This is going to outsell the original Wii I reckon.
Power in and of itself is not a goal. The question is, what that power makes possible.
£249 and we are most definitely talking. £199 and all hell will break loose.
It plays nothing like Battlefront.
Not one bit. From the map design to the movement, gunplay and ttk. Nothing.
Last year's Star Wars: Battlefront - itself weighed down by comparisons with Battlefield - seems to have had some impact here, not only in the elite classes littered around multiplayer maps that feel like analogues for Battlefront's Hero pick-ups, but also in the cotton wool that's been wrapped around the aerial combat. Battlefield's planes have always been a little unwieldy, though the numbness in the controls here feels like it's step too far in the other direction.
I'd buy Rez but £25 is taking the mick and while I'm here £50 for eve Valkyrie (£55 on psn!), battlezone and rigs and £30 for a reheat of driveclub is absolute robbery.
Ι still don't understand why they opted for procedural generation. It's great for diversity...
It is very obvious what you were insinuating, fella. Don't play the poor, innocent victim.
What? So are you saying that console owners are the gaming equivalent of, for example, Forest Gump?
... "Cunt is, as cunt does".
Definitions - adjective - informal very easy to use or understand; simplistic
The use of Noddy as a fool is probably quite rare, at least in any bits of England I've lived in. More common is Noddy as simple or easy - eg. "a Noddy question on an exam"
So refreshing to see that PC snobbery is very much alive and kicking.
The attempt to sell a mid-gen console refresh is therefore based on the idea of the user owning or upgrading to a 4K screen - something that's very hard to market to users who don't own the technology. On top of that, it really helps if you own the right 4K display, principally one that supports high dynamic range. Oh, and do make sure that it's the right HDR screen. Many otherwise excellent screens accept the input, then scale it back to SDR - rather like the Samsung KU6400 we reviewed yesterday. Others support HDR, but aren't particularly bright, meaning you need to play in a darkened room to get the best effect. Meanwhile, some of the best and the brightest HDR screens - such as the Samsung KS8000 series - don't support low latency game modes when working with HDR content, adding over 100ms to lag. It's a minefield.
Patronising drivel again plus trolling again equals 'seriousy fuck off to another thread'.

How do you buy memory wth good timings and overclock stability? How do you buy a PSU with a good, consistent 12 volt rail? How do you buy a monitor with low response time, no blurring/ghosting and good colour reproduction/ no colour bleed?
You go onto the Internet and read. No different when buying a tv screen. Buying a 4K HDR tv is not a Herculean task.
I don't know, @George. It sounds like you're scrabbling for an excuse to do your, "Consoles LOL" schtick, to me.
I have no insecurities
I just prefer console
But to insinuate that console gaming has become an inconvenience is just flat out wrong.
Just a problem with cunts like GR who think that because they own a PC they are better.

Oh look at that I can just play a game when I want...
All this stuff seems rather pointless. You get what you pay for. All the graphic whores can go buy a PC
that's all there is to it, and that's why I like consoles, I don't have to check the specs in order to play it.
The PC version impresses even more due in part to the poor track record of UWP ports this year. Gears of War 4 on the PC runs like a dream on a wide variety of platforms and features one of the most robust set of options we've seen as of late. The Xbox Play Anywhere feature also works supremely well making it possible to switch back and forth seamlessly between PC and Xbox One gameplay. The saves carry right over and all of the messaging is clear so you're never left wondering if your progress will be overwritten.
Nice ninja edit there George. Probably should start taking screenshots of comments I'm replying to..
There is nothing wrong per se with review embargoes for the traditional press.
Consumers can either wait for reviews or take the plunge and buy the game at launch.
I've been ignoring reviews for years now and if I'm honest it is one of the best "gaming" decisions I made.
At what point did I say or even imply that I'm defending the practice of withholding review copies until launch?
Once again, you fail to realize that there's still people who haven't heard of this meaning that it's useless to complain about EG reporting on it.
the kickstarter is less about the money and more the 6000 backers.
Yes, it takes time to become powerful in Eve, but don't players want exactly that?
who feels the need to overcompensate by taking any opportunity to trash a 350 quid consol
Why am I being salty? Please, do tell...
Not acting the superior cunt, lording over consoles because I have a high end GPU does not equal salty.
There are others @ 2160p. e.g. The Last of Us.
Without any doubt the PS4 Pro offers more bang per buck than a high end PC.
Yet another big name PC release crippled by performance issues.
Sadly this could also spell the ending devs talking about their vision for their games freely and showing genuine enthusiasm.
