    Oh yeah, oops.

    Wow, March 31st was a few weeks ago!? Man… I’m living in some alternative universe 🙂

    – Natal … well, it’s a chicken vs. eggs dilema: nobody would by Natal because there are no games for it, and game producers won’s make a Natal based game because there are not enough people having Natal.
    Making a game for Natal or not is a decision that might turn into a financial error.

    – how many PSP versions are there anyway?! Jennifer is right, people will get confused. Heck, I’m confused …
    Numbers are not that bad though, they help me with PC parts; having different names for almost-the-same products however is confusing.
    (I know the differences between GeForce 7300 GT, GeForce 7300 GS, GeForce 7300 LE, GeForce 7300 SE but it is so damn confusing!)

    – Blizzard and consoles? Sounds more like the Activision side trying to make more money by limitting PC piracy.
    What’s funny is that Blizzard already has a way arround piracy (WoW anyone?).

    – @Take Two: Derrick, you’ve made a good point there.

    – @BlueRay3D: dunno about replaying stuff in 3D. You’d need to send one set of images to just one eye, and another set of images for just the other one.
    Without special glasses that will not be possible.
    From this being just an attempt to create a market, well, this sounds a lot like Natal …
    But who knows, as bad (or good?) as it sounds, the adult movies intustry made VHS tapes a success, maybe they’ll pick up this 3D vision thinggie.

    What wow-ed me in 2009? A move made by Epic:
    http://udk.com/launch.html
    I get it, they’re doing it to gain market share. In worst case they make no money and gain market. Best case scenario they make a truckload of money out of the games using it, without lifting a finger, and they gain market.

    Anyway, I didn’t expect that move. Congrats Epic!

    Well, 30 weeks ago, but that’s still no excuse :p

    Things that wow’ed me: being at E3 and playing games well in advance like God of War III, The Beatles: Rock Band, and Dragon Age. The Brink demonstration there wow’ed me the most, as did attending the introduction of Project Natal and the Milo demo.

    As for games, Batman: Arkham Asylum and Assassin’s Creed II were big surprises, as was Halo 3: ODST’s co op multiplayer.
