@  AKA Superman : (23 December 2014 - 11:29 AM) I do believe that's what he means, Kal. Steam has allowed users to stream their Steam games since earlier this year in May to any computer logged into the same Steam account on the same home network.
@  AKA Superman : (23 December 2014 - 11:30 AM) ...the host computer (main rig) renders the game and streams it across the network to another computer of considerably lower specs. The next step in this, according to Steam, is mobile streaming to remote computers on different networks and (possibly) phones/tablets.
@  AKA Superman : (23 December 2014 - 11:35 AM) I created a thread about it back in May. Check it out here: http://www.hdtvarcad...for-the-masses/
@  KaliniuS : (23 December 2014 - 11:54 AM) Cool! I never looked into that but sounds practical and neat
@  KaliniuS : (23 December 2014 - 11:54 AM) I haven't been into PC gaming for over a decade.
@  Brandino : (23 December 2014 - 06:16 PM) PC gaming is so much better then consoles now I dunno if I can go back
@  Brandino : (23 December 2014 - 06:16 PM) I don't have the new consoles, but every port is way better on PC and way more customization and mods and the fact that I get the games for 5 dollars on steam is great
@  KaliniuS : (23 December 2014 - 08:00 PM) Those are good arguments, Brandino but PCs still require a certain amount of proper configuration and can get expensive to stay on top of the latest tech.
@  KaliniuS : (23 December 2014 - 08:01 PM) Hopefully all Windows 10 owners will basically have an Xbox One console through the Xbox app. It seems like that may be the case since Microsoft is hiring to develop their own game streaming service.
@  KaliniuS : (23 December 2014 - 08:02 PM) Plus, there are still some exclusives on Xbox One that you can't get on PC... and I NEED those exclusives lol
@  KaliniuS : (23 December 2014 - 08:03 PM) Speaking of which, the classic arcade port of Killer Instinct on Xbox One is getting an update tonight that adds online play and other modes.
@  Brandino : (24 December 2014 - 02:07 PM) I put together my pc about 5 years ago... still runs every game at max settings and my final price tag was roughly 600....  it's not like the old pc days
@  KaliniuS : (25 December 2014 - 01:07 PM) Still, $600 is about $250 more than an Xbox One lol
@  SpaceInsomniac : (25 December 2014 - 01:13 PM) Merry Christmas HDTV Arcade!
@  d2_s : (26 December 2014 - 06:27 AM) Belated Merry Xmas everyone! Does everyone else feel like they're about to explode from all the eating?
@  colonel_j2020 : (26 December 2014 - 08:40 AM) Ugh, I'm still full from brunch yesterday.  Merry Christmas All!  I'm also totally with Brandino.  PCs are much cheaper to build nowadays and has access to so much and games can be had for far cheaper.  It may cost a bit more initially but since I haven't bought any console stuff I have spent less money.  It doesn't work for everyone, but works just fine for me.
@  AKA Superman : (26 December 2014 - 08:16 PM) Looks like both Sony AND Microsoft gave everyone a present this year in the form of a hacked/down server. My friend's kid got a PS4 with downloadable games and has yet to be able to play any game on it...I let him borrow some of mine.
@  AKA Superman : (26 December 2014 - 08:18 PM) ...another friend got an Xbox One and has yet to play it because it requires a system update that he can't download.
@  AKA Superman : (26 December 2014 - 08:20 PM) Speaking of XB1, I helped a buddy setup his that he got for his son since he doesn't have an internet connection. I don't know if anyone else had similar issues, but that was the biggest pain in the ass I've ever had with a console. Started at 5pm and at 11pm, it was only at 43% complete...
@  SpaceInsomniac : (26 December 2014 - 08:58 PM) Superman, Live and PSN were not down due to Sony or Microsoft, they were down because of denial of service attacks.  Someone is breaking the law.  Go arrest them!

New Destiny footage was just released. If you're in the US, you can get a free beta code for pre-ordering, but the beta doesn't go live until this summer. Codes are supposed to be limited, which is likely a load of BS to get you to pre-order the...

In case you guys didn't know. Uncharted 4's gameplay was shown at Playstation experience. Check out the footage. It looks amazing. Love the detail on the environments. Gunplay looks similar to past games with some new mechanics thrown in.
