It's a big deal because games proported to be running on the actual Xbone hardware are running on PCs instead; PCs that might have stronger specs than the console.

It's effectively false advertising, anon.

False advertising is false advertising.

It's also more of a concern when MS does it with the Xbone since they face the harshest criticism for bringing an underpowered system to the table.

Lel i cant believe it. So thats why there have been so many graphic scaledowns. Microsoft are not even trying to metigate the problem by just having less graphics in games. They are still demoing with max pc gaphics even though they cant ever live up to it. That is legit horrible.
>>
>>257889813
PS4 is selling well because Xbone blundered so bad even fratboys saw through it.
The Wii U is selling bad because muh graphics and kiddy games.

Xbone selling worse than the Wii U, I don't care if Wii U has been out one more year, that's just tragic.

Its not false advertising

basically Microsoft makes all their games on PC, ports down to Xbone then if the sales are bad they can release the PC version later and continue to make money

Its not only smart, its an insanely lucrative business position that allows them to take risks.

>Make Banjo Threeie even though no one plays platformers
>Game sells ok on Xbone, but not enough
>Release on PC due to direct X and how an entire game can be ported by 4 people in under a month.

I still thinks there should be a law against it. You're selling me a game to run in a specific hardware, then you better advertise it running in it. If you're running into a PC, then you have to atleast confirm the PC version before showcasing and it should always have a warning stating in what hardware it's running. That's the only consumer friendly way to do it.

Why is this allowed?
>>
>>257886441
Because games in the past could not actually run on Windows you know?

When developing they connected their PCs with cables to devkits to test it.
Games actually made good use of the target hardware back then, specially when many times consoles where much cheaper than equivalent PC hardware.

But when you have games that run on PCs, probably even with better performance, but you release them as "exclusives" for an inferior system, this is why people should be enraged.

I don't even understand why people don't just boycott Microsoft consoles after this, it is plain lies and greedyness. There is actually no need for an XBox One, since is nothing more than a PC inside a pretty case plus some controllers.

Any game made for XBone (and possibly PS4) can ran on PC, I'm pretty sure that most of them have PC versions already, used during development, but of course, they stay locked with devs.
>>
This just in. The Xbone and PS4 are literally just PCs running on a different OS.

If a game runs on one of these consoles, it requires minimal effort to get it running on a PC.
>>
>>257891569
>pretty case
>xbone
>>
>>257888705
So its skyrim
>>
>>257890276

How is it not false advertising if they're making people think the game will look as good as it does on a powerful PC on their weaker Xbone? It's straight deception.

And Microsoft aren't developing these titles themselves, anon.

Also, a competent PC port usually costs around $1,000,000 and isn't something you slap together in a week.

I really think you don't know what you're talking about. MS' business decision here is pretty transparent.

>we have a weaker machine than the competition
>we get shit on for having games that look and run worse than the competition
>so we can't show a game running on native hardware because it will look shitty
>let's just lie about it and pretend, and by the time someone buys the game and realizes they got hoodwinked, it won't matter
>>
>>257891801

>>
>>257893151

Honestly, I'd blame EA more than Sony in this case since BF4 has been plagued with awful issues since it got released.

Not to say Sony is blameless, but I'd expect EA to be scummier faster than Sony.
>>
>>257891284
Random PC footage for a trailer showing 50 games is nothing compared to having physical Xbones at trade shows to pretend it's running on them and have PCs with TITANS under the desks.

This just shows how desperate MS is.
>>
I will never understand why do you hate this so much
I bought xbox one to play at the evening after work. I am not a hardcore player, I am usually playing only trending games 1-2 hours in a day.
I dont fucking care about the fps or resolution, I just want to play games and relax. I bought xone and not ps4 because I had x360 for years before this, and I prefer the controller more from ms.

Are you retarded, anon? Or just pretending?

The difference between an Xbone and a PC is that the PCs being used to demo these games are appreciably more powerful than the Xbone.

Therefore, it's disingenuous to suggest the images on the screens at these stations are an accurate representation of how it will look/play on the Xbone.
