    Some Problems I would like to talk about

    in Website Topics on 26 March 2007

    I haven't logged in for a while (well, I did try once but decided against posting when the board seemed overloaded) but I thought I'd put up my two cents on your third point. I don't believe permabans should be applied as quickly as they have been. I'll admit that Kwaad made the forums a bit unpleasant from time to time, and the volume of propaganda that he posted all over the board was a bit...

    What is a hardcore gamer?

    in Gaming Discussion on 04 March 2007

    We'll have to continue to disagree then. I like fresh new games, ones that aren't the same thing over and over again release by release. The vast majority of what's come out is a lot like everything else. That's understandable, the companies know the formula and there are enough people to buy them. That doesn't mean I like the tactic. Sure, some games like RPGs are great regardless of play...

    PS3 20 gig Discontinued

    in Sales Discussion on 04 March 2007

    I'm guessing some people buy the 20gb only if the 60gb isn't available. Unlikely at this time, as availability is fairly common. Others probably buy the 20gb unit as a gift for someone who wants a PS3, the purchasers themselves not knowing the difference in capacity and capability. Regardless, stores know that those who want a PS3 are looking for the 60gb unit. Why stock what people don't...

    Well, again, we're discussing availability. The 15% availability number is helpful, but the rest of your post is just argumentative and off topic. When there are enough units, I'll be happy. So will the people who don't want to get ripped off by scalpers, but also don't want to wait in line outside a store to have a shot at buying one. Remember your experience waiting in line to purchase a Wii...

    Getting rid of Kwaad would make the forums less interesting. There should be people who can competently discuss their console of choice, regardless of which one it is, if we want a balanced discussion. I often wish he'd concentrate more on positive arguments for the PS3 rather than negative arguments for all the other consoles, it would certainly reduce a lot of the less useful posts, but getting...

    Wii vs PS3 sales:

    in Gaming Discussion on 04 March 2007

    Afroman813: Really, that's enough bashing of other members. Isn't there something useful you could be posting about? Chubear: You were using gross sales data. Net profit figures are more useful than gross sales figures when it comes to determining how a company is benefiting monetarily from a console, which along with installed base is a more important benchmark. Determining the cost of...

    Just an observation, aside from possibly being a bad example, this discussion devolved into a direction that has little to do with its original intent - to define the hardcore gamer. Surely it could be continued in another thread if we truly want to debate the relative merits of the Wii's input devices. ...

    I agree that people shouldn't be posting messages like "Die Kwaad". There's no good reason for this; it's not helping anyone's argument, and adds an unfriendly element to the debate. That being said, you do put every bit of Wii news in the worst light possible for Nintendo, and the best light for Sony. Even if the news has nothing to do with Sony, it creeps into your posts. You should expect that...

    For the Target locations in my area, it was definitely a Sunday launch to go with the new circular. I'm willing to support the idea that the Bay area is an anomaly, the economy is good and there are a large number of people here. Still, there are clearly people lining up for the console. If it's different where you live it wouldn't surprise me - you have stated that they have been readily...

    Here's an interesting Craigslist posting: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/ele/288309262.html It seems to support the theory that demand has yet to dry up. There are, as expected, a number of new postings there from scalpers selling the consoles for between $300-$500. How many consoles do you suppose it's going to take before the Wii becomes generally available? [Edited for a typo]...

    Out of curiosity, how's Wii availability showing now? I just checked the Target tracker I've been following. It appears that they're sold out now in my area except for one store, which has limited availability... Which basically means if you're not already in the store, you won't get one. The store's probably 30 minutes from where I am, I'm not even going to try... ...

It's almost impossible to do headshots and the like in red steel.[/quote] You're using the term generation outside of its original meaning; it is indeed the next generation of console from Nintendo. As for the pointer's accuracy, I'm guessing you probably bought all the wrong games for the Wii. My...
