As others said, this includes the PS3, PSP, anyone with multiple accounts all of which are counted, and anyone who signed up on the Playstation website and doesn't even own a PS3.
That's like comparing 20 million in their "network" to Windows LIVE + Xbox Live + Xbox.com + Games for Windows, etc. etc.
Pretty sure if we did this the Xbox "network" would be much MUCH larger.
The Resistance 2 online graphics were like mind blowingly bad. They reminded me of Call of Duty 2 level, if not worse. The campaign graphics were good, but the online was awful and you all should be able to admit that.
On a side note, when my cousin had to get his PS3 repaired twice for faulty Blu-Ray drive, he got a mess of trouble with their customer service, and 2 $100 fees for repairs. Did he swear to never buy a Sony console again? No, and he still enjoys his PS3 today.
Using the screenshots supplied, I'd say PS3 graphics haven't gotten better at all, and has even slipped lower in a few areas.
he delay from thinking "I want to fire" and pulling the trigger is not the issue, as that would be the same between using a controller and a firearm. The real issue is the delay from when you hit the trigger to when you see/hear the bullet. There is no 131ms delay from when I pull the trigger on a real life weapon to when the bullet leaves the barrel. The game definitely made it way too long of a delay. No way to justify it.
Although, it could be the incentive I need to sell off my PS3 and become a single console man again!
Where motion control falls apart is when it's an afterthought as it is on the PS3, or when you try to do it with cameras looking at your hands or face or whatever (this never works right once you get it into the living room with strange lighting, it's imprecise, and it's hard to fully integrate into games to control menus, pausing the game, and so on).
Yeah, it can give you the view from the hip, where everything looks taller and you seem like a midget. It has a 130ms delay.(making fun of killzone 2 and its engine)
ony is the one hurting the industry right now by adding high developer costs and complicated hardware (which drove at least 2 companies out of business).
Still makes me wonder just how many PSN accounts are unique, considering I'm sure thousands of them if not more are duplicates created to take advantage of different regions (UK for example) or certain games (CoD 4/5).
I'd rather pay a very small premium of $3 per month to get great quality online play for all my games than to pay a high premium for just one game like many PC gamers who like MMO's. Plus with the added quality in games like Call of Duty, it ensures that I pick the game for the 360 since LIVE is so much better especially on multiplat games.
Need I go on? Need I continue to show how biased you are?
