    Nintendo Switch

  2. Back compatibility should be relatively trivial this time around. This will be the first Sony console to have the same architecture as its predecessor, and the second to not have been designed by a room full of overstimulated SIGGRAPH attendees hopped up on E-numbers and fizzy pop.

    WTF - New Thundercats series!!!

    That is the best thing that has ever happened.

    EDGE #320

    They did a 3- or 4-page news piece on it in the last issue or the one before that, presumably based on the hands-on event. I did wonder whether they would skip a review after that.
  5. Fox would've at least got a licencing fee for that; IIRC the DVD sales were a big part of why they agreed to finance Serenity. Syfy gets nothing.

    Playstation Vita

    I've got it. It's fine. I don't know what you mean by stability issues, none of the emulated PSone games on the Vita have shown any issues that I've noticed. Microsoft is actually doing a huge amount of work in the Xbox One to make existing games work accurately, even without the 4K and HDR features they're enabling on some titles. Sony are doing something similar but don't really seem to have the knack. I'd be amazed if asking developers to add trophies and formally re-release them was the real choke point; more likely the constraint on the number of games being emulated on PS4 stops Sony being overwhelmed by a job they may not be cut out for.
  7. Not in a way that affects Syfy’s likelihood of renewing the show.

    Wasn’t there some hellish grimdark Thundercats comic in the early 2000s?

    The Unofficial Pre-E3 2018 Hype Thread

    Switch Starter Pack maybe. Leave out that dock and controller shell, take a bit off the price in lieu of a “real” price drop because one isn’t needed.

    The Unofficial Pre-E3 2018 Hype Thread

    Yeah, it seems legit that after confirming that the FF7 remake will probably take many years and all the money to trickle out in a form that only barely resembles the original, they'd start also remaking another FF game that people give an order of magnitude less of a crap about. When has Kojima ever done a separate gameplay and cinematic trailer, either?

    So next month's teaser is just a PS4 controller?

    Elite Dangerous

    That's interesting but the game's other combined interaction/navigation targets, and probably the things you navigate to most frequently in the game - starports - operate on a completely different principle. In that case the nav target and the actual interaction target are exactly the same thing, and once you're locked on you're good. You're trained from the outset that this is how navigation works and then it turns out that, actually, that's the only case where this applies. I can understand why it works a certain way for conflict zones etc., where there is an ill-defined area that may contain more than one target, but it's really unintuitive for anything else. Makes me wonder if starports originally worked on the same principle as nav beacons etc., people got sick of how that worked, and that one case was fixed. Anyway, motion headlook on the PS4 is amazing when you're navigating at inappropriate speed or near an object:

    Again?! I only just caught up on the last two months.

    Avengers: Infinity War - April 2018

    And the choice they make will decide what kind of franchise this is from here on out.

    Okay, I figured out what was going wrong with scanning. It was only ever affecting Nav Beacons. It turns out that when you lock on one from the navigation screen, although it shows the actual beacon object on your little scan screen, you’re actually locked on to a weird non-simulated placeholder object that you can’t interact with, including by scanning. You need to get to the rough vicinity of the placeholder, then spot the actual beacon or choose the beacon from your contacts list (not the beacon listed in navigation!) and lock on to that.
