  1. The lack of competition for Nvidia at the higher end of the market has let them charge silly money for GPUs. SSD prices seem to be dropping by the week, RAM prices seem to be falling again and you get way more bang for your buck CPU wise since AMD brought Ryzen to market.
  2. The case for switching to the PC was arguably stronger around the end of the last generation. People were going to lose access to the games they'd bought digitally on 360/PS3 if they switched to the next set of consoles and the pricing of full games on Xbox Live and PSN up to that point was abysmal. If I buy a Series X/PS5 this winter I'm still going to be able to play every game I had for the current generation, possibly better than before thanks to the new console having an SSD so they'll load quicker and the OS should be better. On top of that we've seen Microsoft and Sony regularly have quite good sales on their respective stores and Gamepass is a fantastic bargain.
  3. I'd be more inclined to view this as a new way to try and sell consoles to PC gamers. "Here's Horizon:Zero Dawn, hope you enjoy it loads. If you want to play more you can buy the sequel in three months on PS5 or you can wait three years for a PC port". Dreams would be slightly different as getting PC users on board to create content would benefit console users. I'm guessing you'd need to have a PSN account to upload stuff for that game though.
  4. Link to Kotaku story. I know this is being discussed in the Horizon thread but it seems like a big enough story to justify its own thread. Afterall we now seem closer than ever to getting those PC ports of the Ape Escape games that the PC community has been demanding for years. No talk yet of Sony planning to launch their own storefront for PC games but I guess that's possible. Steam and the Epic Store seem to be the likely destination for the Horizon port anyway. I miss Ape Escape.

    Google Stadia

    Apparently the only way to get a Stadia username without a bunch of numbers at the end is to have pre-ordered the founders edition. Which seems silly.
  6. I got as far as the words Ben Kuchera. Wasn't going to waste any more of my time.
  7. The Wii-Us shite marketing is what caused most of the confusion. The name played a part but even the initial reveal at E3 of the Wii-U left some people confused about whether it was a full on new console or some fancy accessory.
  8. I think the new GOTY format as well the "Austin" rule where a game regularly makes the top ten based on staff member saying how much they loved game X has really made them less enjoyable.
  9. Is this the teraflops thing again? The Nvidia 1080 is supposed to be an 8.9 teraflop card while the 2070 is 7.5 teraflop card. The 2070 outperforms the 1080 in benchmarks because it's got a better more modern architecture. I'd be legitimately flabbergasted if the Series S didn't outperform a One X in just about every way. EDIT: Assuming Series S is a thing.
  10. I don't get this focus on fundamental changes as if people genuinely expect the wheel to be reinvented when the PS5 comes out. I don't see any of the people saying that setting the base level a bit higher is going to revolutionise game design. Like Harry has pointed out it could just be something like flying in a title like Horizon that gets cut because the PS4s CPU wasn't up to the job. A PS5 exclusive Horizon might get flying, a cross gen game might not. Not sure either about this idea that devs couldn't start planning features that take some advantage of the next gen until specs were nailed down. Any ass could look at the PC market and figure out that the next set of consoles would have Ryzen processors that are a lot better than Jaguar processors and that the consoles would have SSDs. These aren't technologies that have just emerged in the last six months.
  11. Why would they? Microsoft first announced the next Xbox was in development in 2018. It'll be almost two and a half years between E3 2018 and the likely release of these consoles.
  12. The messaging needs cleaning up and concrete examples given. People need to be able to look at something like a Forza 8 (I'm going out on a limb and saying Forza 8 will come out this year) and see what benefits you get from playing it on a Series S/X over playing it on an Xboxone. Does Halo Infinite allow local co-op on a One or is that a Series console exclusive feature? How sweaty does Kasumi get on a Series X versus a One X? Important stuff like that basically.
  13. The 360 version of Titanfall was made/ported by a different developer right?
  14. They are looking at boosting their presence in Asia. Phil Spencer has spoken about it a few times in the past. The Konami thing is just something I made up, I thought the phrasing would have been enough to show I wasn't entirely serious.
