You know what ?

Fuck all the noise about BC (it's just another means to end) or whatever, we all just want access to old content or have it enhanced and that's it! 

Remasters/Remasters/Ports/Reimagining or do whatever the hell needs to be done cause I'm alright with rebuying content in another format if it menas a better experience in the end ...

And what about those of us who view "better" as meaning, the way it was originally released? When I play OOT, I want to play it on a real N64 on a CRT with an N64 controller and the surround sound system turned on just like it's the 90's. That's the way it was suppose to be played and playing it any other way, makes it a different game entirely.

For people like me, buying a "new" version=worse. There's no value in it at all. If I want new games, I'll buy new games. If I want old games, I'll buy old games.

Common that  is why we all must have hacked consoles and rooted phones because we only buy these new devices to run emulators and not pirated games lol.

Using the old tech is just too logical for everyone lol.

I agree with you. Nothing like the original experience.

Are those the original textures? Because if so, Rockstar North deserves an extra round of applause for how good their work held up with the resolution bump. If not, they can get some applause for going to the trouble of adding a 4K texture pack, lol

Rockstar San Diego made RDR actually, not North. The engine team that made the RAGE engine that Rockstar has been using since 2006 is at Rockstar San Diego as well. 

And yes, those are original textures. All XB1 X does is bump the resolution up by 6x, and give better texture filtering I believe, which is baked into XB1 X at the hardware level. 

It's 9x I'm pretty sure. 3x on each axis.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Is it a crime for wanting all these games on one box? Without having to spend more money, or having to re-plug the console in again and again (for those of us that have limited inputs)

And it's not like bc is stopping is stopping the remasters. We are getting both. A lot of games are bc and remastered/rerelease at the same time: bioshock collection, burnout paradise, assassins creed ezio collection and rogue, call of duty 4, gears of war 1, halo 3,4 (mc collection), darksiders, and more.

If it's a choice between having to purchase a defunct system or a buying a more enhanced rerelease then the above is by far the better option ... 

If it's a choice between BC and having remasters then it is arguable on many aspects and perspectives. BC also gives far less incentives to remaster content like we saw with PS2, Wii, GBA, DS and 3DS ...

I seem to remember Digital Foundry saying 6x in one of their BC videos. I know that if a game is less than 720p on 360 it will run at under 4k on XB1 X because it's a flat increase.

720p is 1280x720. Now if we multiply both axis by 3,that would be 3840x2160 (4K).

You're totally right about the second part. For example Oblivion ran at 600p, and 9x res made it 1800p

Yeah, you're right. Not sure if I misheard them on Digital Foundry or if they misspoke.

My bad. I thought it was North. Rockstar San Diego, then.

Still, this shows how much effort they really put into those textures. If they look this good when resolution has been increased that much. Absolutely impressive.

To be fair to you, Rockstar North did work on RDR in a support role. No idea exactly what that constituted, but they had their finger in the pie.

I just remember seeing their logo whenever I booted up the game, so I thought they were the main developer. My mistake

You sure are polite. :) Just in case there's any miscommunication: While you were incorrect about Rockstar North being the developer of RDR, I was just saying there was an element of truth to what you said because Rockstar North did help develop the game!

Yeah. Not cool of me to give credit to the wrong devs, though. They worked very hard on that games. Especially those textures. ;)

It doesn't really doesnt help that all Rockstar studios have the exact same logo just color coded, so you can easily get mixed up about which one is which lol
