American McGee's idea that most Chinese teens would not buy a console because they are spending their time studying is just not true. If anything, the main problem Microsoft will have in China is competition with itself. Why would a kid with enough money to buy an xbone get one of the messed up Chinese versions that can only play censored games? Why wouldn't he get one of the imported versions off Taobao, or any other online retailer? Console games are huge in China, and have been since they first came out in other countries. Unless Microsoft can offer a superior product at a superior price (like anything else sold anywhere else) they are doomed to fail.

Or maybe it's just an astute observation from a guy that lives and works in China.

I don't know about "astute". "Obvious" sounds a bit more like it.

Oh Sony... When are you going to learn to put out an update that just WORKS?

There's always a small percentage of users who have issues with these things, it's just the nature of the beast.

So the other day I was playing GT6 on my PS3, and it just worked.

Yep.

I was doing it the day before that too.

Crazy stuff.

Edit: Forgot to mention, a while ago I hooked up a SuperNES and put a game in and it just worked. So I shut it off and turned it back on.
I can't figure out how to get it to download updates. Anybody help?

Stealth Inc 2 revealed as a Wii U exclusive.

Thanks asshole dev!

I can't possibly imagine why he'd want to do this. Aside from there being not many Wii Us out there, no one's buying indie games on them. I recently read an article about how lousy Nintendo's been at courting indies too so I can't imagine they're funding his development. What a weird move.

I'm just pissed, as I bought it on steam (as Stealth Bastard Deluxe) and really enjoyed it.

I've read at least one article and there was no mention of a time exclusive, or if it's just an "exclusive exclusive". Cause yeah, I can't see locking him into a 3rd place console and expecting it to go well.

The parent company (Sony) really flubbed physical media vs streaming despite several opportunities to shore up that side of the business. Outside of the videogames division Sony reacts to market changes like they're mired in quicksand, it really shows the need for having a leader with some vision.
