I saw the same article on IGN.com also. I bought SimCity on Monday afternoon and installed it and realized that my PC probably doesn't have enough RAM to run it. So I am off to the store tonight to buy more RAM and possibly a new graphics card. The game is awesome just make sure you have enough on your PC to play it

I like the new SimCity, but I wouldn't rush out to buy it until the bugs are out of it. Last week the servers had major problems. They doubled the number of servers, but there are still some issues with gameplay, like running out of water. (Hint, leave plenty of room next to your sewer plant for a water system and use the filter upgrade) I currently have a city of 150K people, and I've run out of room. I hope they are able to make some bigger city maps in the future.

It looks like by the way the article reads it was dying a slow death anyways and Disney just finished it off.

They were spinning their wheels on their in house projects. Let someone else who is better at it do the dirty work.

No posts about the XBOX One? I'm sure you all have read about it so I won't bother posting a link. But what do you think? They haven't said or shown much about the gaming aspect of the machine. And the price is still a question mark. But I'm intrigued for sure. The Skype capabilities make it an easy sell for DW. For $399 I think I would probably do it.

Can I still call myself a gamer dad if the xbox 360 has only been turned on a few times in 6 months to watch the Aristocats and the Jungle Book? Last Xbox game I really played was Halo 4 for a few weeks after release. Or if the PS3 only gets used to watch video and the wife uses it more to watch Smash or Dancing with the Stars(?) than we use it to watch blu rays? The last PS3 game I tried to play was Tiger Woods but I got tired of mostly watching load screens and playing once in awhile. I have used the computer to play Mark of the Ninja for a few weeks back in January and can maybe get a couple of hours of Borderlands 2 in each week.

OK- let's see if anyone actually reads this thread.

XBOX One. Anyone gonna get it? $499. I'm pretty sure I'll be in line outside of Best Buy on Nov 21 for the midnight opening. If I can flip it for a few hundred $$ profit, I'll sell it and buy another when supply catches up with demand. If I can't sell it for a good profit, I can just return it.

I just haven't decided if I want to keep one long term. I haven't figured out how I'd use it. I don't play games as much as I used to, but if the kinect is as good as they say it is, that may change. There may be things on there that I might actually do with the kids. Kinect Rival Sports (or whatever it's called) looks good. And I know they'd get a kick out of Zoo Tycoon.

For me, I'd get Madden 25 and probably Titanfall for my FPS multiplayer. I'm getting tired of COD.

I wanted to preorder one or two to sell on ebay. My wife said no. I see they are already going for $150+ over retail. I can only imagine that will go up as people begin to freak that they won't get one for Christmas.

I think Best Buy had two pre-order opportunities. Both sold out within a day. So I didn't get one. But the good news is that it's an indication of strong demand.
