    Sony and microsft partnership

    ...Sony's the one that has been building streaming services, so far Microsoft has been offering physical backwards compatibility and game library subscription that still requires you to download the game before playing. So you're starting on the wrong foot here. Microsoft has been testing the waters for digital only iteration of their console, but even that hasn't been about streaming, since we live in an age (generation) where physical discs still come with downloads. And what the heck is going on with all your devices? If you have eight devices constantly draining your network, you need to up your security. If it's due to family, consider getting more than one line, I'm assuming you still have mobile network. If you have only one device actively using the network at a time, it should be able to use the whole capacity. Every device that has access doesn't magically carve out an equal share of the bandwidth that somehow becomes unusable by other devices. 10 is 10, if not, your hardware is set up wrong or just outright inadequate.
  2. This probably doesn't count as serious to most people, but did I drop my brand new, most expensive phone I had ever gotten (600€) within a week from getting it? Yes, yes I did. It was in a case, but it nonetheless managed to land on a sharp rock, denting the aluminium on one corner. Fine, can't have anything nice. I'm pretty sure it's my only metallic object that can be dented like that dropping from lap height. Pretty confident it's the first time I damaged my phone too, but at least it wasn't the screen. It was also my first phone I used without a screen protector, because someone decided rounded edges are cool. My Mi A1 came bent from the start, I guess they might have a flaw. Thankfully I wasn't accused of dropping it (or otherwise being at fault), I guess going back to the store within an hour was credible enough. They replaced it without issue.

    $1500 PC, random half second lag spikes/freezes

    If your lag spikes are like freezes, also manifest outside of games and especially if you have upgraded from HDD to SSD on the same config your BIOS settings could be at fault. I don't recall anymore the correct terms, but that used to be a thing some years ago. Your hardware is easily new enough that I doubt this is the case, but if the symptoms match, it's worth researching. Otherwise, trying to expand on what has already mentioned, have you monitored your temps? If your CPU throttles under load, that could cause a fine myriad of issues.
  4. Doesn’t every page there say that you have to pay? How is that not clear? Or are we back to my lazy English hypothesis? I thought your problem was him calling an apparently mandatory thing something that is usually a voluntary thing, now it sounds like you too would be arguing that it could be unclear? How dense would you have to be to approach that guy and expect free work from him? I honestly think he has put up enough reminders... ”Oh, those? They couldn’t possibly mean me, so that guy is a scammer!!”
  5. If you want a service that you are expected to pay for, it doesn't really matter what the transaction is called. When the rules are clear, you can either take it or leave. He's clear about his rules and delivers a service, so it's not a scam. You don't need to be happy about the price, you don't need to be happy about his marketing skills, but that doesn't make trading a knowledge/skill for a compensation a scam. Like I said, this is not how OP approached this, and I don't care about some word.
  6. The world is full of break rooms with "optional" coffee funds.
  7. That's not how OP approached this, they called someone a scammer because they want to get paid for their work. That's not scamming, it can be greedy for sure, but I feel like someone who looks into something like this should be smart enough to understand their options. It's not the same as people selling for example ancient Macs for ten times what their real market value is, that's a scam because they know some people only see it's an Apple product and expensive, so they go for it. What that guy sells isn't shiny, you actually need to know what you're after and want to get it done. I went to see what the fuss is about myself, and I got a cancer from that forum theme. It could as well be lazy English, could be using the vaguely wrong word because that's what PayPal uses (let me know if PayPal has a separate public "Pay me!" -form option). I don't really care. There are places where donations are taxed, or he could make so little it's not taxable, so aren't we just guessing here? In the end he could call it whatever he wants and still just as easily skip the taxes. That's still at least not scamming the customer, and who loves the tax agency?
  8. How is it more trustworthy if it's free? Out of curiosity, do you feel like art should also always be free?
  9. Huh? He is offering a service and wants to be paid for it. Not sure if I'm missing something here. Computer stores also offer services the consumer could do themselves (for e.g. building, bios update), are they scammers too? If any credible company doesn't offer the service, it only makes him even less of a scammer, he'd then just be taking an advantage of a demand he perceived/discovered. It'd be a scam if he just took the money and ran. Are there people offering to do this for free for complete strangers? Would you trust them more? At least with a money trail you have a venue to try and do something if you actually get scammed. No, I wouldn't use a service like that. No, I wouldn't recommend anyone else used a service like that. But selling off your experience/skills is not a scam, it's just business.

    Trying to sell my XBOX 360

    It depends entirely on your location. See what other people have sold their systems for and go from there. For e.g. my last 360 purchase was 35€ with 10+ games, and one of the games was perhaps 75% my reason to get it. Before that I picked up an S (arguably best iteration) for 20€. It’s entirely possible your region doesn’t have the same supply and demand mine does, but that’s something you need to research yourself. Otherwise my two cents is: without games that might sell for at most 40€, if the controllers are solid. If not, 20-30€ depending on those marks. E still performs the same as the other models, has less connectivity than the S, and around here 100€ is in the used Xbone category. But again, your local market could be different.

    xBox 360 Slim RDOD

    Return it. Sounds like the previous owner already took it apart, wasn’t able to fix the issue/caused the issue by doing so in the first place, and just decided to pass the problem to someone else. Who knows what the extent of the damage might be, it’s not worth it to try to deal with yourself if the sale is recent enough. You’re right, HDD isn’t required to boot. It’s only optional storage. Confront them about this, be polite and save the messages.
  12. Since you'll more than likely choose to subscribe to PS+, I think it's worth to jump in already. Get a second hand PS4 and enjoy whatever it is you're considering a PS for. There'll be more great games, so passing on because "right now I wouldn't get the best possible experience" is just silly. If you have the money, enjoy life now. Sony's great effort with exclusives will likely help PS4 maintain a decent resell value even after PS5 comes out, combined with more than likely BC, your investment on the console might end up being only a few tens of dollars. So I'd say go for it.

    Xbox 360 power brick compatibility

    You're correct, they pull the amperage they need, and as all brinks designed for the phat are 12V, it's all good. The plugs are also designed so that you can't create an incompatible pair. S and E use a completely different plug, and as Jasper is the final iteration of phat, that's all you need to get right. Just be aware that the bricks liked to go bad as well, so you shouldn't just rush and buy the cheapest brick you can find.

    Whats your dream build?

    This is one drunken thread if I have ever seen one. I just wish I had a stronger CPU for my MMORPGs, the rest is pretty nice. It would of course be nice to be a millionaire, but I'm quite happy with what I have right now. This is really overdone topic in general.
