  1. Good. Now I can play FFVII and all the other crazy march and April games and cyberpunk can arrive even more awesome

    You don't need xbox hardware as ultimate game pass gets you access to all the pc games too. I use it exclusively for pc atm

    Bloody hell a plague tale already? Gold bless game pass

  5. I don't know why this point is being argued when it happened with the Wii U. Clear product identity is crucial in retail
  6. Does it matter if a company isn't part of another companys trade show? The end effect is they get a big stage and stream stuff to you - I guess some companies want to do that on their own terms rather than what tradition set out years ago. Nintendo broke it a while ago by ditching the live show and its working for them so I don't see why a company can't move their live show to another part of the year? If MS left and did the same I wouldn't see the controversy either - the only people who lose out from this are presumably the ESA? In the age of the internet and live streaming you don't need every console giant under one roof swinging their dicks out - just tune in when they have their shows and it'll save you staying up till 3am watching the Bethesda BS conference too!
  7. Bloodborne came out in March 2015? PS4 launched Nov 13

  9. PC game minimum specs only go back so far. But they do go back quite a bit and if you knock down a game to insanely low settings - they will look pretty horrible in some cases because the devs know the ultra low specs are likely a small use case - most of their userbase will likely fall somewhere in the middle between extremely low and high end hardware. Here is (likely an extreme) example with the Witcher 3 - do you think MS will allow the base xbox one version of a game to go out like this? PC minimum specs and what MS will allow will be two entirely different worlds But this is also the reason sometimes exclusive console games can beat PC visuals handily with equivalent hardware. The PS4 pro is nothing special for example - it has the GPU power of what... a GTX 970? But look at games like God of War running on it - it would be impossible for anything near a GTX 970 level system to run something that well and it likely is because the devs have a smaller set range of one CPU and two GPUS and that's it. I'm sure the wider that range goes the harder it gets to really focus on higher end effects because the gameplay and core visual experience needs to have a set foundation working between hardware from 2013 to seven years onwards and beyond. Like with everything in computing and development there is a compromise somewhere and that grows the wider that gap needs to be.
  10. Microsoft are unique in the fact that they're not xbox. They're currently xbox/PC - every exclusive of theirs is only console exclusive. It means I never need to buy their hardware but I'm still completely tied into their software ecosystem (got ultimate game pass until Nov 2022). I'd love it if Sony follow suit but I think to the japanese companies hardware and software is tied priorities for them

    The logo is an identical match for the celeste mountain logo so hard to imagine it is anything else
  12. I LOVE the hardware design. It is brave to leave behind the old boring (admittedly practical for AV unit owners) flat box. I won't personally be getting it due to the amazing way MS support their games on PC and PC game pass but love the way they went with it. The name? Same font and having a Xbox name with an X? Is that not risking confusion?

    I dont disagree with any of that in theory but I can't see any dev using the servers yet as anything other than fairly mid to high range pcs to run a small number of standard games. The main advantage would be in multi player as already discussed or bypassing console restrictions such as fps a la destiny 2 I guess it is whether you have faith if Google will take that further without having the sales or user base to really ramp it up. I hope they do as any USP other than you get access to nice hardware with no worrying about installs or patches with minimal lag would be actually differentiating.

    There appears to be confusion of whether you can connect to stadia and tap into resources beyond a fixed hardware set The key example is when crackdown 3 was originally announced and MS said it would tap into their azure servers for processing power beyond the specification of the hardware you were playing on Just because you're connecting to a piece of hardware remotely doesn't mean you get access to beyond that hardware
