  • US Xbox One sales rise but PlayStation 4 still top

  • sammelito 12/09/2014

    Instead of focusing on the difference between the consoles, why dont we all look at what matters here. PS4 & Xbox One combined sales are 70% higher than the previous-gen after the same time. Reply +10

  • Rise of the Tomb Raider exclusive to Xbox One

  • sammelito 13/08/2014

    You know, if this was like the situation with Nintendo/Bayonetta 2 where they funded the game, it would have been acceptable. But this is Microsoft paying for exclusive rights for a game that Square Enix funded with OUR money. Money that came from PS, Xbox and PC users. That is one big fucking slap in the face. Reply +5

    @Suarez07
    interesting that developers and publishers were more concerned about drm and 2nd hand sales than piracy on pc right? because guess which costs them more money?
    Well, DRM exists to combat pirated copies. So if they are concerned about DRM - they are concerned about pirated copies.

  • Can a 100 PC graphics card match next-gen console?

  • sammelito 26/01/2014

    @Faramis
    It is still more than next-gen is able to achieve.
    That is bold of you to say considering the console versions ran at a locked 30 fps. Unlocking the frame rate would have resulted in the same, if not higher frame rates.

    Bottomline is, if you are smart and do not get crazy resolution like 2k+, but strickly adhere to the 1080p guideline resolution for "next-gen" consoles, and if you have GPU on par with at least GTX670, you are pretty much sitting on gold for the whole PS4/X1 cycle, maybe having few issues near its end.
    Considering these are first year launch titles that were developed on incomplete hardware (PS4's 4GB ram that was increased in february springs to mind) I'd say it is too early to say that just now. Let us wait for the second wave in autumn 2014.

  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Ti review

  • sammelito 17/12/2013

    @Suarez07 Why do you avoid the facts? An entire console will everything included costs 399$. A fucking graphics card that at best manages 1080P60FPS at maximum settings costs 550 ALONE. How is that price actually reasonable to any rational human being for increasing the graphics preset one notch from high to ultra and increasing the resolution from 900p to 1080P. 780 TI and 690 matches eachothers? They might match eachother in terms of raw power but they are different chipsets you idiot.
    Yes you could overclock an 780ti but that would raise the already high 85C to a dangerous temperature.
    You have choice which created the double edged sword and nets you bad ports. You bought a ferrari for a highway with a 100 km/h limit. I am done discussing with you since your bias is beyond comprehension.

    @Suarez07 So now you are resorting to throwing mindless insults to defend your incredibly apparent PC fanboyism. I have not seen one comment from you actually bothering to portay the platforms as a neutral and unbiased person. You stink of bias and twist your replies to what you want to answer.
    I omitted mentioning CEX because it omitted my agenda? Close minded and one sided view at best. Does everyone on this website live in the UK? You still havent bothered to put up even one proper argument to our discussion.
    For the record, I live in Sweden and the game prices here are very close when comparing PC and console games with the PC games being 10 cheaper on average. Which AGAIN, is offset by the resale value.

  • sammelito 16/12/2013

    @Suarez07 I am in no way happy, but I lack time to continue here and have to move on, however consider this.
    The GTX 690 is a dual-gpu. This article was about single-gpu performance in high-end games.
    What I was trying to reach was the fact that a 550 card is not enough to justfiy a purchase and crank up the slider of the PS4 version one notch to ultra and achieve the "holy grail" of 60 fps.
    I was initially pointing out that the most powerful single-gpu today still cannot run the higher-than-1080P resolutions at max settings and 60 fps. Why? Most PC gamers downplay consoles because they are so far behind. Well guess what. You are limitied to 1080P if you want full visual flair and 60 fps. Its simple. You cannot take a linear graph and expect a higher Y as a result of buying more powerful hardware
    , X. You buy more power, games increase in complexity. Yes, PC gamers could run 1080P seven years ago when the previous gen consoles released, but you are still limitied to 1080P if you want to maintain the highest visual quality.

    @George-Roper A standardized platform. Yeah, sums it up as much as "open platform" does for PC gaming. None actually says much then you think about it.
    Power draw is a concern to be taken account of when you mention "in the long run" It is definitely worth taking into consideration when you are using that respective platform for gaming for the next 6 years or so. If lamps that reduces power draw are sold and bought, why would consoles that draw less than PC's be considered a very weak concern? I personally believe it is a very valuable argument when speaking about price.
    Then we have the resale value. I do never, and I know nobody who sells their games to retailers. Anyone with a decent amount if IQ is smart enough to know there are other ways of getting more value. Selling games at ebay nets you atleast double the amount retailers offer you.
    By the time 2nd hand is gone, consoles would be no more and instead we would have streaming devices with subsriptions. Think netflix for gaming.
    The "big names" release their games on the PC too, mind you, and you are also exposed to their DLC overload. Not all games are moddable, those that has mods however, are great and is one big factor in considering PC gaming in my opinion, and less so about the power aspect, since the last couple of years has been rebranding of cards and games are barely looking better than their predecessors. There is a reason Intel and other manufacturers are now looking to develop cost effective alternatives like APU's. Energy consumption is valuable and should be taken into consideration. Do not underestimate the consumption a high-end PC can draw during full-load.

    @Suarez07 Trading games in at game? You see, thats my problem. You judge ALL console gamers and assume they are ALL average joe's. A sensible person would sell their old games on ebay and recieve a higher price, like I did for my PS3 catalouge. Managed to fetch 300% more than what game or any other retailer was offering me. I do not assume you go to some retailer with your old gfx card and trade it in, instead I would guess you are someone that knows his shit and instead sells it online to the highest bidder.
    What annoys me the most about PC gamers is the fact that they draw all console gamers over one line.
    Besides, since when did new games cost 25 on PC? New releases on steam costs 59.99 and a little cheaper if you search elsewhere.
    Would it be wise to assume that all PC gamers are kids that play LoL because it happens to have the biggest demographic and community? NO! Just like it's not fair for you to assume all console gamers are rabid idiots not knowing a shit about gaming as a whole and not just console gaming.
    I just noticed I attracted your ratpack after commenting. Try to read their replies with common sense and decide if they actually differ so much from the common console fanboy in terms of one-sided argumenting.

    @Suarez07 I was quoting the article but didn't know how to outline it. Thought it would be obvious I wasn't quoting you. I came to the conclusion that a GTX 70 Ti was just barely capable of running BF4 in 1080P at an average 60 frames per second by looking at the graphs and videos. Is DF lying or am I just making shit up?
    Besides, you compared the PS4 version running 64 player conquest to a radeon 7870 based on the singeplayer, I know it was offtopic, but try to stay unbiased in your future posts if you want any form of credibility.

    @ATARI Since almost your entire comment didn't make any sense, I am gonna answer your last paragraph. You see, thats the problem with these PC oriented articles. The PC fanboys try hard to act neutral and unbiased when comparing PC to consoles and barely bothers to even mention any positive aspects of having a console. Lets take the price argument for example. Commonly said is that PC gaming is cheaper in the long run because of game prices and steam sales. Well great. What about the resale value of buying console games? Where did that argument go? What about the electricity that the respective systems draw? I am sorry, but there are either PC fanboys or console fanboys. Anything inbetween is extremely rare.
    I am probably going to get downvoted for stating the facts, but hey, whatever.

    @Suarez07 "While these cards generally excel at 2560x1440, it's worth noting that top-end games at 1080p can still give all of these Titan-level cards a bit of a pummelling."

    PC fanboys are just as bad as console fanboys when it comes to spitting utter bullshit.
    You really like to point out how consoles struggle in 1080P gaming with peformance and how far behind they are. Funny enough however, even a GTX 780 TI, which costs more than a console barely manages to run BF4 in 1080P at 60 fps, worse even when it comes to Crysis 3.
    Oh, and don't tell me you can lower the settings for a better performance. Didn't you just encourage others to make the jump to PC gaming for "dat dere eye candy"? Hop off your white horse and come back to reality, you know, to us peasants.

    @Suarez07 The PS4 version of BF4 runs at high settings with shadows, textures cranked up to ultra with HBAO. The 7870 was running the high-preset which uses SSAO as default. Reply 0

  • sammelito 07/10/2013

    @Suarez07 You bring it up in almost every article, not only tech oriented. And for your knowledge, I do have a gaming PC, which I use to play Dota 2 and some exclusives with, in 1080P and 120 FPS. What I mean is that upgrading to PC gaming for the sole reason of having more eye candy is stupid, as it will not be worth it after some time, which I experienced myself. The majority of gamers go for mid-end configurations that require upgrades every second year to meet recommended requirements, and even then you wont maintain 60 FPS. Unless there are PC games you love, like SC2, Dota 2 and the likes, Framerates and resolution are not enough to upgrade. Reply -1

    I simply can't fathom the double standards of some people in here.

Back to the future, Puppeteer, a PS3 exclusive is awarded a 6/10 from eurogamer and suddenly it's a great, unbiased review. I am not gonna call out any names on this. Reply -5
