It is still the best Seller at Amazon. Didn't MS say more was being sent after the DRM announcment?

Hands down the worse thing about playing online using PSN.

Nobody uses a mic.

Feels like play against a bunch of bots.

Agreed.

I'm a pretty big gamer. And Im still not sure if I know the difference between the Wii and Wii-U.

If I'm playing a multiplayer shooter (very rarely) I generally prefer that. Unless you're playing in teams, or with actual friends (you know, people you know offline biggrin.gif), the chatter is useless.

That's because it is. I don't mind though as I preferred the Duke back in the day. I like that they've spread the zone between the analog sticks too as that was my main complain about the previous Dualshocks. I can get past the positioning if my thumbs aren't constantly bumping each other while playing. The One controller looks like it's just improving on what I consider the best controller ever made.

I hear you Daekwan, I own both ps3 and 360, and the lack of included headset was just a killer to the ps3. So to see Microsoft follow this same path this generation is mind boggling. I have ran across players on live with their surround sound so loud that people had to tell these players to turn there stuff down . I know the kinect is supposed to have noise cancelling features, we'll see how well it really works. I'm just hoping that I can use my astro 5.8 mix amp with my pc360 headset, and use kinect for voice chat. I know it will work on the ps4 since they have standard 3.5mm jack to controller.

Yeah, I have to immediately mute everyone that has their kinect mic open, they're the worst. What's crazy is that with the way they're going to judge people and group them based on how often they get muted, they're going to end up grouping the kinect-ers with all the racist little kids. Which is fine by me, because both are equally annoying...but I don't think a lot of them will appreciate it.

Unfortunately for Nintendo they caught that third console hubris and release the WiiU thinking they'd capture that same Mom and Dad crazed casual (toy) market. That was a very wrong gamble. Now they're struggling to re-market their new console to people that don't know it, and people that don't care for it.

Third Console? Wii U is #6 for Nintendo.

I think he meant third as in behind 360 and PS3 after its huge sales drop.

The rule seems to be every 3, So it was the N64 losing to the PS1 via expensive cartridges and allowing Sony an "In" and now the WiiU misstep.

Technically it’s their 7th…. tongue.gif

The rule about rules is that they are usually more guidelines than rules.

Thats great , call me skepitcal that it works in all enviroments, and able to filter out all other noise in that enviroment. Maybe I'm wrong, but rarely have I seen a noise cancelling feature so smart that only intended source is heard. To me it reeks of you may not like Kinect, but we have spend alot of money on this device, and you will use it dammit:)

Part of the kinect being able to cancel out noise is it knows what sounds are coming up from the speakers.

Have you ever used the Boss noise canceling headphones? They do an amazing job.

Anyone know if Microsoft has figured out what it's official specs are yet? rolleyes.gif

They probably don't know yet.

Bd2003, are you even getting a next gen console? I seem to remember reading a post where you said you'd never pay fox xbox live again because it should be free. smile.gif

Noise cancellation for headphones is completely unrelated to what they're doing with kinect.

The example they showed at the end of that video sounded horrible. Maybe good enough to pick up commands, but if that's the best they can do in a controlled environment, it's going to be terrible for voice chat.

This was asked a couple of pages back. I thought it could use highlighting.

I too think some computational and bandwidth (innards) analysis of MS's 'cloud' would be helpful in drawing some conclusions. For instance how impactful is MS's claim of 3:1 XBOne's in the cloud? ... Sounds! impressive.

So far, in my casual reading, MS has categorized Latency Sensitive tasks and Latency Insensitive tasks. And has dropped the tag line 3 to 1.

Q: Are there bottlenecks/roadblocks other than bandwidth and latency?

Q: What kind of latency in this application is acceptable?

Q: Is there a type of online game that would NOT benefit from MS's cloud vision? ... What are those limitations? How about twitch games in particular?

Q: How much data would playing Destiny online for one hour actually use?

Sorry, if this was considered a question dump. I started thinking about it and these are what I came up.

Xbox One and Xbox 360 Games Win Big at E3 – Handily Leading All Platforms

At the recent E3 show in Los Angeles, we unveiled a new generation of games for Xbox One. Since the show, we’ve been incredibly excited to see the reaction to the games we showcased. The award nominations and awards have been pouring in and the teams are thrilled with the positive response to the games they’ve been working so hard on.

Last night, the “Games Critic’s Awards: Best of E3” nominations were announced and Xbox continued to be highlighted as a winning platform, with Xbox One and Xbox 360 leading all platform nominations. Xbox One and Microsoft’s exclusive titles received 11 nominations, the most of any game console. In addition to Xbox One being nominated for top console of the show, the Xbox exclusive game “Titanfall” became the most nominated game in E3 Games Critic’s Awards history ever, with six award nominations.

In addition, here are a few other trends we’ve seen to date:

“Titanfall”, an Xbox platform exclusive, has been widely acclaimed as the big winner of E3 and remains the lead game across all platforms with 101 nominations and 54 wins, for global nominations and awards.

Across US award nominations*, Xbox exclusive titles have received 168 nominations and 68 wins, more than any other next-generation platform’s exclusive lineup. Top title nominations and winning awards include:

“Forza Motorsport 5” earned 24 nominations and 8 wins
“Dead Rising 3” earned 17 nominations and 7 wins
“Project Spark” earned 13 nominations and 4 wins
“Ryse: Son of Rome” earned 11 nominations and 2 wins

We’re really excited to see the positive response to the Xbox One exclusive games line-up and we remain committed to making Xbox One the best place to play games – led by the biggest exclusives, new IP and blockbuster franchises that play best on Xbox – delivered via exclusive technology only available on Xbox One.

Do they have a link to who did which of the nominations and awards? I have a hard time believing anything from Xbox.com about Xbox winning anything. (Especially after the Spike exclusive deal and finding out about Microsoft's half billion advertising deal with Viacom, which includes Spike, Gametrailers and several others.)

That is like trusting Nintendo Power that Nintendo won E3.
post #4226 of 14773
Well, you can see the Game Critics Award nominees here[/url; nominee stats here]. Xbox One nominated for best console? Were any of the three not nominated for that? (Actually it was Best Hardware and Wii U was not nominated; others were PS4, Oculus Rift, Razr Blade and Nvidia Shield). PS4 the console was a "Best of Show" nominee whereas Xbox One was not.

They really should listed whose contests the "wins" were in. Winning a nod in Nerdy Joe Nobody's Blog doesn't count biggrin.gif.

It is a console exclusive or is that too hard to understand. Console meaning it isn't coming on any other console unless you are telling us a PC is a console now. Sure it might be coming to PS4 in the future but until then it is a console exclusive. Same with Warhammer for te PS4.
