So I read the comments there and it was glorious.
And meanwhile, I believe it was confirmed that the Playstation 4 has now reached 22.3 million consoles sold, as well as having sold 2 million units in the UK making it the fastest selling Sony console since the Playstation 2.
B-b-b-but PS4 no gaemz Sony r worse den mfia nin10doh5lyfe
Oh yeah? Too bad consoles are dead
Read 'em and weep, peasants ;O;
Oh boy. Do you imagine the amount of butthurting and #PC MASTERRACE it would have been creating if it was in front page?
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".
Xbox One outsells PS4 last month
We like to take our victories while they last here in the silver medal club
At least you have a medal, some are still running in the race. ;O;
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..
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.
In this episode of "Nintendo has no clue" Miyamoto acknowledges the Wii U as a failure and... blames a high price point and tablets for "stealing its thunder":
Their next system is going to be "affordable", which in tech speak roughly translates to "outdated and underpowered". Great. ;O;
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.
What ideas? How to make a poor console?
