After scattered issues, looks like sony just went and pulled the 2.40 firmware, with 2.36 now showing as the latest.


But at least it's free, right guys?

I figured i put off entering this contest long enough, considering today's the last day.

Yes, i have a dell. Complete with tacky case lights. It's been about 2 years since I got it, and aside from a couple of issues, it wasn't that bad.For the first year, it was great. It could handle any game i threw at it. Now it's beginning to show it's age. The geforce 7800 gtx in it can't make most new games playable past medium settings. I'm planning on upgrading the video card soon, but i'm pretty low on cash. Besides, i won't even need to if i win. Oh, i also have a basic Toshiba laptop for surfing the internet/work. Nothing special.

So i turn on my 360 to start downloading the DMC 4 demo that was released to day, when i'm greeted with a message that says "this item is currently for Xbox Live gold members only. Silver members can check again in a few days or upgrade to a Xbox Live Gold membership.

Now i know what you're going to say, "Why not just upgrade to a gold membership?"
Well, i hardly have the time to play online anymore, so why waste money? I usually buy a 1 month card when i need it, and i end up wasting most of it too. Good thing i have my PS3 to fall back on.

This isn't the first time they did this, and it's really starting to piss me off.

"Troller is looking for a response...ANY response, and he will chum the waters with complaints, insults, compliments, and inflammatory tidbits hoping that someone...ANYONE, will take the bait. Generally quite harmless - practices a form of catch and release. Nonetheless, he can upset the delicate ecology of a discussion forum. Once a forum becomes aware of his presence, however, all feeding activity ceases and Troller must move on to more promising waters."

Fell free to add one that describes yourself or anyone else around here.
