Exactly, that's why it's not true.

Exactly the reason I like Nintendo and get Nintendo Systems. I really liked Sega back in the day, but now Sega games are on Nintendo, so its all cool.
Playstation -> Meh
Xbox -> Teh G4y

Does Nintendo disgust me less than Sony and Microsoft? Yes. Does that make it the Patron Saint of the consumer? No. The bottom line is: Nintndo does not have the resources to compete with Sony or Microsoft. They recognized this, but were not ready to get out of the console market like Sega did. Instead, they redefined their goals as a console system developer, and it has worked for them. They make tons of money and are relatively safe in an industry famous for being as cut-throat as they come. I admire their business model and willingness to look at the big picture. At some point, their higher ups took a step back and said "Hey, we don't stand a fucking chance. Let's try to find a compromise that allows us to create the hardware and content that we want."
At any rate, I plan on buying a PS3 and a Revolution, though that plan may change if my apathy toward video games increases beyond it's already all-time high."No. Listen to me because I know what I'm talking about here." -- Hannibal

Interestingly enough, it seems that the revolution controller is actually stirring up some interest in the developers. One of the first games in development for the Revolution is Red Steel by Ubisoft. It's a first-person shooter (with swords as well) that takes advantage of the Revolution controller. The even have it set so that controller orientation affects the gun orientation in the game; the angle of the gun on screen is the same as the angle of your hand (so, for example, you can shoot "gangsta style").
I was skeptical about the controller at first, but it's beginning to look really interesting.

GB - Nice post. I fully concur.
Bugeisha, that sounds pretty cool. Even though i'm an ubisoft hater, i might just have to check that out.
MJS - I know the question in your new sig is rhetorical, but the answer is:
edit: it appears the wolf actually wears a shirt, but i can't find a picture that includes his feet, so it may still be relevant.

Actually, "no shoes, no shirt" applies to the employees. Unless the place posts that they "reserve the right to refuse service to anyone", you can't be denied service for not wearing shoes or a shirt (Although if you're a woman, not wearing a shirt might be a problem).
I've been to fast food restraunts barefoot and have heard of people grocery shopping bare-chested, though it's probably not worth the trouble of trying to get into an upscale restraunt without a shirt on.
