    Xbox Scarlett ~16 Tflops? (4x more powerful than One X)

    Just thinking to myself that a 4x to CPU alone is kinda small. Especially when you consider the baseline is a Jaguar... It can't be using a Matisse design if that is the case as i'd imagine the core is clocked quite low to make it only 4x (maybe ~1GHz if you reference the Sony SKU) which means...

    Xbox Scarlett ~16 Tflops? (4x more powerful than One X)

    Then that makes it even more unclear. Floating point ops can also be applied to CPU's (or any circuit with an FPU). More over, in addition to MIPS, CPU's have the capacity to process data, logic, and IO. So are they the "Pure" part? Further still, a large part of raytracing is calculating...

    Xbox Scarlett ~16 Tflops? (4x more powerful than One X)

    From a technical perspective, you can't really say what they are talking about - So it's not a 4x to the TF metric of the OX - at least at this point. There are probably Smart Toasters(these things actually exist for some reason) that are 2x more powerful... if the point of comparison is the...

    God of War PS4 sales top 10 million, franchise strength increasing!

    That's pretty good! Cory Barlog seems like an awesome guy. Good to see his vision take hold so well.

    Sony and Microsoft agreement

    Yup, you can consider Gaikai an attempt to move to cloud gaming, but as i said above; "Cloud" is just marketing term; It is a subset of what you get from a cloud service. As you pointed out yourself, the DOD uses cloud servers. I doubt they're using them for gaming. It's like the example i...

    Sources: Call of Duty 2020 in upheaval as Treyarch takes over, plans Black Ops 5

    You do have to wonder at how hard it must be to try to create something from the IP nowadays. I wonder if they'd find any success dropping all pretence, and seeing how well something new would work. FPS can be a varied genre, but Activision seem to wholeheartedly wish to shoehorn themselves...

    Sony and Microsoft agreement

    Not too sure what the PSN vs XBL debate is, but Sony has never been in the cloud business (hence the piggyback on AWS). MS Azure =/= XBL. MS have the good fortune to integrate it for sure (since it's theirs), but the PSN, XBL, Steam, Epic store, etc. are all content delivery platforms - See...

    What will you remake in Dreams next?

    It's like a mini game engine :ROFLMAO:

    Sony and Microsoft agreement

    There are only three platforms that offer the service, on a global scale: Google, AWS, and Azure (MS). I don't think Sony ever had a competing service and probably piggybacked on AWS. Azure, as best as i can tell, is the only one that has a "gaming" inclination. Google, until recently, wasn't...

    *Exclusive* Playstation 5: What to Expect From Sony's Next-Gen PlayStation.

    Rumours going around suggesting PS5 will launch at the same price point as PS4. But Mark Cerny made a comment that it would launch at an "appealing price" for what we got.... you can't really see the guys body language through the text, but that could be either a good thing (PS4 again), or a...

    *Exclusive* Playstation 5: What to Expect From Sony's Next-Gen PlayStation.

    I dunno, i'd have to just take it with a few truck fulls of salt, as Richard said. Engineering codes can be changed if the company felt so inclined. But it looks pretty good though. If the console is coming out next year, you'd be getting around to finalising your design now, and chipping away...

    *Exclusive* Playstation 5: What to Expect From Sony's Next-Gen PlayStation.

    One of the strengths of Nintendo tends to be its IP. Be it Pokemon, Mario, Zelda etc. they manage to keep themselves in the game. Where Sony and MS chase an ever increasing bar, Nintendo just does games at an affordable price point. Arguably, Sony has the stronger first party line-up when...

    *Exclusive* Playstation 5: What to Expect From Sony's Next-Gen PlayStation.

    I think that rumours a bit reaching imho. GTA is literally printing money for Take-Two. I know it's not 50/50, but since there's only two companies i'm gunna massage it with a hammer to say it's 50/50, but Take Two are looking at losing half of that money making potential just to stand behind...

    Forza Street isn't on Xbox - and that's a good thing because it's bad!

    After 3 they wised up with 4, now comes the relapse i guess :/ That whole thing is junk... At the top end, they're asking $80 for basically nothing.

    Probably just covering bases. Anything one of them doesn't say, the other is going to be all over. I think he's taken it from the Wired Article... just provided it in a neat bullet point form.

    *Exclusive* Playstation 5: What to Expect From Sony's Next-Gen PlayStation.

    Zen has the potential for a crap tonne of PCI-E lanes (whether this is incorporated into the console design remains to be seen though). NVME uses 4 lanes on PC's, can't see a reason Sony couldn't design around 8 lanes (Literally overkill tho!). Technically, you theoretically exceed what PC's can...

    *Exclusive* Playstation 5: What to Expect From Sony's Next-Gen PlayStation.

    I'd wager the Nextbox will be pretty much identical. They are still going to AMD for their parts, and AMD don't have anything other than Zen 2, and Navi (that is new anyways). I don't see them settling for anything less than the latest and greatest from AMD as well. As for ray tracing...

    *Exclusive* Playstation 5: What to Expect From Sony's Next-Gen PlayStation.

    Yeah, Lisa Su pretty much confirmed as well: I think we can pretty much expect it to look similar to the desktop counter part (probs in a smaller package though) ^GPU would take the empty space highlighted in pink. Looks like we are actually getting a decent console this time around, and...

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order premiere set for April 13

    Writers are shooting from the hip with regards to how the Jedi are portrayed. There's Rey, who becomes a Jedi master after watching Luke drink some green milk, and now this dude seemingly was just born to be a Jedi master. I always liked Star Wars (im one of those odd few that liked the...

    PlayStation 5 to be released in 2020

    Anthem seems to have only come together in the last year. It was far from a release ready product, and clearly not something that was worked on continuously for 5 years. Guy was either informed of its state, or lucked in. So who knows. Since this rumour made the rounds though, AMD have revealed...
