They are not going to accuse another company of anything until they're damn sure what's going on.

If it was a batch sold on then screw Rebellion. If it was a batch that was stolen, screw the distributer who got offered a batch at a price that was too good to be true.
Well that would take them all of 35 seconds to figure out now wouldn't it? Unless of course you're saying that they don't know who they sold the keys to in the first place. This isn't rocket surgery, when I worked in retail shop over 15 years ago we'd see legit and .CN keys/discs from legit distributors(e.g. ingram micro, supercom, etc) as well, and for amazing prices.

Not Rebellion's pool. A retailer's pool. And it depends entirely on how they got in and what they had access to. The AMD hack retrieved the keys out of a bog standard text file for example; AMD's other keys weren't exposed because they didn't have a copy stored like that.
So again, where are the hack reports of this happening? It doesn't take rocket surgery to figure out who the keys would have come from. There's no information on it, no retailer and rebellion isn't saying what retailer either. All they're coming across as saying it "they was stolen!eleventy one!!!111!" Security through obscurity isn't a plan, neither is refusing to divulge a retailer who has piss poor security, and can't keep moderately-secure information secure.

Hacked as in stolen from another retailer's key pool. Presumably they would have needed to hack into that retailer to get the keys.
So you're saying that there was a major breach of rebellions auth pool? And Rebellion isn't reporting it to the public, or that various retailers had a breach of their auth servers as well and they're not reporting it? Sorry doesn't fly. Because if it was true, you'd see other keys being revoked as well.

Still wondering how you end up with "hacked" keys. A key works, or it doesn't. A key is region locked, or it's not. Simple as that, unless of course they're saying that someone figured out how to generate keys. Or someone from their own company stole a batch of keys and sold them.

ViRGE wrote on Jun 28, 2014, 19:45:
But isn't the case #2? The keys were stolen, it was reported, and the keys were revoked.

Keep in mind that the time it takes to do the above is not instantaneous. So if the keys were stolen and immediately usable, then some (if not many) would be activated before the issue was discovered, reported, and the revocation went through.
That that I can see, since 99% of the time keys are one-time-use unless they're for cybercafe's. In which case they can be used for x number of machines. Still trying to figure out how the keys were "stolen" and all that.

Link to code depository please
mantelaccess@amd.com it is still a development API after all. Never mind that nvidia's gameworks is straight up based off of DX, so they didn't have to do any of the work.

The last thing I heard was there were fewer companies using gameworks than mantle.

I didn't even know about this green, pink, purple color "game" they are doing until yesterday. It's lame. Why reward them for lameness? It's like they are a casino and you are that old lady with the oxygen tank pumping money into their slot machine.
For some people it's fun, for others it's just another money making system. So far I've cleared just shy of $150CAD off cards and related items. But don't forget that "game tracking" is pretty much useless in terms of played metrics. At least in my case, many of the games I've played and completed were done before that was in place.

As a member of the pink team, and the first team to reach 1m points. I'm happy to point out that we exploited it first.

Thanks
I know it's been on sale several times on different places I just always miss out on it.
I think it's been $5 a few times
No problem. And yeah, it's usually the same thing with me. I either miss it, or repeatedly miss it.

I'd like to pick that up still but can't find any deals on it.
Maybe I'll just wait for this new one instead.
Uplay had it on their store for $7 during the E3 sale. g2a has it on for under $10 right now.

Why would they lie? Why would they remove tested, functional, release-ready features from their product in the first place? How would they benefit from doing so?
Favorite conspiracy theory going today: Sony asked them to, as sony has the most to lose in the graphics wars. Everyone already knows xbone is full-on-shit.

Why not just add a 60 cap option?

Because if you listen to the console idiots, 30fps is for that "true cinematic experience."

Neither. The ego's of each would become so large they'd crush each other and endanger the whole world.

Well that's alright. Some people would look it up though, and realize it's not a joke as you said.

That sounds like some scenario you imagined or saw on a sitcom.

Have seen it happen, the city where it happened is known as "the centre of the universe" aka Toronto.
