    Out of all those things I really wanted to see more Airbus 380s and SED Televisions.

    The Optimus-103 Keyboard seemed nice, got downgraded and I never look at my keyboard anyway...

    I'm looking forward to Spore, it could be interesting if it's been designed well.

    seriously, i got fed up of waiting too, but im still gonna buy it coz its a defining game that could still potentially make a real genre changing impact. and that info is also posted on the official stalker site for anyone that wants to go see :D

    "Duke Nukem Whenever" is a much more fitting title

    Vaporware are products or games that dont seem like they will ever be released?

    If so, then why is Spore on that list? We all know its coming..

    Just like we know DNF is coming. Spore site has been the same for over a year.
