This problem is very common in corporations - lack of leadership, direction and determination. Anything which is not an instant success either gets axed, or is successively nerfed until even the most ardent fans give up in disgust and leave. You see it a lot with many of the things Google do, they launch it, it’s not Read more

PCIe 4.0 m.2 maxes out at theoretical 8GB/s, 7 realistically achievable, so well above PS5 internal drive raw specs before considering compression. By the way, I seem to recall there’s already a drive or two announced with raw specs faster than PS5 drive, so they’ll be there. It’s just been a little slow on this front Read more

I don’t know of anyone using UE in an open world type game, there might be some, but it’s probably not the main focus of the engine. UE games do feature some rather large maps though, and this demo showcases that towards the end. So I don’t see the problem here, where is it? Read more

Letters to the editor, classifieds, all of that is curated by the newspaper staff, they decide what to run and what not to. You know what internet platforms are like in comparison, do I even have to explain? No, didn’t think so. Read more

This seems a recklessly fast way to type compared to something like having carrier pigeons deliver individual printing types one at a time (each type ordered by carrier pigeon, of course...)

The big difference is though, that the small town newspaper is run by a professional staff, it’s not completely open for everyone to write and publish whatever they want to. So it’s a totally apples-motorcycles comparison. Plus, small town newspaper, big city newspaper, national magazine and so on, they all have one Read more

I’m not wrong, you are wrong. User-added M.2 drives in PS5 have to exceed the performance of the built-in drive, precisely because they don’t have the kind of acceleration features the internal drive does. So you’ve got it backwards, just go and watch Cerny’s talk on the subject. Read more

Maybe it does matter, if the demo relies on PS5's storage system’s superior capabilities... :P

The PS5 SSD is not comparable to regular NVME SSDs, it has a lot of hardware acceleration features, including hardware decompression of data and more. Go watch Mark Cerny’s PS5 presentation from a couple months ago for a better description of the system’s capabilities.

Saying demos are NEVER representative is overstating it, arguably last year’s Metro Exodus looks way better than the now quite ancient Agni’s Prophecy demo. Read more

It’s a real game, as in it is fully playable according to the news post, but it’s not a real game as it’s not a title in development, but rather only a short demo with a few minutes of gameplay’s worth in it.

Maybe you’re joking, but this is a fully realtime demo, as mentioned. There’s no need for any “buying time” or anything like that. As we see in the demo, this demo does closed spaces and wide open spaces and anything inbetween with equal proficiency.

These are cheap Sony earbuds. Not “cheap Anybrand” earbuds. Sony is a premium marque, and bluetooth earbuds are generally a more premium type of earphone. And also, why are you so worked up over this? lol Just let it go, dude! :)

I watched the pilot episode a few years ago, having read all the hubbub about the show, and found it incredibly stupid, juvenile and quite frankly disgusting. R&M is a concrete example that the collective intelligence of the human species IS diminishing. Read more

No, around 80% of all stocks in Merica are owned by around 30% of the population, something like that. IE, a solid display of the effects of severe income inequality. So those retirement funds and whatnot you’re talking about are 20% of the stocks, spread out over 70% of the population (and mostly just the few top Read more
