  1. Last I checked it was you that was taking things too seriously. I made a post and you bombarded it. Follow your own advice. And as far as links go, like I said, the internet is not where a business goes to get facts. Contacts and carefull analysis are utilized instead of gaming websites. Whether you agree with me or not really doesn't matter, it's your opinion and your welcome to it, but taking it into an argument is pretty sad. Just accept the fact that, based on my sources, my facts refute yours. We'll see who's right in the end. *waits for next flame*
  2. I'm 25 and have worked in the game industry for 3 years. The majority of information you get from the internet is completely false. Most of it is simply from rumors started by who knows where. My main job is to keep up on what's going on and, more importantly, keep track of any "motivational reason" for companies to do what they do. Sony DOES care what MS does with XBox. As does MS keep track and care what Sony does with PS. They are direct competitors in a very competitive market. What one does affects the other greatly. I'm not sure where you think you get off judging me or making assumptions about me but you sound like an ass. Go ahead and call me more names and make more inaccurate analysis. Anyone remotely close to this subject knows that what I'm saying is true. And being a game nerd doesn't mean a thing. It just means you like to play video games. I've met hundreds of game nerds and, from your post, you're just like the rest of them.
  3. As I said, PS3 is still basically a concept. They've set literally dozens of release dates for it but none have happpened. It's just Sony's little marketing way of keeping attention on them. MS has been working on the XB2 since the first hit shelves. They want to make a serious run at console gaming and XBox has risen in power dramatically over the last two years. Again, Sony will hold out on PS3 and try to head off MS's run for the gold when they go to release XB2. It'll be interesting to say the least and consumers should benefit greatly from it.
  4. As far as I've been told PS3 is still just a concept. Sony released the PSX in Japan last year and now the PSP this year globally. Add to it, the PS2 is still making serious $$ for Sony and they see no reason to fork over millions when they can keep making profit without further investment outside of production costs. Keep an eye on MS and what they do with XBox. That's PS2's only rival and Sony won't let MS one-up em'.
  5. PSP = PlayStation Portable It's essentially a take-it-with-you Playstation. Difference being it takes smaller discs so, unlike many thought in early '03, you can't use older games with it, you have to buy them again in the new format.
  6. The main thing to remember here is Nintendo is known for it's handhelds. Hands down, they've shut out all others that try to compete. However, with the onset of these "nexgen" handhelds we have a problem. The game companies are now getting handheld into the realm of 32bit. That's pretty spectacular. That in mind, Sony has had the console market cornered for years and has only recently, with the introduction of the XBox, lost some footing. In short, you're looking at two top-notch companies with solid backgrounds and plenty of cash. The only way to find out which is better, DS or PSP, is to go and try them out for yourself. Either one is a good choice.
  7. You know it's coming. You feel it coming. But you're never quite ready for it! Scared the crap out of me! thx! ::changes now soaked clothing::
  8. You can adjust the transparency to your liking as well as all of the look of the meter. It's pretty darn cool.
  9. DU Meter is pretty cool. You can customize the display and it's pretty small so it tucks real nice in the corners.
  10. I've been using Kaspersky AV. It gets alot of stuff you never thought of. Had it running beside a few others and KAV caught much more. I like it much better than NAV, MAC, or AVG. AVG is a close second though.

  12. My connection is as tweaked as it can get. I've been around the block a bit when it comes to broadband so all the little tricks are in place with my box. I'm coming off of 1000/128 cable, had to have it briefly before the big upgrade, So tweaked or not I feel the difference.
