The Virtual Console's continued absence on Switch is creating some exciting possibilities

I think the only reason we donít have the virtual console yet is because they wanted to sell a fuckload of Snes minis.

DF Retro takes on Donkey Kong Country and Killer Instinct

With DKC it all came together, graphically it was a jump up compared to anything that was out at the moment, and the gameplay was so smooth and fluid, it was a real joy to play. A bit easy maybe, but the level design kept everything fresh and there was enough content to keep you busy for a couple of nights.

I remember there was a page in the manual explaining the 3D silicon graphics used in the game.
We all knew the ULTRA 64 was about to come out, we had seen KI and cruisin' usa in the arcades which both looked amazing. There was this feeling that nintendo had the next gen in the bag, but it didn't really pan out that way :D

Xbox One X's 4K Destiny 2 upgrade analysed

Fake_Blood

Whenever they show the footage in slowmo the difference between 30/60fps is so huge that I can't help going "lol consoles". It's fine for most games, but shooters -just like racing games- really need to run at 60fps. I get that it also has to run on base consoles, but I fear that might turn into a curse in the long run.

@Merefield You're exactly right. I remember a time when a new console came out and it did stuff that just wasn't possible on the previous gen. Like hey, mario is in 3D now!

Game from 2015, 4K at 30 fps + we spotted some slowdown when the screen is filled with rushing water.

Exactly what I expected, whatever the power, whatever the resolution, devs are always going to push it till it barely runs at 30fps on consoles.

Way too expensive for me. I'm going to wait for a 65" OLED at a reasonable price. At the distance most people sit from their tv anything smaller is useless at 4K anyway.

I won't be buying an xbox x, but as a pc gamer I'm glad a lot of games will be build with 4k in mind. I remember the end of the 360/ps3 cycle which lasted 7 years, where we would get ports on pc that added nothing but higher resolutions. This is good for all gamers.

I can see sony's side on this. Minecraft is probably not a big deal for them and Rocket League is probably on the tail end of it's sale curve on their platform. And maybe they are afraid of hackers? I'm not saying they are right and that this is cool, just that they probably don't have a lot to gain from this.
