    EU tariffs on game consoles

    I suspect it’s rules of origin (so has it shipped from America, or originated in America) rather than is the company American, that’s relevant. You tend to try and put punative tariffs on things that actually effect the economy, rather than things hat have no real impact whatsoever.

    It was completely nuts. But that goal at home is the one that won it.

    You can't pay off the video replay via shady "sponsorship" payments from your state owned companies.

    "Have they got the right decision?" - "Yes, very clearly as everyone could see in that tv replay".

    (3 given they'd got 1 goal when I started writing the post; 2 by the time I'd got to the end of the sentence).

    We're all Spurs fans tonight. There goes one of the three they need!
  8. Headphones are the gold standard, until you move your head. Unless you've got a VR headset on with head tracking, and then it's great. The problem with speakers is that you're never going to be in exactly the right place and calibration is a pain. And most people don't have those types of setups anyway.

    Xbox One backwards compatibility

    They change the mip-mapping, so the really high res textures you see close to the camera are shown out into the distance.
  10. 8k is four times 4K, which is four times 1080p. There’s not going to be a 16 fold increase in graphics power for those last gen remasters, and you’re not going to notice the difference between that and a rescale to 4K anyway.
  11. The audio acceleration is an odd one. Have they licensed Creative’s patents? Are they actually going to do something properly interesting (e.g. microphones in the controller to provide a room feedback loop, as for A.V. receiver or sonos trueplay tuning?) is it actually just pointless bullshit given there’s possibly far more variation in audio devices/environments than there are in displays? or is it a placeholder to get Sony’s variant of Bixby into the home?

    Sci Fi recommendations

    I don't even know why this thread exists before the publication of Ian McEwan's Machines Like Me.
  13. the avclub books readers review is good. @Raoull duke: agree with your first; doubt the other two. Now TV is 720p. It’s ok, is about as far as I’d go, as long as you’re sitting far enough away. You’re never going to really mistake it for 1080p or 4k, though the naturalistic mud and grime helps disguise it.

    The Division 2

    I think it's been fixed - I'm certainly filling up to 6 ammo fairly regularly, and seeing it drop more if I use it. I've only used the sharpshooter specialisation. The gun is great if you get a headshot on a purple enemy. It feels irrelevant against a yellow enemy (on hard or challenging). The static buffs to particular weapon types are presumably meaningful. (I should really try a different specialisation, but now I'm entirely geared around rifles).

    Seems quite close just now.
