Ken Arnold writing in his blog on java.net thinks so. Ken believes that the benefits added to the language are not justified for the added complexity.
I must admit having read through some of the tutorials, at face value the concepts do not seem that complicated, but Ken has some examples on his site of some situations that seem pretty complicated to wrap your head around.
Last week, game studio Bizarre Creations released a couple of screenshots of their work in progress, Project Gotham Racing 3 for the upcoming XBox 360, and the press dismissed the images as actual screen shots, because they looked too real.
This week on their site Bizarre Creations have released a couple more in game screenshots, and confirmed that these pictures of New York buildings are real and are in game graphics. And to tell you the truth, they do look so real that I think we are truely in for a treat when the new next gen consoles (PS3 and XBox360) hit the streets.
Current rumors are indicating that the PS3 will shop for $399 when it ships, which will be at a loss of $100 per unit for Sony. If this article is correct, Merrill Lynch Japan Securities are indicating that Sony will lose $1.18bn dollars in the first year, on expected sales of 11 – 12 million units.
Also, previous rumors that the PS3 will ship with an integrated hard drive may not be correct, as Sony may choose to make the hard drive an option add on, in an attempt to keep the initial street price low.
