    Do the new 360s still RROD?

    in Gaming Discussion on 17 March 2009

    nightsurge said: Zomb1337 said:RRoD is more like 10-15% instead of the inital 30-40%. Actually with the Falcon revision it was down to 5%.  I can only imagine that with the new Jaspers it is around 1-3% which is the accepted industry standard. Actually you are partially correct. The original RROD total system failure rate is below 5%, perhaps close to 3% but...

    GTA Chinatown Wars > GTA4

    in Gaming Discussion on 17 March 2009

    Devise01 said:GTA IV was amazing. Even if Chinatown was the greatest DS game, I still would not rank it above something that is in a resolution I dont need to squint at. The sound in GTA IV alone kills anything that is possible on the DS. Physics and animations are mind blowing. I dont know how people could compare the two and flat out say that Chinatown is better. I don't know how...

    Guinness Record - Most ******* Profanity ever, HOTD

    in Nintendo Discussion on 16 March 2009

    I totally get the over the top humor of the profanity, and I have absolutely no objection to it.I do wish they offered an alternative no F-Bomb option because I'm dying to give both of these games to my grandson who would flat go nuts over them. But while his parents don't have a problem with unrealistic fantasy violence, they won't OK that level of profanity....

    Is a single week really complete without some butthead expert speculating about the demise of the Wii.Either:1. they have never heard of Motion Plus2. they doesn't understand how M+ is going to change gaming3. they are engaged in wishful thinking4. had a deadline looming and couldn't think of anything else to write5. are deliberatley spreading disinformation on their own agenda6.

    Call of Duty: World at War (Wii) has sold 1m copies.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 16 March 2009

    I doubt that 1 million is the end of this story; I think this game is just hitting its stride. After a very slow start, now after 4 months it is currently #43 in overall sales and #13 for the Wii and selling at a rate of over 100K a month. It may have sold " just a fraction of the HD versions" but it is now selling at a rate just 13% less than PS3, and 37% less than Xbox360. It is now...

    Who has the most games? By Console? By Generation? By User Base?

    in Gaming Discussion on 15 March 2009

    I was curious which console had the greatest number of games. I'm referring to sheer number, not getting into the important but contentious question of quality. If our listing of games here at VG Chartz is accurate, here are the, possibly surprising, results: The Wii has the most games this generation with 807. The Xbox 360 has 568, 70% as many despite an extra year on the market. The PS3 has...

    Why Nintendo Fanboys Support the Wii

    in Nintendo Discussion on 15 March 2009

    Just to be clear; I'm not anybody's fanboy. Not until they send a check. [Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, please note; I CAN be bought. Rates are negotiable.] They are after all for-profit corporations, not a football team. They're not looking for fans, they want customers. I just happen to like the Wii, and the games on it, better than the alternatives. If you don't, then run on out and buy a...

    BTFeather55 said:It will be a bad thing if developers only try to imitate the top 5 games on the system. And if they don't try to advance current gens like Madworld, No More Heroes, and some of the new announced rpgs seem to be doing.

    wii is doomed theory: it wont sell becuase all its games are the same

    in Nintendo Discussion on 14 March 2009

    I'm not sure I can agree that somehow Zelda, Wii Fit, Cooking MaMa, Wii Music the Blob and Mad World is somehow less variety than Shooters , more shooters and Little Big Planet.Also I have to laugh at anyone that says the game mechanism is always the same. The Wii uses the Wiimote, the Nunchuck, the Balance Board, the Classic Controller, the wheel, Wii Zapper and soon the motion plus module as...

    in PC Discussion on 13 March 2009

    I can't go with that system. I like Toshiba but 2GB RAM is too little although you can upgrade that but I personally won't buy anything with Intel integrated graphics. They clutter up the market with machines with Windows Experience scores of processor et all = 5 , graphics =3. Here's a few options you might consider. All have true Core 2 Duo and discrete graphics and 4GB RAM NEW EGG TOSHIBA...
