Lost Odyssey To Span Four DVDs

scolen2 Re:Fallacious argument (69 comments)

First: You can't read Second: There is apparetnly a update to the HD DVD drive for the 360 sometime next year. Being in teh HD DVD industry i know this is a good thing for compatablity, cuase the 360 is a horrible HD DVD player, but perhaps they might be using this to create support for HD DVD game titles too! What is the limitation of why they can't play titles right now off that drive? Is it only software or is it hardware issues?

PS3: To 60GB or not to 60GB, that is the question!

scolen2 scolen2 writes  |  more than 6 years ago

scolen2 (956819) writes "With Sony's announcement that they have shipped all remaining 60GB playstions there is one very importaint question. To buy a 60GB PS3 or wait for the new revision. Since the 60GB is the last that contains the emotion chip, no further PS3s will have close to 100% backwards compatability, however i've heard these games look horrible since they aren't anti-aliased when scaled up to HD. So could the new software emulated PS3s look better, and will there be enough support of past games to make it worth waiting?"

scolen2 (956819) writes "Dear Dell, HP & Gateway, Why do you continue to ruin my Christmas every year? Every year at Christmas time while my family is enjoying themselves around the Christmas tree, I'm stuck in PC repair hell thanks to you guys. Its not that your hardware is bad, and it has nothing to do with how evil Microsoft is, it's just that you choose for some mysterious reason to clock up the potentially smooth running cogs of every PC that my family has. I then have to sit here fixing each and every one of them as quickly as possible before I leave to go back home. Why PC integrators, why? Every year it's the same thing; one family member gets a new PC while I'm busying fixing all the problems with the one someone else got last year knowing that I will be fixing the one just received this year all next Christmas! You make baby Jesus cry and or give me cancer with your selfish acts of computer pollution. Please stop; please let me have Christmas next year in peace. Thanks, Steve."

scolen2 (956819) writes ""Sony executives made the scheduled announcement this week at a media event in San Francisco, where they also indicted that the bulk of PlayStation 3's titles will sell for $60 or less. Among the hotly anticipated games for the new console are franchise staples, such as "Madden NFL '07," "Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion," and "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas. Another issue that has analyst wondering how popular the PlayStation 3 will be is cost. The consoles will be priced in the $500 to $600 range, more than $100 above Microsoft's Xbox 360. However, not all things associated with the PlayStation 3 will be expensive. Sony has said that its online and network service for the PlayStation 3 will be available for free. The Xbox Live online service costs $50 for annual subscription fee. The PlayStation Network will offer game-related content, downloadable games, and demos. Players will also be able to establish an online profile and purchase content from the PlayStation store, including classic games for $15 each." http://news.yahoo.com/s/nf/20061020/tc_nf/47204"
