58.3% Plan To Buy A PS5 VS. 38.5% For XBX, According To IGN Poll

I picked sticking with PS4/XBO... I'll eventually get one (or both), but probably not for 1-2 years after release, and then it will depend on which either plays better (individual specs can be misleading) or has more interesting exclusives. Of course a launch title could change my mind, but I haven't been that exited about a new title in a long time... ...

How do you buy your games now?

in Gaming Discussion on 22 March 2020

After winning Xbox One from Taco Bell last year, I have been getting most of my games for free (both xbox one and surprisingly also PC) as part of the xbox one live subscription that came with it. I think I might continue with that after it runs out. I picked other. Although it's digital, it's not really the same because it's more like renting than buying. After subscription service,...

Looks like firefox will even preemptively create connections before it even has something to request of the server "just in case" you click on something.  That makes the vgchartz server defensive... That leaves me two...

I am not sure how liking works exactly, but is the browser doesn't use persistent connections it could increase the sensitivity. Having multiple browsers (or even the same browser with another window in incognito) can also create more connections. When you tried chrome, did you shut down firefox? If not, then it would only add to the simultaneous connections if firefox was causing an...

ELon Musk just create Halo Warthog , what a mad lad.

trunkswd said: As a fan of Tesla I've tried to like the design, but nope. I like the futuristic concept, but it needs more lines (polygons? :-P ). As I've seen mentioned by other people it also looks like you won't be able to put stuff in and out from the sides and have to go from the back. Now the ATV has me interested as it is might be the first Tesla vehicle I can...

Snoopy said: The vehicle looks better in motion, to be honest. Needs more edges and a different coat of paint. Black matt option has been confirmed as a color option.  Also seen the below, but don't know if two tone will be a factory option.  Paint on stainless steel can scratch easy, but it should also be easy to wrap with it's mostly flat surfaces. ...

JEMC said: I hadn't thought about the business market that how a durable vehicle could be a good investment. Then again, the load capacity would probably be as important if not more than that. The Cybertruck will have 3,500 pounds of payload capacity and 100 square feet of exterior storage (subject to change at this point, as it's only slightly better than a...

JEMC said: I like the originality of the design and that they're trying new models, but I fail to see who is going to buy this. I mean, if you fear that someone may want to attack you and decide that you really, really need an armored car, you're better off buying a regular car and bringin it to one of those companies that turn it into an armored vehicle (like that fanous video with the...
