EDIT: Looks like someone is onto it already, but it's far from commercial. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnGIz9kkd_E

Kinda crappy but good that they are trying. I wonder if you could combine a climbing treadmill, http://www.hammacher.com/Product/12219
with a some type of technically that actually adjust the handholds as it rotates, and an augmented reality system that actually knows where the handholds are so they aren't just "floating" there.

As a climber I'm kinda offended that this doesn't seem to use your feet at all. Feet are arguably more important than hands in climbing. I know it would be very difficult to make a good foot interface though. I could picture this game actually being interesting if it had real challenging routes in which you use your feet and hands. Climbing is puzzle solving, and there are nearly infinite combinations possible. Such a game could actually be a decent trainer for new situations.

You mentioned a trial? A FREE trial?

As opposed to what exactly?

It's just one of those days I guess where marketing goes full retard.


To be fair, there are plenty of "$1 trial, full price if you don't cancel in 30 days." This is a true trial and doesn't automatically bill you once your 30 days are up.

Kind of strange considering the original Xbox and the Xbone both use x86 compatible CPUs.

Got to be careful there, while there are similarities to PC's the fact is the console developers code a lot closer to the hardware. It gives better performance but it leaves little room for error. Even minor changes in the hardware or OS between two generations could break compatibility. I remember on the N64 a few games would react badly to the presence of accessories released after the games were developed, and that was on the same platform. It's incredibly easy to break shit like that.

Yep, also apparently the original had a very custom GPU that all their games were coded against. While it had a form of DirectX I believe it was custom compiled into each game. That said, if they have the sourcecode it shouldn't be hard to recompile to the newer systems and release as a downloadable patch.

Co-op? Awesome.

Any news if they will backport this to Wings of Liberty and Swarm?

The co-op mode is NOT through the primary campaign. It's a different set of maps. Still excited about it, but don't confuse what the feature is.

Either way, is it just Protoss co-op, or did they include one for every race? Any news about more co-op maps in the future is what I'm asking I guess.

Well, if they are going to decide to sell these HD/remastered remakes, then they'll make bank. Classy move would be for previous owners to get them for free, but I doubt Activision is down with that.

Honestly, so few people likely have proof of ownership to the classic titles anymore it wouldn't cost them much. It would be a support nightmare though.

Yeah I've inquired and complete pack is only past games. It's pretty impressive that they are giving them future games as well. From my understanding that's a deal previously only given to employees and vip.

Oh, I have a question... well two.

1. Would this officially make Steam a platform?
2. If Steam is a legit platform (if we are to go by what people consider a platform) then wouldn't Steam be the largest dedicated gaming platform?

Last I checked they have over 125 million active accounts worldwide. That would technically make them the largest consoles ever.

Not all of their games work on their console yet. I'd say Steam was a retail outlet. A growing part of that outlet is the new SteamOS platform. Saying Steam is a platform is like saying Microsoft Live is a platform.

So Steam took PC gaming from retail to online, and now PC gaming is going back to retail?

Mostly this is to highlight their hardware. It makes sense to get the hardware on display as demo units in physical store shelves so people can try it.

God forbid people don't check Twitter or Instagram for a few hours while flying.

Personally I just use it to stream music. Really nice as you can now use it from boarding until landing. But I've never seen a charge above $12, I would never pay $40 or whatever, at that point I'd just preload my music.

So is this essentially a port of their year+ old console game? Or something different?

That other Sony article is even worse.. the headline does not agree with the actual content ;p

"The biggest downside to PlayStation Now is that it's just so darn expensive"

So how does it turn a Smart TV into a fun gaming system?

Well it sounds like the software is well made and runs well. The expensive part doesn't really make it "not fun".

$30 a month doesn't sound horrible, though from what I hear your subscription selection is much smaller than your rental selection.

I bet that makes the whole Elder Scrolls thing TOTALLY WORTH IT!

That's what I was thinking.

I'm sure it was, to Notch, when he was personally involved and just as annoyed as the rest of us at the supposed "infringement."

thats the whole point... how pathetic the dude is for being such a dick about it in the first place

?? How was he a dick, he was threatened to be sued over the name of scrolls and he refused. Cite said dickishness please?

FTA:
The Rift is not the 'iPhone of VR.' Nothing out there is 'the iPhone of VR.' They're almost like the Palm Pilots and the Treos of virtual reality.

Wow, that takes some balls to admit your platform won't be huge at first.

So it sounds like they are targetting bundlers.

Honestly, Dell/Alienware can probably sell more Rifts bundled with new gaming PCs than Facebook/Oculus selling them by themselves.

It actually irritates me how bargain basement the consoles are.
....
But then it comes down to developers designing for it which they won't.. they'll design for the lowest performance with some sliders on the higher performance system. Pretty much it's always a loss for the consumer.


Its called lowest common denominator. But in reality it really makes sense. If you want to make a top of the line game with top of the line graphics for top of the line systems. That is great! But if you want to make a game that will run on the most systems possible so more people can buy it, you will spec towards the XBox 360, maybe the Xbox One. Why, because there are over 30 million XBox 360 in active use and almost 10 million XBox Ones in active use.

And who has a SSD powered off for a year? ^^

I think that's the point. Don't store archive data on an SSD in a closet, or especially in an storage unit that isn't air conditioned. This is important as people often do this for legal data retention requirements.
