Developers Debunk Rumor That PS4 Neo Exists Due To PSVR’s Problems With Regular PS4

2 people viewing this

| By CrAkKedOuT - 12 hours ago

A nasty rumor regarding PlayStation VR was divulged earlier today by IBTimes.

The article reported an anonymous quote taken from the latest Edge Magazine, issue 294. Allegedly, a Chief Technical Officer (CTO) who works in the industry said:

Quote:

PSVR was going to be terrible on a [launch] PS4. It was going to be truly awful. Something a bit more powerful starts to bring VR into range. If you want to deal with crazy requirements for performance in VR, you absolutely have to do this.
This statement spread like wildfire on the Web, until a bunch of game developers (including Just Add Water CEO Stewart Gilray) decided to debunk this on Neogaf.

Quote:

-PSVR is fine on the regular PS4. Obviously things look better on Neo, but considering the performance requirements, the actual experience is largely the same.
Quote:

-Gonna call this bullsh*t.

I have a DVT psvr dev kit sitting right next to me. WeÂ’ve already got our game running smoothly with a few simple optimizations at native 90 fps. Running at 60 requires no changes, but because of the degree of our freedom of movement we settled on 90 for maximum comfort for the user.

If we didnÂ’t have camera movement on multiple axes we couldÂ’ve left it at 60 and been done with it.

Granted, our game isnÂ’t quite the looker like Dark Souls or Uncharted or something, it has fully realized visuals with physics heavy gameplay. It was a bit challenging to track down those elements which tend to hit performance in unpredictable ways in VR, but we are hardly seasoned developers here.
Quote:

-Since weÂ’re doing a launch PS VR title, I can say this is total sh*te! We donÂ’t have a problem running at full speed in our title on a regular PS4.
With E3 2016, we might get an announcement for the rumored PlayStation 4 Neo shortly. Stay tuned on WCCFtech to learn about all the news from the premier gaming convention in Los Angeles, starting from the first press conferences scheduled for June 12.

Sony Confirms No Man's Sky Delay, Will Release August 9 Instead of June 21

3 people viewing this

| By Faythung - 12 hours ago

Quote:

UPDATE: Creator Sean Murray officially announced the delay via the PlayStation blog, writing:


The game really has come together, and itÂ’s such an incredible relief. As we sit an play it now, and as I watch playtesters every day, I can finally let myself get excited. WeÂ’re actually doing this.

However, as we approached our final deadlines, we realized that some key moments needed extra polish to bring them up to our standards. I have had to make the tough choice to delay the game for a few weeks to allow us to deliver something special.

After a short delay, No ManÂ’s Sky will launch in North America on August 9, in Europe August 10, and in the UK August 12.

The original story appears below.


Sony posted a new release date for upcoming sci-fi exploration game No Man's Sky. The new release date, as listed on the PlayStation site, is August 9, 2016.

The post all but confirms the validity of rumors earlier in the week claiming No Man's Sky was being delayed from its initial release date of June 21.

Microsoft’s 4K-ready Xbox “Scorpio” Could Sport AMD’s External GPU, Launching in 2017

2 people viewing this

| By CrAkKedOuT - 16 hours ago

Microsoft is reportedly planning to counter Sony’s Playstation ‘NEO’ with its next generation 4K-ready Xbox, codenamed Scorpio. According to a report from Kotaku, the new Xbox will feature a more powerful GPU that could handle an Oculus Rift, and will release sometime in 2017.

People familiar with Microsoft’s plans told the publication that the new version will have at least 2TB hard drive, and deliver 10 TFLOPS of compute performance, though I/O transfer speed will remain the same which could lead to longer load times for gamers.

Moreover, this Xbox 4K, aka Scorpio, could leverage AMD’s external GPU enclosure, especially since Phil Spencer, the head of Microsoft’s Xbox branch, teased an upgradable hardware for the new console.

When you look at the console space, I believe we will see more hardware innovation in the console space than we’ve ever seen.

You’ll actually see us come out with new hardware capability during a generation allowing the same games to run backward and forward compatible because we have a Universal Windows Application running on top of the Universal Windows Platform that allows us to focus more and more on hardware innovation without invalidating the games that run on that platform.

Sources further believe that Microsoft could follow a PC-like evolution of iterative console releases. Meaning, instead of huge hardware updates every five to seven years, consoles will release every 2-3 years, with full forward and backward compatibility across new versions.

If these rumors are true, we may hear more news on the Xbox “Scorpio” from Microsoft at E3 2016. For now, Redmond is rumored to be planning a smaller and cheaper version of the Xbox One and two new streaming devices at E3.

Like I said in the other thread, don't be surprised to see dual GPU consoles. Thank you AMD for paving the way. #TeamRedYaBish

Image inside PS4 Sales Surpass 40 Million Units

3 people viewing this

| By Pleasure Boy - 16 hours ago



PlayStation 4's sales have now surpassed the 40 million milestone, Sony has announced. The figure represents units sold to consumers globally, as opposed to shipped to retailers.

"We are truly grateful for the enormous support from our fans and partners across the globe, which helped us achieve this significant milestone in such a short span of time,” said PlayStation chief executive Andrew House.

"We will strive to deliver even more exciting gaming experiences to our users, further driving the momentum and accelerating the expansion of the PS4 platform and its business this fiscal year by offering an unparalleled lineup of games, bringing our virtual reality system, PlayStation VR, to market and providing ground-breaking features and network services."

In the 2015 holiday period, Sony sold 5.7 million units of the PS4, bringing its sales tally to 35.9 million units globally by January. This means that, in the five months following, Sony has sold more than five million more consoles.

In a financial report detailed on May 24, Sony forecasted it will 20 million PS4s in its current financial year, which ends on March 31. This would bring global lifetime sales of the PS4 to 60 million.

For comparison, the PlayStation 3 has sold more than 80 million units worldwide as of November 2013, which was seven years after its initial launch. The PS4 is in its third year on sale.

Analysts, meanwhile, have projected the PS4 will go on to sell more than 100 million units worldwide before its lifecycle is over.

In terms of game sales, Sony said "software sales also remain strong, with more than 270 million" titles sold through retail and digital downloads as of May 22.

Reports have indicated an upgraded PS4 might be in the works. This new PS4 is codenamed "Neo" and features upgraded CPU, GPU, and RAM.

Image inside First Xbox One VR Game Coming Next Year - Report

3 people viewing this

| By Pleasure Boy - 19 hours ago



Following reports this week that Microsoft might be working on a new, more powerful and VR-ready Xbox One to launch in 2017, another story has come online to seemingly back that up.

Ars Technica reports that a "major developer" is working on a virtual reality game to launch on Xbox One in 2017. This game will be shown at E3, the report said, though it wasn't mentioned if it would be revealed publicly or behind closed doors only.

It also wasn't explicitly stated that this game was in development for the rumored new Xbox One or if it would also be playable on the existing model, which doesn't currently offer VR support. However, the suggestion is that it would be for the new one.

Here's what Bill Gates, Carlos Slim Helu, Mark Cuban, Donald Trump, and Warren Buffett all have in common.
The name of the developer and game is behind held back for now, but Ars Technica says the company is a "well-known European studio" and the game is "set in the universe of an established, long-running franchise." That leaves open lots of possibilities.

This game, whatever it is, will also launch for PC and PlayStation 4, according to the report. The game has the word "VR" in its working title.

According to Kotaku's report this week, the new Xbox One that Microsoft plans to launch in 2017 is "technically capable of supporting the Oculus Rift." This may have been foreshadowed by the partnership between Microsoft and Oculus, which paved the way for Xbox One controllers to be included with retail bundles of the VR device.

In March 2015, Xbox boss Phil Spencer teased that Microsoft's HoloLens augmented reality device doesn't prevent the company from getting into virtual reality in the future.

Back in 2013, Oculus Rift creator Palmer Luckey said the Xbox One and PS4 are "too limited" in their technical abilities to support his company's headset. Microsoft's reported new Xbox One is apparently four times as powerful as the existing model. Additionally, Sony's rumored PS4 Neo system is also described as being beefier than the current console.

Sony has been more upfront in its plans for VR, as it has confirmed the $400 PlayStation VR headset will launch this October. There will be 50-plus games coming out in the launch window, which runs from launch in October to the end of the year.

A leaked 56-page document from June 2012 suggested Microsoft was planning to offer augmented-reality glasses for the Xbox One. A mock-up of what this could look like was included the document; check out the image above.

Dead Island Definitive Collection Only Includes One Game On PS4 Disc

4 people viewing this

| By dadon85 - 1 day ago









If youÂ’re planning on picking up Dead Island Definitive Edition at retail, depending on which version you get there are different things in the box. One version has all three games on the disc. One only includes one and codes.

On Xbox One, your disc will include Dead Island, Dead Island Riptide, and the bonus Dead Island Retro Revenge brawler. On PlayStation 4, the disc is a little thinner (metaphorically).

That platform only includes Dead Island Definitive Edition on the disc. The other two items are acquired via download using included redemption codes.

If you happen to live in an internet-poor area, this is something to keep in mind.

Real reason for PS4 NEO(most of u guessed it already)

2 people viewing this

| By d4deesnuts - 1 day ago

PLAYSTATION VR WAS 'GOING TO BE TERRIBLE' ON LAUNCH PS4S
Was!


BY WESLEY COPELAND The PS4 Neo was introduced because running VR on original launch PS4 tech was “truly awful,” an anonymous chief technical officer (CTO) has claimed.

"PSVR was going to be terrible on a [launch] PS4,” the source told Edge Magazine. “It was going to be truly awful. Something a bit more powerful starts to bring VR into range. If you want to deal with crazy requirements for performance in VR, you absolutely have to [introduce new hardware]."

For clarity, the above quote says “was.” As in past-tense. It’s possible the source was referencing the state of launch PS4 consoles prior to the introduction of a VR external processing unit, or even launch PS4s prior to Sony unlocking further internal core access.

Discussing the technical side of the PS4 Neo, Sony’s unannounced more powerful PS4 console, the source said "I'm not interested in marketing strategies or adoption rates or whatever. I'm not considering that.

“But as someone who does the technology for video games, somebody doubling my GPU and adding 30% CPU is brilliant. I'd love that every two years. I'd love it every six months, if possible. All I want is the most powerful hardware that I can get my hands on."

While the precise specifications of Sony’s new hardware are yet to be confirmed, the industry currently believes the PS4.5 will feature 8 jaguar cores at 2.1 GHz, an improved AMD GCN, 36 CUs at 911 MHz, 8 GB of GDDR5 memory, and 4K image output. There’s no news of a new Loco Roco yet, though

Imagine a new console every 6 fu*kin months? sh*t better b like $200 a console if they start dishing sh*t out that fast.

The Last Guardian: First hands-on preview reveals new gameplay details and confirms 2016

2 people viewing this

| By Snow - 1 day ago

It has been nearly a year since Sony re-introduced The Last Guardian, Fumito Ueda's long-suffering follow-up to PS2 classics Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. Now, as we approach E3 2016, Edge Magazine has published the first hands-on preview of the game – revealing new gameplay details and confirming that the game will still release this year.

Issue 294's cover story includes impressions from an early portion of the game, an interview with Ueda, and discusses at length the game's star – the enormous feathered, cat-like creature called Trico, that accompanies the player's diminutive protagonist.



Q&A with Ueda, the legendary designer says: "Since this is the year we will see the game's release, I do have some worries, but I'm also very excited."

The preview details a new gameplay mechanic, in which the human boy character wields a mirrored shield. "Holding circle 'illuminates' the device," states the article, "shining what is ostensibly an ornate crosshair onto any surface it's aimed at... [Trico] can fire a devastating beam of red lightning from its tail, and will direct this power wherever we point the mirrored shield."



the demo Edge were shown, this attack was used for environmental puzzles – "one involving the destruction of a rock face, the other the disintegration of a wooden wall" – but Edge wonders whether it will be used against the armoured, enemy characters seen on the extended magazine's cover.

Back to The Last Guardian's biggest star, Trico is "one of the most striking video game presences in recent years," reads the article, but one who may be as "divisive" as Ico's Yorda, who "irritated as many players as she charmed." It is a "free-spirited creature that flagrantly disregards your attempts to tame it" - which prompted a question to Ueda about whether this may annoy players.




"It would be a lie to stay that I have no worries," says the legendary game designer, "but another game where you can completely control a creature wouldn't be enjoyable for me because there are a lot out there where you can do that. I think I've had enough of them."

The article later states that as the game progresses, and Trico and the boy's relationship strengthens, the creature will become more responsive to player requests. It also reveals that Trico's eyes will change colour to reflect its mood: "a pink tinge denotes wariness and anger, for example."



Trico is described as a powerful creature, but one that's timid and nervous in its nature. "One area a little later in the demo sees us emerge high up from the wall of a huge cave that holds an underground lake. We immediately take the opportunity to leap into the clear water below, diving underneath the surface and exploring the muffled underwater world for a time. On resurfacing, we find Trico timidly pawing at the edge of the drop, refusing to jump. It is, after all, part cat."

Ueda says of Trico: "This creature isn't like the cute pets that exist in other games, or an ally that's really useful. The role of the creature is ambiguous; that's something we wanted to express in the game, and it doesn't always do what you ask it to do. That's one of the themes of The Last Guardian. It's something that's difficult, and completely different. I want to create the next thing - an experience that people have never had before.

"The amount of code is very large compared to AI in conventional games. We've given this creature its own desires, so depending on what action it wants to take, that affects everything, including its animation. It's not like a normal humanoid character."

The Last Guardian has been in the works for over eight years, spending most of that in the ether of uncertainty. Until it's re-introduction at E3 2015, many assumed the game was dead in the water. Asked about this, Ueda told Edge: "It was quite difficult for me to keep my motivation up. But my other games have also had long development periods, so in that sense, I think I've been able to keep my motivation quite high."

The brilliant full feature also includes discussion of the game's hand drawn animations for both Trico and the boy. The magazine is in UK stores now.

Quote:

In the ruins of the fallen Adal Empire, you awaken with a mysterious mask on your face, and faint recollections of an esoteric ceremony. Freeing you from hunger, thirst, and even death, the mask is the creation of the Guides, the rulers of these lands, who have placed you here to determine whether you are worthy of becoming part of the elite corps of Absolvers. As you wander these forsaken lands, encountering other Prospects like you, you will learn new combat styles, acquire weapons, gear and armor, and build a team of warriors with whom to fight side by side in Arenas of combat.

Fluid Real-Time Combat: Position yourself in one of four tactical stances during real-time battles and execute devastating attacks, dodges, and parries. Movement becomes your weapon as you engage in solo duels or intense three-on-three melees battles.

Customizable Style and Flow: Players will define their characterÂ’s playstyle by picking a combat style, a weapon of choice, and arranging attacks in their Combat Deck to design their unique and personal attack flow.

Online Multiplayer Action and Narrative: Prospects and Absolvers will seamlessly encounter others in the world, generating unique stories that emerge through player interaction and choices. These moments are filled with tension as intentions to battle, trade, or befriend are never clear: trust is always a leap of faith. Encounters will have lasting consequences and transform into meaningful relationships as you make friends or enemies and find mentors or disciples.

PvP and PvE: Explore a rich and dynamic world including dedicated PvP battle arenas where champions will receive spoils of victory and progress in the ranks of the Absolvers, and PvE dungeons in which players cooperatively battle to retrieve rare loot and equipment from the depth of the Adal mines.

Man this brought back memories when I was a wee one me and my older brother would take turns playing Super Mario World and I would play as Luigi. But whenever we got to the castles or ghost houses I would skip my turn because I was scared.

Super Street Fighter II, I'd try to cheese with Dhalsim and still lose. We would speed run career mode in THPS2, always picking Kareem Campbell.

Local co-op was the best part about playing games growing up, it's sad that as a game mode it's slowly dying.

Article inside Sony expects to sell 20 million playstation 4s in the next year

3 people viewing this

| By Tiko377 - 2 days ago

Sony has predicted that it will sell 20 million PlayStation 4 units by the end of the current financial year.

That number - revealed in a Sony earnings forecast released today - would bring the total number sold to an estimated 60 million units by March 31, 2017.

"We expect FY16 sales to increase 8%," said Sony CFO Kenichiro Yoshida, "and operating income to be 135 billion yen [around $1.2 billion] due to the continued strong momentum of PlayStation 4."

Sony's biggest year for home console sales came in the financial year ending 2003, in which it sold 22.5 million PS2 units.

Sony recently announced that it had sold 18 million PS4s in the last financial year. By comparison, recent estimates put Xbox One sales at 18 million units, lifetime.

Part of the reason for that huge prediction could be existing owners doubling up and buying the rumoured PS4 upgrade, codenamed NEO.

2017 Xbox Will Be Significantly More Powerful than PS4.5

2 people viewing this

| By Hovi Bryant - 2 days ago

Quote:

The Xbox One is believed to operate a peak target of 1.32 teraflops, compared to the 1.84 teraflop performance numbers attributed to the PS4. Meanwhile, per documents secured by Giant Bomb's Austin Walker — and corroborated by our sources — the PlayStation 4 "Neo," at approximately 2.25 times more powerful than the PS4, is likely to have a peak performance number of 4.14 teraflops.

The current performance target for Microsoft's Scorpio is approximately 6 teraflops.

This would put the Xbox on par with a Titan X in terms of raw performance.

Haven't seen a console be somewhat on par with high end retail cards since the launch of the 360. That sh*t was smoking my 7600 back in the day.
