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

onyxbox

9 months ago

I think MS just want the XBox to be their Steam Box and leverage the traction they have to try and get their own store to be popular with PC gamer.

Kind of the reverse of Steam's approached i.e. leverage traction they have on PC to get under TV with Steam Box.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is Nintendo's first UK chart topper in six years

onyxbox

1 year ago

Been playing MK8 all weekend (on and off the telly). Loving the Switch, it's an awesome machine... the only downside (as others have said) is that it leaves you wishing you could play everything on it... I'd even happily accept some visual downgrade as a tradeoff for portability.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe review

Had this on the Wii U... can't wait to get it on Switch and take it with me everywhere.

I'm loving the Switch so far, best console purchase in years... great games & fits in with my life.

A Switch is for life, not just for Zelda

onyxbox

1 year ago

I bought a PS4 at launch ... and all it had was Resogun and Killzone ... a few months on... Infamous.

I had serious buyers remorse for months.



I bought a Switch at launch and I've had no such buyers remorse... it's great!

Zelda is great game and there's a nice smattering of things on the store to cleans the pallet from Zelda from time to time.

I just hope Nintendo can continue to cultivate good relations with the indie devs much like how Sony did.

Why are some PS4 Pro titles running slower than base hardware?

onyxbox

2 years ago

I'm not sold on PS4 pro at all and I have a 4K HDR TV... I think they jumped the gun a bit too early. The only benefit I guess is that by the time Scorpio comes out the PS4 Pro will most likely be considerably cheaper and perhaps a bit quieter by then.

I say hold out and let the TV do the upscaling for now.

Digital Foundry vs Xbox One streaming on Windows 10

onyxbox

3 years ago

For what it's worth.... I have been streaming my PS4 to my Xperia Z3 tablet (and phone) and on the whole it's been a very mixed bag.

I have tried the XBox one streaming on the same network with the same setup and I'd say its been consistently better (although still not perfect).

I hope things improve on both platforms however I have a feeling Sony won't improve theirs whereas Microsoft will continue to improve their offering.

Star Wars Battlefront on PS4 shows huge promise - but needs work

It amazes me how much bandwidth is spent in the games industry talking about 1080 / 60.

If we were as enthusiastic about gameplay, original ideas and story as much as we are about how quickly a game can render a scene I think we'd all be much happier.

Microsoft's difficult choice at E3 2015

onyxbox

As an owner of PS4 from launch I'd say that Sony are the ones that need to bring it this year because they've been coasting for the past 2 years... I'm quite disappointed in their 1st party games so far ... felt like PS3 had loads of cool exclusive stuff by this time in its lifecycle.

Tech Analysis: Halo 3: ODST on Xbox One

onyxbox

I've thoroughly enjoyed MCC but it has become a liability for 343 and all this extra work on ODST and bug fixing is simple damage limitation now ... which is a shame because I'm sure they wanted it to be a celebration of Halo and not a reminder of what can go wrong

it is a great game ... seems like XBox is getting quite a good run of quality 'indie' titles lately that have come out previously on other systems which gives me the impression that the 'parity clause' is pretty relaxed by this point.

@KrispyKrispy I've got this issue too... TV is set to Game Mode (don't see this issue on other games).

I think it's something called a 'frame pacing issue' ... the game is running at a high frame-rate but the occasional frame is out of sync somehow and makes it look like a slight stutter, especially noticeable like you said when turning.

The best Xbox One games

onyxbox

3 years ago

I enjoy all the current systems and last year I enjoyed the XBox One the most because it had more games that interested me... This year... Things might be different because of stuff like Bloodborne and No Mans Sky.

The differences in graphics between PS4 and XB1 are negligable and aren't worth discussing in my opinion.. For any real hike in visual fidelity it seems to me like PC is the way to go.
