    Exactly :lol:

    Proper console launches has to always be accompanied by console war rhetoric and propaganda.

    The worst bit of that is he says 'representation' of the UI. Does that mean we haven't actually seen a real working UI yet?

    I agree. Reading the last cboat quote, I really don't know what is their intention behind of this.

    That is your decision to make, I have made mine. Besides, read what I was replying to. If you draw out any other inference apart from that present in my response to his question then the fault is yours, not mine.

    Dunno, I saw that number floating around somewhere but it factored in MSAA in the calculation.

    I'm not going to link the other forum, and I don't know how to find his post on reddit, so I'm just going to copy paste. Mods can do what they will with this post.

    You can choose to believe him or not, but this is the explanation he gave.

    I think we have, just in bits and pieces, like from kiosks, that Wired(?) video ages ago, and some kid on Youtube, but nothing advanced.

    Yeah, MSAA is a dead horse for next-gen. MLAA etc are the way it's going to go.

    They all seem to be quoting the same angry source there now. Other's saying it's not so bad.

    Then it must have been about the PC version.

    MSAA doesn't make much sense on the nextgen consoles - the bandwidth and memory costs are way too high on the mid level GPUs and cheap RAM, higher resolutions and post-AA should be good enough on TVs and average view distances.
    Also, shader aliasing and specular aliasing in particular are becoming much more important problems (because of the higher contrast of the aliasing) and MSAA is no help there at all.

    But a PC with a high end video card (or more) can easily afford it, especially if the game is CPU limited anyway.

    He's been spot on based on a second prediction that hasn't come to fruition?

    :smile: Okay, okay, but he is not predicting you or me are going to be taken over by an alien. He might be right....

    On a different note, these are the Xbox One cases:

    [​IMG]

    I find them cute. I want Forza 5 -pre-ordered-, Zoo Tycoon -looking where to preorder it, it runs at 1080p by the way-, Dead Rising 3 -love games with vampires, but zombies, it depends on the game-, Ryse -pre-ordered already-.

    Forza 5 needs 35GB of space in your Xbox One HD.

    [​IMG]


    Dead Rising 3 also needs 35GB of HD space.

    [​IMG]

    Ryse goes further and it takes up to 47GB of space.

    [​IMG]

    I think the hard drive is going to run short of space for bytes in no time.

    Another reason I would like physical media to stick around a bit longer. :wink:
