"By your logic PC isn't a hardcore games machine"
It isn't. PC is a general purpose machine that can play games, but it's a far cry from a games machine.

"How dare Microsoft add even more functionality to an already great gaming system what the heck where they thinking! "
It's not about the functionality. Nintendo and Sony have similar amounts of non-gaming related functionality. It's the focus that's different. Sony... #76.2

I don't see how any of those companies are relevant to this argument, and VC-1 is a video codec used by -some- of the publishers, not all.

I'm loving the Xbox defense force here. The conference was crap - they announced a GAMES console and spent 45 minutes of the conference talking about TV.

I look forward to seeing more at E3 of this console, but to claim that the conference was good just because they showed the box is just silly. #229

Sony owns patents on the BluRay technology which means Microsoft has to pay royalties to them for every Xbox they sell.

I wouldn't go as far as saying that it really means much in terms of who's going to 'win' the next generation though. #224.1.1

lol @ 4.9 TFLOPS

Also lol @ the people attempting to use TFLOPS as a measure of power.

This article (and its comments) are amusing, but no more than an ignorant fantasy. #102

@Root

Sales numbers prove if a game is good or bad? Just Dance must be an incredible game then, and Psychonauts and Shenmue must be terrible games.

I bet Zero Punctuation and TotalBiscuit sold out to Capcom. In fact, I agree with you that Capcom spent millions to pay reviewers to give high scores. That's far more likely than, you know, it actually being a good game that you just happen to dislike. #1.3.5

You should really have another look at how statistics work Steve. 3000 people is representative of all gamers with an error margin of about 5%. #20.1.2

"they do it still because it's hugely profitable despite their claims as to otherwise."

You see.. There's one problem with that argument...

A survey over 3000 people is actually pretty representative of at least a very large segment of the population.

Secondly, it doesn't matter who put up the illegal version of the game. Software is sold by license, not by copy, and therefore anybody who downloads and uses the product without a license is effectively stea... #20.1

Lol the only reason it's coming to Microsoft's press conference is because Microsoft wants to give us the same press conference they've given us for the past 4 years.

The problem with this tech is logistics. They state in the video you need to put a projector on your coffee table. What does that mean?

1. You're going to have to buy a projector for this to work
2. You're going to have a projector on your table
3. You'll have cables running over your table and floor

Whilst I'm aware you could hang it on your sealing, or place it somewhere behind you, it would still imply a significant pain with... #8

So I suppose I should also boycott Tomb Raider because they're running a campaign with Rustlers at the moment. #4

But the question is - was the problem actually solved? Do the hackers not have access to the service anymore, and was the loophole sealed? An hour seems like a terribly short time to do so. #1.9.7

and Battlefield, Medal of Honor, Need for Speed, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Command & Conquer, Crysis.

The company has countless franchises that perform exceptionally well in the market - like you said, EA isn't going anywhere, but it's not only because of their Sports branch. #3.2

Oh a vocal minority spent hours making sure EA would win the polls. Must mean the company is doomed!

Short answer to the question posed: No.
Long answer: Nooooooooooooooooooo. #7

That's not the point the article is making. Staying independent and making fewer games would not have been profitable for the company - that's the entire reason they were bought by EA in the first place. #6.2

I think you misunderstood (perhaps didn't read my whole post). I never said _all_ gamers are narrow minded, I said we get that reputation because of a very vocal, very sad minority.

The backwards thing is that that minority is the same minority that also shouts they want to be taken seriously and treated as adults. #3.2.3
