Maybe I'm not being attacked or something? But I'm a man, why don't I feel attacked? Where is this mystery attack coming from?
Is it really this easy to grift the average conservative voter? I should switch careers, seems like easy money.
I don't quite understand this. If this approach is good for mobile phone devices, why shouldn't it also apply to video game consoles? I can't see any consistent reason to not treat the two similarly.
Gonna guess because consoles are sold at or near cost while phones are sold for profit. That's a business model issue for the manufacturer though, not a developer problem so the rules should be the same.
no matter the publicity, as long as it continues to be infinitely easier to catch an Uber than a Cab when you're a minority, Uber will continue to be used.
a standard Windows-compatible PC doesn't play PS3 games.
before it was removed, the PS3 could play PS3 games AND run Linux.
the hoops were definitely real though... the only reason i even had screenshots of PS3 Linux was i got MGS4 a week early and some people wanted to know how big the game was so i booted into Linux and opened the mounted disk and took screencaps.
i had my serial number because i always took pictures of the serials and also typed them down and backed up the files.
many many people would not be able to do either of those things in 2016.
Actually, none of them have blown up and the danger of them being a fire hazard was grossly exaggerated by ad revenue based reporting.
The most popular and sensational stories were all determined to be faked or misidentified.
Actual verified incidents only caused minor heat transfer damage to property and treat and release skin irritation.
I'm not on Verizon, but if I were, I would probably be changing the IMEI to that of a different device right about now.
The 250MB limit is great, it's $50/yr and it means i don't have to tether my phone all the time when i'm away from Wifi. What's not so great is the $70 more than the 16GB model for the 32GB model, or the additional $130 for the 4G model. No doubt that added price is a factor in why there's even a $50 annual plan...
well, if their free to play Console games are pay to win like Battlefield Heroes, i'll be skipping... if $60 is the price to pay for a game where everyone has a fair shot instead of the riich buying their way to a win, i'm out!
The best result would be for EA to continue this until Zynga goes bankrupt, then ultimately lose. Copyright doesn't and shouldn't cover this type of cloning.
2) The Wii was shown at e3 2005, but the Wii Remote wasn't actually unveiled until the Tokyo Game Show 2005 in September of that year
There is a similar problem with Mediacom, and they do this on such a low level that it still replaces error pages and search results even when using 3rd party DNS. And their 'Opt Out' page seems to forget that you opted out every few days to every few weeks.
the thing is, people EXPECT to be able to return something for a refund if it doesn't work as advertised. now, seven days is a very long time, but it's much more agreeable than fifteen minutes or one day. ideally, everything should have a demo or trial version, but many things digital may just not be able to stand on their own at a price when their trial or demo is good enough and there aren't enough differences between it and the paid version. there is no simple solution, but a simple solution is what people want. honestly, stores with physical goods have to put up with much more when it comes to returns. they have to restock or sell as open box or in some cases send the item back to the manufacturer for repackaging. with digital goods, there is an infinite supply, so when a developer is against trials or refunds, it looks like money hoarding or a vote of no confidence in their products.
so they don't want my money? ok...
how many tweets with links does it take to be in violation of their trademark? i mean, is it 10? 20? half of their daily content? "when we see it, we'll know"? is there even a line?
And that's about the only large company that does. Several people with a Japanese Wii or DS have gotten it repaired by Nintendo of America. I don't know of any other company that will knowingly repair an item made for and bought in another country.
A FTC study from 2008 showed that M rated Video Games are harder for underage consumers to buy than R rated and Unrated DVD's, R rated Movie Tickets and Explicit Music CD's.
This doesn't even take into account that all current videogame systems (Xbox 360, Wii, PS3) and every handheld (DSi, PSP) except the original DS also have parenal controls that can block the playing of games based on the game's rating.
The 360 and PS3 also allow parents to block communication such as voice chat on child accounts, and the Wii has a friends code system where you have to exchange friends codes to be able to communicate.
