FUCK....trashleg when did u become a Xxcellent debater???..wtf

Um...you do realize that he's MontanaHatchet, right? Not trashleg?

 

If that was a joke, then sorry.


O_O......*ahem* of course i knew that you cur!!!...only a fool would make such a noob mistake.....

Well, I'm new to this website, so I don't know you guys well enough, sorry. =/


dude i was being funny..ur were right i feel for it i didnt know it was Monty..^_^

Like I said, I'm new here, so I'm going to have trouble grasping sarcasm here and there. It is, after all, a flawed concept on the internet.

 

OT: I don't think it can now, to be honest. If Sony manages to get on top this gen, that'll trigger the biggest fanboy meltdown in history.



Rockstar: Announce Bully 2 already and make gamers proud!

Kojima: Come out with Project S already!

But we already had that multiple times this gen, with Nintendo 'Wii' then 'OMG $600!!!' AND then 'FFXIII on XBOX360'.  I don't know how many fanboy meldowns the gaming industry can have in one gen before they just start crying wolf.



Six upcoming games you should look into:

 

  

Is it just me or is trashleg now montana?



 

mM

@Maxis: I know. But this one would take the cake.

On another note, thank god I was occupied with other things during the FFXIII on Xbox 360 meltdown. Would've been hell to listen to all the fanboys.

WAY too late. They could steal some of the Wii's thunder but it would take one hell of an extreme to take the spotlight from Nintendo... Like a 99$ PS3.



4 ≈ One

Sony could probably steal this gen from Nintendo, if they were willing to do what's necessary to capture the blue ocean. But they will never be willing to do that, and therefore they pose no threat.



Complexity is not depth. Machismo is not maturity. Obsession is not dedication. Tedium is not challenge. Support gaming: support the Wii.

What do I hate about modern gaming? I hate tedium replacing challenge, complexity replacing depth, and domination replacing entertainment. I hate the outsourcing of mechanics to physics textbooks, art direction to photocopiers, and story to cheap Hollywood screenwriters. I hate the confusion of obsession with dedication, style with substance, new with gimmicky, old with obsolete, new with evolutionary, and old with time-tested.
There is much to hate about modern gaming. That is why I support the Wii.

A great deal of the major PS3 titles people are looking forward to are multi-platform titles with 360 or enhanced ports. Plus Sony won't even have their motion sensor controller ready for a while still (and even then, it's after Natal and AFTER Wiimote + Motion Plus). PS3 is pretty much a system running in the same place as GameCube last gen, but on the budget and fans of PS2.

The PS3 outsold the GameCube in 2 and a half years, and shows no signs of slowing down.

At the expense of multiple price cuts and massive marketing campaigns, etc.  Both of which are causing their company to hemridge funds. Sony's image and profits are both in the red.  They're going to have quite the uphill battle to bring themselves back.  One that might hurt their future.

The Ps3 is similar to the Gamecube if you don't consider a huge amount of factors and just point to it being in third place.

Otherwise, no.

That was pretty much all I meant by saying its running in the same 'place' as Gamecube.  Don't know why people have to get into this big personal debate over things and think people are saying personal about a console.  Wasn't saying 'PS3 has sold only as well a GameCube' or 'PS3 is a failure in comparison to the Wii' or something.  But still, I do feel the PS3 isn't doing well and its only been recently that its seen an upswing.

Comparing this gen's third place to last gen's third place is like comparing this gen's first place to the third gen's first place. Tell me, did the GameCube and Xbox, even combined, come anywhere near the PS2? No. The PS2 sold 140 million of a gen with 185 million consoles. However, the GameCube did make a profit (or rather, Nintendo made a profit from 2001-2006, most likely due to the GBA) so in that sense the GC was superior. But no, in terms of "place", the PS3 is doing better, because it's a closer competition.

PS3 has already sealed its fate for 3rd place this gen, and there will be little that can change that, even a knock off Wiimote. Sony's implementation seems to be little more than an afterthought, and a sort of "me too!" statement to draw in some third party support that might have otherwised been drawn to Wii. Other than that, this thing will have little significance to the PS3's success. Accessory add ons tend to perform poorly, and that's essentially what the Sony wand is.

Nintendo has this gen locked up, barring an unprecedented collapse. Now next gen may be a different story. But I believe by then Nintendo will have thought up a new disruptive technology which will again differenciate themselves from Sony, which Sony will again copy midway through the console cycle, keeping them on their heels trying to catch nintendo again, rinse and repeat.

I can't stress this enough though, it is VERY important that Nintendo comes up with something brand new for next gen like the Wii to differenciate themselves otherwise they WILL be outgunned by Sony and MS. They need to continue to create new innovative ideas and not try to fight in any existing market for too long or they will be out marketted by the giants Sony and MS who will continue to copy them. However, as long as Nintendo continues this cycle of new innovations for their hardware that appeals to the masses/non gamers, they should remain on top.



Oh, but they already stole the show since the moment they announced the games that would be present....See, Sony actually has games to show at TGS....
