News
Microsoft to extend Xbox 360 warranties at $1 billion cost   -- "This problem has caused frustration for some of our customers and for that, we sincerely apologize," said Robbie Bach, president of Microsoft's entertainment and devices division, in a statement.
 
PS3 price slashed to $499 --The console wars just got a whole lot hotter. No, not in that way. Sony's perennially overpriced PS3 is about to get a welcome pricebreak to the tune of $100, at least according to a scan of an upcoming Circuit City advertisement leaked onto the interwebs.
 
Jack Tretton: On the PS3 price drop  Jack Tretton from Sony America was interviewed by a CNBC business analyst on WHY Sony is dropping the price only 230 days after the release of the PS3. As we clearly see and hear he could not come up with what we all wanted to hear.
 
Racist Paintjobs Slip Through Forza 2 Moderation -- User created content has been enabled in a much broader capacity with the current generation of hard drive and internet enabled consoles and software that aims to take advantage of this hardware. This a trend we'll see more of than less over the course of the generation, with software like LittleBigPlanet, Forza Motorsport 2 and Mii creation generating a great deal of buzz with gamers.

Just wanted to put this in here before everyone gets a chance to listen to the show. Maybe, just maybe, I was a little too strong in stating that I will no longer buy games that don't use a party system for matchmaking. Time will tell, it's just that I get so frustrated when I play games with a great matchmaking system ie: Halo 2, Halo 3, Shadowrun, and Saints Row just to name a few off the top of my head. Why doesn't Microsoft just make this standard across the board? Like I said, I have Ghost Recon 2, Gears of War, and Rainbow Six Vegas, which are all great games. Sad to say but they are all sitting on the shelf because any time I think about playing, I pass because I know it will end up being a major waste of my valuable time. I mean, I have probably played more Halo 2 in recent months then all of these games combined. Not because Halo is a better game, but because I know that I can get in with my buddies and roll through match after match so easily. So until MS makes this a standard for Live games I will definitely use extreme prejudice when spending my hard earned money.

I KNEW you'd come back around. I think we all agree with you, and there's no reason for a Microsoft title to not have a matchmaking system. But your initial statement was pretty strict, and it was just a matter of time before you backed down. smile

On another note, I wanted to thank DeaconBlade 360 again for participating on this podcast. It was great having him join our madhouse.

By the way, what I was trying to say at the end of my message was "kill NIN". Microsoft Sam didn't quite get the pacing down right for it to be clear.

NIN would be referring to fellow 360 plex-er NIN. "Kill NIN" used to be our faithful rallying cry just before we started up a game of Halo 2. Occasionally, we would say it before a game of RSV, but since he's getting good at those games, it's losing its niche.
