What would be nice to see if someone takes the patent copy to india and starts manfacturing it their. This sort of thing has happened alot by scientist when people like this take the piss. Devaluing the drug overnight to 10 rupees. yes it could legal issues however it would destroy his little venture. go on go on go on..

Digital Foundry vs Xbox One streaming on Windows 10

You can either leave your Xbox One pad paired to the console itself or directly connect an Xbox One or Xbox 360 pad to your PC instead.

How? My xb1 couldnt maintain a connection with the controller 7 foot away. How the hell can it stream at a further distance away and let me game without the constant controller disconnections. I really liked the xb1 sadly I had to return due the to this major fundamental issue.

The seven year shadow left by Modern Warfare

@Cartho The last paragraph was what made Call of Duty. You are spot in with the cog comment. The game gave you the feel of what war is and was like to the average Jo. Not this Top Gun hero stuff that tries to sign everyone up to army these days. Medal of honor was the kick start with the Omaha beach landing. Its a shame that the games slowly lost the respect and times the game release in with the Poppy appeal centenary to ww1 build up. I find this disgraceful...

Microsoft "concerned" by claims GCHQ considered using Kinect for surveillance

Unfortunately its 14 years to late. The ability to turn on mobile phone microphones has been there since the day you bought your very 1st pay as u go mobile. When was the last time you used that front facing camera on your mobile? Mine was on the Nokia n95.I made 1 video call haven't used it since. They are still on most mobile devices to this day. I wouldn't worry about about kennect its to late. Just enjoy the tech.

Gran Turismo 6 launch sales were just a fifth of GT5's

GI-Joel

4 years ago

Everyone was just waiting for the reviews. 8/10 is the norm across most reviews. I got the game and it is more of the same. Gt has just become to much of a grind. It lacks the fun and excitement that forza offers. While technically a great achievement. I don't have the time or the patience to spend working through the events to unlock all the content. While the content is extensive sadly 80% of people will never unlock 80% of what the game has in those gigabytes. Time is premium money is premium. A car and track in a game that costs 40 quid is not premium..until this is addressed GT will become an old escort xr3i. Slowly disappear to be replaced with a new focus.

I might see about i7 980x upgrade. See these around for 250-350. Provided they haven't been totally cooked they should see another 5 years.

Get socket 1366 motherboard and an i7 920 or 950. With a bit of overclocking these chips are still amazing. Ive seen 1 for 50 on ebay.
The guy in the link below did some benching. worth a quick read. It would seem 1st generation i7 are still solid 5 years on.

I was looking at getting this card. After reading reviews it turns out it is just a 7970 boost addition refreshed and repackaged. Nothing to get excited about. One thing I will say AMD do a good job with eyefinity vs nvidia surround. especially if you don't have the same 3 monitors. Nvidia drivers cannot span in the highest resolution of the supported monitors. Just reverts to 1024-768 x 3 (3072-768). A really poor show nvidia.

Microsoft explains how Xbox One importing could work

GI-Joel

I'm really confused. Surely now that stupid camera & mic is not optional, voice recognition is no longer important, needed, a must for launch? Can't you just patch it in at a later date or make it an optional download? It really wouldn't bother me. We are all so use to being sold half a product these days (EA) are especially are great at this. They might be able to help you milk this idea and update your business model..it makes financial sense to me 😉

The Xbox One controller retails for $60 in the US

GI-Joel

5 years ago

When you have good hardware back ground coupled with a reasonable software house you have the means to get the best solutions for everyone. M$ yet again thinking dollar instead of customer. Xbox 360 was great. Now its gash. It would appear 180 continues the gashness. I'm no fan of product. Just get the most attractive offer at the time. Xbox just keeps getting worse by the week. Even torches come without batteries these days. On the plus side if they are using reverse psychology to sell the product and u turn before launch on cameras, mics,live costs, threat of always online, batteries, price, betamax looks & Tv to name a few. They might have a product that I might buy.
