Comment Re:Has Nintendo not heard of smartphones? (Score 1) 144

Except that there's only room for one device in your pocket, so which is it going to be?

My underpants has this extrapocket in the front which is empty so I'll just put it there.

Maybe it's not even pocketable? That would solve your issues. The Lynx, GameGear (and see how they sold ..) but yes, the GameBoy too wheren't pocketable and that worked well anyway.

Personally I don't have a smartphone or a tablet (those aren't pocketable either.)

If I were given the choice of an iPad or a similair but more gamey Nintendo NX for the same price (not entirely impossible?) then I'd pick the Nintendo NX.
VS a cheaper tablet maybe not. Then again I still don't have that damn $400-500 tablet to watch my comic books which I buy in bundles because I think that's way too much for watching comic books. $400 for a gaming system isn't necessarily too much though I've got a shit-ton of games on Steam and wouldn't want to have full-price titles (though I'd be totally fine with having Nintendo titles!)

If it was smartphone sized and worked like that too, which I guess isn't the perfect form factor for gaming and unlikely (?) then I would had picked a Nintendo NX phone over another Android phone with similar specs and price any day too because .. it would say Nintendo and it would run Mario games!

Because the /. story is written by someone who don't know how CS:GO work and make up how he think it works.
There are only weapon skins in CS:GO. There is nothing else.

Why just make shit up on the spot? (Then again there is in TF2 and maybe there are TF2 gambling sites too? I don't know why there couldn't be, because there are no pro scene for TF2 right now?)

The CS:GO skins doesn't let you change the look of your character (except for the weapon) and no other items than the weapon. CS:GO skins are weapons (with stickers) only.

Team Fortress 2 mean-while let you change other parts of your character beyond weapons.

Also Team Fortress 2 alternative weapons / skins / items may actually change how the weapon work. In CS:GO it's all just cosmetic and doesn't influence game-play at all.

An affordable video card is totally capable of outputting 4k

So where are those sub-$100 Pascal-based videocards?

This is Intel Atom:

"Intel says its new chips can play 4K videos at 60 frames per second when theyâ(TM)re encoded at up to 250 Mbps bitrates. 1080p videos can play at up to 240 frames per second."

No need to buy a graphics card at all for 4K playback.
