A few years ago, I ran a 5K with friends for kidney disease research and one of my friends had spotted a guy who was running at about the same pace as him and made it his goal to cross the finish line before him... which he did.
Later during the award ceremony, they asked this guy to speak because it turned out he had been on dialysis for the last year or so. My friend told us "Damn, I feel like such an asshole, right now!"
Your post reminded me of that.
Our discussion reminded me that we're both on the verge of our 10 year anniversary on VGC. Time flies!
No way man haha, I'm not even into videogames any more, last xbox game I bought was like Trackmania is 2015? Hope you're well anyway dude!
Now that the new Nintendo system has been unveiled, I wonder if...or when...john lucas will grace us with his presence and explain why itīll sell a bazillion units.
4K Netflix is actually 15mbps + 3mbps HDR extension. It's comparable to 1080p blu-ray as h.265 is about twice as efficient as h.264, however that 15mbps includes sound on Netflix, on Blu-ray lossless sound can already take up 5.5 mbps. Blu-ray sustains up to 54 mbps all combined.
It's a big step up from 1080p netflix at h.264 5mbps including sound. Compating 4K blu-ray to Netflix (even their ultra quality at 10mbps) will blow everyone away. However a proper upscaled blu-ray is not that far off from a studio upscaled 4K UHD disc (made from a 2k master which most still are)

Bigger internal storage for sure, the SSD is way too small in the digital age. Don't care that much about 4k output, I'll get that on PC when some decent cards able to run it properly come out. Scratching isn't much of an issue for me since I more or less only play in docked mode, but I can see how it's an issue for those who regularly dock and undock it....
Well, most consoles are designed to last from the manufacturers perspective, the real question is always whether or not it will once it hits the actual market and gains traction. It remains to be seen, it's still young, it had a great 2018, but we also need to remember when comparing to the 7th and 8th gen that Nintendo doesn't really have a dedicated handheld selling much at the moment. Without...
SvennoJ said: Mummelmann said: I'm much more annoyed by the massive compression of streamed 4K content, my blu-ray 4K movies are just a completely different level in the visual department. Netflix and Amazon content looks washed out and unsaturated in comparison, it's especially annoying that you can't tinker with settings more to fit your own connection speed. Streaming 4K looks to...
