It's called short selling. They're counting on the value dropping so that they can buy it at a cheaper price than they've pre-sold it for.

Saw Prey 2 at Eurogamer Expo 2011 and wasn't particularly impressed. This looks better.

This Xmas holiday I'll be playing The Division and Dishonored 2 for certain. I'm aiming to return to The Witcher 3, Fallout 4, Rise Of The Tomb Raider and Divinity: Original Sin as well and possibly Dying Light: The Following.

How about a quick port review before the initial release? How is the PC performance?
MerseyMal Avatar

Works great on my PC with mostly High settings and a couple of Very High and Medium settings. GTX 780 Ti/i7 6700K. Still a couple of updates behind on my graphics drivers but happy with performance without them.

It's a no from me for the time being. Besides not having the spare cash for a HTC Vive or OR plus a graphics card upgrade, I remain unconvinced that this will be anything more than a niche product at this time.

£576 is without sales tax/VAT.


£576 + 20% VAT = £691.00

Actually it includes local sales tax. Valve just don't bother removing it before converting to GBP, instead they make a direct conversion of the US retail price.


This way they get to keep the difference and we get to pay more tax as a result of an inflated pre-VAT price.


Yay for unfair pricing. :D

Windows 10 makes you reinstall Windows 7 when you upgrade your motherboardWindows 10 makes you reinstall Windows 7 when you upgrade your motherboard

AFAIK the big update due next month allows you to activate Windows 10 with a Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 Product Key. Hopefully this will make the above easier too.Reply

Correct, the Fall Update (which is due out in November) will indeed let you use your Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 key to activate Windows 10. If one is in need of changing motherboard right now, then just keep using the non-activated Windows until then.

I'm still not convinced that it'll be anything more than a gimmick.Reply

You haven't tried it I can tell, I have yet to see anyone that had not see one in their future. It's amazing.

£119.99 on Amazon apparently. Not sure about the lack of the numpad though.Reply

My Corsair mechanical keyboard doesn't have a numpad - and I really don't miss it.

Installed the new Nvidia graphics drivers for this game and left the launcher open overnight so it would unlock ready for a quick session before work. Came downstairs to find that the launcher wasn't open any more.


Booted up the launcher again and got "Grand Theft Auto V Launcher has stopped working" and this happens every time I try to open it.


Saw there was a problem for some people caused by the username which they log into their PCs with. Tried loading it after logging in with a alphanumeric only username account with full admin rights and the same thing happens.


Guess I'll have to try uninstalling and reinstalling the whole damn 60GB of files again to this PC.

You might have the steam launcher version problem. You could try getting the social club launcher.


It has a problem switching from laptop integrated to nvidia drivers for me. I have to disable the nvidia ones till i launch the game.


Currently playing on a 60" screen via the laptop, and Ive been stuck on this damn freeway for the last 30 minutes.
