I think the PS3 just came out too late, if I buy a console - which is unlikely since I can get a PC for around £450 that will be more powerful than a PS3 - then I'd buy a 360 or a Wii, the Wii has that whole motion control thing going for it, the 360 has more games I'd actually like to play coming out for it. The PS3? Well it might be the most powerful out of the last generation of consoles that are lying around but since it doesn't have anything I care to play on it it's just not going to get my money. If other people think like me then it'll never get the money it needs to attract decent games...
Oh and there's the price and so on. I can get a lot more bang for my buck elsewhere.
no games- the PS3 has been barely out for a year for crying out loud so it would be pretty obvious that it wouldn't have that many games for this current generation of console, as compared to the Xbox360 that came out the year before. bad online- You've hardly, really hadn't, given any proof why its bad online. I've played some of popular games for both the PS2 and 3 to be pretty decent for the titles I've played. and how does the PS3 suck go in hand with sony being sued?
Im of the opinion that the subject wont be decided until at least a year. the PS3 needs to get some time and software under its belt before it starts to appeal to the 360 adopters. the Xbox's year head start wasnt an accident. MS knew they needed to get their shiat out the gate early if they didnt want to face another crushing defeat to Sony in the console wars (starting to come back and haunt them as the hardware isnt up to task and warranty payouts are hurting a division that is already in the hole).
By this Christmas with both sides whipping out their 'killer apps' we'll see who is gonna rule the high end roost. Im siding Sony simply because of the user base of PS2 fans who will most lkely upgrade, the supremecy of Blu-Ray over HD-DVD and long term dissatisfaction folks are getting with the 360. The Wii will continue to do brisk sales to casual gamers of course.
As far as im concerned, 360 hasnt put out anything thats significantly better than its competitors. I prefer Resistance to Gears of War and i cared neither for Halo (over hyped boring fps) or Killzone nor will i care for their latest iterations.
i dont care for GTA series but most folks do and since its not an exclusive to either system, who cares anyway? Lair looks kickass though its reliance on the PS3's shitty 6-axis may ruin it for me while Acecombat 6 for the 360 has me almost crying from the wait.
Oughta be an interesting holiday season
Sony screwed themselves by making a huge juggernaut of a machine that has everything which in turn ups the cost. Look at the Wii LOOK AT IT!!!!! PS2 graphics and its selling more why!?!?!? because its cheap and the games are fun. Xbox will always have supirior online I remember back in the day I had both XBL and ps2 online XBL was so much easier to set up and work with, never noticed much lag on either but thats due to a good connection. As for games, PS3 I WAS gonna buy for Tekken 6, DMC4, Assassin's Creed, Killzone 2, and something else who cares for that. Now I can get DMC4 and Assassin's Creed for 360, so why get a PS3 if half the games went to a system I already have?
And I don't know whats fun about MGS. Or GTA. I'll just play crackdown and be happy blowing up foreigners. :P
I didn't make it!
Half Life 2 Episode 2, thats all I care about right now (anyone else think steam might take over the PC industry)

Thats nice :rolleyes:. More importantly though, I would like to point out that I own a progressive scan DvD player and we took a visit to my cousin's over the weekend who is wealthy enough to buy a Blu-Ray player. So we sat and watched "House of Flying Daggers" since it came free with his Blu-Ray. And honestly. I could not tell the difference from the quality of my Progressive scan DvD player and his $500 Blu-Ray. He ended up returning the thing next day. And yes, we were watching the movie on a 1080P 42" LCD.

$500 for a blu-ray? I find that hard to believe because one of the things going for the PS3 is that it is a cheap alternative for a blu-ray player. You have to remember, you need to buy blu-ray movies that have come out after the technology has been fully utilized. HOFD is a movie of a few years and blu-ray is relatively new, you should try a movie like 300 which is a lot more recent therefore would be more up to standards.
The online play on the PS3 is not bad, but the friends function sucks. Personally I like the arcade games better than the actual games lol

That's exactly what I'm talking about. Who really needs Blu-Ray right now? I believe the 360 Elite even has a built in DVD upscaler drive, and yet, even with it's quite larger hard drive and superior graphics technology, it costs less then the cheapest PS3 model. Most people don't have 5-6 hundred dollars to dish out on a console. That's where PS3 fails. On the other hand, for a 360, 250-480 dollars, depending on the system, is much more acceptable for an all-around more versatile machine, with better graphics hardware, and much better online play. And then for the casual gamer, the Wii is only 250 dollars. So what do you want to spend? 250-300 dollars for a basic 360 or a Wii, or would you like to give sony 500-600 dollars for a PS3 with lower end gfx specs, a shotty Blu-Ray drive that you really don't need, and a bunch of other un-appealing items?
not only that, but the PS3 is the hardest system to develop games for. John C. from ID Software explained that for the 360, making things generally take up 32mb of space, while the PS3 takes up 96mb. It's a big deal because the PS3 is already partitioned memory where the 360 is 512 megs of unified memory. Here's the full interview.
