I dont think we get it.
Otherwise why would he keep telling us?
Btw, Kirito should be a fan of Oculus Rift,
You know, Sword Art Online, VRMMO...
This guy is going full Hitler on consoles.
I like both console and PC games. Does that make me a blasphemer?
This is actually one member that I find the dumbest.
He doesn't say anything back. And also apparently if you play retro games as a main source of games, it means according to him, you're crazy for playing outdated games.
That, and he fails to understand that since the dawn of the industry, consoles were always the testing grounds for new technology. Who had a desktop computer with a dual-CPU and dual-GPU setup like the Sega Saturn did back in the day? Who had a 64-bit computer during the Nintendo 64's life span? Even today, who has a CELL-equiped computer (because CELL is actually a fantastic science processor that gets a whole lot of work done)?
It's a well-known fact that most video game consoles during the first couple of years from their release surpass similarly-priced PC rigs in terms of performance - it was a tried-and-true method back then and it's tried-and-true now because optimization for the hardware gives such unified systems the edge that only high-performance, costly rigs can even hope to match.
...but of course we have to forget about all that since now, after what? 7 years mid-range, affordable PC's caught up to what the XBox 360 and the PS3 do with their meager specs. I may not have a rocket of a PC - it's an i3 with 4GB RAM and a GeForce 520MX so it's fine for moderate gaming but my PS3 just does it better, not to mention that PSN connects me with all my gaming buddies and services.
Sure, so does Steam, but it's just one of may services. PC is fragmented and it's this fragmentation that often gives consoles the edge, at least initially and it's not going to change anytime soon because, news flash, video game consoles are made specifically for gaming and they're tweaked for that particular purpose while PC's are made for general computing, including gaming.
FUCK YOU'LL.... PC MASTER RACE!!1!!11!i1!
no seriously...................... im just kidding
Warning: Spoilers inside!
OR AM I......PC MASTER RACE!! STEAM 4 EVA!!
CAN YOUR CONSOLE PLAY HD PORN 2... no. MY PC MASTER RACE CAN!
DIRTY CONSOLE PEASANTS...
dont forget about the spoiler.
My PC is only a dual core 4GB with a 450GTS. It's okay for casual gaming. I mean, Batman Arkham City has PhysX and I really don't see all the hubbub. I can see extra particles, big whoop.
In order to upgrade it, I would have to spend a couple hundred on a graphics card, hundred or so for a new processor, and then more for RAM. Or I could just spend 300 dollars on a console which really gives me the same experience as I would find on a PC.
The Oculus Rift isn't a console. It's a peripheral that according to interviews with Oculus VR, targets PC gaming.
Also, before Kirito discovered the Nerve Gear, he was a PC gamer evident by the triple-monitor gaming rig in his room as well as his former obsession with MMOs, an almost PC-exclusive genre.
You can build a PC for $470 to match the PS4/Xbox One:
AMD FX 6300 - $105
AMD Radeon HD 7850 - $140
GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2P motherboard - $50
500 GB WD Blue - $50
2 x 4 GB DDR3 1333 RAM (any generic brand) - $50
Thermaltake PurePower 430-Watt Power Supply - $35
Any cheap generic case - $40
And do you really think that the N64 had a 64-bit CPU? Only it's GPU was 64-bit, and 64-bit PC GPUs did exist at the time. The N64's CPU was only 32-bit.
FUCK YOU DIRTY CONSOLE PEASANTS.
Equivalent specs do not provide an equivalent performance. You and I both know that such a rig would run like ass when it comes to next generation games.
The N64's CPU is a variety of VR4300 by NEC and is a 64-bit CPU which can pass a 64-bit instruction or two 32-bit instructions instead. In other words, you're wrong.
this calls for a
Exactly, why else would it be called the N64?
i thought it was called because it had 64 games.
DIRTY NINTENDO PEASANTS.
It won't be much off as the PS4/Xbox One are both AMD x86/AMD Radeon based, meaning that there don't really exist any type of programming tricks that developers can use to squeeze any extra power out of them.
Variant is the key word here. It's a 32-bit variant of the VR4300. In other words, learn to read the whole article.
Your place beside The Glorious Cake Destroyer: Gaben has been revoked, console scum.
Ah, of course! That makes a lot more sense!
And at anyone who says it's 32-bit
Under features, the third bullet point clearly says "64-bit architecture"
Oh, that's just cute. So it's the architecture's fault now, is it? Let's completely forget that these are not stock AMD Jaguars, that they have additional embedded functionality, that the OS is specifically made to be lightweigh...
The VR4300 is a variant of the MIPS R4300i, the differences between them are cosmetic, the only considerable one is the width of the bus. The architecture is 64-bit and is entirely capable of 64-bit precision operations, but you don't have to believe me, just believe Wikipedia.
Like I said, you're wrong, and now you're acting like you're five and don't really know what you're talking about. You can stop now though.
Exactly, looking at the specs on NEC's page, http://www.nec.co.jp/press/en/9711/1401-01.html
the CPU has a 64-bit architecture
