Wonder if all the sequels will take place on the same planet or if they'll find a new even better material called musthavium on the planet Leda. They'll reverse avatar some of the native inhabitants so they think they're human (they don't want a repeat of what happened on Pandora), who will brutalize the natives only to come to realize they've been manipulated by the evil corporation and they are actually the natives.

Damn this is good stuff, think Cameron needs my help with his script writing?

I saw about a million PS4s while I was out and about today. If there's such a massive shortage why isn't Ebay going nuts right now?

Ebay has been about the only place that has had them, for a severe mark up of course. It appears large shipments were sent out nation wide this weekend so for now availability has been much higher. Maybe there's been a shortage because they've accidentally sent them all to your town. Some shipping clerk puts the decimal in the wrong place and suddenly Cuttersville is knee deep in PS4s

As to Mr Tretton, the stores have plenty of PS4's from what I have seen, no shortage of supply in this area.
Interesting considering that I, literally, could not find one in our area as we were going to get one for our manager as an XMas gift. In fact, my wife who works in retail as a manager wasn't even able to get me one.

Best Buy online has bundles in stock right now.

Yeah Destiny will be history before the year is out. Bungie's group is not too bright.

Your trolling is a riot. And sad.


I managed to get one early yesterday at my local ghetto Walmart. I understand a lot of stores got relatively large shipments in this week, no idea how long they'll last. So good luck to anyone still trying to find one at retail price.

I admit its been a looong time since I've played a fighting game, but its nice to see that combos have evolved into what looks like a 2000 hit automated process.

Ugh cracked.com and their dumb lists.

Cruise may be a nutter but Oblivion was way better than it deserved to be with that weird script. At least he keeps doing interesting projects.

In a few days they'll have a list about how video games are the next biggest industry. To be fair all of the things they mentioned are reasons for some of the problems in the gaming world, they are certainly not THE problem or even always a problem. I think the emerging indy market and kickstarter funded games have the potential to change the market for the better, there's certainly not going to be a crash.

Possibly they just have a larger supply but Xbones are it stock in several places, while PS4s sellout in less than an hour anytime a place gets any.

Its fucking ridiculous is what it is. And its only hurting the artists in the end. Fucking greedy douchebag record labels...

All they want is $1.99 from everyone who hears one of their songs, anytime they hear it, even a segment, of any of the songs under their respective labels. Is that too much to ask? I mean record label execs need to bathe in Dom Perignon artists need to eat too.

Well it should be easier to port games to the PC with the newer generation as well, so i can see the 'need' to emulate being lower. Still interesting though, if they can indeed create emulators without much of an emulation performance hit (since consoles and PC are so alike now)I can see people wanting to run some of the games at higher FPS, or maybe able to apply some graphics enhancing stuff to the games.

Granted it's just a short trailer so there may be a reasonable explanation why they would deliver a response team via a halo drop (note that they say some have not been trained for it, wtf).
I really believe that if they shot it in Japan and in Japanese with clumsily dubbed English, remixed the original soundtrack from the 60's and played it at midnight showings... it would cost less to make, make way more money and have legs for a long life of DVD sales and TV licensing.
Maybe my perspective is not indicative of the reality of the market but I would love that and so would my friends. As it stands, well, won't be paying to see this one.

Probably because its more exciting than guy who saunters into city to obtain Godzilla defeating objective X?

Time to move onto Windows 9, build it off Windows 7.

Win8 is much better to build off of, just not in the UI department...there's no reason at all to build off of 7 instead for their next OS. The Metro stuff should be a side-app, and it really is if you set 8.1 to boot to desktop mode anyway. Once you get rid of the terrible touch interface on a computer that's 99% likely not using it there's nothing really wrong with 8 and it's a much upgraded and better backend platform to build 9 off of than 7 is.

As long as they don't make the same stupid, forced mistakes they did with the UI again.

If they had just made the UI you control with your ass cheeks, that the market has clearly been demanding, they wouldn't be in the awkward position of having to slowly roll back their biggest design change.

If this devolves any further we'll be arguing about the Moon Men beaming thoughts into our brains.

Damn you Moon Men! Shakefist

they arent men, they are mantis-like creatures, also they actually reside in another dimension entirely

but yeh... they like to beam thoughts into our brains

btw dont tell anyone, nobody will believe you - which is all part of their plan anyway

Mwahaha

You all think this is hilarious to poke fun of, just you wait when the Nibiru return on 2012 Dec. 21st. You won't think its so funny then!

$1000 is a lot to blow for making some people mad for a few days.

Like, I can think of a lot better ways that money could have been spent.


I’m one of these ‘selfish bastards with a lot of money’

That's all you need to know. That and it sounds like he was trying to force Bethesda to announce Fallout 4. How exactly that was supposed to be accomplished I don't know.

They need to hurry up and do a re-release of FFVI like they did with the DS version of FFIV. Or better yet update it to PS4 and Xbone capabilities. Kefka's crazy ass blowin up the world because FUCK YOU in 1080p would be glorious.

I've just been using broadcast TV for the last 5-6 years. Even after eliminating the Spanish and Asian language channels, and the religious ones, there are 25+ channels to choose from. Most of it is crap, but its free crap as opposed to paying $80 a month for crap.

I've avoided most digital music purchases precisely because of DRM, or other limiting factors. If I buy a CD its easy for me to rip it into whatever format I want so I can listen to it on whatever device I want, however many times. I'm sure there are good DRM free services out there, but I've never been bothered enough to research it.
