A friend of mine told me recently that EAs contract is up this year and that he and others are writing the NFL about not renewing it. I figure it can't hurt so I'm writing them as well. There are actually a lot of people that still consider NFL2K5 the best football sim and still play it yearly.

While I didn't have a problem finding ammo, I hate to say that I agree with this review; bummer.

I always enjoy reading what stupid new thing EA is up too. Going to skip this game. The last time EA got any of my money was 1999, but I am going to buy the DLC for Mass Effect 2 and 3, I do the best I can to not support EA, they have lost it.

I highly doubt that Digital Distribution is what put an end to GAME. From what I have read that company had many issues. I don't really like Digital Distribution, except for small games I don't care much about, like Minecraft. I would much rather have a physical copy; hard drives crash, connections go out, can't lend or borrow gams, ect., not fun.

Going with AMD is a good move, all of the crazy SONY tech. like Emotion Engine and Cell never live up to what SONY says performance wise and just makes development harder. It seems odd to me that to play a game the console would have to have a internet connection, that would end up in a ton of lost sales, still a lot of people with no connection. It will be interesting to see how the used games thing works out, if it's true I'll skip a PS4.

It's definately an interesting concept, though I'm not sure who the target audience would be. The "typical" game player might find it rather boring with such a minimal amount of interaction, at least from what I saw and have read; and on the other end someone who just enjoys the story portion and not a lot of interaction might prefer just relaxing and watching a movie. It's pretty cool and I'm glad someone made it and got it out there, now it's up to the people to see how well it's accepted. It's wierd to me how some game engines are recognizable. While I was watching the 3 min "Opening Gameplay" video I thought "This really seems like the Source engine", and according to this video it is.

Looks pretty good, I hope you can opt-out of using the touchscreen parts. Still need to finish Uncharted 3.

When this thing hits $150 I'll be getting one, looks pretty nice. It's still hard to believe how long it takes companies, not just SONY, to to do the most obvious of things and have 2 analog sticks; makes you wonder if any of the people that design products have spent 5 mins. playing video games.

Great video! I started playing Morrowind on my PC but at the time I was working 100+ hrs a week, I also played it on the XBOX and was still working too much to play it as much as I would have liked to. When Oblivion was released I was working about 50hrs a week so I had time to put in and in the end it was about 220hrs, played it on and off for a couple of years. There will always be things about the older games that will be missed for any series as more time and effort is spent on graphics, animations, speech ect., but they are all pretty special in their own ways. If Skyrim is 10% as good as it looks like it is then it will be a killer game and one worthy of a few hundred hours.

I would rather Rockstar just push the game back to 2013 and release it on the new consoles, it's not much time to wait for what the improvements would bring.
