Looks less cluttered with your most recently played games listed on the home screen, I like the notes from developers next to the games, good to see party stuff is no longer an app and has been moved to the OS level, and Cortana looks useful with voice commands using natural language rather than just set commands, and being able to string multiple commands together in one sentence.

I just caught this conference over on YouTube, and I'm sad to say that almost nothing in it grabbed me and got me excited. The new Gears looks Gearsy, Halo looks Haloy, Fable looks Fabley... you get the picture. Same old same old. The Fallout demo seemed far more lifeless than at the Bethesda event (holy gooseberry fool was that a nice little conference!), Ubisoft's games seemed dull as dishwater, yadda yadda. There were lots of games, but most were predictable and uninteresting. The Rare collection thing, however, that seems okay, but I probably wouldn't venture beyond Perfect Dark anyway. Sea of Thieves looked alright too, sort of midway between Wind Waker and Black Flag, with plenty of Pirates of the Caribbean thrown in. That said, as I refuse to pay to play online, it's not an experience I'm likely to be able to take advantage of. And that's assuming I have an Xbone, which I don't, and have seen little to change that view around thus far.

The only two games that got my attention were Ion, from the creator of DayZ, and Tacoma, which continues to intrigue me. However, without seeing anything much of either, it's very hard to get excited. Next year, maybe? Or at Sony or the PC games events?

The HoloLens tech demo was fantastic, just amazing. I'm not into Minecraft, but holy hell, that was the best AR experience I think I've ever seen! I hope it's able to do things elsewhere in the world, like display things around my home. If it's that versatile, maybe we can get a Micro Machines HL game to play?

So, in summary: The big games didn't wow me, a couple of the little ones interested me but were barely in evidence, Rare's piratical game looks alright, and the HoloLens kicks arse.

5/10
Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Direct conversion price over here including tax would be around £115...for a controller. They've got to be joking.


Not at all surprising. A top line gaming mouse would set you back something similar.


No.

A Keyboard perhaps, but not a mouse, unless you want to burn money. Really top quality gaming mouse can be had for £50.


A really top quality mouse? nah, a decent mouse maybe but not a really top quality one. Same argument can be said for your 'Keyboard'. You can get a decent keyboard for £50 too, doesn't make it "really top quality".

I can see why MS are charging so much for the pad.

Don't know where you are looking but I had a look nowhere I could see recommended any gaming mice above around £50.

If you want a good quality mechanical keyboard though it'll set you back around £100. But a fully mechanically switched keyboard is a different proposition altogether than a gamepad or mouse.

You must have done some selective looking. One of the top rated gaming mice, the G602 is £69.99 (http://gaming.logitech.com/en-gb/produc ... ming-mouse) and there are plenty more. You can of course get a cheaper mouse, same with any accessory but if you want a top end product and are wiling to pay that bit more it can be worth it.

I'm not saying this "elite" controller will be instantly better than your average, cheaper pad, but I can see the market they're aiming for.

Anyway, I've proved my point.


:lol: :lol:

Wireless gaming mouse.

Yeah right.

EDIT - Also that mouse is widely available for under £60. The much better wired G502 is £45 (and that's the mouse I have, its awesome).

Kudo Tsunoda and Phil Spencer on Giant Bomb Live is pretty great. Gerstmann even straight up asks them "What's it gonna take for games to stop shipping in a semi-broken state."

Probably done more than anything at their conference to make me want an Xbox One.



Starts at about 3h10m.

It's valued at £69.99 though. How much cheaper you can get it for doesn't take away from the fact that it's worth more. Hence my point about getting a really great mouse for over £50.
