Re: New Improved XboxOne Console in 2017

http://techcrunch.com/2016/05/26/microsoft-could-introduce-not-one-but-two-new-xbox-one-consoles/ Seems the new Xbox could be a 6TFLOP machine, while the NEO is rumored to be about 4. Looks like MS might be getting the performance crown back. An Xbox One slim is rumored for this year, but some are f...

Re: Should Sega have been braver / bolder with the Saturn ?

The surprise launch was a bone head move. It pissed off retailers and developers, two groups you kinda need for a successful system. People do seem to forget that in 1995 the Saturn wasn't being killed yet. It was selling at greater than 50% the rate of the PS1. The dumbest move they did was outrigh...

Re: Do Gamers Make Better Drivers?

A few years ago I had a driving incident in which a deer dashed out onto the road as I was approaching a highway exit. With Scott as my witness, I performed a high-speed power slide to avoid the deer and still make the exit. It was a thing of beauty and he claimed I acquired the skill from a drivin...

Re: Casual Friendly FPS?

If I remember correctly, they took the TF2 servers down on PS3. I have it on my laptop, but as strange as it may sound, I'm actually worse at aiming with with a mouse than I am with a thumbstick, lol. It can run on nearly any PC though, so I'd definitely recommend it too. Very easy to get into. Eve...

Re: New Improved XboxOne Console in 2017

Interesting. I'm not sure how an annual change is really going to work for them. How far back are they going to maintain compatibility? Apple only cares about the last 2 or 3 generations usually. A 3 year old phone being obsolete is pretty normal(especially with the two year cycle the US has been on...

PlayStation 4.5 Neo

I'm surprised there isn't a thread about this(or I missed in which case plz delete this) Anyway, word is that Sony is releasing a PS4 with a slight CPU boost, and a much better GPU. Supposedly there won't be exclusive games for it, just games that play best on the new system. I'm a bit surprised as ...

Re: So I'm not sure if my PS3 is dying

Just make sure if it is the GPU he is going to reball it, not reflow it. A reflow will temporarily fix the problem but won't last forever. A reball is a real fix.

Re: So I'm not sure if my PS3 is dying

It is not complicated. Anyone willing to invest a couple of hours can do it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPq4PaUSSUs This guy does a pretty good job showing the disassembly. My advice is when removing screws line them up in the order you take them out, so when you put them back you have an idea ...

Re: Most Addicting Video Game of All Time?

Most fun? Maybe not. Most addicting? Civilization without a doubt.

Whether it is Civ 1 or all the way through 5, if I start one of these games I'll be lucky if I don't lose my entire day. Just....one...more...turn.............
