Kotaku: Meet The Guy Who Got The Xbox One Early

Before Monday, André Weingarten figured he was out of luck. A devoted Xbox user from day one—he replaced two red-ringed 360s—Weingarten didn't have a preorder down for the newest console. Then, lo and behold, Target had them in stock online. And then, incredibly, Weingarten had an Xbox One on his doorstep four days later...

Target you S.O.B's. Why him? I guess I never pre-ordered anything from you, but you got some good advertising from this.

Now lets say I pre-order a PS4 from you tonight, can you make a similar mistake? Just to keep things balanced, know what ah mean.

I tried to preorder a PS4 from the style and they didn't do those. They on it did day one first come first serve. Oh well. Had to go somewhere else.

its funny cause his the first guy to get banned on the X1 and on the next gen consoles

Mr Pumblechook3611d ago

I think it's very wrong of Microsoft to block the un boxing video claiming copyright. For the videos that displayed ui I get, but what copyright do they have over the box?!

Resident Evil 1996 - 2023 - A Look at some Resident Evil games and how the visuals improved

CG writes: In this video we take a look at the original 1996 release of Capcom’s Resident Evil on the PSOne, then go through most of the more popular games in the long-running series.

Quite amazing how in late 90s those pre-rendered static backgrounds were like the bees knees. I am wondering what a game would look like today if it used the same pre-rendered backgrounds. Are we looking at photo-realistic environments or is there no need when you have games like UNRECORD using UE5?
