  1. I think the three of them have free rein to make whatever they like with Amazon. See James' cooking show(which was quite amusing) and that god-awful shipwrecked thing Richard did.
  2. My nephew has a PS5 and he has an external drive with a load of games on it which seems to have died. The drive was originally used in a PS4 if that makes any difference. I got a message from his mum asking if his all his GTA cars & minecraft worlds would be lost. I replied saying I thought that stuff would be on the PS itself, and he shouldn’t have lost anything as he’d be able to download the games again from the store. Am I correct? To have games on an external drive they’d have to be digital copies right? I’m also assuming he doesn’t have PS+ so no cloud saves. His saves will be on the PS5 ssd right?
  3. Given the amount of chat in the FS thread about downloading, patching & content packs it seems like the perfect game to stream.
  4. I thought they added it in the recent update when it became available for all in the browser. Edit: They didn’t, they talked about using it to allow new games on old xboxes. Interestingly Flight Simulator isn’t available on xcloud yet.
  5. I had another go with this last night and after a quick go on that being a cloud game the graphics were nice and clear and the input seemed responsive so thought I’d try Forza Horizon again. What a difference! I was able to navigate around some corners without fishtailing into oblivion. I splashed out on a Ferrari and spent 45 mins cruising around the map and even completed some events. The encoding in this really struggles once you get any decent speed up though. Driving slowly it looks ok, but speed up a bit and it quickly turns into a blocky mess which is a shame.
  6. This feels like it would be perfect for streaming with all the patching and content packs installed, only it's not available on xcloud.
  7. Thinking of getting this for my son after I got the Lego minecraft type one and it didn't really click. I assume after the opening you're free to just mess about in the city? Does it run ok on Switch? That would probably be my preferred platform although its currently full price there (£49.99!!!) vs £11.99 on the Playstation Store.
  8. I don't think they ever said they'd replaced everything with Series X hardware did they? Certain games are probably enabled on the X hardware and fall back to the old hardware when all the X slots are used. Again an issue which will improve over time I hope. They really need to work on the image quality though, even when the input lag is acceptable it still looks a blurry pixelated mess.
  9. What are they suggesting? That PlayStation games will be on Netflix? Netflix doing games has been announced hasn’t it? Isn’t this them just supporting the controllers that people have in their homes?
  10. The porting is because Stadia runs on Googles OS and so doesn't have the DirectX graphics library. I'd agree with you on XCloud, but I think that's more to do with Google's better encoding performance and likely just more devices closer to users than MS currently have. I hope XCloud gets close to Stadia performance soon though as the game selection there is good.
  11. So recently there was a Google Game Developers Summit with a fair bit of interesting stuff announced. The biggest being that people no longer need to port their app specifically to Stadia. It looks like they've got native support in Unreal & Unity, and to help with custom engines it looks like they've built a DirectX to Vulcan translation layer so developers don't have to do this themselves. There was also a load of stuff about better revenue splits on sales, and how pro games now get a cut of the pro subscription revenue based on player engagement (I assume this is like Spotify, where the big games rake in the vast majority of cash leaving the scraps for everyone else).
  12. A good rule of thumb for ribs is the 3-2-1 method. Smoke for 3 hours, wrap with some liquid for 2 hours, unwrap, sauce up & smoke for 1 hour. Ideally by the end of the wrapped stage the ribs should be tender and soft, the last hour is mostly to set the sauce. Do you remove the membrane on the ribs before cooking?
  13. Is this the E3 but not at E3 thing? Or is that something else?
