Never said I believed it.

I was just pointing out that nVidia has been doing a lot of gpu-super computers for processing in the cloud, lately... and I don't think they'd give AMD a license to run PhysX on their hardware... so I conclude that the announcement has more to do with the "cloud processing" thing that MS announced. Whether it actually works to any significant degree or not, is a different story.

Nvidia and AMD playing nicely together? That's amazing.

I doubt it will be local calculations on the AMD hardware... it will probably be the cloud shit they were talking about.

Video: Watch us flail in front of the Xbox One’s new Kinect

That actually creeped me out even more. I can't help but think about Orwellian surveillance potential with that thing.

Even if you have it switched to offline mode?

Yup, it's always in offline mode except for when my games stop launching... then I have to turn on the NIC and put steam in in online mode... let it do what it wants for a few minutes, put it back in offline mode, turn off the NIC.

Then I can launch my Steam games for another month or so fully offline.

Steam's offline mode has to check in every few weeks, or at least that's the consensus since Valve hasn't been very open about it.

It might be a month, it might be 2 weeks.

Yeah... I have the same issue as those links say.
It makes me want to crack my older games that I know won't ever get a new patch.

  • Steam will let you play offline, indefinitely. Xbox will not.


  • Not quite...or at least I haven't figured out how to do it.

    I run my Gaming rig with my NIC off... and Steam still forces me to connect once a month-ish, or the game won't launch.

    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.
