Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

             I am interested in locating and purchasing an Atari joystick with integrated classic games especially Donkey Kong Classic, the 1981 version.  It is my understanding that such gaming systems are out there and will interface with the television set.  That said, could someone help me out with respect to locating an Atari system with joystick and Donkey Kong 1981 built into it?

              Thank you

C++ 11 Fundamentals

This course will introduce you to C++ 11 and teach you about syntax fundamentals.

I must be missing something simple.  I had a customer bring in an Xbox One S that the Blu-Ray Drive would not read discs.  I first attempted to swap the laser, but this did not repair it.  So, I ordered the complete optical drive.  I have swapped out the daughter boards (soldering) and installed the drive in the console.  It now reads DVD's, but it does not read or at least attempt to load the Xbox One game I have.  Suggestions?

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

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.

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.

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,

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 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

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

           I am wondering where I can go to download Kings of Steel pinball game for PS4.   I was lucky to find Eight Ball Deluxe pinball game at https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-us/games/addons/eight-ball-deluxe/cid=UP2058-CUSA00081_00-TABPACKPS4000053.  Like Kings of Steel pinball game, it is another 80's classic.  At any rate, if someone could provide a lead for downloading Kings of Steel pinball game for PS4, it will be greatly appreciated.

           Thank you

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

             I will be purchasing a PS4 gaming console with controllers this month.  I will be starting at ground zero, meaning, I be a beginner starting with nothing with respect to knowledge of configuring and setting it up.  However, I have run across some classic PS4 games which I would like to purchase from the playstation store.  One is PacMan located at https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-us/games/arcade-game-series-pac-man/cid=UP0700-CUSA03955_00-PACMAN0000000000 and the other is Eight Ball Deluxe located at https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-us/games/addons/eight-ball-deluxe/cid=UP2058-CUSA00081_00-TABPACKPS4000053.   There is an option to add each one of these to a shopping cart for purchasing which leads me into this question.  How can I transfer any online purchased PS4 game to my PS4 gaming console when it arrives?

             Thank you

I'm officially at my wit's end here.  I have a customer who is a Veteran, and the only game he wants to play is Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag on PS3.  He brought in his PS3 because the game freezes almost every time at the LOADING screen when the bar gets all the way across.  Here is a list of what we have attempted to repair this issue.  Oh, and yes, he has been able to play this game before.

HIS PS3 SLIM
1.  Disassembled and clean Laser LENS.
2.  Cleaned Disc.
3.  Repaired HDD.
4.  Backed up data, installed used 250GB HDD, installed PS3 Software 4.81, and restored data.
5.  Deleted update file to Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and redownloaded.
6.  Deleted saved game data
7.  Used 2nd Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag disc.

So, in an attempt to figure this out because I told him it's either the disc or his system, he brought in another Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Disc for PS3 and a used PS3 Slim that he purchased at GameStop.  Like I said, he REALLY likes this game. So...

NEW PS3 SLIM (NEW to him)
1.  Transferred data using ethernet cable from OLD PS3 to NEW PS3.
2.  Formatted system and created new user.
3.  Kept system from hooking up to internet to download update.
4.  Updated game software with no saved game data or user account.

PLEASE HELP! (Image of hair on ground after pulled out)
