  • Sega warns of Total War: Warhammer server issues

    @UncleLou That may be so, but this is a U-turn on Oculus' original design ethic. And is a move likely to do harm to both the oculus and VR as a whole. Reply +2
  • After 10 years of waiting, Half-Life 2: Episode 3 seems further away than ever

  • Moz 23/05/2016

    @cloudskipa I seem to remember Valve using that as an excuse at one point. Which for a full HL3 makes sense. But surely HL2:E3 should be made in similar style to the other episode without the need for anything ground breaking. Reply +3
  • Moz 23/05/2016

    The thing that winds me up is that they sold the episodes on the premise of there being 3, which is very different to a company just ending a franchise. Reply +13

    @IronSoldier maybe they ignored the beta status because they're as tired as the rest of us of devs hiding behind the beta banner as an excuse for any bugs left in the game. Reply -1

  • Nintendo's NX console launches March 2017 globally

  • Moz 27/04/2016

    I'm not convinced this is right move. While first month sales aren't everything, giving the Neo a head start the NX could prove to be costly.
    Of course the NX could turn out to be nothing like we are expecting making any comparison to the Neo pointless

    @DonNorris - From the looks of things the NX itself will still only get about 6 months of marketing anyway.

  • How PlayStation Neo and the original PS4 will co-exist

  • Moz 20/04/2016

    @michaelprymula it's nothing like sega CD or 32X the games for those were exclusive to the add-ons. The NEO is for starts a full console and it will play all PS4 games like the WiiU plays Wii games or the latest iPad or iPhone will run games from previous "gens" of iDevice they are pulling out all the stops to avoid the fragmentation that add-ons like 32X caused. This is about giving people who are still holding on to their PS3 a bigger upgrade step. While also giving the 'hardcore' the option of improved hardware Reply +1
  • Moz 20/04/2016

    @SpaceMonkey77 I imagine smaller teams will just develop for PS4 original with maybe a res/framerate boost on the Neo. There doesn't appear to be a requirement to have Neo inhancments in your game. Just for new games if inhancments are planned they have to be included day one not added later. Reply 0
  • Microsoft on cross-network play, Xbox One dev kits and more

  • Moz 08/04/2016

    @Badcompany88 one advantage I can see is for smaller games cross platform play at least maximises the number of player there are the match up against, which will help keep the online part of game viable for longer Reply +1

    @Bayonetduck wouldn't surprise me if PS4K is accompanied by the release of a 4K camera with standard USB. Even if they don't, releasinga PC version of the camera or an adapter is easy enough to do Reply 0
  • Moz 29/03/2016

    smart bit of marketing, even if they don't follow through with this people wanting VR on PC and console will go with PSVR as their first buy.
    Also the PSVR processing module could be a god send for people with PCs that don't quite hit the requirements for 90fps.
    Also the 120hz screen could be good people who still get motion sick using Oculus or Vive

  • We know PlayStation 4.5 is real - but why is Sony making it?

    @VotesForCows It's not what you used to sign up for when buying a console. But times change. Reply +1
  • Moz 24/03/2016

    Personally I think we've reach the point now were other then better visuals new hardware isn't going to allow for 'improve gameplay' like it has in the past. So all any new console is every go to bring to the table moving forward is improved visuals.
    I see no issues with moving to a model where by there is a new console released every 3 years to deliver that improvement in graphics for the people that want it, and then games to come out being compatible with the most recent 3 generations of consoles offering low, medium and high graphics offerings.

    It will still remain a far easier development environment verse making games for PC.
    You maintain the old long life span of consoles for people who want it while offering more up to date tech for the people who want that. (400 every 3 years is still less then the PC elite shell out on hardware)

    As for the PS4K specifically I'm expecting it to have specs that can run all the current PS4 games at 1080p60 comfortably and then include a hardware up-scaler to give a 4K output, which could still result in a better image quality vs leaving the 4KTV to do the upscale.

  • After 130 hours of play, someone's maxed out The Division

  • Moz 18/03/2016

    This has to have been a couple of people playing the same account surely. Reply +1
  • There's a problem with The Division's Dark Zone

  • Moz 18/03/2016

    It's the people who play for 10+ hours a day who are the real issue. The people who complain about the lack of end game content in this and many other similar games are the people with way too much time to play. They also seem to be the most vocal people.
    If they made the game so that there was enough content to fill 10 hours a day for weeks on end then the other 90% who don't have as much time would never get to experience the full game.

    Looks interesting will have to give it s look. They have lots of backers but sadly their $50 - $100 bracket awards are a little lame not much incentive for people to go above the basic "get the game " tire unless they have money to burn on the higher tires Reply +2

    @SwissTony1994 For the different consoles at least there's zero reason not to have XB1 and XB2 players playing together. Reply 0
  • Moz 01/03/2016

    Called it when XB1 and PS4 were announced. Just following Apples lead.
    The gen of consoles have strong enough hardware that any games release in the next 10 years or more will be able to run with down-graded graphics compared to the "current" model of hardware.
    E.g. COD will be 900p on XB1 and then 1080p on XB1.2 but otherwise be the same game.

    Will mean the "next gen" consoles won't sell as fast at launch but they should keep a consistent sales level as some people will upgrade every gen and other every other gen like they do with Mobile phones at the moment

  • It looks like Forza is heading to PC

  • Moz 01/03/2016

    For all the people who think this means XBox is dead is very wrong. The sales of XB1 and PS4 show that there is a plenty big enough market for dedicated consoles. And it's all down to simplicity of consoles. Even with the need to now install games on console it's still a lot easier to game on console then PC because you know the games you buy are just going to work. (with the exception of the odd bad release)
    This is just MS ending making exclusives soly for Xbox

    @timeless001 Releasing the NTSC version in the UK probably isn't as simple as just releasing it, as it's technically a different version of the game it would likely need to go through rating board again, may even need the music re-licencing as that is often on a region by region basis Reply 0
  • Sony unlocks more CPU power for PS4 game developers

  • Moz 30/11/2015

    @xFiReStOrMx indeed though the OS will be doing less while a game is running, if those background tasks can fit on one CPU or not only Sony can say but fingers crossed it can. Reply 0
  • Moz 30/11/2015

    @TallestJon96 If they do it properly then they'll optimise the OS to the point that it needs less resource then release the resource to Dev. But that's a big if. Reply 0

    @Antropie While it was a buggy mess all round Assassin's Creed Unity did run better on XB1 thanx to the improved CPU handling the high numbers of NPCs better.

    Real world examples will indeed be thin on the ground as most multi platform titles will be developed with the weaker hardware in mind (when developed well).

    However there is a very real possibility of there being 1st/2nd party XB1 games that just wouldn't be possible on the PS4.

  • Moz 30/11/2015

    @Malek86 I'd hope with a dedicated OS that they could fit all the back processes on 1 core, though tbh I would be surprised if they have.

    The sluggishness of both systems OS (especially the overlays) is quite frankly baffling though I imagine this has more to do with the OS having limited access to the RAM while a game is running rather then available clock cycles.

  • Moz 30/11/2015

    @Antropie I don't see the eye roll being needed. Especially from someone with a fanboy blinkered understanding of hardware. I even said that the PS4 has a significant graphics advantage.

    And when both systems have weak CPUs the XB1s lead in that area is not insignificant as Devs need every clock cycle they can lay their hands.

    The PS4 is undeniably over all the better hardware, however there will be games that are better suited to the XB1s set-up.

    Now get over yourself and move on

  • Moz 30/11/2015

    @Jimez in short no. The XBOne has always had a CPU lead over the PS4 even before the 7th core was available.
    However the PS4 has a significant (on paper at least) GPU advantage.
    Reply -1
  • Moz 30/11/2015

    Surely the simplest solution would be for the 7th core to fully available to the game when it's full screen, and then made available to the OS when you go to dashboard, as at that point most games pause any way to processing requirements drop drastically anyway. Reply +14
  • Better than Halo?

  • Moz 30/11/2015

    @sherpa1984 where to begin.

    "I feel a lot of things that are your opinion are stated as a fact ("Halo's managed decline")"
    - Halo's decline is a fact that can be backed up by the sales figures

    "Surely it's nave telling readers that CoD map packs are released on PS4 first because of the larger player base and not because Sony was the highest bidder?"
    - EA aren't stupid while money is a factor it's no coincidence that EA swapped sponsors once it was clear that the PS4 had and would keep the bigger market share.

    "Finally, if console 1 plays game A and console 2 plays games A and B, game A will always "win" a popularity contest."
    - Mostly true but in the past Halo games have broken this rule and out sold the competition despite being a console exclusive, which loops us back to the decline in Halo's popularity.

  • The problem of farming, and the rise of video game gardens

  • Moz 28/06/2015

    Part of what we are seeing at the moment is the result of everyone complaining about AAA games being too short a few years back leading developers to time pad their games unfortunately you add to that the desire to make extra money from dlc and you end up with a single game taking up all your time (Destiny I'm looking at you), which sure has to be counter productive to the industry in the long run as more and more gamers end up devoting all their time and money to singular game which sure can't hope to get as much money out of people vs them buying a full price game once or twice a month.
