Op Ed

GameZone - Five Issues With PC Gaming.
Personally, my biggest pet peeve with the PC is the lack of split-screen multiplayer.

Koku Gamer - Sony and Their Perpetual Hole. Thanks Joker961.
Sony has been digging this perpetual hole for itself since it released the PS3. They are probably the company with least amount of concern for the gamer and their relentless self-promoting and attempted cash-cows have cost them a lot this generation, especially considering the PS2 was a juggernaut last generation for doing almost the opposite of what Sony is doing now. One can only wonder what the executives at Sony are thinking when they make these business decisions and I can only say, thank God that platform has managed to get some really great games on it brought to them by third-parties or this could have very well been the end of the PlayStation.

Nice that you completely ignored how much of a huge pain in the ass it is to take a computer down, put it in a car or whathaveyou and move it to a friend's place.

I didn't ignore it, I just consider it irrelevant to the actual game-playing experience. Also, if you have a dedicated LAN machine, it really isn't all that hard to take apart and set up because LAN machines are generally small and you only use them at LAN parties.

Not to mention those days we brought over a second TV and second XBOX and had 12 people sitting around doing 4x4 Halo (we obviously had to switch off.) There goes any fear of screen watching - each TV had one entire team!

Yes, with each person staring at a tiny portion of each TV screen. Sounds awesome!

Can't really do that with PCs. All we needed were two couches, two tables and four outlets. For 8 people.

Again, if you have to divide a screen four-ways, the gameplay experience is pretty much ruined. I'll gladly put in the effort needed to participate in a LAN party rather than settle for the easier but compromised experience of playing split-screen.
