win 10 is a free upgrade for win 7 and 8 and all recent cards should support it. If not GPU upgrades are dirt cheap.

For now.™

Actually its free for the first year after that you got to subscribe...

Where did you read this? Win10 is a free upgrade for win 7 and win 8 users for one year after Win10's release date, after that they will have to pay for the UPGRADE. For private users, Win10 will stay free to use until... well... the end of time? See? The time to upgrade for free is limited, not the time you can use Win10.

Yes, the motivation seems to be that it's cheaper to lose the first year of sales, have everyone upgrade for free, and only have to support Win 10, than to have to support Win 7, Win 8, etc. in perpetuity.
They going to need to support those platforms anyway for their life cycle.

Their corporate end goal after all is a 'software as a subscription service' walled of garden OS that you need to pay for according to the frequency of the payment model. And the software of course can only be installed from their 'app store' generating more money.

Indeed if I was in Microsoft's position that would be my strategic goal for the 'PC'.

DX12 exclusivity, and free upgrade are just lures to progress the plan, and remove win 7 as medium term obstacle.

If I am wrong then Microsoft must open up the 'modern' app environment to side loading without a developer license.

Lol, the purpose is to stop any modding that can occur so they can sell their DLCs later. "saving the players from the nasty cheaters" is just sugar coating.

Forgive me for failing to read the article but there IS NO ISSUE with memory on the GTX 970. It has memory in two different locations with most of it in the first and the second only activates when it is necessary.

NVidia explained everything days ago.
The problem is when it starts using that memory actively it cuts memory performance by up to 50%, and nvidia wasn't upfront about this fact so now the internet is exploding.

I like racing games but previous WRC titles looked so underwhelming I could never force myself to buy one.
There was a demo too for one of them (maybe on the console) and the handling was just plain suck.
Codemasters Grid and Dirt series was leaps and bounds ahead in physics and fun factor.
The real question is "can it even rift?"
That's going to become the defining factor of games released from next year on.

Can you travel to different systems yet via flight/warp/jump?

You're joking, right? They're too busy squeezing mo' moneh outta people by releasing more concepts of ships. No time for the actual game!

No hate comment yet ?
Something is terrible wrong !!!

There. Better now?


To seriously answer the original question: You're still kidding, right? All you can do is fart in your cockpit seat (of select single seater craft only so far... the multiplayer ship play won't be released until later this year in AC 2.0) and do some dogfighting on a few tiny maps. And you can race on a few other tiny maps.
That's it. There's not even a hint of a persistent universe or in fact *any* universe just yet...

I picked this up as part of a promotion when you buy a new GFX card. Pretty, but there's not a lot to do other than putz around a small area in your ship. I seriously don't understand how people can dump hundreds of dollars into this game buying virtual goods for a game that's not even close to being complete. I would need a massive reserve of disposable wealth before I'd even consider it.

Ok so how many tiny squares they got so far to dogfight in? They promised a 100 systems or something right? How many tiny rooms in a system? Or haven't they got a populated system yet?

Regardless of legality Ubisoft is pretty much wearing the crown of the most hated company on the internet right now. I wonder if the de-activations are worth the bad publicity ball they keep feeding.

Changed Tactical Camera so that it no longer re-centers when the player changes party members.
That's the only useful change in my play experience.

a superior experience because having the start menu look more colorful scares you.
You must be confusing fear with utter loathing and hate.

Let me expand on this, I actually don't mind the fact that they have a alternate UI built into the OS even though I dislike it intensely; what I do mind is that they have an entire extra platform for applications which can only be installed of their store (which is their wet dream of course as I mentioned before).

Windows 8/8.1 is a frankenstein abortion of a OS. They should have gone full metro on the UI front and just call it something else, but they keep thinking by forcing this crap down the desktop crowd's throat it's going to get developers onboard to create content for their mobile platforms to compete against apple and Google.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer says they are working towards making Windows 10 "the best operating system we've ever created for gamers on PCs,"

So does that mean it's going to have crappy mouse and keyboard controls and your going to be forced to use a controller? Rolleyes
