Who's getting a new Xbox?
Nope. After many years of being an avid gamer I just can’t get excited enough about the new game releases to justify it. It’s going to take something very special to make me make the jump to the new console, rather than just another rehash of some tired franchises.Posted 8 months agoaphex_2kMember
Recently bought a new Tv that does 4k and hdr and decided its time to ditch the ps3 (which I’ve only had a couple of years). Been a while since I bought a new console on release day. Forza 7 and one of those pew pew shooty games should keep me going. Quite excited actually!Posted 8 months ago
The problem for the Xbox is the lack of exclusives. I am sure it will look all whizzy on a nice TV, tho.
Xbox: GOW4, Sunset Overdrive, Ori and the Blind Forest (Also PC), Forza, Halo erm?
PS4: Last Of Us, Uncharted, Bloodborne, Yakuza, Nioh, Horizon: Zero Dawn, No Man’s Sky, Gravity Rush 2The Last Guardian etc
…as for upcoming, there’s nothing. I have had both consoles, and both have their strengthsm but it’s a rather stark situation for MS to have the best hardware with the X (or at least most powerful), but no exclusive IP.Posted 8 months ago
Not me. Its sole purpose appears to be 4K gaming, which would mean replacing a perfectly good high-end-a-few-years-back 42″ telly and an amp that supports HDMI 2.0. That’s easily North of a grand.
I can’t decide on the PS4 or the Xbox…but I will be getting one or the other
Go with whichever most of your friends have. Online gaming FTW.Posted 8 months agoPoopscoopSubscriber
Not gamed in many moons but was an avid PC gamer back in the day.
Are the latest consoles just upscaling to 4k these days or is it a genuine processed output?
It was always a point of contention years back wasn’t it, about the true resolution output of consoles?
That said, yes, it’s all about the game play and what system your fiends are on really I suppose.Posted 8 months agotimbob78Member
Well… like a few people no doubt I bought an Xbox 360 after the Ps2 and then subsequently the Xbox one, and I can’t honestly see a good reason to invest in Xbox onex. Maybe if I had a 4k TV. I was hoping to see something special after E3 but alas I am not convincedPosted 8 months agoaphex_2kMember
OK so makes sense if you don’t have a 4k tv to stick with what you have. I still have my PS2 and wont get rid of my 3 as I have too many games on disc
(actual discs not on the HDD).
CoD / Battlefield / Battlefront look great to me, Forza 7 and maybe another driving game. Oh and FIFA perhaps. That’d keep me going for a bit. Must say Forza 7 looks stunning.Posted 8 months agoP-JayMember
So new games that come out will be always compatible with the old ps4 and xbox
So they say.
PS Pro and Xbox X aren’t next gen machines, they’re upgraded current ones. 4K plus higher frame rates in some cases, but you need the TV to use ‘em.
I’ve also read that there’s a chance this might be the last ‘generation’ of console, they’ll still bring out new ones every couple of years but they’ll be based on the same infrastructure so play the same games, like PC gaming really. Could be total BS though.Posted 8 months agodonksMember
Can I just hijack this as there are many learned consol types on here…
Yesterday I had to download the latest update software for our PS4 via a memory stick as we could not get access onto the PS4 for some reason. I was aware that all of the content saved on the hard drive would be wiped and would need re-installation so we did the disc games and then the internet down loaded ones next and it’s these we can’t access? It now tells me these are already downloaded and installed and we must purchase as new.
I thought something like this would happen but hoped it would be ok as it’s the same machine and not another (game sharing etc) so why does the software not read the unique PS4 I’d number like our software at work on the computers?Posted 8 months ago
I’m stuck now and the kids are getting tetchy…. I downloaded off the PS4 game store as I couldn’t find these on the machine anywhere.
What am I doing wrong?stevehineMember
Donks – you might have to reactivate it as your primary console; You can only tie your psn account to one at a time.
Otherwise you need to run the gauntlet of Sony’s support – I’ve heard mixed talesPosted 8 months ago
; Though I’m sure it’s a common enough issue that they can sort it quickly
