Taco Bell XBOX ONE X Eclipse Bundle

in Microsoft Discussion 1 day ago

I won! Picked up 3 box deals yesterday (one for daughter and one for wife), but can only submit one code per day (per phone number), so only able to put in 2 of the 3 codes so far... Looks like I have an excuse to go shopping for a 4K TV now. ...

Which Site Theme Do You Use?

I definitely like the blue the best.  It's not exactly the same as the past, but it's a lot closer than the other options, and I did like the style from 10 years ago or whenever that was......

Why are people excited for Microsoft's E3 2019?

in Gaming Discussion on 28 January 2019

Sony said no new hardware 2019... AFAIK, Microsoft made no such announcement, and given Microsoft's direction of planned compatibility between hardware generation, it could mean faster console releases... maybe a xbox one x ultra with SSD as standard that is capable of doing 60 FPS on a higher % of games. Anyways, nothing to be super excited about, other than it will be far easier for them...

Original XBOX performance

in Microsoft Discussion on 15 September 2018

The GC had decent FP from both CPU and GPU, most other only had decent from one. It could do closer to 11 GFLOPS. It also had the most impressive matrix transformations, able to do 3 billion/sec. (PS2 and XBOX at 2 billion). Overall, I would say the graphics on the GC were more impressive and the original, except for one thing... the biggest limitation with the gamecube in terms of...

Will the Switch outsell the Wii?

in Nintendo Discussion on 28 March 2018

It really depends how long Nintendo sells it, and if you count variants (larger or higher-res screen, faster processor but compatible, etc). If newer models are included in the count, then Nintendo can stretch the sales for a long, long time and exceed Wii sales easily. If you only count price cuts and minor changes such as bundles and color scheme, then probably not. That said, the switch...

CrazyGamer2017 said: I probably abuse sugar though not as much as I did when I was younger. But since I never go see doctors (I hate doctors) I am good to go. If no doctor tells me that I have a condition then It's like I don't have a condition. So all those exams one is supposed to do in life are not for me. I'm not about to let some quack stick a finger up my ass to check my prostate, no...

Diabetics Thread

in General Discussion on 24 March 2018

I was diagnosed with type 1 about 15 years ago (my sugar was over 1300 and in the hospital for almost a week). Was able to get off of insulin after several months and mostly stay off of it for a number of years keeping it under control with exercise and diet (but sometimes having to go back on insulin for a couple of months). One thing I noticed over the years is I have more problems in the...

PS3 class action lawsuit

in Sony Discussion on 21 March 2018

If a company learns not to go back on it's word, the lawsuit is a good thing. I was thinking about getting a PS3 because it could run linux and somewhat supported instead of having to hack the system. That said, I didn't want to spend that much for a PS3 at the time and waited until I could get a good price for a used one on ebay. When Sony decided to do this, I am sure they weighed the...
