So the real news is that there are just too many people in gaming with more money than sense ruining things for everyone.

I agree; the correct way is "Data is".

Some words are always plural, and you can't really have a singular quantity of it. For example: "snow". You would say "The snow is white", not "the snow are white". An individual piece of snow is not "snow", it is a different word. Same with data. An individual piece of data is not called data, it is called a bit. The collection of all the bits forms a singular "data", just like the collection of all the snowflakes forms a singular "snow".

I'm just imagining Blue being like... "the rain are wet" and I can't stop laughing.
Well, "data" is actually the plural of "datum", which is a Latin word that isn't used much in English. So "data are" is technically correct, but it's more formally used in certain contexts. In colloquial usage, it just doesn't sound right, at least to me.

You're absolutely right that this is because they know some people are willing to pay obscene amounts of money. And those people would be annoyed if the lower end cards hit first, and they bought them, then the higher end ones hit
But exactly that happens every generation with the ti/super cards. It's expected, people know it's coming.

I will 100% guarantee that there's a 40X0 to compete with every price point of the Radeon 7000, and that they're actually competitive. They've been doing this long enough to know that, as nice and profitable as whales are, you need the scale of $300 GPU sales to keep development alive.
Of course there will be, I touched on that, and never meant to suggest otherwise. There will be 4070, 4060, 4050 (etc) cards offered at some point. But that's in the future, and doesn't change the state of affairs happening right now.

Yeah. Again, this is naming convention only. It appears they're pushing to stretch the line into higher end products this time around.
That may look reasonable at first glance, but unfortunately, that's not what's happening - these aren't meant to be new ultra high-end products, it's just normal generational tech advancement. Simon laid a lot of it out very well, but it's more than that.

Every new Nvidia generation is the same - a few months before release, production stops on the current GPU generation in order to clear out the remaining supply. Guess what's different this time? Massive overstock of the 3000 series (we all know why, I won't get into that), and Nvidia has already stated that they will continue to sell high-end 3000 cards meant to fill the void of the 4000 series low-end (4060, 4050, etc), at least in the short-term, which is obviously until supply runs out.

So the 4090 is meant to replace the 3090, 4080 16GB -> 3080, 4080 12GB -> 3070 (yes, shenanigans afoot). The main reason for the massive price increase is because they have to sell off the 3000 overstock, but they can't drop the price on those too much or they'd lose money. And they can't price the new 4000 series where they should be, otherwise no one would buy the 3000 overstock. So the only choices are to delay the 4000 release, or price them way above what they're meant to be (above the 3000 cards).

My guess is that they looked at the 3000 scalping market and saw that there were plenty of people willing to pay obscene prices and that jacking up the 4000 MSRP was an acceptable gamble rather than to delay. Many don't agree, including me.

Hopefully AMD decides to undercut them at normal prices instead of also being greedy. Greedy may be good (for them) short-term, but releasing RDNA3 at "normal" prices would highly benefit them long-term. And if they do, then maybe Nvidia will come to their senses and drop the 4000 cards back to normal prices after the 3000 supply is gone.

Though Nvidia has been getting even shadier lately, so I'm not going to hold my breath.

Data are.
I know that this is grammatically correct, but it just looks and sounds completely wrong, I don't like it. My biggest grammatical pet-peeves (aside from the simple stuff like people using the incorrect form of "they're" or "you're"):

1. When ending a sentence with a quote, the period is meant to be inside the ending quote. But this makes no logical sense to me, since most of the time the period isn't actually part of the quote, but is ending the entire sentence. I refuse to do this (unless the quote itself includes punctuation).
2. When an oxford comma is not used. Without it, ambiguity can often be unintentionally introduced, as well as just taking more effort to read. Always use an Oxford comma, people!

Halo Infinite Didn't Meet Microsoft's Financial Expectations.
Mediocrity aside, perhaps the decision to release the game long before the co-op campaign was finished, which is arguably the most popular aspect of the Halo franchise, may have played a part?

I know that's the reason why I and all my friends have not touched the game yet.

The first US video game studio to unionize is shutting down.
This headline could be taken to imply that the union is in some way related or responsible for the studio shutting down. For anyone who didn't read the article, I wanted to clarify that they are not related - it's just a bad title.

Let's be honest. The cops in cp2077 weren't/are not broken, that's how they was originally developed.
In other words 'lazy' development. Now go away now....
What? If there's one thing CDPR definitely isn't, it's lazy. The game was just shipped before it was finished, it's as simple as that. They didn't have the time to flesh out the system as they originally wanted, so we got the current half-baked system.

Honest indeed.

I'm sure there's far more to making cops chase you in cars than just typing <police.chase-you.in_cars="true"> into the game's engine.
Well of course that won't work. The value "true" is wrapped in quotes, which makes it a string when it should be a boolean. Rookie mistake, CDPR. I'll send you my bill.

I saw this advertised in Ubisoft Connect the other day and I was interested in possibly checking it out. But now learning that it's a subscription model, I have absolutely zero interest. Even if I wasn't completely against it in principal (I am), I wouldn't be using it often enough to justify the cost.

Way to kill a popular product Ubisoft.

FIFA 23 Seemingly Just Leaked, a Month Early.
How much could there be to leak? I'll be exactly like FIFA 22, except with a slightly updated roster, more bugs, and more microtransactions (although for this series, "micro" seems wholly incorrect).
