A year on from it being "months away," where is Xbox mouse and keyboard support?A year on from it being "months away," where is Xbox mouse and keyboard support?
Belimawr Avatar
They only said it because they have struggled with the x1, if they wanted it they would have done it from the start.

Not that having support for it helps Sony has had full mouse and keyboard support since the PS2 just developers refuse to support it leading Sony to officially licence keyboard and mouse game pad replacement to go round the developers.

But then even the PS1 had a mouse.

if you live in the GMT zone it's likely the same thing this time of year anyway, since very few countries don't do the hour change.

Look out, controllers. We've got analogue keyboards nowLook out, controllers. We've got analogue keyboards now

shame it will likely need programing into the games and developers seem to be very against allowing anything outside basic control systems.Reply

Yes and no. The way it works now it's possible to swap between regular keyboard and controller mode at a whim. So with a few exceptions, you'll be able to use it with any game that supports 360 controllers.


Will it need gamedev support to run perfectly? Yes. And in fact Blizzard just added support for Overwatch. :D

Microsoft’s Project Scorpio is awesome. It means finally everyone’s a PC gamerMicrosoft’s Project Scorpio is awesome. It means finally everyone’s a PC gamer

This is a completely different kind of hardware update than any console generation has had in the past. The performance uptick from the Scorpio is way ahead of a simple re-engineered Xbox Slim.


I also don't believe that either MS or Sony will start from scratch and completely redesign their console architecture again. Financially now it is too great a risk for either one of them to move too far away from the current PC-based design.

the entire appeal of consoles is the fact you buy a console you put a disc in and it works, they start blurring those lines they will lose a larger portion of their user base than anything else.


the PS4 is still a multi million unit selling console and still Sony's biggest money maker, it would be suicide for Sony not to force people to buy a new console and in turn sell on the devkits and dev rights to the new system.


Microsoft at the moments is reaping the ill will that came on the back of them trying to go more towards PC with near 100% digital sales and requiring to be online for the software security and locking games to the system, I say they are still suffering as their sales after that aren't even close to the PS4.


yes the systems are doing more yes this generation saw a bigger jump as both firms held back to reduce system costs at launch and at the time 4K was miniscule it's still a relatively niche market. so yeas there is a slightly different upgrade to the last generations, but not if you remember the fact the original version of the 360 didn't even support HDMI.


as I said it is par for the course of the hardware half life refresh.

all that to say it's no different to last generation? the PS3 and 360 both seen hardware upgrades going from standard to slim consoles to the point they put an inhibitor in the 360 to allow the new console to play the old games without having to do any software work going back over the game list.

the PS4 and X1 refresh is no different and to the majority of people using 1080 screens (and it is a majority) there are the same minor upgrades as the last generation, the only difference comes if you have a 4K TV. but then the PS4 Pro doesn't have a 4k bluray drive.

as for no new console there will be a new generation in a few years, every generation of consoles since the PS1 has had this same hardware refresh it isn't anything new and to make assumptions it is something new would show a lack of understanding how the console market has worked for the last 20 or so years. each console has a 6 - 7 year life cycle with a half life refresh, so from 2013 to 2016 you have 3 years falling pretty much in line with every generation before.Reply

No it was not.. I played FF11 for 6 years, and played FF12 for 1000's of hours. Neither game had anything to do with each other, they are not even based on the same planets/dimensions. Totally different stories and characters with no relation whatsoever!


You have no idea what you are talking about Belimawr.

why would you want to pay for this?

most games cap out on performance on a quad core chip, so for gaming this will offer nothing over the lesser chips. I've never got AMD's obsession with needing to have more cores, if they spent the money on trying to get more cores on core architecture they would be a lot stronger on core to core comparisons instead of often relying on heavily threaded programs and bench tests to outshine the competition.Reply
Dave James Avatar

At a guess I'd say it's probably a simpler problem working out how to jam more cores onto a die than to get one up to the single-threaded throughput of Intel's.


AMD are operating with a tenth of the R&D budget of Intel, so I still kinda think the CPU and GPU tech they do put out is seriously impressive in that context.
