    @Gemini42 To be honest I would have agreed with you right up to last year. With all the online craziness, not just with fanboys, but gamergate too, I really have been put off by gamers in general. Like you I love playing games. I am however not sure how comfortable I am sharing my hobby with people who are members of the two aforementioned groups.

    their hobby is less enjoyable because of their 'brand loyalty fanboyism' in that they spend more & more of their time 'preaching to the enemy' rather actually sitting down with a good game, whether alone or with friends, and having a good time.
    This I agree with 100% :).

    @Gemini42 Fanboyism destroys any sense of community (remember gaming is a social hobby) and I wouldn't be surprised, given how susceptible people are to the "hive mind" mentality, that it hurts sales too.

    Edit: I thought I'd put this definition of hive mind/groupthink as it sums things up nicely:

    Groupthink is a psychological phenomenon that occurs within a group of people, in which the desire for harmony or conformity in the group results in an irrational or dysfunctional decision-making outcome. Group members try to minimize conflict and reach a consensus decision without critical evaluation of alternative viewpoints, by actively suppressing dissenting viewpoints, and by isolating themselves from outside influences.
    The emphasis is mine of course.

    I love my XB1, but also enjoy my PS4 and Wii U as well. I just prefer my XB1 but that's my choice. I don't see why some snotty nosed adult should troll these forums instead of having a mature conversation. I like this site for the news but these forums are a joke. I don't slag off my mates who drive a different car or like different food. It's pathetic. We should all want all the consoles to do well as that's the future of our hobby.
    Well said! +1 for you. People should be pleased that the PS4 is selling so well, that the X1 is putting in decent numbers (better than the 360 at this point in its lifecycle) and that the Wii U, despite lackluster sales, has a stellar upcoming line up. Gamers who prioritize brands over actual games (and you can see quite a few of them here) are idiots that do our hobby a huge disservice.

    @cloudskipa Exactly. And assuming it's not available on a Mac or a machine running Linux, then it is still a MS exclusive. No surprise IronSoldier didn't give his usual song and dance when the PS4 "lost its exclusive" Resogun when it was released on the Vita ;). Reply -3

    ep, developers like to make exclusives for the less sold console. :lol:

    Anyway, i won't continue to discuss with you. I can't discuss anymore with a guy thinking a 20$ 2D multi-platform game can compete with a Sony AAA exclusive from a technical perspective. ;)
    So that's what you call evidence? LMAO! So you don't know:

    2) Fact and opinion.
    3) What evidence is.

    But MP is NOT upscaled, just Guerilla used different technique for full 1080p, isn't it. :D Of course, DF didn't explained which technique is that cuz they didn't knew which is. Oh yes, DF noticed "strange" res a few months after launch.
    Guerilla themselves stated that it was not full HD. So you are wrong. Again. It's a laugh that you think you know more than DF and the develpers themselves.

    FROM is developer, Studio Japan IS developer, NOT a publisher. Studio Japan co-developed with From! Do you know what is co-development??

    SCEI, SCEA, SCEAustraila, SCEE ARE THE PUBLISHERS ( depends which region ).
    You really are stupid. Okay here's the deal:
    FROM = developer
    Japan Studio = publisher
    SCE = distributor

    Muppet :cool:

    Antropie asked you about more examples. You didn't answer. So, you have nada!
    I gave plenty of examples and his response is to shift goal posts. Why? Because he has nothing. Like you :lol:

    You have bunch of examples from PS2 generation. Developers just decide to bring exclusives to PS2 because install base.

    Anyway, i'm done here.

    And don't forget developers will naturally go towards Sony for a simple reason : http://www.ibtimes.com/ps4-vs-xbox-one-sony-sells-more-202-million-consoles-worldwide-1835732

    In most situations, Sony doesn't have to pay anything : developers simply choose the most sold console... as simple as that...
    Can you prove Sony has not paid for all these titles? Can you prove MS has paid for all these titles. Again you have nada :)

    Truely agree, that's why we can't say Killzone is technically more impressive than Mario Kart on GBA.

    It's just a subjective opinion : http://otrapartida.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/mario-kart-advance.jpg

    Moreover, you need a very strong hardware to run Ori on PC.
    So what metric are you using? The fact that you still can't define one says it all. Weak :D

    The game is also developed by Japan Studio. FROM may be the main developer, but they are still not alone :
    FROM are the developers. Japan Studio are the publishers. You do know the difference between a developer and a publisher right? I guess not. LMAO!!

    @imt558 From the DF analysis:

    Of course by "well-respected video game site" they mean Eurogamer, of course, whose tech experts at Digital Foundry noted that "Killzone Shadow Fall's multiplayer runs at 960x1080 with a high quality temporal upscale." Our Richard Leadbetter described such as process as using "information from previously rendered frames is used to plug the gaps."
    960X1080 is half the number of pixels in a native 1920X1080 image.

  • frazzl 26/04/2015

    @Antropie Actually Blood Borne is developed by FROM and they are definitely not owned by Sony. Sony commissioned them to make Blood Borne. So yes in fact they have funded it as an exclusive.

    Then of course you have Helldivers. Made by a privately owned Swedish company Arrowhead Games. Yet another Sony example to go along with the list we've compiled. Do I really need to go on?

    @imt558 You really are dumb. No KZ:SF multiplayer is not native 1080p. As admitted by the developer:

    "In Multiplayer mode, however, we use a technique called 'temporal reprojection,' which combines pixels and motion vectors from multiple lower-resolution frames to reconstruct a full 1080p image. If native means that every part of the pipeline is 1080p then this technique is not native.
    Just because the image is not upscaled does not mean it's a native 1080p image.

    Good for you. From a technical perspective, it's objectively false and you know it.

    Now, you can say you prefer Ori graphics and i have no problem with that.
    No it is not. What metric are you using to objectively define superiority? Let me answer that for you? Your own very biased opinion!

    It's a racing game.

    - "You will never have a game as impressive as Killzone at 1080p on Xbox One. What's the most impressive 1080p FPS/TPS on that console ? Destiny ? GTA5 ? LOL..."
    Destiny is more impressive than Killzone Shadow Fall. Why? Because Killzone Shadow Fall is a mediocre game :).

    I don't care about your opinion, it's a 900p game. ;-)
    And you think I care about your opinion? When you are a fanboy muppet with a sub-100 IQ? :cool:

    They bought much less exclusives than Microsoft... also, it must be much more expensive when you have to buy an exclusive for a console which is severely dominated in sales.
    They have funded less exclusives than MS ? Really? Where did you get this little factoid from? ;)

    Give me a single game as impressive as Killzone at 1080p on Xbox One... Sniper Elite ? LOL...
    So we're back to opinions. I think Ori looks more impressive than Shadow Fall. It's definitely a much better game. I think Forza Horizon 2 looks better than Shadow Fall. Hell I can name 900p games that look more impressive like Sunset Overdrive. Tis a better game too :).

    I don't care. See the DF analysis on Ryse : the game has a horrible framerate...

    It's a fact...
    So you don't know what an opinion is. The adjective "horrible" that you have used is a product of your opinion. Subjective. You don't care because 1) You're a fanboy and 2) ignorance is bliss :cool:

    One BIG difference : MKX IS UPSCALED (on Xbone), Killzone SF multiplayer is NOT. Get it? Good!
    Neither game sports a native 1080p image. Get it? Good!

    Sony DIDN'T bought SFV as an exclusive. They fund the development cause Capcom asked them for help. Anyway, it will be released for PC also.
    They are funding development. That's what I meant. It contradicts the rubbish Antropie posted.

    Once again, the PS3 showed its power on exclusive titles at least. Even DF said the most impressives games were on PS3.

    If i have a good memory, the only game which can be compared to the most impressive PS3 exclusives is Halo 4.

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-vs-halo-4 : "In an era where the likes of Naughty Dog and Sony Santa Monica have defined the graphical state-of-the-art with Uncharted and God of War, Xbox 360 finally has its own shot at the title"

    And you had to wait the end of the gen to see that... while the 360 was much easier to develop for than the PS3...

    On this gen, the Xbox One is completely crushed on both sides (from a technical standpoint) : multi-platform games and PS4 exclusives.
    LOL. Opinion vs. Fact. You really need to learn to distinguish between the two you muppet :D

    Moreover, Sony doesn't have as much money as Microsoft, so you should not be suprised to see unfinished games on that console. See what happened with DC... i'm not syaing DC isn't impressive, i'm talking about its many launch problems.

    Knack isn't a AAA and Sony can't put a lot of money in all its games.
    They had enough money to buy SFV as an exclusive :).

    However, i'm really surprised you dare to mention Killzone as this game is more impressive than anything you can find on Xbox One...
    Having difficulty differentiating opinion from fact? :cool:

    If we speak about the solo mode, it's 1080p + a framerate higher than 30fps. Compare that to Ryse, a 900p corridor game with a horrible framerate...
    Having completed Shadow Fall, I can assure you that it too restricts the players movements to a small levels, especially in the latter part of the game. As for frame-rate, I had no problems with frame-rate in either Shadow Fall or Ryse in single player. The stutter in Shadow Fall multi-player however....

    You will never have a game as impressive as Killzone at 1080p on Xbox One. What's the most impressive 1080p FPS/TPS on that console ? Destiny ? GTA5 ? LOL...
    The question you should be asking is what FPS titles is not better than Killzone. Even Destiny, which is hardly stellar, is a far better game than Shadow Fall. Wolfenstein....well that's in a completely different league :D

    It's a fact : Wipeout HD, GT5/6, Ridge Racer 7 = all of them were over 720p on PS3. Racing games tend to put less much constraints on hardware.
    Depends on the racing game. Otherwise games like FH2, The Crew, NFS and DC would be running at 1080p 60fps ;)

    Xbox One can easily reach 1080p on unimpressive games such as remasters or cross-gen titles.

    Give me only one 1080p Xbox One game wich is not a remaster, cross-gen game or racing game ? You don't have any...
    Powerstar Golf is not a cross-gen title. It's not a racing game. Ditto with Kinect Sports Rivals. Ditto with Lara Croft: Temple of Osiris. All three are rendered in 1080p. So how are you going to shift your goal posts next ;)

    We don't even have to speak about PS4 exclusives since impressive multi-platform games running at 1080p on PS4 are technically more impressive than anything you have on Xbox One : Witcher 3, Shadow of Mordor, Dragon Age, COD AW, etc.
    Confusing your opinion with fact again ;)

    First of all, do some research before spreading bullshit. Killzone SF in multiplayer technically is 1080p. IQ is NOT upscaled. What is Temporal Reprojectio
    Just like MKX on the X1 is "technically 1080p". The fact remains that both titles don't render all 1920X1080 pixels every frame, only part of it. The remainder of the pixels are generated algorithmically, either during the upscale process or my sampling pixels from previous frames.

    Probably you know better, right? You know shit. It's obviously that you're Xbone fan and you call yourself a gamer, but you shit on everyone and call them a fanboy or muppet who said something inappropriate for your Xbone. At least you discovered who you really are.

    You mean very unimpressive games ? Moreover, higher resolutions have always been easier to reach on racing games. That's why i gave you Virtua Figther as example. What about KI ? 720p and then 900 ? 900p just like MKX... LOL...
    There are plenty of unimpressive games on the PS4. Like Knack. Or Killzone Shadowfall (which by the way only renders half the pixels of a 1080p image during multi-player).

    Fine, R1 was a launch title. Thanks to make my point.
    As are the titles I have listed for the X1 that are rendered 1080p native. A concept you are still struggling with, in the face of facts.

    Apart from racing-games, there isn't any single AAA Xbox One exclusive running in 1080p...
    Shifting goal posts I see. First it was hardly any 1080p X1 games. Then it was hardly any 1080p X1 exclusives and now it is hardly any 1080p X1 AAA exclusives. Your muppetry is tres amusing :D

    You should care as the very article you post to support your spurious claims actually supports mine. It just goes to show how stupid you are.

    But you're right about one thing: multi-platform titles will usually be better on the PS4 for the rest of this generation. That's a given. That was exactly the case last-generation with the 360. I don't have a problem with this. You on the other hand are having a hard time accepting the PS3's limitations. Strange that :).

  • frazzl 28/04/2015

    @Gizmopop
    The 360 wasn't exactly reasonably priced when it came out either, I recalled forking out $500+ for the console and a few games, and that was the original 360 with a 20GB hard drive. Yes you could get the core model(no hard drive) @$300 but with a few games, extra controller you were in the $400 range easily.
    Sure it was not cheap. I bought mine while I was overseas and I had to pay an additional markup...:(. The thing is relative to the PS3 it was significantly cheaper: USD299 - 399 for the two 360 SKUs versus USD499 - 599 for the two PS3 SKUs. So we're looking at a difference of anywhere between USD100 - 300 depending on which models you're comparing.

    I don't know that Sony ignored the facets of the PS2, to me it seems like they tried to make good on the promises they made with it. PS2 promised a lot of functionality with the hard drive that never came to fruition, in the end only Final Fantasy online made significant use of it. Ps3 learned the lesson from the OG Xbox and included a hard drive from the get go. PS3 also followed PS2 which was the first console with a DVD player, by being the first console with Bluray.
    The problem was people did not really want or need a Blu-Ray drive. I am positive given a choice between USD100 saving or a Blu-Ray drive people would have chosen the former. You have to remember that Blu-Ray uptake was (and still is) slow. Even today DVD sales are greater than Blu-Ray sales. It's not been the massive success of a format the movie industry has been hoping for.

    While MS stumbled with the One's reveal, I would not call it's sales poor, it is out pacing the 360(which launched by itself and has sold 84 million+). Ps3 overcame its sales problems and has since sold 85 million+ units...(ie, it's ahead of the 360 despite being around for less time).

    The problem for the One is that the PS4 is doing even better.
    I think you are forgetting just what position Sony was in with the PS2. Not only were they at the top, they completely dominated the videogame sales market. The PS3 has done well, sales-wise, but in comparison to the PS2 it was a massive flop for Sony. I don't think we'll see that kind of dominance this generation either despite the PS4 selling so strongly.

    I am not impartial either. Having a preference is not an issue. Labeling a console shit however is not the same thing. Surely you can see that? Right?

    The thing about the Xbox One is it's demonstrably less capable than the PS4. I just don't think it actually has any selling points.
    I don't have a problem with that. It's your opinion. I didn't get a PS4 at launch because none of the launch titles interested me. I got the PS4 a few weeks before Infamous 3 was released because that was the only PS4 game I wanted to play.

    So an Xbox One is way, way down on my list of things to buy right now. Way below a gaming PC.
    Again, I don't have a problem with that. Your money, your priorities. I have all the consoles because I am a console gamer. Not really interested in PC gaming so I don't see myself getting a gaming PC soon. Eventually maybe, but not just yet.

    yeaaaaaah but the elephant in the room that you are ignoring is that the PS3 was actually quite a capable games machine (powerful but complex) and a multimedia powerhouse. Whereas the Xbox One is just shit - worse than the PS4 in every respect.
    Yes the PS3 was a capable machine. And yes it was capable at multimedia. It was not however more capable than the 360 as a games machine as the majority of games will show. The same is true of the X1. It's a capable games machine and, with all the updates, a multimedia "powerhouse". It's definitely better than the PS4 as a multimedia machine based on the last DF analysis, but it is not as powerful as the PS4 in terms of gaming.

    And if you think the X1 is just shit, well I guess it goes to show just how strong your brand loyalty really is. That's not my issue, just yours ;).

    you can argue all you like to dismiss metacritic but what otherstatistical sample is there?
    Easy. There is none.

    All you are doing is proving that there is no reliable , quantifiable measure of a games worthiness.
    This sentence, taken in isolation, is the only sensible thing you've said thus far.

    The point was that people keep pointing to a particular subset of games on a platform and claiming they are objectively better than another platform and when wxamined, their argument falls apart. when pressed, they admit it is subjective, but then they have to concewe'd that the other platforms also can have better games for other people abd their entire argument falls apart!
    People who think their opinions are objective are either idiots or fanboys. Opinion is subjective. It doesn't matter if the opinion is from a professional reviewer or an anonymous Metacritic user. Both subjective and of limited worth.

    Which is fair enough, if they relate specifically to you, but your also dismissing Metacritic..which is an aggregate of many opinions.

    I used it simply because it represents a quantifiable figure that proves a point, rather than using my own opinion - which is far less relatable to the general population.
    An aggregate of many opinions is still an opinion.

    Also, statistically speaking, there is a very good likelihood that the Metacritic reviews are not representative of general gamer opinion. 1) They're not randomly sampled. 2) They're specifically drawn from a particular subset of the population (professional reviewers). So if anything they may be less "relatable to the general population".

    @grassyknoll The same reason the 360 outsold the PS3 in the US and UK back in 2007 and 2008. Cheaper price. Better performing multi-platform titles. Not saddled with a history of bad press.

    I have never argued that the PS4 is not outselling the X1. All I have stated, which you repeatedly choose to ignore, is that there are strong parallels between the PS3's launch and the X1's launch.

    @frazzl Being an underpowered, overpriced pile of poo has hampered the One - Sony recovered and were able to overtake Xbox 360 sales over the lifetime but I just cannot see the One surpassing the PS4
    Underpowered and overpriced are two adjectives you could easily use to describe the PS3. As for what will happen this generation, I am going to hazard a guess that your conclusion is simply your fanboyism talking and not some sort of Nostradamus styled prognostication :cool:

    @frazzl You are a moron if you think MS is any better than Sony,maybe financially sure a shit load better but morals are just the same if not worse.
    The only moron here is you buddy. Read my posts again. It is quite clear I meant that MS are far better of financially than Sony.

    As for morals, only a fanboy muppet would paint one console manufacturer as "good" and one as "evil". And you most certainly are a fanboy muppet.

    Back when the PS3 launched it was one of the better bluray players in a market where the prices ranged initially from $500 to $1000. $500-600 for a high end Bluray player and latest game console wasn't a bad deal.
    It was a bad deal for gamers who wanted a reasonably priced game console and were not interested in a media player. Like myself. Which is why the PS3 is one of the few consoles I own that I didn't buy during its launch window.

    Xbox One being US/centric has hindered it's global market penetration compared to the PS4.
    MS went out of its way to make the 360 attractive to the global market. Apart from the UK, that really didn't work so well. The X1 is seeing a continuation of this trend.

    Xbox 360 launched a full year ahead of PS3 and launched alone. PS3 launched within a week of Wii.
    The Xbox One and PS4 launched within weeks of each other.
    I am not claiming that the PS3 and X1 scenarios are identical. But there definitely are very similar.

    MS and Sony fucked up their respective console reveals. Both companies ignore the facets of their previous consoles that were successful and instead focused on a media driven machine. Both Sony and MS received heaps of scorn from gamers and the press alike. Both Sony and MS faced poor sales for the first few years of their console's release. Both Sony and MS had to drop the price of their consoles and implement drastic changes to their policy.

    @IronSoldier How am I shifting goal posts? I was in fact replying to your erroneous statement to another poster here that, btw, had nothing to do with MS. It's a fact that home console manufacturers have had trouble following up on successful consoles that is NOT their first entry into the console market. Look at Nintendo with the N64. Sega with the Saturn. Sony with the PS3. MS with the X1. So where exactly is this "pro-Microsoft agenda"? Reply -7
