If you don't like Gamespot, then why are you bothering to comment? Or is your life that sad?

It's their job to criticize not sure if you noticed? it's not about building a game up it's about showing how the game may or may not appeal towards certain audiences, I love GTA 5, I qued up at midnight and I won't lie it's knocked off every single game I've ever loved from the throne, but I know it may not appeal to everyone, it's their job to do that, they can't score a perfect 10 because the game may not be perfect for everyone.

FYI: it's not called murder when soldiers kill each other. Especially if the soldier being killed has a rocket launcher aimed at your head.

Whatever Valve does with SteamBox, it just needs to be cheaper than is currently looking.  Considering how modest a Mac/PC it will run well on, and the massive competition with primary competitors and Android/iOS devices, it really needs to be around $200.00 or less to have a snowball's chance to make it.

I do not understand why if i am using Firefox the embedded video does not play. But if i filter the mp4 file out as link it plays as a quicktime. I have quicktime plugin installed btw.

And with safari browser, the embedded wideo is playing...

What can i do to let the video play in Firefox on Mac OS ?

Well, as for the Steam Box, no, count me out. I already have all the gaming boxes, rectangles and triangles I need.


LOL at the Saints Row DLC. You can always count on them to do silly stuff like that.


I haven't purchased GTA V because I needed to take care of the games I have, but haven't played yet. Tomb Raider is done, so now my atention goes to Dead Space 3 and Bioshock infinite.

t-shirt a bit too punny this time ^^;

Not sure why I'm commenting. Nothing to add or anything except that I really wish my ps3 wasn't all broken so I could play GTA V.

Hopefully that PC version isn't too far into the future.

I can't tell if Valve is the least greedy or the greediest.

So few comments.  Everyone must be busy at GTAV.

Slow day on the news, sure took Activision Blizzard a long time to figure out that the AH was detrimental to D3's overall game experience.

Steam Box = FAIL.

Gabe doesn't like Windows and wants Linux to run his Box.  He doesn't want to pay royalties to Microsoft, but wants you to buy HIS stuff and use HIS Steam service...

@phbz I think It's a Chewie Guevara t-shirt and it's awesome!

@artphotodude Finding a good price point for that thing is gonna be tough, because yeah, you want to take advantage of a PC's power, but you have so many competitors priced lower than that would probably cost.

@dobpat Go to firefox tools, options, applications tab, and find out what file formats are using quicktime and change them to your desired player, that is if you have the plugin for it in firefox.

It really is an amazing world that Rockstar North has created. I'm not trying to rub your nose in it, I can feel your pain.

If you are waiting for the PC, then the wait will be worth it but how long that will be, is still a mystery.

@dpclark so what?  he swears Linux is "the future of gaming" and alongside trying to prove it he's giving you the option to install Windows on the box anyway if you're not convinced.  Developers are increasingly porting existing games over as well.  go shill for MS somewhere else.

@dpclark Are you aware that Microsoft does have a console? It's called Xbox, in case you didn't know.

If you talk to people who work on storage and complex computers systems/servers most of them prefer to work on Linux.  It's pretty well liked among the savvy computer people across the globe, as I can see you are not one of them.

@maitkarro @dobpat It was set to video/mp4 QucikTime plugin but it dows not work.

I have a feeling that it has to do with a wrong MIME Type maybe ? But i am no expert here :(

MIME says Flash and it is a wrapped mp4 file i think.

But why does safari play it then ?

@h3nks @masfima1 Jess is from Gamespot Australia, Chris is from Gamespot US, it would be difficult.

Go buy a Steam Box. Worst of both worlds.  No one cares. Enjoy your 3 Linux games...

@dpclark @crix01 Just to point out Microsoft is a much bigger (and greedy) company (they do software and hardware). Glad i could help.
