So, how 'bout that PS4?

What;s that rectangular thing in the middle? It's kinda of an ugly controller(although, all is forgiven if it has great ergonomics).

I have a Halo XBOX360 and was wondering whether there was any benefit in upgrading it to the latest version of the 360 for Halo 4. Wikipedia doesn't state if the newer versions are actually more powerful or just more efficient.

All for less than $200 shipped in a case that I was able to model on CAD software, and then design all the holes that needed to be cut out and such. I also designed the lettering on the front and back of the unit.

Thanks for B1o2r3i4s5 for doing all of the actual building of the units and custom control board, and pretty much everything else!

 

That is great work. You guys should have started a thread in the DIY forum about it if you haven't already. The Anime thread seems to have taken on a life of its own.

No sense in upgrading now to another 360. The PS4 was just announced, and the xbox 720 is on its way. I'd hold off for a while

Sorry to disappoint you, but it basically has to do with a (fairly misunderstood) sport I love to watch and follow with a passion rather than a manga.

Thanks for the explanation. Then you should definitely read the manga Coq de Combat, as it starts off in the world of Combat Karaté then evolves towards free fight and is just great. It is nothing like Gaston Lagaffe though :)

I'm your man about xboxes. wink.gif I have a bunch of them.

Do you have a Halo 3 "phat" xbox, I'm assuming? If so, you might want to look into some extra cooling. That's a second gen console that still uses 90nm CPU and GPU, and is prone to the "red ring of death" due to components overheating over long periods of time.

Upgrading to a new xbox won't improve game performance at all. And in fact, because they integrated both the CPU and GPU into a single die on the slims, they run hotter than the late model phat units.

 

Thanks, I don't actually know if there's a DIY thread about it or not. If not, I'll let Borisu make that thread. But if you want any more information, there's a link to a rather lengthy post in my signature with more information about everything.

Those are beautiful :)

 

Lay those down on the table cafe side and they'll bring you plenty of conversation and perhaps complimentary drinks.

This is awesome. Changes the perspective of what can be done. I wanted to put one of these on my faceplates but never thought they could do it. Apparently UM has a new high def laser machine, so they should be able to do it too...

So I woke up to an avalanche of angry nerd tweets on the PS4. That's a good thing right?

~the 4/2ch of head-fi as you always say. 

Past few days I haven't been spending most of the day on head-fi. Looks like fellow animu thread members have become more active here as well gs1000.gif

Well I'm sick with tons o mucus in my throat and being congested.

That might be too much lol. Especially since the faceplate is so small. I don't know about UM's machine though, might as well shoot them an email.

Waking up is never a good thing. Oh wait, the ps4 right, still waiting on the actual ps4 to be announced, not its controller. biggrin.gif

Nude fairy! Reported! (j/k) I guess that's a fairy, pixies have dragonfly wings, and nixies have gills.


That's a touchpad on the PS4 controller. I'm a little underwhelmed by the specs, but have to remember that consoles aren't PCs. Optimization for them is much tighter, and they have to consider the usual lifespan to be 8-10 years, compared to PCs, which are half that or less. I'll wait until the full tech demos to pass judgement.
