I always kinda appreciated niche games, and I was a big Dreamcast fan, so maybe I liked that niche element the system had going for it, while the mass market didn't. I've always tended to root for the underdog, and that was part of the appeal of the Xbox for me at the time. I have been discovering a few games now that I actually didn't play back in the day like Otogi 1 and 2, and I really want to play them, especially after learning they were made by From Software.

Even with many of it's great games being multiplatform though, it's already been mentioned, but many of them are better on the Xbox. Burnout games, Mercenaries, Splinter Cell...they all just look great on the Xbox compared to PS2. Even the games that did also come out on PC though, I've always been more of a console gamer, so if I want to go back and play KOTOR, I'll play the Xbox version because I personally can't stand the controls for the PC version. I need to have a controller in my hand for that type of game.

@corruptedevil: I don't know if I'd call the controller garbage...at least not the s-controller. In fact, other than the placement of certain buttons, and white and black buttons rather than bumpers, it feels very similar to the 360 controller to me. I've been playing games on my Xbox for the past few days, and it still feels good to me. The sticks are nice and responsive, the triggers got a good feel to them. It's not the best d-pad, but it's actually better then the original 360 dpad I think.

Awesome. I was down that I couldn't get this game after hearing all the GB crew feedback. I'll totally get this when it's on Steam.

“As with the launch of any MMO, the size and skillset of the teams needed to maintain the game is different than the ones that built it,” said the company in an emailed statement this afternoon.

I'm sure the people working on SWTOR all that time were hoping that their years of time and effort working on the game would lead to them not having a job.

This fucking sucks. Plain and simple.

I'm not sure if this has been said already in the comments, but I feel like this is still kinda pointless for me. The problems with the game's ending extend beyond lack of closure.

There are multiple problems with the game's ending, but my biggest one still is the bull shit that the young boy AI ghost says at the end. How the cycle always continues...synthetics rise up and destroy organics or some bull shit like that. This pissed me off because I just proved him wrong earlier in the game by bringing peace between the Geth and the Quarians. Not to mention the fact that it wasn't the Geth who wanted to fight. Maybe that's an isolated situation, or that peace would not necessarily last forever. I don't know, those are questions I don't have answers to. The fact that it happened at all though should have mattered, and my Shepard should've used that as an example when the stupid boy was using it as an excuse for the cycle of cleansing.

Stupid question before I go look it up myself: What about PSOne classics, like Resident Evil 2 and FFVII, VIII, and IX? Are they all compatible, not initially compatible, or not compatible and no plans to be so?

Unfortunately PSOne classics will not be playable on the Vita at launch, except via Remote Play. They said PSOne games will be playable eventually though.

Wait, the Metal Gear games are not on this list, but I've seen at least one of the Metal Gear games (Peace Walker I believe), being played on a Vita.

Nope, I'm not playing anymore. Same thing happened as has happened with many MMOs before. I get to late teens, early 20s for my character level, and I realize that it's the same fucking MMO as every other, and that I'm already tired of it. I keep looking to the genre for change and innovation, but never find it. Adding dialogue trees doesn't count as a big enough leap to me, when the overall gameplay is exactly the same.

Unfortunately no steam version means no sale just yet.
