The reason for this is that the games industry should be making $44 Billion a year, at the end of this console season. If a group only got a quarter of that amount, they would still be doing well.

To be blunt, this guy is more well known as a Complainer then a videogame maker. It is to the point that he has not made a game in years. He may have a point, or he may be trying for some weird Political Power through gaming

It really is an interesting article. When the PlayStation Portable came out I saw a similar trend. The DS was making money. The PSP was losing it. So long as the DS sold a game per system, they would make way more money then the PSP. It was an eary thought. And it seems to be what is causing the downfall of the PSP.
The idea of selling at a loss has been around since the original PlayStation. Sony takes a loss for the first 2 - 2.5 years. The idea is that Games will make you break even. But if the games are putting the publishers at a loss as well, then it means that the more profitable system will win again.
Basically it is very similar to the .Com Industry bubble burst. The companies that where built to make money are still around. They are making quite a bit of money still. The majority of the companies did everything at a loss, expecting to make it back from investors and product sales. But they rarely had a good product to sell. So it burst.
Sony is selling the PS3 at a loss, with the idea that everything inside it will begin to sell well. A Blue Ray drive will help sell Blue-Ray movies. The HDMI cords and HD capabilities will sell TVs. The thing is though, most people will not be buying a HD TV. Blue Ray is competing with Downloadable content - which is much cheaper for everyone involved, and adds the ability to update every program pretty easily- And thus we see that PS3 will be at a loss.
This is a bit sad for me. I do like the Nintendo Systems better, but I realize that the other systems have some great games. I have been hoping that the Nintendo Wii will have emulators for PS2 and PS1 systems, as well as the XBox and Dreamcast. This would be easier for me, having only one system to hook up is quite convenient. And signs point to this happening. Which would make the ability to play PS2 games on the PS3 useless.
Sony can still make money. In fact the PS3 may be able to help them out. The ability to hold a smaller tax for system on the older systems may help them out. Think about it, the contracts with Sony for certain games may still stand. Those products would be easy to manufacture and sell, either online or on disk. Sony makes a profit off of those, Plus Nintendo makes money off the System sales and new games. A win/Win situation.
Will this happen. I have no idea, but it would be convenient for me. I happen to want to play Okami.

I think I already posted this. But it is so accurate on what they feel like and stuff. The ones I have seen where blocked by modern suburbia so it wasn't as bad. Though there was a rain cloud over it. This lead to mud falling from the sky. It was so amazing.
I wish to point out that the CG here has the Anime effect on.
One of the tough parts about all this updating for the blog is that I have to place videos. I tried to send like 20-30 videos, and so far they have not arrived.

I wanted to add the link part. This way, if you click on the "Link" you go to what I posted about. It was only recently discovered that this was not happening. The Blogger people have not updated there info on how to add the link on the cooler templates. So this is very annoying for me.
My brother had a dream about a game called Cooking Mama. It was for the DS and involved a Mario like character making food. He made a comment about it to me. And I told him that it existed. He was surprised to find out his dream was true.

I hate the film on number one. It is the reason why I don't really care if I watch a lot of Highschool films. It makes everyone feel happy about how much we have in common. In the end the Nerd is bilked by every one into doing the homework. While all these other students where saying, "That is so me." I was thinking the same thing. Only with the idea of revenge.
Lets be honest, most Higshcool flicks are about preppy teens who can't get there heads out of themselves. They never notice other peoples pain or sorrow. And the NERD ENDS UP DOING THE HOMEWORK!!!!
I have seen some of these and liked them. But why on earth hasn't anyone else caught on to the tragedy that is, "The Breakfast Club"
Who is Tracey Ullman?
I am watching the episodes right now. Quite interesting to watch the characters change over time. Near the end they appear as the characters we would recognise.
It also has the Simpsons games for the NES, Gameboy, and Genesis. I have to say that the Genesis/SNES had some great Simpsons Games. The one that beats it is on my Gamecube. I hope to have the simpsons games soon though

No really, I am in total aw. And have no way of really competing with these people.
The Big Screen sort of snuck in there. But some Scientists believe that a new form of Physics will have to be used to describe how the Pioneer Space probes changed speed after going beyond Jupiter.
Then why the Smeg do they have 2? They have to have people coming to them to have such a thing happen. And why is it that every person clothing looks like it came from JC Penneys?
Great for a good laugh though.
I have this map. A beautifully done map, with the feeling that someone lives there. I may never get to tour the actual building, but I will know how to maneuver around it. I also know the place to put the TV.
Really this is a great idea for architecture. Mapping was what introduced me to how fun it is. With the level editor, I can walk throuhg a building of my making and see how it really feels. Then add what materials it should have. Very good idea really.
Here is her You Tube account. Apparently its videos of a 16 year old Girl that is not. It seems to have been recieving a ton of info and speculation. Some have guessed that this is some kind of hoax. I mean really, popular videos that do not involve porn.

Isn't this the same movie?
Many more are on the link. I will update when I can. If you have any ideas for a story, or a new movie name. Email me or something.
This makes my future job look so cool. The big thing to notice is that the y freezed some of the cars during pans. They where just floating in mid-air while the pan was happening. The other is that Clipping for the cars was not active. Because of this one car could become a Thousand. It also helped with the physics not having to worry about running into each other.

How many movies have these cliches? I don't know, but I know how many show up in Movie marathons. I also know how many people actually care.
Lets all sing it together.
