Title: XBOX COMMUNITY!!!!!!!!!!!!
Post by: Slayer on Sep 05, 2014, 02:13 AM
talk about what you like, or dont like, about the xbox one. It doesnt matter as long as your just being honest and not trolling.

lets start. What's your favorite released xbox one exclusive and what's your favorite upcoming xbox one exclusive?

Post by: ethomaz on Sep 05, 2014, 02:15 AM
I like how you can have all the games liked to one Live account and so you can just change the Region of the account, buy a game in this place, back to your region and play it... so you can buy games from virtually any place with a credit card.

I like the fact that saving a clip on the X1 doesn't rip me out of the game and into the Share UI. This isn't so much a problem on the PS4 during single player games but during multiplayer it's a pain in the dog and sometimes the UI takes too dang long to load if there is a lot going on.

As far as exclusives, Titanfall would probably be my favorite so far but I have it on PC. The X1's upcoming lineup really doesn't appeal to me. I don't know enough about Scalebound to be excited about it but it does have my curiosity. Considering that I'm a Halo fan, Halo 5 definitely has my attention.

Haven't played any of the exclusives, but am getting the white xbox one sunset overdrive bundle on Oct. 28th.   Will be playing that, ryse, halo master chief collection, forza horizon 2, project spark, and some downloadable games.  As they come out I will get quantum break, halo 5, crackdown, fable legends(sill not sure about that one though), and probably scalebound and phantom dust

You know what Nnodley... screw you. You've had a PS4 for how long and how many of us have you played with? How in the hell are you even going to have time to play all those games on a second console during school when you couldn't even be bothered to jump into a single game with us this year? You haven't even ever joined a party chat invite I've sent you. Punk dog.

Sunset Overdrive looks like a lot of fun. I hope MS has a big marketing push for it when it comes close to release, because I love Insomniac and even though it's not a PlayStation game I still hope they do well.

Never been a fan of racing games, so Forza Horizon does nothing to me honestly...Driveclub does nothing either in case you were wondering, only reason I have it in my signature is because the game looks good graphically speaking.

Excited to see what Scalebound is, hopefully we get gameplay footage soon.

Also I kind of like EA access and wish it was on PS4. My dads brother loves Fifa so if I was subbed to that we could get Fifa 14...Plus I'm a fan of the Battlefield series so BF4 would be awesome. Also NFS is usually a good time so I would give Rivals a shot. Really don't give a dang about Madden/Football games though.

Will it make you feel better if I play destiny with you?!?!(or we could bang and makeup) :-p  I game way too much than i should during school and I'm going to find the right balance this semester.  As for not playing online with any of you this summer, well let's just say that I may say I want to play more online MP, but once the time to turns up I tend to not want to and always enjoy playing single player stuff instead.  I'm just into SP more than MP.  And believe me I will want to play all those games, but a few will probably never be finished.  I've already given up on my ps3 backlog and some ps4 games I've never completed. 

I'll leave my ps4 in our upstairs room that way I'm away from my parents to play destiny.  It's usually in the living room and when I get invites and they are home, I usually ignore the invites.  Don't take it personal though! 

AND YOUR THE PUNK dog, PUNK dog!!

for mp an easy way to do that is to set up the recording session at the start of a match by double tapping the share button it will start recording at that point and not take you out of the game.

Released: Dead Rising 3
Upcoming: Sunset Overdrive and Fable Legends

I don't know for sure but you can change the PS4 setthings to record and save without need to open the screen... just pressing the Share button.

I like the "magic" of kinect. When you do it for the first time, it's amazing.

Then it falls to a gimmick really fast. I like Kinect as a side dish, not the main course. Auto login is great.

Post by: ethomaz on Sep 07, 2014, 01:17 AM

I think to move your body to control a game is an amazing ideia... Wiimote and Move needs to use an object to have you move tracked... so Kinect is years ahead in motion capture.

Like I think Sony is ahead in terms of Virtual Reality right now.

I think both Kinect and PS Move have limitations that can't really be overcome at least without getting awkward.   
Kinect's limitation - no buttons/(More importantly no analog stick). 
PS Move's limitation - you have to hold something.

I was planning on getting an Xbox One a while back, but given how my gaming activity has decreased to an all time low and me using my budget for other things...i decided to hold out. Not to mention that the exclusives so far does not compel me to purchase an Xbox One.

This year though the exclusives coming are must buys! Tomb Raider especially :)

A user on a pretty big sports gaming forum claims that MS and T2 are going to bring NFL 2K16 exclusively to X1 and Windows 10 this july, game's supposedly completely blowing Madden out of the water.

It's not worth buying an Xbox One for. Unless you also want to play the other exclusive id advise against it. Mine has been collecting dust. And I didn't find the current list of exclusive any Good. I think it will be less than 6 months for TR. I wouldn't be surprised to see it come as early as February.

Confirmed? Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 may end Xbox exclusivity deal - NeoGAF (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1056979)

Is Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 about to break the trend of Xbox priority DLC?
 The Xbox brand has always been considered the home of Call of Duty. Each year’s game would get demoed on a Microsoft stage, all advertisements would carry the Xbox logo, and DLC would always come first to Xbox consoles – and enjoy a 30-day exclusivity period.
 It looks like things are going to be a bit different this year. The UK Xbox One page shows a number of AAA games, some are due this year, others next year. If you look at the game covers, there’s a green box that either says “exclusive game” or “content first,” depending on the game.
 The Division for instance is not an exclusive game, but will get early-access to content on Xbox.
 If you look at the Black Ops 3 thumbnail however, there’s nothing there.

How do you figure Xbox is 2 out of 3? Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin came out the year they were acquired by Microsoft. Max came out in 2013. Tentacles: Enter the Mind and Kalimba both came out last year. Kalimba and Max were on Xbox consoles. Both of the Tentacles titles did not.

Not 2 out of 3, but 2 or 3.  
2 is this way.
Xbox - Max, Kalimba

I was thinking about that last night. Tomb Raider isn't something the typical Xbox gamer goes for. With Halo 5 coming out less than a month earlier, Forza 6 a couple months before, and with other games like Call of Duty, Battlefront, Metal Gear Solid, and Assassin's Creed releasing between September and November.... ouch. I really can't see RotTR selling well, relatively speaking, this holiday season.

It makes me wonder what is going through Square's mind right now. Kagari is right in that Square is screwed. The company didn't expect Uncharted 4's delay which puts the PS4 ROTR's spring release in an awkward situation. It also looks like Square did not expect this holiday season to be super packed. It would be smart to delay XBO ROTR to January/February 2016 and PS4 ROTR to June 2016, but I guess that is not what Microsoft wants...

RotTR should sell great. It's basically exclusive and is a very different game than Halo 5, or anything else coming this holiday that we know of.

Pretty much.  Like the game would probably have been fine without Halo being released.  Better question is, WTF is Microsoft thinking?  Spending that much money on a third party title, just to send Halo to slaughter it.  

@Legend I don't think you realize why people buy Halo.  It's for the multiplayer; between that and Call of Duty there's no room for Tomb Raider. Doesn't help that historically at best. the franchise sold "alright" on Microsoft's platforms.  There's nothing to really support 2 million.  Especially if the 360 only managed to push 2 million copies, at discounted prices, against less competition.  Xbox One isn't the 360, the majority of Xbox One owners are probably XBox fanatics.  Those same fanatics who buy Halo and Call of Duty almost exclusively.

Very good exclusive line up for xbox one at the end of this year. All big titles. I'll be surprised if they add any more to that list, considering how early MS announce games now.

But look at Halo 4's stats...
You're ignoring that he mentioned COD though. Its a treyarch year so I expect many will stay hooked on the multiplayer for a long time, most will still be playing when ROTR comes out. Hardcore halo fans will be playing halo and most other FPS fans will be playing blops 3 or battlefront a bit later. This will definitely hurt Tomb Raider, hopefully not too much.

In somewhat related news, Halo 5 has a dynamic resolution similar to what Wolfenstein, Killzone:Mercenary, and Dead Rising (originally) used. Means the game will rarely if ever drop a frame from 60fps, but during intense action things might get slightly blurry.

They're more or less recompiling each game with a recompiler.  Then tweaking the recompiled to make sure the game works well enough.  Kinda like what Bleem did with their emulator on Dreamcast.  It's why Bleem was doing one game at a time.  Sony could do something similar but it's not worth it at this time.

Well it wasn't that odd if you're thinking like MS. They try to take over ever market they enter. Plus they been trying to shove windows phone down every one troughs for years now and they just don't get the hint. So what do they do? Double down on one windows for everything. It's like "WTF" nobody wants their phone to be the same as their pc or their xbox. They don't get what the market really want's. The only thing I think they got right was the surface. Surface is a really nice product but they price them self's right out of the market. 1200? Walks over to a normal labtop with the same specs selling for 500. They are not apple and never will be. They can not take a shame in a box and expect people to eat it up. People be like "hey, that's shame, in a box".

I think he was sent to force Nokia to use Windows Mobile.  The part of taking them down probably isn't true.  Them going down is the consequence of Nokia being forced into Windows Mobile though.  Though buying Nokia for cheap would give Microsoft access to manufacturing processes and patents.  Maybe Balmer was planning to relaunch Windows Mobile before he left.

Depends what you are counting.
360 is analogous to 0.  
But 360 is once around the circle.  

In radians e^(i*1/2 tau*2)=e^(1/2 tau*i*0)
2pi radians=360 degrees
0 radians = 0 degrees


Just to be fair.  ;)

If 360 represents a static scene, yeah it's 0,360,720,-360, whatever.

Quote from:  Phil Spencer @ China Joy 2015
"My strategy is more around our own first party franchises, and investing in franchises that we own, and probably fewer exclusive deals for third party content. I want to have strong third party relations, but paying for many third party exclusives isn't our long term strategy. This year, the fact that we're shipping Halo 5, Gears of War, Forza 6, Fable, we can only do that and build that best line-up we've ever seen really on the back of franchises that we own. It's great to have Tomb Raider as part of our line-up, but investing in first party, you'll see more of that at gamescom next week, is really core to our strategy."

They've stagnated way too long.  Other than rushed Forza games, Microsoft more or less has nothing ready internally.  They're trying to ramp up production, but I don't think Microsoft understands that you can only milk a franchise for so long.  hopefully they can get their stuff together, but I doubt they will.  They're going to rush out Gears.  Fable is a zombie franchise at this points and needs to be put to pastor.  Rare's MMO looks terrible (Emphasis on looks cause it may end up alright).  Only thing that looks good to me is Halo 5.  But even then, they're abandoning the reclaimer trilogy they were planning didn't they?  They created/bought a bunch of development studios just to be re-purposed or shut them down.  What's going to happen 2 years from now after Forza 6 sells less than Forza 5 and Gears 4 is a flop?  I know I'm making bold statements here.  They're not diversifying themselves.  When they realize they actually do need new IPs, it's going to be near the end of the gen and they're either going to release nothing for Xbox One till the end of the gen after Gears 4 and launch a new console, or they're going to launch a new console with no software ready (Just like they did with Xbox One).

I dunno if MS is able to recapture the audience enough to justify continuing the brand then they could do some really cool stuff... The original vision of Xbox One I really had no problem with as I only buy digital games anyways, but it was very bad PR and too far ahead of its time... also hdmi input was not a good selling point...

I think MS has some really cool stuff in store if they knew what they were doing...
regardless great games coming out that will be a ton of fun to play and that's what really matters for those that have the console

Interesting analysis on Crackdown.  Seems like the physics are still calculated locally with debris calculated on the cloud:

its a bit of a copout, the hitbox data (force/location/angle) is sent to the server which runs debris calculation on a simplified mesh, the result is then delivered to the client , geometry isnt dissapearing in the video, its simply the switch between local physics calculation and the server based debris data with the simplified meshes.


 put simply, the initial destructions handled by the xbox one, the server just calculates debris based on a low poly instance of the game world.

Price of bundle = price of games + price of Live + price of Xbox One
Solving for One, we get less than 300$.  
that is backwards thinking you do not pay less than $399 for everything... you are not paying less than the cost of purchase for the bundle...
bundle_savings != lower_price(x||y||z)
bundle_savings == total RSP - bundle_price
"For just " bundle_price "you get " total_RSP " worth of products!"
"A savings of " bundle_savings "!"

price of any part of bundle != bundle_price - bundle_savings

you do not know where they are cutting that extra cost from... most likely since all other xbox ones are selling for $349 the extra $50 is where the lump sum of the extras come from which bought seperately would be at most $180 but MS doesn't really have to pay itself for a year of XBL gold subscription so it would be more like $120 (their costs)
Halo MCC 28.12 @walmart for physical copy 49.99 @ best buy
assasins creed unity is $19.99 at target and gamestop....

so the only thing you're really getting for free with this deal is the XBL subscription and saving gas

regardless it is a decent bundle not great but decent and highly favorable if you want one or both of those games.

However, saying you get the xbox one for whatever price less than you are getting the bundle for is erroneous as you are not paying for the device by itself separately for less than $399.

This is very convoluted. We're just evaluating the value of an XBO with 1TB of memory. Best way we can do this is by subtracting the costs of the bundled games and 1 year of Live Gold. Based off of Amazon's pricing, total value of MCC, Unity, and Live Gold is ~$106, meaning that a 1TB XBO has a value of $293.

The cheapest XBO package consumers can get is the MCC bundle (500GB XBO + MCC), which costs $349. Subtracting the cost of MCC, the value of a 500GB XBO is ~$321. This is the part where it's backwards because the 1TB XBO is cheaper in the context of the bundle Microsoft is offering at its store.

Things like this completely depend on how you want to look at the problem.  

What am I saving from getting this bundle?  
Well, I'm saving say 50$.  
Why that'd be like getting one of the following
-getting an Xbox One for 299$
-getting two free games
-getting free Xbox Live for a year

We could construct 3 equivalent scenarios from the bundle.

-Man walks into a store and buys the bundle, leaves the store with 400$ less than when he went in.
-Man walks into a store, buys a 299$ Xbox One, 2 games and XBL, and leaves the store with 400$ less than when he went in.
-Man walks into a store, buys a 349$ Xbox One, 2 free games and XBL, and leaves the store with 400$ less than when he went in.
-Man walks into a store, buys a 349$ Xbox One, 2 games and free XBL, and leaves the store with 400$ less than when he went in.

Understandably, there is no flexibility with the bundle, as he can't walk away with a 299$ XBO, but regardless of that, in all situations, provided he buys the same things, the result is identical.  
If one wants to look at the glass half full vs half empty or vice versa, as long as they are identical scenarios, one should be able to look at the scenario any way they like.

that is bad / erroneous math... the price of the xbox does not change in this situation... again you have no idea where they are cutting the cost for the bundle.

the main point is you cannot purchase just one part of this bundle separately with a new value you assign to it via your funky math.

No one is buying the bundle for a sum of its separate parts at lowered prices. The total bundle is "X" and they are a combined package which cannot be bought separately outside of this bundle for their bundled pricing. You do not know what costs MS is eating or from what. We only know (at best guess) that purchasing all of these separately would be "C" which is more than "X". The only factual data you can extract from that is a consumer value in regards to savings. Which would be C - X = S

You cannot then go back and say X - S = C1 as there is not enough factual data to state what cost of  C1.2...n are at all. In this situation Microsoft knows the cost of each item for them, but that does not equal the cost of each item to the consumer as MS still wants to make a profit so we do not pay their prices. We do not know how much money they are eating or potentially losing on the bundle if any at all.

We can say that we know that separately the sum of C1.2...n = C, but that sum does not change because of the savings the consumer enjoys because of a bundle deal. You cannot reassign value to any of those items only MS can do that, which they do as "X" in a bundle deal. However, this does not mean at all EVER ANYWHERE that any parts of the whole now have different value anywhere else.

MS could say they are discounting this or that in the bundle (ie: save $100 off xbox with this deal, or buy this and we'll give you 'that' for free). This, however, still does not mean that there is a price drop on the xbox one now because of this bundle or you can get any of those items for free outside of the bundle.

You can only factually extrapolate the Consumer Savings of the cost of the sum of the parts in the bundle versus separately.

Saying "it's like only paying 293 for an xbox one" is incorrect as you are not paying for it separately and cannot buy it for that price outside of the bundle (save for maybe craigslist or ebay...) the bundle does not rewrite the cost of the xbox one for the consumer outside of the bundle. Assuming you are only paying 'e' for it is not possible to know unless MS actually comes out and says it.

Overall it is just bad and erroneous math to revalue something that has no reason or purpose to be revalued as part of the bundle as it only exists in that situation, and effectively is meaningless data even if true (which can only be proven by MS and is only best guess by us). The only meaningful data is the cost difference to the consumer as a whole to whole comparison.

In all honesty i think they are effectively giving the other stuff away for free, but I would still have to pay $399 to get the free stuff making the free value I've give to the other stuff effectively meaningless. I cannot get the free stuff for free separately and only works as an incentive to buy the bundle. By no means does it at all mean that the extra stuff is only worth $0... it is still worth its MSRP there is no new value magically given to it by bad math that makes it worth less. Much unlike the math being used to reassign MSRP...

Things like this completely depend on how you want to look at the problem.

it is "like" is not a factual statement it's an opinion.... none of the options mean the value of anything has changed separately and trying to use such "perceived" data would be erroneous

*Long post*
That... really doesn't make sense. In fact, that doesn't make any sense at all. My "funky math" is simple arithmetic. I take a number and subtract from it. Easy as that and it doesn't require 10 paragraphs to explain why -__-"

You're still getting a 1TB XBO for "less". Here's a simpler example. Let's say that a standalone 1TB XBO costs $399. So a $399 1TB XBO vs. a 1TB XBO + two games + 1 year of Live Gold for $399. One package is definitely better than the other because you're getting a lot more value from one than the other. Here's another example. A 1TB XBO + two games for $399 vs. a 1TB XBO + two games + 1 year of Live Gold for $399. Which one is better? Definitely the latter because you get a year of Live Gold whereas you don't get it from the former.

Consumers, especially Americans, are price conscious. They want the best deal and how can they find the best deal? Evaluating each bundle qualitatively is difficult because a lot of subjectivity goes into play. Quantitative evaluation is the better method as numbers are objective and less time consuming. How can the consumers quantitatively evaluate? By subtracting the costs of the extras from the total price tag.

that is the backwards part...

subtract the cost of the total price tag from the sum of their parts, which is how you know how much money you are saving...

itemizing the savings per item is pointless as you only save on the total package, and you would have to also know first what the saving value is by doing what I said first.

Total cost - bundle cost = savings
you do not need to go back and then subtract the savings from the bundle cost to say you are only paying x for this or that, that is useless data.

If I buy a chromecast and it's bundled with $20 google play credit for the same price, that does not mean i'm getting the chromecast for $20 off...

If one bundle I attribute the value of the xbox (using your logic) to ~$299, and another bundle where (using your same logic) the value of the Xbox is $399 which one has better value?

Again, you're only repeating what you said before, only this time, you're doing it in fewer paragraphs. Look at my examples again. It's really simple and not so difficult to understand. I don't really understand what you're getting at other than that you want to be contrarian for the sake of being contrarian. Your comments basically say, "I don't like this method of analysis. Therefore, it's wrong."

Seriously, quantitatively evaluating values of bundles by subtracting the costs of the games, subscriptions, or peripherals from the price tag is simple. I don't know why you have such a problem with this method when no one else does.

T - B = S

 X + A + H + G - B = S
X = S + B - A - H - G

X! = X - S || B - S

data numbers rounded for convenience...
X = 400
G = 60
A = 20
H = 50
B = 400
/\ T = 530
/\ S = 130
/\ X = B + S - (A+G+H) :: 530-130 = 400...

We aren't even disagreeing with you.  
Yes, you can look at the situation that way, but you can look at it in several other ways that are equally valid.  

Using the logic, of 399$ vs 299$ then obviously the 299$ is a better deal.  There's no confusion about this whatsoever.

Here's a different approach for the 1TB XBO + MCC + Unity + 1 YR XBL for $399 vs. 500GB XBO + MCC for $349 faceoff:

Usually, the SKU with larger storage is $50 more expensive than the standard SKU. So, for instance, if the 500GB XBO costs $349, then the 1TB XBO will cost $399. With this line of reasoning, a 1TB XBO + MCC bundle will cost $50 more than a 500GB XBO + MCC bundle. However, the 1TB XBO is also bundled with Unity and 1 year of XBL Gold.

On top of that, the Halo series is known for its multiplayer, but you need an XBL Gold subscription to play online. The 1TB XBO bundle already covers that need, but the 500GB XBO bundle does not. You have to shell out another $60 on top of the $349 price tag, bringing the total costs to $409. You'll end up spending $10 more for 500GB less storage and one less game.

As you see, completely different approach, but we still come to the same conclusion.

Then theyre both the same deal.  Then that's not using the same logic.  
You can look at the situation any way you want, but you have to be consistent.
In my HS chemistry class it was very much the same.  You could use any scale you wanted but you had to use the same scale throughout.

that is a logical approach and see no issue with it at all and completely agree with the method used above.

Comparatively I am saying devaluing any part of the bundle to attribute a new cost based solely on that bundle is useless data, and redundant...

For example using the above bundles as an example we can devalue the xbox one to say $270 and $300($330) (generous and minimal amounts for MCC for range)  this does not give us a true estimate of savings to savings which one could say is $30 ~ $60

However, in this situation the actual value difference would be $80 or more (cost of Unity and XBL sub added to second bundle becoming $430, plus $50 difference in cost of 1TB vs. 500GB) However, you were able to come to this conclusion without the extra step of devaluing the xbox one in the quoted text! making this data redundant and not very useful at all as a metric of value for the consumer.

If you're devaluing something for comparison, you absolutely have to devalue the same thing.

I understand having "legacy" tracks that don't support it. It should be a black and white "these are old, they don't work. These are new, they do work" thing though. Having a guide for which tracks support which effects just makes it way more confusing and way more stingy feeling, even if it results in more tracks supporting new features.

Doesn't matter, if the two games made the same track, I'd bet the DC could render the same track at 60 fps and keep the high level of detail.

There's a lot less going in forza tracks than dc. People seem to forget that.

Installing games on PS4 has some pretty nifty software and hardware things to make it go fast. I wouldn't be surprised if it's just impractical for the current xbo to catch up. Bet they'll have to fix it in a slim version.

Streaming and installing simultaneously could be possible but would be a freaking pain to program. Plus it'd greatly increase install times.

Well This car power band is all over the place. I normally don't us TC as it slows me down. I'd have to have a really nice set of pedals and then spend the time to learn where this car wants to break it wheels, and that's about 1-4 gear at odd times.

If they go 299 I'd say XB1 should win by a fair margin again. If they don't, its anyone's game. PS4 needs to drop to 349, whatever microsoft decide to do.

I highly doubt it. The last thing you want to do is condition consumers to expect an annual $50 price cut. Not to mention, last year, going from a $399 standalone console to a $349 package of a console + 2 games is a huge leap in value. There is very little chance MS will match that kind of jump even with a $50 price cut unless they want to eat big losses. MS can't do a temporary price cut either because XBO sales tanked at the beginning of January. When you cut the price, you can't go back.

Well that bundle isn't very impressive at all. If that's what it sells at during November I don't think it will do too well. I guess the others will have similar value, so we won't see below 349 and if we do see 349 it'll only be one game. November will be PS4's to lose if this is the case. I'm sure BF deals will be amazing though.

It needs to be more short-term than the price cut MS had last holiday season, in my opinion.

On one side, they can try to ride out the $349 entry price (with a Black Friday discount) throughout the holiday season, but risk losing to the PS4. On the other, they can do a holiday season-wide price cut again, but risk a large drop in sales beginning January.

If I were MS, I would try to find that sweet spot in between the two scenarios. Have a price cut that increase sales, but not for such a long duration that will lead to a massive sales decrease.

Think that bundle is much much better than the other one.
1 brand new game vs 34 small old games + 1 small newish game.

Wonder who will win!

That bundle isn't going to push many xbox ones. I think it only provides good value for those who wanted one anyway.

Post by: Legend on Sep 29, 2015, 04:17 PM
That bundle is lame!

Sunset Overdrive, Ryse, Dead Rising 3, Forza 5, Titanfall, and MCC would have made a cooler collection. Pack in all the old games and make it feel like a starter pack.

Well, I have some clue. I think MS may have gone too big last holiday and lost a load of money in xbox ones. Investors weren't happy, this year they're not dropping the price so much. That's one possibility.

So gears is 40, rare replay is 20 and ori is 15. So really it's only 15 dollars over the price of a new game. Doesn't seem that great to me.

 Microsoft moves Xbox into new "More personal computing" segment - NeoGAF (http://neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1118160)

Quote
Microsoft recently announced a shake up in the company. Today they confirmed their reporting is changing. They will change the reporting of their financial results to reflect the company's strategy and ambitions to build best-in-class platforms and productivity services for a mobile-first, cloud-first world. Beginning in fiscal year 2016, the company will report revenue and operating income based on three operating segments:Productivity and Business Processes The Productivity and Business Processes segment includes results from Office and Office 365 for commercial and consumer customers, as well as Dynamics and Dynamics CRM Online.Intelligent Cloud The Intelligent Cloud segment includes results from public, private and hybrid server products and services such as Windows Server, SQL Server, System Center, Azure, and Enterprise Services.More Personal Computing The More Personal Computing segment includes results from licensing of the Windows operating system, devices such as Surface and phones, gaming including Xbox consoles, and search. What this means is that Xbox has gone from it's own division over a decade ago to now being lumped into the same segment as Windows. That really shows how Microsoft has changed as a company to focus on Cloud and Office.  Just FYI, this doesn't change much in regards to Xbox. Just makes it incredibly harder to see how the Xbox business is doing on its own but that's nothing new.http://news.microsoft.com/2015/09/28...g-structure-2/ (http://news.microsoft.com/2015/09/28/microsoft-announces-changes-to-financial-reporting-structure-2/)

It's happening. I'm telling you. Microsoft is making the moves. They are slowly making their console business fade away. It started the moment Nadella took over. The declaration that Xbox isn't important to the company. The shake ups in the division. A renewed effort towards PC gaming. Half their studios being shifted to AR and mobile development. HoloLens being their new pet project. The division being folded into others a few times now. A sharp decline in the number of new exclusives being announced for Xbox One. Look at the difference between PS4 and X1 for upcoming games:

List of Xbox One Exclusives - Gematsu (http://gematsu.com/exclusives/xbox-one)

List of PS4 Exclusives - Gematsu (http://gematsu.com/exclusives/ps4)

Even if you leave out the games not confirmed as coming West yet, the X1 is still getting demolished and Microsoft doesn't seem to be showing any signs of urgency. Nothing that makes me believe they care in the least bit that their upcoming lineup looks more barren than the Wii U's did this same time last year. Hell, the Wii U right now has more upcoming retail titles. It's only a matter of time before a consensus is reached that the Xbox One "has no games" and people avoid buying it. This is not a situation that a console brand with a bright future finds itself in. This is the situation you get from a console brand that is being strangled. Nadella has already shown that he won't hesitate to cut down a division into a shadow of itself, if not eliminate it entirely, if he feels Microsoft can't ever lead the market. Just like with Windows Phones, he's not into fighting losing battles. When this generation is over, if the Xbox division is anything more than software studios making games and applications for VR/AR, mobile, and PC then I'll be shocked.

Saying XBOX lacks exclusives is pretty hyperbolic. WW definitely, but for western audiences it's not that bad.


Crackdown (Microsoft)
Gears of War 4 (Microsoft)
Halo 5: Guardians (Microsoft)
Halo Wars 2 (Microsoft)
Quantum Break (Microsoft)
Rise of the Tomb Raider (Square Enix)
Sea of Thieves (Microsoft)
Scalebound (Microsoft)

Is still a solid list.

And that's exactly their problem. They spent all of last gen pumping out 3 or 4 games. They never really built a first party worth having your own console for.

Hyperbolic? Not with a list that small heading into Year 3 and dang sure not in comparison to the competition. Let's not forget that two of those games, one of which is timed, will be off the list by the end of the year. Quantum Break has been on that list for well over two years now. It would have been released already if Remedy didn't drag its feet all the time. Only three of those games are being developed by Microsoft owned studios. That number drops to two starting in November. At the rate Microsoft is announcing games, Xbox owners are going to be dragging their parched bodies into E3 2017 and begging Microsoft to just announce something already. I think you and I have very different opinions on what a solid list looks like. Starting in 2016, half that list will consist of a sequel for a hit or miss franchise, a sequel to a strategy game that was decent, a goofy looking pirate game made by a studio that is a shadow of what it used to be, and a game with dragons that Microsoft is trying really hard to convince us is so cool that it will convince Japanese gamers to buy Xbox One.

About 3 years ago on Chartz, I said the 360 would be a one-hit wonder. Quite a bold claim back then, but it may actually come true. While the XBO had a much better start, it cannot sustain that kind of performance for the long term. The moves Microsoft did last gen that made the 360 successful can only work for one gen:

- Halo, Gears, and Forza were relatively new last gen. However, we're seeing franchise fatigue with the latter two.

- The JRPG push MS made early in the 360's lifecycle managed to persuade Square Enix to turn FFXIII into a multiplat game. It was quite a blow to Sony and the PS3. However, even though the 360 had a major userbase advantage in the US along with MS having marketing rights to FFXIII and a special edition bundle, the PS3 version still sold more. Now, we're seeing several Japanese publishers skipping the XBO with the occasional multiplat (usually more western-oriented) here and there. Square Enix, especially, has given the XBO the shaft.

- MS had a major advantage with the Xbox Live last gen. Now? Not anymore. It was quite a novelty back in the Xbox days and MS really popularized it with the 360. However, that novelty factor no longer works and PSN may have surpassed it already.

- The novelty factor also applies to the Kinect, which was responsible for the 360's second spike in sales in its lifecycle. The prospects of hand-free motion control sounded cool... until it was released. Object scanning? Nope. Milo? Lol, nope.

LIST WARZ!

Let's look at 2014, 2015, and announced 2016 big exclusives from an XBOX gamer's point of view. Basically the games that the average XBOX ONE owner would care about.

XBO 2014
Titanfall
Project Spark
Forza Horizon 2
Kinect Sports Rivals
Sunset Overdrive
Halo MCC

XBO 2015
Fable Legends
Smite
Forza 6
Tomb Raider
World of Tanks
Halo 5

XBO 2016
Halo Wars 2
Sea of Thieves
Forza Horizon 3
Crackdown 3
Gears 4
Quantum Break
Scalebound

2016 is the best year to date. If you want to talk about future announcements, potential delays, and all the other problems that could manifest themselves then I totally agree with you. It's not growing as fast as the PS4's lineup. Excluding ports/remasters, it's 2014:5, 2015:5, 2016:7.

But for a Xbox One owner interested in exclusives, it's a solid year.

Post by: Raven on Sep 30, 2015, 06:00 AM
The point that I'm making, Legend, is that each year has seen fewer announced exclusives from Microsoft. Outside of the indie scene. Which is honestly still very small compared to Sony. This year they've announced four new games. ReCore, Gears of War 4, Sea of Thieves, and Halo Wars 2. Two of those games are from arguably fatigued franchises, one we know nothing about, and the other is from a lame studio. That's it. At a time when they should have had a lot more to reveal, that's all we got. Let me ask you this. What happens when all of those games currently on the list release next year? Woohoo! 2016 was a little better than the sparse years preceding it. But, if Microsoft doesn't have a ton of stuff next convention season to announce, where does that leave 2017 and 2018?

A question like that should not even be able to be asked before Year Two is even over yet it's a legit question when you look at the list of upcomings and consider the incredibly limited announcements we got this year. If the Xbox One was getting strong support the retail count wouldn't be about 5-to-1 like it is now, not including the games currently Japan-only. There is no reason to look at Year Three, see 6 or 7 games, and think that it's somehow good. That list of upcoming retails should be, at the very least, twice of what it is now. It's pretty hard to defend that list when it's less than what the Wii U had at around the same time. If the Xbox One is getting handfuls of games while PlayStation 4 is getting truck loads, what kind of image do you think that's going to create?

I think Microsoft's lack of announcements is indicative of a greatly scaled back effort on their part to support the platform. Though that kind of goes without saying since we know almost half their studios were set to work on non-Xbox One software. Hell, they pulled the plug on Phantom Dust after barely 6 months of actual development because they didn't want to spend any more than 5 million to revive the IP while expecting it to be a fully featured game with a 30-hour campaign AND multiplayer.

"Basically the games that the average XBOX ONE owner would care about."
If they're an Xbox One owner then who cares? They already bought the platform. We don't know the numbers on who has what tastes and what games they really want. That's all hindsight. However, the more options you offer the greater the likelihood is that you'll snag more than your competitor.

Now...

I'm just not understanding what the current available games and even those coming next year has to do with what my point was, which you seem to agree with. If your point was to say that, "Hey, Xbox One already has some exclusives worth counting" I don't really disagree with that. The problem is that people tend to care less and less about those games the further away you get from their release. That whole 'what have you done for me lately' mentality. Titanfall is a great example. It was all the rage when it released and within 6 months no one cared anymore. Making it worse is that once Titanfall 2 releases, the original will be almost entirely irrelevant and not even worth mentioning in a list war. Eventually we'll reach a point where people will acknowledge that X1 has, say, 20 or 30 games but then they'll look at PS4 which not only has more already available but more coming within 12 months AND the promise of even more down the road. That is the point in time where people will say, "Xbox One lacks exclusives".

The thing is Sony can easily counter this bundle by packaging Tearaway: Unfolded and/or Disney Infinity with the PS4. I wonder what Microsoft's last bundle will be? I guess Fallout 4.

If they don't announce some kind of Fallout 4 bundle for the holidays, I'd argue that they're iced. These bundles have all lacked hype factor and the price point to make up for it. I'm sure Microsoft will do a late hour price drop but these bundles initially won't move the way previous bundles have. What will make the situation even worse is if Sony does indeed do a general Western price drop.

Betting they'll do a 1 TB Halo 5 bundle for 399. They already have the limited collector's edition for 499.

I'm not even sure if a Fallout 4 bundle will help that much. The PS4 version has consistently been ahead of the XBO on Amazon. Plus, WRPGs have shown to do a lot better on the PS4 though Fallout 4 also has FPS qualities.

I don't think it would be a matter of outselling the PS4 version as much as it would be simply giving the Xbox One SOMETHING to work with because right now these bundles are not cutting it. If Microsoft markets the hell out of Fallout 4, which they haven't done yet, it could turn things around at least temporarily for their version of the game. The way things are looking, it's almost as if Microsoft is just going to kick Halo 5 out the door and hope it's enough.

True, either a 500GB for 349 or a 1TB for 399 then. Perhaps they'll throw in The Master Chief collection as well and call it the ultimate halo bundle, although looking at the value of these other bundles that seems unlikely.

 Xbox One Exclusive Scalebound Was Shelved Twice, Originally Starred a Little Girl - NeoGAF (http://neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1118844)

Quote
Quote
Speaking with GameSpot, Kamiya reiterated that this could be called his dream game and shared more details about the original pitch."If you look at the long span of it, the first idea (for Scalebound) was when we started the company and were thinking of ideas and games that we want to make," Kamiya said. "The idea popped up there, but then we made Bayonetta. Then after Bayonetta, we revived the idea and made a prototype but that prototype failed and the game got cancelled. It was put on a backburner for a variety of reasons and we moved on to The Wonderful 101. " Towards the end of development on The Wonderful 101, the studio began talking about what to do next. Kamiya revived and revised his pitch for Scalebound; the game as we know it today has been in development for about two years. But before that, the game was pitched as title for the Wii using motion controls and featured dinosaurs under the control of a little girl."When they first started, the idea was for a Wii game and we wanted to use a Wii remote to do the orders for the dinosaurs," Kamiya explained. "You were in control of the dinosaurs, you were ordering the dinosaurs around, and they'd do cool things. Then after we made Bayonetta, we started the prototype. The first thing that I made a change to was making it a dragon game."We changed the dinosaurs to dragons, but at that point the lead character was even weaker than (current protagonist) Drew is in the context of Scalebound," he continued. "She was actually a little girl who was with these dragons. As we were making this prototype, I realized that I didn't want to just be watching the fight, I wanted to be more participatory in the fight. And I started talking with the staff about how maybe we should change this to be a swordsman or someone a little bit older. This was when the prototype got put on the backburner, so to speak, and the project was halted. Then we made The Wonderful 101." Kamiya reiterated that he wants players to have an adventurous world to run around in, necessitating the more active dragons and the more aggressive, proactive character Drew--far different from a young child controlling the creatures and being a passive part of their struggle."The most fun for me is building out the dragon and then building the enemies of the dragon that's going to fight and you see them start fighting on the screen and seeing those battles play out," he said. "That's really what we wanted to do with the game from a core play perspective and being able to execute on that has been a lot of fun for me."

Think a ~70$ pricecut or a new bundle is necessary for black Friday. Otherwise it's a step back.  
The second option is a crazy amount of bundles.

which would only put it on par with last years bundles.

no,.. this is just sad now.  i'm quite certain xbox will be down YoY over the holiday sale period and by probably a lot.  it has some decent games this year but it won't counter act it having an effectivly higher price than last year, a 9 month drought of games, and it being common knowledge now that ps4 is killing xbox and getting all the best 3rd party games exclusive, first, or with extra content.

Yeah a $50 cut would only keep them competitive, not put them on top.

If XBO is down yoy for holiday sales, it'll probably be down YoY for the whole year. That'd be a bad sign.

down until they cut price again at least.  i dunno if MS can afford to or not but i'll say this,.. ever since nadella took the reigns xbox seems to be doing less and less.  i think nadella is really cracking down on spending more than they can make back and that xbox will be basically in survival mode for the rest of the gen.

I think MS has made it clear that they're prioritizing revenue over beating its competition. We have a hint as to whether MS is profiting from hardware and Phil's response was quite hesitant (http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/09/24/unlocked-213-phil-spencer-on-ffxiv-killer-apps-and-more). You can hear his response at 49:39.

   Xbox One Exec: New IPs And Bigger Games Expected In 2016, Halo 5 Will "Define A Generation" | N4G
 (http://n4g.com/news/1802798/xbox-one-exec-new-ips-and-bigger-games-expected-in-2016-halo-5-will-define-a-generation)

Talk about fanboy hyperbole and stupidity...

"Honestly Halo 5 is shaping to be the best FPS shooter and will definitely be stand out from COD/Battlefront/R6 Seige."

It's shaping up to be another Halo with design decisions that have split the community (Halo fans, not Xbox fans) and lacking two features at launch that have been considered standard for several games now. Each one of those games listed stands out on its own. Call of Duty is not like Battlefront which is not like Rainbow Six.

The 2016 line up looks really good (Recore, Scalebound, QB, SOT...). I hope MS keeps investing in new AAA ips through out this gen also san't wait to play Halo 5. The campaign and warzone look very interesting.

I'd really like to know where Xbox fanboys get their information about Recore. Because last time I checked there hasn't been anything shown or anything said about the game to determine what it actually is, nevermind whether or not it will be great. Considering that Microsoft's first-party development efforts for Xbox One keep shrinking and leaning once again on the same old franchises, I wouldn't hold my breath.

XBOX is beginning to gain momentum and Halo 5 like Forza 6, no doubt will be one of the best in its genre. Day 1!

I feel like I hear that rhetoric at least three times a year from Xbox fanboys. Right before or during the holidays, right before or during the convention season, and then at least once at an odd time during the year. Usually preceding a hyped game or after some announcement that doesn't matter. They're just like doomsday prophets. They're not going to stop saying it until it finally comes true or they're dead. It doesn't matter to them how many times they're wrong.

In my honest opinion if they offer in 2016 the following

QuantumBreak
Scalebound
Recore
Crackdown 3
Forza Horzon 3
Gears of War 4
Halo Wars
Project Knoxville
Sea of Thieves

Add in

Cuphead
Tacoma
The Solus Project
ION
DayZ
Ashen
Superhot
So happy Few
Bloodstain

You add in
DLC support for Halo 5, Forza, TombRaider
Plus if Fable is released and Gigantic in 2016 instead of 2015

They are going to have an Epic year. Its going to be tuff for any competitor to top what MS has too offer. This is just my opinion.

One of THOSE fanboys. The kind that list off every game they can think of regardless. Why? To give you the impression that the Xbox One has a huge list of games and that they all "matter". If you did a side-by-side comparison for total number of upcoming games, it becomes clear where the numbers are. When you actually break down which games are likely to have any real impact, you realize the Xbox One list isn't getting any bigger from one year to the next and that they're dangerously close to running out of exclusives to get people to look forward to. I also like how at the end they put, "This is just my opinion". In other words, "You can't attack my bias now because I called it opinion".

the truth is the reason why playstion fans choose to over look xbox line up is simply because the xbox is the first real competition that playstation has had since 1994. the saturn 3do n64, atari jag etc couldnt stand up to playstation, the game cube and dreamcast couldnt stand up to ps2, the original xbox was a power house and could do stuff the ps2 couldnt, the xbox 360 even tho it had a huge failure rate managed to keep ps3 on its toes and sell just as many consoles and now xbox one the apparently weaker system of the 2 seems to keep on delivering quality games and services even after a shaky reveal bk in 2013.

This guy has to be the winner. I don't even need to go into why this is fanboy gold.

 Xbox 360 Games Could Be Playable On PC Someday, Phil Spencer Says

 [/font][/size]
 Xbox boss Phil Spencer wants to further bridge the gap between PC (http://www.cinemablend.com/games/pc/) and Xbox (http://www.cinemablend.com/games/xbox/)gaming. He said in a new interview that he'd love to make Xbox 360 games playable on PC. 

During his chat with Gizmodo Brasil (http://gizmodo.uol.com.br/entrevista-phil-spencer/), Spencer also reiterated his desire to make games from the original Xbox compatible with Xbox One (http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Xbox-Original-Games-Could-Playable-Xbox-One-Someday-79897.html):
 [Xbox games on Xbox One is] something I want to do, but it is a matter of priority. I would love to have the ability to play Xbox 360 on PC at some point too, so we have different things we have to think about when we plan these things. But it would be great to have support for original Xbox games. So yes, I want it, but we have many other things we want to do as well.
 
The Xbox 360 has a huge library of games so being able to play them on PC would be great. PC owners would also get the chance to try out some great 360 games that never got ported to their platform. They've waited long enough for Red Dead Redemption (http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Rockstar-Red-Dead-Redemption-Viable-PC-35782.html), the later Gears of War games and the Crackdown series. 

Microsoft's priority right now, though, is on making Xbox 360 games compatible with XB1. They plan to launch the feature in November (http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Xbox-One-Backwards-Compatible-Games-Full-List-Xbox-360-Titles-Playable-Console-72570.html). Xbox One owners will be able to use digital or physical 360 games in their console and play online against Xbox 360 owners. A hundred Xbox 360 games will be playable on Xbox One at that time, with more to come. I wonder at what point they'll consider Xbox 360 compatibility "complete enough" to move onto other projects like Xbox 360-to-PC support. 

The chances of these other compatibility projects were probably improved by the huge reaction to Xbox 360 support on Xbox One when it was announced at E3 (http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Xbox-One-Add-Backwards-Compatibility-Xbox-360-Games-Soon-72471.html). Spencer admitted to Gizmodo Brasil that he was shocked how excited fans were about backwards compatibility:
 I was ... more than surprised. The team that made the backward compatibility of work was in the audience, and it was really cool to see them feeling the fan reaction to the work they were doing. 

The Xbox now has a long history, going through the original Xbox, the 360 and the One. It was a great time for people to understand that, as a platform development team, we want to create features that will appeal also to the old Xbox gamers. We will not charge money for backward compatibility not charge subscription, you have the game and can play it on Xbox One. And the reaction was fantastic. Xbox fans are very committed to the brand and franchises. It was surprising, but all the more surprising, was inspiring.

The deal could very well not appear anywhere else, but only because other stores didn't like it. Not because Dell has exclusive rights to that combination and price.

Quote
Seems like the Xbox Live architect Eric Neustadter (has first ever created gamertag 'e') had his final day today: https://twitter.com/thevowel/status/657674375890518016Eric Neustadter (e) ‏@thevowel  6m6 minutes agoAfter 14.5 years working at Xbox (18.5 at MS) today is my last day. It's been an amazing ride.
 So Long, and Thanks for All the Gamerscore!

 From Wikipedia:
Quote
Eric Alan Neustadter, also known by his Xbox Live Gamertag e, is the Operations Manager for the Microsoft gaming network Xbox Live.(1)(2) Neustadter is frequently a co-host of Larry Hryb's "Major Nelson Radio" Xbox-related podcast. Neustadter has been with Xbox Live since 2002. He attended the University of Oregon.
 According to Microsoft, "e" is the first Gamertag ever created on Xbox Live, having been created on August 13, 2002.(3) Neustadter picked the Gamertag in the early stages of Xbox Live as an abbreviation for his first name.

Not sure if they have actual stores or not. I'm still trying to wrap my head around why Microsoft made such an awesome deal exclusive to an online store for Dell.
Dell and Microsoft have a good working relationship and it's online only.  It's also probably not exclusive.

Most of Microsoft's marketing deals haven't worked that well, especially for this year. The Witcher 3? The PS4 version ended up selling twice as much as the XBO version in just the US/UK. Fallout 4? The PS4 version sold more in the UK even if you count the Fallout 4 bundles. Rise of the Tomb Raider? We all know how that turned out...

I have a feeling Scalebound will eventually go on PC since the platform has a good RPG fanbase.

It doesn't feel any better at simplifying the UI to make it easier to get to things. Some things that use to be at my finger tips feel further away now. It's faster than the old one. I'll give it that. But the layout actually looks worse to me. Other than loading speed for certain parts of it, it just doesn't feel like the kind of improvement some people were boasting.

Umm.. no.

But I does feel pretty sweet. I like the high grade materials it's made out of. But they missed the mark of a few things. The bumpers still feel cheap, the rounded top sticks should have come in a short size as well. or at least have the ability to take the stops off and but them on a shorter shaft.

Anyone know if there is a cronos max like programs for pc so I can try it on ps4? I know there is for racing wheels but I don't remember the name of it and I think it was for wheels only.

"On Monday we announced changes to Microsoft Studios including  Lionhead  and Press Play," a Microsoft representative told us via email.  "As part  of these changes, we did a site refresh and removed  several logos for  older studios and projects that have been  consolidated during the past  several years into other Microsoft Studios  and teams. As games launch  and new projects come online, we  routinely make these kinds of moves to  ensure we have the right  development support on the right games."

 So I guess some of these studios merged with other studios?

Phil explains not all of Microsoft's Xbox One games will also be going to PC and vice versa. Microsoft decides if a game is suitable for one or both platforms and publishes as they see fit. Case in point, Ashes of Singularity is unlikely to hit PC because Microsoft does not think it is suitable for PC. We of course already know they think Rise of the Tomb Raider, Forza, and Gears of War are suitable for both platforms.

Especially when that same division was jerking itself off to Titanfall back during launch. Even more of a riot considering Bungie was making the original Halo for PC before Microsoft bought them. THEN had the first two games released on PC later. I just... dude I fudgy quit. The shame sandwiches people are willing to eat when being served by guys like him. Unreal.

 Gears of War 4 has microtransactions for cosmetic loot crates - NeoGAF (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1207740)

Probably not shocking given it's 2016.

"I feel like that paradigm of cards is really clear to understand for collectibles, like the ability to collect things. We had weapon skins and character skins, so that idea of collecting cards is just easily understood. It felt like it added some engagement in terms of its not the, 'Oh, I like Tiger Stripe. I bought Tiger Stripe. I'm done. I don't need to engage with that system anymore. There's no need for me to hang around.'""That's I think what we owe the player, is that feeling you get, much like ... I think Hearthstone is brilliant at, that idea of the glow, and the voice, and the excitement about like, 'I want to open packs, and I want to be a part of that engagement. I can't wait to complete today's quest so I can go to the paramedic with pack of cards.' I think that feeds into that engagement.
 "I think that's the same thing we're trying to do here. The notion that everything is earnable just through play means the only reason you would ever use real money is when you want to accelerate it. We're going to be balanced where you're going to be constantly getting crates, or enough credits to get crates through the game, so it really is just about your choice," Fergusson said.

The new gears 4 trailer has really grown on me. I still think the animations and designs are fudged up, but for a person that cares about these characters it wouldn't matter.

Also the video has passed 5 million views. I think this game will easily outsell Halo 5 if the reviews are OK.

And to be honest, I think the only reason Gears 4 will surpass Halo 5 will be a combination of desperation for an exclusive title with Gears being a familiar face and the fact that Halo is older and thus hit its peak earlier.

Big thing imo is that the last mainline Gears was good. Even if the new devs screw it up like 343 did with Halo 4, it's going to have so much momentum leading into launch.

I don't know about that. A lot of people weren't happy with Judgement. Just because Gears 3 was great doesn't mean people forget the most recent offering was way below par for them. A buddy of mine used to be a huge Gears fan. After Gears 3 he was done with the series. He didn't even bother touching Judgement and he thinks Gears 4 looks like shame. In fact, none of my friends who held the series in any regards give a rats dog about Gears 4 right now. The Gears fanbase isn't what it used to be, it was never nearly as big as Halo, and the hype surrounding this game has a lot more to do with hardcore Xbox fans scrambling to find some big game to champion on a console that is approaching a downward slope. You've seen the game as it is right now. You know it looks like shame. It can only be denied for so long.

Most people think Judgement wasn't developed by Epic so they just kinda ignore it.

Had no idea Gears 3 damaged the series though. That was the game that caused me to jump on board.

I fully agree that it's casual gears fans hyping this the most, but at least unlike Halo 5 they don't have the hardcore fans hating on it.

It wasn't so much that Gears 3 did anything wrong. The way my friend described it, he said he felt like it just ran its course. Some things feel timeless and others just feel like they're meant to end. To him, the multiplayer stopped being satisfying. It was one of those experiences where it was great when it was new because it felt like something different. Over time it just didn't have enough hooks to keep him going. There are also a lot of Gears fans, like him, who preferred the old 4-man setup of the original Gears and disliked what the series did from Gears 2 onwards.

Halo 5 did worse than Gears 3.  

Halo 5, according to what we have for NPD
(October 27th release day)
October = 935k
Next Month = ~358k
Total  = ~1.3 million  

Gears of War 3
(September 20th release day)
September = 2.0 million.  

In just 10 days, GeoW3 sold more than Halo 5 did in 30.

How are Halo 5's legs? As 1/2 tau shows it had a poor start. I'd say it ends ~4 million.

Gears has always done 6m+, plus if Gears4 is good the sales might not even decrease. XBO owners are thirsty for a big exclusive.

Yeah, and Halo 3/reach/4 did way more than Gears 3.
Gears 3 was on 360 and so were Halo 3-4. Halo 5 and Gears 4 are on XB1. Gears 4 has new devs too which is usually not a good sign for sales.

Halo 3 - Xbox 360 (Microsoft) - 3.3 million
It did that in 8 days.  

Halo 4 (360) - 3.2 million
This was like 24 days.

Halo Reach (360) - 3.3 million
This was about 16 days.  


I am not really sure that the platform matters that much.  
The people that are generally the more enthusiastic will certainly have an Xbox One.  

New dev could mean disaster, I do agree.

How do you explain the Halo 5 drop then? Going from 3m+ in a month to a bit over 1m is huge. Plus, Halo didn't do as well on XB as it did on 360.
I don't expect Gears to drop as much but it will drop quite a bit.

On the XB, it was basically a new IP.  

I blame it on Halo 4 being fairly divisive, and MCC having early troubles.

Looks like MS is really trying to rip people of with Gears 4 (guess you gotta work hard preemptively so your PR can say it was the "biggest Gears launch ever", huh?), reactions to the $250 Collectors Edition don't seem too positive and asking $50 for what essentially amounts to a bunch of maps for private matches in your season pass is freaking ridiculous.

From what I heard, the PS4 Neo is pushing 4.5 Tflops. Good luck making the math work like that. Also, a platform pushing that much more power wouldn't be cheap. You'd be looking at probably a $900 console for Microsoft to not lose its dog on every console sold. This reminds me quite a bit of the pie in the sky dreams some people had about Xbox One being much more powerful than PS4. Interesting to watch a fanbase go from "power is everything" to "power means nothing" and back again.

Power isn't why PS4 outsold XB1 or why PS2 stomped every console thrown at it.

Phil Spencer is trying to push out all the failed Don Mattrick games as soon as possible so he can reform Microsoft Studios his way.

 And unfortunately that means cancellations, studio closures, and sending games out to die.

What is there to do? Phil Spencer only became head 2 years ago, that isn't much time for any reform. Any new games coming out would likely take a couple years longer to become a reality. Realistically, they need to just focus their efforts on their next-gen console, as its clear the XB1 has been a lemon for them. Hoping for the best, but we'll just have to wait and see.

 
He's been the General Manager of Microsoft Studios since 2008, so for 8 years Phil's had his say on what games get greenlit or how studios should operate, along with new studios being created, I think that's more than enough time for a person in a position of power to effect change.

 Phil would have been able to give his opinions on XB1 and combine any internal or external feedback together to report to higher ups on what the needs would have been for this generation. If Microsoft ignore the XB1 and don't put out solid, fresh exclusives people will have no faith in the next platform. This E3 needs to be about Microsoft showing off a load of new IPs that are exclusive to XB1, fresh games that appeal to a bigger audience than the same core Xbox gamers, I don't see it happening because Microsoft have been doing the same thing all this time Phil has been in a position to do anything about Microsoft's own internal game development.

 Hopefully some new studios have been built that are focused on new titles.

After the success of the Kinect in 2010 the higher-ups like Mattrick demanded "Games as a service" and "focus on the cloud" and "TV integration" and "Kinect 2.0." Phil was against that...but he couldn't do much about it.

 That's why games like Kinect Sports Rivals, Project Spark, Fable Legends, Quantum Break, Crackdown 3, Sea of Thieves, etc. exist. They're focused on the cloud / part of the 2011-2013 mentality.

 Spencer has been leading since March 2014, so he is responsible for games greenlit in 2014-2015...which we won't see until 2017-2018 at the earliest. They had to work through all of the old Mattrick titles, but now they're pretty much done with that with cancellations and closures and releases, with a couple of stragglers left to come out (like Sea of Thieves / Crackdown).

 Scalebound was one of the first games formally greenlit and put into motion under Phil Spencer's tenure. Recore was greenlit in April 2014...another game by Spencer as Head of Xbox. Again, you're not going to see them until 2017, probably. And both games are traditional games...they don't focus on the cloud or games as a service nonsense.

 Halo Wars 2 is another game by Spencer when job postings started showing up around May 2014.

 Games just take a while to come out.

Well that sounds great for Rare... let them throw out their game and then just throw them under the bus like Lionhead?

And yeah, for now I see no real reason to believe Spencer is going to do a better job with their first party studios. I mean for one he was the guy that put the wheels in motion for their big new studio to just become a Gears factory, following in MS clear footsteps of just having studios work on the same IPs for ever and ever.

Also I don't see MS giving more attention to these "Spencer" games, both Scalebound and Recore have been announced extremely poorly.

Maybe he'll prove me wrong this E3 but I just kinda doubt it.

Yeah wasn't Spencer in charge of first party studios before he replaced Matrick?

Quantum Break and Crackdown seem like the only games he wouldn't have been in charge of. Legends, Halo 5, Shangheist, Sea of Thieves, Rare Replay, Gears 4, Project Spark, Lococycle, Kinect Sports Rivals, and Max are all his to some extent.

Considering he abandoned Kinect and TV with his very first E3, I don't see why Aqua's posts make any sense.

I agree, Aqua's post doesn't resonate with me either.  The Mattrick games are a good point.  They're done now though.  What about the other stuff Spencer has been doing?  What about utilizing other studios to create titles instead of letting them waste away to be quietly shut down?  Mattrick didn't have all of Microsoft making Kinect games.  Black Tusk got repurposed after Mattrick left.  Mattrick didn't shut down Lionhead without telling them (They were literally talking about Fable's beta the day they were shut down).  Just seems odd.

This Phil Spencer talk is pure battleship.

The ideia of MS money from games will always kills franchises/newips... Phil has the same philosophy than Matrick... the difference is that Phil says what you (Xbox fans) wants to hear (but do the opposite).

i think we're going to see a poor showing for xbox this E3.

Gears,.. of course.  Crackdown,.. of course.  the next forza,.. of course.
probably finally see something about recore.  but expect this to disappoint once gameplay is shown.
something about windows 10 being awesome.
a bunch of third party multiplats.
another fully CGI trailer to a game that has a high chance of not actually having started development, might get canceled and if not is at least a year out from having any details about it shared.
..and i feel like halo 6 is getting announced because they need something to point at as exciting.
Title: Re: XBOX COMMUNITY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Guaranteed or very likely to be at E3

- Gears 4 gameplay
- Crackdown 3 gameplay
- Sea of Thieves gameplay
- Halo Wars 2 gameplay
- New content for Halo 5 multiplayer
- Forza Horizon 3 announcement
- Scalebound gameplay
- ReCore gameplay
- Battlefield 1 gameplay + XB1 users get DLC first

Pretty predictable stuff, though the gameplay can make the conference more exciting if done well. Cuphead may appear again depending on when it releases. I also have a feeling that Windows 10 will get more focus than it had before.

so basically re-announcing all those things that were announced last year back when they weren't ready to be announced but announced anyways.

Microsoft is no longer planning to add a TV DVR feature to its Xbox One console. The software giant originally unveiled plans to add TV DVR to the Xbox One back in August, noting that the feature would arrive some time in 2016. "After careful consideration, we've decided to put development of DVR for Over-the-Air TV on hold to focus our attention on launching new, higher fan-requested gaming experiences across Xbox One and Windows 10," revealed a Microsoft spokesperson in a statement to The Verge. "We're always listening to fan feedback and we look forward to bringing more requested experiences on Xbox One, Windows 10 and Xbox Live this year."

 
This is an important reminder to never put money down on vague future promises.

sure.  i think ms's broken promises lay in the failed launch and change in leadership.  it was the old leadership that made promises not the current leadership.  the new leadership is purposefully changing directions as a reflection that the old direction was rejected by the market.  in some ways the broken promises are a good thing.  okay yeah,.. xbox will no longer function as a dvr.  well, people were pretty upset about the TV TV TV SPORTS! direction of the original vision so maybe it is a good thing ms redirected resources away from TV! and into something else.

The new leadership has its own set of broken or at least not yet fulfilled promises, like the "We want to focus more on first party" or "We want to space out our games better" promises.

That being said Sony isn't above breaking their promises either, especially when they contain the words "We", "are", "going", "to", "release" and "in".

I say we play a drinking game. We take a shot every time Sony uses one of those words.



Significant improvement over the beta.

Mind you, based on what I'm seeing they have quite a ways to go to make the game look impressive for this gen, but at least it doesn't look like a pile of dogshit on fire.

my development background isn't super impressive by the way.  i did a job for 3 years but it was a college gig where i was the only developer on the project.  my boss was a ex-developer and a great guy so i learned a lot of good technique but i'd never really pitch that "i can code" as why someone should hire me.  it's more like "i can communicate effectively with those that code".

"Steam and Sony will have a tough time" -This E3 will show Microsoft being more aggressive -Unaware if Xbox streaming devices will be announced at E3 but they are real, might break off into its own brand like what happened with Microsoft Band

"I look at Steam today, it's on an incredible growth trajectory. It's a massive force in gaming; a positive force. I think it will be bigger a year from now than it is today. And five years later it will still be bigger again," he said. "I look at Valve as an important [independent software vendor] for us on Windows. They are a critical part of gaming's success on Windows. I don't think Valve's hurt by not having our first-party games in their store right now. They're doing incredible well. We will ship games on Steam again."
Quote
Also in the interview, Spencer stressed that, while Microsoft will put some of its future games on Steam (he didn't say which ones), he is also committed to further building out Microsoft's own Xbox store on PC. "I want to build a store; there's no doubt about that," he said.
I think Microsoft will publish small titles on Steam and keep their big games (e.g. Forza, Halo, etc.) on the Windows Store, provided that they don't sell like crud.

"Microsoft actually approached the Final Fantasy 14 team about the cross-platform opportunity," Yoshida told Polygon. "When our team reviewed the regulations that are associated with that, we realized that Microsoft may not have the experience or understanding of running an MMORPG as an online game genre just yet. The Final Fantasy 14 team has fed back to Microsoft that there are certain elements of its regulations that we would have to consider waived. We're waiting on Microsoft's response for that, but we are having discussions."
Basically, while the XB1 has crossplay, there are still caveats.

What is Xbox Project Scorpio, exactly? Er, it seems even game developers don't know… | GamesRadar+ (http://www.gamesradar.com/what-is-xbox-project-scorpio-exactly-er-it-seems-even-game-developers-dont-know/)
I thought it was funny during the conference they said that they were announcing it so developers could start thinking about/using the power for it.  You announce it to devs by sending out dev kits not at a conference where you send a slim xbox one out to die because you are trying to undercut sony.  They clearly don't give two nuggets about xbox one or xbox one S.

i mean,.. it is still a year and a half away.  they'll have games as long as they get dev kits out before the end of the year.

still odd though.  mades it a lot more clear this wasn't a plan but a reaction to sony's neo.

I've never played gears so I'm excited to try it.  Although I should get the gears of war collection so I can play them.  And forza horizon 3 does look pretty sweet.

Yeah I don't expect many games to even use much of the power of it for a year or more after it releases.  And even then they will likely work with xbox one in mind first and only do slight upgrades like texture res or AA and resolution.

It will be the same situation for ps4 neo. Though I think they will fare better cause it won't be as big of an increase in power and sony are only really thinking about res bumps and better AA and maybe slight texture res increases.  MS just wanted to be on top and they are gonna be sloppy at it I think which will hurt them.

not that left field.  it was was announced at MSs E3 event in 2014.  it went dead media wise after that but this is also from the developer that made limbo so good or not it was going to gather some media attention.  looks like it is good.

i hope it is better than limbo.  that was solid but not as good as the forums hyped it up to be.

Have there even been previews for this or anything other than the short trailers the game's gotten at E3? The announcement of its release date was completely drowned out in MS conference and I bet tons of people had no idea this was coming out so soon, hell the top comment on r/xboxone on the ign review thread for this is literally saying "I had no idea this was coming out" (I expect similar things to happen with Abzu and Bound btw.).

1. E3 2014 this was announced.
2. E3 2016 was (afaik) the next time the game was talked about.

makes perfect sense why no one was talking about it because there was nothing to talk about.  i'm not sure why playdead and ms didn't put any marketing into it sooner but i dunno,.. it is an indie title and most of them don't get much coverage until the week or two prior these days.

I had a feeling this was going to happen. I even seem to recall mentioning awhile back that Microsoft might not do a Gamescom conference with how few new games they announced last year and with the closure of so many studios. They just don't have enough going on internally to be able to do two worthwhile conferences months apart.

As far as Crackdown 3 goes, concern should start setting in. This game was announced two years ago and we've seen no actual game footage. Just proof of concept work. We know very little about it and the multiplayer, beta or otherwise, was supposed to launch this Summer. Now the whole game is a tentative 2017. Of even greater concern should be that the studio doing the actual game development is very small and has never produced anything else. This is effectively its first project.

maybe their going to have their own "microsoft experience".


Spoiler for Hidden:
..actually that is a bad idea.  a conference where all the attendees are raped would be quite expensive.

...now I want to go.

This is the studio doing the bulk of the work. Another studio is doing the cloud tech part of it and apparently Sumo Digital is assisting.

And the PS4 is already small as it is. Making internal changes to the hardware will probably be more cost effective since Sony won't have to invest so much in R&D for a slim console.

Andrew House has said there's going to be a slim.  They save money on plastics and materials if they shrink.  I just don't see a $99 console anymore.  I think 150 will be the cheapest we'll see from now on.

I see. Looks like the profit margins are big enough to justify a slim console. I also forgot that the PS4 sells at a significantly faster pace than the XB1 and isn't dependent on two markets, so Sony will have less difficulty recuperating the money and resources spent into R&D.

 Dead Rising 4 Looks Like an Absolute Mess (Health Regenerates Now) - NeoGAF (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1265766)

Quote
As the title suggest, DR4 is starting to look like a train wreck of a sequel. It started with Terence Rotolo not being contacted to voice Frank West again, but as time progressed it's gotten way worse. The timer is gone from missions, you don't escort survivors anymore (they just run away when you save them), your health automatically regenerates, you get the overpowered exo-suit from the start, and combo weapons are being given out like candy now.
 Supposedly the dev team asked fans what they wanted and this is the result. I've yet to talk to a Dead Rising fan who was in favor of completely changing everything about Frank, making survivors super easy, or wanted an overabundance of OP weapons, or any of these changes (only one you can argue is the removal of the timer). Dead Rising 4 doesn't resemble what the franchise was 10 years ago.

The letter E?
And R.  
R+E=Re -> 18+5=23
R*E=18*5=90
90+23=113
113= 100+ 10+ 3
100= 50+50=half+half
10= typical lifespan of a dog
3=3
What we can conclude from this is that The Last Guardian is part of a trilogy.

All games that the Xbox community hype(d) up, then don't(didn't) buy and then continue(d) to count as these great Xbox exclusives that make the system so much better than the competition while dismissing exclusive games on PS4 from smaller japanese titles, to even things like Infamous SS, because "nobody cares about these games".

Back before the XBO release and shortly after, a lot of the guys over in their XBO Empire thread really hyped up that MS was listening to fans and getting Japanese support this time. IE remember how everyone thought their was a MS game studio built in Japan? For a fair amount of them, it seemed to be a primary reason for buying an XBO.

Then of course the games never came and we learned the studio never existed. Sucked for everyone.

Well with the reviews of Recore being pretty shame,  out of the 3 of them I'd only call Sunset overdrive a good game.  

Pity the xbox fans didn't give it the sales it deserved.  Despite being bungled,  given away for free 1 day and on sale for pennies it still didn't manage an impressive total.

I thought leaving the UHD Bluray player out of the Pro was a smart business decision, not just in terms of cutting down costs, but also in terms of not catering to an audience that is extremely niche.

While a lot of people are focusing (and getting outraged, for some reason) on House's comment on Microsoft's jabs, it's his statement on how PS4 users favor streaming over physical media by 5 to 1 that is more interesting. Not only that, but Sony is not as invested in UHD Bluray and it was in the Bluray vs. HD DVD format wars. Sure, providing more options is always a good thing, but when the vast majority is not interested in a particular feature, it is not worth the investment.

A day one patch boosted the credit earnings from versus multiplayer and reduced the price on one of the packs, but left everything else unchanged. You can play play all 50 waves of Horde mode over a span of hours and still not be able to afford the cheapest in-game pack for that mode. But you can pay real money and get those cards and those bonuses and be a stronger player in that mode and save that time and effort. All it takes is some of that real money. Don’t worry about the purchase price of the game. They know you’ve spent $60 or $100 already. The microtransactions are totally optional! Except they’re not if you want to have the highest damage weapons and in-game buffs for Horde mode. So, just spend. The alternative is grinding with little reward or progression so it’s better to open your wallet. Spend!
 That’s the devs talking.

 
I have to say that I'd be hard pressed to point to another full priced game that has had a $10.00, 25.00, and $100.00+ bundle of randomized cosmetics and boosters dropped within the first week - all of which will not even come close to giving you every item available in the game even if you were to eliminate repeats. It's like the Forza 5 launch, but way worse because at least you got to choose what you were buying for real money in that situation, even though you could technically spend more. Both featured insane amounts of grinding (even after initial adjustments) to get what you want.
 The Coalition and Microsoft need to reevaluate their microtransaction policies and make things more reasonable. I understand that we are just numbers to them, but at least create an environment where we can pretend that we're not.
 Craft me for 2400 scrap if old.
 
I hate microtransactions so freaking much.

Micro transaction boosters?  
That sucks.  
Randomized microtransactions also suck.  

DLC shouldn't give an unfair advantage to players who pay.  Even if it isn't an explicit versus mode.  

I don't care about microtransactions as long as they are the kind that lets me buy a red hat that has zero impact on the game.  Aside from that, they usually suck....

Lol, MS just released a DLC pack for Gears for including 2 character skins, 1 weapon skin and a couple other things. Apparently this isn't included in the $50 season pass and can also not be unlocked via playing. And the best thing? This DLC pack is $20.

It's pretty disgusting how overpriced everything in Gears 4 is.

are there though?  

the original sold like crud so there cannot be that many fans of the game.  and a direct port, not a remaster.  i'm sure a few people buy the ps2 stuff on psn but i can't imagine it is anyones priority or reason for any excitement.  it's filler at best for a few nostalgic fans that don't mind double dipping.

I do believe it was more or less confirmed in the document leak Eurogamer snagged that Zen was ruled out. Scorpio's CPU is not likely to be anything special and probably won't really be any faster than what PS4 Pro is using. From what it sounded like, the only thing Scorpio has going for it over PS4 Pro is the GPU, which is about 50% more powerful. That alone does not mean the console itself is that much more powerful, as we saw in the difference between PS4 and XBO. It also sounded like Scorpio will have to use special techniques to achieve a 4K resolution on many titles, similar to the checkerboard rendering used in Horizon. Basically, and as we all figured, Scorpio isn't actually powerful enough to brute force a 4K resolution on all games.

The most likely scenario is that Scorpio will more often achieve a native 4K resolution but not to the extent many believed and whether or not it even matters compared to special rendering techniques remains to be seen. In addition, some games may have better framerate on Scorpio but that may depend on locked framerates. If the game cannot actually achieve 60fps with the additional power, it may just be left at its capped framerate to avoid the issues that occur when framerate frequently changes. That's a big question a lot of people have right now. Can a 50% more powerful GPU achieve a 100% increase in framerate by itself? If the game was already achieving 60fps on lesser hardware, it won't matter. The difference between Scorpio and PS4 Pro is likely only to be seen by those with 4K TV sets and, again, that will boil down to how much better, if at all, a native 4K resolution looks by comparison to a special kind of rendering and upscaling.

As far as price goes, I don't think Phil is alluding to a $500 price tag. I think he's just making sure people understand that this will be substantially more expensive than the $250 Xbox One S. Anyone expecting a $300 console is going to be disappointed. If Scorpio were to launch at $500 it would be dead quite quickly. It can't be $100 more expensive than its competitor right out of the gate. Microsoft should understand by now that Xbox does not have the weight behind it to get away with charging that much.

The way I see it they can't go really powerful because if it's expensive it flops.  Sony have the ability to cut the base ps4 to $199 if needs be and who kbiwwith the Pro we could see a $299 or $349 pro this fall.  Going to make xbox a hard sell when the opposition has the ability to go so low.

Supposedly the Scorpio will be shown off next week with Forza 7, apparently through a third party site and not MS themselves (potentially Eurogamer/DF). If true then that should hopefully finally quiet down the people still left, that think this will be a totally new console generation. Cause MS would never show of their true next gen system, that is supposed to sell to the mass market in such a low key way.

All of this comes from Jez Corden, the colossal crustard, btw.

Really not understanding the insistence that Scorpio is an entirely next-gen device. The specs that Eurogamer reported on absolutely do not support that idea. It is not nearly the kind of upgrade over its predecessor one would expect. Furthermore, unless Microsoft pulls yet another 180, it was already stated that no games can be made exclusively for Scorpio. Same as it is for Pro. So not only do the specs rule that out but so does the software limitation. This sounds to me like the wishful thinking of some hardcore Xbox fans who want this generation to end now because it has basically been a nightmare for their breed. I really do not understand these people. I have personally met and know fans of all types in the gaming community and not a single one of them acts like these fanboys.

Yeah, it's embarrassing that there's an insistence like this. Though it probably doesn't help when you have some devs making stupid comments on Gaf where they say things like "the Scorpio is totally not a half step, unlike the PS4 Pro" or when Aaron Greenberg starts the year posting something on twitter along the lines of "This is the year of the Scorpio. Are you ready for the beast?" or when games media personalities like Colin Moriarty for months completely ignore MS' own public statements and repeatedly proclaim that the Scorpio is going to be a "quantum leap" over the X1 and clearly a new generation for Xbox. This dumb idea has been perpetuated for quite some time now and I think it's going to be pretty entertaining to see it all being shattered once it happens.

Writer for Windowscentral, pretty reliable, mostly because Windowscentral is essentially a MS marketing outlet. I don't know if you remember the heated discussions we had last December about the November NPD number leaks, where some people didn't believe them because they came from a person that took part in crudgamer podcasts. That person was Jez Corden.

Jez is one of the writers at Windows Central. For a while, he published the NPD hardware numbers but haven't done that since January.

I think Microsoft is doing this to maintain publicity. Switch is getting a whole lot of attention because as soon as it gets back in stock, it sells out. The PS4 is getting a whole lot of exclusive software and positive press as a result of it.

So the reveal info might be true...

Any details on it? I can't come up with a scenario that doesn't make this reveal stupid. Scorpio needs a Microsoft hosted event to be properly shown off and marketed. If they only show Forza 7 gameplay on Scorpio and not much else, then why couldn't that gameplay just be held off till E3?

NeoGAF - View Single Post -  Project Scorpio to be shown off next week according to Jez C... (READ MOD POST) (http://neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=233180992#post233180992)

Quote
To clarify for all of you beautiful people.
 A major outlet visited Microsoft this week to take a look at Scorpio and its specs, using Forza Motorsport 7 as a showcase.
 I've had the information about FM7 being a 4K "showcase" for a while, but it wasn't until a friend of a friend of a friend of a writer at this particular outlet (no prizes for guessing who) leaked the big reveal to me that I considered it confirmed. It made previous information I had make more sense, combined with info I got from what's happening with the Forza guys, etc. Expect a deluge of coverage next week.
 The fact MS is showing off Forza and Scorpio now potentially bodes well for E3, hopefully they're going to give us a better idea of what their games line-up will look like in 2018 and beyond, but they're prob going to be cautious with how far out they go, due to the whole Scalebound thing. I think they're aware of the narrative surrounding how their line-up looks like compared to Sony's.
 We generally have good info on Microsoft's internal happenings from years and years covering Windows, Surface, Lumia (RIP) and whatnot, as tech press rather than games press.
 Cheers

Heard black, but that might've only been dev kits.
 Dev kits also have a nifty LCD screen on them for showing devs real-time data, pretty cool.(http://i.imgur.com/ggcE6x9.jpg)
There's hardly no reason to have an LCD panel for dev use since that information's just pumped into the computer anyway. It'd only be useful for initially setting up the dev environment if problems occur.

So I think that's a very strong sign that the retail version will have a front LCD panel too. Would be kinda cool just to give that premium feel.

And add unnecessary costs even if it's not a lot.  Sounds pointless to have an LCD panel.

I'm just curious what their native 4k games are gonna look like on this.  If they basically force first party devs to be native 4k then I think they will most likely be slightly better than their xbox one versions.  Just slightly better effects.  Vast majority of devs will likely just use the power for res bumps like we have seen on pro.  With little room for smaller updates.  There is still no way this is gonna compete with a 1070 or whatever some people are spouting on gaf.  If it really is a pretty big upgrade and can compete with it then great,  I'd likely trade my xbox one in for a scorpio sometime when it's cheaper.

RRP in euros usually match the RRP in dollars. So if this is correct, expect it to be priced at $399. Not a bad price at all.

Plus those graphs are tiny! As a dev does dev things, are they supposed to watch that little LOD and make sure everything looks normal? And if something looks off, what are they supposed to do then?

I have two monitors and my devkit is connected to a capture card that can display the game in a window on my PC.

Both my dev kit and testkit are connected to my computer so yeah I have the profiling "apps" running on Windows. I also can use Unity's built in profiler which looks like this:

 Gang Beasts can't commit to XB1 release due to parity clause, considering Switch - NeoGAF (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1368772)

Seems this is still causing Microsoft some issues with indie developers.

 Gang Beasts dev: Parity clause means we can't commit to Xbox One release By James Batchelor Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz at EGX Rezzed, the studio's co-founder James Brown says he and his two brothers hope to bring cartoony physics-based brawler Gang Beasts to as many platforms as possible. The game is currently in Early Access on Steam and Oculus Rift, with a PS4 build in the works. But efforts to take Gang Beasts out of the alpha program by the end of Q2 2017 - combined with Microsoft's parity clause - is preventing the team from working on a Xbox version. "We have Xbox One dev kits, and we'd love to do Xbox One but because of the parity exemption stuff, it doesn't feel like we can prioritise it," Brown told us. "It's absolutely the opposite of what (Microsoft) want, but how can we commit resource until we have approval to release on that platform? It's backwards, it doesn't make sense."

 
Quote
"We're talking to (Xbox), and if it's low-friction, we'd definitely love to get it out this year," said Brown. "But if we're forced to do the open Windows version (as well) just to be able to release, then that's more work. And there are restrictions on that platform that are currently concerning, in terms of development. "It might be that we can give exclusive content, but we don't like the idea of exclusive content unless it's locked to that platform - so if we were to add Sackboy, Nathan Drake or something (into the PS4 version). Making something exclusive for the sake of it just feels an unnecessary step, even though it would be for a limited time."

 
Quote
Brown stresses that the team is aiming for "every platform that makes sense", so while a PS4 build has been submitted to Sony, consumers shouldn't expect to see an Xbox 360 or PS3 version. However, he is keen to bring Gang Beasts to Nintendo Switch. While he believes it would be more practical to develop and optimise for Xbox One before Nintendo's new console, the studio is having the initial conversations with Nintendo to see if they can gain access to hardware and dev kits. In fact, Brown even bought a Switch himself to see if the controllers might support Gang Beasts' frantic gameplay. "We get asked for the Switch and we are talking about it but there are certain things behind the scenes that we need to do - like optimising the characters - in order to hit that platform," he said.

Yeah before the gen got going strong, so many were hoping for a really short next-gen.

But now with the great games and especially mid gen refreshes, a 5 year gen would be so short. 7 feels solid.

I mean considering Sony has Destiny 2, Battlefront 2, and RDR2, I can't imagine it being any larger than those 3 games let alone those 3 combined.

Sony have all the bigger third party deals snapped up and I'd say they had zero interest paying for a deal with Ubisoft.  Microsoft would know this and I'd say they got AC quite cheap.  Probably just had to pay for the advertising and bundles and that's it.

I'm surprised they haven't announced Halo 6 with a big CGI trailer yet. Having a farther off game that people won't be skeptical of would do a lot to help their image.
