Sony, their VITA sold poorly and they don't seem to know who their core demographic is in the western world.

TANG was amazing, back then you could feel the energy they had for doing something new and exciting. It was not just WORK, they were liberated from corporate interests and it really showed.

Miss those days.

I Really didn't enjoy Farcry 3.

Tax time is here and I'm going to have some money to spend. So my question is, is buying a PS3 just to play the games I cannot get for my 360 worth it? Games like Heavy Rain, Ni No Kuni, metal gear solid 4, little big planet etc... Mainly triple A titles and RPG's. I really hate that I am missing out on so many games. My other option is a 3DS, only problem I see with that is something big comes out for the 360, it takes a long time for me to remember I even have a handheld system.

I have been investigating this quite a bit because I have been thinking the same thing and also have a 360 already. There just are not that many great exclusives for the PS3 to make it worthwhile for me. I was holding off buying a PS3 until all the great JRPGs hit, but they never really did. It has about 5 titles that I want to play, the cost for playing those 5 games is not that good of a deal. Unless you are looking to buy a bluray player (which I am not).

@Brodehouse said: You are trying way too hard to misunderstand what the discussion is about, it is not about what is legal or not at all. I am pretty sure everyone agrees that game studios paying weapons manufacturers is legal, the discussion is about if it is a good thing :)

What's so different about real guns appearing in games compared to, say, real cars?

By paying for the license to use real gun models in their games, developers are effectively funding weapons manufacturers.

By paying for the license to use real car models in their games, developers are effectively funding vehicle manufacturers.

Guns are items designed to hurt and kill people. Cars are not explicitly designed for that purpose. I figured that point was implicit in my comment, but since both of you apparently needed the clarification, there you are.

That doesn't change anything. Guns are items that are legally salable to adults in America and other Western countries. They're legal to buy, possess, sell and manufacture. There is no moral quotient to the sale or manufacture of legal consumer goods to adults. Trying to say there is one, and that 'it disturbs me' is nothing less than the obsequious moralizing and soft-handed censorship that already has a half-dozen legal industries ghettoized.

I think Spec Ops pulled it off great, although not a FUN game, so awesome from a story perspective.

There is a Swedish one called "Tre Kronor", it was a pretty standard soap opera about a small town. In the last episode, a crazy priest locks everyone in town into a church and blows everyone up. :)

I just got this problem a week ago too. It does not happen all the time, but it happens now and again. Also running Win 7 64bit and chrome.
