XboxConsoleBox

So I have mentioned a few times how Sony has upped their game since the last generation when it comes to advertising and videos. Well, Microsoft did pretty well in the last generation but they have just blown me out the water with this Xbox One TV Spot.

The only misstep for me is the tiny bit of Skype which I honestly believe is something very few people care about, kind of like no one cares about Riley in Call of Duty: Ghosts.

I can’t begin to explain how excited I am for Titan Fall if there ever has been a multi-platform system seller then this is surely it.

      No no, the decision is quite simple: buy the PS4 now and then save up to buy the Xbone when it comes to SA is a year (or two).

        See I’m waiting for some great bundles and specials, as well as more games anyway. By the time I’m ready to buy, both will be here. So I’ll have to make a decision as to which I want.

      All you have to do it wait until March next year. Both systems will then have more games to choose from and should have seen a small price drop by then.

        Neither of those consoles will have a price drop within the first six months. No way. There is no point in waiting to buy it unless you are willing to wait 10-12 months for a price drop.

        I know, right! I hate having a bunch of convenient, extra features. That’s why I refuse to buy a smartphone because I only want a phone that can call people, and I refuse to buy a computer because I only need it to type up documents. Flip phones and typewriters are the best.

          All those “convenient” features come at a cost. You know that the XB1 has 10% GPU and memory reserved for snap mode TV viewing etc? Besides, I already have this TV watching feature in my setup.. it’s called a remote control, does the same thing.

            The pros outweight the cons. The hot swapping feature of the Xbox dashboard is effin’ brilliant. A TV remote doesn’t do the same thing. Unless I can speak to my TV remote and have it instantly swap between television channels, Blu-Ray movies, Xbox apps like Netflix & Internet Explorer, my cable box, and the gaming console. You have a remote like that? Xbox One integrates all that mess into one, clean, quick and easy to use interface. It Check it out: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2426409,00.asp

I game on my pc as well as console. Pc i play Civ5, FPS’s and some RTS’s, but on console… GTA5, Forza 4, Dance Central 2(yeah i do play it lol) and a couple more games on kinect as just for pure social fun. So console has its perks as do PC’s.

            I’m placing my trust in the Sony 1st party studios again. Main reason for siding with the PS4. Also, I believe Dead Rising and lots of other exclusives from MS will come to the PC later on, and seeing as you are a PC gamer, maybe the PS will be a better investment as Sony’s exclusives (1st party) will remain exclusive.

            October 25, 2013 at 15:44

            I see it this way, you’re buying into a new console on the promise of more exclusives rather than whatever is at launch. History has shown that Sony never spills its load during the launch window, but rather spreads out the games over the course of a year.

            And if anything has been true over the last 3 generations, it’s that Sony delivers on content. That’s why I find it so strange that people get obsessed with launch titles. If you buy a console purely on launch content rather than on what the console will provide in the next 5 – 7 years, then you’re definitely doing it wrong.

            Easiest solution? Get both down the line. Worked fine for me during the Xbox360/PS3 years. Also, I have a feeling that the XBONE S with its hardware update is an inevitability (post-year one).

            I also bought both, but kinda regret getting the Xbox πŸ™ Bought it for Alan Wake, which then came to PC. Halo Smhalo, Gears of Meh and Forza doesn’t support my G25.

            Yeah, I know what you mean. I’m still undecided on whether I’ll get a bone, but you never know I might get one 5 years down the line and live off a yummy diet of budget BT games.

      Very hasty there mate. Devs have already said that they’re about as powerful as each other, and as easy to develop for. They’re using their hardware differently, but the output is about the same. So there’s that.

      All the good games always come later in the generation, so if it releases a year later locally – at least our local launch line-up will be WAY better than the current PS4 launch lineup.

      Timed exclusives are what they are. Get a PC if you want to play Titanfall.

      R1200 more sure, but you get all that extra functionality that a PS4 doesn’t have. Navigating your menu’s Minority Report style is win. Telling your xbox to load a movie or game before you even sit down and pick up your controller? Win. Have a friend over, just hand him a controller, the xbox will sign him in on its own. Awesome.

      Windows is being optimised and changed for the xbox – its not the same as your desktop version. Without you testing it, how can you even begin to decide its crap? Its fantastic for touch-screen devices already. So?

      Kinect doesn’t spy on you. You can turn it off if you want. That’s a real option, its there, so you don’t like it? Don’t use it. But its awesome. So I would.

      Microsoft doesn’t lie per se, they just take a while to actually listen to what the gamers want. Gamers aren’t their only target market however. They want us to get the full experience of their dream device. I would too if it were me.

      Microsoft have more money than you can even imagine. They spent a lot more on development of that kinect that you could even dream of. Marketing is child’s play in comparison budget-wise.

      SteamBox is just a pc in a smaller case with a new OS. We already have everything besides the OS. What’s the big deal?

      Xbox 360 isn’t crap, that I can assure you – and judging by next-gen, neither in the Xbone. Its not a question of good or bad, its a question of taste and exclusives. Its about what you’re looking to get out of the console. Sony is all games, but MS is all entertainment. They’re both viable paths to take, and both can play games.

        There are ipads, and smart phones and laptops for that.

        I think u under estimate what a controller and a steam box can give you.

        The reason why minority report interface will never EVER work is becos have u have to keep your arms in the air and use over exaggerated gestures. It died on the the windows surface and windows 8.

            Because xbox 360 games will look shit, even if they were at 1080p, compared to any 720p xbone game. Any.

            Well there’s another point. It IS still a rumour. Even so, if it were true, it’d still look better than any xbox 360 or Wii U or PS3 game out there. My point remains valid.

            Also, drink.

          • trueLies

            October 25, 2013 at 16:19

            logic: ToshZa farted: “Well there’s another point. It IS still a rumour. Even so, if it were
            true, it’d still look better than any xbox 360 or Wii U or PS3 game out
            there.”

            And they’ll all look shit compared to any 720p game on an Xbone. Just see. Fidelity and details > a few pixels.

            Also, Antialiasing is a real technology. It exists. It works. And its viable on next-gen.

          October 25, 2013 at 15:55

          You’d be fighting for time with your one TV anyway, no matter which console you buy. If you had a second TV, you wouldn’t have a problem with sharing anyway.

          iPads, Phones, Laptops & Desktops have touch screen. But you missed the point, it’s being modified specifically for the Xbone. That, my dear friend, is the point.

          Not at all, but that controller will work just as well on my PC. Why do I need a SteamBox for it? The Xbox 360 controller already works on PC’s. So? Again, why the box?

          Um, you have to keep your arms in the air for a split second while you gesture. I think you’d need the exercise anyway, but really? That’s your complaint? Keeping your arms up for a few seconds? You can also just say what you want too, you know? That’s another cool feature, I did mention above. Can you tell your PS4 to load the game or movie you can’t find buried in the menu somewhere?

          And thanks Spathi for saving me that point. It still looks fantastic on the next-gen consoles. Who cares if there’s some pixel difference when the graphics LOOK and FEEL the SAME.

      I hate these type of comments.

      “Windows 8.1 is utter crap and will be running on the xbox one”
      Windows 8.1 is crap for reasons irrelevant to the XBone.

      “only has DDR3 ram unlike PS4 which has DDR5”
      PS4 has GDDR5, big difference.

      “Microsoft spend all its money on marketing and non on product quality”

      How would you know? It’s not even out yet and it’s launch lineup is arguably the best.

      I’m not a console gamer (not anymore) but seeing comments like these just grinds my gears.

    Design of machine intelligence must read

    [1 paradox]Why 0.999… is not equal to 1?

    Written in 2012

    The current mathematic theory tells us, 1>0.9, 1>0.99, 1>0.999, …, but at last it says 1=0.999…, a negation of itself (Proof 0.999… =1: 1/9=0.111…, 1/9×9=1, 0.111…x9=0.999…, so 1=0.999…). So it is totally a paradox, name it as ?1 paradox?. You see this is a mathematic problem at first, actually it is a philosophic problem. Then we can resolve it. Because math is a incomplete theory, only philosophy could be a complete one. The answer is that 0.999… is not equal to 1. Because of these reasons:

    1. The infinite world and finite world.

    We live in one world but made up of two parts: the infinite part and the finite part. But we develop our mathematic system based on the finite part, because we never entered into the infinite part. Your attention, God is in it.

    0.999… is a number in the infinite world, but 1 is a number in the finite world. For example, 1 represents an apple. But then 0.999…? We don’t know. That is to say, we can’t use a number in the infinite world to plus a number in the finite world. For example, an apple plus an apple, we say it is 1+1=2, we get two apples, but if it is an apple plus a banana, we only can say we get two fruits. The key problem is we don’t know what is 0.999…, we can get nothing. So we can’t say 9+0.999…=9.999… or 10, etc.

    We can use “infinite world” and “finite world” to resolve some of zeno’s paradox, too.

    2. lim0.999…=1, not 0.999…=1.

    3.The indeterminate principle.

    Because of the indeterminate principle, 1/9 is not equal to 0.111….

    For example, cut an apple into nine equal parts, then every part of it is 1/9. But if you use different measure tools to measure the volume of every part, it is indeterminate. That is to say, you may find the volume could not exactly be 0.111…, but it would be 0.123, 0.1142, or 0.11425, etc.

    Now we end a biggest mathematical crisis. But most important is this standpoint tells us, our world is only a sample from a sample space. When you realized this, and that the current probability theory is wrong, when you find the Meta-sample-space, you would be able to create a real AI-system. It will indicate that there must be one God-system in the system, which is the controller. Look our world, there must be one God, as for us, only some robots. Maybe we are in a God’s game, WHO KNOWS?
