The only real qualifications you should have if you are looking to buy your own car should be, can you afford it, will it get you from A to B reliably for an extended amount of time, and it has a relatively low maintenance cost and decent gas mileage. "Sporty" really doesn't help any of those goals at all.
No matter what you drive people will assume things about you though. For instance I have a '95 BMW 525 and people think I am rich or sell drugs. Even though the trim is falling off and there are several dents and the windshield is cracked that doesn't stop people from being generally rude to someone they think is rich because they pulled into a gas station at night to clean the windshield. They think you are just acting like a douche but in reality you couldn't see out of the windshield because your wipers don't work.
I am 23 and have been through about 7 vehicles. Bad luck there. Next car I get will be something that I can work on myself and be able to get the parts at Auto Zone or just move so I don't need a damn car.
What I meant by this was the essentially HD when referring to most consumer electronics is a buzzword in nothing more. Nintendo is now years behind on the HD front and it will be interesting to see how they enter the field after dealing with hardware that just can't touch the competitors. Will the games run natively in those resolutions or just be hastily upressed? How will they handle the changes to art style that were almost industry wide? Will the online offerings feel like they are from 15 years ago? At least I can answer that one, yes.
What would actually be more eco friendly is delivering our games through the magic of the internets. Completely skipping the step that involves making shitty cases as an attempt to appear eco friendly.
Sequel in the works heading to both PS3 and 360 called Dark Souls. Super pumped! If you are not then you are a terrible person. The biggest thing that catches my eye about this is the world will be "seamless". This could put some interesting twists into play and give them the space to add a ton of new and unexpected features. Can't wait to walk around and explore while being anxious about whats going to try an come eat me next.
I didn't see it posted, I suppose I should have elaborated (which I will and then some). The idea of a kill switch is a good one, and necessary in my mind if it is used on a platform that is meant to be closed. The guy(s) hacking the PS3 and other devices do so under the guise of "homebrew applications" most of the time. That is all well and good but they are knowingly violating multiple policies. Most people who actually put these hacks to use are not going to be making any of their own homebrew, they will be pirating games.
The PS3 has been out for a while and up until now has not been hacked. If it took that long, Mr. Geohot probably has some talent that could probably be more constructively utilized elsewhere. Instead of, you know, providing people with tools to steal things. What a waste.
