Games The rumour mill for the next generation of video game consoles has been churning out some juicy stuff these past few months. While Nintendo has laid most of its cards out on the table, Microsoft and Sony have remained tight-lipped, probably because their consoles are still seeing increased sales. So, we have to rely on rumours, and those rumours have one thing in common: Microsoft and Sony want to eliminate the used games market.

It's interesting, isn't it, that all three started as free, player developed mods? It's almost as if players actually design games that are, you know, fun to play! :-)


Exactly! This is the essence of the back-room/bedroom game maker. They're not sitting there labouring over ways to squeeze more cash out of you (or selling you iteration n+10 of the same tired formula.)

A good game can stand the test of time, even if the sound and graphics begin to feel dated. That why so many people love emulators these days too!
