Won't see it till it hits bd bu I'll see it. I'm happy for it. I read how Hollywood is really pissed how it's been so successful after bending to social media in the first movie. With the need for a new actor I am wondering if they will finally design eggmans overweight shape into the next actors character design.

GTA 4 was, while beautiful, just an awful performing engine everywhere you went. The console performance sucked. The pc performance sucked. Even today there are still issues that prevent it from becoming gta 5 levels of smooth. On the other hand, gta 5 was a god damn masterpiece. Even one the xbox and ps3 it was smooth. I noticed right off the bat that there simply wasn't any performance dips. Even when big explosions happened. Even when your mission took you on the train and one view had you viewing the side of the train and the other had full on streaming landscapes behind the character, it still stayed 30fps!

I don't recall any performance hiccups in the pc release either. It ran very well and not surprisingly after it had a year to port to next gen and then another year just for the pc port.

If we looked at red dead redemption, Sure they did a lot in the game to bring down performance, but thankfully newer hardware just made things better. I'll admit that it isn't %100 like gta5 though, even with a banging pc it is difficult to find a flawless framerate in rd2. Adding FSR really helped with its 4k goals. Anyways, it is gta.. I won't even think about expectations until another 2 years.

tis a shame about the new NFS, I really doubt the game has enough cutting edge visuals to prevent it from running on a last gen console, but it is their profits to be lost. Honestly I think a last gen versions will probably see the light of day at a later date because there are more active players and payers on the older consoles that have not been able to upgrade.

That has to be the stupidest thing I've heard in the last month. That isn't even an argument let alone the topic at hand.

If you want backward compatibility, just get a PC. There's literally nothing a console can do that a PC can't.

Anyways... as per ps3 compat, don't freaking count on it. There is no magic wand, the ps3 utilizes a whole bunch of task specific processors working together. Using modern PC architecture like the ps4 and ps5 does would require GREATLY overpowering the ps3 in software based emulation. It is a pipe dream that cannot be realized because sony choose a bad way to design their console. A huge library was remade in HD for the ps4 and those will then work with the ps5 and all consoles of the foreseeable future.

Meh, the multi processor nature of the PS3 requires the effort of an hd remake to bring a game to a current console.

Kasperky moved the servers the non Russia world uses outside of Russia. They have a great piece of software and you shouldn't be worried, but be vigilant.

fixed wireless is going to have a lot of issues, we all know the pain of data over cellular. It is very inconsistent, and god forbid you need tech support. However I am very glad it exist, it is an option, and option for people who can't get wires to their home for what ever reason. Starlink is also going to be a big contender in this space, and I think cell carriers will have their hands full when a 400MBps wireless link also runs $75.

That said if a $75 fixed wireless plan can also translate to your phone service, having an unlimited data service you can take where ever you go could be worth it.

Firefox is the base of a couple of ultra privacy browsers out there, they really need to hop on that and be loud. I would really like to transition over to one of them but I'm not sure where to jump first. They just need to make a browser that gives max tracking protection without breaking sites. I'm sure you ask anyone and they will tell you they tire of all the cookie request and google/facebook/amazon scrounging up their data.

Re: windows updates. They need to make it so the updates an happen in the background and not need reboots. They still take a considerable amount of time to apply on my gaming PC with Samsung's fast m.2 storage.

Haha I was checking the same. I am very interested in how Ms handles games like call of duty. Making it an ms exclusive would shatter it's popularity and income. At the same time sony will want to press on their first parties to fill the void.

I'll give apple props for quickly applying a remedy to this issue. I just recently read how these tags were being used to mark cars in public so the thief could steal the car when it was back home. Originally other peoples tags would not be identified while sending the tags location to apple, I am sure as to not alert other people that a valuable lost item is near by. Clearly the resulted abuse was not intended.

I think buying cod every year and having them quickly die out because they come out every year is a problem. They should run CoD like destiny. Each game can be more of a campaign and maps, allowing your character to jump in and out of them. This allows players to build into a character they can use in all their fav war campaigns, and not have to give them up when a new one comes out. This also makes it easy or create incentives like dailies to keep older content relative. Offer cosmetics as RMTs, reduce the investment need to rewrite the game every year, and put it twards a robust cheat and moderation system and you will get plays who will stay.

Agree. 3dfx made good 3d commonplace. Anyone could add it to their current pc and the api was easy enough for game makers to add to their games. They also smartly made the chip but left the boards up to other hardware makers creating competition. They got so much right on the first try at a time when so many like ati and millennium were doing 3d so wrong. The only reason they died so fast is lack of future reading. Business decisions like dropping pass through and not supporting higher quality video modes.
That said, I dont think we would be in a stone age without 3dfx. psx had its 3d chip right around the corner and was not influenced by 3dfx at all so it is very possible the psx could very well start off a successful 3d revolution. After all despite its limitations, the majority of games moved to 3d quickly even though both sony and especially sega expected 2d games to continue. The thirst for better 3d and the large money in the console market would have been enough. However 3dfx showed there was money to be made in the pc market for extreme gamers. Pc gaming would probably be much worse off without 3dfx.
