    Reuters: Expert Finds "Security Flaws in Sony's Networks"

    in Sony Discussion on 14 May 2011

    There is a big difference between not running up to date software and having data available for public browsing that shouldn't be. Both can be true at the same time and the latter is the reason this is taking so long. Updating  a server is far easier than doing a full audit on a system that size....

    3DS sales slump below DS - why, and what Ninty can do to fix it

    in Nintendo Discussion on 26 April 2011

    I know from a new generation standpoint this may seem wrong, but really, what is the problem? People were upset that the DS was being replaced while it was still selling strongly and now it is still selling well. As long as people still are buying the DS at $130 Nintendo should keep the price at $130. This is similar to the PS2 PS3 situation at the beginning of this generation with one important...

    Rumor: Apple to make huge acquisition, possibly Sony

    Why am I the only one who zeroed in on the Adobe mention in that list? To me that strengthens their position more than any of the others. It would give them a pretty tight grip on online content....

    Climate Change Deniers/Skeptics or Believer?

    in General Discussion on 28 September 2010

    Chrizum said: It's incredibly stupid to deny climate change. It is real, as the Earth has had climate changes for millions of years.This also means we probably can't do much about it, but that doesn't mean we can just keep fucking up the planet. If anything, we should be glad people finally are realizing we should save our planet (albeit only a little and for all the wrong reasons). I came...

    Report: Kinect requires you dress appropriately!?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 15 July 2010

    As has been stated, this won't be an obsticle in prolonged periods of play, because if you are going to excersize, you want to be dressed appropriately, the issue will be in introduction. A friend comes over and you say "hey try out this game I just... oh nevermind..." This type of marketing is huge for motion gaming. Skirts and suit jackets will not serious hamper it, but if there more...

    MS: Hardcore will buy Kinect first!

Why haven't the TV manufacturers simply placed a second screen (Glasses) over the origional screen to give all viewers the 3D effect without the glasses. May make the TV alittle more...

    The "How did Nintendo pull off 3D without glasses?" Thread.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 27 June 2010

    In order to get 3D you have to get a different image to each eye. Just putting a lens in front of a screen would not be sufficient unless that lens somehow was tied to a viewers individual eyes. I don't know the technical details, but the way I understand it that it is similar to privacy screens for computers where only the person directly in front of the screen can see and people peering at an...

    Kinect only supports two players, Move supports two-ish

    in Gaming Discussion on 20 June 2010

    1. It is marketed as a three player game and the average consumer won't know the limitation?! The average consumer won't be sold by the internet at all, they will be sold because they played it at someone's house. The limitations will be apparent. 2. As a Wii owner this is nowhere near as bad a problem as the arbitrary limitation of one Balance Board. It has still been pretty...

    What's your opinion on the vuvuzelas?

In addition, as someone mentioned above, they are...

    Zelda was pushed back to refine visual style, says Shigeru Miyamoto!

    The Ghost of RubangB said: Guys, the game controls sooooo damn good.  I don't care what it looks like.  The fact that it's very beautiful and has its own unique visual flavor is an added bonus.  I can't wait to see the more evil areas in the game, and how they use this style. I'm pretty interested in this too. What we have seen is probably early in the game, and while the...

Ever.   Also the Kinect port is a power supply, so you don't have to plug the camera into the wall. Thanks...
