you up your games to $60 and you didnt see this coming? for shame sony.

Wait, you're blaming Sony for the price headed to $60?  Are you daft?  I don't really blame Microsoft or Sony for a price increase with the cost of development, but you simply can't ignore the fact that Microsoft led with the increase a full year before the PS3 saw release.

That being said, D. tnegA brings up a perfectly valid point: Cartridge games were expensive.  Virtua Racing for the Genesis was $90.  In 1994.
If anything, slap ms for that trick, at least sony uses a more expensive format for publishing said games.

Ahh, the good ole days of begging my parents to buy that one new game...then I'd beat it in 8 days and my parents would scream at me for not playing it anymore. Good ole memories.

Oh cmon, nintendo was charging how much for SNES carts back in its prime? I found my original copy of Megaman X at funcoland for 70 bucks when I was 8 and it first came out. I'd be more inclined to bash sony for allowing developers to put shitty ports like Black Ops and Portal onto the PS3 and expect people to pay full price for them in their crappy state.

@Leyviur....touche.

If he is thrown in jail it will be a huge strike against human rights and opens the door for corporations to lynch consumers as they see fit.
Uh....yeah he's not gonna get jailtime, it was just a shot at using jailbreak for hilarity reasons. If he gets put in jail for this I'm probably leaving America for someplace less...stupid.

I'm in love with this game. It has REALLY grown on me. The only little thing that would be nice is if there was a way to mod it so that Stocke didn't have to stay in the party at all times. He's nice and balanced, but he's not the most... interesting character in battle. That's also my main complaint with FF7 (I'm making this thread follow the board's rules).

Still, this game is amazing.

There was a point in the game where you could make any 3 person party in FFVII, if I'm not mistaken.
Yeah I remember that part, when cloud went all emo and gave up on life....


c wut eye did thar?

Oh, I'm not saying that he used the donation to pay for his vacation, nobody can prove if he did or didn't and frankly, I don't give a fuck. I was just pointing out the hilarious reactions all over the net when the news broke.
Removing the other OS feature was a lousy move, no doubt about it. The irony is the fact that it was caused by security concerns. They shouldn't have included it in the first place.
I can understand both sides. I hope they don't end up ruining the kid's live, like I said, they'll probably make an example out of him to discourage others from doing the same.
Actually, IGN claimed something about the secondary OS removal now being blamed on cost cutting. Not 100% sure, it was just a glance I caught of it really, but it may be worth looking into. Regardless as to why, it was still a dick move, I think that much everyone can agree on.

I saw that but I don't buy it.
Honestly....me neither.

@Anuubis
Nah, he was already pretty popular from the iphone break. Way more notorious than say...Dark Alex (psp guy).

At least if he gets jailtime, he can just "jailbreak" his way out, amirite?

I hated the first dissidia, felt too much like a shitty dragonball tenkaichi, and the designs for the characters were HORRIBLE (WTF BARTZ!!!). If this plays the same, idc how much of tifa's huge boobs they put in it, no thanks.

@Leyviur

I like how you worded that all, it makes a lot of sense. It's true, corporations are kinda taking control of our entertainment, but the only way to change it is to make your own form of it, or accept it and the laws that (in america at least) we the people agreed to. Sure we could do what someone like geohotz did and alter their media for our own gain, but at least for the time being (moreso if sony wins this lawsuit) it's against the law. You could call geohot a vigilante in what he's doing (he's still an asshole in my opinion, but eh). Maybe he's really trying to take a stand, or maybe he's just (like I figure it honestly) a pathetic kid who wanted more notoriety and fame for doing something, and it backfired. I still figure both Sony and Geohot to be fucking jerks in any case, Sony for being a manipulative greed-based corporation, and Geohot for being a smug basement dweller who thinks he can get away with what he's doing, but atm my favor leans towards sony. Geohot bought a ps3, and if he wasn't happy with the removal of the secondary OS function, he honestly shoulda gotten rid of his PS3 and been done with it. Now he's wasting his money, people's money, his time, sony's time, and a lot of energy on this whole lawsuit debacle when he could have went ahead and maybe made his own console based entertainment system, or applied for a job with sony directly and try to change these issues from the inside.

(btw I'm really enjoying the insights everyone's putting into this, no one I know personally cares to talk about this at all cuz they just wanna pirate their damned games all the time, lets keep it going please)
2950  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Nintendo 3DS Launching at $249.99 on March 27 in the US on: March 24, 2011, 06:09:20 PM
Holy crap. I did some conversions, and the US sales price is 155 pounds
I'm sure it doesn't weigh nearly that much.

Wait a sec, this isn't the pun thread.

On a more serious note, the Radioshack I work at just got them in yesterday. My boss locked up our valuables cage when I came in though, cuz he figured I would have stole one.

...he was pretty smart to do that.

George Hotz runs unsigned software on PS3 -> court
US military runs unsigned software on PS3 -> ...
AHA, it's a conspiracy, the US is in fact behind piracy!


I'll stop now >_>
2952  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: George Hotz (geohot) VS Sony. on: March 24, 2011, 06:01:18 PM
Then why is the US military allowed to do it for their 1716 PS3?
Probably because they aren't pirating games in the foreseeable future.

(wiseass quip was wiseass-tacular, lol)

Aren't the ones the military using for something specific though, and okay'd as well as being reprogrammed with help by Sony?

I hate when cosplayers clearly "don't try". x(
I hate it when they try to hard....like Man-Faye, or Sailor Moon:Big Black Man redux.

Cmon man, you seriously buy into that anti-piracy stuff? He's modifying a console that he's 100% aware of will be used as a means to download and play games for free. His attempt at working with Sony to close up security holes....what's to prevent him from using the information he gets from them to open bigger holes in their programming? Sorry, but you're look at that is a little naive, Anuubis. He knows what it's going to be used for, and if he cared that much about prevention, he'd have not released the root key, but perhaps in an honest attempt to show he's so anti piracy, a crack to reinstall the secondary OS feature, which is what he's swearing up and down about being the reason he did this all in the first place. Considering he also said he doesn't have a psn, which is the only way he'd have updated his system to begin with to lose said feature, which would mean this whole process wasn't necessary anyway, I'd say he's just doing this to get at Sony knowing full well what it's going to do.The domino he knocked down may not be the piracy problem, but he sure as hell has his dominoes lined up with that as the goal.

Obviously, it's all a matter of how much of the truth he's telling and how much is proven in court, but honestly he's too smart to to be that painfully honest.

@MGF Yeah, some people do want just homebrew, I can attest to that. But honestly speaking, how many people who have hacked devices like PSPs and Iphones honestly do it for homebrew alone? Alot less than the guys who pirate, I'm sure. Maybe it's just because I deal with such a large amount of grimy people on a day to day basis, but I'm definitely more inclined to think on the negative side in this all.

(oh, and just to maintain civility for the hopeful duration of all this, I'm not calling out anyone who advocates homebrew or defends geohot's posistion as a pirate or thief or such. This topic is just for opinions, not to condemn or praise anyone...cept geohot, I don't like him much at all >_>)

girls in restaurants who insist on calling everyone "hun", "sugar", "sweetheart" or similar petnames that would normally be used as a term of endearment to one's girl/boyfriend or husband/wife. Fucking rubs me the wrong way. I'm not much better, as I call everyone sir, miss, boss, dude, but mine are more like titles rather than creepy hit on terms.
