I think I'd heard it's just one spot in the Campaign as well. Seems like some serious cherry picking if all they are talking about is one little section of the campaign goes below 60fps.

Maybe it's a constant problem, but I believe this all started from someone mentioning that hte PS4 version dropped below 60fps on a section of Seoul when you were throwing special grenades. On the xbox they just dropped the res to make sure it held 60fps.

I assume in MP it's just 60fps at 1080p the whole time? Seems like a silly thing to be reporting on if that is all there is.

A recent movie comes to mind, Rampage. I've not heard anyone say that inspired mass shootings. I don't know why this game is any different. I'm interested to see what a reviewer has to say about it. I hope it's more than just grotesque killing, I'd heard that all that stuff is optional. It seems like a more extreme version of postal.

Found one! (And it's barely noticeable)

Xbox One vs PS4 Advanced Warfare

I have a real hard time seeing the difference, I think I see it in some shots but the lighting is slightly darker on the Xbox One version capture so it could just be my imagination.

There are a few shots taht seem slightly better on the ps4 but nothing that jumps out. Without these side by side video's I doubt anyone will notice.

I did notice some differences with lighting though, in one shot the xbox light would change on the gun so it was illuminated one second then it'd go black or very dark then back. Like it wasn't able to change the intensity of the lighting on the side of the gun but it could turn it on and off. On the PS4 the lighting on the side was just slowly changing the whole time like you'd expect from a fire. (a burning crate was the light source) That might be more of a bug than an actual graphical choice though.

I would say the ps4 looked better in a lot of shots but it was hard to see without having them side by side.

Haven't found any good comparison video's of the xbox one version and ps4 version on youtube. the only one I did find had the full screens of both smushed down so both fit on screen then the video was at the fuck is that helpful!?

Each screen is 1080p, then you smoosh those down horizontally so you can see both in full in one 16x9 shot, then you upload that in 720p.

Someone must be making a good one...

That's hilarious.

1360x1080? Jeez, I assume the PS4 runs at 1920x1080?

Are we going to have another media blitz about how resolution doesn't matter and it all looks fine? (IE make sure you don't piss off MS!)

The fire phone is basically a Kindle phone right? Like it's all amazon all the time?

They should have just called it the Kindle Phone and charged $100 or $200 contract free, carrier free.

This move by them is just hilariously stupid considering the competition. The google Phone up to the nexus 5 was a better deal all around. If you're going to sign a deal with Att and pay $200 you can get a way better phone that runs off google stuff.

The free prime membership at least made me curious enough to look, but it took about two seconds to close the window and move on.

Heh, just went over the website to check for a F2P option. There isn't one. How this game launched without a F2P option is bizarre to me.

You'd think going to the website would have some offer of a free trial at least, a week or something. Nada. Pay us $60 to try the game! It's a fucking online game that won't work without a constant internet connection directly to them.

How does it make any sense not to offer at least a free trial!?

just release the game already....


I do worry that these guys will burn out fan patience with how much they are showing all the time. It hasn't happened yet for me, with each month that passes something improves enough that I'm excited to fire up the game again. New Hangars, new ship models, new gun mechanics, it's no small feat to keep this process entertaining over such a long period of time.

I'd love to see how much money is going into all these trade show visits because it seems like a really robust advertising budget for this game. (Money well spent in my opinion)

Meh, I'd be cautiously optimistic about battlefront if they pulled the plug on hard-line...

Seems like a medal of Honor beta access deal is being planned. Buy this POS if you want to play battlefront!

All I want them to do is colorize the tech web. The techs all look the same and if they just made the icons in color it would be SO much easier to understand.

The xenomass pools for example, make that a green icon that looks like the pools of ooze! That weird dead insect thing with yellow legs, a major resource, make that hte same color on the icons!

It will be a lot of fun to see these games running on newer systems. I hope they hold up well.

Wouldn't it be awesome to see Disney give the Star Wars license to the DCS folks so they could make these games with fully functional cockpits!

Flying around in an xwing or tie fighter in the DCS world would be fucking incredible.

Has there been any major discussion re: GG recently? I know reddit still deletes comments and threads that use any mention of it. In a thread somehow related people kept saying the subject that can't be named or something like that.

It shouldn't surprise anyone that drama will come from Twitter so keeping the debate discussion there makes it easy to constantly make claims like it's just a smoke screen to harass women.

What's most interesting is that there are ppl losing jobs, sites losing money, and now we've got this unified response from several sources trying to remind us that it's really about harassment.

All this just makes it clear how shady and manipulative gaming media can be. I'm sick of all their crap. One podcast I listed to this week had someone complaining that this is starting to have real consequences, people are losing jobs, sites are losing money and it's things have to change. He was talking about all the harassment aimed at sites like Kotaku, destructiod and polygon to name a few.

I could only shake my head... The fuck are you complaining about? Consumers having standards?

Best advice I can give to gamers is font visit those sites. YouTube commentators like total biscuit and angry how give better analysis of games because they don't have to beg publishers for things just to stay afloat. It's all about money in the end and publishers live having these sites that cater to them at the expense of consumers.

It's WH40k chess.

Pppfffff.....(*throws something*)

Can we drive a land raider across the chess board and run over every god damn thing? Give me the rights to make a game and I'll make a mod that lets you choose a tank and drive through someone else's chess game and gun down every stupid figure on the board then drive off. Chess boards as far as you can see, just go nuts in your tank.

Hmm, I'm interested to see an RTS 40k game without Relic involved... Went back and tried playing Dawn of War 2 recently, I think when they patched up the older additions to use steam, god that game bugs me.

Ugh, that game is more work than it is fun. Take this control point, take that energy point, go back and retake the control point, take other go back and defend control point, ok upgrade energy, wait, protect, wait, upgrade, wait wait wait, ok build unit, wait wait wait, fucking let me just have some units and go blow shit up!

20GB to me sounds like this game was under a ton of pressure to make it's release and was behind schedule. I presume they took what they had "ready" and sent it off as gold then started packing up all the stuff that should have been in that build and making it something you could download.

I would assume the testing done was minimal and this game is going to have a lot of issues at least.

If they announced this was free for premium bf4 players I think I'd give a little of my attention. As a stand alone game they want people to pay before they play I have zero interest. F2p option might work too, but no desire to spend money before playing the game or watching someone else play after launch.

The game only running at 900p / 30fps on pc makes a much sense as it does on ps4. Both have better hardware than the xbox one and won't have trouble running it above that. (assuming the pc is newish)

I love how many times I keep hearing there is nothing wrong with games running at 900p, they still look good.

No shit, that isn't the issue. A game running at 900p 30fps on Xbox One will run better on the ps4 and depending on the specs run A SHIT TON better on the PC. Fucking games media proving they are glorified advertisers every week lately.

Is publicizing death threats a good way to prevent violence? It seems to me that repeating what the email said, even mentioning it publicly, is what the sender wants. Wouldn't it be smarter to just plan to have more security and try and catch the person?

If these threats are so common why take them seriously enough that you need to warn the public? If this threat is legit then cancel the event. Seems like twisted marketing, this guy's threatening anyone who wants to go to my event! Stand up to this man by attending my event! Tickets of sale here. Terrorism tax added because of death threats! (*tax does not imply the money goes to the county or state... Or anyone not named anita)

News Comments > DICE: BF4 Launch "Absolutely" Damaged Player Trust

Seems like this is the start of a 6 month plan to try and sell Hardline. At the end of the day this company is only looking for a way to get $60 out of you.

First we'll admit our mistake. We'll spend 2 weeks letting fans no we screwed up, we've changed, we're not going to do that again, blah blah blah. Then we'll start talking about how we have been spending tons of extra time improving our servers for Hardline, the best battlefield game yet! Now we're into December after the rush of new games come out and things have quieted down a bit. We'll create a video that looks like our devs just threw it together, lots of footage in our studio, and we'll show the game working and people paying it and having fun.

Then we'll spend some more time talking about how much we've changed, it's a new year people love hearing about changes around the new year. We're a new dice! That will be our message for 2015.

February we'll start talking about all the awesome features that hardline will have and we'll announce the preorder details and bonus stuff you get with it! We'll even have free stuff for the game to show people how sorry we are. Everyone gets a custom pistol with scope to show how much we appreciate them!

We should be seeing tons of pre-orders and in March we'll be on track to sell a million copies, we'll release march 15 or March 30, whatever the pre-order numbers look best on and then we'll start working on the sales campaign for Battlefront!

*yes man* Will Hardline be any good?

*AD man* Have you been listening? Who cares if it's good, once you got pre-order numbers it's time to move on to the next project and ship that POS.
