The chances that this will fail commercially=good. And isn't their primary revenue coming from selling 3d cards negated by this service? I guess this is for the low end consumer or alternative delivery.

Notice it's the launcher that is being patched, not the game. Better than nothing of course. Oh and the launcher downloading/updating the mods was frustrating and so that is good they stopped it from doing that.

it includes 100% of the C++ source code.

WOW that is awesome news.

It just needs a modular modding system like the Creation Engine (elder scrolls) and things will really take off. It shouldn't be too hard to implement that if it doesn't have it already.

1. ASUS GTX 980 Matrix 4 Feb 21, 2015, 23:19 LittleMe
 
When accessing anything above 3.5GB of vRAM the GTX980's double their performance compared to accessing less than 3.5GB. nVidia did this so that it all balances out from the GTX970's slowing down above 3.5GB.

So if you put a GTX 980 and a GTX 970 in the same PC, it will literally explode green shit all over your walls and your fiance.

People don't understand why service is delivered and what would incentivize ISP's to provide good service. Laws and regulations don't do that. Regulations don't make people care. They should be viewed as a last resort when all else fails, not as a knee jerk reaction as is being done here. "Save the internet" my ass. They are going to ruin it with good intentions.

Competition is a primary driver for businesses to improve products service. Laws and regulations don't do that. This isn't taught in Marxist classrooms, nor by socialist control freaks who over react by over controlling their surroundings consider it viable since they don't understand the organic nature of the universe.

"Broadband users deserve access to the content, services and applications of their choosing

There's the problem. You don't deserve it. You get access because it's in their interest to provide it to you. You get better access year after year because they want to keep your business and not lose you to their competition, but only if there is healthy competition. They are forced to upgrade efficiently and as cost effectively as possible in a competitive environment.

Risk of failure is a healthy fear that businesses should suffer. Duopolies destroy much of the healthy competitive force that drives a good customer experience. What I'm saying is difficult for someone to understand who wants everything written in stone from day one.

The NSA would never do that. We should nationalize the Internet then they would do even less since the feds love us and would do whatever we want for free. I want a pony too!

allows 8K displays (7680×4320) or high-frequency (120Hz) 4K displays

4k @ 120hz! Awesome. Since 8k is 4X the resolution of 4k, it should have the bandwidth for 4k @ 144hz as well.

This is unlawful under the European convention on human rights - which the UK government wants to get rid of, because terrorism. I don't think this is the sort of "fighting terrorism" that they want people to know they'd be legalising.

Yes. They will try to fight their war into perpetuity because terrorism is just a tactic, not an actual enemy. They can re-label additional enemies at their whim. The point of the war is to dominate and control when beforehand it would have been illegal under their own laws and contrary to the rationale for their governance.

Well technically the first electronic game was in 1948. Then there was one in 1950 and another in 1952 that could contend as the first electronic game. All three played on mainframes. But since they were on mainframe CRT's that didn't use a standard 'video' signal they aren't called video games. Nevertheless, they did use video on a CRT screen so that in my view qualifies them as the firsts.

Nevertheless, thank you Baer.

I suppose the FCC implementing it is better than Congress passing a law. Don't delude yourself that the Internet has been 'saved' by this. The Internet is still delivered to your home by monopolistic anti-competitive corporations. The Internet is not free for the people to use without big brother controlling it. Net Neutrality rules were necessary because of this and it is still true.

Well said Cutter. However extortion is too strong a word here. Price fixing is a better way to put it. Question is, isn't this done in many retail sectors, not just gaming? This is one way the consumer and market is fighting this practice, with some success.

Wow this is surprising. A shame too. Say what you will about Planetside and H1Z1, SOE was one of the few MMO companies looking to do interesting things instead of pumping out traditional grindy MMOs.

This. I liked SOE.

This is great news. DMCA abuse harms gaming and is terrible PR.

Very tempted to buy it in the next few days. I read a review that said the game puts walls up to what made Dead Island games fun, but I'm seeing consistent player reviews in forums that say the game is fantastic and I enjoyed DI a lot. That graphic mod looks great too.

Yeah I can't stand it when people complain that a game is unoptimized and decry the developer because they can't run it well at max settings on their mediocre rig. That is self entitlement to a T.

Very glad to hear about the PC focus but of course for those laid off this is a difficult time. Best of luck to them.

I remember reading years ago that relocating is often a way for a business to clean house.. So I'd surmise that the layoffs were the intended result here, not so much the relocation.

Without faster broadband, new wearables and other devices are “simply gadgets and flashy, expensive toys for us to gaze at, marvel and wonder,” added Commissioner Mignon Clyburn.

Sure uh huh.
