Back in September, while on the plane back from the Tokyo Game Show, I began stirring around a longish article for my sponsor on that trip. It took rather longer than I expected to finish, then took a while longer to go up on the site. Then when it did, it was altered to fit what my editor felt the site needed at that moment. Fair enough; I just asked permission to reprint it elsewhere, in its original form. And here it is! I think it’s got some interesting stuff in it, amongst the things you’ve heard before! Maybe not. At any rate, I thought some people out there might enjoy the opportunity to read it as intended.
