I was reading/debating on what to do whenever I go next gen. I prob won't buy a next gen console until next year sometime, but am researching now. I was leaning PS4. $100 cheaper, seems like the more 'powerful' system, 60fps on all games, and some of the PS exclusives look pretty good to me. Now, don't go all 'fanboy' on me and get defensive about it. I've had PS1, PS2, 360, All classic nintendos (up to the 64), sega genisis/saturn/dreamcast. I play what I enjoy and buy what I think is best. No blinde allegiance to any company. So far it looks like performance wise they will be basically even, maybe a slight advantage to PS4. And with the price diff I was leaning that way (not to mention the fear of MS re-reversing their policy decisions about digital only games, daily check in, etc.) I know they pulled back on those comments after the outrage, but who's to say they won't decide to do it in a year once they already have our money?
But then I read that CoD:Ghosts will have dedicated servers on XBox 1 and that may be enough to swing me back to XBox. I primarily game online, play very few story modes/campaigns. I also read a comment on one of the stories about the dedicated servers that said yes, Ghost will have them, but only for UNRANKED games, not ranked lobbies.
J/w if anyone else has any info on this, or what your thoughts are. And please, again, don't turn this into a Sony flaming thread. Just facts that you have come across, or your personal (non insulting) opinions would be appreciated.
The Xbox One version of Ghosts will have dedicated servers, powered by Microsoft's Azure platform. I assume they are ranked, as in, you'll get XP for participating in those.
The whole shenanigan of ranked vs unranked is on the PC, which was confirmed it'd get ranked dedicated servers and rented servers somewhere along the road. I suppose the rented servers are unranked. I don't know if unranked servers will come with admin tools.
"You could say I am…the biggest Nobody of them all."
Ghosts, Titanfall and BF4 will have dedi servers and run at 60 fps also on the One. I dont think Titanfall will be avaiable on the PS4 til 2015 or so.
ok thanks for clearing that up kanaye
And J, I've seen Titan fall mentioned a few times while researching, but don't really know much about it. I'll have to take a look at it and see what I think about it.
The developers (Respawn) of Titanfall were some of the guys the used to work for (Infinity Ward) the guys who made CoD4, one of the best CoDs according to many people.
