Re: Sony... Oh well.

BD can handle all the same codecs as HDDVD, just that it can hold more data, which with a longer film is very important.

Being able to support MPEG2 1440x1080/50i to me is very important.

Home burnt from HDV

Re: First news story for the Playstation 5?

I think the DVD part of HD-DVD was a trick by Toshiba to get it accepted by more people.

Re: Sony... Oh well.

Sony formats

At least have always aimed to be better than the opposition.

But think CD was a huge success.

Beta was better.

Never heard Elcassete or whatever it is called but supposed to be good.

ATRAC was a good audio compression algorithm

BluRay is more future proof than HD-DVD

Sony have developed a lot of good formats.

A Yank CAN be as bad

A game I play, on the forums, a new person posted that they wanted to play the game but there was too much swearing. He asked for the next game to have all swearing removed.

He hated curse words, but did not mind the shooting, the gouging of eyes, the bloodshed ect.

Lets just say he had the piss ripped out of him. Especaily when when he said that he routed his interent via a clean feed system. He was also anti porn and nudity.

Why did he want to play a shooting game?

Aircon

Also important for developers, cannot code when overheating.

Just that I have 3 PCs under my desk (2 working, XP and 7, 98 just sits there), and despite the XP being a celeryon and slow it heats my legs.

My quad core 7 is not as hot.

My old 10 year old home PC P4 I used at work for a while after the last work PC blew up, was much faster than the celeryon, it (celeryon) moved to my desk after its previous user left. it is used for XP tasks.

Re: Oh boy

On consoles - we have erm 14 different ones. None of them will stop playing games due to external reasons. Except of course multiplayers.

The console we have preordered is the same.

Why would I want a console which could lose games?

Being gamer friendly is good business sense

Make it easy to play a game, make it easy to buy and sell, and people will buy you console. Make it diffcult and people will check the competition.

Sony showed really good sense with the PS4, They interviewed the developers, they investigated architectures, they have gone into the next generation with thoughts of the PS1 and PS2 eras.

One final thing, console dominance does not matter as much as you think, because there will be a huge number of games to play - remember PS2 era?

No problem here - no really exciting XB exclusives

Not many XB exclusives I actually want, but this generation ME came, Bioshock came, and latest Bioshock Infinite PS3 is great (Move support).

Now the one XB series I have wanted to try, the publishers have gone multiplatform, so I will get Destiny, on PS4.

First games will be Watch Dogs, Destiny, KZ Shadow Fall, Order 1886. Now how can that go wrong?

And we only went PS3 since we had a PS2

Re: No matter what MS call it

Set it up YEARS ago before I had an ISP. My internet access was VERY naughty. Our ISDN work ISP did not check originating number, so I used that, free internet, but high line rental (paid by work). My boss did too.

Now have ISP account, a hotmail, a work, and personals on my own domains.

The hotmail was the easiest web account to use.
