    I don't understand how a game like Ryse is achieved @ 900p yet, Titanfall is 792p - using the source engine and honestly, looks bad for even a last gen game.

    That being said, I'm completely opposite of you. I've hardly touched my PS4 until infamous - now I'm all about infamous and it's given me enough motivation to go back and finish playing Killzone Shadow Fall as well.

    But I think the X1 has some decent stuff. Ryse was beautiful game, repetitve, but beautiful. Crimson Dragon wasn't much to look at but I always enjoyed those rail dragon shooter games that were originally on Sega. Killer Instinct is one of the games I said I wouldn't touch, but gave it a free download and ended up paying for the full thing and playing it daily.

    What I'm seeing is it seems the Xbox One is the harder machine to develop for, like PS3/Cell was for it's first few years. I think there is plenty of power in it, but you need the right developers who want to put in the proper time to tap into it, the guys who made Titanfall obviously didn't take the time to figure the system out in depth. The game looks terrible and runs about as well as it looks. Xbox One is PS3 all over again. I'm telling ya.

    probably explains the difference in sales numbers. that, and the price.

    And if you've read the posts then you know why!!! Do you think I enjoy bad-mouthing a console I paid for £430 for? Of course I don't but until I have something to be happy about then, yes, my posts about the Xbox One are going to be negative.

    However, I am criticising it in a PlayStation thread so I don't quite understand why you singling me out. Do you honestly expect glowing praise for a Microsoft console in this thread?

    I paid £430 for mine with FIFA 14 but the game was added value and not once did I consider I was getting a £390 console.

    As for knowing the PS4 would be better...yes, it was long rumoured that it would be but I never expected the gap between them to be so huge. I had a 360 and PS3 (I still own the latter actually) and shared multiformat games between them despite the 360 having the early advantage. The difference between the 360 and PS3 was nowhere near as big the one between their successors. I paid £350 for my PS4 without any games yet I have no regrets about buying it.

    aside from launch day, where it was basically impossible to play until the afternoon when the login server weren't being hammered like no tomorrow, i agree.

    I had no server issues at launch with either my XBO or PS4 as I downloaded firmware updates and loads of games and patches. I was quite impressed with how issue-free the launch was actually.

    Sorry, just thought it only fair to include the price of Titanfall when talking about Titanfall.

    Was just curious that's all, not really any of my business how you spend your money.

    oh.... right..... England. Yea... i'm pretty sure it was a completely different story here on the eastern US. Picked up my PS4 at a midnight launch, brought it home.... even by 3AM i don't think i was able to successfully activate my PS4 on PSN, and if i was able to, it didn't stay up long. That's when i decided to say hell with it until after i slept.

    Wifi on ps3 is slow as hell as well, like a tenth of the speed last I checked compared to wired (well, whatever your internet speed is).

    Bought a switch to rely less on wireless (only have one cable coming into the room with internet).

    I wish there was a way to see how long I have played a specific game without relying on the developers to include that info in game.
