The Playstation TV thing is kinda crazy good. Plays PS1-PS3 and Vita games, runs streaming apps and can use PS Now. All that for $99, the cost of a FireTV or Roku.
Two quick points of clarification:

1) It only plays PS1 games and [i]some[/i] Vita games. Most Vita games do not work on it since it lacks touchpad controls.

2) For comparing it to the FireTV/Roku, the Vita/Playstation TV can only output to a maximum of 1080i/720p. All dedicated media boxes these days can do 1080p.

It doesn't surprise me at all that Microsoft is sabotaging Windows 7. As soon as they have a new OS, they start to screw up the prior OS to try to force sales of the new one.
Microsoft is not sabotaging Windows 7. Windows 7 has the same functionality and security features as it always had, and it will have any outstanding security vulnerabilities patched on the second Tuesday of the month until 2020.

The article in question vastly misstates what's going on. Microsoft added new security APIs to Windows 8, so that developers can use them to mitigate flaws in their own code. Those are new features and as such come with a new OS; they are not patched in to old OSes.

6GB of ram minimum?!? For that fuzzy, dated looking garbage?

God damn programmers have gotten fucking lazy.
It's a game built for a console with 8GB of RAM. Don't be surprised when your PC needs as much (or more) resources than a console to play console ports.

I wonder if these drivers have any of the XB1-specific features enabled (impulse triggers), or if it's solely emulating a 360 controller for the moment?

But no word on a wireless option, so at the moment, useless for me.

It might work with the same wireless PC adapter that the X360 controller used...? Not sure but it makes sense. Uses same wireless frequencies?

Different network protocols. The XB1 controller uses WiFi-Direct, from what I understand. The 360 controller used a custom wireless protocol.

Sony sold a shocking number of PSPs despite how forgettable it was in the end. I suppose it comes down to location and games: the PSP was a much bigger success in Japan than outside of it, and at least in the West while it did thankfully get games (unlike the Vita), a lot of them were forgettable. The poor inputs and PS 1.5 graphics didn't do game developers any favors here.

Some of those Kart clones look fun, has anyone tried Krautscape or Skydrift?
If you want to play a karting game on the PC, just get Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Nothing else even comes close on the PC.

If you own a Wii U and don't get Mario Kart 8, you need your head checked.

On the contrary. I expect any bids they get for this garbage will be tiny. Gamers aren't quite as dumb as we give them credit for, especially on something as mind-bogglingly common as Atari games.

Can anyone recommend a 27" monitor? As far as I can see it's either 1440p@60hz or 1080p@120hz unless I feel like importing a QNIX QX2710 from South Korea and overclocking it, which I don't.
Correct, those are your two options. My preference would be for 27" 1440p; the higher refresh rate is nice, but not at the low pixel density of 1080p on such a large monitor.

The only concern I have about buying SF4 right now is that Ultra SF4 is due next month.

Um, yeah.
That's a pretty accurate summary right there. The editor/publisher of that magazine came off as a creep and a Rank S liar. The fact that he would even bother to lie like that is more insulting than his magazine.

Glad they had the guts to scrap it.
Indeed. Most game companies won't scrap a project by the time it makes it to a closed beta. It legitimately takes a good degree of fortitude to be willing to admit a game isn't working and to call it quits this late into development.

t's funny seeing all the phony rage at Valve because you know you're going to buy it anyway.
That would require them to release it first.

I have it on good authority..HL3 is dead and L4D isn't on a fast track either..
What is Valve's 2014 game, anyhow?

I'm fairly sure we're past critical mass. Now we're up to Pets.com; there's no business strategy and no idea how to make money, it's just copying what everyone else is doing.

I have a WiiU, but the handful of Wii games that I have don't have online functions. I honestly haven't even tried using Wii games on it.

I would assume, that since it'll run a Wii emulator, it won't work.

The WiiU doesn't use an emulator for Wii game compatibility, it's running a similar hardware architecture as the Wii and is binary compatible. There are some minor hardware/software differences that will break somethings of course..

So...sort of how they did the gamecube within the Wii than...
Somewhat. Unlike GC->Wii, the GPU is entirely new. They just have a very good translation stack for it.
