haha I totally agree with Dan Whitehead about not wanting to do things to my main character's canon - while I have played ME1 twice and am playing ME2 again atm, I find it difficult to vary too much from my original decisions as I do really feel an attachment to the Shephard I created. Same in Fallout3 when I played the PC version after already completing the 360 version, I blew up Megaton to get a screenshot of it and see what it was all about, but I didnt savegame and in fact the minute I had finished my screenshots, I actually made that iteration of my Lone Wanderer jump off Tenpenny Tower and commit suicide for his sins!

why is it not 16:9 - or at least 16:10 - no doubt it's some bizzare proprietary res too like that weird 1152 one they used for years

ok I give up - I cant make it to the end - Im not watching the whole video - it is an experience more cringeworthy than any 'cash for gold' or 'stick all your mortgages in one bowl' advertisements on TV...

exceeds what I understand ? - wot???
my god what a load of bull -

'theres no wrong way to hold it..' except anything other than portrait and landscape maybe ????

the designer's been speaking to the marketing department for too long

im kinda putting this slightly out of context here but still these words do appear in sequence:

'it just feels right, to hold the internet in your hands!'

yeh the new stuff is pretty good, although I think they should go through all their 'watch previews' of films that have been up for a long time and apply the Silverlight streaming to them, as it is very good when you checkout the Avatar trailer to test it. Why is last.fm not coming here (Ireland) ? :(

Polyphony confirms GT5 head-tracking

Im pretty sure Forza 3 is going to integrate Natal head tracking into it too, there was a very quick flash of that going on in the Natal launch video - TrackIR has done this on the PC for a good while now, mainly for flight sims (although you have to wear a Scotchguard reflective strip on a cap (or your forehead (!)). It is pretty cool, but if you're one of the unfortunate who can often suffer from motion sickness in first person (and sometimes 3rd person games even), it can be kinda disorientating and nauseating, but the feeling of flight is very good as you look around during takeoff. FIA GTR (or the next game they made) had trackIR support in it, although you can usually assign trackIR to use 'mouselook' in any game that has it.
