        We waited on Don Mattrick to see what he did, and he spent more money on a camera than he did on xbone hardware, then didn’t even make motion controlled games. Pointless much? I’m not buying an xbone to see what “might” happen. If M$ wanted to sell me one, it should have had something to show for kinect at E3. Kinect sports? That’s it? Where’s the kinect games M$?

        Because M$ cheaped out on original kinect, and removed the built in processor, so it was to laggy to make good games for. Now M$ makes a decent kinect, and still doesn’t make any games for the camera. They should have just gotten rid of it if they aren’t going to use it for anything good. M$ is too wishy washy, they don’t know where they are going or why. Now they blame gamers for the kinect failures? Cheapo blame gamers

        Like

    • Nick Peck

      You only see things in small pieced obviously and don’t seem to understand how things work very well, but that’s ok. They simply held off on the kinect stuff because EVERYONE was expecting another Kinect E3 which they didn’t do. They held the Kinect games and other things off for the next few shows they will be at over the next several months. They had a few things at E3 but they stuck to the big guns for the main show.

      Also, did you know that pretty much all of the launch games are done already? I’m sure there are a few that will take it to the absolute deadline, but it takes months to stamp several million discs, test them, print the inserts, assemble, shrink wrap, pack it all up and ship them out to 20+ countries to be ready by launch. All of this doesn’t happen in a week, it takes months. Forza 5 has been done for a bit now and they can’t add anymore code to the disc.

      There will be plenty of things for the Kinect I’m sure, but I’m more interested in the other uses for it like the Mic and what not.

Isn’t it just easier to use my phone or iPad and search with it, instead of using it to control my Xbox to search? Without motion games, the kinect is useless. It’s jacking up the price of Xbox one, and gamers aren’t getting anything from the camera that is compelling at all.

      Sad thing is, is there are no “exclusives” worth buying for the ps4 at launch. The only good games coming for it are 3rd party games that the XBO will have as well. Killzone looks kinda pretty, but is totally generic. Explosions don’t even leave marks on the geometry lol. Knack is the same way sadly. Not saying they will be bad games or anything, but with the lack of detail I don’t care for either of those games.

      I actually was getting both systems but I just cancelled the ps4 for now, but I will get one down the road once the games I really would like to play come out. Second Son looks great, but there isn’t anything else I want on that system until the middle of next year.

        Wrong, i am a 360 user, saddened by M$ money grubbing. I can live with always online to combat piracy, but i cant live with M$ trying to hide the hardware specs of the xbone, mean while trying to sell it at a higher price. I’ll go where ever the better hardware is at. I am no fan of any brand, just of quality hardware, of which the xbone is lacking.

        PS3 been more powerful is an overstatement. It was only about 10% per cent more more powerful than the X box 360. And both the x box 360 and ps3 had the same memory clocks clock ( about 524mb each) Sony took a extra year to release the PS3 also and gaming developers also claim the PS3 was harder to develop games for.

        This generation will be different. PS4 will likely release before the XB1 and both next gen consoles are using similar PC architecture

        Actually your wrong the CPU of the PS4 is power powerful 1.84 Teraflops the XB1 is only 1.2 Teraflops. So the PS4 is 40% more powerful this generation on paper.

        Also the PS4 Memory is GDDR5 this runs at 5MHZ with 7GB reserved for games 1 GB left for the OS

        The XB1 uses DDR3 (system ram) runs at 2MHZ WITH 5GB reserved for gaming.

        So there is a clear difference in memory between both consoles this generation. PS4 is twice as fast.

        1.84 teraflops theoretical peak performance not cpu. in case you didnt know the ps3 and xbox 360 had the same difference in that case.
        when i said that the xbox one cpu could be better it was that ms said they think the esram was stronger then previously thought. also the specs are subject to change prior launch.(i.e the xbox 360) so you might want to wait till release.
        remember the esram incorporated with that 8 gigs of ddr3. you didnt mention it.
        their is no doubt the ps4 is more powerful but how much of difference you think will it make?
        its not 2 time faster. but the price is a major issue.

      Exactly. One can buy a decent PC computer for 500 to 600 Euros. Why pay 500 for XB1 when its primary goal is to play games?

      The XB1 is a decent console, but is it worth paying another 100 for? The PS4 is a fantastic alternative to XB1. It is 100 Euros cheaper and it has better hardware specs for gaming. Even Microsoft Devs on reddit have said the PS4 has the better hardware specs!

    Dear Mr. Hryb,

    As by now it should have come to your attention that the comments section of this site is a mess where people throwing direct insults are becoming more and more prevalent.

    I would suggest putting up a link towards the Xbox forums where people can file complaints and prove that they are indeed Xbox customers, like many commenters here now very clearly aren’t. Their timestamped gamerscore will do the talking there. This has always been a great blog for discussion about Xbox and even off-topic discussions around your shows have been great, but ever since the Disqus implementation where people can just spam without visible gamertags, it’s gone downhill.

    Furthermore I would suggest more moderation in the comments of your blog. I know you hate censorship, as do I, but phrases like “You should die in a cancer fire” are absolutely inexcusable. I’d simply handle the “three strikes and you’re out” principle and in certain cases like this one, just permanently ban without remorse as the culprit in this case has already proven he can’t behave.
    You have my sympathy for being caught in a fanboy war, when in most cases you are just the messenger, but letting this slide reflects poorly on Microsoft as well if this continues.

    Kind Regards,

    Robin

      in 2010 I got a ps3 and saw a lot of potential

      in 2011 i got PSN+ and saw that XBL gold was terrible for consumers

      in 2012 PSN+ got even better, meanwhile xbox still hasn’t shown anything worth playing with rehashes of halo and gears and forza.

      in 2013 the last of us game out and now only showed sony knows what they are doing but they aren’t going to abandon their console half way through the gen. what was the last good exclusive retail game from MS that wasn’t halo gears or forza? i mean… banjo kazooie nuts and bolts back in like 2008? don’t even mention fable as that has completely died this gen since every 360 fable game was worse than the original. that is the problem with 360 and it’s why people are leaving in huge numbers

      as I’ve said for like a year now. sony has continually brought out quality titles, including new IPs. given value to consumers with PSN+ and with the ps4 are poised to completely dominate the competition. Exclusives sell systems and since the showing of exclusives for the 360 have been extremely dry the last 4-5 years gamers aren’t picking xbox.

        Xbox one uses the same SOC from AMD as the PS4, With a smaller GPU. You dont have to take my word for it, I’ve given you the website where you can go read the facts for yourself. If you arent willing to go look it up, dont try convincing us other wise, the facts always speak for themselves.

    The Intellivision had a better memory layout and faster processor while the 2600 could only load about 1 line worth of image with its ridiculous memory amount.
    The SMS had true 8-bit graphics and FM sound, while the NES had marginal 8-bit graphics and minimal RAM.
    The N64 had true 3-D buffering, antialiasing and imperceptible loading times, the PS used a slow 1X CD, only 1MB of RAM and less polygon processing.
    In the end, the success or failure of all video game systems depend in factors such as marketing, licensing exposure, price (not always) and most important GAMES. So stop trying to bury this system and try to convert more people into PlayStation-ism with all the geeky-tech-y, mumbo-jumbo. Games are what define a system, never forget that. Neither have a really good offer. I’m not saying the XBO will win because it’s weak, but you can’t say the PS4 is the winner because is powerful, either. The way they deal with ALL of the stuff that involves the market and above all, the consumer, is what will decide who the winner is, not the hardware.

They had 8 years since the launch of 360 to get ready for this, if they dont have the goods yet, then they are not only not committed to it, but also neither will they lure devs into committing to it.

      I’ll do as I please. Not you nor anyone else is going to convince me to stop telling it like it is. I like video games, I like video games with good graphics. PS4 gives more of what I want, at a better price. Xbox IP’s like halo and gears have become stagnant. Devs have more power on PS4 to make better games with. Not just hardware wise, but in a less costly, more user friendly environment than xbox one. Making devs happy, = better games. Its not about who wins or loses, that is those corporations problem. Its about who is giving consumers what they want. M$ doesnt want to hear about how much they are not giving me what i want in a gaming console? Well thats their problem, isolating themselves from the community is what got them in this mess in the first place. I would have picked, which ever console was the better gaming system. If kinect had been amazing, it might have made me consider xbox one even though it is less capable. But it wasnt. It wasnt even close, i didnt see one thing that compelled me to own it. I didnt see one motion game at E3. Not one. Even though Ryse was being advertised as a motion game, 2 years ago, it didnt even turn up using the camera in the end. It should have been ready for the big show. It wasnt, and that shows me how much microsoft cares about gamers. That and their many derogatory comments toward the community, they can take that attitude, and their half assed kinect, and stuff it
