    Trump Plans to Challenge the Constitutional Definition of Birthright Citizenship

    in Politics Discussion, last active on on 15 November 2018

    I thought this topic was interesting.  So President Trump has been making the news as we head into the mid-terms by stating he has the executive power to remove Birthright Citizenship using his pen.  Birthright Citizenship is part of the 14th Amendment to the constitution.  For people who are not part of the US, in order to make a change to the Constitution, you have to have 2/3rds...

    Opinion: Next Gen Console Lockhart, Anaconda and PS5 will be built to do Hardware Ray Tracing

    in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 27 April 2019

    I decided to change the thread from it's original post since we did get confirmation that the PS5 will have ray tracing support.  There has been no confirmation from MS that their next gen console will also feature support for ray tracing but there is a rumor out there that it does has support but nothing concrete whether it will be hardware or just API software support.  Either way, I...

    Digital Foundry: How Does Xbox 360 Backwards Compatibility on Xbox One Actually Work?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 07 December 2017

    I thought this video from Digital Foundry was very informatiive for people who wonder about the benefits of MS BC for 360 and OG Xbox games.  It seems MS is really putting in a lot of work on their emulator and it also seems they have also baked in hardware within the X1 platform to support BC.  It looks like this was not just a reaction from MS to combat Sony but instead a planned...

    100 US Bucks or 150 US bucks for X1/PS4 from Gamespot

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 04 November 2015

    I saw that gamespot will be selling an X1 for 100 bucks or a PS4 for 150 when you trade in your old 360 or PS3.  So who is on the fence not going to take advantage of this deal....

    Can Microsoft provide PC compatibility within the X1

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 19 June 2015

    There have been a few discussions around the net concerning how MS has accomplished their BC for 360 games.  Not only is the X1 running 360 games but it is also running the 360 OS as well.  If we think about how the X1 works, there are 3 virtual machines.  One is the main VM that host the games and App VM.  It appears with the 360 BC that MS can either change, swap or add...

    Microsoft Delorean Platform - Streaming 360 and Xbox 1 games at 60FPS

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 17 September 2014

    I saw this rumor before but did not see any real discussion on the topic.  Here is the contents from a site on the subject. Reports indicate that Microsoft is in the process of testing a cloud gaming service that could allow all Xbox 360 and Xbox One games to played at 60 FPS via a web browser like Internet Explorer or Google Chrome. Microsoft’s cloud game platform Delorean is...

    Who's TV plan is the best, Sony or MS

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 10 January 2014

    After reading a few forums, there seems to be debates on which TV service is better.  I thought it would be good to see the opinions from the VGchartz community on which TV plan is the best or could be the best.  What are the pros and the cons...

    What does more power give you between X1 and PS4

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 15 August 2013

    After reading so many threads on how the great the power of the PS4 over the X1, I asked myself; What exactly will we see based on the power differece between the X1 and PS4.  What is it that people expect the PS4 will be able to do graphics wise that the X1 will not....

    Drivatar the evolution of MS Avatars

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 04 August 2013

    One of the things that separate MS 360 console from the PS3 when it first came out was the Gamerscore system.  This Gamerscore became an addiction for a lot of gamers and achievements was the engine that drove it.  Gamerscore is at the point that people who want to move to another system are hard press to give up that number they worked so hard to achieve.  Gamerscore even made...

    Spy Cameras in the living room

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 27 July 2013

    So there has been much talk about Kinect and that it must be plugged into the X1 for it to function.  This has caused a stir in the force because MS has been reported to give out information to the Government.  People are concerned that someone from the NSA, another agency, or some random hacker will be able to see you through Kinect for nefarious purposes. What I would like to talk...

    Will the PS4 represent 50% better performance than the X1

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 25 June 2013

    I was reading the article from Eurogamer on the PS4 games and I have to say that there probably will not be a big difference between the PS4 and the X1.  If you compare the games that were running on PS4 hardware and games running on X1, it would be hard to state any realy performance advantage from the PS4.  In fact a lot of their games suffered issues and dropped frames to 20FPS...

    Is the Xbox One looks growing on you

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 06 June 2013

    During the X1 reveal, the first thing I thought was that I was in the 80s with the look of the console.  Now that I have seen many pics, the look of the console is actually growing on me.   Lately within my home I like stuff that does not demand attention.  I do not want anything with a bunch of lights, crazy shapes, blinking you name it.  I want something that just blends...

    Could the Xbox one stream PC games like nvidia shield

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 04 June 2013

    I will state this is a stretch but interesting things might be available to the Xbox one.  Today MS released information about Windows 8.1 blue will have native Miracast (basically Airplay).  Miracast uses Wi-Fi Direct which the Xbox one has included.  Now that Windows 8.1 will also have native Miracast, its very possible for MS to stream games from your PC to the X1 like Nvidia's...

    Could the rumored 500 dollar Durango price tag be an indication of a stronger GPU in the Next Xbox

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 09 April 2013

    There is this rumor on NeoGaf that the latest dev units for developers came with a 7970 AMD card.  Most people speculated why MS would send dev units with a 3 + Tflop card when the next Xbox is rumored to have a 1.2 TFlop GPU.  With a 500 Dollar price tag rumored for the next Xbox, could it be that MS GPU might have a little more omph then current rumors have it speced if the nextbox...
