but mine broke about a year ago and got replaced. Good times.
The Snes beat the crap outa the Mega drive.
seeing PS3 has no decent exclusives right now and terrible games libary.
See: Screwattacks 10 ps3 exclusives
but it'll get better, and has a built in blu ray player. also free online gaming, unlike xbox360, which you pay for yearly as far as I know.
but what else is there?
anyone that uses it will agree
I want a console
Mostly solo gaming, but some multi-player fun
I like huge expansive open-ended games
A fucking great/realistic footie game is essential
I hate FPS
Realism > Cartoons
What do I buy?
The Wii will date quickly and there are so many good games coming out on ps3 and xbox. And seeing as xbox is cheaper, it's fairly easy to work out which one wins.
Sounds like you want a ps3. I'll try and find the article, but what you described was basically what some guy said the ps3 would be good for. The xbox was better for fps stuff like halo. and anyway. ps3 will have final fantasy!
If so... great!
FF and MGS4 will do me just fine from now until forever
i found this pretty convincing, especially the online thing. But rather than which is better blah blah blah, it just depends what kind of games you prefer..
many developers are being pissed off with Sony, hense why so many exclusives are dropping out. EA are having troubles progressing with the system, amongst others... PS3 have increased in sales by 300% recently but are still far behind in 3rd place... it has only JUST gone ahead of the PS2 and Xbox in sales.
ones? I don't think thats really true, and anyway, the sales are going to be lower, cause its more expensive.
Like that article says, it is more difficult to program on, but in the long term the games will be much better than what the xbox can pull off.
But as I said, it's about what games you're into. So whatever. I can't afford either anyway!
I haven't seen that before. Looks incredible. Must be saving for a ps3 now.
and my advice would be: dont buy one
dont be swayed by the 'BUT OMG ITS THE MOST POWERFUL!??!?!!'
who cares, it doesnt have the games to back it up.
get a 360.
the xbox360s been out for a year longer..
so, more games! soon!
beats them all simply because it mas Mario Galaxy
seriously the best game in at least 10 years, maybe even longer.
but then there's not a huge sleection of great games (though this seems to be changing), and there's some things it can't (or just isn't designed) to do.
so then i'd go for a 360, maybe if they price was equal i'd think about the ps3, but as it is, there's no contest.
i'll porbably get a ps3, but xbox 360 is brilliant as well. im getting a ps3 mainly for call of duty 4 and the orange box, oh and killzone 2
both on Xbox360 as well though O_o
then you have to pay to play em online! that is not funny.
Im not a serious gamer and perfer the wii as I like to just be able to get straight to the games and wave a stick about.... but I have used PS3 online... its pretty simple & just standard online play.
Xbox Live is much more involving and inviting... it has so much more to it then just Online play.
do you have any of those free Macy's gist vouchers?
