    Is the United States really a developed country?

    in Politics Discussion on 18 July 2018

    The best rated universities are mostly located at the US, that also tops academic ranks in research quantity. They hold most Nobel prize wins. They are the top 1 technological innovator in the world. Probably 70% of the tech you used to post your text was based in US research. Don't even get me started on the Internet itself. It's hard to qualify the US as "underdeveloped" with these metrics....

    Uncharted 4 Sells Through 10 million Copies / Long Live Single Player Games!

    in Sony Discussion on 18 April 2018

    Jranation said: They didn't notice that 2 of the highest rated games this gen are single player (BOTW and Odyssey). And in terms of sales, those 2 are not lacking as well.  While it's unfortunate, game sales don't mean a lot. MP games allow companies to cash in with microtransactions and DLC more frequently. This creates a constant source of revenue. Fifa...

    PS5's rumored specs are... ridiculous

    in Sony Discussion on 06 April 2018

    mjk45 said: To my mind,one more factor in consideration on the timing of the next gen may well be the simple matter of when Sony feel they  have reached a production price point where the PS4 Pro is able to replace the PS4 while maintaining a similar price and profit margin . That's a good point. PS360 suffered a bit in the end with next gen ports that were not...

    PS5's rumored specs are... ridiculous

    in Sony Discussion on 05 April 2018

    I think it's pretty clear that both the PS4 Pro and the X1X pushed the next gen further down the road. A 500 bucks PS5 wouldn't be able to significantly outperform a X1X. Hell, it wouldn't even be that much of a jump from a Pro when you factor in that most gens are close to a 10X jump. Moreover, the PS4 was still up YoY last year. It's even debatable if it won't manage to do it again this...

    What Will Happen To PS+ Games once the PS3/VITA/PS4 Online Servers Are Shut Down?

    What Will Happen To PS+ Games once the PS3/VITA/PS4 Online Servers Are Shut Down?

    in Sony Discussion on 03 April 2018

    I think it's pretty clear you're going to lose all games. PS+ is a rental service. Steam is a rental service. Want to keep a game? Buy it on disc, problem solved. The reasoning is that Sony doesn't own these games. There are hundreds of publishers and 3rd party studios involved, so it's likely that there's no legal way for Sony to basically hand out free digital copies. Anyway, it's likely that...

    Black Panther Shatters Box Office Projections

    in Movies Discussion on 21 February 2018

    I'm still surprised that people seem to focus on the US box office numbers only. I get it that it is the largest market, but usually the international box office surpass it easily. I can't understand this separation. If a movie makes 200M in the US + 150M international, is it better than a film doing 100M (US) + 700M (international)? Of course not, money is money, it doesn't matter from which...

    New PlayStation VR Deals starting at $199.99 (GT Sport + camera) (US only)

This GTS deal is a steal.  Tbh I don’t get your first sentence.

    New PlayStation VR Deals starting at $199.99 (GT Sport + camera) (US only)

    in Sony Discussion on 21 February 2018

    Oculus and HTC should create more affordable models. Right now, none of the VR headsets can provide an experience that really convinces you that it's real and not just a low-res screen with limited FOV on your face. They are good enough to be fun, but they still are limited first gen VR devices. Even with all these limitations, the experience still is pretty cool. But people won sink 500...

    PS4 vs Switch: Launch aligned, who hits 100 million first?

    in Sales Discussion on 20 February 2018

    I thinks is a bit early to call since we don't really have a lot of Switch data. What we do know is that it is already ahead when launch-aligned. However, we can't really know if it isn't going to nosedive like the Wii. Even breaking the 100M barrier can be a bit of a problem for the NS since it probably can't reach the casuals like Wii/DS, so it could end up topping at 90 something (3DS +...

Even if it fails to set a franchise record, it will be massively offset by the fact that the game now sells on the west too. It will be the most successful MH game ever by a fair margin....

    Masters Degree

    in General Discussion on 05 February 2018

    I did one, it's in general more difficult than the Bachelors (IT too). If you struggled during the Bachelors, then it can be a bit tough. If you considered your Bachelor easy or at least manageable, then it shouldn't be a problem at all. I think it trains you well into thinking as a researcher, as a scientist. That's probably the bets thing you get from a Master's or even a PhD. You learn how...
