From the linked piece:

"Here's the problem right now; the person who is savvy enough to want to have a good PC to upgrade their video card, is a person who is savvy enough to know bit torrent to know all the elements so they can pirate software," explained Bleszinski,
Well, anyone who is savvy enough to upgrade their video card is also savvy enough to know about mod chips and hacked firmware. Granted, that is not everyone who plays on a console - that's what seems to be his point - but what is the implication here: That he makes games for stupid people?

Ah, whatevs. Will it have mouse and keyboard support on the 360? If not, count me out.

P : as a previously die-hard keyboard + mouse FPS player I can say that the XBox controller does take some getting used to at first but after a while its pretty good and intuitive.

And then theres the vibrations.

I won't comment on the last part but as another previous keyboard+mouse user, i must say that the 360 controller truly is an upgrade, to me the dual thumb-sticks, triggers, and freedom make it much more satisfying for FPS/Third Person Shooters, and others (although RTS to me is a mouse+keyboard only, i guess we will see how Halo Wars and EndWar turn out) than spacebar+arrow+R+S+TZ*()+ click click+right click. But to each his own.

Not sure about GoW, but I know that the Halo series at least has had the target zones enlarged so it's easier to hit with a stick - if you're really aiming just next to someone's head, you score a hit. That makes it all about reactions, which to me is just even more boring.

If the stick was harder to aim with than a keyboard then that doesn't just make it about reactions.

I know me and my buddy Cheezy will be getting it the day it comes out and co-op'ing like, all day.

If DakyMcDak Dak decides to get it we can blaze through the campaign with all 4 of us.

I'm guessing Stogie has no interest since I haven't seen him in this thread yet.

I'll be a game time decision. Unless you guys show me how awesome Gears 1 is *hint hint*

But so far all Gears has done is drive me to play Halo.

Every time I think I'm gaining respect on these forums I decide to make a fool out of myself yet again...

I took a few blows to the head today (cramped basement) at work so I'll go ahead and blame it on that.

Right on! Hey that reminds me, we never did beat that damn Cortana level with meta data turned on.

I was going to respond to sek's drunk post but Bogues beat me to it.

Among other things. You still need earlier meta achievements and I need to beat the early levels on Legendary (sek?).

I suppose we can try to rekindle our Friday night romances...

I have yet to beat any of the game on Legendary, I'm down.

Plus, we need to complete the Vidmaster Challenge.

Edit: It seems we have two thread topics merging into one Super Massive Black Thread.

I'm certainly up for trying.

By the way sek, all this doesn't count towards being your greatest thread ever, as it belongs in my thread.

I just got back from my lunch break. Picked up GoW for $40 at Target. Meetup next week? It will give me some time to learn the controls.
