Not every country is America though, broadband in India is defined as 512 kbps and higher speed plans (max commonly available is 16mbps) top out at 80-160 GB I imagine many countries outside of US and Europe have slow and restricted internet, and having full disk based games would be awesome for them

Comment Now, combine it with the /. error rate (Score 5, Funny) 200

A /. article mentions that Wikipedia has an error in 90% of medical articles
Now, keep in mind that /. itself has an error in x% of news items posted here
So, the actual error rate of Wikipedia medical articles should be (1-x/100)*90 % shouldnt it?
Assuming it is actually 90% would lead to the conclusion that /. has a 0% error rate...
