    UPDATE GameStop's stock closes today at $347.23 per share; up from under $4 last year

    Correct. I understand the balancing part for when it's overvalued. It can be argued though, as many people have argued against shorting. It was made illegal in China and a few other countries afaik. EDIT: Google says banned in France, Spain, Belgium, Italy, Canada, etc) But in this case, I'm...

    UPDATE GameStop's stock closes today at $347.23 per share; up from under $4 last year

    Can you explain that part? Afaik, the shorts would want the price as low as possible for maximum profit.. If they borrowed 1000 shares at $20, for a total of $20,000, and sold them. Then bought them back later at $1 each.. they'd gain $19,000 minus interest on the short. If they borrowed 1000...

    UPDATE GameStop's stock closes today at $347.23 per share; up from under $4 last year

    Haven't seen anyone discuss how it got to 140% in the media or here.. but I will explain what I know (note I do NOT work in the Financial Market and I'm not a Financial Advisor).. Feel free to correct wherever my understand is wrong. There are two ways to short a stock 140%. One is legal, the...

    Hacking Can someone create a thread about trusted SX OS modchip installers by region

    Yup. The giant mall at Steeles and Kennedy with all asian stores and the DDR game (Dance Dance Revolution) and Initial-D racing game upstairs. Literally feels like you're in China.

    Hacking Can someone create a thread about trusted SX OS modchip installers by region

    Pacific Mall in Toronto, Canada at Kennedy and Steeles. Any tech store will do it actually. They mod PSP's and all other moddable consoles for you.

    Sony loses court case involving PlayStation Store refunds in Australia, results in $2.4 million fine

    Stupidity? Why? You don't even know me. It's not like I research EVERY single game before purchasing it. Secondly, are you really calling me stupid because I POSSIBLY purchased the wrong game and within 10 minutes of realizing asked if they would exchange it for the correct one or let me...

    Sony loses court case involving PlayStation Store refunds in Australia, results in $2.4 million fine

    I bought COD Modern Warfare 2 because it was advertised as having multiplayer (should have checked Reddit or somewhere first, but I didn't). I downloaded it and it didn't have it. The same day I messaged Sony for a refund.. I was told: "Since the game has already been downloaded or streamed, we...

    Nintendo files two new lawsuits against TX-related resellers

    This is false. By-passing/Circumventions is completely legal when done correctly. IE: Blackbox by-passing is just one example. One famous case of reverse engineering was the first non-IBM implementation of the PC BIOS which launched the historic IBM PC compatible industry that has been the...

    [UPDATE] 'The Last of Us Part II' leaks hint to major spoilers

    You can hear the soylent in Druckmann's voice as he explains why females in a game should not be sexy. Insane that the game gets destroyed by one man. There wasn't anything wrong (or sexy) with the first game.. unless you find swollen deformed zombies that spray spore and bleed on every part of...

    The road to PS5 "deep dive" reveal stream - roundup

    Yeah well I blame Sony for even attempting to follow that. I mean, it's not a money issue. I'm sure if BC was 100% ppl would still pay the price to be able to play their games and if I have to pay for some small texture upgrades and ray-tracing patches, I'd do it at least. But to say "We've...

    The road to PS5 "deep dive" reveal stream - roundup

    Sony's internal SSD is most likely proprietary anyway.. them allowing an extra SSD that has to be faster than their internal one is going to be hard to come by.. so they will simply sell their own SSDs that match the internal one's speed and power. Even though it's M.2, it will probably only...

    Sony struggling to keep PS5 cost down

    Looks like you don't even understand what I meant by your GPU has been through the gutter in the last 5 years. I meant, when you buy such a GPU, someone else was already mining with that GPU religiously. That's why the price is so insanely cheap on Ebay. A GTX 1060 for $80 is something NO ONE...

    Sony struggling to keep PS5 cost down

    It's made up because you literally went to Ebay (not amazon, not any computer stores, not any quality stores online like NewEgg or Mike's Computer Shop, or Swappa or anything.. You went to Ebay knowing it'll have prices cheap enough for you to BS on these forums), searched for the Cheapest...

    Sony struggling to keep PS5 cost down

    The next generation console should NOT cost the same as the previous generation. That's stupid af. If you can't afford the latest console, wait until you can. A SLIM version always comes out. To the guy saying his PC costs $300-400 and blows away a PS4 Pro or XBox One X, as a builder, I call...

    OpenGL

    Codeblocks is just an IDE. Your compiler will have to have it. If you're using mingw, you have to manually download the headers and place it in the Mingw include folder (at least on Windows). On Linux this isn't necessary. :) Not sure about compiling for 3DS tbh, but yeah, the headers are from...
