    @Sony drops 3D support, saying customers rejected it
    πŸ˜€ really? How about their pricing, can we reject that as well? The main issue with 3D TV for for now is the lack of 3D content (ah, where’s the porn industry when you need it …). Add to that a pricey TV and you start asking yourself if it’s worth it.
    My issue with 3D gaming is that in order to properly display it in 3D, you need to render the scene twice. Basically you need hardware that can do 120fps in plain 2D mode in order to have 60fps in 3D. Don’t know how many can afford buying such gear.

    @Oddworld creator to EA: β€œFβ€” you very much”
    πŸ˜€ I love this guy! As long as he has a good game, there will be somebody willing to distribute it.

    @Wii U launch developer complains of lackluster CPU:
    Oh my … this is definitely not good. They just aimed for a different ergonomics/usage type and forgot about the computing power …
    This reminds me of a particular phone, where the manufacturer focused mostly on user experience, completely forgetting that the device is still a phone that uses radio waves to communicate πŸ˜› *ahem* iPhone 4 *ahem*

    @Mists of Pandaria sales below expectations according to analyst firm
    Well, there’s that many times you can sell the same game again and again πŸ˜›
    Kidding aside, Jonah does provide a very good explanation.

    @Nintendo Power: it’s bound to happen, due to Internet alone; the more specialized magazine (more niche type of market) the faster the printed version will dead.
    I’m with Jordan on this one. Jonah, I send links to my friends …

    @favourite game of the 90’s:
    Jonah, good point with Unreal Tournament, that game was (if you ask me) the bets of the series. Everything from music to weapons felt better than any of the sequels.
    Now, the reason why I went for Quake 3 is (believe it or not) the bots. Play on nightmare any of the maps that has just one bot, and if the hair on the back of your neck stands up due to fear of being fragged, then you might understand. UT was fun, but could not do THAT.
