Considering the PS4 is about equivalent to my 3 year old PC you have to wonder what kind of PC hardware they use at Epic. Maybe they should upgrade some of their PC's.

Well if it wasn't for the exorbitant fees charged by LA, SWG would still be in existence and of course we can thank them for the destruction of such with the release of the nge version.

Good riddance!

Where do they find such idiots like Joe Wilson? Tablets are nothing but toys at this point. What you can do on them beyond games, is so limited it is not worth mentioning. So far most of mine have moved down to the young where they play lots of games, even the college kids find little use for them. Like one college kid told me, you can't even keep class notes on them.

Right going to fund a game that can't even control the cheaters. Not likely!

Oh and I believe they spent somewhere in the teens to develop it, don't think any MMO has spent close to 200 million on a MMO including Star Wars.

Too little too late. EA has cut the funding big time.

The way the make you pay through the nose for some of the heroes is going to turn a lot of people off. Stupid design decision will cost them.

Oh and it is not even close to being a MMO, you cannot make you own avatar, you have to use theirs.

Bioware is no longer Bioware, it is just the old EA with a Bioware skin. Hard to believe such a great shop can go down the tubes so fast.

Pretty much shows that many of the distributors of his works are still living in the dark ages he writes about.

Jordan sucked huh? Well I beg to differ, he was as good as Martin is.

Well I went through 3 Samsung phones before my son gave me his 3 year old iphone 3gs which still works great and have had no problems with it. I am sold on apple quality at this point. Won't be getting another Samsung that is for sure.

Read the article, it is not just about farmers it is about everyone. If you buy anything, copyright law can prevent you from touching it. -1 for reading comprehension!.

"Kerry Adams, a family farmer in Santa Maria, California, recently bought two transplanter machines for north of $100,000 apiece. They broke down soon afterward, and he had to fly a factory technician out to fix them.

Thatís a problem for farmers, who canít afford to pay the dealerís high maintenance fees for fickle equipment."

First farmers and crying woe is me is a lifestyle, they are some of the richest people in my part of the world, their daughters have the best of everything and look like Hollywood models on top of riches. But that is the secondary point.

This is an exaggeration as "soon afterward" those machines would still be under warranty and those techs flew and fixed on their own dime. Now down the road...

As we say around here, "I guess the farmer should have researched their purchase more before buying, now they are stuck with Sim City."

However, overall to the point, yeah it sucks, but it also is a cost of high-tech.


Just like Beamer, you are missing the point. Point being, the equipment/tech is locked down ARTIFICIALLY. Its not something that is necessary for the tech, or something that brings down costs. Thats all bullshit, its locked down so that the consumer ends up being beholden to the carrier/dealership/manufacturer. That is the MAIN reason the consumer gets it cheaper or at rates.

Did you guys get the point of the comic at the beginning of the article or did the humour escape you?

I just went off the blurb here. My point is farmers cry, farmers rich, farmer had warranty anyway, still bitches. Farmer should have researched better.

I get that people don't like being locked down, but it's yet just another part of our lives closing in and being more controlled. I'm not happy about the gov't can secretly put a GPS device on your car without court order. I'm unhappy about a lot of things, whiny farmers is one to. One side wants to reduce gov't so there is no reigns on what business can impose on us, I am against that, f this is part of that, then burnt it down to the ground.

Zoom, people at EA are so naive. Look at the market EA, most games have single player mode and then offer multiplayer as an option. Not EA.

How clueless can you get?

Right the PS4 will outpower PC's when it is barely equal to my 3 year old gaming PC, lol. You really have to love exaggeration.

EA and Maxis two complete loser companies. Anybody purchasing from them needs to go see a head shrink.

You have to wonder how many times will people continue to let EA screw them over. I just don't buy EA games anymore. Problem solved.

I don't care how good the game is, when it has persistent DRM it is a no buy for me. Not that I don't have a good internet connect, but there are tons of good games out there without this. Why encourage EA?

Don't understand why any developer wastes time on a steampunk themed game. Just not much demand for such anymore.

Homeworld is the only decent IP left and why they never did anything with it after Homeworld II is beyond me. No wonder they went bankrupt.

No matter how you look at it, this game is still an outright scam. The forum idiots ban anyone linking to all the horrible reviews this game has gotten.

Anyone who buys this game or even plays it is an idiot because they are supporting really bad game design.

Sony just had to trump Microsoft by announcing first. They are no closer to a ready to play console than Microsoft it. Personally I will bet you will see the xbox 720 on the market before the sony ps4. Even the people who are developing for it, are only using prototypes with the understanding things will probably change before release.
