I don't know, 500GB PS3 for $149 is cheap in my book, especially as it twice that price last week.

Define "cheap."

'Cause they're not THAT cheap.


Also: Half a million bucks for my GTA Online character? I think I better make a second one to prepare.

Will they allow non-STEAM games to run on the OS?

I'm quite sure the answer is yes. Valve has stated that it will be OpenSource and that its Linux, and that they are approaching this as an open platform. So you should be able to install anything you can install in Linux right now. Will it be "integrated" into your Steam Library? Probably. Currently you can add any of your Windows installed programs into the steam launcher. I see no reason why SteamOS wouldn't allow for this as well. Only issue I see is you might not have Gamepad support for random program X.

Didn't stand a chance..

Honestly, I don't think there is a case on the market that would. At BEST you'd have a case that would send the phone flying at huge G forces that would destroy the internals.

Wow, a balanced article on paypal, I didn't know that was possible.
The big problem for paypal is that people can and do reverse funds for crowdfunding credit card payments. If a crowd funding campaign brings in 100,000 in donations and doesn't produce, paypal can be stuck with 100,000 in chargebacks and no way to reclaim the money. They are going to have to get the credit card companies to change their policies and restrict chargebacks for this type of funding first. How that's possible? I don't know. Maybe during the purchase you have a popup legal agreement that says you are making a donation and can't chargeback. The credit card companies would then need to limit chargebacks for these charges to only issues where your credit card was stolen for example.

That whole share feature was so overblown. What "Share with 10 people!" meant was that you could designate 10 people who then had the opportunity to play a time-limited demo of games you owned. One at a time. As in, if person 1 is playing the time-limited demo of Game A, persons 2-10 had to wait until person 1 was done playing Game A before they could play a demo of it. And all this was only IF the publisher agreed to it.

Is it better than what you have on Steam? Yes. But it would have been so limited as to be almost useless.

I never read anything about the time limit - disappointing and yes this does negate the feature as being useful. I certainly didn't have any expectation of concurrent usage though (and that seems reasonable).

rumor-about-xbox-one-family-sharings-downsides-has-fla-534484570

After MS ditched their DRM stuff, this information was put out by something claiming to work at MS. "When your family member accesses any of your games, they're placed into a special demo mode. This demo mode in most cases would be the full game with a 15-45 minute timer and in some cases an hour. This allowed the person to play the game, get familiar with it then make a purchase if they wanted to. "

MS execs said this was false.


Who knows...

Still though, online buying was their only option, they weren't really offering physical disc sales (which some people, like those in the military need, and it destroys disc rental systems as well) at all. It would have been wonderful if they offered this options for virtually bought games, while keeping the standard disc based games the way they were. But MS basically committed to all or nothing with this system, and everyone choose nothing.

From what I understand the "magic" is really in the graphics chip in the 360. They could do PowerPC emulation plus the real graphics chip and it might work. Will they do it? Not in a million years.

He pretended he wasn't lying, but that he thought Wyden was talking about just email data. Which at that time, they no longer gathered. Because, you know, "are you gathering ANY DATA AT ALL?" is so easily misunderstood. Also, let's be honest here, perjury is only for the common plebs. A government big shot like Clapper would never be charged with perjury.

As for your first question, Obama is truly fucking terrible. He genuinely deserves to be in the Worst Presidents of All Time discussion.

They had at this point already admitted to the phone metadata. They where asked, are you collecting data on millions. They said NO. Which contradicted the metadata they had already admitted to, so they turned around and said, oh yeah, that.. I didn't know you were talking about that.. Honestly it seems more of a blunder to me, why would you lie about something you already admitted to?

I'm confused, does this have legal backing? Could they be sued by Blizzard out of existence? It hints at Blizzards support in the kickstarter, but they really should make clear if there is or is not danger of legal issues.

I honestly doubt that's what he meant. Just because you automate someone's task doesn't mean you fire them. I've heard they are having trouble hiring qualified people. You don't fire someone just because you've automated their job if you can find uses for them elsewhere.

What makes Rift different to other VR headsets we've seen come and go over the years? Is it just hype? Because it was a kickstarter?

I don't ask this cynically, I'd just like to know what makes it the "one" when it comes to making VR mainstream?

Honestly, its just the first to try at a reasonable price with modern display technology.
Its pretty much just two iphone 4 screens, one in front of each eye (they are promising higher res on par with iphone 5 in the next version, no reason that shouldn't be doable), with the same motion tracking that's in your modern cellphone. Just the first to use those pieces to create a consumer priced VR headset. I assume they have some patents, because it would be easy to copy.

Stiff competition that you would need a mighty nice design doc/bucket load of technical goodies (Fully destructible everything and next-gen dynamic AI!) to want to take them on with.


Why would you really WANT fully destructible everything in a story based single player? It really ruins the ability to tell a story if you can go everywhere and do anything. GTA quasi pulls it off, but its a different beast entirely. Yes, multiple paths, but fully destructible means open world

Article summary is NOT even what he said.

"So we can now make our AI instead of just being 20%, 10% of the box's capability, we can make it 600% of the box's capability,"

Meaning he can offload processing to something that is 6 times as powerful as your set top box. Sure, its possible, though I doubt MS would allow you to do such in any more than small burst.

Huh. I swear they said the PS4 would not support 3D, but that just said it was.

No they just didn't have any information on 3D when the console was announced, people took that to mean No 3D support, when it just meant no special 3D support.

I doubt the menu's will be in 3D, but it certainly should play any game designed with 3D support as the PS3 does.

The wget article seemed rather pointless. They provided absolutely no context for that question. If you are going to discuss wget it makes sense to ask the witness if they know what wget is first. I might ask a witness if they know what Firefox was as well.
