Microsoft’s Project Scorpio is awesome. It means finally everyone’s a PC gamerMicrosoft’s Project Scorpio is awesome. It means finally everyone’s a PC gamer

This is a completely different kind of hardware update than any console generation has had in the past. The performance uptick from the Scorpio is way ahead of a simple re-engineered Xbox Slim.


I also don't believe that either MS or Sony will start from scratch and completely redesign their console architecture again. Financially now it is too great a risk for either one of them to move too far away from the current PC-based design.

the entire appeal of consoles is the fact you buy a console you put a disc in and it works, they start blurring those lines they will lose a larger portion of their user base than anything else.


the PS4 is still a multi million unit selling console and still Sony's biggest money maker, it would be suicide for Sony not to force people to buy a new console and in turn sell on the devkits and dev rights to the new system.


Microsoft at the moments is reaping the ill will that came on the back of them trying to go more towards PC with near 100% digital sales and requiring to be online for the software security and locking games to the system, I say they are still suffering as their sales after that aren't even close to the PS4.


yes the systems are doing more yes this generation saw a bigger jump as both firms held back to reduce system costs at launch and at the time 4K was miniscule it's still a relatively niche market. so yeas there is a slightly different upgrade to the last generations, but not if you remember the fact the original version of the 360 didn't even support HDMI.


as I said it is par for the course of the hardware half life refresh.

all that to say it's no different to last generation? the PS3 and 360 both seen hardware upgrades going from standard to slim consoles to the point they put an inhibitor in the 360 to allow the new console to play the old games without having to do any software work going back over the game list.

the PS4 and X1 refresh is no different and to the majority of people using 1080 screens (and it is a majority) there are the same minor upgrades as the last generation, the only difference comes if you have a 4K TV. but then the PS4 Pro doesn't have a 4k bluray drive.

as for no new console there will be a new generation in a few years, every generation of consoles since the PS1 has had this same hardware refresh it isn't anything new and to make assumptions it is something new would show a lack of understanding how the console market has worked for the last 20 or so years. each console has a 6 - 7 year life cycle with a half life refresh, so from 2013 to 2016 you have 3 years falling pretty much in line with every generation before.Reply

"it was only FF11 offline."


No it was not.. I played FF11 for 6 years, and played FF12 for 1000's of hours. Neither game had anything to do with each other, they are not even based on the same planets/dimensions. Totally different stories and characters with no relation whatsoever!


You have no idea what you are talking about Belimawr.

I never said they were the same story, changed names and stories doesn't stop it being basically the same game.


it was closer to the style of FF11 than it was anything that came before.

Seems there might be a jury-rigged 16-core/32-thread Ryzen CPU on its way soonSeems there might be a jury-rigged 16-core/32-thread Ryzen CPU on its way soon

why would you want to pay for this?

most games cap out on performance on a quad core chip, so for gaming this will offer nothing over the lesser chips. I've never got AMD's obsession with needing to have more cores, if they spent the money on trying to get more cores on core architecture they would be a lot stronger on core to core comparisons instead of often relying on heavily threaded programs and bench tests to outshine the competition.Reply
Dave James Avatar

At a guess I'd say it's probably a simpler problem working out how to jam more cores onto a die than to get one up to the single-threaded throughput of Intel's.


AMD are operating with a tenth of the R&D budget of Intel, so I still kinda think the CPU and GPU tech they do put out is seriously impressive in that context.

New Windows 10 anti-bloatware update attempts to block installation of Win32 appsNew Windows 10 anti-bloatware update attempts to block installation of Win32 apps
Belimawr Avatar
windows 10 (and vista, 7 and 8) throws up warnings every time you change a setting or install something, quick we better all run for the hills because windows is controlling us.......

oh wait you can turn that feature off as it is only there to protect inexperienced users, likely the same as this.

ever since the earliest EULA/TOS you have only ever owned a licence that was non transferable, just until recently it could never be enforced, so nothing has changed other than the security software.

Keep in mind too that even if EULAs are found unenforceable, in the DD market you are not selling products, you are selling services. That is, you are selling to an end-user an authorization to receive a digital product through a game store.

As part of the terms of service, this service you purchase is for your own use only, and cannot be transferred to another person.

There are Steam Gifts, however, that is only for one to gift the service to a friend and not authorized to be re-sold for a profit.

why do all these things have to be videos now? I realise it is easier than having to actually write something but I honestly hate going to sights and then have to sit and watch someone prattle on about random things to fill time instead of being bale to just go to a web page and reference what I want to know or see without having to sit through a bunch of stuff I have no interest in.

honestly I think video will be the death of these types of site as they are making them self redundant as if you are just going to have to watch a video you may as well go watch videos by some high end youtuber instead of someone trying to jump on the youtuber bandwagon to get clicks.Reply

On the contrary, videos is what makes sites like this more money than ad revenue on their site.


I never watch the videos either and would like it if whatever they said in the video also was available to read. That way it would cater to both groups.
