Story has me confused he talks up 4K but is using a 1440P monitor.

"Asus’ latest 4K monitor, the PB287Q" - It's not 4K.

I did a search and another article is talking about this model being 4K. But both Amazon and New Egg have this monitor at 1440P.

ASUS PB287Q, LED-Monitor
3840x2160 Pixel
699€

You look at the wrong stores ,)

And if you were really curious.. well there is the official site
https://www.asus.com/Monitors_Projectors/PB287Q/

I figured something was up, what happens when I searched is both those places took me to 278 vs 287, no heads up or nothing. So it was in details. Thanks for clearing that up for me. (Yep Beamer)

Prince of Persia, Assasin's Creed, or Titanfall style wall walking and terrain traversal would have been (and might still be?) revolutionary in MMOs. Climbing some ladders (AoC), Flying Mounts (WoW), or wings (Aeon) are all implemented to give greater mobility....but I'd love to see truly interactive terrain ala EQL via grappling hooks or the like.

The Superhero MMO's all have things like this, so much for the revolution.

Quite a list of recent hires...

Holtman is one of the more high-profile hires at Oculus, but he's far from alone. In fact, the company has been on a real tear lately, picking up personnel from Valve, Google, Electronic Arts, 343 Studios, id Software, Bungie and several others. At least 17 have joined up just since March:

Neil Konzen, former engineer at Valve and one of the original Microsoft employees
Brian Hook, former engineer at RAD (Telemetry) and the original author of 3Dfx Glide
Adrian Wong, former lead systems engineer at Google[x] (Glass)
Ian Field, former engineer at ARM and co-inventor of Cortex-M
Raul Corella, former head of supply chain at JawBone, Monster, and Leap Motion
Laura Fryer, former GM of Epic Seattle and WB Seattle
Paul Pedriana, former lead engineer at EA
David Moore, former engineer at RAD (Granny)
Kenneth Scott, former art director at 343 Studios (Halo 4)
Seneca Menard, former technical artist at id Software
Paul Pepera, former environment artist at Valve and 343 Studios
Brian Sharp, former engineer at Bungie
Aaron Nicholls, former engineer at Valve, 343 Studios, and Microsoft
Matt Alderman, former engineer at Valve and ArenaNet
Cass Everitt, former GPU architect and engineer at Nvidia
Ross O’Dwyer, former at head of development support at Havok
Douglas Lanman, former research scientist at Nvidia Research and MIT Media Lab

Other big-name executives at Oculus include id Software co-founder John Carmack, Quake and Half-Life developer Michael Abrash and former EA Vice President David DeMartini, the man who became famous in 2012 for saying that Steam sales cheapen intellectual property.

Yeah those words never would come out of a game designer or developer. Just front office suits. They should know better than ever trying to sell entertainment with such business words.

Someone has never been to GDC.

True. Sad though, but there's all types, plenty of games I play, I'm sure those words are never said.

Videocards already have DDR5 on them. I agree system ram has been over-hyped, just was willing to see what the diff was with DDR4 system memory and got a big blank with this article. "Dramatically Boosts Gaming Performance" and nothing, golf clap.

He's buying high bitrate audio/video and then ripping to a lower bitrate (thus taking 25-40+ gig of data down to 5 gig)? Might as well stick with dvds if you're going to do that...

That's like buying a cd and then making 128 mp3s out of it...

Yep the videophiles are going nutso because streaming etc is destroying the finer details in which they are all about.

To me blu-ray discs didn't even exist until I knew for a fact that I could rip them. Discs... Discs are so 19th century. I rip my bought blurays to 1080p h.264 encodes sized about 5gb and have them sit on my NAS and stream them to my TV.. the future!.. And the future does not involve discs if I can help it

But wait, you are still buying/renting the disc to begin with. I can't see how you see buying a BR and using a player as archaic, you have to buy/rip/keep storage/make sure it's all working, etc. Not that what you do is a bad, but I see a very healthy counterpoint of someone just buying the disc and using a player. Simple.

Nothing in there shows any game boost performance. It talks about memory boosts, but we'll have to wait and see what it really means in real world gaming.

Welcome to the 1980s!

China has owned us for a very long time, and they have so thoroughly rooted our networks for more than a decade that the flip of a switch is the only step remaining.

They represent 1.3 trillion of a 17 trillion debt.

I hope and pray they flip the switch, it will be a huge win for the american worker. Flip it, we'll flip them off on the debt, jobs will instantly be needed in the states. Do it, because we should have never farmed out to commies in the first place. That was the whole reason not to do business with them. The Gov't was right on this one, but industry won out, cheap labor at the cost of our own.

Hey, It's all good! You keep on supporting the cunts on your site Blue!

Sincerely Fuck you.

Tyrant. Like we aren't allowed to have our own opinions. Look at yourself first, improve and then come back. I didn't get to read your removed comments, but if what I write hurts, too bad. I'm a critic and I don't give any game/genre a free pass.

We very well could be jaded gamers, the industry was somewhat like this prior to FPS/Mouselook. We get bored with the same ole. Quality VR can't get here fast enough.

I'd be all over 4K if....

Intel and NVidia could make HW to blast through 4K rez's with no sweat at a combined $600 between the two.

I wouldn't care about the TV end of it.

Everybody cares? Which is why this like countless products before it will fail in short order?

Yeah, that's why Blizzard has made an entire career doing this very thing. Nothing new, and doing it well.

Maybe you should consider getting off your lawn chair, and taking the red pill and wake up. Or have you become so old and jaded, you just prefer to bitch about everything video games, and not enjoy one of them?

I bitch extra loud at MMO's doing the same thing over and over. There is literally 1000 MMO's, most end up being way way too similar and grinding pastures sucks ass to me anymore. At least things like EQ Next and a few others are working toward building and creating user communities.

Hell I don't feel bad about it, going to MMO centric web sites, that is the main plea from the overall user base. Now are there exceptions? Certainly. Still many thousands love MMO's, but a lot I think it is fair to say have been turned off by the lack of anything different happening.

Well please ask questions and let us answer...

Does it do anything new? No. (You agree)

Who cares? I do, for me to play a MMO it now has to do something very new.

Is it fun? Lots of games are. Most are less than $60/$15.

Fun isn't hard to find these days in video games. Something new definitely is hard to find in MMO's. Something new isn't hard to find in the Indy scene at under $25.

One noted that this has been in the oven for 9 years, get that. But I can only judge based on where we are now at release.

I like how these peasants see a screenshot and immediately dismiss it as a WoW clone. It plays nothing like WoW. Peasants.

There going to need the peasants dollars, the nobles are out banging chicks not playing video games.
