  1. Microsoft didn't patent it. You don't even need to read the source, just the first line of the quote to understand it's a company called Ironburg that holds the patent, and Microsoft correctly licensed it for use. Not only that, 4 people actually ticked agree or like on your comment... yikes.
  2. Oh come on now, it will also be briefly mentioned on WAN Show before being derailed to talk about water bottles, underwear or floatplane.
  3. Nvidia is manually reviewing the orders to try and weed out the bots https://www.pcmag.com/news/nvidia-is-manually-reviewing-rtx-3080-orders-to-stop-scalpers
  4. Just want to settle this one, because I understand where the confusion is coming from. Bombastinator is right. Then I know because of the order the quotes read it may not make sense at first, but it seems Sony was betting in July that because of all the people staying at home there would be even more demand, and increased their order, but then found by now (September) the yields wont support that, so they've revised it down.
  5. I tend to agree, I genuinely think cutting production targets could be down to stretching some of the silicon too far. Demand wont be the issue.
  6. UPDATE: Per GamesIndustry.biz article, Sony is denying the rumour. Summary Sony has apparently cut production target of the PS5 by 4 million units due to yield problems with the SOC (System On Chip, i.e AMD's CPU and GPU). Quotes Please note, original article is from the Japanese Bloomberg, hence the reference to Japanese release dates and pricing. My thoughts The yield issue is interesting. We know the PS5 includes fewer CUs in the graphics unit compared to Microsoft's Series X, but clocks much higher to make up for this. This yield problem
  7. I'm not as sure. Think about a commuter train or subway for example. How many people take out their phone and pair some Bluetooth headphones. Someone could ride the train for a few hours and hack several phones with a perfectly legitimate reason for being there in close proximity. I guess it really depends what they can do with whatever access this vulnerability gives them. Written from my Nokia 8 with Bluetooth turned off and a headphone jack.
  8. They've definitely been playing a bit of a stand off. I feel like Nvidia made their announcement because they knew they had a compelling product, they wanted to get out ahead of the console and AMD announcements (basically all three are AMD in one way or another). and set the price bar comparatively low (obviously I don't think $699 is pocket change). AMD doesn't seem to want to announce RDNA 2 before the consoles, maybe contractual stuff, maybe they don't want to skew perception of the consoles which will make them a lot of money for the next 8 years. And they now will have to con
  9. It's possible, however discless PS5 offers them much more in terms of future revenue. There's no used games, every copy is bought through their store or economy. While $50 might seem like the literal price that should be taken off, the discless one is the one that is much more open to subsidizing as they will make more money per game sold on that in the long run.
  10. Oh FUCK OFF WD. This is such a political answer. Like an "Aha, but we worded it like this." What the hell is the problem just labelling the drives as what they are. 5400rpm, 7200rpm, SMR, CMR. I bought two 4tb WD RED Drives last year then had to go through all the worry of checking if they were SMR when that story broke. I just bought a 14tb Elements drive about a month ago after a couple of weeks of research making sure I wasn't going to accidentally buy an SMR drive and now this. Sure 7200rpm instead of 5400rpm, it's not as big a deal as SMR, but the point
  11. Paying for online is stupid. You pay for the console to play the game You pay for your own internet connection The game you're playing, say EA's Battlefield, has to pay for their servers What part of that does the Gold subscription benefit. Nobody. It's just an arbitrary "we'll let the packets through" charge. I'd have felt different if Gold was used to host servers for games so that they wouldn't get the plug pulled on them or something, but there's literally nothing Microsoft was doing in that chain that warranted the money. Phil Spencer is really
  12. I'm also on board with the theory that Sony having their hand in the TV market is one of the reasons the PS4 Pro was made. It so clearly cannot handle 4k, but it can do 1800p and upscale just enough, but it lets them slap 4k as a sales number which in turn helps them sell TVs. I cannot imagine for the life of me, any Nintendo title that would benefit from 4k. Their party piece is that this is a viable gaming console in your hands.
  13. If posting about the cheapest phone, it's worth including the price GSM arena estimates ~120 euros, so that's about £108 GBP, $142 USD or $186 CAD.
