Take Two / Sega indeed may have a cause of action for EA. It's called PREDATORY LICENSING and falls under antitrust laws.

Simply, EA is trying to eliminate competition through licensing, something Microsoft and Sun have both been found guilty of in the past.

Well, EA couldn't beat Sega when it came to gameplay or quality or price so they killed ESPN NFL by bribing the NFL and it's spoiled, overpaid players.

EA sucks. Even more than ever.

Maybe I'm just dumb, but what is the connection between the Times 'bounce" story and the helicopter tricks media? (You say "See media of day" next to the article link.)

XP has a "compatability mode" that tricks proggies into theinking its win95. Next time you have this problem, right click on the installer exe, choose Properties and Compatibility tab and then choose win95. Worked like a charm for me.

Do you think the people up in Redmond would really be THAT stupid to set themselves up for the jokes of calling the interim Xp release "reloaded."

It's already what it is: You end up reloading it over and over...

According to Smart's recent post on his forums, the game being sent to stores the final version, not beta. He gave it to the publisher and then they changed the price on him. (Stupid!).

Also, he says in the forums if the price is $20, he won't make any money and therefore there will be no patches.

Looks like Mike's encounter with M$ is rubbing off. Now he's getting greedy. Of course, the high bidder probably won't pay anyway....

Sounds like a gimmick to me. Also sounds expensive. Now you buy two small screens that still aren't backlit properly. Twice the headache inside half the time.

Why doesn't nintendo focus on making the game on ONE screen better and more competitive with the PSP? Sounds like a DS (Darn Stupid) idea.

To Yuzzem (who thinks the gov't should waste their time on tracking down video game code thiefs) and other posters who debate whether or not theft should be prosecuted, it should be pointed out that this case is not JUSt about a video game or just about theft for that matter.

Think this is not important outside of the game community or the computer industry or even think it's just a large grand theft case? Wrong.

Half-Life 2 is being developed by Valve and published by Sierra. Sierra is part of VU Games, which itself is a unit of Vivendi Universal, a French company. Vivendi, a former waterworks utility, grew far faster and was managed far worse than it should have been. The company has been gushing red ink for many years and Vivendi was despterately trying to sell off its entertainment assets including VU Games.

Finally, Vivendi did manage to find a buyer for most of it's entertainment parts -- NBC, which is itself a unit of General Electric. NBC, however, did not buy VU Games and Vivendi put it back on the block. The division publishes some truly awful games and if it wasn't for Bilizzard (Diablo II / Starcraft / Warcraft) would not be worrth crap. (Unless you think The Hulk and the latest Jurassic Park games were really good, valuable games...)

But VU Games had one, big glorious selling point: Half-Life 2. That one game was going to rescue Vivendi by either boost its earnings for 4Q03 or giving it a much bigger selling price for the unit than it was really worth.

Then came the break-in.

Vu Games now is worth squat for the foreseeable future, no suiter is going to buy it and people around the world are losting their jobs over it. The parent company's stock continues to lose value and shareholders worldwide take the loss.

From Silicon Valley to Wall Street to Paris, this one little breakin is having a big impact.

Let's not forget we live in a global economy. No hack attack or computer crime is small anymore. It affects everyone, from the game programmer to waterworks repairman in france to the soccer mom whose college IRA takes a hit.
