but azrael makes many significant points, and I agree very much with the fact that Sony is banking on the success of the BluRay format. It's true, that it is far too early to say who will win, not only in the console war, but the format war as well (360's HDDVD versus PS3's BluRay). In many respects, the PS3 seems to be packaged more than a console, but a digital hub - which explains it's absurd price. Moreover than just playing video games, they expect people to watch movies, store songs, view pictures - almost everything in your digital life should revolve around the PS3.

I think this is biting off a little more than you can chew, but most of these qualms seem to revolve around the fact that the thing is just too darned expensive, which makes these "unnecessary features" somewhat unappealing to the consumer. I bet most people who loved video games in the past generations would love to get a hold of a PS3 just to play games... not to watch movies or surf the internet. It's just that since the modern video gamer's life revolves around the internet and all sorts of digital media, they figured stuffing it all-in-one would be a gamer's dream.

Another problem is the timing... it is a bit late, and a bit early - somewhat the opposite of the timing of the PS2, like azrael pointed out.

Oh god that post reeks of utter failure.


Does it really? hmmmmmm well seeing how GTA3, Vice-City and San-Andreas were all better on the X-box it makes perfect sense how the fourth would be better on the 360. Rockstar freely admitted that they were better run on the x-box so yeah.... and seeing as how the Creators showed their love on those 3 you would think they would do it again.

It was actually a brilliant move for Nintendo to completely side step the whole HD-DVD vs Blue Ray argument and tell people "hey guys, we're just here to make games"

Anytime someone has tried to sell some monolithic all in one media center, it's failed. I don't know why Sony thinks they're going to succeed now.

People who say the 360 is better is an obvious failure.

Look at the hardware for a second, you\'ll see the PS3 is superior.
Look at the capabilities for a second, PS3 ahead.
Look at the games, Ohh a surprise, 360.. Why? IT HAD A FUCKING YEAR AND IT ONLY HAS ONE GOOD GAME. And the game isn\'t that good.

People who say the Wii, same thing.

As well, the Wii won\'t get GOOD games, but fun games.

Not a Sony fanboy here, I just know that the PS3 is the best hard-ware wise, and will; as like the PS2, come out in lead near this generation of consoles end.

They all have one good game, or one game preferred by the mainstream.

360: Gears of War - Has plenty wrong but still manages to be \"good\"?
PS3: Resistance: Fall of Man - Standard FPS game, which is very fun.
Wii: TLOZ: TP - AKA every other Zelda Game, prettier, new dungeons, and one or two new items, as well, it\'s good.

360 has no excuse for one good exclusive in over a year.
Wii and PS3 do.


1 game? please want a list of exclusive massive selling titles out on the 360?

well here it is:

Gears of War Release Date: November 7, 2006
Halo 3 Release Date: Fall 2007
Halo Wars TBA

PGR 4 TBA
Eternal Sonata TBA
Blue Dragon August 2007
Shadowrun Release Date: June 2007
Crackdown Release Date: February 20, 2007

Total: 23

Now lets look at some PS3 Exclusives shall we?

WarHawk Release Date: September 2007

FF versus Release Date: TBA 2008 (Possibly on 360)
Resistencefallofman Release Date: November 13, 2006

Metal Gear Solid Release Date: Q4 2007

Tekken 6 Release Date: TBA 2008
Monster Kingdom TBA
Omikron 2 TBA
Gran Turismo 5 Release Date: Q1 2008
Heavenly Sword TBA 2007

Total: 18 and 2 of them are possiblity\'s to come to 360. PS3 also lost DMC4 and Resident Evil 5 which are now confirmed coming to the 360.

With square now in possession of the Unreal 3 engine, built for best workings on a 360, you will see them begin to play with bringing games out onto the 360.



Also remember that the graphics on a 360 all depend on the amount on of coding they do, the more the better, and gears of war didnt even go close to the amount it can hit.

As I understand it, those may not be exclusives anymore. I think a few others on that list may be going multiplatform as well.

I knew about the two FF's not being exlcusive rumour, but now Metal Gear Solid as well? PS3 is in huge trouble if that is true.

Well I myself own a 360 and a Wii. I might get a ps3 if Sony stops screwing around, and drops the price by at least 200, but that wont happend for a long time.

^ Sony might take advantage of the next holdiay (november) to help lower the prices. The price drop at this point might not be that great, but after the holdiay, I think the price can go down. But many people will say this is digging their own grave. Sony has lost quite a lot of money selling units for much less than what it took to produce it. The hopes of lowering cost of production by selling more units might work.. but it's taking too long. Like what many people have said, the Xbox 360 and Wii already have a steady hold on the market. The PS3 has hardly created a niche for itself.

Could it be that people who develop consoles dont play them much ?

I heard from the radio that only about 400,000 PS3's were made for the world, and they were divided up equally amongst the continents. Thats why it was so hard for store to get ahold of even a few PS3's. Does anyone know if thats true?

I could believe that theory to be true.

Doesn't sound very credible. For one thing, it doesn't make sense to "divide equally" since it's given that the demands in each "continent", and even more so, each region would be different. Doing something like "dividing equally" sounds like a childish means of distributing units, something even Sony isn't stupid enough to think of.

Is it true that the PS3 is not region specific, but only to PS2 titles? My friend told this to me, and he writes for RPGgamer. Just wanna double check. If that's the case, I guess that isn't too bad. :P
