Microsoft's Risky Tablet Announcement

joerdie Re:Year of the tablet (338 comments)

Apple will sell a ton of anything at this point. I think the real issue is that tablets fall into the chicken/egg situation. With the iPhone, even non apple people wanted a phone that could do all of that.

joerdie Re:A Mimic Device Is Precisely What They Want (338 comments)

I too only have a Wii but my brother owns both a PS3 and a 360. I can say that games look a ton better on the PS3. My complaint there has always been the buy in price but that starts to stray from the topic.

Thats a really good point. If the market can find more uses like that, it shall succeed. I currently have an HP tablet that I really love... but never use in tablet mode.

I'm not sure that I agree with you. While I do not have any experience with th Zune, (but have heard great things about Marketplace)the X-Box 360 is NOT a quality product. It has a failure rate above every console ever released, the max graphical capability is above the Wii but well below the PS3, and it's online play costs the consumer money.

joerdie Year of the tablet (338 comments)

2009 was the year of the netbook, 2010 will be the year of the tablet. The problem is, tablets are so niche... and the normal consumer doesn't know.

Croal vs. Totilo - The Manhunt 2 Letters

joerdie Re:Environment matters (42 comments)

AO does NOT mean that the game cannot be released. It means that most retailers will not sell it in the store. This kills the profit of the game if it can only be sold in porn shops and mom and pop's who wish to seel it. Also, and I may not be 100% correct here but, I think that I read that neither Sony nor Nintendo will allow an AO game on their platform.
