Probably the same reason(s) Microsoft themselves don't trust Win8 to run early builds of Xbox One games. There's gotta be something to it.


Which makes this all the more hilarious.

That engineer mentions "nothing goes back to developers" when it comes used game sales. Why the hell should anything go back to the developers? If I buy a new Chevy from a dealer and then decide to sell the car later, do I give some of the money I get to Chevy or the dealer? No! If I decide to let my brother borrow it for a day, should I send Chevy or the dealer a check? The same applies to any other product. Once I buy it, it's mine! I'm so sick of these cunts who think they still own the product that I paid for. Double-dipping bastards!


Wow. Seriously, wow.

The car analogy is also so flawed it's painful. A car is something extremely expensive that most people cannot afford new. At all. It's also not really a luxury in this day and age.

Most importantly, its value drops. There's good reason to want a new car versus a used one. Less risk, it's cleaner, it will run better, etc. A used game? It's identical to a new game. Zero flaws based upon it being used. It simply does not degrade. Cars do.

Your post was nearly a meltdown and it is pretty far off base.


No you're completely wrong. The car analogy is fine. It doesn't matter if the object degrades or not. The main point is that there is NOTHING where you have to pay a fee to the original maker when something is sold as used.

Plus cars can be restored to new or better than new anyway. And not call cars stay devalued forever. Just look at classic corvette values.

Another thing, a lot of used games have tiny scratched/scuffs, torn manuals or cases so yes they do degrade some once someone gets a hold of it.

The code doesn't even fucking work, fuck origin and fuck ea.

"this code is already in use" what a joke.


That's weird b/c it worked fine for me.

So of course the PS4 "launch edition" on Amazon has been sold out for a while now, I just noticed the "day one" edition of the Xfail is still available for pre-order. Haha!

Microsoft- Xbox One's "infinite cloud power" can track 330,000 asteroids in space


But can it track the number of people buying a PS4 instead?

I DOUBT that gearbox lost money on it. Because they sure didn't put much into it. Gearbox says its "3dr's" game, but last I heard, this was all done by gearbox. Didn't they mostly just get the IP and the game itself was done from scratch over again by gearbox?


No they took what 3DR had and tide up loose ends. They definitely did not start from scratch.

When was the last decent motorcycle game?


Tourist Trophy for PS2. It would be great if they'd make a new one for PS4. The creator said he has a lot of interest in making a new one. It's just that Gran Turismo takes up all their time as it is.

When is the OR pr0n going to arrive?

Edit: That's the design? A big cable right in front? Wow, that's terrible. they couldn't split it to run it around sides to keep it out of the way? And how many are going to get trashed when people forget about that and jump up to take a pee or get a drink or something?


That's a very old prototype of the first rift in that pic. The current dev kit has the cable coming out the back and it's not in the way at all. It looks nothing like in that pic. The current 1080p kit they are testing has the cables out the side. They sent out an update to us kickstarter backers of what it looks like currently.

The consumer rift is not even close to final.

Looks like amazon has now broke the PS4 into two SKUs - though identical:

The Launch Edition is no longer available.

The Standard Edition notes:
The standard version of the PlayStation 4 is identical to the Launch Edition. Due to high demand, we cannot guarantee Release-Date Delivery on the standard version of the PlayStation 4. We will deliver the standard version of PlayStation 4 as close to its release date as possible.


guess the "promised" units are all gone. Now those they selling now who knows when they are getting them in


According to Amazon my order is the Launch Edition. Hopefully that is really true and I don't get bumped.

Were some of you looking forward to Killer Instinct?



I love KI and it makes me sad that it will never come to PS4 due to MS publishing it. On the other hand, this F2P model they're going with is pure crap anyway.

Most likely, the original is still going to be better. So I'll continue with that.

As much as I want KI, it's not worth the negatives of the Xbone.

Too bad the developers of this are so anti VR. I don't know what their problem is. This kind of game with Oculus Rift would be awesome.

"Visual Studio 2013 announced."


I hope they fix the ugly UI with this one. But seeing how MS has been going at things lately, I doubt it. I used to love getting a hold of a new Visual Studio. For a while there every thing about it was getting much better. But I can't stand 2012. So I still use 2008 and 2010.

It's a shame there's no IDE for Linux that's just as good. Everything I've tried so far is either crap or just meh.

This game is terrible, can't believe I used to think it was good soo many years ago.


Crazy talk.

I honestly, even today, think this game kicks modern FPS's asses. The level design and game-play is just so much better than what FPS's have devolved into.

and now PS4noDRM is trending on Twitter, awesome!
Edit: here is the article that goes with it: http://po.st/VIPzrq

And if they follow MS suit, then the road will lead to pc's for many more. Which is good... pc's make you smarter.
Hoping the SteamBox will be out soon. That will solve my problem of not being able to play my PC games on the living room TV.


What about an Alienware X51? You can even get Linux pre-installed on it.
