Title: Insider batting averages!
Post by: Legend on Dec 05, 2015, 08:30 PM
Let's use this thread to keep track at how good insiders are at hyping/informing us. Doesn't matter if they're legit or not, all that matters is if their info as we understood it comes true. That way we know how likely their future leaks are to be accurate.

So I'm taking this to mean that 4.0 is coming really soon and includes PSN name changes. Locked in!


Also means that Tidux was wrong about PSX.
Title: Re: Insider batting averages!
Post by: Rorono on Dec 06, 2015, 10:28 PM
It's true that it ended abruptly..
And it's also odd that Shu did not go up once? He usually does. I kept waiting for the "Shu section"..

This type of sentiment is why I felt the thread was necessary.

With insiders, everyone focuses on if they're bullshitting or telling the truth. Do these insiders really have secret information? Was their leak true at that time? Did they just get confused? etc. It's all about verifying their claims, not verifying their usefulness. Tidux caused us to believe Bend would be their; Bend wasn't their. Thus if next year he causes us to believe a different studio is going to announce a game, statistically speaking he's likely to be wrong again.

Hence using the term "batting averages." It's all about how probable their pending leaks will end up correct.

Leaked some info and was bish verified.

I'm still not sure about him. One of his leaks ended up wrong, but his excuse was identical to what I heard internally.

I don't consider myself an insider tbh. I just get hold of information either through work (such as market research reports) or through friends/contacts. Plus I also compile a lot of data during my spare time from publicly available sources and analyse the data points to draw various conclusions.

I'm not one of those people to make bold predictions and make it come across like it's fact.

Cream and Aqua, as well as members Cosmic Queso and John Harker on NeoGAF forums will always post trustworthy data as they have direct access to the data.

What I will say is that most of what I post is available publicly. If it's not available publicly and is something from a market research report or something I've been told/given then I won't post it unless I am more than 90% sure that -
1. The information is correct
2. I have interpreted the information correctly

We'll I just consider you so as you had NPD data before everyone on gaf except Cosmic at the time and your showed surprised (guessing ps4 #'s?) so that's why I thought so. Plus as you mention you post all the shipments for certain games in Asia so that's why. By the way that Ryng_Tolu guy sure likes your twitter  :o

Yup, this is one of the rare occasions that I had access to some of the NPD report before the PR came out. I was shocked because I predicted 2.2m for XB1 & PS4 combined but what we ended up with was 2.8m combined. A record for both platform holders.

Yes, Ryng_Tolu like to collect data as well so I would imagine that's why he tweets me a lot.

The weird thing about tidux is that if you watch Colin and Gregs PS podcast they'll mention him from time to time, call him their friend and seem to put faith in him.
Title: Re: Insider batting averages!
Post by: Rorono on Dec 16, 2015, 10:33 AM
Was any of this year's PS exclusives announced named with a P as the first letter of the name? Tidux said it'd be at E3. At the time I thought Parasite eve cause a few hints from other people had already been given in that sense, despite not trusting Tidux if seemed reasonable
I think the game is being made but announcement was delayed (much like Horizon might have been announced earlier if Sony wanted or how NNK2 was delayed from E3 to PSX), though if that's what he was talking about he was probably just taking it from those other people instead of having his own info.

PSVR $299 solo and ~$430 for bundle including move+camera+game.

 Reddit Rumor: PSVR price to be $428 (bundle) and $299 (standalone) - NeoGAF (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1181267)

This was published on some sites today, but nobody made a thread:https://www.reddit.com/r/playstation...obably_sell_a/ (https://www.reddit.com/r/playstationvr/comments/43fj9x/rumor_rep_mentioned_sony_would_probably_sell_a/)

rumors they were hoping to price the HMD at $299, which won't include the camera or PlayStation move controllers. But that they would probably have a separate starter kit where you could get the camera and move controllers and a game for around $129. For $428 + tax for the complete PSVR + camera + move controllers, would be a bargain!

 
My comment: This is pretty much what I expect them to do.
 Lock if too rumory :P

The other thing the Sony rep mentioned is that they were apparently hoping to support the first gen PSVR on the PS5, which should run it even better.

 
Sorry friend, but jobbers in the company don't know what's going on with the next platform.

Eh, I don't think that's the best comparison. People expect handhelds to be rather affordable and with Nintendo as their direct competitor they were pretty much forced to go with that trend.

All gaming VR headsets aside from Sonys are definitely going to have a much larger cost of entry than $300, the Occulus is $600 and from what I've heard people are expecting the Vive to be even more expensive. I don't know how much money Sony would lose per headset if they sold them for $300, but I'd imagine it being a sum that's simply not worth it, when they'll even have the clear price advantage at $450 or so.

That being said, I must say that $300 bucks for the standalone headset would definitely take a lot of the wind out of the broader commercial potential of the Vive and Occulus as the price differential would be just too big. It would also give VR a chance to hit the mainstream a lot faster though, which is why I'm sceptical, since Sony said they'd be happy with something like 1.5 million PSVRs being sold in 2016, at $300 I'd expect the PSVR to be able to sell up to 5 million in 2016 if it actually releases in the summer and the software support isn't totally horrible.

I guess we'll find out more at GDC, it'll be interesting.

Vita's an important comparison because its specs were crazy at release. OLED was super expensive at the time, processing power was far beyond everything else, and before the age of cheap smartphones. At the time I remember most educated price predictions were $400. The $250 reveal is a great reminder that Sony can price PSVR low even if it has cutting edge tech.

In the general sense PSVR seems fairly inexpensive to make. OLED+breakout box+optics+plastic. If they used off the shelf components when possible it could cost $199 and still make a profit. Reason OR and Vive are so expensive is because they're using highly customized parts and didn't design these things to be cheap. OR invented their own fabric type for pete's sake!

To be fair, everything is custom. Custom OLED display with custom pixel placement, RBG sub pixels and 120 hz refresh rate. In many ways this screen is actually better than the two found in the rift.  Optics are just plain expensive. Also custom as they can't just pull optics from their camera line as these are much larger.  Even the strap is more advanced than what in in the rift.  The only thing they could have pulled from the self would have been the parts in the break out box, but somehow I doubt they aren't custom is some way.

From what I can tell Oculus on has two advantages, The ability to use two cameras and 2 higher resolution screens. Two screen could be an advantage but I doubt it's really worth the extra cost. The total package isn't more advanced that PSVR. They just seem that way with their fancy textures and design, Which i do find superior to psvr.

I'm kind of talking about two things at the same time, but I'm too lazy right now to fix it.

Lots of new rumors to add and others to update.

Kotaku reporting a PS4k to be released probably within 2016. It will be able to play games in 4k and play VR games with upgraded graphics. Rumor: Ps4k (http://vizioneck.com/forum/index.php?topic=3351.0)

ZhugeEX has also heard these rumors, although he's heard the device cannot do 4k and upgrades are only avaliable for VR: Rumor: Ps4k (http://vizioneck.com/forum/index.php?msg=153077)

Reddit user Idriss2Dev has leaked an image of supposedly the NX. The design is based off an already known about pattent: Codename (NX) : NintendoNX (https://www.reddit.com/r/NintendoNX/comments/4avdcg/codename_nx/) and gaf (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1198233)


PSVR has an official price of $399 standalone and $499 with camera+move. That makes DemonNite right and Reddit Sirdomino wrong. Also Forza 6 and FH3 on Windows 10 are right.

I only said that we'll get more NX info before E3. I think (and now this is personal opinion) it'll be more related to a full reveal than a "we're working on it and we'll see more at E3" so that's why I said that I don't know if this new info will be in the briefing meeting or a separate direct.
 But you can bet that you're going to get more NX info before E3.

I'm a Game Developer working in a mid-sized Dev Team working on an PC indie game port in Europe.[/font]

 I am willing to provide confirmation / specific details to mods.[/font]

 There has been a lot of false leaks regarding NX, all i can confirm at this point is that it's not a handheld. It is a console and it will be announced late April and will be released around Holiday 2016.[/font]

 At least 1 Nintendo Game launching this year will use Unreal Engine 4, our game is also using Unreal Engine 4.[/font]

 If you want confirmation regarding UE4, research some of the upcoming games Nintendo Projects on linkedin, lot of Nintendo game devs have listed UE4 for unannounced upcoming games (Wii U and 3DS don't have any UE4 projects being developed by Nintendo studies at the moment).[/font]

 There is a genuine dev on Reddit who can't give you the name of the console at this moment and more specific details, our team can (which is less known and has less known games).[/font]

 The final and last thing i can say is that the power leaks from SuperMetalDave are true, is using ARM Architecture and a is Console more powerful than the XBO/PS4.[/font]

 Don't worry too much, and one last secret: The name is 'Nintendo Extra' (NEX)[/font]

 https://www.reddit.com/r/Nintendo_NX/comments/4cyr2t/details_regarding_nx_console_nx_ue4_dev/[/color][/font]

 To the mods: Please contact me through my email address if you want further/more specific details.[/font]

 Update 1:[/font]

 I haven't received a message from the mods, but in the meanwhile: to clear one thing up, some genuine leakers have said ARM, some have said x86, the NX is using both but one for the home console and one for the upcoming handheld. In essence, the ARM architecture is a small piece of the overall NX home console and specifically done to port handheld games to the Home console, not the other way around. Devs are not forced to create games for it.[/font]

 Name: NEX (Nintendo Extra) Platform: Home console[/font]

 NEX CPU is about 30% more powerful than XBO/PS4 NEX GPU is 50% more than powerful XBO/PS4, also more RAM. NEX RAM is 12GB RAM, 3 for NinOS, 9 for Games.[/font]

 The leaks about the 2 different controllers are indeed true. In general, this is a very good console and a new time for Nintendo to gain back support of third-party devs and core gamers in general.[/font]

 Update 2: In contact with a Reddit mod for verification in the next 24 hours.[/font]

 Update 3: I have sent proof of my connections with Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe but Reddit has multiple steps of verification. The mod needs more specific info for verification, info i'm considering at the moment. Hope you all understand what i mean.[/font]

 Update 4: I have sent more proof to the mods, i hope to get verified in the next 24 hours.[/font]

 In the meanwhile, some info about the RAM: The amount of RAM is 12GB DDR3, 3GB reserved for the new NinOS (Unified Nintendo OS), 9GB for Games. In regards to some comments asking why Nintendo will use DDR3 not faster RAM? It's because the overall architecture is powerful and doesn't need expensive RAM.[/font]

 Update 5: There is a Nintendo Direct planned before the Nintendo Investor meeting. Nintendo will announce it within the next few days.[/font]

 Key points my sources highlighted to me:[/font]

 NinOS
 Nintendo Missions
 Zelda news
 NX News

So an AMD APU 30% better on CPU front than the extreme weak PS4/Xbox One CPU and a GPU 50% better than PS4's GPU.

With slow DDR3.

You know that exactly the same mistake did with Wii U hardware? A machine a bit more strong than PS360 with serious RAM bootleneck.

An APU like that in 16nn can be over 30% cheaper than actual PS4's APU.

This thread has tons of NX leaks http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1207224 (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1207224)

10x says "The NX will be more powerful than the PS4. By a noticeable amount." Smash, Zelda, Mario Maker, and Splatoon are all being ported. System is x86 CPU and polaris-like GPU at 14nm. MercurySteam is making a currently announced game for the system. FFXV is being ported. Not having a simultaneous launch. Tons of new games and new IPs. The NX gimmick is that it has a refined Wii U gamepad that works over internet.

Emily Rodgers says Smash, Zelda, Mario Maker, and Splatoon are being ported. She also says that 10x is wrong about the gimmick and hardware specs, though she does say it is stronger than PS4.

LCGeek says the NX CPU is ~20% stronger than PS4.

Yup. Also adding Ruin4r since it basically confirms he's in the know.

Reddit user Ruin4r https://www.reddit.com/r/PS4/comments/27bmkf/sonys_e3_showings/ (https://www.reddit.com/r/PS4/comments/27bmkf/sonys_e3_showings/)

He says Dead Don't Ride, Crash, The Last Guardian, The Last of Us 2, and "unnamed space project" were to be announced at Sony e3 2014. Obviously he was wrong with all of this, but it seems the games themselves are real.

 All I needed from you is to confirm the Christmas/snow theme - that news alone has gotten me so excited that I plan on playing DR2, Case West, and DR3. Previously I only played DR1 and Case Zero. Honestly Christmas/snow elevates this game to a must purchase for me. I'm really excited about this game and I can see it being a highlight of Microsoft's conference. This E3 will be great. :)

 
I'm with you on that. It's my most anticipated game (not including Legion) solely because of that. It's part of why I loved The Division's NYC @ Christmas setting, and why Arkham Origins is my favourite Arkham game (for the time being)

 I love snow so much. I'm on winter/snow overload with Rise of the Tomb Raider - it's do awesome there and it would be amazing to kill zombies in winter.

 
The game takes place during the holiday rush. There should be snow outside, but the mall is all Christmas-ed up :)

Idk if that necessarily contradicts, he could be saying there is 4 player co-op but that the focus is single player.  

I recall someone saying that Shinobi just said that a Bethesda game was getting remastered, but they weren't sure he said Skyrim.  Although, Skyrim makes the most sense I think.

 “Sharing information can be somewhat addictive,” Dale said. “It’s something that, while it does have its stresses attached to it, there is also something very rewarding about doing it. And I know there are times where I have probably said things that were either granular or I didn’t need to say, because sometimes you just wanna say, ‘Hey I know a few more things,’ so that when information starts coming out it’s obvious that OK, yeah, you did know more.’”

It mostly consisted of codenames and didn’t offer any useful information, but it was accurate.
 Later, SuperMetalDave reported a number of NX rumors on his YouTube channel that proved to be very much false, including a claim that the NX would use AMD’s x86 architecture and be more powerful than the PlayStation 4. If you’re wondering about the discrepancy: According to one person familiar with the situation, SuperMetalDave got his hands on that 3DS marketing plan because of an e-mail that was accidentally sent to a large group of people, then passed along to him. He didn’t have any real “inside” information beyond that e-mail, which might help explain why his subsequent reports were off the mark.

She made several outlandish claims and had a tendency to delete tweets and posts every few months after things stopped panning out. But in the Switch era, she’s been on the ball, correctly reporting on some hardware details (plus the existence of Paper Mario for Wii U) as well as others that may or may not pan out tonight. (Rogers declined to comment on this story.)

 “I’m confident in my own reporting, but things do change,” Phillips said. “It has been fascinating, following the Switch line-up so closely over the past six months, to see how late things get finalised. I think there’s a belief that release dates and announcement timings get nailed down months in advance when actually they are incredibly fluid. So yes, there have been times when I’ve read things and thought, ‘Hmm, that doesn’t sound like it’s the case anymore.’ And it’s certainly kept me on my toes—the biggest example has been Zelda’s release date—now back on for March but previously pencilled in for summer.”

I updated the op more. So many insiders suck.

Let me know if you've heard any rumors I should add.

These are fun things to keep track of.  

A few insiders are excellent.  Anything from Shinobi is practically be considered official.  

A few insiders clearly aren't insiders and are just BS'ing.  

Then there are a few others where you aren't sure what they are.  Have a few things right that seem reasonably difficult to be predictions and a few things wrong that make it seem like they don't know anything.  

Then there's ones like Demonnite, where you read their posts and you absolutely know he knows something, but he doesn't share anything anyways... So it barely matters.

Huh it turns out I hadn't read this thread in a while and the first post I had to read was that horizon might be delayed to early 2017. Time does fly.

So looking at OP, the most reliable leakers are shinobi, kotaku and polygon. Good to know, I'll avoid all mentions of their names in the next two weeks. Maybe you should add for Zhuge that he leaked two conferences fully as well

So apparently this guy leaked the title of Fallout 76, and now he's teasing a bunch of other games.

This guy correctly leaked the title Fallout 76 and it's supposed genre 4 hours ahead of the official announcement as seen in this post (https://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/8n7i4o/bethesda_is_announcing_fallout_vault_76/).

 He has since went on to share more supposed information about other E3 conferences:

 Bethesda will have more to announce at E3, no Starfield (https://www.reddit.com/r/KingdomHearts/comments/8nbm28/kh3_kingdom_hearts_3_will_be_released_in_2018/dzuag0a/)

 Kingdom Hearts 3 releasing this year (https://www.reddit.com/r/KingdomHearts/comments/8nbm28/kh3_kingdom_hearts_3_will_be_released_in_2018/)

 Death Stranding gameplay will be shown at Sony's conference (https://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/8n7i4o/bethesda_is_announcing_fallout_vault_76/dztu80h/)

 Sunset Overdrive 2, new Gears of War, Halo and Forza Horizon at Microsoft's conference (https://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/8n7i4o/bethesda_is_announcing_fallout_vault_76/dzto3rj/)

 That Nintendo E3 Showroom Instruction document is apparently legit, new Punch - Out, F - Zero, Star Fox and titles for Fire Emblem, Metroid Prime 4 and Yoshi, Fortnite and Fallout 3 Anniversary (https://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/8n7i8b/can_anyone_confirm_if_this_leak_is_fake_or_not/)

 Cyberpunk 2077 will have a gameplay trailer (https://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/8n7i4o/bethesda_is_announcing_fallout_vault_76/dzu9zor/?context=8&depth=9)

 Possible nudge at ES6 being announced next year  (https://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/8n7i4o/bethesda_is_announcing_fallout_vault_76/dzu1ubk/)

 Some of the stuff listed here is basically a given but there's some interesting titles in there as well. He'll probably post more in the near future, as it stands right now he's pretty credible.Last edited by SmileyAja - 27 minutes ago[/color]

KH3 finally releasing would be crazy, lol.

Also who's making Sunset Overdrive 2?

We should use this thread more  :P

Nothing they've said is too crazy so far.

EDT: I don't think they're legit. All of their info is obvious and already highly assumed except for Sunset Overdrive 2 and the Nintendo leak. They are just going with easy things.

The only thing in there that makes me think BS, is the part about DS5 having a camera.  Maybe he just means it works with the camera. 

$500 is a little iffy

Kinda like this thread shows, there seems to be a trend with insiders getting a high profile leak and then using that as a springboard to just post random predictions.

Yeah, I think that dude is deliberately bullshitting on some of the things he's posted.

I don't believe $500 and I really don't see the point of a camera inside the controller.

If I remember right, he was right about like 2 of these things, and they weren't unpredictable.  

A lot of the rest is definitely wrong.

Some of this stuff I thought was a bit silly, but wasn't there a patent or something showing cameras on a controller?  
Wrong about Anthem, but considering how that turned it out, it definitely should have....

I just revisited this thread a couple days ago too!

It would be great to have more members working to keep it updated. It's really nice to be able to just quickly pull up an insider's track record and get a general sense of the probability of their info being correct. Especially since it can be hard to remember specific posts and how they were interpreted at the time.

Twitter user @Tidux, who's known for leaking inside information about gaming products that turns out the be accurate, said that the final dev kits of the PS5 are out and the PS5's performance is better than the Xbox Series X in all the most important areas. Here's the insider's tweet on the subject:

Lol I was thinking about this thread earlier, was hilarious to check the OP and see that everything Legend tracked for Tidux turned out to be wrong.

This thread also reminded me that Zhuge posted here for a bit, and he's really blown up since then. Man, this forum could have been so much bigger :(

We were definitely held back by an identity crises of sorts. If we just followed the ResetEra approach and were an unapologetic reboot of the chertz we could have really grown. Right now we're closer to our PM hangout days than an actual forum but I think it will all work out eventually.

Maybe with next gen we should reboot this thread. If people post archives of the rumors and our interpretations of what they mean, I can add them to the OP.
