    @GoldenFrog
    you do realise Sony are way more greed driven than MS yeah. Even though Sony and the PS4 is a huge success.
    oh get lost frog. or think objectively please.

    coming out from PS2, Sony engineered a stable console packed-to-the-brim with tech most were only still dreaming or confused about. they offered free online and created "home" to enjoy for free. It largely failed, but you can not disregard their investment. they invested in one new franchise after the other - some genuine gems, some not so much. Certainly not all tried-and-tested cash-ins like MS continuously spits out.

    the customers shunned them and chose to pay for an ill-engineered disaster of a machine, paid for online and were contented with gung-ho macho repeats of games which had been released each year already.

    then MS created "One" (the bone right?). Weak, underpowered, ill-focused. After that they release MT-infested games to make more bucks. while Sony still invests in new games, good and bad.

    who's in there for the cash and only the cash huh? the company which has innovation, invention and engineering in its DNA? or the one which made money by acquisition and monopolisation?

    @GoldenFrog do you actually learn new things from time to time I wonder. You have been shown time and again that ps4 2015 line up was jam packed with exclusives, together with remasters. While your precious had what? Two installments of biannual games. Reply +5

    you're absolutely right. +1.

    I just hope that ep13 does not go back to his last antics.

    I told him quite politely / welcomed him back when he was unbanned the first time. then look at what happened this week.

    not holding my hopes up really.

  • Seasons mod makes Fallout 4 look like The Last of Us

    I don't know mate, I don't know the solution. Perhaps you could just not repeatedly comment on what you think about PS4 and it's games, after all I think we all know how you feel about it.
    the troll doesn't stick to the promises, you could call them resolutions in these days, he himself makes. after his "unban" (first time ever I see that on this site btw), he told us he would stop posting about Sony. That took a mere week before he started all over again.

    you always arrive late and slate me for no reason. Cheers though. I state again. The mid has nothing to do with TLOU. Calm down :) bit strange hours later you come on and start calling for my head. I've been on another thread on here EG about Nintendo and that game based on cancer and the comments are awful. Mine are tame and not an issue :)
    hey troll. This might be news to you, but I choose myself when I visit, what I read, what I write, who I reply to, who I defend and who I target.

    Here's why I answered you: I was happily reading through the comments (newest to oldest as always) and your name popped up again and again, yet another time. Bashing one of the all-time gems. Based on pure prejudice too! Your sorry, worthless gut draws attention. I too learned that gemini had left (was banned?) because of YOU. I don't give a HOOT you don't like him. The mods should not either. What they SHOULD heed is all these members complaining about YOU.

    You keep on saying you don't do anything wrong. Then how the fuck do you explain yourself that so many members are sick and tired of you?!

    Easy buddy, just an opinion, bit rude there. I've not done anything wrong at all
    it is incredibly rude to troll on the way you do. You don't have an opinion, you have a prejudice. One which so many of us are so incredibly tired of hearing.

    Like man.the.king I'll call for you ban again ffs. Even though when, for some strange reason, your ban was undone and I welcomed you back. You got emotional with me, because of me and I apologized then. I see now you do not really deserve that. All negativity against your person is because of your own incessant, stupid, worthless prejudice.

    Be gone chap. Register on the Xbox forums. Although even there, I think people would get tired of you quite quickly.

    djesus. ban that guy!

    edit: @mods - that's already two good members I know of who got axed because of that prick I replied to. Shouldn't the prick have been banned instead?!

  • MeBrains 13/01/2016

    @DX12 maybe EG should put a post up listing all the reasons not to preorder this.

    it wouldn't be the first of its order.


    where does it say this isn't XB1 footage?
    So 60/40 guess more towards XB1 due to the exclusive deal between this game and xbox.
    you see it's not Xbone footage - so if anything, it would be 40/60 against Xbone footage. I'd even say 10/90. Or do you really think that somehow, some magical way, your precious has learned new tricks in just a few months? I mean please. Even the last exclusives (FM6 and H5) didn't look all that great. And these are, so we should suppose, better optimised than x-platform stuff.

    @DX12 heeeeyyy! :)

    I heard the same thing 99.9% of games on ps4 only use 0.1% of the power inside the ps4 the rest is just spare.
    always being the diminutive one when talking ps4 huh? You surely have heard that ps4, unlike its main competitor, computes its "shit" beyond the cloud, effectively tapping into the strange properties of spacetime. Thus, with the powah of "beyond the cloud" effectively being infinite, it uses 0% of the powah it can tap into!

    Big difference there m8.

    Sony, always one step beyond the Microsofts!

    Yet another game which DOESN'T show a 50% lead in graphics or performance.
    1080p 30fps at the same level in graphic Quality.
    look xbdf. you're right. this is another game which does not show a 50% lead in, what I refer to for simplicity's sake as, quality (your "graphics or performance"). I think nobody in their right mind would try to defend that PS4, in all cases, commands a 50% lead in everything.

    What we do know for example is that numerous games (you can find more than one example yourself, can you?) render at 900p on Your Precious and at 1080p on the Eye of Sauron. That by itself is a 43.9583333333...% difference (an irrational number, I know). Add that to the fact that, in these examples you have found yourself, the Eye of Sauron actually is able to hold a better performance (i.e. "fps" or "frames per second") and you could deduce that, what you refer to as imaginary (this time not referring to the kind of numbers, but rather to a certain mental projection), in fact is real on quite some occasions. Namely, a 50% lead.

    Of course, I do not need to lecture you, since you have such a good grasp of higher order concepts such as " better". In fact I'm still looking forward to your answer to my question about "better".

    eh?

    I write thee on the comments section about a subpar game, that I just have played a bit of The Order: 1886. Lo and behold, after my initial low impression of it a few months ago, I got into the story this time while standing in awe of its graphics. I quite liked it. Will stop playing now for a few weeks or it's going to be over before I know it.

    @DX12 you seem to have a strict definition of "better" xbd...

    so tell me. if the overall Quality is the same (or sligtly " better" for that matter) and the gameplay is the same (or slightly "worse"), do we still need the pixels to be "better" in order to come to an objective understanding of what is actually " better" (or "better")?

    honest question really.

    I've recently just picked up the keys to my brand new 4 bed abode. All thanks to Sonys PSN outage compensatory scheme.
    waw. pretty nice. they did take their time with you. I got a refurbished one, made of dead 360's. They still have enough heat for the house to be a passive one!


    Which was strange...seeing as PSN has never, ever been down.
    indeed. and in these days I wasn't even paying for online! did yours come with a Linux server environment? There was something in my contract saying that MS's technology was evaluated, but was found to be too unstable, subpar (and expensive)?

    It was a paid-for conspiracy by MS due to PS3 overtaking the 360 in global sales.

  • Xbox in 2015: A textbook year, but it's time to innovate again

  • MeBrains 08/01/2016

    @Uncompetative hey. no problem. still going on with this thread huh? still your extremely valid points against a few rabbits blinded by the television.

    it's no secret I do not like MS's offering in the console market. Actually I do not like MS all that much ever since having worked with Sony. They were blatantly copying everything VAIO did right. All the time. The company has never invented anything. It's all copied or bought. Their bottom line will always be more important than their care of their customers and your points about MTs are perfectly in-line with that credo.

    They not only release an ill-engineered machine. Now they also lie about what you get as a customer. It's amazing that Sony has had class-actions for basically stupid stuff, while MS, with frankly scandalous practices, seems to get away with it all.

    Moreover, thanks to MS, I do not have the forward-thinking HW anymore in my console like I had in its predecessor AND I need to pay for online now.

    Sod off I'd say. It's a shame so many are blind to it.

    @Cyber6
    I love when people say Sony "saved their big guns for 2016" as if it's all part of Sony's grand plan to let their console be less attractive for a couple years and have people buy their console later. It's such a weird thing to say like "I'm happy PS4 doesn't need exclusives." Really it just seems like such a warped mindset to have.
    only xboxers seem to say that chaps. they seem to be fed with the incorrect notion that PS did not have exclusives "for a couple of years". As, you see, there are plenty. Raw numbers tell you PS4 has more exclusives than Xbone.

    As, as somebody among many not having the slightest interest in yearly rehashes like Halo, Forza and Gears, what has the console to give to me?

    @ziggy_played_guitar it's ok. I only reacted to your "I guess your field is not engineering". ClemFandango has been more inquisitive about my person.

    OK for Mobile Phones and PCs. Unix is from Bell Labs. Tim Berners Lee is credited for HTTP - furthering ideas first explained by Ted Nelson and Vannavar Bush.

    You can do the same with "first transistor tv", "first IC radio", "first CD player", "first portable cassette player", "the 3,5'' floppy", "first portable TV" etc.

    I agree with you though, that genuinely new inventions, market-changing things are becoming more difficult these days (going from innovation to innovation, as opposed to "invention"), or, it all goes too fast and we just can not compile it all anymore (invention after invention after invention...).

    I'll admit another thing too. When you said something like - in the end, you'll just mention Sony invented sliced bread, you were partially right.

    And a bit of a meagre harvest I'd say for a company as big as MS is.

    Anyhows. I have tried to identify some in the past already. Each time I thought I had one - after a few searches, I had to concede that it was either bought or copied by MS. I found literally none, except for "Live" (said so years ago already here in the comments too).

    Sorry for the loss of brain cells. I know you need them. ;)


    I seem to be calling this quits as well though. Seems like my initial remark about the article's title is not so far-fetched. The "time to innovate _again_" is completely incorrect. "Time to innovate" would have been better.
