From what I have read Microsoft has lost overall 6 to 7 billion dollars so far all together (xbox and 360)in the console arena.

Which is a lot a money, but again that's a lot of start up costs and creating a new brand.  Moving forward the losses should be less (even for say XB 720 or whatever) so...

which, given their last dev cycle for the 360, should be in 3-4 years  icon_wink

Well, that's good to hear.  Does it do say anything to exclude war protesters or civil rights organizations?

well, Sec. 8 ends with 'person' falling under the umbrella of the United States, so:

Quote
Sec. 3. For purposes of this order:

(a) the term "person" means an individual or entity;

(b) the term "entity" means a partnership, association, trust, joint venture, corporation, group, subgroup, or other organization; and

(c) the term "United States person" means any United States citizen, permanent resident alien, entity organized under the laws of the United States or any jurisdiction within the United States (including foreign branches), or any person in the United States.

so the hippies should be safe  icon_wink

Quote from: JCC on July 20, 2007, 09:38:26 PM

I am guessing based on anecdotal data that the PS3 will do better in North America in July due to the price drop. Since the price was lowered things have returned to earlier in the year around here where I only see 360's for sale and stores out of Wiis AND PS3s. It will be interesting to see how long this bump to the PS3 sales lasts.


They're still gathering dust around here, and still no Wii's.  I've been trying to help a friend find a Wii so I've been on the lookout.

Ive read to the point where Todd entered Megaton. I had to stop to write this.

It says theres a loading screen when entering a town like Megaton. Umm why? Stalker did'nt do that. it only loaded zones. Is Fallout gonna load every town then every door like Oblivion?

Yes, there was a loading screen when entering a town.  It is far shorter of a load time than Oblivion though.  With a year to go, that could be so brief as not to matter.



plus I'm sure there will be mods like Open Cities for the game.

Another interesting thing I thought of this morning: this could also be easily be use to seize the assets of congress persons (or anyone, really) calling for the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq.

It sounds like Sec. 8 may prohibit that.

He has had his own comic for years... he's not A list (Superman, Spiderman, Hulk, Wolverine) but I would put him above Ghost Rider and Daredevil.

If you ignore the movies I'd say he's neck and neck with Ghost Rider.  Of course the Hulk just smashed Iron Man and Ghost Rider held his own.

425.00 GBP = 873.829 USD.  hmmm, if I'm figuring it right (and assuming that's the $599 version) that's about how much all of those would cost if all that was purchased seperately over here.

Circuit City.  Sorry, I should have mentioned that.  If you hurry, hopefully they still have some.

It won't let you order the console unless it's bundled, however.

Oh, I was in the process of ordering and adding things to my order when it went to "sold out".  I was pissed!

when Amazon had Wii's available I didn't waste time ordering anything else with it.  I placed my order right away and then took my time getting accessories together with a second order.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Turns out that Snape had an affair with Lilly and is really Harry's Dad. It also seems that Hermonie is Harry's sister and that she was addopted by the Muggles to hide her, which explains where she gets her talent from. Ron hooks up with Hermonie and hint on marraige. Padfoot comes back as a ghost, as does Dumbledore and they tell Harry that he must defeat Snape and Voldemort. Harry feels sorry for Snape and what his father did to him and tries to win Snape back over. At the end, when Voldemort is about to finally kill Harry, Snape intercepts the spell just as he hits Voldermort with one and they both die. Meanwhile, Ron and Hermonie conjur up a large pack of ferrets and use them to defeat all the Death Eaters. At the end, Snape comes back as a ghost with Dumbledore and Padfoot, while the Weasly twins shoot off fireworks.....
