    gamers will never be taken seriously, that some people walked away hands full of money after selling an embarrassing buggy, unfinished product with a hundred misleading trailers should be reflected on an updated review somehow, this is unacceptable. Reply +4

    @nickbonkersperry CPU has to track all the geometry rendered on screen as well, so it's not only a matter of RAM and GPU, the more geometry on screen / off screen the more CPU calculations you need. Reply -1

    MSX version was the best among the 8-bit peers, coop mode and all the content coupled with great graphics and amazing music thanks to the SCC chip made it one of the best "MegaROM" cartridges. Reply +3

  • Lince 20/11/2013

    so it turns out that the PS4 is too powerful for CoD Ghosts... no surprise given the poor quality of the game both in tech and gameplay wise, as Polygon would say, -the game is "too future", "too frames"- Reply +10

  • Face-Off Preview: Battlefield 4 next-gen vs. PC

  • Lince 29/10/2013

    The Xbox One version (or maybe Digital Foundry capture equipment / settings) just boosts sharpening and contrast to the max, detail is lost, there's some videos around showing different contrast and saturation for the Xbox One version.

    Example: See how Xbox One is missing details "thanks" to crushing black level, tweaking gamma, extreme sharpening and saturation in a brave attempt to look on par or better than PS4/PC even when it lacks proper Ambient Occlusion, runs at a lower resolution and, even at that lower resolution, manages a worse framerate than the PS4. First multi-platform game and the Xbox One already resorting to obscure tricks to hide how underpowered it is.



    look at all the missing details... shame.

    also:

    look what happens when you render in lower res and do some extreme sharpening on top of that:



    very poor showing here Microsoft:

    PS4 version rendering 56% more pixels vs Xbox One,900p vs 720p
    PS4 has anti-aliasing, missing on Xbox One
    PS4 has HBAO ambient occlusion, missing on Xbox One
    PS4 has motion blur in multiplayer, missing on Xbox One
    PS4 runs at a higher framerate in spite of all of the above advantages !!

    and this is just a multiplatform launch title, I wonder what would happen when devs focus on PS4 strengths (also PS4 is much cheaper, you can basically get the game for free if you buy a PS4 instead of the Xbox One).

  • Xbox One exclusive Ryse runs at 900p

  • Lince 17/09/2013

    While we'd clearly prefer 1080p as a target resolution, it's safe to say that the reduction in quality isn't quite as impactful as you might expect in these shots...

    ...given the choice between a consistent gameplay experience at 900p or 1080p with a frame-rate hit, we'd take the smoother performance every time.
    had this been a PS4 exclusive I suspect the wording of these comments would have been a tad more... sour, isn't it Mr. Leadbetter ?

  • Xbox One CPU speed increased by 9.375 per cent

  • Lince 04/09/2013

    It's amazing that Leadbetter can consider the CPU a significant step ahead for a potential 9.38% or whatever when he has stated a 50% GPU advantage (at the time for the PS4) wouldn't make much of a difference.. and don't even get started on other things like HUMA technology the PS4 is supposed to feature, that completely makes up for the allegedly data move engines' advantage and then some, the data would not need be shuffled to the GPU, cycles saved = more performance. Leadbetter would do whatever it takes to make the Xbox One sound on par with the superior PS4 hardware, even misunderstanding some article which stated the word "several" talking about performance and he just took the word "seven" out of nowhere... ah Richard.

    All of this are data straight from Microsoft and Sony, not speculation, and just a quick reminder, Sony has not yet stated the clock of the CPU, just AMD leaked that it wouldn't run underclocked, so we can also expect a surprise that Richard would find hard to digest.

  • Xbox One records the last five minutes of your gameplay

  • Lince 22/07/2013

    Richard Leadbetter getting paranoid about Xbox One lack of features compared to PS4, again, Sony stated this afternoon that it was 15, some sites, included this one, translated the "several" comment as "seven" of course before searching for clarification they preferred the figure closer to the Xbox One "one", so folks, PS4 15 minutes, Xbox 5. End of Story.

    I predict some stomach ulcer coming to Richard Leadbetter in case he doesn't start accepting that this time around PS4 is more powerful than the Xbox One, and we are still waiting for those Xbox 360 games surpassing Uncharted 2&3, God of War or The Last of Us quality.

    Dear Xbox fans, now we are making our console a PlayStation 4 clone, but bigger, less powerful and more expensive... we appreciate and embrace users' feedback (even if we said we firmly believed we were heading for the future of videogames) so if you tweet us "please add 8 GB of GDDR5" we will consider the upgrade, we want to be like the 360 but better, we were just testing the waters, please understand, and yeah... the cloud... what cloud guys ?

    Microsoft shitted their pants with so many preorders going on for PS4 leaving the Xbox One in the dust, multi-billion arrogant USA company have been humbled by Japanese user-friendly Sony, the day Microsoft reach a considerable amount of units sold DRM will be slowly put back in place as they have been discussing them with main third parties, specially Electronic Arts, for a long, long time... EA is pissed now, I know PS4 will benefit from the large amount of titles bound to be Xbox exclusives now to be multiplatform on the more powerful PS4 thanks to Microsoft humiliating 180, you know what Mr. Gates.. DRM or not not buying your VCR tivo consol, overpriced, arrogant, clueless, expecting a lot more changes in the future... no thanks. Reply +13

    biggest disappointment in video-games history, no Internet no play, your ISP fails your games fail... but you can still watch TV, as if we hardcore gamers watched TV... we watch streams, at this point the Xbox One shouldn't be called a "console" any longer, more like a weird TV receiver with Kinnect voice and gesture commands which happens to play* Halo and Gears of War* (playing is not always guaranteed*).

Games like Heavy Rain, Little Big Planet, InFamous, Valkyria Chronicles, Uncharted, Demon's Soul (the original still the hardcore favourite), Journey... and now The Last of Us making the difference between casual gaming and actual, classy gaming for videogames fans, thanks Sony ! even God of War was spectacular and technically unmatched, reasons why I'm going PlayStation for next-gen again, Sony delivering, Microsoft making Call of Duty and TV their main focus, thanks but no.

  • Lince 10/03/2012

    this game doesn't deserve a 10, I was a huge fan of the original ME RPG, ME2 was a huge letdown, a corridor shooter with amateurish level design, something that ME3 has built upon ending in Gears of Wars meets Dragon's Lair, absolutely forgettable. I don't know how this game gets so much praise in the US, a lot of the critics are cringe worthy and overt the top, smells like money hats to me, GTAIV all over again. The game is decent, 7/10 if you're a fan of the ME universe, 5/10 if not. I've been gaming for +30 years now. Later. Reply +4

    That 2007 footage is totally out of place here, I don't understand the reasoning behind it being included here? maybe Mr. Leadbetter needed to comfort himself with the poor hack port job that game was on PS3 making the 360 look like the better hardware or something? I really don't understand.



    Also. is Mr. Leadbetter a developer himself? he is always suggesting the way this or that should have been coded when the 360 version of some game is not optimal, not to mention how deep he goes when the PS3 is the superior version. When the opposite happens he never tells how things should have been done on the PS3 hardware to improve the situation, what's this Mr. Leadbetter doing? he's not serious enough to be featured in a place like Eurogamer to be honest.

    funny, when the PS3 version is clearly the one to get this time around Digital Foundry quickly reminds us of the PC version, they imply the PS3 version is the most complete package, with same visuals, equal performance and better sound plus a free game (Move enabled), but they never say it clearly. When the 360 version wins these face-offs they always say "obviously for the reasons this and that is the one to get". Reply -2
