I would, if I had that sorta money, but I'll probably have to wait more than year before I get mine unfortunately

Not yet. I'll wait and see how it pans out. The 360 seems to be getting most of the 'exclusives' anyway. Devil may cry went multi platform, MGS4 and FFXIII are rumoured to be because of costs. I don't own a 360 but my brother does. It seems to be more geared towards hardcore gamers. I have a Wii only for the nintendo shit.

But yeah, the PS3 does really make me wanna rush out and buy it right now. The only reason I got a Wii at launch was for Zelda. I should have waited a year or two. I'm never gonna buy a console at launch ever again.

Pisses me off, as soon as a console is cheap enough for me to afford the bring out a new one and dont make games for the old one anymore. Bastards.

Some people can be so immature.

I'll get it when I feel like it. There's certainly better games out for it (May I say Virtua Fighter 5?). Obviously I'm not gonna spend it all on the PS3, right now.

Oh and I heard they're releasing a new version of Xbox360 that has an HDMI and better hard drive. It's probably gonna cost just as much as the Playstation.

the 360 has HD output anyway?

Yup, thats true. It has a 120gb hard drive and I thinks its in a black casing. And yeah, the pricing is virtually the same as the PS3. I think the original already had high definition support.

K, anymore silly immature posts in this thread and you'll regret it.


As for the PS3, I plan to trade in my 360 (it's okay, but it's been below my already low expectations) and all the games with it, which should mean that I only pay half price for the PS3. I'm too much of a MGS fanboy not to buy the machine.

I think the PS3 is junk imo. I gotta get Halo 3, Gears of War 2, Assasins Creed, Grand Theft Auto 4, Forza 2 perhaps?

so imo 360 is much better..

the new 360 that is "supposed" to come out will be "$480" M$ has said NOTHING about this console so it may just be an april fools joke..

at some PS3 launch party in Paris i believe...there was a big body of water next to it and a huge ship had a giant banner that read "Xbox 360 <3 you" on the side as it floated by the event...and that made more news than the launch event did.

The 'immature' posts things extends to any name calling/bashing of the ps3 or 360. Just play nice people.

I was stating my opinion.

well no I wont be getting one since I live in the US.

and I can't possibly afford it. haha...I need to get a car.

-After reading alot of reviews and specs on the PS3, I find it to be a waste of money. The pricing on it, if I'm not mistaken it's twice as high as for an Xbox and Sony justifies the pricing by telling people how much a standalone blueray-player costs, atleast according to the newsarticle.

I've also read articles stating that due to expences building that device, Sony has had to cut down on the quality of their product (atleast for the european version). They have removed the shocker from the controll and alot of games won't work properly.

It never had rumble to begin with. They had a lawsuit with someone which prevented it being implemented. They will probably release a new controller later because I think they got it sorted out. And yes, they removed the hardware that allows it to play PS2. Its all done by software updates now. Roughly 70% of the PS2 games actually work after updating your system, apparently.

No, but one of my friends bought one today. I'm going round his house tomorrow and we're gonna waste away the day like the cool kids we are!
#25
I believe that Sony have finally dug their own grave, so I won't be buying one. I hope Nintendo and all the other people they ripped off sue them.
#26
I'm not buying any of these consoles until either Metal Gear Solid 4 or Final Fantasy XIII come out.

At the moment, it looks like both of those games are PS3 exclusive (there have been rumours here and there but I doubt it), so I'll me getting me a PS3 next year, and it'll be way cheaper by that time anyway.

As much of a PS fanboy as I am... the PS3 has absolutely NO good games, what is it.. 6 months after launch in the US?

The thing that made PS2 so great was the great selection of games on it. The PS3 is going to either need a bunch of good titles fast or it's going to die and sony's going to become the next sega.
#28
No, Ive pretty much given up video gaming, I got a Wii which is fun and if i find myself raking it in I might consider a 360 but the PS3 is out the picture.
