With all the data-mining Microsoft and Google does... they should be sued too.

More like Google's business idea, which is based off ad revenues. At least Microsoft's cash is still coming from software sales

You are forgetting Bing. Also the XBone is supposed to target ads though Kinnect spying. So, MS is just as bad as Google, if not worse in some ways.

EA insists it's not favouring Microsoft over Sony.

That's ok... I'm not favoring Ubisoft over EA for my PS4, either.

Yeah... but you can't squeeze blood out of a turnip. Suing broke folks seems like even more of a waste of taxpayer's money.

Nvidia didn't get into the consoles so they want to optimize everything that comes out that can be played in their discrete video cards.

This is basically true. If all of the future console ports run better / are optimized for AMD cards (Because of the PS4 and XBone)... then why would someone buy a new nVidia card as their next graphics card upgrade? (Besides a fanboi/gurl)

nVidia HAS to do something to remain relevant and "level the field" for future console ports.

Bethesda ‘pushing’ Microsoft on playing Elder Scrolls Online without Xbox Live Gold subscription

Yeah... that'll happen.

I'm still not buying an XBone... nor Windows 8.x.

Not even if they bring back the Start Menu?

Actually the pseudo start menu in 8.1 is good enough to me. The built-in ads / bing search, and the flat (non-aero glass) look... turns me off.

Personally i hate both F2p and subscription models, I wish they came out with a subsciption BASED on how much you play. So i buy a 10 days of game time, i can play literally for 10 days whenever i want, skip a few months go back finish off the 10 days i bought whatever. Really suprised noone has came up with something like that yet.

Back in the Meridian 59 days... you paid hourly, which was spendy.

But yeah... buying a block of hours (Like 10 days worth) would be a good idea.

Not a chance in hell that I'd buy this without a free trial first. I'm done getting burned by MMO's false promises and bait n' switch tactics.

Launch, in this context, does not mean "the day the game is released", but rather, "the first time you load the game to play."

Right, when I said first launch I meant when you first launch the executable, sorry should have been more clear.

Ditto.

While this is a move in the right direction... it should be 24 hours after first launch of the game or even 24 hours after actual download... I buy games on Steam Sales and don't get around to playing them for weeks, due to backlog.

And yes... there are a few games in my library that I wish I could get a refund on.

I'm in my late 40's and I don't Facebook, or Twitter, or My Space, or Google Plus, or any of that shit.

I just post on a few gaming forums, and that's it.

EA settles with weapons maker over Battlefield 3 vehicle names.

1. Weapons makers don't demand license fees from movies, why are games any different?

2. Why are the weapons makers even making a stink at all? It's total free advertising. Do they WANT EA to rename the Apache to something like the Seminole?

I agree, but on the same line... why do games have to license car names and models? Again it's free advertising. Folks like to play racing games in their favorite cars.

I have had the 8.1 preview up on a machine at work for the last few weeks. I'll admit that it's way more tolerable than 8.0 (once you tweak it to be more desktop oriented).

I still can't stand that flat look. I want Aero Glass back, or even a classic windows 2000 look.

As for the Modern UI vs. Desktop... they still have some twaeks they need to do... Like when I'm on the apps screen (pseudo start menu) I shouldn't have to re-click the start button or the desktop icon to get back to the desktop. In other words... there are still annoyances for a desktop user.

I have to admit, I do like the ribbon explorer... setting shit is much more convenient. However, that doesn't make it worth upgrading.

How does it do that?

After around 30 days, the steam icon in the system tray disappears and you can't launch your steam games anymore without going online (then going back into offline mode again, if you want to stay offline).

Microsoft accuses Google of trying to sabotage Windows Phone.
I don't think Google needs to help MS in that department at all. They do a helluva good job sabotaging themselves...

...with EVERYTHING!
