    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Discussion Thread

    in General Discussion 4 days ago

    Countries don't decide shit for where products are made. Does Japan tell Nintendo or Sony (or US gov't to Microsoft) they can't make their game systems in China? No, they don't, and they won't be able to. All that will happen after this is countries will ensure in an emergency situation they have contingency plans to rapidly speed up manufacture of a few select items ... hospital gowns/masks,...

    Will next gen consoles be able to RT properly

    in Gaming Discussion on 22 March 2020

    Short answer -- No. RT is massively processor intensive, the PS5 at only like 10 TFLOPS is not going to be able to run complex ray tracing at high resolutions + frame rate. The SX can only run Minecraft at like 1080p with ray tracing turned on.  Ray tracing is going to be something I think only the higher end 30 series Nvidia GPUs can do OK, probably really it will take until the 40...

    Staring into the abyss of a world where Nintendo has no games scheduled for release. Edit: The Time of Darkness Has Arrived

    in Nintendo Discussion on 22 March 2020

    "Nintendo gonna Nintendo" After being a fan for like 3 decades, I really don't care about this stuff with Nintendo anymore or at least not in the way I used to. I like their games, so I'm going to buy whatever system they release that plays those games. I don't care if it's a Wii U or Switch or GameCube or whatever. I'm even getting to the point where I don't really care if some years they're...

    in Gaming Discussion on 20 March 2020

    lol lots of brand rationalization going on in here, if this was the opposite where Sony had the higher specced system people would be yelling from the rooftops about it. There's probably nothing that stops the XBSX from going to higher clock speeds if MS wants either making that gap in power even larger. ...

    Could Next-Gen Switch Use Nvidia DLSS AI Upscaling?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 10 February 2020

    It seems like AMD's RIS (image sharpening) is better than DLSS and has virtually no performance hit, maybe Nvidia will come up with their own answer to that. But in theory absolutely. If you can render an image at only 60-70% of its pixels but achieve basically the same image quality ... such a tech is perfect for a Switch 2. ...

    Birds of Prey - 82% RT, and good audience reception

    in Movies Discussion on 09 February 2020

    Not sure where "Ocean's 8 flopped" comes from. $300 million box office versus a $70 million budget is a very healthy box office multiplier (over 4x its budget). If you could get a 4x multiplier on just about any script you came up with, every studio in Hollywood would greenlight your script and gladly. ...

    Should Nintendo make all future consoles hybrids?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 04 February 2020

    Neither Sony or Nintendo will be making two distinct platforms ever again I don't think (as in console + separate handheld). It's too cost and resource intensive to support two platforms anymore. Handhelds used to have far more primitive technology but today handhelds can run even modern games like The Witcher 3 and soon will have chips that can easily run PS4/XB1 tier content, the iPad Pro...

    EA: "There isn't much room for other titles than 1st party on Switch"

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 February 2020

    If Nintendo had used the Mariko chip that is in current Switch units they could have had a 393 GFLOP undocked (@ 3-4 hours) and 600 GFLOP docked performance, which probably would have put a lot more XB1/PS4 games in play for the Switch. They probably could have doubled the memory bandwidth to 50GB/sec too which makes a large difference. That's a performance envelope where porting those types of...

    When will the switch outsell the ps4?

    in Sales Discussion on 31 January 2020

    PS4 is at 106 million now, it's not going to just magically stop at 110 million. Really Sony could probably hit 140 mill if they really want to, they haven't even cut to $199.99 let alone $149.99 ... if they wanted that number they could get it. It's a question of what they want to do. Selling 106 million mostly at $299-$399 is crazy. Even the PS2 needed significant price cuts and DS was $130 or...

    in Nintendo Discussion on 31 January 2020

    Sony and MS dominate the 3rd party market too much, even a lot of Switch owners own a PS4 but would rather play say NBA2K on PS4.It's just too ingrained in people. 50 million userbase doesn't mean a lot if it requires more effort/resources to port and your sales return is going to be lower. Nintendo unforuntately ceded the NES/SNES' legacy of being the place for all the top games (1st, 2nd, and...
