GamingThread Epic Games calls PS5 "a masterpiece of systems design" in interview with Official PlayStation Magazine
Reason User Banned (1 week): Console warring
What is annoying is everyone ignoring the laws of physics, the market trends, and basic logic just because Cerny on his completely BS deep dive talk aimed to spread misdirection to the masses happened. I've been also saying this before, but he knew exactly what he was saying with his carefully chosen words, Sony knew exactly what they were doing by marketing the conference on twitter and other consumer facing channels and they both knew exactly what they were doing when they pretended that was a developer level talk that consumers were not supposed to see. And it worked, the entire internet eat their BS all up. This is the only reason why we are even arguing that a small gpu overclocked at almost the breaking point is efficient, despite them throwing away the cost advantage they had by having a much smaller gpu, despite the numerous reports on bad yields and constant minor revisions trying to get them up, up to the last possible minute, despite the console ended up being a juggernaut bigger than anyone could have anticipated, despite the narrative that Sony being a hardware company was able to match Ms performance at way smaller sizes. This is what's annoying, you guys tripping over your own narratives over and over, for something that makes no lick of sense, that there's hundreds of evidence of being wrong, just because the company you liked told you to do so.

Reason User Banned (1 day): Misinformation about a member of the forum
His track record is far from perfect though. In 2017 he said that Xbox wouldn't have any extra funding, that we should expect things to be the status quo like they were just let the ship slowly sink. This lead to another false claim: That in that year Ms was making no new partnership with 3rd parties (something that Phil debunked a few months later saying that they did signed some stuff in 2017, but haven't show yet) I even remember calling him out on that one because there was no possible way he could've know that. This also led to the false claim that: Playground's action rpg game wouldn't be published by Ms. Then a few months ago all the reports showed that Ms was behind the growth of the second studio and even when they were bought all the interviews they made say Ms was in for their 2nd game right from the start. And I also remember a few days later from his claim Gobo studio announced a partnership with Ms. Turned out to be a turd f2p forza mobile game, but still was a new partnership when he said there wasn't none. He also hinted a lot that Halo Wars 2 bombed, only to have a few months later that the game was actually very successfully digitally, something that also disproves another claim he made a lot on the old forum: That he had sales data for win store and that they were so abysmal that Ms was spinning data as hard as they could regarding some mildly impressive PC users engagement (IIRC that the first play anywhere releases were seeing 30% of sales and user engagement on Pc) ----- My point with all that? We should never take a insider's opinion as gospel, just because we don't know the extent of what they know or how up to date that info is. Because even with a pretty good track record there will be some missed stuff. That's one thing I like how Klobrille handles his leaks at least. He always explains the extent of how he got this info, so you know that the possibility exists but may not come from fruition. I wish more insiders were like that instead of trying to paint as they are the ones to know it all. If he indeed knew Lockhart was canceled a whole 6 months or more ago good for his sources, thought I think there was some reports that Ms talked about Lockhart at gdc this year? ( Genuine question I don't remember if they were supposed to talk, or if they had talked about it).
