Uhh, where's the photo?
Should be up again
Apparently there was a private Microsoft event that showcased a couple of tech demos running on Scorpio
I don't think it says very much from what we already know: Scorpio will be able to upscale games to 4K via supersampling, yada yada.
Do you think Scorpio will really offer richer detail and improved game audio? Or is it simply a console that ups the resolution of every game to 4K provided you have a good 4K TV? I keep thinking about how FM7 is going to look on both consoles. I.e. will the Scorpio version simply offer a cleaner, sharper look or will it actually have higher car/track detail and particle effects plus improved car audio?
I'm just going to wait and see. Windows Central's recent article about 4K on a 1080 screen made me a lot less enthusiastic about the system. I'm not getting a 4K screen anytime soon, so seeing what a potential Scorpio game's down sampling looks like doesn't do much for me. I'd be more excited about a 1080p @30FPS game now running 1080p @60FPS. Looking better at 30FPS doesn't mean much.
Right - 60 fps always better. Easier on the eyes. I'd much rather have that as opposed to the endless obsession with resolution.
Project Scorpio's dev kit shown off in a new short video. Pity it's animated but hopefully a real life unit's video will come soon.
And someone has worked out it's dimensions using that good old standard of measurement, USB port size
For the past few weeks I've been having a major issue with my XB1 headset, in that it is refusing to connect with my controller. The mic appears to work, as I can mute it and adjust the volume but no-one in my party can hear me, and more recently, I cannot hear anyone either.
I am 90% sure the controller is the issue as I only got the headset a few weeks ago while I've had the controller for nearly a year and a half. Plus if I have both the headset plugged in and the controller wired to the XB1, then everyone else just hears static. Since everything else about the controller works perfectly, I might just trade it in on Friday for a new one and hope a new controller will fix this issue.
Also, pretty good month for XBL games
Sweet, finally have the opportunity to give Watch_Dogs a try.
Same here. Always wondered what the gameplay would be like.
I'm more intrigued by Speedrunners and it's ability to destroy friendships.
Not bad at all.

I know it'll grow, but that's a shocking line-up. At the very least the first party launch titles should be in there.
It's also kind of annoying how much of this lineup is just XBOX 360 games. Out of the 111 games on this list, only 39 of them are XBOX ONE games. Hopefully we'll be getting a lot more XB1 games added in the future.
The laughably lazy/cut down 360 port of the fantastic enhanced PS2 port of the enhanced revision of a Neo Geo game from 1998.
Now on XBone's XBox Game Pass.
At least Viva Pinata is there.
Would be nice if the Gold Pass were available on Windows 10... Like how PS Now is available on PC.
Yeah I know, right? Still no FM4.
And they require you to have a CC/DC on your account even for the free version so they can cleverly start deducting $10 each month. Any other way would be just too simple and MS wouldn't want that, now would it?
Every single company that offers a free trial for anything that has a monthly subscription to it will ask for a CC. This is not new. No one does that.
I'm not so interested in this, regardless. 10 bucks a month on top of the gold subscription I'm already paying is pushing it.
Maybe I've missed it, but is the entire PGR series still absent from backwards compatibility?
AFAIKno PGR games are backwards compatible
What a bummer.
Right, there's already a pretty good lineup coming out each month via Games with Gold, not to mention the sweet *** deals.
Now this is a big deal
Long thread, sorry if this has been posted or isn't relevant.
The Verge thinks MS are gonna try again with the box that does everything concept.
I hope that doesn't signal a repeat of the first Xbox One presentation. We want to know how it runs new and existing games, not about partnerships with sports labels, TV channels and streaming services. Oh, and please do not end with a disappointing price tag (i.e. over £400).
It's already been confirmed to run any game that is available on the base, a long time ago, hasn't it? With the PS4 Pro being set at $400, which would be around £310 for you, and the Scorpio having significantly more oomph, I would imagine you're in for disappointment. Although, I would say if it's under $500 that it would be fairly priced.
I'd say that Microsoft announcing Bro-tastic partnerships and talking about media hub functionality was fairly far down the list of the things that made people hate the Xbone so fiercely for the first year and a half of its life.
The article covers this.
