Does it mean that Mass Effect is "super-duper-mega-über-fantastic" because it has sold 1.6M and Uncharted sucks because it is struggling to break 2-300k?

both are awesome games, and you have to wonder how both would have done if they were cross-platform.

Okay, at this point, I'm positive that MILLIONS OF GAMERS aren't getting on Live at the same time.  So Major, quit your PR spin and admit the problem.

There wasn't a problem after the Halo 3 launch, and I'd argue there was more traffic during that time.

if it's not all the traffic then you have to wonder why all of a sudden it's borked.  I bet they screwed something up with the Fall update that's just become apparent.

Evidently Warner's Sister Studio, New Line, has confirmed that they are Bluray exclusive too.

And that means the Lord of the Rings Ultimate Extended Director's Cut Hi-Def Gouge Edition!

I'd buy that.  I'd wait until I could get it used of course, but I'd still own it eventually.

One thing is for certain: there is no stopping them; Blu Ray will soon be here. And I for one welcome our new DVD overlords. I'd like to remind them that as a trusted forum personality, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sweat shops.

I'm marked as 47% avoided meaning 47% of the people I play with have marked me with negative feedback.  It's almost exclusively for being 'aggressive' and 'unsporting' which translates into 'Harkonis kicked my ass and I didn't like it'.

That's because you cheat.  Even I put you on my avoid list.

you should get a PS3 so you can play Uncharted!

Yeah...don't set yourself up for disappointment man.

well, if he gets Uncharted, Ratchet and Clank and Motorstorm he should be fine for awhile.  I got to play some MS on New Years Eve and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised, enough to plan to add it to my collection soon.

Those plus Resistance, Warhawk and Folklore are all games I'm very much looking forward to.  slywink

I wasn't wowed by the Resistance demo (I hear it was a poor representation but even the general gameplay did wow me) and I'm not sure how I felt about the Folklore one- I mean other than the zippy graphics it felt like it was missing something.  I may be picking up Warhawk this weekend though.

i've been on the verge of buying the 360 HD-DVD with some gift cards i got for christmas.  i guess i'll hold off on that for a little while now that it's looking more likely that HD-DVD will eventually go the way of the dodo.  unfortunately, i won't be buying a BluRay player unless they manage to drop the price significantly.  i really was looking forward to HD movies...

I'm still picking up a HD DVD player.  it's not like the Blu Ray fanboys are going to show up at everyones doorstep and confiscate them, plus imagine the nice sale on HD-DVD's they'll be having  thumbsup

Global warming, hah!  He said it was a winter storm.  YOU SHOULD READS TEH POSTS, LOL!!!1

Global "warming" means energy gets added to the atmosphere, which will increase the wind speed, and thus increases storms.  While it does raise the average temperature of the planet (you can ask Greenland and Antarctica about this, to name a few places), it doesn't mean cold air just magically disappears.

I know you were joking, but the Mr. Wizard explaination is for the kids playing at home.

Really, it all depends on how much Bioware got out of the deal (duh).  1.6 million is incredible but if EA thinks they can make more money on a new EA published Bioware IP than they get from an MS publshed Mass Effect sequel then it just doesn't make fiscal sense to allow Bioware to develop it.

you actually think there is a real and good chance that there might not be a Mass Effect 2?

No, because I think MS will give EA what they want within reason.  But no matter how much Bioware is "inspired" and motivated to make the franchise, they are a wholly owned part of EA now and EA has a responsibility to their shareholders to do what will make them the most money.  And it isn't necessarily fiscally responsible to have a chunk of a company that EA just paid $650 million dollars for spending the next four or five years using those resources on a product EA will only see a developer's chunk of change from, instead of a publisher's chunk of change.  So EA is only going to turn Bioware loose on the project if they are suitably compensated for it. 

what if Bioware was under contract to MS for all 3 Mass Effects?  would EA buying them negate such a contract?
