WHAT?!?

Ugh, Microsoft are utter dicks.

So despite that they get (soon to be) £6 a month from every single online gamer they force companies to pay to provide gamers with updates?!

Hahahhaa! Ridiculous!

Still doesn't explain why Xbox Live seems to be more stable than psn.... but yeah, I hate m$.

First bashing the PS3. Now bashing the 360. If he is bashing Microsoft then why is he releasing Portal 2 on 360? Makes no sense.

Pretty how Gabe Newell then turned around went PS3 and called it the definitive version to play Portal 2. And with the possibilities of steam cloud you might be able to play you steam games on the PS3. Microsoft being a whore with their DLC rules is basically a trap to get gamers into paying for it. You could name any sort of DLC that would give you achievements whether it be normal or an extra 250. How do they make DLC that won't interfere with Microsoft's rules? The answer? YOU CAN'T. And that's why Gabe is pissed and so are alot of other developers.

But to be honest I have hopes for the cell processor. That thing is fucking amazing! The problem isn't the coding, but the fact that no one wants to program in openCL (not to be confused with openGL) when they could do it in directX. Something they're familiar with and runs on both the PC & 360. I'm willing to bet switching to openCL is why the Wii hasn't gotten much 3rd party development this generation either, especially considering the potential for massive profit of all those consoles. I'll explain multi-core processing another day and why the cell could change computing forever if IBM continues to invest in it like they have.

He's not bashing the 360. He's bashing Xbox LIVE.

I use Hotmail too. I have too many emails coming in to switch it.

Why can't Gabe be nice to every console? There's enough of him to go around, and then some.

I still, even to this day, don't understand the hype surrounding the Cell. All the Cell does is offload GPU tasks from the RSX, it doesn't RAISE it's performance but is rather used as a crutch to make up for the RSX's inefficiencies with memory and shader pipelines.

Everyone screams UC2 when the fact is it's a very linear game with uninspired AI. Just some good lighting effects and post-processing on top of average looking textures and polygons.
