Re: Going to make an interesting documentary some day

New Tiger Woods documentary airing on 11/29/20 on ESPN. Clips seem to be about his racial identity, as in he denied being black? ESPN announced Thursday that its Undefeated vertical will be releasing a one-hour documentary on Woods to air Nov. 29. Titled “Tiger Woods: America’s Son,” the film will, ...

Re: Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5

I was in there with you Wilk. I had my ReCaptcha app in operation and my Auto-Refresh Chrome extension set for 3 sec, as I was on the website's Series X store page. It showed stock available, but by the time I clicked on the "Add to Cart" button, it came up and said "This item is temporarily out of...

Re: Kicking The Tires On A New TV...Advice Needed

HDMI 2.1 firmware to support 120hz was released a few weeks ago for the X900H. Still waiting on the VRR firmware though. HDMI 2.1 support seems to be in a poor state at the moment. It was announced in 2017 and the support is still spotty and among gear that has 2.1, the support for features are sha...

Re: The Beautiful Game, Fútbol, Calcio, Footie Season 20/21.

A lot of the fondness for Maradonna seems to come from his legend as kind of an outlaw. It's not that he just cheated on maybe the most famous goal of his career but his days at Napoli, hanging out with shady underworld figures. He had a great club career but imagine with today's training regimens, ...

I thought all games were installed to take advantage of the speed of the SSD.

City are pressing to equalize after an early goal by the Spurs but big counter for 2-0 lead by Tottenham. If you watched Amazon Prime All or Nothing series on Tottenham, they showed clips of the City at Tottenham match last season and you could really see the intensity, all the players were running ...

Re: Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5

Apple has money to commit billions more to the supply chain, to sell 75 million iPhones a quarter. Sony and MS are shooting for maybe 10 million each in the first quarter or two of launch. Margins are crazy on iPhones so they have an incentive to ramp up volumes whereas console BOM cost is close to ...

Re: Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5

So will there be consoles at retailers on Nov 10th outside of pre-orders? I might be just missing it, but I am not finding much info. As said earlier, it seems launches anymore are a pain in the ass. Near as I can tell, no. Retailers are barely getting enough to do pre-orders officially. It's a wei...

Re: Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5

If Sony wanted me to won a PS5, they should not have made it 19 inches tall. It literally will not fit on my TV stand. Which is insane considering what I and everybody wondered about the Series X when it was revealed, like how would THAT fit under my TV. I'm getting closer and closer to wanting Ser...

Who are you guys picking during the Finals? I'm hoping the Heat win, a storybook season and a helluva coaching job by Coach Spo but they are going against two of the most elite players in the NBA in Bron and Davis. I hope i'm wrong but I see LA in 6-7 winning the series. It's 2020 so of course the ...

Re: Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5

No doubt I can't wait for true 4K gaming, faster load times, etc. But my disappointment at not snagging an X yesterday is tempered by the fact the launch lineup for the X/S is lukewarm, at best. The lineup through the end of the year isn't interesting either, just the usual multiplatform franchises...

Re: Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5

I think it's always been the case that the Playstation brand is stronger outside the US than Xbox. Other than US and UK, Xbox isn't as strong. It is just judging by the amount comments on Eurogamer.net where you'll typically find a 3-1 amount of interest in the Playstation. Although that amount see...

Sounds like the big push will be the monthly plan. So if you play a lot of MS first-party games or the EA games, that might be all you need. I don't know if binging games is quite the same as Netflix though. GamePass has way more than just first-party MS games, as you probably know. No, didn't know...

Guardiola. Also as that article noted, the owners of City also apparently have interest in the NY MLS team so it may be a twofer type of deal.
