    @Antropie - No, you just don't get it. My answer? Read the god dam post.

    Ignore me please...
    I'm happy to oblige.

    @Antropie - Ah, so you admit to losing the argument then by resorting to insults when all else (including made up resolution claims you couldn't possibly know for future games) fails. Good job.

    Its pretty evident nothing anyone can say will register while you're wearing those Sony glasses.

    @Antropie - I'm not sure how you came to that conclusion after numberous posts of mine saying the same thing and trying to explain it to you over and over? Future multiplats will most likely reach the same conclusion. However, we simply don't know if exclusives on the bone will match the Ps4 graphically as devs get to know the hardware better and optimise for the system. The small gap in power will always be there, nothing can make up for that, but will devs use that extra power on Ps4 to the best of its ability? Hopefully they will but theres a chance they wont and on those occasions the bone version may match the Ps4 graphically on whichever game it is. I can't really be any clearer than that.

    I'm not sure how you brought up resolution to begin with either, as the post I commented on was you trying to make out the screenshots of tomb raiders textures looked poor when infact I saw nothing wrong with them.

    @Antropie - Nope. Again, I never said that. You have taken the time and effort to write out a list of 900p games already out. I/myself cant be bothered. I have been saying we simply don't know what devs will settle on in upcoming games until they are released and comparing software as proof of the power of a certain console (as you have been doing) espcially when that software is exclusive is completely different to comparing hardware.

    @Antropie - Use your brain? Of course the Ps4 mutltiplats perform better. I have said that numberous times. What I'm saying (and so far you've failed to grasp) is that the gulf between the consoles is so small you would not see massive differences with exclusive titles which the devs optimise them to run the best they possibly can for the platform they are on, so TR and Uncharted could in theory both be running at the same performance on a technical level. You're going purely by hardware and in this instance the gap is not great enough to warrant that. You're not taking into account different coding. Reply -1
  • SonicUk 17/07/2015

    @Antropie - I'm not saying all exclusives will be 1080p or run at 60fps. There is however a good possibility they will run better than a multiplat. What res or fps the final game settles on is down to the devs.

    You seem to have cherry picked Forza to suit your argument. There are 1080p games on the Bone, but tbh I can't be bothered to look them all up and am under no obligation to do so. We all know they exist. There are however some people in this forum that will be able to point every single one of them out.

    @Antropie - How do you know? Are you a programmer? Its ironic that someone who thinks 44% more pixels in a game = 50% more powerful console is calling others stupid. Reply +1

    @XbDf - I don't really care what you think to be perfectly honest. If I choose to refer to a console which I've said right from the start was given a stupid name, thats up to me, and I have said the same thing about other consoles in the past. If I wish to shorthand it to Bone, thats my perogative. What you make of that being a Ms propaganda machine is not my concern. Of course, you have nothing on me so I would expect you to go over my comments with a magnifying glass and try to pick out the slightest thing that could possibly offend your sensibilities. If a perfectly innocent shorthand offends you so much I suggest you stay away from the internet. You're obviously not mature enough to be using it anyway. Reply +2

    @Antropie - Jeez, you're like a dog with a bone...

    I never said that though did I. Batman was not built from the ground up as an exclusive. If it was, there is no doubt it would run or look better on the specific console it was designed to run on. You don't seem to understand the difference with making something from the ground up for a specific set of hardware and making something across multiple hardware configurations.

  • SonicUk 17/07/2015

    @XbDf - Haha. I'm sorry, I just can't take you seriously.

    So let me get this straight, just because I refer to your precious console in shorthand that makes me an opposing fanboy? So because I refer to my Super Nintendo as a "Snes" I must be a Sega fanboy? Hold on though, because I refer to my Dreamcast often as a "Dc" so now what allegiance do I hold?

    As I said, its rich coming from you. Really pathetic and to be honest I'm real surprised you're still here, playing the victim. Haven't you got anything better to do? You need professional help.

    @Antropie - And there are games that are 1080p on the Bone. Your point? By your own logic they are just as powerful as each other then? I guess if a dev releases a framerate or resolution boosting patch, that magically makes the recieving console more powerful? Does it grow new hardware inside, borg style? I guess I wont bother upgrading my Pc when I can just crank up the res in the menus to make my Pc have Titan levels of performance! Reply 0

    @Antropie - Ok. So I got my facts wrong about Mario Kart, fair enough (I did have a disclaimer in there) but 50% more powerful??!!? Whos arse did you pull those figures out from? Its entirely feasible for two exclusives optimised for each platform to have similar performances on different consoles. Multiplats wont have had the same attention to detail coding wise as exclusives. I cant say what Batman would run at if it were a Ms exclusive. However, there is a possibility it could run at 1080p and 30fps of course. I wouldn't presume anything. I get that you're a Ps fanboy, but seriously, come on. Reply -2

    @XbDf - You still here? Yes, Bone. Thats the appreviation of Xbone. Its not my fault Ms couldn't come up with a better/less stupid/less confusing to xbox 1owners name for their console (which I've said from the day it was announced) but because I refer to said console in shorthand that makes me a fanboy? Coming from the guy who wrote a massive post about "sony ponys". You'll forgive me if I don't lose sleep over what you think. Besides, by your own rules its "my opinion" so you cant say anything about that. Isn't that right? Reply +2

    @UncleLou - Agreed as well. Reply +2
  • SonicUk 17/07/2015

    @Antropie - Not at all. Mario Kart 8 looks great for the hardware but on a technical level, sure the modern consoles have better looking games (although bear in mind Mk8 does run at 1080p unless I've got my info wrong which is something the modern consoles sometimes struggle with, the Bone suffering worse in most cases). However, I'd expect that outcome because of the massive gulf in performance between the Wii U and the more powerful consoles. However, comparing the Ps4 and Bone, the power difference is marginal in favour of the Ps4 and not the huge grand canyon size some people believe. Therefore, its entirely feasible that two completely different exclusive (therefore optimised for each platform) games can be similar on a technical level. On a hardware level sure, but how can you possibly compare two exclusive games on rival platforms with marginal differences?

    And I say exclusive because at this time, until we hear different it is.

    @Antropie - You're comparing apples to oranges. No, I do not agree that Uncharted is more hardware intensive than TR as I am not a coder and have no idea how the game has been programmed to run on the hardware. On a technical level the Ps4 is slightly more powerful than the Bone but comparing actual exclusive games on a technical level is not the same thing. As I have said already twice before if this was a multiplatform game you may have a point, but it isn't. Comparing Pc gpus in this intance is insane, as games aren't made for one specific gpu. Console exclusives however are made for one specific set of hardware so can be optimised to run and look as well as they can on that specific hardware they are designed to run on. Both games are still in development anyway, and can change upon release. I'll be getting both so am looking forward to them both regardless. Reply 0
  • SonicUk 17/07/2015

    @Antropie - Fair enough if you like Uncharted's graphical style more, but as I said just because the platform its running on is slightly more powerful that doesn't mean technically it looks better (it usually does with multiplats as I stated but this isn't a like for like multiplat comparison). They're both being coded by entirely different developers using completely different tools and working techniques, and its entirely possible one game will come out with better optimisation than the other and therefore run at a higher res or fps or have some other graphical effects that aren't present in the other game. Although the Ps4 is technically more powerful than the Bone, the gap between them is no where near as big as you think. Reply -2
  • SonicUk 17/07/2015

    @Antropie - Just because its running on more slightly more powerful hardware doesnt mean it automatically looks "better" (which is subjective). Theres nothing wrong whatsoever with those Tomb Raider screenshots either. Both games look good. Now if we were comparing the same game on two different formats your point might be more valid if one clearly looked better than the other, but that isn't the case here. Reply +3

    @dogmamstaruk - Absolutely. I recently called out one such very vocal Sony fanboy on the subject for doing the same thing. I don't visit Ms threads often as I don't yet own an Xbox one and my 360 is rarely mentioned in the news these days therfore its not really relevant to me and I don't visit threads for consoles I don't own, unless the particular topic being discussed is of a particular interest to me. I certainly wouldn't bother posting in a forum for a console I hate though, and waste my time attempting to give it backhanded compliments while promoting my favourite console of choice like others do.

You can claim innocence and spin it however you want but everyone knows your agenda and one glance at your post history is all thats needed for those that don't. Your post about "sony ponies" in this very thread shows your true colours. It has nothing to do with having an "opinion". For your information I'm very much looking forward to both the new Gears and Halo 5. Shows how little you know I guess. Reply +3

    @TheDarkSide - Except he doesnt have an opinion, just Ms propaganda in a Sony thread where its not wanted or welcome. He does it every single time without fail. You can even enter the thread and count down the time til he arrives and posts some Ms fanboy drivel about how the Ms eqivalent to whatever is being discussed is "better" in some way which is not only off topic, but is just blatant trolling and looking around it looks as though I'm not the only one sick of it. Skippy does the exact same thing (and by sheer coincidence, or not, their posts look remarkably similar...). Both of course dress it up as "opinion" but it is simple trolling. Still, I know I shouldn't feed it but I just can't help myself... Reply +2

    @FabricatedLunatic - Yeah, ol skippy had the nerve to accuse me of that in another thread where I pointed out his Ms fanboy bullshit (and will continue to do so). If anyone calls him out they'll either get "its my opinion" or be accused of "bullying". It really is pathetic. Isn't it about time the mods did something about him, xbdf and the other trolls on here? I mean, those two in particular may as well just copy and paste " Microsoft! Microsoft! Microsoft! Hate Sony. Hate Sony. Hate Sony." into every thread. Sure, Skippy's never rude so he can't be banned and he knows it (his youtube channel however tells a different story), but surely someone that exists just to annoy others and derail every thread that features the opposing console to that which his aligences lie can be dealt with?

    I see the usual suspects are once again in a thread for a console they don't own, have no interest in, hate the company that made it and actively go out of their way to give it backhanded compliments while simultaniously promoting the competition. As usual when called out on their bullshit they respond with "its my opinion". How predictable. Seriously, have you got nothing better to do? Reply +14
  • Batman: Arkham Knight PC will stay broken until this autumn - report

  • SonicUk 17/07/2015

    @GreyBeard - I respect that but it still doesnt change the fact the game was released blatantly broken and the people responsible knew it. It should have been delayed until it was ready rather than released with the attitude of "we'll patch it later". This is a part of a much bigger problem this industry has and it could easily be resolved by publishers not releasing unfinished products. Reply +2
  • SonicUk 17/07/2015

    And I thought AC unity was broken on launch. Seriously, this trend of publishers releasing blatantly unfinished games has got out way of hand (along with plenty of other customer shafting practices in this industry). Hopefully the bad publicity and huge outcry about Batman and the way its been thrust into the spotlight for all the wrong reasons might just make publishers take notice now. I do remain doubtful however, as I've been around long enough to realise just how broken the industry is nowadays and how publishers will literally try anything to pull a fast one over their customers for the sake of . They even admitted in a recent interview that the Pc version of the game was no-where near ready, and as is well known by now, kept secret about the fact the Pc version was being handled by a different developer and owners only finding out in the credits. The whole thing has been one clusterfuck after another. I play mainly on consoles but even so this kind of thing is disgusting on any platform and if publiahers think they can get away with it the next game that gets churned out in an unplayabke state like this may just be for a console. This is something that effects everyone, no matter what hardware you have or your gaming preferences and needs to stop, NOW. I hope this may make publishers think twice about pulling similar stunts in the future, but as I said, I remain skeptical. Reply 0
  • CoD: Black Ops 3's Juggernog Edition includes a functioning mini-fridge

    @XbDf - Kid? Thats a new one. I haven't been called that in years.

    Pot. Kettle. Black.

    The reason you bring up Destiny is because you can also bring up Sony in the same breath and slag them off for having the exact same kind of exclusivity deal Ms have enjoyed for years. You know it, I know it and everyone else round here who is tired of your pro Ms, anti Sony bullshit knows it. You could've simply mentioned exclusivity deals without mentioning Sony, but you didn't, even going as far to say in your first post "no wonder Ms passed on this trash" implying negativity towards Sony while promoting Ms as some kind of goodwill corporation. Laughable. Stupidity? You're full of it.

    No twisting of words necessary, your words are right there and your post history speaks for itself.

    @XbDf - I agree if you don't want it, don't buy it. However, some people do want these "gimmicks". My original point about your laughable claim Ms jettisoned Cod exclusivity insinuating it was for the greater good still stands, as does my point that I never heard you complaining when Ms had Cod or other game exclusivity (Splinter Cell comes to mind amongst others). I don't know what Sony or Destiny has to do with a Cod collectors edition article either, although I can see why you brought it up of course, to derail the thread with anti-Sony bullshit and make out Ms are like some saviour of gaming, like you do in every thread. It would be laughable if it wernet so sad and predictable. Reply -1
  • SonicUk 10/07/2015

    @XbDf - Timed exclusive or paid for exclusive stuff only hurts gamers, I agree on that part. However, Sony is hardly to blame here and Ms are hardly the white knights of the gaming industry as your post implies. Cod has always had console exclusivity with Ms all these years as have other games but I never saw you crying out against that. All I saw is a sly dig at Sony (as usual). Reply 0
  • SonicUk 10/07/2015

    @XbDf - Funny. Microsoft seemed perfectly happy to have exclusive deals with cod for the past EIGHT games. Guess you just have to get that sly dig at Sony in there somewhere eh?

    As for the actual topic, I don't know what all the fuss is about. No ones forcing anyone to buy special editions. They are for collectors. If people don't want a special editon then don't buy one. Just buy the normal game instead. I do however think a mini fridge is a bit wrong here when past editions have included military themed stuff. And I take a dislike to a "digital soundtrack" (which you cannot "collect" in a collectors edition) as well as any other digital dlc. Collectors editions should include only physical items.

    @jamieleng - If the price is right (120 or less for me to warrant a purchase). Value is subjective. Of course people have opinons on what they themselves would deem to be good or bad value and there's nothing wrong with that at all. However, no one has the right to tell someone else what they should or shouldn't do with their own money. Reply 0

    I like it and I really don't get the hate. If people don't like it, don't buy it. I think this is a good edition for collectors who like physical stuff, which afterall is the whole point in collectors editions. If the price is right in the uk I will buy this as I'm both a huge fan of Mirrors Edge and I like collecting stuff. Reply -1
  • Is DriveClub finally up to speed?

    @cloudskipa - So the troll has the nerve to call others who show him for what he is trolls? You're unbelivable. And accusing someone who points out your bullshit of bullying? Really??? Thats a new low, even for you. I have never personally "attacked" you, "harrased" you or any other nonsense, although I have pointed out (and will continue to do so) your blatant pro-ms, anti-sony stance, the way you invade every thread with that agenda and turn it into a fanboy war, time, after time, after time. Spin it whichever way you want, but we all know you are not rude so you cannot be banned. You know it, I know it and so does every other user who is sick and tired of your microsoft propaganda. Your youtube account however shows a very different story so don't act all high and mighty with me sunshine.

    As for being "upset" or "whinging" about your "opinion" thats laughable, but as I have already said numberous times your "opinion" doesn't hold much sway around here and most long time members can see you for what you are - a microsoft PR machine and possibly the most deluded fanboy I've ever been unfortunate to come across. I call out fanboys whenever I see them, you just happen to be the most prevalent (hence your less than stella reputation on here).

    You freely admit you're not interested in Sony or the Playstation so why do you bother to come into every Sony thread and post off topic, ms fanboy gibberish when the discussion has nothing to do with that? The answer is above.

    As I said, I will continue to point out your bullshit until you either stop talking bollocks in Sony threads or piss off and leave normal users in peace - whichever comes first.

    @Episode13 - You're not listening dude. Northern Lights. I'm not saying the game is better just because they are in it. I'm not using it as a bullet point in silly fanboy wars or anything like that. I was just saying how it's one of the only (if not the only) driving game I've seen with the northern lights in it, how grateful I am for that and how beautiful I think they are in real life. I'm not comparing weather effects in Forza or anything else to Driveclub, although if I were as I said I personally think Driveclub looks better than anything else I've seen in that department released on any platform so far (and as I've said a couple of times now I own Forza Horizon so know what the graphics are like in that game). If you prefer them thats cool, but I prefer Driveclubs weather effects, but as I said I wasn't comparing, I was expressing my appreciation for the beautiful northern lights, and saying how hopefully I will get to see them in real life one day.

    Strange how things work out. If the deal never soured we might never have the Playstation brand as we know it today. I know on the bottom of the Snes there is an expansion port that was never used. I always presumed at some point a Cd based add-on would apprear like the Mega Cd. It never happened obviously but I think that was the basis for what the original concept would have used. Reply 0
