It’s been a little while since I wrote a “daily links” article. I decided that I’d slightly rebrand it to Nathan’s Newsdesk since it leaves me more open to posting them on a more sporadic schedule. It’s more or less going to be the same format though.
“because PSVR2 is designed to deliver a truly next-generation VR experience”.
When are game companies going to realize that adding marketing spin to your laziness isn’t going to please the hardcore gaming market? Backwards compatibility needs to be a focus for Sony and not through PSPlus, through support for hardware, and software! Anything else is pure laziness and excuses in my opinion.
“Elaborating further, Nishino claimed the new elements of the PVSR2 hardware – inside-out tracking and eye-tracking, 3D audio, a 4K HDR display, and its controller with adaptive triggers and haptic feedback – meant “developing games for PSVR2 requires a whole different approach than the original PSVR.”
So the hardware being more advanced than the prior generation stops you from making it work with older games how so?
“At YouTube, we’re focused on helping brands connect with audiences around the world, and we’re always testing new ways to surface ads that enhance the viewer experience. We ran a small experiment globally that served multiple ads in an ad pod when viewers watched longer videos on connected TVs.”
I love how YouTube just does very stupid things under the guise of an “experiment” and then act like it makes no sense when nobody likes it.
” The company is replacing both brand names for low-end laptop chips in favor of the simpler (if not exactly creative) “Intel Processor” badge starting in 2023.”
While this isn’t a huge deal I think having a specific branding to a chip is better. Not everybody who has devices with a Pentium are novice computer users, sometimes if you’ve got a PC that serves one function around the house you can get away with a Pentium. I just think telling me specifics is better than vague nonsense.
I don’t have any crazy commentary on this one, I just think upscaling AI is really cool.
