Desk Console Stacker Shelf?

17 September 2014 - 07:45 PM

I have a ps4 and plan on getting an xbox one soon.  I'm not quite sure if I have enough room on my desk for it.   Any recommendations for a stacking rack type thing?

Sound Solution for Console Gaming At Monitor

10 September 2014 - 04:36 AM

I have my ps4 set up at a monitor.  I was thinking of getting the gold headset but for $80 I figured I might just get a pair of bookshelf speakers with an amp that also has a headphone out for my sennheiser hd 558s which don't quite get as loud as i care for in games.  Any suggestions?

Why doesn't Microsoft Just Release a Steambox Alternative?

09 September 2014 - 04:37 PM

Serious question Microsoft owns windows. The whole purpose of this Metro bs was to have one os for multiple platforms.  So why instead of developing a completely separate os for the xbox one why don't they just slap a copy of windows on it and add drm to make certain games like halo only playable on their box?  Wouldn't it solve a bunch of complaints about codec support etc if people could just download vlc or something?  Heck they can even put a dumbed down version without the traditional desktop view but still have all the metro versions of apps run. Wouldn't having all this extra stuff and not having to do much extra development be a no brainier? 

Comfortable PC Gaming

09 September 2014 - 03:44 PM

I'm curious how you guys game in the most comfort on a pc?  After moving my ps4 to a desk I'm actually thinking I might be able to game in comfort on a pc.  I got a cheap loveseat at the thrift shop equal to the length of the desk and added an ottoman underneath the desk for foot rest that also doubles as storage for disc based games.  There is a drawer on my right hand side where I can stash my controllers.  Add a nice comfy pillow for behind your back and it's pretty dang sweet.  On top of that there is retractable thing for keyboard and mouse that makes it so that I can type without having to lean forward.  Gotta say pretty awesome.  

Are consoles bought off ebay/craigslist covered by warranty?

Say I want an xbox one but, don't feel like paying $30 in taxes to the goverment would it still be covered by the 1 year warranty?
