IGN is known for it's "bribe taking" reviews. They are the death of gaming journalism.
But how does that effect HB?
Nope. The games would still sell for exactly the same price, creators would get more but they would very likely keep the prices the same. Why change them?
The first game was marketed as the best looking racer with flashy bullshots etc. It turned out to be such a disappointment. I'm worried about this one.
it's a major problem in PC gaming in general. most games can be picked up cheaper in physical form especially if you compare the prices to Steam. the problem is in the digital market place the big players see them self as having no real competition for their market, so there is no real competition.
so the problem here isn't on digital stay at an inflated price it does on just about every store front and platform, the problem is they chose not to release a physical copy of the game that could be distributed outside of their own store.
Or maybe they've got a lot of spare inventory to shift with the serious slow down in VR sales this year!
Think they're going to be in it for the long haul though, they can't have expected VR to have been a huge industry immediately. Triple-A game development alone can take five years, so just to get the best content was always going to take a while.
57C at idle is still 57C unless AMD have created a new temperature scale.
The rated temps came from the previous version of the Ryzen Master app which reported a 20degree offset on the 95W 'X' chips.
So that 57C idle is actually 37C according to AMD. The reporting is changing soon (now?) to take that into account.
