Loading... hold tight!
That's why we made the decision to drop to 900. That's what we demoed and were showing around E3 time. And Microsoft was just like, 'This is unacceptable. You need to figure out a way to get a better resolution.' So we worked with them directly, they gave us a code update to let us get to full 1080p."
Bungie graphics engineer, Chris Tchou, said in a previous exchange with IGN: "This is the same resolution, the same frame-rate as PS4. We basically got together with Microsoft, and got a bunch of engineers here optimising and taking advantage of the system [Kinect] reserve - basically the extra GPU time that Microsoft gave us, and got it up to 1080p... the beta will run at 900p, so it's a little less. But rest assured by the time we ship we'll have it at 1080."
I feel very condescending but it seems some people actually need to be taught common sense.
So I have brand loyalty because I believe DC is a better looking game, despite agreeing that FH2 is the better actual game overall?
You're giving me a retort about subjectivity yet have predictably ignored cloudskipa's completely subjective comment where he declares every single Xbone exclusive as better looking.
You almost exclusively call out Sony fanboys; unlike you I call both them and MS ones out. I constantly see you bickering with grassyknoll, andrewsquall, mebrains etc who are absolute Sony tools (you can find me calling out grassyknoll in particular in the SFV exclusivity article), yet fail to do so in anywhere near the same level of determination when it comes to to your own favoured console's fanboys. Namely cloudskipa.
Sony is also a regular target for criticism from me in firmware update articles where I constantly call them out for their sloppiness and resting on their laurels in regards to the competition. I also called them out for their bullshit announcement of 1080p60 for Watch Dogs. All is there.
I only own a PS4 and Wii U this gen. I have always been completely transparent about that fact, so naturally you will find me commenting on those two consoles the most. There is zero brand royalty in my life. The PS4 is my first main PS console since the original and the first two Xbox consoles were my main choices over the past decade. But I only joined this site a couple of years ago before deleting my account on the old site I used to visit. There you would have found strong criticism of Sony and people pointing the finger at me as an Xbox fanboy for rarely calling them out. The roles have reversed this gen and I call it as it is. I could care less which faceless corporation's name is on the top of a plastic box sitting under my TV.
The same goes for DriveClub versus Forza and Infamous: SS versus Sunset Overdrive. The Xbone simply cannot stand up to PS4 exclusives graphically.
A blog post from Terry Myerson clears up what "Windows as a service" means, though the duration of "the supported lifetime of the device" is still foggy. "This is more than a one-time upgrade," writes Myerson. "Once a Windows device is upgraded to Windows 10, we will continue to keep it current for the supported lifetime of the device—at no additional charge."
In a Q&A with press following the event, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella clarified that Microsoft's vision for Windows as a service doesn't mean the company is changing its business model for Windows to a plan with an annual fee, or any kind of subscription.
All customers running Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 will be able to upgrade to Windows 10 for free within a one-year period following the operating system's launch later this year. After that period, users will have to pay for the upgrade as they would have with previous versions of Windows. Those who get the upgrade during the free period will have Windows 10 on their device permanently.
Did they ever put any effort in fixing the frame rate? A friend of mine told me that it varies and the tank section in Halo 2 level 2 runs laughably bad.
That was my point when counter arguing MS clearly great developer support. Then again who is to say that a MS studio couldn't do a ND?
There is nothing stopping them, but atm they don't have a studio of that stature.
However we are still to see their first party tools (if they are any different?) bare any fruit.
I didn't say they sold more on PS3 than on 360.
I said that GT sold more than Forza (fact) but even on JUST PS3 the likes of Fifa and COD sell more than GT.
Having a quick look at Google iTunes is estimated to of reached the 25 BILLION songs sold back in 2013.
And I would think you of all people would appreciate that whilst a game might not appeal
to you that doesn't mean it's not a good/great/fantasic/amazing (which ever you pick) game.
Sony's first party developers are all great at what they do but imo they are no better or worse than MS's.
Forza is obviously a great series, but GT blows it away in terms of numbers.
I mean look at the Vita, as a Vita lover I'm sure you will agree in terms of hardware it's amazing and well put together.
1080P and 30fps on x box 1 and PS4. If anything you don't need a misterx to know the x box 1 is more capable console. We are seeing it happen right in front of us every month that passes.
