As I am a newbie in the gaming world and I am searching for the best platform to enhance my gaming level. One of my closest friends suggested me to buy consoles because it has remarkable digital graphics and other friends are suggesting me to buy a PC because its price is affordable, but I want the best. I searched the online website for more details where I get some solutions. I will be thankful if my query would solve here.

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

              With the huge varieties of Nintendo gaming consoles, making the right choice can be confusing at best.  That said, I am interested in some recommendations for choosing the right one for playing such 80's classics like Donkey Kong, Mario originals, etc.  If possible, I would like for recommended Nintendo gaming consoles to have some classic 80's games, especially Donkey Kong and Mario originals, to either be integrated or come with it.   While I do have a PlayStation 4 gaming console, it is my understanding that I will not be able to play Donkey Kong or Mario on it.  At any rate, if someone could get back with me regarding this question, it will greatly be appreciated.

               Thank you

               George

Blade's Shadow Cloud gaming service ($34.95 /mo) launched in California today:

They claim to deliver the performance of a high end gaming system, through any old computer you have. They also offer a "Box" ($139) that is supposed to deliver the best experience for their service:

This is actually the only way I'll likely be PC gaming anytime soon. Building a rig just isn't in the cards nowadays. Looks like it's the equivalent of a virtual machine with a dedicated GTX card and 12GB of RAM.

I'm gonna need to take this for a test drive.

they've just arrived and on charge.... these were purchased for FPV drone flying, as I already have VR head sets from Oculus and HTC!

So these are NOT VR headsets.

and what I do like, is they can be setup for IPD and can be setup for the correct eyesight +/-... shift like you find on proper bins and scopes!

I am interested in looking for a vouce changer that could effectively make me sound like different low and high pitched humans.

While its originally for a class project I will certainly like to have fun with my friends.

I've heard of a few things but a lot didn't work very well. Currently I only have a phone but I can get a computer eventually.

when I throw a YAMAHA RX-V379 receiver  into the mix and have it like this


{XBOX 1X}<-------->{YAMAHA RX-V379}<------------>{SAMSUNG MU8000 4K TV} I get static and lines on the screen .


If it is configured without  the {YAMAHA RX-V379} like this


{XBOX 1X}<-------->{SAMSUNG MU8000 4K TV} it works fine with no static and not lines on the screen , it is perfect

so I know it is the YAMAHA RX-V379 but how to test or further analyize this issue I am stuck

Hi All,

I am trying to pair my Wii remote to and an nvidia shield.  But I don't know the bluetooth pin.

After reading several articles online it says I need to calculate it based on the MAC address.


The PIN-Code is the binary bluetooth address of the wii remote backwards. Following a short piece of C code to calculate the PIN:

Lets assume the Wiimote has the bluetooth address "00:1E:35:3B:7E:6D". If you want the PIN for bluetooth pairing in a simple string, do the following:

char pin[6];
pin[0] = 0x6D;
pin[1] = 0x7E;
pin[2] = 0x3B;
pin[3] = 0x35;
pin[4] = 0x1E;
pin[5] = 0x00;

Now "pin" contains your bluetooth pin that should be used for pairing your devices.

http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Wiimote#Bluetooth_Pairing

Could someone help me work out what the pin should be?  I've tried several online calculator but suspect I'm doing it wrong.

The MAC addresses for my two Wii controllers are;

00:19:1D:C6:EE:61
00:19:1D:B5:57:89


Many thanks

Some of my friends who I play a different pvp game with have been playing Fortnite a lot lately.

I tried it a few times and was really put off by:
1.) The time to spawn into a solo match, from lobby to airbus, wasn't too bad. But when you end up getting shotgunned by someone a few minutes into the match, while you're holding a pickaxe, a couple of times -- it adds up to a lot of time spent for nothing. No respawn... go through the whole matchmaking process again.
2.) If you play with friends and you die early, you either have to sit through 10-15 minutes of boredom, or split out and go find a solo match.
3.) I really dislike games where the most effective technique to out maneuver someone heads-up, is pogo-stick jumping over and over and over. I get that Fortnite isn't supposed to be hyperrealistic, but still.
4.) Minecraft'ing a wall/fort in the middle of combat is pretty OP. I'd prefer if you could only use the obstacles built into the map for cover.

I haven't played PuBG, but I'm guessing it's more my style.

Otherwise, the graphics and battle royale concept are pretty cool. I'll probably give it another chance, but my initial feeling wasn't very positive.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

           I have a few favorites within Google Chrome on my laptop which I want to transfer over to my Bookmarks of PS4.  With that said, I am wondering if this can possibly be done.  If so, what procedures will be necessary to accomplish this goal?

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

           I can not access any web page within my PS4 gaming console because of the following error message:  The security of the page cannot be confirmed.  The certificate provided by the server is invalid.  Do you want to display the page?  No Yes Display Certificate.  Regardless of any of the three options selected,  there is not an option to fix it.

           Any help given in reply to this question will be greatly appreciated.

           Thank you

Hi,

Does the India specific version of 1 tb XBox One S play all regions BluRay's and DVD's of all regions and can it play 3D BluRay DVD's?

I am asking you this question because in the xbox website, it just mentions that xbox one s can play 4K Ultra Blu Ray DVD's, However, there is no mention about the regions of BluRay supported and Regions of DVD's supported in the xbox website.

Also, does xbox one s support 3d bluray dvd playback of all regions?

Please reply to this question asap.

Thanks for your help and support.

Warm Regards,
Mr. Sriram. K

I'm thinking of buying a used Playstation 4 off Craigslist for my son. I've asked what  “CUH” number it has, to find out how old the unit is. But is there really a difference in terms of the games you can play or the quality of play? (The model for sale is a 500GB unit.)

Thanks!

Customer brought in an Xbox One that is having the strangest issue I've ever seen.  She brought me 4 different controllers, 2 new, 2 old.  All of them will pair (eventually) with the Xbox and work.  But they only work on an average of 2-5 minutes before they lose connection and drop.  Then they will reconnect themselves.  

I can get at least 15 feet away and they still work (if currently working).  A straight USB cable connection to the unit works flawlessly with no issues.

I have reset the console in an attempt to fix this issue, including wiping all settings and signing back into the customers account.  The issue still persists.  Suggestions?

Hi,

I'm looking around for a game console for 2 kids (6 & 8, one loves football, the other is a dancing girl).
So I know there is Nintento Playstation, Microsoft XBox (one, S, 360 ... and even Windows10??? not sure what differences are?) and WII.
Then there is also the Kinect, what I love as an idea.

Have read something about it and saw two games which are great "Just Dance" and "Kinectimals" which look great fun to me.
Also being able to play with multiple persons (whole family or friends) seems great (f.e. dancing or bowling).

Now I think I have to go for the Kinect, so then XBox is my choice (if you do not agree, let me know), I have a spare Windows 10 laptop (Dell E7250) which I could use ... to run these games? Then I might also find them online somewhere (games)?
Then I only need to buy the Kinect and the games. I do already have Netflix and mediaplayer on TV so those features are not needed. Will not play myself any fancy games (I guess, never played before) so what would be the best option here?


Any input welcome!

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

             I have recently purchased a Playstation 4 console with controller.  At this point, I seem to have more questions than answers about it despite of my enjoyment of it.  One important question which I have and confident that someone will be able to answer is the following:  How can I upgrade my browser within PS4?  To be perfectly honest. I am not even sure which browser the PS4 console is using by default.  

             Any feedback regarding the step by step procedures for upgrading the default browser of PS4 will be greatly appreciated.

             Thank you

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

          I will be purchasing a PS4 console with controller this month.  It is my understanding the PS4 controller can be used wireless after being fully charged which brings me to this upcoming question.  Will the wireless PS4 controller cause any interference with my AT&T wireless setup at home used for internet access?

          Thank you

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

            I am wondering how long a controller for a PS4 console will retain its charge.  It is my understanding it will need to be fully charged via standard to micro USB cable when the PS4 console is removed from its box.  I believe the front LED area of the controller will be an amber color when needing to be charged and a blue color when fully charged.   However, I was unclear about the time duration for the retention of the charge.

            Thank you

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

           As an extension to my previously closed questions regarding Playstation 4 consoles, I am wondering if they support playback of DVD and Bluray media or disk.  I will be purchasing a PS4 this month and wish to harness all of it features and potential.  

           Thank you

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

          I am interested in purchasing a PS4 console with a controller which brings me to the purpose of this post.   When selecting a PS4 console with controller, what exactly should I be looking for with respect to features.  Are all PS4 consoles the same?  The games I am purchasing the PS4 console for are PacMan https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-us/games/arcade-game-series-pac-man/cid=UP0700-CUSA03955_00-PACMAN0000000000  , Eight Ball Deluxe https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-us/games/addons/eight-ball-deluxe/cid=UP2058-CUSA00081_00-TABPACKPS4000053  , and Cyclone https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-us/games/addons/pinball-arcade-cyclone/cid=UP2058-CUSA00081_00-TABPACKPS4000036.  I hope these are full version games because the requested online purchase amount does seem low.  

          With respect to budget, I would like to purchase a PS4 console with controller within the price range of $250 to $300.  It seems like the average price is $300 based upon the ones reviewed on ebay and amazon.  

          Any feedback given in reply to this question will be greatly appreciated.

          Thank you
