How many games on Origin are not from EA, how many on uPlay are not from Ubisoft?

Hint: None

None?

OK. You might want to get a clue before embarrassing yourself any further. Especially Origin has tons and tons of 3rd party games including indies, Kickstarters, everything (The Witcher 3, Wasteland 2, you name it... just hit the URL and get a clue).

And imo it is extremely sad that to show what an open platform is, I actually have to point at STEAM nowadays.

What is really extremely sad is how extremely wrong you are Wink . What exactly is "open" about a Steamworks title that absolutely 100% requires Steam to run? Where is the choice? There are literally hundreds of Steamworks games on Steam.

Also, Valve's own catalog is 100% exclusive to Steam. You can buy EA, Ubi or Activision (just to name a few of the biggies) games on a large variety of platforms from GOG to uPlay to Steam. But Valve are keeping their games Steam exclusive. The only other bigger publisher who is doing this is Blizzard who are keeping their games Battle.net exclusive. Everyone else is way more open and giving people more of a choice where to obtain games.

So, saying that Steam or Valve are particularly "open" or about choice is simply blatantly factually incorrect.

Sweeney is almost completely right. Only a matter of time until MS shuts the gates behind everyone (maybe when Win 10 adoption has reached 90% or so?). It won't be tomorrow, next month or even next year but give it a couple of years and then the hammer will drop.

I disagree with him only in that MS will intentionally fuck with Steam. Why bother?
What they will probably do instead is set a date like Dec 31, 2018 and by that date every new (updated) app needs to be a UWP app and everything that gets installed to a Windows 10 PC needs to go through the Windows store and adhere to Microsoft's Win 10 publishing guidelines.
There will probably be a virtualization kind of compatibility sandbox for older shit but every new app/game will be under Microshit's total control.

Anyone who thinks they are worried about a backlash or shitstorm from gamers is delusional. This ain't Shitbox vs. Playstation. Those fuckers got the DirectX monopoly so it's not like gamers have much of a choice. Besides, MS has done some extremely ruthless things without user consent with regard to the Win 10 free upgrade so it would be a grave mistake to underestimate their ability and willingness to force shit on people.

The writing is on the wall if you take a closer look at Windows 10 and some of its features. The walled garden is in its early stages but it is coming.
It is also interesting how MS basically attributes a value of zero to PC games since you get a free copy if you buy the Shitbox version of some games.
They don't give a fuck about PC gamers except locking them down inside their Shitbox and UWP store world. It is only a matter of time until Steam et al will be forced to follow Microsoft's publishing guidelines on Windows 10.

It is incredibly naive to downplay or ignore these blatant issues. There is a reason why Win 10 is/was free and why they brute-forced the upgrade. The wind of change... it smells of Microsoft feces.

Steam isn't going anywhere. You may THINK Microsoft is stupid, but if they somehow killed Steam support, they'd have an unbelievable number of furious people beating down their door. Microsoft wants to go to UWP apps, fine. Whatever. They aren't stopping people from installing other software, they've just decided where they're going with their OWN products.

No one said "kill" and I specifically said "in its current form". There are a huge number of ways Microsoft could "deal" with Steam and all other programs that are not UWP (yet).

And you believe they care about pissing off anyone? How naive can you be? They had the nerve to secretly background-download (= push) Windows 10 upgrade files to every user's PC without their consent. They also had no problem to force the upgrade on millions of unsuspecting users without their consent. They changed the upgrade app specifically so if you clicked 'x' it would install the upgrade instead of close the window. All of that is outright malicious.

Why would they care about a few million gamers? There'd be a shitstorm and then? Then what? Microshit have the DirectX monopoly. Gamers can suck it up or go and fuck themselves.

Everything that shiho dude said plus if you have eyes and a brain to process what you see then you should be able to see the walled garden approach of Windows 10 from lightyears away.
It is already starting with the UWP apps bullshit and it is only a matter of time until you can kiss programs like Steam in its current form good-bye.

Anyone who has an interest in their OS beyond clicking colorful flashy awesome buttons should be rightfully worried and concerned about the direction Microshit and Windows 10 are taking us.

The current Pascal lineup lacks the same foresight which put the Maxwell lineup in the barn as far as async compute is concerned which leads me to believe the Pascal is nothing more than a stop-gap filler series for what should have been Volta which was pushed back due to AMD having priority to HBM2 modules.

Brace yourselves, a mountain of used Pascals are coming.

Does async compute accomplish the same basic goal as g-sync or free-sync? If so I can understand why they'd be slow to support async; there is a sizable markup on monitors that support their proprietary tech.

Dude, seriously?

Async compute is something completely different. Please use Google to educate yourself. The very short version is it's a feature to distribute the workload between the graphics processors (i.e. the several thousand shader processors per GPU that are organized in clusters) in a better way. Async compute seeks to minimize idle time and make the best possible use of all available processors on the GPU core.

Heh, it wasn't even in the roadmap in 2014, check it out yourself... I don't mind that they played it safe tho, new node, minimal architectural changes from Maxwell, Paxwell was overall a good move.

It was revealed in March 2014:

https://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2014/03/25/gpu-roadmap-pascal/

And they certainly did not make up Pascal on the spot on that day. The point is it has been on their internal roadmaps for a looooong ass time.
Not sure how you guys think chip development works. Ya think they just go from chip to chip and make up shit as they go?
Not quite. These marvels of engineering take several years in the oven. Pascal is the result of several years of R&D, refinement, engineering, sampling, validation and all that shit that goes into chip development.

Complete bullshit.

AMD has no such thing as "priority to HBM2 modules". HBM2 is a JEDEC standard and anyone with the capabilities can manufacture and crank out as many HBM modules as they want. Yes, even you in your garage at home if you have the facilities and the materials.

Secondly, there are two large HBM manufacturers at this time. SK Hynix and Samsung. Samsung has actually been supplying nVidia (not AMD) with HBM2 for GP-100 (Tesla) for several months already.
The single reason HBM2 is not yet found in consumer products is that HBM2 is still expensive as fuck.

Thirdly, Pascal has been on the roadmap for a long time already. Just like Intel's tick/tock there has always been larger architectural shifts in GPUs as well as smaller steps where we just get a shrink plus some optimizations. Pascal is obviously the latter and was never advertised to be anything else. After 20nm had to be skipped, nVidia decided to make Pascal the 16nm shrink of 28nm Maxwell. It's a logical progression and not a "stop-gap filler series".

By the way, I am old enough to remember Baldur's Gate being decline as well. Now that series is treated as something special, but really Bioware always produced uninspired mediocrity. Aged mediocrity that's less mediocre than contemporary mediocrity, is still mediocrity.

What? Someone without rose-tinted glasses of nostalgia telling it like it is and hitting the nail on the head bull's eye?

Re DAO you quit too soon, dude. You are again 100% correct that the game has a shitty, boring start (as usual with BioWhore garbage) but it does get much better later on. The expansion and DLCs are also pretty good. I can't blame you for not sticking with it though because it's definitely boring as fuck the first few hours.

It doesn't help, of course, that the concept of the Darkspawn demon invasion is not just about but is actually as unoriginal as it possibly fucking gets.
In the future, RPG developers making games about demons spawning from portals and overrunning the world should be banned from the market and dissolved by force on the spot (like via an artillery strike with a five minute heads-up to evacuate the fucking building and then *BOOM*). Seriously.

Well, then why did you write "pulling/not adding" as if EA had a choice? They didn't. Steam kicked them out and did not let games with in-game DLC purchases (or otherwise bypassing Steam) into the store anymore.

The rant, by the way, was generally directed at Steam elitist fantards and not specifically at you (unless you consider yourself a Steam elitist fantard, of course).

They said, that Steam was a great and necessary product, or something to that effect. Sort of undercutting ea's original argument, since pulling/not adding new games, on Steam.

Steam is mean, mean, mean because: Steam is trying to force ea to make all dlc available for each game it sells, i.e. Mass Effect 2.

Yep. Get your facts straight. Steam kicked EA out due to a violation of TOS and not the other way around. Besides, some EA games have always remained on Steam and were never pulled (like DAO Ultimate) because they did not violate the TOS. EA has also always had lots of their back catalogue on GOG. That's nothing new at all.

Now how many DRM-free or DRM-ridden games of Valve can you find anywhere else than Steam? Hmmm. That's right. The answer is zero. Valve is the tightest bunghole out there. You can find Ubi and EA games just about everywhere else... Steam, Origin, uPlay, GOG, you name it but the highly praised by fantards Valve and Blizzard are the only assholes who are really locking down their games to a single platform, i.e. theirs.

P.S.: For the black and white binary brain retards, this does not mean I am a fan of EA. I hate their shitty business practices and season passes and casual garbitchification of everything as much as the next guy but some things are really unjustified especially when it is coming from the Steam fantard elitist shitheads who would drink Gabe's piss like it is a 1959 Domaine Rothschild Grand Cru and Gabe's turds like it is a filet mignon and his semen as latte on their macchiato.
