    Microsoft: Xbox Series S and X only next-gen consoles with full RDNA 2 feature set

    in Microsoft Discussion 2 days ago

    yvanjean said: It would only matter if PS5 had all the RDNA 2 features and Xbox Series X was missing features. I think it would have been a major talking point, had Cerny not spent the majority of his presentation talking about these exact features. Seems like a bit of a misleading info that only serves a purpose for teh console warz. ...

    Microsoft: Xbox Series S and X only next-gen consoles with full RDNA 2 feature set

    in Microsoft Discussion 2 days ago

    Pretty sure this is mostly down to DirectX support. Sony has confirmed RDNA2 (both in the teardown and by Cerny) which doesn't only mean a feature set but also architectural changes etc. Majority of the gain will be down to architectural changes as described by AMD today. Well at least this is my understanding. I don't see how you get a 50-60% performance improvement simply because of...

    PS5 FINALLY in the hands of journalists + where is the POWER of the Series X?

    in Gaming Discussion 5 days ago

    We've seen ray tracing. but i think what is a legitimate question is where are the next gen games from Xbox? Would have been nice to have seen some gameplay at at least by now. Gears 5 looks great though, but not enough to compete in my opinion.Also I think the video is a lot of rubbish i guess, but some of the footage seen on Xbox Series X and has been publicized looks terrible and there really...

    Yakuza Like a Dragon Series X Digital Foundry anlaysis

    in Microsoft Discussion on 13 October 2020

    Hmm the obsession with raw resolution and frame rates for consoles is mind baffling to me. Even Nvidia has realized that trying to hit these metrics are an ever moving target with the focus on DLSS. Internal rendering resolution at 1440p, then uprez to 4k.I mean if you think of the "experience" of watching the Epic PS5 demo, which was at 1440p vs.Yakuza On Series X the difference is astounding....

    Microsoft Has Put Themselves Back In The Game!

    in Microsoft Discussion on 28 September 2020

    I'm with you and many others on the comeback by MS and the following competition between them and Sony. That being said, I don't think MS is playing in the same league. They seem to be looking at the bigger picture - the really really big one! It seems like if Gamepass continues to grow, Sony might be forced to follow. We have already seen them back away from "We believe in generations"....

    Ghost of Tsushima - Discussion & screenshots thread

    in Sony Discussion on 11 August 2020

    I was contemplating giving this a pass, since the last time I bought a full priced game I ended up not even opening it. But just WOW!!! Videos and screenshots do not do this game justice. It is, in my opinion, the best looking PS4 game to date. Or atleast fighting head to head with HZD (I went back and looked at some of the screenshots i got from HZD and they still look crazy good!). Maybe...

    The different approaches to Next Generation gaming

    in Gaming Discussion on 06 August 2020

    Not impressed by the visuals, and more importantly not impressed by the unchanged current generation gaming paradigms. Perhaps the most interesting potential we've seen is in the EPIC demo (which we will probably never see anything like it in gameplay in the next 2 to 3 years if at all) and the Ratchet and Clank demo. Despite those two demos being at least somewhat different, the...

    Official Xbox July Showcase 2020 thread

    in Microsoft Discussion on 23 July 2020

    Not sure how MS came to a conclusion that going with that artstyle for a next gen Halo would be a good idea. I'm just really confused by what I was seeing - I literally bought my 360 directly because of the Halo 4 E3 demo. Not only was the visuals lacklustre, but the gameplay seems completely unchanged minus the Pathfinder hook :D Not to mention, that if you were following all the teasers etc....
