    First off, I've never seen so much blatant insults in comments in my 5+ years on GR. I hope this website's comment sections won't turn into what happened over at Gamespot, where it was impossible to say anything without 67 people calling you a shithead and wishing painful deaths upon your whole family and pets. Please keep it classy people. Second of all, I hate to be that guy, but you used "you're" instead of "your" in that Micrsoft slide. And finally : Good article. I truly can't understand the hate towards EA. They f*cked up a video game, and that sucks. But that's it. Reading some comments, you'd think they've enslaved a whole country or murdered kittens on live TV.

    "early adopters of Microsoft's Xbox 360 experienced the infamous red ring" I'm sorry but that's false. As if later adopters had it good... I bought my XBOX in 2008. I got the Falcon board, which was the 2nd major hardware revision (or 3rd if you count the HDMI model). That's 3 whole years after the initial release. Still had a RROD shortly after my warranty expired. My 3 friends who also got their XBOXes around the same time also got RROD a little sooner (as i didn't play all that much). Every single one of them. So no, it wasn't an "early" problem, Microsoft continued to produce the same piece of junk for at least 3 years. They finally made a decent console after the Jasper model which was released in 2009. Great work Microsoft.

    I have a falcon board 360 (with HDMI) and to this day no problems out of it, maybe it's just me

    Deus ex. No matter what path you choose. Stealth/all out attack. You still end up with it all. That and the outsourced terrible boss battles.

    What he does not mention is the fact that PS3 really honestly sucks balls! I really wish I could forget sony`s existance!
  • biertje373 - March 16, 2014 1:54 a.m.

    What he forgot to mention was people like you, people who are trying to start a fricking console war. People who can't respect other people their opingion.

    As a sole computer gamer, these moments can be felt even by me... from game sites such as this.

    YES on the console failure rate. I had one of each crap out on me: My Wii, a 2006 launch model, had to get sent back a year after I got it because of the random multicolored pixels issue. This is caused by WiiConnect24, which turns on and runs the system at full power with no fan. This eventually fries the GPU, causing the freaky pixels. Even with WiiConnect24 disabled from the get-go, my replacement Wii still has that problem today. It doesn't matter as much since the Wii has been demoted to a GameCube HD with the addition of the Wii U. My 360, which I acquired in 2007, red-ringed in early 2010, right as I was about to finish Shadow Complex. Lucky for me, I just barely squeezed into the extended warranty window. The new one's still running strong. My PS3, a refurbished 20 GB launch model, was probably the worst of all. I bought it used from GameStop in early 2008, right after Blu-ray won the format war, because I wanted one with PS2 backward compatibility and the only one you could buy off a shelf that did that used the crappy emulation method. I received and sent back three of them before I finally got one that worked properly. Then, just this past winter, the system failed while I was watching a Blu-ray. Everything work except for the disc drive; since at that point I only used the PS3 as a Blu-ray player, it effectively rendered the system useless to me. I was able to get it repaired for about a hundred bucks, and aside from a scare when it nearly ate my Pacific Rim disc last fall, it's still working pretty well today.

    What the hell does BP have to do with a survey of AMERICAN companies. Take a close look at the companies on that list. BP isn't eligible, cuz British Petroleum, it turns out, isn't based in America. ... seriously... sheesh... I don't disagree with the point you were trying to make. EA is a terrible company, but there are more than a few AMERICAN companies worse than EA, without a doubt. I think Bank of America should have won honestly.

    To the people on here STILL bringing up the Mass Effect 3 ending debacle: I am so sick and tired of that being brought up. Yes, I was among the many, many gamers and fans of the series who hated the original ending, because it was illogical, had little foreshadowing and offered very ambiguous conclusions, but since the Extended Cut came out I have reversed my opinion entirely. Bioware made a ton of effort fixing what needed to be fixed, and they should be thanked, not still complained at by you "fans". The Extended Cut filled in quite a few plot holes and massively expanded on the choices given at the end, and even gave you an entirely new choice of refusal. The final memorial scene alone could have fixed it, in my opinion. It was heart-breakingly well done. The Leviathan DLC also expanded on the plot twists concerning the Reapers and the Catalyst, and gave it some much needed and very well-written foreshadowing, which fixed the original issue of the ending not making much sense and coming out of nowhere. The rest of the game is still fantastic (and the Citadel DLC remains the best DLC I've ever played), but now I can look forward to the multiple endings instead of wanting to yell at the developers. Now, when the next ME game rolls around (and it SHOULD be a prequel, the ending choices make a direct sequel simply too difficult to write and construct around), I will buy it, play it and probably love it. Your complaining about Bioware will have no effect on that, and if you don't buy it or boycott it, your loss.

    I cannot explain how much I hated the original version of Mass Effect 3, in its entirety, I have a burning, seething, white-hot hatred of that game and it makes my blood boil to the point of instantly filling my rage-meter when I think about it. Literally the only way I can think of to have it discussed properly is with a Plinkett-style review dissecting why the game failed, and spoiler alert- it WASN'T just the hilarious ending. I'm glad the original writers sucked it up and rewrote it to be less retarded and fill in some of the plot holes with DLC but nevertheless, fuck that game and screw the next game if it is a prequel and not a sequel to ME3, However, with all of that said, the calls of boycotts, entitled fan demands and voting the company above the goddamn Bank of America, and companies with a history of human rights violations and contributions to the ruin of the US economy? Moronic. Oh and as a Sony fan, all of what they did last generation bothered me immensely. With that said, I bought two PS3s for my living room and bedroom and had to go through seven Xbox's until I just sold the damn thing so the slide about system failures resonates with me.
