Soo no flavour then? At least it's marginally better than a Pot Noodle - it passes on the soya protein bits...
Besides, this sounds like those 1-a-day multivitamins in shake form...

Re: Rip off Britain
Get it from Amazon.com, £319 inc estimated import tax. HEy, it's something... that £30 can go towards a game or a controller!
Pointless without decent delivery
If Amazon keep using that very high class delivery company known as Yodel, then all their work is totally useless, as Yodel are pretty much the most unreliable company I've ever had to deal with.
Re: Steam vs Xbox game = invalid comparison
Thats not a very good analogy I'm afraid. Steam requires a Key for the game you're trying to play to be linked to your Steam account. If it isn't - it won't run.
XBox games will be on bluray - and you can easily copy these in the same way as having the required files on your PC for a Steam game.
Neither will run unless you circumvent the DRM.
Mercury obviously just had a real bad cold back then.
Isn't that pushing April Fool jokes a bit too close to the next day? People might actually take this seriously :P
Did I get a downvote for mentioning Micro$oft?
True, but I'd probably like to play more than the very few Linux games out there.
Of course, I'm not suggesting that there is a magical solution to this, it's just a shame that things like Wine are just not up to the task of playing modern games.
Naturally it's all M$' fault anyway for using DirectX to control the market.
Soon as Linux can play Windows games without fuss, then I will happily switch. Not a good enough reason? I can't imagine I'm alone in the casual PC userbase.

Here's a tip for NRA people all over the US.

I have to just step in and say that, with very few exceptions, this is the most 'civilised' Trek vs B5 conversation I have ever seen!
Normally, by this point, I'd be reading Mom 'jokes' and the occasional death threat.
A pint for all!
3 Reasons why game sales are declining.
1) Obsession with DRM on PC - Simcity V will not only have always-on DRM, but also cloud based saved games, with no way to save offline. No internet connection = no game. This sort of thing just pisses people off and makes them work harder to pirate a game. OF course, we all know the other main reason for this sort of thing; DLC, and due to the success of Sim City 4 and The Sims modding community, EA don't want that, and will force you to only upgrade from their own online store.
2) DLC. Games released with obviously held-back content and then sold as DLC is pissing people off and makes them work harder to pirate a game. If you're going to release DLC, then do it as something totally new and unrelated to the plot of the original game (Assassin's Creed I'm looking at you), instead of just adding 'extra' missions and stuff.
3) Stop pandering to the 15 year old 'I don't need to think, therefore I won't' population. Making games more 'accessible' and 'streamlined' is an insult to those of us who CAN think, and is encouraging those who can't think to never need to. Selling the same tired old crap with new paint is being noticed by everyone, but those developers who would love to add new things to make games more interesting, are being told by publishers to not do it in case 15 yr old Nigel doesn't know how to press more than 2 buttons in at the same time, and actually needs to read words to figure out what to do next, rather than follow a huge GO HERE! arrow.
Oh and it pisses people off and encourages them to pirate the game as it's probably the same as the last one they bought only with a higher version number.
4*) Develop games for the PC, then make it fir on consoles so we actually have games that will push the boundaries of today's technology, rather than stifle it for 6 year old consoles.
* I thought of another reason, and can't be bothered to update the topic.
