    Signed up a few days ago. This has always looked interesting to me, but I don’t really play PC games, so I’ve never checked it out before.

    Looking forward to trying it out on 360.

    Off the subject for major or anyone but does someone know if forza 5 is the only game announced to be in 1080p/60fps. Are there others. I’ve heard that their not pushing devs to go for 1080p. Its weird how when the 360 was announced all u heard was 720p and that devs had to use that res, but for the one no 1080p flaunting. I think 1080p/60fps should be the standard on the one. Shouldn’t be 2 hard if its 6-8 times more powerful. But then again when u reserve 3 of 8 gigs of ram to run apps like skype and sharing and all that stuff I won’t use, I guess I can only hope.

      My understanding in reading online news post etc etc… all games for the Xbox One will be 1080p/60 fps… now if that’s true I don’t know…but it’s on the internet, it has to be true…right.😉

      talking about forza 5, anyone know if we’ll need to buy completely new sets of wireless racing wheel as the 360 wireless technology is different than the One uses? those things can be pricey.

    BF4 on the one will be 1080p/60fps…I asked the developer at E3 myself… unfortunately, the 360 version will still be 720p.

      It’d be shocking if it wasn’t running at 1080p. No surprise with the 360 version as that’s the limitation for all 360 games.

    It won’t because the Xbox One uses up 3GB Ram for Operating system. That leaves 5GB for games. My guess is BF4 in 1080p at 60 FPS is around 2-3GB of RAM usage. So, If they did have 1080p 60FPS, it’s going to make the console REALLY work hard. I sense another year of RROD’s!!!

    PS4 pre-ordered with BF4

    • HerrPie

      Well when it was shown on the Microsoft show it was running at 60fps. So unless they had a 720p feed on it you’re off on that sense.

        One can’t just simply run a game programmed for a console with a modified AMD-GPU on a computer with an Nvidia-GPU. It’s probably running an emulator, this is nothing special really. Demos in 2005 of the 360 ran on Macs…

        Like

      • jlh

        All of the games at E3 were running off development hardware and that means computers. There was no final hardware there (well except for Nintendo) and that’s the way it has always been. The early 360 development kits were top of the line G5s which the final 360 hardware out performed. So any machine that the developers are running their Xbox One engines off of right now will have comparable specs to the final hardware.

        Look up Xbox One Open Cabinet under images and you will see, that they didn’t even use Xbox One’s at all.

        Seen it before, it’s nothing new that when a new console is released they’ll use a dev kit to demo before it’s released so there aren’t any live models on the show floor that run the risk of being stolen.

        It is sort of shocking that they were using an Nvidia card though.😀

        You’ve also gotta remember that hardware for consoles tends to be much more efficient. Look at what the 360 is running, if you put that in a pc there’s no way you’d manage to play BF3 at the rate that it does.

        ummm.. that’s because the games for console are decompressed to be able to handle the hardware…

        the ram has nothing to do with FPS unless they run out, which I doubt they will because 5gb free. not defending xbone, just saying your reasoning are ridiculous

        all that said the gpu of the ps4 is much better, so will probably either look better or run smoother

        Look for the PS4 stress test video. 1 Million polygon test. He dropped 1 Million polygons at once from the sky and it didn’t even affect the Frame rate at all.

        the stress test is irrelevant to the discussion. RAM doesn’t work like that, RAM doesn’t effect fps at all unless you run out (in which case the game will use the MUCH MUCH MUCH slower hard drive cache, which would bring the whole system to a crawl, we are talking 1 frame per minute style crawl.

        most games ON PC use 4gb or ram or less, the xbone has 5gb free to developers and it’s a console so it can be optimized well. the only question is if the cpu/gpu can run it anywhere near as well as what was shown at e3.

    never liked world of tanks, I was in the beta for pc.

    the gist of the game is you customize one of many tanks, get into a match, die, then twiddle your thumbs waiting till the match to end. so it’s basically like search and destroy with tanks. no respawns kills the fun, slow progression of getting new “tiered” tanks kills if for people who don’t have a lot of time.

    the only real brightside of the game is it’s free.

      If you play with tactics and skill you don’t just die right away. Also you can leave the battle as soon as you die, and enter a different abttle on a different tank. Are you sure you have played this?

      I may strongly, strongly dislike the Xbox One,

      But I’ll never dislike the Major. He’s always seemingly been a good guy. I have a feeling he must have been kept in the dark about all these policies until after the reveal.

      I’ll always love the Xbox 360 as well. I fought through many RROD’s, but the console has always been good to me, many awesome memories I’ve had with it.

        True.
        At least it wasn’t Xbox One or nothing right?

        I feel ya though. Region locking is really backwards thinking, why have it if you can’t do a world-wide launch?

        There are English speakers in many countries that prefer the original audio of games.
        Why can’t they import the English version!?
        That’s really stupid and expect piracy because of it..

        Lol, haven’t thought about if it was the other way around. Actually now that you mention it I’m actually glad that it isn’t the other way around.

        As for localization Portugal never had it for Xbox 360 so we always play in English, so it’s even more intriguing as they wouldn’t have to do a thing… It’s coming out in Spain and its very easy to import stuff from there as its very close but with live restrictions that is not an option… We could create a fake account probably but I don’t think I’m going to bother risking it.
        (I actually have a us fake account to get stuff not available in Europe)

        Sony in the other hand always showed love for the country with day one launches, voice localization AND original English in the games, but we are a playstation nation so…

        Xbox has many followers despite no love from Microsoft but I think that’s over now. I was one of them and responsible for a lot of new Xbox gamers when I showed how much better the online service was but all my work is now undone cause everybody is going back to Sony myself included…

    Don’t get me wrong all the new xbox games on display at E3 blew me away as they always do, and throughout the whole of E3 I had tonnes of unanswered questions on a lot of issues I’ve even seen a statement from one of the top dogs at Microsoft saying theis be the last console u ever buy sound great but very unbelievable, reason I say that is for the 360 I’ve had 3 possible 4 different console just to be able to upgrade were as it was faults for old system or lack of larger hard drive space which MS love increasing to try get 1 over on Sony, The cloud thing seems great but there a lot of talk of downloading games to your hard drive and the cloud so how do we free up space on our hard drive when we have huge library of game cause going with my 360 games to date 2 terabyte wouldn’t be enough, I adjust want to know how the cloud work i hope it’s when aren’t playing your oldergames u can transfer them from your hard drive to cloud to free up space for more games that would be great, only then would 500 GB would be enough please can someone enlighten me thanks. Last niggle of the day hopefully, if Microsoft do bring an upgraded version of the console out in 1 or 2 years time as they do am I going to be able to offload my old console easily to Microsoft or store retailer so I don’t have have to pay top dollar for an upgrade And can put my mind at ease that il get a discount from my old device, I love my upgraded version and always keep stuff up to date but I don’t want left with a cheep piece of plastic that’s works brilliantly sitting in corner collecting dust not getting used

        Beta sounds great but as this point in time I’m advancing and I’m focused solely on next GEN hopefully with xbox one but I need whole lot more clarity so I don’t jump ship to garbage playstation as for world of tank excellent looking game for I think there introducing it a little late because Microsoft have always had the ability to bring us pc games, and they have left us hanging nearly 8 friggin years. I am split just now on next GEN but if I’m still with xbox 1 then yeah I be right up for world of tanks friggin yeah means I don’t have to wait till a new Cod brings tanks back into the fold I just get tank on tank action out my head.

      I’m assuming that English is not your first language, which there is nothing wrong with, but I have read every one of your posts and you have some really good questions that are really hard to take out of your statements. First I would like to tell you to use the parental blocks so your child does not mess anything else up. I know that is a restriction and they will not like it but that is a responsibility of the parent not a corporation (see what I did there?).

      You should have no problem with upgrading your system but at the current price of them (especially for you) I woud hope that you are not going to buy one every 1-2 years. I know right now it seems as if Microsoft is trying to toss many of their loyal customers, but they can still change things they have done wrong.

      If you could spread your questions out and make them easier to single out it would be alot better for anyone who may know the answers to let you know. As of right now there are not a whole lot of answers out there and they keep feeding us with more questions or unneeded info rather than what people want to know. Please keep trying though because you do have great questions that I would like to know the answers to as well, all you have to do now is put them into question form and ending each one with one of these (?). Cheers

        Your right with the parent control but my kid did I say was un-avoidable and in my eyes there was nothing wrong what she did she was helping other out as she had finished with the game she was using, and not going into to much detail EA felt they were loosing money even know they put methods in games these days to rob us blind dont know if you play it FIFA UT but that’s the worse case scenario. Anyway enough with all that what I’ve been doing lately is sort of spamming some messages don’t know if I’m in right place or wrong but seems like there’s a lot in these blogs doing the same and everyone is looking for answers. while Microsoft have locked them self away in an office at the moment, as soon as they get out and explain more clearly it’ll put us hardcore gamer that have dedicated many years to Microsoft minds at rest and we can get on with this next GEN console and gaming again, as money ain’t the issue as would have spent £700 on a new console, as for used games I used to do but that ain’t bothering me this time around was planning to keep my games anyway. But for these 24 hr checked they may as well stick a tag round round my ankles what’s wrong with every week or every month or only when multiplayer games are taking place give us a little breathing space there been tonnes of times I’ve been disconnected and that been days at a time. I bet we’ll go into same scenario as the pc industry we will get charged more for games and we’ll need to pay for our yearly gold subscription were as pc owner only need there Internet connection it just feels like they think they own us Thinking we’ve no we’re to turn and come release of PS4 their going to get shock to the system.
