Phantom Dust remaster is supposed to be out today for free.
injustice came out today as well. grabbed that on my ps4 though,

As of now they're talking about game features being reliant on the new SSD tech. One example given was that city traversal speed in Spiderman had to regulated in order to allow for parts of the city to load while you were web swinging, so they had to moderate your traversal speed to the limitations of how fast the game could pull information from the consoles HDD. Recently, a Sony Spokesman said: "An ultra-high-speed SSD is the key enabling creators to build new and unique gameplay experiences.", so if you don't have your game loaded on that proprietary SSD then it sounds like you may be missing out on gameplay experiences. The X2 is also rumored to have an SSD included as well (talks are that the OS loads from dead shutoff to the home page in 5 seconds which is down from its current 45 seconds), so it sounds like super fast SSDs are going to be the norm for next gen and may cause issues for those who hook up external 5200rpm HDDs.
I hope some type of compression system is in place come next gen, because, at the looks of things, as more sophisticated as games are becoming, that only means more depth and the larger scale it is going to be required and unless better compression is integrated, then I think we may be looking at 100GB install minimums come next gen. 4TB HDD's might become the average standard and/or necessary purchase for next gen systems.
That is a pretty hefty ass cast there. Let's hope something fantastic comes out of it!

Its like what I was saying a while back, Sony could not compete with MS once things move to the cloud. MS has about 2x more money invested in data centers around the world than Sony is worth as a company, so they could not afford to just build out more data centers to compete and they would need to do something or be left behind. Joining with MS is very interesting indeed, and with the talk of XCloud making its way to Nintendo a few months back means that MS may be the primary player in the streaming future of games.
Also, now its MS + Sony vs Google Stadia, lol. Bye Google.
Stadia was a joke to begin with. Half the globe can't keep up with those ridiculous connections to stream their content. That thing will be D.O.A. MS and Sony working together is mighty interesting though.
I guess the enemy (MS) of my enemy (Google) is the tactic Sony is going with here. I would love to see if this partnership blossoms into something more in the future too. Perhaps they might even learn to like one another almost as much as MS and Ninty do with each other to collaborate on other projects too.
This is vastly interesting. https://gamerant.com/microsoft-e3-2019-leak/

Heck it had me at Mechassault. Half that list is win freakin' win.
Good to know. If half of this list comes true I will call it a successful E3 showing for them by far.
I love Forza but I'm cool if they hold it back for next-gen, maybe even past launch for a second-batch of titles. That series needs some time to breathe....I believe there have been 6 Forza games this gen (5,6,7,FH2,FH3,FH4)....and that's too many, even if they are so damn great.
Fair points. I can definitely see Forza as a lunch title and think that would be a smart move.

Thanks! It's $15 now but still a steal. $5/mth is nothing!

The latest info has nothing to do with him though. As I posted in the GoT topic last night, Martin mentioned hes been doing work with a Japanese game dev on his personal blog. And then since he posted that, gematsu figured it was okay to say that they've spoken to someone from within From who gave them the info. If you read the second paragraph of the article you'd have known that. They just mentioned the thing in March of his, because it probably means he did actually have valid info on this one thing.
EDIT: didn't mean for that to sound as antagonistic is it sounded to me upon a second reading. Or does it even sound that way. I don't know. I've been arguing all day with people at work and now everything sounds like an argument to me. What ever.
Yeah it's all over the internet now about that George Martin collab with a Japanese developer. It's likely aiming to be a From Soft game code named Great Rune allegedly. We shall see come E3.
I'm so happy the MS conference is on Sunday this year so I do not have to rush and watch it on my break at work. Cannot wait to see what they show.

Based on his track record, I guess we will see about this at E3 2025.
