    Why can't 360 and PS3 be as reliable as the Wii?

    in Gaming Discussion on 23 June 2009

    A lot of problems are heat related and Nintendo dodges that bullet pretty well by a more conservative design. Certainly they can and do fail but at a commendably low rate. But to give credit where it's due, they put in some impressive build quality. Next time you change the batteries in the Wiimote, check out the battery holder. They could have just used a bent piec of metal like the rest of the...

It also has the lowest amount of AAA rated games of the 3 "by far". I'm sorry, I thought I made it clearer.

    student said:This is definitely a great sign. And it shows that we've been seeing some real quality titles as of late.However, to play devil's advocate, the holiday season probably undoes this whole thing. That's when a lot of the devs release their AAA titles as well as the junk to capitalize on the mainstream market for the wii.Still, this is a huge step forward. The Metacritic...

    MontanaHatchet said:You can't really prove a point by cherrypicking a bunch of examples, although I suppose you can try. If you remember grade school math, you should know that calculating a mean or average is usually the best measure of central tendency, UNLESS there are exceptional outliers. The main reason the PS3 and 360 averages have fallen lately is that summer time is usually the...

    As a Wii owner, I don’t tend to hang around on Metacritic all that much…well actually not at all for a long time. All those red boxes hurt my eyes and the numbers depressed me. It was the sort of feeling I might get if I wandered into a biker bar by mistake; nice place for them but it’s no place for me. Well I dropped in for an overdue visit and my oh my, they’ve changed...

    For statistics of browser usage in the general academic community, I work at a major medical university. For the month of February the university had 203,624 unique visitors, the download bandwidth was 395 GB. Of this traffic: .edu 40%, .net 30%, ip (unknown) 20%, .com 8%.  Other top visitors <1% in order of usage: .org, .gov, .de, .us, .mil. In other words the largest group of visitors...

    I will NEVER willingly download and depend on anything by Google, the one company that has become more invasive and malignant than Microsoft ever dreamed of being. They lost my faith , and patronage when they adopted the very malicious practice of forcing you to actively opt out of thier stupid toolbar when you download ANY FRIKING THING. Reputable companies invite you to opt in, not opt out of...
