To me it seems like they are trying to double dip. If I buy a game, go online and play it for a few months, and then sell it to omeone else and they go onnlie to play, there is no difference in the server cost beyond adding that [lyers tats to the game. I'm simply giving up my reserved slot to someone else.
It's like the Other OS fiasco again. Whe they came out with the PSN, it was free. You have the game, you go online, no fees, you just enjoy it. Now they're saying "Oh actually, now you have to make sure it's a new gamely purchased game or you're out of luck." If they were so worried about the cost of maintaining servers and the like then they should have factored tht in to the cost of the console or the should have made the service into something like Xbox Live. As for the markeing speak, how is decreasing the number of players available forplay enhaning the experience?
I've had just as much fun with Donkey Kong Returns as I had with the SNES series. Great game. Same goes for Mega Man 9 on the Wii Store. Bionic Commando Rearmed was good fun as well. It is possible to make games like they used to. You just have to look at the plethora of indie titles that are available on the Wii Store, XBLA, etc. Super Meat Boy anyone? That's Nintendo hard.
Now I need to go and get some paper towel, because the sarcasm is dripping down my monitor and all over my desk!
It'll be Microsoft's less effective version of AdBlock Plus and NoScript?
Like some actors, he's just getting into character.
Yes, that is very true, but it's a new company releasing it now. The same guys that did Borderlands. There have already been playable demos this last year.
Um, Duke Nukem Forever has a release date now, May 3rd, 2011.
This is off topic, but I have to ask: Your username, is it Wheel of Time related?
Well, of course it was noteworthy. The quark-gluon plasma never would have been noticed if one of the Canadians hadn't dropped maple syrup in to the Collider.
What the Hell is a Bateria? It's not like Midichlorians, is it?

Don't you mean "sudden 'jailbreak' of common sense"?
Anyone else hoping to see a splotch of green in the Antarctic besides me?
