MS seriously needs to step it up next gen. After the amazing 360, the XB1 has been a serious brand damaging console for me. Every year felt like Nintendos 2016 offerings at best. If youre a hardcore fan of MS franchises and don't own a PS4, I could see it being worth while.

That was super disappointing. 6/10 at BEST.



I don't know. Even though that Halo footage was PC, look at some of the finer details (especially the inside of that ship). It was crisp and detailed. All while running @60fps to boot (what you should get from Scarlett).

Yep. No dumb early focus on multimedia and Kinect like XB1. Just a pure game console. Assuming the price is right, Scarlett is basically guaranteed to sell more than Xbox One, especially since they're going to have a stronger 1st party next-gen than they had this gen. 

Maybe,  maybe not.  

I don't see any evidence of MS software being stronger.  Looks pretty much the same to me.

The scarlett section was handled pretty badly.  Playing catch up to Sony on stuff we already know (loading, 8k, 120hz, custom ssd) and showing off Halo without any wow factor. 

Of course the 1st party support will be better, they have nearly doubled the size of their 1st party compared to this gen, including 2 new AAA studios (The Initiative and Playground's 2nd, RPG studio) with the potential for Obsidian to be staffed up to AAA size as well, if The Outer Worlds is a success. Ninja Theory's new tech was designed to make AAA quality games on a AA sized team and budget, so you might be able to classify their games as AAA as well, especially since they've been staffing up each of their multiple teams.

They should but until we actually see the fruits of all these teams its just potential. For now,  MS 1st party just looks like MS 1st party,  for better or worse.

Some seriously good looking shader/texture work going on...

So basically doubling up the amount of studios, which automatically means doubling up the output of games is the exact same to you..

Okay then..



lol when he plugged in Master Chief all I could think of was Christmas Vacation.
