  • Microsoft sold 6.6m Xbox consoles in Q4 2014

  • frunk 27/01/2015

    @chuck_bone

    Although I do generally agree with your figures - I don't agree with your final analysis.

    Oh, and it's worth pointing out that while MS as a whole is profitable, each division has to make a profit and justify it's existence. MS cant afford to have a loss making product any more than any other company,
    They are unlikely to tolerate a big loss generator but XB1 will always earn some money due to content. Just no where near the levels of the 360. This will be a disappointment for MS, but not cause them to drop the XB1.

    The division the XB1 is in is making money. Surface lost billions and has now evolved into something pretty good. So yeah - history has shown us that MS will stomach a loss if they think they need to be "in that market". MS want to be living room relevant, so they will stick with the XB1 as it won't haemorrhage money.

    Just glad the PS4 is doing well as Sony need that money and it would have been horrible for them, their employees and gamers worldwide to have collapsed.

    We need these players (Sony, Nintendo & MS) to keep each other on their toes. Without this competition we would still be in the dark ages with online gaming (thanks MS) and we would have to tolerate a corporate vision of non-ownership (thanks Sony).

    Okay - I pre-ordered this game some time ago to support CD Projekt as a company and the way they treat their customers... and have deliberately not got my hopes up about the game itself in case it was a disappointment.

    Thanks for wrecking that line of thinking...

  • Sony finally offers up settlement for 2011 PSN hack

  • frunk 23/01/2015

    Am I right in thinking the only people who probably make good out of this are the lawyers that brought the case?

    Their Welcome Back package seemed to be enough to be honest. And I have had no evidence that my "leaked details" went anywhere or have been used for anything. And I have had my credit card "copied" twice... none of them to do with online retailers. Just wrong country/wrong shop or hotel. It is inconvenient but hardly a calamity.

    if you have the bandwidth

    and Physics bending latency! And QoS that can provide no jitter.

    Bandwidth is very little to do with it... most of us already have plenty of bandwidth already.

    But controls -> device -> "Cloud" -> image render -> device -> screen, all adds up.

    Every day we hear... "Playstation Now is going to destroy the need for consoles"... ahhh.. that is right... we don't. Its a "nice to have" thing which people are only interested in to play old games cheaply.

    @TechMaster360

    This will be handy for us that have a wife and kids who hog the TV
    Then I suggest your first port of call is a new TV... they are surprising cheap! Just got a 40" 4K one at the weekend for £350... madness. Stupid small size for 4K... but it makes a GREAT PC monitor up close and a great "TV" further away - since there is little 4K content just now - this scenario makes a lot of sense.

    And it's far cheaper than even a mid-range gaming PC. Go on spoil yourself!

    Streaming from PC to XB1 does seem cooler however IF latency is close to 0, IF 1080/60 is possible and IF controls are properly implemented so we don't need to reach for a KB/Mouse every 5 mins like on current PC gaming. All those IFs may be difficult to hit.

  • HoloLens is a surreal experience - and full of possibilities

  • frunk 22/01/2015

    Hmmm... seeing lots of useful applications for this tech... but I can't help but feel gaming is not a hugely significant one. The limitations being the control method and the practical integration into your unknown (and quite possibly incompatible) environment.

    VR I think is more gaming orientated, so I guess you can turn out the lights in the room to turn an AR headset into a VR one :) Just need to then invest in more accurate controls... like Move or STEM or something. But once you have done all that you may as well get a VR headset like Morpheus or a Rift as it will be cheaper and have experiences designed from the ground up as VR.

    Nothing here has changed by perception of "VR for games" and "AR for applications"... but I guess MS prefers that strategy despite saying it is not true... like their vision of games: XBox for Games, PC for applications. We rely on other folks like Indies & Valve to keep the PC gaming relevant. The "gaming features" of W10 seems... er... okay... I can't say I am overwhelmed.

  • Microsoft HoloLens is a new AR headset computer

  • frunk 22/01/2015

    Well that looks great... but we will...

    a) have to get over the walking round the office with that thing on
    b) have every piece of software AR/VR enabled... and that will take a LONG time in the Windows world.
    c) hope a pinch tweak to a fuel tank on a bike is enough of your job to matter

    Lovely concept... practicalities will get in the way for a good while yet. Also can't help but feel that video is showing off V2 or V3 of the product... the one where MS says - look it "finally" does the cool things we said it did when you bought the last one.

    Kinda like Kinect. Lets just hope they have not worn out people's enthusiasm before they release a proper one we can get behind.

    MS have a mountain to climb in customer perception, technology and development. But I am glad someone is doing it.

    Does not look totally shit... will give it a go as it looks like it is "free".

    Do like the MS vs Sony PR approach...

    Sony: "Games, games, games" and we will give you some TV
    MS: "TV, TV, TV" and we will give you some games

    The PR spin above has been massively damaging to MS as in reality the quantity and quality of MS's exclusive games offerings have been arguably better than Sony's 1st person stuff.

    Just a pity they pissed away that advantage with dropping all friendliness to Indies with the legendary parity clause. That represents a massive catalogue of genuinely interesting content that Sony is trucking on.

    Just amusing watching this first year pass by... MS really are trying hard to get it right and for every thing they do right, they have another problem which seems to undermine their success. MS have had a total management failure over the last year or two... however you can't fault the hard work of their techies!

  • The evolution of Xbox One - as told by the SDK leak

  • frunk 13/01/2015

    @Edonus

    Er... you totally missed the point in my mail. My exact statement was:

    Let's face it - 90% of the genuinely useful features of the XB1 OS only need a microphone rather than a whole Kinect.
    Exactly what in the XB1 OS does the Kinect do which a microphone can't? All the genuinely useful voice commands make sense. What do you need Kinect for apart from auto-login?

    The PS4 can do voice command stuff with any microphone, not only the array built into the camera... just thought MS may be similar. I don't think it is and a trip to CEX is in the offing... as £150 is stupid money for a Kinect camera.

    As to the rest of your post... well you sound like the rants of a Kinect PR person. All of the stuff you mention was the promise of Kinect 1.0 (which I own). I imagine Kinect 2.0 will be somewhat better but I think your faith in it is somewhat short-sighted as no-one is behind the technology any more except maybe this "new team" in MS you talk of. With MS dropping it being in every box, 3rd parties will shun it.

    Also hate to point it out the PS4 camera pretty well does all that stuff too :) I think the great hope for Kinect may be Sony bundling the PS4 camera with their VR offering and making all those camera features a generation rather than platform specific feature. Then 3rd parties may invest in it's opportunities.

    As a new owner of a Kinectless XB1 - thanks to the loving wife at Christmas, I am liking the sound of:

    USB microphone support is also added into the mix.
    Let's face it - 90% of the genuinely useful features of the XB1 OS only need a microphone rather than a whole Kinect. Also has the advantage that it is easily extendable using USB extenders - which is useful for me in my setup.

    So question... Does a standard USB mic allow you to use the voice control features of a XB1 (like attaching any mic to the PS4 controller)??

    Or is MS holding this feature back to try and keep Kinect relevant?

    Or do we think MS will come out with a cool little (possibly overpriced) mic array to do the non-video Kinect stuff?

    I would like the mic-only option as it is a little less creepy to have a mic rather than full AV being piped via the NSA :)

    Not that I have used the XB1 at all... Kyrat has a hold over me for now, but I did get the TV tuner... so all this voice stuff would be great to have.

    Folks not knowing what this is, can likely Inform themselves with some reading you know... Don't just announce your ignorance on a comment thread. Kinda defines the word "dumb"

    First wiki "light field" and maybe take a look at what light field cameras can do...they are remarkable... We are doing stuff nature does not manage with eyes. And you can buy them in shops for almost reasonable prices.

    Then once you put 2+2 together you can start working out why Magic Leap may be quite a big thing. I can see it manifesting in 2 ways... One table based... One AR based coming later.

    The table one is the table based hologram.. You know, like what Star Wars showed us in '77. Or on a larger scale... a holo-deck. Then if they can miniaturise suitably the tech could be put on glasses to offer AR and put convincing fake objects in your field of view.

    True, but the £100 upgrades are offset by the fact that the rig you install them on doesn't have to cost £1,500.
    True... it costs a lot more than that :) I just got a lovely little gaming laptop a few months ago which is built like a MacBook Pro and it cost a chunk more than £1500 (Razer Blade). Hardware-wise you get what you pay for. Yet next year MS are going to ask me to cough up £100 to keep it gaming relevant.

    So yeah - the OS licence is tied to hardware but the hardware is not an unreasonable price for what you get.

    Especially since the MS updates these days are becoming increasingly incremental. They offer no particular features needed by most users/gamers and we only upgrade because we get a new machine or because MS forces you to by tying DX to Windows versions, entirely falsely.

    MS in money grubbing shits shocker!

    Perhaps they will deliberately block easily ported features to force gamers to upgrade like last time... or the time before...

    It does get tiresome. Upgrading Windows is far too expensive... £100 for every machine, every couple of years if bollox. I don't like Apple, but their £40 for up to 5 machines in the house seems more realistic.

    Not really :) But I was just having a laugh.

    But generally most of the debates you listed are not really acceptable. They are all quite tedious after a while. Embattled fanboys thinking they have a point. There are some basic facts and genuine insight out there, but those tend to get buried under a ton of shit on message forums. Shrug.

    I am surprised at the venom of the feeling on this one... I actually thought the PC crew was a bit more mature, but evidently I was mistaken.

    The plain boring fact is that PC gaming needs console gaming as much as console gaming needs Games on PCs. It is a symbiotic relationship that usually (but not always) works for the better of us all.

    All this "dumbing down" shit is little to do with the platform and all about publishers trying to create games that appeal to a perceived wider audience... Yeah there are sometimes limitations with controls, but that cuts both ways, depending on the type of game. It only becomes a problem when you have "cross control type" competitive gaming. So have the PS4 use KbM but pair them with PC KbM folks. And match-up gamepad players regradless of what they are playing on. It's a developer/publisher choice and sweet FA to do with the platform it is running on.

    If it works of a crappy mobile signal it will pretty well work most places as a single player experience - even those shitty hotel connections I have to deal with. As long as it is not a data-hog and gracefully retries and asks you to reconnect without bouncing you out of the game it will be a liveable experience on the road.

    All those people who can't deal with it... how do you plan on downloading it and keeping the client up to date?

    Their messaging was poor. It went against their stated aim and came late and open to misinterpretation by the "world is ending" crowd. But it is nowhere near as bad a situation as people are making out.

  • Elite: Dangerous ditches planned offline mode

  • frunk 17/11/2014

    @Darren

    I have no interest in playing Elite Dangerous online as the last thing I want is to be attacked by human players when I least expect it. I really hope there is an option to disable human interactions...
    Here I think there is a BIG misunderstanding.

    There is still a "solo mode" where you can't be attacked by other players. Always has been. Always will.

    In the last news update it said it does not need to be online all the time, but it does need to check in - which means...

    It just has to log into the Elite servers to give you the "living universe". i.e. the impacts players have to the economy, the naming and claiming of planets, the spread of human space.

    Which I think is fair enough. If you want to explore new worlds - you do have to "get out there". You are in a race with others. But since there are 400 billion stars it will be easy enough to find some unexplored space. And getting to that unexplored space will be easier as you will be able to use other player's infrastructure they have left behind.

    You don't need to actually interact with other players - but you will see their impact on the wider universe however.

    To me this kinda seems a reasonable (and realistic) compromise. What I don't understand is what level of connection is needed. We need it at login. But how well does it work with a crappy connection? How much "check in" does it need? It may well work fine on a crap Internet connection if it only requires a few K of data on each system jump... just a stutter as you arrive.

    I can see why some folks are upset, but I can also see why it would be difficult to make a totally off-line mode as everything the server's do would have to be done on your own PC. But they should have been a bit more up front about this - and delivered the message sooner.

    @welsh_will

    100Hz/120Hz/240Hz are not real frequencies. They are internally generated inside the TV and are not supported by the cable running from PS4 to TV. HDMI 2.0 may be able to hack it... and maybe HDMI 1.4... BUT these high refresh rates have ever really been standardised by manufacturers.

    However I do believe 50Hz is an option for everyone.

    EDIT: Actually I may be wrong. Apparently is is possible to "overclock" some makes and models of TV... Good luck and good luck with your warranty... http://www.blurbusters.com/overclock/120hz-pc-to-tv/ :)

    Surely all HD TV's using HDMI have 25/30/50/60 Hz options (24Hz too for some). But I do believe the HDMI standard says to support these main 4.

    So why not... SHOCK... if they can't hit 60Hz... aim for a locked 50Hz? It seems a small step down that could fill a middle ground that keeps everyone happy?!

  • The games that have defined PS4 and Xbox One

  • frunk 13/11/2014

    @cloudskipa

    So I don't think you've quite properly thought out your argument.
    For one of my arguments it is pretty poorly thought out. Granted. :)

    Yes I agree supporting your console for 10 years plus is great... after the original XBox this is a very positive behaviour from MS.

    But I will still hold to the fact that writing a game for current hardware and last gen hardware limits the scope of what you can do in the game. It is the same as PC's. All those extra horsepower under the hood make the game prettier, but not necessarily any better as the core game-play systems have to be able to run on the majority of machines and not limit your potential audience, to get the numbers up.

    You can use all that extra physics power to make cloth fall better, but not to change the behaviour of anything in the game that could directly affect the player. Otherwise it is a different game.

    I did not realise FH2 were totally different games as far as features are concerned. So yes, there is perhaps a middle ground where the 360 won't gimp the scope of XB1 games.

    Your list of games that did not receive 360 ports is irrelevant to the discussion. They may or may not be good games, but they have apparently not "Defined the XBox One".

    I was just commenting that only one of those games on that list actually required you to have an XBox One. Maybe the list if broken.

  • frunk 10/11/2014

    So am I right in thinking that APART from Sunset Overdrive you can play all those on a PS4 & 360 combo?

    MS seems to be scared from jettisoning the previous generation. One of the reasons I am not particularly worried of the exclusivity of the Tomb Raider game as it can't re-write the rulebook as it still has to run on 10 year old hardware.

    I guess MS are caught between a rock and a hard place where they can't really afford to ditch the 360 until they have got a similar level of success with the XB1. But if they don't, then the 360 will remain as an anchor to the true capability of the XB1.

    Whereas Sony can afford to throw everything into the PS4 as it has more potential for them.

    Gonna be an interesting generation... they all are, TBH!

  • Xbox One has sold in almost 10m units to retailers

  • frunk 13/11/2014

    @lancashirered

    To be fair retailers aren't stupid; it must be selling well. It's not like they're forced to buy stock by MS. Good news for everyone.
    True... retailers aren't stupid; so when they get offered a "temporary discount" of $50 per unit - wouldn't you stock up NOW to take advantage of this and warehouse them?

    So is this stock being sold now or being stockpiled for Xmas? That is the question they have not answered with this type "announcement".

    Smoke and mirrors as usual.

    Real sold through figures are the only measure that counts and give us an indication whether they have turned a corner. MS have had some cracking games come out over the last few weeks, so this is their big chance to change perception. If the PS4 still outsells the XB1 this month then the system is in genuine trouble.

    I don't think this will be the case. MS should be able to beat PS4 this month... perhaps next. Then in the new year the PS4 will edge into the lead again, but the margin will be diminished as hopefully the "friends effect" kicks in for MS.

    Great Review.

    I do think 2 is a little harsh - my experience was a little better - I managed to get over 100 tracks from my PS3 version over to the PS4... but it was painful. At least they made the effort to get content on the previous gen over to the new one. I seem to have managed to get 60% or so shifted over... a sad confirmation of too much late-night drunken purchasing.

    So I reckon Ellie was just a bit unlucky with the store having issues. But the store should not be experiencing issues.

    I still would not score it above a 5 however as the "game" element is disappearing to just be a boring karaoke jukebox. No party mode, nothing to encourage you to sing a song you would rather not sing, no names... nothin' Just videos and words chosen off a list.

    New versions are meant to add features, not remove them.

    Since having Witcher 2 means you get Witcher 3 cheaper, they really are being too generous!

    As usual!

    I think Microsoft need to re-evaluate their "Infinite Power of the Cloud"... you know... by looking up the word "Infinite" :)

    I jest! Good to see the "pro's" can f'up too... not just Sony :)

    Reasons to finally buy an XBox One now stacking up!

    Keep up this momentum, MS. Good games and OS updates are turning the tide.

    Not much more needed to tip the balance... perhaps a second genuine price drop rather than a faked one by taking out Kinect. An extension cable for Kinect so it can be used in my set-up. And a glimmer of some new and interesting IP on the horizon. These retreads are fine, but new is better! :)
