The big news here is X1 failure to output 1080p games, something will effect some clueless gamers.

I think that this a huge part of the situation but I also think that there has to be some even larger underlying issue

Probably that thing that was mentioned sometime before about Xbox One not even having a proper OS when you boot it up, and requires you to download it.

Setting aside that you sort of have been commenting on them... Are you free to comment on first party games and their resolutions?

Is the XB1's design, in particular the ESRAM size, a limitation to achieving 1080p for games that use deferred rendering/lighting as has been suggested? Is that why most of your internally published titles thus far are rendering at lower resolutions?

Is anyone taking that stuff seriously or did that all die? Consoles are fine, and the advertising thing is completely made up.

So anyway, one of them has nothing to do with us. Whew.

As for the resolution stuff I hadn't realized there was a new set of rumors popping up today. On that topic, and as I've said in my previous posts, I don't comment on 3rd party games stuff. Not my area.

So nothing new from me, I'm not going to get into the fray on the resolution stuff. G'night!

For once I was just glad the other thing wasn't about us.

WTF ALBERT?

You are the one who asked and tweeted world wide about resolutions of games between xb1/ps4?

Now when we do have on cod and bf. now all of a sudden you "not going to get fray on the resolution stuff"... What a joke.

You also comment how your team will never give sony that 30% hardware advantage and how can anyone believe you will let that happen. I guess you were right 720p to 1080/900p is actually even bigger than 50%.

you were 100% right about one thing. Games are telling the true story.

My advice to you, ignore that place.

Even at their very best, they seem very downer and tense. They lap up every single positive news, attempt to throw potshots at competitor while they're at it ( even when it has nothing to do with Sony ), and are quick to dismiss and jump over anyone who is even have a negative view on stuff.

At their worst... well, you've seen it. And non-stop attacks against CBOAT and stuff.

Same here. I cannot play a pc game below 1080P without getting a headache after 15 minutes. I'm just so used to 1080P already and that's why im afraid of getting a next gen console

Thing is, though, we never got confirmation that you can set recordings to go longer than 15 minutes. I would hope you could. I assumed it would work like a typical DVR, where a temporary recording would start when you switch to a channel (this allows you to pause and rewind live TV). That temporary recording would disappear after 15-30 minutes. However, if you pressed record, the recording would store to the hard drive and could go as long as you wanted (or until the HD filled). I hope this is the case for PS4, where the 15 minutes are meant for quick uploads when something incredible happens, but you can set a constant recording if you so wish.

Probably something to due with one or all of Microsoft's 3 OS's having major issues on the boner. That may have been the system Sessler was complaining about having all the error messages. There will be bugs on 11/22 and there will be blood!

As I said in a previous post, thumbs up to you. Your tweets at least made it easy to guess what this was about. I understand why this is a negative, but I'm just glad this isn't a situation where people can't get ad revenue for content posted with PS4 footage or something more serious and damaging like that.

I could be completely wrong but don't places like IGN already have working PS4's? If they had something to hide don't you think they would make sure no one had one at all?

Edit: Nevermind after thinking about it if they do have them they are probably dev kits

The twitter stuff was described as 'inside baseball' so I didn't think much of it. Dunno what the 'truth to power' stuff relates to though.

So we know about less than PS4 resolution games, COD and Battlefield, and we have rumors of OS problems that will manifest at launch - is that about the sum of the current state of ResolutionGate and RisksEverywhereGate?

I might have missed something. I was getting my Diablo on.

Thanks for clearing that up. It does make me wonder why Sony is taking this approach. Any guesses as to why that might be? Are they having problems with the console or is it that they want to somewhat control how people are reviewing the PS4?

You know, as a fan, I've been agitated by how little has been shown of both consoles before release. I was expecting more video coverage. At least this explains that.

I think they are desperately seeking justification for their purchases, I don't know. They are so personally invested into the brand and its existence. It was funny seeing them one by one trying rip apart every journo or source that confirmed the 720p COD and BF.

It also means Sony/Xbox marketing and product positioning strategies are working. To be able to create a fanbase like that is probably what both companies really want.

Seriously, if there were problems with the console their would be more rumors aboout it. Its just Sony controlling reviewers and said reviewers QQing about it (legitimately or not).
