    Not too sure what happened to me during this weeks recording :blush:

    Just for my sanity the 360 isnt x86 architecture it's Power PC I was thinking about the new Xbox which is rumoured to also be x86.

    Also Patrice [-]Evra[/-] :facepalm: Desilets moved to THQ (not Take Two) before being bought back by Ubisoft.

    That is all.

    I promise ill connect my brain to my mouth next month
    (or perhaps just drink less...:D)

    Another great podcast gents! I liked the introduction of sound effects too :thumbsup:

    The PS4 announcement is great news for everyone; gamers finally get new console hardware long after the current consoles needed replacing (I can't play the Xbox 360 anymore because of the never ending jaggies and low res textures) whilst for PC gamers, it may force IBM, Nvidia and AMD to release new hardware rather than small iterations of current designs. As for Watch Dogs in the Sony conference, that was being played on a PC ;)

    Speaking of Nvidia, why do they charge £1000 (or $1100 AUD/$1000 USD) for the Titan GPU? Simply because they can! Nvidia make cheaper cards that in SLI mode - that's two or more connected GPU's inside a PC for the non-tech - will push out more frames per second. The Titan is the most powerful single GPU card currently available however as a long time Nvidia owner, I don't see the value in the Titan when cheaper alternatives for ultra high frame rates are available from both Nvidia and AMD. Refer to AnandTech's Titan review for more info.

    SimCity has caused a lot of interesting posts here and elsewhere on the internet; Rock Paper Shotgun ran quite an extensive range of stories about the never ending cock-ups by Maxis and EA since the failed launch including the fact the servers do little to nothing and one can change a line of code to run the game offline: List of SimCity stories on Rock, Paper, Shotgun

    To poor Leon who had to endure Aliens: CM as Ash said to Ripley in Alien 'you have my sympathies'

    Finally, the best quote of the 2013 podcasts: 'steal it' :laugh:

    Thanks for the feedback guys! Leon had a bit of a shocker on this one ;)

    He'll get his own back in the near future I'm sure.
