Will Naughty Dog's The Last of Us bring more females to the core gamer ranks? Should we expect to see more female heroine games for next gen consoles?

Are any consumers seriously considering buying blackberry phones? I would even question the enterprise support of blackberry given the Android adoption in enterprise. All I can say is that if Thorsten Heins can turn RIM around and regain lost share, not just stop the bleeding but truly recapture share from Android then he should probably be considered CEO of the year (well maybe 2014 cause we wont really know until then).  http://bit.ly/11i8vbR

I think MSFT had no choice amd had to male this move. The applause Sony received when they announced no DRM requirement on PS4 at E3 dictated this. But now whats the main difference. While i liked the PS4 news and product ai saw at E3 i did criticize Sony for lack of technical innovation in this new platform. Sony announced some great news for us gamers and playstation fans but the news was mostly about business model changes that really did not require a new platform. They could have made those changes on PS 3. I would have expected some new tech or platform enablement. I wrote about it on my tumblr page if you eant to see the comparison.

Now that maft has matched drm whats the difference?

Seems like state sponsored software piracy to me. A better UX is not a justification for stealing software. Apple needs to figure out a solution without alienating the Chinese consumer.
