PSP, or Wii?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - PSP, or Wii?

Blame Ubisoft and other crappy developers who made crappy games for Wii's launch, probably not realizing that the Wii would get so popular... You keep saying wait 40 days for the PS3 to get good games and such, well wait 40 days for the Wii then too...you'll see.

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 )

Are you crazy? Ken could pull off 100% software BC via CELL BE in his sleep!!!

I hope the retrocompatibility has at least 75-80% for the PS3 in Europe or we will get real mean on Sony .If they manage that and keep improving by firmware updates and the software emulation gives us some bone as 480p or even 720p support then allright if not ....Sony will upset a lot of users ....



Being that the PSP's screen resolution is 480 x 272 and the shot you linked is 960 x 544 I think it is fair to say that the PSP image is 100% Bullshit ... Anyways, everyone already knows that Far Cry was a third rate port and not good in any way ...



Kwaad said: Is sony screwing Europe? Or are they just giving them the future first?
While I don't really get the future thing, this is simply bad for new ps3 owners in Europe. BUT this is by far a smart business descision, hey it's eliminating 75 bucks of cost to the system, for a feature that within time will work perfectly, that's smart. and what's good for the late adopters is eliminating 75 dollars of cost now will allow them to lower the price alot sooner. So in the long run it's probably smart. But costomers paying full price now might not be.

First hand experience..... the game looks that good. Idiotic AI IMO but it does look good. If I am not mistaken, even though this software BC starts in europe it is going to happen in all of the PS3's around the world. The real news is that they are taking out the hardware. What are the chances that they will use a firmware update to do this to all current systems? Will we get upscaled PS2 games? Wow for the first time I would have to say being an early adopter was awesome.

Why... God why. A handheld... outdoes a 'next gen' on 3D graphics. Always amusing.
I found this funny: http://www.gamestats.com/objects/770/770960/ http://www.gamestats.com/objects/800/800277/ God why the same game character has much better overall reviews in little wii than in super ps3...



I found and still find this funny: http://www.gamespot.com/wii/sports/madden07/index.html http://www.gamespot.com/ps3/sports/madden07/index.html A Wii version of a typical PS top seller game gets better score than PS3 version. I also find this funny: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15757524/ Btw. have you checked the graphical differences between the Godfathers on Wii and PS3?

Why? Perhaps you should actually play the Wii and then you will know.

How do you know it's $75 to manufacture that? This is the Playstation 2 CPU, right? Or what exactly is that chip? Anyway, technology from the '90s. Development costs have been recouped long ago. Probably less than $20 to manufacture.
