    lol @ kyotokid’s gif.

    Wow, get a non-technical person to try and understand that sentence, lol.
    Personally, I’m a sony whore. I found the 360 predictably underwhelming, and am shivering with excitement about the PS3.
    While I find the Wtf (my own personal-use name for the Wii) interesting and chuckle-worthy, I’m reserving my flash judgements until we have more than, well, Flash to go on.

    The drives are region free but you still have issues with the power supply and what not to worry about. If you’re buying first generation hardware I’d buy in your own country incase there are any technical problems. The cost of sending it back to the US would surely out weigh any savings.

    Not exactly, the 360 is 200 quid less and will probably be even cheaper by the time the PS3 is released. :P

    I take your point though. At the end of the day though, I would rather spend 2000 on a top spec PC then have to fork out the same or more on a new console and a TV that can play it to its full potential. I think HD still hasn’t got the market penetration to make it a big thing for this generation.

    But considering if you were to get a BluRay drive for that computer you’re looking at a cool grand. I still hold that for all the hardware going into the thing its not that bad a price. Still wish they had of left theHDMI/USB/ethernet ports alone. I’ll be getting a Wii and possibly a PS3 depending on my standing come November.

    reckon ps3 considering the hardware in it isnt such a bad price, sure its expensive but what do you expect for a cutting edge processor, a brand new disc format. Look at it this way a blu-ray drive will prob be around the same price if not more by the time the ps3 is out. So for that price your getting a ps3 for free :)

    Reckon ill purchase a ps3 and wii from day 1 if i can get one.

    I think the Wii could really get Nintendo back on top this generation. I’ve had a PS2 and to be honest im just tired of playing the same old thing again and again. It has some original games alright but most of its best games are sequals to games ive been playing for the past 7-8 years. I bought a DS a month ago and im hooked on Nintendogs in a way that hasnt happened for a long time.

    I reckon there wont be much of a difference between owning a ps3 or 360 this time around except for the odd exclusive title. The only major difference is the ps3 controller which could be interesting alright.

    I’m rather surprised people are defending Sony after this years E3. I mean in all honestly they completely dropped the ball this year, and thats saying it politely. The vast majority of their trailers were either pre-rendered, multi-platform or bog standard hack and slash titles. In my opinion, in terms of consoles anyway, MS and Nintendo came up trumps this year and hammered Sony in terms of their showings.

    Even some of my Sony fanboi friends were completely stumped.

    Simon: So what were you’re favourite parts of the the Sony conference.
    Friend: MGS4, Final Fantasy XIII and Eight Days. Oh and Assassin’s Creed…
    Simon: You do realise that the MGS4 was all pre-rendered, there was little to no info on the second and Eight Days was all pre-rendered too? Oh and Assassin’s Creed will probably be on the XBox360 too.
    Friend: But…*goes silent*

    Oh man…
    I dunno how I’m going to finance my Playstation requirement (yes, that says requirement, so shoot me).

    This generation is just too damned expensive! I know plenty of people who want a HDTV for their 360, but it just costs too much. Maybe Sony were counting on Microsoft accruing a negative image on the HD issue, but if that was the case, they should have held off on announcing the pricepoint for longer, just so that the HDTV-Xbox association could be cemented before everyone went “$600!!”.

    That of course means that Sony would have to assume that everyone who buys a PS3 already has a 360, which is an unhealthy assumption anyway.

    I guess it boils down to that timeless question:
    WTF are they thinking?!

    I don’t get you. The more expensive Playstation 3 is also HD and they’ve made a far bigger fuss about it so why would you think that they were waiting for MS to get negative press about it? :?

    Because MS were first.
    I figure they were in a meeting last year and said:
    Well, the Xbox’ll be out first. But if we let them push HD, then people will be more accustomed to the idea and rollout will be higher. Then we can come along with our expensive machine and not look so bad.

  • #31551

    Ah…

    The only problem in so far as I can see is that Sony made a much bigger deal of HD before MS did regardless of when their console was coming out, hence negating that advantage. Anyway, its going to be a long time befroe HD TVs are mainstream so I don’t think its something MS are worrying about in the short term.

    Indeed, playing this short demo I was amazed by just how disillusioned I’ve become. Having already played through and completed Zelda 64 and The Wind Waker, I can only hope the game offers at least something more than the tired mechanic of going to a dungeon, finding an item in the dungeon that is critical to beating that very dungeon, and then killing the boss with that item too. Repeatedly. Twilight Princess is really going to have to offer something more, and using the Wii controller in such a predictable way isn’t going to cut it.[/quote:5de69b57ad]
