It's already perfectly legal for you to buy an 18 certificate game for your child (providing you're 18 or over yourself).

GT5 has 1000 vehicles, out in Q4 2009

I was under the impression that it was a trade show and therefore it was for people in the trade to read, not the public. Trust me, within the trade a lot of companies insist on using the financial calendar as standard, it's annoying but it happens.

Because it's a trade show and companies tend to work on their own financial calendars.

Rumour: PSP2 Features Quad Core Graphics Chip

ruttyboy

9 years ago

Anyone who looks at the Chart Track figures every week will be in no doubt that software sales on the PSP are nothing short of abysmal. If it wasn't from Sony then plenty of retailers would have dropped it as a format a long time ago.

Sure it sells millions of hardware units, but for software sales it is a dog, there is no real argument here, at least from anyone looking at the reality of the situation.

Retrospective: Earth Defence Force 2017

ruttyboy

9 years ago

One of the best 360 games yet released without a shadow of a doubt. I've put over 60 hours into it now both co-op and solo and I still come back to it :D

Also to call the graphics 'last gen' is an out and out lie. The explosions are absolutely beautiful for a start.

I haven't tried Global Defence Force and always assumed it would be hard to get hold of, howeverafter looking on Amazon I've just picked up a second hand copy for a fiver, can't wait! \o/

MS man explains why it's hard to police homophobia on Live

ruttyboy

9 years ago

Microsoft need to have a zero tolerance approach on anyone who is shown to be abusing other users.

I agree, but the problem with that is (and MS are fully aware of this), the amount of bannage required would instantly half (at least) the amount of subscribers (or revenue sources in corporate speak) and so as long as they keep paying their subscription and don't make MS liable in any way they couldn't give a shit. Their core market for Live *is* retarded teens after all.

*Or* it shows a sense of irony regarding the pathetic fanboy wars surrounding gaming and how relatively unimportant this firmware update is compared to the hype of NXE.

@kangarootoo

But the change has 'offended' the 'unoffended' group by preventing them from satisying their desires, or at least delaying it. That might be a purile reason and it says a lot about the maturity and level of patience present in your average 'gamer', but it's still true.

ruttyboy

Sorry Razorus, but for me it is the same issue, that of people being 'offended on grounds of religious sensibility' and the reaction to it. It doesn't actually matter why and how the offence is caused (as Religion abandons logic as a matter of course), merely that people feel it, but the difference in reaction to the (IMO unreasonable demands) of the various religions is telling.

As you say, the seemingly greater respect that is paid to Islam is certainly linked to fear as thankfully (in this country anyway) Christians are just not seen as dangerous whereas Muslims are. Whether that is the reality is irrelevant as it is only a perception.

You'd have to be pissed off if you a hardline Christian though wouldn't you, the two examples (Manchester Cathedral and Jerry Springer) they were told to get stuffed, but if Mumra is involved everybody runs scared. The Christians need to start burning effigies and 'stuff' to get some proper respect. That or just wake the fuck up and realise it's not the Middle Ages anymore.

"Would you RAPE a child?!

Because that's the direct equivalent when you pirate a film!"


Those ads make me laugh :D

The reason DRM exists is because the people in charge of publishers are not in anyway technically minded. They are 50+ years old and would probably need help installing iTunes on their PC, never mind circumventing it. All they can see are those ludicrous 'loss' calculations that just assume that every download is a lost sale at full retail value. They feel they have to do something to prevent that, but are just not knowledgable enough to understand the fultility of trying.

Imagine trying to explain 'hacker sub-culture' to your grandma...
