Since the merit of CD's and DVD's has already been suggested, I think  videogames should fall into the same category.

I'm surprised about people's stances on music, dvds and games. I guess I understand where you're coming from, but GAMES :(

I'm not necessarily for or against having those things on the site, but it needs to be pretty carefully considered, because of how little data there is about them.

PS. Bioshock is the most addictive game, ever. I wish I had an Xbox. >_<

Do you have a fast computer? It runs on that. You might need Vista though.

heh, no. I have an EeePC and a Mac Mini. I suppose I could run Vista, but in the end, I'd be spending so much it'd be better to get an Xbox anyway.

The irony is that I work in a computer store. >.<

Hey, I have a Compaq Presario from 2001. It has a .5 gigahertz processor and only 128mb RAM. I know what you mean.

What policies about the inclusion/exclusion of books? See this example.

@squalorking, dialup: there's nothing wrong with low-power computing. It's actually quite refreshing after seeing all this superlative techno-junk being regurgitated from CES.

I like CD/DVD/Video Games on the site....without those items I think PW would be lacking a big chunk of products that people are interested in.  Even if those items are not why people log on to the site, I see the value of having them in there since I think people refer to those type of products while they are on the site.  Why force them to go elsewhere to research a videogame or DVD while they are already checking things out on PW?  I think it is important to remember not every person who uses PW is a technophile.

I realize that I wasn't clear enough.

I'm not saying we don't add books, movies, websites, etc., but rather develop a more strict policy about deletion of spammy books, movie, websites.

For example, I think that if an author comes to PW, and adds a shilly product report about their book that is ranked 100,000+ on Amazon, I think it should be deleted. If a community member adds a report on their favourite book, it's a definite keep.

I might have just gotten off work at the time of the meeting, but that changes day to day.

 

Yeah, theres all sorts of people who will see PW as an easy way to get some links, and while some are obviously spam theres bound to be a lot of gray area that has to be defined to prevent mounds of junk content.
