Rockefeller won't be happy until he gets a study result he agrees with, no matter how many tries it takes.

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.

Issa just wants to keep Net Neutrality legislation from cramping his big media pals' style... and profits.

Good luck with that, Rhode Island. Blaming your own lack of due diligence and complete unfamiliarity with the video game industry on someone else isn't going to get you your money back.

I hope the half price for Metro 2033 applies to the US market, as well.

Just because something uses bandwidth does not mean that something is data. Most of the garbage from the conventions is just that, garbage.

No. Because there is no actual problem. Only a percieved problem.

"If they do nothing, they are essentially ceding a good portion of their sales to pirates who have no intention of ever paying them a dime."

There is no proof that DRM increases sales, there is no proof that the lack of DRM decreases sales. For DECADES, since the early days of tapes and video cassettes the fear of loosing sales is based on assumptions, not actual, proven facts.
Well said!

Rumors about rumors are even more silly than the original rumors.

I have purchased over 70 games from GoG. Most of them are RPGs such as Fallout 1 & 2, Baldur's Gate 1 & 2, Icewind Dale 1& 2 and Planescape: Torment, that I had purchased previously and wanted to play again on Windows 7, but without all of the kluges and workarounds it would take to make that happen using the original CDs. I would be very happy to have the chance to buy newer games from GoG, although I would not be willing to pay more than $19.99 for any single game.

I call bullshit on Ubi's 90% figure. The fact that their info comes from Pachter only makes the pile higher.

I can't wait until the next gen consoles ship. Most PC games these days are ports, and graphics and design are suffering as a result of old consoles. On the other hand my old E6600 proc runs new games just fine (albeit with an nVidia 460). But I'll be upgrading soon, and it would be nice if more games took advantage of the hardware.
Most PC games will continue to be ports up to and well after the next consoles are released. Sufficiently beefy PCs will still have no trouble handling the hardware requirements of ported games, no matter what version of console is current, simply because the consoles base their hardware specs on the PC hardware available at the time the console is produced.

When the latest gen consoles are released, their specs are near the upper end of PC specs for graphics and sound. Six months later, PCs leave consoles in their dust. This will continue to happen as long as consoles are nothing more than dedicated-purpose PCs.
