Re: First PC with 8 Rome 2
Seems it wil use 7
Login screen but no Ebay
Your email/user ID or password is incorrect.
And no it isn't
Hmm the chair by the PC is a bit hard, but for console I sit on a comfy sofa with my feet up.
That does help with console.
Re: "Sony wasn't forgetting its older-platform customers"
It already runs BSD oh wait
The Linux install was a bit useless unfortunately. I was just going to try it when that software update came out and the boys updated
Re: Why the downvotes for LarsG ....
Forsa - see Driveclub
Ryse - see quick time events, looks good but a bit boring. A lost opportunity
Would rather do Infamous (have played them)
I set up a rule a year ago.
I would buy a next gen console when a Naughty Dog or Guerilla Games game is on it.
So I am OK. One boy likes racing games and the other Assassins Creed
So launch for us.

Re: Won't get fooled again
I always thought it was odd how the Mods followed The Who, quite a bit different to their usual stuff.
Back in the last revival in the early 80s Mods were everywhere, but the rock fans used to take the piss out of their scooters.
Only thing is the rock fans usually loved NWOBHM and 70s heavy rock, but also liked the heavier Who songs. Common transport for rock fans then were Jap motorcycles.
Re: Thank fuck
Well I have a few, boys not bothered but like rock music, just let them play Minecraft and they are happy.
Daughter likes Florence and the Machine, but used to be Two Door Cinema Club mad, but she never went beyond a poster, CDs T Shirt and seeing them live.
She HATES no direction!
Hmm perhaps some prosecution
I think a few no direction fans should be prosecuted for their threats, well if it is suitable for some people perhaps a few of these morons should be done.
Re: Wait, hear that?
So why does WIn 7 not allow full screen DOS?
Therefore some of us still need XP
Re: If I don't need ...
Still not as a good as a good RWD car.
I have seen Rover 800s struggling
Re: 12 seconds!!!!
Accelerate - more than you think.
My car is around the 8 second mark depending on fuel, best on Shell or BP super stuff, worst on Tesco with LPG in between. But on decent petrol with recent fuel trim reset sub 8 is easy.
As I mainly use LPG, I can afford to boot it!
However the 50 to 90 acceleration is more usefull.
Anything over 10 feels a bit slow.
About 8 is always nice.
Re: It also isn't ugly!
That is what I thought, you don't look like a twat.
I have managed to go from watching every race to not even knowing who won a race.
Started this just after I saw the results on BBC news home page and it was not yet broadcast, and my complaint was brushed over.
I WAS going to get another LNB for RTL but instead I lost interest, very good for sport that, fans losing interest.
Re: But why?
An HDMI input, I suppose it could be used for a PS4.
Actually HDMI shortage is a little worry for me. Will have to move a (SD) PVR from HDMI to RGB Scart.
Audio is more of a worry lack of sockets on my amp.
Well since a PS4 launch game is from their biggest games studios - no point MS bothering.
Sony need SOME competition
To keep them honest - PS2 and PS3 were both esoteric architectures, PS3 really sorted out the programmers as you had to be able to code multithreaded.
If the 360 had not provided such opposition would we have ended up with such a good PS4?
It is not games I am worried about as the PS2 era had some fantastic ones, but features and prices.
BTW I have my preorder, and it is for the console made by the same company as my current console, my hand held, my video camera and my TV. And Sony had to earn these.
Video Camera - HDV, so Canon or Sony, Found a HC9 at an affordable price.
TV, W series so no contest
Handheld, Uncharted or Mario, I'm a grown up!
Re: 'epic adventure acted by americans with their perfect white teeth and bronze tans'
No but I watched the original series a couple of years ago on an ITV channel
Re: Stop mucking abaat...
Servilan did nothing for me.
I prefered Jenna Stannis / Sally Knyvette, Cally / Jan Chappell, and of course Soolin / Glynis Barber
I liked Pushing Daisies, another series which required TBPTV due to shITV removing episodes
It is NOT full of irritating Yanks I will have a look when it hits TPB
Actually if you pay for Fartville it could cost substantially more than what you pay to play a proper game, even a new AAA console game.
I used the AAA console for the price - easy £40.
Not much I expect
Re: The phone will...
Do they have any washing machines left to drop on people?
The headline worried me....
Until I saw it was only about the tech company and not the main ingredient in cider
Re: I wondered why the ads had changed
I liked him in Fifth Element and Unbreakable.
And 58 is not old.
I am only 50 but feel like a lot of years younger.
Re: A few details:
What about chip shops?
Now that would get rid of them in a usefull way.
Re: Absurd opinion alert
I thought Helen was at home with Michael?
Naughty Dog will be writing games for it.
Re: Too late for me
Actually I am going to mention the other big thing which helped.
Seing Bungie at the PS meeting where the PS4 was announced.
As a PS owner the games I have most wanted to try are Bungie ones.
Why the Killzone hate? Are you ISA Scum?
I have never understood the hate towards the series, I have played all 4 games, and they are fun.
I will be buying Mercenary and Shadow Fall.
They have a good back story. The so called villians (they are not villians of course*) are great. The games always look fantastic, and the multiplayers require skill. What is surprising is that the multiplayers for 2 (released 2009) and 3 (released 2011) are still very busy.
What we do find though is that CoD players usually do terribly , they cannot get used to the heaviness of the controls, that reactions are no match for experience, and that jumping up and down makes you look stupid.
KZ3 is in the top 5 best graphics on a console for this generation (TLOU or UC3 is best).
The weapons are usaully well balanced, even the LMGs can be used to good effect. And you can of course use the famous Chunky Gun.
All hail the Chunky Gun
* How can they be villians with such voices as Ray Winstone, Sean Pertwee, Malcolm McDowell, Christopher Fairbank, Richard Ridings, and of course Brian Cox.
Re: Meh AC 09/08/2013 20:18 GMT
Play good games such as Gravity Rush, Unit 13, Uncharted Golden Abbyss, and Killzone Mercenary
Lots of racing games have local multiplayer, eg the Motorstorm series, Modnation Racers, LBP Karting.
All 4 user.
For this generation it is possible for two people to play Uncharted 3 multiplayer online from the same console.
Re: Bugger the lot of them
OK then I will be getting Killzone Shadowfall.
Will it play that?
Will it play the next Halo from MS?
Some of us like the console games. Some of us like slobbing out on the settee. After spending all day coding getting away from a PC is nice.
Re: So nothing is really changing for xbox and needing a gold account
If this means we will be getting more games servers I do not mind, PSN+ free games are worth it, I joined to get a few just over a month ago. (ICO & LBP Karting)
I told my wife I had joined PS+.
Then she saw the free games, asled how much and was gobsmacked at £4 a month.
Currently playing Spec Ops the Line before the Survivor play through of TLOU
Re: I don't get it
Or a life size cut out of Steve Balmer.
Re: Content is King.
I loved TLOU, but I am also a big Uncharted fan
Re: Content is King. - game studios
OK Name them, I am sure Sony have more owned studios than anyone else.
However Naughty Dog must be worth 3 or 4 of any others.
Re: Power Brick
That is because MS is more a software company (but their KB and mice were good), however it is designed to be quiet.
Sony are more a hardware company so know what they are doing hardware wise.
Re: @But Kinect 2 is far more powerful than anything the PS4 has in that space
Move is pretty effective, much better for shooters as well. Compare the main PS3 shooters such as Killzone 3 or Portal 2 with say Blackwater.
Why would I want Kinnect?
Still prefer the name Project Natal as I prefered Nintendo Revolution.
I like slobbing out on a settee to play games.
PS4 is better value as it is a bit more powerful and £80 less
I am wary of them. But they helped me.
But I always have a balance.
£20 with £2 fees approx is still better than receiving nothing.
Just need to price your sales to cover Ebay and Paypal
I find them expensive in fees but reasonable in disputes (idiot customer).
The idiot bought by mistake, so I cancelled transaction to get my final value fees back, she said no leaving me with fees, then she tried to claim back the whole amount from paypal (including the fees I would have to pay), I called paypal, they rejected her claim.
She was shocked, a month later I refunded -20p for the unrefundable paypay fee, the final value fee for Ebay (over a pound) and a little extra due to paypal calculations, I was not out of pocket, or in pocket, she lost nearly £2 just by being arsy.
Re: So I can pay by paypal
I keep getting people paypal me money and using the card is an easy way of using it, Gives me a second bank account in a way as I can use it funds permitting even if my main account is OD.
Some of these little Ebay and web based part time things can get you a few hundred a month!
Re: Stupid punishment
I was busy!
OK 6 months then - still disproportionate
Who actually cares about the bribes?
All the defence companies do it. They have to in that regaion.
Bribe them or no sale.
Lots of jobs and money - so I actually do not care about the bribery.
