people are trying to criticise the ps4 line up for not having enough exclusives.. It's MICROSOFT that needs exclusives, not sony. If you have the stronger console and all of the games look around 50% better and run around 50% better on your machine then you win and anything third party can be considered as an essential purchase on that machine.

    If on the other hand you have an underpowered piece of junk that you try to advertise by lying and lying and lying and lying to your customers about magic clouds and the like.. then yes, you need exclusives, you need to be able to hold people games hostage and say to the consumer, if you don't give us money then you don't get to play, oh let's say, titanfall.

    Well you know what? Fuck that. I'll play Diablo 3, Destiny, Alien: Isolation, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Evolve, The Evil Within, Assassin's Creed: Unity, Call of Duty, The Crew, Far Cry 4, The Witcher 3, Batman: Arkham Knight, Star Wars: Battlefront, Rainbow Six: Siege, Lords of the Fallen, Deep Down, The Witness, Metro Redux, The Division, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, Dying Light, Mad Max and Grand Theft Auto 5 on the more powerful machine and I'll have faith that sony will deliver some neat exclusive in the future.

    And if you really need exclusives so that you can really stomp on people about how great your choice in console is then just wait. Sony have an excellent track record in exclusives. The differance is that they like to actually make good games and that takes time. While microsoft just churn out yet another halo game.. (Halo? HALO??? MY TIME MACHINE WORKS!!!!!)

    BOOM!!!!! Or the writers who aren't white!? Can we all just agree that things ARE moving in the right direction (I can actually select my correct skin colour in most games now whoop whoop).

    It might be nice to have one of these articles written from a female viewpoint. I'm all for equality but I personally feel like cringing when the point of the article is missed so badly.
    I feel I may get on my soapbox and write about the lack of "believable" Afro Caribbean characters that have more than a 2 syllable name like "DJ" or "Turbo".

    Look the fact is that if the role isn't written correctly it doesn't work anyway and that is a criticism that could be levelled all across the industry whether the protagonist is black, white, purple, yellow, male, female, gay, straight or transgender.

    Until the writing at the core of the experience improves to make more believable experiences, then this argument will keep cropping up. It's far to easy to jump to conclusions and say "oh it's because their sexist or racist".......no it's because generally the writing is crap!!!
