    Hmmmmm……. you know i always thought a gaming console was all about…you know…gaming. i guess microsoft is really trying to make the xbox brand known for being nothing more than a multimedia hub.

    WTF do they need TV adds for!?
    what, the fortune M$ is making on the 360 and XBLA subscriptions is not enough?
    sigh, this is exactly whats destroying the industry!
    suddenly the rolls royce they drive is suddenly not enough, they need more cash for the 7 mistresses, and friends.
    greedy SOBS!
    all i can say is BRING ON THE VIDEO GAME CRASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    only then will publishers stop this bull shit and start appreciating what they have!
    as the saying goes you dont realise what you have till you loose it!

    nope, of the year!
    ;)
    no seriously, im just freaking sick of this greediness crap!
    day 1 DLC, online passes, DLC locked on the disk, developers “noobifying” their games for the sake of gaining more customers.
    i miss the good old days where developers would make the game they wanted, not the game they think will sell!
    developers have just lost their ambition to push the industry forward, all they want to do is make the big bucks!
    its disgusting, so many times you hear people complain about games and they reply well it sold well.
    so?
    that makes it sound like ah it sold well so we dont care if people like it!
    randy pitchford for instance, he left his home and moved to texas when he was really young so he could work on duke nukem.
    its his calling, his life hood, so he should be ashamed to put out forever in the state its in!
    then people say it sucks, and his response?
    eh, it sold really well!
    thats all you care about?
    you dont care that the series you left home for is any good any more?
    id be mortified if i rebooted crash bandicoot and i had fans tell me my reboot sucked!
    its disgusting, manufactures just dont give a 2 hoots about the quality of their games any more!
    as long as it brings in the $$$$$$$$$$ who cares!
    id MUCH rather make a game that sells 1M units and has a meta score of 9/10 and fans love, then a game that sells more but has a meta score of 6/10 and has fans spitting at me.
