Activision CEO Warns Sony That the PS3 Needs a Price Cut

Derek Loev Re:What % of people will buy with lower prices? (149 comments)

Uh, if you just want casual games, gaming consoles aren't for you anyways.

This doesn't make sense to me. Gaming consoles *are* for the casual gamer. I always thought PCs were for the hardcore gamers.

Minnesota Latest To Try To Block Gambling Sites

Derek Loev The bottom line... (138 comments)

People that say games like online poker are the same as gambling simply don't understand online poker. Over the long run (hundreds of thousands of hands), variance will no longer be a factor and the better players will win. It's similar to the stockmarket, and definitely a better investment then a lottery ticket. Look at communities like twoplustwo.com where thousands of players talk strategy and learn about the game, it's not gambling.

Google's Chrome Declining In Popularity

Derek Loev Re:I thought it was in beta (489 comments)

Well, I think we all know that beta doesn't really mean anything to Google. In fact, that may be why a lot of people stopped using it after the first few days. Google has created the reputation that their beta products are pretty much fine-tuned and user-ready (gmail for example); but in Chrome's case, it really isn't up to par (at least so far) with the rest of Google's applications and people's expectations.
