11481  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Things I've noticed now that I have a 360 and a PS3. on: March 07, 2008, 04:46:47 PM

Quote from: morlac on March 07, 2008, 04:40:22 PM

I have been given clearance from the Wife to procure a next gen. system.  After doing a ton of reading I still can't decide.  The Xbox 360 has a ton more games but the PS3 is more feature rich, future proof, and possibly reliable (jury still out on the newest version of xbox?).  I think i'm leaning towards the XBOx because of the games.  I went to the store yesterday and only came up with a couple of games I would want right now on the PS3 that were not cross plat titles.  The pull of Bioshock and Mass effect is strong however as my current PC will have no hope of playing them.  Looking into the future doesn't help much as they both have some interesting exclusives on the horizons and I have been reading good things about developers unlocking the PS3's potential.  This is a seriously tough decision now.

Even though I love this PS3, if I could only get 1 to start with it would definitely be a 360 because of the MP community and the number of games/exclusives that I enjoy.

This looks real cool, but I have so many games to play right now...I dunno if I'll be getting on board with this one as I did with COD4.

Well after a couple weeks of ownership now I absolutely love the PS3.  I'm still playing my 360 also, so keep those SDf badges away. 

Pixel Junk Monsters is so wonderful looking and such a fun game to play.  Simple to start but difficult to master, Blizzard-style.  I also got Super Stardust HD, which is glorious looking and sounding.  As previously mentioned, Uncharted is a godly game.  I also got the full version of R&C and it's great looking as well, and a fun departure from a FPS, but still a shooter, which I like.

The UI is so slick, the whole system just seems slick.  I'm definitely glad to be on board with both systems!

I'm a bit dissapointed in the 'scale' of the game, but after GoW2, I can't imagine them finding a way to outdo the setpieces of that game on a handheld.

Yeah, I fired up GoW 2 again for a bit last night (and wow does it look amazing upscaled on PS3) and I just don't think you can get any more epic than that. 

They seem to be going for an epic feel in Chains of Olympus by pulling the camera really far back frequently and it's effective, but also kind of weird on a platform witih such a tiny screen- there have been times where Kratos has sort of blended into the background with the enemies and I can't figure out who's who.

I'm hoping that they port it to PS2- as much as I'm enjoying it on PSP, I would love to play it on the big screen upscaled. 

GoW and GoW 2 were reasons I miss BC in my PS3.  Hopefully it'll make a software comeback sometime in the future, so I can play both these games.

Hey guys, late to the party.  So I am confused about this one....is it a game or a demo?

It's essentially a demo that has a lot of content in it.  And it's pretty much a "sneak peak" as to the whole game, which who knows when will be coming out.

Ah ok thanks.  I don't really like driving games much but I think I'll get this one just to see the eye candy.  Sure looks nice.

Anyone considering getting Bully on the 360 might want to wait.  I'm seeing some pretty widespread reports that it's a buggy mess (crashes, audio issues, godawful framerate, etc). 

Good thing it's now so easy to patch console games!  crybaby

I can confirm at least one hard freeze during play.  Framerate has been pretty good, though.  There are patches where it gets smoother, but normal framerate is fine.

EDIT TO ADD:  Man, this sucks.  I know I won't keep playing now and wait for a patch.  This will totally kill any momentum I had.  Same thing happened with the Shivering Isles.  That item leak issue kept me from playing for months, and when it was fixed, I didn't have anywhere near as much interest in playing.

We have just become aware of the issues people are having with Bully Scholarship Edition on Xbox 360. It appears that some older 360s are experiencing framerate issues, freezes and other problems. You have our word that we never experienced any of this in QA - in any of our offices or at Microsoft. I am horrified, and we are now working around the clock to rectify this situation. Thanks to Neo-Gaf for bringing this matter to our attention. We love our games and put a huge amount of energy and care into making them all that they can be. We would never shove anything out the door - we never have and never will. We apologise to everyone affected for the inconvenience. Respectfully, Sam Houser

I know ATB doesn't endorse it, but I'm saying the best way to use XBL is to only accept voice coms from people in your friends list.  I opened it up to all for 1 COD match and that was all it took for me to permanently change it back to friends only.

Is that a global setting and if so how do you enable it?

IIRC it's in your privacy settings and you set hear voice to friends only or something like that.  If that's totally off, I'll power up the xbox and check for sure.

Sorry. Voting is closed.  For the record, COD4 IS your game of the year.

Something I saw over at penny-arcade that struck me as pertinent:

Just got back from the store with two copies of Army of Two, my mind already blossoming with mercenary exploits, when it suddely became clear that the game has no local play option.  No local play option.  Even on the same Goddamned LAN, both accounts need to be Gold Tier Live accounts.  You seriously have got to be fucking kidding me.

I hate xbox live.

QFT

Xbox Live is the largest collection of racist assholes I've ever encountered.  It blows my mind.

I will go a bit further:

<clears throat>

XBOX Live is the largest collection of ignorant, racist, intolerant, homophobic, sexist, stereotyping, egotistical, immature brats, I've ever encountered.

I cannot tell you how many times I have wanted to strangle some asshole on the other end of the system.
