  • Microsoft unveils wired Xbox One controller for Windows PC

    @Diablo13

    Yeah seems odd dragging it out like this I suppose making the adapters may be a delay.

    How long after the 360 launch did the old adapter take to come out? I can't remember.

    There isn't really anything to get excited about it's just MS priming the One pad to replace the good old 360 pad as the official windows controller.

    They are just dragging it out. First the drivers, then a branded windows controller (as we see here), next will be a new wireless adapter and eventually it will become the standard controller replacing 360 one.

    Given where they want to be with Windows 9 it wouldn't surprise me, they've already rebranded solitaire and minesweeper as "xbox" games :)

    It's a bit misleading but to be fair so is the MS faq they linked.

    The "wireless" one will work...if plugged in via a USB cable. The is no way to play wireless on PC yet as we need a new wireless adapter.

    I'd nab a couple as I hear they are good pads but wired is useless for me. Hurry up with a new adapter for wireless MS! Reply +3

    Just buy the game and pass for a few quid next year sometime. The DLC rot is only getting worse, if we boycott crap DLC tactics we might as well go retro and old classics (which is what I do most of the time anyway).

    Besides, these days it makes sense to wait anyway because half of them release their games in complete form down the line, take Arkham Knight, why the hell am I going to buy it and get ripped on DLC when a GOTY will be along?

    There is no real reason to rush out and buy new games other than marketing arses telling you to so just don't bother until it hits a price you find acceptable.

    @muzzakus

    Well I'm only talking GTA here. The logs show back in 2012 they were making the PC version with no reference to the new consoles whatsoever. It looks like they hadn't started them and that would suggest ports with PC being lead. Given the architecture of the new consoles it makes sense.

    @muzzakus

    Leaked dev logs suggest PC was lead platform so there should be no issues like capcoms embarrassing dead rising 3 thankfully. They was working on this version back in 2012 and there is no mention of new consoles development back then, so it is likely next gen is a port the PC. That's why PC got held back to.

    @Darkwaknight

    I think a lot of the problem is PC isn't really tracked, we just do not not know how much it brings in. the PC gaming alliance *snigger* said 20 billion in 2012 (today the gaming market is worth about 40 billion worldwide). Hardware revenue also surpasses consoles to (predicted to be 23 billion by 2017).

    It might not be something some want to hear but to be honest between PC and mobile consoles are really not that big a earner like everyone thinks...which is why only a select few do really well on them and even they put their hands out for bungs to boost revenue.

    Honestly, I'm a multiplatorm gamer (although to be honest I personally see no reason to look at the new ones in the near future) with no fanboy agenda, PCs are much bigger than some realise. Just because GAME or Gamestop don't stock it (no 2nd hand why would they?) it's far bigger than many think....which is why while some internet site commentators may go on about pirates and consoles earning more (not aimed at you BTW) and while some companies may bitch about about pirates (even thought 95% means China!) it's a huge money making market they all want in on. Steam alone has 75 million users. 75 million.

    Delays like this are for a reason but not earning money on the platform is not one of them in reality. Some crash and burn, others don't. As I said it really wouldn't surprise me if a little marketing money swung Rockstar's way to delay a cheaper and superior version with more features. After all MS got some DLC and release parity for just $55 million.

    @Darkwaknight

    No war my friend just find your response funny, it was more sarcasm than aggression. We're cool.

    Those Stats say PC and PS4 are level really although PS is slightly higher. Personally I'd be worried if I was EA and DICE, because those stats say a few PC gamers were not happy with 3. Maybe the COD chase is hurting them on PC? As I said 3 sold more on PC. Also those are players not sales, maybe the well known broken mess of 4 has hurt them to?

    Far more revenue comes from console yet evidence says it doesn't. How does that work for a rational person? Show me more than individual company figures :)

    You actually prove my point, devs can continue selling while console gamers move on and retail put something else on the shelf.

    @Darkwaknight

    Ubisoft? LOL you are trying to use the most hated publisher on the PC (one that's constantly trying to mend bridges to grow on there by the way and only recently promised to do better...again...) as your example? again LOL :)


    Ghosts? Not sure myself on how that did, I know it flopped pretty hard on PC because the player base was pretty low looking at player stats (well it is shit so expected)....they still release 'em though can't do that bad eh?....

    Did BF4 do more on console? Odd BF3 sold more on PC. You got something to back that up?

    Oh and using GTA sales is a bit dumb, apart from the fact we all know the obscen amounts it always makes, like all the GTAs this will sell for years after the console version is dead and buried in 2nd hand hell.

    Look fact is more revenue is coming from PC land, Christ PS4 and Bone users are not even a QUARTER of Steam users. :)

    More than half PC gamers wait for a sale but it's the numbers and the long tail of revenue. I'll re-link the article below in case you missed it. PC is bringing in more than consoles. Sorry.

    Consoles sales burn out in weeks thanks to a short shelf life still chained to retail outlets and on top of their piracy they have a problem (according to some in the industry) far worse than piracy. 2nd hand (my local game shops have all 2nd hand GTA5s not one new).

    I'm not on any high horse, it's a comments page. Commenting the delay is crap, if I'm having to wait even longer now I'll wait a bit more until it's pennies. As I said got no time for this with Witcher 3 not long after anyway.

    I love their games to but I have to be honest Rockstar probably have killed all excitement and eagerness for 5 for me over the last year with this delay being the final nail. Now I am honestly really not bothered about 5. I'll get eventually in a sale. Maybe.

    They kept quiet on next gen for a reason I'm afraid. It's a tactic they use all the time for PC and unluckily console gamers got caught out this time to. This is how Rockstar work you guys just don't see it that often.

    To be honest I was surprised that, I did expect better from such a customer focused company. They gave MS a bit of tat anyway and don't pretend they are not making other versions or delay one platform though. Quite different

    @PSfourskin

    Where did I say that? They do have a crappy attitude though and sell one platform or groups of consoles first until it's dry and move on. *cough* next gen/old gen double dips *cough*.

    I like their games but they have very little concern for their customers in the way they conduct their business. Would not surprise me if a little marketing money held up the PC either, we do know they are money whores from past experience.

    To be honest I'm not that bothered anymore after so long I'll buy for a couple of quid next Christmas, Witcher 3 in feb anyway from a good company.

    You mean like GTA 4 was on the PC.... Oh wait, that was a fucking mess for a good few months.


    So what if it had problems at launch? they were fixed and it pisses on the consoles from a great height even in vanilla form. Trust me I played the console version, not even close. Just like all the GTAs :)

    "That aside, people often overestimate game sales based on a few "AAA" franchises or the odd exception like Minecraft that sell millions (often across 3 platforms or more, mind) and that dominate the news. 99% of games aren't anywhere near that."

    Yeah people never realise that. It's like the game charts and when games sore to number one. People assume it means huge numbers of sales when in reality it could merely be in the thousands.

    A whisper I read ages ago was that the stagnation last gen got them all scared and none of them really wanted to commit titles as they all honestly thought the new consoles would flop so all games were sort of put on hold and that's why practically everything announced has been delayed until next year.

    I don't know if true (internet whispers and all that) but the fact they are all shoving out cross gen or re-release this year does back it up a little.
