Sea of Thieves review - a Rare treasure

Negotiator

Such a great game as is! and has almost limitless potential in the months and years to come. Played with 2 friends the other evening and had a riot, looked at my watch and 2 hours had passed! Not since Halo 3 MP has the time flown so fast while gaming.

@HeroJez I think I'm right in saying the beta was only a slice of the full game correct? If that is the case there is already more there at launch.

I agree that this has massive potential in the future for incredible new content, also it's unlike any other game on the market and that is Rare these days.

With all this content to be added it looks like this game will have plenty of variety and that was the biggest concern. Games pass will insure this has a big player base, as long as Rare can keep growing the game as time goes on then the potential is limitless.

Obviously stolen and then improved slightly but stolen none the less, the original version is very clever though. Who knows Microsoft could offer the creator a position, unless of course this is there only decent piece.

How today's games could look and run better on future consoles

Negotiator

5 months ago

@kirankara I'm not sure what you're trying to prove here? Let's look at the facts. The CPU in the XBX is not comparable to any desktop CPU. If it did have a better CPU it would outperform the 480 or 580 simply because of the bandwidth advantage.

The GPU in the console has 44 CU's but 4 are deactivated in the retail console, this fact alone tells you the GPU is not the same as the 480 or 580. The TFlop differences are down to clock speed.

How Wolfenstein 2 scales up the console power ladder

Negotiator

6 months ago

Interesting that the Pro is starting to become the 1440p console which by no means is bad as I play PC at that resolution. How is the X likely to look in comparison I wonder? 4k would be too big a jump from the Pro, the face-offs are going to be very interesting.

Mine is pre-ordered as well and I am very surprised by this as well, did not see a 450 console that's not a new generation get this type of response. One thing is for sure though is that this is a brilliantly built piece of hardware in terms of specs and aesthetics, hope it continues to sell well.

I would pin performance somewhere between a 1060 and 1070 and that is very impressive when you consider a 1070 is over 300.

I think it has more value as all your back catalogue is playable and look much better and more stable. Obviously 4K is the big draw here, 4K Tv's are everywhere and the only way to play at that resolution is either PC or 1X.

Well I can say this impressive, as I did a little test a few weeks ago on my PC. Where I set Gears 4 to 4K30 on my PC which is using an overclocked 980 and it couldn't hold 4k30 locked all the time until I put dynamic resolution on at 15% and had to drop a few settings as well.

Another big selling point for me is the HDR across the board as it's a real pain to enable on PC and unavailable on a lot of games as well.

Microsoft's final sales pitch for Xbox One X falls flat

Negotiator

8 months ago

@GrandLeveller Well there is one big reason Red Dead 2 hasn't been announced for PC yet and the 1X version will be by far the best version.

Negotiator

8 months ago

@GrandLeveller So why would you build a PC with that money if not for 4K? So you would in fact have to buy a 4k display as well as build a powerful PC, which would mean spending more money than an 1X and 4K TV, simples.

One of the big draws for me is HDR and as of now it's not straight forward on PC and not even available on most games, 1X will have HDR across the board give or take.

This whole article is a little strange as it deems this as it's final sales pitch? Hardly accurate! I am hoping for a dedicated event so we can see new and older games running on X, to really hit home how powerful the console is.

@the_ewan Well I'm just saying that it's unexpected given the price tag, and it seems even Microsoft may have been surprised also. If Amazon have run out already and they are the biggest online retailer in the world it has to be a significant amount.

Joke post right?

Anyway played the beta for a few hours and it's really just more of the same while looking slightly better. I have to say that the FPS genre really needs something special to come along, because it's the same old same old. All the innovation seems to be in the third person games.

Revealed: Microsoft's Xbox One X benchmarks

Negotiator

10 months ago

These are all completely un-optimised game code that is months old, benchmarks that Microsoft put together for developers as a guide. From a developers point of view this must be very impressive, it's showing right from the off that X is more than capable of 4k on most X1 games with no extra work. Imagine what will be possible in a few months!

@schrodinger_cat It's not built into the system like 1X so it is down to the developer unfortunately. Once again there seems to be a trend of PRO games rendering at 1440p which is disappointing to say the least. I bought the PRO only a month ago and am feeling slightly disappointed.
