    I can’t wait to play Batman AC it looks pretty darn good and the first one was solid. My only concern is that they will make the puzzles too easy with the revamped detective mode they’ve been tooting.

      No, Diabetus caused the downfall of the Roman Empire. Nobody should celebrate him in any way or form.

    Online is dead, hugh I remember hearing pc devs say that over a decade ago after quake showed us what online was good for. And yet SP games persist and sell well.

      EA consider Dragon Age a total flop… like the Sim
      Yet, EA would be bankrupt if it wasn’t was single player games.

      Weird comment…

        They’re a bunch of schemers who would rather tell people what they want than give people what they want.

        As nice as it is to see paid downloads making headway, I’m a bit disappointed to see that it’s working out for EA, as one of the greatest possibilities that digital distribution offered was freeing the video game publishing industry from them.

      Great comment from the original article’s discussion:

    With the final confirmation from RIM that QNX is the future OS platform for all Blackberry devices, they now have possibly the best foundation in the industry. Now, if they can just steal the designers of the WebOS GUI away from Google… (who stole them away from /[

      • DancinJack
      • 9 years ago

      Did you see they also bought a UI company a week or so ago? With the reliability of Blackberry, QNX and a new UI they could once again get back to competing. (Not that they still don’t have ~35% smartphone share in the US)

        • dpaus

        No, but i just found the news via Google – good for them! Yep, that should put them back in the hunt.
