Best find ever, and you cannot disagree with those results.

Obviously some one at XFX Marketing is very funny or very lonely.

That's awesome, but I hate to think that anyone would actually buy TWO 8600s ;/
April 18, 2007 6:14:39 PM

I'd like to see the Isles and Devils stay in it though also, to bring some hockey craze back to the area like '94 and '95.

LOL, I like the comment about you, Kaotao and I owning PS3's. Sorry, but no way I'd buy a PS3. That's why I don't go to the Console Gaming Forumz where these things should be discussed. I'll still buy a Wii someday when I happen upon one on the shelf.

It's a sad day for Stars fans. Unless they do the almost impossible, they are done. Turco put in another good game from the highlights that I was able to see, just not enough offense to win the damn game. Sucks to be Turco, working so hard, and getting dinged with the loss. Oh well, it isn't over yet, and maybe they can win in hostile territory since they can't seem to win in Dallas. Stars have good D, just not enough O. Thoughts on this tragic subject hockey fans?

seriously now, you know something is wrong when you have to try and divert us geeks attention with a completely unreal women from a statement like that.

Worked for me...

This is not payback.

This is an education.

Threadjacking is rude, leads to low morale and distrust among forum members.

TheGreatGrapeApe, you are fully aware of the geek god like respect I have for you, kaotao, and the others that hijacked my thread. Unfortunately, having god like respect does not translate into allowing you to run amok and damage the integrity and moral of this forum.

Do not threadjack.

Here's the edjucation.. threadjacking is rude, but so is postingin the wrong forum and then not moving to the correct forum.

Had you posted "Do you think the PS3 will be able to play with similar level of graphices/details/effects as the X360 or PC due to it's RSX limitations", then that would be 100% justifiable graphics card forum fodder. Your post however was more about the porting of the engine and title (as software aspect), which is why it was asked to be moved, nicely even by others. I don't hijack threads unless they are in the wrong spot, meant to induce arguments, flaming out anyways, or not worthy of any other response. While I don't think you meant to induce arguments, your thread met the other 3 aspects, and console threads are not welcome here outside of the technical side as they attract the most ignorant fanbois from both side and they talk about everything BUT the graphics.

Understand why we shot down your thread here after politely asking it to be moved. I admit it may not have been explained in that amount of detail to you, but your persistence in the other thread did result in the reaction you got from those of us who decided to go off-road with it.

In your thread it was you who did that to the forum, seriously. Ask a Mod if you feel that strongly, and get their take on it, I think they'd agree with my take on it, and I bet had we reported it instead of spamming it, it would've been moved to the console section as we suggested you do. Also, in this thread it is once again you running afoul of good governance, not that I care since it makes me grin and suits my BUMP-tion.

Go CANUCKS!!!

You would not believe how important the playoffs are to Canadian fans (and Canadians in general). It pretty much dominates our culture and media for a few months of the year. Its just too bad that it cost 100s of dollars to see a game. I hope that Calgary can comeback to win the series and that Ottawa can finish off Detroit. I would love to see Vancouver vs Calgary in the Conference Finals and then Vancouver vs Ottawa in the Finals (with Vancouver winning of course).
April 19, 2007 2:32:41 PM

Unfortunately with the wonky scheduling (WTF both Western Canadian teams playing the same night?), I didn't get to see much of that game, just the opening minutes, yeah I have to say considering what I've seen, it's definitely not Turco's fault this time around. The biggest problem though is you also have one of the other top goalies in the league at the other end. From what I saw early on Luongo stood on his head too.

The 3 games I saw were great and the opening period was good, I think Dallas to win needs to do what the Flames needed to do tonight, and simply win that day's game, not worry about the series.

While I wish you luck, sorry I do hope the Canucks win, nothing would be more fun than the Canucks - Flames in the playoffs, 3 years ago I went to 2 of the games here an they were awesome !!

Dallas needs to get their offence to work better in the corners IMO.

And while I agree that Dallas ended up outplaying Van for most of game 1, that was afer Vancouver dominated early. I think it will be a better series than in the past, but I still don't trust turco, he's burned me in 2 playoff pools already, that's why I didn't take him this year.

BTW, I need SJ to do their magic, thank god I didn't take Cheechoo, although he's good I just liked the production of Marleau and Joey Jo Joe and I needs them to make it to round 2 at least mang!

I'm enjoying watching the locals here go mental and wondering how they could be doing so poorly against Detroit,.... uh yeah....., consideirng they coasted into the playoffs on other people's loses, how could they possibly be down 2-zip !?!

It has been pretty entertaining. Now it's turned into what everyone thought at the beginning. Very close low scoring games, not the somewhat of a score fest of game 1.

Yeah seriously. I'm going to be at the game tonight 9rows from the glass. We need Guerin, Marleau, and Thorton to start scoring some goals!!! I think Bell is out and Pavelski's in for now to boost the offense a bit (even though Bell should be the better scorer).

Detroit's on a tear. They've been just pelting Kipper with tons of shots. They want really bad to get through the first round after the last couple of disappointing playoff runs.

The PS3 doesn't use all 7 "cores" for games. They are dedicated to certain things. One to the OS and so on. I am not going to go back and reread the article, but if I remember correctly 4-5 of the cores are actually used for running the game.
