It doesn't make sense to gear up to make 4M of these per month, because over its lifetime it will rarely sell at that rate. So instead you gear up to make 1M a month and then just start early and rack up the units for launch.
This is limited by how early you can really start. You can't begin making units until the design is finalized and parts available and that's not going to happen more than a few months early, because you don't want the unit to be a year out of date on the first day it is available to the public.
Sony took their best guess on what level to ramp up to and so far it doesn't seem that bad to me. The shortage levels are normal for a successful launch and it isn't as bad as the PS2 launch or Wii launch so far.
I thought the story wrapped up well. Edward being so concentrated on himself, it made sense that the ending concentrates on him and not the Templars and Assassins.
I think the ending managed to not only do that, as befitted the game and giving us a break from the hugely weighty zillion-year battle of Assassins and Templars, but also made that ending poignant too. Because he is such a self-centered guy, we see his future as a bit of a lonely one. It doesn't involve many others because he doesn't involve many others in his life.
I also liked the market research videos, especially the one saying that Connor was boring as hell and spent too much time running through trees. "Recommend we not continue with this character." That's AC3 in a nutshell right there.
Also, the jokey "in a world..." Pirates video from marketing was hilarious.
Did anyone find a payoff (ending) from the Astergo Entertainment world in this game? I hacked everything and found every note and got nothing except the end credits. Not that I mind, but it is unusual for AC.
Any logitech one which has a USB receiver. I use a H760, but they aren't sold anymore. You can get basically the same thing, but in a different shape still.
Quite cheap. Very long battery life. Good sound, mic and ear speakers.
On the H760, if you rotate the boom mic up, it mutes it automatically. So you can just listen when you want to and pull down the mic to switch to two-way if you hear anyone worth talking to. Probably others work the same.
Reviews on Samsung SSD's are kind up and down which is why I prefer Sandisk or Kingston. That is a good deal though.
I've never heard anything negative about them, the 840 Pro SF2200 based line are excellent. The Evo line more or less fall under the same bracket as things like the Crucial M500, value focused options with lower performance than their big brothers but more than enough speed especially on the big capacity drives.
Their migration utility is actually pretty sweet to if you're changing out system disks.
I have an 840 Pro.
The negative is that they are "old style". That is, they are designed for fast average transaction time but not for consistent transaction times. The regular and pro suffer from this, the Evo is closer to new style.
Still, the Pros are very good. But you can be sure next time out Samsung will make sure all their drives emphasize not only fast average transaction times but consistency also.
