    They confirmed VR support for this autumn. Must be out of this world in VR.

    Something I've also questioned, all I could come up with was maybe in the August event?

    Instead of wait for next show, it's become wait for next event.
    Into flight sims or not, no one can doubt its beauty.
    One of the few times, can't debate artistic design or technology used, it's just simply stunning.

    obviously they have to deliver, but their saying it's going back to it's roots or something like that.... So may be up your street again.

    I would actually like to play this, though I doubt it would look as good as the screenshot released on my PC
    yeah based on the arstechnica article about it today you need a top line PC
    I would be lucky to get double digit Fps

    Maybe those dips are streaming-related? I read that a lot of the ground data is literally streamed online and not from disc.

    Didn't realise it was that demanding.
    Be interesting what it could end up like on the xsx.
    As long as not chasing native 4k, think could still be stunning on the closed box.
    Wonder if streaming from the web can take advantage of the decompression blocks?
    By the sounds of the state of the xsx dev boxes and how demanding it is, I'm not surprised if it isn't ready to be xsx gameplay demoed. Even though technically hardly anything has.

    Yes I assume its most likely a streaming issue, so PC specs aint that super important, unless they are using a super good (and expensive) compression scheme to store the data.
    Then again if its streaming a lot of data nonstop, the server costs must be pretty big

    I've got high hopes for the new Forza but I think they might be going the same direction as GTSport. Heavy online focus with racing series. Followed by SP campaign as before. Hope road cars aren't ignored too much.

    Can't remember if I ever posted it or not, but I've always wondered why there wasn't a system hdr configuration.
    Then games would map to that.
    Doesn't mean you can't have in game configuration to tweak it. But this way there's a reasonable baseline default the game will have to use.
    Just seemed so obvious, that it didn't make sense not to have it.

    Microsoft quietly announced they're dropping the "Xbox 20/20" phrasing...

    https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2020/05/05/xbox-2020-the-future-of-xbox/

    Sounds like Jerret West, CVP, Gaming Marketing, may need to be replaced.

    Gary Whitta, one of the hosts of Kinda Funny's new Xcast podcast will have Phil Spencer on his personal Animal Talking late night talk show tomorrow...



    If you don't know who he is, he's been the PC & gaming business for years. I've really enjoyed him on Xcast.

    Anyway, I guess we might get some juicy news tomorrow.

    I will never cease to be amazed at the way gamers can use games like this. I hope they visit Phil's island, I would pay good money to visit Phil Spencer's island! :yes:

    Lovely show. Never watched it before, but will be back.

    Tom Warren had a nice little recap...



    I will post the link to the video in the morning, but it will be here if you can't wait...

    Gary hasn't posted the video on his channel, but Kotaku has a nice article on it with their video clips from Twitch...

    Can we get the Twitch clip embed fixed?

    Full show here.

    BTW he does get asked what he thought of the PS5 console reveal. He kinda responded but dodged most of it. Still interesting reply

    It was always my belief that the XSX team targeted sound levels at no louder that the sound level of the XBO
