    I think if you are primarily a PC gamer who picks up the consoles for exclusives then this article is for you, if however you are a console gamer none of this will make any difference. The Scorpio will be released 4 years after the Xbox One which isn't unheard of for console generations and it will be backwards compatible, that alone is a big advantage over many previous gens. Unfortunately people will agree with this article who are not PC gamers because they have some grudge against the Xbox and/or Microsoft and want to see it go down, my advice would be to ignore them.

    @Travis56 It's the same with the PS4/PSNeo. Gamers will need a PSVR to play VR games and as you know the PSVR costs as much as a console. I think both Sony and MS are looking at VR as being a separate add on to their library and not part of their "nobody will be left behind" mantra behind the Neo and Scorpio. Reply -7

    You say that as someone with some experience in the matter! Frazzl, you're clearly out your depth here and the fact that you managed to Google something to agree with you carries no weight. Whilst a limited definition of hypocrisy may include intent to deceive, it's broader definition has included what we may refer to as unintentional hypocrisy for years. In fact, I've so enjoyed discussing it that I'm going to start researching it further tonight and a write a paper on it. I might suggest you try understanding the meaning of irony; it's embarrassing when you use words you don't understand.
    Intention is crucial to the concept of hypocrisy. The fact that you can't understand that despite providing a definition that supports MY argument is hilarious beyond belief. Yup, your reading comprehension is "top notch" :lol:

    And at the end of the day, whatever I am, you remain a rabid fanboy
    So you refuse to acknowledge that you are a fanboy. :lol:

    Listen... Someone somewhere said a slightly negative thing about Xbox - you better get on it!

    @night_swim Perhaps you should read the article again:

    Irony: Irony may not be intentional it can be a twist of fate.

    Hypocrisy: Hypocrisy is intentional as the individual creates pretense.
    You need intention to be a hypocrite. In other words verynaughtyboy would need to be aware that he is a fanboy. Sadly he has no such awareness. This goes against the very definition of hypocrisy. There is no feigning of virtue here - he honestly believes the shit he's selling. Which makes his accusations of me ironic.

    As for being a dickhead, sure I am. At least I am not a stupid dickhead like yourself or verynaughtyboy :lol:

    Edit: verynaughtyboy can solve this quite easily. If he admits to knowing he's a fanboy all this time then yes I was wrong. He was being a hypocrite with his comments and not being ironic.

    @verynaughtyboy Your reading comprehension truly is not up to snuff. A hypocrite knows they are guilty of whatever it is they accuse others of. Their behaviour is a facade. A pretense. You need awareness of your shortcomings to be a hypocrite. A clueless muppet like yourself is simply being ironic. But hey, it's totally not ironic for a clueless muppet to not understand basic definitions and insist they're right in the face of evidence to the contrary :lol: Reply -14

    @verynaughtyboy You can deny it all you like but the difference between hypocrisy and irony is exactly what I have posted it to be. And in your case irony it is :lol:

    Edit: I suggest you read the definition you provided again:

    feigning to be what one is not or to believe what one does not; especially : the false assumption of an appearance of virtue or religion/
    Feigning is pretense. You are not pretending; you genuinely don't think you are a fanboy. You truly can see your rabid brand loyalty. In which case your behaviour is ironic :lol:

    @Uncompetative The Xbox One S is going to replace the current Xbox One. Much like the PS3 Slim replaced the original phat PS3.

    The Scorpio is a high end alternative to the Xbox One. Much like the Neo is a high end alternative to the PS4 (and whatever the slim version will be called when it is released).

    There is plenty of difference between a console and a PC. However I am not surprised you can't see it.

    As for Crackdown being delayed, I suggest you take a look at Sony titles being delayed. Starting with Last Guardian.

    @verynaughtyboy
    I am a big fan of Sony games. However, I can stand criticism of Sony, whereas you can't of Microsoft. As I said more than once here, the points in this article are valid for both Sony and Microsoft. I can accept that, you can't.
    I am perfectly capable of MS copping criticism. I have criticized them myself with regards to their X1 reveal. That was a shit show. But hey, don't let the truth get in the way of your fanboy bullshit.

    What you are accusing me of is not IRONY, but HYPOCRISY! Do you understand the difference? Clearly not! (I would also dispute any hypocrisy or fanboyism on my part. For the record, I think Xbox is a great brand but that MS have muddied the waters lately with their product and I don't like it. Ditto goes for Sony with the Neo, I don't trust that it won't eventually leave the PS4 behind.)

    Irony - happening in a way contrary to what is expected, and typically causing wry amusement because of this.
    Hypocrisy - behavior in which a person pretends to have higher standards than is the case.
    The difference between the two:

    The difference between irony and hypocrisy is that, in irony, it is a twist of the circumstances, but in hypocrisy, it is not so. It is a pretense.
    You can enlighten yourself further here.

    If you were aware that you are a fanboy yet called me a fanboy so that you could pretend to be superior, yes you would be a hypocrite.

    However as your reply to me which I have quoted here clearly demonstrates, you have zero awareness of how rabid a fanboy you are. There's no pretense here. So yes, irony it is :lol:

    That's ok, I don't take on fanboys and actually expect any logical or meaningful discourse.

    To those whining about the Scorpio being 4K only, here's more information from Giant Bomb (of course not Eurogamer themselves):

    some developers will take advantage of that 6 teraflops in different ways". Microsoft won't force developers to use the extra Scorpio processing power to hit 4K; they're free to use it how they want. That's great. But whereas Microsoft sees Scorpio as the 4K machine, a developer may simply see it as 'more power' for a native 1080p experience

    So, now you can upgrade your Xbox whenever you want, you don't have to wait for the Scorpio in Microsoft's service.
    A Windows 10 PC is not the same as an Xbox console. If you can't see the difference between a console and a PC then you have more important things to do than comment on articles like this.

    @Dappa Another 9Gag gaffer. Sorry to disappoint you and your juvenile web lingo but I am very happy with the announcements of both the Scorpio and Neo. Have been saying this ever since rumours of both were revealed.

    I am a gamer. New platforms on which to game on are a positive for me. You on the other hand are just an idiot. Sucks to be you. Oh and have a smiley on me:

  • frazzl 16/06/2016

    @spekkeh I disagree. As a gamer I am excited by the announcements of the Neo and Scorpio. I love console releases and to me 3 years hits the sweet spot much more than the 8 years we had previously or the 5 to 6 years we had prior.

    Don't forget people are quite willing to upgrade their technology frequently. Most tablets are not bought on mobile plans as most people get wi-fi versions (6 - 10% of iPads are cellular according to the numbers floating around online). Tablets are not particularly cheap either, especially if they are of the Apple variety. Eurogamer have no qualms raving about these incremental updates even if we're looking at sub-annual time frames.

    Anyway we have our opinions. I don't have a problem with yours and I will assume you don't have a problem with mine. The way I see it is now we have an option. Want to wait more than 3 years before you upgrade your console - stick to the PS4/X1. Want to upgrade your console earlier get the Neo/Scorpio. The libraries will be the same. The hardware targets are going to be fixed - there's just a couple more extra SKUs to hit for developers. Surely those with PC development experience who have been designing games for far more fluid hardware requirements will be capable enough to achieve this.

    @verynaughtyboy
    You do know that there are other numbers between 3 and 8, right? I mean, I'm not aware of a rule that says if you don't release a console on 3 years then you have to wait till 8!
    A straw man. I never said or implied that 3 and 8 were the only time lines available. I am simply comparing 3 (the current generation length) and 8 (the previous generation length) and asking why isn't the former better. Particularly when games are tech heavy and tech evolves quickly. Surely you must have heard of Moore's Law.

    I know you claim to not be an M.S. fanboy frazzl but you absolutely are! You clearly cannot handle any criticism of your favored brand and, I'm sorry to say this, but you've embarrassed yourself a bit on here with your hysteria aimed at EG. They're just asking questions (which they also direct at Sony) so just chill out a bit.
    Says the rabid Sony fanboy. Perhaps you should actually read my comments here little buddy before you embarrass yourself with your poor comprehension skills. I am all for the Neo and Scorpio. I think Sony and MS are making a good move giving gamers and OPTION to upgrade their hardware early.

    In addition to improving your reading comprehension I suggest you also improve on your vocabulary. I don't think you really know what the word hysteria means :lol:

    @aharmlesspie
    Is this confusing? It all looks pretty cut and dry to me. Original Xbox One is no longer necessary. Xbox One S is for those with perhaps a limited budget and/or a tv with hdr. Scorpio is for those who want the same games but with higher framerate/resolution. If you don't prefer the simplicity of a console and if you have the money for a powerful PC, then you can play many of the same games with windows 10. The message was clear, why is everyone so confused?
    Exactly!

    No one here is confused. Stanton designed his editorial to be flame bait and the fanboys are flaming away.

    @BlackFlower
    No, 3DS didn't and the Neo won't share all its exclusives with PC, which I believe was @PresidentCupcake's point.
    The new 3DS is an incremental upgrade over the original 3DS. Apart from one game (afaik) and the ability to play SNES titles they share the same library. You also don't know that the X1 and Scorpio will share all their exclusives with the PC. After all there are still exclusives available on the X1 that are not available on the PC (like Halo 5). You are also ignoring the fact that exclusives are becoming quite rare. Both the PS4/Neo and X1/Scorpio libraries will be predominantly multi-platform titles. That's my point.

    No need to be this bitter. It's just an opinion piece.
    I suggest you practice what you preach. This is my opinion and I am entitled to it much like he is to his. And my low opinion of Stanton dates back to his RE6 fiasco - years before this.

    @OnlyJoeKing We don't know if the Scorpio will only run games at 4K. And by the time it is released, end of next year, 4KTVs might have gained more traction. Remember HDTVs were niche back when the 360 and PS3 launched. Reply -18
  • frazzl 16/06/2016

    @spekkeh
    So all good intentions aside, I'm back to where I started. Scorpio will likely be a new console generation, which hurts the Xbox brand more than add consumer choice.
    Definitely a lot of alienating going on on this side.
    Sony just shot themselves in the foot etc. You can just tell the AAA devs will be targeting PS4K because it looks better in marketing, and the normal PS4 owners will be left with unoptimized crap, meaning, might as well have gone PC in the first place. Makes me reconsider Sony in the future.
    Are 3 year generations that short? Do you really want another 8 year generation? Surely a Neo and a Scorpio option, and that's what they are- options, are a good thing for gamers.

    You never wonder about why Nintendo is in the games business - but for Microsoft, it's always been more strategic. Xbox offered up lots of answers and predictions of the future at this E3. But it left me with one big question: why will anyone need an Xbox?
    I think the bigger question is why would anyone need a Rich Stanton editorial. Don't you have a RE review or a Souls advertorial to do? :lol:

    Check the Eurogamer interview with Spencer prior to E3 where he said he's not a fan of an Xbox 1.5. That he would want a more substantial upgrade. Then watch the video of the Scorpio announcement at E3 and pay attention to the wording. It sure doesn't sound like an Xbox 1S. That's a whole different kettle of fish as you well know. Reply 0
  • frazzl 14/06/2016

    Nintendo obviously do consider the new 3DS as a separate console. They have marketed as such.

    It also doesn't sound like Sony or MS consider the Neo or Scorpio to be the same console. In fact MS have even said as much during their Scorpio reveal.

  • frazzl 14/06/2016

    @Mr_Writer85 It is not a different version of the same console. The 2DS and 3DS have the same power. The difference is only a single feature. A more accurate comparison would be between the 3DS and the new 3DS. Most people consider them to be different consoles.

    As for PS4 and PS Neo players playing against each other, you do realize that gamers on the X1, Scorpio and PC will also be able to play against each other. Does that mean the platforms are the same? LOL!
