Google-Microsoft Crossfire Will Hit Consumers

The only way to be taken seriously on this board is to spell correctly. You had a good argument until your spelling knocked you down a few notches.

Microsoft, Blizzard Crack Down On Piracy, Cheating

ruprechtjones "Major Nelson", possibly off-topic (150 comments)

Yes I work in the games industry, so there is your disclaimer. But having a grey-haired accountant as the spokesman of your games division really says a lot about how much you take your customers and your own division seriously. This guy is actually not bad to work with and I have recommended in the past that he go after a broadcast career, but I simply do not see how he appeals to anyone under 46 or how he can be the front voice of one third of this industry. Even Chris Paladino (might have spelled that wrong) is clearly a better choice, at least you can see his passion in his videos. You want to give the hardcore players someone they will listen to, not give the Microsoft middle-managers someone they love. There is a huge difference there. I have no clue if Sony or Nintendo have an equivelent to this guy, but when I think games, I don't think of a middle-aged white guy. /end rant.
