    Folks won't care, they'll still buy it, I bet if Microsoft came out and said game's won't be playable till a patch in January they'd still buy the thing.

    I really doubt this will even matter. As long as games work after the zero day update, all will be fine .. of course XBL has to be able to support the load of thousands of people concurrently downloading a 1.4GB update and then validating their consoles :p That's more important.

    Agreed! Hopefully we will see a clean up over there after the "regime change".

    Srsly who cares about the 3D? I doubt that many people even have a 3D capable TV.

    3d sucks ass in the theaters and at home, what a waste of technology. when it's 4d i'll care. and my view of 4d is tactile holograms, and when that is invented i'll be watching wild :banana:things on repeat playing the part of matt dillion myself.

    Nope, that will still be 3D, regardless of what marketing spin they put on it, if/when the time comes!

    What they call 3D now is technically 4D, the fourth dimension is time, without time you are watching a 3D photo.

    Sounds like you want to get in touch with Jean Luc Picard and have some intimate time on a holodec!

    I'm pretty sure MS wants to push their download movie service.

    "What they call 3D now is technically 4D, the fourth dimension is time, without time you are watching a 3D photo." Thats the stupidest thing that I have read in a long time. From that logic I must be a wizard if I can bend time. (forward,backward or stop the video)

    Sure is stupid. Time isn't even a thing it's a measurement. Oh well, just sounds like more excuses from MS.

    Did you do Physics at school? If not a quick wikipedia search will tell you that time is generally considered the 4th dimension:

    "In modern physics, space and time are unified in a four-dimensional Minkowski continuum called spacetime"
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four-dimensional_space

    If something has height, width and depth, its 3 dimensional, that is a 3D picture. If it has a time aspect, i.e. a 3D movie, its technically 4 dimensions.
