So, after watching GT's E3 awards videos, I agree with there verdict; The Witcher 3 looks amazing. I love open world RPG games but, I've never played either of the first 2 "Witcher" games. Skyrim has sucked up most of my RPG gaming since it was released. Are "The Witcher" games a good fit for Skyrim fans?
About this cloud stuff, I just don't think it is going to have as much an affect on things as some of the Xbox fanboys are dreaming about. Yes, some games will have dedicate servers for online play, just like some do now but, I do not believe that one day every game on the XB1 will use dedicated servers. I also think that very few multi-platform games will use the services, BF4 is going to be P2P on both the XB1 and PS4 so, no advantage there. I also don't think that this cloud computing will make games that much better, if anything, it will just make up for the differences between the XB1 and PS4 specs. I'm not even convince it will do that though, especially now that MS has back tracked on there online requirement, devs can't count on there games being online and having access to the cloud so I bet even fewer bother designing for it now. Maybe I'm completely wrong but will just have to wait and see.
What I find funny is that in the Xbox thread a few are trying to convince every one that being next gen doesn't just mean better graphics and beefier specs but, that is all it has ever meant to me. I don't play PC games, I've always been a console person from NES to 360 so, new generations to me have always been my PC upgrades, just give me a more powerful machine that gives developers more freedom to make better games. If I was a PC gamer, every few years I'd spend money to upgrade for the sole reason of getting better game performance and better looking graphics; that's all I want from a new console. I really don't care about social network integration or TV service integration and all that other fluff. I just want a pure gaming machine, this is my 8 years in the making PC upgrade. This is why I decided to cancel my XB1 pre-order yesterday and just focus on getting excited for the PS4. Honestly, in the end, I think both consoles are going to be great gaming machines with very little differences between the two, I just like Sony's message better.
