GM Names and Fires Engineers Involved In Faulty Ignition Switch

luther349 Re:Ignition switch not the main fault (307 comments)

dunno what you mean you can control a stalled car just fine. its just you lose power assist in the steering and brakes. so it may take a bit more muscle.

Sony Winding Down the PSP

luther349 psp owner hear (85 comments)

well winding it down makes sense they haven't made any first party games in years not sense vita. and its been off the shelves nearly as long. the main issue of course was in its 10 year run it had very few must buy games. the hardware for the time was epic it pretty much was a low res ps2 in terms on how far they could push the games stomping the gba and ds into dirt in terms of raw power. the main issue was in fact sony when something good did come out sony never even tossed ads it was for the psp. some of witch where games like crises core metel gear peace walker Resistance god of war and so on thers a pretty good slecten of awsome ones. it also had tons of jrpgs and even a phantasy star mmorpg well 2 of them and portable 2 was pretty dammed good. but it also got alot of trash that nobody would whant to buy or play much like the original ds did. also the main reason psp kept getting titles end of life was the fact vita sales suck and still do and most vita owners are playing original psp titles due to its own lack of games. and yes fps fans did hate the fact it lacked dual anlong or so they calmed yet i don't see vitas flying off the shelves lol.

luther349 Re:I call BS (343 comments)

it may be cheaper and cheaper but your bill wont rember they have contracts with your county that lock out all competition. the same for at@t if you went to dsl and normally those 2 tend to work together to totally shutdown a area from free market. look whats going on right now we are actually having a fight over weather or not they can block sites or content complete with them trying to pass a bill to essentially kill off the fcc in keeping them in check.
