Official Xbox Magazine UK Mocks PS4 Slogan “Greatness Awaits” After Mixed Reviews

by on November 13, 2013 11:09 AM 210

Looks like the officially endorsed press is joining the console war early, with the Twitter account of UK’s Official Xbox Magazine firing shots on the competition after some mixed reviews that hit the PS4′s launch titles.

OXMUK1

OXMUK2Personally, I feel that at times it is indeed better to resist.

While one can’t expect complete balance from an officially endorsed publication, this seems to me like a way to hurt one’s own credibility.

It would be perfectly fine if this kind of jab came directly from Microsoft, that is actually part of the competition. On the other hand, seeing it come from a press outlet, as specialized on a brand as it can be, makes me wonder about what we can expect from a generation that starts in this overly confrontational way. Someone may have lost sight of the fact that wishing failure on the competition is a pretty silly way to damage yourself.

But as usual, readers are the ones with the ultimate power to judge.

          You mean KACK at 5.9

          • bigevilworldwide

            Better hope Ryse doesn’t get less than that…..Wont be shocked when DR3 and it’s 10fps gets lower LOL enjoy your 720p TV machine

          • aawells07

            Yeah that one lol

      • Jason Mounce

        Remember the original X1 nickname it was given before we knew its real name? Xbox 720….juuuust add a ‘p’ at the end of it and it all makes sense.

    • bigevilworldwide

      I can’t wait till the One80 games get reviewed…I can already see those 6s and 7s for Ryse and 5s and 6s for Dead Rising 3 with it’s 10fps…..Oh wait Xbots are idiots, common sense would dictate you should probably wait till the One80 games get reviewed before trying to run their mouths

      • andy

        Highly unlikely. Did you not see the money that Microsoft put into for the “Marketing” of Xbone? These games are all paid up for decent scores and this magazine knows that.

    • DarthDiggler

      Well if you aren’t satisfied with the games at least the TV is right there. Hmmm maybe Matlock will be more appealing than Dead Rising in 720p. :)

  • Suzaku Kururugi

    Are the reviews for the MS games out? If not, they probably should have waited to cast stones. Tacky regardless.

    • André Rocha

      Exactly! All those glass roofs… oh boy, they’ll spend a lot of time cleaning the mess after the vhs reviews.

  • ragingmerifes

    It wouldn’t be ironic if MS themselves hadn’t made embargos to stop their games from being properly reviewed, or until the check arrives to Polygon.

  • caBooOm

    KZ did well to me

    Destructoid – 9
    Eurogamer – 7
    Polygon – 5
    IGN – 8
    OPM – 8
    CVG – No score
    Game Informer – No score
    GameReactor – 8
    EveryEye.it – 8
    Toronto Sun – 3.5/5
    Kotaku – “No”
    Gamespot – 7
    Gametrailers – 8.8

    • Joseph Lan

      You might as well wipe out the Polygon outlier score (Microsoft-funded website of questionable integrity).

      • Bankai

        Isn’t Polygon the site that gave The Last of Us a 7 or 7.5?

        • Claudio Aguilera

          indeed

          • Bankai

            I frequent their site and they always seemed so smart, but then their review for The Last of Us was published.

          • DarthDiggler

            Agreed, I really enjoy their features, but due to the latest batch of PS4 reviews seeming very slanted. They were extremely nit picky about the UI. They made an issue of the launch titles but didn’t really point out the various titles coming to PS4 at launch. I didn’t see any mention of the free to play games. The article’s conclusion was the WORST. They were implying that they had no idea what is in the future for PS4 saying that Summer / Holiday 2014 doesn’t seem to have many titles coming for PS4. The fact is a simple search of the internet (or Wikipedia) would have revealed well over 120 titles in development for PS4.

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_PlayStation_4_games

            Also the way they were playing up the lack of media options seems to me like they want to dove tail that point with the XBONE.

        • DarthDiggler
        • bigevilworldwide

          The website that received 750,000 from Microsoft also, since then they ALWAYS have lower scores for PS games

      • islan

        I also don’t like the Kotaku review. They pretty say to not play it cuz it has FPS cliches.

    • TristanPR77

      You got to take Polygon and Kotaku out of the list, they don’t count, they are obviously xbox lovers and they have proved with their articles.

      • Suzaku Kururugi

        I can’t say anything on Kotaku being MS shills(though they definitely love their iToys and feminism) but I’d take what they say on reviews with a grain of salt these days. They’re only good for those terrible gaming culture pieces and shilling for their apple products. I’d actually trust Xbox Magazine’s review on a PS4 game more than them.

        Also Rev3 gave KZ:SF a 3/5.

        • foureyes oni

          i swear the reason i stopped going to kotaku was cause of the whole crucifying guys for looking at women thing.

          • HeczTehFinezt

            Wasnt that someone who was reviewing GTA V who said that?

          • foureyes oni

            huh? i was thinking more along the lines of the whole persecution of men during large scale gaming events where they would judge 2 or 3 bad eggs and use them to describe the male side of gaming culture.

          • HeczTehFinezt

            A review from Gamespot?

        • DarthDiggler

          Even though its a similar place on the scale, 3/5 is better than 5/10. Which is one of the reasons I hate the 10 point review scale (it’s meaningless).

    • Bankai

      Joystiq – 3.5/5

      So yeah, Shadow Fall performed as well as I predicted.

    • Woohoo!!

      This was written 5 months ago by the same guy who wrote the Kotaku review:

      http://kotaku.com/there-s-a-small-chance-i-could-care-about-killzone-sha-514132084

      Why would the give the review to someone who has gone on record in the past as not liking the series? They didn’t need to find a fan but they could have at least tried to find someone who was not actively hostile

    • DarthDiggler

      Polygon’s review is beyond the pale. Polygon is off my list. Due to their financing.

      https://twitter.com/aegies/status/250077508177903616

  • DK

    The Playstation 4 has more preorders regardless. The launch games did there job already. In a couple months only Infamous and other games will start to sell consoles as well.

  • André Rocha

    Ohh got to love those with glass roofs throwing stones LOOL lets wait for the xbone reviews and then we’ll see who laughs.

  • Dameon Percival

    Wow, the Sony, defence force is out, come-on you guys been bashing MS for months, as we say in the VI tek yo liks, face it Knack is trash, tell Cerny stick to making great Hardware, and leave the software to the pros.

    • Bankai

      If anything is “trash”, it’s your comment. You overused commas and only used one period when there should be at least 2.

      That said, Knacks only mistake was trying to replicate the old-school platformer feel. Other than that, it’s a very charming and wellmade game. And Cerny is a pro, he’s been making games since he was 17.

      • Dameon Percival

        Not because someone has been doing somthing a long time means they are good at it. They should have made Knack a pack in game like Nintendo did with Nintendo land.

        • DarthDiggler

          @dameon_percival:disqus

          I haven’t played it much, I checked out a demo, thought the enemies were pretty hard for being a kids title. The graphics looked great, rendered full 1080p in 60fps. :)

    • islan

      Is anybody defending Knack? I was kinda expecting it to be mediocre, and I was rather saddened to discover that I was right.

    • You are flat out wrong

      “Leave software to the pros”

      Who would that be then? Crytek? Crapcom Vancouver? lmao.

    • Guest

      The N4G NeoFAG SDF are pathetic little basement dwelling welfare collecting mommy leeches. No need to mourn for them.

    • DarthDiggler

      How much time did you spend with Knack? :)

      Why all the Knack bashing? I mean it’s a kids game. Is Spyro getting this treatment too? :)

      Look not everyone has been bashing MS for months, some of us have just been pointing out where MS fanboys are wrong. That isn’t technically bashing unless you are just being mean spirited about it.

  • Billy Bob

    Their joke will fall flat when no one buys their console… Pre-order figures are looking shameful compared to the PS4.

    • king_of_spades

      This was just a dumbass comment Smh are you ready that stupid to think that? Man I swear ps fans have TINY brains

      • Bankai

        “Man I swear fanboys have TINY brains.”

        Fixed.

      • Billy Bob

        dude. I am privy to pre-order data to a major online retailer. Xbox is performing lower than shameful at the moment…

  • cubs223425

    As an Xbox person, quite tacky. Maybe you should get your console out, updated, and running better than it sounds like it is before you try to dog the competition.

    Dead Rising 3, 720p and dropping under 30 FPS? That’s not a crown you want to wear.

    • Rikus

      Sir, you are truly the definition of a FAN. Not FANBOY

      • cubs223425

        I try to be just that. I’m not consumed by the resolution debate, I know I can’t see the difference. However, when you let your accessory add 25% to the price and take 10% of the GPU, that’s just asking for trouble. I’m wondering if that Kinect/OS optimization will free up enough GPU to help get Dead Rising to a stable 30 FPS (which I’d call passable in such a big, populated world), but until then, I can’t say I’d recommend the game to anyone.

        Microsoft really should have put the bit of extra money into the console for a better GPU, but it’s too late for that. We just have to hope optimization takes hold quickly, but that means you’ll see the 360 and PS3 support die quickly.

        • Bankai

          I can’t see the difference between 30 and 60fps, so I stay away from frame wars. Also, I agree with you about the Kinect I’m still wondering why they won’t take it out to compete with the PS4 in price.

          They’re quick to mention how well the Kinect sold, but now it seems like they’re having to force it on people. If your product is as good as advertised, then it should be capable of selling itself rather than being shoved down people’s throats.

          • foureyes oni

            Honestly i think having the kinect in all xbox one packages is a good thing for xbox1 developers since they all know everyone is gonna have it. Its the price and the fact that its weaker than the PS4 is whats killing the XB1. Why would you pay $100 more for a console thats weaker than its rival just for a gimmick.

          • Bankai

            The thing is that outside of 1-2 things, the PS Camera can do everything the Kinect 2.0 can do.

          • cubs223425

            I thought the Eye doesn’t have an IR blaster. It can’t snap (an OS issue). It can’t control an external device (lack of HDMI-in). All it can do it take basic commands, so it’s not like it only fails at a couple of things, and I don’t think the Eye has the quality of tracking of the Kinect 2, though I might be wrong, as I haven’t seen any comparisons.

          • DarthDiggler

            Well it does have 2 HD optics that should account for something. As of this time Sony really hasn’t dug into what the camera can do beyond the previous one. Maybe they have an ace in the hole or maybe they just wanted to maintain bullet point parity with XBONE.

            If they bring the creature comfort features from Kinect to PS Eye that should suffice. (Commands, Code Reading, Gestures, etc. etc.).

            I think it has 4 microphones too. Not sure whats up with that. Maybe the PS Eye can “hear” your heart beat LOL

          • Corderius Jayell Climpson

            stop lying bro nice try tho.

          • bigevilworldwide

            And it’s only 60 bucks….Lord know how cheap the X1 itself might be without the camera that they keep touting as amazing, surely it costs more than $100 bucks

          • Blaze Blue

            It can not do everything thing that Kinect can do.

          • Ryan Taylor

            Not even close…

          • James Bauer

            But how well can it do them? I’m not trolling, I’m curious. From what I’ve seen, the Kinect is simply a better designed device compared to the PSeye.

          • cubs223425

            It’s good for developers, but it’s bad for people who don’t use it. I’d rather put $60 into an extra game and $25 into a Play & Charge than $100 into a Kinect.

          • foureyes oni

            Thats more Microsofts problem with how they promoted it and current times. Instead of making it seem like an accessory to the console they should have made it seem like it is the console. or they could have sold a miniature kinect device before hand for all these tv applications for the tech crowd and then have been like you know what guys we added this to the xbox one as an extra part of the experience , enjoy.

          • cubs223425

            The “mini Kinect” was the Xbox 360′s one, and it was a pain to put up with. I mean, maybe hey could have gotten just the improved voice recognition, while keeping the inefficient camera, but that just leads to market confusion.

            They tried to sell it as part of the console with the required connection and stuff, but people weren’t having it. There’s no way they could have sold it as part of the console without bothering people. Even if they included it at $400, people would complain they wanted to have it taken out to get the console to $300.

          • Corderius Jayell Climpson

            thats bc your a retarded consumer that doesn’t know any better come to me in two years when kinect matures to be the hit that it is.

          • cubs223425

            “your a retarded consumer”

            Would you like to try again?

          • Ryan Taylor

            Everyone is going to use it who has a box. Its the greatest feature.

          • cubs223425

            Nah, I still haven’t convinced myself to use it if I get the console (which would be in 6-12 months). Dead Rising 3 is the only instance I’ve found where it is cool to me, but it’ll stay unplugged most of the time.

          • Ryan Taylor

            Well thats whats funny… They’ve said that they won’t require it to be plugged in for the system to be on but if you use common sense you’ll understand that 90 percent of things you do on the system won’t work without it hahaha. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that it wont play games unless its plugged in

          • cubs223425

            What are you talking about? I have seen nothing that won’t work without the Kinect, so…I’ll go with “no.”

          • Ryan Taylor

            You’ll see. The only reason they said you could turn it off is to stem the tide back when everyone was pissed. Like I said if you use common sense you will see. Every game you play will include kinect play…this isn’t going to be some simple thing like you lean around corners in cod or bf4…it’s going to turn into games that take advantage of controller and kinect…so first of all games… second yes I’m sure you’ll still be able to snap and search the web and all that stuff but they’re basically banking on the idea that it is going to be so much easier, faster, and cooler to just walk in the room and it load your profile that noone will want to do that.

          • Ryan Taylor

            Guarantee there will be random moments throughout your experience where it will say to continue plug in the kinect.

          • cubs223425

            The problem is, you can’t really sell it that way. They say the Kinect sold well, but what was its killer piece of software? Who says they look back on it fondly? Who knows what they even had expected, as a measuring stick for selling well?

            As much as I don’t really care about the Kinect right now, I understand their intent, and I can accept the premise. The price sucks, but just like Sony was able to survive its high price with the PS3 through Blu-Ray, I think the Xbox One can survive $500 with the Kinect, especially when you consider the bundling of stuff like Fitness.

          • rileycarey

            To answer your question as to why MS chose to bundle the Kinect with the X1, the OS is built from the ground up to utilize the Kinect’s features, the facial log in, voice control, and also to keep a unified install base. If a developer knows that everyone will have a kinect, then they will be more willing to utilize it.

            Think for example a horror game that directly taps to your heartbeat, and knows the perfect time to pop up a scare, or in DR3 where if you have zombies on you and when you actually flail around (which I know i have done) and be able to shake them off.

            Does it suck that it costs an extra $100 over PS4? You bet. Is it worth it? To me, yes.

          • DarthDiggler

            What costs $100 extra on the PS4? The PS4 Camera is only $60.

            In terms of “is it worth it” please point to me the title in the Xbox 360 lineup that was supremely awesome and could not have been created without Kinect?

            I see Kinect as more of an add on thing for core gaming. I don’t see it being used as a feature that you can’t be without.

            I am not saying that i won’t be proven wrong, but we have had 3 – 4 iterations of motion control none of which have produced anything that wasn’t marginally better than a tablet game. I would think after this many years someone would get it right.

          • DarthDiggler

            With engines implementing blurring it is hard to tell with some games, but overall 30fps isn’t a huge hindrance. I can tell 30fps from 60fps, I just don’t care. There is more to a game than the frame rate.

          • The Wolf 47

            If anything, I can really see the difference between the frames per second way before resolution. Trust me, you’ll notice when you get those 20fps dips.

        • DarthDiggler

          It really depends on your TV size but I can tell 720p from 1080p more in my games than I do with HD TV and Movies.

    • Metal

      Unlike ps4 games yea? Killzone dropping to 25 fps on singelplayer, Cod dropping,jumping and taking saltos With the fps.. Knack getting 4/10, 5.8/10, 2.5/5.. and lets not forgett about the Drm , it’s back on ps4

      • cubs223425

        25 > 16 (or 10, as I found out was DR3′s low-point a moment ago). I don’t know what “taking saltos” means for CoD. Reviews aren’t may measuring stick for a game necessarily, and they don’t speak to the power to the machine.

        As for the DRM, how is it “back on PS4?”

        • DarthDiggler

          I be taking saltos like it’s no ones business man! :)

      • nick preveza

        There is no drm thing . Wtf ?

        • bigevilworldwide

          Because in the new TOS is states that you cannot make copies of your discs or digital games and sell them for profit…Retards like Metal are trying to spin it as DRM that never existed to be back…

          • extermin8or2

            The ToS always said this, ptetty sure Ms have sonethingbsimilar in theirs ots to cover your back justbincase They dont enforce it in the same same way here in the uk we have some retarded old laws but ttttheydonmatter as no one enforces them….. but they are still laws.

      • DarthDiggler

        @disqus_VKNarWo957:disqus

        Is Killzone single player 30fps or 60fps? A drop to 25fps on occasion really shouldn’t be that alarming and likely an issue that can be remedied in a patch.

        What DRM is back on PS4? So far all games you buy on disc you can resell, trade or lend out without any sort of Online Pass (as far as I know).

        What universe do you live in sir?

      • You are flat out wrong

        Oh look, another Xdrone liar spreading his crap before the launch.

        You’ll have your “fun” with your cablebox next week, loser.

    • http://www.dualshockers.com/ Dianna Lora

      well said

    • HeczTehFinezt

      You are one of a kind.

    • rileycarey

      I found myself a little disappointed that DR3 was also at 720p and 30 FPS. Honestly though, as long as the game is a fun as it looks I don’t think my eyes will bleed out of my head.

      • DarthDiggler

        LOL I will be looking forward to the Directors Cut when it comes to PS4 (1080p of course)

        HAHAHAHA :)

        • rileycarey

          HA! If there is a multi platform version directors cut of DR3 (Which probably won’t happen) I’ll just get it for my PC! This is a CPU heavy game, and my 4770K blows both the Xbox One and PS4 out of the water.

      • bigevilworldwide

        30….You have read the previews right…The ones where they mention that it drops as low as 16 in some spots

        • rileycarey

          You have to keep in mind that those are beta builds which are often a couple weeks older than the current build. Although I would be disappointed if It can’t keep a steady frame rate.

    • DarthDiggler

      Kudos! I thought some of the reviews were a tad nit-picky about day 1 UI stuff.

    • James Bauer

      DR3 has more to do with the developers than the system itself, same for COD: Ghosts. There are numerous sites posting articles stating how Capcom needed Microsoft’s help with developing DR3.

      That being said, DR3 would not have run at 1080p/60fps on PS4 either. Not unless you made substantial sacrifices, but in that case, the same could be said for X1 – the hardware simply is not powerful enough.

      • cubs223425

        I think it could have hit 60 FPS at 720p, but I’m convinced it was rushed to market as a launch title. I imagine the optimization is pretty crappy, and we can only hope that they’ll have loads of updates to make it better. And I think it’s obvious the PS4 couldn’t pull it off. If the difference between Battlefield on the Xbox and PlayStation is 720p and 900p, I don’t think the PS4 could manage doubling the resolution AND the framerate.

    • Alan Sardon

      its just as tacky to pick on one game that everyone like before a framerate test

      • cubs223425

        I’m not sure I know what you’re saying this is in-reference to. If Sony did this, then the simple response is that just because someone else is being stupid and childish doesn’t mean Microsoft has to.

  • ISISSecretAgent

    Dead Rising 3, 720p@10FPS. Greatness awaits indeed

    • cubs223425

      The low point was actually 16, but the point remains semi-valid.

  • foureyes oni

    well i figured killzone would average a 7-8 with knack averaging a 6-7, and Contrast being niche, so i’m not really disappointed. I am wondering if ryse and dead rising will be just as critically reviewed after all the bad press we’ve seen with them. Although i wouldn’t be surprised if ryse got an average of 8-9 and dead rising 7-8.

  • Bankai

    “Greatness awaits?”

    Hmm, I’m gonna go out on a limb and say they were up all night thinking that one up.

    • islan

      They had to make extra-sure that no one could turn it into a bone-joke.

  • islan

    Like the XB1 ain’t gonna have some turds at launch.

  • Muadiib

    Funny stuff, you butt hurt fanboys need to lighten up.

  • islan

    What mixed reviews? The only mixed review I’m seeing is for Knack. Shadow Fall and Resogun are looking stellar.

    • You are flat out wrong

      Polygon fucked it up a little bit by being Polygon. Other than that, the line-up as a whole is pretty good. Probably better than the PS3s.

      • islan

        I should hope it’s better than the PS3′s, wasn’t that one pretty terrible?

        • You are flat out wrong

          Yeah, and the first year wasn’t much better either.

          Fingers crossed Infamous got the time it deserves.

      • DarthDiggler

        Well one of the things I haven’t seen mentioned is the amount of Multiplatform support PS4 has over XBONE out of the gate. Many games XBONE will be waiting until 2014 for.

  • You are flat out wrong

    Five months of failure and pent-up frustration. It’s like winning a quarter-final. Let them gloat a little bit.

  • Daniel Jassé

    Chill out guys, bloody hell, ps4 guys been trolling all over ms since reveal, we all know both consoles will be great platforms once they out of the gate!

    • KIRBYdaDOG

      the truth is not trolling. Xbox 720p is garbage and is already a failure.

  • Averix

    Just dawned on me, what these comment sections need is not just up and down voting plus the report evilness flag, but a fanboy flag. If a post is an idiot fanboy post, check that flag and the user gets flagged as a fanboy for your account. If you flag someone’s posts a certain number of times, say 10, then all further posts from them won’t be shown to you because they’re likely worthless “fanboy” posts. Official Xbox Mag would get one fanboy flag today…

    • http://www.dualshockers.com/ Dianna Lora

      Hahaha that’s a great idea. :)

    • DarthDiggler

      That really goes against the principles of open discussion though. Also some people consider you a fanboy if you disagree with them.

      • Averix

        Not at all. It’s a filter for you, not for the world. If someone wants to flag you as a fanboy because you disagree with them, great. Shortsighted and stupid, but that’s their prerogative. It allows you to compress your own discussion stream by neutering the people who constantly post argumentative fanboy posts with no value. Basically, allows you to turn down the fanboy noise.

  • KIRBYdaDOG

    Xbox 720p is already a failure and hes butthurt because soon he will be out of a job because there will be no more addbox 720p for him to write about its timed 3rd party exclusives.

      That’s the excuse $0N¥ N4Gtard NeoFAG paupers like you have. YAWN pauper!

    • DarthDiggler

      @KIRBYdaDOG:disqus I am certainly not an XBONE supporter. I think we can have a bit more civility than that. You take a few facts and wrap them up in vitriol. :P

  • Guest

    Because it is completely true and the reviews are proving it

    The $0N¥ PauperStation is for low IQ paupers that love mediocrity

    Metacritic proves it Knack at 59 and KZSF at 73: EPIC FAIL!

    $0N¥ = lies, overhype and underdeliver. TOO BAD PAUPERS!

      yeah, I read that article too. Love how you take that bit out of context. Guess what? The Xbox article will have a similar pic that says. “Not Ever”

  • chitown

    Still won’t make me spend $500 on what should be a $300 console from MS. Sorry.

      We know you paupers can’t afford it. That’s why you all bitch and moan in futility.

  • Faisal Munayam

    driveclub 1080p 30fps
    forza 5 1080p 60fps

    where is the 50% more power sony?

    • Solid Snake

      infamous: 1080p / 60fps
      killzone 1080p / 60fps
      knack 1080p / 30fps
      assassins creed 4 1080p / 30fps
      cod: ghost 1080p / 60fps
      drive club 1080p / 60fps

      i could keep going but there’s to much to list. lol

      • Stereotypical_White_Fella

        Cod Ghosts is native 720p on PS4. If you choose to download the day one patch for the game it makes it kinda 1080p, really it’s just upscaled not native..Activision just confirmed this

        • bigevilworldwide

          Um NO COD Ghosts is NATIVE 1080p It also states it on the box you should learn to read…Aside from the FACT it was confirmed before the game even released…..Jesus you Xbots are stupid, did that crap about activision sound good when you made it up, since they and IW both keep talking about it being native 1080p

          • DarthDiggler

            Yeah but you need that Day One patch! LOL Jesus you have to wait like 2 minutes for that. Who has time for all that? :P As an Xboner I can’t be expected to leave my console to watch TV! :)

      • Faisal Munayam

        driveclub is 1080p 30
        killzone is 1080p 30 with a 24 player ai limit lol so much for epic gameplay but at least the crappy mp is 60
        assassins creed looks like this gen looks like ass creed lol
        knack and infamous suck so who cares… how about resogun thats 1080p 60 looks like an iphone game lol
        bf4 is sub hd on ps4.. im still failing to see the 50℅ difference

        remember esram is harder to deal with if rushed thats why cod & bf4 run at 720p when no utilized i think dr3 was also rushed to be a launch title

        forza is 1080p 60 and devs confirmed they used 100% of xbone

        do your research fanboy besides both consoles are powerful if you want power pc is your answer not a ps4 and pick for features and games preference like dedicated servers.. be smart dont be a retard

        • Stereotypical_White_Fella

          DR3 was actually supposed to be a 360 title then changed last minute to be on Xbox One. So that’s why there are frames issues and low res, they simple didn’t have time. Had they started this game on day one for Xbox One the game would be better.

          • Faisal Munayam

            then it wasnt a very optimized title if it was made for 360.. besides that game has 100s of zombies you’d expect frame rate drops.. look at kz 30fps and only a 24 bot limit

            besides fps drops isn’t gonna stop me getting an awesome game like that… enjoy the iphone looking game resogun its 1080p 60 if specs are all you care about sony fanboys please buy a pc

          • DarthDiggler

            Where do you get the “24 bot” limit Info? Also you do realize that AI on a Killzone game is leagues above AI on most shooters?

            I will take 24 smarter guys than 100s of bullet catchers.

            If you going to make very esoteric claims please add a link and back up that information with a source.

          • thebanditking

            actually the fact it started on 360 should make it easier, since it began on less capable hardware. Look at AC4, 1080p 60FPS on PS4, because its not really pushing the hardware. DR3 runs like crap because X1 is hard to develop for and Capcom Vancouver kind of suck when it comes to programming.

          • DarthDiggler

            Hmmm so the XBONE has trouble running a game designed for the X360? :)

          • Woohoo!!

            framerate issues? On a more powerful machine than it was designed for? I can see there being some texture problems, but the framerate should rock…You’re actually going to buy that ?

        • Solid Snake

          lol im not even going to bother responding to that idiotic post.

          have a nice day…

        • DarthDiggler

          . . . . DEAR XBONERS . . . .

          THE DEBATE ABOUT THE POWER DELTA BETWEEN THE PS4 AND THE XBOX ONE IS OVER. PS4 WON, THERE IS AMPLE DOCUMENTATION ON THE INTERNET ABOUT THIS, THERE IS NO REASON TO REPEAT OURSELVES HERE. TO CONTINUE TO TRY TO QUESTION THIS IS LAUGHABLE. GO READ SOME ARTICLES AND EDUCATE YOURSELF.

          DOES THAT MEAN THAT THE PS4 IS THE GUARANTEED WINNER OF THE NEXT GEN CONSOLE RACE? NO BUT IT CERTAINLY DOES HELP AT THE START ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE A MORE AFFORDABLE PRICE TAG.

          • Faisal Munayam

            i believe you left the no one gives a f*** caps lock comment

        • slasaru

          Infamous is 30fps, they confirmed it yesterday when gave new bullshots with no HUD

        • Josh Morland

          You need to lay off the curry…It’s affecting your thought patterns.

      • Stereotypical_White_Fella

        Infamous, lol. Killzone is getting awful reviews. Knack is terrible. Cod ghosts is native 720p on ps4, need to download the day one patch which makes it upscaled 1080, drive club is 30 fps

        • Solid Snake

          lol who cares about what reviews there getting were talking about power here. and go look it up mate, cod ghost is native 1080p on ps4, not upscaled.

        • thebanditking

          You’re wrong, and that about sums it up. There is no getting around this, the PS4 is the more capable console by a long shot, weather that means better games is debatable but better performance is guaranteed.

        • DarthDiggler

          Stereotypical_White_Fella

          Infamous, lol.

          So far the press has been great about Infamous.

          Killzone is getting awful reviews.

          MetaCritic disagrees with you, the reviews are less than stellar, but not bad for a launch game.

          Knack is terrible.

          Kids game but the reviews have been pretty harsh.

          Cod ghosts is native 720p on ps4, need to download the day one patch which makes it upscaled 1080,

          I am starting to think your name should have been stereotypical dumb fella. :) COD Ghosts is 720p on PS4 for ONLY the single player and the day one patch makes it NATIVE 1080p.

          If you don’t understand the terminology don’t speak up! :)

          drive club is 30 fps

          Drive Club is still in development, Evolution Studios is on record saying they are aiming for 60 fps, but they would settle for 30 fps. That is 100% wait and see.

        • You are flat out wrong

          You mean mixed to positive reviews.

          Looking forward to Xdrones being crushed by the slideshow that is DR3.

      • slasaru

        Infamous 30fps, look yesterdays info with screenshots

    • Ritsujun

      Xbone180′d.

    • bigevilworldwide

      Ryse 900p 30fps
      KI 720p 60fps 6 characters LOL…Even the PS4 port of injustice is 1080p 60fps
      DR3 720p 10-30fps
      Pretty sad that Forza is the ONLY game running at 1080p on the 720p tv machine..

      • Faisal Munayam

        funny how you said 720p machine when you said forza runs at 1080p… you are a special one aren’t you lol

        • DarthDiggler

          @faisalmunayam:disqus

          Are there any other games running at 1080p on XBONE that aren’t small downloadable titles? You do realize racing games are a set up from on-rails games right?

          For the most part XBONE outputs at 720p. No wonder they didn’t use the XBOX 720 name.

      • DarthDiggler

        JUST WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE THE REVIEWS FOR RYSE! :)

    • DarthDiggler

      @faisalmunayam:disqus

      Drive Club won’t be out until next year. Gives them plenty of time to polish.

      Look the power delta between the PS4 and XBONE is well documented. We don’t need to rehash ancient history here. XBONE seems to have made 720p it’s default resolution. Forza stands as one of the only 1080p games for XBONE at the moment.

      Raw power PS4 has it hands down, this is not an item for debate.

    • spideynut71

      That’s what they mean by “Greatness AWAITS”. ;)

    • You are flat out wrong

      Flopza 4.5 looks current gen. Drive Club looks next gen. That’s the difference.

      • spideynut71

        You are flat out STUPID.

    • Josh Morland

      You mean the same Forza 5 that has its car and track count cut in half in comparison to Forza 4? The Forza 5 with prebaked lighting and shadows, and no weather or day/night cycles? Talk about progress!

  • Dennis Crosby

    I think it fun that it’s ok for Sony to mock Microsoft about it resolution but it’s wrong for official Xbox mag to saying something about the PS4 the world is surely a backwards place

    • Josh Morland

      Probably because M$FT and its constituents have no room to talk negatively about PS4 seeing as they have a plethora of issues on their own…By your logic a grossly obese man should poke fun at a moderately obese man and tell him to lose weight.

  • PachterStation

    The amount of trash on the Wii and the crap tech proves that a console can hit 100 million sales…

  • asbofive

    They’d better hope their launch line up is straight from the hand of God or else the internet will come down on them like the hammer of Thor after spouting BS like this.

    • spideynut71

      OXM has a launch lineup ? Do tell….what games will they be releasing, and on what console?

      • Guest

        Looks like you’re angling for the “Runner Up” award :P

      • asbofive

        You know what I meant.

      • asbofive

        Dont be a dumb @$$

        • spideynut71

          Hey, I’m not the one claiming OXM has a launch lineup. Nor am I the moron who posted the exact same response to the exact same comment, twice in 3-1/2 days.

          • asbofive

            Like I said, “Dont be a dumb @$$”
            1st OXM represents the xbone therefore my statement stands, besides you know damn well I was talking about the xbone launch line up.

            2nd where is this magical duplicate response?

          • spideynut71

            1.) No, they don’t, you fvcking retarded monkey. OXM is owned by media conglomerate Future plc… which also owns, among MANY other outlets, Official Nintendo Magazine, and until it was recently discontinued Official PLAYSTATION MAGAZINE. Go ahead and Google OXM and Future plc yourself, “dumbass”.

            2.) LOL…you edited your response from 3 days ago to read “You know what I meant.” There’s no magic needed….just pathetic stupidity on your part.

            Not that it matters, because my above point has officially smacked you in the mouth with an open palm, and left you crying in a puddle of your own blood and snot. Now STFU, and go pick a fight you have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning.

          • asbofive

            You don’t know what the word “Official” means do you?

          • Woohoo!!

            “Like I said, “Dont be a dumb @$$”

            That’s like asking water not to be wet…..

      • asbofive

        Damn, looks like the xbones launch line up is doing worse than the PS4′s! 6′s & 7′s for Rise and DR3. Did I call it or what

  • Ritsujun

    Poor Official Xbosh Mag got Xbone180′d and Xbosh720p’d.

  • thebanditking

    Wow thats tacky…Oh well lets see what they have to say when Xbox 1 comes out next week. I expect Forza to be the best scoring, likely 9′s and 8′s (like Killzone) and expect Dead Rising to get mid range scores in the 7′s, Ryse I feel will end up like Knack and get some decent scores but plenty of 6′s. The third party games already fair worse on X1 so its not like they are going to have much to boast about.

  • Lacarious

    things will get even more heated when xb1 begins to fail

  • Russell Gorall

    That is pretty Major Nelson. They should just let the average reviews at best sink in, and not say a word.

    Yet, in typical Microsoft/Xbox fashion, they can’t pass up comparing their console to PS4. Bad move.

    Knack always looked terrible, and I have been pleading with folks not to pay sixty dollars for it.

    PS Plus is the killer app at launch.

    • spideynut71

      Major Nelson has NOTHING to do with OXM.

      • Woohoo!!

        Yeah, it’s only the Official Xbox Magazine and Major Nelson is only the Official Spokesperson for the Xbox, why would anyone think that they were connected in any way…..crazy talk :p

        • spideynut71

          Congrats….you win the “Idiot of the comment thread” award.

  • Maurice Wilburn

    *shots fired* Probably not the smartest thing to say as it will likely add more fuel to the fanboy wars, at any rate puts the pressure on the Xbox One launch titles to get some good scores.

  • Jason Mounce

    Better than their past slogan:

    since then they switched it to “DRM Will Wait”

    Let them enjoy the fantasy while they can, the proof is in the quality of the games and the quality of the device the games are played on.

  • neomahi-217

    But they’re really super excited that they get to pick their PS4′s up later this month so, its just all in good fun and really, its their job to do that anyway. They’re a Xbox Magazine so they’re obligated to do so, so what can you do, ya know? They’re really just as excited as everyone else but yeah, greatness aways. What was the PS4 Pre-Order to Xbone Pre-Order ratio again? Last I checked it was 150:30 so, Greatness awaits and I think we’re going to see Dev’s on Sony’s platform that will shock us. Epic Games has something up their sleeves, and its not going to stop there. I HONESTLY think that what was once Xbox will now be PlayStation and PS gamers will start to see the benefits Xbox gamers once had. I really do. I think the investment for a PS4 will be greater than the Xbone and on the long run, gamers will see that.

    I’m actually up for getting a Wii U at some point but, Nintendo’s got to show me the software first.

    • Woohoo!!

      I’m probably going to pick up a Wii U around the first of the year, the PS4 purchase and X-mas has me pretty tapped ATM, but I gotta say, Super Mario 3D World looks like it could really turn things around for Nintendo.

  • BillyHoWCR

    “While one can’t expect complete balance from an officially endorsed publication, this seems to me like a way to hurt one’s own credibility.”

    Have you not read any of the Sony ran magazines? It isn’t like they are any more credible with their constant swipes at Xbox One.

    • Woohoo!!

      Yeah, only the hardcore fanboys care about this kind of crap anyway. Articles like that one are just troll bait, a ploy to get comments and clicks…and this is the last call, in a manner of speaking
