I actually have that edition... i didn't even see it... I will read the full article. It does seem very interesting. Every question that the reporter asks the authors, the authors have answers that are very well thought. They really do know their stuff.
I'm glad large news sources are covering more in-depth stories on videogames other than idiotic "GOL-LY, can you believe videogames sell this well?" reality-check news blurbs whenever the next big thing hits. But I'm getting a little tired of people who seem like they're informed on videogames as a whole and only talk about the online scene. For every socially diminished MMORPG player they talk about, aren't there about two people who bought an Xbox just to play Madden with their friends? There's a much larger picture out there and they're focusing on a portion of it, alone. Anarchy Online is mentioned several times. Do people still even play that?

M$ says videogames are cool, so go out and buy some xboxes.
