It's too expensive, might as well just buy a convertible laptop. And if you just want a tablet to e-read and consume video on there are much cheaper options.

Windows RT was a huge mistake as well, guess they didn't learn anything from the failure of Windows NT for RISC systems.

This.

For the same money, I'd rather have a real ultrabook, or a better laptop with better battery life, than a tablet that comes with a shit detachable keyboard.

For quick internet surfing / youtubing... my 3 year old iPad does fine... and was much cheaper. (the irony of that is kind of funny since everyone likes to squawk about Apple's prices)

Haven't bought an Epic game since UT2003.

Other than the original Unreal and Unreal Tournament... I can't think of a game they made that was worth a shit.

So, regardless of Cliffy's douchebag PC comments from the past... he's got a lot more to prove than just changing his rhetoric.

I never cared for it. Was bored to death by level 10... trudged through level 40 something hoping it would get better, quit and never looked back.

That said... I'm still having a blast in ESO. I guess I'm a "niche" MMO player instead of a "for the masses" one.

They are thrilled to stick it to their previous creditors by bankrupting one company for protection and then forming another (then they can bankrupt that as well... perpetual credit).

Ok, I wasn't looking at the total... I was looking at the total each by comparison.

I stand corrected.

I don't think stupidity has as much to do with it as you imply...

Well, we found part of the minority... (should be 33% and 25% respectively)

Check your maths.
2 to 1 = 200% or 2/1
2 to 1 = for every 2 ps4's sold there was 1 xbone sold.

2 ps4s ... 1 xbone
4 ps4s ... 2 xbones
6 ps4s ... 3 xbones
7 ps4s ... 3.5 xbones
8 ps4s ... 4 xbones

For xbones... the number is 50%. (Half)
For PS4s... the number is 200% (Double)

3 to 1 = 300% or 3/1
3 to 1 = for every 3 ps4's sold there was 1 xbone sold.

3 ps4s ... 1 xbone
6 ps4s ... 2 xbones
9 ps4s ... 3 xbones
10 ps4s ... 3.3 xbones
11 ps4s ... 3.6 xbones
12 ps4s ... 4 xbones

For xbones... the number is 33%. (A Third)
For PS4s... the number is 300% (Triple)

I don't know why you all are surprised.

3:1 is what the pre-launch polls were showing worldwide, and 2:1 in the US.

It pretty much played out that way.
I guess that means 50% of us are stupid, while the rest of the world is only 33% stupid. Heh.

Watch_Dogs PC Patch (2014-07-29). Addresses stuttering.

Wasn't the PC supposed to be the lead platform when this thing was in early development?

Guess we know where that went.

Beyond that, you have a situation where device makers have to convince consumers that their new product is worth upgrading their old one for. When you have a situation where a decent-sized used market still exists for first-gen iPads (really), it's clear that the ability to convince people to move up, especially for the prices involved, is minimal.

Pretty much this. My tablet is over 3 years old and I have no real reason to upgrade it. It still does basic media consumption very well.

I'm not sure why her or her sisters and mother are even famous, let alone who would want a barbie dress-up app of that cow.

At least Jenner was famous for being in the olympics. But WTF have the Kardashians ever accomplished?

Optional Nickname! wrote on Jul 29, 2014, 10:08:
SecuRom DRM, while 'unpopular' is very strangely over-vilified compared to the persistent and even more insidious DRM of Steam, Ubisoft, etc.

If Sony had the same level of zombie-control that Valve and Apple does, you would soon be reading posts defending SecuRom with all the shills in unison. Instead, you get the indefensible position of on-line DRM is somehow better for you than off-line DRM.

Thinking people know differently.

True, but unfortunately it is difficult to find boxed games in a retail store, anymore. And most of the games in a retail box still require on-line accounts. So you are stuck with Online-DRM.

I only use Steam and GoG... and Uplay for one time activation then put it in offline mode forever. That said... sooner or later I'm going to download cracks for all my games and uninstall steam / uplay... I just have to get around to building a crap machine to buy and download the games... then crak them and transfer them to my gaming rig.

AdBlock- 'Canvas Fingerprinting' Tech Over-Hyped, Can Be Blocked.
Fingerprinting absolutely CAN be thwarted!

(Especially with spoofed headers set to Random IP and spoofed ETags turned on)


Actually...you may want the github version since there are more features that Mozilla won't allow on the FF add on site.

I don't want Crytek to fail, I just want them to get back to making decent games again.

Dude, probably most of the folks that made Far Cry are long gone.

Just sayin'... it's not the same company.

I think a much more interesting twist on this would be:

Everyone Invisible
Can see the weapon fire
Stuff in the environment easily disturbed (has movement as you walk by)

No real need for "screen cheating"... just watch the environment / other's gun fire and take pot shots. If you hit they become bloody visible just before they die or explode or whatever.

Yeah, this is actually a nice gesture.


It's also genius marketing, given how popular The Sims are, to get people to install Origin.

It won't get me to install it, and I wouldn't exactly call it a "Nice Gesture".

Crytek engineer joins id Software. Those are some big shoes he has to fill…

Crytek is just fine.

...also, not sure if the shoes are all that big to fill... iD tech 5 kind of sucked.
