So, you are telling me that because the contents and the games that the three system are getting, they are the equivalent of last generation's system.

360=ps2
ps3=xbox
wii=gamecube

Now, obviously, I know you can't be saying that this generation of gaming is the same as last generations, but the contents for 360 and ps3 are reversed according to last year's generation, Xbox and ps2. You are saying that during the generation of xbox and ps2, ps2 had the greater games than the xbox. So now, you are saying that the two are mixed, 360 now has better games than ps3.

To simply put it, you are saying that the 360 ARE the ps2 because of it's amount of better games considering how the ps2 had better games than xbox last generation. and vise versa with the ps3.

Wii and gamecube, that part I am a little thrown off. But, no one really cares about the wii and gamecube, Nintendo is not a company that provides hardcore gaming experience but more family oriented. They aim for something a family can have fun with.

Yes, most likely. Many of the popular Japanese companies that made exclusive ps2 games are transferring to the 360. There are other reasons...

Arguably, people will want to go into deep details about how ps3 is better than the 360 and contribute to the console war.

I deal with broken English every day so I am able to understand almost anything, even with the smallest amount of information. I am not saying your English is broken, because it obviously isn't. I understood what you were going at, right away, so I was able to elaborate your sentence(s).

__________
The 360 does contain better game, through the way I see it at the moment. The ps2 will always possess better games than the xbox... even if there weren't a new generation in the gaming world. Many of the 'better' gaming companies made games exclusive to the ps2 because it was more popular, around the world. More specifically, Japan, where most of the best games are produced. They know that they won't be getting much games from making it for xbox, exclusive or not. They felt that they would do better without the need to making it an xbox game and a ps2 game.

This time around, since gaming companies wanted to expand their games outside of Japan, and the 360 was, and are, rapidly growing more in popularity around the world, many companies decided that making 360 games would be more profitable. Making it an exclusive might some how do some good for them. I am not saying that just companies in Japan, companies in other countries too... if there are any besides Japan, America, and China.

In my opinion, it is a matter of popularity, price, and history. PSX came out without any real competition. So they had no trouble getting their consoles and games sold. Their popularity grew due to the fact that there weren't anything to compete with, discluding Nintendo. Game companies made games for PSX... Gee, I wonder why? When the ps2 and xbox came out, companies were still making games for the sony products because they had grown attached to it. Few companies went onto the Xbox and created games for it. Some games are, infact, better than the psX. Although, certain groups of people did not recognize that and/or had already bought a PS2. Many of the better games were set aside due to lack of recognition.

When the 360 and ps3 came out, the 360, I think, came out first, and it had a lower price and previous xbox owners were aware of the great games they had and took the risk of buying a 360. Many of the previous ps2 owners converted the 360 because of it's low price and the new games that instantly came out, causing and uproar in the game world. These 'new games' are not hard to notice. While the 360 had games that came out, almost instantly, the PS3 didn't have amazing games coming out until very late. The gamers had to make due and get their hands on the next generation's games so they don't fall behind. Popularity grew, because of this.

Game companies want profit, to make profit, they make what a lot of people want. A lot of people owns 360 so companies had to convert in order to make a better profit.

Now, I am not saying the 360 is better than the PS3, what I am saying is that greater games are recognized and there forth, has greater popularity. There is also the possibility that amazing games are unnoticed due to no recognition, as I have stated in the paragraph(s) about the xbox and ps2.

Everything I have written has the possibility of being flawed, I am not perfect, I don't keep myself up to date with game news. What I have written is what I believed/think has/are happened/happening.

Ummm... yay I am not the only confused one here. But I guess Saneless figured out this kid. Anyway, by the standards defined by Saneless. I guess that the 360 is the PS2 of this generation. But you need to keep in consideration that the fact that the 360 came out 2 years before the Wii and PS3. So the 360 should have more games then the newer systems.

I am finding that more developers are turning to the 360 because it is built on a familiar well documented architecture. The PS3 is built on an architecture that is experimental at best. So it is a lot hard to program for. And as for the Wii, well technically the Wii can be considered a No Gen system. Because nintendo could ride the Wii for the next 2 years or the next 50.

:P please keep in mind that the Wii has already out sold the 360, so techincally the 360 cannot be the PS2. Because the PS2 was the undisputed champion of the last generation of the console wars.

Yeah I've thought of those comparisons before...360/ps2 got a good head start on the others. But the real question is, why does it matter? Your money is still going to the same companies. Its not like YOU can win the console "wars" People emotional attachment to video game consoles can be pretty sad.

yeah me personally xbox 360 is dominating the market, with its kick ass games, while the ps3 is trying to catch up with there new exclusive games, and while the wii is still at the starting line trying to make a new game that dosent involve mario... seems like nintendo is gonna die out, but who know its just my opinon

well the 360 has more games cuz it came out earlier than the ps3 and ps3 games are harder to make cuz it has to be modified to blu ray

the 360 is dominating the market cuz its cheaper than the ps3
