    ps2's crappy graphics wanker, although ps2 has many more games which is very nice, the xbox blows it out of the water in everything else. but there is already a thread on this.

    Yes acually one did, it had over 10,000 signatures for some batman dvd to be release un-cut, because the company said they didn't want children to be watching.

    They had this huge campaign and they handed out flyers at all of the companies conventions and they gave up.

    I don't think all of the work MS does is bad... I love my MS mouse.

    If MS lets Vivendi run like it ran before, then all is good.

    You know, this could be good. More funding for Blizz games =
    better games sooner. That is the reason I won't sign this petition.

    But I could understand not wanting MS to own Blizz/Vivendi.

    Are you on drugs? Did MS let Bungie run the way it used to? NO!!!!

    Blizz gets all the funding they need. Think before you post.

    What the hell does a MS mouse have to do with the software division?

    Better games? Sooner?! Since when has Microsoft ever sped up development of any ****ing company they assimilate, especially game companies.

    Yeehaw, now we can have The Frozen Throne for Xbox 2 in 2006 with a PC/Mac version in 2010.

    No

    All I was saying about the MS mouse is that MS is capable of
    making good products, and many mac users don't think MS is
    capable of making good products.

    I didn't say that it meant better games sooner. I said it could
    happen. I dunno if MS will increase the funding on Blizz games
    or not, but if they do, then the games will be better. If they don't
    then I guess nothing much will have changed.

    Me thinks he chose a good person to get his name from, but it
    could be a bit more original ;) :D.

    The point is that we may never see Blizzard again on the Mac platform (did you read the whole page of that "Pie in Gates' Face" site?) or even worse. . .I MAY NEVER PLAY WoW!;)

    I can assure you. I am not arguing with myself. But about 3
    months ago someone told be about this guy, and I PMed him.
    I don't think he ever responded. So, no, that isn't me, but I sure
    would like to know who it is. ;)
