GDC 2007 Day 1

I'm sitting in a hall, waiting for Chris Taylor to give a postmortem on "Supreme Commander".

Other random snippets:

- Chris Hecker says the Wii is a piece of shit, and the PS3 and XBox 360 are atrocities. He went on to call on Nintendo to step up to the plate and treat games as an art form. One audience member, during the question period rebutted that Hecker, himself, was full of shit.

- Sony unveiled their 3D immersive social forum service, titled "Home". Once again, they seem to be delivering the wrong service to the wrong audience. Amusingly, their keynote had several hardware failures.
