Like an endless gaming newspaper
You have reached a place where you can read what is going on behind closed doors and know the future of the game development industry. Fun to read official media outlets after we have discussed the information here sometimes years, months or weeks before.

Read comments section to every post and you will get all gaming info, videos and news in one place with great opinions and fast navigation. Its a situation where comments are even better then posts because we have a group of experts in each area and their opinions & analisys are often more interesting to read than majority of gaming media outlets(none of them tell the whole story).


All Insider info is under the "Insider Daily" header. All other analysis and topics are from blog contributors keen to reveal and enjoy console gaming.

You can follow me on twitter from the link below(new articles notifications are posted instantly).
Here is our Q&A session to understand what we do here:
1. http://misterxmedia.livejournal.com/175840.html
2. http://misterxmedia.livejournal.com/179438.html

We don't know Microsoft market strategy, The Insider is a tech guy and always believes Microsoft will show that side to public as soon as developers sample technology to other developers. His info could be up to 3 years in the future.

The insider will sometimes state in his notes and messages, that the information he has supplied will not be 100% confirmed by him or the source he gain the knowledge from. We still post unconfirmed developers rumours as there no smoke without fire in most cases.

Main idea
XBOX ONE console, was a console that was originally meant to be released at a much later date and time of 2014-15 and is 2-3x more powerful then Sony’s PS4 at mknimum.

Its full DX12+ system and it's power is not 1.31TF as Eurogamer caclulated based on wrong interpretation of docs they got and all other media repeated. Microsoft itself never told its 1.31TF console.

- Xbox One GPU is 2.6TF. Its full DX12 and is not AMD 7770 series. Its accelerated DX12. Xbox One GPU is WDDM 3.0 while first PC DX12 GPUs are WDDM 2.0.
- Other special hardware and accelerators makes it around 5TF of total power.
- Xbox One have HBM like ultra fast memory stacked on main SOC chip. PC GPUs/APUs will start to have it at the end of 2015.
- Xbox One have FPGA reprogrammable chips inside. You can program algoritms directly in hardware and the speed of execution will be 100-1000 compared to software execution on standart universal CPU.
- Xbox One DDR3 is not typical. It has 4x capabilities of standart DDR3 for every 2GB. A DDR4 prototype. This one is less talked about by Insider and along with HBM is under very strict NDA at Microsoft until DDR4 and HBM like memory will make its debut on PC GPUs in 2015.


Hunt the truth
Please be aware of lies of Sony propaganda, they over promise and under deliver. They often show CGI or in-engine first and then downgrade later. In-game looks not as good as hyped.

Here are tricks Sony use in their games to make you think PS3/PS4 is more powerful then it is
:
- Narrow corridor games with low draw distance (Uncharted, God of War, and Last of Us), that all need less power for the system to render).
- Open-world games with low draw distance, lots of fog (Infamous).
- Games with static cameras (Beyond, Heavy Rain).
- Less objects and details on screen to render, empty locations, small NPC count(GT5, The Order)

All those tricks need 30-40% less power to render.  Compare for example Uncharted which consists 95% of corridor levels and some of Halo 4 corridor levels with Night and Day.

Other tricks:
- Tech demos that combines all the tricks.  Tech demos will never filter to real games with such visuals in real time on PS hardware.
- In-engine prerenderend cut scenes with better assets they claim as real-time game play (Uncharted).
- Make image quality lower but be sure to hit 1080p.
- Say it is 60fps even if it is hit only 30% of time

3rd party or MS 1st party developers don't use those tricks as there is no need to lie to gamers and show "superiority" of the hardware. Even with the launch of Xbox One when Microsoft’s DX12 API is not ready and resolution is slightly better on PS4 and still Sony again invents new tricks to deceive and lie to its own gaming community and media outlets.

So if we see "actual game play" logo in game trailer from Microsoft - it is. If we don't see "actual game play" logo from Sony - it could be fake/downgraded or pre-rendered cut scene. Sony started to use term in-engine in their videos. Still thats not in-game and could be not running in real time on PS4 hardware.

Thank you for taking the time to read my welcome page, I hope you enjoy your stay.
Game On!

misterxmedia
Misterxmedia: Did you see that?
WOW

Insider: Yes .. modern age of remixing music .. I love it.. and the principles and view of Bruce lee are legendary beyond belief. 
Are you guys getting ready for KI3 next gen and Killer Instinct   1/2 HD and re-textured on live soon :) 
Word is Conker is coming back in a true sequel... But that is behind closed :) 


More Bruce Lee
1. How can that be possible?


From 1:45 - just unbelievable.

Insider Daily: previous post detailed
misterxmedia
Insider: ....I would like to answer to all your questions.....but....there is no 100% real answer and a very harsh level of control.

.,..dev kit is not official hardware....that is a mock target...MS not shipped this...they ship only software...100% Durango alpha api...in order to win api war...MS invested big dollars in api tools...because many people don't understand how to code on a low hardware level...so they do a job for them.......PS3 have bottlenecs - ram and gpu...PS3 has alien coding style most developers just don't get. Xbox has evolved with PC and every new development in SDK brings evolve in graphics...Skyrim is an example...PS3 gets massive strain in development times...Uncharted and Last of us puch ps3 to the limit..Xbox has the abilities to shash the competition, overdue this...but it all comes to time and money...do MS needs xbox look good later in this game compared to next gen or not...thing have changed...and this could also be changed...ive seen different next gen specs 5 time already....Ms have really gone and taken as much hardware from every known cpu/gpu tv company and 4k screens to test what could be built and sold at a price that is not ingrate for the consumer or going to fail from every day on demand connect use.

Nintendo has updated there wii u spec's a lot more then what Sony and Ms had first believed.. when the word back at e3 got around that big n had dropped the 5000 series for a 7000 series gpu both sony and ms were forced to with hold unveiling there next gen console as they both had 6000+ cores with better hybrid tech based 2nd gpus in there system.  yes both had decide to not show....

....Now the shocking thing out off all this is Ms and sony have both gone back to change things.. Sony has changed there specs in there console, While Ms have decide to change 70% of the gpu/cpu specs.. And now the so called "bad news" ms will most likely not have to delay the 720 past September 2013.. I know there is a 8 weeks trial and there is all the top engineers working day and night to get the wafers tuned to a usable specs in the fab facility. now the new chip is an absolute monster....


20nm wafer yields will only be for the main gpu.. the cpu/apu will be biased heavily on Richland specs.  so yes x86 cpu cores now officially  8 core 4 threads per core ... The original 360 soc compatibility chip has been dropped as the 8000+ will be extremely powerful... so forward compatibility via emulation is going to look amazing. and the extra costs have been put towards the upgrade.  But on the down side ram maybe downgraded from 8gig to 6 gig. As sony are now only shipping with 4gig and wii-u 2gig but even this could change..  This is info circulating around...and we can not be 100% sure...It is extremely powerful for a console.....And I think it would have to be clocked very low in clocks due to heat issues and power consumption. But the big question is do I believe it "YES" it makes sense to do this.....

Misterx: 1. how much more power full xbox next now compared to sony?

2. So MS they changed their plans and wasted 1 billion dollar on canned architecture?



Insider Daily: Nintendo forced MS and Sony to change their specs
misterxmedia
Insider: ......

.....

.....

Don't put it on your blog please, but you can use main things:

8000+ gnc 2.0 "Venus XTX" based gpu 20mn
8 core Richland x86 cpu With 8000 core series hd apu 28nm
8 or 6 gig of ram
Reports are 4.00+ TFLOP of graphics processing power.
Misterx: ok, by my own words:

- Next xbox x86 officially
- Next xbox will be 4T+ in power. 5T reports are true.
- Next xbox will have 8 to 6 gigs of ram. Sony now target 4gb.
- Sony and MS had phone calls not to put next gen at E3 in order to delay it and make Nin look absolete. after Nintendo  changed their 5000 specs to 7000 series specs.
- MS changed 70% of their gpu/cpu design recently after that.
- MS should not delay xbox next
- Next xbox will be a moster for a console. the price should be around $450 but that is not a fact for now.

Summer Insider: It is a time to move on to a...subscrition based services
misterxmedia
Insider: There is so much hardware testing going on right now... Its been locked down the last month because a user decide to try and sell an early dev kit "PC SPEC ONLY". Ms has been scanning every email all new NDA's are in place for nay first party and some 3rd party developers.  The subscription model is a fantastic idea.. Its what google/asus did with the Nexus 7 tablet..  Subside the cost of hardware via software sales. Very angry with the greedy Company's that want to keep software and hardware developing so they can sell old software models to the public.. which will go the way of the dinosaur if they don't learn to adapt...  So if you purchase a console for 199$ and subscribe for 2 years @ 15$ a month you get live for free... the new model of  live will have a 10% increase every month.. But before people start screaming there heads off in rage.. The new model will have games for free every month so 4 games a month and 8 movies is add to the value. Its a better deal then both sony and big n are trying to do.  As for hardware the 720 durango specs are 12/18x xbox360 that is the figure they are aiming for.. Really 10x would be  enough and then live could stream better grahics to hardware like could based gaming by 2015/16.. you wouldn't need a new console.


Summer Insider: Will Epic get what they want? xbox720 = 18x360 power? But will that from the start?
misterxmedia

Misterxmedia: Here is a question from out readers :)

"so there wll be windows 8 surface
but also there will be xbox branded surface to be used with xbox next

so if they choose amd 64, ther will be still 8 core with 2 of them  16 core
or what ?
and what about thread , with 16 core x 4 thread there will be 64 thread
what about with amd 64, still have 64 thread in xbox next
reduce in performance or still targetting the same as ppc"
Инсайдер:
soon :)

3 days later

Insider http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2012/07/will-there-be-multiple-versions-of-the-next-xbox/     This is the console that is going forward.. Epic's design spec.. 18X xbox360

Misterxmedia: So, what will be use case scenarios for end user? Pay 200usd every 2 years in order to take latest version of hardware? And Xbox live will be free inside thouse 2 years contracts?


Insider Daily.Xbox Tablet or Xbox Next?2010 powerpoint is outdated-Next xbox is 12++++ power of 360
misterxmedia
Misterxmedia: Will 1 gpu match hd8970 perfomance or what will do 2 gpus combined?
Инсайдер:
cpu/apu + gpu will reach hd8970 performance levels.. There will be over heads at the start but compared to the wiiu over heads its about 20%.... I ant 100% sure what's going on Monday with Ms our high up dev is all smiles and is chatting more then lately. I would be think next gen hardware announcement really it could happen there was so much stuff on show back stage at E3 they could easily lunch a  console within 6 month like I have been saying for the last 12 months. There are so many 3rd party dev's with 100% support for pet name 720 :) every studio developer have code names for the durango hardware's. And yes unreal engine 4 runs on it and with ease. 

Nice vista also.. a bit gray sort of like unreal engine 3 :)
Misterxmedia: so system with 2cpu and 2gpu will be hd8970 level? Or will be 2xhd8970 level? I think me will annoUnce tablet...but bad NPD this month...so maybe and even next xbox. Also I don't get how it is possible to change from PPC CPU to amd 64 that late and even without spec change as you said... What about Sony..will they ship ps4?:)

Инсайдер:
The final changes of core cpu.. will not effect the sdk.. as x64 is already in Assembly.....  

Iv heard the reason they may change is because they want a better level of security,  Arm cortex  is better for a hyper vizor  based security. And the Amd apu can have an on chip arm with out using cpu cores.  1080p @ 12o fps  but 4k via upscale chip when the tvs are available. No console will do 4k native render next gen. It could be possible for 2k render but you would lose 40% of peak performance, games would still look better then ps3/360 buy a long shot.

And yes I have been told, It could be the new tab getting announced Monday, or Ms have purchased a large segment of apple :)

I think next gen..

Misterxmedia: How old is that presentation? Looks messed and outdated.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/92821757/XBox-720-9-24-Checkpoint-Draft-1

I don't get about priceing - 299$ for xTV version or it will be main xbox and there will not be more powerfull version?
Инсайдер:
Old Document... Way way more powerfull .. That was an internal guide. But board lay out is 100% real. but the 3x xenos is not in the unit that I have seen that was cut Bc will be done by main cpu. It was cut to save costs, and these cost have allowed MS to add more cores to system and better main gpu specs and faster apu and more dd4 to 8gig.. it will all so be possible to add more to this console because it will have pci3 specs.. as not every body in 2017 will have fast internet so retail games will still be sold.  I would expect more information to arrive over the next few hours. There is an updated Documents out there on the internet a lot of developer were given them with the new specs and lunch window @ e3.  The system is A monster, @ e3 there we developers talking about peck performance will be higher then first thought.. I heard some insane number way above 12X I ant going to repeat it as I don't want to theory of what is and isn't and be quoted for it. They have 450w head room on this console. Its expectations have exceeded everybody that has seen it and have sdk's 

Инсайдер: I just checked the documents link you gave me.. only some of that is real.. a fear bit is not.. the board picture is real tho but it has massive changes in specs.  There is other documents you should look for there out their

Инсайдер: http://www.shifted2u.com/shifted/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1950:xbox-surface-details&catid=46:gaming&Itemid=138

First party Devs are say this is the new portable xbox   .. I can say iv seen this... and yes its real very real..  and 720 games will be able to run on this with out streaming tech they look as good but 100X better then what vita can do and wii u... enjoy
Инсайдер:And before every body quotes the specs they are fake on that cheat sheet ... The specs are still amazing I wish I could say more :(

Misterxmedia: Wow that what announsment will be about today? Great specs!!
Инсайдер:
No the specs are not 100% real they are very close in some regards but not the same ... still I am 80/20 /Ms will announce this today its so tight lipped but we know its portable and xbox gaming will be a massive part of this device I cant say any thing more ...   :0

Инсайдер: Ms have every thing locked down //.... no pics no press is aloud near the venue.. Something big is coming.. This could be the one

Инсайдер: Other people are now saying it is the next gen xbox console ..  It could be a tablet and new console.. There is so much talk going on behind the public eyes. There has been talk about the Cryteck and unreal guys are going.. so is rockstar and a few other dev. some of our managers are heading there.

Misterxmedia: Wow, great!


Insider Daily. Post E3 2012, 8 gigs of ram for next xbox again, 2xHD9870 explained
misterxmedia
Misterxmedia: Great gfx for Dogs and seems like a game not bad too...

Blown away by forza..that is what I allwsys wanted..seems like devs will do it perfect...where Xbox got all this juce....:D Fuck blind people who dowgrade MS conference...halo4 and forza wtf

Insider:
Yes forza and Halo 4 they are pushing graphic boundary's.. Those textures are all direct x 10.1/11 stream in.. The thing about e3 is, That most the internet uses are getting to see these games in low quality streams. It does not do the game Justis.  I wont go on record but there is still around 30% in xbox performance.  Well I have seen unreal 4 running on xbox360 it was only debug tho and will never see any games on it, But it did run the core elements demo at 25fps @ 720p I am sure it was getting upscale also. But next to durango it was like ps1 to xbox.  Demoing this live would only make the 360 look Bad. I was at Sony conference, Highly disappointed God of war just looks like God of war from 3 years ago.. The last of us I got to sample that later and the game just feels like uncharted which is a good thing, But whats it tells me.. They talked up how good there studio and how Manny of the creative minds they have but still a 12min demo from David cage will end up on ps4.The fighting game was a rip off of Nintendo smash bros.. And it didn't look that good  the back grounds all looked low res.  And Vita I just felt terrible for owning one original game WTF. The word back stage is there really going broke.  It is a shame and Farcry 3 looks shit on ps3 low blurry textures every where, Its how I in visioned a fps on Nintendo 64, :) well that was a bit harsh.. I just feel that if MS had of shown one demo of Durango it wouldn't have hurt there sales, If any thing it would have boosted there sales , Cos they would have been labeled as the show that one e3 and face it does help sale consoles.  All I can say is its worth the wait its only going to be 12 months I think after Epic demo there unreal 4 on unannounced hardware :)  I think Durango is going to unveiled @ epics conference make sure you get to watch on line.. :)   

@nintendo... ZZZZzzzz   ZZZzzzzzzzz Nintendo r.i.p 2012

Misterxmeia: i don't care about Nintendo...they know they are for kids have nothing for core gamers. They are in stone age with their 3d tech.

What the fuck that Agni Philosophy? CGI render? May day call of all japan game industry? Demo looked better then ue4 but that can not be possible because japan 3d tech is inferior...cheaters?
Insider
: Unreal engine 4,  is only a real time demo of shaders lighting, particle and large renders with real time lighting and shades. 45x af and 24 x AA tessellation.. The squire soft demo is amazing but it is not as important as Unreal engine 4. The engine is way beyond squires tech. Don't be fooled by cgi real time renders, Japanes developers 'SONY' They love this stuff a target video is not what you will see in the end. Unreal4 and cryengine 3+ are more important for this industry, As they will enhance the market.

There tools are a lot easier to develop :)

Misterxmedia: I hate liars!! Hope Japan(Sony) devs will loose everything soon.

Well everything is fine for my future tv intertament with Xbox Next so far...as an older gamer I wish to race and play interesting interactive movie like experience....1 shooter in a year will be enough for me...

People don't understand how 2 8xxxx series you can feet in console and doubt this very high...

what a surprise will they have...also..Are Sony really going 2gigs of ram and change their strategy to a much later ps4 release? Can they not release ps4 at all?

Been 3 days near Arctic Circle...some nice vistas in attachment
Insider: Now I need to clear something up before the none believers call fake on gpu specs.. When I said HD8970 I did not mean they were putting a 8970 gpu in Durango. What  I was saying is the apu plus the costume hd8000 gpu will let the console reach performance levels of the HD8970.  HD8970 is 30/50% more power then the 7970. Also if people think this is not possible don't kid your self's, this is what really is going on, Also Ms are also considering a powerpc chip with apu or a 64bit Amd apu but this will come down to cost assumption vs sale price.  The talk at e3 is that the Amd 64x apu rumor is very true,  But the dev kit that were at e3 had 12gig of ram and only had Powerpc based parts.  Final hardware will defiantly have 8gig of DDr5 ram. So at this point in time the only thing that can change over the next 8 months is the core cpu. The apu and gpu will stay the same and the ram "8gig of ddr5" will stay the same. Also the cpu component will stay the same by specs . Only thing that can change is the cpu "core specs"  also Bluray drives will ship with final hardware.     

Misterxmedia: Will 1 gpu match hd8970 perfomance or what will do 2 gpus combined?


Insider Daily. Watch Dogs is a next gen project. Ubisoft lied
misterxmedia
Инсайдер: A friend just sent this.. its running on wii u ... Iv seen the durango version its better

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcMRkyoHKeA

I just got word from a ubisoft dev that was an early build they showed back at gdc behind closed door.. That was durango.. Not just that they had to scale back the effects as it was just ported to the final xbox durango sdk a week ago, And it had no optimization. Not just that Ms gave them the right to show it... its not exclusive as a wii u version is also worked on..

ubisoft/MS showed next gen before Sony's conference I think 7th is going to be fun.. I guess they wanted to have a presents on stage with out actual destroying the 360 last image.... I all ways thought it looked unreal 3.99 :)

http://dotconnexion.ubi.com 

I just spoke to dev @ UB and they are telling people that watch dog was running on 360/ps3 ... There is a few angry people at E3 this year. This game is not running on this gens hardware... Epic are angry I think... :) I don't half blame them.


Insider Daily. X-engine. Finaly. IF Sony will show PS4 MS will show next gen demos
misterxmedia
Misterxmedia: Well, i liked what i saw. But fans are a little angry..don't know what they want....Halo 4 is just incredible...X-engine..Finaly. :)
Инсайдер:
I can understand Iv heard it for the last 10 min.. But every body's walking around here like why the hell didn't they put 10sec up of this next gen demo's.. But If they did, They would have trouble  selling games on 360. But the word is the big suits at Ms are hearing what fans are saying, There main concern is ps4, And that's 100% it is cos who ever goes forward has to be better then wii u and the next console specs that follow.  I am putting my money on durango.. Sony don't have the financials to put 8 gig in there next console  sorry its the truth the vita is the cost why..  And also the fact that MS ant letting any sony devs in behind stage.. there is security here and they on to who's who, Lets hope sony show ps4 finger crossed :)

I just got told that MS just killed them salves on stage or killed the 360 off so it was put..

 But The halo 4 and forza horizon were the star's of the show... But were in an La developer conference " hotel Room " :)  There is a lot of next gen game "Demos" on display,

Yes Durango hardware is running a re tooled Mw4 demo mind blowing.

Also there is some Sony devs here there talking up a possible showing of ps4 @ sony conference later today...

If That happens All the Microsoft PR guys are talking up Epic's conference as the first public displaying of next gen xbox hardware running developer demos,

 I Think Ms should have showed stuff on stage but That is the final e3 for 360 being the main focus of e3 for future events... But then again cant say I am highly blown away buy wii u graphics so far .. The majority look like mii's stages based games apart from Mario and Zelda :( . But the Nintendo door ant open yet lets hope they look better or sony could take the show .. Which I really hope not.. But my heart hopes they show ps4 .. cos it means come 7th you will see durango Ms will have to show there hands.. And as for Nintendo and there Nintendo pre direct show, Which ripped of both ps3 and xbox control, There is a lot of talk about how  pissed MS/Sony  are it is a bit rude.
