    Couldn't care less, Australia has qualified for the World Cup.

    Ah yes, foot... ball... that's that one that's kind of like hockey but without sticks, and they're on grass, right?

    There's only cup, as far as I'm concerned, and it's Lord Stanley's.

    That said I am looking forward to watching some World Cup.

    Watching football and I don't get along, which is odd, because I played it for years growing up, and was on my dorm's intramural team. Just not something I enjoy being a spectator for, I suppose.

    On an unrelated note, man, I am shocked at how much Fire Emblem makes me want to use the 3D effect. It's really not the series I was expecting fantastic visuals from.

    Hard to say, it's kind of at that intersection of sold really well and unknown number of still functioning units. I suspect the pricing can fluctuate significantly.

    As regards FE: oh my god they removed the Support caps. THE FOOLS!

    Excellent. That's the other sport I follow besides hockey because the seasons only overlap a little.

    "Soccer" actually comes from "association football," apparently, so yes, to all my fellow North Americans who loudly insist that 'Merican football is the true football, Europe is right.

    Good thing, too, I've been wanting to run those retinal pattern analyses on Commodore Schmidlapp. There's something fishy about that old bird.

    [link=http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/06/19/microsoft-reversing-xbox-one-internet-used-game-policies]I do so like it when the consumer wins![/link]

    Ok, granted, the article is coming from IGN, but the info is also popping up on [link=http://kotaku.com/microsoft-is-removing-xbox-one-drm-514390310]Kotaku[/link]. Multiple sites are also reporting that the official XBox One Q&A page is being updated at the moment to reflect the changes.

    Engadget has a quote from the site reading, "As a result of feedback from the XBox community, we have changed certain policies for XBox One reflected in this blog,"

    In other news, they are also renaming the XBox One to XBox 180.

    EDIT: It's official. Microsoft has confirmed the policy reversal.

    Microsoft is too casual to stick with their guns :p

    Funnily enough, I wonder if its Gamestop that finally broke Microsoft when they completely removed the Xbox One from their stores and canceled pre-orders.

    Actually, today was the day Gamestop hits its Xbone preorder cap.

    I'm wondering if it's because Amazon numbers were low, or because the mainstream was starting to pick up on it.

    Further reasons to hate Gamestop - they willingly sell a product that hasn't yet been released that will ruin future business for them.

    The sense - I do not know where it is in that strategy.

    Pfft, nah, remember that line about "Participating retailers"?

    That was a subtle code.

    I inadvertently attempted to overcomplicate my purchase - back in Arizona you used to have to present ID to sell used games. Here in Colorado the attendant just gave me a quizzical look when I pulled it out.

    But yeah, it's a tick too Byzantine. If they hadn't had a smoking deal on extra credit this week I probably wouldn't have mine.

    Ramza, I picked up The Essential James Joyce.

    Contains Dubliners, Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Exiles, and Joyce's poems, as well as extracts from Ulysses and Finnegan's Wake.

    I'm halfway through Dubliners and there are no words.

    Hey, I own... probably that exact book, actually. It was the cheapest way to get Dubliners and Portrait.

    And I'm hoping that's the good kind of speechless. :p

    Let's put it this way, if it wasn't the good kind of speechless I wouldn't be halfway through it :p :p

    My God, what this man does with images. And how he reaches in for emotions that are true. I think he had me by the end of Araby, and probably when he first said that a stablemaster "shook music" from a horse's bridle.

    What does it say about me that I, a long time Sony customer, am really disappointed by this news, and instead wanted them to cling to their original policy even as I complained about it and watched the product go down in flames?
