This guy thinks the XBox will kill off PC gaming.
He also thinks the XBox is "one of the most important events in gaming in the next decade". Whew!
"That wasn't me, that was the guy before me!"
This is like "A bear walked in the door and ate it" from a little kid... What scares me is that people are stupid enough to fax him pictures of their credit cards. Wait until they see their next bills!
And now for something completely pointless...
Why on earth would anyone care
enough about something this to invest all the time it took to pull this off? Just to break the record high score on a video game which only appears in museums now?
Now while these guys
are not exactly the most unbiased source for an evaluation of the PlayStation 2
, they have nonetheless backed up their evaluation with a lot of convincing hard information on the performance
and in particular about the financing
. If these guys have got it right, Sony's going to take a bath on this; they'll never come close to recouping their costs of production, let alone all the research they did. If these guys have it right, Sony will lose money on the PS2 as long as they sell it. This Is Not Good. (Unless you hate Rambus, like I do, because this means both of their markets will collapse.)
More than you wanted to know
about the "Tomb Raider" movie. What's weird about it all is that the timing sucks. The game has gone through five successive versions and they've used the same basic engine for all of them. These days it's looking significantly dated, and the last couple of games have gotten really poor reviews. Of course, it probably still sells well to frustrated teenage boys, but I think the last couple of games haven't sold anything like the previous ones did because it's the same old same old.
By the time the movie finally comes out, the game may already be history.
Has there ever
been a movie made from a computer game which was either a commercial or critical success? "Mortal Combat"
and "Super Mario Brothers"
spring to mind as counter-examples.
How to have fun
with your new Playstation 2!
Would someone please explain to me
why anyone would want to play a computer game based on "The Blair Witch Project"?
