The PS3 will when (win???) this race and by a good margin. Sony knows as well as any other intelligent human life on the planet, that the majority of people in this world are exteamly unintelligent. (What the fu...?) People as a majority make stupid decisions (I should have not read this... being one of them), because most do not look at a situation from every angle before making a dessision. (Desssioshuyns people!) The PS3 is the best deal in consumer electronics at this very moment (HA!, not yet), and will continue to be until the next Playstation comes out. If someone went and bought a PS3 in November 06 they made a purchase that will still be relevent 15 years (15???? really?)  from now. All of the people that bought a PS3 are intelligant people (Not all of them, but thank you), that looked at all the possible scenarios and came to the only smart conclusion, the PS3 is the best purchase they could possibly make. (I just like video games) Thanks to the kindness (huh?) of Sony the stupid people (Wait... I thought I was the intelligent one... Now I'm just confused) of the world which is most people have a chance to buy the PS3 for years to come. With every passing day the PS3 becomes that much better of a purchase compared to the Wii and 360 until eventually everyone with what I look at as the bare minimal (Minimum...) of intelligance realizes they must have one if they have any interest in entertanment.
If the Wii does when this generation the world will be in a sad state, (Because of a video game system?) Hillary Clinton will be president of the US w/the door opening for arnold swartzinager to be elligable (They aren't even in the same party!)  (this will happen regrdless), (So it is, or isn't Nintendo's fault that Arnold becomes president?) and people will be on the 5 itertion (There is gonna be 5 of them??? Are you an inside source?) of the Wii by 2015 having spent 1200 USD on consoles while also purchasing a Blu-Ray player, because you will barley ("Barley" Goes in Soup... or beer) be able to find DVDs and all the retards (Retards?) will still be in debt because they are incapable of looking to the future when they make a decisions. (Like this letter)

P.S. To all of you pieces of shit that only support Nintendo (I was unaware that poop could support anything) in thier fine job of fucking over the consumer. (No one from Nintendo has ever manhandled me) The next Playstation will not be 599.99 at launch (I think you missed a period right here) Ken Kuteragi is gone and Sony did the PS3 the way it is on purpose. (What does that mean...) Ken was ready to go into retirment, and wanted to lay a foundation of what the future of Playstation needed. The next playstation will have a Cell processorbut it will be 50 times more powerful than cell in PS3, (Some more missing words here too)  but very cost effective because ken laid out the path.(He lays paths? Can he help me with my driveway?) The next Playstation will use Blu-Ray (Again... I think you're missing a period) for all of you that have not been paying attiontion the last 3 years Blu-ray has the ability to get 8x bigger than it is right now. (That's a lot) The only new tech in the PS4 will be the jointly developed nVidia and Sony GPU. PS4 will cost 499.99 at launch. (I love the inside sources. I want to hang with you)

Sorry... I couldn't resist


Ya see... this is exactly why you should not drink and type. Let that be a lesson to the rest of you.


 Great one Thrillhouse, this is the best post I hve seen in weeks

So i can play real games not mediocre chilidish party mini game whatever.

How will the PS3 win if only "intelligent" people buy it and the world is made up mostly of unintelligent people? And I love how DVD is going to have a much shorter lifespan than VHS which only started being completely pulled from retail shelves about 2 years ago. That kind of suggests to me that blu-ray will have an even shorter lifespan and be replaced by digital mediums around 2015.

To cash in my CC rewards points for $300 in Circuit City gift cards to purchase a 360 or not: That is the question.

I'm not sure why I even bother leaving a flamefest thread like this open.

I tried to let the anti-Wii thread go as long as I could, but if the fanboys aren't even going to try to keep it under control, then there's no point.

Bet with disolitude: Left4Dead will have a higher Metacritic rating than Project Origin, 3 months after the second game's release.  (hasn't been 3 months but it looks like I won :-p )

More terrible predictions coming Jan. 2011!!!

I've actually got something to add to whole Games as an art form discussion that apparently ended a month according to dates everyone posted.

I really love movies, and I don't dilute myself into thinking I'm an actual movie buff or an authority of them, it's just a passionate hobby of me.

Akira Kurosawa said (assuming this isn’t a butchered version of the quote) "For me, film-making combines everything. That's the reason I've made cinema my life's work. In films painting and literature, theatre and music come together. But a film is still a film.". And I think that’s my attraction to watching movies. For me, truly great films seamlessly marry exceptional pieces of from multiple art forms into a singular experience.

I believe this is where there’s a disconnect for video games, and people not considering it in art form. The actual interaction aspect of games doesn’t blend together with their cinematic aspects, whose foundations were set by the decades of film making that came before it. The challenge is to smoothly blend the experience of what you see, hear and do.

I greatly enjoyed the game Okami, both in its story telling aspects and the game play. Despite that, I don’t feel these are truly the same experiences. I would enjoy using the celestial brush to fight and solve puzzles, and seeing the next pieces of the story as they unfold, but it felt like distinctly different aspects. I feel the story telling had artistic merit, but not as much as the game play, which I felt was simply fun. All though I’ll admit, there was a certain aspects of drawing life back into the world and restoring faith to people had a certain emotional attachment, it still differs in how I felt about the story telling itself. In short, it did quite feel like a singular experience, it was like experiencing a game and an anime.

For that reason I think the Wii actually is a greater step towards games being accepted as an art form. It’s provides opportunity for a greater more natural form of interacting with games. I also feels it’s creating an important change in the gaming industry’s future that help avoids it’s from entirely being dominated by nothing but superficial advancements in special effects, something that I fell does plague many modern movies, and increasingly is plaguing games as well.

This all of course is my personal feelings on the matter. I think the Wii might start provoking people into my line of thinking of balancing two conflicting aspects into one complete experience. Potential games like Pollen Sonata, Sadness, and Capucine may all be first in early generation that greater embraces this ideal, or not.
