I had ME... it was awful... then XP saved us, and now there's Vista...

Microsoft seems to emulate the pattern of successful movie by M Night Shymalan.

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.

I miss Windows 3.1...

I still have my GBA. I love everything about it EXCEPT that it isn't backlit. It would be perfect if you could see the screen.

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 remember my original Gameboy Colour- After Gameboy, before Gameboy Advance. I'd always play Pokemon Blue right under a freakin' lamp.

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 ):

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.

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).

Sony didn't "cave-in" and add rumble. They were waiting on a lawsuit. They wanted the rumble to begin with.
