Microsoft are watching out now, yes?

It’s no question that Sony has nearly isolated themselves in the video game industry. Rushing an overpriced console on an anticipative people with absolutely no software to make up for the complete lack of profit on the console was nothing short of a poor business move. The integrated Blu-ray made it a cheap and upgradable DVD player in comparison, but $599 for a new game console was a budget dent very few people braved.

Separation of Church and your face

This article started as a comment on a friend’s blog, but I ended up typing what would appear in a tiny comment box as an entire article in and of itself. We all know what sensitive subjects these are, and this article, along with those linked herein, are sure to somewhat upset someone, somewhere, at sometime.
