PlayStation 4 exclusive Spider-Man launches September

@LawnmowerDuck Sony own the Spider-Man IP and have done for years. No deal was done and it had nothing to do with MCU. They are just no longer sharing it outside the movies. Finally we should get a decent Spider-Man game.

I donít expect anything from MS this E3, because tbh anything outside gears, halo & Forza will be years away or timed exclusives. Everyone hyped up last year and it was terrible so I donít expect anything this year.

I never play my one x, only use it for the UHD blu rays. Currently playing Nioh & RE7 on my Pro which are both excellent so far. My biggest gripe with the Xbox is the UI, itís unbelievable how poor it is compared to Sonyís UI :-/

@mega-gazz haha I had to laugh my arse of at it having the full support of Microsoft behind it. Tbh most of Sonyís 1st party games look better than anything on the X :-/ Honestly the X is good value compared to a pc yet itís still nowhere near as good value as the pro, because itís hampered by a shit ui, frustratingly long game installs and patches of ridiculous size. On top of all that we have games where the only difference between the two is resolution, what happened to the 4k textures & better frame rate?
As you can tell Iím one of the stupid people with more money than sense, and has realised that I made a big mistake with my purchase 🤬

Well unfortunately the ray of sunshine that was the X has dissipated, and now all I want to do is put a 🔨 through it 🤬 How MS a renowned software company canít do the simple things right it beyond me. I have switched back to my Pro which is like a breath of fresh compared the dog shit front end of the Xbox.
I have well over 100 games on my Pro (2tb) and 7 on the X which is already half full. So now Iím looking at 15-20 games before the HDD is full - this is not good enough.. and I wonít even mention install times and patches because the 🔨 will come out 🤯

How does Call of Duty: WW2 look on Xbox One X and PS4 Pro?

Edz72

5 months ago

@super_monty easy answer is no save your money, but I would whole heartedly disagree with the leap from the ps3/360 was a lot bigger than from the ps4/one to these mid gen refreshes. Same games just a new lick of paint. Take quantum break as an example, the animations are pretty poor and the hair looks like plastic wigs and 1440p/4K is not going to change that. Game is fun in places but it definitely feels like an old game when your playing it.

@telboy007 I totally understand its just a bit disappointing tbh. At the moment the X only has a higher resolution over the pro in most multi platform games which was expected. Hopefully this will change in future if not it becomes a very questionable purchase.
I brought 4 games and the only one I am impressed with is Forza Horizon 3. 😕

Right this getting to be a bit of a joke now. Can someone please tell me what I need to do to speed these installs up, I was playing a game thinking that a patch from another game would download in the back round whilst Iím playing but when I went back to the desktop it had queued the patch download ☹️ So now Iíve got to sit here at the desktop waiting for the patch to download. I must be missing something?

@duff_uk for me and a lot of primary ps4 users I would say the difference being is that I will stick with the pro for multiplayer gaming as itís where all my friends are. Also the difference between the two consoles is visuals only where as last gen the ps3 performed worse as well as looked worse than the 360.

Well out of the 3 games I have managed to actually play after having the console half a day now I can honestly say the following. Horizon 3 is great, quantum break is average and doom is somewhere in between. The hardware is great, the ui and game installs are poor.
Itís a mix bag all round (as expected). Overall as a pro owner I can say that both have pros and cons and both lack refinement in different areas.

1080p is the least of the ui issues, itís complete garbage, lays of adverts, everything under multiple layers. I assume this is the latest update to the ui, well if this is an improvement I canít even imagine how shit it was before. Thereís literally pages of nothing but adverts and random info on pointless crap.

Ah ok I assume thatís something I can choose in the settings? It is installing both at the same time but itís painfully slow. Unfortunately with games being 50gb and then these huge updates itís time to look into speeding the process up and on the Xbox itís got to be priority a.s.a.p

@Edz72 nearly 6 hours later and Iíve still only played one game 🙁 I canít even download more than one update, canít even remove the disk because the install is taking as long as the updates. This is fucking backwards, I am loosing the will to give a crap anymore.
Number 1 priority for next generation is to speed things up because this is not ideal.

Well as a PS4 Pro owner from launch I picked up a x today and all I can say is Iím disappointed. Not with the hardware or the power but the ui is utter garbage and game installs/updates are a joke. Picked up the console 4 hours ago and have managed to play one game (doom). Now waiting for quantum break to download/install and itís got a 77gb update to download, and itís far to slow to transfer the data from the disk.
As itís been mentioned the noise level compared to the pro is identical although the build quality of the x is better imo

This will get patched no doubt, but I have to say itís hardly suprissing tbh. Itís the same old Microsoft hyping the crap of their products to the point that any issues, cut backs, missing features leave a bitter taste. Just like the original Kinect and Xbox one, do they learn nothing?

Microsoft announces EA Access-style Xbox Game Pass subscription

Edz72

1 year ago

Great idea if it gave you access to all games, but for me the reality is if I wanted to play a game i would have brought it near release. I have no interest in play old shit games. My time is worth too much to me.

Much like Netflix which I still pay monthly but the difference being is access to original new content that I can't get anywhere else. Maybe MS should have exclusive games on this like crackdown and sea of theives then it would be far more appealing.

Personally I think the switch looks like good value at £280 and although the launch lineup isn't top notch having zelda on day one is something special, but all that aside this is the first console generation where I feel content with what I have (ps4 pro) and see no reason to own a second console. Don't want or need a second online sub and at the moment I can't realistically keep up with all the games I already want this year on the console I already own.

At this point in time it is looking very much that the Scorpio will end up being a more powerful ps4 pro. If that is the case then that will be extremely disappointing, not that there is anything wrong with the ps4 pro but it means the benefits for 1080p tv owners will be minimal at best outside exclusives which as we know if not ms strength at the moment :-/

@SwissTony1994 Jesus ... You really up Sony's arse aren't you?

So you honestly think that MS have low morals? Lower than Sony's? don't give me that shit.

Oh and where do you work out the Microsoft haven't bought anything positive to the games industry. They are the ones that pushed Sony to be better, and likewise Sony are pushing Microsoft to be better as well ...

So you think Microsoft leaving the market would be the best for the industry do you ... Then your a fucking idiot ...

What the hell are you prattling on about, just because I despise MS and what they done (nothing btw) for gaming does not mean I think Sony are saints...
And yes I would be very happy if they left the gaming industry, more than happy if they were replaced by a company who gave a crap about it's consumers. I don't actually think we could do any worse (with the exception of Apple).

@jabberwoky Still hard to forgive MS for trying to get rid of used games. Still they have had the kicking they deserved and I hope they survive and learn rather than get thrown out of the market.

Personally the sooner MS do get out of the market the better, hopefully replaced by a company that has a lot higher morals. MS have brought absolutely nothing positive to gaming whatsoever, and that is clear to see reading XbDf's posts..

@mega-gazz That is exactly my point. So suddenly they are going to see the big hitters advertised by Sony and think oh that's now the machine to play those games I will grab one of them. This is a complete role reversal from last gen. It will now be interesting if MS can keep the momentum going with exclusives year on year like Sony did with the PS3.

@mega-gazz Your wrong, Sony has MGS5, Battlefront, COD3 & AC because to the average gamer they will see the adverts promoting those games on the PS4 and won't notice or care that you can get them on another system. The hardcore gamers are the only ones that take notice and they have already made their choice, and if they wanted both they would have bought them last year...

Really enjoyable read, yet all I hope is that Microsoft crash and burn at E3. Better still close down would make my day/week/year. Not going to happen but I can only hope....
Nothing against the Xbox one per se just despise the company and their money grabbing morals. Typical large brash American company determined to monopolise and drive gaming into the ground once it's rinsed dry.
