    It's a valid concern, although their true aim is censorship... through ownership of the studio's they can dictate the content those studios create.... ha.. dictate.

    now all they need to do is remove the need to have multiple launchers and downloads for games bought from other developers via Epic (looking at you ubisoft!)

    Sony has a stake in Epic so I wouldn't worry too much about outside inference.

    funny. doubt you would still say the same if someone would make public your countries "secret" stuff.
    his actions were illegal, no matter the reason, and it didnt do anything to change.[/QUOTE]
    No and from experience countrie which need to keep most things as secrets are the most evil one.. in case of USA it was against its own laws.. I personally not believe in armies, secret stuff and all other so called important things.. They are all based on picture of image mostly imagined enemy and generate money to same army suppliers.. and i hope that they will in short time become obsolete as trench warfare or duty to become soldier if government will give a order. Progress is slow, but it getting better and better and in 50-150 years, we will finally in world without wars.. and we will see only wery small local conflicts and protests..and whole ten concept of state security and powerful goverments would be archaic thing from the past.

    Still not fixed. Client updated to 11.0.2-14967703 and issue occurs. I'm running a 3900XT on an ASUS Crosshair VII HERO X570. Temps go up 5-10C idle even when minimized to taskbar. Idle temp of 40 on desktop turns into 50 once open.

    Yep! I used a dummy account one time just for a game transfer on a mobile app I played. Deleted it never used it for anything else.

    Not a fan of social media. I never used it and have no plans. Never got into My Space either when it was big.

    This is the incorrect way to treat your own privacy.

    Did you all think that all those free epic games were for free?? No no, you exchange some portion of your amd CPU power in order to get the games for free :p


    JK, but this is seriously not good from the epic games' side. Always monitor your background resources!

    I believe in TCP/IP stack analysis. Disabling the proper telemetry services and task, you don't sand nothing in idle.

    Keep on keepin on.

    Hey. I "WON'T" take that money you left out. Because I said I wouldn't.... And you hit the button to not allow me to.

    Just watch your internet accessibility and tell me there's no cross talk going on in your system that you didn't allow.

    And besides. There's truly that much and or that important of information on your computer to be singled out for some sort of attack?

    Or do you do enough shady shite that you might pick up an infection and get robbed?!?

    I don't get the mentality is all. Conspiracy this and conspiracy that.

    Besides the CPU usage, did anyone actually look at GPU usage?

    Watching the store carousel images, GPU usage was spiking up and down.
    Kinda ridiculous to see 150w of GPU usage on some slideshow lol
