    How will the low Metacritic Effect Far Cry 5 sales?

    in Gaming Discussion on 26 March 2018

    Considering it's the 5th instalment and people still seem to be enjoying it (I watch Jack Frags on Youtube as an example) I'd say the MC score is a solid/expected one at this time and the game will sell well regardless. ...

    Nvidia come out swinging for the PC at E3: “the PC is the most powerful gaming platform out there”

    in PC Discussion on 17 June 2013

    Quartz said:You all seem to be forgetting that PC's may have greater graphical power and all that, but the games have a overhead on them to work with different types of cards in different types of PC's. So while the PS4 may never be as powerful as the PC - IT CAN BE optimized better simply due to the fact that the hardware is fixed... Oh and if enough of them sell, it'll be easier...

    Wtf Microsoft

    in Microsoft Discussion on 12 June 2013

    If that map is true, then it's an EPIC shafting. This is MS targeting overload to try and avoid overspending in other areas whilst trying to keep some kind of system integrity. Might as well sell the console with a chastity belt while they are at it!...

    Wtf Microsoft

    in Microsoft Discussion on 12 June 2013

    What do you expect? You might get a discount on your broadband if you ask, but there is no way MS is going to stick that persons country into the mix unless they get loads of hits. On the customer service side it appears they were expecting questions about gaps in their service area and can't do jack about it. So they just give a 'Smile and Wave' answer....

    PS4 At top in Amazon sites nearly everywhere! EVEN UK @ #1

    in Sony Discussion on 12 June 2013

    I'm curious to see what the hardware survivability of the new Xbox is... we all can remember what happened when they released earlier than the PS3. Even though I never owned a 360 my brother went through 4 of them :) Meanwhile on topic, if the PS4 is launched at the right time with minimal fuss I personally think it'll smash Xbox sales in the area of 2:1. The idea of 5:1 is a bit of a pipe...

    Are we in for another ps2 type gen saleswise ?

    in Gaming Discussion on 12 June 2013

    Quartz said:It might appear that the PS4 could run away with it all, but the PS2 was released in a much different economic climate. There would have to be good bundles to get systems off the shelves and to get people to part with their hard earned (and in some cases less) cash. Personally I think it is too early to say.  Good games and ease of use with a favourable price will...

    I tried the new Xbox One Controller! (Update - it did have batteries!)

    Is there a mouse/keyboard option for all these FPS coming out? :). I'm teasing, sizing and weight i'd imagine are similar with a few design tweaks. Why change something that already works? ...
