Personally i always get almost motion sick looking at tv's with the 120/240 options set on. Just doesnt look natural to me and i can notice slight 'jerkyness' from it as well. I have a pretty expensive samsung tv and its infinitely better with the function off and running at standard 60hz.
I didn't even know that could be changed! I guess I'll figure out soon enough though. I'm also looking at Samsung or Vizio.. both have good reviews.

Its different with tv's then it is with say monitors. With tv's its making up frames that dont exist and 'guessing' what frame will come next. I suppose its possible that maybe 240 is more accurate then 120 in that its guessing more and quicker. For me though thats the first feature i turn off with any tv.
Yeah, I was trying to find some more info online and most sites say that there's not enough difference to justify going with 240. I'll just go with a 120hz because it's cheaper and stores are having better Black Friday discounts on those.

I know this is kinda OT, but does anyone notice screen blurring when playing games on a 120hz TV? I heard 240hz is better because fast movement is sharper but those TVs are several hundred dollars more than 120hz (well, at least on the size I'm looking for). I hope to find a good one tomorrow and don't want to spend more for something that isn't really noticeable..

9. Re: Changing a PS4 hard drive makes it faster- default, hybrid & SSD tested Nov 26, 2013, 13:09 John
 
Anyone here try that yet? I wouldn't put a SSD in mine because they're still too expensive for high capacity but maybe a regular one with a faster read/write speeds.

Does the new Xbox also have one of those power bricks like the old ones?

It has a huge power brick, yes.
So the Xbox One console is significantly bigger than the PS4, has a huge power brick, and is less powerful than the PS4? Nice..

A HL3 announcement would have been a nice 15th anniversary surprise for us! Oh well, maybe on the 20th anniversary..

I think the original HL was my favorite game until HL2 came out. Still waiting for HL3 or HL2:Ep3...

It's a shame that Valve barely develops any games these days, though what they've done with Steam has redefined PC gaming.
Yeah, you'd think they would be able to afford to hire more people to work on games too!

I'm hoping that, now that amazon has a store front selling PS codes, we'll see those kind of discounts from them, as well.

Yeah, I've seen them sell Xbox Gold subscriptions for less before so they should do the same with PS+.

Verno wrote on Nov 18, 2013, 12:29:
Moving on, I got a buy 2 get 1 free game deal with my PS4 and so I foolishly picked Battlefield 4 as my third title. Wow what a broken piece of shit this game is, Conquest mode doesn't even appear to work and I've seen multiple server crashes in under an hour. That's what I get for giving console FPS a chance again.
Hows the single-player campaign?

Maybe that survivor 2299 site isn't fake after all.

thesurvivor2299.com


Is there supposed to be a 24-day countdown on that site?


=-Rigs-=

I'm going to try to translate that Morse Code when I get some time.
What Morse code? All I see is the countdown..

My Fallout 3 experience:

Played through, game save was corrupted and unrecoverable right outside the final showdown.

My Fallout NV experience:

Played through, game corrupted at the zombie rocket mission (about 60 hours through, I had a lot of mods...), crashing and unrecoverable on top of Hoover Damn near the final fight.
That's why I always have multiple saves when I play RPGs.. I stagger at least 3 saves so if the latest one is corrupt, I can load the previous one and not lose too much play time. I had a similar experience before where I was 50+ hours into a RPG and died, but couldn't reload the save game because it was corrupt. Ever since then I have done multiple saves.

This is also good if the latest save is either in a location you can't get out of or somewhere that you're about to die.. I've had that happen before too. It sucks when you die and reload the last save only to die again without being able to do anything about it!

The controller battery life is really short compared to the old ones ,but that must be the light...
Yeah, that light is pretty bright. I wonder if turning it off while in a game would help battery life at all. It doesn't really need to be on unless you have the camera and play a game that uses it.

Well I was going to give my PS4 a try last night but the update took forever to download! Their servers must have been really slammed or something because it shouldn't have taken so long. It took over an hour for the 324mb file to dl..

And while I was waiting for it to finish, I fell asleep watching tv and by the time I woke up I had to get to bed! Oh well, I'll try again tonight.

Assassin's Creed 4 PS4 update will upgrade resolution from 900p to 1080p.

That's an odd resolution. Glad they will have an update for it!

Speaking of updates, how big is the firmware update for the PS4?
