The two hot topics of this already busy week were the PS3 having time management issues, and Infinity Ward just having regular management issues. Team Feedback discusses both.

    Why the hell do we get the same games every year Left 4 Dead then Left 4 Dead 2, Call of Duty of some sort, Halo of some sort, I know it's cause of money yet in the long run people will just get tired of the same games coming out year after year. Games take time to perfect and 12 months of development time isn't enough time imo. Look at games that take their time in dev like Final Fantasy, God of War, Heavy Rain, Ghost Recon, Bioware games, Alpha Protocol, Splinter Cell, and many more games that are great or will be great. It makes me sick that everyone said like less than a year ago well Xbox 360 has so many more games than the PS3. The games Xbox did have were on the PC, and the few games that were available for the Xbox were crap besides Halo, Gears, Fable, and Crackdown. 4 games that I have play and enjoyed some more than others like Halo 3. Still the campaign was to short in Halo 3 and well GRAW 2 has a better multiplayer experience imo. What the Xbox 360 has games wise is BS I purchased an Xbox 360 because of games like Bioshock, Lost Planet, Halo, Crackdown, Dead Rising and more. Now the PS3 has a better Bioshock, and Lost Planet WTF! Also my Xbox 360 has red-ringed on me twice since I bought it in Fall 2007, once just 1 year and two days after I bought it, and then again just two months ago and average a once every year and a half. My purchase decision was based around wanting to play Bioshock and not thinking that the PS3 was going to get a better version less than a year later! Believe me I would have purchased a PS3 if I had known about this. Now the GTA IV DLC is coming to both PC and PS3 in 2010 so I mean I'm pretty pissed right now. Most of the games that were once exclusive to the 360 are now available on the PS3, which might be a good thing cause when I eventually decide I'm through with the 360 I'll have peace of mind knowing that I have most of the games the 360 has anyways and the games that I don't have most can be played on the PC with a PS3 controller yay!

    I am a huge fan of feedback i have yet to watch a bad show and look forward 2 it every week.As far as the ps3 glich goes i own a 360 and i dont see why the ps3 thing was a big deal. It does bring up fears about how safe ur content is and makes us reconsider online only content distribution but it's not the end of the world and it's over now.I hope this infinity ward and activision thing resolves itself soon and i hope activision does not ruin one of the greatest dev teams in the biz.-can't wait to watch next week i also think this show deserves it's own G4 time slot.

    PS3 - Timing issue. PS3 Release date was November 17th 2006 after that years fixtich leap date. Next leap year is 2008 went off with no problem. The issue shows up two years later for 2010, which we lived through. Next real leap year is 2012, so the next time this may occur is 2014. The system maybe in the landfill then but wouldn't put it past them if they don't fix the firm ware. The reason why games didn't work is because of the mismatch between the firmware date and the save dates or install dates of the game. I bet if you loaded a new game it would have worked. The other thing that Trophies or game saves made on Feb 29th 2010 will not show up once the system syncronizes back up with the internet time. So Sony's original advice of not using the computer for a day was the best because the system skiped syncing it's internal clock with the external clock on the internet.

    I do agree that it is rare to have such a virtual "Heavy Rain" of gaming news to have come out in a span of a few days that has even my small group of gaming friends coming up with theories. I cannot blame the gaming media to latch onto it like a hungry dog on a T-bone steak and "blowing things out of proportion." Nevertheless it is fascinating to watch corporate drama unfold in IW and the "weakness" of our supposed over-reliance on internet connectivity with the PS3.

    Its a video game and they are not mocking your god. You can not be so close minded to such things. In the bible it says, "Thou shalt not kill" but you dont pay any attention to that because you are not so stupid that you dont know that its just a game. You arent really killing anyone. But add a digital Jesus statue and you become defensive. The concept remains the same. Its just a game, dude.

    The intersting thing that I heard from your discussion was "the potential of an atom bomb like scenario". key word potential. do we afix ourselves these days to things that may happen? let us look at this 24 hour falldown, yes it could have been worse. But must we posit the end game? potentiality, funny word that one(spelling may be incorrect throughout). have we not had blackouts from basic electricity for more than 24 hrs? dare I mention AIG? to much press after the fact trying to "gauge the downfal of sony". I appreciate you views, but hey, 24hrs does not make a nightmare. Keep up the good work love the show, wish I still had cable. too much for a person in school. will be online to see all. Love the soapbox.
    sincerly me

    I am 100% with you guys on the metroid: other M subject.

    I watched the trailer and was amazed at how foreign it was too me.

    The last thing I want to see is one of my most beloved franchises butchered so until then all my fingers and toes will be crossed!

    I hadn't watched the trailer yet until I heard Andrews comment about how a minute destroyed 25 years and....he's totally right. That wasn't a Metroid trailer, that was....I dont even know. Oh man, I pray that this game is good. They should show trailer like the one at E3 last year. You know, a trailer with action, considering Metroid is an action game. Thats just my logic.

    It only does
    self resurrection
    it s the Jesus console.
    By the way, this whole ps3 glitch is being blown way out of proportion. I know it s a bit alarming not being able to play your games, but it was all over in less than a day

    The PS 3 situation is sad b/c it is such a beauty of a console and powerful but the good ol' 360 is killing them online.
    as for the Infinity Ward/ Activision drama I suggest that the fat cats at Activision shut the eff up throw money at IW and let them create more wonderful Modern Warfare games or new titles that will be just as great.

    Dear God ... will the guy who handles the camera that focuses on the panel PLEASE keep his finger OFF THE ZOOM BUTTON!? No, seriously! Seriously! Pick a zoom level, frame your target(s) appropriately, and LEAVE THE ZOOM LEVEL THERE for the duration of your focus on the person! You DON'T need to micro-adjust the zoom every .75 seconds!

    As to the PS3 issue, I'm curious as to how Sony claims that the Playstation 3 was "fixed" when the issue was a problem with the hardware clock. Wouldn't that require a firmware update? How does waiting somehow miraculously "fix" a problem? Seems to me that it would be more accurate to say that Sony waited for the problem to go away. That's not a "fix".

    I think think that the concerns regarding the loss of a physical media and the integration of each platform into a "gaming network" are completely valid, particularly when considered coupled. The industry will surely continue to move in this direction so these issues are going to need to be addressed. This will likely require a paradigm shift for the way gaming business is done as a whole.

    Let consoles learn from PC's on digital downloads.
    The PC's been doing digital downloads for a long time, & almost every type of media you download can operate completely independent of the internet.
    Plus when you purchase it, you own it for life, & can come back & re-download if needed anytime; plus you can authorize, (usually), up to 3 PC's to host the content. The big exception is apple, if you don't back it up, & you lose it, you have to convince them, what files you didn't backup, to get it back.

    I have the highest confidence in my PC digital buys. Majority of PC software I buy is digital, from antivirus/tools, to music, to video games, & even TV shows/movies.

    If consoles adopted a model like Direct2Drive or amazon, I would welcome fully-digital, but I would still want to download to a hard-drive at least for accessibility off the internet.

    I think they also brought up a great point with onLive. I probably won't use it, at least not anytime soon, since I'm a physical copy proponent, but at least in the case of something that is entirely online based, it would be understandable if the online wasn't available for a period. What had people scared/confused was the idea that an online component could interact with something offline, and it would just mess it up entirely. It's very unnerving to know that even things that were supposed to not require a connection actually do, even if it doesn't appear that way. Like with AC2 on the PC, that is a single player game, and yet it always needs an internet connection. Something that was bought and paid for and is entirely single player, not only needs the internet to start, but needs it to keep going. I can see the idea behind activation, but once is enough. If I have a legit copy when I first put it in, it's still legit every time I play, right?
