    Windows 11 Will Soon Block All Default Browser Workarounds

    You can make the same (accusations) about all of the other browsers. And Firefox has had it's share of nasty 0-days. Edge is fine. People like being in the 'cool club' and jump on every bandwagon that passes by.

    Nvidia’s GeForce Now has been quietly capping its founders’ frame rates

    The more I think about it, the more it sounds like bullshit. But, having never used a streaming game service, I have a few questions: Can you go into the game settings and adjust anything? Any settings for the visual quality? Because if you can, obviously it could impact FPS. But I think my...

    Nvidia’s GeForce Now has been quietly capping its founders’ frame rates

    Tiered performance makes sense. That might not be what they are doing if you can't still buy the cheaper one. But having a few levels of price/performance is logical.

    BestBuy dropped PS5's today, pretty good quantity, and Totaltech was NOT needed. There's a chance GPU's might drop any moment

    Windows 11 Will Soon Block All Default Browser Workarounds

    Non-issue. It's only links that the OS itself is pointing you to, like when you click help-about or help. "OMG I'M GOING TO MAC!" "OMG I am SO GLAD I went to MAC!" "Linux4ever!" *throwing a tantrum* "YOU CAN'T MAKE ME!" Click-baity article has succeeded.

    Retailers Paywall Consoles, GPU's, Black Friday Deals Behind Expensive Annual Passes

    Well, I know bestbuy isn't paywalling GPU's because a few weeks ago I was able to cart one and get to the final confirm screen and it never said I had to buy their Totaltech. So other than the ridiculous prices at some retailers (MicroCenter, Newegg), who is actually paywalling GPU's?

    Players found cheating in Call of Duty games may now find themselves banned from the entire franchise, including all previous games and future titles

    For free to play you are absolutely correct. But for games costing $60, that's a lot to throw away over and over. Cheating should be reduced. Only thing I am worried about is that they just may not be able to detect all cheating. I think a lot of hacks hook into the video output, and never...

    List of Games Affected by DRM Issue in 12th Gen Intel Core Processors

    Of course it sucks, but shit happens. You might buy a game for $60 but it's release is delayed by 3 months. You might buy a game for $60 and it's not available in your language until a month after launch. You might buy a game for $60 that has some critical bug not discovered until launch day...

    List of Games Affected by DRM Issue in 12th Gen Intel Core Processors

    All affected games use the same DRM system, Denuvo? So 1 company has to patch its DRM, then each game just has to patch it out. Sounds like it's not that big of a deal to me. Give it a month, patch will be out for anything that's anything. I can't play Fishing World Sim, oh no!

    Sony has formed the ‘PlayStation PC’ label for its PC games push.

    PC Gaming is still not a "minority of gamers". Those numbers don't tell the whole story. How many games were given away on Epic for free, how many bought on sale? The number of sales is probably the same or higher vs console sales. Regardless, it's definitely not a "minority". The mobile...

    (Finally read the rest of the thread) You know, lots of arguments about hardware and pc vs console.. Sony will make games for pc, I assume this mostly means, porting their console exclusive games to pc. Ok, great. But. Are there even any Playstation exclusive games I will care to play...

    Minority??? LOL. There were 650 million pc gamers as of 2020, data from one of the JR Peddle reports. How many Xbox X have been sold? 8 million as of October 2021, so 10 extra months compared to the PC numbers. Playstation 4, 113.9 million, so lets just say 114 million. Thing about consoles...

    If I don't think it's real, I am going to comment and say exactly that. A light news day doesn't justify 'fake news'. That's what you get with MLID/AdoredTV. If you enjoy that type of entertainment, you can always go to those websites/youtube pages. [H] has never been about fake tech...

    It got leaked, I agree this is bad. But this will force them to change it enough that it cannot be hacked or made use of by nefarious 3rd parties. 3rd party government? They can already get into your stuff if they want, they don't need a video game to get in. Point: your information isn't...

    Amazon’s New World game is bricking GeForce RTX 3090 graphics cards

    EVGA Said it was about 2 dozen cards, that it was a bad solder job on a small batch, and that they were all advance RMA'd without the usual upfront deposit. They probably know the serial number range of affected 3090's. This is why we love EVGA. EVGA FTW.
