Ya who knows what it was. I bought the sabertooth X99 board that's supposed to be extra tough, I guess we'll see how long it lasts. I really should get a UPS though.

Must have been a power surge or something. It just shut off in the middle of a game. I couldn't even get the fans to spin while the 8 pin CPU cable was connected, so the mosfets must have blown,...

My system randomly **** the bed so I've been playing the "buy replacement parts one at a time and hope it fixes it" game for the past few days. I'm down $700 for a new PSU, MB and CPU, but I should...

The fan speed/noise ramps up in reaction to internal temperature, so a PS4 in a confined space in a hot room is going to be way louder than a well ventilated one in a normal room.

Sounds like they redesigned the power supply. 8% less power isnt enough to make a huge difference , otherwise they would have touted how much quieter it is alongside the other stuff.

I think it makes people more comfortable with being locked in to a platform. Makes it feel like your purchases don't have an expiration date on them. Sometimes you just have an itch to play some...

I turned a profit every time I bought and sold it, so I'm not really mad about it. The only time I bought it new was launch and I made a solid $100 off that. I thought it would at the very least make...

The funny thing is, if you track back about two years in this and the Xbox thread, you'd see the opposite coming from me, a lot more positive about Sony and negative about MS. So it's not like I have...

The OG xbox was literally a PC. I don't think it had any custom hardware at all. It wouldn't even be emulation, just an OS running in a VM. Def way more complex to get the OG Xbox emulator on the 360...

They don't have the source code to each game, but they do have it for their own APIs and SDK. Any time the game calls a system level API it's essentially handing over control to microsoft code, so...

Likewise I just double downed on PC. Like I was saying before in another thread, there's also a lot I like about the fact that there's much less difference between them. You can go deep into one...

That's easier said than done when there's an upfront cost to the system and games are non refundable. You can't just dismiss the huge barrier to entry as some sort of cynical hipster stance. I don't...

Yeah, that's the thing that seems different about this gen. It feels way harder to justify the second platform. They're so similar in library and functionality that there's hardly anything that...

Not to mention the X1's hardware disc encryption is surely different from the 360s. The drive may literally not be able to read anything beyond the basic identifying info. Software decryption is a...

Could be that they're still doing some recompilation on the back end, just that it's universal. I'm sure they have a good reason.

Because if they also had a bunch of great exclusives for 2015 in addition to all the stuff they showed for 2016, it'll get there much quicker. At the rate they're going it may never make sense.

No rumors, but I doubt it would be that difficult to port the emulator to PC.
