F1 2015 Racing onto PS4, Xbox One and PC in June - briefly
(hx) 04:43 AM EDT - Mar,27 2015 - Post a comment
Codemasters has announced that F1 2015 is heading to the PS4, Xbone and PC on June 12th.
Marking the series', and indeed Codemaster's, debut on current-gen platforms, this year's annual F1 title will be racing onto PS4, Xbox One and PC on June 12th. Unlike previous entries which were traditionally released in September just as the championship was coming to a close, this means F1 2015 will coincide with the current F1 season much earlier.

F1 2015 will run on a new version of Codemasters' EGO engine built specifically for the current-gen platforms. Of course, the extra horsepower of the new consoles means you can expect greater visual fidelity than ever before, which you can see for yourself in the work-in-progress screenshots showcasing some of the new 2015 cars and the Mexico track, but it's not just the visuals that have been overhauled. Encouragingly, Codemasters place a firm emphasis on what should be the most important aspect to racing game fanatics: the physics.

Over 20 areas of the handling model have been tweaked and enhanced, including engine and transmission, aerodynamics, fuel tank, force feedback, suspension and also a brand new tyre physics model.

Battlefield: Hardline Plagued By 'Tages-Like' DRM - briefly
(hx) 01:53 PM EDT - Mar,25 2015 - Post a comment / read (3)
Guru3D discovered that Battlefield: Hardline includes a DRM system that completely locks the game.
So currently I am working on a graphics performance review for Battlefield Hardline, and guess what ? Do you guys remember the DRM introduced in Ubisofts Anno 2070 ? Well, EA just did pretty much the same thing. I am so irritated right now.

So I started working on a performance review. And after a graphics card or eight I think it was, EA will now lock your account with the following message:



Here's what EAs DRM is doing, they don't just verify the number of PCs you work on slash use, nope .. they dare to monitor hardware changes now, which I am sure is a privacy breach on many levels. So once we insert new hardware (CPU / mobo or graphics cards) the hardware id # hash changes and if that happens a couple of times they are rendering your activation invalid.

What a bunch of rubbish ....

If this is the future for EA titles then you guys can forget about VGA performance reviews as EA is rendering that pretty much impossible now. I've now been waiting for like 3 or 4 hours and we are still locked out of the game. The only way to solve this would be purchasing another key and setup a secondary account. This means that if we'd like to make a VGA performance review on Battelfield Hardline with a card or 20 we'd need to purchase the game three times.
