  • The PS4 Slim is real - confirmed

  • kirankara 23/08/2016

    @Fourfoldroot

    You again misunderstanding. It's not about increasing the order size, but an accumulation of orders over the years.

    Effectively they are maximising the amount of time that AMD are using their factories to produce ps4 components, so they will get discounts for that.

    When Nvidia didnt get contract for next gen consoles they stated they were not disappointed as they didnt feed the orders would justify the amount of time they would be used for producing these components when they could be used for the production of their own components to sell at retail prices.

    No mate, you misunderstand, that's way it works. They have contracts with AMD and based upon the number of units that have been produced the price per unit will decrease. So for example a million units produced will cost Sony 150 each and after 5 million units have been produced they will only pat 130 each unit and so on. Is an incentive for Sony to keep placing larger orders

    "The slims are always cheaper to produce. You'll have initial price parity as its a new thing, then the price will drop. It's always the same."

    Yup, Sony will rinse it at same price whilst is still selling well, then when sales slow down they will drop in price and then as manufacturing costs drop further due to number of units being produced they will drop further. I don't expect any drastic price cut for at least 6 months though

    @rep-

    That is my point, trolling is completely negative.

    Being passionate and being a fanboy are supremely different imo.

    I love football and will passionately discuss with friends and have banter even, but push come to shove I will also take my hate off and say LFC are not as good as United and so on.

    Im also not just talking about occasional bit of banter, but that continued attempt to make someone feel bad about something.

    I am not going to be all holier than thou and say Ive never put my tongue firmly in cheek and not tore apart a ps4 fanboy for having pops at xboners, or retorted at console fanboys having pop at PC gaming etc. I have, but I never go out my way to do so, and is not my sole purpose for coming on the site. I also ultimately will try harmonise things in serious discussion, and if there's no meeting point I just walk away.

    You can be passionate and mature too. No justification for continuously being a douche.

    None of it winds me up any more, as I just find fanboyism pathetic.

    Same way I find football fans who "hate" another set of fans over a team they support. Is a frickin game. Where's the need to take it all so seriously.

    Similarly, as a passionate Nintendo fan, I can say I love their games, but the wiiu was a bit of a rubbish piece of hardware, despite having some great games.

    These fanboys lack some perspective and ability to be analytical and critical.

    Be passionate, but just don't be completely blind and fanatical.

    150 sounds way too cheap. These companies redesign not for customer satisfaction, but to finally make some money off hardware when costs of production can be reduced. I fully expect it to stay around 200

    well that's a whole lot of ugly. What the hell were they thinking? ps4 already looked good, didn't really need slimming down that much, and in reality, doesn't look that much slimmer, but is whole lot uglier. Looks cheap and tacky. Reply +8
  • ZeniMax alleges John Carmack stole "thousands of documents" developing Oculus

  • kirankara 23/08/2016

    @Waraich

    "I like how everyone is fine with JC potentially stealing from his former employer."

    I think the key word at this point is "POTENTIALLY". So far it is an accusation and he has not been found guilty, so how can people be fine with him stealing? He technically hasn't stolen anything in eyes of law yet, simply is accused of doing so.

    At this point everyone just venting hate at Zenimax, who frankly are utter c*%*s, so until he's proven to have stolen anything, you will find people will happily hate them and will doubt any claims they make, as let's be honest, they have a lot to gain by this move, and for little work too. You kinda have to question, why Zenimax have no competing product that is based on their work, no known prototypes etc etc, and why claims were only launched once they knew Facebook handed out a whole lotta Benjamins for the technology.

    Welcome to Copyright, and worse still American copyright laws. You can literally sue for anything in America.

    You know in your microwave and washing machine manual it warns you against putting pets in them? Thank a crazy American woman who washed her cat and then dried it in microwave(didn't end well unsurprisingly) and tried to sue when cat died.

    More fanboys arguing equals more hits, and thus more advertising revenue. Simple business logic. That's way of internet, which is why EG's level of journalism has degenerated in recent years and descended into almost IGN level of appealing to the lowest level of readers.

    Believe it or not, this used to be a reputable website once.

    Ironsoldier was a troll tbh. He was funny and I liked him, but I asked him to tone it down, not cause I was offended, but because I would like a more peaceful, mature forum, but I still couldnt help but laugh at his banter.

    I dunno why people get their knickers in twist at everything tbh. Most people get more defensive about their gaming format than their own family.

    I don't even take insults to myself that seriously, let alone jovial comments about a gaming machine I own.

    As for certain posters who seem to love stirring it up, I prefer to just chuckle and smile at the fact that these douchebags seem to enjoy trying to argue with people rather have a pleasant discussion about shared passion for gaming.

    awww good to see you responding with usual well thought out comments that actually have some depth and point to them....oh wait.

    Not my fault you made a clown of yourself with your last post and missed my clearly made point about how the need to pander to a big bunch of girls who get upset about every single detail, means you will end up having to ban everyone for silly little things.


    Ironsoldier been banned for trolling, but console gamers who constantly troll PC gamers, that's OK , right, as we are not as important as console gamers.

    We endure people coming on every PC thread with comments about ha ha master race, need to spend million pounds to play on PC, can't sit and play with your tv etc etc. We simply laugh it off and throw some comments back at them. Why? cause we not so insecure that we can't just laugh at the stupidity and don't take it all so seriously.

    Antropie trolled xb1 owners for almost 3 years and didn't get banned. Why>? because he was loved by ps4 owners trolling xb1 owners and there would be no one left to make comments on EG and no hits, equals no m0ney.

    Simple fact is, there is no consistency on this site with way it's monitored.

    You don't like Ironsoldier, fine, I didn't like Antropie and Muzakkas and found them far more annoying and troll like.

    You can have a hissy fit all you like and throw petty insults, but my point is valid.

    I didn't contradict myself,that was kinda my point.

    People either need to grow a pair or we have to adopt a regimemtal and overly political approach and start banning people for every pathetic comment.

    Antropie was far worse than ironsoldier and no one said boo to him.

    I've been sworn at, had my mother insulted and the people didn't get banned.

    No consistency here at all.

    Personally liked Ironsoldier, although he took trolling too far on some occasions.

    The way people get offended by every little thing these days is pathetic, wish people would just grow a pair and get a sense of humour.

    Reality is, the people who argue with characters like Ironsoldier and the other trolls, actually enjoy this, otherwise they would just ignore these comments.

    I don'y get EG's banhammer, as they seem to tolerate racial, sexist and darn right rude comments at times, as well as ridiculous trolling for years on end and then suddenly ban people for relatively inoffensive comments.

    Couldn't agree less regarding FMV. He's passionate about PC gaming, and reacts to those who criticise it unfairly. Fair enough in my books. Maybe those bans should be applied to those people who constantly have a pop at PC gaming generally instead, as this is paramount to trolling or bullying if you are an oversensitive sort.

    There's no consistency to EG's banning or general standards, this is issue.

    Yes there was a misunderstanding between kongzi and uncle lou but is the underlying theme that arose in comments section that annoys me, what comes through time and time again, that PC gamers aren't meant to talk about pc gaming because it's boring and no one cares and we should go away and talk about it somehere else. We should go sit at the back of the bus and be quiet.

    "The golden rule for PC gamers when entering discussion: If in doubt -- go out. There's plenty of articles on this site (and entire other sites) where PC talk is relevant. This is not one of them. Not at all."

    Fuck that.

    I hate the way that as PC gamers somehow we have to be sensitive to poor little console owner's feelings, because we are a minority here.

    Uncle Lous reacted to someone's comment about how "this isnt kind of game I play on PC". So, someone else brought PC gaming into equation, and he he reacted wondering why this isnt a game wouldnt want to play on PC, cause frankly, if yu have the hardware, you will find the definitive version of game on a gaming PC.

    Everything escalated from that comment, so there was a context to everything that followed.

    AS PC Gamers, we are frankly seen as a minority and only allowed to talk about our format when in our own little thread about PC only related subjects? But ps4 owners will troll shit out xboners in xb1 threads, and this is fine in eyes of most.

    I see gaming as gaming, if there's any relevance of the comments to a thread to other comments or thread topic, then that's fine in my eyes(hell, even we can have comments totally off topic if done in friendly manner) There's no reason to have a policy where only comments related to a particular topic or format etc.

    That's far too controlling imo.

    "Wow your system sounds amazing...kudos to all those cables you managed to fit in your room.

    A) I spend my working days in front of a PC
    B) there's too much important stuff on it to use it for gaming
    C) I don't spend a lot of money on my gaming. I don't have a lot of time for it either. I have other priorities. I'd buy a vintage synthesizer, travel around south east Asia, get my suits tailor made and put my feet in fine Italian leather, invest in business, you name it...before I'd buy a second PC to play games. Not to say that's better, just different choices I make.

    Like I said...not everybody is as obsessed as the core."

    Wow that is a bitter rant.

    I simply read it as UncleLou saying gaming is gaming whatever system you play it on as far as he's concerned as you can play it with a gamepad on tv with pc and even in small form factor if you wanted.

    In fact generally the biggest distinctions between two formats would be fps mp games would rather play on PC due to mouse and kb support or RTS games on PC as again mouse and KB are better for these games.

    The whole anti PC enthusiast rant is little bit OTT. Like you said, everyone chooses what they can afford to spend on their hobby, whatever it is and prioritises accordingly.

  • Nvidia unveils cut-down GeForce GTX 1060 3GB

    well done buddy.

    I am happy for you.

    I am genuinely impressed with with AMD stepped up recently. I just wish they had managed more tbh as then Nvidia would be forced to do more too, and cut prices. i had a 290 and didn't have bad experiences, but at time AMD were just not as good with driver support and their software was very rough, and I was just happy to go back to Nvidia. I gave a friend's younger brother that GPU.

    AMD seem much stronger overall than they were though
