WOW. When can I reserve it!?!?!?!

Ok, I understand that many organizations just want their voices to be heard and that there are some sensitivities due to people's experiences with the issue. However, if everyone in the world was PC regarding everyone's sensitivities, the world would come to a screeching halt and nothing would get done. I sympathize with MADD, but this is just a game. Personally, I would rather have people get their kicks driving drunk in a video game than in the real world.
WOW! I'm really impress with the currently list of songs. Metallica is a HUGE win for the game knowing the band's efforts to preserve their songs over the years. Can't wait to see what other songs will round our the game!
One again its people jumping at the gun without doing a little research. Perhaps if these people did some research about the whole series before making judgments from a one minute trailer, they would have realized that isn't the case. Caucasian, Spanish, Hispanic and Africans have been killing each other back and forth in this game through its history. As illustrated by shogunerik, Breakout's Mark Wilkins killed white people in the game...where was the outrage? When Resident Evil 4's Leon Scott Kennedy was killing Spanish people, where was the outrage? But now that it is black people, it's a problem. All I have to say is hypocrites. Where are these people when black people commit racial crimes? Are they condoning their actions, speaking out against it...no. Where are they when a black person starts saying statements that every civil leader and activist would condone as racist if it comes from a person of a different race than African American? No where to be found.
So let me get this straight - because someone is making virtual money, paying for virtual goods from a computer game, they should have to pay taxes to the government in the real world? That has to be the stupidest thing I have ever heard. First off, more than 20 percent of my wages go toward taxes, and that is not including the sales tax that is attached to EVERYTHING I buy. So that is more like 30 percent. Secondly, virtual money and goods have no value in today's marketplace. But the government wants it taxed...ok, fine. I'll pay taxes on virtual goods and earnings when they make it so I can walk into McDonald's and buy a Big Mac with my virtual money.
Cpbeats... So because you have all these systems, that makes you an expert? Please...anyone can go out and buy all the systems they want at retailers and eBay. Also, any fool with a computer can claim he/she is an expert on something by doing a quick Google search to make them seem intelligent. What makes an expert is the ability to give intelligent, unbiased information about the industry and issues based on FACTS, something you have shown you can't. The Wii is selling because it is fun to play, and game sales numbers since its launch show just that. Innovation isn't just power and speed. If that were the case, the PS3 would be in first and the PSP would be overtaking the DS. A system can have all the power, graphic capabilities, internet connections and memory available, but it means nothing if it isn't fun to play. Saying that, the PS3 will come into its own when better games come out, but the $600 bill is a major deterrent to all except the hardcore market. Very nice you have money to buy all the systems you want, but in the real world many people have school, food, mortgage (or rent), insurance, car payments and more that comes first. $600 out of a monthly budget is a hard hit for many people. Also, the XBox 360 will take many sales away from both companies in Q4 with the Halo 3 launch. While the MGS and Final Fantasy series are high points for Sony, they will not drive the kind of sales Sony needs to make up their deficit. By the way, if you are interested in selling your Wii, I can put you in contact with a few hundred thousand people who want it.
