Oculus Rift is more exciting to me than any of the announced features of either console.
If either decide to support Oculus Rift then that will be my choice otherwise it looks like I will end up leaving consoles for PC gaming.
Re: Wonder where
I went to BT when Sky announced they were buying BE if that is what you are on about?
Also I don't see how Sky paying to use Virgin's services is the same as the company being (part) owned by News International?
Does anybody use jif's any more?
I thought people used p'nungs instead these days because they can be higher resolutions than jifs and still have the transparent backgrounds?

Where is Kevin Bacon when you need him?
I'm waiting for 8.11 myself. Its bound to be the best version

"please send a bank check made out for five million dollars payable to Robert Edward Ito"
If it has a payee and a value on it then its not a blank cheque.

"Computers in the future may weigh no more than 1.5 tons - Popular Mechanics, 1949"
This one is correct though... my computer weighs less than 1.5 tons
Re: What sort am I ?
I think I am mostly in number 3... I watched something on ITV player this weekend and about half way through the 3rd ad break I started thinking that I should download the next episode illegally to avoid the pointless adverts for things I will never buy.
Re: lets get this straight
If you already have BT broadband you will be able to watch it online or via an android/apple app.
If you already have BT broadband and Sky box and valid viewing card (you do not need a subscription) then you can watch it through the sky box after registering with BT.
If you really want to you can pay for their telly service and get it that way.
I will be going for via an Android app with a HDMI cable connecting my phone to the TV.
Re: and motogp
I'm actually happy about the MotoGP...
I refuse to pay for Sky so have had to put up with the BBC coverage and them moving it to the red button or online if anything else happens at the same time.
BT Sport have promised to show all the races, qualifying and practice as well as programs about MotoGP when there aren't any races, I can't help feeling if the BBC had offered this they may have kept the contract.
If telephones are working still could they use an old 56k modem and dial up to an international phone number to get online or would the phone system spot this and redirect the traffic?
Re: Optional accessories?
NASA's last autonomous vehicle came with a deadly laser, why can't this one?
Who else has left already?
I left BE as soon as the take over was announced.
BT Infinity has been good so far and I'm not giving any money to Murdock.
Re: Dozen eggs for a euro?
@ Ivan 4
The line we are replying too when we say we get 6 for £1 would be "You can't even get half dozen for £1 anymore over here."
Re: Dozen eggs for a euro?
Yes you can... I drive past a farm on the way to work every morning selling eggs at £1 for 6
I signed up to my latest contract in March on their "Orange" brand rather than "EE" because I didn't want to spend an extra £10/month to get the same tariff on 4G instead of 3G. The phone I choose (Note 2) is available with 4G so that wasn't a deciding factor.
If they want to get the sales figures up to 1 Million by the end of the year as EE they should match the prices of their other brands.
Re: Stop Press
Wouldn't the average length of day over the whole globe be about 12 hours?
Re: We already have a system that you pay more the more you drive...
"How many 92 year olds do you know that drive?"
The old lady whose car I crashed into last summer was 92.
Re: Vote with the old wallet, theyll learn (probably)
"I really, really hope that the new xbox doesnt pull something like this, as is rumoured. They wouldnt be that stupid, would they?"
You mean like needing to be connected to Xbox Live to play Arcade games if you had to get a new console after the old one had the rrod?
It is also re-supplied regularly from earth which won't be an option when you are half way to Mars.
Why would you name a moon after a car?
Re: We'd better send another sattelite...
Surely we have to send some space marines to investigate first?
I never see anything good in the BBC comments just "This comment was removed because the moderators found it broke the house rules."
Re: Block smut & violence
I guess they mean the cat videos?
Can't be anything else
Don't worry, they have already sold it abroad so the IMEI block wouldn't matter.
Unless they change their game pad design I'm still not interested.
I hate getting "Playstation Thumb"
Re: To be honest...
Where do you live?
I want to buy horsemeat as it is tasty but I've never seen it for sale in the UK. I always bring some back with me when I go on holiday in France.
Re: I see what they did here
Perhaps the Thursday before Christmas was a bit late to be looking...
I ordered a Nexus 7 from the Google play store on Friday 14th and I arrived the following Monday
From my experience everybody I know with an Android phone knows it is an android phone and has chosen it because it is better for them than an iPhone.
If you are stupid enough to install an app from a spam text message being on PAYG would actually be better... once your credit has ran out your phone will stop sending spam messages. If you are on contract you wont notice until the end of the month when a huge bill has built up and your network wont refund you because you accepted the terms when you installed the app.
Now can they release Netflix for the 3DS here in blighty?
Its been available in the States for ages but we seem to have been forgotten.
Re: British engine, so why
I thought the example is to extract funding from the ESA... Its not like they would care how long it takes from London
