Microsoft Well, paint me red and call me a girl scout, I totally did not see this one coming at all. This is so utterly surprising it made my brain explode. Hold on to your panties, because this will rock your world. After pressuring several smaller Android vendors into submission (and yes, HTC is still relatively small compared to other players), Microsoft is now moving on to the big one: Redmond is demanding $15 for every Samsung Android device sold. Samsung's choices are simple: pay up, or face another epic lawsuit.

less than 400? A 360 Slim is $200. And added on to the price of that almost $400 computer is the price of the video card...and the one you're going to need next year to replace it in order to play the latest and greatest. Except that THAT one might also require a new power supply to run it. Then you're gonna need a controller. And all this money you're spending doesn't guarantee you're not going to have problems on your particular hardware because they can't possibly test it on every conceivable mixture of parts. Witness:

With the console you never have to worry about that.

There is no way it's easier or cheaper to do PC gaming as opposed to consoles. PC gaming is an extortion racket meant to sell more hardware. The only advantage to PC gaming is mods.
