Games Analysts Weighs In On Console War

felonious There's no fucking way (194 comments)

This all bullshit speculation. How can someone, say what he's said, especially with the current state of things? PS3 is getting it's ass kicked, hardcore. They can't sell the things at current prices. Fanbois are the only ones buying them. The rest are sitting on shelves, wasting space. When Japan drops the price on the newest PS's then you know there's a serious problem. has this guy even read all of the backlash out there, as far as, people wanting a gaming system and not a next generation DVD player?

Hmm, do trends even matter?

I have a feeling Sony is now paying people to write up baseless bullshit like this guy.
Does anyone actually know a person who wants a PS3? I don't and my friends are all gamers.
Same reasons, as for not wanting one....
1) Too expensive
2) Don't need/want a Blu-Ray player
3) No games
4) Too expensive

The Blu-Ray vs HD-DVD is also pure speculation
More trends -

http://www.google.com/trends?q=blue-ray,+hd-dvd&ct ab=0&sa=N

Personally I believe HD-DVD will win or both formats with coexist because -

1) HD-DVD is cheaper to manufacture
2) Porn has chosen HD-DVD as it's main format
3) Blu-Ray is Sony's format - this makes, some people hate it, period.
4) Much more expensive to manufacture

Blu-Ray's only plus is more storage, but don't we have way too many, trivial extras, on movie disks and do we really need 1,000,000 cgi-cutscenes, in game? Blu-Ray space is only a plus on the pc storage side of things.

Anyway, to paraphrase, that article is total bullshit....the end:D

Virtuousness

felonious felonious writes  |  more than 7 years ago

First off, I hate Tom Cruise:D With that out of the way, I'll get back on point...
Last night I finally decided to watch "The Last Samurai". What an amazing movie.

Movies like that and "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon", are so incredibly beautiful, in terms of the virtuousness they present. I can't even imagine living in a society, like the ones presented, in the previously mentioned movies. I love all of my technology, gear, and all of that, but when it comes to the big picture, and what matters, none of what I possess, materially, is worth a shit.

I'm an American and we seemed to have cornered the market on cons, lies, trivializing life's important subjects, mass consumerism, environmental destruction, selfishness, thinking we're better than everyone else, to ad nauseam. I really have no idea what it'd take for our perverted, I don't mean that in a sexual manner, society to get a grip and start to look at the big picture, to care about more than what we own and what's on t.v. We are doomed if we continue along this route as we are resting on past laurels, while ignoring our shortcomings, and not over-coming them. There are many countries who are taking over many facets of science, technology, world leadership, etc. We are a nation of lazy, spoiled, fat, rude, know-it-alls, who need a wake up call. The funny thing is I don't see this happening, nor do I see an event that will make it happen.

If you take a look and learn about numerous other cultures out there, you will see they want to learn more about the world, as a whole, instead of never sticking foot outside of their country or trying to learn something different than what was taught in their homeland. We need different philosophies introduced into our society, different, outlooks, different political systems, as apposed to one that is based on politicking and not what's best for the country. I loathe democrats and republicans, equally, because they are always trying to one-up each other instead of taking care of business. That's another issue, altogether, but it's part of the problem.

Our society is the worst when it comes to personal responsibility. There's nowhere else, on this earth, where you can go, without being responsible for your own actions. This is endemic to our society and it's a national embarrassment. With our national program on irresponsibility comes our addiction to frivolous lawsuits and always trying to work the system. Do our citizens know, or even care, that we are known for these things? Our previous generations took pride in the things they did, no matter what it was. As it stands we have fast food workers who can't even be polite to paying customers because they don't give a shit.

People better wake up and start to realize that the US isn't immune from being a ex-super power. The way we're going with our lazy, prescription addicted, McDonalds eating, up and coming(oxy moron) generation, I can only say we are doomed. I say this because no one seems to give a shit any longer. We could be great again is we could instill some virtuousness, work ethic, and personal responsibility back into the equation. I'm sorry to say, those seem to be, all but distant memories.

R.I.P. What we used to be.....

Work

felonious felonious writes  |  more than 10 years ago

I went to work today and everyone was looking at me in a weird way. I finally asked someone "What's the dealy yo?" and they informed me that I was not wearing pants. This is the 3rd time I forgot to put on my pants for work and I find it somewhat troubling although it saves me from having to do laundry as often...

New Term : Cock-Sucking Grammar Nazi

felonious felonious writes  |  more than 11 years ago

Cock-Sucking Grammar Nazi:

The user who trolls around slashdot looking for words that are spelled wrong and/or bad grammar...if there is such a thing. This is the type of person who believes Star Wars Galaxies is a real place and they are part of that community.

They also run weak ass gaming sites like this one Shiite Hole with basic html as done through a weak ass GUI. Play a real game you little bitch and learn to code a basic web site. Ever heard of js, xml, dhtml, flash, or any language for coding web sites that's come out in the last 10 years? How about something dynamic or interactive?

You might also want to learn how to use photoshop/illustrator/imageready so you can design something that doesn't look like a child created it. Fucking llama..

Hitting for the cycle

felonious felonious writes  |  more than 11 years ago I have a coined a new slashdot term. "Hit for the cycle" In baseball it means to hit a single, double,triple, and homer. A natural cycle is to get the hits in order from single to homer. At slashdot it means to score a 1,2,3,4, & 5 on different comments in the same day. To further this is you "hit for the natural cycle" then that would mean you scored the comment numbers in order.

Cheesy Haiku without the formatting or adhereing to it's law

felonious felonious writes  |  more than 11 years ago We live on Earth which is a planet in the solar system. We've also been to the moon. Warren Moon played football. Warren G. is Dr Dre's half brother. Half.com is owned by Ebay. I own with the Railgun. I've been told my Railgun is above average. Slashdot is no place for the average, non-analytical, non-independent thinker. I think there for I must end this. This is the linear end. Linear this!
