Unskippable commercials even for shows you record as they air. Yeah, I'll be quitting Comcast then.

I think the answer is to make clever commercials people will want to watch. Like super bowl halftime ads.

So the answer is to make clever commercials for you to skip over?

All the Battlefront games were slapped together. It still pisses me off to no end that LucasArts sicked their dogs on the team making a Star Wars mod for Battlefield just to release this total turd of a series.

Well, to each their own. I, on the other hand, enjoyed the series(the non-portable ones anyways). I was stoked about the third game.

No one uses Media Player to watch DVDs is the reasoning. Microsoft has the telemetry to prove it. Never mind the fact that most OEM's have included DVD playback software for years.

Exactly this. The only time WMP gets used is when some file-type association hasn't been changed from my OS install.

And since Virgin Mobile rides Sprint's backbone, I get great coverage.

Virgin Mobile has terrible coverage outside of major cities. Sure, their service is provided by Sprint, but they don't roam.

1997 called and they want their beat a dead horse topic back

Not that I don't agree that people can be a little sensitive(sometimes) to the DRM issue, but 1997?

I don't think DRM has been a games issue for that long. I would say Windows XP release, sure. But not when everyone was slinging around Windows 95 and a dial-up connection.

It isn't the pricing, it's the app sales.

From what I could understand in the source article, this was only counting device sales. The big profit from Apple was all the money the carriers were giving them from a new device sale. And yes, the iPhone is definitely overpriced.

People calling it a flop before the first screenshot is out are presumptuous idiots. It may well flop but we know nothing about that yet.

Presumptuous, yes. Idiots, no.
Let's pretend you've never had an apple. You are given 5 boxes of apples from 5 different growers. Each apple in each box makes you throw up. Are you excited and hopeful about a box of apples from a sixth grower, or are you skeptical and jaded and wish that all apple companies would grow oranges instead?

...so, down with Apple!

Totally unrelated but that new Sherlock series on BBC is damned good television for anyone looking for something new to watch.

Not only is that show great, but Watson is Bilbo and Sherlock is Smaug.

They should make a game based off of that show.

Headline needs to be changed to: "70% of PSU.com's poll-taking readership will not be getting a Vita"

From what I can see, and this is assuming that most Vita owners are also PS3 owners and that most people only own one system, the adoption rate is roughly 1 in 60 so far.

Just for funsies:
If you were to apply the same logic to the Wii and the 3DS(granted, it has had a little more time to shine than the Vita), the adoption rate would be almost 1 in 6.

These, of course, are going mostly off of shipped systems as listed on wikipedia.

I would be surprised to see a full blown AAA MMO announced from Bethesda just after the launch of Skyrim.

It's the perfect time. It'll be 6 months past the release of Skyrim, so everyone will still have the game somewhat fresh on their minds when they announce it.

On the PS2 version of BG2, the God-King of Mulhorand called for the sun chariot. I've been waiting in anticipation ever since. Bring it on, Horus-Re.

There is no PS2 version of BG2. There was Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance 2, but the Dark Alliance series is a separate deal.

Well, seeing as how the first news about the port I heard in forever was that the game was released, I don't doubt that they covered the game's marketing costs within 2 days.

Development costs were probably just the costs to port from the console to the PC which couldn't have been much.

Some TVs have two different modes for HDMI. One is PC, the other is AV. Also, sometimes the stretch(over/underscan) option is on in the Catalyst Control Panel and that muddies it up and makes it look like crap.

Nice! This game is crack. If I didn't have other responsibilities (wife, kids, etc...) I would probably have died from sleep deprivation playing it.
