Xbox are announcing their new consoles at E3 to be released in 2020, although some game graphics are still not going to be great everything is going to be 4K 60fps which is needed now badly
I was insistent I was buying an Xbox One X on release, got a new 4k TV and everything but when it released and I looked at the benefits of 4k against what I already had for the cost of it, I just fucked the idea off. Didn't seem worth the outlay ... if there's a genuine next gen platform release, I'll buy it but I need it to be fully B/C with Xbox One right out the box.

I'd be surprised if they manage a consistent 4k 60fps and keep the prices of their consoles reasonable. It'd mean the equivalent of something like a 2080 or Vega, and the price would sky-rocket. I honestly think they'd be better off aiming 1080p or even 1440p and 60-120fps... but the consumer electronics market being what it is, it wouldn't surprise me to see 4k and 30fps.
I think only the major titles will be 4k 60fps it will be hard for alot of developers to do it they probably will do 1440p

Most games are getting 4k just around now, Red Dead obviously looking the best, The Division 2 and Anthem just came out at 4k 30fps but the framerates on both of them just feel so shit, if Xbox are going to come out with a new console worth £500 most games better be 4k 60fps lol

I literally only got it for PUBG lol, PUBG went from looking like ps2 graphics to looking solid, Red Dead is beautiful and for like UFC and Forza Horizon the 60fps option makes it much better but yeah its not really worth it

Games like Anthem and The Division 2 may be 4k but they dont look that good and the frames are so shit its worth just waiting for the next gen consoles

4k at 60fps takes some top end hardware even for this generation, I just don't see them being able to work that into a console build and have it last a full generation and still be able to have it in an affordable price range. I honestly think there'll be a range, like the xbox one s/x is now. Maybe a 1080p or 1440p 60fps version and then a more powerful (and expensive) 4k 60fps version

DICE went from possibly pulling a decent ways ahead of c0d after BF1, to the massive flop that is BFv

I wonder what the fuck Bioware were doing during Anthem's six years of development
garbage story
grindfest
lifeless world
potentially ruining consoles
ME:A which was made by the bioware B team (which no longer exists due to poor sales), sold better & was received better

Bethesda hung themselves with fo76

press F to pay respects to former great devs
BFV is a solid game. Bad publicity

bfv is a disaster, it’s still an ok game because any battlefield game can’t really be that bad but it’s about as bad as it’s possible to make a bf game for me

Given up on it unless they release a map pack which probably won’t ever happen because of the “live service” instead of paid dlc.

Don’t get what they’re thinking with the battle royale either can’t see it being a hit when all the other battle royale games are free

ME:A was a shadow of former Mass Effect games too, I played it and completed it but it just wasn't on the level of the original trilogy.

I dunno what the fuck is up with the big devs right now, I didn't even buy BFV as it got panned (outwith all the political bollocks) even from the most well known BF players.

Someone there needs to go back to the drawing board and figure out what they did to make Battlefield 2142 so spectacular. All Battlefield games are essentially good but there's something about Battlefield 2 and Battlefield 2142 that set them way above the rest. I stopped playing all other FPS shooters when they came out just to play them exclusively.

I only started with BF3 so I missed all that, kind of tempted to go back actually to any PC gamers on here will any pre BF3 games just run on a modern laptop fine? Havent played a PC game (excl FM) in absolutely years so have no idea how it works my laptops quite new but I doubt its got gaming graphic cards etc does that matter for old games?

As for the bf direction overall I thought it was fine until BFV, people didnt like BF1 but I really did and either way it was a big successful hit wheras BF5 isnt, to me its battle royale influenced in all the wrong ways and theyve put a load of battle royale type stuff in the game that just doesnt work in conquest which is THE battlefield mode, and the maps which are such a make or break factor of any FPS are boring both visually and gameplay wise. Thats all aside from the weird making a progressive feminist ww2 game stuff which surprisingly hasnt worked.

cd projekt red is the saviour

:think
about as solid as BF1 I guess, just without the authentic World War feel
felt similar to a wolfenstein game


oh man, take me back to those days
the hype was real
the game was great
best Battlefield game imo

Not in agreement about your ideas on BF1 or BFV. But I do wish battlefield would go back to current period. If they don't make bad company 3 next I will be pissed.
