I suspect what we'll see here is 4K bluray hardware support going in. Not 4K gaming. Sony isn't going to fragment their player base, not with how successful the PS4 has been. They have everything to lose by attempting that.

Both Life is Strange and Her Story are pretty good actually. And while I love Witcher 3, a game shouldn't necessarily require a budget in the tens of millions, massive advertising budget and a team of hundreds to win an award.

Sure PC's have better hardware when it comes to gaming, if you're willing to spend the money. But to recreate even the basic $350 console experience on a PC (27" monitor, 5.1 surround sound, decent audio/video cards), you're in for at least $2000 and the sky's the limit from there.

God there's so much misinformation in your post I don't even know where to start. This is a PC news site and you're not gonna be able to spew your FUD here like it was some youtube comment section.

Start by reading this and then tell me you need $2000 to get the "basic console experience"

I built this system for three fiddy, but a wii console beat it. I needs me some of that basic console build goodness.
Intel Core i7-5820K @ 4.4GHz - 1.31vCore | MSI X99s XPower AC| 16GB of Corsair Dominator DDR4 @ 2200MHz 16-18-18-36-2T | NVIDIA GTX TITAN X SLI | Corsair H80i CPU Cooler with Gentle Typhoon fans | Samsung 48" JS9000 4K | 4 x Corsair Force GS 480GB SATA 3 6Gb/s SSDs | 3 x Western Digital 2TB Spinning Drives | Silverstone Raven 3 Chassis | Silverstone Strider Gold 1200W PSU
the build belongs to Kyle_Bennett HardOCP Editor-in-Chief

Kyle Bennett is a dink.

Let the hate flow through you

You've been here for a long time, you know how it goes on blues. First, this is a new IP, that means it's not an HD classic remake. Second it's Ubisoft. Third, it's a console game.

MOAR HATE!!!!!
Oh I know how it goes, game is still fun even if it ticks off all those boxes.

Not really into this type of game myself, but maybe I'll grab it on sale. Sounds kinda neat though.

Yeah I believe Frontier released their specs for Elite with the Vive and it was a 980. Obviously it depends on the game.

If you guys really want lulz, check out an apple fan blog this morning. The comments on this story are pure gold. So many fanboys, so pissed off. And almost none of them know how this stuff works.

I guess you can always play The Last of Us, Bloodborne, The Order: 1866, and Uncharted on your Windows 7

Streaming soon.


To be fair, that's streaming and while welcome, it's not the same.

Hopefully the DRM is cracked quickly to make it work with Win 7. This shit won't make me downgrade. XD

The way the windows store games work, I don't see that happening. There isn't even an exe. Plus I think it uses D3D12.

I'm an ole man these days, but don't feel as old as the comments I read here. Not sure if there is a better gaming site now with some fresh optimism. But overall this audience seems to be getting too old for my pov.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one feeling this way/noticing these things. I registered in 2002, and honestly, it seems like 1/4 - 1/3 of the comments these days seem to be stuck in that year for all the relevance they have to computing/gaming in 2016.

It's been that way for a while, with a lot of people endlessly complaining about modern games being terrible or dumbed down or consolized. It makes me wonder how some people stay in the hobby when they hate everything.

There are some fantastic posters here, but the negativity ultimately pushed me to be here less and be elsewhere more (much to the joy of some posters.)

Oh yeah, me too. I used to come here and read the posts all the time. There were good discussions. But for the last while it's just been endless griping. Any thread on Microsoft and Star Citizen are just toxic. Try defending either, in even the smallest way and you get shouted out.

And if it's like everything else on the Microsoft store, no v-sync, non-windowed or SLI options, just like Gears of War that snuck out today. I was briefly excited about GOW until people were complaining about the complete lack of graphical settings.

I thought SLI was confirmed to work, but the developer has to enable it or something.

Just ran the Steam test, and my rig failed completely. Not sure how, get 9800-10100 in Fire Strike, OC 970 with a 4.6 6600k, yet my indicator arrow is on the far right end of the red, indicating not even close to being ready, and it says my 970 is the problem.

Edit: After running the test 3-4 times, the final test resulted in a "7", and the arrow being in the middle of the green "ready". Not sure why the other 3 tests failed.

Same for me, though I have an older 780ti (I think the 780ti and 970 are roughly equivalent in power). It was red, then it was yellow, then it was green twice.

Yeah I have a 780 too so I thought I would fail, in the end it had me right in the middle and said GPU was the problem. Which is what I figured. But then I noticed that it said Number of Frames below 90fps: 0. If it has no trouble reaching 90fps, what's the problem? I'll run the test again maybe.

I read an article some months ago about people using devices in their pockets to scan the chip cards in peoples wallets. Just by walking close to them or bumping into them on the street. But there's supposedly wallets out there meant to block those.

Give it less than a year and chip cards won't be anything special safety wise. They'll figure it out.
You can't scan chip cards like that. Chip cards require direct contact to interface with, as they're not wireless devices. Plus the card is designed in such a way that you can't reuse authentication tokens, so even if you could connect to a card, you need the chip for each and every transaction you attempt.

It sounds like you confused chip cards with NFC/RFID.

Yeah it's the NFC scanners that I've heard about people using to steal money. As long as the dollar amount is below $30 or something, then a PIN isn't required. Technically I suppose it's true. I've used my CC to pay that way and I don't see any reason a thief who had the hardware couldn't utilize it that way. You can get cards for your wallet that are supposed to shield them against this type of gadget. I have one, but I haven't tried putting it to the test yet.

Lol. I was trying to think of a joke for Alan 10. Couldn't come up with anything. But you, sir, have found it.

I'm hoping Microsoft has learned not to use 'exclusives' to try to sell hardware or new OS, or to monetize something, or anything. It worked once with Halo, but honestly so many other times they have tried it (that I am aware of), it has failed, sometimes hilariously so, to the point where I think of MS nerds with pocket protectors jumping up and down screaming 'Curses! Foiled again!'. It's just so transparent and people hate it.

I mean, when I see a Games for Windows or (God forbid) Games for Windows Live sticker on something, that is literally reason enough for me to put the box down and walk out of the store (or online store, or whatever). It's really that bad.

Exclusives have been used to sell console hardware since the beginning. You can't tell me Bloodborne, Uncharted and The Last of Us haven't moved more than a few Playstation's. I don't see it changing anytime soon.

Also, YES A NEW ALAN WAKE!!!!!

Yes, that is completely true, and Sony and Nintendo are really good at it. But that wasn't my point. My point was that Microsoft are nowhere near as good at it with the XBox, and unutterably and Doofenshmirtz-comically bad at it with the PC.

I dunno, Halo and Gears of War did pretty good in the past. They're not my cup of tea but they were pretty well received. They definitely won't quit trying though, or they'll simply be the one company that DOESN'T have exclusives. And then there will be no reason for anybody to buy their kit.

I'll try this when I get home. I have 2 SSD's, 16GB, i7 4770 (oc 4.5Ghz), but a 780 GTX. So I'm not sure it'll be enough. I can't get any of these VR kits in 2016 anyway, so I figured I might just wait for one of those new fancy FinFET HBM2 GPUs that AMD and Nvidia are releasing soon and grab both at the same time. Still unsure how I'm going to tell my wife that that $2000 I just spent was on virtual reality. Frankly, I simply don't understand why that should irritate her. Makes perfect sense to me.
