Sony Bringing PSN Pass To All First-Party Games

Tobias Lobster Good for buyers, bad for sellers and stores (271 comments)

Looks like the people who lose out here will be either the stores (used games no longer sell for as much) or the people who sell their used games back to the stores. And seeing as the prices paid by stores for used games are already shockingly low, I doubt they could take another $10 off the offer price.

As a buyer, I should get the advantage of an extra $10 discount on the used game if I don't want multiplayer. And my choice is nice and easy - if the used game isn't at least $10 cheaper, I'm not buying it. Right now in the UK it's quite common for the used game to only be $3-$5 cheaper than new.

Vodafone Backs Down In Row With Android Users

Tobias Lobster Re:Could be worse, it's only hardware (106 comments)

I was all ready to get fired up with righteous indignation, but I just tried visiting B3ta from my Three UK mobile and there was no issue.

I'm on a standard contract, never had Xseries, not paying the extra fiver. Want to list a few more sites you're having trouble with? I'll test them out here, could help getting unblocked for free if other customers aren't having the issue.

Where Are the Joysticks For Retro Gaming?

Tobias Lobster Re:XArcade. (262 comments)

Very much agree about the XArcade, it's a really nice bit of kit. The only downsides are the price and the amount of space it takes up. I bought one years ago with the intention of using it as a removable controller on a Mame cabinet that I never built.

Sony Opens PSP Store on the PC

Tobias Lobster Re:Is all the TMing needed? (25 comments)

Oh, I don't mind a logo screen that takes a few seconds, especially if I can press a button to skip it or if it's there while something else is loading, but waiting for a publisher's logo to load just so I can be advertised to isn't what I want.

Today I noticed Lev13than has a line from a Moxy Früvous song as his sig (or hers, but Lev13than seems more a male name, and this is Slashdot after all). Früvous were an excellent band (and hopefully one day will do some more stuff), so on those spurious grounds I chose to tag Lev13than as a friend.
