Here is a message for all game developers: IF YOU WON’T TRY, WE WON’T BUY!!

    All xbox one owner should never stand for this. I don’t here bull crap about how this doesn’t matter from a developer who is putting out 1080p for the same game on the ps4. I don’t want to hear its the hardware because it’s not. This is simply a choice made by the developer to not put the needed work into the game translation to the xbox one because they don have the numbers the ps4 has. Perfect example is Diablo who tried to ship under 1080p but then heard it from fans and Microsoft and just so happened to find the resolution! You can’t produce what isn’t possible. So it only proves that you weren’t trying to reach the resolution you reached on the ps4 and it had nothing to do with the system not being about to accomplish this. All of this is laziness based on the developer only. The latest games said to be in a low resolution state is PES 2015 (right now have already said they will put more effort now that they have gotten complaints)and possibly Shadow of Mordor. I was originally going buy Shadow of Mordor but now I’m not going to unless the resolution issues are found to be incorrect. If this game comes in at 720p natively I won’t even bother buying the game. Why should I. If you don’t care about me and xbox one fans with our numbers then don’t produce for the system period. We don’t want your left overs! “IF YOU WON’T TRY, WE WON’T BUY!”

Xbox one hits China! Could it be big for microsoft?

China’s xbox one launch was a success. It’s funny that nobody really is talking about it. If this would have been playstation it would have been talked about from sun up to sun down. Another positive was that the cost of the system was very high but yet look at the lines. China has been without a console for so long that a big console like xbox one gives lots of hope and excitement. The cost of course is talked about as a negative by the few sites that talked about the launch however what they don’t tell you is that this cost would be the same for ps4 if it launched there. It has nothing to do with microsoft trying to make money off China. It’s just the cost involved in  bringing a console to them. Congrats Microsoft and China! More numbers are needed and who know maybe China could be bigger than most know. Maybe this will give Microsoft the needed 3rd major division of sales and without the ps4 there to compete right now numbers should help.  

Final Fifa comparison

Now to be fair I don believe either of these picture truly give the real picture seen on the tv screen. I personally can promise you my xbox one fifa 15 look better than what these pictures show. Then again I have a great tv and it have a great calibration set up for it. So if these pictures are what you are looking at rest assured it can be better most likely for either system you pick. My next statement is that IF this these images are legitimately done equally I would have to say that the ps4 versions of these images show a little more detail in some pics and the xbox one has a little bit better colors in other pics but not as big as the other videos posted online. Now who do we believe?

I can’t say without a ps4 of my own but what I will say is that I don’t believe the difference make that big of a issue if you don’t have options to have both system. If you do have both then xbox one’s extra content give it the nod even if the graphics are equal. The blur thing is a acquired taste because personally I like crisp and clear not blurred visions. Another person might have a different feeling. Either way these picture are probably as good as its going to get but understand they don’t show you the exact results you will get at home. These graphics will be better on your TV reguardless of the version. I just got another new calibration done for my tv and I can tell you they can change everything about your graphics. It is vital to have a good tv with a great calibration. Most of the time whatever difference exist between two consoles can be made up for by these two things present if you own only one system.

Bloodborne only possible on ps4 claim

Of course, that doesn’t really explain why it’s not coming out on Xbox One or PC, but that probably has more to do with Sony’s negotiating skills than technological limitations.

Well wonders never stop do they. Another developer is said to have the opinion that his game is only possible due to the ps4 power and not possible on any other platform. But when ask to explain what specifically made it different especially with PC having more power and graphic power than ps4. The Developer didn’t give an example which means it mostly likely, as the quote above hints to, has more to do with contract negotiating with Sony more than real differences between the xbox one and pc vs ps4. But it kills me that you hear this stuff without given proof on why. Example, Forza isn’t possible on ps4 because it’s based cloud computing of the Azure 300,000 servers driveatar gameplay. We all know how weak Sony’s network still is so I can see how it’s not possible to run forza on ps4. But just to say it, is a joke. Again, even when I had only a ps4, statements like this and blind hype, I never agreed with and still don’t now.

Shadow of Mordor beats out Forza horizon 2 for my wallet.

Forza horizon 2 is a amazingly exciting driving game with a lot to do. It’s going to do microsoft proud I feel. However, “There is Another”. Shadow of Mordor offers a never before seen AI memory system and gameplay that is truly different and unique. I can’t help but feel like I might be going with Shadow of Mordor over the xbox one exclusive racer. I know I should buy forza and I should feel like it’s overwhelmingly a must have now but for some reason I don’t want it right now. To be honest I am more interested in Driveclub than forza horizon 2 even though I don’t own a ps4. I know that is weird because I believe forza horizon will be the better overall game and higher rated game. I guess when I did own a playstation I was so excited for Driveclub that it stuck with me even to today. I think another issue is that I prefer street racing over off road racing.  I don’t really want to plow through grass and gates while racing because it takes away from the realism. That’s probably why I wanted Forza motorsport so bad when it came out.  But hey I still hope it does well for xbox one sales and all but come Tuesday, I am going with Shadow of Mordor over Forza Horizon 2.

Digital foundry, how did you get play back graphics nobody else has for ps4’s fifa 15?

This is yet another comparison video that shows again the lack of contrast and color pop in the ps4. It is a clear difference and one that to surprising another person caught on my previous comparison video as well. So that’s two separate people catching the same lack of details on their own separate comparison videos compared to digital foundry’s video, who is the same site that tried to say that there was no difference between fifa 14 last year when a blind mouse could see that the xbox one version was clearly better. This year however, digital foundry either is showing a video nobody has the ability to show or has once again done whatever they could to protect the ps4 superiority hype lie by doctoring the video codecs for the ps4 to hide their true lack of color and contrast when compared to the xbox one. It was especially funny to see in their write up how they claim that because during a beginning of the match the frame dropped a little on a cut scene, not game play but a cut scene(and I mean a very little) on the xbox one that this proves that the hardware has reached its limits of handling gaming now. Well if this was the case why did the ps4 slow down last year if they already reached their limit on fifa 14 how did they get better for Fifa 15? Answer, because that doesnt mean jack crap. Then their focus on blurry replays verse clear crisp replays were a joke. I prefer to see clear and crisp not blurry exaggerated video magic. I hate sites like digital foundry that set up themselves to claim to do fair comparisons and end up lying to the public because they are located in a region that love ps4 and is scared of showing anything different. Now granted I don’t have a ps4 anymore and can’t do this comparison myself but I’m willing to beat this guy above and the the first guy video I posted earlier are telling the truth based on the track record of digital foundry. You be the judge.

There is no substitute for me and my xbox one.

Be amazed is right. From the power of the kinect to the flat out power of the console, everything is top notch. Today I got my missing link back today. My kinect. I had a small issue with it but Microsoft not only paid for everything but I didn’t even make one phone call to them to do it. That’s right everything was so simple and effortlessly set up online that I had my kinect shipped off and a new one back in my house in less than a week. I also downloaded the latest app comedy central today and watched the last episode of South park because I could. My voice commands are back, my camera sees me and knows me, it’s just a complete package that I can’t see doing without it. I recommend to any of you that want a xbox one to get the kinect. It truly makes it complete and different. So right now I’m looking at my amazingly beautiful samsung and xbox one graphics combined to create heaven on my screen. Even the simple stuff like playing xbox music makes my game room come alive with brilliant lighting and rich texture if graphics and amazing sound thanks to my Vizio sound bar.

Having unlimited access to do whatever I want is so gratifying I tell you. Unlike some other music apps on other system who spend more time telling you that the servers are down, it’s up and running for me flawlessly and doesn’t crash like others consoles out there. I will playing some destiny tonight, some madden 15, and then fifa 15 and wrapping things up with nhl 15 and a little tomb raider, who I can’t stop playing over and over again. Next week Mordor and Forza horizon 2, if you can’t find the wow factor in these things then you just not looking for it. Its Xbox one people, best games, best controls, best online, smarter company and best of all, they’re there for me and has never done anything to let me down or lied to me. Loyalty given to me, loyalty given back! Xbox Forever, not going anywhere else!
