My launch XBOX 360 has finally died so back to BB it goes.  Fortunately I have another 360, unfortunately this is the one that my wife usually plays on....

Stupid, only kinda related question-is Bioshock PC vista only?

I'm having trouble finding an list of projected requirements, but from what little information I can find, it seems like it'll run under XP as well.

-Autistic Angel

According to the specs I see it will run under XP with DirectX 9.

Quote from: denoginizer on July 09, 2007, 10:18:13 PM

If sales were 6-1 in favor of the 60gig that could be because shipments favored 60gigs by at least 6-1.  Also you cannot site preorders for evidence.  People that preordered were also the people who were buying and selling PS3's for $1200.  Not typical consumers by any stretch of the imagination.

I wonder what the return numbers were after eBay sales tanked.

BUT WE ARE NOT AT LAUNCH!!! As Kevin keeps saying, the original 20GB machine is GONE, it is no longer a factor, so the cost of someone getting a PS3, from July 8 to July 9 is now $100 cheaper. That is irrefutable th"Fool, irrefutable.

Actually, on the 7th I pointed out that there were 20 gig PS3's on Gamestop.com for $499.  I don't know how long they had been up, but you're off by at least 1 day  Tongue  I do wonder what they did with the 20 gigs left over since they're off the site now though....

66691  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 price drop? on: July 09, 2007, 03:09:51 PM
we can still put our own HD's in, right?  If so then the new $599 80 gig edition isn't that much of a deal for me as I'm not so sure I'd be interested in Motorstorm and the 60 gig edition still has everything that I'd want.

John Steakley's ARMOR needs to be a 3-part movie now. It should be the epic movie that Starship Troopers completely failed to be.

I don't think there was enough book for a 3 part movie adaptation.  2 maybe, but from what I remember (it's been years since I read it and I like Vampire$ much more) they could probably do it in 2 1/2 hours.

I also wonder what they're going to do for the sequel, because

Spoiler for Hiden:
unlike the animated series they had no problems knocking off characters.  RIP most of the Decepticons (although I'm sure they'll find some way to ressurect Megatron) and Jazz.

Own it, run it, and haven't been having too many issues so far.  My biggest problem was the copy protection for Gothic 3, but I grabbed the cracked .exe for it and it runs fine now.  The most issues I've been having have been older games not supporting widescreen resolutions  disgust

Apparently, the price drop is going into effect now, as there are scattered reports of stores already selling PS3s for $500.

Gamestop has the 20 gig version back on their website for $500.  I could have swore they stopped carrying those.

Right now on the PC I have Gothic 3 and Oblivion waiting to be completed for the first time.  KotOR is on hold, and I have the first one set to be played.  Now if you get into Gametap territory well that's a whole other monster.

They're using the Queen song in the previews that are airing on SciFi now.

For any customer who has previously paid for repair expenses related to the three flashing lights error message on the Xbox 360 console, Microsoft will retroactively reimburse them.

How, exactly, will I get that refund? Does MS send me a check or something?

so we can presume that barring anything unforseen, the game is content complete, feature locked, and probably relatively bug free.

If it was all those things, it would be on a shelf.  If the framerate is really too bad for release, and they're doing optimizations, then you can bet they've got plenty of bugs to fix smile  Optimizations are one of the biggest bug generators out there.

My money's on 2008.  I think if they were close we would at least have heard a definitive "this year" out of them.
