Interview with Major Nelson

Interview with Major Nelson

Thanks to Microsoft and the Community Network, we got access to an interesting interview, together with other Xbox fansites, with Major Nelson that took place during the GC. Read more about XNA, HD-DVD, bigger harddrive, TV Shows and more inside.

Good interview, seems like a decent bloke who really enjoys his job. He certainly doesn't have to maintain his blog like he does, the amount of morons that post comments would have put me off within days!

"As for Sony, I’m really surprised that there were no playable demos on show. We’re getting pretty close to launch for that console, so it was strange not to see anything playable. That’s sending a message. And that’s pretty much all I can say about that…"

Not long after that interview Sony announced the European delay, I assume multiplatofrm developers had shared the information with him!

Major Nelson owns. I really think they should just go 'surprise' at X06 and announce an 80GB harddrive.

Major is a cool guy, and seems more down to earth then many Sony PR people. Also even if the whole nice image that MS has going on with their PR is a ruse they are still doing a great job. When a company gets arrogant.... well we know what kind of reaction that gets.

Did it grind a disc when he did that? Seriously you're not supposed to do that with a game in it, otherwise grind city. But yeah good interview, seems to genuinely like what he does.

I hope there will be gamma control in dashboard, i truly hope there will be gamma control... i m dead tired of games unplayable because they lack that in their options menus and DVDs i can t watch because they are too dark when played with the console.

About the game

    droezelke @Sdarts: oh, i didn't know about the app. But I know that it's their way to go against piracy. (31 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts For 1080p, you need the "4220", "5400" or higher Video Bitrate options. It's a very well know restriction that has been like this for many years. You can Google about it if you want. (12 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts But shows like Orange is the New Black, Iron Fist, and a few others I tried this time around only have the "2740" or "3000" Video Bitrate options, meaning 720p resolution. (12 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts If you need to check what resolution you're getting, just press "Ctrl + Alt + Shift + D" for the A/V Stats screen to come up. You can override/force quality with "Ctrl + Alt + Shift + S". (12 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts The only way to watch in 1080p is to use Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Safari, consoles (like PS4 and XB1), and smart TVs. Everything else you're restricted to 720p. (12 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Like .mp4, .mkv, etc. Also, even if you don't download, you still can't stream above 720p. This isn't possible even in Netflix's own official app. Nor on Firefox or Google Chrome. (12 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @droezelke: The files you download through the Windows 10 Netflix app are encrypted, you can't even watch them with VLC, Media Player Classic or Windows Media Player. They don't even have a format. (12 Hours ago)
