Still not convinced.
A good friend once told me you are memory,
without them we equal nothing.
Those are good reasons to get a PS3, but not to skip over the 360 entirely...
[CENTER][B][SIZE=1]Girl, just call me the gamec[COLOR=Black]o[/COLOR]ck, because when you beat it on hard, you get the special ending.
They call her a ho, and you hope to god it was true...
'Cause see, a ho f*cks everybody... And a b[COLOR=Black]i[/COLOR]tch f*cks everybody but you.
to me the 360's graphics arent all next gen if you ask me, sure it looks pretty, but when i was trying out, i think call of duty, something with natzis
umm their were line distortions, one whole edge of the building wasn't perfectlly curved, it looked like something done straight out of paint.
Im defanitly skiping over this sorry to say next gen console, and saving my $500 for the Playstaion 3, because overall it has the whole futrure at its feet, 120 frps, dual 1080i blueray disk player, loads of media, intergration with the psp, eye toy 2(very awsome demenstraion if i might add)
All of this and then you add on must have games that are exclussives to the playstaion family like grand tourismo, Metal Gear 4, Tekken, Guild Gears, and a couple others.
Overall Playstion 3 it the ideal next gen in terms of technology
In revolutionary standards the Nintendo Revolution is leading that spot with is massive backward compatibility, extra small console, and unique controler
To me all i see the Xbox 360 doing right is the MMO in their games, and im not really interested playing with hundereds of live people.
Go PS3 and NR, KILL THE 360 MUHAHAHA :twisted: :twisted:
here are reasons summerized
Reason #10: Xbox 360 Doesn't Have a Killer App
Reason #9: Dual-Screen and 1080p Support
Reason #8: Hefty Expandability / Connectivity Options
Reason #7: You Can Still Pre-Order
Reason #6: Seven-Player Wireless Support
Reason #5: The HD IP Camera
Reason #4: Full Backwards Compatibility
Reason #3: Stronger Japanese Developer Support
Reason #2: Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
Reason #1: The Blu-ray Player

Thanks for the Sig and Ava STB!!
Why must so many people have to pick one side or the other. Any REAL gamer would own both, plus a Nintendo Revolution on the side.
I agree with number ten, Im checking out upcoming games and dont know or like any of them. Plus the graphics dont look as amazing as I thought, looks simular to the regular xbox.

I agree...sort of. Most of us can't afford all 3 systems but it's still a nice thought to have all the next-gen systemsOriginally Posted by MMMMMike
Yeah but the original X-box was an amazingly powerful systm in itself. From what I hear the X-box 360 is 80 times more powerful than the X-box when all of it is used which hasn't happened yet. I don't care about the graphics as much. So what if one is slightly better than the other. Look at the ps2 and the X-box. The PS2 sells better why? Cause it has been out longer and has more games. It doesn't have better graphics or anything but still it outsold the X-box.
Now here's round two of the Console wars between Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft. Microsoft is coming out first now and gaining an upper hand. But Sony's is coming out later with slightly better graphics...Hmm, where have I heard this before?
I bought a PS2 first because it was the first next-gen console, then the X-box and later the Gamecube. Now I'm going with the 360 and probably the PS3 at a much later time. See the patterns guys? This is going to be a war to remember.
And whats with you ps3 fanboys saying the X-box 360 doesn't have a killer app? Haven't you heard of Perfect Dark Zero? There's one for the books. Yeah some of these games (Tony Hawk's American Wasteland, Gun, NFS: Most Wanted) in my opinion should have stayed with the current consoles. The 360 should have different games than our old-gen systems.
P.S. Can't wait for Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. No more lame combat! YES! :Jump:

The core speed on the ATI card is 500mhz, the nVidia is 550 mhz. Though the ATI card has more pipelines if I recall correctly so which would mean they will never seem so much better than either one. 120 FPS? The human eye only sees about 30 FPS, what good is 120 FPS going to do you? Do you have TWO 1080i compatible TVs? And If so do you plan to connect the PS3 to BOTH of them?? Blue ray wont be taking DVD over this gen so thats neither here nor there, plus it still must beat HD DVD which it hasn't yet. And almost every game you listed there has a counter.
Grand Turismo? PGR 3
Tekken? Dead or Alive 4
MGS 4 =? to SC4, no one knows yet.
final Fantasies? Blue Dragon, Lost odyssey, enchant aRM.
No idea what guild gears is.
So your entire argument can be flipped against you its opinion, when will you people learn this.
No not really, Never heard of prefect dark zero. Tony hawk is ok but not that great, Never heard of Guns, and NFS is lame.Originally Posted by BrokenWing

This is useless... The Sony fans will get the PS3, the Microsoft fans will get the 360, the rich people will get both, and the smarter poor people will get the cheaper one (360). 'Nuff said.
buying a system is like buying any other electronics, like buying a camera, u dont c people buying hole deferent cameras, they buy the ones with the best, quality of the pictures that it can take then its the features, y would u buy somthing that cant last long, like sonys products they think in the future, one electronics, can be used many years, yeah, i bet some will say sonys stuf brakes easly, but that is not my point, like the ps3, there are far more things on there that we dont need on it, it is because future technlolgy will support it, use for many years like 20 years, and xbox360 is like a one time use tanpon, only X for NO, Box, cause its going to be throne in the box, 360, 3 years and 60 days of use, ( i was going to say 3 minits and 60 seconds but xbox360 is not that bad, graphics r prity cool, saw it at walmart, but not wat i expected, not next-gen), and ps3s graphic card, is not good by itself, its the combination with the CELL that makes the graphic card go its fullest.

the bluray is teh bookies favuorite to win btw.
project gotham isnt nearly gran turismo....it doent even come clos to it. gran turismo has small cars , low powered cars , saloons, hatchbacks as well as sports cars and supercars. PGR is just like every other racing game...it has limited depth when u compare the two. Gran turismo is QUALITY thru and thru.
I cant believe u would try and compare splinter cell to metal gear ..... im just gpoing t laugh at you...hahahahhaha ahahhaha hahahhahahah
Can I join in? :Jump: ... Oh and btw, imo DOA is pretty stupid. I had the 2nd one on ps2, got bored of it pretty fast. Played the new one on 360...felt the same. DOA doesn´t even come close to Tekken.Originally Posted by sinjinn
hahaha one time only use tampon...i honestly can say ive never heard that said before lol.Originally Posted by legion_chaos
Um...are you for real? DOA is much better than Tekken. I used to like Tekken but after I bought DOA 3 and Ultimate I realized which was the better choice.Originally Posted by Hmm
It was like Tekken was a hamburger but never got past being a deluxe hamburger. DOA was A Hamburger with french fries (French fries being big bouncing breasted women of course ) and evolved into a deluxe cheeseburger with a super sized Fry and drink. (Heck if someone can compare the 360 to a tampon then I can compare games to fast food burgers right?)
I particularly enjoyed IGN's subtitle for this article because it's so true.
PS3 vs. Xbox 360
FEATURE: An article designed to rile up Xbox fans. Betcha it works
yeah! tekken sucks which is why ps2 got the weakest version of soul caliber 2Originally Posted by BrokenWing
[FONT="Century Gothic"][CENTER][COLOR="DarkRed"]Final Fantasy XI[/COLOR] (PC and PS3/2)[/CENTER] [/FONT]
[FONT="Century Gothic"][CENTER][COLOR="Red"]Castlevania The Dracula X chronicles[/COLOR] (PSP)[/CENTER][/FONT]
#4 and #2 are the best reasons on there :)
DMC4 should be the #3.5 reason lol
Then why did PS2 get the ONLY version of Soul Calibur 3?Originally Posted by firstname.lastname@example.org
Doa is a beautiful game. Pretty much the best graphics around (though the last trailer I saw for the new one STILL had girls' hair disappearing into their sholders-it's next gen; can't we fix that yet?). Gameplay-wise, though, I find it lacking. And aside from the ninjas, the characters are kind of generic and boring. I'll take Jin Kazama over... um... who's the main character in Doa? Kasumi is the favorite, but who's the important one? Hayate? I'll take Jin over Hayate. Still, Tekken hasn't made a major evolutionary leap since Tekken 3, and that was all the way back in the PS1 days. It's better than Doa, but it's still getting stale. Hopefully the next one will bring something new... something besides sweat running down Jin's face.
MGS vs. SC? Does that even justify an arguement? Ok, SC is better as a stealth game and it's much more realistic. The funny thing is MGS invented the stealth genre but it breaks away from it more than all the other stealth games. That's what makes it so much fun. And where is SC's answer to Psycho Mantis? Or Vulcan Raven? A Sniper dual with The End? Now that's a cool boss fight! And what game is Xbox offering that can compete with the story of MGS:3. SC does one aspect of the game better (and even that's open to debate--SC can get tedious and/or repetitive at times) but that doesn't make it a worthy contender to the whole package of what MGS is.
Gran Turismo vs. Project Gotham? That one's pretty much been argued adequately. You should've said Forza. It's a closer match to GT than PGR.
Lastly, all the Sony fanboys really should shut up about Killzone. It's not as good as Halo and it very likely won't be in the next gen, either. Seriously, if you want FPS's get a 360. If you want the best games in all the other genres get a PS3.
Overall I think sony's system is better but its too far away , thats why im egtting a 360 in about 9 days with halo 2 and ninja gaiden.
also , i want to get into multiplayer games, i havnt played any, at all...ever...so, thats going to be good. and the price isnt bad either...40 pounds i think...
the thing about the metal gear franchise is that theres always an incentive to go on...the story is grrrrrrreat....the cut scenes are always aplenty and the game doesnt focus on one particular style like othr games do. theres always a certain way to kill a boss...and every boss is unique.if anyones played mgs 3 you'll know what i mean .i mean 'the edge'....i didnt have a sniper rifle and i spent maybe 6 hours or more just sneaking and crawling thru the grass to get to him ..and most times i pushed the joystick too much and he heard and ran....and then he'd be around somewhere close but i couldnt see him...n maybe he hit me again....or maybe i stood in the wrong place and could see snake thru 'the edge's' sniper rifle....thats priceless stuff. or in MGS 2 when you're in the 'rectum' of the metal gear and u r fighting and suddenly the 'game over' screen comes on and u think 'eh???' and u give up ...and then u play again n it happns again but u realise its just the storyline ****ing with you just like in the first MGS where the ninja dude is in the office asking u t tap the joypad....making u aware that u r actually playing a game....its priceless. no other game is quite as compelling...except halo...that was cool. the only thing i dont like about MGS is the soemtimes creepy and gay innotations it makes.
buy a better video card and Battle Field 2 with a headset.. and then and only then will u see true mutliplayer crazy action..

This may be strictly true, but higher FPS will make a large difference in the picture.120 FPS? The human eye only sees about 30 FPS, what good is 120 FPS going to do you?
"How many frames per second can the human eye see?
This is a tricky question. And much confusion about it is related to the fact, that this question is NOT the same as:
How many frames per second do I have to have to make motions look fluid?
And it's not the same as
How many frames per second makes the movie stop flickering?
And it's not the same as
What is the shortest frame a human eye would notice?"
And seriously how can you compare the graphics between a system thats still a year away and one thats already out?"
It also looks like the 360 isn't completly stable... http://www.kotaku.com/gaming/xbox-36...mad-138978.php
and thats not the first time I've heard of it crashing and its really not that old at this point.

OK, like mentioned before, i dont know what kind of crap some of you Xbox fans are smoking, but hell, PGR will NEVER compare to Gran Turismo..just, NEVER. Forza maybe, it was a good game just like GT4 was. Now, seriously, i think the only reason ppl are going for an xbox 360 at the time its cause its "new". Just like a lot of ppl with the PSP when it came out. Its new, so it must be good. Lies.
In reality, Halo 2 is a CRAP FPS. If you really want a good first person shooter, get Half Life 2. Seirously, i dont know why the hell people think halo 2 is good...it SUCKS! My repects to Bungie though, any game developer deserves merit for what they do, but to say Halo 2 is great is like saying Michael Jackson was innocent....its just not true. Killzone might not be the greatest, but neither is Halo.
Now, someone made a comparison about some Xbox "RPG's" to Final Fantasy. Again, I dont know on what kind of drug you are on, but no Xbox RPG can compare to such a franchise. FF could be the 2nd or 3rd biggest franchise in Video Game history(with Mario being first, and Zelda competing for second). There is nothign that Microsoft can pull that will ever match the power of Final Fantasy(and, IF, and only IF, Square decides to remake Final fantasy VII, Xbox 360 will never stand a chance...not even with what ppl claim a good RPG Fable).
As for Metal Gear and Splinter Cell, i wouldnt know because i stopped playing Splinter Cell since like part 1...so i cant compare the MGS3 to the newest splinter cell.
In the end, people will get what they want, period. Personaly, i am going for PS3 and Revolution UNTILL I see a good game comming to Xbox 360(sure, oblivion looks great, but i can always play that on PC). I have seen Xbox 360, I have played Xbox 360, and there is really nothing that makes me want to get it...NOTHING.
