Announcing a system as underpowered is  retard though, I do agree that there is merit in that argument.
I think that setting peoples expectations that PS3 games are currently no better or worse than 360 games (graphically) is a fair statement.
15083  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What the Cell is going on? on: December 01, 2006, 01:51:59 AM
The company putting out the 26 day old console would have us believe it.  nod

As to the "360=incremental upgrade"  eek

3GHz triple core = 766MHz+ ??? Pass the pipe, man.  icon_wink

The fact of the matter with PS3 is, they are currently riding on their name. The product doesn't stand on it's own until it has something worth shelling out for. I am NOT prepared to, as a consumer, say I am willing to buy the PS3 right now at a premiym premium "because the 360 games right now are only better cuz they've been out for a year".

Games. I want em. When Sony can come to the table and gimme something I want, I'll fork over the cash.


(IIRC Xbox1 was 766, it might have been 833 or something... sub 1000MHz single core celeron-ish CPU)

Burnout Revenge (360).

Blech. PDZ is a 2005 game, people. Tongue It wasn't THAT bad that it needs to be carried over.

I'd have to say that for me that Samurai Warriors 2 should have been so much more than it was. The only game that I felt was more lacking was N3.

Multiplayer woulda kicked ass. ::sigh::

And Chromehounds? It was really good; (even the single player) as long as you're ok with sparse. The singleplayer game was essentially an excellent trainer for the different classes, but there was no REAL singleplayer game.

It sucks that Resistance doesn't have the online co-op of Gears, but its wide variety of modes and the differing capabilities of the playable species give it the advantage.

Winner: Resistance

Co-op is the king of Multiplayer, bar none. Therefore, how could resistance win this category?  ::shrug:: I hope that ALL future FPS games have a co-op ability.

Kevin, thanks for the market reminder... I knew there were a few other factors; I just couldn't think of them off the top of my head.

[re: Marvel Ult. Alliance] Oh and the 360 versions stomps the PS3 version so hard, it has worse reviews according to Game Rankings....pretty incredible.  icon_lol

Actually, here's the math : PS3 game reviews don't all come from multi-platform sites, and neither do the 360 reviews. Therefore the discrepancies in numbers isn't a apples-to-apples comparison. Head-to-head comparisons are the only way (and people will still scream foul).  icon_biggrin

As to the sales figures, the market is saturated with platforms right now. There are 3 last-gen systems and the first one out of the next-gen gate is MS. They are climbing a new hill, and frankly didn't get some of the games they needed to get out to boost their sales. They didn't have a "Halo-class" system seller, and they were kneecapped with the NVIDIA / backwards compatibility issues. I'd like you to produce these sales (not shipping) numbers though; MS is sitting pretty good AFAIK. (6-7mil shipped). What was the Xbox1 after the first year? I thought they only hit 7 million after their second christmas season (and a price-drop)

That being said, WTF does that have to do with this topic?

We all can? Everyone has a 360? Impressive!

I wonder though....how come the Xbox 360 is doing worse than the Xbox (sales wise) over the first 12 months of it's life? That doesn't seem to square with your claim that we can all play Gears of War.

*duh*

... and the PS2 userbase was bigger than the PS1 after it's first year out? Are you on crack?

And yeah, everyone who wants to go buy a 360 can find one in retail. If you want a ps3, you could just buy a 360 AND an HDTV (low cost) at the same price as the going rate on eBay.

So yeah, I've  had a couple people back out in PMs.

If you are TRULY interested, send me a PM. If you've already sent me one, send your interest again. Keep in mind that sending this is to MY discretion. If there someone who's a regular contributer whom I have a (potentially false) sense of trust, I may act on that over the "first come first served" basis.

As of right now, I don't know if the second one is in yet. (I've not talked to my brother yet). He was interested in the amazon 360 for 100bux, so you could offer that up and I'd be inclined to reduce the cost by whatever that deal cost you (shipping taxes and 100USD). He's on a poor-man's 360 .. borrowing his roommates when he can.

Note that I leave town tomorrow until next wednesday, so if you need the Wii fast then we need to DO this fast. I don't want to be sitting with a Wii for another week or two. I can walk away from it (return it to EB Games). As far as shipping goes, I don't care how fast or how much you wanna spend on it. I get you the quote, and you get the goods.

first thing to try is eliminating the HD switcher. Go directly to the source.
I would also try the composite cables; this could help rule out the cable config.
Also plug it into another set and see if you have the same problems. If you do, it's not the set. biggrin

  thumbsup Seriously, just starting these threads is usually looking for a fight.

The point to it would be to determine (ultimately) which platform is worth it right now, as these two titles are considered "system sellers".
15108  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Resistance vs Gears of War - FIGHT! on: November 22, 2006, 08:42:34 PM
No, I wasn't a console convert until Halo came out (avidly waited for that while it was still a PC FPS game).

I had rented a PS2 right at launch and found nothing worthy. I got an HDTV, and a year or so later I picked up Halo & Xbox (at launch) and didn't have money for a PS2. The idea of paying full price for games for the PS2 that were so visibly inferior (with exception given to maybe 4-5 titles) to the Xbox kept me away from it. 95% of all cross-platform games from last-gen were superior on the xbox (except the godawful release of NFS:HP2) so there was only console exclusives that would have had me going to the PS2.

I played a few JRPGs on my buddies PS2 (borrowed it for 2-3 months) and some of their platformers, but I ultimately couldn't be bothered. I eventually got a Cube as well (15bux used !!) and so I had 2 of the 3 kingdoms covered and that carried me through to the 360 release.

Right now I have a 360, PC and may end up having a Wii after tax-time. I may even go for a PS3 in the future; I'm in no rush though. As I see it, the Wii is less than the 360, but the cost reflects this.

As to the topic at hand, GoW's perspective is awesome; it overcomes the lack of peripheral vision that FPS's usually have.

And part of me just kinds of wishes that Resistance hadn't become *the* premiere title of launch and consequence tarnished by all of Sony's screw ups.  This is Insomniac and it's hard to find a more beloved series than Ratchet & Clank and it bothers me that they really got their chance for the spotlight only to become a target for failings from Sony that had nothing to do with them. 

But they said "sure" to Sony's dumptruck full of money for exclusive rights, no? If they make it non-exclusive, they might just have a shot at a bigger exposure.

It bothers me that Insomniac hasn't made any games for the Xbox platforms, with exception to Spyro.

Resistance = GoW? GameRankings.com doesn't think so. 89.2% vs 94.8% respectively.

I am assuming this is coming from media outlets that would be lambasted for showing such system preference. I could be wrong on that; I'm just providing a different perspective. As to my own interests in this, I do hope Resistance is worth it. At some point I may pick up a PS3 (after at least 1 price drop), so it is to my benefit.

Hetz, as to your "unbiased" opinion, you dropped the 360 fanfare pretty quick. You were pretty pumped about it last year. Does the PS3 really smoke the 360 on all counts? I'm no Sony hater; I play on their hardware (KV-30HS510 IIRC, or 420.. the one with the beveled bottom and the memory card slot). I just couldn't be bothered with the PS2 for its dated graphics and full-price games. (not to say gameplay isn't important, however I get equivelant value from my MS platform and PC gaming)

Try going into the mini dashboard and then preferences. You can set up axis prefs from there.

I don't know if they make a difference for GoW though, or if there is an X axis preference.

Epic's definitely 3rd party.  UT2k7 is PS3 (and PC) only at this point.

Apparently, Epic has put some work into the 360 version, but not heavy development. Given the "Gaming for Windows" platform and the 360, it only makes sense that this won't stay Sony exclusive for long.

You people are going to make me blush.

Yeah, I picked it up to speculate it; however I don't do that here as I care so much for all of you.

Well, most of you.  icon_twisted

I actually have a second one on the way too (my bro preordered).

I kind of wanted one myself, but shelling out 375bux for more games that I don't have time for is bad for me.
(and the GF would shoot me)
I'll end up picking one up next year, but I wanna help people out.

Speculating for a 15% possibility ain't worth the hassle. I am all for getting you guys some goods though, so lets give it a week (to see if N ships more to retail) unless you guys REALLY want one now.

I'm upfront on the charges; you're looking at 330USD for the Wii and Zelda, plus shipping/insurance cost (your choice of speed and carrier) and the Paypal transaction fee for me to "withdraw" money to pay my cc bill.

Like I said, I have two at my beck and call (and if you want I can buy other stuff at a 10% discount due to a situation I'm not getting into here). That is ONLY for the second Wii though; the first one is for the one listed above.
