1. The problem with consoles becoming more like PCs is well, they eventually get to be just as hackable as PCs.

    I don’t think 15 years ago anyone thought consoles would have the same ports as one another. I mean, really. Even if some older controllers ran on the USB spec (like the original Xbox), console designers went out of their way to change the pins around, producing a wide variety of strange configurations. Now the PS3, X360 and Wii all have USB ports. Fascinating.

  2. Saw this on a mailing list at work today—turns out this guy works at the same company I do. (Of course, it’s a massive company, and he’s on the other side of the world, but still.)

  3. Arg, use a tripod!

What Is Gamefilter?

Gamefilter is a community weblog based in spirit and intent on the great work of Matt Haughey and his staff at Metafilter. It's all about sharing links to interesting stuff on the web, but with a narrower focus on gaming-related links -- good stuff that other people might not have already seen -- and talking about them.

Anyone can join for the low low price of zero dollars, and once you're a member, you have the senses-shattering power to post new stuff right from the front end of the site, and talk about that stuff in the comment threads. You don't need an account to read GFi, but as well as giving you The Power To Post, membership also lets you
