Garnett Lee is away at DICE this week, but never fear! Jeff Cannata, Jeff Mattas, Andrew Yoon, and Alex Albrecht convene for this week's spirited episode of Weekend Confirmed. Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time gets a glowing recommendation from Andrew, Mattas talks about his experience playing through Dead Space 3 twice in one week, and Alex opines about a big crop of past and present MMORPG's. Cannata also shares his very impressive, hands-on experience with Google Fiber, and an extra-strength dose of Finishing Moves puts the wrapping on this week's show.

  • Comparisons to Apple TV are freaking stupid! For one, Apple TV is not even remotely as successful as current gen consoles (or alternative smart tv options for that matter)... all of which already provide the same functionality as Apple TV.

    Apple TV is not doing anything innovative. All smart tv's from vendors such as Samsung and LG have the same services built into them already. The need to name drop the service like 30 times only signals the fact that you are one of the Apple brainwashed idiots that think everything Apple does is praiseworthy. Apple TV isn't opening the door for shit... they're just doing more of what has already been done. I'm glad that you're enjoying you're obviously enjoying your purchase... but it was highly irrelevant to the discussion on consoles b/c both Sony and Microsoft already provide the same services that are available through Apple TV.... and to a MUCH wider audience.

    Hell, even Google TV is leagues better than Apple TV with the search/voice search features... plus the ability to interact with live programming and not just online content.

    And still... my preferred venu for online services would be my console if it were as easy to control as Google TV (no need for remotes or controllers). The only major advantage of services like Google TV or Apple TV is the ability to stream content directly from our tablets or smartphones. Sony could technically allow streaming from all Android devices, as they likely will from their Xperia line of phones. But if either Sony or Microsoft limit this feature to their own branded devices, that would be the only real weakness of their service compared to Google or Apple.
