im pretty sure it will happen eventually.. could take a year or two after console release tho

Going from past experiences with their products, the moment right after most don't give a shit any more. Perhaps that was a MS thing though, they were very good at making sure it was long enough that the release losses almost all interest. I think it validates their marketing team "See the PC market sucks!"

Georgia the state that is going live with full on carrying open weapons in a month. 2 shootings in two Waffle Houses in 2 weeks! I always knew it was a great idea to carry guns in mass, it made sense in the wild west and it will make sense in today's PC world with social media and instant news coverage. This is just getting good.

Carlin never being wrong... "You learn nothing from history".

All these people that want to deregulate everything because they think it give freedoms. There is a very sane reason why they became regulated, but we'll get to learn this all over again. History...

Right and looking into a book with a blank stare and day-dreaming with a blank stare is better than using electronic gizmo's. I get it, they want to live in the past to.

Blah blah its very different.

Blah blah its very hard to do.

Blah blah we're looking at it closely.

You either are or you aren't. Obviously someone inside Bungie thinks it is devilishly clever just not to say it one way or the other.

Keep it if you must, we'll survive.

Agreed! I, for one, am simply appalled by the lack of sensitivity shown by the white man! All I ask is for just one single game, just one, that has a bi-racial black/asian transgendered dwarf as its main protagonist. I mean honestly, is that really too much to ask?

That's why I play RPG's with deep character building. They're out there, it isn't our fault that the mainstream only buy pop-culture games. IMO that is something they can improve on, as a critic of the media.

Personally I think Microsoft has made a fantastic contribution to PC gaming this year. By killing GFWL.

They did because there were still enough clueless producers that would continue to use it. How could they have not gotten the memo from fans? Entire marketing teams at many houses should have been gutted.

Spencer explains why Microsoft didn't bring Windows games to E3.
Not to be snarky, but Microsoft makes more money off of Xbox games than PC games. PC gaming is still a profit center for them, but when it's not the most profitable gaming business it's not going to be the center of attention.

If they never made an Xbox and only made PC games and peripherals, bottom line they would have been further ahead. But they've gone all in a long time ago, so they just trek down a path of hopefully break-even'ish.

Have to agree because why would someone choose Infusion over more popular choices today if you were actually changing engines?

I assume they feel this buys them 6+ months of slow updates.

Overall this sounds like a good idea. They need to improve quality, this will allow it and when ready they can release. The "when ready" part though needs to be adhered to.

As for if you like early access or not, if they are clear on what you are buying that is all that is ever needed. Someone can charge you a $1000 for a pinch of dirt, if they are clear and you understand what you are buying into.... well that is capitalism.

If there were like 10 or 20 a month, I could check them all out. But 70-80 a shot is kind of overwhelming.

And that is 2x a month.

Yeah, those 65 million people on Steam don't mean a thing.

You took it out of context totally.

They don't know what happens with uncapped FPS? I'll tell you what happens, higher FPS. What else would happen? Nothing is the only other option.

That's like a carpenter saying I built a closet and never opened the door, who knows what could be behind it? An astral portal? The ocean? Nope a small dark area.

Fair enough, I haven't seen a game personally, but I see it is possible. Leave it to EA.

We are getting caught up in a lot of these beta costs lately. Yeah it's a bit rich for sure and I won't be playing in those games. But the main thing is it is coming along, hopefully it will be good and we can buy it at regular costs when the time comes.

Yeah now that you mention it, "near cost" makes sense for a console where they make most of their money on games and licensing, but what revenue would Oculus get aside from hardware sales?

Oculus is now Facebook, it what would Facebook get. This thing isn't just going to be for games, like a pc. You'll be able to buy one and use it just for games. But Facebook is looking at the social aspect of this, getting their product out there they feel they can secure their position longer term.

Most people are not going to strap a TV to their face. Period.

Most people don't play PC games. I don't care about most people, that is now Facebook's problem. I'm open that this think may not work and open to that it will work. I'm not going to be Henry "Old Poop" Fonda for no good reason. I'm somewhat confident this works because there is now a lot of people, putting money down developing VR (not just Oculus) and they wouldn't be doing this if it wasn't impressive. There are thousands that have bought the dev kit, in general even with its weak specs it has bowled them over. I'm going with their word at this time over a Poo Poo'ers.

It does hit mass levels if it can be used in things that you can now do, but for a lot less being there virtually.

Taking quite a while to get to market though, but I agree with it has to be right for it to stick.

Non native resolutions looking good on a monitor has everything to do with the scaler being used. If bad, it's bad and at that point, there is no reason for many to own a 4K monitor at this time. Intel and NVidia would need to release much better HW.

320 to 1080 is one thing, the native 320 rez can only do so much.

1080 to 4K with a good scaler, will look like a native 1080 monitor. Which is still quite nice.

Anyone calling him a coward including the flat out lying Kerry. "He can tell America his side of the story" is just trying to muddy the waters with propaganda. He's in the right the NSA isn't and long term it's a slam dunk that this will be the conclusion.
