    @Lulu_Lulu: The Shield is still available, it's running a Tegra 4 so it's still one of the most powerful SoC's out there. If you want one just buy one. It doesn't need a follow up.

    @tendoboy1984: No I don't, but those features are optional and I have no real problem with them existing. With Facebook owning Oculus (and their SDK) I can't guarantee they aren't data mining anyone u...

  • barrybarryk posted a message in the forum topic Why do shooters not lag on console. on the Games Discussion board.

    Blacks Ops 2 runs at a stable 60 fps on PS3 because that's exactly how they wanted it to run. A stable, high framerate is much more important for shooters. It's also why it's nowhere near 1080p on ...
