I have a very hard time imagining that sony would back out of the console market.

I thought that about Sega.  But I don't think I'll be worried about Sony's console side unless they make some stupid decisions on the direction of the PS4.

Did Nintendo not fail for two whole console generations with the N64 and Gamecube?  As in fail miserably?  Even then they did not exit the console market.  Why would Sony do so being one gen removed from the clear-cut winner?

Nintendo did not fail miserably. Nintendo 64 and Gamecube might not made much money as Super Nintendo but they still made good profit.

Also, as much as I love my XBOX360, I do like my PS3 and I would like SONY to try harder~

I wouldn't touch this "game" with someone else's Wii. The whole thing seems half baked and stupid.

That is what most of people said about Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii, Animal Crossing, Wii Fit, etc before they came out.
Guess what? They all turned out to be either great and sold millions or decent and still sold millions  nod

or has single player story mode like GRAW 1 & 2.

Still like the show. However, I still don't like Mohinder storyline.

Maya: can you save me?
Mohinder: No, but I can do experiment on you.
Maya: uh.. ok
Mohinder: I found the way!
Maya: can you help me now?
Mohinder: I could but I rather work on having power than help you.
Maya: uh.. but it's dangerous!
Mohinder: shut up and sleep with me!
Maya: uh...ok~

And I also don't like way Hiro is potray in Seaon 3. He can't trust his best friend and start to treat him bad because he might betray he in the future that might not happen? WTF?

I don't get the DSi at all. I don't give a shit about taking photos or playing mp3s on my DS. So that leaves me with no GBA slot, more internal storage (maybe?) and an SD slot so I can buy stuff from them online? No thanks.

They should have made a true successor to the GBA/DS instead with these "features". As someone who bought an original DS (twice) and then bought a DS Lite (twice), I have no desire to upgrade again. If they release a megaton game like a new Metroid/Zelda DS and it's only available on the DSi via online sale, I will be mega-pissed.

What Nintendo DS? Looks like kid's toy, and I have Gameboy Advance, I will stick to cool looking PSP.

Few months later.... I am proud owner of Red Nintendo DS... This is the shit!

What Nintendo DS Lite? Why should I spend more money for same shit! I will stick to my regular DS and still cool looking but less played PSP.

Few months later.... Man~ this brand new Pink DS Lite is the shit!

What Nintendo DSi? Whay should I spend more money for almost same shit! I will stick to my Pink DS Lite and still cool looking but almost never played PSP.

Few months later ???  icon_biggrin

One of reason that I don't play online game is that I know I am going to get addicted.
And I know a person whom I used work with became homeless for few months because of online game addiction and that's just too scary for me.

Finally got to watch the Speed Racer and once again you can’t really judge the movie unless you have actually watched the movie.

Although the movie was not the best movie ever, it was one of the best popcorn movie this summer.

I think movie would done much more business if it was little shorter and if director’s name wasn’t Wachowski brother & sister. With last Matrix movie, somehow they became worst director ever and all the geeks hate them.

If you watched the old Speed Racer cartoon, you will love the movie.

It's just like when I used to work at retail. If store discount new release game for more than $10.00, it could be the best game in the universe, we would sell less because customers think that the game must be suck because price is too low.

143  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / 2008 Olympics US Medal Standing unfair? on: August 12, 2008, 12:26:39 PM
While I was watching 2008 Olympics, I found out something strange about Olympic medal standings.

USA use different method to count the medal from the official Olympics medal ranking which is being used by rest of the world.

USA just use total medal count.

Which means if China won 20 gold medals and US won 21 bronze medals then according to US medal count, we win? Winning is good and all but doesn’t that seem little unfair?

Would we changing back to other way if we have 20 gold and China has 21 bronze?

I hate going to the theatre by myself so I've been trying to setup a date to see this movie for the last 2 weeks. After 3 failed attempts I finally got to see the movie last night. A few times people in my office started talking about it and I had to literally stick my fingers in my ears while sitting in my cubicle waiting for them to go away.

Where was the Watchmen trailer?! I feel cheated.

The Joker was amazing. His level of insanity, facial ticks, body twitching and mannerisms really added to his creepiness. I loved how he kept changing the story about the origins of his scars. My main complaint was his access to resources even as he constantly killed his own guys (that's great for team morale) and burned money. Is it really feasible that he can load up these two different buildings with dozens of barrels loaded with gas and then do the same thing on two ferry boats with no one noticing?

Did Baman's morals change from BB? At the end of that movie he states "I'm not going to kill you, but I don't have to save you." Putting aside the contradiction of this statement why does he keep saving The Joker and not killing him. This guy is obviously a threat to everyone.

My biggest point of disbelief was Batman dropping Salvatore Maroni from a 2 or 3 story building and he lands straight down on his feet. OK, first of all I had to look away because that was painful to watch. His next scene shows him standing and later he is walking with a slight limp half heartedly using a cane. He would have two broken legs, ankles, hips, spine and or various other bones.

Are we to believe that they really emptied out an entire hospital in less than an hour?

3 different DNA's on the joker card? What, did he swab blood all over the thing or scotch tape their pubes to it? Then they apparently pulled a CSI miracle of getting DNA testing not only done within hours, but making a match to a judge, police commissioner and DA since these people all have their DNA in a database?

Do you actually believe that "wealthiest, most powerful men in the world, is spending his nights running around the city beating criminals to a pulp with his bare hands"?

It's movie... relaxe and enjoy~

I understand her point of view and story of her son. However,

They then sold him a USED copy of “Metal Gear Solid 4.” “How can the game already be used?” my son asked. “Because some people get frustrated if they don’t have ‘cheats’,” he was told.


Game Stop fanboys explained that Sony now has a special coating on Blu-ray game discs which makes them virtually scratch-proof.

Huh... What?

If you took GTA4, but changed it so you were on the side of the cops, cracking down on the drug dealers, that would be cool.

Even moreso, if you were not just a cop - but a supercop - with like, super high jumping abilities, and driving skills, and the like - that would be great.

Let's say it's ok for looong game such as RPG. But what about review of shorter games such as Halo, Resident Evil, Half-Life?

I believe if you are decent game player, and I am guessing game reviewer are,it would take them less than 10 hours to finish Halo 3 or Resident Evil 4. Some reviewers believe that even that is too much.

160  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Shocking News!! Game Reviewers admits not finishing the games for review on: July 15, 2008, 02:44:43 AM;more;20

Although it’s something that I had suspected for long time, it looks like it’s more than standard practice now days.

Here are some quotes from Gamespot article,

"I don't tell readers when I don't finish a game," freelancer Rowe said. "I know it might sound shady, but I guarantee that it's standard practice.

Nevertheless, some reviewers argue that there's no reason for a reviewer to finish a game when most readers aren't going to complete it either.

I remember Game Informer review of some Pokemon Dungeon game. Whole review was about how much he hates Pokemon & dungeon crawlers type game and does not mention anything about the actual game.
