  • Xbox console sales down as Xbox One S and Scorpio loom

  • niteninja 20/07/2016

    @dogmanstaruk Yeah they did but they also funded last of us,until dawn,bloodborne.detroit become human,horizon and last guardian theres no doubt that sony take way more risks in their first party games. Reply +10

    The xbox division is a shell of what it used to be remember the 360 era when they had hardcore gamers in charge like jay allard that was microsoft on fire building xbox live into a major force securing exclusives building ip like gears of war.
    Today the company is a total mess sinking billions into kinect which nobody wanted losing the cod brand to playstation because activation wasn't happy with one sales, Phil Spensor took over a sinking ship and a damaged brand that lost millions of 360 owners to playstation.
    Sony progressed its first party developers to be the best in the world microsoft ran out of ideas and churned endless forza and halo sequels out.
    Honestly don't see how scorpio will change anything when its release is 12 months after neo.

  • Epic boss is thrilled at the prospect of PlayStation Neo and Xbox Scorpio

  • niteninja 07/07/2016

    I just don't see how scorpio will help microsoft anyway, microsoft are losing in every region and outside of america and the uk the xbox brand is dead in the water everywhere else in the world, the playstation brand has worldwide appeal and insane amounts of momentum and I just don't see scorpio changing anything at all.
    PC gaming isn't as big as people think it theres very few pc exclusives these days that are nose bleed cutting edge like star citizen.

    You got 40 million ps4s sold and 20 million xbox ones, so microsoft and sony have to find a way to get people to upgrade while at the same time reassuring people who can't afford to upgrade that the old consoles are still being supported.
    Console players are not pc gamers who are used to shelling out hundreds of pounds every few years and I can see both neo and scorpio crashing hard.
    Its simply not going to work without major backlash from people who have the old consoles.

    A lot of developers Ive spoken to don't want new consoles, the publishers are like yay more power while a lot of developers are pissed off about it.
    Development costs are going to increase, optimising games to run on base consoles while pushing more polygons on higher spec machines is going to cause many headaches for game makers and its going to fracture the user base of console players between high end and low end its a complete mess.

  • Microsoft shifts one million of those 129 Xbox One Elite controllers

  • niteninja 29/06/2016

    It is a great controller but you got to love microsofts p.r bullshit, they changed sold to shipped on everything to hide the fact that the xbox one has been a flop elite controllers sales are probably around half that. Reply -16

    All this VR stuff reminds me of when HDTVs first hit the market back in 2005 ish, I paid 1300 quid for a 720p pioneer plasma today you can pick up 4k tvs for 800 ish.
    Point is new gear high price gets a lot cheaper over time.

  • GAME blames low last-gen sales for pre-Christmas slump

  • niteninja 23/12/2015

    The biggest mistake game ever made was killing gamestation off.
    Gamestation had a massive customer base, sure it was chavvy and they made no secret about it hell even the posters for gamestation were like graffiti art but it worked and the staff were encouraged to be mates with customers.
    Then game came along and started to man in the suit everything and corporate took over they expected the customer base that gamestation had to stick around and they didn't.

    @riceNpea not going to lie did stink of shit, but it didn't stop hundreds of people turning out for game station midnight launches and instore tourneys that they used to have.
    People used to really like shopping at game station.
    They ran those shops really casually and customers loved it.

    Operating a business on the high street is not that hard, you need a forward thinking boss,a youth club atmosphere like game station used to have, instore demos and to treat your customers like your best mates.

    Thats all it takes.

    The truth is simple, pressure selling on customers for warrantys on the high street doesn't work in 2015 yet they still push it hard.
    Plus terrible customer service I mean look at this.

  • Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X review

  • niteninja 18/03/2015

    The thing I don't get about pc gaming is this, sure frame rates,resolution and textures are better than consoles, but how many TRUE nose bleed pc games are there out there these days.
    That titan card you spend 1k on has how many games that really show what it can do, maybe Witcher 3 this year and Star citizen next year, considering that half the games released on steam these days look like mega drive games I really don't see the point at all.

    This could be utterly massive, respawns new game, new mass effect and dragon age 3 all durango exclusive.
    From what im hearing its a lot more important than just dlc.
    This is a deal for exclusive ea published games including unrevealed crytek games.
    MS has at least 10 first party games in development for durango most of them are new ip.

  • Next-gen Xbox specs leak

  • niteninja 22/01/2013

    Looking at that VGleaks diagram again, I think they fucked up some f the custom hardware stuff. Specifically, there's a hardware block that they don't describe, pertaining to... well. I don't want to get anybody in trouble.

  • niteninja 22/01/2013

    I'm just looking at the block diagram and how much silicon Microsoft is dedicating to that and the memory movers (and the audio DSP), all of which is custom to the system and expensive, and wondering why that, instead of more space dedicated to more GPU resources. They're telling developers it brings a number of advantages and frees them up to do "things," which I don't understand in an appreciable way. They spend a lot of time in their documentation talking about them.

    Let me see if this helps. For Durango:

    Rendering into ESRAM: Yes.
    Rendering into DRAM: Yes.
    Texturing from ESRAM: Yes.
    Texturing from DRAM: Yes.
    Resolving into ESRAM: Yes.
    Resolving into DRAM: Yes.

    For the 360, that would be yes, no, no, yes, no, yes.

  • niteninja 22/01/2013

    I believe these are accurate, though, again, the extra hardware they don't explain will play a major part in what Durango does. I've also heard from reliable sources that the GPU CUs are super-efficient, with an aim for almost 100 percent usage at all times. The 360 hit around 60 percent, I understand. Like I've said previously, context is going to be really important for both systems.

    source 1

    The entire setup reeks of some kind of new tile based/deferred rendering approach along the lines of what makes the PowerVR GPUs so very efficient.

    It would also be very scalable (integrated into a PC GPU card, it would basically push crossfire scaling to 100% and solve any micro stuttering issues). It would be the end of huge monolithic GPU chips as we know them.

    source 2

    Right now were talking...a new approach that throws out traditional pc comparison measurements in pure flops/mm2..etc...really interested in this...

    The games will be on some kind of ssdd card, if those things are going to be sold at retail or if its just the one that comes bundled with the console is not known.
    Either way you have to swipe it to unlock and download the game.

    all the info points towards digital according to my source (no names) the new xbox will include kinect 2 built into the console.
    What happens is you will buy your game over live and swipe a digital card on the kinect to verify your purchase, you then have the option to download or stream the game or both at the same time.
    The card is like a key and the kinect is the lock.

    I've been saying it for ages, next gen consoles will be download only machines with streaming and cloud based tech at the forefront.
    you cannot stop the march to digital only, boxed games are from the dinosaur era.
    The 3ds failed because Nintendo misjudged how relevant 3d was going to be, the vita failed because Sony are stupid retards that priced it to high and did not learn from the psp memory card era, the wiiu is an overpriced 360 with a crappy iPad ripoff controller.
    Next gen will be very powerful consoles that download games straight to the consoles that's a fact.

    HMV is a t-rex in the digital age,they overprice everything I used to pay 25 quid for vinyl back in the day.
    You see apple sliced their music business apart with iTunes and amazon outpriced them on games and dvds.
    They stocked millions of cds in the early 2000s just as digital started to take over way way behind the times.

  • Game Group's share price nose dives

  • niteninja 23/11/2011

    The competition has stepped up the price war.
    Grainger games has a strategy to open as many shops next to a gamestation or game as it possibly can.
    Add to the fact that the supermarkets are stocking more games than they ever had before, it becomes clear that game is being left behind by the opposition.
    For example gamestation were doing new 360 250 gig with fifa or cod for 199.99
    grainger were doing the same deal for 169.99 with 30 pound in store vouchers.

    Like it or not the industry is changing less big budjet titles, more indie and shareware type stuff.Its no longer profitable to make massive games with big budjets, that sit on store sheves gathering dust only to be discounted to 20 quid two weeks after launch.The industry is in all out survival mode, and if cheap mobile games are what it takes to be profitable thats how its going to be for the future.Theres a reason why EA just paid a ton of cash for a casual developer.Casual developers are the future of the games industry.
