If natural is taken to mean the common sense of anything that exists in this world, a supernatural thing acting/observing in a natural world, must be natural by definition. And this is more than trick with definitions: On what does God base his decisions? It's on a what he sees, which means he is as limited by cause and effect just as everything else.

+ - EA CEO: Games are too expensive->

Submitted by
rprins writes "EA's CEO John Riccitiello thinks current prices for games are too high. The game industry can not expect consumers to keep paying $59 for games, according to him in an interview with Fortune. The industry will have to reevaluate its business model. "In the next five years, we're all going to have to deal with this. In China, they're giving games away for free." More and more publishers will make the transition to online distribution and EA will experiment with different pricing models, he expects.
In the same interview, he also says the media are to blame for characterizing video games as more violent than images shown on cable TV on a typical Sunday night, referring to Kill Bill, CSI and 24. "The desire by the media to censor games amazes me.""
