The PlayStation ad was clever, but we're to assume that guy has lived in the same one-room apartment for the last 15-20 years?

This is going to be hot garbage. Reasons:
1. PG-13 Rating instead of R? Check.
2. Coming out in the film-death month of February? Check.
3. Suit looks ridiculous? Check.
The director Jose Pidilha has done some good stuff in the past, so that's about the only glimmer of hope I see.
That thing looks like a photoshop render for a potenial "Is this what the next DS will look like?!?!?!?!?!" articles on IGN.
Well, this is just another example of a game turning into more of a "service," a la Team Fortress 2. The only difference between the trajectory of TF2 and Street Fighter 4 is the Capcom still insists on releasing (and charging for) separate iterations. Street Fighter V will most likely not arrive until the next-gen consoles have been out for some time in order to justify an entirely new product.
Man, this so crazy and sad. I've never gotten this upset about the passing of someone who is ostensibly a stranger to me. And yet, I have probably heard more of Ryan's thoughts on life and current events in the last 10-15 years than anyone besides my immediate family. He will be missed.
Interesting. Although, since the restrictive policies were already announced the XONE was certainly designed with those policies in mind, I give MS about 3 years before these policies rear their ugly head again. By then maybe a lot less people will care (i.e. acceptance of digital-only), but nonetheless...
It's funny you should mention Spider-Man. Initially that was the only character I wanted to use so I paid the $20/2000 space bucks/ whatever. Playing as Spider-Man, however, leaves something to be desired. He has no weapons or magic to speak of (web shooters don't count) and he just basically punches stuff. Coupled with the fact that there are no visible armor upgrades, I feel kind of let down. That being said I will probably play a little more to see if later character levels open up anything more meaningful.
Actual scientific polls have found that kids 13 and under want an iPad by a significant margin.
