    Crazy Question/Prediction: Will Microsoft buy SegaSammy due to $ woes?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 09 February 2008

    Blimey, I wrote this up on my blog today!! http://www.bruceongames.com/2008/02/09/sonic-trips-over/ Here is the article:Sega are one of the longest established names in the gaming industry. Since 1940 theirs is a tale of very good times, such as the 1993 arcade game Virtua Fighter. And very bad times such as the video game crash of 1983 and the demise of the Dreamcast in 2001.They own a...

    Who will be on top? PS3 vs 360

    in Sales Discussion on 09 February 2008

    The PS3 theoretically has a more powerful CPU than the 360. The problem is that it is a real bitch to develop for.The 360 has a more powerful GPU than the PS3, which evens out system performance.Activision say that the 360 will outsell the PS3 in NA this year. EA say the opposite. So it will be close. Europe likewise.In Japan, obviously the PS3 will comprehensively outsell the 360. So what we...

    Wii 30 million or xbox360 20 million, what will come first?

    in Sales Discussion on 09 February 2008

    GTA IV is going to be the biggest thing in gaming this year. Maybe ever. It is going to be many times bigger than Halo 3.But we don't know who it is going to benefit most.Sony because of the tens of millions of PS2 owners waiting to upgrade and because GTA has mainly been a Sony game in the past.Microsoft because of all that exclusive content and because they are going to spend tens of millions...

These same articles are used by two Wall Street financial analysis websites and are sometimes reprinted in MCV, the game industry trade...

    Flamebait"console War"

    in General Discussion on 08 February 2008

    People get emotionally engaged with the platform they own. So any criticism of that platform, no matter how true, is taken as a personal affront. This does not lead to sensible conversations. It is worst just now because the Wii is so different. It is just an uprated Gamecube with a nice gesture interface added. So the owners of the HD consoles look down on it. Whilst Wii owners look down on the...

    The PS3 Processor Has Been Successfully Shrunk

    in Sony Discussion on 07 February 2008

    The base PS3 will always be more expensive than the base 360 because of the hard drive. And to a lesser extent the Blu Ray drive.Microsoft engineered the 360 to be cheap to make. Then they have a high powered manufacturing cost reduction team. They too are constantly improvong their chip fabrication.Also, at the end of the day, Microsoft can much more easily afford to subsidise the selling...

    PS3 surpassing total sells of XBOX360

    in Sales Discussion on 07 February 2008

    GTA IV is going to have a massive effect on the HD console war.Will all the PS2 owners who have been holding back now buy a PS3 and keep their loyalty?Or will they be tempted over to the 360 to get all that exclusive GTA IV extra content? And Halo 3. And Live.Microsoft are going to spend many tens of millions on marketing their GTA IV exclusive content to try and ensure the second of these...

However, the combanation of:-PS3 40GB 299, PS3 120-160GB 399 -360 Arcade 249, 360 Pro 299, Elite 399-GT5P in US and EU 2 weeks before GTA4-GTA4 for both consoles -Too Human May 6-MGS4 in JuneWhen you take into account all of the price drops and games MS and Sony are rolling out around that time period, then the Wii looks like...

    Will the Wii have as many consoles as the 360 in NA by March 9th?

    in Gaming Discussion on 05 February 2008

    KBG29 said: @ the OP NO.I don't even see the Wii passing the 360 in America this year. MS and Sony will both be droping the prices on their systems to 299 sometime before the launch of GTA4. This will put them in a very competitive position with the Wii. Sony has GT5P coming 2 weeks before GTA4 and MGS4 sometime in June. Microsoft has Too Human slated for the week after GTA4. These big hits all...

    Will Microsoft's next generation controller look like this?

    in Microsoft Discussion on 05 February 2008

    There will be two next Microsoft controllers.Firstly a gesture upgrade for the PS3. Then the controller for Xbox 3.One or both of these could be your hands.Yep, the console will look at what your hands are doing in space. No buttons, no plastic.They can do it. They are looking at it. It is just a matter of if and when....

    Is the PS3 REALLY getting more AAA games than the 360 this year?

    in Gaming Discussion on 05 February 2008

    There is a huge difference between AAA games and system sellers.AAA games are very nice indeed if you own that platform but don't have much effect on the overall scheme of things.System sellers are what win the console war.Now the best system sellers are the established brands, it is rare for a new IP to be a system seller (yes I know, Halo).The PS3 appears at this stage to have a huge advantage...

    The Winning 2008 Console!!!!

    in Gaming Discussion on 05 February 2008

    You could make a case out for all three to win.The Wii because it is reaching a bigger potential demographic and has some very highly polished Nintendo games. Especially Wii Fit. The downside is the small number of genuine high quality third party titles. And the lack of HD support.The PS3 because they have a whole string of AAA titles this year. Because there are tens of millions of PS2 owners...

    Will the Wii have as many consoles as the 360 in NA by March 9th?

    in Gaming Discussion on 05 February 2008

    Brawl will be absolutely brilliant for Wii gaming fans but it will not be much of a system seller.Wii Fit will be a massive system seller because it reaches a whole new demographic.Wii will not overtake 360 by March 9th because of the maths. They aren't going to make up a near 2 million unit deficit in one month.Then there is GTA IV on April 29th which will be a massive system seller for 360 with...
