      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

  1. I agree. I think they will struggle rotating in any XB1 games, unless they somehow convince EA, Activision, Ubisoft or Bethesda to actually participate in the program...
  2. Xbox Live costs a lot less and gives you 4 free games each month. Gamefly is $13.50 a month for 2 games at a time ($10 for 1 game) -- and you can actually get new games. None of these games are new. Most were never $60 games. Did you actually look at the selection of games?
  3. Pretty good list....
  4. I can't see how paying $120/year to play that list of games is a good deal....
  5. Agreed. There is no such thing as "future proofing" a display.
  6. LG 77-inch OLED -- no regrets.
  7. LG 77 Inch OLED -- $15k
  8. On the face of it, there's nothing here that we couldn't have guessed already: when you look at the balance of the PS4 Pro and indeed Project Scorpio, both consoles have been specifically designed to run current-gen game engines at higher resolutions and smoother frame-rates. Both Scorpio and PS4 Pro only offer a 31 per cent uplift in CPU power, while GPU sees a 2.3x boost over base hardware with PS4 Pro, rising to a 4.6x uplift on Scorpio vs Xbox One. The core hardware design of both machines is all about scaling up graphics, not the game simulation. Destiny was shown running 4k60 on a PC with a 1080Ti (80% faster than a 1070) an Intel i7-7700k.
  9. You're recommending a $15k TV?
  10. As an owner of a GTX-1070, I can confirm it is not a 4k60 card for most games. And that is paired with an i7-6700k at 4.4 GHz -- a much faster CPU than Scorpio has.
  11. It is very common for software developers to be required to not comment on a console before it has been formally unveiled. The Scorpio will be unveiled at e3. You likely won't hear any software developer talk details about their Scorpio SKUs until then.
  12. So you made it up? You didn't say "I hope this will be 4k60". There are lots of reasons -- you just won't listen to them.
  13. Right now it's closer to $2k. Black Friday? Maybe...
