Can't believe it's taken me a whole day for this to click in my head, but there was no Forza in the Microsoft presentation (and no, I'm not counting the DLC).

I'm mean, the Motorsport series had grown stale for me so I was probably going to skip 8 if it had come this year, but if they've pushed it back to next year to launch in Project Scarlett then that reaffirms my belief that the motorsport series is more or less tech demo series for Microsoft to showcase thier hardware.

They focused on dlc for FM8. They just started FM9 development earlier this year.

Was actually DLC for FM7. FM8 development started earlier this year.

That does make more sense. So I guess FM8 will likely be a launch title for Project Scarlett.

Possibly, though they may take 3 years to make it and release it Fall 2021. But probably 2 years of development Holiday 2020. 



On an unrelated note. Having recently studied mathematical statistics, I'm having a tiny orgasm at that near-perfect normal distribution in the poll.



I LOVE ICELAND!

Flight Simulator was all I needed. Honestly. Absolutely cannot wait for that game but it'll probably release on XB1 and Scarlett as a launch title so I'll probably wait to get it until then.

Consoles generally can outperform low-end (and even some) midrange PCs. High-end and Enthusiast grade, on the other hand, will remain out of their reach.

it depends on what the ballpark is for enthusiast grade PC. the more expensive the pc doesnt give better visuals as such its like diminished returns

eg 4k tv playing watchdogs 2 if you have a vega 64 etc and another pc x2 2080ti sli the extra 6-700£ wont give it jumps from high to ultra ultra ultra if you know what i mean.

what im excited about is the new consoles will finally be able to push those visuals 60fps if they can release a £449 box that does 4k 60fps with extremly good settings what would be the point in buying a £500 gpu what more can it get you?

PC is one of the largest gaming segments.
The thing that the PC allows though that a console doesn't is that you get to choose your settings.

For example... With the Xbox One X most games employ a dynamic resolution in order to keep framerates up with the highest possible resolution with reduced visual settings. (Textures, Shadowing, Lighting, Tessellation and so on!)
On the PC you can take a Radeon RX 580 which is the Xbox One X equivalent, dial up the visuals and just sit at 1440P for an overall better presentation than what the Xbox One X variant is putting out.

Same will occur next gen as well.

I am excited for next-gen, but my current PC is still more capable than the next-gen consoles and it will be several years old by the time next-gen hardware launches... I will still buy Scarlett of course, because there are some games I just prefer to play on console regardless of the superiority of my PC for one reason or another.

Yes but sales can tell you not many really cares if it plays better on X or PC.  Majority of multiplat games usually sell more on Playstation (for now on this gen, not sure how next gen will play out).

As a gamer, sales dont improve my experience unless its a multiplayer game. Sometimes to play at a premium level you are not going to be a common denominator.

I mean that the e3 showing for Gears 5 was junk, not the entire MS conference, which I thought was fine. Not amazing but decent enough. But I can understand why you may have thought I meant the conference as a whole.

If the game lineup looks as good as always then that is fine, but that is still as it has been and not greater than usual, right?

Halo trailer was fine but it didnt wow me as much as i had expected. Its the 2nd showing for the game, and 1st for Scarlett. I cant ascertain much to compare it to previous 313 efforts.

The Scarlett info was mishandled i feel. Just bullet pointing what Sony had already said just makes it look like follow the leader. Their video to go wit hit wasn't exciting either. I'm sure Scarlett will be a good console though.

Anyways, my point is that i need to see MS showing off a greater output of games (and quality, but that is subjective) beyond what they normally do, til I agree that scarlett is going to easily outsell x1 because of 1st party.

Thats my misunderstanding. I can somewhat agree that Gears wasnt what i throught, i wanted to see some campaign gameplay but all they showed was multiplayer modes and i throught the T2 skin was a awesome.

Np!

The T2 skin was pretty rad even though a strange ending to the gears section

Great show from MS, tons of interesting games, but too many CG only trailers. Scarlett with 4 times X1X power? Surely they don't mean 24TF with that, right? No way they could offer a mad build like that sub $1k.

It's 100% CPU.

Also, it seems to have twelve memory modules surrounding a ~300 mm2 chip (assuming it's three on each side), so I'm thinking 24 GB GDDR6 RAM and performance more or less in line with the Vega 64 / RTX 2060 GPUs.

This is not my area but looking at the video several times I think there's only 8 ggdr6 chips, 3 to the west, 3 to the south, 0 at north and 2 to the east. The north side is very blurry but I don't think there's any modules there and south-east corner they don't show so I might be off. And if you zoom in at the code names you can see 14 Gbps speed on those modules from Samsung mixed with both 1GB and 2GB Vram.

So I think we are looking at 256-bit bus with 448 GB/s memory bandwidth and between 12-14GB Gddr6 Vram (Video ram).
