Nintendo looks to bend over existing DSi owners with a 4-inch version, to be sold in Japan at the same price for “old people.” It’s “just a rumor.” Right. The arrogant Yamauchi 1990s era rears its ugly head again…? Update: Everyone just remain calm. This is just for weak-eyed old people. Nothing to see here (and yet the hardcore bitch and moan. Oy)
The big irony with the now infamous Infinity Ward “waaagghh dedicated servers suck” petition is that many of the people signing the petition today should be really signing one that bans people like them from becoming server admins.
Over the past 24 hours I’ve gone from not believing the story was true, to worrying about little flying Balloon Boy Falcon, to secretly hoping he really was in the balloon and could therefore fall, to being relieved he was never really in the thing to begin with. Now it looks like a big fat hoax, and I’m back to wishing he had actually gone up in the thing. He would have been much more useful to humanity as a mogul or small stain on a mountainside.
Well of course it’s going to come out, in that there will be a physical product sitting somewhere for someone to buy, but it won’t be something anyone can afford or play. It will be the first vaporware product that actually has a physical form, if that makes any sense. It’s a marketing ploy meant to dissuade those 150 million potential console buys that Nintendo talks about these days from buying a Wii. Epic fail.
“There’s no possible way women would have voluntary sex with David Letterman, especially if he’s their boss, so he must be fired. Also, old men who bed young women should be fired. Lastly, how dare Letterman come out and just ADMIT everything before we had a chance to go on FOX News as a talking head and speculate and analyze the affairs. HOW DARE HE!”
Shorter me: People fuck. It feels good. Get used to it.
