Apparently it's still $15 in India. Now that I know about this, I'm tempted to go use a VPN to get it.

It's unlikely this VP was going to go quietly if there wasn't something in those investigations. So I doubt this was merely social media accusations. Similarly with the other VP. Those are merely the impetus that got the ball rolling.
It's real easy to do something like an email or chat search of corporate communications, and people who habitually do this crap do it all the time because of a lifetime of those habits and views and don't bother to do much hiding of it. Good example would be the original metoo, rapenstein.

Its the same assets. Same story. 99.99% of the game is already done! Why do we have to pay an extra $20 for a old game? PC users getting screwed over just like when PC games jumped to $60 for no damned reason other than "well we milked the console users for an extra $10 why not the PC users too!".
Easy enough to just wait for a sale then.

I wouldn't be surprised by that high of a percentage. Gamers were early adopters into Windows 10. one because it was free and two because it had the amazing direct x 12.
Worldwide Windows market share puts 10 over 73% on the desktop.
Nice, thanks for that link. So 15% more win10 adoption rate for PC gamers is not a surprising figure compared to overall desktop market currently.

Given that one of the major themes of Cyberpunk 2077 is being able to modify yourself in the future since you're not limited by what you're born with/as, this decision by the devs made sense to me. It's probably going to stir up a bit of controversy once the game is released.though.
Just having a naked peen on display for choosing is probably going to be controversial (aka full frontal nudity) all on its own. Plus the explicit sex scenes. And if those offend some people... maybe they shouldn't play an adult title like this or the witcher where stuff like that is featured.

It actually makes sense for this title, you are modding your body, so why can't you pick your organs?

I'm new to these surveys and don't know anyone who participates. Is there anyway to see how many people are in the survey? Steam has about 100 million users, but I'm guessing this isnt anywhere near a good average. Most recent info I've seen was win10 had reached about 50% saturation, but mainly due to ipads and notebooks. Neither of which will be able to run Cyberpunk 2077, afaik. Then again, I rarely pay attention to anything win10 related, so I'm sure to be behind the times.

Statistics work in such a way that a representative sample can be within a few percentage points of a distribution, regardless of size. So a few hundred users can tell us the DX distribution for all 100M users, + or - 2%.
They used to have info like that, not sure they do anymore, but as jdreyer says, it's not needed (assuming it's a truly random sampling). It is fresh info too, they do at least fresh surveys yearly. Nowdays it's opt in and they only get your info if you allow them.

I believe when you speak of ipads you are speaking of global PC market. This is the global pc GAMING market. So it's different. Mac OS is only 3.5% of steam customers. Linux is under 1%. Also windows 10 penetration among PC gamers is up to 87%, quite a different situation among gamers than among tablets/laptops/PCs together. All the statistics I mentioned in the previous post were already including Mac and Linux.

Yeah, can't believe they didn't just make it DX11. It would have allowed them to gain 50% more customers, than locking it with DX12.
Incorrect
https://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey/Steam-Hardware-Software-Survey-Welcome-to-Steam
It's only about 10% of average PC gamers who could have played this by supporting DX11 (the other 6% are still running EOL windows 7 and are capable of directx 12 because of MS's weird decision to port that near EOL). And another 2% of that total have the GPU but are running windows 8 and could support DX12 with just a FREE software update, because yes, you can still get windows 10 free if you have 8.

Being able to skip extensive development, Q&A, and testing on DX11 and windows 8, probably saves them a lot of time and money. And for the less than 5% of average gamers who don't have DX12 capable hardware, I'm ok with that. Keep in mind that even Fermi has support for DX12, and nvidia 400 Fermi series goes back over 10 years. If someone hasn't updated their graphics card in over 10 years, maybe it's time to ask for that for this cutting edge game

To give a console analogy, if this game were supporting PS5 and PS4 on release, this request is like asking for PS3 support, while claiming it's half of the market.

Oh I'm already well aware of how much my multi thousand game library has probably cost me. I've even checked out links that analyze such things on an account. This isn't going to change anything. I actually a bit irked that valve didn't credit me points for a longer period

However, I'm ok with a "hide points" option for people who are really bugged by them like this guy.

Congrats to the indie company/devs for making it this far!
Also, get some more DLC already You got one, that's a start

Reminds me of FTL, the author never did any DLC, despite that tons of people including myself would throw money at that, even if it was just a supporter's cosmetic DLC.

Anyone have other games that went from release back into beta?

We know Final Fantasy went back into a complete rework, any else?
Wasn't there a batman game or some such that was pulled off market for PC until it was fixed up?

Plenty of games and software that had all sorts of bugs reported and features suggested that entirely ignored reports and released anyway (including MS) after a test period. So going to closed beta isn't going to do anything unless they take it seriously.

I doubt I'll ever play, but hey, I added the free game while it's available to my steam lol

Until third-party sellers sell the Valve Index VR kit, I won't be allowed to have it. Gibraltar will never be on the list of countries Valve ship to. Even Google still doesn't allow us to have Merchant accounts on their Play Store. We're like in the top 5 GDP per capita in the world.
If you are wanting it, any way you can order it from a friend or someone on ebay or something and get it shipped to you?

Personally I'd recommend the quest. Only $400, can be used standalone, no base station stuff, you can hook it up to PC with the link feature to use your graphics card if you prefer.

Twitch doesn’t have to notify him.
But I guarantee he know why he was booted.
Likely, since I read something about how he got a text and it shocked him then he signed off for last time.

What I don't understand though is why this is such big news? I never heard of him before. But my phone is showing me news about him.

Removing responsibility for what they publish, leaves Internet sites ungoverned and the most fertile field for chaos. We have done just fine as a democracy with paper, TV and radio held to the rule of law. The Internet will do just as fine under the rule of law, instead of almost the complete exemption and carte blanche 230 grants it.

Did you read the article?
The other solution prior to 230 was what compuserv did... which was ZERO filtering. I think there's a balance between "criminalize everything" which was the exon law, and the "zero filtering" which was the solution before 230. And that balance is... surprise! Found in 230 where it's ok to moderate.

It's a very well written article by one of the bipartisan authors of the section 230, and what the thinking was.

What would make you think that?

Oh, just that the US wrote it into law to ban it in Germans laws... you know, way back when...
Sorta kinda like US pressured Japan about indecency laws after the war that carry over today in their blurring out of genitals in media including porn... and in the USA we never got any laws like that
