Article: Walmart: Walmart Suggests Cardboard Packaging, Save Games
Walmart: Always full of dumbasses. Always.
Yeah, that's why they fail. I think its a good idea to have a save function on games, Wal Mart is smarter than everyone in the Video Games industry!
fuck, being able to 'save' my progress in a game would be awesome. playing mgs4 for 20 hours straight was seriously tiring.
I don't believe it's possible for them to do this. I mean don't get me wrong, I would love nothing more than to turn my PS2 off (been playing Dragon Quest 8 for 6 months and my PS2 hasn't turned off, nor have I been able to play any other game on it), but I just think the prospect of adding a save feature to games "like you would any word document" is just not possible. Not with a thousand men could you do this. I give them props for the suggestion though.
exactly. this is like some shit from star trek or something.
What is this "save" thing? I have never heard of it.
can you imagine being able to save your progress so you can come back to it at a later time? that sounds amazing. i wish that type of technology had been around since the nes days! can you imagine how games like zelda and dragon warrior could have benefitted? cardboard packaging sounds revolutionary too. i would have never expected them to come out with anything like that back in the cartridge days.
Ugh I've seen those "planet safe" DVD cases before and I'd rather not have my games come in those...
Remember when Sega went Green during the Genesis days? I could have had all 4 Phantasy Stars in nice plastic covers, but instead, Phantasy Star Four is in a cheap cardboard box.
planet safe dvd cases always look like they belong in the $2.97 dvd bin. as soon as i see one with a regular dvd price tag i pass.
Wow, I had a case of the stupid while reading the article.
I'm reading this actually thinking "Hey, Walmart may be onto somthing", but when they started talking about save games I was confused and had to re-read the entire article again and I feel dumb now.
Anyone remember when the Genesis games were packaged in cardboard towards the end of their lifespan? I thought it was horrible, it would wear out and then you had no where to put your game.
I always just tossed cartridges in a drawer.
Cartridges, sure, but disks?
it's like a computer. you're a super advanced computer, and the code you were reading was so incredibly badly written and wrong that you basically shat your pants and rebooted.
and also, i don't think this save thing is possible. we don't live in fantasy land. it's 2008 for christ's sake not 2108. jesus. next they'll be trying to invent bicycles that have motors, or phones that don't need cords.
what's an internet? where am i?
PS3 and 360 does have screen power down mode... Walmart are dumb.
This will make it harder to be a plastic crackhead. That cardboard stuff is'nt nearly as addictive.
Next idea, lets start making all the plastic toys cardboard. Boximus Prime and Papertron will fyte it out in epic battle.
Then you can stop in mid transformation and go eat dinner, then come back and finish changing it to a robot.
Quit being stupid.
Doesn't cardboard come from trees? I wonder where they will get the cardboard for 101 million games.
