Wreck-it Ralph is same old same old?Tangled is a princess fairy tale but fun and different than previous ones.The only feature animations that were a sequel to a prior feature or part of a franchise that I can think of is pooh and rescuers out of 50+ features.All the sequels I can recall are direct to video.If you want to claim that Disney starts a new franchise every couple years that's sorta true although there have been some duds along the way.Hell, Pixar had done more...
If smelly basement dwelling hard core gamers are in the minority who are buying sufficient games to make some of the console titles blockbusters?The stereotype is stupid. I do not know a single kid in any of my three kids' peer groups that do not own a console. My kids are the oddballs since they don't have a 360.These same kids have iPads and iPod touches...or at least access to mom and dad's iOS devices. There is huge overlap in the demographics and anyone that...
It's funny but we have a MS store in our mall and the thing that draws a crowd are teens playing dance central in the hallway.Given that these players are very often girls (and cute ones) and they are good at the game tells me that the person that is ignorant about the state of gaming is you.Ms won't be out of the gaming industry in 4 years unless they totally f-up their next console. Plus you seem to fail to realize that the current consoles are near the end of their...
You mean other than the relative scarcity of aTVs and the lag?Without dedicated game controllers I agree. It would suck.An official SDK for a kinect like system and traditional controllers would be required for success along with solid apple hardware.Multiplayer on a common screen. Whether a dance game or a party game or a board game a large shared screen is better.A lag free large screen shooter is more immersive than a handheld experience.Your dumb assed assertion is...
  When you quote me in a response who is it directed at?  Folk not in this thread who won't be reading this?   LOL.   If you're a wedding videographer or something similar then blu-ray is useful as an internal drive on a mac pro.  IMHO the low and and mid-grade pro's benefit more from the expansion capability than the high end pros that have access to large disk arrays and CPU/GPU farms.   Same for folks using mac pros for science computing but I haven't seen many folks...
  That would be an amazing comeback if I didn't write just that in the next line.  No, not even then.   I can see the appeal of having fewer cables and external drives after connecting an external raid to my mini.  I'll probably just take the speed hit and move to a NAS when I move to an 802.11ac network.  However you typically want your burner near your computer and not tucked away somewhere.     Buy a freaking clue and be done with being a jerk when someone else has an...
  You wrote:   "Most families aren't going to buy a Playstation 4 AND an iPad."   I'm just teasing...but honestly with or without a controller if I HAD to choose between the two this Christmas it'll be an iPad Mini Retina and not a PS4.
  Future forward for pro's who's business requirements differ from that of consumers.     That said a 3rd party BR burner isn't that hard to buy and install but there are folks who just like to buy it from the factory.     /shrug     I don't care either way.  I use standalone Blu-Ray players and enjoy the better image quality than from iTunes.  Every time I buy an iTunes movie I end up regretting it because I could eventually get the same movie for cheaper on Blu-Ray with...
