So someone's been doing some research: Awhile back, Bobby Kotick said he wanted to charge people a fee to play Call of Duty, and would do it if he could. Later, he said that Activision doesn't get any of Microsoft's XBLA fees even though 60% of the users play CoD.

Microsoft announced the price for fees would go up, effective about a week before Black Ops. Now Kotick is saying Activision gets a "modest portion" of XBLA fees and Activision is suddenly saying they'll never charge CoD fees.

It's been theorized that there's a correlation between Activision, Black Ops, and the price hike. It also confirms that even if you don't play CoD, you're still giving money to Activision if you're paying the higher XBLA fees. Not that "Activision likes money" is fucking news, but still..

I don't own that console because I like machines that don't break, but I'd be pretty pissed if I did. I swear, Kotick needs to be lynched.

yeah i don't rly see a need to turn on my 360 ever again now that i have a ps3

mostly because i like menus that aren't designed by retards, not having to pay twice to use the internet, and being able to hear my TV over the system fans

it's kinda a shame that the C#/XNA suite only integrates with 360

The PS3 has great games. That ain't the issue, methinks.

Also when you said C#/XNA, I couldn't think of anything else that made sense other than Cena.

No kidding. Last year around this time I bought a brand fucking new 360. Its already having problems with the DVD drive. If this one craps out Im not buying another one. In fact I will never buy another Microsoft gaming system again. I would even get rid of windows if Linux would actually run anything.

I bought the newest Arcades from the last Xbox 360 and, if a game's being played from the hard drive, it's completely silent. I install every game because I don't want my DVD drive to fuck up. That's what went wrong on my first 360.

Because I forgot which thread has people talking about their hours playing videogames. Y'all a bunch of newbs. I've maxed out the 99:99:99 game clock on at least FF VII through FFIX MULTIPLE times. FFX was around 150 - 160 hours.

It feels like I've been playing Civ V for years. Does that count?

I tell myself that it's the last turn and I need to go to bed and get some sleep before I go to work... and then my alarm goes off telling me to get up and go to work. I haven't had much sleep these past months.

In other news, I don't think I'll buy any new Microsoft console, but then again I wont buy a new Sony one. Nintendo is a maybe. I'd rather save the thousands of dollars I waste on consoles for something I might use more often.

I'm start to lose interest in video games. I'm not sure if its because I'm older now, or that my job is making me too tired to put in the effort to play them, but I just don't play as much as I used to. I wish I had more free time, or better control over my cash to stop buying every new, high profile game that comes out.

I got tired of video games when I got into high school. I bought lots of movies instead. You'll probably come back to it.

I stopped playing video games actively from 2005 to about 2009. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 was my downfall.

That happened to me awhile ago. I still play hand held games (PSP DS) because I can do that while I am doing other stuff. If I have time at home I play mostly older system games (revisiting Shining Force 2)
