  4. Against all odds, this year has turned out to be an exciting one for the industry when it comes to hardware launches- though the last major round of console and handheld launches was less than three years ago, it seems we are already primed for major new hardware this year. This includes the three new VR headsets that launched this year, of course – the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR are all major new game platforms for the industry that launched, or will launch, in 2016 – but it seems we are also getting new consoles this year. One of them, at the very least, was expected- Nintendo’s NX, which is primed to be the successor to the disappointing Wii U, has long been marked as a 2016 launch. However, what was unexpected was the rumblings of new hardware launches from Sony and Microsoft, too- both of whom look to be launching new PlayStation and Xbox systems. Effectively, then, the launch of new consoles by all three companies leads to a mid generation reset– an all new generation, so to speak. What Microsoft is planning is as yet unknown- they were among the first companies to raise the idea of iterative consoles, but they went back on that notion shortly afterwards. Nevertheless, enough indications exist that we know they are working on something new, and Xbox head Phil Spencer himself has hinted at an announcement of something beyond the Xbox One coming soon. What that something is, however, is as yet unknown. "Xbox head Phil Spencer himself has hinted at an announcement of something beyond the Xbox One coming soon." On the other hand, the PS4K and the Nintendo NX, while both equally enigmatic and unannounced, are far clearer to us- the PS4K appears to be a highly incremental revision of the PS4, enhancing the base console’s specs somewhat to lead to better performing and looking games. The Nintendo NX is Nintendo’s brand new console, and is, according to the consensus found in most rumors and leaks, pegged to be at least a bit more powerful than the current PS4 (where it would stand with respect to the PS4K is unknown for now). So we have two new consoles coming this year that could conceivably lay claim to being the most powerful console ever released. The question is, will that be enough to sell them to the masses? Remember, the current console generation is only now hitting its stride after almost three years of wallowing in the shadow of the previous generation. Most customers have, within the last year or so, spent a few hundred dollars on new hardware- why would they buy either the NX or the PS4K? Both the NX and the PS4K will have to make a compelling case for their existence- however, equally important to their ultimate appeal to the mass market will be their value proposition. In other words, how much the machines cost could single handedly make or break their fortunes on the market. Sony must surely realize that- the reason the PS4 has done as well as it has is because of its consumer friendly pricing. When Sony announced the price of the system, it was just $399- a full $100 cheaper than the Xbox One, and it delivered on this cheaper price while being a more powerful and capable console as well. This good pricing for the PS4 is just the most notable incidence of good pricing moves by Sony in the last few years, which have all lent them a measure of success- the PS Vita was similarly well priced at $249, and the PlayStation VR is priced at an extremely low and attractive $399. Sony, it seems, understands the value of pricing their hardware just right. "Sony, it seems, understands the value of pricing their hardware just right." How much, then, should the PS4K be priced at? This is an interesting question that needs to be approached with the full context of the picture in mind: the PS4K, while a new and more powerful machine, is not meant to replace the current PS4 model. Rather, all indications are that the two models will exist side by side on the market- much like how Nintendo sells multiple variants of its handhelds at the same time. Given, then, that the PS4K is not meant to replace the current PS4, but simply complement it, Sony have a lot more breathing room with how they can price the system. Since the PS4K will not be the primary PS4 SKU on the market, but just a premium, high end addition to the PS4 line, Sony can conceivably price it higher than they would have been able to a regular mid cycle refresh, while keeping the regular PS4 model as their cheaper entry into the PlayStation ecosystem. All of which is to say, the PS4K could be pricy- it will at the very least be $399, a full $50 more expensive than the PS4 currently is (though that difference could go as high as $100, if Sony drops the price of the current PS4 to $299 permanently- as they should), but we could conceivably see it go as high as $449 as well. It would be a high margin SKU sold at the higher end of the market, to those that are willing to spend a little extra money to get the very best that their money can buy. At the same time, Sony will not risk alienating their mass market base either, since the current PS4 will continue to be sold at a lower price. They get to, essentially, have their cake and eat it too. With that said, a $449 price for the PS4K honestly seems unlikely- $399 seems to be what Sony will target, as that seems to be the magic price point for them. If they drop the price of the base SKU to $299 in this period, then they have a healthy price difference- if not, however, then Sony can make a compelling, implicit case for all would be buyers of the base PS4 SKU to spend just $50 more and get the best PS4 SKU on the market. Given all of these competing factors, we would argue that Sony will end up pricing the PS4K at $399- with the price for the base PS4 SKU probably being kept as is at $349. "Nintendo’s strongest market, traditionally, has been the family market- the family market is not looking at spending a lot of money." Nintendo is a far more interesting case to argue. Like Sony, they, too, have learned the importance of price- but because of the opposite reasons. The Nintendo 3DS and Wii U both launched at historic high prices of $249 and $349 respectively- and both did poorly on the market, until Nintendo dropped their prices, and managed to reverse their performance somewhat. Generally, in the past, Nintendo have done the best when they have kept their prices low- appealing to the mass market with their products, as it were. This is particularly important, because Nintendo’s strongest market, traditionally, has been the family market- the family market is not looking at spending a lot of money. But any discussion on the failure of the 3DS and Wii U at higher price points must be tempered with the realization that Nintendo were essentially trying to sell what was outdated tech at premium prices- while yes, the 3DS and the Wii U had state of the art autostereoscopy and low latency streaming tech to them respectively, they were essentially half a decade old tech being sold at shockingly high prices. The market did not perceive them to be good value at those price points, and it responded appropriately. The NX, by all accounts, appears to be different- while Nintendo is likely to skip out on the extraneous media functionality that both the Xbox One and the PS4 seem to espouse, it is rumored to be a capable machine- at the very least more powerful than the PS4, and, depending on how it ultimately pans out, possibly more powerful than the PS4K too- at the very least, it would be in the same general vicinity of hardware power as the PS4K. Then, too, is the fact that Nintendo has now understood the value of selling their systems at a loss should the need for it come- they did it with both, the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U when it was necessary. Nintendo will probably not balk at selling the NX for a loss upfront as much as they would have done before. "Any discussion on the failure of the 3DS and Wii U at higher price points must be tempered with the realization that Nintendo were essentially trying to sell what was outdated tech at premium prices." Given all of this, then, how much should the NX be priced at? If we assume that Nintendo will still want to appeal to their traditional family market, but that the NX is a capable, powerful machine, somewhere between the PS4 and the PS4K in terms of power, meaning that it will not be perceived to be outdated, out of value tech, and that they are willing to take a loss on their systems now, then the best price point for Nintendo to sell the NX at will probably be $349- at that price point, the NX will appear to be good value to most families, and avoid the ‘premium’ pricing label associated with prices $399 and above, they will be able to make a good value proposition (a very powerful machine being sold at a cheaper price than the PS4K’s projected $399), and probably not make enough of a loss for it to put a serious dent in their balance books- in fact, depending on how the NX is designed, they may even break even or make a small, tidy profit for themselves. Of course, these are all just predictions and projections- the final pricing may vary. Sony may decide to be competitive and go in for the kill with the PS4K’s pricing, and try to undercut Nintendo, a strategy they have tried with the competition in the past with the PS4, PS Vita, and PSVR. Nintendo may decide to change their strategy, and rebrand and reposition themselves as a ‘premium’ alternative for the console market. The Xbox One Elite may throw a wrench in Sony and Nintendo’s plans by being a far more powerful machine than either, sold at just $299- right now, it is naturally impossible to know. But given what we do know right now, or think we know, at any rate, we feel comfortable with predicting the price points for the two systems that we have predicted above. Whether or not Nintendo and Sony go for these prices remains to be seen- and that, among other reasons, is why we are so excited for E3 this year, when the gauntlet for the next round of the console wars will probably be thrown into the ring in earnest.

  9. Xbox marketing boss Aaron Greenberg has spoken up about the recently announced Xbox Scorpio console, calling it a "beast" when referring to its power. "We're building a beast," Greenberg said during Microsoft's own E3 2016 coverage, as reported by DualShockers. "It's gonna be the most powerful console ever made, and as a guy who was here when we built the original Xbox, that being such a powerful box, and we pioneered with Xbox Live, and some of those innovative games, it really feels like we're getting back to our roots." Greenberg went on to say that the Xbox team at Microsoft is "fired up" about Scorpio. "I think the team here, we're all gamers and we love what we do--and I've never seen the morale this high," he explained. "People are fired up about what we're delivering this year for our fans, and the vision of what we're doing with Project Scorpio. It's a pretty special time." Microsoft announced the Scorpio console during its E3 2016 briefing on Monday morning. Set to release in 2017, the new system will feature 8 cores, 320Gb memory bandwidth, and six teraflops of performance that will allow for true fully uncompressed 4K gaming. Previously, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said the Scorpio is four and a half times more powerful as the existing Xbox One. In addition to strides in the area of hardware, Microsoft is continuing to push on games. Greenberg mentioned that Microsoft will release more first-party games in the next year than it ever has in its history. "Of course the games is what it's all about, right?" he said. "This year we've shown that over the next year we'll launch more first-party games that we're developing with our internal studios and our partners that we've ever had in the history of Xbox."

  13. Following a closed beta test earlier this year, an open beta for id Software's new shooter Doom is now available across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. PS4 (5.4 GB) Xbox One (8.57 GB) PC (22 GB minimum required space) Beta players will get to try Doom's team deathmatch and Warpath modes on the Heatwave and Infernal maps. You can learn more about these through GameSpot's previous coverage: maps, modes. Here is a full rundown of what's included in the Doom beta, as written by id Software: Maps: Heatwave and Infernal Game Modes: 6v6 Team Deathmatch and Warpath Demon: Revenant Weapons: Rocket Launcher, Plasma Rifle, Super Shotgun, Vortex Rifle, Static Rifle, Heavy Assault Rifle, and Lightning Gun Power Weapons: Gauss Cannon Equipment: Frag Grenade, Personal Teleporter, Siphon Grenade The trial period ends on April 17 across all platforms, though it's not clear exactly what time that day it will come to a close. Doom is slated for a May 13 release date. In other news about the game, Bethesda recently announced the game's post-launch DLC, which will include more maps, weapons, items, and customization options.

  14. Microsoft has a new adapter that lets Xbox One owners use their wireless controllers to play games on Windows 10 PCs and tablets. Available starting October 20, the adapter will sell for $25. The USB-based adapter plugs into a Windows 10 computer or tablet and connects with the Xbox One wireless controller. From there, you can use the wireless controller to play PC games and Xbox games that are streamed to a Windows 10 device. Sorry, Xbox 360 owners, the adapter supports only the Xbox One. The adapter is a small but crucial piece of Microsoft's goal to unite PCs, tablets and the Xbox One video game console under the banner of Windows 10. Officially released on July 29, Windows 10 is Microsoft's attempt to draw as many users as possible to its operating system. One way of doing that is to bridge the PC and gaming worlds. The Xbox app for Windows 10 lets you stream games from the console to other devices, which may convince some Xbox One gamers to run the new OS on their PCs and tablets. The Xbox One is also part of Microsoft's "universal apps" strategy, which lets developers create games and apps for one platform and then tweak them to run on another platform. For example, a developer could create a game once using core programming code and then easily modify it to run on a Windows 10 PC, a Windows 10 mobile device and on the Xbox One. The new adapter and the Xbox One controller will support games designed for Windows 10. To generate interest among gamers, Microsoft has released several games optimized just for Windows 10, including Minecraft, Gigantic, Killer Instinct and Gears of War. Source http://www.cnet.com/
  15. (do not read this and be like: "Why such a big essay!!!"... but I ain't forcing you to read this!) Ok, so this may sound nooby and stuff, but seriously how do you do it? I hope no ones like "OMG he has an Xbox but can't connect to the internet!!!" I've tried everything but it just doesn't work... I used to have a usb wifi of 9.3 mbps speed, the Xbox didn't connect to it.. Later on I changed internet to wired wifi and It still didn't work! The computer internet used to be super fast and all that stuff but it Broke later... FYI it was just 4mbps but faster... Now I have a Cloud wifi, you know the one that charges and can be used on the move... It is 36mbps and probably Pakistan's fastest internet but still does not connect to the Xbox! Downloading torrents is super fast but gaming is laggy... Can anyone tell me why that's happening? Please don't start a console war or force me to buy a ps3 or ps4 because I can't afford it.... I can't buy a Xbox One either... I'm stuck with this stuff... Every Xbox 360 game is pirated and costs like $1.3 or cheaper whereas others are expensive... The internet test on Xbox always gives an error while connecting to the internet but there's a green line between Xbox and network (see in the picture) If it matters, It is a Xbox 360 Go 250gb edition... Please ask me if any other info is required... And yeah I know most of this was unrelated stuff but my f'ing mind thought it would help! Thanks!
  16. Microsoft is breaking from the mold of past E3 showings and will try something different this year at the marquee industry event to be held this June in Los Angeles. We already knew that Microsoft was planning to focus more on first-party games this year, but now Head of Xbox boss Phil Spencer has teased even more ways in which the company plans to shake things up when all eyes on on the Xbox company. Spencer speaking at E3 2015 Responding to a fan's question on Twitter about Microsoft's plans for E3 this year, Spencer said Microsoft will have "some interesting changes this year for briefing and the week." "I like it when we test ourselves to do better each year." Spencer went on to say that Microsoft will talk about not only Xbox One games, but also titles for PC. "We'll have some of both," he explained. This is hardly surprising, as Microsoft's new Windows 10 operating system is due to launch this summer with a renewed focus on gaming. Windows 10 will feature a new and improved built-in Xbox app, cross-platform play support for games like Fable Legends, and even a game-streaming application. And if AMD is right, the new OS will launch at the end of July, not long after E3. Microsoft has not yet announced when it will hold its E3 press conference. But the likely bet would the Monday morning of E3 week. That would mean sometime on June 15, after Bethesda's the night earlier, and before Ubisoft, Electronic Arts, and Sony later in the day.

  19. If you've made the mistake of buying a console, you've probably spent time thinking about which console of the PS3 and the Xbox 360 has better controllers. They're very different and very similar at the same time. I made the mistake of buying both consoles, and if my opinion matters... I'd say the PS3 controllers are head-and-shoulders above the Xbox 360's controllers. A few reasons! A lot of people say that the PS3 controllers are too small, when in fact once you get used to them... they're the perfect size! They're also ergonomic and slim, where as the Xbox 360 controllers are big and bulky. I've spent hours and hours at a time gaming with both controllers, and the Playstation 3 Controllers are much better for the hands and wrists. A lot of people complain about batteries, because if you've made the mistake of buying rechargeable batteries like I have, you know that they don't last as long as you'd like them to. They're a pain in the ass! But with PS3, your controllers are charged directly into your console via USB to Mini-USB cable. You won't have to worry about buying cables for charging your controller, because these damn things are everywhere! I have 30+ USB to Mini-USB cables in my box of cables. Granted, while the Xbox 360 makes controllers both wired and wireless, with the Playstation 3, you can charge your controller while you're gaming. I personally am a fan of wireless controllers, but if you like the feel of wired controllers, just plug that motherf***er into the console! Problem solved! If you're like me, you like to feel vibrations when you're playing. It really captures the moment and gives you a bit of 4-dimensional entertainment. The Dualshock 3 controller for the Playstation 3's Accelerometer is stellar compared to the Xbox 360 Controller's Accelerometer. Matched with the slimness of the Dualshock 3 Controller, you really have a better grip on the vibrations. Coming from a gamer with both consoles, I'd say PS3 has the advantage when it comes to controllers. What do you guys think? ~Mr. Grimm
  20. The August Xbox One system update has begun its intrepid global rollout, Microsoft has announced, and this is a big 'un. The most significant addition is 3D Blu-ray support, something that the PS4 received in an update last month. It's taken far too long to arrive, but now you've got another excuse to crack out the Jurassic Park 3D Blu-ray. Another welcome new feature is mobile purchasing, which now allows you to buy games and DLC remotely so that - assuming you've told your console to download updates automatically - you should have everything waiting for you when you get home. The activity feed has also been given a scrub - you can now post status updates and comment on other people's posts. But it's the controller low battery notification that's really brought a joyful tear to our eye. No more getting caught by surprise when the gamepad runs out of juice.

  21. The longest time I've ever played a video game non-stop was probably for about 7 hours straight (excluding bathroom breaks) and the game I was playing was Skyrim. I slept like a log for like 16 hours when I finally hit the sack. Woke up, then went straight back to Skyrim. I have like 100+ hours on that game and still going strong!

  23. I was scrolling through lots of articles related to the launch of the Xbox One and almost all the comments are negative - some people even wrote that hardcore Xbox fans are going to go after the PS4
  24. If you would like a link to the article, here: http://www.joystiq.com/2013/06/19/xbox-one-80-microsoft-reverses-xbox-one-drm-features/?a_dgi=aolshare_twitter Microsoft, in response to their horrid reveal of the Xbox One, has now reversed ALL DRM features on the Xbox One, you will be able to share discs normally, you will not need Xbox Live, It will not make 24 hour checks, etc. Honestly, they have wasted insane amounts of money setting this all up and aren't going to go through with it, talk about flip-flops. Although, it makes more business sense for them since they might earn back some customers - although I feel like more people aren't going to trust them as much in the future.
  25. As for final hardware specs, the next Xbox will reportedly include a 64-bit D3D11.x 800MHz GPU, 8-core x64 1.6GHz 4MB L2 processor, 8GB DDR3 RAM, 500GB of on-board memory, USB 3.0, HDMI-out and an optical drive that will read 50GB discs.
