Sucks but its not really unexpected publishers would do stuff like this. The whole free upgrade thing has never really been a thing in prior generations and I imagine every publisher other than MS think it's a terrible idea but have felt pressured into it.

On the front page carousels it has video and audio content both showing. It'd be nice if there was a way to see which was which at a glance. Like the old headphone icon that used to be over audio only content.

@poprocksandsoda: No problem, glad its sorted. Honestly while it sounds it in hindsight, its not that dumb IMO. If you don't know about the dust covers you're not going to be inclined to start pulling bits off your fairly expensive graphics without a reason to do so.

Do you have a link to a pic of the card? Or a model so I can look it up? I'm really curious which 970 doesn't have HDMI. Is it a particularly small version?

I've been looking round and can't find any without it. Are you sure it's not there but with a dust cover on it?

You should double check, I've never seen or heard of a 970 without an HDMI port. I'm pretty sure there will be one on there. That said if somehow there isn't, you can just buy and cable that is DVI at one end and HDMI at the other.

The motherboards HDMI is for the integrated graphics card not the 970. Most motherboards disable that when a proper card is installed. However even if it works you wont want to use it, it is many times weaker than a 970 and pretty much useless for gaming.

I'm having a few issues with videos at the moment. Flash works fine except that for some reason I have a general issue where most flash videos on any site seem to have the picture freeze for a second or so now and then while the sound continues. Specific to GB though I have major issues with the HTML5 player. Sometimes videos simply don't start. When they do they generally continue to play fine unless I use the seek bar to move forwards/backwards. When I do it jumps to that location plays for about half a second then freezes. I have to refresh the whole page to get any further response from the player.

Edit: I should add this is in firefox

Looking at this from outside the US is even worse. Not only did they only focus on TV features, those features wont even work if you happen to not live in their own country! So outside the US what does it offer? A more expensive console(they cost more in Europe) and less features. So at best its going to simply be a more powerful version of the 360 with added anti consumer features. Europe is already very pro Sony compared to the US and the whole used game drm,etc isn't going to help with that one bit
