Microsoft may be rushing the next gen out in 2012.

If the Xbox 3 is coming out in 2012, I'd hardly call 7 years for a successor to the 360 "rushing". This console cycle has actually gone on pretty long.

Microsoft stated last year that they expected the 360 to flourish until 2015. They are also releasing Halo 4 in late 2012 on the 360. If they had planned on releasing a new console in 2012 don't you think they would have wanted the new Halo trilogy to sell their new console? They see they are losing the lead they have over Sony and know if they want the next gen to go as well for them as this gen they need to release the next xbox before the next playstation. It may have all been a big conspiracy to try and pull a fast one on Sony but if you take 3 years off the expected release date in less than a year it sure sounds like trying to rush it to the market to me.

Them saying they expect the 360 to be viable for until 2015 doesn't mean that they won't release a successor before that much the same way the ps2 remained a viable platform at least 2-3 years into this console generation. Sony also said that they expect a 10 year lifespan for the PS3 but also say that that a successor would be released before that 10 years is up. Generation overlap and transition has has always been a part of the business.

@MattyFTM: Sodium rich, heavily processed paste should never be considered a vegetable under any circumstance. Not even close.

I have to go with this. It's close actually, but been perverted, and I bet pretty limited on what a good mix of real vegetables should do for you. If what I am reading is true, that by a continuation pizza is sold in school lunches as a component supplying vegetable matter,..that's a continued perversion of what is really intended.

I love pizza myself, not going to lie. But if I am paying for school lunches for my kid(s), they can if nothing better, have that pizza with a salad or vegetable mix also on the plate. (makes me think back to our favorite in high school, the meatball on roll sandwiches!)

To me even more dangerous, high fructose soda instead of milk, orange juice or even just plain water.

I'm with you, I love pizza and I even made some last night. The sauce was a can of diced tomatoes mashed and stewed with a fresh basil, oregano and garlic. If the pizza they're serving kids was made from something like that, it'd be a start but I still wouldn't consider that alone a proper serving of vegetables.

Loving Skyrim but I think Portal 2 is still tops for me.

Just want to double check, I haven't joined either faction, is there a way to find a mutual compromise between the two groups or is it definitely one or the other?

I got a beta code for getting Uncharted 3 but I can't see myself playing it. First one who messages me gets it.

@Unknown_Pleasures: Ah didn't see that thread. It should really be in the Skyrim forum.

If you're not enjoying it, definitely stop reading. But what I would say in defense of the book is fantasy like that had never been done before and while we all have touchstones for dwarves,hobbits, elves, etc from various sources, at the time of writing those books, it was all completely new and demanded explanation which other people were able to run with.
