    Counter Thread on Socialism

    in Politics Discussion, last active on on 09 February 2018

    I wanted to state my opinion on what socialism is from a different viewpoint, but one that I feel is more accurate. First I want to discuss capitalism.  The most well know writer on the subject is Adam Smith, though he wasn't the first.  One thing he his contemporaries and predecessors had in common is they were writing their observation of how markets functioned in practice,...

    Why I don't like the Joy-Cons

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 26 October 2016

    The more I think about it, the less I like the Joy-Con controllers.  As has been discussed ad nauseum, they are too small and the buttons arranged too awkwardly to be used as single controllers.  Also, that grip controller looks rather strange, and I think I would just use the pro (yes I plan to buy regardless). Now the thing that bothers me is a lot of Nintendo fans and the...

    Nintendo Switch to succeed, then fail

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 02 November 2016

    I have to admit, I was really hyped by the switch reveal.  I think it will be really successful at launch and immediately following.  However, upon review, I think sales will ultimately slow and it will fail in the long run.  All the functions and different ways of playing seem impressive, however, none of them seem great.  Here are my thoughts, let me know if anyone...

    PC vs. Consoles - Cost and power comparison

    in PC Discussion, last active on on 23 June 2013

    I have a general question about PC gaming. How much would it cost to build or buy factory built a PC that was comparable in power to the PS4? Also, could you even buy or build a PC even as powerful as the PS3 around $260?  (including WIFI/Bluetooth, Blue Ray and peripherals)? I get that PC's certainly have a higher ceiling, but how does the cost differential come into play?  How long...

    How is the PS4 cheaper?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 11 June 2013

    We are led to believe that the PS4 is significatly more powerful (for harware launched near simultaneously) than XBOX one, and how GDDR5 RAM is much more expensive.  Microsoft will have a higher percentage of Live subscribers than PS+, thus greater subsidies for the hardware. It seemed that Pachter, wrong more often than not, and wrong even on his price predictions, did predict that the PS4...

    New PS3 Bundle at 299.99 implies no price cut for console?

      Does the new GTAV bundle at 299.99 imply we will not be seeing a PS3 price drop anytime soon?...

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 11 June 2013

    Will the XBOX One DRM lead to more exclusive titles and superior 3rd party support for Microsoft? We all talk about the benefits to 3rd parties and the cost to consumers for the XBOX One's DRM, but if not superior 3rd party support what's in it for Microsoft? They will lose sales to anyone who does not have high speed internet right off the bat.  Also, there is negative publicity and loss...

    More likely to happen first for PS3

    Which is more likely to happen, or if both, to happen first? PS3 surpass Wii in Globall Hardware Sales or PS3 surpass XBOX 360 in Global Software Sales...

    Will Non-Gamers buy XBOX One (or PS4 or Wii U)

    in General Discussion, last active on on 27 May 2013

    Most of the commentary about Xbox One (aside from the suspicions surrounding used games, "always" on internet access, and the spying Kinect) has been around how Microsoft is targeting non-gamers.  My question is does anybody believe that many, or even a handful of people, will actually buy one of the next gen consoles and not use it for gaming?  I just don't see it.  It reminds of...

    Who would you like to see enter / reenter the console race in the next gen?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 29 March 2010

    I hope there is a new entrant to avoid more of the samesville next generation.  Nintendo offers the console experience most radically different than the previous generation (ironically the console itself is the most similar).  A lot the games Nintendo develops are strikingly similar to last gen (Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Mario Kart, Smash Bros etc.) in their game play, and many are not...

    Best Controller Options - PS3?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 29 September 2009

    After TGS, am I the only one who believes that the PS3 will have the best control options available by Christmas of 2010?   First you have the standard controller which can handle virtually any game designed prior to the Wii.   Next you have the wand which could handle all Wiimote only games with dramatically improved visuals.  I realize that the wand is a straight lift of the...

    the novelty of wii

    in Sales Discussion, last active on on 03 March 2007

    I have to admitt that Wii sales have caught me by surprise. I still believe that Nintendo is essentially selling a console with a toy as a controller and the novelty will wear off. I would say maybe Christmas '08 will be the swan song of the Wii. What does everyone else think? Will this new control type hold up for the entire generation or will people get tired of it? I can say that I am...

    June shipment forecast for XBOX 360

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 29 January 2007

    "Following the release of its earnings report, Microsoft held a conference call with analysts in which it downgraded shipment projections on the Xbox 360. During the company's CES keynote address, Microsoft touted a total-systems-sold figure of 10.4 million. In a press release the next day, the company's interactive entertainment business corporate vice president Peter Moore sent out a press...

Xbox 360 - $279.99 former premium bundle w/ HDMI XBox 360 - $379.99 120 GB HD, built in WIFI The XBOX 360 is hardest to predict.
