Nah, it was a very stupid thing to say and I would have figured Trump to say something along those lines first.  Biden will burn with those comments and it may come back to haunt him. ...

    Rab said: Raven said: The report that the Hill covered in regards to Biden's education was covered by a news station decades ago, it's not a revelatory development. There's also merit to someone not wanting to dredge up archives that would just provide material for your opposition to nitpick and manipulate during an election year. He has stated that if there were such a...

    Xbox Series X's cross-gen approach is robbing players of the next-gen thrill

    in Microsoft Discussion 3 days ago

    goopy20 said: Machiavellian said: The reason it doesn't make sense to you is that you probably never developed code on that type of level before.  All engine developers are not the same and how they tackle a problem also may be totally different.  Sony SSD is not needed for UE5, especially for Lumen and Nanite.   As far as Sony SSD, what does that have to do...

    DonFerrari said: Machiavellian said: You have no ideal how long Epic has been working on Lumen or Nanite.  These are just tech advances that they could have been working on for years but could not realize their tech until consoles caught up with PC like CPU, GPU and memory.  I am telling you there is absolutely no guarantee that Sony devs are doing anything close to...

    DonFerrari said: Machiavellian said: Not sure why you would believe that.  Lumen and Nanite are features of UE5 and I doubt that Epic was handing over that tech to Sony just because they used their hardware to demonstrate the engine.  I am sure Sony developers will have tech that take advantage of the PS5 but who knows if they were working on the same concepts. ...

    DonFerrari said: Conina said: And for the 100th time: MS cross-gen strategy is only for a limited time window. That strategy will probably already over and forgotten when the first AAA games "built by ground up" with Nanite and Lumen in mind will be released. UE5 ain't available for developers yet, and developing AAA games takes years. And ain't it a bit hasty to assume that...

    Rab said: Machiavellian said: No, I do not know these guys and I saw no evidence in that opinion piece. What I saw is what ever opinion piece does is be one sided.  Case in point they say collusion from Biden because one article got 74 witnesses.  They never back this claim up only suggesting that its hard to do so Biden camp had to be involved.  In my mind it is...

    Rab said: Machiavellian said: Interesting, why because the very same people who are claiming this is coming from Biden camp actually did not have any evidence of the sort.  So first they make that claim then never back it up while they then try to show bias from the other news site all the while showing their own.  why don't you read the 2 articles instead of posting the...

    Unreal Engine 5 Announced + PS5 Demo

    in Sony Discussion 6 days ago

    CGI-Quality said: "The are running a VIDEO PLAYER on that laptop, playing a video of Unreal Engine 5 running on a PlayStation 5. 😀"Then that settles it. Discussion is over and no one needs to bring attention to it again. I am a very big stickler for context so I clicked on the first link.  Tim states they were showing the demo from a video player, what he did not dispute...

    Unreal Engine 5 Announced + PS5 Demo

    in Sony Discussion on 17 May 2020

    setsunatenshi said: Machiavellian said: Actually I am not missing the point at all.  The presenter interpretations stated it can run just fine without the PS5 GOD tier SSD.  As I asked earlier, are we questioning the statement made by the presenter who works for Epic or just the playback of the demo. As to your second paragraph, that tweet from Tim only seem to point to...

    Unreal Engine 5 Announced + PS5 Demo

    in Sony Discussion on 17 May 2020

    setsunatenshi said: Machiavellian said: The reason I asking the question I am is that first this is a Epic employee demonstrating the UE5 demo.  Just because he is in China doesn't automatically make him some offhand engineer talking above his pay grade.  If anything, if they are demoing the UE5 engine, then they would have access to run it on any machine they...

    in Sony Discussion on 17 May 2020

    DonFerrari said: Machiavellian said: Why would you believe that Epic and Sony had a legal deal.  Meaning that something on the level of a paid deal.  Just because Epic US showed the demo running on the PS5 doesn't mean other regions have the same goal.  The real goal of UE5 demo period is to sell UE5 to developers.  In China, demoing on the PS5 probably isn't a...
