And that would mean not only plummeting a hefty fee for that company, but also having to operate a brand new branch with over 1000 emplyees. Thats insanely costly.
Oh wow. Was awake the whole night for this lol. I see access to some login entry database tables via the Xbox Live API SDK is still possible. That’s insane.
Sea of Thieves and Crackdown 3 Arena Betas have a lot of entries - suggests these are coming soon. There is so much more but ... I don’t want to risk myself. It was fun two years ago. But I don’t want to be the party pooper again. Will probably report it to MS because ... Damn.
By the way: MS getting Zenimax is completely disillusioned. Not even because of the money - but because of the number of people working there.
Just tell me if there is a recent entry of Battletoads.
Come on now, spill the beans, or at least tell us via PM :P
I don't think Banjo would garner much attention in this time period. It's style is not what people are into nowadays, very heavy on collecting items and just overall a slower game. I think they should only return to it if they are doing something different, Nuts and Bolts was a start I guess. A remaster is not a good idea imo, especially given the fact the games are available in Rare Replay.
I say this as a massive Banjo fan who enjoyed those games more than Mario 64.
Klobrille genuinely knows things or something?
I mean betas for both games shouldn't even be a huge surprise if Crackdown is seriously going to even release. Sorry that I'm losing most of my faith in the latter.
Some key examples from this gen alone would be:
- Kinect (and Kinect fitness programs)
- Xbox One "Elite"
- Picture in Picture support
- The Kinect adapter for Xbox One S/One X
- Proprietary headphone jacks on controllers
Right now I wouldn't be surprised at all if they announce and release the next Xbox in 2019. I just feel like to do that, they need to have all their ducks in a row in order to not piss people off. Full backwards compatibility for Xbox/360/One games and accessories would be the absolute minimum that they need.
Reverse psychology please work
Even if I would like to - I can’t post anything since I completely agree with the verification process here on Era and I obviously can’t verificate anything since this is just a database leak. All I have as my „verification“ is my own leak 2 years ago which obviously turned out true since I only stated what I found in a huge freaking table of data. I'm sorry.
As for sales, did they actually confirm that each One X is sold at a loss? I remember an interview where they talked along those lines, but I remembered it being more general talk about how they "usually" take a loss on hardware. If they did, that's an interesting wrinkle! But haven't the Xbox One S models been sold at a loss for quite some time too?
As for press, I feel like I've seen quite a few outlets that are already scratching their heads about the existence of the One X. Reviews are very positive, but they're grading it based on how it delivers on marketing promises. I won't pretend that I'm not wearing a tinfoil hat right now, but I feel like 2019 is a very real possibility for the new hardware.
PM a mod/admin and he or she can decide on whether it should be posted or not.
But this reeks like wannabe-insider talk without showing any receipts.
PS5 - Death Stranding, FFVII Remake, The Last of Us Part 2 (cross-gen)
Xbox "Next" - Gears of War 5, Halo 6 (If we don't see it this fall), Forza Something or Other
I feel like Microsoft's potential approach would be to throw their biggest existing titles at the box as soon as it launches. Maybe compliment that with news about new titles that are coming not long after the standard fare.
Death Stranding would certainly sell the hardcore PS fanbase on new hardware for Sony. I also feel it worth noting that I'm expecting full backwards compatibility for both boxes with at least the current gen. Microsoft should realistically keep support going back to the original Xbox.
PM a mod Klobrille and mention the last time you did this as well :P
Share please. We're starving for new info lol.
think we're starting to hit diminshing returns as there's already mid gen consoles to satiate graphic whores. There needs to be something else. Perhaps next generation is when VR hits it's full stride.
Again. I have nothing for verification as my personality has nothing to do with this. It’s a technical thing which I know some things about. All I can do is to prove that I’m the same guy who found out the stuff 2 years ago.
I don't fully buy Phil's talk about how the platform just isn't ready yet. That could easily be PR speak for "we couldn't justify investing in it for the current hardware".
I just can't see cross-gen titles looking much better at all on the new consoles compared to X with the potential GPU budget available. Pro and X will only make next-gen incredibly underwhelming if the next-gen boxes launch as early as next year.
At this point last gen, I was desperate for new consoles to come out because 360 and PS3 were really showing their age on a 1080p screen. But this gen, I've got a full blown 4K OLED and X and Pro are still blowing me the fuck away. I mean, I'm playing through Gears 4 right now and the IQ is literally perfect, combined with HDR it looks sublime. I'm not craving a new generation any time soon, which is the polar opposite of how I felt at this point in previous generations. Or perhaps next gen will be about more than just additional horsepower, we'll have to wait and see. Obviously VR will benefit much more from next-gen, so there's that I suppose.
I just don't see the demand for new consoles being there next year.
I do think you bring up a great point in that mid-gen refreshes are going to hurt the appeal of "next-gen" no matter when that happens. Sony and Microsoft can wait until they can have a considerable jump from their mid-gen consoles, but that would leave the PS4/Xbox One looking extremely weak. If they release earlier, it won't look like much of a graphical improvement from the refreshed boxes.
That being said, as someone who hasn't invested in a 4K display or either of the mid-gen refreshes, I'm starting to feel like my PS4/Xbox One S are showing their age.
Time will tell what actually happens, but I've always felt like this gen wouldn't last more than six years. Mid-gen refreshes just helped keep consoles more relevant for folks like you in the meantime. Otherwise, those who wanted to invest in 4K displays would likely flock to PC.
Come on tell us! :D
Btw that Crackdown 3 beta Arena stuff.
They just need to show it for the hype to be starting again for it. Or even let us play it.
I would love to revisit Albion. Project name could be Wisdom. An UK Studio should do it.
I would love to play around with Ms. Dark again. The Coalition should definitely help if it’s a 3rd person game. I mean ... Not them alone obviously.
I would also love to play the Crackdown 3 campaign in 4-player coop.
I would love playing Forza with the rising sun on the Horizon.
I would love to play AoE4 soon ... But it‘s probably super early.
I would love to have a really high player-count (connections per session) for Xbox biggest franchise.
Oh and I think I‘m sure Phil likes Mechs.
I‘m sure they have things I have no fucking clue about what they mean.
I doubt I get anything for Conker, Banjo or Crimson Skies in the foreseeable future.
Make out of that what you want. I don’t know what is just a prototype etc. I would definitely love to see those things happening though.
Congrats on the new baby, and as the voice of experience: good luck!
