GameStop Hosting Xbox One Weekend: Pushing Microsoft’s Console Hard With Discounts and Deals

by on June 25, 2014 1:51 PM 301

GameStop just sent in a press release announcing a new Xbox One event to be held this weekend. The retailer will offer multiple discounts and deals on Xbox One accessories and softwareon June 27th and 28th across to all its US stores.

On top of the usual 50% bonus trade-in credit for the purchase of a new Xbox One, customers that will purchase one will also be able to benefit from a $20 discount on a on a 12 month subscription to Xbox Live gold and $10 off an additional controller.

Further deals include

  • Save $30 on a Turtle Beach Ear Force X07 Headset ($129.99) Reg- $159.99
  • Save $20 on Wolfenstein: The New Order, NBA 2K14, Zumba Fitness World Party
  • Save $10 on Murdered Soul Suspecct
  • Save $10 on Charge Station for Xbox One controllers
  • Save $20 on an Amazon Kindle Fire HD ($119.99) Reg- $139.99

I’m not sure what the Kindle Fire has to do with Xbox One, but it’s indeed part of the event.

This is the third event pushing Xbox One announced this month after the Xbox One Day on the launch of the Kinect-less SKU and the #XBLGoldMine  contest currently being held on social media platforms. It’s doubtless that the retailer and Microsoft have a solid partnership. GameStop has often pushed Xbox consoles in the past, but now they’re really going all out.

Below you can check out the flyers of the new event.

    guess removing the kinect wasn’t enough to push sales
    who would’ve thought *whistles*

    • superkarma

      3 events in 2 weeks since the bundle went to market? It certainly doesn’t appear to be doing so hot. I guess we’ll know for sure once the NPD’s come out.

        MS is probably paying them well. Ever since Xbox One launched it’s had prime storefront space, tons of banners and standups, demo stations up front, exclusive trade-in deals towards Xbox One, etc. They’ve done practically everything they can except stop selling PS4s entirely.

        Not to mention MS has spent far more money on marketing and advertising Xbox One, Titanfall, etc.

        • Porcu Peth

          meanwhile Sony is giving money to indies that actually need that money and bring us wonderful experiences!

          on the other hand MS is bribing retailers, certain media outlets that shall go unnamed… and dummy youtube accounts!

          • Guest

            Dummy youtubers? I don’t think crapgamer gets paid.

          • Xtremer_Derp

            Neither do you, derp.

          • Dennis Crosby

            No Sony isn’t giving Indies money. Sony is paying indie developer for the exclusive and time exclusive games to make it seem like Microsoft doesn’t care about Indies. That why alot of people don’t like the parity clause because if they take the money its a chance that they might not be able to release on the Xbox console. SONY has a pub fund of $25M to make it happen

          • Guest

            Uh no, games aren’t showing up on Xbox One because of MS’s restrictive anti-indie policies that they only recently 180′ed on with the id@xbox program.

            That’s why games like MotoGP, Bound by Flame, Transistor, etc. are on PS4 but not Xbox One.

          • Dennis Crosby

            The parity claus is the only anti thing about the ID@Xbox program

          • Grant A

            Paying someone would qualify as giving them money, and if microsoft did care about indies the parity clause would be gone. You can’t approach every little indie dev with the all or nothing approach when there is a large player community and better support on the rival console.

            This is microsoft trying to win with their pocket book instead of their brains.

      • theundertow

        Best Buy is also pushing Xbox One hard of late and in their weekly deals.

    • True_Fan

      Lol are you really jealous MSFT and gamestop partner up from time to time.

      • WingsOfChicken

        Lol are you really mad MSFT can only push sales with gamestops help. The little sales they can push.

      • sync90

        Change the n to a g.

        No, he just finds it sad.

      • Guest

        Storing hundreds of thousands of unsold Xbox Ones in warehouses isn’t cheap.

      • Agrippa

        You’d think its a crime for a business to push its product. Fan boy comments I’ll never understand.

    • toasty

      Its going to be tough for MS, because at this point in the game the PS4 has a commanding lead over the XO. A lot of the people who have friends that own a PS4 will more likely get a PS4 themselves so that they can continue play online together, and others will still get the PS4 because it is the more powerful system that carries many of the same games the XO has or will have.

      • Guest

        They’ll never run out of straws to grasp at, trust me. They just keep grasping, failing, then ignoring the mountain of crow they’ve built up.

      • Xtremer_Derp

        Nah. They will get a PC after seeing how cheap games get and how monumentally more powerful PC is.

        • toasty

          I doubt it for a couple of reasons, first, the vast majority of people who gamed exclusively on consoles last gen are not going to want to invest the extra money in a sufficiently powerful PC that would make multiplatform games look noticeably better than on a PS4.
          Second, building a gaming desktop PC, though not difficult, would be seen as a headache that most of those console exclusive gamers from last gen are probably not going to want to tackle. Third reason is big titles like GTA V taking a year after original release to come to PC, or Destiny only launching on PS4/XO, among others that get a lot of attention at E3 but never get pushed as a PC release. There are other reason, but those were right off the top of my head.

          Can the moderators please ban this mustard peasant troll again. It’s been banned multiple times on dualshockers, gamingbolt, cinemablend, onlysp, gamepur, and pretty much everywhere on disqus. All it does is spread lies and hate about consoles and PS4 especially..

    • doplerradar

      Stop trolling

    • Guest

      Bu bu bu May sales were just low because they were holding out for the $400 SKU! Tidal wave of $400 SKU sales incoming this month!

      Sad to see another hefty round of crow served up to the fanboys who thought the $400 SKU would do anything significant.

  • Xavier Nowell

    I need the system I bought to sell better than the competition because that really matters in life! How can I feel secure with myself if the system I bought doesn’t sell more than the other consoles. I’m gonna bash anything that’s not the system I purchased because people can’t have different preferences then me.

    • sync90

      Not if there preference sucks ass!

      • doplerradar

        We all have our own opinion. We don’t need to make ourselves feel better by bashing other people’s console of choice. Both Wii U, PS4, and Xbox One are good consoles.

        • sync90

          X1 is garbage!

          • doplerradar

            Based on your history I will take that for a grain of salt. I bet you haven’t even played on one.

          • sync90

            That the best you can come up with? I have, and it was garbage. The UI is beyond crap!

          • doplerradar

            The UI works well for me, especially with all the monthly updates that dramatically improved it.

          • Guest

            Xbox has some good exclusive games. It’s just not selling as well.

          • Xtremer_Derp

            LOL this is allowed, apparently.

            Dualshockers mods explain your shit.

    • doplerradar

      Fanboy logic 101

  • CervantesPR

    there is such a retailer xbox bias in the USA despite the PS4 outselling the xbox one, gamestop and walmart give xbox the first shelf space to xbox one, its literally the first console that you see when entering gamestops and walmarts despite the low xbox one sales.

    • Geoffrey Davey

      I’ve also found this to be true… anyone care to speculate on why?

      • Guest

        MS paying retailers for premium placement. Nothing wrong with it, it’s just business.

        • Xtremer_Derp

          Just like Sony losing money is and Valve making money hand over fist is.

          • Guest

            Big surprise, another worthless troll that needs a ban.

          • Xtremer_Derp

            Big Surprise. Derp is hiding behind a guest account.

          You really think they pay? I’d be kinda surprised if that were true. Then again, corporate shenanigans…

          • Guest

            It’s almost all money when it comes to corps.

    • Jorge Jimenez

      There’s no bias, Microsoft simply has tons of advertising dollars to spend on promotional or Retailer-specific events. Retailers don’t pick sides, that’s silly. Best Buy will have kiosks with Smash Bros. on the WiiU available to play. Best Buy isn’t doing this out of the kindness of their hearts, they are doing it because Nintendo paid them for the space. Things like where games are placed or marketing signage are scheduled and paid for months in advance. If the Xbox One were outselling the PS4, chances are this event would still happen. Some companies choose to spend their marketing budget on retailer partnerships or random community events while others prefer an all out media blitz (commercials, billboards, website ads, etc). Whatever works for them.

      • Grant A

        Aside from things that are money related, I have noticed that on average most gamestop employees opinions are that the xbox one is better, which is strange, maybe its just the midwest, but I don’t remember such a public bias at gamestop last gen.

        • Ani X

          In their honest opinion or the kind of opinion $$$ can buy? ;-)

          • Jorge Jimenez

            It could be a regional thing, the Gamestops by me (NYC/NJ) say great things about the PS4. Most Game Advisers (person who forces pre-orders and magazines down your throat) make minimum wage so its not like they are getting a taste of the action.

  • bob

    I wouldn’t call this “going all out”, most of those prices are msrp, if they were all $20 cheaper, that’d be awesome.

    • Geoffrey Davey

      Yeah, it seems like the only ‘Event’ is them slutting for MS once again. You’d think a retailer wouldn’t care which console they’re selling, but Gamestop seems determined to back the XB1.

      (no beef with the XB1, fanboys… just calling it like I see it.)

      • Guest

        MS is paying them well I’m sure.

  • sync90

    More desperation. LMAO Who in the hell would buy a console that can’t even run Halo 2 in 1080p. Remaster or not, thats a joke.

    • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

      They can do 1080p on Halo 2 fine, it’s the instantaneous switch b/w old and new versions that they’re optimizing on. In other words they’re rendering two 1080p images at the same time every frame vs the pause that was in Halo: CE Anniversary…

      • sync90
        • doplerradar

          I suggest you actually read it.

          • sync90

            I suggest you stop crying on DS all the time. It says in black n white ‘There’s a chance that H2 Anniversary campaign could run at a different
            resolution to accommodate the second frame buffer. But the intent is to
            overcome that hurdle.’

            Why can’t it render a 10yr old game twice straight off the bat?

          • doplerradar

            And I suggest you stop trolling and have a mature discussion.

          • sync90

            Your on DS every day championing the X1. And crying like a little baby! Why in the hell would i want to discuss anything with you?

            Now go CRY somewhere else.

          • Guest

            The GPU is capable of rendering it, but the 32MB ESRAM is a size bottleneck to the framebuffer(s).

            They could try to work around it by putting some of the framebuffer in DDR3 RAM, but things get complicated and there are drawbacks to that method.

        • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

          Dude, that’s exactly what I just said. The second frame buffer is what allows the instantaneous switching between the old and new version. In Halo: CE Anniversary there was a pause b/w the switch, now they’re aiming for instantaneous so they’re aiming at rendering two 1080p images at once at 60fps which means 120 frames per second…

          • Grant A

            You are delusional, so much of that information is just being stagnated for another frame that even if what you’re saying is true it would be no where close to the same as it is to process real 120 fps.

          • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

            It’s obvious you know nothing about technology…

          • Grant A

            I will hold my tongue once I see a real AAA title running at 120 fps on the xbox one, until then I suggest you realize that rendering the exact same thing twice is nothing like running the more advanced render twice as fast.

          • Grant A

            And what do you know, little Jeremiah likes to call foul until he is faced with facts, learn to use your brain, xbot.

          • Dan

            What facts? That the upgraded visuals on the X1 are running at 1080/60, and the lesser version isn’t. That’s fact. It has nothing to do with the X1 not being able to run it, its the fact that its a 10 year old engine.

          • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

            I call it a Computer Science degree, a Master’s in Business and over 15 years working in the technology industry.

            As for facts, let’s see if your brain can comprehend this. Exclude the frame buffers talk and make it simple and logical. Halo 2 Anniversary has two engines – that’s right two. One of them is the original engine modified to run at 60fps and a higher resolution and the other one is a newer engine with updated graphics also running at 60fps and a higher resolution. Halo 2 Anniversary also supports instantaneous switching between both engines in real-time. No pausing, which was what they did in Halo: CE Anniversary. That means, if you do the math, it’s rendering 120 frames every second even if it’s only showing one engine on screen at a time. This isn’t rocket science, it’s basic arithmetic. If you can’t even handle basic math there then you also probably don’t think it’s odd why they only call out Halo 2 when Halo CE Anniversary, Halo 3 and Halo 4 all run at 1080p 60fps with no issues. The reason is b/c of the instantaneous switching between both engines they are aiming for.

          • Grant A

            So each engine is rendering all its own assets the entire time, so when you switch, the enemy’s will be acting like the old AI on the old engine, but will be doing more advanced stuff on the HD version, because the xbox is fully rendering all aspects of both engines at 60fps. I guess you were right, unless thats not how it works, in which case you’re comparing apples and oranges.

          • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

            Wrong again, the AI and data sets within the game are the same but the rendering engines/assets/textures/etc are separate. Have you even seen the video on display of Halo 2 Anniversary Gameplay? It shows, just like on Halo CE: Anniversary, that as enemies attack on screen they can switch between the old engine and the new engine in real time. The enemies behavior doesn’t change, just how they display on screen. That’s what 343 called the “anniversary” treatment. I don’t come up with the marketing phrases, they don’t work for me personally, but that’s beside the point. What’s important is it’s technically rendering 120 frames per second. If they’re doing that at 1080p all the more impressive, but I’m not going to complain if Halo 2 is a little less. It’s not because of lack of horsepower, but because they are effectively doubling the amount of things to render each second in real time.

          • Giuseppe Nelva

            To be honest, you’re stating a whole lot of personal speculation as facts, mate :D

          • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

            No, it’s understanding what’s going on underneath the hood partially. It’s the same type of process whether it’s a game or an application sharing the data infrastructure. They’ve confirmed 60fps. That’s not speculation, the resolution is. If they’re under 1080p like I said running two engines at once, it’s not b/c of lack of horsepower but b/c they’re rendering twice as much content. They’ve also said Halo 1, 3, and 4 run at 1080p and 60fps fine so why would Halo 2 have any problems? This isn’t speculation, it’s logic.

          • Grant A

            The only one acting like a visual downgrade to run two versions of a game is bad is you. I don’t own an Xbone, but this collection is making me reconsider that, and if I have to play Halo 2 in 900p to experience both halves of the experience so be it, I would be fine with that. But I’m not going to go out and say that the dual rendering they are doing is comparable to 120fps, because it isn’t.

          • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

            Again, there’s a –difference– between *rendering* 120 frames per second and *displaying* 120 frames per second, and again, I wasn’t saying it’s bad for me, I was simply saying it’s incorrect to say it can’t do it because of lack horsepower.

          • Grant A

            What will be done with the Halo 2 portion could more correctly be thought of as both maps running next to each other one high rez, the other emulation. They are independence processes, but both operate with the same data in the same 60 fps. So its more comparable to running the game twice than it is to say the xbox is hitting 120fps internally.

          • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

            Read the last post I just made above. And emulation is the wrong term, but running both visual engines and rendering all content twice concurrently is correct even though they only show one engine at a time. But what they’re trying to do is give the player the capability to switch between both engines any time in real time which means they’re rendering all the content twice.

          • Grant A

            Kind of a one pony emulator, but I get what you’re saying, and by all means I agree with the experience that Msoft is trying to provide.

          • Giuseppe Nelva

            The speculative part which you’re stating at fact is that the game would be rendered at 120 frames per second in order to run both engines at the same time, which is absolutely unnecessary to be able to switch on the fly between them. There are a million of possible technical solutions to that problem, and I seriously doubt that the one that effectively *wastes* resources is the one adopted by 343i.

          • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

            No, read the thread between Grant and I. There’s a difference between *rendering* and *displaying* 120fps. Rendering is all the calculations/lighting/shadows etc in the pipeline they do to make an image/frame. Usually, for most games rendering and displaying are one and the same but since Halo 2 Anniversary is running two engines at once – original and updated at 60fps each they are essentially calculating 120frames each second (60 for each engine) b/c they’re trying to have a seamless-realtime switch b/w both engines in the middle of gameplay w/o any pausing.

          • Grant A

            I still think comparing it to running the simulated game enviornments right next to each other makes more sense and carries more accuracy as to how the system will show images and preform with the dual engine system.

          • Grant A

            Please read what I said, it seems you are mistaking my sarcasm as a real opinion. Since not all parts of this game are being rendered twice, only what is visually presented, I will state again, this is still not comparable to a game that is actually rendering everything in one engine at 120fps.

          • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

            There’s also a difference between **displaying** 120fps which is what you’re referring to and **rendering** (all the 3d calculations/shadows/lighting/etc) 120fps which is what the game is doing.

          • Grant A

            But half of those frames are only 1080p with super basic xbox graphics. So its more comparable to a game running at 80fps or so.

          • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

            No, none of us knows if Halo 2 will be 1080p on campaign. It is 1080p 60fps in multiplayer – that’s been confirmed, but campaign might be less, or it could be on target. My point was it’s not correct to simply say the console is underpowered for a 10 year old game when it’s rendering twice as much content each frame b/c of both engines, possibly at a lower resolution.

          • sync90

            Thats what i said, and you disagreed with me.

          • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

            No I disagreed with you b/c you said: “More desperation. LMAO Who in the hell would buy a console that can’t even run Halo 2 in 1080p. Remaster or not, thats a joke.”

            If you reread the thread b/w Grant and I, I explain how it’s rendering twice as much content which is essentially rendering twice the polygon count and 120 frames per second with 60 for each engine. Halo CE Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4 all run at 1080p/60fps so doesn’t it strike you as weird why they’re still optimizing Halo 2? B/C of both engines which they are still clearly optimizing…

          • Grant A

            Right… but you can’t compare it to 120fps for the same reasons… apples and oranges.

          • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

            The rendering process you can, but not the display frequency. There’s a difference between rendering and the frequency at which it displays the content on screen. Usually in most games they are the same, it renders at a certain resolution at a certain frequency, but in this case there are two engines doubling the resolution and frames created even though it only shows 60fps b/c only one engine is shown onscreen at once.

          • Grant A

            Alright, the display frequency is how most people are going to read that 120fps, and I’m tired of dealing with people talking about hidden chips, dx 12, and the untouched magical power of the xbox. Rendering is simplified for half of the render in the 120fps operating speed, but I guess it would technically be operating internally that fast.

          • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

            I try not to deal with b.s. – no hidden chip talk or dx 12 (which will definitely improve threading on the primary cpu but not a big boost otherwise imo). Cloud is still a factor though b/c it’s essentially distributed computing, whether people believe it or not – just a matter of showcasing a game that can actually utilize it effectively which is what Crackdown will be hopefully.

            And yeah, b/c one of the engines is essentially a modified version of the old Halo 2 engine, so of course the workload would be less. But it’s still rendering twice as much content. Here, if you haven’t seen this it shows how the AI is separate from the graphics being displayed in real time switching of the engine — http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6m21KxWWpRU

          • Grant A

            I have seen it, thanks though, the server side compute power is a super interesting prospect in the cloud, and I hope some cross plat games will realize the immense value this living world for everyone could produce. I know that microsoft has spent millions on azure, but its not so advanced that we couldn’t see EA try something similar to what crackdown teased at E3 in an upcoming Battlefield game.

          • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

            Yeah, building up the server infrastructure is what’s going to kill other companies though, which is why it will be interesting to see how MS and Sony games diverge this generation if more games start using the cloud…

          • Grant A

            I think games ten years from now are were we will see the really advanced stuff, but for now I think EA, ubisoft, activision, bungie, square, and rockstar could feasibly have something that would function similar to the cloud on xbox, but running on ps4 and xbox one. It only makes sense for competition.

          • Guest

            Great lot of help that degree did you. Why in the world would they run two separate game engines instead of rendering the same scene twice off the same engine?

            It’s an ESRAM size issue. Like it or not 32MB is tough to cram that much framebuffer into.

            Then again you probably think Xbox is secretly as or more powerful than PS4, so I’m not surprised.

          • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

            It’s not just an ESRAM issue. Everybody wants to blame the ESRAM instead of using it for priority tasks instead of the whole frame. Check this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtLBGdykQPU and you can see how the difference in engines is very noticeable. It’s what they call the “anniversary” treatment. Their marketing lingo, not mine.

          • doplerradar

            Stop trolling. There is nothing he said that suggested he thinks that. We get it the PS4 is more powerful. It doesn’t need to be said 10 million times. Almost nobody is arguing that.

          • Grant A

            I don’t think thats trolling, being negative towards someones comments yes, but honestly his first point is a good one, why does microsoft think they can’t get the game to run the same as it did on the old engine on a new engine. It would benefit them more to have the same engine handling everything, to atleast streamline development.

            Derp thinks the PS4 is really a supercharged PC.

            He’s an idiot.

          • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

            Have you even seen the whole promo behind the “Anniversary” editions? That’s the whole gimmick – you can switch between the original engine at a higher resolution and an updated one with better textures, lighting etc.

            You can argue it’s the ESRAM all day long simply b/c that’s what you’ve read but as more games come out on XB1 at 1080p or at parity with PS4 that argument is going to die real fast. Already Sniper Elite 3 is coming out at 1080p for both after they worked with MSFT to better understand how to utilize the hardware…

          • sync90

            Dude, its states clearly. The resolution could be different. How hard is that to understand? What im saying is, why can’t it just run it straight without lowering the rez?

            We all know why…….

      • Grant A

        Yeah, except one of those rendered images is from a ten year old game, I’m pretty sure with optimization my phone could run Halo 2 in 1080p too lol.

        • Dan

          It has nothing to do with how old it is, it has to do with the process. Fools the lot of you

          • sync90

            What process expert? Explain.

          • sync90

            I asked what process????? FOS!

          • Grant A

            Would that be the process of rendering two game engines at the same time? Or emulating the xbox in the xbone? I’m just saying that what is being rendered isn’t all that complicated, the impressive part is the multitasking.

      • Guest

        It’s an ESRAM size issue. Like it or not 32MB is tough to cram that much framebuffer into.

      • Ani X

        Are they really rendering two completely different frames where half of them is dumped unseen? Why would someone do such a stupid thing. probably this is just marketing BS

        • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

          I believe so. It’s the whole “anniversary” treatment/polish. They do it so people can switch instantaneously b/w both engines in real-time while playing the game. Personally I’d be happy with 1080p with an updated engine, but people apparently loved the switching back and forth in Halo: CE Anniversary so they kept it for Halo 2 Anniversary…

          • Ani X

            At 60 FPS and even at 30 FPS a user would perceive switching between versions as “instantaneously”. User push button at frame X Engine A stops rendering frame X+1 and the other engine continues rendering the frame X+1 and the following that are pushed out. 1/30 of a second is more than “instantaneously” to toggle between frames, more so with 1/60 of a second. Even rendering both frames at the same time wouldn’t be faster, because there the frames are shown in sequence and only one version at the same time.

            Considering the hardware restrictions on XBox One, rendering either 50% of frames just for nobody to ever see them would be plain stupid. If 343 claim they do, they are either plain stupid or lying people straight into the face.

          • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

            They said both engines were running simultaneously. To me that states they are rendering both even if only one engine is seen at a time. That’s the whole point of the “anniversary” treatment – you can see what it looks like before vs now in real-time. I don’t see it as a lack of power, considering they are able to run Halo CE: Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4 all at 1080p 60fps. It’s just Halo 2 where they said they are still optimizing. Giuseppe had the same thought though. But imho the only way to do true instantaneous switching would be to render both at the same time. To do one only after pressing a switch button would be like Halo CE Anniversary where there was a slight pause between versions…

          • http://www.thealephnullsaga.com/ Jeremiah Locanas

            Here – this is the article that started it all. Why would they have a 2nd frame buffer if they weren’t rendering both engines at the same time?

            http://n4g.com/news/1538147/halo-2-campaign-in-master-chief-collection-might-not-be-1080p

    • doplerradar

      Halo 2 has been confirmed to run at 1080p at 60 fps

      • sync90

        Only the MP. There having trouble in single player. A 10yr old game ffs!

        • doplerradar

          They said the only problem the face is running 2 engines at once (you can switch between the original and remastered at any time instantly). That doesn’t mean it won’t be 1080p at launch.

          • sync90

            Its 10 years old you numpty!

          • Dan

            Your 100% right, but clearly these people don’t know how to read, at least not well.

    • Dan

      You don’t really care how accurate what you say is do you? That sounds like desperation to me. Desperation to come up with reasons to hate the X1. Don’t buy one then. Ever. Ill be playing Halo at 1080p and you can play….umm….indies. Enjoy!

      • sync90

        Desperation to hate the X1? Hilarious, because theres alot more than one reason to not like it. It constantly falls short, and is a poorly conceived piece of crap.

        Why does me not liking the X1 bother you so much?

        • Dan

          It doesn’t keep hating. I’ve realized you’re just a hater. And not a true gamer.

            I’m kinda curious what would happen to the franchises direction if the game is a hit and the show is a flop. What they’ve shown of the game looks incredible, but the show sounds like a pile of crap.

          • doplerradar

            To be fair they showed almost nothing of the show. We have seen more gameplay (which is very little) than the show itself. From what I heard it will be on disk with the game. I guess we will find out more in August.

          • sync90

            Then what? 2015 for the ps4 is going to crush the X1.

          • Guest

            Both PS4 and Xbox have good exclusive games, but it’s pretty obvious which will sell more. You don’t need to talk down Xbox games.

          • doplerradar

            Both consoles are coming with their strong exclusives. Xbox is coming with several strong exclusives. Also do not underestimate Halo. The game is their biggest gun in their arsenal. It rivals the biggest exclusives in the industry. The Master Chief Collection will build momentum and hype for Halo 5 by bringing fan service and the beta.

          • sync90

            Halo 5 will push X1 sales, no doubt about it. But Halo 4 was shit, not like a Halo game at all imo. So we’ll have to see what 343 put out.

            Plus, i just think PS4 exclusives are way better. Uncharted 4 is gunna shift the post so far ahead, the X1 is gunna be left in its wake. Hopefully it will be the last console MS make. Xbox division 3 billion in the red and counting.

          • Xtremer_Derp

            Uncharted 4 will be downgraded and you don’t understand finances at all when it’s been documented in actual books that the Xbox original (Which where the loss emanated from) was a planned write down and the main investments like the servers made their money back. Kinda hilarious when people protest that Sony isn’t going out of business but a planned loss leading product to enter the market is absolutely guaranteed to put someone out of the market. Oh console kids.

            Not that there will be another Xbox anyway since PC will win the generation and take over the market.

          • sync90

            PC will never take over the market. Sony has the best dev’s in the industry, ones that will never make a game for pc. All the different specs they have to scale to is off putting and expensive for most dev teams.

            Just look at GTA5. PC owners have been crying about it for months. Consoles will always get the better games

          • Xtremer_Derp

            Sure. DriveDud, Infamous: Gamestop Used Games rack edition, Killzone 960i, cack, The Order: 800P, Uncharted CGI Trailer, The Last Guardian: Talent left Team ICO version and more.

            PC is getting the true 1080P 60FPS version of GTA V which will have mod support and be infinitely re playable.

            PS4 will probably struggle to get to 1080P and choke on itself trying to run at 30FPS

            PC has the most market share across the world in gaming. You seem upset that PC will be the dominant force in gaming by the end of the generation.

          • sync90

            Uncharted wasn’t cgi, google it. That list is still better than the pc’s line up for the next few months. Tell me what exclusives the pc has coming out. GTA5 has been confirmed 1080p 60fps on ps4.

            Most pc gamers have mid level rigs, only 5-10% have high end.

          • Xtremer_Derp

            Every Uncharted demo at E3 has been a bullshot demo using CGI. 4 was no different and managed to look worse than Crysis 3.

            Also mid-Level = More powerful on PS4 and Rockstar only confirmed the PC version was customiseable rez/FPS. Nothing on the console versions. So good job lying to yourself to hid your PS4 buyer remorse

          • sync90

            You in denial, because it shits on pc? Its real time! Med level pc on paper is more powerful, but PS4 has closed dev enviroment which bumps it upto high on pc. I asked you where are all the amazing pc exclusives? Im lying because i regret buying a ps4? LMAO weird!

          • doplerradar

            Why on Earth would anyone wish that Xbox One will be the last Microsoft console? One reason why people enjoy PS4 is because of Xbox. Xbox 360 gave Sony a run for its money that forced it to come up with great ideas and be more consumer friendly. Plus many great features that PS has like party chat and trophies were inspired by Xbox. Competition is good for the industry. It’s been proven again and again to have great effects on both Xbox and Sony. Unless you want Sony to treat you like crap and make many of the same mistakes they made with the PS3.

          • doplerradar

    At my local GameStop 1/2 of the shelf space is currently Xbox 360 and One. The other space is shared by PS4, PS3, Vita, Wii U, Wii (heck they gave Wii as much space as PS3), and 3DS. PS4 and PS3 is all squeezed together in the very back of the store. GameStop should just change their name to “GameXbox” or “GameOne” or “MicroGames”.
    Cheers!!!!

      I think its awesome that the game will have the content from 4 games, and be able to run halo 2 like they did with the remaster CE. But, that doesn’t mean that the xbox is now magically running at 120fps internally like some are trying to say.

      • Miami Prodigy

        Forza 5, Wolfenstein, halo the master chief collection, halo Spartan assault, NBA 2k14…. are all in 1080p at 60fps.

        And there are a bunch of other games that are in 1080p (destiny, forza horizon 2, sniper elite 3, need for speed, etc.)

        This resolution crap is way over blown….

        • sync90

          I think people are just surprised that the X1 is struggling to hit certain resolutions so early on. 792p for a graphically poor game is quite pathetic really.

          • Miami Prodigy

            Your right….

            But the devs have said its harder to develop on the X1 than on the PS4. I’m confident as time goes on (and with the 10% gpu/ direct x12) we won’t have to see games below 900p on any console

          • sync90

            Im not so sure. I think we’ll see different resolutions on BOTH systems this gen. It will depend on the game and dev.

          • Illusive Man

            Witcher is 900p before the XDK update and over a year from launch.

            You’re exaggerating.

          • sync90

            I’m exaggerating??? Your delusional! Ever since X1′s release theres been game after game coming out with lower resolution than the ps4. Its been all over the internet since day one.

            Titanfalls graphics suck bad, all at 792p and not even 60fps locked. Yeah, im exaggerating.

          • Illusive Man

            Titanfall was not a launch title but is still in the 6 month window meaning early.

            The early XDKs were known to be problematic. And the 10% reserved GPU had a real impact on games. You may not think so, but how about we cut 10% of the power from the PS4.

            1.81 TF power goes down to 1.629
            1152 spu goes down to 1036
            etc etc

            Does the PS4 still have the same graphical fidelity as it does now?

            I doubt it.

          • sync90

            Thats the dumbest thing i’ve ever heard. X1 gaining 10% hasn’t changed the PS4′s superior specs whatsoever. The PS4 has the same, ie better gfx fidelity than the poorly conceived X1 ever will. Deal with it.

          • Not_true

            Completely wrong and delusional.

            Ok let me ask you one question. Why would the X1 be able to display Halo 4 in 1080/60 with no problem. But cant Halo 2? Is it A. that the X1 is not powerful enough to run a 10 year old game at 1080 even though it can run a 3 year old game at 1080. Or B. The engine switching system is proving difficult.

          • sync90

            Ok, i’ll agree with that one. Didn’t look at it that way until Jeremiah L posted exactly what you just said.

            So. I’ll eat a big shit sandwich and admit i was wrong about that. I’m not going back on anything else ive said though.

          • Dan

            Thank you. Dude buy an X1. I have both the X1 and PS4. The X1 is really awesome.

          • sync90

            I dont have time to game on 2 consoles. I still have 360 and ps3 games ive never finished. If Halo 5 blows my socks off though i may find it to tempting.

            First Halo is one of my best gaming memories.

          • Illusive Man

            Yea but not 900p vs 1080p

          • sync90

            Wrong. AC4 on ps4 looks way better than 900p X1 version. Easy

          • Xtremer_Derp

            AC4 on PC looks better on the PC than on PS4. Easy.

          • Illusive Man

            They also thought UFC on PS4 was 1080p.

          • Dan

            What is it? lol I’ve not payed any attention to that game.

          • Illusive Man

            its 900p on both.

      “Bu bu bu May sales were just low because they were holding out for the $400 SKU! Tidal wave of $400 SKU sales incoming in June!” Sorry if sales reality is intruding on your delusions.

      It must suck to end up constantly wrong.

        Derp you still believe Tidux so LOL trying to cry misterxmedia at ppeople when you believe in mistertiduxmedia

          Can the moderators please ban this mustard peasant troll again. It’s been banned multiple times on dualshockers, gamingbolt, cinemablend, onlysp, gamepur, and pretty much everywhere on disqus. All it does is spread lies and hate about consoles and PS4 especially.

  • xbox1rules23

    hasn’t even been a year and you stupid sony fanboys think it’s over. hahahaha funny

    • Guest

      Xbox will never catch up to PS4 in global sales. Hope that helps.

      • Vious

        ok derp. there’s many years left to go.

        • Jecht_Sin

          Sure, sure. In many years the PS4, and even the Wii U, may also get a larger gap in sales though. Which is where I put my money on. :p

          • Xtremer_Derp

            Which will never catch up to the PC in global marketshare.

            Second place forever Sony and going out of business. Karma for trying to spy on consumers.

          • Jecht_Sin

            Wait a minute. You’re not our beloved derp, are you? I thought we were talking about the Xbone losing.

            thus let me know, smartypants. Are you comparing the PC sales, which include all PCs used for work in the corporations, offices, etc., with console sales? Check the games sales. The PC is far behind. The last one is 1.8 million copies of Watch Dogs for PS4 the first week vs 100K for PC.

          • The_Fire_Rises

            You used VGChartz. Opinion in the trash. Like your posting.

          • sync90

            You keep getting owned. Give up! LMAO! LMAO! LMAO!

          • The_Fire_Rises

            Where did I get owned? I just keep winning

      • Xtremer_Derp

        PS4 will never catch up to PC gaming in global market share. Hope that helps.

        You don’t know that. It is impossible to know that. Only time will tell.

        no girl will ever touch you. hope that helps

  • Dennis Crosby

    If you guys didn’t know Microsoft and games top partnered a couple weeks ago for gamestop to promote the new Kinect less sku. They also have gamestop giving out over a Million dollars in Xbox gift cards. Tuesdays and Thursdays on twitter. You also can trade in any console and get and extra $50 towards both the Xbox one and PS4

  • sync90

    Right, well. Thats all the xbots put firmly in there place. My work is done.

    • Grant A

      If you could stop running around like a fanboy with your head cut off, and actually think before you respond to xbox fans, none of these arguments would happen, you don’t need to go flaming about 1080p every time an article mentions M$.

      • sync90

        Its all designed to wind them up.

        • Grant A

          I like playing games, not arguing with little boy 30 year olds that have hormone irregularities.

          • Xtremer_Derp

            LOL Sony console warriors on Dualshockers never get banned. They get lauded by the mods while the site owner tries to pretend he’s neutral.

        • Xtremer_Derp

          Admitting you are a troll. Hilarious.

          • sync90

            And still got under your skin. Even more hilarious

        • DLConspiracy//

          Your actions make this community fall apart.

          • Grant A

            I like your piercing honesty, someday the likes of him will hopefully fall prey to the logical conclusion that bashing others opinions does not make ones own better.

          • DLConspiracy//

            I don’t mind opinions at all, but putting people down for their preferences on which console they prefer is too much. I own both and because I own an Xbox one this automatically makes me prone to being a supposed idiot because I enjoy it as well. That’s the only thing that gets under my skin. Its become a game of popularity and bullying. When you and I know that if one of our friends in real life invited one of us to play on another console we would play with them and have fun.

          • Grant A

            I look forward to discussing games with you, Mr conspiracy, you’ve got yourself a little more public respect today.

          • DLConspiracy//

            You too! I just want to play games with people and be excited about them.

          • sync90

            Please point out where i was bashing other people and there opinions?

          • sync90

            OMG stop overreacting, you sound like a women with pmt.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Sexism. Nice one.

          • sync90

            More crying.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Please just stop. Can’t we play games without hating each other?

          • sync90

            I dont hate you one bit.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Then stop trying to insult me. That’s how civil conversations work.

          • sync90

            What insults? First, i said you were over reacting, then i said ‘more crying’ i fail to see where the insults are.

          • DLConspiracy//

            If I have to point it out you are further down the rabbit hole than I might be able to help. But OK.., I will play along.

            “OMG stop overreacting, you sound like a women with pmt.”

            “more crying”

            Those don’t sound like compliments to me, do they to you?

          • sync90

            No. But there hardly what you’d describe as insults. Statements, thats all. Some people are overly sensitive.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Some people instigate fights to hide their insecurities.

          • sync90

            Some people bring it on themselves, appearing weak attracts it.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Nice. Have a great day bullying people and not enjoying games.

          • sync90

            Have a nice life being the victim, and crying about it to others

          • DLConspiracy//

            Done yet? Feel better? Last word?

          • sync90

            Talking to you on DS does not affect the way i feel in anyway whatsoever. Unlike you

          • DLConspiracy//

            Not sure what that means. I am gonna go watch paint dry.

          • sync90

            Keep playing the victim. It suits you.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Neat. The day I take advice from a fanboy will be the day I give up gaming.

          • sync90

            Whatever you say Mr Weak-Sauce. Boo Hoo

          • Bugdiecat

            hoo boo

          • sync90

            Weak people always cry.

          • Bugdiecat

            women have payments??

          i think it worked.

      Game stop employee hits him over the head with ps4. He awakens strapped in hog tie position behind him a ps move controller strapped to a sex machine. Employee looks at him for a moment then flips the switch on the wall. Ps move rams forward penetrating the man over and over. Employee walks off.

  • David Kropodra

    where are the deals?

  • Xbone Last Place 4 Life

    People just don’t want your console MS get it through your heads. That’s why you’re last place.

    • Xtremer_Derp

      And Sony is forever second place behind PC

      • Jecht_Sin

        And PC is forever second place behind mobile phone. So what?!

        • The_Fire_Rises

          You seem upset that PC will deliver games at better framerates and resolutions than the PS4 at a cheaper price while leaving consoles in the dust throughout the generations.

          Keep lying and spinning and shilling for the PS4. This will be a long generation for you.

      • sync90

        And again! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • derpburp

      Huge black dildo slams across his face sending him to the ground and as he screams a game stop employee stuffs it in his mouth and firmly wedges a Xbox one in his ass. Man passes out and employee walks away.

    • ineedgames

      4 million wanted it.

      • Im_On_a_Drug_Called_Charlie_Sh

        Sold to retailers, not to customers.

  • RealityCheck2013

    “Xbox ONE – GameStop – Power to the TV watchers” :D

    • DLConspiracy//

      Old joke is old. Especially after last E3 flip flop of TV stuff.

      • Im_On_a_Drug_Called_Charlie_Sh

        Man this DLConspiracy guy sure spends a lot of time all over the internet defending and apologizing for Microsoft a lot, you see him all over the place, here, IGN, etc. doing a lot of Microsoft damage control, then he claims to be neutral, he should just be honest and admit he’s a Microsoft shill.

        • DLConspiracy//

          I think you probably spend more time trying to call people out then actual games. By the way two and a half men is over. Get over it. If you know where to sign up please let me know. I would love to get paid. Btw

          • Im_On_a_Drug_Called_Charlie_Sh

            I hate that show, and if the shoe fits bud, please shill on.

          • DLConspiracy//

            Shill is a funny word. I never used it. Anger management sucks. That show is horrible. #losing :p

      • You are flat out wrong

        Made me laugh that SCE and MS had the same amount of time for games – 90 minutes. Should have waited until the Bone’s second E3 before talking about TV crap!

    • derpburp

      Sony employee walks up and firmly wedges PlayStation tv in his rectum. “Take it!” *in Japanese accent.*

  • Michael Norris

    Hey Gamestop….I don’t want a Xbox one!

    • derpburp

      Game stop employee takes a console and firmly wedges it in his rectum. “Take it” says the employee.

  • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

    Ah, more GameStop trying to hustle the Super Roku One to the smart masses that don’t own it. They can both burn.

  • Agrippa

    Nothing wrong with making sure people know the xbox one is the same price as PS4 now and pushing it for a little while. Idk if Microsoft has anything to do with it but if so…are we complaining about a company trying to be successful and push there product? Certainly seems like there are people here who talk some crazy fan boy BS over these kinda things.

  • Vious

    it seems on the and many other sites only Microsoft related news can garner practically the largest number of comments.

  • potedude

    Wow an Amazon Kindle Fire HD for $119.99. That’s a bargain…

  • Mikail

    ^_^ lol……so what’s the ruckus? why so many comments, am i late to the parties?

    OT : One thing that interest me is the Halo Master Chief Collection, even thou I am not into pure fps games, i want to try Halo games, for Forza i can pass that, Sunset Overdrive maybe after reading some review. I will wait for hardware revision with slimmer model, Lost Odyssey, cheaper price, more exclusive and of course no more PR bullshit with The Cloud and i will considered to buy one.

  • Im_On_a_Drug_Called_Charlie_Sh

    Desperate times call for desperate measures.

    • DLConspiracy//

      The best thing for a company is to not try and sell their product. For the sake of you,

  • brianc6234

    Gamestop needs to stop being so close with Microsoft. They pushed them way to much the last generation. Time to switch side. Get away from the dark side Gamestop.
