    Considering the extremes this kid went to over refusing anonymous friends requests shouldn't the court order he gets some psychiatric treatment to? He clearly has deep emotional or psychological problems that need treatment. Whether you are a virginal "hacker" or not that is worrying behavior and he is clearly a candidate for a future crazy that will end up physically hurting people. Reply +3
  • Is this the new Logitech wheel for PlayStation 4?

  • bad09 22/05/2015

    @grassyknoll


    I always assume any accessory is for that generation only, it's just the way it is.
    Once upon a time but consoles did move on from proprietary connections and we are in an age of standard USB connections so there is no reason why that should still be the case other than to ensure consumers are limited in choice with stupid microchip nonsense stopping perfectly fine USB connected peripherals from working.

    It's not a deal or anything, they released this wheel because of the crap peripheral support on PS, people were complaining to logitech about no support on PS4 so they said they would look into it and have now released this.

    It could be an exclusive model but they'll still release wheels on PC, as dean0null says, logitech were actually moving out of console peripherals so it's quite surprising they released another wheel. I guess with consumers heading to them constantly for the wheel support issue they probably thought they could make some cash out of another release for PS4.

  • CD Projekt tackles The Witcher 3 downgrade issue head on

  • bad09 21/05/2015

    @Machiavellian

    When people did notice they were told YT compression it's only as more footage came out in the last couple of weeks that people really understood what went on. Christ I know love is blind but do some of you really not understand what went on here? :)

    Even now they ignore what they've been saying to people and just claim "oh no, we didn't do or say anything we just made a game....in fact it wasn't even in game footage it was a trailer". Even now they wriggle and squirm like a wriggly squirmy thing.

    @jonathan_phang

    NOW it is a trailer, back then it was "ingame" footage, at some point last year it was still looking that good and YT compression made it look worse, even the promotional materiel used NOW in selling and promotion of the game isn't from the game. :)

    They pulled a Watch Dogs, they pulled a Killzone, they pulled a Colonial Marines and those lot got dragged across the coals as should CDPR regardless of their nice guy image beforehand. I love CDPR to but this total blind ignorance of what they pulled with Witcher 3 is actually quite depressing, especially watching consumers attack other consumers for highlighting it, truly bizarre animal the gaming consumer.

    "All this self entitled moaning and downgrade talk is just going to stop any developers putting any running footage into trailers.
    Dear god that's the ENTIRE point. They didn't in the first place it was "vertical slice" and now everyone has seen the actual game :)

    Stopping the smoke and mirrors of using completely made up "in game" footage to hype your game is a GOOD thing for consumers. We WANT them to stop and just show the game when they are sure that is the game they will sell.

    @Paulanator

    Of course it means that, that's why console only devs are branching out to PC. Everyone needs growth. Point George is making is it was implied they needed it but in terms of 1&2 PC did them alright and put them in the position to go multiplatform.

    MS has really stepped up with the marketing for 3 (Hmmmm parity and MS involved again....) I imagine the 3rd will do better on console than 2.

    Taking E3 seriously is for idiots, sensible people just have a giggle at it and don't listen to the PR drones spouting the same old scripts of hype and buzzwords bundled with fake footage.

    When W3 was unveiled at E3 we all should have known better then to be honest but CDPR have such a good rep nobody thought it was a load of balls like the rest usually is.

    That's just PR bull it's not "the nature of development" that is the issue it's the triple A nature of hype and marketing that is. 2 years of marketing hype on carefully manufactured "vertical slices" of games not even made yet.

    On the other hand devs and publishers are under quite a bit of scrutiny now. Climate of the times, people are wary of getting mugged off, or being misled. It really wouldn't have taken much to say, at an earlier stage,

    "yeah, we have fallen a bit short of our initial target. The games still looks great as you can see but going forward, all our ambition proved too much for pc and console alike and we've had to rein some graphical features in for now"

    rather than

    "Ah that's just youtube compression. Nah mate, that's an old build, don't know why it looks like that..."
    If I could + this by Drunk-Si a thousand times I would. This is the issue, this was the "downgrade issue". Not "I want pretty graphics", not "consoles ruined our game". Most people have issue with this....and frankly this interview or the other one I saw has not addressed this. They didn't say nothing they outright lied to people about the graphical quality of their game instead of honesty about what people would end up playing.

    Game is great, game still looks great to....but now CDPR are lying to people to like a good little triple A dev and that is why people are angry.

    People switching to pc are not going to bother with a budget pc there is no point. That 300 pound pc is more about getting comparable performance on the cheap not a great option to switch to from console, most going from console to PC will want better performance not roughly the same.

    Thank god that got scrapped :) Makes you wonder though if the new Doom will be another plot fest like 3 instead of the violently messy explosion of pure gameplay fun 1&2 were. Just give me a chainsaw, shotgun and BFG and point where they are, I don't need no plot in a Doom. Reply +2

    @I_Am_CatButler

    It's DRM in that it connects to the net for updates, achievements, online etc. From what I gather it won't screw you over like Steams crap offline mode and they will never stop you playing internet or not so yeah it's a hell of a lot better for the consumer than Valve.

    Still more comfortable with a completely DRM free copy there though, as it stands GOG hit the nail on the head if you ask me.

    @Suarez07

    As long as they continue to allow DRM free copies to be downloaded as well as Galaxy I think they have it right, automatic update are handy, game launchers are handy and let's be honest they can't even compete with steam until they have at least some control to appease the rest of the shite that demands that DRM crap to control the people that buy their games.

    If they drop the DRM free option/back up though.....

    as I said you'll get abuse if you say you are pirating CDPR, they have a lot of deserved good will over their DRM stance. Even with them bullshitting people over the quality of the graphics in their latest game I'd still punch someone who said they pirated their games. You don't pirate people who sell you DRM free, it's just not on fella even if it is an empty threat.

    "You can just imagine the outrage of people here if they were told that their console version was massively pared back because the other platform they were targeting couldn't manage?"

    Didn't the Sony crowd blow a gasket over the parity for Unity? I seem to remember some upset at ubi for not pushing PS4 so not to upset MS.

    Come on, it's to sucker people into pre-ordering or getting the hype train moving. you know it, I know it :)

    I agree advertising by nature is deceptive, I've worked in it and studied it but nothing is really as bad a the games industry IMO and usually if they are they are pulled up in it.

    Now you can argue (in this case for example) CDPR misjudged console specs or needed to optimize whatever but they STILL denied it, they STILL pretended to consumers it looked that good. For this case in particular that is the real crime and the reason most people are angry.

    Bullshit, gamers want to see the game and they want to see what they will buy, if you can't show that they will wait.

    You really think CDPR would have this fallout if they showed an honest and real look at Witcher 3 further down the line? You think people would forget the game because they didn't see some fake footage first?

    Bollocks, utter apologist bollocks excusing some of the more dishonest practices of this industry.

    @grassyknoll

    Problem is we can keep saying "oh well it's the way it is" but this has gone on since the beginning of the industry. I'd rather look for change than just sit there. You get people behind early access now so why do these triple A crooks need to make "vertical slices" which DO deceive people? Why not shows us when you got something to show? Would that be so bad?

    Personally I would like to move away from 2 years of fake footage and CGI with no bearing on the game in their marketing but as we see all the time people fall for it so they won't stop, especially when people actually defend the practice. Hell I also know the industry is basically a load of scammers when it comes to marketing but even I believed a trusted developer I knew (in the past) to be honest and upfront.

    We need change not excuses as to why they lie.

    Whatever I'm not getting into lala land PC elite bull, I've not read one single person say that so you think what you want.

    From what I see a trusted, VERY trusted, developer pulled a Watch Dogs/Colonial Marines (as recent examples) and people are (RIGHTFULLY not pathetically) pissed off with it. In your rush to bad mouth PC users you forget CDPR outright denied the game didn't look as good as their promotional material and it is only now it's coming out they talk of "trailers" instead of gameplay footage.

    CDPR dropped the ball big time and this is the fallout, nothing about willy waving and it's clear you don't really understand the issue is a bigger problem within this industry. While they all do it this is going to keep on happening. Like I said E3 soon which game will it be this time?

    That's because no other industry so blatantly and openly misleads consumers like the games industry. If they were more honest in what they are going to sell and more honest in how they market their products you would not see these complaints so.....

    I wouldn't go as far as not buying it. Sure it looks like CDPR have entered triple A now but that just means you take their PR word as utter bollocks and judge for yourself at launch rather than believe them (man that is so sad to type about them :( ).

    It's still the Witcher though, it will still be a bloody good game.

    "while assets in Witcher3 like the grass look like a tarted up Witcher1"

    I think that's Youtube, I have to admit that actually crossed my mind at times in the footage but scaled back graphics or not it's not going to be THAT scaled back :)

    I think it is likely to on par with 2 with some new effects like the wind through the trees and the particle effects. It'll be fine, not the game we were sold for a couple of years and CDPR have lost their credibility and joined the ranks of the triple A bullshitters club, but the game will be good and still looks pretty decent.
