Hey guys, I'll be dropping my N4G persona for a little bit to talk about the BGS, the biggest gaming expo in South America.
I went there today (I couldn't stay for too long because my foot is injured), played with some next-gen games and I'm here to give my impressions.
First I was a little bit shocked by how big the difference between the PS4 and Xbox One stands were. Xbox stand was easily the biggest stand in the whole show, and it made a big difference.
The stand had all launch Xbox One games for you to play. I played just some of them. RYSE
: In my opinion the prettiest game in the whole show, and one of the prettiest games I've seen. The gameplay is very smooth and the sound of the game is amazing. One thing that had me worried was the frame rate drops. I've seen the game drop to single digits in more than one occasion. Let's hope this will be fixed. FORZA 5 I was very impressed with the game's graphics and controls. A very noticeable jump from Forza 4. The game was running at 60fps all the times. Kinect Sports Rivals: I didn't have the chance to play it, but I saw a woman playing with the Kinect and recorded a little bit. The Kinect itself had little input lag, and I was impressed by it.
The Xbox One is way, way smaller than what I've thought.
And yes, all games were running on the Xbox One, no Nvidia PCs around.
I spent little time on the Sony booth but I saw both Drive Club and Killzone up close. Driveclub I was disappointed by this game. The graphics weren't very good and the game had a serious aliasing problem. The gameplay was a mix between arcade and simulator. It's very fun to play.
Killzone The second prettiest game on the show in my opinion (one of the pretties FPSs I've ever seen too) I was very impressed by its graphics and steady framerate. The people on the show seemed to be enjoying the game too.
I also took a bunch of images and I'm sharing them with you guys:
(Nintendo was nowhere to be seen) RYSE MAIN MENU MASERATI CAR ON XBOX STAND (THEY ACTUALLY TURNED ON A COUPLE OF TIMES, EACH TIME ATTRACTING A HUGE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE) XBOX ONE - MADE IN BRAZIL (SLIGHT JAB AT SONY PERHAPS?) ACTIVISON STAND HAD THE BIGGEST CONCENTRATION OF KIDS IN THE SHOW GRAN TURISMO 6 HAD THIS SLS IN IT (THIS WAS OUTSIDE SONY BOOTH THIS IS WHY I DIDN'T MENTION IT BACK THERE) THEY WERE HAVING A HEATHSTONE TOURNAMENT THERE TOO, CROWD WASN'T AS PUMPED AS THE LOL TOURNAMENT ONE BUT STILL HAD SOME FUN. DIABLO 3 FOR CONSOLES WAS THERE TOO FORMULA 1 CAR WITH NEED FOR SPEED RIVALS THE CROWD WAS GOING WILD WITH THE LEAGUE OF LEGENDS TOURNAMENT, EASILY THE MOST VIBRANT CROWD IN THE WHOLE SHOW XBOX ONE BUS SITTING OUTSIDE THE CONVENTION CENTER Other games that I forgot to take a pic: Battlefield 4, Watch_Dogs, bunch of PSVITA and PSMOVE games, some Korean games, and probably much more. My feet was killing me so I had to go away. I hope you guys enjoyed.
