I use NCIX.com as well.. fairer prices, decent shipping and a good selection IMO... but I am always open for other options ;)

Wow, while the announcement wasn't unexpected, the expectations itself of the successor to the original Starcraft will be HUGE. I do hope that Blizzard will do it justice. I enjoyed the first Starcraft, but admit that I am not that big a fan of the RTS genre... but, this game is a license to print m...

Regardless of where the adult industry shows their support, can those sales really make that much of a difference in this day and age of adult content ALL over the internet, and much of the time for FREE? :? Why would someone pay for HD adult entertainment when they could probably look (and find) si...

Oh crap! That's what I thought when I read the thread title! Monolith also made a few other past favourites of mine: Shogo (anime-flavoured FPS w/mechs :)), and No One Lies Forever (FPS spoofing spy movies)..

I believe that this Monolith created the Xenosaga games... :?

Anyone who wants a bigger HD in their 360 should just mod it themselves and swap out the included HD with their desired storage capacity. It can't be much harder than swapping HD's in a computer, could it?

And the retail price for the optional larger 360 HD is a HUGE ripoff... US$180 I think?

Sony will counter with their own $300 Blu-Ray player if it comes to that. They have too much invested in Blu-Ray tech to lose this format war... That, and every PS3 would be a brick and need to be replaced with HD-DVD drives. They cannot/will not let HD-DVD one-up them like this.

Hmmmm... interesting procedure... I might have to try that out sometime as well. My painting skills leave much to be desired :?

So, how slow is slow when you're lifting the piece out from the paint? To avoid any runniness/marks, I would think that you would have to pull it up verrrrry slowly...

Yes, all sports gaming should change with the Wii... Apparently, EA's footbal game for the Wii (Madden?) is a brand new game with the new control scheme :shock: I'm not a footbal gamer, so I wouldn't know... but a Wii hockey game sounds great ;)

My understanding is that most console makers will initially lose money on the hardware side of things, but that the loss is made up in software sales and/or peripherals. M$ has stated that the 360 is finally making a profit this year, if I'm not mistaken, so it took 1 yr of availibility and sales to...

The 360 Elite price point is close to the PS3, but it does not include a next-gen dvd drive (HD-DVD or Blu-Ray)... the PS3 offers Blu-Ray for just a little more $. And the bigger HD does not justify such a large price point. The PS3 price point was most likely an influence on the Elite price point.....
