    Mecheon does have a point. System Shock 2 was one of the most disturbing games I've ever played. So good. Scary good.

    And hopefully by now you realize the blue ray thing is obsolute to use in arguements in console wars >.> A long time ago Microsoft did announce if it came down to it, they can simply release a new disc drive that can play both blue ray and hddvd. Apparently they haven't gotten to the point were the needed to do so. And you have to remember, with there being more 360 owners then their are ps3 owners, there's alot more idiots who cram their 360s in tight spaces in their entertainment centers and what not. I had mine since Oblivion came out and never had to get a new one. Sure, I had 3 red lights and 4 red lights, but did that stop me at all? >.> I just let the lights flash till they went off and turned back on my 360. No problems at all. PS3 gamers are a dieing race where I live. It's like one odd guy gets a ps3 and then can't do anything with his friends. He then trades in his ps3 for a 360 and then he's in the crowd. I know of one person right now who owns a ps3 and all he uses it for is rock band ether way. And isn't much of a gamer at all. Millions of ps3 owners yet I can only find one in my area :p

    No blu-ray is a great point. Gives ps3 blu-ray potential.. meaning it can have awesome blu-ray games if a company wants to spend the money to make one, and there will be in future. Aswell as it increases sales... if a gamer wants a blu-ray player then they are most likely to buy a ps3... or even if anyone wants one. Though blu-ray isn't huge right now.. the increases of blu-ray players from 2007-2008 was a very very high % increase.. very high. I can't remember the exact amount. Aswell as more movies being put on blu-ray by the minute and prices starting to go down for the movies. There is no need for microsoft to make a blu-ray addon... as it will only be useful for blu-ray movies and not blu-ray games. Thus giving ps3 the blu-ray advantage... the only disadvantage with it is it makes the ps3 cost a fair bit more. I'm sure if microsoft made a blu-ray addon for blu-ray movies it would be overpriced like the 360 120gb hardrive when I can get a 500gb hardrive for my ps3 for the same price.

    Yep i'm not saying everyone gets RROD I know the chance isn't super high but it is a hell of a lot higher than the ps3's chance.

    Yeah good for you if you don't know someone who owns a ps3, I know quite a few.


    Wait for it....

    MASS EFFECT 2 ON PS3 - it's official baby. :) EA confirms multiplatform Mass Effect 2 and Battlefield: Bad Company sequel - Joystiq

    Now hopefully it shouldn't be long before gears of war 2 and fable 2 are announced for pc :) I almost bought a 360 for both of those.

    Ah, that's EA's fault. They always were a bunch of bastards. Bioware has always been Xbox/PC, with all of its games. There's no reason for that to change now besides the fact that EA is losing millions.

    Gears of War 2 for PC? I doubt it.
    Fable 2 is not that good. Like myself and brad stated about twenty or so times, it's a renter.

    PS3 users are lucky to get Mass Effect two, if it follows up 1 well, it should be a great game.
    I don't like the Battlefield series.

    Honestly, all games that should be released on the PS3 and 360. It can't be too hard to port from system to system. PC to console seems harder to me.

    Gilles, gears of war 1 and fable 1 were basically PC games... the console version of gears was good but didn't match the PC version I don't think. Fable 2 is almost a definately imo... fable 1 was a PC game... like what happens with quite a few of xbox exclusives.. xbox first then pc.

    Yeah brad.. I heard EA lost 650m. But guess what I think they have a bit more love for sony than microsoft. First of all they said they are making a command and conquer red alert 3 for ps3 which is going to be a lot more powerful and have more maps and goodies... they said that it has better graphics and stuff only because of blu-ray. And they are also making that big ass EA sports HOME space... which EA seem to be very happy about as they can do mass advertising in their massive space.

    EW, no. The Xbox version of Fable was SOSOSOSO much better than the PC version, it felt like it was designed for Xbox and then ported cheaply onto PC.

    Red Alert 3 blows. It's just nowhere near as good as the series in its name.

    Also, HOME, blech. Etc. Sony's just not for me.

    Yeah I don't usually like futuristic strategy games unless it's starcraft. Home is pretty cool, I usually play it when i'm bored of all my games, it has some fun mini games on it, though i've been reported 3 times for giving blowjobs to people. :) Oh about the fable thing... hah didn't know that, but i'm sure it sold a lot more on the PC version... gears 1 is better on PC I think? Probably i'd assume.

    Apparently I heard from my stupid friend that after EA finishes all games that are in development now they are not going to make anymore untill the economy crysis is over... but this guy also reckons that COD4 is the most fased pace intense shooter ever made. Lol to that. So i'm sure he's just a fucking idiot like always.

    :O I almost forgot I have PS3 the computer is soo much better than all of them combined (especially the Wii). Waiting for Twisted Metal, it will totally blow your mind away when it comes! Probably have physics where cars actually fly through the air as you launch them off a cliff with a missle blast (in other words better physics then just making the cars jump upward) :D

    I don't really care about what's under the hood of the PS3. It isn't really of much use since it drives the cost of the console up, while the cheaper Wii outsells it dramatically. Even the 360, with its beefy hardware, manages to sell more, because its hardware is used more effectively.

    If the potential of the PS3 could be properly tapped, maybe. But the hardware is ill-designed for games. Cell processing, floating points? That's for weird ass computational shit, not videogames.

    Oh i'm sure you will care, maybe not now but in the future when there are games on PS3 which are more powerful than killzone 2, and all the 360 can run is maybe something a little bit better than gears of war 2. PS3 is going to start pumping out more and more games which the 360 won't be able to run (kz2, uncharted2, heavy rain, gran t 5 and many more in future) while you are stuck with gears of war 2 graphics. I'm not saying gears of war 2 graphics are bad, but in a few years they wont be as good as they are now. But wait all i'm talking about is graphics aren't I... well don't forget to add in powerfuler games too. And while we are talking about hardware again... let me bring RROD back to the convo... yes... exactly.

    And all the ps3's hardware does jack up the price.. but wait. 360 console + wireless wifi (optional but lots of people like I need) + several years of xbox live + decent size hardrive which is way way overpriced compared to ps3 hardrives (optional, but again the 360 doesn't come with very much HD space unless you have an elite).

    So not only are they about equal price... but the ps3 is more powerfuler...and the 360 fails more... and there is the conclusion to hardware. Please if you think i'm wrong feel free to argue. So now the ps3 dominates hardware... that leads us to games. Which we have been talking about for weeks now. So right now the ps3 and 360 are fairly equal in games (of course arguable and depends what games you like)... and now in 09/010 the ps3 line up is much better too.

    Oh please correct me if i'm wrong about something... though i'm pretty sure i'm right.

    For someone like me, the wifi is meaningless since I'd rather have a good solid connection through a cable. I'll save my $100 thanks.

    In my experience, X-Box live is better. I personally would rather have free online, but that's only because I'd rarely use it. The payments are, in my estimation, worth it.

    The PS3 is more powerful, but at this time, looking at the games now, I'd rather save my money and not pay for graphics and processor.

    The blue-ray is pointless for me since I don't have an HDTV, and besides, I'd rather get one for my computer to burn discs. Internal blue-ray should come down to $100 soon enough.

    The HDD on the 360 is fine. I don't need 120, 60 is plenty.


    Overall, the PS3 is "better", but costs more. In a lot of peoples opinions, it's not worth the price.

    LOL NINJA. Are you talking about ps3? You said your one died after 3 years... the ps3 has barely been out 2 years.. it's only been out 2 years in america and japan. Lol you fail so hard man ... lol. But yeah good to see some more people joining in, thanks buddy :)

    @gilles Yep fair enough you don't need wireless, I certainly do as my router is like 15 meters away from my console. About the harddrive... only the newer models have 60gb, unless you bought your console before like what... september.. then you would only have 20gb which can fit bugger all and almost forced to upgrade. Then xbox live... what is it like $50 or $60 usd a year? Yeah well what if you play for 4 years of xbox live which i'm sure people do that is over $200! So add that onto your console cost ... 200 + 200 = 400 the ps3 cost... but the price cut wasn't released too long ago.. so most people would of payed like.. how much again.. $300? I'm sure some people would even play more than 4 years online on their console, I know I would. So it can actually add up to cost more than the ps3 with live alone.. play for 4 years and you've got about the ps3 price. Then + wifi and/or hardrive... well then you're screwed and ripped off by microsoft once again.

    So yeah the price is roughly equal, depending on what you need for ur xbox. Then... your disc scratching... well i'm sure this rarely happens anymore but you gotta buy the game again. Then RROD... I don't know how much it costs to fix your xbox out of warranty. So you are paying as much or even more for something which is quite weaker. Like said before this is how ps3 dominates in hardware. Anyway i'm sure i'm repeating quite a lot.

    Now onto games... like said before future games will only be runnable on ps3... by that I mean more powerfuler games will only be able to run on ps3 and not 360 unless the game has graphics = to or lower than gears of war 2ish.

    Now you decide games... depends what you like. Halo and MGS4 aren't for everyone, but some people like them. I'd still say little big planet is and will always be the funnest game of all time... i've played like all the wii games and lbp just makes them look boring. But then there is gears of war 2, but that should be on PC sometime I think/hope. The current exclusive list is very arguable... though looking at 09/010 list I think the ps3 will slide infront and will start getting more and more powerfuler games and more sequels to ps2 exclusives which are starting to come in now and now that sony are starting to get profit it should start getting more exclusives I think (my guess) and more stuff. Geez i'm starting to talk more opinion than fact here lol. But anyway can we stay off hardware, unless you want me to prove even more why the ps3 wins that category.

    No way, console shooters give guys like me a chance.
