    Competitive gaming for cash, would you do it? If so, how often?

    Not just in casinos, people play poker at home with their friends too. People play online poker on various websites all the time like pokerstars.

    Competitive gaming for cash, would you do it? If so, how often?

    For the folks that wouldn't spend a dime playing games, would you have spent money playing poker at a casino? If so, I don't see the reason why you would do it for poker but not for games.

    Competitive gaming for cash, would you do it? If so, how often?

    That's the biggest concern but I wonder how much that would affect the grand scheme of things. Think of things like softball tournaments... how often do those people "dope" drugs to play better? I'd think it's a very small percentage. Considering money is involved now, it's also a...

    Competitive gaming for cash, would you do it? If so, how often?

    Not just computers though. Mobile apps and consoles would be the other market and those are very tough to hack.

    Competitive gaming for cash, would you do it? If so, how often?

    What you're referring to though is a game of chance. Games of skill have a different audience where people are generally only willing to play if they have trained for it (or have confidence in their abilities). For instance, I would consider myself pretty good at Heroes of Newerth and would...

    Competitive gaming for cash, would you do it? If so, how often?

    It wouldn't be just for MW2 and other hugely popular shooters. I'm talking moreso about the smaller indie games and even the casual games. I mean, how many folks on the transit/bus play mobile games like chess or scrabble? At least several hundred thousand in the world at any given point...

    AMD's Graphics going under?

    I'm praying for a good severance package :( Anyone can suggest a company for someone with my credentials to apply to?? Here's my LinkedIn profile if you're curious or don't believe me: http://ca.linkedin.com/pub/stephen-co/2/ba4/810 :)

    How would that work? I guess getting recruited for a pro team and playing in the big leagues?

    Competitive gaming for cash, would you do it? If so, how often?

    That could get addictive real fast lol. I'm assuming if this were ever used, the game developers would cap the amount of money you lose in some time period like $20 a month.

    Competitive gaming for cash, would you do it? If so, how often?

    You could always go small like $2, and do it maybe once a week. Imagine going to the coffee shop and whipping out your phone to compete for high score in a match of Angry Birds against a friend.

    Competitive gaming for cash, would you do it? If so, how often?

    So I'm curious about the direction that the gaming industry and its user-base is heading towards. Video games have always been on the cusp of "acceptable activity" and "waste of time". But in the last decade or so, gaming competitions and tournaments where players win cash have been more...

    AMD Designing Next-Gen Playstation's GPU

    I'm saying that to stop the rumor train and spread of mis-information. I don't have pride nor reason to be mysterious. I won't say who is wrong nor right but that there is too much mis-information in here that will (and is already) misleading alot of people. And I work in a cubicle. Does...

    AMD Designing Next-Gen Playstation's GPU

    As an employee of AMD's GPU division, I can gladly (and safely) say that you are all wrong. But because I'm an employee, I can't say much else.

    PCI Express 3.0 Has Zero Performance Incentive for Radeon HD 7970: Tests

    Unfortunately I can't comment on our 3.0 chipset availability due to conflict-of-interest related stuff. Instead, what I can say is this, would it make sense for AMD to NEVER release a 3.0 chipset and let Intel take free reign of that market segment? I'm sure you know the answer to that...

    PCI Express 3.0 Has Zero Performance Incentive for Radeon HD 7970: Tests

    Hi, I'm the lead PCI-Express systems engineer over @ AMD Markham that brought up PCI-E 3.0 for this generation of GPUs. I would like to contact the author of that article but I can't find this email address. If someone would be so kind as to put me in contact with him that would be great. I...

    The Witcher 2 Contains Secret Sauce To 'Catch 100% Of Pirates'

    How would you feel if I copied your school paper that you worked 50 hours on? Takes me 1 hour to copy it and then I go party and get laid while you are resting after all that work. WHY is it ALWAYS the EUROPEANS that are AGAINST anti-PIRACY??? WHY???

    The Witcher 2 Contains Secret Sauce To 'Catch 100% Of Pirates'

    This is a very poorly written opinionated news posting. I work in the tech industry with very close ties to gaming companies and I assure you, piracy DOES eat into the bottom-line. Maybe not in extreme examples like MW3, but indy developers get hit the hardest. So rather then be all...

    GIGABYTE Extends SLI Support on Entire X58 Series Motherboards

    ATI and NV can do Crossfire/SLI on any PCI-e chipset with at least 2 PCI-e ports. It's a legal matter that makes us set the disabled flags in the driver/registry (ATI) whereas in NVIDIA, it's a hidden BIOS setting mapped to a register.
