Two Interesting Gaming Links

First off, Jeff Green over at 1UP has a lengthy interview with Hellgate Studio's Bill Roper, which you can read here. It's frank and far-reaching, and answers many of the questions surrounding the Hellgate fiasco.

I remember mentioning that I thought Hellgate was screwed as soon as I read about their subscription model. Bill Roper mentions that they knew that, too--before the game launched--but at that point, they had no fallback position.

Matt Matthews has another excellent piece over at Edge--In-Depth Analysis Of Games And Console Sales. Matt is, by far, the premier writer when it comes to analyzing the console wars, and this is another first-rate article.
