161  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Revolution has begun...(IGN chan, specs, launch date?) on: December 07, 2005, 10:26:07 PM
Nintendo has been trying to get the non-gamer for years, what makes this console and it's games any different, a controller that looks like a dvd remote?  What is really gonna seperate what they are doing now from what they have done the last 7 years.  All I see is them again failing to get that non traditional gamer they have been after, but also not getting the hardcore gamer because we'll all be too busy playing on next generation consoles to fiddle with a system not too much improved over an xbox.  In the grand scheme of things, this console looks like it will fail miserably and lead to nintendo just doing handhelds and software for the big two.

Well I've been a gamer for a while and Nintendo was the company that really got me started.  I appreciate all they have done for gaming, but there view of consloe gaming has become really antiquated, which is why I haven't had a Nintendo system of any sort since the SNES.  They continue to try and rely on Mario, Zelda, and others and give gamers rehash after rehash of the same ole games.  Sure they have some new twist or look a little better, but I expect more out of a gaming system.  Clearly the Gamecube came in last in the colse wars of last Gen, and there is a reason for that.  it will be the same reaso they come in last this time around too, and they will then have to decide if they want to compete with the big boys or just become a software company.
163  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / SONY PS3 to LAUNCH IN 2007 on: November 07, 2005, 03:11:20 AM
Based upon the demand for the 360 so far, I would say a full year before seeing the PS3 in the U.S. is VERY big.  Microsoft will gain huge marketshare if they can prove to consumers that the 360 is a significant upgrade to the xbox, or PS2.  I think Sony needs to do a dual launch in the U.S and Japan in the Spring or they are gonna lose in the next generation war.

Just think if PS3 does not launch until next Holiday season, we would have seen Halo3, Gears of War, the two new bioware games, Too Human, Ninja Gaiden 2,  maybe a next gen Forza, and all of next years sports titles on the 360.  Those games are gonna be system sellers.  Sony better get it's act together quick, because I don't see too many great PS2 games coming out over the next year to keep gaming fans interested.

Not launching the PS3 in the U.S. till next holiday season would be a HUGE mistake.
164  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 - Massive Shortages at Launch on: November 05, 2005, 08:51:36 PM
I think a lto of people are comparing PS2 to the 360.  I don't see the same EXTREME shortages happening, also that $400.00 price point is gonna be tough on some people.  Best Buy might sell out, but Target, Sears, Comp USA.  They'll have some systems through day one.  Either way, I'll have a full court press going.  I'll check out the 24hr Walmart near me, and then I have a Target, Best Buy, Circuit City, and Comp YSA all within two 5 miles of each other.

Exactly.  the fact that its $400.00 plus the fact that it will hit before Thanksgiving leads me to believe that the first few days, you'll be able to fine one pretty easily.  The day after Thanksgiving though,all bets are off.

No one?  I heard they came in all the boxed copies now.
171  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Anyone have a WOW free pass? on: July 10, 2005, 06:01:20 PM
I really want to give it a try, but I don't wanna pay $50.00 and not like it.  I heard when you buy it, that it comes with a 10 day pass or something.  Does anyone have one that they are not using?
