What a shock, a Microsoft-commissioned study shows that software piracy is out of control and costing them a fortune. They use the same type vastly over-inflated numbers to make their case, numbers which are only believed by elected officials who then come up with crap like the DMCA and punish consumers even further for having the audacity to purchase software legally.

Those NPD numbers seem like pure horseshit. The sweet spot is $299 for core gamers and that's usually at least 2 years after launch.
All of NPD's numbers are pure horse shit.

This isn't new at all. EA has been all-in on microtransactions since they started selling stadiums and uniforms for Madden years ago. If people hadn't been stupid enough to eat that shit up back then, the DLC explosion of crapware would never have taken off.

A day we never thought would come was hoist upon us without notice...

Don't they read Blue's News or visit GOG.com?

Mom accused of hiring strippers for son's Sweet 16.


Why did she choose to do this at a bowling alley?

Probably means that the things that were cut, if fully fleshed-out and fixed, could be stretched into five or six full games if published by someone like EA.

Bill Gates 'not satisfied' with Microsoft's innovations.

Funny, neither is anyone else.

I don't know if that's funny, but it is true, especially with Windows 8.

Best Buy's price-matching will only kill showrooming when their in-store selection is equal to the Internet's and they do the price matching automatically, not only when asked.

I think they want both, but they'd prefer money.

Not really a hint, more like an admission of the potential of a possibility sometime in the future, if the north stars align.

Every time I see an article on games being 'lost' on XBLA it's always based on comments from a developer whose game isn't selling very well. Maybe it's the game and not XBLA.

Translation: We couldn't get a publisher to bite, so we're going the Kickstarter route to see just how gullible gamers with money really are.

Typical Fox News tactic; when the facts don't back the story you want to present, try to get an 'expert' to see things your way.

Cliff Bleszinski to give PAX East 2013 keynote.

Why? The douche left the industry, and needs to stay gone.

Nailed it!

The evening news said Biden and his posse was meeting with the videogame reps tomorrow. I can't wait to hear all the bullshit in the media tomorrow about the terrible violent video games ruining the children.

I've continually said over and over liberals don't believe in personal responsibility, and I've been continually proven right.

Wow, wrong two times in a single sentence. Is that a record?

I'd definitely use this kind of technology if games supported it and it didn't cost too much. It would massively help immersion. It needs to blend many smells at a time though.

There are a lot of smells I do not want or need in my gaming experience. The smells associated with violent death are chief among these. I like immersion, but I don't want to have a barf bag be part of my gaming setup.

I just don't care what BioWare does anymore. EA has ruined what little is left of them, as they have done to every studio they've ever purchased.
