The blatant anti-scientological sentiment displayed by a certain mod on this forum is disgusting. I thought we lived in an age of tolerance."

Today is a great day for equality and understanding.
Rock on, Scientologists. At least you don't follow that religion that everyone really hates."

What happened to your tolerance, equality and understanding?

It would be more fun if you knew about it before hand? It's not like it won't happen for people who didn't know about the 'secret'.

Rockstar upset by Manhunt ban

what are you on about? Child porn is not censorship. Censorship of child porn is censorship and child porn isnt censored, its banned, illegal, completely disallowed. In a vaguely relative sense, things that are illegal are therefore being censored, but you cannot compare censorship of a legal medium to the complete censorship of an illegal medium, thats just daft.

I'm sure it was even news on Eurogamer that not long ago more reasonable studies have shown that exactly because you are interacting with it, you dont really get to forget it's all just a game.

Whats this nonsense about child porn? Child porn is illegal and punishable. Playing games is not.

>360 is kind of a cool subculture thing to have now in Japan. You are "cool" if you have one.

Only to Japanese nerds, regular Japanese think its 'the one the nerds like' :)

I think the reason for the disappointing (that is, above average scoring) scores isn't about the machine, its as you mentioned, they're launch titles :) but in saying that, we got elebits and trauma centre over here! ;)

Sonic The Hedgehog

Sega can still make great games, I really think so. They just lost alot of the freedom they had back in the day (the freedom which often didnt give profit, and resulted in alot of debt). Now with bottomlines to meet, Sammy having a major control, teams being remerged, I get the impression they dont have the fighting spirit these days. Still, I think they'll do great games again, but it won't be a Sonic. They've made greater than Sonic, its best we ignore the spasming hedgehog..

@Steroyd

that may be true, but it's interesting that the Wii seems to be everywhere, alot of billboards, tv and crucially an advert on the yamanote line always playing, its in the public eye but i have rarely seen a PS3 advert of any kind

I'm looking forward to the results of them going head to head, it will be interesting anyway :)

Dev focus shifting to Wii - Fils-Aime

ChimneyBug

12 years ago

@Talha
Just because I'm saying this is whiny doesn't mean I don't think the same when it's done against another company, Microsoft are usually doing the same thing. In Sony's case it's not that they repeat themselves, it's they repeatedly try to defend things like the insane price, bluray and such things as opposed to just getting on with it a bit

but on topic, it would be nice if SEGA could get their act together again (as in focus on nice development instead of trying to get some money back, but that's understandable) and did some really interesting stuff with the Wii, I'm sure they had some suggestions other than wobbling sonic around that had to be turned down due to its lack of profitable design

Christ you are a whiny lot. If you like a comedian and go to all of his stand-up shows, are you going to complain that he reuses the same material a lot? He has to repeat his message to the people who haven't been nerdishly following every word, just because Eurogamer always posts it doesn't mean he is interested in constantly telling YOU. He did say it at a gaming summit, if you heard his message before I'm sure he isn't interested in you hearing it again.

On another note; 3rd party devs themselves have been touting their support, so shut up.
