    GT5 first week numbers. How do you think it did?

    in Sales Discussion on 04 December 2010

    I think it did really good considering the quality.  Remember that this is a game averaging a lower score than a short-dev-cycle need for speed game (85% vs 88% on gamerankings.com) and a variety of disappointed reviews that complain about worse-than-expected AI, corner-crash racing, poor damage modeling and racing physics that are still inferior to those in the Forza series.  That's...

    Rumor: Apple to make huge acquisition, possibly Sony

    Sony: MS will always win when it comes to money

    in Gaming Discussion on 25 May 2010

    Seece said:I wonder, if Microsoft went on a buying spree for studios, would that be classed as "stealing"? That depends on who you ask. Obviously, no.  It's fine to buy loyalty.  MS is buying into franchises, in many cases -- such as the grand theft auto stuff.  The publisher sees the profitability and success on the 360 and says, "wow, this is going to be our lead...

    Wii is now up YoY in every region. Significant?

    in Sales Discussion on 30 March 2010

    I would say it's probably not significant yet, and it may have more to do with world wide economic recovery than software. Later this year, however, I think software will begin to boost the Wii quite a bit -- it will have a better 2010 than 2009 in terms of overall sales, but it almost certainly won't touch 2008's numbers....

    Which HD console will reach 60m first?

    in Sales Discussion on 07 March 2010

    This generation has peaked and is over four years old. I think we'll see sales slow down for all three consoles from here on out, but it will be especially tough for the 360. I doubt the 360 will reach 60 million and I'd give the PS3 a 50/50 shot of making 60 million before this generation ends, and if they keep the PS3 around for a half generation after this, it may reach 75m or so, if they...

    Forza 3 to have launch day DLC.WTF!!!!!

    in Microsoft Discussion on 07 October 2009

    A_C_E said:Why not just include it on disc 2? Turn 10 are trying so to get the maximum amount of sales they can get, which is understandable, but they are doing that at the expense of the customer. They are basically saying that they hate their customers who like used games because that's obviously what the DLC's insentive is, is to buy the game new. So they just say they're gonna play...

    Obama Disses Xbox Again

    in Microsoft Discussion on 08 September 2009

    Obama is young and hip, so he refers to video games as "Xbox". If he were older or not with it, he'd still refer to video games as Playstation, a throw-back to when Playstation was still synonymous with video games....

    Zelda WW Poll - RESULTS

    in Nintendo Discussion on 27 August 2009

    melbye said:The problem with ranking Zelda is that all of them are so damn good. I had problem placing WW actually Same. I'd probably put it near the bottom, but looking back at the Zelda games, I can't help but think the first two Zelda games are simultaneously awesome but the worst of the set.  The first Zelda allowed you to do anything, go anywhere right at the onset. ...

    FF6 (FF3 on SNES) is by far the best Final Fantasy game

    in Gaming Discussion on 27 August 2009

    Agreed -- the games before Final Fantasy 7 were the golden age of final fantasy games.  I really tried to like Final Fantasy 7, but I just couldn't enjoy it.  The kiddie / high school aged love triangle was too much garbage for me to swallow and the game play and fantasy just weren't as good. Final Fantasy 2 (4 in Japan) was fantastic as well.  The SNES age was definitely the best...

    PS3 profitability -- Breaking down Kaz' statement

    in Sony Discussion on 25 August 2009

    Torillian said:You are assuming that the slim costs as much to make as the regular PS3, which seems like a silly conclusion. You didn't read my post.  I assumed that the Slim cost some amount less than the PS3.  Although, it clearly wouldn't cost $100 less.  And any estimate on the PS3's cost to Sony isn't a conclusion.  My conclusion was that they've still been...

    PS3 profitability -- Breaking down Kaz' statement

    in Sony Discussion on 25 August 2009

    Here is the quote from Kaz: [quote]"If you're just talking about the hardware alone, the quick answer is yes. That makes good headlines, but I don't actually know that that's the true nature of the business that we're all in, whether it's PlayStation, Xbox or the Wii. I think the better indicator is to look at the business as a whole platform, to ask: are you profitable in terms of the hardware,...

    Some Blu-ray statistics. "It's popular, not getting cheaper"

    in Sony Discussion on 18 August 2009

    dtewi said:50 million in three years? I'm sure DVD sold more than that. That depends on whether or not you count the PS2, probably. But, no, BD is not being adopted as quickly as DVD.  That much is clear.  And in china, it looks like BD is losing to their high def format. Part of the issue is that BD movies are too expensive.   Most people have tons of HD these...

    Joystiq thinks it will be more expensive.Also, who cares if it comes with an HMDI cable? Those cost $4 or $5 shipped. Most people I know have a pile of extra HDMI cables. The only reason it wouldn't come with an HDMI cable in the first place is if Sony wanted to be bastards about it....
