Is there any more info on how family sharing will work?
example. I add my friends Tom and Bob to be in my “family”. I know both so I don’t mind sharing games, but Tom and Bob don’t know each-other. Since they are both in my “family” do they have to be in each-other’s “family”?
I don’t get this from Microsoft. Especially for Europe. With the same currency, same content rating system, and with the free movement of goods between EU countries, purchasing from other countries is really common.
Microsoft is giving 180 or so countries away to Sony. I have a day one edition pre-ordered, but since I live in Cyprus I am forced to cancel :( I guess I will have to use the PS4 for my next ten gaming.
Its not one or the other, the ipad 4 and nexus 10 both have high res screens with great performance and great battery in thin and light designs.
No, amazon will charge your card 24 hours before the item ships, you can cancel at any time before that, and if the item price drops at any time after you placed your order, then amazon will charge you the lowest price.
well I think faster, with better buttery life, while getting thinner and lighter are the improvements we all want from new hardware.
I would also like to see:
higher resolution screen, ideally QHD
bigger storage capacity (or smaller Windows footprint, especially for RT)
speakers at the front
I remember playing pitfall for hours
This looks like an interesting experiment from Google, but does it have real world implementation?
How many people and what size area can a balloon cover? Will it require millions of balloons? Imagine the logistics to keep them all in place.
Also, isn’t helium in short supply?

The trailer shows her getting ink done.
She already has the tattoos in mirror’s edge, so this could be a prequel.

I’m not a fan of MMOs mostly because I cant put in the time.
I log in one weekend and I’m even with my group. I log in the following weekend and all in the group are now experts while I’m still a noob.
and yet, they agreed to be the setting for “The Internship”

Actually no. The legal name of the company is still Research In Motion Ltd. but the company does business as BlackBerry (no Ltd.)
Shareholders will vote for an official name change to BlackBerry Ltd. at the company’s 2013 AGM. So legally RIM will be around until July.

Support for PS3 and Xbox 360 will continue for a few years, especially for the big franchises who sell millions of copies. Developers and publishers wont want to restrict their sales to the relatively small market share of the new consoles.
Other than a potential price drop after the new hardware is out, there is no reason not to get a new console now.
For about $100 you can probably get 10-12 games, out of a selection of 300+ great (something like 8/10 and up) games for each console. If you haven’t played any (or many) games yet, then you will find a great selection to suit your taste.
To be true to the series, the 3 day scenario should be like this:
Day 1: FTL jumps and crazy space battles with Cylons.
Day 2: Realize that the budget is gone on the effects of day 1, spend the rest of the day in political debates.
Day 3: leave many stories and subplots unanswered and at the final moment show that this was God’s plan all along.

for anything at that size I prefer a laptop design (ie all the components under the keyboard)
I would rather get a 7-8in surface.
My first computer was a Macintosh LC with system 6 and I remember drawing in Kid Pix, and playing Sim City (I needed to turn the colors down to 16 from 256 for the game to work) and Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?
The way the keyboard is set up makes an interesting design for a laptop. The rest not so much.
The 180 flip is something no one uses. Folding over is nice, but its too big to be held, so it will only be useful on a table, instead of the way it shows at around 2:00, that will cause the screen to fold as soon as you press
what about a clay jug with XXX written on the side?
Oh, but it is…
GDDR5 is the graphics version of DDR3, it has higher bandwidth but also higher latency. Its better for GPUs but the CPU could safer from it.
CPU isn’t much of a problem when playing games, but for Microsoft’s “3 OS into 1”approach, with concurrent processes DDR3 is better suited.
Also Microsoft compensates for the graphics disadvantage by adding 32MB of embedded SRAM (that may not sound like much but its plenty) that can bring the Xbox One’s memory bandwidth at the same level as the PS4.
So can you explain to me why GDDR5 is so much better than DDR3 for an APU?
I mean a real reason, not that than 5>3 therefore its better.
Kids corner sets the maximum volume to 19, probably to protect children’s hearing, that’s too low for me especially in cases like when I’m working out and I want the music blasting.
Its not the same as the new consoles, its not only about the back catalogue.
Most new releases on steam only work on Windows, if Valve manages to convince developers to support Linux then maybe steambox will have a chance, otherwise steam on Windows will be a better option.

$99 Xbox Lite
Shrink the die to 32nm reducing the power requirements and the physical chip size and pack it in a box the size of Apple TV.
Updated to the same UI as Xbox One with features such as improved smartglass support, new version of IE etc..
Marketed as a DMR that also plays all xbox, xbox arcade, and xbox indy games.
Really? What do you mean by just fine? Current titles at mid to low settings? What will happen with next year’s titles?
My estimates are based on a recent build a friend and I did for an HDTV connected PC with specs that will last for 3-4 years. I dont remember the exact prices for each component, but a basic break down is:
Case and Power supply 100
SSD and Hard Drive 200
Wireless Receiver for Xbox 360 controller 15
So that’s about $1000 just for the computer, without screen or sound system because an HDTV would be used for that. A Windows 7 license was reused from an old PC, and he already had a mouse, keyboard and an Xbox controller.
If you need to buy these as well then add 300 for a monitor, 100 for speakers, 150 for Windows, 150 for gaming mouse and keyboard, and 40 for the controller.
So if we add these up then about $1755 will give you a top gaming experience superior to consoles.
oops, this was a reply to Sorto
The true breakthrough is that fish swim away when you get near them ;)
Even for an entry PC you already spend 600 more than a console. So saving 15 per game will get you even after 40 purchases. At about 10 games per year you will be even at the same time your PC will need replacing.
