Controllers are in need of innovation, I hope this is as good over time as it sounds.
As much as I hate to say it, there's a distinct possibility that G-Sync will go the same way, particularly if Freesync is widely adopted because of it's free license.
It does make you wander what Oculus have been doing the last 3 years. 4 developer models down and we are still nowhere near an commercial release. They had a big cash injection, support from Valve and a dedicated developer community behind them. [Before they sold the business to Facebook]. They could easily have been the first one out with no competition around them.
They had a big cash injection
The magic of a completely portable and wireless VR headset is easy to under-estimate until you have experienced it. We dont have the raw horsepower of a high-end gaming PC yet, but there are valuable compensations that make it a very interesting trade-off. And many developers will thrive on the platform, especially as it improves at the rapid pace of the mobile ecosystem.
The only significant issue were facing right now with mobile devices is not peak hours, but how long they can sustain VR running at large fractions of that power. While we will continue to need mobile systems that get faster and faster with more and more cores and wider and wider GPUs. Its fine right now if you want the short 15-minute experiences that offer a lot of interesting stuff. But looking ahead, we want people to be in VR for hours at a time. There are some significant challenges that we have to face there.
How the hell is a stand alone platform going to power the graphical demands of a Rift?
Facebook acquisition of Oculus
Job simulator? No thanks. At least not unless you add another word to the name then it's an insta buy.
Now they need games
What I'm seeing here is just a machine running something that looks like fairly basic machine learning working on the principle of trial and error.
The [PS4] bottleneck seems to be related to the flashlight and grass textures, though the foliage itself does not actually cast shadows.
the XB1 version could re-use Direct3D code from previous projects using the same engine while for the PS4 version they had to write the graphics code almost from scratch and thus didn't have the same amount of time to optimize it.
Odd when you consider the 8GB 970 comes out in a month or so.
Anyone remember when Valve made games?
Value for money is extremely subjective as a lot of it boils down to income and available funds to squander.
Only thing missing is sneaking through preposterously large air vents?
space cadets will find much to love here, in the bustle of a perennial galactic rush hour. Veterans, however, need not apply
as I get older I value shorter games more and more. It's been a long time since I played a game that didn't overstay its welcome - and that includes the Uncharted series and The Last of Us. It's like the games want to be 6 hours long, and then the team HAS to pad it to 10 hours, or people will whine about value.
For me, the lack of a single player campaign in a full retail title makes it "Avoid"
The reason I ask is PC games are generally cheaper than console games or are we just talking about shared achievements and PC vs XBox One online gaming?
Incidentally this does not mean that Microsoft will start charging a yearly subscription or anything like that: some people have interpreted it this way, but Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella confirmed otherwise immediately after the conference.
PC gamers wanting cross-buy (LOL, as if) to XBO is going to be in such a minority it's going to be laughably bad.
So do Windows 8 computers get this as a free upgrade?
At GDC 2015, Xbox will share new tools and roadmaps with developers for creating games on Windows 10 devices. On March 4th at 11:00 PT, Spencer will host a presentation about developing games across the Microsoft ecosystem from Windows 10 PCs, to Xbox One consoles.
t's not necessarily the game, it's the platform and the marketing
76 on Metacritic... nothing to see here.
