    @PSP Go Price Goes Back to $200 After 3 Days
    I honestly don’t know what to believe. Looks like a mistake. Good point from Jonah, now every person (that cares about it) will wait for the price to go down :).

    @Industry Struggling With Casual and Mobile Game Market:
    All industries that sell information or information services (be it music records, movies, games, communication services) get affected by how the information technology evolves.
    There’s also a need to follow the social trends, not only the technology, and this is where some industries lack behind. I don’t see record companies doing what Nine Inch Nails did:


    @Gamer Loses $1800 In Games from Steam:
    … that’s dumb. If you were caught once, why the heck would you try it again?

    Now, another question: did Valve just take preemptive actions? Because if they did, that can turn bad for them.

    Now, if you really want to sell a game you own on Steam, make one Steam account for each game. Then sell only THAT account.

    @Netflix vs. Facebook: Jennifer, very good point there, with the interests of the said bank 😀

    And no, Jonah, it was not the ‘Tom Cruise Mission Impossible’, it was the TV series Mission Impossible:


    Carmack is more interested in the game engine rather than the game itself. Tim Willits is the ‘game’ guy from Id, along with John Romero.

    @Question of the week: I’d go for GDC as well, because I’m more interested in how games are made, and because I’m not Average Joe 😛

    @PSP Go – I am ashamed to admit that I have owned not just one, but three PSP’s. At this point Sony seems to be cranking out system after system without putting enough in it. It seems like the only thing they do it make it slimmer.

    @Gamer Losing 1800 – If he wants to sell his account he should find someone privately not announce it. I think that people will never read the ULA no matter how short it gets. Its just that part of the registration where you click the check box and hit next.

    Unfortunately it wasn’t good news at all. My son was diagnosed with Leukemia a week or so ago and we’re working to get him better. Spending a lot of time in the hospital with him and we’ve not got time to record anything until he’s able to come home.

    Fuuu …
    Sorry about the news, I was hoping for something “we won a one month trip to Hawaii” kind of thing …
    Anyway, family comes first.
