Yeah I'm probably gonna pull the trigger.

The combat is real-time is there anything though to slow it down though, not turn based? Or are the other players able to be scripted?

From an article:

You canít actually buy an eight-core Jaguar part for your PC. The closest you can get is the AMD Athlon 5350, a quad-core Kabini chip running four Jaguar cores at its heart. And all four run at 2.05GHz out of the box, just a shade behind the PS4 Pro's new clockspeed.

The AMD GPU inside the PS4 Pro is reportedly twice as powerful as the original, with the leaked specs suggesting a Polaris 10-based GPU with 36 Compute Units. That sounds an awful lot like AMDís RX 480 and the officially-released details (4.2 TFLOPS of power) seem to support that. The full RX 480 runs at just under 5.2 TFLOPS.

No SSD

Sounds like the big 4K deal is simply the unit can output to 4k. 1080P content will scale from the system out, instead of using the scaler on the 4k TV. They say that has been the big problem, games looking bad on 4K.

This is normal at almost all financial institutions, Wells Fargo was just the most high profile to be caught.

The exact same thing was done at two other top 10 institutions I worked at. You either do it, or you get fired. Or, you get fired for doing it. Welcome to corporate america.

Yeah and it goes all the way down to retail, to push this or that at the register. They have to say it, they have a quota, it irritates the shit out of the customers. But corporate doesn't care. It is as if the standard products they sell can't make money for them anymore and the only way to win is through these pressure sells.

Some more pull string BS:

Wells Fargo also said it made a number of "fundamental changes to help ensure our team members are not being pressured to sell products."

Those changes include enhanced training that values ethics and how to report concerns, increased risk management professionals at branches and additional mystery shoppers.


Training
Ethics
Report

The fucking employee had all of that already, the damn high ups are the one's that made them lose ethics. They probably were trained correctly but then found out what they really have to do. And finally oh yah, Report things that aren't right... that always goes well.

And if those fired are directly involved those names should be turned into the authorities and be charged to, this has to be highly illegal.

Reading you get the pull strings... "Customers are our top priority.", "We're putting in safe guards to make sure". No some high-ups need to be charged to, those responsible a few levels up at the very least.

But with these things the loser is the people, they'll just raise their prices on something to recoup, so really no loss. I guess the city wins ultimately, they are getting a good chunk.

Suppa is completely right. Everyone who is using Steam has in fact already proven that they are willing to "take it up the ass" in all sorts of ways.

Gamers really struggle with all of this, I get the point, but that simply isn't the world we live in. Being capitalism, if not Steam, if not Nvdia, MS, Origin, Apple, NSA, it would have been someone else, because they see opportunity in doing these things.

The world is connected, if for some reason they have it in for you to connect all the dots to hold against you in a court of law for some reason, the only answer I have for you is to get off the grid. Say bye bye to modern electronics.

You can argue a losing cause, that is what is happening. Do you think we keep a score over here to see how smart each one of us are when we make yet another stand against these electronic atrocities? I'm going with no. You are winning nothing and fighting a losing cause. You want capitalism, but you argue for socialism, communism and koombaya.

So nvidia wants me to be connected, well nvidia get in line with your unoriginal idea.

News Comments > Deus Ex Mankind Divided Patch Adds DX12
20. Re: Deus Ex Mankind Divided Patch Adds DX12 Sep 8, 2016, 16:55 HorrorScope
 
Reading up some myself, the results for AMD and Nv as pretty mixed. I will say, I'm not seeing gains for NV, but there are several reporting loss fps for both or very minor losses for one or each. One states it is now bottle-necking the CPU which is what is bringing the FPS down. I'd say out of the chute on avg a very slight gain for amd and a very slight loss for NV.

DX12... will it live up to the hype someday? Or be a DX10 type promise that never happened? Time will tell.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2016-three-hours-with-playstation-4-pro


Thanks for the link, but now I need to refine my curiosity statement:

I'd like a shorter article that can articulate what my fps will be on existing 1080P content. Ps4 vs PsPro. To get an idea what kind of boost this thing has. I'd love actual, but I'd be satisfied of what the target is or what some devs are seeing.

They are trying to hype the 4k beyond what we know the better of.

But yeah, with buyers drying up they'll need to drop their price. But they can't do it too fast, or they will take a hit from people who bought at full price. We'll probably see a big Black Friday sale to wipe out overstock, since that's a way of reducing the price temporarily without getting complaints. Then we'll probably see a permanent price drop in 2017.

IMO with new consumer electronics you can drop the price aggressively as it comes with being an early adopter. Bluray was a more recent example of this. I'm sure they won't be too aggressive, but perhaps they should. Facebook has billions riding on its overall success as does pretty much every major electronics company have skin in the game. If this thing dies, ooooh boy.

Guess ya have to say that with all those $ ya put in it , i see nothing more that beta crap there

It's certainly beta, but it's not crap. I have no illusions of what my $800 bought me.

Right. I can't say for everyone, but my gut tells me a lot of people are going around stating things a bit factual and have never even owned/tried one. Let alone know the true state of software availability. There is a bunch out there now, some have to be a fulfilling experience at the least.

The only way we see price reductions in VR tech is if there's a viable challenger on the mid/low end. A rift with room-scale tracking and motion controls will end up being about the same price as a VIVE, $800. Both Oculus and Valve/HTC have been on record that new gear won't be arriving until, at least late 2017 and probably 2018, and they really have no reason to reduce price until a 3rd competitor appears.

Valve and Oculus are competitors, so we have that, don't treat them as we one.

But greater yet, if it is true buyers are drying up... that is the A#1 reason to reduce price or get V2 out soon. It doesn't matter about competition if people aren't buying.

I know this is obvious stuff, but you made it sound like they can just sit there because of a lack of competition. If people aren't buying in a market that is suggested to boom, you are dead if you don't do anything. Dead.

As for wireless latency. I think Valve has proven it gets it and they won't release something they know it going to piss off a lot of people.

Or, a killer app/game that can be the standard bearer for VR. (looking at you, Half-Life 3)

I know that is used regularly and no I'm not going to say I don't want that. Also stated by several is the lack of content, but to me it seems like there is a lot of content for such a new platform.

Yes many are short and many are still figuring out what works or not. It also doesn't always have to be about Native VR games and on your feet V. I've read most still use their headsets in a sit down environment and revert back to standard games playing with the headset. That things that make you queezy at first, tend to fade after using the headset for a period of time.

I've stated for a while I'm cool with shorter games that are priced accordingly in any setting. That the game is over before the games mechanics are old and tired.

Overall I'd say VR game availability is in pretty good shape at this early stage. You don't have to go all that far back in video games that even when things weren't new, you really had to wait for content you wanted. Dry months...

Not to mention that shit like this splits up the community even before launch,

Oh yeah not directly this, but that is another reason I don't like long EA games...

Then when you buy the final release you find out many have long come and gone because they played the shit out of it already. Yeah that is a concern of mine.

I just want to know when the AIB RX 480 cards will be here en masse! I need a new card!

I've read that there is a bitcoin bot that is buying them all up, can't state if true or not but everyone seems to be having issues getting a hold of one. It seems several have been moving over to 1060's due to this.

----------------

In regards to VR. Yep, time to bring the price down and start working towards the next model. That is how electronics work. I'm totally for VR, but they are at the point if it is true that the ball is in their court now to make it more attractive. I was looking at early spring 2017, but something has to have changed by then, like a $200 reduction or better gear.

I'm going to go with if it is good and if it is priced right that I will buy it. Sure it would have been better being out years ago, I guess the benefit now is a better looking game at a lower price, I think.

I've had more fun playing this game in the past four days than I've had on any other finished retail game this generation.

Game is as good as finished for me.

Laffman

To me that is why there are two sides...

User controlled persistent server survival games are fun! To me they are the replacement for the boring MMO scene. LET ME REPEAT: USER CONTROLLED SERVERS!!! You know the thing we've fought and lost in the FPS world many years ago, we had that and now we don't for the most part.

I get the "don't support this trend"
I don't like EA games taking forever.
I'm not a fan of EA games with paid DLC.

But there are many that have poured 100's of fun hours into these types of games that aren't made by top publishers (wasn't Epic or someone working on one?), the game for $25 has paid for itself over and over and more content just adds to the fun in which I'm sure they'll get 100's of more hours. So the $$$ to fun ration if very high in this genre. Because you may not be swept up by one, you are basically jumping into someone else fun business and telling them how things are to be done. Not a fan of that.

My main thing I want from these games is to get out of EA so they have to maintain Save and Mod compatibility. To often it's a start over again from scratch with saves and if you are modding, a total redo as the old things don't work. This gets tiresome.

I get both sides, but I also can't argue with those that have and will continue to have massive hours of satisfaction.

I personally love the genre, just wished the one's I want to play were final. I've requested to finalize their games and simply make a version 2 available in a couple years with the new stuff.
