Entrance is so funky. Why do you have to "Get noticed" and increase visibility. Yeesh. Like I can't just be a regular enough reader.

Ryse should have been multiplat including PC. And maybe more work should have gone into making it a deeper game. It had huge potential ESPECIALLY with all the shows that have been done (spartacus, game of thrones and others). they wasted the chance to do something huge.

the 4.99 one is the only one that looks bad. They've got prices to sort out but I dont see this as outrageous. Kinda what you'd expect from a fancy service. This isn't the same as renting a physical copy of a game that gamefly doesn't need to put up servers or anything else for.

they still pay more. They clearly cannot afford what they consume but being able to consume more than they can afford probably maintains their interest in what they can pay for. Considering that their "taking" isn't actually taking and that their "taking" fuels demand in other areas (physical media, broadband internet, Harddrives, PCs), there is a clear benefit from a sensible standpoint.

A bitcoin miner is as annoying as any virus if it takes part of your PCs power for itself. Even if its not stealing info.

As far as pirating and getting malicious software... that goes for all downloading on the internet, so try again. The idea that it "robs" these companies is ill thought out.. You are basically telling a pirate that they WOULD buy it if they couldn't pirate it. Presumptuous.

PC piracy seems to be happening later than console piracy now. The ps3 and xbox360 versions of these are out to DL and likely working fine.

@Joel H

I realize its not one to one but the difference is not just 50% more GPU. there is more bandwidth among other things. My guess is that the ps4 will be more able to maintain higher framerates and will end up with more 60fps games as a result. The dips will be less severe than those on the xbox in addition to the lower framerate on the xbox. Think one article quoted that the ps4 did not drop very much from 60fps while the xb1 version only reaches 45 in less active scenes.

The PS4 might have a faster CPU. the clock speed has not been announced and there have been reports that benchmarks show the PS4 CPU performs better.

"our brains evolved to notice sudden changes in motion because it's one of the best ways to avoid being something else's lunch. "

evolution garbage on a flipping tech website. wow.

 

The ps4 has a GPU that is 50% more powerful, doesn't it? I mean, even if they get the memory configuration of the xbox one down, I think the gap is large enough for these differences to remain. The developers might prefer optimizing for 30 fps on the xb1 because it doesn't quite reach 60 fps on the regular. All they might end up with is a game that does 45fps and may dip low enough for the change to be noticeable, so they put it at 30. On the ps4 they might get a situation where it gets 60fps regularly and the dips don't pass 50 fps. 

We should not forget that the ps4's processor is also supposedly faster than the xbox one's processor. 

What I am curious about is why they are not used to the ram configuration on the xb1. Its similar to that on the xbox 360, isn't it? One thing that might come out of this is a kinectless xb1. Lower price as well.
