Come on soriku

serisouly resistance, ratchet, warhawk, heavenly sword vs paper mario metroid zelda and metroid, ps3 has a slight upper edge.. and growing now with the addition of call of duty 4.. But watever I enjoy them all. wii=ps3 in fun but 360 is a higher experience :D


First of all, shooters suck (including Metroid), Resistance and Warhawk are out. Ratchet is an exception. Heavenly Sword is too short for my tastes (5-6 hours for $60? Yeah right.)

So it's: Ratchet Vs. Mario and Zelda

And you put Metroid twice .

Now let's compare games I like or would like on the PS3 to Wii games I like or will like on the Wii (keep in mind this DOES NOT include rumored games, and yes BK3 and the Matsuno RPG ARE coming, not exactly rumored now. And this includes both upcoming and released games):

PS3:

FF XIII
FF Versus XIII
TLR
Disgaea 3
Eternal Sonata
DMC4
(Possibly) MGS4. Not a an of MGS, really, but I might give it a try if I had a PS3.
WKS

(I think I've missed a couple, just give me a list of upcoming RPGs)

Vs.

Wii:

Baten Kaitos 3
Disaster: DoC
MH3
SMG
SMG
PM
Zelda: TP
Fatal Frame IV (maybe, I don't think so but maybe)
FFCC: TCB
ToS: KoR
Sword of Legendia

And a bunch others I missed, but there's too many X_X

Overall the Wii has a better line-up that appeals to me than the PS3 so I prefer it.

The PS3 should be doing a lot better in 08 than in 07. Why?

-The advantage of Home, the new venture that the PS3 is starting with its Video on Demand, allowing PS3 users to download movies, which means that Sony gets to sell Sony Pictures movies without having to pay somebody else for them like microsoft has to.

-The Blu-ray should be a lot more popular in 08 than it has been this year. Lower prices for players will increase demand according to the price curve. A healthy bluray market will allow sony to produce (better) games less expensively than they are now, because BD isn't that popular yet and the more units of BD made the costs of which will go down.

-As BD gets to be more popular the value/price mental equation that consumers bring with them to help them decide whether or not a particular item is worth purchasing or not, the value or numerator portion of this heuristic will increase, meaning that the PS3 will become a lot more popular.

-The 40g model of the PS3 is going to be a big help in the 2nd and 3rd world countries, heck its going to help Sony a lot in America as far as sales go because there are plenty of consumers out there that don't care about BC and just want a cheap console.

So, give the PS3 some time and I think that it will meet your expectations for a console within a matter of months.

I think people in 3rd world countries have a few more things to worry about than game consoles...

As for give it some time, that's been the typical excuse for the past year and it will continue to be the excuse for the next year.

Reggie said it best this morning (and is exactly what people were saying months ago when they though all the big PS3 games were going to come out): Pro-tip: The system that has won after the second holiday season in market has already won the console war!

 

First of all, I disagree with your logic that because of the very true fact that most people in 3rd world countries can't buy luxuries including games,, that none at all would purchase them. In fact, the truth should be right in front of you in the "others" chart when you pop on vgchartz.com. The third world does have some people that are rich, dude.

 

 


 ..........................fail..........................

 

The percentage of "rich" people in a third world country is too insginifigant to impact this conversation. 


The original point of mine was that the inclusion of Sony making a budget model (which btw Nintendo doesn't have an option to do simply b/c it is the cheapest brand out of the 3) available gives budget consumers around the world another option that will incidently let the PS3 compete price-wise with the Wii wheras before, this was entirely unavailable.  You are aware of this idea of the demand curve where if a given company is able to drop prices on a product it will see an increase in the quantity demanded by its customers for that product, right?  jeeze, when I get into market research I'm sure that I'm going to have to argue the same kinds of things with people, but luckily they'll be more sophisticated. 



Thanks to kenobi after I got him to ban my old account (dallas) after someone hacked into it and being ok with me coming back under a slightly different username.  I appreciate our communication in the PMs.  Also I want to give a big thank you to vgchartz for being one of the cooler websites around. 

Oh, and I'm still the next Michael Pachter

Zelda almost beats the shit out of all those combined, and then you throw in metroid....

                 With regard to Call of Duty 4 having an ultra short single player campaign, I guess it may well have been due to the size limitations of DVD on the XBox 360, one of various limitations multi-platform game designers will have to take into consideration-Mike B

Game trailers-Halo 3 only dissapointed the people who wanted to be dissapointed.

Bet with Harvey Birdman that Lost Odyssey will sell more then Blue dragon did.
