whodunnit Re:News at 11 (75 comments)

Over 700,000 of them sold in one day on black Friday, so yes, I'd say that qualifies as popular.

Yes like my ipod touch, that for one update i had to PAY to get the upgrade, and now is completely un supported. Yep... apple rules. Oh no, wait.. the suck. And that's why I bough an android phone.

And you don't have to root your phone to get an update, but you CAN.

APB To Close Mere Months After Launch

whodunnit Re:Woah, economics (185 comments)

*my ac post got downranked for some reason.. so logged in*..

I'm not sure where they got those figures, but they were dead wrong. At any given time the past two weeks, there were maybe 300 people on my server. And there were only 2 NA servers. So.. 600 people in the entire country playing.

    Also, they had an in game way, to sell in game cash for RTW points which you used to pay for the game. So after buying the game I never put another cent into their pockets as I could sell a nights's worth of cash farming for a month's worth of play time.

I loved the game, and am sad to see it go, but I've been calling that It was going to die for the past month or so.

Activision Wants Consoles To Be Replaced By PCs

whodunnit Re:Console vs PC Gaming Experience (344 comments)

0*. Buy new graphics card, ram, and cooling fans to be able to run latest game.
0.1* Patch game several times, and download drm crack so that the game runs correctly.
2.1* Game crashes. download latest drivers for video card.
3.1* Game crashes again, new patch is not compatible with old saved games. Start game over.

7* Realize 15 years later that you can't run said game because their drm servers are no longer running and you can't find a copy of the drm crack.

I could keep going.

Activision Wants Consoles To Be Replaced By PCs

whodunnit Re:Bobby Kotick again (344 comments)

Not really, most pc games take advantage of the extra power by not bothering to optimize their games to the hardware at all, thus you have games on the 6 year old 360, looking nearly as good as on a brand new 1K machine because they've spent the past 6 years wringing every ounce of power out of it, instead of saying, meh.. they can buy a new graphics card ever year.

Intel 45nm Processors Waiting to Clobber AMD's Barcelona?

whodunnit Re:Whatever... (302 comments)

15 years you say? AMD wasn't even remotely competitive until 99 when the Athlon came out, hell in the early ninties when their "crushing of intel" began... according to you, they weren't even designing their own chips yet, they were just reverse engineering Intel's.

Even since the Athlon came out, there have been may back and forths in price and performance.

And FYI, I happen to buy which ever processor is better at the moment, which Is why I own some from both companies. I just hate fanboys like you.
