I was a little bummed about about a basketball game last night (NC State
eliminated Duke from a tournament) and today looked at State's site for
their POV regarding that, but happened to notice
http://news.ncsu.edu/releases/2007/march/041.html, their clulster of
Playstation 3's. It's hard to feel animousity towards someone doing that :-)
Conventional wisdom among gamers is that game maufacturers push prices on
the platfrom as low as imaginable, as they make their profits from the game
cartridges themselves; making this idea very amusingly cost-effective.
But surely somewhere in Raleigh there is a machine named Beowulfpack, and
that just seems unfair :-)
