    Are We In Another Tech Bubble?

    I would be scared of owning Alibaba. Bubble all over this one. "The bigger concern is that, because China's government restricts foreign ownership of Chinese assets, Alibaba shareholders won't actually own the company. Instead, through a so-called variable interest entity (VIE), they will...

    Xbox One Overtakes PS4 Hours After DRM Reversal

    I hear you brotha. Dreamcast never got a fair shake between the 'Holding out for PS2' Fanbois and the easy no mod chip needed pirating. :( I found it hilarious when the first gen PS2 games all were blurry meanwhile Soul Calibur was razor sharp and buttery smooth day one.

    Analyst: Publishers Won't Block Used Games, Much

    Yes but this is the biggest contributor. May as well see to the insane profit they have been making directly, then pay the publishers a small percentage (for those who pay a higher publishing price of course).

    Xbox Always Online Controversy Gets Weirder

    Naa I'll just work through my backlog while these clowns get their heads out of their asses and realized they effed up. ;) At least with PC you have several choices (greenman, GOG, Amazon, Steam, Origin, Uplay, hell even GameStop) which tends to keep some competition in check. I dont have...

    Xbox Always Online Controversy Gets Weirder

    You will not just combat used sales/piracy. You will combat new sales as I won't buy a console that won't let me freely exchange games. What if I want to use a Gamefly subscription? Not all of us wipe our bums with $100 bills. I like to try before I buy. :)

    Nintendo: Microsoft, Sony Need to React To Us

    Just a side note, adjusting for 3% year-over-year inflation, the WiiU standard is 50$ cheaper than the OG Wii coming in a 248$. So technically, they are making even less per system (I'm sure they are still making something)

    Nintendo: Microsoft, Sony Need to React To Us

    Umm 100 million vs 70 million is 30% not 45%. Not really something to brag about when the system came out cheaper than the existing competition. People forget that Wii was making money on systems DAY ONE of launch. MS/Sony sell at or below cost and need to recoup the costs of the system...
