And people wonder why so many gamers listen to Malstrom.. His predictions continue to manifest themselves before our eyes (at least his gaming predictions). Just like he predicted, more and more 3rd parties are getting burned by their cheap ass shovelware, since the expanded audience is smarter than they anticipated and not buying into their "casual division" crap, so now they are all retreating to the markets they feel safest with; the HD market. But in the end I believe this will be their downfall if they focus too much on the distant 2nd and 3rd place consoles, with the rapidly increasing development cost coupled with the declining of the core market.
Actually, Malstrom has maintained all along that nearly all 3rd party support would shift to the Wii, leaving the HD consoles short sticked for the remainder of the gen. This was also the belief of most of our users in here but now the opposite is happening. Malstrom is a religion in here (the seams of his celestial being have been torn rather heavily lately though, with his crazy rants and pompous use of the index finger and know it all attitude everyone is starting to see him for what he is) and I bet he has a shrine dedicated to himself and his glory at home as well.
I'm sorry for the rant but the Malstrom worship needs to end, he does not know more than the rest of the world combined, he's probably some college blogger who's attended a couple of semesters of business classes, he certainly comes off as one.
