Is there anything new about the X1 limbo? It didn't seem like a game that would really benefit from more power.

Still a last gen game either way.

I dunno, seems like the entire generation is off to a super slow start on either side. Everything still feels rough around the edges. The vast majority of next...

PlayStation 4

Bundling two last gen games says a lot though, doesn't it?

That said, TLOU is still the best exclusive on either platform. I guess kudos to Sony for recognizing that the last gen remakes are still...

Yeah, that's def 5400rpm. The hybrids ain't bad but they really need way more than 8GB of cache for a console. That's fine for a laptop where you can squeeze your windows boot and a few common apps...

If they don't and someone else does, I'll remember to buy my next TV from that someone else.

Anyway, I think we're finally at the point where 4K TVs are reasonably affordable, but where are the...

Well, that's assuming your receiver is set up correctly. On my denon "direct" bypasses all processing, including channel balance. I would think that if it shows DTS and DD on the hud for the other...

Yeah, it's really not a big difference, depends on the game. Whether or not it's worth the money depends how much money is worth to you. :p

It's a straight swap. How much space you need is up to you.

Id actually recommend a crucial mx100 over an EVO, that drive has a nasty bug that requires a firmware update or else it gets much...

Any SSD you can buy will be fast enough to max out the PS4's SATA2.

What I mean to say is that they literally don't need a proprietary tech to achieve the same goal. We don't have real time TrueHD encoding on consoles because they can output uncompressed 7.1 on...

Dolby Atmos and video games ?

If a dev wanted to implement Atmos it would be a piece of cake. Like it requires almost no technical effort on their part whatsoever, they can just light up a few extra audio channels and plug it...

The only thing I didn't like about the asrock z77 board I had was that the minimum fan speed was way, way too loud/fast. It was bizarre, I upgraded nothing but the mobo and my system got super loud. ...

I think this console war has been rough for a lot of gamers though. Last gen my group of friends were strictly 360 due to MP, and the PS4 and PC were the "other" platforms, which was fine because...
