"First iPhone 6 Sold In Australia Dropped On Live TV."


Saw that and the owner should be pissed, opened the box properly and the device just popped out.

I know, how fucking ridiculous is the packaging for it? See how thick/deep the box is and the bloody phone is just sat right on top, flush with the edge so it just slides out? LOL

Apple sure aren't trying to hide how much they despise their customers.

As much as I hate to say it, I dont think Death to Spies 3 is going to make it. Which is a shame, because it looks like a really good game (mash-up between Hitman and Splinter Cell? Perfect!)

I fear the fact its a Russian team making a game that focuses on you being a Communist spy assassinating Americans and carrying out missions against the west isn't exactly going to appeal to the narrow minded/wider gaming audience at large - but its interesting and different (which are what we need more of in gaming in my book).

1. Re: Samsung Gear VR 'superior to first-gen Oculus', Climax claims Sep 15, 2014, 10:40 NamecaF
By "first-gen Oculus" do they mean the DK1 or the first commercial release that's coming post-DK2? If it's the former then big-whoop. If it's the latter, how can they qualify that? Have all the details on games/developers/hardware, etc on the commercial Oculus Rift been locked down and released already?

Edit: The Sad, Inevitable Oculus Rift Boob-Grabbing Game Is Here.

Is it racist that I immediately *knew* it would be a Japanese game? Or just one of those cases where stereotypes are completely valid?

Well the exchange rate between the US dollar and the AU dollar is like 1:1.1 so that cant be it....

Maybe the Aussies really implemented a new kind of tax on games?

Nope, there's no new tax or any other official government stated price rise. The "Australia Tax" is just a phrase/name thats been adopted because it seems like everything from electronic goods, to clothes, to movies, software, games, etc is HEAVILY marked up for no other reason than they can.

It has nothing to do with the government or anyone other than the publishers/distributors, etc. They decide Australians should pay more - even for digital products that dont have any additional "overheads" or import duties/taxes put on them because they've been getting away with it for decades.

It was noted recently that it was actually cheaper to buy a ticket, fly to the USA, buy an Adobe product and fly back than it was to buy the Adobe software in a retail store in Australia. Think that's fair?

This cant be true, can it? I mean the ludicrous hypocrisy and double-standards if true is just utterly amazing.

After publicly spitting the dummy and shaming and calling a boycott on Oculus Rift for "selling out" after being acquired by Facebook, to then turn around sell out yourself (to Microsoft of all companies!) is just too hilarious to be true.

Well this is really.. not surprising news

They should have made Fallout 4...

ZeniMax Online != Bethesda Game Studios

They both fall under the umbrella of ZeniMax Media, but ZeniMax Online was created specifically for ESO and I assume other MMO/Online games had it done well.

Hopefully Bethesda are working on Fallout 4 right now.

Isn't this too little too late? Are there still people on this planet that did not play L4D2 ?

Yeah kinda pointless now, as most either (A) used back-channels and bought the "uncensored" US version or (B) used an unofficial "patch" (like left4gore/left4uncut) to restore the gore.

I guess this just makes it "official" then? Meh.

Aother Sarkeesian article, well she is definitely getting a whole lot more exposure, thanks to the death threat trolls or whatever.

Anita 1:0 Internet Dumbasses

So here is an idea, why dont we all STFU, let her have her say, and maybe just maybe people will catch on after a while that she is just another glorified critic trying hard to make a nice big juicy buck. Everyone smearing her all the time is just playing right into her hand.

I think you're giving people too much credit mate

In a perfect world we would apply the same method of pricing to all of the games we offer. However, things are a little bit more complicated, and there are some games in our catalog that follow a different region-based pricing scheme. However, we wouldn't be if we didn't find a way to make right by the users who end up paying relatively more for such titles. Here's where the Fair Price Package comes in!

The Fair Price Package applies to all of the titles which we couldn't include in our standard pricing scheme. If you end up paying more for a game than its standard US Dollar price, we'll refund you the difference out of our own pocket. The refunded value will be added to your account in Store Credit in the currency of your purchase. That's right, no more gift codes, you'll be getting Store Credit that you can use to purchase anything on or partially pay for an item that's more expensive. More choice, ease of use, and less limitations!

That is just Awesome! Fuck you Australia tax

watchdogs next i guess.

TheWorse mod with Maldo textures fixes it, but yeah I could see that.

Just about every publisher/developer uses "bullshots" and awesome looking "tweaked gameplay" or "vertical slice" trailers to market their games these days... so just about every game could technically be guilty of the same thing.

It's a bullshit practice that definitely needs to stop.

Don't fly drones over our police stations. We do that to you, it shouldn't happen the other way around. Trust us, we're the good guys.

Every cop should have to wear 2 cameras on their person, with a front and rear facing camera in their car while on duty. Strange that cops don't want to be recorded. Wouldn't you want evidence of crimes, crime scenes and arrests for trial? Why should a trial have just the verbal recollection of a cop's memories for something that may have happened 1-2 years ago? Unless they have something to hide...

I dont know about 2 cameras, but some states in Australia are trialing Google Glass type cameras on cops to record everything they see, do and say (including what offenders and witnesses do and say). It's a win-win I say.
