If you read Berger's statements in the voice of Puss In Boots from Shrek they sound a lot less worrying.

@uglybanana Hee hee. You ARE, at least according to the THX specs. For a 51" TV the ideal distance is 5 feet. I sit farther away than that from my slightly smaller TV and 720p games look as jaggy as anything. Then I play something fast-moving and it starts flashing bright lights at me and crushing my hip-bones with its sound effects. I'm giggling and popping baddies faces off and I don't care about the resolution.

Or I play Tiger Woods and it looks like utter shit. It all depends on the game. The seeming discrepancy between the consoles at this early stage is reminiscent of the development difficulties in the early days of the PS3. Time will tell. I'm not getting either yet. Shame. I made space for them both last week, to see what four consoles under my TV would look like. Turns out it would look as cool as fuck. Maybe next year.

Another thing. This comment thread, and others like it, are marketing gold. You can tell at a glance who has pre-ordered what. It's great fun reading them.

But now those days are gone, I play online no more. I quit that shit when my GS hit ten thousand and 4.

So,
Kill yourself for slightly changing gu-uns (guns, guns, guns)
We're only playing 'coz we fooled our mu-ums (mums, mums, mums)
We live on sweets and have distended gu-ums.
Won't you please, please, please... help me.

@Negotiator1 Mark Cerny says ""For example, by having the hardware dedicated unit for audio, that means we can support audio chat without the games needing to dedicate any significant resources to them. The same thing for compression and decompression of video." The audio unit also handles decompression of "a very large number" of MP3 streams for in-game audio, Cerny added."

@coolbritannia I'm going to buy both anyway, as long as the games justify it. I give nary a fuck if the One wants my face online. judicious use of gaffer tape will sort that out. If I read online that the box refuses to turn on when blind then I wont get one. If PS4 needs a DNA sample I'll continue to feed Gabe's filthy pie-engine. Games is all I care about. If you ever see me fellating a huge conglomerate in an alleyway please kill me.

@Mazzle If you've been the victim of a rapist I fail to see the difference between reading something that turns out to be about rape rather than an explicit statement that the following words are about rape. I'm off to panic-land anyway.

@TigerX81 I logged in to say exactly the same thing, and that was just from reading the title. :)

I really like JM's articles. The games he writes about, even if they're not always brilliantly executed, are what is exciting me about gaming at the moment. I haven't felt like this since I got an Amiga.

I hope Microsoft change their mind about indie before they launch, so the small devs have as big a chance to flourish as possible. There are some proper belters on XBLIG.

When I was younger the words "wad" "jet" and "eye" in the same sentence meant illicit German pornography, not video-game larks.

@JedEvangelion why should the Kickstarter kids take that risk on?

Because it isn't a risk for the people donating to the kickstarter.

Half a million from one person or a tenner each from 50,000 people.

People are assuming that Molyneux has half a million quid kicking around that he can afford to spunk up the wall and spunk up the wall with no way of knowing if it is worth doing, but somehow it's abhorrent for him to ask people to give a small donation (and implicitly their support) for a project.

I won't be buying this if it comes out and I certainly won't be donating to the kickstarter but I can't see the reason for all the anger other than it seems like a pretty popular bandwagon to be on.

tl;dr : Noisy cheapskate internet keyboard warriors with no business acumen want him to pay for a game out of his own pocket which, if it comes out they'll probably end up pirating anyway.

I'm not putting you in this category btw, JedEvangelion

@Sharzam

They do have their use. That is to be used by morons who think Eastenders is supposed to look like it was shot on 70mm film. The same kind of person who only ten years ago couldn't find the aspect ratio button on their remote control and thought everyone on TV was three feet high and ten feet wide. People who watched DVDs through a composite cable.

People who, in short, think shop settings are correct settings.

The name reminds me of this:

Free Xbox Live screening of Minecraft documentary on Saturday for Gold members

MIckelsenWhiteLTD

5 years ago

It seems I'm going to spend the evening trying to defend the seemingly indefensible. First Molyneux, now Microsoft.

It is free. If you have an XBox live subscription you will not have to pay any extra to watch this video. You will have to pay for xbox live and internet access, own an XBox 360 and a telly to watch it on but for goodness sake... if you have all these things then the video is free to watch.

I got a free Galaxy tablet when I bought my telly but the internet didn't start weeping that because they hadn't bought the TV then the tablet wouldn't be free for them. Come to think of it someone, somewhere probably did but that's beside the point.

While I'm in full moany-bugger mode:

@LFace Bollocks to paying MS extra for the privelage of playing the advertised features of a game I buy full price for.

"Paid membership required for online play."
There's yer advertised features right there.

"a few quid on Ebay"? Wow. I bought it out of Gamestation for 50p in 2010 and I spent 3.50 on bus fare the next weekend to take it back because it was bloody awful. I swapped it for King Kong which I subsequently sold to CEX for a fiver.

I'm a quid up! Screw you, Lord Sugar.

Microsoft retires Facebook and Twitter from Xbox 360, suggests you use Internet Explorer

@nick-h That's interesting. And when I say "interesting" I actually mean 100% bollocks. The Dreamcast was the Sega/MS co-dev machine, OpenGL is still in use today and MS never made any money off PC games unless they published them themselves.

@Robotwarz I've still got touch-sensitive buttons, backwards compatibility and USB ports on my PS3. And a massive, self installed HDD to boot. I'd also guess (but it is a guess*) that many more people used Fuckface and Twitter on their 360 than used the OtherOS option on PS3.

*see how that works? Just because you think something is true doesn't actually make it fucking so.
