What alleged 'massive subsidies'? The $7500 tax-credit? Is your home mortgage interest deduction a 'massive subsidy'? The goal of the $7500 tax-credit was to incentivize clean EVs . . . and it succeeded! Li-Ions batteries have been driven down from $1000/KWH to just over $200/KWH. There are now affordable plug-in cars that allow us to get off oil. This is good for climate change, the trade deficit, local pollution, creating jobs, national security (stop sending money to Putin & mid-east).
John Peterson. That's it. Go look at all those articles on Seeking Alpha about how great lead-carbon batteries are and how Tesla was a failure. Well, time has made its judgment . . . Peterson is the failure and Tesla rolls on.
That jerk Peterson got an account I had on Seeking Alpha banned because I harshly criticized him. They should have banned him instead and saved a lot of people a lot of money. What a complete tool.
Why would ENPH choose ELIIY over TSLA?
Why choose at all? There is no reason they can't do both. And they are stupid if they ignore the biggest battery plant being constructed.
And if you are impressed by ENPH's 1.2KWH battery with no apparent ability to disconnect from the grid then I don't know what to tell you.
LOL! You have got to be kidding. Tesla is building a battery factory that will be as big as every Li-Ion battery factory that existed on the planet 4 years ago COMBINED. They are pushing the hardest to drive down battery costs since their business plan requires it. They are ALREADY the cheapest in the EV world (around $230/KWH) and they are trying to push it further with a massive vertically integrated battery plant that will take in raw materials on one end and output finished car batteries, powerpacks, and powerwalls on the other. Yeah, Tesla is hiring a lot of people because it will be the biggest battery factory on the planet. But it will be just as automated or more automated that small fry ELIIY Power.
Uh . . . But Enphase doesn't make batteries. Enphase plants to just pack someone else's batteries into a box. And I doubt they got a good deal on the batteries. What they need is an AC coupling front-end for Tesla's battery. One that can disconnect the house from the grid and keep the microinverters operating.
Except their battery solution doesn't exist. And what they've teased has been disappointing.
Did they really just leave that money sitting on the table like that? We got GTA V for the new consoles. We got old Halos for the new Xbox. We are getting old Uncharteds for the PS4 . . . give us RDR for the new consoles. I don't care how bad the code was, you can certainly get some people to patch it up.
People vote down the NPD list? Weird.
What the hell is 'PDLC'? I know you mean single player DLC but I don't see how that translates to PDLC.
Pretty nice showing for TTWO considering the lack of product out there. I really hope that the WWE 2K16 game is decent but until they FIRE YUKES, I have to prepare to be disappointed. I don't understand why they don't have 2K Sports build a new wrestling engine, fire Yukes, and do a big reboot of the franchise. They have the talent . . . use it.
I'm liking it. The Soundtrack sounds GREAT. The pick of 1968 is interesting since it sounds like they are going to incorporate Vietnam, Kennedy getting killed, and MLK getting killed as news events. I'm pumped. Disappointing that it won't make it into this fiscal year. But Mafia III certainly should sell a lot better than Evolve which fizzled out.
GTA V online ill Gotten Gains are FREE DLC. If they listed those on the pipeline they might get in trouble for trying to mislead investors. You have really strange views and you are quite angry. Calm down.
Dude, TTWO has published a pipeline. I don't think there will be any single player GTA DLC this year. You get XCOM 2, Battleborn, NBA 2K16, WWE 2K16, maybe Mafia 3, and some smaller fluff. That's it. If you don't like it then sell.
Lots of time between now and the end of the fiscal year . . . but . . . Well Hangar 13 didn't exist until last year. And I presume they are working on code from 2K Czech so there may be some time to learn the code and make their own adjustments. Then again, it has been a long time since Mafia 2 so 2K Czech should have been pretty far along unless the development went awry.
Hmm . . . I think they will get it out this fiscal year but it probably will be around next March. And they could decide to delay it if they've already meet their numbers.
Meh. They've lifted the ban but they've left so much censorship in place that no one wants the official consoles. The hardcore gamers import the consoles from other countries or mostly play PC games.
I love today's 2K announcement though . . . the addition of Arnold/Terminator as a playable WWE 2K16 character. But they still need to fire Yukes!
I don't know if that is true but I certainly don't have any other good explanation for the recent run-up.
I was thinking about the single player DLC that will eventually come out. There are probably a lot of people that played GTA V on the PS3 or 360 that did not bother to upgrade to GTA V on the PS4 or Xbone. But now they may have that new console and are using it as their main console. And when the single player DLC comes . . . will they buy it for the PS3 or 360? I would think they would want to play it on the PS4 or Xbone now. Thus, when the single player DLC ships, TTWO might sell a bunch more copies of GTA V for the PS4 or Xbone. So that's something to look forward to eventually.
Uh . . . I'll never understand it when people downvote posts that basically just contain facts. Do you think downvoting is going to change reality? The only opinions I have in that are that 'Warner is absolutely killing it' (which mostly seems pretty factual with 4 games in the top 10) and that TTWO is mostly going to rely on GTA legs and annual for this year (again also basically factual).
