Yes it is common sense.

And it's not just what she wears but rather the combination of what she wears to what place, at what time, and at what situation. Wearing that outfit to bed with her husband wouldn't make her a slut, but wearing that outfit to stand on the corner of 42nd Street probably means that she is a slut, and wearing that outfit walking around Afganistan is probably going to get her killed.

By the way, wome... #4.1.8

I buy used but very rarely, probably 1 out of 10 games, I buy used. Even then it is mostly stuff that is more than 6 months old. I almost never sell back. I still have Soul Calibur 2 for the Xbox 1(the real "1"), and KOTOR.

But the point here is not really the behavior of the consumer, it is the value in having the option. Options to buy or sell when and if you want to, have value, that's why they trade them on Wall Street.

Which girl should I choose...

The one who was always loyal and honest.

OR

The one who cheated on me with my best friend but has since stopped, when she saw that I was going to leave her over it.

You don't get points for fixing things that are a blatant violation of basic policy and trust. Microsoft came into this generation with the intent to abuse their loyal fans. #4.2.5

Nobody would have bought into the DRM if they had been given the option. Well, not nobody but almost nobody.

Nobody is going to pay for a game that they can't sell back, when they can pay the same money for a game that they can resell. People do that math in their head instantly. No one would buy the DRM system if they had the choice to buy a system with no DRM.

Microsoft was hoping to use its brand loyalty to coddle / force... #1.2.5

No, the problem wasn't the messaging, it was the message itself. There is no way in hell they are going to get my money and then own the game at the same time.

I don't care who they are... Microsoft, Sony, Valve, Nintendo, etc. #1.1.10

Indeed, horsepower does NOT equal speed. There is A LOT more to it than that.

Every man should know that....

...And so should every person that plays, Gran Turismo, Forza or even Need 4 Speed. #1.2.4

"How were you not in control of your game? Were you only allowed to play when MS said so? Or wat i dont get it . Please explain"

What's to explain. You would have had to check in with Microsoft in order to play your game that you paid for. You would not have been able to transfer all the rights of your game to another person.

Actually is a misnomer, to say that You(or I) would not have been able to play you... #2.1.4

@Lukas

Obviously he doesn't know that KZ:Shadowfall exists if he thinks that the PS4 can't produce anything close to what the XBO is doing out of the gate.

Actually, Uncharted 1 edges out all of the best looking 360 games. All the rest of the games you listed are overkill.

The Sony first parties probably are going to make games with better graphics this time as well. However, with the PS4's main advantage being RAM bandwidth I... #1.10.3

Pachter is wrong about gaming more than he is right, but his last quote from the source article is how Sony should frame the decision. Pachter said,...

"I’d rather have a console and a hundred bucks than a console. That’s how most people look at it"

Sony should put that in commercials. #1.7

MS wasn't sending MIXED messages about the Xbone; they were sending BAD messages about the Xbone. And it wasn't bad PR; it was the horrible truth about the Xbone. Microsoft hasn't changed the XBO's PR, they have changed the underlying truth, it's not as bad as it was when they announced it.

But clearly Mattrick did not have a clue, otherwise he would have stopped the bad policies before they got as far as they did. #1.4.2

Actually price would be the bigger indicator of video games sales. The cheaper consoles sell the most.

Seeing how the PS4 is $100 cheaper than the XBO and will have mostly the same games, at the beginning at least, I expect the PS4 to outsell it by a good deal....at least if Sony can keep up with increased demand. #4.1.9

More like they are tired of make these huge investments to keep the company operational.

However, I think the Xbox is the only place where Microsoft has a foothold in a growing market. Assuming, of course, that they don't squander the foothold with ridiculous Xbox One policies. #3.1.1

Actually, it's more like they must not understand gaming or the gaming market.

The Xbox has had a major mess-up every time. The first Xbox was a plain failure. The 360 got bailed out by the combination of Microsoft's deep pockets and of Sony pricing the PS3 a full $200 higher than the Xbox was at that time. The Xbox One jr. is facing a myriad of problems and looks to be on the route to follow the Xbox 1 sr.

If the Xbox division were to be spun-of... #2.4

Errrr....Sega was in the business before Sony and got put out of the console business. If Sega was any better they would have shown it then. #1.1.4

Still I agree with the guy who argues the Microsoft has to exist somewhere in consumer entertainment devices. PC's are becoming more and more commercial devices. The only hardware that Microsoft has ever had any measure of success with is the Xbox 360. So Microsoft has to stay with the Xbox. They just have to find a vision that will work for it. The vision that they had for the Xbox One is definitely not it.

It's not you.

Either Microsoft is having manufacturing issues, or Microsoft underestimated how difficult it is to get its voice recognition software to work in every country in the world.

Now I can not imagine how anyone could possible underestimate something like that. There are A LOT of languages in the world and each language will have multiple regional dialects. How any adult could think that is anything but a gi-normous task is beyond me. #1.8.1

Microsoft wouldn't be rushing their console release would they? Only releasing in 13 countries, Kinect only working in less than half of those countries, and half the countries with a working Kinect being English-speaking all sound like a system that needs more work to me.

If I didn't know any better, I would say that Sony caught Microsoft off-guard by announcing that they would release the PS4 this year and Microsoft has been rushing trying to prevent the PS4 from... #1.9

@ Tony-A

I bet those reversal did do a lot for them. The the pre-orders that came in immediately after E3 were probably the most hardcore fans who would not be deterred no matter what.

We would have to look at a chart to see how the pre-orders came in week-to-week. I would be willing to bet that they slowed to practically zero (0) after the initial burst and only started to move after the reversals.

Still, if the PS4 wins the US by 2 to 1... #1.1.11
