Demand for consoles, add-ons skyrockets as PC games plunge

Louis

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.

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..

(I accept no liability for any dodgy half arsed incorrect maths that may have occured in this comment).

The tourist took full advantage of the situation and asked for something to take away the venom, but keep the swelling?

PS3 update fails to fix Grand Theft Auto IV woes

Louis

lolwut

Well mine certainly used to freeze up before the patch - disabling the internet connection got it going again prior to the patch coming out. Since then it's been perfectly behaved.

Meh

Who cares what the public thinks of it -it's got everyone talking about it. At least they're getting away from 'James Bond: Pussy McHairy'-esque titles as well.

It was something to the tune of "MAKE SOME MOTHER F#*!£&G NOISE!"

Chernobyl to get new steel lid

Louis

RE: Right...

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.

Outstanding gullibility as performed by commenters of this thread! Maybe The Reg need to introduce a 'tongue in cheek' gauge for the 'simpler' breed of readers..

RoTW?

As this characters name doesn't seem to want to go away, and he's not entirely sure who 'Rufus' actually is.. I recommend we start a Rufus of The Week (RoTW) as I get the feeling this may go on for a while!!

Exploding curry menaces 747

Louis

100ml liquid restriction..

How the hell did she get that amount of curry past security checks?! - It could have been filled with an explosive substance..

Saying that, I regularly create dirty bombs after eating micro-curry.
