Only problem is how they handle expansions.
Instead of releasing DLC they just release an updated game with the original and expansion and make you pay full retail price for it again.
Personally I'd prefer DLC to re-buying a game twice!
I honestly don't see this happening for the simple reason that MS can't risk implementing this and Song not doing it.
If one of the two does block used games it gives the other one a huge advantage because if you had the option of buying a console that supported used games and another that...
A friend of mine has used both for years and uses the same email and password for both and his WLM contacts have never transferred over to Skype.
So as normal the change isn't going well for all involved.
Interesting. Wasn't one of the big selling points of the magnetic catapults on the Ford class that they wouldnt pull drones apart like the steam ones do?
I'm guessing they've just beefed up the drone rather that retro fitting a carrier though?
Funnily enough over here (Ireland) it's standard procedure for mobile operators to block stolen phones. Afaik they are legally required to do so.
That said it doesnt do much to help with phone theft. The thieves just get the phone unlocked and it can be used on another network that isnt...
Funnily enough I was chatting to a mate of mine who's a manager of one of the local branches of GAME this morning and asked him about this.
He said that normally they'd get 3 or 4 PS3's in a week but in the last week they've had 15 and last week there was about 10 :eek: Sales of them are...
Meh while the game will most likely be great I cant help but feel they're setting themselves up for a huge backlash.
While it may be the best looking fps around not many pc players will have anything near the specs of the machines they're demoing it on so it wont look anywhere near as good as...
While I'm not going to say I've never pirated a game (haven't done it in a long time though) I'm glad to see stories like this. Pirating the odd game for personal use but making doing it for profit when you have done nothing to earn that money is quite another.
Given the money CEO's make they can afford to quit a job and take an indefinate vaction. It's probable that the job wouldnt have allowed him enough time for an extended trip so stepping down was his only option.
Yeah i read about that yesterday, its an interesting approach all right, clever and unique and a good way of keeping things interesting.
That said I could never play the same long enough to Prestige once let alone for a sixth time :eek:
Sounds reasonable to me, my aunt has a 19" mounted in her kitchen and that looks fine becasue the room is tiny.
It will look no bigger or smaller than it does now so all that will change is where it is.
It didnt actually leak. It was put up on the XBL Marketplace put you needed a special code to download it, the code was only given out to reviewers.
What these people did was either hacked the XBL servers (unlikely) or found a way to generate the code, given there are plenty of people on EBay...
