Back on topic, anyone who is able to get into beta, we're on Garland server.

Where the fucking 4d graphics guys? Where's my groundbreaking visuals?

Um... MGS4, Killzone 2, Uncharted 2, FFXIII was pretty boss too.

Where the hell did my secondary OS go?

Removed cause only a handful of people used it and mainly because it was an easy avenue into modding the console.

Sony made a bunch of fucking retarded promises and offers, most of which they've since not provided, some of which they've pulled completely. For fucks sake, how the hell come half the PS3 users around the world do not get backwards compatibility with PS2?

Because the majority of people in the world didn't buy the console for backward's compatibility - most people already have a PS2. And to be honest, the games don't upscale to HD worth a damn anyway. If they didn't axe the actual hardware compatibility, you probably wouldn't have seen a price drop or the remodelled slim. As far as the software emulation some models have - I don't see why its not a feature on all models if it truly is entirely software driven. Either way, more people have PS2's than PS3's - so it's something of a moot point.

Nintendo did it with wii-> gamecube. Xbox 360 plays (most) xbox titles, and has a shitton up for sale on their network. Where's my massive PS2 library of games, Sony (though I am using an original 60 gig model)?

To be fair, almost nobody still owns a GC if they had one to begin with. Also, the SNES and Turbo-16 aren't exactly retailer available anymore. XBLA does have an impressive showing of games, but PSN is catching up. Remember they didn't get into the online service field till well over a year after the 360 launched, and XBL was already a mature service then. There are quite a few PS2 games available on the PSN now, and now that they have PS+, I expect to see quite a few more. You may want to think about the fact that they are selling PS2 digital download titles on PSN, having backwards compatibility is kind of counterproductive to that business model. ^_~

This generation of consoles was pretty (cept the wii, which was....innovative), but fuck was it an abysmal showing overall.

Sorry going to have to disagree with you completely there. This generation not only brought us firmly into HD for gaming, but also made online components a staple of software. Sure it introduced the nickle and dime'ing of DLC but there were more innovations made than you give Sony and MS credit for. Console mechanical failures aside (every hardware generation has them... anyone remember the original PS flip trick?) I think this was a very good generation with alot of lessons learned.

But yeah, FFXIV on PS3 and not on the 360, it's not cuz sony got it that I'm happy, it's cuz MS didn't that I'm happy. I really hate MS as a video game company.

Honestly, at this point, the game would run better on the 360 because of the larger video RAM, I still have no clue how they're going to port it to PS3 without stripping the engine down dramatically. While MS may have missed out because of their XBL restrictions, Sony is going the same way with PS+. Anyway, I don't quite "get" your angst against MS - outside of the RROD debaucle, I think they've had the best showing of content of all three consoles so far, and a much more robust online service. Sony has always been arrogant, and it took them 3 years of shooting themselves in the foot between the PS3 at launch and the joke that was the PSPGo, but they are persistent and they are narrowing the gap.

Hm, your vidcard is below recommended spec but you should be able to run the updater. Ok, if your able to hop on AIM I can try to talk you through it. This is a very easily resolved bug. Can reach me as TenchiNoRyujin.

Lol, its not a couple hundred pages, it's about 100 or so posts with most people naming the error and not trying any of the user suggested solutions. I had the same problem with trying to run it on my laptop. I was able to fix it by updating my video drivers, Direct X, and changing the memory and engine clock speed on the GPU with AMD GPU Tool.  I may be able to troubleshoot it for you. What vidcard are you using, and what OS?

If you are getting the same error trying to run the benchmark as you are the updater, it's an error with the GPU memory and GPU engine clock speeds. A simple overclock or underclock can fix it. If your running an NVIDIA card, I'm not sure what the issue is outside of updating your drivers.

What is the error you guys are getting?
787  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: FFXIV Thread on: July 12, 2010, 11:56:31 PM

Here's hoping they have better design sense and class sensibility in XIV. I really hate the fact that after all this time they still don't have a grasp of many of these jobs. I'm still scratching my head at some of the SMN additions (shitty BPs and a <2% MP conserve proc) and DRK faux pas ( 2 TP per elemental spell!? 1 TP per Dark magic). It seems like they're not really trying too much with XI anymore, which is sad considering it's legacy. It doesn't build confidence for XIV for sure.

Wow, what a difference a few weeks and a dynamic lighting overhaul can do.
792  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: FFXIV Thread on: July 02, 2010, 05:30:40 AM
I wouldn't be in too much of a rush to get into beta. The cap is being set at level 30, which is reachable within 3-4 days of playtime if they open the servers 24/7 like they plan to. Especially since were limited to the immediate areas around Limsa Lominsa, you will get bored well before retail. Right now current alpha testers are the only ones going into beta, but the plan was that once the new servers are stabilized with this population, more invites will be going out. Though at this time it is unlikely there will be an open beta, the vast majority of people who applied for beta should get invites eventually. Hell, alot of alpha testers who got invited were applicants for PS3 beta, and were told to participate in PC beta till then.

We had 10 servers open at the end of alpha with about 5k testers each, and they had indicated they wanted to expand it to 10k or more through the beta. Be patient and keep your eyes on your inbox, we just got notification that the beta client would be available soon, but no word yet on when we start. If they an get the client out this weekend, probably after the 4th.

Once we have permission from SE we will be having some content up on the site from the beta.

Heh, well they did more than just speed up combat, they completely nixed the effect gauge and redid how stats allocate too. I love how much better the game looks with the new lighting. Seems they updated some textures too. I'm going to be cautiously optimistic because this is the first time SE has actually listened to player feedback and acted on it, instead of their legacy of silence and "deal with it" attitude.
