    Did get my code. Came in a XBL message not a email.

    Haven't bothered to redeem it yet LOL. That's what happens when you play WoW, I mean Destiny.

    I have mine and will probably not use it. If anyone is interested PM me and I'll send it to you.

    New trailer. Haven't watched yet to see how it compares to Beta footage.

    Looks awful.

    How nice of them to upload a 30fps video for a 60fps mode.

    "Bubu we want 60 FPS!"

    "Looks awful"

    :runaway:

    Got around to playing this for ten minutes. In person it's definitely odd looking. It's almost too clear. The chick I was playing's hair looked like a plastic helmet. But really I guess it looks like 360 Gears in 1080P so that looks odd. Lighting is flat as DF pointed out is I think the main problem.

    Well, I noted long ago 1080P at 60 FPS requires 4X the power of 30 FPS/720P past gen just for equivalent graphics. Since XBO is only maybe 5-6 the flops of 360...it's going to suck up a lot of that. Even given the Xbo is really probably 10X as strong as 360 when you account for architecture efficiency gains (number from my butt).

    I guess it's like 1080P is really exposing all the graphical problems.

    In fairness, it seems like this is a real beta. Which, nobody expects any more, we expect polished demo betas. There's been lots of technical issues reported like a bug where all the textures flicker on and off.

    The fact it's a real beta leads me to wonder if the game is "behind". Isn't it a "small" (around 100?) team also? You know they cant delay it, so..

    The trailer is just bad. I'm not sure what you're getting at.

    I'm hoping this is where games are headed, I get people put in doubt because of trust and certain consoles are weaker than others, but I also have confidence that we are leaving the dx9/10 era of graphics :) and finally moving into those dx11 tech demoes!

    Environment shots are probably not that far off. The assets aren't that mind-blowing really. The foliage doesn't even look that great for what you'd expect of your typical UE bigshot function even (max'ed LOD & AF etc).

    Chromatic aberration is annoying.

    Wait, so that's PC version?

    That's one of the most annoying things about all these MS titles coming to Win 10 for me. I have no idea what's running on what. But I always suspect it may be PC version cause that'll look best.

    Also, Rod Fergussen basically gave away that it's dynamic Res with his Xbox s comments? Boo, was hoping for true 1080P. I guess sticking to 30 FPS for campaign though is still better than 343's choices.

    They're making games dynamic res now so that it'll scale automatically to the computer and Scorpio later. I think moving forward, most if not all of first party games will use dynamic res for more powerful computers that can run above 1080p. Just because it's dynamic res doesn't mean it can't be 1080p lock. Games are now designed with backward and forward compatibility.

    So Gears 4 at 1080p is just too good to be true on Xbone after all. That's that, I'm selling my XBone and just gonna wait for Scorpio for some decent res on xbox games. Can't put up with dynamic res or 900p BS any more :).

    Thats one of the other reasons I am actually annoyed. A PC gamer can play either on a controller or with a keyboard mouse on a desk. The last is what most PC gamers use.
    On the consoles most people tend to use controllers. Even after MS allows full m+kb support still people are more comfortable with a controller while sitting on a couch. Otherwise they would have to arrange a different setup to allow a comfortable use of m+kn on the couch.

    Multiplayer will be less balanced with people using mostly controllers on console and m+kb on PCs.

    Who cares in coop what people use as a controller?? I don't.

    For competitive MP it is of course unfair. K+M is much simpler.
