  1. Microsoft's Phil Spencer sent this email to his team:
  2. I'll start it off for you: DON'T... MAKE... HER... ANGRY...
  3. I'd imagine certainly too much lag for Racing or FPS games. Using Steam in-home streaming has been too laggy for most of the games I've tried, over a wired gigabit LAN with 1-2 hops. A recent Microsoft demo showing FH4 'streaming' has been called out as faked (or terrible, or both) in YouTube comments saying that the presenters' inputs did not match the screen output. But the question remains why so many large organisations are fighting to capture this market if the experience is going to be that bad? Or does 5G mobile Internet on the horizon change everything?
  4. Source: https://www.engadget.com/2019/03/19/google-streaming-video-games-gdc-2019/ "The company today revealed Stadia, the evolution of its efforts to make digital, on-demand video games reliable and viable. It'll be available this year in the US, Canada, the UK and Europe. Google dropped the news during an hour-long showcase at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. Google's plans for its streaming service bring the industry's "Netflix for games" promises to life. Ideally, it will allow folks to play any game on any connected device -- think Devil May Cry 5 on your iPhone, Dead Cells on your smart TV or Apex Legends on a Mac. Stadia will be able to stream games in 4K, 60FPS and HDR color at launch, but eventually it'll support up to 8K. However, it's also much more than that." PlayStation, Steam Link, nVIDIA and now Microsoft and Google are all about the game streaming hype train! Are you hedging any bets as to what the future of gaming holds? And will you be a part of it?
  5. Maybe it's time to organise some more game to play online with everyone here. Just a tad hard for me here with the time difference.
  6. Rumours are creating a lot of discussions around what was previously codenamed an upcoming Xbox One Maverick console. A new name and preorder date have surfaced. Meet the new Xbox One S All-Digital Edition: While we can't 100% confirm this name is final, players have been quick to abbreviate it this SAD console and jeer Microsoft's marketing department for this seeming oversight. Preorders for this console are anticipated to begin in April 2019. No information about specs is available at this time, but we assume it will be very similar to existing Xbox One S hardware, perhaps with revised cooling and obviously no optical drive. Perhaps the in-built storage specifications are increased significantly to allow more simultaneous game installations. But then again, perhaps a justification against this is that owners of this console will be more likely to stream their games rather than purchase and install them. This would allow for the SAD Box to be sold cheaper. But will you need a console at all? Microsoft has been talking about making it's Cloud Game Streaming service available on all sorts of devices, including the Nintendo Switch and even on PlayStation. (I really can't imagine Sony signing up for that). Consoles often have sold at slim profit margins - it's the games and online services that rake in the money. So if Microsoft can have players using (or just paying for) its services on any devices, there aren't too many reasons left to care about selling consoles. Performance? Servers handle the performance of rendering streamed games. What about PCs? It sure has been nice to be able to play Forza Motorsport 7 and Forza Horizon 3 + 4 on my PC, even without an active Xbox Live Gold subscription. But I fear this may not last. A new 'fast-ring' preview build of Windows 10 has been revealed to support playing Xbox Game disc images natively, with Microsoft providing one game to these beta users for free and encouraging them to try playing the game and reporting feedback. This seems to suggest that future versions of Windows 10 will be able to play any Xbox 1 game. But when that happens, I wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft requires these PC players to have Xbox Live Gold. While fast gaming PCs may cost more to build, part of this is significantly offset by having free multiplayer and cheaper games. This being true in the future seems uncertain. Forza titles are only sold on PC through the Microsoft store, and at a very high price compared to what Steam customers may be used to. If you own one of these games on disc, there is no way to claim a digital copy on PC. The only saving grace is that the game can be purchased once for both PC and Xbox hardware, and with free multiplayer to boot. What about you? If you already own an Xbox One S or X edition, the new SAD edition won't offer much for you. If you don't, would you consider this as an option this late in the product lifecycle? Would you instead wait and see if a newer faster Xbox is released in a year or two? Have you tried any game streaming services before? What were your impressions? I've had bad experiences streaming Steam games over my wired LAN, so as a fan of racing games where quick reflexes (and minimal frame delays) are key, the prospect of streaming over the Internet doesn't seem like it will ever be viable for me.
  7. Yep I know. All of our existing members here wouldn't need to use any of these if we don't want duplicate accounts either I presume.
  8. I'll add a vote of 3 that I might consider but I usually prefer (even seek out) to use a separate account for each website.
  9. Thanks for posting all of the content. I don't think I've played this since before the gator rush update came out last October.
  10. Someone using the lite theme probably won't notice that. So if there's a way for the forum to override that CSS behaviour it would be useful.
