    Xbox One X

    That 2011 CPU in the PC is more powerful than the toaster-class Jaguar CPU in even the One X and PS4 Pro. It's not scaling on PC - even the minimum spec CPU is eating the console baseline for breakfast. If you want big leaps in game logic on new machines there will have to be a cut-off and that will have to come much sooner for consoles than PC because the CPU's in the current consoles are shite.

    Xbox "Scarlett" - next gen consoles

    From what I read that's just a way for the console to download the parts of the game it requires for you to start playing as soon as possible. A bit like the way PS4 downloads work except the MS version apparently uses machine learning to predict which parts are required based on previous downloads by other players, rather than requiring the developer to do some work.

    Generally the extra power does go into stability and some better visual effects, but framerates seem largely to be constrained by the modest bump in CPU that the PS4 Pro and One X received due to what was available from AMD when they were designed. I'd like to think that next gen the better Zen-based CPU's will be used to push framerates up, but I suspect we'll instead get native 4K most of the time plus snazzy effects at 30fps

    8K's coming so, y'know, we can start all this hoopla again.
  5. I tried to play it yesterday after months (years) of playing Titanfall 2. I turned it off after one match. It feels like a shonky prototype knockoff of Titanfall's pilot gameplay.
  6. I'd quite happily settle for "CD Projekt Red's"

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    It looks great, although the stage demo was slightly marred by the guy MS had paid to sit in the front row and shout assent every time a feature was announced.
  8. It looks incredible, so I was disappointed to see generic white guy book-ending the trailer. I'm glad to hear there's a character generator

    E3 2018: Xbox E3 Briefing

    I'm sure that in 2018 plutonium is available in every corner drugstore, but in 2014 it's a little hard to come by.

    E3 2018: Xbox E3 Briefing

    Vince Zampella said they are working on TF3. Some of their developers have moved to IW, but I don't believe there's been any kind of exodus (assuming you're referring to the Linked In profile trawl that someone did a few weeks back) - I think it's more that a few staff have taken more senior roles at a nearby developer (IW), presumably because that more senior role remains occupied at Respawn. TF2 sales were what they were due to EA's decision to release it in silly season between Call of Duty and Battlefield.

    E3 2018: EA Play - Everything was GARBAGE

    All EA need to do to "win" E3 is to announce Titanfall 3

    You sure you're not thinking of John Linneman from DF?

    Crackdown 3

    One of the amusing things I've seen was Jez Corden from Windows Central (the wannabe unofficial PR machine for Microsoft) tweeting rumours of the delay a week ago, then, after the Jason Schreier Kotaku article went up and some overwrought Xbox fan tweeted Corden that Kotaku were "click-baiting" the Crackdown delay, Corden tweeted back that Kotaku were doing that because Schreier "loves kicking Microsoft". So if Corden posts the delay rumour it's okay, but if Kotaku posts the delay rumour days later based on their own sources it's "kicking Microsoft". #nobias
