Would you purchase a Hardware Backward Compatibility add-on?

Software compatibility coming late in the platform's life and not supporting all titles or added cost for all gamers when some hardware components are integrated in the new system to offer compatibility with the previous machine's games?

Used games sales... money back to publishers?

I wanted to make a small followup to a previous post about the used market as driver of new sales and point out this interesting Ars' Technica article and a very interesting new initiative in the used game market. More money for people selling their games, money to developers for each copy sold to other users by the store, and a profitable business model. Does it sound impossible to you? Well, I think this article is for you then!

Snow and cleaner air

After a month or two without rain and especially without a much prettier white mantle on top of polluted streets, we can safely enjoy the gentle curves and sights a good snowfall brings.

Snow has the property of being able to make the landscape more uniform while at the same time strengthening its own dominant outline. It can certainly bring a sense of calm and quietness that I find always so unique.

Il mercato delll'usato non serve solo ad oliare gli ingranaggi degli intermediari :).
Used market can have its advantages for the device makers :)!

AddictiveColors and Pocket Boy at the View Conference 2011

You should have seen a new link on the right of this blog, it's the Pocket Boy's blog, the app from AddictiveColors (my girlfriend and talented artist Clyo Parecchini and I). Well, I guess I am late for reporting such news to this sometimes neglected page, but Pocket Boy is now also on the iPhone and iPod touch. 
  • If you have one of the newer models with the famous Retina display, you can enjoy crisp visuals as we have properly optimized assets for that screen too.
  • AddictiveColors is going to be at this year's View Conference in Turin: we are scheduled to talk about our app and AddictiveColors at 4:30 P.M. on the 27th of October.

Here is the official site:

Follow updates about Pocket Boy and AddictiveColors over at the official Pocket Boy's blog and the official AddictiveColors' website.

Thank you!
