What does the Metal Gear Solid 5 PS4 Pro patch actually do?

Spydy

6 months ago

Doesn't look like this patch supersamples to 1080p from 1440p which is a disappointment as edges are quite harsh in MGS5. Can Eurogamer confirm?

Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition top of UK chart

Spydy

4 years ago

Why would anyone pay 45, 55 or even 60 for a game? Just setup a US PS4 account, add a US address to your current Amazon account then buy store cards on Amazon.com, log-on to the US store and download. D3 cost me 36 on PS4. Sure, it's digital but at that price and compared with the UK prices I'm perfectly happy. I'd prefer physical but at those prices, I intend to download from the US store almost exclusively.

Sony investigates GTA 5 PSN installation issues

....and they are sending out the standard "try again" response when I asked about a refund. I attempted to download and install twice, which both failed. Pretty devastating considering it's biggest game launch this gen.

Certainly want my money back - considering I paid a premium for it as well (hoping that I could play it at midnight on the 17th)

Valve-backed Xi3 Piston console starts at $1000

Spydy

5 years ago

@Widge You can easily build a fast rig in an SFF case. Not piston sized, but portable, certainly. I've got a Silverstone HTPC case, 8GB DDR3, AMD APU Mobo and it cost me less than 350. Granted it runs games like shit, but replace mobo with ivy bridge mobo, i5 and a GPU and your golden...and coming well under $1000.

It's almost like Alienware simply multiplying cost because of branding.

Nobody is going to buy that at $1000 when you can build your own, twice as fast and at half the price.

Thoughts from New York: PlayStation 4 feels less visionary than its predecessor

Spydy

5 years ago

It's true that hardware is now in the back seat. Consumers simply don't care what powers their experiences as long as it's seamless and quick.

I personally think the hardware is fantastic. An exotic APU with 8 GB GDDR5...and that controller...it looks exceptional. There's a caveat though....I think Sony may revise the memory. 8GB of GDDR5? It's too expensive unless they have a breakthrough on stacked memory, but I live in hope they stick with this config. Clearly, there's cooling issues as no console was on show; it's still being worked on.

Remember when MS gave away a new 360 to everyone in the audience at E3 2011 (I think it was E3 2011?). I cringed and died a little inside. Clear bribery that journos were more than happy to sign up to.

To be honest though, I think this says more about the state for america's consumerism than journo integrity.

Hacked PS3 games running on Vita via Remote Play

Spydy

6 years ago

@vizzini More like your talking complete rubbish. Firstly, TCP/IP is not a protocol. It's a suite of protocols.

The data link layer doesn't packet switch. That's the job of a layer 3 device. Data link only forwards frames.

Also, when steaming video, there's no need to use TCP. You would more than likely use UDP which is connectionless and does not require re-assembly, lowering overall latency.

Uncharted 3 aiming controls to be patched

Spydy

7 years ago

lol. What issue? There isn't an issue with the controls. They are different from U2...so what? Adapt and overcome. It doesn't make the game any less enjoyable. Simply because a thread took off over at NeoGAF a small minority of gamers have seemingly grabbed the mindshare and ran. They invited 2 guys from GAF over and now there's a patch inbound....who's to say their any more credible than me or you.

This ladies and gentlemen is mass hysteria in tangible form.

Tech Analysis: Forza Motorsport 4

Spydy

7 years ago

I think there's some fairly big omissions in the comparison:

- GT5 can display at 1080p 2xMSAA 60fps (albeit with torn frames here and there), Forza 4 is locked at 720p
- No 3D mode for Forza 4
- GT5 engine is 5 years old

That being said Forza 4 is just a great, fun racer. Something GT has well and truly lost.
