CheapyD Edit:
Here's the clip:

http://xbox360.ign.c...2/852084p1.html

They backfired at CAG.

Cheapy basically stated a well thought out idea about Blu-Ray on CAGcast 106 that was not offensive in any way. Cheapy even commented IGN's good points. IGN of course insisted on not even listening to the CAGcast and then attacked CAG.

It's about 56 minutes into the show, near the end. I don't mind if you want to share the thread in the CAGcast. It's not private or anything.

I don't want to listen to the whole thing. What did they say and what did Cheapy say to make them respond?

are you refering to cheapy saying that blu ray wasn't going to be the driving force that hillary claimed it would be in this gen console race. If that is the case why the Fuck would IGN even care. There were others on the podcast that didnt seem to think that blu ray would be such a big deal.

What was IGN's response. Please don't tell me that used the we are superior then other people in the industry bullshit they used on penny arcade. When they pointed out they were professional journalist and penny arcade was a comic.

What happened is Hillary on IGN said some stuff about the 360's demise and Cheapy said those reasons are silly and nonfactual. Hilary then calls Cheapy a fanboy and says Cheapy's comments are ludicrious and without factual basis and then invites Cheapy to be on their show to talk about it because he doesn't care about the cagcast and doesn't want to be on it.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

They kind of acted like that. Kind of acted like CAG was nothing compared to them.

Is Hillary a girl, or a boy with a girls name? If the later is true, just leave him alone, since he is obviously a victim of an abusive childhood.

I'm way to lazy to listen to both Pod Casts but did they imply that Cheapy is 360 fanboy? Didn't they watch this?



And if IGN doesn't like the site then fine. They can pay 60 bucks for games for the rest of time. See if I care. If anything they should be mad at people saying IGN Insider is a rip off.

But... Blu-ray isn't a driving force the way DVD was for the PS2. Most people are still satisfied with DVD.

4 million Blu-Ray discs were sold last year. 1.7 billion DVD's were sold last year. Driving force? More like drop in the bucket.

Ugh... Those dudes were lame! I don't listen to that many podcasts but I've heard enough to know those guys don't belong anywhere near a public address. Sounded like a circle-jerk. Yikes!

No, thats what the person who submitted the question wrote. I believe the word I used was "disagreed".

Anyway, more fodder for this week's show...I love it!

Yeah I remember the cagcast played that clip. They got their panties in a bunch. Really, it's video games people. There's no need to prove who has the bigger gaming dick. Blu Ray alone is not going to crush the competition. There needs to be actual games along with it.

Helps that there were millions more DVD players than Blu Ray players. Back in 2000, you think anyone said "There were 1.7 Billion VHS tapes sold this year, and only 4 million of these Digital Video Disc things! Drop in the bucket!"

That has to have been the most pathetic response I have ever heard. What a self-absorbed douche. Cheapy shouldn't even waste his time responding to this guy.

They're just some assholes trying to start shit to raise the listener stats on their show. I fully expect something like this out of IGN every month of so, just so people keep coming back to see what everyone's pissed off about.
