I don't even think the PS3 had 9 essential exclusives in its life time, I doubt the PS4 has that many announced so early.

I am interested in inFAMOUS Second Son and No Man's Sky though.

Nah, The Playstation 3 was a bad console, its amazing that Sony even made it.

And 9 essential exclusives im not even sure it had 2 because games like

1: Uncharted 1-2-3 (3 games)

2: Infamous 1-2

3: Heavy Rain

4: God of War

5: Killzone

6:Gran Tourismo

7: Beyond two souls

8: Persona

9: Metal Gear Solid

Sure isn't and particular not The Last of Us......

Playstation 3 more like crapstation right? because Xbox is in da house.

(p.s.u in the above)

The playstation 3 was a fantastic console. I just didn't think their exclusive line up was very essential most of the time. It's just that 3rd parties outclassed them at almost every turn. Same goes for Xbox 360.

Having said that, I greatly enjoyed the inFAMOUS series, had a lot of fun with Ratchet and Clank a Crack in Time, and The Last of Us was quite good for the time I had with it.

i looked through my Ps3 collection and i have all of these plus Ratchet, The last of us, and a lot of other exclusive ps3 titles.

Its doesnt matter that there might be better games out, because sure there is but they are just not exclusive, all that matters is that if you had a PS3 would you pass on these titles. I say if you did you missed out on a essential playing experience, because pretty much all of them have been considered GOTY

How about some pros vs cons lists?

I got a con for you

Lets say we work at the same place, why should you know my salary? you have no reason to know it. Even if he was underpaying you or me, it would just end up hurting us both, since most companies tend to go down instead of up.And as to salary negotiations" think about it both ways, Do you want me to know that you're better at negotiating your salary and end up being penalised if i go into the meeting with that and say "hey why should Bran get more cash than me, we are doing the same job"

Also there is a reason why even among good friends there are two things you just dont talk about Salary and politics. Nothing good comes out of it.

Apparently it's illegal for businesses to tell employees not to discuss salaries with fellow workers. Although companies make this a general rule all the time (and salary discussion can be uncomfortable to have) this was made illegal so that employees can know when others are potentially making more money than they do for the same work.

My question is should salary discussion amongst employees no longer be taboo and do you think it would empower employees to do so? http://hereandnow.wbur.org/2014/07/23/salary-gag-rules

Salery talk is almost like borrowing money to friends a bad bad decision and usually ends up with someone being "angry"

So of course saleries shouldn´t be more transparent and also why would anyone have a interest in anyones salery.

Do you think the cops were excessive here?

Or do you think it's just a case of the cops having to subdue a large man?

Or do you think that the guy should have co operated with the police in the first place?

Let the discussion begin OT.

Of course there was excessive use of force here, but with that in mind just take a look at the guys size and that he was resisting arrest. The guy was a bear.

Anyways all that matters is the chokehold which clearly is forbidden to use so NYPD need to fire that cop.

I don't think that's a fair assumption. It costs money to make dlc also and it is extra content which one isn't obligated to buy so to say they raised the price of their games isn't really all that accurate.

Exactly also as i said with the discounts that are almost always there even before release a game rarely cost 60$. So no they didn´t raise the price.

@Jacanuk: I am not signing up for that email newsletter, so I will not be reading that. What you quoted is not proof the drugs used for the death penalty are untested.

Hmm, strange when i first read it nothing came up but here you go

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/24/us/arizona-takes-nearly-2-hours-to-execute-inmate.html?_r=0

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jul/23/arizona-killer-still-alive-an-hour-after-execution-begins

n his dissenting opinion to the stay of execution issued by the appeals court this week, Kozinski argued that the use in executions of drugs designed to help sick people was an “enterprise doomed to failure”. On Wednesday, he told the Guardian that he had thought about the problems with lethal injections for a long time, and that though his criticisms were not geared specifically to the Wood case in particular, he had decided it was time to speak out.

The use of such drugs was, he said, “a complicated process that is not designed for executions. I had no idea how this would go down in the Wood case, but it's obvious that this is the kind of process where there tends to be these kinds of problems.”

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which has been campaigning against death penalty secrecy in several states, said that Arizona had violated the first amendment, the eighth amendment and the bounds of basic decency.

My interpretation of Kozinski's assertions is that he considers the current method of using medicine which he says is usually meant for curing individuals is inappropriately utilized as a form of captial punishment, but not that it is untested.

I understand it differently particular since these problems didn´t come around until Human rights org. forced Lundbeck to stop selling their medicine which worked like a charm. But anyways it doesn't matter in the end, the fact is that the same no matter if its untested or because they are forced to use 2nd rate drugs.

The Human rights org. are stopping the sale of a drugs proved to work flawlessly which is kinda ironic when you think about it, they call it inhumane but their pratice is actually making it even worse for the death row inmates.

@Pedro: if you didn't like the game, that's fine. But don't force your opinion on everyone who disagrees with you. Many people love The Last of Us (myself included), others don't. It's called an opinion for a reason, and you should let people have one.

If you read what I was responding to, the person was not stating an opinion. And you should take your advice let others have their opinion on the game in the same way you do. No one is imposing anything on you.

Of course that person was stating a opinion, what would even make you think otherwise?

I dont agree

If you are a wise consumer you would also know how to get even new titles for less than full price.

So you don't agree that the price of games are $60 and the season pass is $25-$30? I didn't know that such info was an opinion.

Right because that was what i disagreed with.
