Can't MS Just Force Parity so that the PS4 to runs at 720p?

#11benjimainPosted 10/24/2013 3:01:36 AM
MS may have the money, but they simply won't have the muscle this time. The PS4 will be too far ahead in sales, that devs won't be willing to play ball with them any more. They'll tell them to take a hike.

Sony calls the shots now. They push and pull the industry where they want it to go from 15th of Novemeber.

Eh if NBA2K14(which looks amazing) is running at 1080p and 60 fps then COD Ghosts should be as well. Which there's still no proof it isn't but just saying.


Thing is, the XB1 version of 2K14 wasn't shown yesterday.

It's hilarious they showing of the PS4 version of cod ghost in 1080p on ign when for the pass 7 years they only show xbox before cod games get release.

Even Activision who is in bed with M$ know the X1 is meh.

Sure, if one of their board members wasn't already actively trying to convince the others to get rid of the Xbox brand entirely. You already have internal members unhappy with how the console/brand in general is doing before it even launches.

eh, if sony and nintendo can weather that storm after all these years, then we know some guy with 1% stake in the company has no say at all in what happens to the xbox brand. you shouldn't worry. i'm not.

MS does have the money. This wouldn't be the first time they made Parity demands.

That's just for indie games

AC4, Watch Dogs, and Destiny are releasing PS4 timed exclusive DLC. What's MS gonna do about it? Not let them release those games on their console?

lol that would be the death of the Xbone

Considering the gaming division from Sony is one of the most profitable of theirs, and Nintendo in general has been making money out the wazoo for quite some time, I fail to see how they're weathering this particular storm >.>

You realize that 1% equates to 2 billion dollars, yes? An Investor, on the board, tends to have a fair amount of clout in what a company does or does not decide to do.

It's highly unlikely to happen, but I don't really think tossing money at every single company to force parity would be a wise idea because of it.

I think it would hurt MS more than help them to take such a stance. Companies are just as fickle as gamers themselves, and MS isn't in a great position. Doing this could turn a losing but profitable generation (for MS) into a PS2 v Xbox style shut out (which despite pony fantasizing, isn't likely to be the case unless MS just keeps screwing up even more).

they don't have to...publishers know they want to sell as many copies as possible

Making one better than the other will only sell one way...that's why devs are reluctant to say which one is better...at the most they will say they are close without lying.

MS took a gamble...sheesh they took many...but the lowest common denominator rule applies here.

They will develop for the xb1 because it's the weakest...and port it up to PS4 and PCs

it's a shame how they will be holding gaming back on a whole

they wanted to make money on the system out of the gate rather than the traditional 3 years in THEN start turning profit model...

sad...greed is going to crash gaming...

Seems more like they're starting on PCs and PS4 and porting down. Now that they're all so similar to develop for it won't be quite the same problem it used to be. This isn't going to be the PS3/Cell situation anymore.
