reason I think we'll start to see larger corporations start to get in on video gaming. Viacom, Warner etc etc etc will all start to see this as a market they need to get it on.

Poeple still tend to think gaming is "dorky" yet, this proves how mainstream it really is.

What do they expect.Have you seen the quality of movies that have been coming out for sometime now?absolute rubbish.

spider man 3 and pirates of the caribean 3 where supposed to be the biggest movies of last year.After watching them at the cinema, i felt rubbed.But compare them to the blockbuster games of last year and you can see why people are moving towards games.

And this is news? I've known games were better than anything Hollywood's been putting out for the last several years. I only go to the theatre like once a year now, and sometimes not even that. Most of the junk concocted by Hollywood is just crappy, lousily written tripe and a bunch of remakes. Games deliver an interactive, fun experience that, believe it or not, is actually worth the money you pay. Movies these days aren't even worth the film they're recorded onto.
