Someone asked me the question a while ago and I thought I would share the information with you: what are the most used web browsers among GBAtemp visitors/users? The answers lie in the table below. Even though GBAtemp is not representative of the entire Internet obviously (we are merely a "subset" composed of tech-savvy and tech-friendly people, geeks, nerds) it is still interesting to see the trends among such a subset.

The table shows overall web browser usage from January 1st, 2014, until today which means a total of 75 days. We can see that over 4.5 million visits, nearly half were from visitors using Google Chrome, and a little less than 25% were using Firefox.

Obviously, tech friendly visitors know better than to use Internet Explorer. *wink*
What are your thoughts on this particular stat? What web browser do you use?

On March 20th the highly-anticipated and quite controversial sequel to the Metal Gear Solid franchise, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, will slither onto our last and current gen systems, and to sweeten the deal, PlayStation Blog Europe has announced a pretty interesting promotion.

Anyone who pre-orders Metal Gear Solid V for the PS3 on PSN will also receive a digital copy of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD completely free of charge. That's hitting... two snakes... with one stone! Yeah, that sounds about right.

The promotion lasts until the 20th of March (obviously), so if you plan on getting the game, now would be the best time to order it.

So this bit surprised me. First off, I apologize for my absence. Had to deal with some other things off-site. I was going to take a small break to catch up with my own life, but this piece really got my attention earlier today. For those of you wondering, this guy is Cheon Min-Ki, a pro-level League of Legends player hailing from South Korea. From what I have heard, this young man is good enough to be considered the top 0.5% in the world. As of this morning, he attempted suicide by jumping off a twelve story building. Why? It turns out, the team he represented, AHQ Korea, was a sham team that made profits off of losing (fixing games) and then making profits off of the underdog winnings. Min-Ki was not directly responsible for the incident, however. This guy's teammates and himself were basically strung along for the ride, leaving his manager, Noh Dae Chul, responsible for the crimes. I'll discuss more about this after the break, but this case definitely is interesting as it shows how some aspects of gaming are not as clean-cut as we would like to imagine.
