Submission + - Scientists Discover New Bearded Monkey->

Jaymi writes: Scientists Thomas Defler, Marta Bueno and Javier García have
discovered a new species of monkey in the Caquetá region of southern
Colombia. Using a GPS to traverse the upper Caquetá River, García
found 13 different groups of titi monkeys. The Callicebus
caquetensisis is about the size of a cat with grayish-brown hair, but
is missing the white bar on its forehead common to other titis. It's
most distinct feature is its bushy red beard. However, the news of
this discovery is tarnished by the fact that the titi faces
extinction. It is estimated that less than 250 Caquetá titi monkeys
exist.

You need to look at it from the game publishers' point of view.

They pay thousands for developer licenses and SDK's. To them, homebrew just flies in the face of that. Some kid can write a really fun game in a couple of days and never has to bother with any red tape.

I'm not saying its right, but that is why.

Old mail has arrived.
