Eeww, 100 Teraflops. Talk to me dirty.

I'll talk dirtier to you... SIX HUNDRED WATTS.
Entering the metaverse is not without its costs.

6 times MSRP
6 times the demand of former 3000 series
6 times the profit margins back to Nvidia and everyone inbetween

Wishing all the best to the team behind this project. looking very much forward to it. Hope to have this as a spiritual successor to Dune2 and original CnC95 from WW studios. I really hope ambient music is reminiscent to that which was in Dune2 rts, by Frank Klepacki

organization and common sense would lead to less chaos, hence reduced profits. Look at Netflix, here we are.

nevertheless, I miss GoG, I'll go check em out. I haven't purchased a steam game in several years anyhow. I just add to my wishlist , which is now longer than a dead sea scroll.

workaround.... uninstall game.

that might only work for the next person to purchase this game and add to the 65,900th negative steam review, helping EA to earn a record 7B in profit for 2022

Is this added Oversight an ingredient responsible that will in turn make Diablo 4 great again?

I would be so very Thankful. Glasses2

' everyone happy now? ' only if all of the below are met:

Blizzard splits away from Activision back to it's original form

Jay Wilson comes back as Chief [insert term here] Officer of the Diablo franchise

Diablo 4 productions starts over from scratch (make the true successor to D2)

Everyone that was ever banned from their forums for merely asking: ' Hello , How are you today? ' to be reinstated.

Otherwise, this company is dead in the water. take note shareholders, you're holding on to the shortest straw atm.

Something is seriously wrong when a game company in business for decades can't run a simple game server.

It's not that they can't, it's the fact that they choose to. For there is no profit for said companies when the masses are only playing one game. Hope this sheds light as to the reason D3 turned out to be the CareBear atrocity that it did. If cancel culture can be voted democratically on, top of my list would be Activision. For the love that is all holy on Data Center cloud storage Activision, please do us a favor and cancel D4 while your ahead.

Not sure if any of you remember Day 1 of Diablo III, but this same thing was happening to dozens of videocards and powersupplies that I was servicing to replace all week at a shop.
<insert Atari Kaboom joke here> The mere login screen to D3 sent temps to boiling point and pronto.


could very well be collusion between AAA publisher , and AAA hardware vendors to get people to upgrade. did you really trust Activision to ever not do such a thing?

We really need to start another one. high time to clean up the apathetic shop in this world. a crusade against gang violence in developed cities would also be nice. and the best crusade really , would be against media conglomerates that perpetrate misinformation to the unwashed masses every second of every day. zero remorse to pluck them off of this planet.

Breh, there's like walls of 6800 and 6900 cards at my local microcenter, also they had like 40x 3080 and 3090's. Daw em a few days ago, couldn't believe my eyes. I think the drought is over.

the general GPU shortage will loom throughout 2022 and into 2023. whether this is collusion or not, the ongoing (perpetrated and strategic shortage) is basic fact. the old days where Vendors had to inject money to clear out aging inventory is long gone. the absolute inverse is now happening where the consumer has to pay a high price for his mainstream wants. not limited to GPU, this is now the mantra for all that is tangible and commodity based. welcome to our new world order. also, freight costs associated to bring in said articles from asia, is nearing 30,000 dollars PER CONTAINER. this is a near ten fold increase from a few years ago since the dawn of oceanic transport. caveat emptor everyone.

Excellent from page news , thx Bluesnews. This was the best initial gaming experience I ever had back in the late 80's. It must have been a different life on a different planet. I urge everyone to experience what was stereo sound, NTSC grade color graphics, sprite animations, pioneer video game offerings from artists we know and love, all whilst the IBM/Intel PC was bleeping from its internal speaker. What a time to be alive it was.

Another World, Battle Chess, Speedball , excellent start.

If I may suggest in no particular order: (probably still heavily license protected) Barbarian , Test Drive , Future Wars (Delphine entertainment) , Weird Dreams (seriously, these are the weirdest dreams ever on screen) , Stunt Car racer (why no remake to this day boggles the little mind I have left) , Secret of Monkey Island , Lemmings, Shadow of the Beast (listen to this musical score, Blood Money , Twin World. to name a select few off the top of my head.

I parted with my A500 long before AGA Amiga 1200 hit the scene, I am not versed in that era of new games, sure there must have been greats. Super Cars or II , comes to mind.

This company needs to die a good death, one which cannot be imbued in any soulstone. Thanks for the memories with early Warcraft, Starcraft, and Diablo 1 and 2, but please, since your poisoned merger and carrot on a stick D3 and condescending forums, please direct me to where I can go pee on your designated plot, ActiBlizzard. good riddance.

The only reason I will buy and play through D2R is for the high confident hopes, that I will finally rid of the D3 memories once and for all. imho, D3 is the worst iteration in AAA franchise history. I don't have any hope for D4, as it is from the same shareholders of company.

Net revenue of 1.44 billion is not profit. this is simply 1.44 billion of confirmed sales after any "returns, refunds, doa"

the gross profit margin, being a percentage of this , in this case 23% of 1.44 billion, is still a phenominal amount of 1.44 formatted capacity floppy diskettes!
