Anytime there is an article that can support an anti (insert system here) agenda it seems to get posted here nowadays.

I doubt he would sell it once he saw how cool the thing was. At least it wasn't a Mac.

The stronger PC and years supply of Chicken would be cooler. I'm not one to get hung up on how a plastic box to play games on looks anyways. Which is why I was mostly indifferent to the behemoth known as X1, and don't really care what the PS4 looks like.

Dude its from Halo 2 days... don't care to change it. I just read and occasionally post. Can you deny that we know nothing of PS4? I mean seriously... how old is everyone on here? You hear one whisper of DRM and its game over M$ when in fact Sony filed for a patent involving DRM and their gaming division!!!! Wake up people... its the new generation not just M$. If anything I bet at E3 they both pull out of the DRM craze. It is a bull blog link that looks like a five year old designed. Are we really buying into this link?

I accepted it during a time I really needed a new laptop and didn't care for selling and making a profit out of. I don't even care for making a profit out of it because I'm doing just fine with my income.

Nostalgia is lame anyways. Many reasons Ninty still sells their games are based on that alone.

It's not "lame" when you get actual enjoyment from playing retro games. Many of those games have managed to stand the test of time, despite dated graphics. You're seriously underestimating how big a deal this is to many of us.

The mind craves for formulations and definitions, always eager to squeeze reality into a verbal shape.

When you can formulate a reasonable argument as to why Super Metroid isn't still better than most games today then perhaps someone will take you seriously, and one of the points can't be "it isn't 3D".

be funny if MS couldn't squash or counter rumors at E3, there will be no more excuses this time.
