If it makes games shops lower their prices for pre-owned, this can only be a good thing.

@TeaFiend: Exactly! But if you pay 95% of the RRP for a second hand car, you don't blame the manufacturer. You should blame your own stupid self.

Another advantage of custom armour is that you can use the 'scope' helmet, which leaves just puts a targetter over one eye (and adds 10% or something to headshot damage)

I found most of the armour downloads to be rubbish, I much preferred tweaking each individual option.

Bungie deal is "a big win", says Sony

"the incredible gohan-like untapped power of T3H PS3`"

If they'd said that, it probably would come across as slightly less dickish!

Personally though my Sony hatred comes from their warranty dept, not from the execs (who I ignore). Execs spout shit, it's what they're (over)paid for.

Surely it would take a damn sight less time than a new game, on the grounds they've already got the story, level design and game balance already sorted? All that needs sorting is the graphics and voice acting...

Rogue Planet on the iPhone is about the only game I've bothered to play. Turn based RTS games work well on it, can't be bothered to play anything else.

Saying that I can't be bothered to buy a PSP either.

If it wasn't for Zelda and Metroid, I could see myself swapping the Wii for Natal.
