Absolutely not.

The Wii is something on it's own with pure innovation. Unfortunately, that kind of innovation sucks, and is only innovative for people who don't play videogames.

As for the 360; no way in f**king hell is is ANYTHING like the PS2. The PS2's game library was HUUGE, and the sale's rates of the PS2 is kinda of more similiar to the PS3 [expect the PS3's is alot sllooweer]. In terms of actual sales numbers, the Wii is closest to the PS2. Only thing the 360 has got in common with the PS2 is that it's cheaper, therefore seeming more practical to purchase. The 360 is also more popular for other things, such as XBL, and making FPS games appeal on consoles. This can count as something different from the PS2. Also JRPGs are dying - the PS2 & PS1 was full of JRPG life. Another difference, there.

Now, the PS3 has boasted more about the console itself rather than the exclusive titles they have been recieving. Now, this is alright, but it kinda means the PS3 lost alot of on appeal compared to the 360 [seperating alot of loyalists to the conformists]. Microsoft have seemingly put more effort into letting everyone know their positives [including bitching on competition], but hey, advetising is all part of business, right? [That's where I won't bend over and take Microdick].

Yes people, the PS3 actually has very decent bundle of exclusives as well, you know. Too bad, to even figure out about these games, I actually had to do some research. So yes, Sony's advertising sucks. And because most of the population is too half-assed to figure shit out, it leads back to my point of preferring a console which seems more user friendly and is more practical to purchase. Examples:
-The 360 was released first
-The 360 seems alot cheaper
-The 360 is advertised ALOT
-Word of Mouth
-Also people tend to look at price tags and have a judgement from that point...

Basically, they are all NOT the same to the last generation. With huge concentration on online play, Online media, Hi-Definition EVERYTHING, motion controls, struggle for 3rd party developers, this is a completely different & new situation.


I sort of agree with you. I see ads for 360 much more then for the PS3. Also I want more JRPG to start coming out. Anyway, I"m thinking right now about getting a 360 Elite after the price drop to 300 dollars August 30th, but thinking about it what games would I get for it? Sure there is Halo 3, but it's not really worth buying a 360 just for two or three games.

Let me make a list of games I want to get for what system if I had both the 360 and PS3 right now. =p

360:
Halo 3
Star Ocean Last Hope

PS3:
Final Fantasy XIII (Was originally one of the reasons for my PS3, and I want less disc)
Final Fantasy Versus XIII
Final Fantasy XIV (Kinda, sorta... I just want to try it out.
White Knight Chonoicles
Assassins Creed 2 (Already Per-Ordered it for the PS3)
Modern Warfare 2 (Most of my friends will be getting it for PS3)

Either:
Tales of Vesperia (If there is a US release I'll get the PS3 one for the extras)
Resonance of Fate

My choices may actually differ from the above if I really had a 360 and because I've had my PS3 for a year now, but I don't see much of a change happening if i tried to view it some other way.

Right now I'm looking for a game with believable Fantasy (graphics), and intense game play like Baten Kaitos. Now that game was beautiful for it's time and it was so intense in battle that after a few hours I'd have a headache from all the strategy I did. I couldn't fall asleep if I wanted to playing that game unlike most games coming out recently. If someone finds a good game like that please mention it.

Whichever system comes out with a exclusive game like that, and I find it first may end up being the best system in my book. Even if it was the Wii, which I have only played about five times in the past year or well ever...

let the fanboys go nuts on me
on topic:i would'nt say it is the 360 is ps2 of the gen but more of the wii since the system sells well its just the games dont sell well on it
and the ps3 ant like the orignal xbox since it at least arealdy made more then twice the units sold for it(then againg even the gameboy color sold better then the xbox)
edit: i forgot to say this too, the wii is not a real gaming system, its a toy
Posted 8/16/09
360 FTW!
Posted 8/16/09
No 360 is a next gen console, PS2 isn't...I think some of the best games ever made were for PS2 anyway. I just bought 360 for the online experience.

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 am on the wii part. by far the best of the 3 is the wii, the revolutionary gameplay, the whole concept of bringing a family together to play while still having kick ass games is by far the best intentions i have seen from any of the consoles, ever. (i am saying back to atari and before).

The graphics fall short of the other two, but for 39.99 a game and 250 dollars for the console, that is how much i payed when it came out (taxed included, american) there is no beating it.

It outsold xbox and ps3 in console sales and revenue. To me that is success speaking on it's own.


The only people that really bad mouth the wii are those that THINK they are too old to play kiddie games. Which let me tell you, you are never too old.

based on game library i would say yes. however the one thing the 360 lacks compared to the PS2 is total domination of its generation. the wii is ahead in sales over the 360 and by a lot. the PS2 in it's generation was by far the best seller.

I'd personally think I'd rather play PC games than xBox 360 since... Why point guns with a giant cursor when you can click pixel by pixel on a computer =/

Halo is gay.
Fuck off.
Haze and resistance way better.
Gears of war can hold its own.
