I want a PS4.. Didn't care for the 3 hardware much. The 4 looks promising.

So will it allow keyboards & mice? They should do that so people can use the wireless ones and surf properly on it. That would be a huge boon, imo. Then it could replace a big part of the low-end PC market while still having better graphics. I know, I know... It's not a pc, but damn it could very easily replace one for basic web functions. I'm sure it will have web surfing capabilities. Even blu-ray players have that...

Well if Actiblizz is trying to compete with CoD there's a chance they've been working on this for years and in that case, the recycled assets might not be as prevalent as we fear. Will the maps suck?

BF2143 in 2014 that builds on top of the BF4 engine? Summer?

@ Axis and Thundr

1. The effective tax rate in the USA is lower now than it has been in 100 years. So quit your bitching.

Are you factoring in monetary inflation into that? The fed is pumping about $75 billion a month into the system to stop our socialist system from catastrophic collapse. Inflation is a tax. Also it looks like the monetary fed bubble will burst before too long and inflation will skyrocket. So right now much of what we have is hidden inflation. For years we have exported our inflation to other countries. S&P rating slightly dropped now, we still export a lot of it.

There's a capitalist paradise where taxes are practically non-existent and companies operate in regulation-free environment. So practice what you preach and move there: Somalia. Let us know how that works out for you.

Somalia is not anarchist or libertarian. Since the UN invaded tribal and other government types have sprung up to respond to the military action against their freedom from former socialist tyranny.

All that said, I support a consumption tax more than an income tax. I'd support getting rid of the latter, replacing it with consumption tax.

Yes exactly... And most will buy into it as a legitimate proceeding. As I said before. A witch hunt. It was a high risk venture.

Yes, the market supports prices being through the roof and athletes being paid extreme salaries.
Much like the market supports the goods you buy being manufactured in China and the US-based CEOs being paid extreme salaries.

Well a big contributor to our manufacturing base moving to China is, imo, due to Fed (reserve) policy and our Federal debt. The Chinese and many other countries own a huge amount of our debt. Yes, it's a market force, but it's centrally planned and managed. So this isn't free-market economics at work in this case. It's anti free-market economics at work.

Yeah I know. That would be absurd... for those who aren't skeptical.

Since Intel owns a good portion of Red Hat and makes most of its money from the enterprise market, I'm sure they couldn't give a fuck less about the PC market.

In fact, they care so little about it that they are ceasing design and production of desktop motherboards entirely.

LMAO

People still play Quake? (That's not a troll. I'd really like to know.)

Do they play QuakeLive?

I had more fun on Q2 Lithium 2 InstaGib w/hook than really any other game I can remember.

It seems to be more of a company tradition now. They should adjust the event to cater more to consoles since that is now their target audience.

I'm glad they are still making content for the game!

I still log in now and then. It's different from the other mmos anyhow.

Yes this is the MMO that succeeded in being very different from WoW. And on that alone, it's worth trying.

Jesus, they've spent all this time since release working on DLC?!? Uggghhh.

My feelings exactly.. Sheesh I thought they'd be at least a year into the next game! I have yet to play Dragonborn but all the DLC they put out didn't come across as needing eighteen months to develop by the entire Skyrim staff.

I'm also really hoping for FO4, not another ES just yet. Especially since it seems like they need to step up their game as far as creating a well polished RPG experience. Skyrim Redone to the rescue.

We need another killer app to bring PC sales back up. Web browsing and e-mail can be done on other devices now. Same with Youtube. The downtrend may continue for a while yet.. And MS seems ready to embrace the death of the PC, ironically.

Well maybe it's a good thing MS is going for the casual console gaming market so us hardcore players can stick to PC! I think they want some of that tremendous casual pie that the Wii had. But yeah, bad move if they abandon or alienate their current core market...

With regards to the article... Just shows how the market is king. MS will be forced to adapt, or suffer the consequences.

Is it just me, or are the numbers unusual on this KS? $1.9m but only 22k backers?

Yeah, look at the pledge counts for the high dollar tiers on the right hand column. Eleven people donated $10,000 or more! 17 backers of $3,500 or more. Sixty eight pledged $1,500 or more. etc etc.. LB has a loyal following, but I still killed him from the ship after he chased me outside to the moat.

News Comments > Battlefield 4/AMD Bundle Plans
10. Re: Battlefield 4/AMD Bundle Plans Apr 6, 2013, 19:45 LittleMe
 
Well hopefully Origin competing with Steam and other DD game services will keep Steam healthy with some competition. I don't blame EA for trying their own service and not wanting to be beholden to Steam/Valve.

Steam is FREE. Origin is FREE. So, ask yourself, why does Origin even exist in the first place if both are free? Whatever answer you come up with, it's not going to be an answer that describes something that it's in your favor or something related to you.

This is how Soviet Russians thought. 'Why have several brands of the same product when one is enough and no different?' Such thinking ignores the gradual but powerful evolutionary forces over time created by healthy competition. Consumer choice is a very powerful thing. Sure, Origin has many faults, but it's likely that, just like Steam, the service will improve greatly.

As long as EA doesn't have a government-granted monopoly (or favoritism laws) and the Internet is a place where freedom can flourish, they'll be beholden to natural market forces that will keep them in check from destroying all of mankind and the planet from an greedy corporate black hole that you foresee.

All that said, I do keep Origin in a separate Windows install so they don't spy on me. I don't trust them very much. Haven't booted into it for months now. I am also skeptical of some of their intentions.

Well since PC gaming is thriving and the mainstream PC market is shrinking considerably, Intel is merely adjusting their target audience.

The current i7 chips have weak GPU's compared to the CPU, so they make poor gaming chips. If they had dropped one CPU core and expanded the GPU core then it would be much better balanced for gaming. It seems like they didn't benchmark actual games to correctly balance the chip, besides Farmville benchmarks.
