No. They'll have to maintain the $60 model, for xbox games at least, since they will be selling so many fewer of them after this.
I was just wondering the same thing. I won't buy most games unless I can rent them first and try them.
So, MS is saying you have to just buy the game, no more trying it out first. Oh, and you have to buy it at pretty close to retail price too, even if it is used. You can't borrow one from a friend to try it out (my son does that all the time and we go buy the ones he likes). You can't take them to someone else's house for a game night.
I guess I wont be getting an xbox 1
According to http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/smitten?s=t, you're ok with smitten. However you should probably be a bit more specific about which definition you mean. One would be rather amusing to see, the other sort of disgusting in a beastial sort of way
And, I'm not sure the llamas would appreciate either
Especially solar cells that keep getting holes punched in them
To regularly spam the people you want to get to donate money to you.
Still no literal "bearded man in the sky"-style deity though.
What!? No beard? All those pictures and statues and stuff are wrong?
I say bullets and grenades, because why else would you care to track indoors
Because the days of pitched battles across huge areas are falling behind. The modern battle field is getting more and more urban (that would be indoors), and where it isn't urban, it is often underground or inside caves
... now we'll have crazy smart bullets to take care of the terrorists, that's right, the terrorists in their caves
Actually, the point of doing this would be to save American lives and not needlessly endanger them. I'm sure they aren't very worried about people disobeying orders
I, for one, welcome our internet connected, email sending, fairly penguin overlords.
Having lots of people means nothing if you can't get them there. The Chinese navy is pretty much none existent, at least as far as what they would need to mount any sort of invasion of Taiwan or Japan. Even a very small US Naval force would be sufficient to prevent them from having any sort of success.
Korea would be the only one they could have a chance of doing anything with. And even then I'm sure North Korea would have a thing or two to say about it.
In reality you'll get modded down because right after you say that you'll get modded down you go on to insult the very people doing the modding.
And, what the hell is a "DO NOTHING HAT" and how did it get in the way of a powerful economy?
Sure charge everyone a hundredth of a cent for each email, assuming my account doesn't get hacked, I'll need to pay a penny or two each month. No problem.
Politicians should be required to prove they have a minimum IQ and a certain level of common sense before being allowed to run in an election
Unfortunately the president is no longer capable of making such an address. Shortly after being informed of the North Korean threat he was found on the floor of the oval office, unconscious. Apparently he had been laughing so hard, not only did he pull a muscle in his abdomen, but he was so short of breath he passed out.
He woke once briefly, on the way to the hospital, and is believed to have said something about nuclear weapons, and not hitting barns while being inside them, at which point he began laughing again
As several dozen other people have mentioned crappy docs account for a lot of it, the fact that Stack Overflow comes up first in most searches is a lot more of it, but another factor is that, in most cases, devs aren't looking for a technical definition of some API method. They are looking for a solution to a problem and the way technical docs are written they don't lend themselves to those sorts of questions unless you know the method that you need and can go right in there and find it.
And then hope that it has some sort of readable description and possibly an example. Otherwise, it's off to what ever site actually has a post by some who has used that method and can tell me how to use to solve my problem.
Yep, the US government is hacking the Chinese military in order to steal all their valuable, state of the art, highly effective, totally awesome
US government: We need you to hack in to the Chinese military and steal all their secrets.
Hacker: Sure thing, I'll get right on it.
Hacker: Here you go, there was quite bit there but I got it all.
US Government: perfect, you've done your country a great service
US Government: You hacked the wrong country, these are all our military files
Hacker: Dude, it was from China, it was all right there in the folder named "R sekret stuf that we didnt get from noone else", behind the folder labeled "Taiwan Invasion plans"
US Government: Ok, well, errr thanks, I guess we have nothing to worry about.
No, it's negative publicity what's illegal. If you want people to buy your stuff, promote it. Don't put the others down.
Dude, have you ever seen one of our political campaigns? Any law like that has exactly zero chance of ever getting passed here. Or the politicians would need to actually campaign on their own values and accomplishments and not by trying to manipulate the truth and facts so that no one has any idea of who said what or went where. Plus it would put all the super pacs out of business and also it wou-*
