Console multiplayer gaming
I think a lot of it has to do with the advent of decent console multiplayer capability. Coupled with the fact that a high end graphics card alone costs the same as an entire PS3 (and you'll probably spend the same again in 2-3 years when it can suddenly only run Sim Tower), people are taking the logical choice and going console. Especially as most of the big new games are multi platform (COD4).
I for one welcome the change. No more pissing around with graphics/sound/chipset drivers, installing, patches, x-fire, teamspeak, punkbuster, multiple accounts, buying new hardware, patching XP/Vista... then start again when the whole lot needs reinstalling when you get a new board, OS upgrade or a fucking virus.
The cheek of it.
My other half thought I was a bit weird for shouting 'CHEEKY BASTARDS' at a kids toys on TV... that took some explaining.
Calm down dear!
It's a commercial!
1.44 hours a week, otherwise known as 17.28 lonely single BT engineer hand shandies (at 5 minutes a piece). I think it's time The Reg online standards convertor was updated to include time..

It's like bloody ISPs offering 'unlimited broadband' as long as it's under 15gb!!
It's not exactly had to be done before, pretty ingenious as it's going to be constructed next to the plant then slowly wheeled over the top of the 1986 mess. Plus it's designed so that the plant can be deconstructed from within it, and will contain its contents if the current carcass were to collapse.
Considering that there's not much between the 95% of radioactive crap that's still sitting in the current carcass and our atmosphere, I'll be glad when Chernobyl Arch is in place.
