This has been an unusual weekend, since instead of watching zero movies–which is how about 99% of my weekends go–I watched two movies. Only one of these films is based upon a short story by Philip K. Dick, but the other is in the general ballpark of Philip K. Dick mind-fuckitude.(more…)
So back in 2008, I purchased the Xbox 360 Arcade Bundle, which included what was at the time the standard Xbox 360, which came with absolutely no hard drive. Even then, I knew that was really dumb, because hell–even the original Xbox had a hard drive, and it was very useful.
Fast forward to a few years later and while toying with the notion of purchasing the Kinect for my birthday, I discover that not only does it require that you have at least the 4GB Xbox 360 (which now is the standard–as far as I can tell, they don’t sell the console anymore without a hard drive…because basically, you need a hard drive for everything now), but my Xbox 360 console doesn’t even have a proper power supply to support the Kinect. So…basically, my Xbox 360 is a huge piece of crap and kind of useless for the next generation games. It’s kind of equivalent to owning the original Xbox at this point.(more…)
