  • Xbox console sales down as Xbox One S and Scorpio loom

  • Uncompetative 20/07/2016

    XBOX ONE S is just as weak as XBOX ONE. It just does HDR which most TVs don't support. 4K is a waste of pixels at normal couch viewing distances unless you can afford a 98" OLED HDR 4K TV. Scorpio is a nonupgradable PC with no exclusives to justify its existence. Whilst 4K monitors have their place within PC gaming when sat at workstations, the increased pixel density cannot be appreciated when you are more than a tabletop away. Microsoft don't care about sales and would be happy if all their consoles didn't sell. Phil Spencer said this. What they care about is this daft metric of Monthly Active Users which makes some sense for the decoupled usage patterns of social media when a post one day is replied to later that week, this is in no way equivalent to getting enough players together simultaneously for a multiplayer match.

    Scorpio is a joke.

    XBOX ONE S is an even bigger joke.

    XBOX ONE is an old joke that keeps on giving.

    Kinect 2.0 is an unsupported, unbundled, sunset gimmick.

    Oculus Rift will be just as much of a nine day wonder fad, with the PSVR having far superior proper exclusives compared to its shovelware mini games.

    HTC Vive is also of higher quality than PSVR but all that is immaterial as both it and the Rift lack decent software. Sony have sold PS4 and Camera and Move already so all they have to sell to many potential purchasers is a £349 headset. All VR experiences and games shown at Sony's E3 presentation were on PS4.

    @number1024

    "kill some time" doesn't sound like a very good reason, surely you meant to say "unwind" or to "hook up with friends and chat about our day", none of which are possible in the other FPSes as they are too intensely hardcore score based or objective driven.

    About the only exception is the Trial of Osiris, but Destiny makes it onerously difficult to even get into one of those super intense elimination matches and anyone with any sense will just potter around in Control.

  • Uncompetative 05/07/2016

    I'm sorry, but I think this game's rules have been incorrecly reconstructed and there is scope for skill in there as there is no reason to suppose that each player has to throw the total number of sticks each turn and they could strategically decide how many to cast and thereby limit the range of products of random numbers to get their piece to Ground Pound their opponent's.

    FLOPS is an acronmyn standing for Floating Point Operations Per Second.

    Put it all together and you have Project Scorpio suggested to be at a minimum of:

  • Doom 2 Seinfeld mod is totally spongeworthy

  • Uncompetative 22/06/2016

    @Cold_Waste



    Basically, it is a comedy of errors of such clever yet subtle contrivance that by the end you marvel at the episode which builds to that "I am not a pimp!" punchline.

    Taken out of context with the expectation of a "funny" at every turn, you would be somewhat disappointed, but that is the conventional sit com drip feed of wisecracks, set ups and sight gags that litter, say... an episode of Friends... for example, without building to memorable climax and expanding your expectations of what is possible within a comedy episode.

    Also, Seinfeld's stand up at the beginning isn't really meant to be that funny, that is part of the joke, as he is cast in the role of a rather third rate stand up, who eventually gets on a late night talk show after years doing clubs. It is meant to establish his character, more than entertain you, and explain why he won't take anything too seriously (maybe because he wryly sees everything that happens as a potential source of one of his observational jokes, making him something of a passenger in life with only an abstract involvement to it). All other characters orbit this 'void' of a person and as he effectively "tries out material on them" they feign mild amusement out of a weary tolerance. Despite him being a 'funny man', George Costanza is the real source of comic agency (who is based on the show's cowriter Larry David) - e.g. he cheated in 'The Contest'. Then, I'd pick Elaine Benes - e.g. in the episode when she eats a very special cake that she really ought not to have done. Then, George's parents who are so terrible that you pity and understand why George is a failure. Then Cosmo Kramer for sheer zaniness and Newman the evil postman.

    Jumping in mid season won't help. I don't find the Chinese Restaurant episode in the least bit funny, and the Soup Nazi one is overrated.

    However, it is just as clever as Friends was charming and I would urge you to give it another chance.

    I found the whole concept laughable when I played it last night, and then had another good laugh when I was so taken up with taking long shots through my scope that I was very nearly stomped on my my own side's AT-AT.

    I saw this huge articulated foot swing over my head and plant itself right in front of me and I wasn't sure what the hell it could even be until I looked up the whole length of its leg and got a full grasp of the enormity of the beast. Then I laughed a hearty laugh and tried to jump onto the foot to see it it would take me for a ride...

    I think Sony will keep to their leaked specification as it is too late to change it, but will react to their rivals and announce their console's release date as being a fortnight earlier than whenever they say theirs is coming out, whilst trying to undercut it on price. Therefore, I think a 2016 release is unlikely given that they only need to bring it out in advance of Project Scorpio in November 2017, or bring the release forward to next March if NX looks like it will be a threat if it's capable of running multiplatforms without compromise with an articulate controller and no alienating gimmicks. Sony's new console does not need to come out ahead of the release of the XBOX ONE S this August as I don't see them losing any owners of their more powerful PS4 console to this weaker system. Sony even have the option of pulling the same "dirty trick" that they did with the Dreamcast by announcing their rival console so a lot of prospective purchasers of SEGA's system waited to see Sony's alternative latecomer. Systems also have a degree of "lock in" so I wouldn't, for example, trade my PS4 in to buy a Wii U as I have yet to play through all of the 160 digital titles that I have downloaded onto it. Yet, were the PS4K to have a 4TB HDD then I would be tempted to upgrade, even though I will never be getting an enormous 4K TV or starting a collection of 4K UHD Blu rays, because I am running short of free space on my 2TB PS4 and desperately need the room to download more fun stuff. Hopefully, Sony have the good sense to make the PS4K (as I hope it will be called) do 4K Netflix streaming and 4K UHD Blu ray HDMI 2.0 HDR playback for all those who want that kind of thing (basically, so it doesn't look inferior to the S but not because it is strictly necessary) and push developers to update their games to support this minimum of 1080p (I don't mind it if there is some sparing utilization of dynamic horizontal resolution to keep a consistent framerate when things get busy onscreen) and let developers provide us with 60 fps. Also, I'm convinced that it would be unfair to have one sniper playing Battlefield 4 in 4K being able to spot another enemy sniper through their scope whilst this opponent couldn't resolve the detail to see them properly in 900p, whilst I can't see a problem with me continuing to play Destiny on my PS4 at 1080p30 whilst someone on a PS4K runs it at 1080p60 - what advantage does that give them?

    The truth is both of these eighth generation consoles were rushed out a year early as they feared the sequel to the incredibly popular Wii. This seems silly in hindsight given the unpopularity of Nintendo's Flablet controller, but neither company could have anticipated that Nintendo would innovate away from what was almost a total solution to the problem of interaction. We now have VR controllers that build upon the concept of the Wii's twin motion controllers, but support additional buttons to ensure that they are viable replacements for orthodox gamepads. Basically, everyone has cocked things up this generation in slightly different ways: Nintendo through having one weird asymmetrical controller, Sony through failing to deliver 1080p60 in games like Battlefield 4 and DriveClub, Microsoft through alienating their loyal fans with a horrifically anti-consumer presentation of their new console which they then backtracked upon so grudgingly whilst hiding behind a wall of lies (e.g. the Kinect 2.0 was mandatory and couldn't be turned off, until it could, after which it got unbundled having been barely supported) that people still doubt every word that comes out of their mouths (e.g. that Project Scorpio will have no exclusives... yeah, right... I'll give them until 2020 with them sneaking in the back door under the excuse that they are VR exclusives which you wouldn't be able to play on the other XBOXes anyway), and just about every developer is guilty of rushing broken games to market because the safe assumption that all their consumers have a broadband connection means they can get them to patch the bugs as they crop up, effectively making everyone into a generation of unpaid beta testers, many of whom are such sheep that they pay for the privilege.

    If PS4 and ONE had ignored the potential threat from the 'Wii 2' and released in November 2014 then developers would have had more time to get used to these new systems and ensure excellent quality control. Nintendo get criticised for not having much software, but they take their time with every first party title they release to ensure it is free from horrendous face melting glitches, and with the paucity of multiplatform titles coming to the Wii U its rivals needn't have worried about losing market share to a console that appeals to a different audience.

    I'm confused. Maybe you can help me.

    Why would anyone complain that an opponent in a multiplayer game unfairly benefitted from a higher framerate?

    I can see that two Snipers on different XBOX iterations would be unfairly matched if the 1st couldn't make out the 2nd because they were playing at 1080p and the 2nd could see them at 4K quite easily.

  • Microsoft's mixed messages at E3 aren't pretty for Xbox One owners

  • Uncompetative 16/06/2016

    @Pete207

    I think that is true of Sony and Nintendo platforms but increasingly less so with the UI Microsoft push as a unified front end to all of their devices. I don't find their Tiles UI to be particularly consistent or responsive, and even despite comparisons that demonstrate it is quicker for common tasks than PS4, it yields a frustratingly slow response to user input and more significantly lacks automatic background downloads, which means that more often than not every game you want to play needs a large patch (because everything these days is rushed out before it has been properly tested) before you can resume playing it after which your window of opportunity to have some fun has gone and the pressures of real live invade.

    I gave up on the hasssle of Windows PCs when I had a defective Sony VAIO running WIndows 98 which Sony refused to honour the warranty on despite proving my case to them that it had a dodgy USB port that would crash it when I tried to Plug & Play different devices whilst it was on and their Customer Support got me to reinstall the OS a total of thirty times until they wanted £90 to send it back to me unrepaired having ignored the note I attached to their engineer explaining how Linux had baulked on install specifically identifying the fault.

    This obviously cooled me on Sony PCs along with the WIndows OS and got me into the joy of Apple and XBOX 360 ownership, which despite 3 RRODs never annoyed me with an intrusive or sluggish UI.

    However, I had the money for both a PS4 and a ONE and thought I would be 'cutting my nose to spite my face' to only buy one platform for Halo and ignore all the exclusives the other had to offer. Little did I know that my ONE would freeze, crash whilst making multi-coloured sawtooth patterns and a horrendous screeching noise, that I could only remedy by turning it OFF OFF at the wall, or that every AAA they published would be undermined by Microtransactions that allowed you to cheat your way to a hollow victory. Everything about this shambles has been a steady retreat from their original vision of a 1TB discless console:

    1. Microsoft worry that not everyone has a fast Unlimited Broadband connection to abandon physical media and so the opportunity to cut out the "middle man" and reduce retail prices as they won't be eroded by secondhand sales at GameStop is missed and the eighth gen still has the majority of consumers swapping discs.

    2. Microsoft backtracked on their plans to use their patents to monitor audience happiness as they watched adverts on Live TV and ensure that not too many people were in the room as they settled down to watch a Movie, with some mixed messages initially stating that their console had to be Always Online and its Kinect spycam always connected and turned on for everything to work, before they progressively admitted that you could deactivate it in their revised Settings panel, and then unplug it all together, as well as yank the Ethernet cable from the back of the console and still have your single player campaigns work as well as they once did on the 360.

    3. Individually purchasable DLC and cosmetic items are a tolerable supplementary revenue stream which allows AAA games to hide the true cost of inflation, but these blind packs of consumable cheats and fake currencies (that are clearly intended to disassociate you from the true cost of the item / pack at the point of transaction) are an evil scourge especially as much of it acclimates children to mechanics common to gambling whilst side-stepping any proper regulation to only be in PEGI 18 games through a legal loophole.

    4. Microsoft abandon their confusing policies around 'Family Sharing' which only Mormons understood, and copied Sony's rational lend and trade policy rather than their contrived "the disc is merely a convenient installation medium to avoid a substantial download which can only be used to pair the game with one user's account whilst they have an online connection to their C L O U D services."

    5. Microsoft unbundle the Kinect 2.0 having barely supported it with any compelling titles.

    6. Microsoft free up the 11% GPU reservation dedicated to the unreliable interpretation of Kinect 2.0's speech commands and fatiguing arm gestures.

    7. Microsoft shuffle all the Tiles around in their UI just as people were getting used to where things were for a minor performance gain that is undermined by a lack of feedback that has you repeatedly pressing buttons in expectation of some immediate response. Meanwhile 360s continue to be slicker.

    8. Games with Gold eventually gets some AAA titles, but most people already bought them at launch.

    9. Microsoft finally bring Background Music to their XBOX ONE console, it having been a fan favourite on the 360 for many years.

    People didn't want a huge black console with a spycam attached to it? So, next August we will have the opportunity to buy a slim white XBOX ONE S. People whined over the lack of 1080p games, with some having the temerity to want 1920x1080p60 as a minimum standard in all titles regardless of lavish shaders and number of enemies on screen. So, November of next year we will have the opportunity to buy a new XBOX capable of 6 TeraFLOPS.

    Why didn't they make them ONE console?

    Honestly, what idiot is going to buy an XBOX ONE S in the knowledge it will be obsolete within 15 months?

    Clearly, Project Scorpio isn't the XBOX 1.5 but the XBOX 15 months until the next upgrade...

    Thanks for the reply, it's is the first I've had in months as I think everyone else erroneously put me on IGNORE after a mod misread an aside I made on an unrelated topic as being a callous trivialisation of a family tragedy, got everyone in the thread riled up and deleted my "offending" comment, which as luck would have it happened to be the only time I hadn't made my own copy for the purposes of rebuttal or appeal.

    As to today's topic, my summary was intended to convey just how negative Microsoft's presentation came across. They have already stopped manufacturing the excellent XBOX 360 and if they plan to phase out the original XBOX ONE then many people will have to pay more for the benefit of features they won't be able to take advantage of and purchase their own pad as it is no longer bundled.

    I don't have a ginormous 4K TV so both of their new consoles aren't of interest to me. The claim that Project Scorpio can run Halo 5: Guardians without dipping to 1152x810p30 is a laughable example as that game should never have sacrificed split screen to chase after a 60 fps rendering target to suit its uncharacteristic hyper kinetic pace and pander to noobs who had come from playing Advanced Warfare (where the ability to dodge bullets afforded by the addition of the Exo Suits balance that game's much lower Time To Kill). I just find it funny that they couldn't have found a better example of a game that was likely to benefit from Scorpio's hardware that was actually good - i.e. like the aforementioned Advanced Warfare.

    Of course, I can see that those planning to get large 4K TVs next year when they drop in price would be interested in the latest 6 TeraFLOPS XBOX assuming it is not unreasonably priced or stupidly named even if they, like myself, bought a Day ONE at launch back in 2013. However, I can't see who is going to buy an XBOX ONE S with Project Scorpio so close on the horizon.

    I genuinely hadn't thought that there would be a PS4 Slim as a separate entity from the current model which to me seems plenty slim already. Indeed, these mid generational iterations that are usually thought to be MINIs or SLIMs or Ss as in the case of Microsoft's latest offering are often an opportunity to bump the specification. So, I expect the PS4K to effectively be the only new model that Sony come out with, and they may keep the exact same box, but change what components are inside it, and add a blue K to the right hand side in the form of an illuminated LED to go with the strip running across the top.

    I won't be getting a PS4K for the same reasons that I won't be upgrading to an XBOX ONE S or a Project Scorpio, my eyesight is too poor to be able to appreciate the improved pixel density and my existing 42" Panasonic Plasma HD TV has sufficient contrast and responsiveness for me to look down on all but the most recent LED panels.

    Microsoft have eroded the difference between their consoles and gaming PCs that are running Windows 10 and thrown away a perfectly good UI that worked fine on their excellent XBOX 360 console to build something up from scratch for its replacement, that isn't as good or initially as fully featured (e.g. Background Music in games), just to have this inferior Tiles UI for the sake of consistency across their various platforms. The argument that a PC doesn't have the compact form factor to fit under a TV ignores the fact that you can buy long HDMI cables to route signals from elsewhere in the room.

    However, I was surprised that XBOX ONE S wasn't capable of streaming a game that was hosted on your household's office / gaming PC to whatever TV it was connected to, rather like Steam Link or AirPlay connecting an iPad with an Apple TV. If they had done this then there would be a reason for the XBOX ONE S to exist but unless people are yet to buy their first XBOX and haven't the good sense to buy the superior PS4 instead and have no money for Project Scorpio and no inclination to wait any longer to upgrade to the 8.25 generation, then I don't see why anyone would buy ONE.

    It is very confusing.

    I had to go to WIRED to discover that the 4K Blu ray wasn't merely a standard HD Blu ray capable of being upscaled to 4K resolution, as is the case with many cheap 4K Blu ray players, but a true 4K UHD Blu ray component which much cost them a pretty penny to put in their box and therefore accounts for them having unbundled Kinect and the Controller whilst making a new line of coloured ones that cost double the normal amount.

  • Uncompetative 15/06/2016

    After some confusion it has finally been resolved that XBOX ONE S has 4K Blu Ray drive which is very significant as that was the main selling point of the PS4K. Although, weaker and with an inferior line up of exclusives amassing over the course of the next twelve months and with over 40,000,000 PS4s already in the hands of satisfied owners (some of whom will more likely stick with Sony when future consoles are released, in order to take advantage of its backward compatibility with their existing game collections), this will stop the erosion of market share, but probably not reverse it by the time it's successor releases as many fans of the brand who have yet to upgrade from the superior 360 system will skip the 1 and the S and go straight for Project Scorpio even though that will likely be much more expensive than the PS4K.

    XBOX ONE S is the console that MIcrosoft should have released in 2013 to stand a chance against Sony.

    I wish Microsoft the best of luck selling their 6 TeraFLOP console for £599.99 when Sony has already sold everyone their perfectly adequate 4.2 TeraFLOP console a fortnight earlier for a mere £399.99 and how many XBOX ONE S's can Microsoft expect to shift when Sony has saturated the market with over 40,000,000 PS4's?

    XBOX ONE won't sell as it is weaker than PS4
    XBOX ONE S won't sell as it is weaker than PS4
    Project Scorpio won't sell because everyone's already bought a PS4
    Project Scorpio won't sell because those few already bought a PS4K
