it's neck-n-neck. slywink

For some people it's a minor difference that wins out, but all those "minors" still add up quick.
Now lets just hope MS can put as much QC / development attention to the new 360 SKU. slywink

Of course this is a forum of people who mainly play their Xbox 360.  I'm sure if I went over to the PS2 Hardware forum at Gamefaqs and made the same poll, the results would be remarkably different.  Not saying that the poll is wrong-just that you always need to consider the source of your data.

Just checked it out.  I must say I'm extremely jealous of your japanese ability! I have no problems with katakana or hirigana but i'm only a novice at Kanji.  It would take me forever to go through all of that dialog!! I must say that your blog is extremely professional looking.

What's the point of the offset positioning?
My thumbs aren't offset--why should the sticks be?

My thoughts exactly.  icon_smile  But some people feel that is more comfortable to play with the analog sticks offset.  I guess it all depends on the shape of your hands!
5086  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 price drop? on: July 13, 2007, 12:26:08 PM
So there actually is no price drop after all then.  Basically what you get is an extra 20 gigs for the same price.  Whoop-de doo.  Still there must be quite a lot of 60 gig PS3's still out there.  I wonder if the price of PS3's has dropped in Japan.  If they went down to 39,000 yen then I could use my bic camera points and pick one up for only 16,000 yen  icon_biggrin
5087  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Possible new PS3 controller with offset analog sticks on: July 13, 2007, 12:22:37 PM
The old PS controller never bothered me at all.  I guess I played different kinds of games.  I don't know if they can just switch the two though-because now the D-pad looks to be in a damned awkward position.  I think they would need to change the shape of the entire controller.
5088  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 '07 Coverage: Sony Press Event on: July 13, 2007, 01:40:47 AM
I gotta agree with Gellar on this one.  It's not like you need a special license to get a mouse or keyboard.  Everyone CAN play with the same hardware-if they want to.  If they choose to stick with an archaic form of control for a FPS (such as a regular controller) then that's their choice.
5089  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBLA] Texas Hold'em Update on: July 13, 2007, 01:37:11 AM
Can you play for real money?  Or Xbox Live points at least?

Cool looking game.  But did he really just do a swan dive from a hundred feet up into cart of straw???
5091  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [DS] Sim City Impressions on: July 06, 2007, 11:49:04 PM
Well Gamespot only gave it a 70%
Looks like I'm gonna pass on this one.  Shame.
5092  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: NFL 2K8. on: July 06, 2007, 01:37:49 PM
Well I don't know anything about the NFL so I'm perfectly comfortable about a non-licensed game.  I'm not even really interested in football but I might pick this one up, just to stick it to EA.
5093  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PSP] Own Lumines? Now you can totally hack your PSP with it! on: June 29, 2007, 12:04:29 AM
By the way, how is it that a custom firmware thread is being allowed on the official Playstation boards?  You'd think they would delete and ban anybody who had anything to do with that.
5094  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PSP] Own Lumines? Now you can totally hack your PSP with it! on: June 29, 2007, 12:02:42 AM
Has the new downgrader been released yet?
5095  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [DS] New, FANTASTIC Phantom Hourglass pics [UPDATED! Get in here!] on: June 24, 2007, 10:03:17 AM
Came out yesterday in Japan.  Would this game be fairly text heavy?  My japanese is quite crap but I might like to pick it up.
5096  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PSP] Own Lumines? Now you can totally hack your PSP with it! on: June 24, 2007, 10:01:30 AM
Hmm well I bricked my PSP the last time I tried to do it.  Fortunately Sony fixed it for me but I'm a little bit leery about trying it again.
5097  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Please Help! PSP or DS (yes, this question again!) on: June 22, 2007, 12:54:55 AM
Well Pirates for the PSP is definitely a sweet game-I got so addicted to that game.  The graphics are great and apparently it was far superior to the Xbox version.  I highly recommend it.
5098  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii Internet is Pay to Play on June 30th? on: June 21, 2007, 11:53:21 PM
Yes paying $5 to download a web browser is not exactly "pay to play."  If that were the case then every game we buy is "pay to play".  Pay to play is WoW.  Pay to play is using the internet on my cellphone.
5099  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Please Help! PSP or DS (yes, this question again!) on: June 21, 2007, 11:47:26 PM
Not very helpful advice: If you had have just kept your last PSP then you wouldn't be in this situation right now. I can't understand how anybody buys a console, decides to get rid of it and then buys one all over again!  I don't play my PSP very much nor my PS2 at all, but the very thought of selling either of them has never entered my head!  This isn't a personal criticism of you, Vinda-it's just that this kind of thing happens all the time on these forums.
5100  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [DS] Sim City Impressions on: June 20, 2007, 11:30:53 PM
Hmm problems with the stylus.  That doesn't surprise me.  I had problems with it as well on Age of Empires.  I really don't think the stylus is all it's cracked up to be, especially for games that require pinpoint accuracy like this.  Too bad the game isn't being released on the PSP with larger screen, better graphics and more media space.
5101  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / My blog-about Japan on: June 19, 2007, 03:11:30 AM
Hey peeps! I've just started a new blog if you're interested. It seems every day I open to the second page of my local newspaper and just have to shake my head at what I read. There's a lot of really whacky stories come out of Japan as I'm sure most of you know. Well there's a whole lot more that never make it across the Pacific.

The purpose of this blog was to pick out some of the more interesting ones and put them in one spot so that we can all collectively shake our heads! Most of the stories are whacky or strange although there might be the odd one about NOVA (where I work) as well.

I usually paraphrase the articles and while none of these stories need embellishment, sometimes I use my editorial freedom to insert my own form of humour-your mileage may vary. Anyways I always provide a link so that you can go check the story out for yourself if you want. I've been doing it for a couple weeks now so you can go see what you might be getting yourself into-there's a good sample there I think.

5102  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Sony] Blockbuster chooses Blu-ray on: June 19, 2007, 01:18:56 AM
Maybe it's an American thing but I don't even know what Netflix is-and I doubt if I asked 50 of my closest friends and family that they would either.  Why is a HD movie player owner more likely to use Netflix than a normal DVD player owner?  I bet everyone I know knows about Blockbuster.

5104  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fallout 3 on the 360 on: June 16, 2007, 11:27:11 PM
Didn't they do that for Deus Ex 2 as well?  It carried over to the PC version as well if I remember correctly.
5105  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Sony's Blog-Think Like Major Nelson's site on: June 14, 2007, 01:51:28 PM
Thanks for the Socom link.  I love it but the control kills me. The PSP is definitely lacking in that department.  The rest of the game was fun as hell however.  If I could find it cheap I might pick it up.
5106  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Brothers in Arms DS....first review out... on: June 08, 2007, 10:32:30 PM
Wow that movie looked fantastic! I really like the idea of being able to jump out from the corner and shoot.  I wonder if it'll have online multiplayer.
5107  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hitler's Console Gets Banned (Video) on: June 08, 2007, 03:16:51 AM
I like this one better.  Same scene but talking about the Flight Simulator X demo.

So, earlier in the year I was excited about the big RPGs being spread out in Microsoft's schedule... Now I'm looking at amazon and Blue Dragon, Mass Effect, and Eternal Sonata are all coming out within three weeks of one another? And then we'll have a 6 months drought of good rpgs probably. ARG!
Yeah, Microsoft completely screwed up the scheduling with ME and BD out so close to each other. ES is another publisher so thats up to them-I am glad its coming out then simply because I want to play it so much (indeed these are 3 of my top 5 anticipated games of the entire year!), but its going to be an immense challenge to play each one in time for the next with Bioshock throw in. Here is hoping that BD (which is, from all reports, essentially complete) gets moved up-it seems less likely ME will be moved up-if anything that one might get delayed-no one wants that, but on the other hand I am 99% sure its going to sell buckets-but ES and BD are iffier-ES looks destined for failure even though the demo was genius, so I really wish it had a month of alone time-BD is super hyped up, but its a back to basics anime JRPG that might turn off some and slow down the expected heavy first month sales.

. . . . .  Here are a couple more periods.  Please sprinkle them throughout your paragraph at your lesiure smile
5109  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Japan sales 4/30 - 5/06 (wow!) on: May 14, 2007, 01:11:29 PM
The latest magazine I read doesn't quite agree with those figures.  I think I was reading the Famitsu magazine today.  The DS is definitely kicking butt, but out of the top 5, Sony has got two of those with the PS2 and one of them with the PSP.
5110  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS2]Yakuza Impressions on: May 14, 2007, 12:21:05 AM
Interesting.  I wonder if I should pick this up when I go back home.  The sequel only has one review but it's significantly higher than the first game's reviews so that is good.

A few surprises, at least for me, in that they announced that they're developing a Final Fantasy Tactics 2 for the DS.

Actually they're developing a Final Fantasy Advance Tactics.  Not a big difference to some but a HUGE difference to me.
5112  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: In this thread we talk about awesome PSP demos on: May 12, 2007, 11:16:16 PM
Thanks for that link! I was actually about to post about this because I couldn't find any demos for the PSP.  Looks like I'll have something else to load onto my PSP other than the first season of Quantum Leap for my flight back to Canada  icon_biggrin
5113  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Japan sales 4/30 - 5/06 (wow!) on: May 11, 2007, 11:35:18 PM
Perhaps.  I wonder what it would look like if you removed yearly sports releases from the picture.
5114  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: C&C 3 360 Impressions Thread. on: May 11, 2007, 11:32:57 PM
Can you play with a mouse/keyboard?
5115  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: As much as I like the PS3 on: May 10, 2007, 03:04:31 PM
Really, is Sony releasing a new Dualshock controller? Or is it a third party controller?
5116  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Next gen-worth it? on: May 09, 2007, 12:43:01 PM
Yes that is certainly true but I can't buy a Japanese Xbox because of the whole region thing.  Actually some people have told me that lots of 360 games will work on both regions.  For example, Splinter Cell and Gears of War.  But if some games don't have a problem with the regions then why can't all games be that way?  I don't get it. Otherwise I probably would pick up a 360.
5117  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Uplink - Uh....whoa on: May 09, 2007, 03:35:56 AM
Can I play this game and pretend that I'm Chloe O'Brien?  icon_biggrin
5118  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Next gen-worth it? on: May 09, 2007, 03:28:07 AM
I'm wondering, living in Japan can I play on an American/Canadian account?  I think I would much rather buy a Japanese PS3 for about $300 Cdn than a North American 360 for $450-500 (tax incl).

The whole online thing is definitely appealing to me.  Does the PS3 have downloadable games like Xbox Live does?  Hmm...doushiyo kana? (I wonder what should I do?)
5119  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Next gen-worth it? on: May 08, 2007, 11:51:41 PM
I'm coming back to Canada in a few days so I've been stocking up on cameras (if you know anybody in Japan then cameras are definitely a good thing to ask for.  With prices and taxes I saved my aunt over $400 Cdn on a Nikon D80).  Anyways I've managed to accumulate 16,000 yen worth of Bic Camera points.  That would bring the cost of a 20GB PS3 down to only 33,000 yen or about $275 US.  I would also consider the 360 but there's the whole problem with not being able to play NA games or movies.  Anyways, it's all very tempting but I find myself wondering, is it even worth spending the money now if I don't have an HD TV?  I just have a regular Sony SDTV (well actually it may be partly HD because it can play those Discover HD channels quite beautifully) so I'm wondering if it is really worth spending the money right now or if I should just wait a couple years.  Maybe I can stick to my PS2 and computer for gaming.  Still it would be nice to have a cheap Blueray player around.  Sorry for this rambling post.  I guess basically what I'm wondering is, will I still be impressed with the way the games look on my regular TV?
