    @1, yup, but anyone else note that some of them were using X1 controllers on PC? Or did I imagine that and its actually 360 ones?

    @3

    But this proves new Xbox 1 pads will work on PC. I wonder if it has trigger feedback like the Xbone?

    @2

    Def Xbone pads

    Ah Ha, rechecked the vid. Confirmed they’re coming to PC woo! The Guide button is higher, controller definitely X1. Awesome, who needs internet sleuths!

    @7 If that building can be destroyed on current gen I am going to eat my hat.

    @8, something tells me that its a triggered event rather than destruction. It’ll probably just look terrible on current gen but possible.

    @8, 9

    I wonder how many players will be possible on ‘next gen’?

    That’s the deal breaker for me. I really like the Xbox one. But if that skyscraper don’t fall on xb1. I’ll be a pc noob for life. Just to blow it up haha

    @10 I would imagine it shouldn’t be a problem with the specs of the new hardware.

    @10, 11.

    Yeah definitely possible on next-gen, I’d most likely expect 1080p @ 30fps or possibly 720p @ 60fps. But either way that goddamn building will fall. And no reason why there won’t be 64 players on next-gen.

    Before the PC crowd comes in here, yes it’ll look better on PC blah, blah, blah. :)

    I think they said it was 60fps at the MS conference, although they didn’t say 1080p or 720p?

    I hope they do 64 players, after watching the demo it would look pretty sparse without!

    Official trailer / MP footage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3nJY7n8KaOY

    In the end of trailer we can see:

    1. New location of flag after skyscraper has fallen

    2. That game now contains counter-knifing. Enemy going to stab you into face? Kill sucker with hes own knife.

    Edit: @14 60 FPS, no mention of resolution. I think they confirmed 64p for next-gen.

    There will be 64 players on consoles that is 100%.
    But after they reveal singleplayer demo and said its 60 fps so that also means that its applied for MP ?

    @14,

    My stream was messing up during the MS conference didn’t realise, yep quick google search confirms 60fps, thank goodness :), and also 64 players on console too :P.

    I’d imagine 720p upscaled.

    @15, yep just as I thought its a triggered event.
