    I'd love to see those make-believe benchmarks that show PC's in the same price range as the PS4/XBO running games at superior quality/superior framerate. I'm sorry, but this "theory" was already tested by Digital Trends and it's just false at this point in time.
    I double-checked them on that and they're right, it's genuinely hard to match or beat the performance of the PS4/XBO without passing the $500 mark, even when using discounts on Newegg.

    There is a line of logic that argues that as everybody needs a PC* that the $300 you spend on a basic internet and office stuff can be added onto the $500.

    *3 years ago when I first heard that might have been OK. These days I quite often see people use their phones/tablets as their primary personal computing device. Indeed someone's PC dies and I get a call a few days later sometimes or usually in the morning or the following day, someone's tablet (phones I can see as some people seem to think it is worth having one) goes on the blink and watch me get called out on Sunday night.

    I suppose that's one way to look at it, but keep in mind that a basic "office tasks/browsing only" PC can be bought for sub-$200, really. All most people need is just a raggedy laptop with shit specs - it's a far cry from a "gaming PC".

    Can Notch become any more smug? I really want to punch him in the mouth whenever I see him. Sure, because backwards compatibility on PC works so well, forget the thousands of games and applications that no longer work natively on contemporary desktops like 16-bit software, booter software or stuff that was synced to the CPU and as such is a turbo-mess on a modern desktop - all this has to be either emulated or booted on and older computer. Seriously, he made one game that didn't suck dick and now he's Internet Jesus - fuck you, Markus, you're a goddamn neckbeard.

    Oh you mean Steam selling games that won't work on modern OSs and giving 0 support for them? Shit like this is the reason GoG and co are in the market.. :glare:

    At least non-working Steam purchases can be returned now, so no harm no foul. Though I do feel a little bad for people who got burned before and can't fix it now.

    So Wii U. 2012 release, practically 2013 release. 2011 announcement.

    ipad, far from the first tablet or even modern take on tablets at the time but arguably the thing that it rose up on the back of, early 2010 release.

    I suppose the SoC was already made by that time since it takes a while to design, or at least it was in advanced stages of development, but that brings me no joy since it's still underpowered. If a meager performance increase over last gen is all you have to offer, quit while you're ahead.
