People mocked it (people that haven't tried it) but having my Sky box plugged into the X1 is great imo. I'm always watching TV while I play games so having them both on the same screen is pretty cool. I use headphones (Astro a50) so the only way I can here the TV normally is if I put them around my neck, but with the snap feature I can here both and adjust the sound for each. 

Can't newer Smart Tv's do the picture in picture thing anyway?

Uh , how is it possible to watch and hear 2 things at one time.

Because you can mix the sound, have TV quiet and game louder and works great especially using headphones. You don't look at them both at the same time, during loading or when having a break. I've always done it, I especially have SkySports News on while gaming or news channels. Like I said until you've tried it you can't really see how good it works. My TV has pip but you can't do it with hdmi (Atleast on my TV) only works if you use the built in freeview.

just been reading about stutter for those that use the Sky box with the Xbox not entirely suer I'll have mine wired  up that way yet as I'll need to give it some thought and discuss how to make this work with my mum first because I would need her help to make it happen.  I'm thinking I'll have to rearrange my desk area anyway to make room for it so will need her help on this project. I've got a couple of little things so will wait for those first before getting it I think. I'm thinking about putting my TV on a wall bracket and having the console underneath where my TV is currently sitting but until I've given it some thought I don't know.

It doesn't stutter with my Sky+ HD box, it didn't work with the hdmi cable that came with the Sky box though. It seems if you use a hdmi 1.4 cable then it's fine, no stutter or anything. It's just a choice though for whatever suits you, for me it's perfect but won't be everybody's cup of tea.

MS must have fixed the problem thenbut I'm looking forward to getting hold of mine when I do.

Yea it could, I'm just a bit OCD with keeping my car looking good. It's less than 2 years old so really stands out. At least it's on the passenger side so I don't have to look at it when I get in the car. 

And he just drove off ? What a ... I won't say it because the last time I got banned for swearing when I didn't even swear.  :p

DONE DEAL

Belgian forward Gianni Bruno has made move to French side Evian.

The 22-year-old leaves for a reported l'eau transfer fee which is apparently a mere drop in the ocean with Evian having already signed five players this summer.

The former Bastia man will have a spring in his step after moving and I suspect will try to find some sparkling form for his new club.

Don't listen to the rumours he was tapped up, our mountain source tells us it was all legit.

How are these puns for you by the way? Does it feel like I'm trying to faucet?

The question for Bruno is though; does he have the minerals to impress at Evian?

 

 

*Ok, I'm done now.

All they'll do is announce that the game features the F1 2014 tracks and cars including the reigning world champion Sebastein Vettel like they did with 2011. I hope whoever was responsible for that info 'bomb' was sacked.

I bet all they'll do is announce a release date plus what you said with more details to be announced in a few weeks. I'll  be mad if they do that. I really hope to see some game play, but again, I doubt it.

I expect there to be a ton of rage threads popping up.....

I guarantee one of them will be about the game using the old Red Bull nose where the TV camera was stuck inside the nose instead of the new one where the TV camera is visible....

LOL at the person in that thread who thinks it's going to be ps3/4 exclusive..... Not going to happen as they would loose a lot of customers. I don't really go to other parts of the forum as there's so many crazy people  :#

yeah I kept telling him it would never be a PS exclusive CM would lose too much money from it. The only question really in terms of machines is. Is it last gen or next? My money is on next based on the rumours and tweets I've seen but we'll find out for sure tomorrow.

It will both, there's still a lot of money to be made on the previous gen consoles, and tbh it's only really a re-skinning job needed. Take FIFA for instance, they just release a re-hashed version every year and people still buy it; i'll be shocked if CM don't do the same.

EA generally have more resources though and Fifa 15 this year is having quite a big upgrade this year to be honest. I also remember reading that Autosport was supposedly going to be CM's last game for last gen so I  don't know what to think there. Anyway we'll find out tomorrow hopefully.

Fifa on PS4 was a big step up from the PS3 version tbf to EA. Which surprised me.

Luke's already said it's not a PS4 exclusive and he's still claiming it is so he's just trolling. He'll probably still say it is when the announcement is made on what consoles it's on.
