Dont know why you quoted me before lol, but yeah the blog post echoed what I said. This E3 will have some next gen focus, but it is primarily for third party software showcasing and services talk/first party talk
Not sure about the power, but it really was a brilliant move to get ahead of the backwards compatibility concerns. Current owners will have no worries about continuing to buy software on their platform of choice.
I agree, the reveal in 2013 showcased games and how they would look on PS4, this talk mostly about an architecture that nobody has yet with no real specs besides an 8 core cpu and how much faster an SSD is compared to a HDD.
They didnt announce any specs.. ps4 they actually announced specs due to confidence
I feel like they announced key features that the next Xbox is also going to have (SSD, ray tracing, BC), so when Xbox announces them they won't seem like as big of a deal.
I never even thought this was a question, I assumed from day one that this would be the case.
Considering the PS5 the wired article talked about supports 8k and Ray Tracing, that'd be pretty damned spectacular.
On the contrary, their message is going to be: Next gen is coming if you want the shiniest of the graphics and 60fps and higher, but you'll be able to play every single game we are showing here today on your current consoles.Why next gen when they have Games/services still coming out for This gen?
"huy guys, good guy Phil here. i wanted to tell you that the box you currently have is over and now, please help me welcome the tease information about next gen consoles. the mostest powerfulest evar"
LOL bye to gears 5 marketing push then? okay. sounds like a great plan. bwahahahaha
I think its been fairly obvious since Phil Spencer took over that they want the most powerful console, but good to hear from you none the less.
I guess my expectations were of a more explicit link between the presented information and MS's next gen consoles. The discussion of those topics at GDC was very broad, nothing pointing to Scarlett - unless that's what your saying (that the topics covered at GDC are core technologies of Scarlett)?
it's overton window magic
Eh LiS and Vampyr are not good stories to me
This, people were just surprised by the news drop. Nothing that we couldn't have seen before
oh fine then, still I'm a bit anxius and nervous since i don't like the direction they took like ep9 just for fanservice sake
what he's waiting for
Yep. Although the reconstruction of Xbox DirectX Backend is not included.I guess my expectations were of a more explicit link between the presented information and MS's next gen consoles. The discussion of those topics at GDC was very broad, nothing pointing to Scarlett - unless that's what your saying (that the topics covered at GDC are core technologies of Scarlett)?
Is it limited BC as it is now or full BC?
