The author here seems a little bit offended that they weren't awarded some grand prize, other than a YLoD'd PS3. Give credit where it's due, man - you lent Stanford U your processing power, not your brain or years of education and research, or even grant money to fund the research.

I used folding@home as a passive-aggressive means to stick it to my landlord for sticking me with owing an extra month's rent at the end of my lease. Long story, but doing a littl... #2

No...

Just because someone doesn't visibly react negatively to that doesn't mean that they consented for it to happen. #1.10.1

Look at all the legal scholars here! What are you people doing online?! Get back to your law offices!

There are a lot of things here that aren't being considered. Such as the fact that these girls had a camera shoved in their faces, which could act as a bit of coercion, which affects consent that everyone is so eager to point out.

The motorboating issue - he asked her, she agreed to do it. The fact that he asked in the first place...how many other pe... #1.11

Companies make up the loss with accessories, warranties and licensing. So Sony might have sold the Playstation 3 at a loss, but made up for the loss with accessories and games. #2.4.2

@ knowyourstuff

Wanting things to be less expensive is not a concept unique to gamers (or young people at all.

Your comparison to the iPhone is flawed, as well. An adult, working a full-time (or even part-time) job, has a larger amount of disposable income than a young person working a paper-route or no job at all. The percentage of their disposable income compared to how much they bring in total might be smaller, but they still have more money to spend. <... #1.1.3

Just because another sector of the market is eating into portable gaming doesn't mean that Sony or Nintendo should abandon it.

I can't think of any modern cell phone that doesn't have a camera, but there are still point-and-shoots on the market. Or a better example would be that DSLRs still exist and sell well. There will always be a market for dedicated handhelds. Both Sony and Nintendo's issue is that they haven't pushed the consumer into wanting one... #6

How do you know that it's not going to be scary? Are...are you from the future?

I mean you can turn off the co-op, and there's obviously more to the game than what we've been shown. #8.1.1

That's true, however not everyone does. It should be one of those required things. #11.1.1

I would rather they get an education. Turn them into productive members of society.

You might wonder why I would afford them something that many people sadly don't have access to. I'm from Canada, a place where prison sentences are notoriously short (if existent at all). I believe that offenders will continue to offend if they have nothing to rely on once they're released from prison. If they have no education, if they have no job prospects or experience, if t... #11

As a hobby-journalist (read: I don't get paid), I try my best to avoid rumours and speculation. However when I do post them, I post them as such.

If it's a rumour, then state it as a rumour. If it's a speculation piece, then state it's a speculation piece. When you try to pass this stuff off as actual news, you not only discredit your name, but the site you write for too. #10

The Telltale Heart was one of the freakiest side missions, right next to the side quest with the record player. #20.1

As awesome as it would be for Team Silent to make a triumphant return, people need to realize that it's just not going to happen. They've moved on with their lives, are focusing on different projects, and they don't want to come back, or they would have done it already.

Besides, even if they did come back and make a game, that's not an automatic guarantee that it will be any good. Some people hold Silent Hill games to an almost unattainable standard. And I... #1.1.3

Video games need to understand 'people' both men and women. They need to understand human interaction a little better. #1.1.2

Coke font for the logo. I guess that makes me hardcore at brand recognition. #20

Fascinated by how off the wall it will be.

That statement kind of made me scratch my head too. #8.1

"...a few game..."

How many? Three? Four? Two of them would cost you over $100, plus a controller was $50. #1.1.7
