I love CAG and CheapyD... but guys, c'mon.

The 360 podcast is great. It's the only other one I listen to on a consistent basis. Quit being so mad that they talked about Cheapy and calm the hell down.

it could be great if they all act their age and become more professional. IGN is an established presence in this industry so they should be careful in bashing other people. they are being immature. they need to listen to that cagcast again and humiliate themselves.

hilary said "who's cheapy d?"

its funny that you mention this. but the last i recall, people look are other peoples game review. but they dont look at their names or even gives a shit on whos reviewing what. so whos hilary again?

Their smart-mouth attitude is definately one of the reasons for their comments being more offensive. They show almost no respect for CAG and other sites. This is because they think so highly of themselves on their fake radio show with no quality whatsoever. They call themselves "professionals" yet they act completely childish, even compared to other IGN podcasts, such as Wii-k in review.

DVD players and discs were selling like hotcakes when they came out, people were eager to move on from VHS. That isn't happening today, and those numbers support that conclusion.

The first year DVDs and DVD players were available in the US, 1997, they sold 2 million discs. The next year, they sold 7.2 million discs. By the time the PS2 had come out in 2000, 8.5 million DVD players had already been sold, most of them costing more than a grand a piece. This is what I call a "driving force" that propelled PS2 (which cost less than standalone DVD players at the time). Blu-Ray is simply not catching on at anywhere near the same rate that DVD did.

So yes, drop in the bucket. Its clearly not doing for the PS3 anything like what DVD did for the PS2. If anything, its PS3 thats helping the Blu-Ray format, which doesn't say much for how they're doing.

It didn't help that they had to fight a battle at retail with HD-DVD, whereas DVD had no competitor, unless you count Laserdisc, which no one ever does. HDTV adoption rates in the US are lagging and HD movie buyers are a subset of HDTV owners. Subscription movie services, legal and illegal movie downloads and copies are all taking a bite out of the pie from Blu-Ray. There's no way that Blu-Ray will ever come close to the success that DVD was. I can't think of any consumer electronics technology that has caught on and grown as fast.

Wow, an inter-feud. Boring, who cares. I don't go to IGN anymore since they were bought out by Fox/Rupert Murdoch. They've turned into crap for a long time. I urge anyone with common sense to boycott everything Fox/Mudorch related

They were bought by News Corporation of which Murdoch is the chairman and CEO. Fox, 20th Century Fox and it's relations are also owned by NWS, but Fox does not own IGN, just as it doesn't own Barrons, Harper Collins, TV Guide or other NWS holdings.

But have fun, boycott if it makes you feel good.

This just in... CAGs have no sense of humor and are more sensative than a bunch of 13 year old girls on their first period.

I mean really people. As one poster said, it was clearly tongue in cheek. (And actually even if it was unintentional, it is a funny comment on the last couple of Cagcasts where some posters accused Cheapy of the same thing).

Also, Didn't Cheapy do the same a while back by comparing alexa results with some podcast that called him out? I like the CAGcast, I like the IGN podcasts but let's face it, neither have a monoply on maturity or are above name-calling.

Just listened to the clip and I'd have to agree that the guy was just joking around. Seems like his schtick is being upset at stuff and it was clearly only read to get him to respond in this way.

Yep, it's just Hilary being Hilary. He's a jerk, but in a light-hearted way.

All true. I'm not criticizing Blu-Ray as much as I'm trying to point out that DVD was a sales phenomenon that we might not see again.

Even if it is tongue and cheek, I never liked hilary, and never will. and agree with Cheapy, while Blu-ray is a selling point of the PS3, it's nothing more than a feature. What will drive the sale of the PS3 will be it's exclusives, such as MGS 4 and Little Big Planet. Exclusives are always the system selling points of a system, always will be.

I thought this was just like when CheapyD and Wombat were joking about the PA guys eating each other's shit. It was just a joke - they also made a 1up joke about James Milke, new EIC of 1up "Video Games".

Besides, they call their podcast Three Red Lights and use a bell they call Jeff Bell, so really...

Geez, someone makes one off-the-cuff comment about Cheapy and the whole site goes up in arms.

Fact: Hilary Goldstein is a dick. Anyone who listens to the IGN podcasts on a regular basis knows this. It's how he copes with having a girl's name. However, part of his whole character is making a lot of sarcastic, tongue-in-cheek comments just to get listeners riled up. Sadly, 95% of everyone here seems to have taken the bait. Hilary's probably laughing his ass off at how many of you he got to download and listen to the Three Red Lights podcast.

I'm as anxious to hear Cheapy's response as the next guy, but some of you take the internetz way too seriously.

99.9% of all podcasts suck.

IGN as a website sucks and the IGN insider pay for free information sucks to.
Do not support IGN. I will not waste my time listening to a stupid IGN podcast.
Maybe IGNs podcast needs more hits and are trying to get cags to come and help them out?

I will wait until the next Cagcast is uploaded to hear about it.



Cagcast = Awesome.

Lighten up guys. As his fellow IGN editors stated themselves, that is Hillary being Hillary. The "To Catch An Editor" Podcast stated directly that riling up people and being an ass is perhaps how Hillary makes up for his name. That's people that work with him day in, day out.

Ass or not, can anyone clear up whether or not he invited Cheapy onto the IGN podcast?

Yes, he did. Initially, he stated he'd come on the CAGcast and then added he'd contact Cheapy or Cheapy could contact them and they'd be happy to have him on.

I finally listened to it. This was clearly Hillary being Hillary. Stand down CAGs. Not that big of a deal. He's an editor who knows how to troll and piss people off. I rather enjoy his personality on the podcasts.

Immature? I don't recall IGN having a ten minute segment about how they almost shit their pants once. Though I'm not saying that's a bad thing. Both shows are immature, and it's awesome. I'd clip the actual part where they mentioned CAG, but I'm about to fall asleep as I type this. When they "called out" Cheapy D they weren't serious. Learn to take some jokes, sirs.

Oh, and Cheapy needs to take them up on their offer. That'd be great.

Up until this was posted, I had no idea who Hilary was or that IGN even had a 360 podcast.


Gotta agree with Cheapy on the latest episode as well, must have been a bitch growing up with a girl's name.

Ah man, where to begin. I wonder how many of the people who complained about IGN not bothering to listen to Cheapy bothered to listen to an episode of Three Red Lights? Listen to just one and you'll see that Hilary was just joking around to be an ass. They don't take themselves seriously and never have. As someone else pointed out at the end of each show they apologise to there listeners for making another terrible podcast. All the people jumping up and down about this need to relax, don't take them seriously because they don't even take themselves seriously. Even the PA rant done by Hilary (as Rob the Robot) was just him being a douche to be funny, so chill.

And the guy who said "Who's CheapyD?" wasn't Hilary, it was Nate Ahearn, the most annoying guy on any podcast anywhere.
