    Oh gosh, the GBA.
    I had, like, 3 different worm-lights for mine.
    Then everyone got SP`s.
    But I held out for the DS.
    Of which I now own two. -_-`
    Stupid Nintendo releasing multiple versions of hand-helds...

    Oh every produt from apple should be on that list, why do you think they are making new products all the time and overpricing them? Because they would walk over to Microsoft and say,
    "Hey Microsoft....could you build us something to make some money with?"
    "I just made you the Iphone Apple!"
    "Can we have an really thin laptop with no connection cabability and that you could break by carrying around thus restricting it to the home bascly making it a really delicate home computer?"
    "Fine we will call it the Air"
    "Thanks Microsoft!"
    "F uck off Apple"
    -20 MINUTES LATER-
    "Linux! how you been!"
    "Just great man!"
    "You wouldnt believe what Apple just asked for"

    Thats how it works, and with Gates stepping off the throne and out of the palace, looks like Apples is gonna have some trouble!

    Yeah I recently found an old Sega Saturn in my older brothers old closet, and with it there was over ten years of dust, and a sound track CD which I still don`t know what game it goes to. Kinda like a link to the past, and it was used back then, and enjoyed.

    I think the original iPhone shouldn`t really been on the list, it wasn`t so much a flop as you say, it sold like crazy. just because apple has decided to turn around and screw over all those people who bought last year doesn`t make the original product any worse.

    7. Six axis is amazing. I have played the Wii several times and its motion is better but there are several problems that you encounter with JUST motion. Sixaxis was built in perfectly with the buttons on the new DualShock also comes with Sixaxis.
    6. Yeah...
    5. DIVX!!!!
    4. I went Blu-ray
    3. Actually that one has several advantages over the new one. You dont have to get all of AT&T data plans. I know someone who sold their old one for 300. (He`s in a business so the new one makes more sense)
    2. I had my hopes on that one.
    1. I never got it. I went back to 2000. I feel proud

    *Holds up sega CD, 32x, two GBA`s and two GBA sp`s* I enjoyed them while they lasted :(. But meh, everything dies out sooner or later, some just faster then others lol. And I think all of these (except that divx player, that just sounds stupid and the HD-DVD player add-on, OVERPRICED) helped pave the way for newer and better technology to be released without making as many mistakes.

    Sony didn`t "cave-in" and add rumble. They were waiting on a lawsuit. They wanted the rumble to begin with.

    the DivX codec is not from the DIVX players...

    The DivX codec was orginaly named "DivX ;-)" and was a rippoff of a Microsoft MPEG-4 format. it did get its name from DIVX (to mock DIVX).

    Ok there were some mistakes.
    Sony did not replace Sixaxis with Dualshock. They rumble feature was added, so you can still use the motion sensoring. Therefore, Sixaxis is not obsolete.

    They made no mention whatsoever about Blu-Ray being on PS3. They basically said that Blu-Ray is still failing, even though it beat HD-DVD. That is not the case, since every PS3 game is made using Blu-Ray, and every movie now comes out on Blu-Ray.

    And I don`t see how the hand position is bad for Gameboy Advanced. The SP hand placement is way worse IMO.

    i loved GBA, but my screen got shot ): . So i got an SP, but theirs this game i had for GBA where you like swipe cards and voodoo happens and the card is in the game. but i cant play that with GBA, so i perfer it. ive never like PS3`s, the only thing good is the graphics are amazing. i had windows 95, ME, and i have XP, and 95 is the ebst because it had chip`s challenge and all the other games from Microsoft Entertainment Pack 4. Now i really want to play it, but my dad smashed the compy that had it. now im sad ):

    Yeah, I see why people would think the Sixaxis sucks compared to the Wiimote but then, they are for 2 seperate types of motion sensing.

    I have both a Wii and a PS3 so, although it`s obvious the Wiimote is more effective, the Sixaxis is used in a more subtle way like skydiving in Ratchet and Clank.

    Also, is there not a new Sixaxis 3 coming out with rumble built in? :S Hope so

    I am using Windows ME right now. I`ve had it ever since I got this computer, of course, a long time ago. It`s not cool. Obviously, it doesn`t work on things like Powerpoint, Itunes, or anything like that. I need to buy XP, but I really just want a new computer. haha.
