In short, MS got caught up in its own hubris and they realize it now. And as much as it may gall them to swallow their pride and admit they were wrong - which they'll never do anyway and just call it a "readjustment" or some such marketing BS - they pretty much have to or it's all over but the crying.

Which is totally ironic, considering how hobbled the PS3 launch was by price, hubris, and their various comments (people will work extra to buy a PS3, Trenton saying he'll pay money for people finding a ps3 in stock, etc)...

I can only hope that sony remembers the hard lessons learned...

Sorry for your family's loss, Blue.

Could Disney finally give us the remastered, unedited Star Wars we want?

Maybe they should hire Harmy! That guy is my hero right now...

Did you watch Star Wars: Turn to the Dark Side?
It condenses the 3 prequels into a single 2:45. It's pretty amazing how watchable and even better it is. The 1st one is almost gone entirely except for the Darth Maul fight and the Jedi council discussing taking Anakin on as an apprentice (don't even see the kid). You still have to go through most of Hayden and Natalie's terribly written/acted romancing but it has to be there to setup his turn. Seems like most of the third movie is there except for the pointless action at the beginning. Really through out the three most of the removed material is around the pointless Galactic Republic vs. Trade Federation stuff.

I managed to grab the middle, 800 meg one, but there was also a multi gig mov that I've yet to find anywhere (it got pulled first)...the 800 meg was just too low res for me. Been checking around, hoping someone uploads the mov this morning, but no luck, so far...

Let me know if you find it...I did find it pretty humorous how abrupt the ending is, avoiding that whole "nooooooo" incident completely.

I once ordered a cable that was labeled as retail. It was really inexpensive so I had my doubts, and when it arrived it was OEM. I mentioned this in a review.

Shortly thereafter I got a phone call (wtf) from the seller pleading with me to change my review, proclaiming I was endangering his livelihood.

Ehm, so basically you complained for getting something of equal quality cheaper? Because that's what you did. There is no physical difference between OEM and RETAIL, but for the seller you mentioning this in amazon reviews brings up a huge legal issues and potentially blacklisting from Amazon store.

Also, it's pretty weird customer behavior to complain about that.. considering the seller saved you actual money.

Are you trollin? If it says retail package then it better be a retail package not some shit in a ziplock bag.


Pretty much that exactly. The item sold needs to match the description exactly. And any good seller knows that.

OH. MY. GOD. This is SO AWESOME:

Web host gives FCC a 28.8Kbps slow lane in net neutrality protest

Seems like more of a PR grab than anything, but it's a shame it won't catch on with others...

Company That Threatened to Sue Negative Reviewer Just Lost Its Amazon Account.

Rather amazing they try and play the victim, after threatening to sue someone if they didn't alter/remove a review.

Glad amazon told them to fuck off...

Another article on it here.

You can always take an update or three off. I know you won't, but there's no need to apologize.

Every time an update is late, I always fear the worst.

Hopefully a night out for the brother's b-day. But yeah, I worry a little, too. That would normally constitute an early evening update - not that we need one.

Glad they came to their senses on driveclub...

And I think that footage for Sunset is the same as last night...I sent it in right before you ran the evening stuff, so I just assumed you already had it...

You WANT to be nickel and dimed for maps and mutators? Do you not remember the diablo auction house?

I'll breakdown and get BioShock when I can get the whole game in one purchase.

And speaking of Shock and bundles... this weeks Humble Bundle looks really tasty, especially for old school RPG fans.


Good call! Their store also has DX:HR Director's Cut for $5.

I enjoyed Burial At Sea more than I would have guessed. Not $20, maybe $10 though...

OK, Overdrive is the first xbone game I'm interested in.

But I'm still not buying one.

Best of luck to them.
When they've hinted a revival of the UT franchise this clearly isn't what I thought it was going to be.

Pretty much the same here. Zero interest now.

Oh well! Not like I don't have a huge backlog of other stuff to keep me busy.
