Idk what to make of it, really. Does it mean that my future 360 update will include making phone calls now? Sounds like the guys in the article pegged it right, MS has so much money they don't know what to do with it all.

Multiplayer RPGs / Dungeon Hunter Alliance (PSN download)

I read a couple preview articles on it and it sounds pretty fun. I loved playing champions of norrath back on PS@ way back when, and I love the idea of multiplayer action rpg across console and online at the same time.

Any takers on this, ladies and germs?

Edit: I just realized this oughta be in the multiplayer RPG thread, so if someone would kindly move this when possible, that'd be awesome :)

General Discussions / George Hotz (geohot) VS Sony.

So I've been kinda following the whole thing about him jailbreaking the PS3 and how Sony took his ass to court for it. I'm pretty interested in following it, mostly because I'm a big PS3 guy, and I hate how he's gonna give more people an opportunity to pirate some more and cost game developers money that could be better used for making some new games perhaps, but I'm really following it because I hate how every little pirating fanboy is defending him, saying it's their right to play with their system how they like. First up, no, you wanna download games free, stop pretending you're gonna do something special outside of piracy, if you wanna do homebrewed programs and gaming, do it on your pc which is okay to modify however you like (not really but eh). Second, I love how all these kids are claiming corporations are money grubbing scum suckers and such, when in reality, you're costing the working class employees money by what you're doing. If you bite sony's ass and they lose a few million dollars, they lay off the people who are less integral to the company (and get paid less overall). The corporate bigwigs lose nothing, they're set for life, all you're doing is hurting working people by stealing games. It's like stealing from a local video gamestop or a best buy. The working class employees (the ones who get aid for actually labor) are the guys who're gonna get fired. Best Buy executives and Gamestop corporate brass just shrug off a few stores to regulate their weekly checks back to 5 and 6 figures.

Enough of my ranting though, how about some opinions, I'd love to get some discussion going about this.
