  • DerekLoffin posted a message in the forum topic #Gamergate - Leaked emails of Jimmy Wales (wikipedia). on the System Wars board

    I got another set of articles to post (which may or may not have been posted already, but I didn't see them). This time it is an in depth critic of Anita's position. It's a very clean read for thos...

  • DerekLoffin posted a message in the forum topic #Gamergate - Leaked emails of Jimmy Wales (wikipedia). on the System Wars board

    Going to put this here. It is what I consider a really good piece, not just for the article but the comments as well. Together they give a really good notion I think of where the more moderates of b...

  • DerekLoffin posted a message in the forum topic Analyst: Sony Might Come To Dominate Consoles Exclusively. on the System Wars board

    Well, I don't think it is likely myself, but using PS2 as the comparison misses some important bits. Nintendo was still doing fair in the pre-PS2 era, and had a power advantage in the PS2 era. Like...

    Far too many people involved on either side of this GG thing are pretty much degenerates. I can't take either side seriously until they clean up their acts, which I don't expect to happen.

  • DerekLoffin posted a message in the forum topic Tech Report's results for PC hardware survey, revealed. on the System Wars board

    This proves nothing. All it shows is some numbers for visitors to one specific website that happened to take the survey. Steam survey certainly isn't bullet proof by any means, but this survey does ...

  • DerekLoffin posted a message in the forum topic So what's the argument against backwards compatibility?. on the System Wars board

    For PS4, PSone compatibility really hasn't got much of an excuse. You don't need extra hardware, you just need the emulator which is basically already out there. PS2 is a bit nastier, but to my und...

  • DerekLoffin posted a message in the forum topic Intel: "There are 711 million PC gamers in the world today". on the System Wars board

    Yeah, that is a totally useless number as if it was anything even approaching that with actual gaming PCs, steam's counts would be MUCH MUCH higher as pretty much any PC gamer who actually has anythi...

  • DerekLoffin posted a message in the forum topic Can X1 close the sales gap between itself and ps4?. on the System Wars board

    Is it impossible, no. Is it at all likely, also no. PS3 made up the gap because it was actually out selling 360 WW. So far, XB1 is well behind WW, and in all the major territories. It also doesn'...

    As many people in the comments already pointed out, the comparison is stilted due to sun position change. Even when the author claims they are in the same place, they clearly aren't when you look at ...

    For those bringing up MOBA as the name, the author brings up all the names, including MOBA in the prolog so that's a misguided criticism.The more important criticism is the complete lack of actually b...
