315w ago - The class of 2007 learnt a pretty good lesson, too much hype results in a fundamentally flawed game. Rarely has there been a case that a game that has been running on a million shots of morphine, been able to cross the line of both critical acclaim and sales, with the year ending the buzz has already started on the lineup of 2008.
The original Devil May Cry sold millions to the PS2, after DMC's initial screening at E3, MGS 2 was not the only game people wanted to play.

To quote: The picture on the right shows the sleek and shiny PlayStation 3 by Sony. The picture on the left allegedly shows one of the Chinese factories where the PS3 is made. The pictures are from a BBS in China (see more here).
I have no idea on their veracity, but as my two students Sin Sai Kit and Go Yu Hang said in last night's tutorial presentation, it's another example of stakeholders presenting an alternative view and talking back to companies. The factory is not exactly what one might expect to be the production site for PlayStation.
