Is this our next great dystopia?

Sounds ambitious. Unlike recent over-ambitious titles though, it sounds like there's an actual game worth playing in all that simulated reality.

I will definitely watch this with interest.

Switch clicks in the hands, but on paper, it's in trouble

Chufty

The problem is 280 shouldn't be "expensive" but it is. It's pocket change compared to every other technology product in your home, except the other consoless.

The console market is so messed up that people expect brand new top tier devices, that are the result of millions of pounds in R&D, to cost peanuts. Then they'll grumble at 280 and spend 3 times that on an immediately-obsolete smartphone instead.

Gaming on the Big Screen: Optoma GT1080 projector review

Chufty

4 years ago

Projector gaming is awesome, I'd highly recommend it to anyone thinking of taking the plunge. I got a great deal on the Optoma HD131XE which came with a screen for just 550, and haven't looked back.

It should be stressed that the "rainbow effect" from DLP projectors is entirely subjective. I can see it most of the time, but it doesn't annoy me at all. Some people see it and can't get over it, and some don't see it at all. So try before you buy.

It doesn't affect LCD projectors but you'll have to spend a bit more to get a good image.

And of course, you need a good sound receiver!

Team 17 developed the recent(ish) Lemmings remakes for PSP and PS3, so maybe that excuses them a little for this clone.

Snake moves with the times, Lara doesn't

"Console exclusivity" is a meaningless phrase.

If it's out on PC and Console X, it's not 'exclusive'.

As others have already pointed out, Sony enjoyed numerous years of Tomb Raider exclusivity on it's consoles.
TR has never been exclusive; the first game was released when Sega were dying and PC and PlayStation were the only gaming platforms worth talking about. What other "consoles" would TR have been released on, other than PlayStation?

A graphics card may well be useful without a PC, but your console is equally useless without a TV.

Nvidia G-Sync: the end of screen-tear in PC gaming

Chufty

5 years ago

Unfortunately this article only glosses quickly over the single biggest vsync issue for PC gaming - input lag. The barely imperceptible motion 'judder' you get with vsnyc turned on is absolutely nothing compared to the crushing and debilitating effect of input latency on your ability to use a mouse.

The statement in the article that G-sync "can't" address input lag puzzles me. If vsync's input lag is caused by the refresh delay - i.e. if the frame is delayed by 16ms because it missed the vertical refresh, the visual response to your input is also delayed by that 16ms - why doesn't eliminating this delay also eliminate the input lag?

Hmm, to Anandtech!

@AgentDaleCooper I actually like triple buffering at 120Hz. The input lag is still there but is HUGELY reduced compared to double buffered vsync at 60Hz - to the point where it's playable for slower paced games.

This "news" is bullshit. A couple of comments in a thread from YEARS AGO. He even claimed later in the comments (a year ago) that:

I am not in the inner circle as far as what Valve may or may not be doing. They just call me in to act when they need me.
EG, PLEASE shore up your journalism. Did you even look at the links you spunked into your hysteria-whipped article?

Xbox One available this November in the UK priced 429

Chufty

5 years ago

Some people have a messed up sense of value, especially on the Internet. 429 is peanuts for a cutting edge electronic product which has required so much R&D and design iteration.

People have no hesitation splashing out that on a smartphone (hide from the cost with a contract if you want, you're still spending it) which will be obsolete in a year and ancient history by the time the next-gen consoles are in full swing.

For 429 I'd get a crap TV, a half-decent suit, a rusty old banger, a swanky toaster or a day trip to New York.

I spent more than that on my slidy-doored wardrobe and you know what? It's nowhere near as fucking difficult to manufacture as a games console.

What you guys should be talking about is the lacklustre launch titles, draconian DRM requirements and the comparatively handicapped controller (wait till you try a DS4).
