It's just good to see Sony winning at something.

Well, the death of HD-DVD is official now.

Interesting to see Betamax win this time.

So, does that mean we'll be forced to suffer through long load times since blu-ray reads slower, or can it be increased or will the gaming systems of the future still use DVD?

Er, pretty much every gaming system out there has its own disc format, except the PC which you can just slot in higher-speed drives as they become available.

Which is not to say we're not looking forward to longer load times, but it's just not Blu-Ray's fault.  I don't own a third-next-gen system yet but what I've seen they all seem to be designed to give you some time to stretch, do some cardio, maybe go make a sandwich before a stage loads.  At least they haven't snuck in commercials yet.

We've also got games like DMC4 that install about 5 gigs onto your PS3 which (supposedly) do away with load times. I'm not sure how long that procedure is, though.

Long enough to learn Sanskrit, according to a reliable source.

Another reliable source states that it doesn't even alleviate the load time issue all that much.  Said source also mentioned that he'd have been pissed about buying the thing, if he hadn't gone into a pool to pay for the thing.  How big a pool?  Let's just say the number of people required to obtain a PS3 is almost enough to kill Luca Blight.

Smash Brothers Brawl Completely and Totally Spoiled.

Note: Digg that shit. Not for the traffic. For the user comments. Digg users are thick. Rabid Smash Bros. fans are also thick. A single cubic centimeter of the material that comprises a digg user smash bros. fan would weigh more than your whole mom.

Actually, when I heard that Bob was working on a Smash bit for SA (after the initial annoyance that I hadn't thought to ask him to do it first) we went and compared notes to make sure that we weren't working on the exact same thing. There are occasional bonuses to there being a grand total of ten videogame writers in the world.

But I know how much you love pointing out what a plagiarist I am whenever I have the temerity to make a joke about a videogame on the internet. I won't kick you in the bag over it. Mostly because you're way the fuck over there.

You've been beaten to being wantonly paranoid over idle comments too. :sadderpanda:

Honestly I was just warning you that you were inhabiting the same territory as Something Awful.  I try to avoid that whenever possible, but if you push on even after you're aware of it then I guess it's not a problem.

Ziff Davis confirmed for Chapter 11!
Fat lot of good that did. This now leaves PC Gamer as the undisputed king of PC gaming magazines in America.

Thankfully, GFW Radio will still continue.
