  • Don't call it a comeback: Xbox One's first year

  • TRUTH 22/11/2014

    I finally got One after testing both systems PS4/One - One just did so much more other then gaming. Graphically they seemed very close and couldn't notice the difference that really bothered me! Online, fitness using Kinect which reads your body HR, now can order Domino's pizza and have tracked for delivery watching TV/gaming, multimedia, streaming, Kinect control, smartglass, the UI just blows PS4 away - the way swapping between apps/games/skyping/snapping, voice control, surfing web, how you can receive Skype watch tv while waiting to go online, use Bing for search's across media/gaming/music with voice ..etc really showed PS4 behind innovation! For the years ahead One seems far more exciting with cloud - not just for gaming, online, media, Kinect, gaming, and other things! So if growing away from gaming, still love gaming, into music and movies, social use, online gaming, multiplayer..etc; One just offers so much more other then just gaming - why pay for just gaming when you can have so much more and gaming!

  • Who needs games: PlayStation 4's first year

  • TRUTH 15/11/2014

    I prefer the media/social/online superior capabilities on Xbox One that surpass PS4 in every way, that can keep you busy when not playing games, or gaming drought. Though One seems to be doing better with exclusives at the moment, even though I rarely play games now days myself. I do find PS4 quiet a un-exciting console at moment, with only Bloodborne exciting me - even though it looks very similar to Dark Souls. I'm not really into indie games, but PS4 line-up does look a bit un-inspiring in exclusives. I think graphically both both consoles are not that ground breaking compared to previous consoles and low/mid range PC's at present - I don't care about minor resolution, graphical effects, fps on one over the other; which most won't notice or care about. I think I've just grown away from gaming as I've got older. This probably the reaon One is so much a better system away from gaming with its media/socil/cloud capabilities that I and family can use that's actually useful to all: Fitness with Kinect, switching between apps and back with commands, better media capabilities, better UI and innovation, streaming, online functions, voice and gesture use which can be and is useful, smartglass; all keeping me busy away from gaming, while the PS4 would have been collecting dust as gaming just don't seem exciting anymore...The PS4 really needs some exiting exclusives games and lots of them, which in reality the most exciting games are now multiformat games, to make PS4 a exciting console as it lacks the functionality in what makes the One a more exciting system now and for the future, in which One will seem to evolve as a more exciting console.

    All three UC games were so overrated! Follow path, no skill needed in navigation, puzzles was a simple move block here in most cases, action set piece after action set piece, no exploration as it was a fixed route, no AI in enemy - just hit the trigger button from behind a wall. Reply 0

    I find PS4 such a dull featureless system ! Being using PS4 for a week now and it just feels boring, esp after using One.. Media, UI, online, control, multiplayer, Kinect use..all make PS4 feel more PS3 rather then a real next gen! Reply 0
  • Digital Foundry: Hands-on with Evolve

  • TRUTH 09/11/2014

    Most people can't tell the difference between 1080p vs 900p. Actually most people don't even notice the difference 720p to 1080p - I've done this on my tv/Blu-ray, playing movies on using 720p then 1080p switching resolution, and only I noticed as I purposely looked at detail but wasn't really a concern, but when tested on people showing the same movie, not one person noticed the drop! This was also doneon games on my now PC running on my HD 50" TV - no one noticed, and even I hardly cared as they nearly looked the same! Reply 0
  • Performance Analysis: Multiplayer on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

  • TRUTH 04/11/2014

    @chowyunfatt
    Small amount of graphical advantage that most won't care about or even notice! Yet One beats PS4 in innovation, media, online gaming, console features, apps, kinect, control options, skype, hdmi input, much better UI and innovation with UI and functions and features, NAS ability streaming, social and sharing, and not forgetting the best in online gaming and matching, faster updates, multitasking/switching features...etc; One is quiet close to PS4 in graphics. Though PS4 graphics are better, but really not by that much and most won't even care or notice! But XBO surpasses it in every others area in big ways! Oh lets not forget faster updates, cloud gaming as with Forza 4/ Titanfall / Forza Horizon 2 / Sunset OD and with Crackdown, Mech Wars..etc coming too; as well as EA ultra cheap subscription giving free games/add ons, direct x12 that will help developers get better gaming performance(not taking about graphics)..etc. XBO will evolve as better more exciting console then PS4 just as the 360 did with PS3, though PS3 had more graphical power, like 4x power of 360 as claimed by Sony back then. Now its 50% more then XB1 as claimed by Sony with PS4 over One, and wasn't PS2 meant to have enough processing power to guild missiles as said by Sony too! The point is none of these claims were true or even close, everyone beloved the hype by Sony, esp fanboys. So at end the PS4 does have a graphical edge, but in reality most won't even notice. PS4 and XB1 will continue to get better results in graphics. This may narrow the gap even more, or it may stay the same - but the reality is its not going to be much difference that will make an obvious improvement to you average everyday gamer!

  • Dragon Age: Inquisition is 1080p on PS4, 900p on Xbox One

  • TRUTH 11/10/2014

    I on the verge of buying a console this week! Having a chance to test both consoles from two differet friends, but with similar games Diablo 3, Metro Redrux, Thief, Shadow of Mordor - Its the One that i'm leaning more toward for!

    Honestly didn't notice much in the graphical difference between PS4/XB1 that made me say 'Oh! man its so much better' - both looked good. I didn't have consoles side by side, but if nothing was obvious that stood out and I never noticed, I don't really care about 1080 or 900! I'm usually quiet keen on getting the best if it's obviously is better - so far graphically there's not much. Both consoles are new, new techniques will be learned so if there is a major advantage that really shows PS4 is so much more graphically capable - I'll pick it up then.

    The reason I'm leaning towards the XB1 is the more I tested it the more I lovd it across its functions: Gaming online was better implemented and organized for you with the function of doing something elese on the console while waiting , voice communication, switching between apps and games, multitasking, voice control use is actually useful, Skype, UI interface is so much better, pad(thug I get use to most joypads easily), HDMI input, more channels, better gaming integration online/apps/voice/friends/multiplayer, and the general fun you can have with the console outside gaming - This really made me see Xbox One as a future evolving interesting machine, which is severely missing from my impression on PS4!

    It just feels more hi-tech and does gaming!

    PS4 is Sony's lifeline as they are losing market and profit practically in every other hardware product! MS are are starting a fresh aprroach across mobile, pc, phones, tablets, consoles - not just for gaming and media, but continuality across devices. MS can go the long run an is its plan to spread Thi across the globe the reason why China and India are becoming more important to MS. Sony is very much PS and MS probably know that!

    I found AC 1-3 very repetitive! Go A to B kill, which can always be done the same way in nearly every mission, then simply outrun everyone! All the skill you built up where just gimmicks when hit and run was all that was required. Take away the story and your doing the same mission over and over again! Never bothered with AC after 3.

  • Diablo 3 on console: when is 60fps not really 60fps?

  • TRUTH 12/08/2014

    Honestly most people don't even notice! I use to care about resolution but when 900 vs 1080, is hardly a change. Also having a lower res, not that anyone notices, allowed more detail and effects at smoother higher frramerates - KI for example.... Give me a game with more detail in graphics and effects and smoother fps rather the forcing 1080p cutting back on detail and effects, and dipping fps. Reply 0

  • TRUTH 25/01/2014

    I just think most people have grown away from Nintendo games. Gamers have grown-up since when it was just Sega vs Nintendo. A lot of great games and classics actually where made by third party developers, eg:Capcom, Konami, Square..etc) Now these same companies make games for Xbox/PS and PC's. I personally rather play Dark Souls, Skyrim, Deus-Ex, The Witcher, Ico, Shadow Of Coleus, Portal, Half Life, Tomb Raider, Diablo..etc then another Mario F-Zero, Zelda..etc game; which don't interest me now days! As I suppose with other gamers too!!! Reply 0
  • iPhone 5S review

  • TRUTH 01/12/2013

    Though I have a W8P Lumia 920 and Nexus 5 - I do find Iphone the cleanest, operative, functional, reliable for use and UI. Everything is neat and tidy with apps using the right integration with other parts of the phone without any problems (Google /Android take note!). From maps, calendar, airplay, facetime, notifications, Siri integration, apps are all finely tuned and work (Android please take note!). It's functional, simple, elegant. Only a bit boring with no widgets or tile customization. Photos and camera is easy to organize use and with a very clean and simple to navigate to find/organize photos. Music is easy to transfer with a good to the point UI, as with videos - no gimmicky bloatware! Though I don't have a IPhone (partner has|); whenI do use it I see all the flaws and missing elegance on my W8P and esp Nexus 5 Android(crashes, glitches). Reply 0

    Having got nexus5 and Lumia920, which can be bought around the same price, you even get the Lumia 920 under £280 32gb. It's the Lumia 920 which feels, looks, runs better: Never crashes, or bugs which I have received on N5 apps. Apps that appear on both OS, its the Windows phone that is smoother, cleaner, jerkiness are non existent, and even adverts that appear on the same app on N5 do not appear on W8. Camera also better, build quality feels solid and is tough (though a little more heavier, and I mean a little, then todays a bit to thin plasticy phones) compared to N5. Reply 0

    I given up on consoles - Im going with Steam Box Machine. Might cost double the price for a top-end Steambox, but will be cheaper over the years - cheaper games, no paywall every month, no charge for multiplayer, free mods and levels for games - will actually be much cheaper. You get the best graphics, resolutions, multiplayer. After a few years you simply upgrade your box. This is PC gaming in a console form and operation. Reply 0

So-far everything seen on next gen consoles looked rather bland compared to the Ultra High settings at 1080p of games like Metro 2033, Battlefield, which ran at approx 40-50fps; But they played very smooth with incredible detail that was amazing to watch.....Never ever bothered looking into X51 R2 until witnessed and showcased that upcoming XB1 and PS4 graphically are far behind, also probably with media too Reply 0

    I was until i found out that PS4 is more powerful with faster Ram. I just want the best looking next-gen Fallout, Skyrim, Witcher, Bioshock, Dragon Dogma, Deus Ex, Dishonored, Thief: Not bothered about exclusives as for me its the third-party titles that are more exciting! If ONE is more powerful then PS4! I will still have to wait and consider due to the NOW uncertainty of MS and ONE, plus how crap W8 phones turned-out after all the hype(which might happen with ONE!); but for now, so-far, its the PS4 is for me. Its cheaper and supposedly more powerful while easy for developers to develop games onn0(unlike PS3). This making PS4 the console to take developers priority over the ONE.

    I think people who are considering XB1 should actually wait and see. If sells well, there will continue to support it, if it doesn't (Xbox), they will probably make a quick exit - MS are very good at this! With the huge amount of negativity everywhere with XboxOne and supposedly less Ram and Graphical power then PS4, I certainly won't be jumping on this year - not prepared to take a risk on a format that seems rather un-liked + un-popular at the moment - A big fan Xbox and 360, but XboxOne just seems untrustworthy and MS have previously mentioned that graphics will not be there priority in there next console (now XboxOne); which for me make MS console even less appealing, esp in the long run.

    A person who has a passion for any sort of media mostly buys the physical format as its owned, art, can do what you want with it - Books or Kindle, Bluray or digital, Vinyl/CD or download - There are choices that should allowed, not forced as MS wants. But for menot necessarily with games) digital is souless and empty when compared to actually owning the media, art, info, and physical visible whole package of a book/blursy/cd/vynil - esp classics! You have no value ot soul or feeling of ownership with digital - which gamers feel with owning games.

    Now MS has changed its DRM plan - there policy still allows them to bring it back and even kill switch your DRM games!...In honesty I"ve lost faith on MS (even with there lack of support for W8 phones). The main NOW concern for me is the actual power of XB1, when compared to PS4, XB1 could become the 2nd choice for developers - downgrading parts of games to work on XB1, as how 360 games were better then PS3 multiformat games! I just want the best next gen Fallout, Skyrim, Witcher 3, Dragon Dogma, Bioshock, Thief, Deus Ex...etc!
