I laughed when I saw the conference, it was even worse than I was expecting, it looks like a ******* brick, and it's not backward compatible. They boast 8GB of RAM, but in all seriousness, I was expecting more, nowadays it should be more. But PC users will let them have their fun.
User avatar #19 to #10 - PrincessTwilight (05/22/2013) [-]
What could you possibly do with 8gb of ram on a video game console?

Even the absolute most demanding games don't use more than 2gb.
User avatar #22 to #19 - reaperriley ONLINE (05/22/2013) [-]
Dont know what you are talking about some games take up 4-6GB of RAM for me. But I have 16GB of RAM to do animation and video editing.

User avatar #25 to #23 - reaperriley ONLINE (05/22/2013) [-]
Planetside 2 is one of them, uses about 5GB of RAM in the bigger 300+ people fights.

8GB of RAM exclusively dedicated to games is ******* gigantic, almost flagrantly unnecessary.

I can get Skyrim to 6-7GB between VRAM and RAM (and I only can't get higher because my I don't have enough VRAM to go higher).

The conference was pretty terrible. It looks like to me the ps4 has one the console wars this time, I'm a pc gamer so it doesn't really even concern me, but I like to keep up to date. I guess it's good that the new platforms are x64 based though, that should make it easier to port to pc, so that should mean we get better ports.

I said the conference looked terrible and also said that it seems like the ps4 would win. Just speculating on what's going to happen with what I currently know. Didn't say for a fact that one has already won, although if everything that's being said is true turns out to be true then sony definitely won this time around.

i actually like the wiiu more gamewise and gimmic wise(it has more diverse game selection) but the only weakness wiiu has is limited games
User avatar #32 to #31 - cozer (05/22/2013) [-]
Yeah, the wiiu doesn't really have anything exclusive to it. Nintendo needs to stick with mobile gaming imo, they do mobile extremely well, but their consoles are kind of meh. I don't want to appear as a pc elitist, but I think that people just need to get with the times and get a gaming pc. It would cost about 550-600 bucks to build my computer now and it runs all the new games and stable frame-rates with good graphics settings. Plus it's a computer, so it has more uses than just gaming.
User avatar #34 to #32 - amegaara (05/22/2013) [-]
i know where you are coming from but i picked the wiiu as my best gaming console in this gen because it has things you cant do with a pc (i have a gaming laptop its pretty decent) and no dont tell me to pick a rig i cant afford it and i move a lot so a gaming laptop is the one for me

anyways what i liked is the un symmetrical controllers which could be pretty awesome if more games used it
User avatar #50 to #34 - cozer (05/22/2013) [-]
Personally I wouldn't own a wiiu, mainly because of the lack of games, money, and the fact that it doesn't really appeal to me. I do think that it's a really awesome concept though, and if it had more exclusive titles on it that it would be alot better of a value.
User avatar #70 to #50 - amegaara (05/22/2013) [-]
i said in my 1st post that the only thing holding me back from getting it is the lack of games
User avatar #71 to #70 - cozer (05/22/2013) [-]
Sorry, it's late and i've been up a while lol. Anyways, yeah the wiiu could have been alot better than what it was.

Can someone explain what the pre rendered thing is about

And what the situation will be with downloading games / pre owned games/ discs and CDs
#117 to #107 - anon (05/22/2013) [-]
People are complaining about the prendered stuff because they think it means its like a cutscene or trailer. In reality the videos of the games are using the REAL in game assets/models, but were prendered because the games are not ready to run on the xbox yet. The only game that was running on the xbox itself was the cod video, but people also think its prerenderd because it looks too good (goes to show how cool the xbox really is).

You can download games. You can sell your old games. There is NO FEE for preowned games. Game can be bought on disk, but most will require installing to the hard drive.
#209 to #117 - anon (05/22/2013) [-]
No. Pre-rendered means the image coming up on the screen was not actually generated by the hardware of the xbox, but rather the much higher hardware capabilities of a graphics workstation. Kinect is an overrated and non-working sack of festering crap, and the Xbox One will have absolutely no backwards compatibility with xbox 360, even for XBox Live Arcade titles. Moreover, installing a used game on an xbox registered with another username will require paying a fee equivalent to the initial price of the game. That and all the tv **** and nfl tat, my verdict on the Xbox One is that it is worth nothing more than a 10-pound steaming pile of rotting crocodile dung.

But for those specs, I'd be spending a lot of less. Buddy of mine has an Alienware (I know, I know), and he paid 2.5k for it. A BEAST of a machine, to be sure, but if I want rig-like PC experiences on a laptop, I'd probably end up paying $500 less than that.

Whereas the Xbox One might be... $300, $400? Not made considering the insides.

But **** that, it looks like it's gonna be all about "TV" and movies and social media and ******** .

Thats actually a lot when you consider thats 8 gigs of ram DEDICATED to gaming, far more than the average computer will dedicate.
#96 to #24 - morkotlap (05/22/2013) [-]
Complete and utter ******** .

www.gameinformer.com/b/features/archive/2013/05/21/interview-with-xbox-o nes-chief-product-officer-marc-whitten.aspx

The xbox one will dedicate only 5gbs od ram to the games. That's far weaker that ordinary PC, since GPU's RAM gets completely dedicated to gaming and even with browser on, OS will hardly ever use over 2 gigs.

So it's a sluggish machine that will again slow the gaming industry for another 10 years.

Please, save a few more monies more wherever you live and buy a PC instead. For a hundred dollar more you can get actual useful hardware that won't age, is easy to repair and upgrade and foremost: You are free to do with it however you please.

#28 to #2 - anon (05/22/2013) [-]
it only has 8 gigs. its also only a quad core, so by far not better than a PC.
#68 to #28 - anon (05/22/2013) [-]
They said it has eight cores.

But yeah, top of the line PC's generally have 16GB-32GB, even though it's not all used, because most games are being held back by the last generation of consoles (.5GB).

Hopefully we have finally reached the point where they will not be held back by 8GB, but I suppose I can get my Skyrim to around 6-7GB between VRAM and normal RAM (And that is designed to only use .5GB), so it will probably start holding back PC again within a year or two.

Technically, a console is a highly specialized, very hard to mod, computer.

I'm never getting any xbox ever. the main reason that i care about new consoles is because they will mostly set the norm for games. a lot of games will be made with console in mind resulting is the game being toned down so it can run on a crappy console.

User avatar #97 to #94 - epicextreme (05/22/2013) [-]
basically i'm to retarded to build one i don't have a ******* clue how. i've tryed playing on pc and in my opinion the controls are to difficult using the keyboard i mean. thats like having an xbox controller with about 10 "a" buttons but only one of them is the right one. granted you have to get used to it but i couldnt be bothered when you dont really have to. i dont agree with the way some people torrent games i mean people want to be playing games for generations to come but how are games industrys supposed to create new games when people simply download them illegally? with the consoles they are the people buying and making sure that not only dothey play the game they will play following games after it. sure the internet is paid for on the 360 but 40 pound a year isnt that bad. at the end of the day arguments between pc and console gaming a waste of time the argument is based purely on opinion there is no greater form of gaming its just what people prefer.
#104 to #97 - morkotlap (05/22/2013) [-]
PC's give you freedom. You can BUY the controller for USB and you're set. About the legality issue> Since Gaben started Steam, no-one pirates the games that are up there, since it's just easier to buy them. You have to try to believe there is a retail service that isn't out to completely screw you over, but Valve and gog proved that piracy was a problem caused by the industry's poor customer service, rather than customers unwillingness to pay.

Also, PC about the strength of an xbox one is there for 600-700$. And since it's more versatile, better repairable, upgradable and completely yours, it's far better long term investment.
User avatar #98 to #97 - hitlersoneballsack (05/22/2013) [-]
there are PC stores that can build them for you and it seems simple enough, and I found the PC controls odd at first but through time I have grown on it and I find the ps3 controller harder to use than the keyboard, but if you really don't like the keyboard you can still use the Xbox controller
User avatar #100 to #98 - epicextreme (05/22/2013) [-]
but if pcs are so good then where is the pc2?
yeah i know what you mean. i used to have the ps1 then the ps2 then i got an xbox now i find the playstation controls ******* diffcult. i just prefer the consoles i like the idea of having the discs and stuff as stupid as that sounds
User avatar #101 to #100 - hitlersoneballsack (05/22/2013) [-]
does not sound all that stupid,problem with discs is they need maintenance often as they become scratched or just refuse to work, ever since my ps3's disc spinner became nonfunctional (happened a few weeks ago) I am now moving on to PC's for good and I might not buy consoles for a long time.
User avatar #102 to #101 - epicextreme (05/22/2013) [-]
when you buy a disc for the xbox you can download it ont the games area so when you play the game the disc is'nt spinning prevening damage the disc needs to be in to show you've got the game its just to make sure it doesnt get scratched. i havent done it yet i havent took the time to figure out why
User avatar #105 to #102 - hitlersoneballsack (05/22/2013) [-]

It's been rumored console game prices will rise from 60 and 65 to 70 and 75 USD. MS and Sony are trying to wage a war on used games and they don't even realise that they're ******* up badly with not working on their goddam Digital Distribution Services. I'm not too familiar with Sony's, but MS took what, 5 months to put Halo 4 on their service and they made you pay 60 bucks up front for it, then they announced that all digital downloads won't be transferred to their new console. They should be putting games up immediately and for a LOWER price.

#147 to #142 - doyoulikechorizo (05/22/2013) [-]
I can possibly say it as there is no real distinction between the two otherwise wouldn't everybody just buy the PS3? There's a difference between being a 'fanboy' and being outright deluded which you would have to be to buy a machine that costs roughly the same as another machine (even more expensive in my case), yet it is inferior to it. I have played both and had similar experiences with them both. The Xbox seemed to freeze less, but when I played PS3 games randomly would freeze and then continue sort of like lag.. Overall I don't mind either console but I prefer the xbox.
User avatar #157 to #147 - norwegiandude (05/22/2013) [-]
I've played both too. Xbox costs to go online with and has a ****** up controller. PS4 is slightly more expensive, but has better graphics (my opinion) and works like a champ. It didn't stop when it hit the ground for the 5. time, but it died some years ago. I can't blame it though, because it was drowned by some thousands litres of water that was flooding mye basement at the time...
#167 to #157 - doyoulikechorizo (05/22/2013) [-]
I have found xbox's online to be worth the money and I am happy to pay £40 a year for it. And the controller is actually designed to comfortably fit into your hand, whereas I find the ps3 controller to be too small really.. I'm not saying either are better I'm just disagreeing that the ps3 is.
User avatar #174 to #167 - norwegiandude (05/22/2013) [-]
I hate the clumpy xbox controller and it makes my finger hurt. I agree that the PS3 controller is a little small, but the PS4 controller will be bigger I think. The online function shouldn't cost money. And PS3 could play Blu-Rays!

I've never tried to play a blu-ray in anything so really, I couldn't care less. I wouldn't have even noticed the function if I had a Ps3. Also, you just seem to be hating on the xbox for some reason which is kind of pointless.

im a boy. but its still opinions and not hardware that says what people likes the best. ps3 was best for you and xbox was best for me.

Oh, I just think that Jamie sounds a bit girly. PS3 was best and Xbox was best for you. That's the way!
#214 to #213 - jamiemsm ONLINE (05/22/2013) [-]
hehe its allways been my name since i was 12 years old. it comes from my old favorite skater Jamie thomas. and msm is my initials

Yeah, guess I'm cool with that.
User avatar #124 - ianus (05/22/2013) [-]
why is everyone so pissed that you get an all-in one and not just a simple console? i think xbox one is awsome with all the possibilities it has. people should learn that xbox one is not a console, it's an multimedia center with a console inside and some other stuff
#128 to #124 - laxwarriord (05/22/2013) [-]
Because instead of focusing on getting as much out of a console as they can, performance wise, they slap on a load of social media ******** that we already have on just about everything else
#152 to #128 - jamiemsm ONLINE (05/22/2013) [-]
and still when people found out what ps3 could they thought it was cool ?

Your comment has no relevance, there will always be people who like gimmicks.

They have to appeal to everyone. Plus if you play more with friends and such, I would think it would be more likely to keep playing with them and buying new games to continue doing so.
User avatar #129 to #128 - winsauceiswin (05/22/2013) [-]
maybe they DID get as much out of it as a console AND slapped some other **** on? i didn't watch the full reveal and i don't know the specs but i'm sure they have to at least be on par with ps4 right?
User avatar #138 to #129 - ianus (05/22/2013) [-]
the specs are: (from www.engadget.com/2013/05/21/xbox-one-hardware-and-specs/)

8 core AMD Jaguar CPU
8GB RAM DDR3 (PS is going to have DDR5)
USB 3.0 ports (for whatever, we'll see)
500GB HDD (probably you can have bigger ones, at least i hope so)
Blue-Ray Player (well obvious as a media center)
And Wi-Fi/Ethernet

problem is the change from the bit architecture to x86. Backwards compatibility impossible. But not really a problem for me. I already have an XBox 360 so i can play those games on that.
User avatar #143 to #138 - winsauceiswin (05/22/2013) [-]
oh i see, that sucks because it will be inconvenient to switch between the two. oh wellll
#133 to #129 - laxwarriord (05/22/2013) [-]
Here's hoping, but it doesn't fill me with positivity
User avatar #135 to #133 - winsauceiswin (05/22/2013) [-]
is it backwards compatible with xboxb 360 games? or are the games even going to be different?
#141 to #135 - laxwarriord (05/22/2013) [-]
As far as i know it isn't, which is a bit of a piss take, but that might change/not be true.
Best i have heard is that its gonna have new exclusives, but again, they are probably gonna be crappy kinect games...
User avatar #145 to #141 - winsauceiswin (05/22/2013) [-]
i swear to god. i hate kinect for anything other than for exercise games

Meh, I've got a ps3. If I get anything else, it'll probably be a gaming laptop.
User avatar #272 to #260 - evilklown (05/22/2013) [-]
I was saying that. But I really love Console gaming. I don't know why, but I love it. I wasn't bought up a PC gamer, I was bought up a Console gamer - and I love it. Plus I don't have much money. Also - I really want to play the new inFamous game...
User avatar #277 to #272 - yusay (05/22/2013) [-]
I've never understood this...Why do people say they don't have enough money for a gaming PC? Almost all those who buy a console also buy a weak computer or laptop. Instead of spending the money on both of those you could buy a decent PC.
User avatar #281 to #277 - evilklown (05/22/2013) [-]
Plus, what if people just prefer Consoles? And use Laptops for Internet surfing. I'm not saying you are wrong - I agree with you, but in some situations, it's just better to buy what you like.
User avatar #279 to #277 - evilklown (05/22/2013) [-]
When I bought my PS3, it was £299. When I got my laptop (2 years before) It was about £70. £370 is enough for a good gaming PC.
#282 to #279 - yusay (05/22/2013) [-]
That's about 560 USD. A little less than the price I spent on a PC two years ago that can play Bioshock Infinite on Ultra today with no upgrades.
#283 to #282 - evilklown (05/22/2013) [-]
Really? Wow, that's pretty good. I always thought that a good Gaming PC was £600-700... I may consider. But I have no money income right now. And I'd just rather have a console.    
Not really related - but Bioshock Infinite was a very good game.

Premade ones are pretty expensive, but if you buy smart it isn't that hard. Hell, what I did was I bought a cheap PC then swapped out the parts that weren't good for gaming and popped in what I wanted. All for about 600 bucks. I bought a 1.5tb HDD later and swapped out the RAM(not an upgrade, just had a problem with it) but RAM is dirt cheap. Forgot about that.

Plus games are cheap as **** for PC.
User avatar #288 to #287 - evilklown (05/22/2013) [-]
That was what I was going to do with my current laptop. I got 4 GB of Ram for this old thing, then I just need a new Processor and a Graphics card that can fit this piece of crap. I'm probably still going to game on my consoles, but play things like TF2 and Counterstrike on here.

Games are cheap as **** ? Yeah - Free is pretty cool aswell. Which is an idea I always enjoyed about PC gaming, the idea you can pirate Offline games.
User avatar #273 to #272 - skysailor (05/22/2013) [-]
Yeah I've always had consoles. I wouldn't mind switching though. Just need the money.
User avatar #274 to #273 - evilklown (05/22/2013) [-]
I would love to TRY to switch, but I'm in the situation you're in. Oh well. I'll probably be a Console gamer for life.
