    You're in charge of Xbox division. What would be your battle plan for Xbox Series X?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 30 December 2019

    curl-6 said: What would be your strategy for Xbox Series X in the upcoming console war if you were in charge? 1) Stop the confusing nonsensical naming scheme, and create a clear and easy one. The next Xbox should be called something like Xbox Gen 4, which people will simply call XB4. Cheaper versions could be called with a "core" subtext while more advanced versions may go with...

    What's With The PS4 Sales Doubt?

    in Sony Discussion on 03 February 2019

    I principally agree with the Original Post but the answer depends on which year we take as the end of the console cycle. Most people forget that the current sales of the older consoles are usually not the total sales when the newer generation arrived, but they rather continued to sell for a few more years, which is especially true for Nintendo handhelds and Sony consoles. PS2, for instance, sold...

    Star Wars Battlefront 2: Xbox One X vs PS4 Pro (Digital Foundry).

    in Gaming Discussion on 20 November 2017

    XBX has clearly a superior hardware in pretty much every way. However, that does not make it automatically better because most of the differences boil down to the RESOLUTION. There are two major issues with that... 1) The vast majority of people do not have 4K TVs, and the difference between 1080 super-sampled images are only subtle, regardless how blown out in comparisons. 2) Diminishing...

    Did anyone pre-order the Xbox One X?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 21 August 2017

    Radek said: I have PC that is more powerful than PS4 Pro, but less powerful than Xbox One X, only GPU is slower though (GTX 970) But I play my games in 1080p 60 high or 1440p 30 maxed. Xbox has no exclusives over PC, so obviously no. It's good value for those who like Xbox exclusives and most of the multiplats, but at the same time €500 sounds pricey for a...

    Should I get the RX Vega 64 or GTX 1080?

    in Gaming Discussion on 15 August 2017

    Turkish said: I can get both for the same price (gtx 1080 will actually be cheaper). Early reports say gaming performance is about the same, but jumping from geforce 600 series will be a yuge jump either way. I'll be putting the gpu in a small itx case, I was seriously considering Vega the last few weeks, but then saw the power draw, 295w vs 1080's 180w. That is awful, I only have a 500w...

    Will Xbox One pass 50 million?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 08 July 2017

    curl-6 said: The system currently stands at 29 million according to VGChartz numbers, after 3 and a half years on the market. Do you think it will end up selling more than 50 million lifetime, and why/why not? That depends on the number of years it will stay on the market. But there are a few very likely facts.1) It will sell less than X360, PS3, or half of PS4, but more than...

    Prediction: PS4 - 130 million Hardware, 1.6 billion Software lifetime

    in Sony Discussion on 04 July 2017

    I am quoting myself (quoting Turkish) from year 15 February 2014. Everything I said has come precisely true yet people still have severe underestimations in their minds. A console, which will have sold way over 70 million by the end of 2017 will most definitely have sold way over 100 million. PS4 will sell like hot potatoes at Holiday seasons for $199 or less.Original...

    Prediction: PS4 - 130 million Hardware, 1.6 billion Software lifetime

    in Sony Discussion on 04 July 2017

    LethalP said: The PS4 is basically beasting. It's the fundamental game console of choice this gen. 60.4 million hardware and 487 million software in it's first 3 and a half years. For it to sell half a billion software in that time is actually insane. But get this, the first two years of a consoles life is normally the smallest in software sales due to the low install base. So it's not...

    DF Justifying the X1X Price Point

    in Microsoft Discussion on 23 June 2017

    DonFerrari said: Plerpy_ said: I don't doubt it's worth it specs wise, but at $649 AUD it's just too expensive. And without a killer app I can't help but ask what the point of it is (so essentially what my questions about the Pro were). At least with the Pro at the moment you can get the console, three games and remote control for $539. And on PS4Pro you at least had...

    DF Justifying the X1X Price Point

    in Microsoft Discussion on 18 June 2017

    No, I am not kidding at all. Go to the sites like Ars Technica, find them saying like "The PS4 is slightly more powerful than Xbox One".The tech sites underplayed the difference to the extreme! It's the Sony fans who constantly emphasized it and reminded the techies (who tend to be Xbox supporters). In theory, there is a noticeable gap (especially due to the RAM bandwidth, not only the GPU grunt)...

    DF Justifying the X1X Price Point

    in Microsoft Discussion on 18 June 2017

    For some reason, the tech sites are EXTREMELY biased towards Microsoft. The value of a console is not just about its physical prowess, and it has never been. Just a few years ago, those tech sites CONSTANTLY downplayed the graphical superiority of PS4 vs XB1 although it was exactly 45% more powerful then just like XBX vs PS4P. But despite the lack of 4K TVs in most houses and the tremendous...

    Xbox One X (Scorpio) Prospects

    in Gaming Discussion on 15 June 2017

Neither does true 4K, and the difference is simply non-native 1800p vs 2160,...

    Xbox One X (Scorpio) Prospects

    in Gaming Discussion on 12 June 2017

    It's been a long time I was here, and with the final announcement of X Box One X (hence forth XBOX), I'd like to share my personal analysis and compare its prospects to Playstation 4 Pro (Henceforth PS4P). Please note that ALL of my analyses so far have come true. I'd predicted that PS4 will sell at least twice as many as XB1, outselling it everywhere, even in the US. For more info, please see...
