That's been in my PC for years now. It's been higher mid-range for about 4-5 years now. That's probably the worst part about most of the "main" consoles is that their hardware profiles are already super dated even before they announce. Probably the biggest reason devs are like "Well we can't really do much new here, so let's just re-release the good stuff we did last gen for the most part."

true, by the time they can engineer and manufacture and get a console out there, in PC terms its already last gen.

In order to play Forza 7 to match the performance of the X you need something like a $1200 computer as the minimum required parts to play at 60@4k are an i7-6700k @ 4GHZ for the CPU and either a Ryzen 7 or GTX 1080 for the GPU.Even then Digital Foundry found the X version still looked better and the same is being said about Assassin's Creed Origins. The 1X's RAM is also incredibly fast at 326gb/s which is much faster than what people probably had in their PCs 4-5 years ago.

that's true, but optimization for that console goes a long way.

They're being sneaky with their marketing on this! The Xbox One does not outperform a $1200 PC and doesn't actually come anywhere close to it. They're basically upscaling from much much lower source outputs and upscaling with some tricks to make it cleaner than a simple upscale AND it's optimized for that hardware profile and that hardware profile alone (and using such terms as "looks better" which are completely irrefutable and subjective and is not the term "IS better"); the thought that a $500 box would somehow outperform a PC at double or more its cost is ludicrous. They could put the same work into the PC port and get stunningly better results. It'd be like exclaiming that buttered toast is the best thing ever because you just tried it and it's amazing, even as they ignore the pantry with all the jam, peanut butter and honey in the world.

If they focused their attention on a better hardware profile, it's obvious that they would have a WHOA! moment and just make the Xbox One X version look like hot garbage in comparison ("Oh man we can do EIGHT K @ 50fps with some strategic graphical downgrades!", precisely what they've accomplished with the XBOX version); that's just common sense. They're just wanting to make this look REALLY REALLY good, which of course I'm sure it is. But there's nothing in the Xbox One X that magically makes it pump out double the performance at half the cost. They're Strategically Ignoring Reality™.

I don't see your point though. I mean, it either runs better on the console or the PC. Who cares why? If it's half the cost and runs better, then it's half the cost and runs better.

You're also not making an apples to apples comparison. You're comparing paying retail for your individual parts at a reasonable profit vs buying a console all together from a HUGE manufacturer who got the individual party at insanely minimal cost and are likely selling at a loss or a very small profit. So maybe the XBOX One X costs $400 to make and a $1k PC costs $600 to make. And then you add in optimization, etc., and you may be able to get a lot closer than you'd think.

I don't think anyone here (even @dustin11 ) would argue that in terms of specs and raw power a $1k custom-built PC isn't more advanced than an XBOX One X, but if all you want it for is gaming, who cares? All that matters is how well the games run.

I saw just yesterday that the Xbox One X costs MS $600, so they're going to lose money on every console sold, they didn't really put a bunch of cheap off the shelf parts into it and call it good or anything. I agree, you can super power a PC to where its far beyond the capabilities of an X but you're also going to pay out the nose for it. I work on a $7500 laptop to do high powered CAD work, so I know how expensive this stuff can get.

I'm not trying to write a diss track on the Xbox One X; I think this is the hardware profile it should have launched with and probably would have been significantly better for Microsoft to have launched at, and will help the Xbox One X become a much more serious contender in the market, AND help make some kickass games. I'm just pointing out obvious logic to their flawed presentation that "This is better than a $1200 PC!" because that idea is 1. misleading possible customers and 2. hopelessly flawed.

Basically I hate marketing.

Starts at just after the 1 minute mark. It has mostly to do with the difference in AA between the console version and PC version:

If this is costing MS $600 now, what do you think it would have cost MS back in 2013 and how much could they have sold it for upon launch? I think specs somewhere in the middle of the X and the OG X1 would have been the sweet spot and for them to drop the Kinnect but keep the $500 price.

That was half the problem with the launch though, wasn't it? They forced the Kinect on the price tag which heavily inflated the SKU cost and made it difficult to tell just how much the actual cost of the hardware under the hood was at the time. Considering it quickly dipped almost $200 once they cut it, you'd have to assume the hardware cost was pretty low unless they've been selling at a loss since two Christmases ago.

If I'm being frank, I don't think the market or hardware justified a 2014 launch, echoed by developer "meh"s at the development kits. If your profile's that bad and that expensive, you don't HAVE to bring out a new machine. I don't think the first two years of the PS4 or Xbox One were ...good at all, really. Just slightly more polished Xbox 360/PS3 upscales with some extra effects overall. Since then they've found a few new tricks to use, but just imagine if the Xbox One had launched even a year later at $600 with its current profile, where we'd be at TODAY with that hardware profile. It'd be completely sick.

I haven't really seen any games come out since either launch that I could point to and say "Well you couldn't have done anything like that on the last generation". Most of the best performing titles on these systems WERE from the last generation.

So the SWITCH. Picked up Cave Story + on clearance at my local Walmart, (they are having a pretty massive clearance, many PS4/One/Wii U/3ds games $3-10). Never played it other than the Wii U demo. Also had Binding of Isaac but it was still high.

At the time I believe both companies were just breaking even on hardware costs, so minus the Kinect, I would probably guess the X1 cost MS $350/console since the PS4 was costing Sony about $400. The X1 also didn't drop to $200 very quickly after the Kinnect was dropped, it took years, I believe its pretty recent that it dropped to those levels actually, so it took more like 3 years to drop.

I don't either, neither console really had much for quite a while other than multiplats and slightly higher res versions of last gen games. I remember MS being surprised at the PS4's announcement because they thought it was too early and had to scramble to get their console to stores. I think this next gen we're going to see a much bigger boost in CPU since the GPU in the X is already really good. Using the Jaguar core is probably the biggest hindrance on the current gen of consoles.

There have been some game that could have been last gen and others that couldn't have been. I think all those indi games probably could have, they're not graphically demanding, but the higher end AAA games probably not. Ones like Forza 7, Horizon, etc.... would have had to make large compromises.

Despite that, I think that Nintendo has been killing it with their hardware that is weaker than the X1 was when it launched back in 2013.

Emphasis on my local. No clue if others are. A few games I looked up were lower than Amazon trade in.

Holy crap. Opened Cave Story and was shocked to see a nice instruction manual and a small CD. Is it a soundtrack?

i agree with @DiamondDave that the OneX is what Xbox one should have always been, likewise with the ps4 pro, though I guess they have to consider costs, ps4 wouldn't be on its way to possibly ps2 level lifetime sales if they couldn't have kept the price down

The fact that both platforms had to release updated hardware profiles within a couple years of their launch is basically an admission of guilt.

We won't see the Switch pull that kind of crap! (???)

I get what you're saying, but I don't think PS4 will hit 155 million, nowhere near. They're at, what, 50-60 right now and we're at 4 years in. Rumors have already been circulating about a PS5 in 2-3 years from now. My guess is that it will hit 110 max lifetime sales. The Switch looks to be in position to take a ton of PS4's market in Japan and even begin creeping its way into its sales in the US.

I agree with price as well, that seems to be the #1 factor in a console's launch. Look at what happened when the PS3 launched at $600. That thing flat lined out of the gates even with PS2's momentum.

ya def. price is a factor for me day 1. 110mil lifetime isn't a bad estimate, I saw something yesterday that predicted it to end up all time #2, I don't see 155 either. not everyone who wants one already has one but I bet half at least probably do?
if switch continues to get support im sure its sales will stay strong as well.

The Switch will be interesting to see because that thing seems to be picking up momentum almost monthly. If they can keep the software releases as frequent as they were in 2017 then it could easily hit Wii numbers. Pokémon alone will be a massive system seller next year.

Nope. Not enough time to split between 3 consoles, I hardly even have time for both an X1 and Switch. I went with the X1 because of the better controller, Forza (I own ever game in the franchise), and all my friends and family are on Xbox. Those are the main reasons.

RPGs are okay, but I'm not buying a console just for 1 decent RPG, especially when I could just buy a $50 PS3 and play it on that. But no, I don't like survival horror games, never have.

What about uncharted franchise, NieR Automata..that game alone man...

But I get it. I got a PS4 because I really wanted to play FFX again and I knew FF7 remake was coming out. I don't like horror survival either but TLOU I loved because it was basically uncharted with a better story that happened to have zombies and without all the climbing.

3 consoles might be overkill but they all have something I need. PS4 exclusives, a 4K player, and Nintendo

Yeah, every console has something for everyone. As of now though I have more games than I have time to play, so a 3rd console would just get no use. I just got Cuphead, Forza 7, Golf Story, then South Park in a few week, then Mario a week later. Plus, most of those games you mentioned I can play on either a PS2 or PS3, so no PS4 really needed.

Cuphead is amazing. Its incredibly difficult, but so rewarding when you finally beat a boss has killed you 50 times. Even though it has 2D platformer stages, its the best boss rush game I've ever played.

There was no coop mode in the original that I remember unless I'm missing something, just a really crapty battle thing that was horrible.

I doubt they're going to do any local MP anything, which makes me really sad.

Yeah sorry not coop. I meant that mode from the first game where you could play against each other. They couldn't find it in 2 and I checked as well and I couldn't find it either. And for some reason, I thought Splatoon 2 also had local coop. I could have sworn I read that somewhere.

They said it would, then later on added fine print of "local play with multiple switches" BS. They have zero local MP anything and I doubt ever will.

I'm just not really all that into Sony's franchises, much like you probably aren't into MS's franchises. Just a difference in taste.

I guess to me it's about the game, don't really care who made it.

I've not been as into MS ones since I don't like FPS (no halo) and find em boring, and GOW was pretty boring too.

Forza is good, and I actually really liked quantum break, it was an awesome game. I'm about to try recore.

Otherwise Sony has the big edge other than Nintendo who rules them all.

There are franchises I like on PlayStation and franchises I don't like on Xbox, but I like more franchises on Xbox than I do PlayStation so that's where I game. Neither of them hold a candle to Nintendo though, they're in league of their own when it comes to quality made games.

Mario + Rabbids. Its an incredible game, this coming from someone who doesn't typically like these kinds of games.

It's okay. I got kinda tired of it after the second world, but I'll probably pick it up again down the line.

Next on my Switch beat-it lists is Tiny Barbarian DX (superb platformer) and Mario Odyssey

Nintendo increasing production of the Switch to 2 million/month and venders are on pace to ship 20 million by the end of the year. This will be good to draw in more 3rd parties.

I hope Mario (and the rest) can push all those units. They are sitting on shelves already in my area (upper midwest). Divert a bunch to Japan to fill their need if still in high demand, that should help bring more JRPG's.

So I got a 6ft usb-c cable from (tween dollar tree) 5 Below for $5, and an old wall charger (can also be found at Dollar Tree for $1). So why the hell is Nintendo charging $30 for a spare charge cable? Those $90 docks probably cost Nintendo less to make than what I paid for my $5 charge cable. Insane mark-ups on accessories.

The dock's got some additional hardware for the HDMI upscale. I'd imagine it's at least DOUBLE what you paid for your $5 charge cable!

I'm halfway through- aiming to finish before Mario hits. I'll let you know when I'm done if you don't have it by then.

Started some games recently, ARMS very fun, was plesently surprised heard its not for everyone but I like it. Splatoon 2 fun so far I am new to the series so am learning to play. Great game so far its was a digital code with the system so was happy its was only 3.6 gb, went on the 16gb memory card I had around so it worked out. Has Been Heroes, this game could have been great but man not sure how to say it but thank goodness I only lost $10 on this one.

Is anyone still playing Splatoon? I haven't played since Destiny 2 came out and I don't really have any desire to go back. It was fun for awhile, but pretty repetitive now. It was pretty much filler game for me to hold me over after I finished BotW.

Thanks, but I haven't played a new bball game since whatever one had a demo on Wii U. Maybe I'll check it out later in the season when it drops in price. I've been spending too much lately.

What looks dumb about it? It just looks like an old school GTA game to me. Is there some gimmick I'm missing?

I liked it. I won't get it on Switch though because I've beaten it on 3DS already when it was part of one of the eShop Humble Bundles (I wish they had done another one this year).
It's like 8-bit GTA but the story is funny and there's lots of old school references to stuff like Back to The Future and even Saved By The Bell. I liked it, but not something I feel I need to play through again.
