Question- What is your opinion of console homebrew? I know you said in one of your Zencasts (my word!) that you don't support software hacking, just the hardware. Did you just mean ISOs/ROMs or all homebrew software?

Why would they spend the time and money to port games? They're not microsoft (game-to-game backwards compatibility on 360)! Emulation is wwwwaaaaayyyyyy easier. And if they don't bother making more powerful hardware, why would they bother porting games? (sorry, I had to get that in)

Pessimist say that it's half empty.
Engineers say that it's twice as big as it needs to be.

Have you ever played the atari 2600 game "Freeway?" If so, what are your opinions on it?

Fair Point. I just think that would be the way Nintendo would work. I hope they do port them though, Becuase then atleast you'd get new features like a online score board (ala 360) and other things. I'm sure not many people would pay again to play the exact same game. But maybe they would, For convineince.
Meh... So I don't post much?

Do Fanboys really make up the majority of console/games sales?

Ayla: No.

There's a lot of questions here so I'll collect them all later today and delete this topic to lock it. Jones and I will answer all questions during Podcast Episode 6.

So get in any last Q's within the next 3 or 4 hours!

OK I have, sigh, 3 solid pages of questions for this new podcast. I may edit them down, but will try and give a short answer to each.

Topic closed til next time! Podcast should be up this coming Wednesday. (We record on Mondays)
