Not only has it taken that long (and counting), but they literally asked the fans to make part of the game for them.

It gets a bit confusing here. There’s two types of enhancements - explicitly enhanced titles (“Optimized for Xbox Series X”), which have to run off of the SSD, and then automatic enhancements, where the Xbox will automatically increase framerate and resolution where possible, and add HDR automatically to content that Read more

I don’t think this is right, because Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is defintiely a full blown Xbox Series X game, and is still marketed as “Optimized for Xbox Series X”.

I don’t think so - this is exactly the workaround Apple suggested Microsoft try to make xCloud work.

Games are included in the subscription price. You choose 1 or more channels, each channel includes a certain library of games (and a certain price), and you get unlimited access to all the games on all the channels you subscribe to.

Also what are they going to do, spend tens if not hundreds of billions just to establish competing infrastructure so they can lose even more money trying to undercut game sales and each other? Read more

I don’t see the increased demand causing ISPs to improve. What I do see happening is that all of these internet giants recognize how dependent their core business is on fast, reliable, unlimited internet access, how woefully inadequate existing infrastructure is, and invest in building their own competitors - that is Read more

The next gen equivalent of Kinect is Game Pass + xCloud, at least in the sense that that is Microsoft’s “future of gaming” focus - I don’t think it’s in anywhere near the same boat in terms of “this is clearly doomed to fail”.

Sony were exclusive manufacturers of the PS Vita storage. It being proprietary wasn’t as big an issue as the fact that they didn’t allow anyone else to make and sell them, and that they used it as a profit driver like any other console accessory. Of course, we have to wait and see for sure, but Microsoft has said they Read more

I wonder if it is going to be possible to forgo the enhancements for the ability to run of HDD if you want...

Maybe - the stringent requirements of the PS5 (super high sustained read speed, not just peak read speed, somewhat restricted form-factor, and not a lot of space for fancy heatsinks to achieve aforementioned sustained speeds) eliminate a lot of the avenue for competing via cost cutting, so most of the compatible SSDs Read more

I wish they’d at least follow Microsoft in simplifying the game buying itself. There shouldn’t be a PS4 version and a PS5 version. It just confuses. I still don’t know if you can buy the PS5 version and play it on a PS4. If a game is cross-gen, it should just be a single SKU, like it is on Xbox. There’s not an Xbox Ser Read more

The Series S does have the same back compat functionality as the Series X. Every game that runs on Series X, backward compatible or otherwise, also runs on Series S. Both apply enhancements to existing titles. The only difference is that the Series X takes and enhances the One X enhanced version (if it exists), and Read more

The upgrade they’re talking about is from standard to ultimate edition of Miles Morales. There is no way to get Spider-Man remastered aside from buying Miles Morales Ultimate edition. It’s just that you don’t have to buy the Ultimate edition outright - you can buy the standard edition and then upgrade to ultimate Read more

Guess I should read all the comments before commenting myself. You got this same response 4 times already.

External drives serve 2 purposes on Series X - they can be used to play Xbox One (and older) games directly, and they can also be used to store Series X games. To play the Series X game you need to free up space on the internal drive and move them over (hopefully they have a mechanism to actually swap two games so you Read more

I suppose I’m misremembering. All the ones I watched, he had footage to back up his claims, so the features DID exist at the time, just didn’t make the final cut. But I certainly didn’t watch/remember every interview.

Oh I’m not suggesting it’s Sony’s fault that the core concept wasn’t working. But as a publisher, if you’re going to invest in such an ambitious title from such a new team, you have to prepare yourself for what happens if it doesn’t work out - I somehow doubt that it was Hello Games’ decision to scrap everything that Read more

I mean...yea, I get that. It’s just strange that they’re allowing several studios to make PC-only games, but none of them get to make Xbox-only games anymore. I guess the thinking is that everything that works on Xbox works on PC, but not vice-versa - but it’s still odd. I guess with 23 studios you don’t need them all Read more
