    Football Thread 2018/19

    As long as Qatar keeps putting money into European football through beIN Sports buying TV rights or by investing heavily in clubs like PSG then UEFA will be happy enough.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    He'd be getting ready for another season on loan at Vitesse Arnhem. Not trying to be a shit stirrer with that statement but sadly a lot of England's best young players are already at the "big" clubs which seems to be the worst place for them to go from being good youth players to good senior players.
  3. Surely they can't have been sacked for just those tweets? Fries in particular seems to have been spectacularly harshly treated. A twelve year stint ended just for sticking up for a co-worker? That seems beyond crazy. I can just about see an argument for getting rid of Price but that's mainly driven by my own workplace experiences where a contract might be renewed after twelve months and the idea Arenanet might have been looking for an out. That'd still be shitty behavior on their part though.

    Xbox "Scarlett" - next gen consoles

    If you look at something like the GPD Win2 which has fairly decent gaming capabilities despite being hamstrung by an Intel GPU then I'm reasonably sure that if Microsoft or Sony went to AMD and were willing to foot the bill then a portable Xboxone or PS4 would be possible. The biggest technical hurdles I can see is the issue of how big games have gotten and how the Xbox/PS4 both practically require you to be online all the time.

    Xbox "Scarlett" - next gen consoles

    SSD prices are still falling, just not as quickly as they have over the past couple of years where the price per GB has almost halved every year. Custom PCs recommended SSD in their product guide has gone from £107 to £95 over the last few issues for instance. I think we could end up with something like AMDs StoreMI where each console comes with a combination of a small SSD and a traditional hard drive to give some of the benefits of an SSD but without the massive price of a 2 or 4TB SSD.

    Sony Blocking Accounts Between Devices

    Not sure if this is the right thread but I think it's appropriate.

    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

    What's this about levels being removed? I thought it was just the Wii-U game plus a few more areas. Has much been taken out? Tried the demo on 3DS and Switch. It's nice that the 3DS is still getting new releases but it just looks so much better on the Switch that it'd be hard to justify picking the 3DS version if you had the choice.
  8. Was Orkos original point referring to just violence in games? I didn't take that from their post, I thought it was reasonably clear they were referring to games that are built around being un-PC and try to revel in that fact for the marketing campaign. I can't think of many games that were deliberately un-PC and also good.

    Xbox "Scarlett" - next gen consoles

    Hololens is still an entire system, with it's own processor, gpu etc. Unless the next model is dramatically cheaper then it'd be a very expensive option to use instead of a relatively cheap VR headset. I think the current Mixed Reality headsets from Lenovo and friends all use tracking technology that started out in the current Hololens.

    Xbox "Scarlett" - next gen consoles

    There's just about enough of the pieces falling into place that a story claiming Scarlett was Intel based wouldn't be instantly dismissed as fantastical nonsense, even if it is fantastical nonsense I just pulled out my arse.

    Xbox "Scarlett" - next gen consoles

    I'm going to make some silly predictions because what is the point of speculating about new machines if you cant make silly predictions? -2020=Intel. That's how they are going to ensure they have the most powerful machine. Team up with Intel and get a great price on the CPU/GPU, Optane, SSD etc. Also gives instant credibility to Intels attempt to become a player in the GPU space. -Games will only be available via download. -Drop the need for Xbox Live Gold in order to soften the blow of losing physical games -The Scarlett VR headset is basically a cutdown version of the next HoloLens. It can track your hand and finger movements so that a greater range of games can be played without controllers. And the headsets wireless. -Scarlett includes one of Microsofts new AI chips which makes Drivatar style functionality available to all games. It can create an AI opponent version of Musashi in something like Killer Instinct by analysing how they play Streetfighter for instance. -MS buy CD Projekt Red and Cyberpunk is the big launch game for Scarlett.
  13. They said GameCube controllers will work with the game during the direct. I think it was confirmed afterwards there'll be another set of GameCube style controllers being released this Winter. I'm guessing you'll need the same USB adapter they brought out for the Wii-U game.

    My prediction is that Scarlet is the next console and a VR headset, not two separate consoles.
  15. Wait, does this mean a Solid Snake amiibo?
