    Trump's new tariff proposals include a 25% tax on video game consoles

    in Gaming Discussion on 26 May 2019

    Thing is it's absolutely absurd to think the US has the power to "curb stomp" China's economy. if they wanted to they should have started this 20 years ago instead of helping it become what it is and going to be. The USA seems to be it's biggest enemy a lot of the time. ...

    Americans should have a stake in keeping silicon valley well off since it's their most productive engine. Do you want to see them have another rust belt again?  I would rather have the best tech in my hands, why settle for 2nd best? Why prop something up? That's a road to stagnation! Why innovate and push forward when we will get a bail out or falsely propped up.  Qualcomm's...

    Why not have another country push Silicon Valley? If it can't innovate to keep up why should it be propped up? competition is not a bad thing. Huawie will push Qualcomm to compete they have already accomplished a lot in the 4 years the Kirin 900 chip-set has been produced. Already the Kirin 980 beats the Snapdragon 845. My P30 Pro is a fantastic phone and I will gladly get another one on 2 years...

    It is true that China steals tech, but one can't just sit back and assume they are the only country to do so... I think China is many cases is unjustly made the villain. To many people assume western business are always so innocent and the victim... we also have a strong history of stealing and spying or unjustly influencing other companies. It's just funny we accuse others of what we ourselves...

Sure there are some reliable products but go back 3 or 4 decades they built shit to last. Now we are in a throw away economy. Something breaks go buy another because prob cost just as much fixing than to replace. I'll take Japan they usually make good...

    cycycychris said: Better add at least $100 onto the price of all consoles now. Right in time for the next gen too. I actually wouldn't be surprised if this makes the console makers looking into assembling the consoles in the US. Don't know if that would knock enough off the price to make it work the effort though. But if this tariff is something that they think will stay in place for a...

    Will the BF5 Failure Slow The Tide of SJW Agendas in Gaming?

    in Gaming Discussion on 25 August 2018

    I don't see how EA is really re-writing history with the inclusion of female characters. Women did have combat roles albeit not common, Russia was the only allied power I believe that used women in combat roles then there was the resistance. I see this character as more of an homage to that then anything. Why do some men get all uppity over this? BF is hardly realistic to begin with. I am a...

    Should Nextbox go for the headstart, or wait for PS5 to make the first move?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 07 July 2018

    I don't see how launching after the PS5 (14TF) and the MS waiting to see what Sony does and launching at 20 TF makes even a little bit of sense. It's almost like some people have very simplistic views of console development. MS did not wait for Sony to show it's hand with the Pro then a year latter came out with the XB1X... It takes years to develop the hardware. If they wait a year it's not...

    Planning on buying an Xbox One.

    in Microsoft Discussion on 29 June 2018

    It's tuff, if you are not interested in Forza, Halo and Gears it's sparse after that for AAA exclusive content. There are some smaller games like: Cuphead (simply a brilliant game) Ori and the Blind Forest Quantum Break I played Sea of Thieves (via gamepass) and was really disappointed. Pretty happy I never spent full retail on it! Sunset Overdrive was simply to much. I know it has...

    PSNow getting download feature? (Rumour)

    in Sony Discussion on 19 June 2018

    I think it very well could be implemented for the PS5, I would also be interested in seeing how they cracked the emulation. It was only a matter of time and can also seeing Sony invest more on the server side to beef up streaming....

    Is that globally in the US or the world? :-p   II bought it, played 20 min so far and have had no time to go back to it! Been playing COD WWII with my brother,  I don't get to see him much so when I do get a chance it's usually COD... kinda like old times playing games and talking with my bro :-p This weekend I hope to get back into it! I wonder if those sales include digital? I...

    Switch vs Ps4 - Who will win 2017 WW

    in Sales Discussion on 29 December 2017

    I thought they had a Super Mario Odyssey bundle? but I expect Switch sales to even out as demand for the most part has done the same. I was in Edmonton a week before Christmas this year and I seen Switches on shelves and PS4's flying off the shelves. Over herd 3 kids and 2 where talking about Fortnite and the other said he wanted a switch, the other 2 basically said pff we are into fortnite. So...

    When will the Switch be tracked on the main page?

    in Gaming Discussion on 18 July 2017

    Just be nice to see it tracked I guess, I am just kinda shocked as to why it's taking so long... I mean knew it was not going to be right away since sometimes (a lot lately) the chartz are a month or more behind... but there really is no excuse now....

    How the heck did Sony manage to retake the console market again?

    in Gaming Discussion on 01 April 2017

    Imaginedvl said:  No, you just gave your own believes/assumptions about why Microsoft should not have priced the Xbox One (which is not the question of this thread) and then just went on how they were forcing their stuff on consumer, how the package had no values, how Kinect was useless and overpriced, etc... Which again was not really the point. Justified (my oppinion) or not...

    How the heck did Sony manage to retake the console market again?

    in Gaming Discussion on 30 March 2017

    I don't know if Sony's turnaround happened soley because of the PS4, I think it started to turn around 2 years prior.  There was a pretty big sales gap between the 360 and PS3 and that's when Sony started to close the gap and eventrually take the lead in overall sales.   Sony took this time to build up it's first party IP since they were bleeding 3rd party exclusives this really set...

    When did you EVER buy a 4K Blu-ray Film?

    in Sony Discussion on 08 September 2016

    Personally I don't care. If it means making the console cheaper then it's a win. I buy a console to play games and as a easier Netflix streaming device (most tv apps are slow). I practice I follow and have since the PS2 was halfway through it's life, I just buy an actual DVD/Blu-Ray player. I watch a lot of movies and I would rather take that work load off the console. If I ended up buying a...

    Digital Foundry: Hands-on With PS4's PS2 Emulation (Confirmed)

    in Sony Discussion on 19 November 2015

    Well I have seen a few of the "I am not buying it twice since I already bought it on PSone or PS2/3 so it should be free" comments and while it would be nice you are not entitled to play your old games on a new system. The original game was purchased to play on that platform and that platform only... it has done it's job and you can continue to play it on that platform. I just don't get the...

    Which generation of console gaming was the biggest leap forward?

    in Gaming Discussion on 10 November 2015

    It's tough, I would have to break it into two, Software and Hardware. Software: Gen 3, the software became more complex and diverse... I cut my gaming teeth on a C64 and while I was not a gamer at that point, I wanted my games to be more. I am not a graphics whore and I don't know how else to explain it, but the NES was able to make the games look and feel right. Gen 3 made me fall in love...
