    Wouldn't be Valve would it? Gabe Newell is a fat gluttonous lazy pig.

    I have no issues with Sony trying to develop new techniques that provides a better gaming experience, but I do have issues with developers who do not even try because it is 'too hard'.

    It's scary because the 360 doesn't particularly have anything 'new' in it that it should have so many faults.

    DING DING DING!!! We have a winner!

    Sony, has a long history of making really great products really well... then giving them the kiss of death by making everything proprietary. the BetaMax, the MiniDisk, the MD data disk.. don't they have some issue with stupid DVDs also?

    (I never paid attention to that HD/BluRay fight, as I don't friggin care about video resolution).

    it's like they sit around and say, "Look at this wonderful and creative new technology we have gone through great pains to research and develop! If only we could find a way to make it useless and offensive to our marketed demographic!"

    UMDs have (for some reason) taken off and Blu-ray has apparently sold then DVD did at the same stage.

    Problem with vista is that some games just won't play on it. The games won't convert to XP. The red storm games like ghost recon and rogue spear don't play. the quake games don't play. I have quake 4 and it is useless.

    When I first got my comp with vista the hardware was accelerated so you tube videos played too fast and music all sounded like the chipmunks and movies played too fast also. I tried every possible remedy and there was none because you can't make adjustments with vista. WTF! I was miserable and there was no answer. It was only after a routine HP upgrade that this was fixed automatically. I was ready to throw the damn thing.
