Re: The XBox One Thread Pt3 - discuss!

Forget the dubious power of the cloud. It's all about the power of the hug in the cloud.

Now if only the stupid "Xbox turn off. Yes. Yes. Yessss. YES!" bug wouldn't keep reappearing even after a cold boot, I'd be a happy man. I feel like a 2012 peon having to press buttons to switch things off.

Ok, I know we are not talking about resolutions and framerates anymore but here is a good video. Bare in mind I am an xbox fan, the PS4 looks next gen in this, the XONE looks the same as 360.

....But I am sure I will enjoy this just as much on whatever console I played it on.

I still want to cancel this as 2-3 hours of gameplay for £25 is just ridiculous

Especially when 90% of that will be cut scenes.

It's a demo... a prequel of sorts, not MGS5

I've never played a MGS game, but from what I think I know, it's traditionally a Playstation game, so I'm guessing the majority of fans will be Playstation owners. Therefore, I can't see the devs putting too much effort into the Xbox One side of things, especially when they're probably still learning the ropes on their primary system.

That makes more sense because I thought this had been put back till next year. Still £25 is too much, I'm sure you guys have got double that out of the Titanfail beta

Yeah. That's a game I had written off as not really a Thief game all of last year. But the latest 17 minutes gameplay video has given me pause. It looks like it might still deliver some of the sneaking experience I'm after.

I guess it's a good thing it's coming out here a few days after the US (as usual). Gives us a bit of time to read reviews and user impressions before pulling the trigger.

The MGS game is not on my list right now. Not at that price. Maybe once it's heavily discounted.

You're quite right, although a lot of the Metal Gear games have come out on the Xbox and Nintendo consoles as well, even the definitive versions of some of the titles depending on your view!

As far as effort is concerned, I guess it's easier to accept that the devs didn't try than that the hardware just isn't as capable and those are simply the concessions they had to make to get the game running how they wanted it? Would anyone here have preferred 1080p/30fps over 720p/60fps versus the PS4 at 1080p/60fps? Personally I think the MGS (not MGR) mainline games are perfectly fine at 30fps, they're not exactly twitchy and I would probably have the bump in visuals 1080p would bring over the extra fluidity of 60fps for this kind of game.

60fps is preferable to me.

But then PS4 does both, so if I do buy it (will wait for reviews) i'll get the PS4 version.

IF they had bothered to release it on PC, I would have bought that version.

Microsoft announces Xbox One Media Remote
Quote:
Microsoft has announced the Xbox One Media Remote that leaked earlier this month.

The remote lets you control video playback for Blu-ray movies and streaming video on Xbox One. The motion-activated backlit buttons illuminate as soon as you pick it up "allowing it to be used in the darkest of rooms while playing games, watching TV shows, movies and more", Microsoft said. It's out in early March.

It also includes dedicated Back and OneGuide buttons. The OneGuide button lets you access TV shows and movies through the Xbox program guide.

You can also use the media remote to control your TV/receiver power and volume through Kinect.

In the US the Xbox One Media Remote costs $24.99.
