Its like E3 all over again. Sony comes in after MS and gets to poke fun at their slip-ups with DRM, used games sales etc along with a lower price. Now the day after MS touts 3 million Ones sold they get to counter punch at CES with 4.2 million.

I may have covered this before on here somewhere,but I have the DVD versions of the Originals from the Limited Edition collections released in 2006 they look fine,and if a company like Lowry(who did the Bond movie restorations)could get hold of them,they can polish them up even more ready for HD conversion(i have no idea how it is all done,so....er..yeah)

The Bond movies were meticulously restored by frame by frame from the original negatives.

According to this Forbes article, which they admit is based off info from a sketchy site, the One was outsold by the Wii U the week before Christmas.
And the 3DS outsold everything. That's pretty amazing for a system that was practically DOA.

The 3DS was just overpriced at the start because Nintendo was greedy. Coming off the success of the Wii and DS they thought people would pay a premium for their system even though affordable was a cornerstone of those systems success. They quickly saw the error or their ways, lowered the price and it started selling.

Ah that's right. Its was the merchandising rights Lucas held onto at the time since the studio didn't think they were worth anything. Bad executive decision on that part.

Now I wonder why has there never been blurays of the original trilogy released so many fans have wanted(Not Lucas's bastardized versions) . Lucas always gave excuses up to saying that there basically weren't viable versions around anymore. Knowing Fox had the rights its amazing that they didn't keep negative copies of their own stored securely.

Uhm, no. Sorry, but the SW movies are overblown. It was a B movie that went over budget. Phenomenal special effects of its day but so much of what made it great has been tinkered and tampered with - the characters and the license are pretty much dead to me.

/rant from someone who just completed Force Unleashed ][

That's why i said early 90s,before the special editions(Before the Empire..sorry couldn't resist)


Is it true FOX still owns the current 6 Star Wars films until 2020 apart from the original Star Wars film,that they have the rights for forever?

Pretty sure Fox has just been the distributor for the previous films but Lucas owned all rights to the them, which would now be with Disney.

Looks like one of the prequel stand alone films WILL be about Boba Fett.....before Episode II was released i would have been over the moon about this,now i wish they leave the character alone,they have done enough damage to it

Who are these "they" you're talking about? We are dealing with a different company now, and in particular, with one less George Lucas.

Oh i see,so Disney will just ignore everything from Episode II?..damage is done

God we could only hope so.

Looks like the January games have been announced, and they finally have a good, somewhat recent game in Sleeping Dogs and there will also be Lara Croft: Guardian of Light.

Roughly a year and a half after PS+ gave Guardian of Light away for their members. retard

Hey it's only 9 months after Plus gave away Sleeping Dogs.  Seriously though, Pllus started off pretty crappy for games and got much better. GFG seems to be getting better and Microsoft didn't give up on it right at the end of their initial announcement.  So I'm pretty happy about it even if I've played both of the games.  Competition could make both of them even better. 

I really enjoyed Sleeping Dogs. It was much better than expected.  I actually got the Platinum on PS3.  It deserves more exposure.

Microsoft is gonna have to get allot better if there's to be any sort of competition in the monthly free games area. PS+ subs got these games awhile ago, and this month will get Brothers and Bioshock Inifinite. Frankly there's no comparison between the two offerings on a month to month basis.

My wife will not let me forget for one moment that Downton Abbey returns a week from Sunday, nor does she believe that I'm cold toward this season after the way the last one ended. I will probably end up watching it because that makes her happy, but I won't last long if it veers too far into soap opera.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Well you can't blame the writers/producers on the ending of season 3. The actor playing Mathew wanted out because of other roles being offered. It wasn't originally in their plans to off 2 main characters in one year.

Her character has been the lone disappointment for me this season. I assumed(as I bet others did) when it was announced she was of course going to be in a more action oriented role. Yet she just stands around looking pretty and berating Oliver about is CEO responsibility.

While it still feels very much like a standard network TV show in its style the two main characters make it worthwhile. I'll keep it on the viewing schedule for now.

Uhh really? The particle accelerator blows up, then crazy lightning hits him, then there's a closeup of him lying there and they show a little red light flicker effect across his face. Pretty sure that's him getting his powers.

I will say i"m still a little nervous with them introducing real superpowers into the world, since the first season was just regular action. Something I actually liked them choosing to do, but I'll hold off till I see more.

Nintendo is doing better right now, but 200,000 Marios sold? That isn`t great news.

Nintendo is cratering in sales. They push barely more than 200k consoles in one of the 2 busiest months of the year. Nintendo is gonna have to have a reckoning about their future after the Holidays.

NPD doesn't give numbers anymore. We'll only have them if MS or Sony allow it. They will also probably do allot of combining to make the numbers look better like last gen, or use doll or values in sales to spin it. Whatever puts their stuff in the best light.

The whole attacking shark concept is stupid anyway. Sharks don't hunt humans. They mostly just attack us if they think we're some other animal, which mostly happens when someone is splashing water while swimming along the surface. They'll typically stop their attack once they realize that their target isn't what they thought it is, which is why shark attack victims typically are only bitten, not eaten. The Assassin's Creed developers claim to want to make a realistic pirate setting, which makes it doubly stupid that they're enabling these old myths.

Uh the whole game is based on myths, legends, and fantasy. I hope you aren't playing the game assuming that any of what happens actually ever occurred in real life.

Do you take me for a complete idiot? Tongue

I'm referring to the developers making a huge point out of trying to portray a more realistic kind of pirate in this game than the swashbuckling Johnny Depps we usually get. If they've spent this effort trying to portray more believable pirates, why introduce the shark from Jaws? It kind of undermines their efforts.

I don't see whats more realistic about this game in terms of the characters or the setting than say the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. So no I still don't get your complaint.

Nintendo stop trying to cater to the hardcore market and while the casuals make up a very huge market they are also very slow to upgrade.  Most casuals are probably still using the Wii.

Because most casuals thought the Wii U was just a Wii with a different controller. Nintendo's messaging was horrible for it.
