    Gran Turismo 5 will fail to sell...

    in Sales Discussion on 04 November 2010

    Without a big bundled deal it will not get anywhere near 8m. Another thing most people dont consider is Forza stole some market share permanently due to differences in gameplay. In the ps2 days there really was no competition given the ps2's dominance. This gen is very different. I also know a lot of people who didnt like prologue so I am not sure if that release helped or hurt them....

    Article: Kinect to "Crush" Move

    spynx said: Most of these articles are based on hype, rumours and scams the befell the media daily. If a survey is conducted in forums, you wouldn't get as much as the hype has transcended. Consumers would take a different approach after a week. The X360 is the hub for hardcore FPS and has nothing to do with casuals. Leave this gimmick for nintendo.

    ... you know I am arab and lived there most of my life and the author of this post is full of it. Hijab to hide from servants? Hijab because the husband wanted to hide his wives out of jealousy (to prevent them from getting any attention from anyone ever in their life) is 10000000x more likely. You think that somehow, muslim men of old were more enlightened than the rest of the world in their...

    Is Sony too large fo a company to go bankrupt?

    in Sony Discussion on 13 April 2010

    RVDondaPC said: 268.43 X .28 = $75.16/$32.41 = 2.32 (8/08) 270.75 shares. If you reinvested all dividends back into Sony stock you would currently own 270.75 shares of Sony Stock. At a current price of $36.81 that gives you a value of $9,966.31. I believe your method was the simple initial 100 shares at $6.20(the $6.20 is used to keep it consistant with my numbers), Split to 200 shares...

    1. Fallout 3 (the best open world WRPG since Morrowind, tons of fun but much better on PC)Tie 2. Mass Effect 1&2 (WRPG with excellent story telling and fun gameplay similar to KOTOR)Tie 2. Dragon Age Origins (excellent WRPG similar to classics like Baldurs Gate and NWN)3. Lost Odyssey (my vote for best JRPG this gen so far)4.

    Anno 1404 and Torchlight - Any good?

    in PC Discussion on 27 February 2010

    Torchlight is a little boring but for the price of $5-$10 its well worth it.Anno 1404 is good but Anno 1701 is 100x better because it has multiplayer and we have had tons of fun playing on LAN at home. 1701 has comparable graphics and plays essentially the same. I would stay away from 1404 until they add multiplayer which may never happen....

    Is Natal the 360s last hope?

    in Gaming Discussion on 28 January 2010

    Dont think so. Natal needs to have a few games behind it to make a huge change this gen. A lot of HD gamers will probably not care for any sort of Wii type set up. The Natal will lure some casuals over to the 360 but the hardcore gamers will not move unless you give them a great game. If you can pull off games like Halo with that thing then the sky is the limit and you can bet that ninny and Sony...

Exclusives have huge appeal (ME, Lost Odyssey, Fable, Forza, GoW, Halo, L4D, & others)4. Focus on gameplay > graphics (yes frame rates do matter to many of us)5. Online social aspects6.

    Are you happy with the direction of the videogame industry

    in Gaming Discussion on 18 January 2010

    Nope. Day of reckoning is coming and long overdue.- games plain stink and are getting dumber and dumber every generation. This will eventually lead to stagnation and eventually a huge market shrinkage a la Atari era.- no innovation in game design and gameplay aside from possibly the Wii but the games havent really been revolutionary imho. Fun in multiplayer perhaps but they dont have any games I...
