1100 after tax on the uk site

We could have a tax battle all night long I guess, but yeah, the 2080 Ti looks to be retailing starting at 1300 euros in Finland. That's more than I've ever spent on a PC.

Ray tracing sure seems interesting, but I still see no reason to upgrade from a 1060. Especially not at these prices.

The 20th anniversary and 500 million unit PS4s both look very nice. And I always wanted a PSX. I guess I'm pretty into translucent shit, because I really like my crystal Xbox.

My actual Xbox is in the basement, so I pulled this picture from Google.

I'll play a Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter once in a while, sure. But it's not my favorite genre by any stretch and I will admit that the wealth of fighting game content coming from GB West has made me pay less attention to their content.

OK, thanks for cooling my jets on this one I guess. I think I'll just spend the money on festival tickets instead.

I've had a PS4 Pro since it launched and I've been very happy with it. Zero issues.

However, I cannot fully recommend if you don't have a 4K TV. Better performance is certainly a great thing but more than half the reason to get a pro is to make games as nice as they can possibly look on a 4K TV. Up to you.

The thing is, whenever I hear the GB crew discuss playing games on a PS4 Pro or Xbox One X, the comments usually go something like "I haven't really used the 4K mode, because I always opt for the higher frame-rate".

Considering that, and that I too prefer frame-rate to higher resolution, I guess that the benefits of the Pro would be similar to me whether I own a 4K TV or not. Just higher, or at least more stable, frame-rates and perhaps some visual upgrades to most games.

The game I'm kind of looking at regarding this is Red Dead Redemption 2. I'm guessing it's going to be a 30fps game on base consoles, but could be bumped up to 60fps on the X and Pro.

I'd be interested in hearing some PS4 Pro experiences, especially from 1080p folks, as well. My local GameStop has an offer where I could trade in my 2013 PS4 for a Pro for about 150 euros.

Lately I was considering upgrading my Xbox One S to an X, but I've started to think that the Pro upgrade might make more sense. I play my Xbox exclusives on a relatively powerful PC and the S already has a UHD-drive for when I eventually buckle and get myself that 4K-TV.

So does the Pro make sense for a HD-TV owner, who's interested in a better experience with upcoming Sony exclusives and Red Dead Redemption 2? Are the fans a problem, because my 2013 model is certainly too loud already? And what is the rumor situation regarding perhaps a slimmer Pro to be announced in the near future?

I think the Joy-Cons will make it hard to do a very extensive redesign of the Switch. However, the large bezels of the current model do leave room for a slightly bigger and perhaps higher resolution screen. Things like battery capacity and integrated memory could also be updated along with adding cameras.

But I see none of this happening this year or even in 2019.

Hiya duders!

Looks like my trusty old Logitech G500 is finally on it's last legs. The left mouse button has been unreliable for months now and in the last days the situation has deteriorated to where you really need to give it a good whack to get a click done at all.

So I'm in the market for a new gaming mouse. I've had a few looks around the internet and at the moment I'm sort of leaning towards the Logitech G502, because the ergonomics seem similar to the G500 I'm already used to. However I'm not opposed to looking outside the Logitech product range at all. I've fiddled with some of the Razer and Roccat mice before for example and they seem plenty good too. I just would like to minimize the amount of blinking lights and flashy designs on the mouse. Oh and my budget would definitely be under €100.

So what sort of mice are you all using these days? Does someone have a grasp (pun intended) on the G502 and experiences they could share? Or is there something new on the market I should pay attention to?

@bonbonetti: If anything, F1 teams have just been getting better at letting teammates race each other.

Since Cyberpunk or Halo are probably not coming out next year, I'll say Control and Doom.
