it did but depends on what your comparing; units vs overall sales. overall, gross sales it killed everything in revenue generated due to the fact that video games are that much higher priced than other media.

btw, i didn't buy Modern Warfare 2 and never said it was awesome just that the claim console video games are dying is absurd. if anything, its growing due to the casual market. us core gamers have always been a given but the casuals bring another sect to the game. sure, they won't buy games like us core gamers but they still buy games and were consumers that prior to this generatio may have never bought a video game (ie wii market).

no kidding.

WTF are these people reading?? console gaming IS ANYWHERE FROM dying. pc gaming? now thats more relevant.

also, um anyone heard of this crazy thing called the world recession???

so modern warfare 2's largest launch in the history of media/movies/music means nothing?? yea, who pays these people? 12yr old gamers on 2ch would do a better analysis than these people (sure there may be a few flame wars started).

agreed on MCE.

i've used many of the other DVR/PVR applications (MythTV, SageTV, Nero, etc) but none have worked as smoothly as Media Center, Windows 7 MCE really brings its A game. :)

i have a remote and IR blaster and mainly use mine to record just network tv; i can also easily access any of the recorded tv shows over my homegroup on any of my other Windows 7 laptops/netbooks and even my PS3.

MP4 movies look and work well inside of MCE too (atleast on Win7, vista had a few issues w/MP4/h264 codecs since it didn't support it natively). I run MCE on my HP laptop and use a MCE remote i got with my tuner card. Netflix plugin is really well done too.

imo, that generation should die off in the next 10-15 years and give up its 'old world' ideaology.

seriously, are those in control at the studios that ignorant and blind to the current world?? really???? (remember, they are the majority generation in power at the moment) we really need more geeks in the corp seats.

just my .02.. and to think i've been playing by the rules; fuck these guys for trying or even thinking of doing that. it seems like they are trying to take over society (the music/movie industry).

first they start suing the hell out of everyone

second they start lobbying govts across the world to basically BAN people from the internet (ie like taking books away from a 1800s person) for downloading a product they most likely would have never purchased to start with and was not offered in a convenient/stream lined way

third they take over the govt by becoming a part of it.
