MTV Multiplayer: "Did I promise I'd share my thoughts on "Tomb Raider: Underworld" in today's diary? I did. Sorry. I'll get to that in a post later today.
This morning, I need to vent about a minor aggravation.
Why can't Nintendo and Sony learn from Microsoft? Why can't their firmware and channels and dashboard circuitry and upgrading rules and regulations be as elegant as the Xbox 360's?
Last night I wanted to play "Resistance 2." But my game needed a patch. I learned this by trying to load it from its disc. An alert appeared. I needed to give permission for the PS3 to download a patch to the game. Fair enough. But every patch for a PS3 game - I downloaded yet another one to "LittleBigPlanet" over the weekend - requires a wait that's long enough for me to get up and do something else. Like check the mail or wash a few dishes. Xbox 360 title upgrades, on the other hand, happen in an eye blink. I could hold my breath for them.
This is not ideal."
