    A Disappointing 7th Generation 

    Wii Logo Half
    Xbox 360 Logo Half PS3 Logo Half

    It’s too early to call an end to the current generation of consoles, but after 3½ years I think it’s safe to give a run down on how things have gone. Wrong, that is. Sure, the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii all came in with a bang but I feel as if we’re hanging on to thin air here.

      oh how i do enjoy these. idk why but they’re fun to read even though i knew most of the information in this one haha.

      if anything though it seems like they shouldnt have rushed the 360 out just to beat the competition out of the gates.

      but whatevs mine still has yet to break down and give me 3 red rings even though it cant read discs for shit anymore.

      oh i left you another comment on the triggerheart excelica page too as doodoo head lool

      Hello… Late reply, I know… 🙂

      The reason we’re facing such a large chuck of crap on today’s console is the exact same reason you mentioned… Developers can do whatever they want with the hardware… With this “ease of use” comes another breed of developers… The one-time only’s… The simple guy who tries to develop a game/utility/whatever, spews out some sh*tty thing, then goes on his way to other “endeavours”…

      We can see the exact same phenomenon in the music industry, IMHO… There’s a lot of total crap in that space that’s either done: 1 – By somebody having access to a synthetizer or a computer and a boatload of samples, 2 – By somebody who’s only goal in this is to make some fast ca$h…

      Fortunately, it’s not the case for everybody.. There are some people that still shine in there… But they’re submerged in a sea of content, that’s it’s sometimes difficult to see them… Dilution of talent, in a way…

    REVIEW: Nintendo DS Browser 

    Nintendo DS Browser LogoIt seems like a perfect fit: The Nintendo DS is small, portable, and Wi-Fi ready. Why didn’t Nintendo include a browser in it? Because the DS was designed as a gaming machine first and foremost. Need proof? This is it.

      That’s disappointing. I know people were excited to have a web browser option on the DS since the PSP comes with one built in. I was not going to purchase it anyways, I use my DS for gaming purposes only. Guess that was the right choice!

      I mostly use the browser for reading books, but I think it’s a great browser. Also, you make it seem as though switching screens is a horrible thing when it’s really not. It’s almost instant. Obviously it’s not as good as a PC or a system that was built with a browser in mind, like the iPhone, but it can’t be really. I think you’re hopes were too high since I got just what I expected. The only real disappointments were the lack of support for the applicatio/xhtml+xml MIME type and the lack of SVG support. I’m making this comment on my DS, by the way. =P

      In reply to Alex, I’ve clarified the article on where I experienced slow down. http://www.phantasystaruniverse.com/index.php takes 0:05 on my PC and 2:13 on the DS. This site’s home page takes 0:04 on my PC and 1:22 on the DS. I have an 8gb/s broadband connection, wtf?

      That’s cool that Alex commented from that product, lol …

      Those times seem way slow. Not even really doable.

      The memory expansion that came with my Nintendo DS Browser was stolen with my DS, rendering the browser cartridge unusable. I found a homebrew application that has a browser included along with a scratch pad, to do list, address book, etc… the homebrew application is called DS Organize. No memory expansion required.

    Microsoft Destroying Live? 

    XBox Live LogoIf you asked me a few months ago which of the next-generation consoles was the best, I would have adamantly said XBox 360, based on two factors: (1) Hardware that keeps the cost down by not trying to be the one-stop-solution to everything, and (2) online experience. Ask me now, and I’d have to say I really don’t know — Microsoft’s hardware still makes more sense, but they seem intent on destroying their own online experience.
