Steven Spielberg to produce TV show based on 'Halo' video games. Exclusive to Xbox Live. MS will finally be able to court Halo fans.

How is it a TV show if it is only on Live?

It will be only streamed from Xbox live, apparently. Exclusive content like Netflix has been doing lately.

@WTF_MAN,

The specs are close enough. Any cross platform game is going to develop for the lower spec anyway, and you'll be hard pressed to spot the differences. It will all depend on the platform implementation, not the hardware. And so far, both implementations suck, but MS's implementation sucks more, so Sony will probably win this round without some major changes from MS.

I agree that most games will probably look similar in quality... however, when developers eventually do push the hardware... the XBox will likely stutter, while the PS4 will be smooth as silk, by comparison.

DDR3 vs DDR5 for a GPU alone... look at the framerate difference in a budget card with the same GPU running DDR3 vs. DDR5. Then, if the 7790 vs. a 7970 rumor is actually true... there is no contest. Certain developers may take advantage of the PS4's hardware advantages, and we will likely see some games with better visuals on the PS4 than the Xbox One.

Xbox One vs. PS4 Hardware

Looks like the PS4 will kick Xbox in the balls...

- DDR3 vs. DDR5
- 3 OSes using up some of the 8GB (all mostly in RAM since they are switchable) vs. 1 OS
- 1.6GHz vs. 2.0GHz (Not that big of a deal)
- Kinnect monitoring for commands and visual input (even if game not using Kinnect... it still takes CPU cycles)
- 7790 GPU vs. 7970 GPU (Rumored)

That's a spanking... which is why MS didn't reveal their hardware specs.

A bit more clear:

Microsoft confirms 'pre-owned fee' for Xbox One

Definitely going PS4, here.

Especially if you need to pay MS a subscription fee to use a Netflix App.

Fuck Them.

I don't think it's "Adam Orth level", like the end of the article implies... but I'm sure he's probably in a little hot water, even though he's mainly picking on the thing for being less powerful than a current xbox 360.

When it's F2P, maybe I'll give it a shot (Depending on if it's not too restricted). I won't pay a subscription fee after GW2.

But until then... meh.

This isn't a sim, not even close. Not sure why'd you even attempt to make that comparison.

Obviously it isn't a SIM... which is why I was disssapointed. I'm saying that it would be nice to have some modern US Aircraft combat simulators, instead of these arcade shooters.

I'm dying for a modern remake of F-22 TAW.

3rd person copters? Looks like HAWX, which I wouldn't touch.

We need some modern U.S. Sims (F-22, F-35, etc.), dammit.

Amazing what backing off of ridiculous drm will do for business isn't it Ubisoft.

That's some seriously delusional thinking there. The DRM did not make this difference.

PC is roughly 9% of Ubisoft's sales. per VG247.

However, Q4 PC Sales are 20%, which both ass creed 3 and farcry 3 are part of, and this number is much closer to the Q4 PS3 sales of 33% and XBox 360 Sales of 27%.

So, it's not too far fetch to conclude that backing off ridiculous DRM probably made a significant difference in the PC sales of those games.

I certainly would have never bought Far Cry 3 if it had "always on-line DRM". Of course, those that feel the same wouldn't have had any impact on the console sales of those games.

Well at least now we know that Bioware wont be doing any new Star Wars games! Hooraay!

Yeah... they'd have you traversing the same backgrounds, respawn enemies, and have a shitty ending. I love the new Bioware!!!

Not that Battlefield Star Wars has my interest, either.

What I want to know is, why you are allowed to "shoot-em-up" in the server building compounds, alarms go off and everything, and the cops don't come???

But yet, in the previous video, if you chase down some dude that was going to kill his ex, and do a non-lethal take down with your baton... you suddenly have the whole department after you???

Wtf

If the same vulnerability is present in Morrowind released in 2002 is still present in Skyrim (released 2012), the odds are in my favor that the same vulnerability will be in the latest game release.

Considering every game since morrowind used the same engine and ESO is NOT using that engine, i would say the odds are NOT in his favor. This seems like a complete non-story.

Also, the only way to exploit it he says is by installing a mod. I can't tell you how many mods crashed my game back in the hayday. Seems like those were 'exploiting' the game as well.

Is that true, though? As far as I know Morrowind uses the Gamebryo engine v1.0 while Oblivion uses the second version. It really depends on whether the new engine is a completely rewrite or not.
It may be possible that the vulnerability emerges because it exists in the basic design of the engine, however small that probability might be.

Completely different engine. They used the Hero Engine like SW:TOR to prototype the game, while they built their own engine from scratch. So, there is no Netimmerse / Gamebryo code at all.

I don't give a rat's ass about the discussion about PC vs console - everyone with a brain knows that the only way the PC version will look inferior to the new consoles is if Ubisoft purposely gimps it

I'm not worried about the looks... I'm worried about mouse / keyboard support, graphics options like AA and FOV, etc.

Initially, they came across sounding like the PC was the lead platform... now it's sounding like the next gen consoles are the lead platform.

I wish they'd talk more about the PC version... I'm sick of hearing about the console versions, although if I do get a PS4... this will be one of the games I will probably purchase 2 of... one for the PC and another copy for the console.
