Well the Polish gov't should know they're putting polish on their Polish project. Nothing men like more than getting their, uh, poles polished.

Are you implying the game came out unpolished? :p

Chewbacca is sitting in jail right now.
The Polish government has been busy meddling with their citizens freedom instead of being useful.

I'm sure BOTH people who've managed to score a PS5 will find the list useful.

Am I bitter? Unequivocally, yes. I guess I'll get one next June or something.

I find it particularly annoying that those reviewers are either trying hard to ignore the elephant in the room or are completely oblivious to the fact that the only reason they got a PS5 is that they are press. And overlooking that fact and making articles that can only interest a happy few really stresses how far away in another reality they are from people who read their articles.
Well maybe I am wrong and a lot of people are interested anyway. In that case good for them. If not, at some point they may want to find topics that people wanna read about. One terrible thing is that those companies work hard for one thing, create interest in their products. And having no product to sell really goes a long way to kill any excitement about the products. I was counting on being able to buy a 3080 and instead of feeling frustrated, I am feeling like I am giving less of a fuck every day.

As long as the big corpos spread the lies that consoles can compete with PCs, this kind of disappointment will happen.

Will Cyberpunk be supporting AMD's ray-tracing tech?

Of course. That's what DirectX 12's ray-tracing support is for (DXR). It's the general API for nVidia's RTX and whatever AMD is going to be calling their RT/DXR backend. It seems that people like you are still under the very wrong impression that nVidia has created some kind of exclusive game support with RTX. That is not the case at all. RTX is just the backend. DXR is the Microsoft DirectX API for ray-tracing to make developers' lives easier. nVidia aided Microsoft in the development of DXR because nVidia obviously had the first DXR capable gaming hardware. While the RTX backend could theoretically be addressed directly in "close-to-the-metal" fashion by circumventing DXR (and I believe that in the professional space developers are doing this on Quadro RTX cards), I don't think that there is a single game developer who is doing this. Everyone is using DXR. AMD will support DXR as well.

This^^, RTX is just a marketing buzzword.

A decade ago they would've simply said quietly that they're now "DXR compliant" on Turing going forward.

Damn I miss those much less bullshit days.

Direct X is not required to get Raytracing. The hardware can run on Vulkan also. Viewing the software as more important than hardware.is a mistake. The only purpose of a software is to control a machine's behaviour.Direct X is just a tool to have the hardware communicates with the OS and ther other software, that's not where the hard work lies.

One has to have indeed both a big wallet and a big not really ego. I wouldn't call that an ego. One would have to actually feel miserable to pay 1500 dollars for a device for which the difference between it and the cheaper one is in an order of 50%(Or indeed to be so filthy rich that they dont notice) whereas the differences on screen are much less noticeable. If one wanna flaunt his new rig playing in smooth 4k, it really takes a niche kind of friends.At least if one wanna flaunt their money, it should be on something less confidential :p Well maybe in the most well-off milieus, this kind of thing is the norm but I can't really help but feel sad for these dudes is that's the highest peak of their existence. It's truly pathetic. Like "having" something would make one special. If they think so, they don't really have an ego, much rather a narcissistic wound that never healed. Ahhh to be loved and to understand the meaning of existence.

I have a bad feeling about this...

This doesn't bode well at all for Id games running on OpenGL/Vulkan. And I guess id software games on Linux belonged to another era.
In fact it doesn't bode well for pretty much anything I can think of.
Is MS trying to become the Disney of video games?
Did I mention that this doesn't bode well?

I don't see the problem with giving 30% of a free app. But yeah Apple wants them to make the app non free.
Well as long as buyers are willing to be scammed by Apple, this will be going on.

A female fronted game wouldn't sell? They never heard of Horizon or Tomb Raider I guess? Ubi soft: Primal : The Stone Age... This said I am not sure how having a female fronted game is better than having a choice of gender. It's time for the badass female assassins I suppose.
