Totally not Xbox One related but a nice reminder of how far gaming has progressed (or not, depending on how you look at it):


http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/12/...hday-gaming-pc

Happy anniversary....

35 years ago, a video game revolution was sweeping through American culture. Shopping mall arcades were crammed with teenagers blasting menacing Space Invaders and lethal Asteroids to fading phosphorous particles. Cartridge-based home gaming consoles were beginning to catch on, bringing interactive entertainment into living rooms. University computer labs intended for scientific research were overrun with students programming their own electronic versions of Dungeons & Dragons. And with the coming of the 1979 Christmas shopping season, two revolutionary new home computers from Atari appeared on store shelves, machines which would forever change our perceptions of what PCs were capable of...

Nice grab. I'm 100+ hours into this game and am guessing about 1/2 way thru it. Lots to do and see to get side tracked with.

I've been waiting to pick this up. @ $39, sounds like a good deal.

anyone know whether the XB1 or PS4 has better DVD upscaling to 1080p? I have both and am not 100% sure but I think the XB1 might be a little better

So I just got a new Pioneer SC-82 AVR and I am running 2.1 with no center channel. The only way I can hear voices in games like Forza Horizon 2 is if my audio is set to stereo uncompressed. Is that the only way without using an optical cable to hear voices in games? I've done some reading on Xbox forums but I trust you guys a little more.

Xbox One deals are definitely better then the PSN sales. I'm totally against buying Digital downloads because I get better deals on the discs especially after I sell/trade. That and I like the idea that if I do keep them, 10 years from now I'll still be able to play them...good luck with the Digital stuff because once live is gone, so are they.


Anyways, give me 30-40/50% off, now suddenly that doesn't matter

Ain't that the truth. 50+ hours in and only level 15 and one dragon killed. I feel like I have barely scratched the surface of the game.

I can't think of a single game from just 3 years ago that I would want to play today much less a game from 10 years ago.

I still have an original NES because it has games that are still fun to play today. Tecmo Super Bowl still gets my vote for best game ever.

If the MP was still supported and had a large player base in tact, I would still play Halo 2 and GOW.

I'm sorry--you lost me. What game are you talking about?

There are a number of games older than 3 years that I'd play again and plenty from the past 3 or 4; I played BioShock over last year and it was just as much fun as the first time. Some things hold up well, some not so much. I tried to play Fable Anniversary and while fun, the graphics, though updated, were far outdated. Halo: CE in Halo: MCC is also pretty quaint.

I hope I'm not playing an XBOne or PS4 ten years from now. I hope I've moved on to the next thing. I don't plan to ever buy a game disc again. This gen is digital only for me. With the exception of rentals.

Yes. It's been borked for me since I tried getting on over 30 minutes ago. At one point I got on from my 360, but then that went out too.
