Fun Fact: On PC, the data is that the launch day peak concurrent players of Borderlands 3 is about *twice-as-high* as the all time peak concurrent players of Borderlands 2.

Because there's more people today who played BLs 1 and 2. Obviously the peak concurrency is going to be higher. That's not an indicator for the game's success, Ditchford.

Wait, what? No. What?

So what is your metric for of "success" then? What unit of measurement are you using, also, do the constants "more=bad" and "less=good" exist in your universe?

It looks amazing visually, here's hoping they don't forget the RPG and Stealth elements.

FYI, yes you guys are weridos for not playing SS2!

Am I alone in thinking that visually it looks incredibly dated? I mean the art assets look good, but the engine, the amount of detail... I hate games that just remind me that games are still being made with the original Xbox One as target spec. This looks like it was made with Unreal Engine 3 for the PS3 or something

2020 console cycle can't get here fast enough. PS4 and XBone were already dated hardware when they released 6 years ago... It really shows.

All I know is Digital Foundry gave the PC port extremely high praise.

Yeah I watched that video, the graphical options are Crysis-level.

Still looks like a boring game tho. And even with all the tweaks, has a very last-gen feel.

News Comments > Initial Borderlands 3 Reviews Will be U.S. Only

I called it, that's why pre-loads only came together at the last minute. They don't have a solid encryption system yet. Although you'd think there were some watermarks or something in the metadata that would pose as an identifier to review copies, incase any of them landed on the torrent sites on or before launch.

Either way, it comes off as either incompetent or unfair, even though I'm betting there's a real technical hurdle they're trying to overcome underneath the surface. Or as someone postulated, some security risk with European reviewers? Who knows. What we do know is that the first week after launch is usually when a game makes their money back, or doesn't.

But don't most people playing these games buy on console anyways?

I'm out of the loop, what did Pitchford do to make gamers hate him other than putting Boarderlands 3 on EGS? We all know him for his ego and genral lack of couth, but what was his mortal sin that turned everyone against him that has nothing to do with EGS?

Abzu is supposed to be good, I got it for my Hexbox One and haven't gotten around to playing it yet. I miss really engrossing well crafted AAA single-player games. Cyberpunk can't get here soon enough, cause I just keep going back to playing multiplayer shooters...

OHHH so basically CDPR just announced that they plan on charging FULL PRICE for an unfinished game just like EA!!!

Couple things:

1) What game doesn't cost FULL PRICE? No matter what the number is, I'm assuming that it's full price at launch.

2) Inferring that post-launch content and support is equal to releasing an unfinished game is a fallacy.

If they delivered only SP, you'd be 100% content that it was a "finished" game. But they say they're going to release more content later, so now it's unfinished? Where does that lead us? So any game still actively supported post-launch is "unfinished"? Is the only "finished" game one where all support and production has ceased? Would you consider World of Warcraft an unfinished game? They've been releasing content for 15 years...

I do remember some story about an EA game, Battlefield 1 maybe? Where they released the first DLC free for everyone, but everyone was just mad insisting that the product on release was unfinished lol. Seems like some developers just can't win.

What's the play here? If you were the game company, what would you do?

just upgraded to a 240hz monitor, it makes a considerable difference from 120hz. 240 to 300 is a hard sell though. Would rather do what i did and overclock the pixel timings to ensure I'm getting the black frame insertion @ 480hz flawlessly. I have zero ghosting.

It's probably not a server bandwidth issue, but more an encryption issue. If someone cracked the game from a preload, that would be bad. This used to happen if I'm not mistaken back in the early days of direct downloads.

I think i wanna jack into my 65" tv for this @ 4k, problem is finding a long HDMI cable that actually works at 60fps 4k

Does HDMI suffer from signal degradation over distance?

Oh fuck yea it does. I'm Running 25 feet and I can only do 30 FPS. Anything more and the screen just blacks out, flashes, colours warp, artifacts etc. etc. etc. Tried 3 different long cables, no diff. There's a reason HDMI 2.0 cables that come with like a 4k box, xbox one X etc are all equal or lass than 6 feet. Hoping that the new 2.1 standard will solve this, but those cables I can't find over 10 feet right now, still early (HDMI 2.1 is 3x the bandwidth of 2.0, 18 to 48 gbps, and it's a bandwidth issue).

Some rare days when all the stars are alligned I can run 4:2:0 10-bit at 60 fps for like 5 minutes before it craps out, but that's just like a static image mostly, the more data (busier the scene) the more it chokes out. And 60 fps 4k HDR videogames are just about the hardest, densest things to drive.

Solution is just moving the PC closer, but I don't wanna do that everytime.

And Thanks for the suggestion KxMode, but as far as I know the Shield doesn't do HDR streaming. Besides, the native output bandwidth should be about 18 Gbps from Hdmi, using compression to even 100 mbps is a huuuuge picture quality downgrade. Like going from a reference UDH Blu-ray to internet streaming (still really good internet streaming, but streaming nonetheless).
