Or that Mario didn't care about murdering hundreds of citizens to rescue her (read the manual again, those "bricks" you destroy were citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom turned into bricks by Bowser).

It has not come back to haunt them yet. Xbox Live subscribers still dwarf PSN subscribers.

And they may not have earned back YOUR trust, but you are not all gamers. Hell, after E3 I had zero intention of ever getting a Xbox One despite LOVING the Xbox 360. But since then they have eliminated all of the reasons I didn't want one. I still don't plan to get it until a price cut, but I do plan to get it now. Sony has yet to give me any reason to buy a PS4 until it gets down to 200 (if then).

TalkBack / Re: Nintendo Found Liable in 3DS Patent Lawsuit

Update to the case. A judge ruled the amount excessive and reduced it to $15.1 million. Tomita has the option to either accept that amount or file a new suit. Nintendo plans to appeal the decision even more.

The blogger complaining about something that has been going on for YEARS is somehow bad news for Xbox One according to you, that was obviously my point.

And the tiny fire has since been put out and the forest is pristine again.

oh and did i forget http://gizmodo.com/xbox-live-gold-is-still-one-of-the-biggest-ripoffs-in-t-513093573

Someone STILL bitching about the cost of Xbox Live is supposed to be bad news? Nothing has changed on that, it's just another blogger whining (though he goes on to praise the actual service itself). Really, don't embarrass yourself with that post. If you are going to try and post bad "news", post news and not a whiny blog about the price of Live.
tj, i think you need to take some lessons in reading comprehension. hes complaining about xbox live gold being required for things like netflix

pokepal, do you have reading comprehension? My point still stands. And that blogger gets the point wrong. A more apt comparison would be like Xbox Live Gold being the cover charge for a club and the services the cost of drinks. Yes some clubs have a cover charge, doesn't make them a less good deal than the ones which don't. Especially when Live is better.

And pokepal watching the Xbox One "burn" makes me laugh since they have been improving the system non-stop for several months now.

Ninjagi Executive Mansion / Re: Fanboy euthanization station

Meh. I'm not a fan of Sony, and there is not enough to convince me to buy their new systems unless they are dirt cheap. I only got a PS3 to use as a Blu-ray Disc player.

Xbox One controller not working on PCs til next year is not bad news for the XBOX ONE. It only affects PC users. BTW, I have not seen ANY indication the DualShock 4 will EVER work on PCs. So that point of yours is 100% moot.

As for the other work, that is bad news but does not affect the actual system itself.

That is not being a fanboy, it's being objective. Since E3, almost every news about Xbox One has been POSITIVE.

10
Um, except this is more like it was a train wreck months ago but every week it's been fixing itself and getting back on track. Ever since E3 it's been nothing but good news about the system. Meanwhile, there has been more bad news about the PS4. Honestly, every week Microsoft gives more reasons to get the Xbox One. It's making me happy to see more reasons for people NOT to buy a PlayStation 4.

A game can not stay alive on story alone. in 10 years or more, a game that has only good story but mediocre gameplay will be looked back on with negative reviews and age terribly.

Wow, so you are getting mad at nothing. The proposed changes makes NO impact on the legality of fan mixes. You seem to be getting mad at the increase in penalties, which is silly. If you think they fan remixes and trailers should have their status defined (which may never happen, as how MUCH of the copyrighted content you use has a impact on whether its fair use or not), fine. But your original post made it seem like you did not understand what was going on. But this rule change has no impact on the legality of things, so you shouldn't be upset at it. If a person would get arrested for copyright theft, they would have gotten arrested anyways.

Um, spy on you? With every bit of their software you could browse privately. And last time I checked, it was SONY who spied on people (selling over 22 million CDs from 2005-2007 that installed spyware on your computer and sent the info back to them). Frankly, I would trust my info with Microsoft than I ever would with Sony.

14
Again, what "goals"? What is the PS4's "goal"? I have yet to see one. Almost no system has ever had a goal. The only one I can recall was the Xbox with the goal being to stop Sony from taking over the living room.

And they have made it clear they want the Xbox One to be THE entertainment device for your house, it's why they have spent a good amount of time on both games and TV/movies for it.

There was a mixed to good reaction to SM3W. Some were "meh", but most it seemed liked it. It looks like a really good game.

Considering there is a whole thread dedicated to stuff mentioned in other threads, no.

17
Their goal, as is the goal of EVERY system EVER, is to sell as many systems as possible and make good games. Since when has any system had a different "goal"? I don't see the PlayStation 4's "goal". Without all those anti-consumer things, there is now no reason to not get the Xbox One unless you can't afford it.

Nintendo Console Discussion / Re: WiiU external hard drive
« on: August 16, 2013, 09:49:19 AM »
I have a question, what is the theoretical largest drive a Wii U could read? I have several different drives and one I will be allocating to PS4 when I get it and one to the Wii U when/if I get it. I just want to make sure I don't give the Wii U something larger than it can handle.

From their online FAQ (http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wiiu/en_na/system_external_storage.jsp?menu=general_info&submenu=wup-external-usb-storage):

If the Wii U has the most recent system update installed, it will be able to recognize a storage device of any size, but 2TB will be the maximum amount of storage capacity that can be used. Any extra capacity in the storage device beyond the 2TB will not be accessible via the Wii U.

Microsoft is getting rid of gimmicks and stupid requirements, leaving a pure gaming system with a great controller and games. I don't see the confusion.

pokepal, I could say something about how you don't always understand what is going on (since you think increasing the penalties for something already illegal is bad).

And I WAS contributing. Maybe stratos is using a mediocre mobile device or something because every mobile device i've accessed the site on works fine. I don't use the stock web browser on Android though, I use Chrome on Android.

Finally someone else here with good tastes. :)

AGAIN, the ONLY thing this proposal does is increase the penalty of things ALREADY illegal. It does not change the legality of things. Stuff like fan remixes would keep their same legal/illegal status with or without this proposal. You are getting upset for nothing.

This is not about the legality of fan remixes and Let's Play videos. This is apparently you getting mad that they are increasing the penalties for something already illegal (or maybe you did not understand the article and somehow thought that streaming copyright material without permissions was somehow legal before and thought this would make it illegal, not realizing it was already illegal). I want to know if you are upset at them only increasing penalties for something already illegal, or if you just read the article and didn't realize those they are not changing the legal status of ANYTHING?

I never have any problem just using the browser on my phone or iPad to view and post.

Apparently you can get 5,000 bells for uploading your town to the Dream Suite. And if the other player designed patterns and make them available for free, you can download them. Not sure you will find it worth the 500 bell fee to potentially download patterns, I know I don't. I still want the option though, but stupid Isabelle won't sleep.

First season of Justice League horrible? LOL, I think you have bad tastes. It is the worst of the 4 seasons, but still pretty good. As for STAS vs. BTAS, overall BTAS is superior IMO.
