    Official PS5 Thread

    Memory runs hot which was expected. GN is turning into a channel that just does videos to complain now. I’d prefer the channel more if they did more stress testing with the griping. Does the PS5 melt in a closed entertainment center? What’s the memory temp in those ambient temps and is it...

    It will stand vertical without the sides, even less stable though, and ugly as hell. I’d be happy it’s the PS5 was even larger to he boxy like a PC, or still curvy but with a flat bottom or even just a better stand. And of course I can’t put it in an entertainment center or it would...

    The panels come off very easily. One company started making replacement plates and they got shutdown by Sony in days :| Not only does the PS5 not sit flat on its own, the stupid “horizontal stand” is too small to prevent it from banging around when a kitten walks across it. I think Sony...

    YouTube will put ads on non-partner videos but won’t pay the creators

    From YouTube’s perspective this is pretty smart. When a non partner channel goes viral, they will manually review the video and channel real quick, then slap ads on the viral video for that sweet revenue. Plus YT is continually working on tools to automatically identify improper channels. The...

    Netflix raises prices on standard and premium plans

    What’s going to push me over the edge for Netflix is them charging an extra $5 a month to get 4K HDR streams. I feel like we are past that point where that should not be available in the normal tier.

    Marvel's Avengers

    The single player campaign is decent if you like the Avengers, but it’s hard to root for the non-movie and non-comic book knock off Avenger models they used for the game. For multiplayer they took one of the most diverse and well known fantasy universes to make a game about punching robots and...

    Xbox series X

    My Series X from Target got delivered yesterday. After redoing my home entertainment center a bit, I am super happy with it. I like the new controller a lot, setup was really slick the the XBox mobile app, tons of GamePass content... Its a bit of a miracle these things are only $500 for a 8...

    10% more performance on Zen 3 with 4 sticks of ram?! - G Nexus

    This was common knowledge, but GN like to create 25 minutes videos to regurgitate known facts. Or they make a video just to declare everyone else is wrong over pedantic issues, or complain about RGB. This is one of the worst videos GN has put out. I easily figured out 2x16 dual rank sticks was...

    Epic Games Sues Apple

    Took three months, however Epic finally figured out they should give people VBucks to replace what they purchased on iOS: Good move to get this figured out before the PS5 and XBox Series X|S launch.

    PNY RTX 3070 / 3090 In-Stock @ CDW (Warning, overpriced)

    The animated fan is spinning in the wrong direction in that page. I can’t get over it, it’s like manufacturers try as hard as they can to make their custom software terrible.

    Declaring both the Series X|S and PS5 will be available at the exact same time is a great way to to crash a website. Bold move Walmart. Though since it’s Walmart.com, they messed it up anyway. The text says both 11/10 and 11/12 within the same ad...

    Godfall

    I’ll likely buy this game shortly after release. I like decent 3rd person action game and Godfall has difficultly settings so I won’t get halfway through the game, get pissed, and never play it again.

    Billy Mitchell Has His Guiness Book Of World Record Scores Reinstated.

    Doesn’t explain the fact Billy’s own video evidence shows he played on an emulator for at least some of the records. He discredited himself and refuses to acknowledge his score replays behave in a way real arcade hardware never does.

    AMD issues guidelines to retailers to prevent Radeon RX 6000 scalping

    Warehouses are filling up with PS5s and XBox Series S/X consoles. At a minimum, AMD has been able to get their partners cranking out 7nm RDNA2 hardware with GDDR6 memory. Its a hopeful sign they can also get GPU chips produced in large quantities and have fewer stock issues than Nvidia.

    AMD issues guidelines to retailers to prevent Radeon RX 6000 scalping

    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master won't power on - (temporary) solution

    Jensen Huang: Ampere shortages to last throughout the end of 2020

    I had to wait multiple weeks to get the 2070 I wanted after those launched. I don’t think it’s uncommon for a new GPU product to be selling out extremely quickly.

    Microsoft Game Pass Ultimate ($150 or less for 3 years - as low as $100)

    So, apparently MOSTLY everyone needs to return their RTX 3080 / 3090 because of "cheap" components. I'm def returning my EVGA 3090.

    The speculation, with zero evidence, is entire product ranges of cards are bad because of a board layout choice. Some may actually be bad with a specific configuration, but it’s the minority(and no EVGA cards). Now anything without “the best” possible layout if deemed poop. This is about the...

    So at various threads so far we've discussed ebay and Amazon 3rd party vendors for RTX 30 series scalper sales but have you ever heard about StockX?

    That site sold 8x 3080 FE cards today for $1400, that’s barely any in terms of the overall market. This site isn’t putting a dent in anything.

    Microsoft Game Pass Ultimate ($150 or less for 3 years - as low as $100)

    I’ve been super happy with Game Pass for PC which was going up to $10/month. So I picked up two years of XBox Live Gold and turned it into Ultimate for $1. Then since I had Game Pass Ultimate, I preordered a Series X. So this “deal” cost me $600 :p;)

    Got one reserved. Fortunately someone from the store handed out slips of paper before the store opened. They were able to quickly figure out who got to the store first by just asking the first person in line.
