I would be far more interested in seeing an article on some real, physical work being done to change this problem. A bunch of tweets is certainly not enough, and isn't very hopeful.

This movement doesn't help at all when there are asshats on both ends of the spectrum. Women being idiotic and jumping all over men when they may accidentally slip up and do something nice for them, questioning their motives at every turn. Then men being just as stupid when they act like females aren't capable of being anything more than a lesser form built just for their sexual desire. In the end there will never be equality, not even when a law about it is passed and everyone wears the same clothes or has the same haircut and uses the same public bathrooms.

A better movement would be helping people realize how they treat others and showing them proper ways of giving respect. Be it man or woman. In any industry, not just video games.

I don't know why people would buy extra controllers or even pay for something that is almost nonexistent. The equivalent would be grabbing a few sticks off the ground and applying the same rule sets, sans PS3. The other games in the collection I don't have a problem with, but "JS Joust" is just.....what?

@jeffrud: @kermoosh: It's an actual quest here. Can't we all just get off our high-horses and stop caring about top commentors in the first place? So much bitching over spilled milk.

No offense intended, but I believe it's meant to be spilt milk. I just had to point that out. Also - while not entirely on point - Learn 2 Spell!

No, spilt makes no sense in that phrase. Milk is a liquid and can't be spilt. Spilled is correct

SONY EXPLOITS are news? I get Brad Muir being deep in Microsoft's pockets, but I didn't expect this from the staff. You guys kept pretty hush during those two years of FREE xbl arcade games. There's no way devs didn't lose millions from that as people played Trenched, Bastion etc. via a simple USB hack. But here you are, continuing to perpetuate and glorify this garbage, but for the console of your liking. Could you mention YIFAN LU a few more times while you're at it? His name isn't sticking like Geohot or James Holmes yet.

I think you're blowing this out of proportion. This news article is to break the false rumors floating around, not bring attention to the idea that piracy is still a thing.

Wasn't it announced or "leaked" sometime around E3 that FFXIII Versus was actually FFXV now? Or were people speculating that too.

Honestly I think /v/ and couple other boards on 4chan are a much better place to visit than these forums. I just have more fun.

The people saying the boards are bad probably haven't been there long enough to see when 4chan can have decent discussions and entertaining threads. Either that, or they probably got trolled and couldn't take it anymore.

Or maybe they just don't like engaging in silly childish games to get some kid off on a fake power rush? Gotta love it when being trolled and not putting up with a culture and community notorious for being borderline obsessive of it is "not being able to take it anymore." Trolling is dumb, and often an annoying waste of time for all involved. Not wanting to put up with it is a pretty reasonable reason to stay away from 4chan in general. Among a million other things.

Branding 4chan as a whole as a bad thing just because some people are assholes wouldn't be any different than saying these boards are a terrible place and no one should ever visit them just because some of the users are assholes. No one said anyone had to put up with the trolling, but to brand the entire place as if that's all there is and to visit the place is like planning a horrible day. Just completely hypocritical.

Trolling is everywhere on the internet, pal. You may associate it with 4chan the most, because of what you've heard, but it really isn't any different on any public forum that allows 'children' to run around posting for free.

That shit going to flop.

No one is going to waste more money on a MS tablet than buy an iPad. Google tried it already and they still haven't made a dent.

Good luck with that, just like how Microsoft took out Apple and Google in the handset market!

You clearly don't understand the point of this tablet combined with Windows 8. It's not just a tablet, it's a legitimate laptop unlike all other tablets, that's the big difference. This combines the ultrabook and tablet market into one.

Maybe so, but that doesn't necessarily mean it will sell well. It has to appeal to the mass market. Especially the people who already have an iPad or even the ones who don't but just want a new Tablet for the novelty. Apple has already saturated the market, I don't expect the Windows 8 tablet to compete with iPads as well as people are hoping.

whats the early termination fee? whether or not I jump in depends on if selling the kinect will pay for the fee.

I'm sure they've thought through all the hair-brained schemes gamers could ponder. I'm willing to bet that if you stop paying, it disables the console. Furthermore, this version xbox won't be able to even boot up without being conntected to the internet, insomuch that the console will phone-home before booting, informing Microsoft HQ that it is or is not a legitimately paying customer. If not, the console will not be allowed to boot. The kinect will also more than likely be tethered to that specific console, and will not work without that SPECIFIC console.

Are you saying Xbox Slims will not work unless you have an internet connection for it? That's an extremely off-putting reason for me to buy one, if that's true.
