Safe new year.

One reason why I stayed in bed that night. The other reason I had to be at work at 6 this morning. Good thing I don't live in that city (which is a few hours away).

BTW It's been over one year since Shingo the One has posted. M.I.A.? R.I.P.?

Phonetic Japanese is the only Japanese I will accept!

We are well into the 21st century and I still don't have a flying car or a genetically reborn dinosaur for a house pet. Even though the future has been a bust so far I hope everyone has a happy new year.

I still just want to hear Optimus speak. I don't care if it doesn't strictly adhere to the original figures or the show--it's just cool enough to have a live action Transformers movie (IMHO).

NBC wants to remake the Bionic Woman TV show according to CNN. I wonder how they'll top Major Kusanagi or the T-X.

Happy new year!

They did not. I was only making things concise. The whole paragraph explained that G.Rev (I would assume written "G-Rev"), developers of shooting games and occasional partners in crime with Treasure, announced the game on their page. It was all a bad understanding and a too quick overlook from one of the websites or forums mentioning "RS3 is mentioned on G-Rev!". I remember the same happened once on GAF when some guy misread an IC news about a new Konami service.

Updates on Shijou Saikyou no Deshi: Kenichi from Game Watch. The info has also made it over to the Magic Box. I don't know how the game is going to turn out but I do like little details such as having the characters take off their shoes when they are inside. Also, I don't know who this guy is but he is awesome.

I don't know, the only disappointing thing for me was that I couldn't go through all the circles on day 3 because I bought too much stuff and it got too heavy to move around with.

And that I couldn't get the leaf booth. fffffffff

That's actually a "friend" of Kenichi's that goes around gathering data on people and measuring their fighting ability, popularity, looks, etc and usually tormenting Kenichi as well. I'm still trying to figure out if he's even human, though.

I'm actually kind of looking forward to the game, though, because the show so far is at least interesting in a pointless guilty pleasure sort of way. I'm also hoping that the 3 extra slots on the player screen either aren't all that can be opened beyond Kenichi, Miu and the 8 members of Ragnarok that are present, or that those 3 slots will be taken by one of two of the masters.

If Apachai and Shigure were in the game as playable characters the game would win right there.

That "deal" is a load of shit, IMO. You'd probably get almost as much from a normal trade-in, not to mention the aftermarket value of all of that on ebay is probably more than $100.

I wouldn't say "load of shit". I mean, a NEW PS2 is like...$125 and I imagine a lot of the systems coming in for trade are worth much less than that.

Factoring in the trouble of putting it on eBay and shipping it vs the limited amount of extra money you MAY get for your efforts, I think it's a good deal. Especially considering that the PS3 can theoretically replace your PS2.

Or rather, it WOULD be a good deal if the PS3 was worth having right now. It's funny, but from what I've seen, there's a surplus of them everywhere now. Several of the EBs around me have "taken too many returns and trade-ins on them and can't take any more." They're probably doing this to move more units, not "rip you off".

I think it's impressive that Sony was able to sell so many systems when the price is so high and there are so few games, but it doesn't surprise me that the people willing to fork out the dough are dwindling.

(or maybe they're just saving their money...?)

Judging by what you said, it's not just less people willing to fork out the dough but also people RETURNING the PS3's to get their dough back.

I heard that stores in Japan won't even take them back anymore. A friend of mine was trying to return it back to the store, unopened and with receipt even, and they turned him away.

What drives a person to buy a console only to try and sell it back once they realize that the reality of the system isn't as good as the hype? Do they have so much extra free time and money that they can do this sort of thing just to be doing it? I both envy and pity them. Or were a majority of the initial buyers actually speculators who were hoping to make a killing on eBay?

Well, this happened to a friend of a friend of mine. He waited over 2 days in line, got the system, tried to sell it on Ebay, then the buyer flaked out. By that time PS3s weren't going for any more than they were worth, so he just returned it to the store, having thrown away $40 in Ebay fees and 2 days of his life.

I'm sure in many instances something like that happened, or people were just "PS3 YEEEE! I can't believe I found one!" only to later have the reality of the situation sink in.

Of course, I'm making fun of the system a lot, and that may change in the future, when and if they pull things together, but right now, it's a total joke....excluding maybe Tekken 5, which is surprisingly cheap, low in size and easily accessible. Despite all the Sony failures, I think Namco took a big step forward in showing people what could be done with downloadable games.

I'm kinda of hoping this kills Ebay speculators off, we don't need them hanging around console launches like parasites.

Anyway, the really funny thing is the PS3 launch seems exactly like the PS2 launch, in terms of games and content. It's just with the other systems being more viable the flaws are alot more visable. No more of this "Hey I got a PS2 it'll rock" and ignoring the Dreamcast. It's more of "So...where are the games exactly?" and "Well, i can get this or I can get a 360 or Wii and some really good games".

I'm sure Sony will solve the game problem, but it does show the great flaws in the release schedule. And it could of been simply solved if they just had one A list title on the launch pad.

On the flip side, Yes, Tekken 5 does seem like a good move on Sony and Namco's part. A very visable, and distinct way to show a difference between the 360 live arcade and the Sony one. And I'm hoping we see it used in other ways...Like say SFA3 High Res with online play and the PSP characters. I'd pay $20 for that...

It'd be nice but I wouldn't anticipate it happening. While the PS3 resale market apparently isn't as viable as originally thought main stream media coverage of the launch pretty much solidified the idea that one can resell a launch console for several times it's purchase value.

Five years from now most people won't remember any difficulties scalpers had moving their systems (if they ever knew about such problems to begin with) - they'll only remember news stories about big profits. By the time the PS4, Xbox720, and Wiihash come out we all should expect another round of Ebay gouging.
