hmm hee hee hee? Sounds exciting. I think PS3 will beat Xbox 360 at launch but ultimately the 360 will win the battle until the 540 comes out.
Hehehe 540, that would be funny.....
Xbox is a stupid concept, all it is is microsoft wanting more money and trying to steal it from young and stupid people.
Microsoft were so desparate to make money that they asked rockstar to make that next GTA an XBOX exclusive game. But the thing was that Microsoft couldn't pay rockstar enough money because the PS3 will make too much money from GTA.
Xbox only got the other GTA's because rockstar thought it might make a bit of extra mula, but it just turned out to be a dumb idea because Xbox are shit.
That little rant wasn't pointed at you morfias, just the thing you said about the 540 was.....they haven't even brought out an Xbox 2 and they are already going for number 540!!!! lol
first the reson they had 360 is because they didnt like calling it xbox 2, it doesnt sound as good, and they arent crap and where did u hear about rockstar getting paid for gta to be on xbox? i think 360 will be way better then ps3
The Xbox 360 has a solid lead so far, and I think they will keep that lead (not by much) until the next generation. There will be no blow out victory for either one. I think the machine everyone is forgetting about is the Wii. I think the Wii will have numerous sales as well, perhaps even as many as the PS3. Remember, there are a lot of Nintendo enthusiasts out there.
i don't know which one is going to be better but when i think of xbox i think of halo and when i think of playstation i think of final fantasy/tekken so it usually come down to what games i want to play more
Xbox 360 will take this year cause has about 110 games and some of them are freakin awsome (Gears of War). Ps3 will come about next year around may and pown Wii and Xbox with awsome games. The games on Ps3 will have the best graphics Ex. Resistance Fall of man for Ps3 looks very good and it is not even in high deff.
I played full auto at eb games for about an hour and it was pretty insane if i do say so myslef. You should save up your almost there, sell your old consoles man! sell your bed! sell your cloths! Whatever it takes to get your hands on one! lol jk dont sell ur bed.
only way ill get a ps3 is if they introduce a remake or sequel to the FF7 game. i fell in love with it, and i would be willing to pay $400-$500 for the mere console for that game. anything else would be a plus. however, i think ill let the prices fall a bit before i attempt it, since a FF7 might never come out. i think that PS3 is way too expensive for anything else. get a 360, or wait for microsoft to introduce something next year or the next that will leave the PS3 in the dust. after all, microsoft does have about a year and a half of leverage over sony, and they have the power to beat this new competition next year.
fact is, that sony is losing the battle. they promised something two years ago at e3, and didnt deliver until this november. microsoft promised something at the same time, and we got that last year. a year of owning the market has given microsoft the power and funds to start their new project. maybe we'll get that about the time that sony announces their next thing.
this is a long rant about how microsoft is better than sony. thank you for your time.
FF7 will come out, that is also a big reason why I will buy PS3. I have never played it, but everybody keeps repeating that it is so good, so I just have to try it.
I don't think Microsoft is better than Sony. What the PS3 needs right now are some strong titles to come out for it. Just having some sports and racing games aren't gonna make it popular, it needs some of it's heavy games, like Final Fantasy. Then it will begin.
PlugY for Diablo II allows you to reset skills and stats, transfer items between characters in singleplayer, obtain all ladder runewords and do all Uberquests while offline. It is the only way to do all of the above. Please use it.

Sony is definately relying heavily on the PS3 to revive them. They've had a lot of setbacks of late; the debacle of the 9.6 million laptop batteries that had to be recalled, the delay of their Blu-ray technology due to component shortages, and their recent formidable competition from Samsung, their South Korean Rival.
There's a few main things that Sony is hoping the PS3 will acheive, one is to maintain their dominance in the gaming industry (I was not aware they so dominated it to begin with), second, is to establish the market for its Blu-ray technology(as it is in direct competition with HD-DVD format, and to demonstrate that Sony's new executive Howard Stringer can turn things around.
The PS3 will not do as well as its predecessor for several reasons. When the PS2 came out, it did not face the competition it is now. With the 360 fairly well established and the Wii just being released, it will be unable to attain its marketshare that the PS2 did.
The other main obstacle for the PS3 is its price. Maybe it's just because I'm not as willing to invest as much in gaming as I used to, but I think it's too expensive for what you get, with the rudimentary configuration being as high as 500. I'll admit the Blu-ray does sound intriguing, but it is also responsible for its high cost and has been way too hobbled due to its delays.
The difference in video formats may not even matter in the long run. But no matter how you look at it, Sony has lost a lot of ground with the gaming market.
On a more personal level, I was never a huge fan of the Playstation. It may be that I simply never found the right games to enjoy. I never cared for Grand Theft Auto, or any of the Final Fantasy games (I'm sorry, but Final Fantasy just makes me constipated). My favorite game the first Playstation had was actually Twisted Metal 2 and Resident Evil 2.
The debate between PS3 and 360 and it's possible third party candidate, the Wii, kind of seems asinine to me. As it really boils down to personal tastes and finances. For my personal tastes, I love games like Halo, Doom 3, Morrowind, Oblivion, even Fable which failed to deliver most of what it promised, but was still a fun game nonetheless. In finance terms, yes you pay a subscription fee to Xbox live (I didn't know till I read one of these posts that the PS3 online was free), but you do get a lot of great downloadable content with Xbox live in addition to just playing online with other people. I did find it gay, however, how 360's first configuration didn't even include a harddrive or even a 20 meg memory unit. I was foolish to buy just the standard version first and then gradually upgrade, but what are you gonna do.
The reason I tend to think of the Wii akin to a third party candidate, is that it doesn't seem as much in direct competition with the former two, since it is being marketed more to a generalized gaming audience and to those who don't normally play video games.
Anyway, I think it's unfair to say one sucks over the other. It just depends on your style of gaming and whichever suits you better. And if it's all those consoles, and you can afford that, then um, I guess that just means you're well off.
Personally, I wish more than anything right now I could upgrade my computer and check out some new games I've been wanting to play.
