I've noticed that it's only Shipwreck and Mrs. Shipwreck that have their real names mentioned almost every episode now.
Shipwreck has his own Game Room now? Does it get better support than Microsoft's Game Room?
Cheapy, you should definitely do the most pre-ordered/sold amazon games lists every month or so and maybe even have contests associated with predicting the top items on the list. I found the thread you were talking about and your chart sucks. It just has games listed along the bottom and a mysterious line that's probably how many people ordered those games, but you offer no numbers to get any idea whether number sold five copies or 500 copies. Also, that thread was completely insane, so it might be better to keep it in the blogs so they will have to work harder to find them.
If you were referring to DPsx7, he's not a Sony fanboy. He's a delusional, Sony-hating PS3 fanboy that hates the PS3's gimmicks (like HD and needing to update to access PSN) and probably should've been banned in that thread since he trolls a lot in that way on the forums. You can read his post history to get an idea of what I'm talking about.
You should really play MLB 10 instead, Shipwreck. Road to the Show is much more polished and addictive version of My Player. Becoming the starter as a rookie for a pro team in 20 games is insane, even for the Reds. I got to the Pros in MLB 10 in my first season by July as the result of lucky injuries and trades that let me get called up earlier than I was ready for it, which is why I'm back in AAA for my second season when the GM had the chance to re-evaluate the depth charts.
Wombat's really on the ball with the news of the pricing of the PSP bundles compared to the PSP Go, which they've done since the Go's launch with a Gran Turismo bundle that was cheaper than the Go. They really need to drop the price of the PSP and the Go, as it's been three years since we've seen a price drop on the normal PSP and it's not doing too well in North America at $169.99.
I know it's easy to just say Sony should've done the PSP Go at launch about six years ago, but the PSP then was nowhere close to the versatile PSP as it is now. Just getting digital games onto the PSP was a hassle as a user when they were available two years after it launched and before they put the PS Store on the PSP two years ago. There was no iPhone, no Xbox 360, and Nintendo wasn't the dominant powerhouse then, so the entire ecosystem wasn't pushing for a digital download system then. The major issues for the PSP at the time was pricing of the software that still hurts it and the bad choice of using disc-based media for games that had a negative effect on loading times and ironically handcuff the PSP Go when people weren't willing to give up the UMDs they hated in the first place.
If the iPhone was the only portable gaming option right now, I probably would've given up on portable gaming all together as a result. There are good iPhone games, but they're good because I didn't pay more than $2.99 for any of them since none of them are worth more than that. I'm much more likely to turn on the PSP or DS when I'm interested in playing a portable game due to the more substantial, engrossing games.
Will the CAG iPhone app be out before Gran Turismo 5?
Shitty show this week.
