Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't journalists do research?
Conservative Canadian, eh?
Can I punch her in the face?
Because playing video games is such a waste and people don't spend days in queue's queuing for things like festival tickets or even to fucking vote in the last UK election.
As for the Blu-ray thing, that's actually pretty true, un beknownst to her. The Blu-ray device in the PS3 was so much cheaper than a Blu-ray player that's exactly why many people ended up buying PS3's. It's a home entertainment system more than a simple games console.

Dislike button please
I was trying to be constructive with this article, but more i read it, more obvious it became that only logical way to sum this article up is: "That is fucking stupid"
Hopefully she gets fired.
IIRC she's freelance and this is several years old. Way to remember when the Wii and PS3 came out.
I'm not really bothered by this. She's not the first to write on the subject, nor will she be the last. Haters gonna hate, and all that. Plus, if she really is freelance, how many people read this at the time of writing? And how many would admit to agreeing, given her obvious ignorance and lack of fact-checking? She admits to not understanding large parts of what she's writing about, which is an automatic red flag that she shouldn't be writing about it in the first place.
EDIT: What publication is this from, if anyone knows? I just remembered "freelance" and "self-published" aren't the same thing. :\
Gaming is as worthless as reading fantasy books, or books that doesn't teach you anything. I don't get her logic at all. Gaming is fine. But playing WoW for 1 week then die for it, is just fucking sick...
Such people make me feel better about my own intelligence
Just keep in mind - you can't be playing games and reading newspapers at the same time.
