    Epic Games Announces More Exclusives and Features

    And just imagine how much more you'd save if it wasn't an exclusive. And both steam and epic directly compete for your dollar. That's what the outrage is about.

    Epic's Tim Sweeney Calls Store Exclusives "Procompetitive"

    After EPIC gets a bigger foothold in the market, I highly doubt they'll be giving devs a better cut of the revenue. They're not competing for you. They're competing to eat up publisher deals for their platform only. You won't see any savings if they're all exclusives.

    Man Who Made Hoax Call In Deadly Swatting Seeks 20-Year Term

    He's 26 fucking years old. He's not remotely close to being a kid. Plus he's been calling in fake threats for years.

    GOG Ends Its Fair Price Package Program

    Anyone want to bet that as soon as EPIC believes they have decent footing in the gaming market they'll change it eg 80/20... I doubt they care who is loyal to who, just look at metro, bribed the publisher in to an exclusive at the last minute.

    Huawei Announces the $2,600 Foldable Mate X Smartphone: It Folds Outwards!

    The screen is going to get scratched to hell. It'll probably require the use of a soft carrying bag. Similar to sunglasses.

    Vox Media Goes After YouTubers That Mocked The Verge PC Build Video

    What a bunch of clowns. Read today that folks were unsubscribing from the Verge, hopefully that trend continues. Paul had a well worded reply as well Edit GN posted on this, calls out Verge/Vox using their own words (about abusing the YT copyright takedown service of all things) against...

    The Division 2 Will Get an Open Beta

    At least they're calling it a beta. Anthem calling theirs a "Demo" didn't go over well with many people.

    Senate, House Bills Aim to Kill $7,500 Electric Vehicle Tax Credit, Add New EV Tax

    Your tribalism is showing. ps "Tax" was used in the article, in case you didn't read it. So your resident leftist didn't put anything in there that wasn't in the source doc.

    PSA: Anthem's Open Demo Is Live until Tomorrow

    It's actually really fun. There are some issues with gaming sessions but the demo is a months old version of the game. One thing they don't have but say they're looking at is adding a FOV slider. Why they didn't have that in their development is beyond me....\ Oh and text chat..

    Metro Review-Bombed: Dev Threatens Next Game Won't Be on PC If Sales Are Low

    Nailed it. This is anti-competitive. EPIC is no better than Steam. It may be $10 cheaper but because of the (probably) bribed exclusivity, you still don't have a choice. Want offline Play? Not at EPIC. On top of the tencent, account issues etc etc. EPIC blew it in my opinion. I...

    Facebook is Building a Space Laser

    Facebook is Building a Space Laser

    Ground based laser in congested southern California airspace. Couldn't have done this anywhere else. "Delta 296, turn right heading 240, maintain 3,000, avoid the Facebook laser, cleared RNAV runway 27 approach"

    Tesla Drastically Increases Supercharger Prices around the World

    I'm also under the impression that electric cars are also (in theory) cheaper to maintain over the thousands of miles. Supposedly it's also to expand the supercharger framework. Investing in more travel flexibility.

    Google Says It Is Discontinuing the Chromecast Audio

    Verizon Is Quietly Testing Its Own Netflix-Style Cloud Gaming Service

    Net neutrality is dead so.... Verizon blocks Netflix. (I bet they really want to. Force their customers to use Verizon Videoz) Remember when Verizon blocked Google wallet? Or when AT&T blocked Apple Facetime

    Ring Reportedly Gave Employees Access to Customer Video Feeds
